L. Johnson, who passed on Monday evening at the home of her daughter, Mrs. L. L. Campbell and Mr. Campbell in Ashcville, N. C. "Miss Mollie" as the writer know her, came to Hope with her mother and brother, Dr. Louis Barton of Oklahoma City, among Hope's first settlers, and just as far back as memory will carry us, we were taught to revere "Miss Mollie" as, in the words of an old colored servant, "A Christian Lady," for her Christianity has been a lasting influence with us, and she was certainly a true Southern Lady of the old school. After the passing of Mr. Johnson several years ago, she went to live with Mr. and Mrs. Campbell, but has spent a part of each year in the old home town, and her .loyalty to Hope and Hope people was something deep and lasting. Tliis late summer, when she prepared to return to Ashville, after a summer's visit in her old home, she called the writer and asked her to announce in her column, that she was going back to Ashville, and would not be buck for her annual visit as hereto-fore, in other words, she was saying 'good bye."

Not since the first few years after tho World war has congress permitted Treasury money to be lent to a foreign government. All those loans were made in Europe and all are in default except the email one to Finland. Those countries cannot even borrow from private investors in this country because of the Johnson Act. None of the Latin-American countries owes the-- Treasury any money, although several have borrowed extensively from private investors in this country. When the depression sent a largo part of the Latin-American securities into default, private loans from this country largely dried up and only Argentina has borrowed here in the last few years. In the first 10 months of this year,sales of American goods to Latin- America amounted to about $520,000,000, compared with ?2,711,067,000 to the worl das a whole. In the same period, the United States bought $622,000,000 from Latin-America and 52,651,745,000 from the world.

And I imagine most i Snapshot Guild members, knowing )iow much the camera hobby has meant to them, will choose gifts that help others enjoy the fun of picture-making. There are many such gifts, but they should be selected wisely: The gift must, by all means, be usel'ul— and suited to the person who receives it. Thus, it would he unwise to give an advanced type of camera to a beginner. Rather, give him—if a young child—a simple box camera or if around high school ape—a folding camera. A book on how to make good pictures can well accompany each camera gift; there is a popular one for but fifty cents. Theu later ou, after he learns the elements o£ picture-taking, he can better use a superior camera with fast lens and wider picture-making range. For your fellow hobbyist's, camera accessories are ideal gifts. For example, few hobbyists have enough color filters. A choice of several fil- ters is desirable, if special picture •effecfs are to be obtained. Your friend may have a K-l or K-2 filter for everyday use, yet need a light green X-l filter for obtaining superior tone quality in outdoor scenes and informal portraits. He may also need a G or A filter for dramatic sky effects, or for clear-cut pictures of; distant scenes. A needed filter would be an appropriate gift to him. Many hobbyists go ou excursions carrying camera and film in their pockets. A camera case would be- convenient for them, and an appropriate gift. Some camera fans use old, uone-too-steady tripods. New, firm tripods would delight them Christmas morning. Such small gadgets as a lens-shade, a self-timer attachment, or a portrait attachment for close-up pictures are inexpensive gifts—yet much appreciated. And while we're on the subject— there may be gadgets or equipment you need for your own use. If so, now is the time to begin hinting for them. A word dropped here and there will often work wonders along about December 25. It's certainly worth trying! Jolm van Guilder Farm Program Praised by Farm Bureau Head NEW ORLEANS— Iff)— Edward A.
