What these dehydration plants will mean to farmers in ihis region is easily seen when a study is made of the cost, of iced to Southwest Arkansas and Northeast Texas farmers is made.

At the same time, Davidson held these two opponents to a combined net total of three yards, an average of a yard and a half per game. Thus, on two lop-sided 'oerform- ances, Davidson leads the hation jn tolal offense, total defense, i-ushing offense and rushing defense. Meanwhile, a Texas team which was voted the best in the land in the first Associated Press poll of the season has traveled tarther than any of them — 1,471 yards in three games.

XV For Gayle that evening was'per- fect; and it Bart found it any way less than ideal, he gave no sign. They talked with Mr. and Mrs. Kent for an hour after dinner, and then went for a long walk. Thc next morning Bart came down to breakfast as Gayle had instructed him to do. "We can't expect poor Belle to lug meals upstairs," she explained. "I wouldn't think of asking her to." "Oh, I'll come down," he agreed al once. "I never cal breakfasl in bed in New York — well almosl never. I ought to, though, .iust to give Higgins something to do. He's a lazy cuss. I'll be glad to give up the apartment and let him go." Mr. Kent hurried his meal got lo meet Jimmie," he said by way oC explanation lo Bart. "I telephoned, and the train's on lime." "Couldn'l we go along?" Earl asked Gayle. "Would you like lo?" "You bet." Mrs. Kent smiled with gratification. There was something so heartwarming about almost everything Bart did, a friendliness and a boyish eagerness thai were irrcsisl- iblc. Jimmie was equally enlhusiaslic aboul him when once Ihey had met. Less than a year oul of college, Jimmie slill had a good deal of the undergraduate's point of view, and he-felt that it was something pretty super for his sister to marry the great Bartlctt of Yale. Yes, Bruce Barllell was something pretty extra special. Jimmie was a highly sensitive young man, however, and Bart could have shaltored the admiration wilh one false move; but his every move was right. He held oul his big hand, smiled broadly, and said, "Hi, Jimmie, I've been wanting to meet you for a darned long lime." "Nol as long as I've been wanting lo mccl you, I'll bcl," said Jimmie. "Nalc used to talk aboul you when I was a liltl ckid." "Did he?" Bart's smile grew broader. "Well, he talked about you, too; so it's fifty - fifty," Half an hour later they were arguing football, and by the middle of the morning they were buddies. the New York and Philadelphia papers gave.

Come to think oC ii she had mentioned it to Bart once He must have told Mrs. Bartlett and she in turn had told Miss Ho) land, Gayle thought admiringly certainly knew her business. She sighed.

To Gaylcs secret amusement girls refused to home lorig after was time to go. They ottered no pretexts; they simply stayed, and she knew why they were staying. One and all, they wanted to meet Bart — not "Black Bart", the famous Yale football plaryc but Bruce Van Dyke Bartlctt, the handsome son ot the great multimillionaire Van Dyke Bartlctt. And while the girjs waited, the men sat in a bar drinking beer and enjoying themselves waiting, as Jimmie put it for those fcmmcs to fc'cl the heck out of there. Most of them, however, stuck il out until Bart appeared, and then they made a fuss over him that reduced all the Kcnls to an agony of cmbaraf!- sment. But if Bsrt was disturbed, lie successfully hid even the Jaint cst resentment or confusion .

S Army officer revealed today, bu lone of the condemned Nazis ha shown any sign of collapse. Thc army lifted a corner of th curtain of secrecy over Ihc Nucrn- icrg prison where the Nazi war criminals were waiting out their asl cighl days. The glimpse inside he ''death row" showed some o.f :hem jittery and distraught, but all cooping themselves under control. On orders from Berlin prison officials began a series of two daily srcss conferences. The first dealt largely with dispelling loose rumors, and giving fragments of in- 'qrmalion on the prisoners. Maj. Frederick Tcich of Ncwin.tj- on, Conn., officer of the Internal Security Detachment since the war crimes trial began, presided at the firsl conference. He was flanked y public relations officers. Taking up a sheaf oC questions, lie disposed of the bulk of them with negatives. No details of the executions were available. Ho did not know who tlio hangman would be. Master Sgt. John C. Woods, a likely candidate, is nol listed al present on the prison staff. No apparatus for the executions in the prison. Physical preparations have nol ycl begun. Disclosing for the first time thai there had been no breakdowns or collapses among the condemned men, Teich said Goering after a spell of broodjng came to a decision to. got the pictures of his wife and daughter out of his cell. He put them in an envelope and sent them to his lawyer. Then he blubbered like a small boy from whose hand a treasure has been .snatched . But Goering maintained his poise throughout his last meeting with his wife yesterday, Teich said. Frau Goering look advantage of a revision in rules permitting the wives of the condemned one more visit with them. Ol all the convicted men, Goering generally retained the mosl dignity, the officer reuorted. 1U> was followed closely bv Konslan- tin Von Neurath and Wilhclm Keit- cl, the latter never losing his pn cise military poise. Grand Admiral Krich Hacder, who asked that his life imprisonment sentence be changed to death before a firing squad, was reported lo be the most despondent of tin prisoners, and Rudolf Hess th< most indifferent. rpering hurried through the door of room 57 in the Nuernberg court- louse. Gocring's lawyer said that as frau Goering was hurrying here from Ncuhaus in South Bavaria he former Reichsmarshal was in such a mood thai he could joke ,vith his guard. The lawyer said lhal whc» Goer ing was being taken handcuffec clown a corridor, he broke into a trot, calling as a joke to the guard "I can beat you even though I am handcuffed." Hjalmar Schachl left Nuernberg this morning. The first of the three acquillcd defendants to depart, he was reported to have gone to Ihe home of a friend near Stuttgart. • Hans Frilzsche got his German ration card. He was reported preparing to go to Pleisseberg, near Augsburg. Grand Admiral Erich Raecler, former German naval chief of staff, has appealed to the Allied control council requesting that lie be shot rather than serve Ihc life sentence handed him by the inter- nalional Iribunal. Racder's attorneys said Racd- er's appeal stated he considered death before the firing squad a •'lighler sentence" than imprisonment. He is 70 years old. The Allied council can only lighten sentences, nol increase them. Hans Frilzsche and Franz Von Papon, the other Iwo men ac- quillcd by Ihe international tribunal, remained in Nuernberg. Von Papcn spent his sixth night as a free man in the prison, and Fritzsche was with his attorney. Military government officials said Schachl signed a paper yes- lerclay that he would appear before a German courl. He believed the Nuernberg court was prejudiced, however, and desired 10 appear in Slullgarl instead. Just where he will be tried was certain. —_—_ 0 topped will the bowl speculation C quieted.

He has a former All-America end in Hubert Bcchlol, and a big, i'asl line. It's a typical Bible team, playing with precision and teamwork and no temperament. Bible was chosen in 1937 to replace Jack Cheyigny partly because of . his ability as bvvomat, coordinator and administrator, and he handles his teams with a maximum of all three. Bible, son of a professor of .Greek and Latin, starred in football,' baseball and basketball at Carso^-Newman college, then started coaching at Brandon prep school in his native Tennessee in 1912. He went to Mississippi college in 1913, lo Louisiana otate in i9l6, and was at Texas A. & M. Irom 1917-1928. Then came his eight-year tenure ai Nebraska. At each college his record was a winning one, and he has won 204 games in the 34 years. One of nis toughest games of the season comes up Saturday, against a strong tradilional rival, Oklahoma.

S. Chamber of Commerce says. Production, it estimated in a recent report, will far outstrip in l!H(i that of 1941 — 1,603,000,000 barrels compared with 1,402,000,000 in 1941. Coal production was running nbout 1,000,000 tons a week ahead of that in 1945, the chamber said, out it was expected to fall short of last year's 576,000,000 tons by be tween 30,000,000 and 35,000,000. However, the Chamber estimated, it will exceed the 1941 output of 114,00,000 tons. "Iron ore presents the saddest picture with an estimated 191G production of scarcely half thai of 1941," the Chamber said. "The reason — strike upon .strike. Production, February to May inclusive, was only a third of the 1945 production during the same period." Estimating that the copper, lead and zinc production this year will be 5G7.000 tons, 353,000 tons and 5f!3,000 tons, respectively, compared with 006,000; 401,000 and (W5.000 in 1911, the Chamber said the decrease may be attributed to lack of development work durin;, the war, price uncertainties anc labor difficulties. "The year's production by tural resource industries Sins been influenced by such other factors as government war plain sale, slock pile and developing foreign poll cy." the Chamber said. —o— President Chester A.
