Miss Mason, who had worked as secretary lor 26 ye»n wllh two t>r three-week vacations each Summer, juit finished the filth month of a year off with full wages, She said she thought working an elght- iour day It more restful than gallivanting around lh« country, agency which gives nil employes a* 12-month leave after six years of iserrlce. The plan was originated by her employer, M. Glenn Miller, who asked only that Ihe vacationers stay out of the office and wrlle him once a week lo say what a good llnw Ihoy arc hiving. mcrs themselves have a responsibility In supplying the county office with the necessary evidence of practices carried out.

She took off July 1 on a Western tour, «nd is resting up at home before travel- ling through the East. The first few weeks ot her vacation were a "real rest" from the work she had been doing lor more than two decades, but then using up leisure hours became a Job, she laid "Mr. Miller save us the choice of travelling or going to school, she satcl. "The only requirement was that we Icam something so we would be more valuable workers. "I can tell you It's been a lot of work—anil also a lot of fun. I'm having the kind of Lime I've always dreamed about, but it's been a bit Livestock difficult figuring out what to do or 12 whole months, Instead of having your 9 to 8 life all figured out for you." At first, she said, II was "real work," making herself stay in bed until 1C in the morning, or noon. Now it's a job getting up In lime Lo make Ihe next train, she said. Miss Mason, In her first five month!, visited Montana, the Canadian Rockies, Jasper National Park, Glacier National Park, toured through Washington, where she spent several months with relatives, and then travelled through Oregon, California and parts' of Mexico. The second half of her trip will lake her to Boston, New York, Washington, Atlanta, "and any place else I decide to go." "I think with less than hall my vacation used up I'm already more valuable ao an employe," Miss Mason said. "But it will be nice to gel back to an eight-hour day." ST.

(TJ.P)—The social register for 1948 has dropped :i Vanderbllt, a Gushing and a Topping, among others, and added a ew new mimes, including that of lie widow of Hurry Hopkins, it was earned yesterday. . The new Blue Book purged Har•y Ciuhlng 4lh, who married Georgette Windsor, an actress, and became embroiled In several Holly- vood night club skirmishes. Another socialite whose name'was dropped was George Vanderbilt, the brother of Alfred Gwynne Vamlcvbilt, who was eliminated from the book last year. Still another who apparently was banished because of his marriage was Henry J. (Bob) Topping, whose wife is the actress, Arllne Judge. Ashley Chandler, great grandson ot the l&tf. John. Jacob Aator, will not find his name in.the new register. Marital troubles apparently were' the reason since his wife, the former Princess Maria Antonla. de Braganca, has been in Italy for the past three years. Patricia Hoffman Nlckerson Hos- held apparently blasted her way ut of the book via a line for car- ylng a .pistol. A Boston resident omplained last April that she had | pointed a pistol at him. The committee, however. <f i much more lenient with M'_ud Stevenson, daughter of Malcolm Stevenson, who had a police encounter last Summer when ihe ran down a Roslyn, N. Y., street clad In bra and scantiest She was included. Louise Gill Macy Hopkins, widow of the'late Harry Hopkins, was included. She was married recently to socialite Geoffrey 'Gates. Among others who were listed for the first litne were Sam Peck, who married Barbara Whitney Henry, heiress lo the t50.000.000 fortune, and William Pniny, CBS tycoon, who married Barbara Gushing Mortimer. The committee took no cognizance of the recent publicity given to Mrs. Hamilton Fish Webster when she adopted Ihe 57-year-old Brig. Gen. Ralph O. Tobln a few weeks ago at Newporj,, R. I. Both Mrs. Webster and her .adopted son were Included. . C.

Strip Cropping Kliective And farmers In the wind affected ,rea have Increased their , slrtp Topping materially too, Mr. Bll- irey pointed out. They leave 12 by 5-foot strips of rye and vetch al- crnately through a field of row :rop every 20 to 50 rows as a pro- ectton against the blowing sand. Mississippi County is also recog- nised as having the best drainage system In the della, he said, but .here-is much to be done especially farm drainage. In 1946 North Mississippi County farmers earned 137,136 In ditching payments through :he AAA and it Is .estimated .that these farmers will earn near $55,300 for 1947 ditching and spoil bank lev- cling. Completed conservation practices should be reported by farmers lo Ihe County Agricultural Conservation Committee or at the county office, according A. C. Spellings, of West Ridge 'Chairman of the Triple-A committee. Delay in reporting will delay payments, he said. AH conservation practices under the 1947 program must be completed by Dec. 31, but farmers who have completed practices shmild not wait until then to report. This cooperation with the county office uill be helping us do you a better job and will speed up' payments, Mr. Spellings said.. . *«. All practices must be reported by Jan. 15, 1348.
