WEDNESDAY, JUNE 9, 1954 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAOB ma Dilemma of a Farm Wife-How Much Can An Emperor Eat ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The homemade cookies and lemonade were all ready — But a Minnesota farm wife was worrying today about how much an African Emperor could eat or drink of them on a stop scheduled for just 20 minutes. And are he and his party going to like the treats? ' Mrs. Edwin Doty, who helps her husband farm in southern Minnesota made the preparations when Haile Selassie, ruler of Ethiopia, said he wanted to view a typical farm during his one-day visit to Minnesota. Mrs. 'Doty was hoping she had enough of her and her husband's favorite goodies—while looking askance at an official party listing enough persons to fill eight autos. The entourage was starting the day with religious devotions and breakfast here at Christ Lutheran Church, followed by a tour of St. Paul and Minneapolis. At the state capitol, Gov. C. Elmer Anderson was greeting the royal guests before the caravan departed for Rochester and a morning tour of the world-famed Mayo Clinic. Seven miles south of Rochester Comes the 11:50 a.m. to 12:10 p.m. stop at the Dotys. "Just Handy" "Oh, I guess we were picked just because we happened to be handy, right oxi Highway 63," said Mrs. Doty as she pondered last minute preparations for the regal visitor. She said she was being buoyed up somewhat by the fact a luncheon is slated at Austin only 55 minutes after the motorcade depart? from her home. "So they can't eat so very much and I ought to have enough of everything," she concluded. The Dotys, principally livestock farmers, were happy that the fields along the Emperor's path were green with sprouted corn. In Austin, Selassie will tour the Geo. A. Hormel Co. meat packing plant after being guest of that firm for luncheon. The caravan returns here for a 6 p.m. press j conference following tea the ruler will sip with President Clemens M. Granshou of St. Olaf College at Nortbiield. The Minnesota day ends with Selassie talking on Ethiopian farming as compared to American methods at a dinner on the University of Minnesota campus. The party emplanes tomorrow for Spokane Wash. Show Starts 7:00 p, m. Admission 15c & 35c At All Times WED & THURS. Double Feature MOWAID HUGHES ,r,,..,.

Stapp, a veteran of aviation medical research, rode a rocket-propelled sled designed to find out the effect upon fliers of bailing out at very high altitudes and supersonic speeds.
