That is the opinion of Cap!;. Russell Perry of the U. S. Army, who with Mrs. Perry is visiting at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Perry, 316 North Harrison street. Capt. Perry, recently transferred to the Presidio in San Francisco, Calif., has been stationed for over two years in the Philippine islands where he has been able to gain a first hand knowledge of people and conditions there. Capt. Perry's last visit to Ludington was two and one-half years ago, shortly after being transferred from Columbus, O., to the Philippine islands. An ardent football fan, Capt. Perry, a graduate of Michigan State college, regrets he will not be able to see the annual game between State and the University of Michigan, early in October.

Perry said the average common laborer receives about 20 cents a day. The work is hard. Raising rice and sugar cane are two principal industries. Land Owners Wealthy "The land owners, however," Mr. Perry continued, "are a fairly wealthy class and control most of the money. They have many modern conveniences and luxuries and constitute the principal body of automobile owners. "Getting back to automobiles," Mr. Perry remarked, "the islanders are fond of large, gaudy cars. It's a hard proposition to sell a conventional color car. The thing to do in a case like that is to paint it red or yellow and it will be sold in no time at all." The United States has done wondefrs since gaining possession of the islands, Mr. Perry stated. "It has spent a lot of money developing the Philippines but the country today plainly shows American influence although many of the older Filipinos still speak Spanish. Many old Spanish customs and tradi- interesting observations concern- tions still remain. This, however. ing the islands and their people. Love Sports "Filipinos are a great sport- loving people, very much like Americans in that respect," he said, "it's surprising the way they go for American games, especially baseball. They have th,eir own commercial 'leagues just like Ludington or any other American city." is natural, because of the long period the Islands were under Spanish rule. Thanks to the U. S. the Philippines have a fine .school system. All students today are compelled to study English, now tpoken as fluently on the islands as Spanish. Philippine radio broadcasting stations still do slightly more than half their S t a it e - Wide Conservation Meeting Will Be Held on Sept. 26 and 27 ' Women's clubs have been invited to send delegates to the sixth annual state-wide conservation conference for women, to be held in Ludington Sept. 26 and 27.

MINK FARM IS ]LOCATEDJ:N FERN FERN.—Fern valley, rich in t-s variety of diversified farm- ng and industries, also boasts mink farm. This farm is pcratcd, in addition to general irming, by Arthur Anderson .1 the old homestead bordering ast lake. In appearance, the rows of Doden boxes resemble an Mary, but upon closer exami- iation we find mink houses /ith wired pens. Forty-eight lew pens were added this year. Thirty-five old, or adult minks, id 67 young ones are harbored . They are of the Yukon d Eastern strain. • Great care maintained in their diet as at insures the rich, glossy Its. Ground fish, a variety of •jetables and horse flesh are vays welcome. To keep the meat fresh, Mr. derjon has installed an cfrfc refrigerator. Homecoming- Enjoyed "he. homecoming of the Hill (1 Bebee families was held at • home of Mr. and Mrs. Wal- Bebee of New Era recently.

"I've never seen people who will bet on anything as quickly as Filipinos will," Mr. Perry said. "Why, those natives will take a chance on anything." "It's a funny thing, too, because they haven't much to start with. Filipinos have nothing and try to double it by betting." he added laughingly. "Cock fights are still a favorite pastime for many of the j people, ranking high, from a , spectator's standpoint. with I baseball and horse racing as a major sport. Big Temptation Commenting on the generally accepted opinion that some foreign power might be tempted to grab the Philippines if granted their independence, Capt. Perry stated, it would be entirely possible and -worthwhile, because the- islands are rich in mineral deposits and have numerous other valuable resources. Concerning the climate, Capt. Perry stated the average daytime temperature is about 95 while during the night 80 degrees is the average. The climate is easy to become accustomed to, he said, because of j its consistency the year around.! "The number of automobiles found on the islands is rather surprising," Capt. Perry continued. "Roads are numerous and fairly well developed and motoring is becoming more and more one of the favorite pastimes of Filipinos financially able to enjoy this luxury. "Gasoline sells for about 40 cents a gallon in American money. This may sound high l?ut practically everything costs more on the islands, principally because of the high freight rate. An automobile costing $1,000 in the U. S. runs up to about $1,500 there. "The average Filipino," Mr. Perry reflected, "is regarded in many circles as a high class Oriental. Filipinos can live on a small budget, a few cents a day sustaining them comfortably. They are great pork eaters, al- The Philippines, formerly about two days distance by steamer from Hongkong, China, are now only four hours from the Chinese city via Clipper ships." Commenting on his transfer from the hot Philippines to chilly San Francisco, Mr. Perry agreed it would be quite a change. While in San Francisco last June, not once he said, were he or his wife able to wear real light summer clothes. Capt. Perry was born and raised in Ludington. He attended schools here, graduating from Ludington high school in 1910. In 1917 he entered the army and has remained in the service ever since.

A service will be conducted at 2 p. m. at the home of Mrs. Olson and at 2:30 p. m. from the Bethany Lutheran church with Rev. John Christensen officiating.

The body will be returned to the home of Mrs. Olson this afternoon, where it will rest until the time of the services. Interment will be made at Lakeview cemetery. Freesoil Bean Season Closes The busy days connected with the bean harvest ended Friday when the bean station closed. The crop was good and receipts normal considering the acreage which was cut almost in half this year. The greatest amount received in one day at Freesoil the 3,000-acre Ludington State park, motion pictures and colored slides of outdoor life and group discussions of Michigan projects. Headquarters of the sessions will be at Hotel Stearns. Conservation chairmen and other officials of local clubs attending are to hear Harold Titus, well-known magazine writer on outdoor topics and a member of the Michigan" state conservation commission. He will be guest speaker at the luncheon Sept. 27. Two other authorities will collaborate in presenting a word picture of Michigan's physical development, in terms of its natural resources, their use, preservation and protection. The speakers' names are yet to be announced. The club women will be given their choice of hiking trips to lookout points along foot trails among hills and dunes at the State park. Luncheon on Sept. 26 will be prepared and served by CCC enrollees in their camp at the park. Highlights of the nature hikes include an old logging trail, a Lake Michigan coast guard station and lighthouse, an eagle's nest, a natural juniper 'garden, pine woods and extensive hardwood forest. Dealers, Garagemen Attend Get-Together Over 100 dealers and garage- men from Mason, Manistee and Oceana counties attended the annual get-together held Friday night at Polish hall. The meeting was sponsored co- unctly by the Prestone Anti- Breeze Co. and the Reliable Tire and Accessory Co. of Ludington. A full evening's entertainment was provided, including refresh- meats. Moving pictures were a sopular feature of the program The March of Time and the Ad- 'ancement of Cooling Systems n Automobiles and the Necessity of Proper Anti-Freeze, were shown. WHOOPING COUGH Whooping cough is a dangerous disease. More people died from it in Michigan during the past 10 years than from scarlet fever or typhoid. Ninety two percent of the 2,019 deaths were in children under three years of age. It is spread by droplets from the nose and throat and possibly by articles contaminated by these droplets. It is most contagious during the early stage before the whoop develops and its control is extremely difficult because it may be contagious for a long period of time. The Incubation period is about two weeks though it may run as long as three weeks. The disease occurs in three stages, the first or catarrhal stage resembles an ordinary cold or cough and lasts a week or two. The cough then becomes more spasmodic or paroxysmal and the characteristic whoop appears. This second or whooping stage may last for several weeks and gradually mergers into the third or de- lining stage. The complications of the disease are what makes it so dangerous. Broncho-pneumonia The Star recalled that Swiss sources reported on that day seeing the glare of fire in the direction of .Friedrichshafen. The paper gave no indication of the source of its information concerning the Graf Zeppelin. (The Associated Press has received no confirmation of the reported destruction of the Graf Zeppelin, although it did receive a dispatch from Switzerland reporting the glare, is the most common and most Serious of these, being responsible for nine-terjtns of the deaths. , The care of the child with whooping cough is important. Keep the child warmly dressed and out of doors, if the weather is not too cold. Rooms should not be kept too warm and the humidity should be kept by keeping pans of water on the stove or radiators. Hot, dry air is harmful. Feeding is often troublesome as vomiting often occurs after eating. If this happens, another meal should be given immediately. Prompt isolation of the child is necessary upon signs of a cold or cough to prevent spread of the disease. A vaccine to prevent whooping cough has been developed. It offers almost complete protection. Ask your doctor about the use of this .vaccine. Secretaries Hold I Final Meeting (Continued from Page 1) ly together.

Protest Nulling of Electrical Board LANSING, Sept. 9.—(#>)—At- orney General Thomas Read today instructed his subordinates to petition the supreme court to reconsider its ruling ol last week which wiped out the state electrical administrative board. Read said the purpose of the petition was to retain the board's licensing powers, if that were possible. The department said the state general fund had benefit- ted to the amount of $141,000 in fees from electrical licenses from 1935 to 1939 and that during the same period inspectors had received $621,000 in fees. No one in the attorney general's department would say whether there was a possibility that the state might be called on to refund the fees.
