WEDNESDAY; JUNE M, 1939 Small Town Guy Pals With Bluebloods At Cleveland Convention I!Y WILLIS THORNTON NKA Service Stan' Correspondent CLEVELAND, June 11—When 12,000 men from 50 countries of all the world can meet with no more complicated purpose than to be mutually helpful and friendly (o cue another, and Incidentally to have a whale of a good time there is slill hope for (hat world That is R picture of the annual convention of Kotary International Symbolic of the international' good-will and friendship which is l ! Rolary's aim, is a huge flag, covering n whole end of Cleveland's vast Public Hall, ami made up of a mosaic of the flags of the 80 countries which house the world's 5002 Rotary Clubs. Dr. Y. c. Yan s of siichoiv, China, will sit down at the dinner table with Daren Sometara Shcba nf Tokio, Japan, though j n or. Yang's homeland their countrymen are killing each other. H. s. £1 J'rmee Varnvaidyakara. president of (he Uankok, Siam, Rotary club, will meet, Prince C. Basarab Bran- coieanu of Rumania, and both will shake hands with Joe Spelvin, the Gopher Prairie druggist GERMANY', ITALY ABSENT About MOO,of the'delegates come from outside the United States members of the 1383 Rotary Clubs abroad. No one watching the arrival ot delegates from every eountr> of South and Central America from England. Ireland, Scotland and Wales, frcm India, Bulgaria ) Lebanon. Egypt and the Netherlands, from S:uth Rhodesia. Norway, Finland and (he Fiji Islands, can doubt (he liilcroaUoiinllsm o the club which started in Chicago nnd drew CO delegates to its first convemicii there In 1910. The only colors c:nspicuously lacking in this international spectrum will be those.of Germany and Italy. Kotary clubs in those countries have disbanded, solemnly informing tlic parent group that parly organi/.-ilions In their countries so completely filled their needs that there was no longer any place for an international organization cf any kind. Rotarians. who suspect an "or else" decision there, will probably not pass resolutions condemning Germany, and Italy. They are more .likely to', ( spnd a simple message 'bl sympathy arid' friendship' to their erstwhile comrades there —this has been the Rotary way, at . least, in Hie past. With Die 12,000 Rotarians are 5000 of their wives, the robes of the Chinese and Indian women a luxurious nste among ordinary western dress of most of (.he visitors. But most of the foreign delegates make a point of "dressing American"—except for that, Sir ShaiBcrjce Billimoria of Bombay, India, would look a good deal like his famous countryman, Mahatma Gandhi. By the same token, Norman A. McLarty, Postmaster-General of Canada, one of the speakers, bears a strong resemblance to liis American prototype, Jim Farley. Stressing the international tone of the gathering, and the growing strength of Rotary throughout the Americas, another principal speaker will be Ben M. Chcrrington. head of the Department of State's new Division of Cultural Relations FOUNIiElt TO UK PRESENT Present also wilt be Paul P. Harris cf Chjcago, the man who conceived the whole Rotary idea back in 1905. who lias personally supervised Rolary's growth from a small group which met in each other's offices in turn (hence, "Rotary") to today's world-wide membership of 205,000. Harris, the founder and no;v president emeritus, is 71, but still extremely active in Rotary's affairs. Tlic sessions, which open Sunday, June 18. nnd close PYiday, June 23, «il| be led by President, George C. Hagcr of Chicago.

The bitterwecd is one of the wcrst pests in pastures, lint it can be almost eliminated in three years if the pasture is mowed at the right lime and in the right manner. .. According lo Charles P. Simmons, extension acronomist, University -f Arkansas College of Agriculture, mowing should be done just. beior<= the blossom opens, with'the cutter bar cf tlie machine high enough (o cul the plant.just beneath the bud. Another crop of buds will appear at the top ot the stem, and these should be cut in the same manner. Each succeeding crop ot b'utls should be cut before they cpen; and after two or three years of moving in this manner the pasture shculd be free of bitter- weeds. Many farmers make the mistake of cutting bitterwecds atu^r the blossoms open, or of culling as close to the grctmd as possible.. If cut after the blossoms cpcn, Itic plant will rcsced itself. K cut loo short, the plant , flower so close to the ground that It ciiniiit be cut with a mottuig machine. Mewing will help the pasture by ' removing weeds lhat compete with desirable pasture plants lor 'sunlight, moisture, and plant food. Ihc county agent said. As high as $50 each is paid for frogs for breeding purposes. WANTED TO Bli¥ SURPLUS COTTON SEED & SOYBEANS Full Market Prices Briny to Our Hlylhcville or Gosncll Gin O.
