Committees have heretofore served without remuneration for either time or travel expense. In the future, however, the Resettlement Administration will reimburse members for actual "out of pockets' 'expenses while engaged in debt adjustment work. The Regional Debt Adjustment Unit of the Resettlement Administration, headed by A. L. Gablcr of Little Rock, is working closely with the State Agricultural Advisory Board in farm debt adjustment work in Arkansas. Field men have been assigned in Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana who will do contact and investigation work in the field. The county committees will be called together twice a month to staudy cases proposed for settlement, heai both sides of the problems and arrange harmonious settlements where possible. Sit as Arbitrators "The county debt adjustment committees and field men find themselves in the unique position of the lawyer who is representing both sides of a lawsuit," said Mr. Gablcr in ox- plaining the- work. "We are representing the Interests of both the creditor and debtor and are trying to work out a sensible .solution to the- problem that will be more profitable to nil concerned." ^ "We have found that in n surprising Pnumber of such cases al Ithat is necessary for a sensible adjustment is to bring the debtor and creditor together _ before a group of impartial citizens ' and reason the problem out together."

It can be epitomized in a few words: Defer action as long as possible The background of this young man is, of course, quite different from that of the old man. He was seven when this country entered the World war. He has no firsthand knowledge of war profits, nor of the easy-money days of the war aftermath. . . . The actual viewpoint of this young man • is difficult to ffrasp, but quite important to understand. . . . His starting point is the worst years of the depression. He is acutely conscious of each slight upswing over that level. And each slight swing upward feeds his optimism. . . . The group that Is swayed by the contrasts between today and '29 is numerically strong, but the years are changing that. Six have passed since the first crash of August, '29. And each of these years has seen the injection of several hundred thousand young men into business •—young men to whom depression years are normal years' and to whom each improvement in business, however slight, spells new opportunities. . . .

Government estimates put turkey production for this year at about 15,000,000. against 17,250.000 for last year and 18,740,000 for 1933.

Where Production Slipped The sharpest production decrease this year was reported for the leading producing area, the south centeral states, where numbers are down, says the department, about 25 per cent, due principally to a short crop in Texas.

Officially designated as the proto col room, it is the repository for copies of treaties concluded between this and other countries since the foundation of the American republic. These few yellowing pages of parchment, comprising a treaty of commerce and navigation between the United States and Italy, contain a provision that the treaty shall remain in force one year from the day notice of intention to terminate is given by one cf the contracting parties. Neither the Uited Stales nor Italy as yet has given such notice. It is only one of the priceless documents to be found in this sequestered nook at the state department. Documents Guarded The state department watches over these precious treaties with the great- eft, care. No one except research students ever are admitted to the protocol room, and these only after they have satisfied the custodians they arc qualified and previously have'.examined all printed material on the treaty they wish to study. The documents are fragile. The diplomatic history of America is contained in them. There is, for example, the Louisiana Purchase treaty, signed by Napoleon Bonapart, on parchment enclosed between heavy purple velvet covers. It is scaled by a cord of silk passing through the pages and imbedded nt the other end in scaling .wax. "The whole treaty rests in a circular box of gold which weighs more than one pound. There is the treaty signed by Queen Victoria shortly after the Civil war, sealed in similar fashion. It, too, is enclosed in a silver box about twice the size of the French one in gold. The original manuscripts containing ratification of the Constitution are there with their priceless signatures. May Be Moved A treaty with 12 Indian tribes signed by George Washington in 1776 is deposited there, as Well as thu formal request of the King of Burma in 1830 tor a treaty with the United Sates because he feared the growing power of Great Britain. One of the most interesting is the treaty signed with the Ottoman empire in 1830. It stands three feet high and two feet wide. The text starts far below the center in order that apace j might be left for Allah to insert anything he pleased. Eventually these historic documents may be removed from state department to the magnificent new archives building on Pennsylvania avenue, where more adequate and safer space has been provided.

Billions Divided, One Quarter Spent Virtually All of 4 Billions for Recovery Campaign Is Allocated WASHINGTON— (/!')— The Treasury rc-porlod Monday night that virtually all the $4,000,000,000 work relief fund has been allocated, but only a quarter spent. The department inserted a new sheet of figures in a routine financial statement which showed $3,700,874,289 allocated by the president on which Treasury warrants have been ap- ;' proved; another ?219.733,866 allocated j but awaiting warrant approval and j $39.391.845 unallocated. The figures were as of October 31. Payments on the basis of .'checks issued," through that date were only $1.100.641.160. Secretary Morgenlhau told a press conference the new figures would be available monthly hereafter in the Treasury condition statement.

Sportsmen Wrote in Asking About Wounded Deer » Two years ago, readers saw in this newspaper a picture which touched more hearts than any photograph which had appeared in years. It depicted a wounded fawn beside its dead mother—an eloquent sermon against the thoughtless cruelly inflicted by careless hunters. / The picture—reprinted upper right just as it appeared two years ago, with the heading and outlines which accompanied it—struck so deeply into human pity and resentment that it drew a deluge of comment from readers of this newspaper and of other newspapers throughout the United States and Canada to whom the picture was furnished by NEA Service, Inc. Sportsmen, conservationists, friends of animals everywhere directed attention to the picture for the moral it carried. It was reprinted widely. Newspapers were flooded with requests for copies of the photo. Hunters secretly .vowed they:, would not. be the cause'of such a scene—they would look for the'-antlers before they shot! And now comes the picture's sequel, the photograph, at the right below, of the wounded fawn—George, he's called—now grown to a 2'^-year-old five- point buck, his head lifted proudly, but his left hing leg permanently crippled by the blast from the unknown hunter with the itching trigger-finger. Mother Shot Down; The story of the fawn's injury and of kind-hearted conservation men's care in nursing the orphan to maturity runs like this: Two years ago, George was a tiny fawn, soft and spotted, and little larger than a collie dog. He was ambling through the snow-covered pine woods near West Branch, Mich., with his mother, a fine, sleek doe who had always taken good care of her baby. Without warning, there came a sudden loud crashing sound, and George's mother staggered, fell to her knees, and collapsed in the snow. Her big eyes, still wide open as she lay there motionless, saw nothing. She was dead. George couldn't run away. A heavy slug from the hunter's gun had struck him at the joint of the left hind leg. All he could do was drag himself near to his mother's still-warm body and lie there, dumbly suffering. George was too young to know about hunters and rifles. He could not understand that some hunter, ignoring the law and every rule of the woods, had shot his mother, never looking for the antlers that would have marked his target as a buck, and hence legitimate prey. Ashamed, frightened, or merely callous? Which of these was the hunter who sneaked away, leaving George by his dead mother's side to starve, or to freeze to death, or be eaten by .some other prowling beast? Rescued by Ranger Death was hovering very close above George when a state conservation ranger came along. He snapped the now-famous photograph, then took George away to safety and nursed him slowly back to life and health. But George couldn't run and soar ever fences and creeks like other deer. His left hind leg was pitifully twisted and drawn up by the injury inflicted by the hunter's bullet. lielcarned" to get about somehow, not with the effortless grace of the other deer, but on three legs, dragging the useless and shattered fourth leg. Within the Ogeinaw Game Refuge, he was safe. The conservation men and the regular hunters learned to know the crippled buck which came down to the feeding grounds morning • and evening for corn and ginger- j snaps. Elaine Brunna, game-keeper, and his wife made something of a special pet of George. i George Is Safeguarded • Of eourfc, George can't read the j signs that mark out the limit of the j garni, refuge. He formed the habit,; with other dear, of ranging off the ; reservation and going to Clear Lake to ; beg food from cottagers. i That would probably be fatal now. | di'ring the hunting season, for Go-n'sje, : wi'h his lame leg, wouldn't stand even i the chance that other deer have against hunters.

Stanley, county agent. The seasonal exports tabulated a gain of 62,000 bales, indicating that August and September exports were running behind the same two months of last year. Exports in October 1934 were 592,000 bales; in 1935, 711,000 bales. W. B. Camp, Assistant Director, Division of Cotton, in explaining reasons for the increase and also in pointing out difficulties in the channels of exporting cotton, said: "This increase in exports is due in some degree to the change in the U. S. cotton loan policy which has made E larger percentage of American cotton available to World trade. On November 1, but 33,193 bales had gone into the 10-cent loan. The change in loan policy also has brought the price of American cotton more nearly in line with the prices of all foreign cotton. "Another factor entering into the increase of exports of American cotton was the depiction last year of the foreign supply of American cotton; more was consumed from stocks than was purchased. "While there are many reasons why foreign countries have not been ti king their normal quantity of American cotton, one of the main diffieulties has been in the matter of obtaining foreign exchange.
