The meeting was called o order at 10:00 a. m. by County Jouncil President, Mrs. Earlic Mc- iVilliams. Opening song "Amerca". Mrs. Mark Jnckson led the jroup singing. Welcome address Large Onions Grown From Onion Sets, Harvested in August Most Victory gardens will grow onions, from sets or seed. Sets are merely dwarfed onions, grown last year in crowded rows which prevented them from developing normal size. They are grown from the same seed that produces large onions. Their advantage over seed is in the time they take to grow to usable size. They will produce green onions in three weeks, and mature onions in three months. From 15 to 30 pounds of large onions can be grown from a pound of onion sets which do not average over Ihrec-quarlcrs of an inch in diameter. To grow large onions, sow small sets an inch deep; and to grow spring or green onions, to be eaten before bulbs begin to form, sow larger sets two or three inches deep. Bermuda onion planls are started in Ihe southern stales, pulled up when as large as a lend pencil and shipped norlli to be planled in gar dens, green They should be when you plant fresh and Ihcm and should not be set out for a week or Lwo after your first seed crops have been planted. To grow mature onions, space these plants four inches apart, in rich soil. Green onions may be grown from seeds, sown with the first crops. It lakes much longer to produce either green or mature onions from seeds than from sets. Sow fairly Ihickly, and cover half an inch, and Ihin out Ihe young planls early. If you are growing for green onions, space Ihem an inch apart As they attain a usable size, they can be used, and planls may be left slanding four inches apart to malure. When Ihe onion tops grow limp and fall over, it is a sign that the bulbs are malure. They need not be pulled at once, but when they are harvested they should be dried several days in the sun and stored in a well ventilaled place. A rich soil is required to grow large onions from seed. A balanced plant food should be applied at Ihe rale of a pint lo 25 feet of row, raked well into the top soil before planting. Kid Swipes Army Plane London iA'i — A 14 year old apprentice fitter, who builds model planes, now knows how it feels to fly » real U. S.

The dog always barked back. Sam Old Excuse St. Louis — Missouri motorists and office boys whose grandparents die with alarming frequency each baseball season have much in common, the slate gasoline rationing board has decided. Noting wilh the advent of spring a flood of requests for cxlra gasoline wilh which lo attend funerals, William H.

Pat Friday, Plane ways, seemed to be What's more, Pat Number 10! ... Oh my God, PAT!" Capt. James Can-, U. S. Army pilot of the motor ship towing a sky train, was frantically trying to gel a radio c o m m u n i c a I i o n through. He yelled at his microphone while the ship droned and bucked and twisted in Ihe storm over Superstition Mountain. He gritted his teeth, threw electric switches, twisted dials. Beside him, Lornine Stuart was white with fear, but he ignored her presence. "PAT!" he shrieked again. "Number 10 ... Pul!" In technical truth, that frantic cry of his did get through to Patsy, struggling now in thai same storm. She heard him, and she Iricd lo answer. II was Jimmy's receiving apparatus that hud gone temporarily dead. But then, her own radio, both fluclualing. couldn't spare the time to try to tune it. From her position as tail- end ship of the train, she had cut loose with astonishing courage. Her plane had dipped. The gusty blow had caught her unprepared. "Eee-e-e-e-e!" She shrieked there in the loneliness. For a mailer of seconds she rolled sidewise. And it look all the skill and strength she could muster to right the ship again. When she came out of it she could see no sign of the parent train, because the cloud around her was streaked, streaming, boiling. Lightning darted through it. Oddly, in this moment of stress she remembered what a newspaper reporter had told her about Superstition Mountain. "The Indians say the Thunder Gods live up there," he had said, "and it's a fact, because on stormy days you can listen and hear them pounding their garganluan tom- toms." She heard the tom-toms now. Off right, then left. Assailing her ears, crashing against clouds and against the earth itself. She felt infinitesimal, and indeed she was exactly lhat compared to the bulk and anger of Nature here. "If I can . . . keep a ... level head," she was pleading with herself. The cloth and aluminum sailplane she piloted was a wisp of straw. Wind whined outside the transparent hood like banshees wailing. Daylight came through Ihe storm at intervals, showing gray nothingness ahead and all around. Lightning intensified that same blank oblivion. "Jimmy! , Number 10 Captain Carr! reporting!" She- jiggled radio dials. Even as she did so she knew she was wasting time. The set was completely dead. She had watched her altimeter with greatest care. That delicate needle had shown 12,200 feet when she cut loose from Ihe low line. It had dropped a little. Then Pat had remembered Superstilion Mountain be- nealh, so she soared widely, seeking a thermal, an up-current of air. * * * CHE found il! Whr-r-r-r-r-r-r! It was verily like a volcano's force, this storm thermal, for her craft shot upward so fast her ears pained. Twelve thousand eight hundred. Thirteen six. Fourteen. She watched the needle, and looked fearfully through the hood for any sign of earth at all, any possible mountain peak or crag. Fifteen eight ninety. Sixteen thousand. Pat was beginning to suffer acutely from cold and Tariffed air now. Three miles above earth can be terrific. She had to fight the controls in an effort lo go back down, and she was afraid to go down with visibility at zero. "I've got to think!" she literally spoke aloud, to herself. "That . . . that chart! ... It said the highest peak in Superstition was only 5080 feet! And My goodness! and even San Francisco Peaks, in northern Arizona, are only 12,000. . . . What am I doing up here!" She was up there because she couldn't help herself, and she knew it. For one thing, she knew Jimmy had tried lo ride above the storm. He hadn't succeeded. Because she knew she must be very near Globe, her original destination, she had cut loose. But the thermal lifls had been too powerful. Now her allimeter was galloping left to right; galloping and bouncing so as to be of no possible use. "I might be 100 feet or 100,000!" Pat breathed, desperately. She knew she was somewhere under the three-mile point. But where? The needle tried to settle at 14,000 and again at 11,600, but in a single instant it shot up to 20,000, then back again. Pat knew it was off. But it was all she had to go by, and she almost pleaded with the thing. A good quarter-hour must have passed before Pat realized fully that the instrument was functioning, after all. The truth was, she had been looping, twisling, side slipping. Unconsciously she and her ship had done all manner o£ "impossible" things. Seasoned pilots, even motor ship pilots, could have told her lhat storm experiences are like that. You soon become a part of the wind and action, your ship gives with it, tumbles with it, weaves with it, and because you are strapped in, you don't fully realize all that is going on. If you didn't give way, you'd be and de- weave this stroyed! That all came back to Pal's mind. Lectures! Things Jimmy Carr and that Captain Wilier and old Colonel Surely! She Furedy had remembered said, now. Those intensified courses she had taken back in Elmira. She had had to sit near Loraine Stuart, and had borne many of Loraine's petty slighls. Here, in a real slorm 2000-odd miles from Elmira, those slights seemed trivial indeed. So did all of the pettiness concerning Loraine. Loraine, who was still with Jimmy, flying with him, loving him, betrolhed to him for life. Jimmy, whom she herself had so poignantly loved and, in her heart, loved still. This backward streaming of her thoughts served oddly to bring Pat a new feeling of calm. "But I can't stay up here in it forever!" she told herself. "I haven't the equipment nor the food nor the strength for an endurance tesl. Anyway I—I want lo land, near Globe!" That goal stuck doggedly in her. It was a part of the plan. A part of Jimmy's project for Ihe sky Irain. Her assigned task from the beginning. During a momenlary lull Pat flipped her conlrols and nosed down. The allimeler reacted fast. Ten thousand. Nine Seven thousand two thousand, hundred. Five thousand eight sixty. Five Iwo ten. She decided she had beller look hard. The storm was a bit softer •here and—yes, there was a glimpse of mother earth! She headed downhill again. But all at once, a minute later— "Oh-h-h-h-h!" She screamed it, jerking her controls. There dead ahead was the ominous red bulk of rock wall, (To Be Continued) The Boyd Chapel home demon- slralion club held Iheir March meeling wilh Miss Lucia Boyd.
