No doubt you read in last night's paper that Peter Grant will be in Columbus this Saturday afternoon. The voice of this popular WLW news commentator is probably as well known to all of us as that of a member of our own family and, needless to 'say, each man, woman and child of us is bustin' to see him In person! We want to know what he looks like. Friends in Shelbyville told me that an organization there had sponsored Mr. Grant's "What's in the News," and that it was a huge success in the exact words "We were all crazy about him!" This first-of-the-season Associated Literary clubs affair will be held, at 2:30 o'clock this Saturday afternoon at the high school auditorium so buy your ticket and see, as well as hear, Peter Grant substitute "Good . afternoon!", for his familiar "Good evening!" Writing the word "Shelbyville" reminds me Of the elm blight there and a telephone call after I mentioned it in this column. The man who called offered a suggestion which, he said, may not - be the answer to the blight, but which certainly could do no harm, and on which his trees had thrived. guests were ' marked by corsages of rose buds.

He believes that the headway the blight has made on the elms is due to the lowered water-level, elm roots not going very deep in the ground hence lowered resistance through drouth. Of course, there Is no denying the fact of a definite blight, but, if you'll notice, while a few small trees have died, it is the large ones that are dying by the scores. Maybe, if we keep our elms well i nourished and deeply watered they will be able to survive, even An acquaintance of ours, who spent his boyhood on a farm and loved it, has built a new home jtvstj outside a large town. Hoping tol give his boys at least some pseudo-I farming, he bought them a cow, a! little Guernsey, and they prompt-! ly made a pet of it. It follows j them around the grounds just like a dog, and at milking-time, the two little fellows, one on either side, do a good job at filling the bucket.

Similar pro-1ects have been shelved in the past due to the opposition of railroad interests. Advocates of an Inter-oceanic highway assert linking of the At lantic port of Limon with Punta 'Arenas on the Pacific coast would facilitate transport problems. They also point cut that the highway would benefit the Limon and Punta Arenas zones, which have suffered economically as a result of shipping activities being diverted to other ports. I Completion of the highway would require construction of a 60-' mile stretch of road on -the I Atlantic side, and 25 miles on the Pacific side. rr f 1 1 . . I---" i.i. i .1 ...)
