Dr. Reinking Returns, Lauds Good Neighbor Policy Geneva Uncle Sam's Good Neighbor policy has paid dividends in Central America, according to Dr. O. A. Reinking, head of the Plant Pathology Department at New York State Agricultural Experiment Station. Dr. Reinking returned a few days ago from a special mission to Central America and is convinced that the Central American republics are backing the United States and the United Nations to ! the limit of their resources. By his trip he became the most air- mirvded of the Geneva scientists and acquired considerable "air time" by using planes as casually as axis. The Geneva' scientist spent 10 years in the Central American republics before coming to the sta tion. He was selected by the State Department to make a survey of these countries to determine the basic requirements of copper, a critical material, necessary for use there in spray mixtures to combat banana leaf spot disease. Leaving Washington last Nov. 17, as a representative of the Board of Economics Warfare, Dr. Reinking was in every nook and corner of Central America. He crossed from north to south three times and made the east-west crossing so many times he lost track. Use of commercial planes In Central America by business and government leaders is now the most important method of travel and by plane he found it possible to have breakfast, lunch and din ner in widely separated places. J'rngrcsn in Guatemala Noting the changes since he was last in Central America, Dr. Reinking warmly complimented Guate mala. He termed Guatemala 1 Sift PI 1 J IjV "J? & ",! i I., ,r8a mm -EMf very remarKaoie country. it is one of the most progressive in Central America," he said, "and its economic condition is good. Living there is excellent. It has wonderful motor roads and the entire coun try is so spic and span that it practically shines. All or this is due to President Obico. He makes regular inspections of every province and every community and woe betide the official who has not lived up to his duty. They even sweep leaves and twigs off the roads to keep them clean. "President Obico is very much interested in roads, and his work to keep up the economy of his country is showing splendid results, Guatemala City, the capital, is the cleanest city in the world, I be lieve, and the whole country tourists. It 1 Woman Arrested In Baby's Death Penn Van Mrs. Foye Newland, 23. was arrested Saturday in her apartment at 149 Seneca St., Penn Yan, by Corp. Harold Scott, Canan-daigua.

Pelton the woman made a statement admitting that she vas the mother of the newborn female whose newspaper-wrapped frozen body was found Thursday morning. Feb. A, a few feet from the Penn Yan-Branchport Highway by a County Home employe at Esperanza. Mendon GOP Club ideal for American beautiful." Dr. Reinking also visited Hon duras. El Salvador, Costa Rica and the Republic of Panama. Hon duras, he said, is feeling the war and the lack of water transporta tion for its export a bit more, but he pointed out, it is not quite so rich a country as Guatemala. In Costa Rica prices are up a bit. Th lack of tonnage for movement north of the banana crops Is felt to a considerable extent. The na tives, without as much cash, as formerly, are boiling the green bananas and eating them much a we do potatoes. A very small amount of bananas is coming north as compared .with peace times but efforts are being made to provide more tonnage. in the Dcliel or the Geneva sci entist, construction of the Pan American Highway is aiding great ly in maintaining the economy of the Central American nations From the Mexican border, throug Guatemala and El Salvador. .it is fairlv ulp11 rnmnlptpf! hv thp rmin. . .. -r- -j r I ilHOQ I ClTYl tY Y fK7 wies tnemseives, but there are Honeoye Falls Mendon Women's Republican Club will hold a tureen dinner at Bi.lO p. m. tomorrow in the lVcion House.

American road builders nre now at work and steps arc be ing taken to correct a shortage of heavy equipment. rrcsident Itidrs Motorcycle-President Obica is a motorcycle fan and Dr. Reinking described how he rides over his country on road inspection tours. Gasoline is selling for 50 cents or more a gallon and is scarce but tires are the big problem. One is never far from the sound of America warplanes on constant patrol throughout Central America, he said, and the situation in regard to Axis nationals in the republics is well in hand with most of those considered either doubtful or dangerous in American custody. The expert determined that there is no substitute for the copper sulphate used with lime and water to make the Bordeaux spray mixture for control of the banana leaf spot disease. He was also called into consultation on a disease of the abaca plant from which hemp j is made; another disease of the roselle, a fibre plant, and the culture and diseases of quinine. It was Dr. Reinking who helped bring the abaca plant into Panama In 1925 from the Philippines. The expert said millions of tons of bananas have been cut and left to rot due to lack of transportation, and also to keep the leaf epot disease from spreading. He has reported the results of his mission to Washington and is now trying to catch up on regular work at the station. According to fellow scientists here, the officials of the Central American countries were reluctant to permit his return to Geneva because of his knowledge of their plant pathology problems, and would like to have had him remain longer for consultation purposes.
