Fuel You Don'l Have To Worry About When you shovel our coal into your stove or furnace, you do not have to worry about what it will do. It will burn and give you a clean, hot fire, easily controlled and economical. That's because it's clean coal—all slate, stone and dirt has been removed. They are the real trouble makers in cheap coal. They cause clinker, excessive ash and dull, lifeless fires. • Get a supply of our clean coal before Christmas and avoid heating troubles during the holidays. F. S.

How good a driver are you? Can you answer questions on rules of the road correctly? Here is one: When you make a right turn from one street into another, should you turn from the lane nearest the right edge of the street? You should, but many persons drive in the middle of the street, and then make the right turn. , Drivers should get in the lane nearest the right edge of the street when making a right turn from one street into another; otherwise thera is danger of collision with cars in the right hand lane. Do you agree, and do you make your right turns correctly? •ftunBm'iau'ttuaatgaaat, <^fe^.. . •••-~~~?&.&l HOLEPROOF tfR * Active young women cheer for these Penny Wise Chiffons . . . chooie them for 'most anything from breakfast to date-time . because they're Holeproof quality . . . shadowless . . . and come in the highest fashion shades for only ...... tor4<krud—All<>Ui>i<Stt,,ct Wtight Duality doubly c»*8*d b» Good Ho ul .k«»p- 1 mo end m« U*lltr fabfici Telling Bureau.!

S. delegates aboard the Grace Liner 'flSantt Clara" played and communed am ong themselves. Pan-Americanism began on board as soon as the "San ta Clara" cleared Panama and head ed southward. Father John F. O'Hara, President of Notre Dame University, and tho chairman of the delegation's committee on Intellectual cooperation and moral disarmament repeatet his Sunday sermon in Spanish. John L. Lewis' daughter, Kathryn, made friends with Electrical Worker Dan Tracy of the A. F. of L. Cordell Hull, besides beating all comers in his first try at deck golf, communed long and often at the rail with Delegate Alf M. Landon. The life of the party, Mr. Landon played bridge seven hours at a stretch with Mexico's shaggy, shrewd Ambassador Francisco Castillo Najara. Submitting to an equatorial initiation by Neptune (Eugene P. Thomas of the National Foreign Trade Council), Mr. Landon was pronounced guilty of "high crimes and misdemeanors. Including Republicanism" splashed with flour paste and shaved wth a three-foot razor. He balked only at being thrown Into Neptune's swimming pool. Cordell Hull and his chiefs Good Neighbor Policy have notably softened Latin American distrust of the U. S., but the eve of Lima showed that they have by no means removed It. Well organized last week was opposition by the ABC powers (Argentina, Brazil, Chile) and other nations to confirming at Lima the proposals for a Little League of Nation* and Little World Court, which Colombia and the Dominican Republic introduced out of friendliness to the U. S. at Buenos Aires two years ago. And toward Franklin Rosevelt's program for Continental Solidarity against Fascism, Latin American response has been noncommittal and cautious. Cordell Hull will have to be equally cautious about defining the limits of the Good Neighbor Policy: there are bold Latin American spirits, who inspired by the absence of downright Dollar Diplomacy In the current U. S. attitude toipnrd expropriations in Mexico and Bolivia think the Good Neighbor is perhaps ripe to be plucked of all his property in their lands. Whether It Is performed by pacts or by a ring of Navy steel, what the U. S. hopes to accomplish at Lima is to show Itself so Good a Neighbor that 120,000,000 Latin Americana will eschew the ideas and products of neighbors which the Good Neighbor wants to keep out. On the eve of this attempt, currents and undercurrents and undercurrents showed the progress of the neighborly race• * * In Havana, Boas Fulgencio Batista announced the upshot of his last month's trip to the U. S.: a new U. S.-Cuba trade treaty, with concessions to Cuban sugar, tobacco, potatoes and rum in return for concessions to Louisiana rice and other products. • * * In Washington, Under Secretary of State Sumner Welles, who likes Latin American affairs despite his Inability to get Latin Americans to like him, has been working since May as chairman of an inter-departmental committee to think up things which the U. S. Government can do for Latin America. Last w*ek Mr. Welles reported to the President that 13 departments ami agencies had thought up $998,804 worth. Samples: Agriculture can spend $75,000 for a tropical Forest Experiment Station in Puerto Rico, Treasury, $27,714 to send a Coast Guard patrol boat and one cutter on a demonstration cruise; Library of Congress, $27,200 to show Latin Americans how to use and catalog their libraries, $10,000 to present their 20 Governments with photostats of "fundamental American documents"; Federal Communications Commission, advice on radio problems (free); National Emergency Council, two $45,000 propaganda films, one about Latin America for U. S. audiences, the other about the U. S. in Spanish and Portuguese. In the seesaw race between the U. S. and Germany for the Brazilian market, Germany was leading lust week. Score: Germany, $49. 823,075 or 22.16 per cent of Brazil's 1938 imports; the U. S., $47,993 221 or 21.29 per cent. In Mexico, President Lazaro Cardenas showed how little he cared for any U. S. property rights, last week grabbed! 7,830 acres (over 11 square miles) of pasturage owned by Mrs Lettie Welter of San Antonio Texas.
