The loss of sugar from Cuba throws open the United States to standing because it would cost more to pull them down than could be obtained for the brick, is what remains of the building which was the Arkansas Valley's pride and joy for many a decade. The reason it stands in decadence is that the company that bought it as a going concern said grow beets on thousands of addi-1 it could ship beets to its Color tional acrec. But there are lots of things to consider as to increasing acreage and building refineries. That old windowless shell just west of Garden, bare walls left ado mills cheaper than it could modernize this one, perhaps at a million dollar cost. That was in 1955, and since then not a beet has been sliced in Kansas. Garden's huge refinery turned Conard Studio THE OLD SUGAR beet factory and a field of beets near it.

(AP)—A fierce gale battered more than 1,000 miles of the Pacific coast Thursday taking three lives. The same stretch of coast braced for an equally strong storm today. The fringe of the storm was expected to wash out the scheduled World Series game at San Francisco, where Weather Bureau forecasters said there was a 90 per cent chance of rain. Forecasters said the storm front probably would reach Coos Bay, Ore., in late afternoon. Wind gusts up to 90 miles an hour were recorded on the Oregon coast Thursday in the storm that stretched from Northern California to British Columbia.

".May this thought of tliu reckoning Uiat they arc to face spur them to omit no effort to achieve this blessing, which for the human family is a blessing greater than any other," the pontiff said. The 80-year-old ruler of the Roman Catholic Church spoke at a special audience for the envoys sent to the Vatican by 8.5 governments for the opening of the Roman Catholic Church's 21st Ecumenical Council. With Michelangelo's awesom" "Last Judgment" as a backdrop, the pontiff told the envoys assem- bled in the Sistine Chapel that war today would "mean the destruction of humanity." He called attention to the vast fresco, "the seriousness of which gives one much food for tlvou;ht" and warned, "We must indeed render an account to God." Let the leader, of the world, the pontiff said, "continue to meet each other in discussions anil reach just and generous agreements that they faithfully observe." "Let them be ready to make sacrifices that are necessary to save the world's peace," he said. "Thrf nations will then be able to work in an atmosphere of serenity. All the discoveries of science will assist progress and help to make life on this earth, which is already marked by so many other inevitable sufferings, ever.more delightful." The Pope's audience was the main activity in the Vatican to- ; day. No council session was scheduled, and the 2,700 prelates here for the conclave turned their attention to lining up candidates for the 10 commissions, of 24 members each, that will debate the issues before this greatest church meeting in modern times. Balloting starts Saturday in St. Peter's Basilica and will continue through three more private council sessions spaced through next week. The council fathers will elect 16 members of each commission. Pope John will pick the rest. The pontiff thus can ensure active participation on the commissions of bishops—such as those from remote regions in Africa and Asia— who cannot line u.j enough geographical support for election. Once the commissions are formed, the work of the council ; will shift into high gear. In the | week starting Oct. 21 the prelates will meet five times in plenary j sessions. i They will have much to do. ' Prior to the opening of the Church's 21st Ecumenical Conn- ! cil, preparatory ccmmissions ' drew up 70 draft schemes or top- j ics representing abstracts of nearly 9,000 different proposals received in a poll of the world episcopate. . New matters raised in council discussions may also he included on thu agenda. Th ( i council is concerned with Christian unity anil the place of the Church in this age of enormous scientific, economic and political development. The discussions will touch on every impor- ; taut aspect r>f life iji today's ' changing world. Four Escapers Still on Run ADRIAN, Mich. (AP) — Neil Hannewuld led three other fugitives from the Kansas Industrial Reformatory into the home of Ins parents n«ar Adrian Thursday. They stole $111 and continued their flight. Hannewald and his companions escaped early Wednesday from the reformatory at llutchinson, where they were minimum security prisoners assigned to a wo-rk detail at the dairy barn. They apparently stole a 1962 car from a filling station across thp road from the dairy barn and made a bee-line for the home of Haiinewald's parents a mile south of Adrian. Mr. and Mrs Otto Hannewald were not harmed. YOU have a friend at The Fidelity You'll "Pamper" Your New Car After You Buy It •i PAMPER" YOUR POCKETBOOK When YOU FINANCE IT! Be A "Cash" Buyer-Get A Better Deal Arrange YOUR LOAN in Advance! The Fidelity State Bank beets into sugar 50 autumns (at rare intervals running into January). It was the town's biggest thrill when the shiny 4-story brick "factory", as it was always called, steamed up in October, 1906, and started a half century of refining. In 1955-56 the town was fully expecting a 51st "campaign" for October • November - December when the news of shut-down blasted hopes and threw men out of work as a disaster second only to that of 1945 when the basic training school of the Army suspended work. Most surprising fact in all the considerations about our loss of our one big industry is that about the same acreage is used for beets near here now without a refinery that was planted to the big white beets most of those years from 1906 through 1955. The counties in which they grow are still about the Game. But now they are loaded by the contracting refinery at dumps near the fields and shipped some 200 miles. Yields per acre in most years since we lost the mill have averaged higher than before. It was Holly Sugar Corp., a,n old Colorado firm with mills all the way to California, that bought out The Garden City Company's factory and much other property in time to take the beets out of the state. It hauled them to Swink, between LaJ u n t a and Pueblo. Then it sold to American Crystal Sugar Co. It takes the beets — hundreds of carloads a fall — to Rocky Ford, one of the oldest refineries in the mountain area. It closed down the Swink plant, so when you drive through the valley you see skeleton refineries at Garden City. Holly, Lamar, Las Animas and Swink. Beets are grown on many farms of The Garden City Co., which held its fine land when selling the plant. Also, many independent farmers are growing beets under direct contracts with A nerican Crystal. Finney County (notably from Holcomb for 10 miles north and west) still has the state's largest b&et acreage and yields. But some of the richest fields are near Ulysses, the new vegetable empire. In a very fow days harvest will be on in the whole area. Even if Kansas is allowed to put beets into 15,000 instead of some 6,000 acres next year it may be a long time before anybody win be willing to spend money building a new sugar processing mill anywhere in Kan- t! sas. It would be welcome news but let's not build much hope on 'Growing with Garden City"
