British farmers have never Rone In much for the cultivation of the ominous onion. 50 nprp.ssary Tor WBStminR. In happier and more peaceful years Industrious Frenchmen came over with great strings of onions and found a ready and profitable market. The war has stopped all that, and Britain is running short of onions. They are a rarity in many towns. They command fancy, even fabulous prices. Scarcity of onions has brought about a "black market" In London. Just as American police raid bootleggers' haunts, so London police have gone after the llleRal dealers in vegetables. Britain is go- Ing to try to stop onionlegging. Crash Wtather The recent airplane crashes suggest the possibility that crash weather is here. One fact, however, stands out as hopeful: The pilot of one of the planes survived the crash and may be able to tell what happened. In many caaej, investigation has shown that .the trouble is generally with the pilot and not the engine. Survival In this latest instance should make the investigation much easier.

Note m Grace Wilson Coming To Sterling Nov. 11 with National Born Dance After touring the country with theatrical companies since she was a baby, Grace Wilson, the contralto, featured on several WLS programs during the week, has found genuine happiness in her work because she can live at home, care for the home and be a real home body. Trouping, as far a* Grace \.'ilson i-s concerned, is practically a thing of the past and her personal appearance tours are few and Jar between. However, she does occasionally respond to insistent demand, as she is doing on Nov. 11 when she appears a.s a special feature at the National barn dance at the Sterling coliseum. ^0 K;ithrr. 31 MuMf.i! .12 f;arlic. .13 Calcium 35 .Tfi 37 ne'e.

It California's first glimpse of Collect $1,899.60 in Fines Lost Six Months A'total of $1.899.60 In fines have been collected by the .justices of the peace and in the cafeteria court during the last .six months, according to reports turned into the city of Sterling. Fines collected by each of three justices are: H. J. Folkers. $621.60; O. P. Castendyclt, $532; I people Idol-worship eomeone she Harvey Senneff, $136. The receipts j kne,w as intimately as Pete Laird, of the cafeteria court were $610. 'They had met three yecrx ago at and roared approval as State's blue- jersied squad came prancing out of was the moat publicized football team in the country, a team that had flown almost 3000 miles to open its season on the coast. Big. supple, confident, u they jogged up and down the field — kicking, passing, loosening up. A buzz of anticipation filled the stands. The tall blond girl who *at in a 50-yard line neat behind State's bench was aware that one name seemed to be on everyone's lips. "Which one's Laird?" "Watch him throw that ball!" "Look at that stride!" "That's Laird—number 52." The tall blond girl sat on the edge of her seat and clenched her hands. Her eyes never left that big "52" in the center of the field. They were lovely eyes — a deep blue, honest, intelligent. Her name was Anne Humphreys. It seemed incongruous to Anne Humphreys to sit there and hear introduced them. , She remembered how this tall, bashful boy from a West Virginia mining town hud blushed and struggled for words. They had fallen in love even before she watched him develop into one of 'the -.nation's leading football stars. With fame had come iwise and confidence and a knack for .shaking off admirers •as shruggingly as if they were would-be football tacklers. George Landers, square-jawed and blunt, had moved along, too. His stocky, compact frame made him a blocking man-el. Few people realized his value, although State's squad thanked him the only way It could. By electing him captain. tho igh's wer* 1 broken by the thtid of a bass drum The crowd ro^e again am! chouted. California had kicked ofT. and the game was underway.

Anne saw the devastating State blocking mow down California defenders. saw Lander* chop idown the last man and Laird bolt i into the open for a touchdown. She felt like running down on the field and throwing her firms around him. Before the half had ended. Anne was almost numb Late in ithe first quarter. Pete Laird, with the accuracy of a baseball pitcher, whipped a 30-yard touch-down jl>aiw. to Landers in the end zonn. j Five minutes later he plowed ) through a wide gap in California's line, picked up his coterie of blockers and sped 75 yards unmolested. "Come down to the corner of the stands by the ratnp Just before the second half." Pete had begged Anne earlier that day. so while California's band formed letters on the field and California's cheer leaders leaped through their antics, she made her way through a restless crowd to a spot where she could call to Pete as the team returned to the fie!d. He • Jogged up the ramp slowly, looking for her. George just behind him. "Here, darling." ahe called, and Pete reached for her hand, smieeeed it hard. Anne began pinching herself in the second half. California tried a quick kick. Laird picked up the loose ball on his 10-yard line and was o« again. He dodged the diving California end, shook off one tackier, then another, sttff- armed-a-third; -Up-th*-inkidle-of the field he stormed, bowling right over the last man who bad a shot at him.
