Many materials have been reduced to temperatures only a few degrees, or even a Small fraction of a.degree, above absolute zero. In this condition the substances do strange things.

Mexican Squatters Seize Farm Land ENSENADA, Mexico (AP) '— Mexican squatters have seized a big chunk of rich farm land owned »y a colopy of White Russians. There was no violence when the squatters swooped in Friday, but detachment of Mexican soldiers moved in to patrol the scene — the Guadalupe Valley, about 50 miles south of the .California border. Witnesses said the squatters— about 3,000 — were well organized. About 4,500 acres was seized. Authorities were inclined to view :he seizure as another incident in the Mexican agrarian movement, a term given to the efforts of landless pleasants to seize land they say is held by absentee landowners. About 95 White Russians — called Mokokans — live in the valley, which they originally set tied in 1904. They came from Kars, now a part of Turkey, on invitation from the Mexican government. the harvest was Hearing completion. Much of the grain Is being stored in the face of low prices but farmers were cheered by .an upward trend in the market at week's end. Rainy weather since July 4th has delayed harvesting in most areas. Buyers said continued rain will result in damage to grain in the field. The harvest, ts more than half complete in Fayette County and at the same stage in Wabash County, one of the biggest producers along with Madison and St. Clair counties, has been set at one million bushels. Wilbur Smith. Washington County farm adviser, said large amounts of wheat are being stored —either on the farm or in commercial storage for government loans. The loan figure, of $1.92 a bushel in Washington County is 25 cents above the cash market. Smith said yields have averaged 22 bushels an acre in his county with the .highest reported in the low 40s.

C. iP - A prison pardon appears to be the best bet for getting Charles P. Rocky Rothschild, former Cairo, HI., po- iceman, to Georgia to stand trial tor a murder he admitted. Rothschild, serving five years in the South Carolina Penitentiary for a burglary conspiracy, said he is willing to go to Georgia. But legal difficulties stand in the way of ex- radition. South Carolina Atty. Gen. T.-C. Callison discussed the situation Friday with Solicitor General Alfred Quillan of Georgia's Piedmont Circuit and Sheriff John B. Brooks of Jackson County, Ga.
