TWKLT1 BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURrER NEWI FRIDAY, APRIL *, 19M Harriman on Hand At Cooperstown's 'Day of Big Sap' COOPERSTOWN, N. Y. (AP) — Today was the day of the big sap, the big drop, or the bto sugar-off or whatever you will in the way of maple-syrup puns. Gov 4verell Harriman, New York Democrat, Gov. Joseph B. Johnson, Vermont Republican and by proxy seven other states and Canada opened the door to such levity by partic- ipatog in a contest over the best mapl^syrup. ^ ^ Festival in Cooperstown was one of the gooiest since the white man captured the tree of glory from tlie Indians. Almost the only thing that didn' have syrup in it today in this his torlc village was the pen Harri man had for signing a bill to make the maple tree New York's officia' tree.

Store Sales Are Up ST. LOUIS W—Department store sales in the Eighth Federal Reserve District last week rose an average 5 per cent over sales of the same week last year. The St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank reported today. The top increase \vas 16 per cent at Little Rock. Sales went up 15 per cent at Memphis, 7 per cent in Louisville and just 1 per cent in the St. Louis area. It'* Official And nothing could stop him from signing that bill — which touched off the sweet-toothed controversy. He and New York's GOP-controlled Legislature agreed that New Yor)c should adopt officially the tree that the school children of the state took to their heart: back in 1889. Vermont, which had adopted the maple officially In 1949, quickly took offense and other states and Canada joined the run. Fate played a trick on the festival. The weather in the Northeast this year hasn't been maple weather. But the entrants figured the quality of their syrup had not suffered along with quantity. Others In Event In addition to New York and Vermont, the contetants were Massachusetts, Maine, . Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin. Minnesota and the Province of Quebec. Harriman will announce the winner tonight and present a governor's cup — filled 'with syrup, no doubt. The judges were five sweet, newspaper food editors becoming sweeter all the time. They had to do some tasting on a train from New York City before arriving here. Then came this menu, drawn from more than 500 submitted to the state Commerce Department as the most unusual recipes using maple products: Ufh! Ribs, maple barbecued; skillet chicken, sweet and sour; maple corn 1 scalloped sweet potatoes and rjineapples in syrup; french dressing with mnple syrup; manle charlotte russe, and maple fluff. Ugh, Is rightl The food editors were Isabel McGovern. Mary Hornaday. Margaret PcttJgre, Alice Peterson and Ida Bailey Allen.

Religious Training The first problem, it said, arises from modern schools' aim to foster moral, ethical and spiritual values, which "invariably involves widely different convictions." The repot said "judicial decisions on church-state relations have clarified only small parts of the whole question" and called for continued study. '"Die second difficult question." it continued, ' 'concerns the issue of segregation...this too is an area of conflicting opinions not entirely resolved by Supreme Court action." The committee said it agreed "that the intent of the majority of the American people is to abolish racial segregation ns soon as possible." As for school building needs the committee wrote: ''There is a great deal of conflicting information on the si?,e of the nation's clr.ssroom shortage... one common factor runs through all of ii: (he shortage is immense."
