The United States readily leads he world in the use of silver in the arts, science and industries, and consumes about three times as much of the metal as Britain. Neary 10,000,000 ounces of silver goes nto sterling silverware for our homes. As the price of silver has dropped, it also has become generally used for sources of different purposes in science and industry. The chief use of silver in industry is in photography, especially for making the miles of films which unroll in the movie theaters. The smelters and refiners have made a fine art of reclaiming silver, so that 80 per cent of the silver once used in tilms eventually is recovered and used again. According to silver authorities 22,000,000 ounces were used in 1932 for a great variety of purposes as compared with 1,200,000 ounces which was coined into the familiar currency of the country.

(HE)— The salvage .tug Salvor wirelessed agents Friday that divers had removed the safe from the gold-laden steamer Merida, which went down in 1911 with $5,000,000 in golden nuggets, rubies and emeralds. The strongbox was believed to contain the crown jewels of the fallen emperor, Maxmillian of Mexico. Capt. H. L. Bowdoin, commanding the salvage expedition, said the safe had not been opened. The safe was salvaged from the purser's office which adjoinls a room in the hull believed to contain $4,000,000 in fortunes of the Matlero revolutionaries. A few days before the Merida went down after a crash in the fog with the steamer Admiral Farragut the revolutionaries stormed Juarez Cruz and placed their treasuries aboard the steamer.

Ho Is exo«ctod to be over to «uthorH1*s In FARM NEWS Linseed Oil Meal Is Best • Protein Feed Linseed oilmeal is a better protein feed than whole soybeans or soybean oilmeal for fattening steer calves, judging by the results obtained here during the past year at Iowa State. college, when 84 head of steers and 17 heifers were fed out The results of the feeding tests were explained here Friday to an estimated crowd of 1,000 farmers from all parts of the state. The occasion was the annual Iowa cattle feeder's "Hey Day." Most of the cattle used in the feeding trails were on hand so that they could be shown to the visitors. The feeding experiments and program *ere in charge of C. C. Culbertson. Linseed oilmeal, supplementing a ration of shelled corn, corn silage', alfalfa hay, salt and minerals, produced more *?pid gains than whole soybeans or soybean oilmeal. Furthermore, the calves on. linseed oil- meal were appraised 25 cents' a hundred higher than any other lot, and they made the largest margin over feed cost of any of the groups fed. After paying for their feed at the following prices: Corn 23 cents a bushel, linseed oilmeal $26 a ton; alfalfa hay $10 a ton; and corn silage $3.50 a ton, the calves, on the linseed oilmeal ration showed a margin over feed cost (excluding feed saved by the hogs) of $6.9( each. The lot next closest was .fee exactly the same except that the calves got soybean oilmeal in place of linseed oilmeal. These made $4.79 each over feed cost. Soybean oilmeal was charged at $28 a ton.. The tests during the past year had two main objectives: To determine whether whole soybeans can be used profitably, as compared with linseed oilmeal or soybean oilmeal in fattening calves on the usual corn belt ration, and if they can be in what quantities they should be fed; second, to find out whether calves can be started on a limited grain ration and later fattened out on full feed with profit The answer to the latter question has been only partially answered, for two or three lots started on the limited grain ration are being continued on feed until properly finished. The lots fed whole soybeans all paid for their feed and showed margins over feed cost per steer ranging from $1.07 each to ?2.70. Soybeans were charged at 60 cents a bushel. One lot was fed for five months on soybeans and the last three months on linseed oilmeal. The steers in this group showed a higher degree of finish, were appraised slightly higher and made a larger margin over feed cost than the lots fed soybeans thruout the eight months. One lot was started on a limit'd ration of half corn and half oats, along with silage, alfalfa hay, salt, minerals and linseed oilmeal. This lot grew faster, but the selling price and margin was almost exactly the sam<; as with the lot fed shelled corn thruout. Oats were charged at 14 cents a bushel. The trial with oats shows, according to C. C. Cnlbertson. that -oats can he used siKCessfully for calves, at least early in the feeding period, if the price is sufficiently low as compared with corn. The heifers used in the fefdin,; tests fattened raur.h faster than the steers and were marketed In Miy They showed margins over feed cost of nearly $3 erch. not counting the feed saved by the hogs, Tne program for the cattle feed ers yesterdav morning consisted nf a review of the feeding experiments and the results obtained.

'experience* In fending baby WARM SPRINGS, Ga. (tIE>—For eight years a Warm Springs farmer has been under the injunction of the present master of the white house-to "write me frequently and tell me all about it" As a result, Franklin D. Roosevelt knew what he was talking j about when he moulded into shape the farm relief act. His Overseer The farmer was the overseer of Roosevelt's own 2,500-acre farm on Pine Mountain here. In addition to his request that his overseer "write me frequently," Roosevelt stipulated that he should "be a good neighbor. Work with our neighbors. Help them with their problems. Accept their help with ours." It was in that friendly atmosphere that the farm prospered; so that tbiiay it is showing an actual profit on its operations. Foodstuffs for the farm table, and for the livestock comprise the bulk of the production of the Robsevelt farm, while on its pasturage graze' short horn and Hereford cattle. Under cultivation are acres of soy beans, velvet beans, corn, grapes. The farm never has purchased foodstuffs for the cattle under the Roosovejt management 5,000 Pines Typical of its owner's interest in reforestation, the farm is nurtur: ing 5,000 North Carolina white pine, and it is planned to set out 5,000 more this winter. Th« farm is modest in its equipment There are n.o great, impressive barns, just an ordinary set-up. The original manager was E. B. Doyle, recently appointed by Roosevelt to be U. S.

Supreme Court Justice Peter Schrnucfc Friday denied "reluctantly" an application for appointment of a receiver for heavyweight champion, Primo Camera's share of his purse for his bout with Jack Sharkey. Theodore J. Skrapp sought the received to protect the claim of Emilia Tersini, London waitress, who Tecently was awarded a $14,616 judgment against Camera by an English court on breach of promise grounds. Skrapp charged that Camera had assigned the Sharkey purse and a farm in Italy to Louis Soresi, his manager, to evade the waitress' claim. Justice Schmuck admitted there was good reason "to suspect the honesty and sincerity of the transfer of the funds in question but that astute advice" kept Camera and Soresi wJtliin the law.
