Grass Sown on Lawn But Potato Vines Grow CLEVELAND, O. (UP) —Young scientists at the Case School of Applied Science and their professors thought it would be a cinch lo predict what would grow on the liuvn of llicir new' $300.000 lafoor- alory. Grass had been planted. But. (he grass, when It grew, was dotted thickly with new potatoes. The question now: Whether lo take out the grass and grow po- UUoes, or to pick the potato seedlings out of the top-soil. The spinning spools of the spider are openings to internal silt: glands, and Ihe thickness of Ihe thread depends on Ihe number or glands put into action.
