Mr. Andrew Mitchell and two grandchildren and little Mar gar ei POLITICAL CAREERS NOW OPEN TO YOUTH DECLARES DIPLOMAT "Never was there a more opportune time than now for a young man to begin a political career," declares Meredith Nicholson, United States minister to Nicaragua, in a challenging article on "Politics: A Field for Young 1 Men" in The Rotarian Magazine. "The next decade is certain to be one of the most interesting and most important in history" in this field. "As to the choice of a party affiliation, that's your personal affair," the diplomat and author. 'I suggest, however, that it is not absolutely ncessary for you to enroll in the party of your grandfathers, or even of your wife's relations. Nor is it wholly wise to align yourself with a party which, at the moment, may seem invincible, in the belief that it can never lose." Young men in politics should do their own thinking, Mr. Nicholson insists, rather than sacrificing principles in order to "keep regular." A sense of humor, tolerance, personality, and the ability to listen will contribute to the success of those who aspire to political leadership. "If you are a snob," he warns, "boil the poison out of your system before you attend your first precinct meeting. "If I were counselling a serious young aspirant as to how to begin a political career, I should advise him first of all to make a study of some phase of government administration. And I should suggest a municipal or county unit as a good beginning. Here the abuses 'are often so, flagrant and the need so great that his education in politics cannot fail to proceed prosperously." The multiplication of the functions of government in recent years makes Anne Jarrell hnd a narrow escape recently. With his eyes upon a train vhich had just passed, he failed to notice a car which had been dropped nd followed the train at a little dis- ance, and suffered a badly demolished machine.

The scale of things is so vast that we can't turn engineering and construction jobs over to amateurs." "Alexander Hamilton was well launched on his extraordinary career at 22," he points out to those young men who may feel that their youth is against them. "John Randolph wae elected to the House of Representatives at 26, and became leader in the body. James Madison, one of the greatest of those who gave form and direction to our institutions, was marked for a distinguished career at 24. And Henry Clay, at 22, was a member of the Kentucky constitutional convention and was elected to the United States Senate before he had attained the legal age prescribed for that dignity.

WHEAT INSURANCE POLICIES ISSUED AS NON-ASSESSABLE Wheat crop insurance policies now eing issued to growers by the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation are non-assessable, according to informa- ;ion received by Dr. T. B. Symons, dean and director of the University of Maryland extension service. "The jrcmium a farmer pays when he ob- ains a crop insurance policy is the only cost of this 'all-risk' protection or his wheat crop," Dr. Symons said. 'There can be no additional charges n any contingency." Under the crop insurance plan, Dr. Symons explained, farmers pay premiums in wheat, or in its cash equivalent, into a joint reserve of the orporation, and in case of losses to he insured wheat crop, they arc re- mbursed from this reserve with wheat, or cash equivalent, to bring heir yields up to the insured amount, n case losses should exceed prom- urns paid in, there can be no as- essment on policy holders. The Fedral Crop Insurance Corporation has an authorized capital of $10'0,000,00 for the express purpose of safeguarding policy holders, and should n unusual situation arise in which he wheat reserve built up from prem- um payments is insufficient to meet nsured losses, this capital provides n additional reserve from whch in- cmnities to farmers may be paid, 'he cost of administering the wheat rop insurance program including the ost of storage of wheat reserves is eing borne by the Federal Crop In- urancc Corporation. Dr. Symons stated also that farmers who have applied for. wheat rop insurance, and who now plan to ced a smaller acreage, may pay on he basis of actual acreage to be lantcd, rather than on the acreage ndicatcd in their applications. Grow- rs may have received, or will rc- eive, notices of premiums due on he original acreage they specified, lowever, the county office can exe- ute a rider to their premium notice which makes it possible to pay prem- ums only on the actual acreage to e seeded. · o» HARMONY Mr. and Mrs. Towers Todd had as heir week-end guests Mr. and Mrs. Tack Ketchell, of Chester, Pa.; Mr. ind Mrs. Clarence Todd and friends, tf Newark, Del.; Mrs. Chambere, of Harmony; Mr. and Mrs. Bennett Todd daughter, Eleanor, of Newark, Del.; Mrs. Robert Lister, of Ridgely; rs.

A STITCH IN TIME "Approach of the days when sons nd daughters leave home for another car at school or at college is an ap- ropriate time to urge careful mouth xamination by the family dentist and lie correction of such defects as may e found," said Dr. Richard C. Leonrd, Chief, of the Division of Oral lygicnc, of the Maryland State De- artment of Health, in discussing the eed of regular dental examinations. "Minor dental troubles", he con- inucd, "may become major ones vithin the period of a school term or car. To insure that this does not ccur, every child who is to be away t school--and consequently away rom parental supervision and from he services of the family dentist-- hould go now for a check-up of his r her mouth condition. Possibly noth- ng will need attention. On the other land, a careful check-up may dis- lose trouble that is just starting, nd prompt treatment of thie may revent more extensive ailments ater. 'An unattended small cavity in a ooth today may be an aching, ab- cssed tooth a few months from now. t may flare up during semester uizzes or on the eve of the most im- ortant dance or foot-ball game. Here a where the old adage 'a stitch in ime saves nine' may be aptly applied. Tour visit to your family dentist may give the necessary assurance of a etter year away at school. Incidentally, after this visit to he dentist, make an appointment with him for the first holiday at home. This is giving the dentist a :hance to prevent mouth and tooth roubles for you."

Nearly all of the accidents occurred on clear days, on straight, Iry roads. No day of the week was ree from fatal accidents, with Saturday the highest with 7.

In In Memoriam loving memory of our dear daughter and granddaughter, Audrey llnora Cox, who was killed one year ago, September 17, 1937. Softly at night the stars arc gleaming, Upon a tiny grave, iVherc sleeping without dreaming Is the one we loved but could not save. One long sad year has passed Since our great sorrow fell; The shock that we received that day We still remember well. No stain was on her little heart; Sin had not entered there, And innocence slept sweetly on That dear sweet face so fair. She was too pure for this cruel earth, Too bright and sweet to stay, And so God's holy angel bore, Our dear little girl away. Deeply missed by her, Mother and Daddy, and Grandmother and Grandfather Smith. m o» RESOLUTIONS ON THE DEATH OF MRS. WILLIAM J.
