A lot of writing fellows have gone to jail for trivial reasons. For instance, one Turkish sultan had a big nose—and so the word VPose" was forbidden entirely in the public press,; In Turkey it's against the law for newspapers to mention any thing about a private' cltizen'9 affairs—and it's worth nine years in jail to mention a public official unfavorably. Nor may you debate the goodness or badness of Turkey as a nation. Just the other day the editor of its largest newspaper was brought court on a charge of insulting nation—merely because he criticized the Turks' use of slang. However, on this occasion the Istanbul judges, being educated men themselves, sided with the editor .and let him off. But it was a close thing for kish journalists— No nose. . . no scandal. . slang.

With this installment Britain's indebtedness to this country would be cut to $4,584,000,000 from post-war high of $5,217,000,000. Of this payment, some 84 million was earmarked to cover in terest and 54 million principal. The payment a draft from the ,rik of England to the Federal Iserve Bank in New York will apply on a 3-b il lion-dollar loan extended in 1946 to spark Britain's postwar recovery. Britain has until the year 2,001 to repay it. However, the British also owe the United States some $7,7S3,000,- COO in World War I debts. These ere in default. The last payment Cri them was made Dec. 15, 1933.

FAY WASHINGTON (/P) —More than 250 changes have bsen made in the supercarrier Forrostal sinve workmen started building the 60,000-ton island of steel 2% years ago. But the Navy predicts the eventual total cost will remain close to the present estimated cost $197,{.'59.000. ' Congress in 1951 earmarked $218,G39,OCO for building the first of the giant-size flattops. "The cost will be way below th amount set aside by Congress, even with the changes," a spokeu- man said today. "There, will be a substantial amount of money re turned to Ccngrers." The revamping of eciuipmen.t ranged from simplified supports for cables which saved weight and money from origin alestimates to the addition cf steam catapults «md an angled flight deck which cost more money. Some of the changes were made in the blueprint stage that is, before work started on the parts of the ship involved, others, however necessitated tear out work already done. One of the costlier changes has been the decision to move the "JST land" superstructure from its present location to a point farther outboard on the starboard right side. The Navy estimates this will cost about ?300 000 to $400,000. normal few people inquire, but ,when extremes occur the telephone at your Fruit and Truck Branch Experiment Station starts ringing. This is as it should,be since the Experiment Station keeps the official weather records lor the U ( S. Weather Bureau. Some years ago, Mark Twain said "Everyone talks about the weather, but no one does anything about it." Today the weather is the .chief topic of conversation in Hompstead County and the world over. This is particularly true during the periods of extreme temperatures, rainfalls and weather hazards including snowfalls, cyclones, floods and dust storms. Naturally ,the weather is a vital topic, as it has a very direct bearing on the Jjealth, temperament and general welfare of individuals and communities. Perhaps you would be interested jn knowing something about the instruments, which the weather Bureau maintains at your Fruit and Truck Branch Experiment Sta- jtion in cooperation with the tfni- yersity of Arkansas, and how they are read and recorded. At present we are recording maximum and minimum temperatures, soil temperature, total wind movement, daily evaporation from a free water surface, 'rainfall, both hourly and dally, dally prfevailing ,wind direction, condition' of day as cloudy, partly cloudy or clear, and other unusual weather', phenomena such as severe storms, frosts, etc. All these are recorded on.,, a 24 hour basis and the, instruments" are read around 8 a. m. each day.* The local newspaper , publishes' some of this information' mainly temperatures .and rainfall which are recorded at Jhe'Experiment Station. The maximum thermometer is constructed similar to'a fever' thermometer which, a' dpctdp us'es or which you may |iftyef'|n|your home., about _., heating the < service. •Wie A present plans" wi fepproVal,- fegli:fo*i, , of inductees dOrtiplefc rtiontbs -• '-!i.<j"iA-£«- May ni 'The' draftee June. i "i; , The Atmji comparable, for lieu 24 i fleers iSddii and • The" e part of to cut fcthe;$M8]!ffi j< ^—j/j,%!

Each morning when the thermo-, meters are read, the 'temperatures Accorded are for the preceding day and night. In fact we record three emperatures — Maximum, mm- mum. and maximum set which is he temperature at 8 a. m, This ast temperature is primarily a check by the Weather Bureau on the observer. After the thermometers are set the maximum temperatures cannot drop dower than the maximum set, nor can the minimum emperature go higher than the naximum set. In other words the maximum thermometer can only •egister a temperature the same as or higher than the maximum set and likewise the minimum" thermometer can only register 4 emperature the same as or ower than the maximum set. To illustrate this, let us take De« :ember 29th reading which emperatures for the 28th and lasti light. The high or maximum was 2. the low or minimum wfis 33, and he maximum set or temperature t 8 a. m, was 33, When the read? ngs are made on the 30th the max* mum cannot be lower than 33 and 10 minimum cannot be higher han this same temperature, Using another illustration let us ssume that the high yesterday lorning was 30 degrees, nd the maximum set 4' hat the coldest period was right t the time of observation.
