Spurns Low for Soil His early life on the ranch branded im as a son of the soil and not even a college education and a lawyer'* hingle has influenced him to leave t. He preferred, or did until Demo- ratic leaders of Corpus Christi convinced him to run for Congress, to oam and manage his vast holdings. That he has a real job on his hands can be seen by the size of the'ranch.

These animals have a high resistance to the ordinary cattle ills prevalent among others in this section.' ' !-'.'.. It takes three hours to ride across this ranch by train. One .can see how difficult it would be for one crew to handle all the activities of the ranch. Four or five of them are maintained. Each conducts separate roundups and ships its cattle on a railroad which Ouachita County Plans to Rebuild Courthouse CAMDKN, Ark.—The commission on rebuilding the Ouachita'county cyUrt- house will be announced Monday, Judge, Watt.

THE NEWFANGLES, by Wood Cowan; is an example of what happens when the public enthusiastically seizes a new idea^ This popular "comic * strip formerly ""was called MpM'N POP, and for years' young Chick Gunn^was the son of.his father and nothing'more. Then'Chicle' got married. Me and Gladys, his bride; immediately captured the spotlight for' themselves. The other characters .were 1 relegated to the background. t . -» Since Chick and Gladys had "stolen the show/ 1 Artist Cowan decided to re-christen the strip, He chose THE NEWFANGLES as an expression of the personality and the spirit of his youthful and modern newlyweds. i He chose wisely. Chick and Gladys are decidedly "newfangled." They are, furthermore, one of the most famous married couples in the world.

Soon after the colony got under way officials of the Korean govern- nent visited the group of Outcasts at Soonchun and saw the benefits that were being derived from it. As a result of their visit, and others that were made later, the government was nduced to undertake half of the financing Incident to the care and feed- ng, of the inmates, further enabling !>r.
