I) PAGE EIGHT DAILY TIMES AND DAILY JOURNAL-PRESS, ST. CLOUD, MINN. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 1937 SEWER PROJECT STARTS TODAY 55 Men Employed on Extensions to Continue All Winter. Work started today with 55 men employed on ' two units of a new sanitary sewer project to St. Cloud which will continue all winter, according to Harry Phinney, district WPA director. The two units undertaken at present are continuations of the old lines In various parts of the city. One of the, units is located at Lake George on Ninth avenue south and Second street. The other is at 11 avenue north and 12 V4 street. As soon as these are finished the men will start on other units until some six or eight jobs are completed in the city, all part of an extensive system of sewer extensions this winter. Also starting work today was a small crew of men on constructing stone steps from the pavilion in the tourist park to the board walk at the foot of the hill leading to the islands of the State Teachers college. At present a set of board steps have been used further north in the park but these will be replaced by new steps of granite. This project is just a continuation of several park jobs carried out in the past by the Works Progress Administration.

CROW RIVER TO BE DISCUSSED Public Hearing on Flood Control Slated at AnOka. A hearing on flood control of the Crow river, which rises in Stearns county, goes through Meeker and Wright counties and empties into the Mississippi near Anoka, will be held in the city hall at Anoka at 1:30 p. m., November 19, according to information received here by Postmaster John Henry. The Crow was an important river in pioneer days in operating many small flour mills. In recent years the summer residents of Lake Minnetonka have tried to put over a project to have the river diverted from its present course and switched ito Lake Minnetonka, not only to raise the level of that body of water, but also to keep a continuous flow over Minnehaha falls. Whether or not the hearing at Anoka is in regard to diverting the river into the lake is not known. It would be an expensive project, paid for the Minnetonka property owners, but many of the farmers residing along the river course do not wish to have the water taken away from them.

Nanking, (UP) The great surge of national feeling brought about by the Japanese invasion of China has swept aside all former differences among the country's civil and mili tary leaders. It has brought back to Nanking many political exiles who a few months ago were all but outlaws in the eyes of the government. Among these are the former commanders of the 19th Route army, which gain ed worldwide fame and admiration during Its long-drawn defense of Shanghai in 1932. The first to return was Gen. Tsai Ting-kai, field commander of the army and the outstanding hero of the 1932 war. As soon as he came he dropped his well-cut Western suits and the civilian manner he had acquired abroad, donned uniform and left for the front. Garrison Head Also Back. Now he has been followed by Gen. Chen Ming-shu who, as garrison commander of Shanghai and Nanking, was his superior officer in 1932. General Chen is more remarkable as a political than as a military figure. An old Kuomintang revolutionary and former governor of Kwantung, he was the founder of the "Chinese ( Social-Democratic Party" and for a long time a source of irritation to the government. In 1933 he led the 19th Route army in a rebellion in the course of which a "people's government" was proclaimed in Foochow with himself as chairman. This government de manded war against Japan and reconciliation with the Red army. Al though the rebellion was quickly crushed, its slogans continued to reverberate and were voiced again by the Canton-Kwangsi rebels of 1935 and the leaders of the Sian revolt last December. Today, when they have become the policy of the government, General Chen and other exiles are returning to Nanking not as pardoned rebels but as recognized patriots. Hsu Chien Welcomed. With General Chen came the for mer commander-in-chief of the 19th Route army, Gen. Chiang Kwang-nai, and Gen, Oung Chaoyuan, bespectacled English-speaking director of the heroic defense of the Woosung forts during the first Shanghai conflict. Another, non-military member of the group is George Hsu Chien, a fiery old radical who, as a leading figure in General Chen's Social-Democratic party, was one of the moving spirits of the Foochow "people's government." Thus the 19th Route army has returned, in the person of its leaders, to the national capital. But it has returned only in an abstract sense, because the army itself long since has been disbanded and even its name was abolished when the prestige it carried was lvirnessed to anti-government aims. The heroes of Shanghai were broken on the wheel of internal struggle when the government sought to escape the catastrophic solution which it maintained was inevitable and which has sines proved to be so. DAKOTA TRIBUTE TO PATHFINDER Pembina State Park Cairn Stands as Shrine to Joseph Rolette. Pembina, S. D. (UP) Atop a tree-covered hill in Pembina state park stands a cairn as a shrine to the valorous deeds of frontiersman Joseph (Jolly Joe) Rolette, pioneer transportation king of the Red River Valley. The monument, dedicated recently, commemorates the one-time Pembina postmaster who died in 1871 as a frontier leader and pathfinder. Born in Prairie du Chien to wealthy French parents, Jolly Joe forsook an education in exclusive New York schools for a rugged life in the wilds of North Dakota. Adventurous As Boy As history records it, father Rolette decided his son was too adventurous for the quiet life in Eastern schools when young Joe took to parading up Broadway in buckskins and carrying a Daniel Boone rifle. The elder Rolette got Joe a job with a large fur company and before Joe was out of his 'teens he was sent there to lake charge of the concern's post. He remained here until his death 66 years ago. Was Transportation King Rollette was credited with Inventing the so-called Red River cart in 1842 and a year later there were 5,000 of the vehicles making the long trek between St. Paul and Fort Garry. For years following he ruled as transportation king of the region. Finding the transportation busi ness too commonplace for his ad venturous spirit, Rolette embarked into politics and was elected to the Minnesota territorial house in 1853. Later he became postmaster here and also served as customs collector. Exports of food products from the United States during the first nine months of this year were valued at $173,189,000, an increase of 15 per cent over the exports in the corresponding period of 1936. Latin-American does about one-'rhird of its total trade with the United States. IL DUCE SEES THE TRAGIC SIDE of war and sympathy show; in the face of the Italian premier as he interviews the widow of a "volunteer" slain in the Spanish war.

(UP) There are collections and collections of old relics, Indian arrowheads and frontier weapons, but few can compare with the mass of material that W. J. Layland, Cleburne plumber, has amassed. Layland operates a plumbing busi ness In Cleburne, but his business seldom interferes with his hobby of collecting relics, and today it is dfificult to separate the relics in his shop from the plumbing fix turesa modernistic bathtub may be found filled with Indian beads, arrowheads and a mass of head dresses. Layland' has been collecting his material for nearly 50 years, using the mountains and plains of West KINGMAN REEF TO GET COLONY Uninhabited Coral Atoll to Be Station for Sailing Vessel. Seattle (UP) The battered old sailing vessel, Margaret F. sterling, long destined to a watery grave, is being reflnished and will serve as a station ship for Pan-American Air ways, at Kingman Reef, 1,000 miles southwest of Honolulu. Giant clipper ships, winging their way between San Francisco and New Zealand, will use the windjammer as a supply base. Diesel engines, propelling twin screws, are to be installed aboard the schooner as auxiliary power, but she will proudly billow her sails to the winds in the voyage to the reef, an uninhabited coral atoll, about 7 miles long and 5 miles wide. The ship will be equipped with a short-wave wireless set, radio beam apparatus and powerful electric searchlights to direct flights of the big clipper ships. And the name, Margaret F. Ster ling, which she has borne since being shot down the greased ways in Victoria, B. C, in 1919, will give way to Four Winds. Just before a new Douglas fir mast, 108 feet long, was lifted over the side to the vessel's deck to be fitted, her master, Capt. Halvor Mik-kelsen, placed a new 10-cent piece in the heel of the big stick. "That'll keep away the jinx," he said. The clippers will hop from San Francisco to Honolulu, 2,410 miles; from Honolulu to Kingman Reef, 1,100 miles; from Kingman Reef to Tutuila Island of the Samoan group, 1,600 miles, and from Tutuila to Auckland, N. Z., 1,800 miles. Rattlesnake Errs by Choosing Wrong Forestry Lookout Hot Springs, Ark. (UP) Friendliness of a rattlesnake at a Ouachita National Forest lookout near here resulted in its death. The .snake,, named "Old Spot" by the forestry lookouts, had loitered near the tower atop Oak mountain for two years, "chumming" with th observers. In the cool of the day the snake could be found at the foot of the tower, waiting for his human companions to come down and "play with him." Recently a new helper who was not so familiar with the snake's ways was assigned to the tower. The helper was hanging up clothing one morning when "Old Spot" crawled up the hill. The reptile was playful, but the lookout thought the snake meant business. "Old Spot" got too close. Now he won't come back for any more games. "Old Spot" was one of three rattlere that were seen around in the vicinity of the lookout tower. A little later one of its mates was found dead. The third reptile, sensing a change in attitude, apparently found a new home. It hasn't been seen since in the vicinity of the tower. Forest rangers said that the tnakes were wild, but that thoy never had tried to bite anyone. Forest w orkers even had fed - insects tQ "Old Spot." and Southwest Texas as his happy hunting grounds. His summers are spent in searching for relics and he says that he has 12 packing box es "full of the stuff." Recently Layland offered to give the entire collection to the city of Fort Worth, if a fireproof building would be provided. After Fort Worth sent several authorities to inspect the collection, the city quickly re plied that such a structure would be provided. Experts said the collection is the best of its kind in America. The collection includes prehistor ic bones, defense weapons of all types, more than 100 firearms, ranging from ancient flintlocks to modern revolvers, and several saddles that belonged to such noted characters as Kit Carson and Buffalo Bill Cody. There are 3,000 arrowheads; Indian skulls with ar rowheads imbedded , in them, and various types of hatchets and knives in the small shop at Cleburne. The material will be moved here as soon as a fireproof building has been supplied. TOBACCO BELT GETS BIG CUT OF PROSPERITY Prices Up 6 to 15 Cents and North Carolina Has Bumper Crop. Raleigh, N. C. (UP) While the rest of Dixie is worrying over the doldrums of the cotton market, farmer.3 of the North Carolina tobacco belt are experiencing one of their best seasons in history. With prices averaging from 6 to 15 cents a pound higher than last year and a record crop in sight, Tar Heel growers expect to realize $130,000,000 or more from sale of the golden leaf. Less than half of the estimated crop of 600,000,000 pounds has been hauled to the auction floors, but already . farmers have received $58,297,303 in cash from the buyers of the big tobacco companies. Since it s the usual procedure to sell the low grade tobacco early in the season and save the choice leaf for the final months, tobacco experts predict that the yet unmarketed part of the crop will bring even higher prices. The marketing season continues through the winter until about Feb. 1. Grown on Small Farms North Carolina produces about three-fourths of American flue-cured tobacco. Most of it is grown on small farms, and it is all mar keted at open auction in upward of 50 North Carolina cities. The farmers haul wagon and truck loads of leaf to large warehouses, where it is stacked in long rows. Then the auctioneer and sets of buyers move down the rows, each pile being sold to the highest bidder. , Last year the average price paid for a pound of tobacco on North Carolina markets was slightly more than 22 cents. This season, the auctions opened at 25 cents a pound and have been steadily rising. Statisticians predict the average for the entire season will be nearly 35 cents a pcund. . Buying Market Boonu The steady flow of cash from the giapt tobacco companies Reynolds, American, Imperial and the others is the lifeblood of North Carolina commerce and business of all kinds. Tobacco farmers with hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars In their pockets for the first time in a year are ready spenders, and they quickly make all the purchases that have been delayed during the planting and harvesting seasons. New automobiles, washing machines, new clothes, furniture, farm implements, as well as many smaller necessities and luxuries, attract the flood of tobacco dollars. The resulting commercial awakening is felt by every business man and tradesman in the state. The unusually high prices this yrar, coupled with the bumper crop, have heightened the effect of Underground Missouri Lake Contains Furry Type Trout St. Louis (UP) A fur-bearing fish, caught in an underground lake on a Pulaski county, Mo., farm, may be a reversion to a possible ancient type of piscatorial life. But, professing to be more of a fisherman than a biologist, Frank F. Wielandy, former Missouri state game and fish commissioner, prefers to let science decide what manner of fish had chosen to strike his line. . The fish was taken out of what is called the trout pond on the acreage known as the Blue Bird Farm owned by the Wielandys and located near WaynesvHle, Mo. It was mounted and brought to St. Louis to be placed on exhibition. The fish resembles a trout in every respect except that it has a rich coat of fur completely covering its body in longitudinal stripes, brown and grayish-yellow, much on the odrer of a chipmunk. The stripes run from snout to tail. "I nominate it for a yeading place In the book," Wielandy said, "for I doubt if there will be ever another freak just like this. ' In life it would weigh about two pounds. It has the head, jaws and snout of a trout. I frankly admit I can't explain It." Wielandy suggested that inbreed- the seasonal boom in the state. Vast Manufacturing Business Located in the state also are the largest cigarette and tobacco man ufacturing plants in the world, and they contribute to the fall up swing of business by employing large numbers of men and women. North Carolina tobacco factories this year will manufacture more than $500,000,000 worth of cigarettes alone, in addition to smoking tobacco, snuff and chewing tobac co. State and Federal governments take their share of the flood of tobacco money. In addition to its direct tobacco taxes, the state government received revenue from a 3 per cent general sales tax, which is greatly increased by the stimulated retail business of the marketing season. The Federal government collects more than $300,000,000 annually in the state, most of which is the excise tax on cigarettes.
