Its post-war shipment has boon resumed, although American scientists say the root, which wows from Maine to Georgia, has no therapeutic value. U. S. railroad freight traffic increased more than 412 percent from the low point of tho depression in 1U32' to the high point of the war in 1944; passenger traffic increased more than 706 percent in the samo period.

The old days of shovel mixing arc gone. To operate a modern concrete mixer it would be a good idea to learn how to play 1 a pipe organ. That's how complicated the control panel is. \ They are building a $22,000,000 dam and powerhouse across the Grand (or Nfiosho) River 12 miles Northeast of hore near tho site of old Port Gibson, an historic ouC- posl, In pioneer days. The dam will take 1'our years to build, Any housewife would get a kick out of inspecting the new gadget they've got to mix the 461,300 cubic yards of concrete needed to construct the dam, which will be 110 feet high and 2,850 feet long. Rube Goldberg' Model It is electrically operated. It looks pretty much like a Rube Goldberg model of a cocktail shaker on a giant scale. It's a 70-foot high contraption costing about $225,000. The materials used in' making the concrete--sand, gravel and cobblestones of different sizes -are stored in eight bins down the road a bit which hold 400 tons. Beneath the bins runs a six-hundred foot tunnel. A conveyor belt goes from the tunnel to the top of the mixer. By pressing a button an electrical signal flashes to a man in the tunnel just what type of material Is needed and it is dropped pnto a moving rubber-covered con- Veyor belt. It travels- up to the top of the automatic mixer 'and is dumped into the proper vat. Four Mixtures .By manipulating buttons on the control boar-d- the operator can funnel down different type concretes into the four rotating- concrete mixers below, each of which holds two cubic yards. "That's a four-ton highball in each mixer,' said' Oscar S. McCormick, Minneapolis contractor. Like any good highball, it's properly cooled--125 pounds of shaved ice goes into the making of each cubic yard of concrete. The cement is fed into the mix from a tall silo standing beside the chief structure. The control panel also has a moving roll of paper like a player piano on which sixteen pens record the amount of each ingredient, tine time, and the temperature. Each batch is timed more accurately than a three-minute egg. Records Show Colemans Filed An aftermath to the trial of M. H. and Ruth W. Goldman, convicted In federal district court here last Satuday of using the mails to defraud, cropped up in the county clerk's office yesterday afternoon with the filing of a deed of trust by the Oolemans in favor of Jack K. Ayer, trustee for James V. Allred, chief counsel for the convicted pair during the trial, which lasted about two weeks. According to the deed, the Cole- mans put up property, described as "all of South half of Block 24 arid all of Block 25, containing 00 acres in the C. P. Barreda subdivision, in the Ojo de Agua grant" an collateral for a ' $4,500 note, which was dated May 16, 1047 and is due on Sept, 5. 1947, with, interest at six per cent. A notation p,s on the deed Instructed the county clerk to mail the papers to "James V. Allred, attorney, Electric Building, Houston." The Colemans were convicted on nine counts of using the mails to defraud in connection with the operations of their little orphanage at Santa Rosa. The indictment against the pair alleged that they used the malls frauduently, in a campaign, which was almost nationwide In scope, to acquire funds to operate the orphanage. Judge Allan B, Hannay, who presided over the trial, has set Friday of this week as the day for sentencing the Oolemans, the maximum sentence being five years on each count. They are on, original , bonds of $1,500 each. jttis expected that the Oolemans will file an appeal jusfc as soon as Judge Hannay enters the Judg- m«nt. .^- '·' Summer Weather Hits West Texas Section By The A«*ool«itocl Press The weather fudged on Summer (which officially doesn't begin until June 22) with 100 degree temperatures at Wink, and in the 90s elsewhere in Texas yesterday, Coolest spot today was Pampa with 61 degrees, More of the same is predicted for tomorrow--partly cloudy to fair weather in East Texas, fair in West Texas, with no change in temperature anywhere.
