It lacks only the lure of Notre Dame and the possibility the Irish may lose in a sensational upset. While few expect the Cadets to shatter the Irish hopes for a perfect season it is well to remember Ihe Cadets should benefit from their unexpected 13-13 deadlock with Penn.

Lespedeza seed will likely be more scarce in 1944 than in pnsl years. For this reason. Oliver L. Adams, county agent, advises Hempstead county farmers to harvest all the lospedeza seed possible. Even fields lhat will, yield only 50 to 75 pounds of seed per acre are worth harvesting," the county agent says. Lespedeza that is not harvested should be studied carefully between now and the time of the first frost to determine whether the crop is producing seed. By doing this a farmer will know whether a volunteer crop will be obtained next spring. If a good seed crop is set, the county agenl says, rcseeding next spring should not be necessary under ordinary conditions, and the seed that is often used to oversccd old lespedeza jusl lo ensure a stand will be saved. Very close observation is some limes necessary in order lo deler- rnine if Ihe crop is producing seed, because Ihe seed is produced by Iwo kinds of flowers. One kind of flower has purple or bluish petals, which can be seen from a distance. The other type ol flower, which is usually nol noticed, has no pclals, but this flowei often produces soec. instead of the purple flower. Waiting too long before study ing the lespedeza seed crop, the county agent says, may result ii shattering of seed, and then Hit. amount of seed produced canno be estimated. --• - - — ^w ry iy — ----Arkansas Seal Sale to Start on Nov. 22 LEO RAY, County & Probate Clerk of Hempstead County, Arkansas.

The reply from Moscow seems to be clear. There is no division, and il is Ihe scenes of the four- power conference lhal there shall be none. Secretary of State Hull, Foreign Minister Anthony Eden and Foreign Commissar Vyacheslav Molo- lov, said the joint communique had military experts along who discussed definite operations "already decided upon and now being prepared" to create a basis for Ihe closest military cooperation in the future among British, Russia and Ihe United Slates. The announcement, made simul- laneously in Moscow, London and Washington, apparenlly burst upon the Nazis before they could prepare ready - made propaganda counterblasts. In a silence which appeared paralytic, the Nazi radio said nothing of the momentous Moscow decisions for several hours except to quote straight from British broadcasts. It »vas conjectured here that military understandings reached at the conference were incidental to Ihe polilical agreements. Gains in the m Hilary field appeared to reside in a belter Russian understanding of Allied supply problems and a more closely meshed overall Allied slralegy from now on. While Ihe conference is regarded as likely to hasten the end of the war by confronting the Germans with a wall of Allied unity and by stirring up rebellion against the Nazis all over Europe, the four- oower joint declaration in which 2hina joined in considered here to oe the historic milestone for which the meeting will be remembered .he longest.

An enemy squadron of four light cruisers, accompanied by five or six destroyers, headed toward Bougainville island, but turned and fled when an American task force set out to meet them. "We hope Japanese naval forces Will come down and give us. a chance at them," said a spokesman for Admiral William F. Halsey, Jr., in predicling strong opposition on Bougainville, last major enemy holding in the Solomons. Only slight resistance was encountered by the marines who bypassed the enemy's stronghold of Buin to land on Empress Augusla bay under a screen of naval and air bombardment. Admiral Halsey's spokesman described the operation as successful, Occupation of Choiseul and Tueasury both near Buin on the southeasl lip of Bougainville, were reported progressing satisfactorily.
