FRIDAY, A'PJW, 26, 19-16 BLYTHEVILLR (AKK.)

(Ul'l—A J'0im<; MoutemiiU. staking his life on the !>nv of proljiiblliiy, casually IJPi;:m pumping water .toduy Iroin iUiniml the live l.OOO-pmiiul bomb tic-king at tile bottom of 11 M-fooc pit in Siiint Jimics' Park—less Oiaii 300 yards from Buckingham patace. The bumb. which has been nicknamed "Annie." began ticking two <lay.s -ago when bomb disposal squads started to remove it froiii a drained duck pond where it luul hiin for live years. Apparently the most uiiconcern- i-d man at the scene, i,t. D. I!. Mel- li>r, clambered into tlu- pit lo al- lix the pumping apparttis, while a liaiulful of bomb disposal experts and newspapermen scattered to n .suit- distiince. Unless "Annie" blows up by 7 p.m. (1 p.m. EST), Lt. Mellor will place a dynamite charge at its base and explode it electrically. I)y the brief, bloody tradition ol the bomb disposal squad—almost all of whose original members died in solving German bomb fuses—this i.s Lt. Mellor's bomb, and all risks entailed in its disposal are jealously his. The British War Office has ordered the bomb disposed of by 7 p.m. because until ii is cleared, the important Mull and Birdcngc pedestrian traffic arteries must bo sealed off, along with Saint James 1 Park. "We take bombs in turn," said Maj. A. E. Smith, commander of the bomb disposal squad who uuijiht the technique to American engineers during the war.

This represented 51 per cent of total dcptsits. said l.emsetv, luul he. lidded hat this is the first time Hint the liRtne has shown more than ndf the total In Bovernment bonds, thin out excess plants gradually, and allnw the best plants lo using Uiscards for table wlicm iiossiblc. Wlien more plants conic up than there is room tu mature, the excess plants must be eliminated; mid tins is a tusk which must amateurs dislike, and iiuiiiy neglect. It should be regarded as nn opportunity, since it permits the finest plants chosen to survive, and inferior ones to be eliminated. Fur best results, thinning should be done gradually. In the case of a crop whlchj arows best when the plants stand six inches apart, do not at first Iliin it 1° "»e plant each six inches. There are two reasons for ibis. First, many vegetables, such as carrots and beets, are most df.-li eious when half-mature. By thin ning at first only enough lo insure that each plant stands well nloi tiie row and then allov.dng them !• yrow awhile, inatiy will soou read the stage when they c;.:i,b<- vested for the table. Second, il is foolish lo discard all xccss nl.m!s prematurely NviiC'il ceidcnts. insects or disease may cstroy many v.iiich are left. If binning i>; tjoiie by stupes as the >!anls grow, tiiey will finally stand ti the optimum distance from each . r.<! there will be small chance of vacant : : p'ices in tile row. Lettuce plants, thinned to stand \ inch apart, will soon reach a ze when alternate plants can be removed lo muke- a salad; imd this iroccss'niay be continued tmtil the spacing is right for the remaining plants to mature. Carrots may be thinned the first time \vln;:i they are as thick ns a pencil: and a dish of the thinnings wirl i',ive those v.iio have never eaten .sucii ti:iy carrots before, a tR-\-.' icii-a t'f this vegetable.

If thinned uvit at this sta^e, the thili- ;ilioulil l)e cooked roots and tops together, for a delicious dish. "No officer xotdd pcnni' any risks lo be taken from him." Maj. Smith said. "I am his superior officer, but this is Lt. Mellor's bomb, and he will see tlmt it i.s dispose,! of satisfactorily." Lt. Mellor pointed out that delayed action fuses usually have a Uii-hour time limit, and that thisoni: .still hns 55 hours during which k might detonate. It had been .ticking 41 hours nt noon. British time. "I'll only be pumping a couple of hours or so," he said.
