Tujjwell. The chief of the Resettlement Administration reported the trial "cases" Would be chosen from four parts of the South. The experiment, he said, should "be on indication' of what can be, done in n national way to solve the tetjnnt problem." Tugwell said that he expected to ha,Ve. this and other wide segments of his resettlement plan underway by the time next year's' crops luiv'c been planted. "It has always been our intention," Tugwell said, "to hnve the resettlement work a function -of the Department of AgricuMurc. It obviously is n port of agricultural adjustment, and'' It has to do almost exclusively with farmers, "We have been studying the proposed Banhhcaci-Jones farm tenant bill, which was designed to enable tenants to become landowners. We find that wo can do in a small way what this bill intends. What we will do will come under the classification of our resettlement and rehabilialion work." North Carolina, South Carolina, and the area embracing the where boundaries of Arkansas, War Threatens (Continued from page one) and Louisiana touch have .Jeen .designated for the selection of specific sections for the tenant trial. The plan calls for the administration to buy land and resell it to the tenants under a long term agreement. The agreement, Tupwell said, probably would run not more than 40 years In some cases .tenants would be sold the land they now are cultivating. In others, they might be given an opportunity to move to some nearby farm. Farms sold to the tenants would remain under supervision of Extension 'Service and resettlement officials during the period of the loans, and administration help would be expected to assist the tenants to gain a self- supporting basis. had considered making Lij Yasu the emperor if their invasion were successful, and that they even had attempted to kidnap him from captivity for this purpose some years ago. Selassie Into Mourning A distant cousin of the emperor and a grandson of former Emperor Menu- Ilk, Lij Yasu, 38, died of a lingering Illness, it was said. Halle Selassie, who became regent when Lij Yasu was deposed in 191fi. went Into mourning for his predecessor. The present emperor as regent shares the throne with Queen Znudltu, Lij Yasu's mint, who was 1he daughter of Menelik. The great Emperor Menelik, who built Ethiopia into a strong state from a group of semi-independent kingdoms, had nominated Lij Yasu ns his successor before his death in 1913. Reigned Without Crown Internal rivalries prevented Lij Ynsu's ever being formally crowned, hut'he'todk the reigns of government. During his three-year rule, his inclination toward Islam antagonized his subjects, who are proud of their 15 centuries of Christian tradition. The Ethiopian church excommunicated him in 1916, and the great rases (chieflinns) deposed him, proclaiming Zaitlitu ns empress and Ras Tafari (now known as Hailc Selassie) ns regent. Ras Tafari had married Waiznro Ne- nen, who also had direct descent from Menelik, and thus had a claim to the throne which somewhat paralleled that of Lij Yasu. Forces Slaughtered Lij Yasu was not content to be One report had it that. Lij Yasu wa allowed great comforts, and tha though he was fastened by chains they were of gold. For a while it waa toiight he was held In the emperor'i own palace in Addis Ababa, to prevent kidnaping by the Italians. Cotton Certificates (Continued f«*m page one) iluce about 50 per cent of their allotment this year, they should take advantage of this opportunity and surrender their certificates to the pool. Cotton producers in Nevada county received $43,353.80 from the sale of surplus certificates through the national pool in 1934. The national pool will sell these certificates to producers in other states at the rate of 4 cents per pound but the cost of operating the pool will be ileducled from total sales but we do lot feel ns though producers should lave any fear as to what the cost of landling the certificates by the na- ional pool might be. as they were lancllocl so very cheaply last year. To 30 exact, the cost was $.00041 per louncl of fax-exemption sold, or in nore easily conceived figures ?.041 per lundred pounds sold.

Dana said, "Oh, Nancy. I've never seen yo,» f look so sweet!" Nancy, still standing lu the doorway, hesitated. Tben she said brusquely, "Cut the compliments. I suppose you livon't looked at /ourself?" "Do you like me, Nnncy?" The question was anxious. The other girl's eyes narrowed apprafslngly, taking In Dana's beauty. Yes, Grandmother had done a darn good Job. It knocking Ron nle Moore cold with beauty would win a proposal from him, the trick was done. "Well, what do you think?" Nancy asked, avoiding a direct an swer to her sister's question. "It's a nice dress all right—on you." "Yours Is exactly like It." "Oh, 1 know. I'm not complain ing about the dress. If it bad an other face and figure inside It, the dress would probably make a hit. Nancy's volco was dry and median .leal, but Dana guessed this was only a disguise for emotion. "You're being silly," she said. "It you only know bow you really look!" "How do I look?" Nancy asked. Dana thought, "She isn't exactly pretty, but there's something aw fully attractive about ber. Something exciting. It's as though you were looking at a volcano, about to explode, No, you couldn't possibly overlook Nancy In a crowd." Aloud, Dana said, "You look like a charming elf tbat bas been lan Cled up In a cloud and then come floating down to earth." "Your fairy-tale lore Is a little Nancy told her. "Elves ijoo't Inhabit clouds. They are, or were supposed to be, very earthly people, and I don't recall they bad any special charm or good looks.

The cakes Hattie Washington bad been molding so cleverly all afternoon were beautiful with their (luted edges and dainty flower decorations. At night, with the crystal chandeliers blazing down, most of the drahness of the big reception room was concealed, and the shining surfaces of fine old furniture were revealed. The worn rugs had been removed for dancing and flowers from the garden had been brought in ahuu- dantly, adding color. In Dana's mind the party had just one (law. She had hoped to invite the attractive young doctor to this party, but her grandmother had turned thumbs down on the suggestion — so vehemently Dana had been surprised. "Scott He Stanley's been away so long, he's almost a stranger here," Mrs, Cameron bad said. "He bas a long way to go If he's going to amount to anything as a doctor. Besides I can't invite every Tom, Dick and , ! Iarry in this town." That bad been that. Still it was going to be a lovely party- Dana touched the orchids on her shoulder caressingly.

Nor was U like bose parties, tinged by Bohemian- sm, In which ber father had par- icipated occasionally after her mother's death—parties from wblcb bad been caref^u-Uy. excluded , Everything here was bright, cheerful, colorful and informal. Girls and boys of Dana's own age, laughing, talking, almost drowning out the band's playing at times. They worn all the "right young people," her grandmother had made plain. They ail "belonged." Their fathers, or uncles or cousins had memberships in the Country Club. Moving about as she had lu her childhood, always living In different houses, Dana had given little thought to such things as clubs. Here ii; tills southern city, they evidently couiued for a great deal. Grandmother had said: "Ronnie's only 24. But he lias his own membership in the Country Club. He is a member of 'The Maskers,' and if you play your cards right that will menn another big party tor you. He belongs to the College too, and a smait dinner group." It was funny for Grandmother to be so interested in the social activities of another generation, but there wasn't a thing that was social that she missed. Evidently Dan* was playing her cards right. Whenever she whirled into the south room where Mrs. Cameron sat surrounded by contemporaries Dana met ber grandmother's pleased smile. "The girl can't get two steps that Ronnie Moore doesn't cut lu," whispered one dowager, whose eye's were acid as they rested on U8U4 "There's something about foreign girls, especially French girls, that men can't resist. What chances have our daughters who aren't trained iu all those foreign trickst" "1 guess sbe bas bim booked." whispered another mother.

Farmers' Income Up millions All Areas Ahead of Last Year Except the South- Southwestern By WILLIAM S. WHlfE AssoclHdd Press Correspondent WASHINGTON-(/p)-The government, casting up the American farmer's books as he heads into the last quarter of the year, finds he may celebrate Thanksgiving with his ledgers $1^,000,000 heavier on the black side from regular income—exclusive of benefit payments—than in 1934. The U. S. bureau of agricultural economics says farmers took h?.- for the first nine months of 1935 from, the sale of principal products ?4,304,000,000, = compared with $4,127,000,000 last year Mrs. Oscar Montgomery were dinner and $3,400,000,000 for 1933. Too, ben- guests of Mrs. M. H. Montgomery FrU efit payments for this year at the ' latest tabulation were running well ahead of last year—$349,614,000 against $250,369,000, In this kind of income, 'the countryman was around $1000,000,000 richer than in 1934. Two Sections Lose In the last month of the period' September—cash receipts from crops declined; 'about 8 per cent, heaviefc marketings not offsetting lower prices; 'but a 19, per cent jump in income from livestock more than made up the deficit All save two sections of the country —the south Atlantic and south central —shared in the rise. Both these areas, comprising the old solid'south with a few border states thrown' in, felt off. Lower cotton prices took a heavy share of the blame. Every region, says the bureau, found extra money coming in from livestock. Meat prices were good and marketings heavier. Eggs brought in more profits; so did dairy products. Receipts By Areas As is unual, seasonal fluctuations in receipts were more marked in the southern states than elsewhere. Jn Dixie cotton and tobacco are the main sources of revenue and the money really pours in only in the marketing season for those products. Here are the bureau's figures as to cash receipts from sale of principal farm products, benefit payments not included, by sections: North Atlantic, comprising all of New England, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania: $518,155,000 this more than a Mi/lion cars in 1955 , i known that if you hadn't I'd bat» come after you, I've been here nearly an bour, wondering bow 1 was to manage H.
