Perhaps he was as vague ns that—if they thought of him at all or even knew of him—in the minrts of the experts who looked back 100 years and made their appraisal of men and events in the 10th century.

The experts didn't foresee what lay ahead for the 20th Century, and Marx's hand in it. At least, the ones I read didn't. And then there was the August- ininn abbot in Austria. Oregor Mendel.

Bilbrey spoke lo members of Blythcville's Rotary Club on the comity's agricultural outlook for 1950 yesterday when the group met at Hotel Noble. Mr. Bilbrey began his discussion with an outline of the duties and operation of the county agent's office. He emphasized the fact that the agent's work is supported by county, slate and federal government hinds and therefore will probably never liccomc a [itiHUcal tool. Speaking on acreage control, Mr. Bilbrey said many farmers fear an aggresisve farm policy on the part of the government. "The British farmer has been robbed of practically all his independence. We don't want that to happen here. This doesn't mean that farmers are against acreage allotments. "Most of them think it's necessary. However the farmer is anxious to guard his independence and to keep legislation regarding agriculture di- divoreed Irom polities' HS nearly as possible." Guesls at the. meeting included John Mahan.
