Herman Talmadge has found a road-seeking delegation that would not take yes for an answer. Georgia governors traditionally have been plagued with such road delegations. The governor said he has given only one group a definite promise they would get their road. But the delegation kept wrangling with him. Finally in desperation he called state highway director James L. Gillis. "Jim," the governor said. "I've got a road delegation over here that won't take yes for an answer."

II, 1349—FAGF. 7 Two Denomination Notes Are Rare; One Gave Hotel Clerk Bad Night By T. K. HAMMER Librarian* American Numismatic Association* Some years ago a hotel nigh-t clerk couldn't make his cash balance. That was not the worst of it —he nearly went mad before Inrirning why. Thirst time he counted the money, ho wo;?' $!>0 ?hort, but an immediate recount showed all the money there that should be; another count Showed the cash $50 short— and immediately afterward it balanced ag-ain. Others in the hotel' had the same experience trying 0 got a balance. Finally; it was discovered that me note was imprinted $100 on ne side and $50 on the other. This wo-denomination note was to be- ome famous within a few weeks, the hotel managers did not tnow that. They turned it in at 1 bank that day for $EO, suffering S50 loss, since it had been ac- epted as $100. It developed that each time a note was counted by the hnto! i-k. he turned it over, so that SOVIET DELEGATE to the United Nations, Jacob Malik, (top, left) is pictured at Lake Success, N. Y., as he demanded that member states submit information on "conventional armaments as well as information on atomic weapons." Using his right hand to emphasize a point, Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Vishinsky (bottom) attacks "Anglo-American monopolist circles," charging they have "taken up arms" to overthro-w the governments of Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania. . (International} SCOUT PROBLEM St. James, Minn. (UP)—Boy Scouts got to jumping up and down in one of their weekly sessions in a room upstains over tho public library here. They jumped so hard that a large '-:pct!on of plaster fell from the library ceiling. The only book damaged was "Problems of Child Delinquency." NESCO PORTABLE ROOM HEATER $10.95 WEISS BEN FRANKLIN STORE CHURCH ST. NAUGATtJCK the "freak" showed up as a $50 one time and aisi a $100 note the next. Within the next few months, the bill changed hands several times-, bringing a higher amount at each sale, until it brought $800 or more. Several bills imprinted $1 on one side and $2 on the other and at least one $5-$10 freak and a $10-$20 one are known. It is doubtful, however, if more than 10 or 12 such bills are in existence, according to Loyd Gottys, Davenport, la., president of' the American Numismatic* association and leading authority on paper money. Because, of their rarity, the notes bring $100 to nearly $1,000 today. They are scarce because the sharp eyes of inspectors at the bureau of engraving and printing in Washington permit few to get into circulation. Notes with errors are constantly found and destroyed there. Due to technicalities in printing notes, the reverse is printed about two months before the fice. Printing two denominations could result easily. Carpenters Never Had It So Good Nebraska City, Neb. — Ninety- year-old I. B. Manson has no plans to quit carpentering. He says it's j getting easier all the time. After 70 years In the trade. Manson said he's "die sure" if he retired. Besides, he said, there isn't so much to worry about any more. When he first started, he said, "we went out into the woods, cut down the necessary timber, hewed the wood and put up the barn right on the spot. It was all hand work. The frames were pinned together with oak pins." Enjoy A DELICIOUS SAXDWICH at ROOKY'S WAYSIDE KITCHEN Waterbury Boad at Vlatts Mill* Open Dally 12 Noon to 12 Midnight Sundays 3 P.'
