A mounted corn sheller proceeded to shell corn on the Hugh Herman farm, tenanted by Karl Taylor. The shelter was placed In such a position that the corn • could roll into the trough of the sheller with little exertion. The spout of the sheller delivered the shelled corn into Taylor's elevator and elevated the grain into a bin close by, while the husks were blown directly into a nearby shed, to be used for bedding. The cob carrier delivered the cobs lnto*an empty wagon near the water tank to be used for fuel to run the tank heater.- 2 Farm Sales Listed lit Paper Farm sales listed f«f the coming week follow: Thursday, De«. ttttfc—At 6.

OTT, Prepared by the Editor* of TIME The Weekly Newsmagazine LOVE AND HATE- DEATH OF MACDONAI.D LOSSIMOUTH. Scotland: Thret days out from Liverpool last week on the small British liner "lieim del Pacifico". slowly plowing its way south towards Bermuda and a South American cruise, most of the passengers were just finishing a hearty dinner. Too ill to cat his. however, was the "Reina's" most distinguished passenger, James Ramsey MacDonald. At 8:45 he quietly died of heart failure at the age of 71. Few men living have been more beloved by their friends or maligned by their acquaintances than Ramsey MacDon*ld. A sentimental Lowland Scot who loved to write sad verses for his friends, he was a founder of the British Labor Party, the first person to bring it to a position of importance in Bn'.ixh affairs, three times Prime Minister of Great Britain and un intimate personal friend of King George V. Yet "traitor" was a word hurled at him over and over throughout the last 20 years. Because he spoke out loudly against British entry in the World War in 1914 he was ostracized as a traitor to the nation for years. Because he felt it necessury to abandon the principles of the i/ld Labor Party in forming his coalition cabinet or "National Govern- ment" in 1931, Ramsey MacDonald was called a traitor by most of British organized labor. Failing eyesight-and mental depression broke his health. The Crown, anxious to honor him, offered him an earldom last May, but Scot MacDonald turned It down lest It crimp the political chances of his son Malcolm, who Is Secretary of State for the Dominions. Because doctors worried greatly over Scot MacDonald's increasing melancholia, he was sent on the "Reina del Paciflco" cruise with his youngest daughter, Sheila, for companion. With his body still at sea, the Britiab Government proffered him the honor of a Westminster Abbey burial This the MacDonald family politely refused. For years Ramsey MacDonald had hoped to be buried In his beloved Losslmouth, beside his still more beloved wife, Margaret Ethel, who died in 1911. "In Lossiemouth arc both my licaVl and my hearth, said he. "A Lossie loon (boy) was 1 born, and a Lossie loon shall 1 die." - f\ — NO S-O-8: GREEK TRAGEDY— MOREHEAD, North Carolina: Outward-bound to Rotterdam with a treacherous cargo of scrap-iron last week, the 5,815-ton Greek freighter "Tzenny Chandrts" had barely cleared the port of Merehead City, when In the lash of a Whining nor'easter she sprang a leak. After a three-day battle against heavy seas that left her in bad shape off Cape Hatteras, her frightened crew of 28 begged Captain George Coufo- pandelis to flash an S. O. S. to one of the several vessels which passed by. But he ordered them back to the falling pumps, confident the old freighter, bought from th« U. S. Maritime Commission, would ride out the storm. As their plight grew worse. Third Engineer Bortas Balaskas slipped into the radio room at 4:15 a. m. stood over the operator with drawn knife, commanded him to break the captain's orders anAsend ajcall for help. It was too late. Dislodged as the gale tossed the ship, the "Tzen- ny Chandrls' " cargOfShlfted. She listed craKlly, water rose In the hold, the pumps ceased as the freighter foundered. All hands s6ramb»ed excitedly off Into the dark, cold water. Thirty-two terrible hours later Commander Henry Coyle's Coast Guard cutter "Mendota" picked up the last of the 81 survivors who clung to bobbing bltt of debris. Captain Coufopandells bore_a, painful gash on the bridge" of his nose, the bite of a sailor who shared the captain's improvised raft and went mad from drinking salt water. The others, six of whom were saved by the C. D. Mallory tanker "Swift- sure", told a gruesome tale: the sea had suddenly become alive with sharks. Helpless comrades could only look on as, the man-eaters tore the bodies of two seamen to bits, pulled a third through his life belt. Churning the water with their feet, as the sharks slashed at them, the other terror-stricken sailors drove off their tormentors. Finally Lieut. A. C. Keller spotted the survivors from his naval plane, dropped smoke bombs and plunged down in dangerous power dives. which frightened off the sharks lonsr enough for the "Mendota" to reach the scene, pull the exhausted mariners from the water 40 miles from the grave of the luckless "Tzenny Chandris." ing to be the nephew of a rich Pac- We coast gangster, the agent caned on Chin and they became fast friends. Vflhen the agent went East to buy opium for his "uncle", he had a warm letter of introduction from Chin to tongman Jimmy Wong, was introduced to Treasurer Ko Wing Chuck of the Hip Sing Tong. The agent bought a generous s«p« ply of opium, then went to Chicago where Tong men were so entranced with his personality and appetite for opium that, when he capped his friendly gestures by presenting them with a wad of tickets to the Braddock-Louls prize fight, they Initiated him Into the Chicago branch of the Tong. He brought along a fellow agent, had him initiated also. By this time, the agent was also expressing an Interest in heroin and morphine, which the Tong members were able to supply through a group of white friends Who apparently had a reciprocal treaty for opium trading with the Tong. Not until the agents had spent $10,000 and almost two years laying their plans did government officials give the signal to draw in the net last week. New York and Brooklyn provided the biggest haul—five Tong members, ten of their white friends, and one extraneous Chinese. In Chicago two. more were arrested, In Pittsburgh one, in San Francisco two—In Butte two—Chin Joo Hip and Chin Joo Hip, Jr. NUTS OR GENIUS?

TRAPPED TONG WASHINGTON: Simultaneously one night last week 60 agents of the Treasury Department's Narcotic Bureau conducted raids In Chicago, San Francisco, Butte, Pittsburg and New York, captured 23 persons suspected of using the Hip Sing Tong (American-Chinese secret organlz- 1 atton) aa the frame-work of a nation-wide naroctlcs ring doing $1,000,000 worth of business a year.
