I doubt that Mann will last longer than eight rounds. Mann lost no time In getting his knock at the throne-room door. He has been boxing for only four years. He qualified for this one by taking a rather close and surprising decision from Bob Pastor, who obviously was,off after a protracted spell on the sidelines.

Crises Cause Check Aaross this foreign policy -Die Spanish and FJU- .Eastern conflicts fill great gashes. Tension over Spain and crises nbout the wllh- tlrawal of foreign volunteers prevented Great Britain and Italy sinking their differences. Disagreement on Spain also nctal as a check on moves for an Anglo-German - rapprochement. ...The ..'undeclared Sliio-Japaiieso war forestalled the Anglo-Japanese talks scheduled (o begin last August.. Tlie outstanding development in Britain's foreign ixjltcy during the year wns the increasing: desire for rapprochement with the United States. Superficially, Anglo-United Slates talks wero directed toward a trade pact between the two countries. In practice, however, the British government regarded the trade advantages as far transcended by the psychological rapprochement which it Ijopes will accrue from such an agreement. The outbreak of Uie Slno-Jap- anese conflict convinced the British government that a closer understanding with Uie Uniterf'States should form an essential part of the British foreign policy. Strong representations, it was understood, were made to the Dominions governments to modify their opposition to an Anglo-United states pact. As a result, announcements were made on Nov. 18 of formal negotiations for n Washington and Louden pact.on trade agreements. The British government hopes that the agreement will be concluded by the spring of 1Q38.

This system of grazing .vill Increase the value of winter gracs for the cows, advises V. L. gg, extension dairyman, Unl- vei'tlty of Arkansas College of g'i (culture. The fresh, succulent growth pro- vlied by small-grain winter pas- :nres Is very beneficial In wintering dairy cows. Mr. Gregg said. Winter, pastures provide cheap feed to supplement stored roughage and grains, and their succulence stimulates milk production and tones up the body functions to improve the health and vigor of the cow. Shade Trees Should Be Given Attention Now There are many 1 shade trees in Mississippi comity yards which should be given attention during the winter months, says Miss Cora Lee Colemnn, home demonstration a fjent. Young trees can be pruned to avoid the unattractive "slingshot" appearance thai so often occurs. When tu'o branches of equal length develop on the young tree, one can be shortened to make the other leader dominant. Side branches should be trimmed oil for-about G feet, as a low-branched tree is not satisfactory, suggests P. T. Ecloii, extension horticulturist, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. In older trees, tlie most conflicting branches should be sawed Jut to prevent rubbing and crowding. In removing large limbs, Mi-. E'ctou advises sawing slightly Just oelow the final cut so that the oark will not be stripped. Sawing should be done close to the limb or trunk so that a stub will not be left to interfere with healing the cut, and the cuts should be paint;d over to prevent rotting. Sprouus should be trimmed off the trunk, jnd the borers killed with a hook- id wire. Leaning trees that are still fairly young can be straightened by bracing with a wire pegged to the ground and gradually tightened, flic wire should be • padded"with garden hose or old rubber tire to prevent cutting the bark.
