Dr. Oeorpe A. Bartholomew Jr.. who spent several months on an Island north of the' Aleutian group, reports that the seals have a harem arrangement iviih a dominant bull keeping anywhere from 2 to 50 females—and their pups. The harem is maintained by fishting off the challenge of other bulls. Each summer the bull must start all over again and line up a new harem because during the nther seasons the seals live on the high seas—females coming as far south as Southern California. Dr. Bartholomew said. When bulls get interested In fighting over females they will sometimes go without food or drink for stx to eight weeks.

You know, we've overlooked a good bet for a long time. We used to ship our bauxite away for refining into aluminum. And every school boy knows that about 90% of the bauxite mined in America conies from Arkansas. Now we're doing the processing right on the home field. What's more, several companies are operating huge potlines and smelting the bauxite into aluminum. Arkansans, generally, are loolc- ing t» the future. They showed that when they voted to retain legal sale of malt beverages. The Brewing Industry, likewise, is looking to the future ami its educational program of Self-Regulation in which the retailers cooperate, assuring maintenance of wholesome, law-abiding conditions for sale of its products.
