' For some time there was in evidence a movement to pass over the claims of the German by matching Braddock and Louis. This, while a natural in the eyes of American promoters, would not have been fair play. When Schmeling and Louis clashed, it was agreed that the winner would have the first chance at Braddock's title and we are glad that the effort to eliminate Schmeling did not succeed. Aa far as we are concerned, it makes little difference whether Braddock, Schmeling or Louis holds the championship but it would have been bad taste, to say the least, to ignore Schmeling' s rights. for "The Garden of Allah". . . .

"You know, I'm actually doing what I've wanted to do all my life I" he told her, over and over. But what pleased her most was the joy he took in their house. She loved the way he brought people home to dinner, the last moment. It never bothered her that there was nothing but beans, or scrambled eggs. It never worried her that she was wearing an old smock and that she'd forgotten to comb her curls. Aunt Nettie would have been truly horrified If she could have seen them, and their sketchy, hospitable menage. She chose not to see them. Few of the friends of the family did. The young people whom Donald brought home for dinner, or who dropped in informally in the evenings, were for the most part students, or men who were interested in Donald's work. It wasn't until her mother-in-law's first visit, which was, incidental, her last, that Christie really learned that life in the little house on the hill wasn't just the sort that the world would expect of a young man of Donald Latham's nosition.

Its sn rial graces may advance its position The rising prices of wheat is welcomed by wheat growers. While an advance means more money for the wheat on hand today, it may cause the production of an excessive crop in 1937 wilh consequent price collapse which will tiike a heavy toll from 'all growers. The Clintonian realizes that much has been accomplished for the farmers during the past four years and that much more will have to be accomplished before the cajh income of farmers attains the level of 1928. While prices have shown great improvement over the depression years, they have been sustained, in part, by reduced production. The farmers' goal will not be reached until a fair price is obtained for normal production. While this is desirable, it will not be accomplished by violent fluctuation of production and prices but rather by the slow improvement of international markets for agricultural products. While the gain in wheat prices has been spectacular, a rise has been seen in cotton, cotton seed oil, other foodstuffs, wool, leather and hides.' With these crop prices going up, farmers will probably be enticed into planting submarginal lands which the nation has been painfully taking out of cultivation. There is also apt to develop something of a speculation in land values, with increasing and growing mortgages, which will mean heavy losses when the price level recedes. It should be observed that recent gains are attributed by many experts to purchases made by Europe in anticipation of a probable war. 'n the public eye.

"She won't stay long. She's not much on roughing it," he said.

Now that we're going to be friends you must, you simply must help me save Donny, before it is too late!" To save Donald before it was too late! Christie's eyes dilated. She had a moment of something like terror. And then in a flash she knew. It was this new idea the laboratory. His mother wanted to save him from that Make him give it up, and do the kind of work he used to do. In a way it was what she wanted, too.

"And quite right," Eve Latham said. "She has a lot of Bense, for a bride. I may approve of your marriage after all." Donald chuckled.
