The pro-government Jih Pao said vanguards reached Pulanlicn, only ;« miles north of .Oaircn on ihe border between 'Manchuria and Kwangtung peninsula.

Mr. McClellan recognized tho material progress made in Arkansas and predicted lhal if our country's leaders cculd fulfill tho heavy responsibilities now placed upon therfi that we would have an era of peacetime prosperity for many years to come. "During the war," said Mr. Mc- Clcllan, "our 'job;rwas comparatively easy. We were all behind the common effort to win the war.

When the lights went on, Fox shouted excitedly: "Did anybody else sec the cover of that book wiggle?" Nobody had. Even Frank Amand, a close friend of Houdini and an escape artist himself, had to admit that it was "just a i'licker of light." The magicians had been hopeful of, success even though the late Mrs. Beatrice Houdini had tried unsuccessfully for years to get through to her famous husband. Just before the ceremony, Jayne Cole, a Lansing, Mich., mentalisl who appeared-on the same vaudeville bills with Houdini, sent a telegram warning the magiciens to "be prepared for some manifestation between 12:13 and 12:39 a.m." The magicians lingered in 'the hotel room until after ihe 12:39 deadline and then filed out slowly. on retail prices — the prices which you, the consumer, pay — is a lot tougher.
