>AGE EIGHT (THE DAILY NEWS—LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN. FRIDAY, NOV. 17, 1939. Accompanied by Frank Kibbey, They Go by Auto to New Orleans, La. An interesting log of his journey was received .by The News today from Frank A. Morse, well-known Sheridan township resident. Mr. Morse, accompanied by Frank Kibbey of Summit township, left Nov. 6 for New Orleans, La. 'Says Mr. Morse in his interesting manner: "Nov. 6. Frank Kibbey and I leave Ludingtpn, headed south, drive 218 miles to Michigan City, Ind. "Nov. 1. Drive south through the rich black farm lands Of Indiana and Illinois, 304 miles to Centralia, HI. - "Jtov. 8. See many coal mines and oil wells along the road to Cairo, where we cross Ohio river at junction with Mississippi. After a visit to recently .excavated buried city of the Mound Builders, at Wickliffe, Ky., sotth through the badly eroded and "patch farmed' Kentucky and Tennessee country to Memphis, Tenn.—282 miles today. "Nov. 9. At Memphis a meal of -meat, four vegetables and coffee may be had for 15 cents, a beautiful city of 300,000 people. Going on south through Tennessee and Mississippi, 264 miles to Hazelhurst, Miss., via Jackson. We see many colored cotton pickers at work. The farm homes are poor shanties, but in the towns are many beautiful homes. It is hard for the people to, believe they have had a harder frost than Michigan. It has frosted unusually to the Gulf of Mexico. "'Nov, 10. Over the low flat country, 166 miles to New Orleans, La. It is about 100 in the shade. See the fisheries and seven miles of wharves where ships from every country (except Germany) may be seen at dock. The road down has been lined with corn fields, later cot- tort fields alternating with corn. Today we saw some of the peanut harvest. This old historic city is very beautiful, flowers everywhere and stately palm trees line Canal street where we are located." Dramatic Rescue at Sea After Nazi U-Boat Torpedoes British Steamer Bucks Continue to Fall Despite Warm Weather (Continued from Pace 1) was reported to be the second In that district to get his buck, bringing one in early Wednesday morning, shortly after Lake.

Firm Convicted SOUTH BEN17, Nov. 17.—(/P>— Government lawyers today hailed the anti-trust conviction of General Motors corporation, world's largest automobile manufacturer, as a victory in the broad federal anti-monopoly drive and a blow at factory control of car financing. A federal jury of Hoosier farmers and little business men Thursday night convicted the corporation and three affiliates of violating the Sherman act by forcing dealers to give installment sales paper to the General Motors Acceptance corporation. But it acquitted 17 officials of the concerns, including President William S. Knudsen and Board Chairman Alfred P. Sloan Jr., of General Motors, General Manager M. K Coyle of Chevrolet, a GM vice president, and President John J. Schumann Jr., of GMAC. The affiliates were GMAC, GMAC of Indiana and the General Motors Sales corporation. the French lines are side by side, just as they are, politically, in Europe, while a few steps away, side by side, are the German and Italian lines. All the bis liners of these companies are first-rate ships, big, roomy, fast, and modern. But any newspaper man will admit that the Italian liners— the Conti de Savoia, the Conti Grande— are the most interesting and picturesque ... I don't know what it is, but somehow, they seem livelier, and more colorful . . . Perhaps it is their snow white decks and their smokestacks of Venetian red and emerald green. * # # Some people live here a lifetime without realizing that the rivers and the harbor surrounding New York, are dotted with scores of islands, all of which play a definite part in the city's life.
