'BUY BETTER IN AMEB "OLD MAN RIVER" IS HIT BY REFORM Wandering Ways of Mississippi Ended ty US.Project •y WILLIS THORNTON NEA Strvlc* Staff Corespondent WINONA. Minn.—The whole of Upper Mississippi is being rebuilt by man. So extensive is this shave and hair-cut that is being given Old Man River that President Roosevelt will see only a part of the Widespread project. Instead of the single huge dam which is the nucleus of most of the great river developments, thb Upper Mississippi work includes 27 smaller dams'between Minneapolis and St. JUmis, each passed by boats by mean* of locks. The president will see three ot them in the course of his 47-mile river trip fronr Lake City to Winona Each will create a large lake . in place of a swift-flowing river, and will spread over thousands of acres of the wooded bottomlands of "Little Switzerland." This section is so called because of its scenic beauty. The river is borederd by towering wooded bluffs of strange formation. A recent allotment of $18,000,000 has been made,.most of it for this work on the Upper Mississippi, in addition to the $33.000,OOC . already allotted. This has furnished work for 8,500 workmen on all 18 projects, with a still larger aumbei given indirect employment. ? The entire scheme is to cost ,1124,000,000. It was adopted by • congress in 1930 and it was then lexpected that it would take 10 or Aid for Wounded Heimwehr Man N ORMA TALMADGE says too busy being married to stay in films.

The photograph was telephotoed from Vienna to London and then sent jy Bartlane transmission over Western Union cables to New York. BIG VALU1 in cereals! Kellogg's Corn Flakes with cool milk or cream! Delicious these hot days. And the season's biggest value. FOR COOLNESS READ THE WANTS Typical of the upper Mississippi dams which the president will sec on his way back to Washington is this project at Whitman, Minn. The completed locks thru which the presidential party will pass are in the foreground, while in the center is shown the dam under construction, marching across the river from the Wisconsin side. <• Perhaps for the first time, the presidential flag will fly over the i Mississippi when it adorns the stnff of the North Star, a yacht of' Dr. W. J. Mayo, host to the president on his tour of upper Mississippi river control projects. 15 years to complete. Work moved tlowly. But iast summer President Roosevelt' ordered the work made part *f the -nationwide re- employinent plan of the Public Works Administration. Money was allotted from the PWA, and novr the whole thing should be completed '. by. 1936, giving a nine-foot channel trpm the Twin Cities to the gulf. - . Four complete sets of locks and dams have .already been finished un this section Sixteen are under construction, and seven are in the planning stage They will run along the river's course all the way'to St. Louis, rfith a large dam at Alton, just above that city, where Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer's river caves can still be seen. Employment of more than 8000 men. during the winter is a great The president, who is a fisherman and sportsman, is expected to take freen interest in the Upper Mississippi river wild life and fish refuge, which covers most of the territory hereabouts. This is a gigantic federal conservation project started in 1927. It contains more than 150,000 acres of river bottomlands, extending 300 miles from Vv'abasha. Minn, to Rock Island, 111. This whole section is a res'Jing and nesting flyaway for hordes of waterfowl every spring and autumn. Rich In History The section is also rich in Indian lore and early American history. The sites of two French forts established nearly 300 years ago ' will be pointed out to the party. Communitks along the rSver boon .'c this section, helping a i hard-beset state to bear the bur- I den of unemployment. . j Workmen Plan Welcome ! At the two dams at Alma, Wis.. | and Whitman, Minn., and the lock j near Winona which the president will inspect, nearly 2000 men are at work. They are planning a hearty greeting to the man whose forward look toward water development made their jobs possible, banks, dating back to the days | when they were little fur-trading j posts in the wilderness, reflect the j historical background of a region that has lived under three flags. French and Indian names abound, and in themselves tell a story. Not all the Upper Mississippi dams are like the usual idea of a S~ dam. Some of them are merely brush-and-stone walls jutting out into the current from either bank. Their purpose is to ketp the current of the spreading, shallow river in the center of the channel. That tends, of course to make it deeper and swifter, scouring out its own channel in the narrow center. There are literally thousands of such "dams" in the upper reaches of the Mississippi, all of which past work will lend aid to the present project. Battle Fought For Years This development is the latest move in a battle with Old Man River that has been going on for 70 years and more. How old the battle is may be seen by the fact that Robert E. Lee was assigned by the War Department to flood control work on the Mississipp 1 back before the Civil war. Winona has loLg been regarded as head of low-water navigation, as above this point to the Twin Cities low-water level has been known to fall to three feet r too shallow for regular barge navigation. In future, a regular channel of known depth slioild be available at any season. School Had Cash Balance HOUSTON. Tex. O!> — The Houston independent school district had $502,417 in cash on hand at the beginning of July, it was announced.

Johnson and William J. Baldwin, of the Parmelee farm here, raised a "record" wheat yield of 112 bushels from one and one- half acres. Agriculture department officials wrote that the figure was far above this year's average. Rabbit Bone Punctured Tire BOISE. Idaho O>—Idaho's rabbits are tough and can die gloriously. J. W. Corcoran ran over one. A piece of bone pierced a tire ami left him stranded, without a spare, jack, or patching materials. 10 miles from home on a lonely road. 275 Children in Bible School ST.
