Dr. Shelton said superiors asked him at one time to shave off his beard but that he refused because the beard had "nothing to do with my teaching." He has been at Mercy College seven years.

On the side of old Blue Mounds sunggles the little community of Blue Mounds. We catch a glimpse of the home surrounded by a garden where Ella Odelia Oimoen picks about 10 four - leaf clovers each year that she sends to the eidtor of The Capital Times. I wish she would send a couple before election. . . . Jack says that we are now traveling over the old military road that led from Ft. Howard at Green Bay to Ft Crawford at Prairie du Chien where Jefferson Davis, later the leader of the Confed erate forces, was stationed. IT IS GOOD to note that the little farmers cheese factories and the little one - room schools are still active and present in some parts ot the state.

THE PLATTE VILLE mound with a giant white M built by the students of the Mining school of years now incorporated in the Platteville State College. The big M on the plank of the mound can be seen for miles ... The streets in Platteville, like the other old mining towns are hilly, faced by false front buildings and with one block off Front Street reserved for taverns. For years the local WCTU has carried on a campaign to keep saloons and taverns off Front Street, the city's main stem.

THIS TOUR WAS described by Herb Jacobs in the Thursday edition of The Capital Times. We were especially interested in the stories, by three students who are studying the merits of the Babcock and Shain tests in testing butterfat in the milk content brought to dairies and cheese factories by tanners. Integration itself wasn't hind their effort, he said. Dele gates irom these states think we ought to buck the Legion." He said there is no break be tween the Legion and the Society. "You still have to be a Legionnaire to get in the 40 and 8," Hobbie said. The controversy has been sim mering for about 10 years and tinaiiy reached a head in when the Legion prchibitec society from parading with the Legion or using the Legioi blem. The society took its name from a legend on French box cars in World War I. The cars were marked to carry 40 men or eight horses. Yank Follower of Castro Seized HAVANA tfl Mai. William! Morgan, who gave up his American citizenship to follow Fidel Castro, has been arrested on sus picion of helping insurgents in the Escambry Hills, the Cuban army announced Friday night. Morgan, of Toledo, Ohio, claimed in Aug - ; list, 1959, that he; as an anti - Castro plotter and: successfully bait - . a trap that led to the arrest of several hundredr Cubans and the; capture of a planeload of invaders from the Domini - lean Republic.

Through his press secretary, Sen. John F. Kennedy, Democratic candidate for president and a Roman Catholic, issued a statement in New York that he "considers it wholly improper" for churchmen of any faith to tell members of their church how to vote. Puerto Rico's Popular Demo cratic Party which got 65 per cent of the popular vote in 1956 is not affiliated with the mainland Democratic Partv. The is land's Republican Party, which is I campaigning for statehood, has connections with the mainland: Republican Party but Puert Ricans do not have a vote for President of the United States. THE BABCOCK TEST has long been the great achievement by Prof. Babcock that has been looked upon as a Bible of the Wisconsin dairy industry. A new called the Sham test has ap peared as a substitute for the Babcock test. It is argued that the new test eliminates the dan - acid burns and living glass trom a centntugal machine. How ever it is common belief that the Babcock test will be retained be cause it is more reliable than the Shain test, though it is less ex pensive. THEN TO the poultry build ing where we see 1,100 pure white chickens suspiciously eyeing the invasion of their headquarters. They are fed from a moving carrier rail. It is reported that the flock has been remarkably free of the usual chicken diseases. On leaving the poultry building we see the new dormitories for the oncoming young men and women who will enter the college. Adjoining the poultry building is a big sign on the "site of the new physical education and health building, revealing that the architectural firm of Gausewitz and Cashin of Madison designed the build ing.

Negroes Doomed By White Jury ATTANOOGA, Tenn. ffl - Four negroes heard the sentence! iof death by electrocution passed upon them Friday night, after a jury of 12 white men convicted them of raping a young white gin - Robert Parks. 23; J. C. Kelley r: Wilson Williams, 17; anc James Cunningham, 22, stood quietly as the sentences were Parks suddenly began weapmg and pulled out a handkerchief to wipe his eyes. Punisnment. as provided by Tennessee law, was fixed by the jury, with Criminal Court Judge Campbell Carden passing sentence. The judge said he would set a date for the electrocution later. presumably would be the bene ficiary' of any votes swayed by tne pastoral letter. As published in the independ ent newspaper El Mundo. the let ter declared, "It is our obligation to prohibit Catholics from giving their votes to a partv that ac cepts as its own the morality of the regime ot liberty negating nnsuan morals. It attacked two laws pushed through by the Popular Demo crats permitting the teaching of oirtn control and allowing steril ization to deal with the island s over - population problem. The let ter also assailed public tolerance common law marriages, and protested defeat of a bill in the Legislature to give school chil dren time off for religious in struction. It was signed by Archbishop James r. Davis ot ian Juan, bishop James E. McManus of Ponce and Luis Aponte Martinez, titular bishop of Lares. &i Mundo said the letter was ito be read in churches next Sunday. Archhishop Davis told report ers he thought the letter was non - political. Asked if the church! ! would penalize Catholics who dis - l regarded the letter, he said. it is a matter between a Catholic! and his conscience.' Janesville Man To Head Society Theodore P. Bidwell, a Janes - i ville attorney, was elected Friday afternoon as ths president of thel Wisconsin Easter Seal Society. He succeeds Mrs. H. W. Miller. Appleton. William S. Hobbins, 515 Far - well Dr., was elected vice president. Mrs. Byron Spear, Milwaukee, as re - elected secretary and Clare Rejahl, 225 E. Sunset Ct., was re - elected treasurer. They were named at the meet ing of the society's board of directors at the Loraine Hotel. Misses Curve, Dies In Flames WAUSAU ffl - Richard C.

Klein termed it a "clear - cut vic tory for the vice president." roreign policy was the subject of the debate, and the antagon ists stuck - to the theme. worse than that " Kennedy said the United States lacked the prestige and influence to ask other countries south oi the border, and elsewhere, to join in an economic quarantine of Cuba. Only joint action, he said, would make economic sanctions effective. "Castro is only the beginning of our difficulty throughout Latin America." Kennedy said. He charged the Eisenhower administration wifh ignoring that part of the world, in which he said Castro's "influence is growing enormously." Kennedy hung up on the Cuban question with a query of his own. He said Nixon had said last month that if the United States had provided the kind of economic aid five years ago it now provides. Castro may never have taken over, adding: "Why didn't we?" On defense of 0 t e m 0 v and Matsu, which prompted restatements of the candidates' views, Kennedy challenged Nixon "to deny that the administration has least several missions to persuade Chiang Kai - shek to withdraw irom these islands. Time ran nut on the panelists' questions and answers at that point, and Nixon passed it over in his closing summary. The vice president, concluding the program, claimed more progress under the Eisenhower administration than under Democratic Presidents. Kennedv declared the State De partment has been unwilling to divulge the results of surveys which show "a sharp drop" in U. S. prestige abroad.
