Crop Your 1963 Tree May Be Home Grown Most farmers plant, seed in the spring, baby it all summer and harvest their grown crop in the fall. Gale Sledge of Bonnie plants in the spring, too. And he harvests in the fall, eight or nine years later. Sledge is a Christmas tree farmer, and he is harvesting his 1963 crop on an 18-acre plot on his SO-ncre farm in Spring Garden township, east of Bonnie. He has about 25,000 trees on the farm and the "harvest" this year will be approximately 3,000 trees. Where did your Ch istmas tree come from this \ ar? It may be it came from Gale Sledge's for the Mt. Vernon Optimist Club purchased 600 trees from him for re-sale here at their Tenth street lot. Sledge sells Christmas trees on both a wholesale and retail basis. Trees from his farm are being sold now in Mt. Vernon, Florida, and several Illinois cities. Periodic pruning and good care has resulted in a big crop of well-shaped Christmas trees at the Sledge farm. Christmas tree farming has become a new industry in southern Illinois and the Sledge farm is one reason why Jefferson county is among the leaders. Story telling is a highly developed skill in Moslem countries where religion forbids the portrayal of human and animal likenesses in art. An hour of farm labor today produces more than five times as much food and other crops as it did in the period of 19191921. STAN THE TIRE MAN OFFERS YOU THIS SNOW SPECIAL . . .

Break Would Make Cambodian Prince Happy PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) — Cimlxxlia's chief of state, Prince Norodom Siha­ nouk, said today he "would be happy to break diplomatic reunions witli the United States." Sihanouk said that U.S. Ambassador Philip D. Sprouse had delivered a protest to his government thai was a "thinly disguised threat to break relations." "Let us then hope for an early break in relations bet veen the United States and us," Siha­ nouk declared in a speech in the province of Takeo. "Then all the United States can do is to threaten to make war on us and to send us their famous Polaris bombs (sic) if, however, they do not fear being killed by ridicule." In Washington, the State De- partmcnt denied Thursday that Sprouse had delivered a protest. It said he had requested clarification of the language used in a broadcast by the Cambodian government radio station Dec. 9 which U.S. officials interpreted as derogatory to President Kennedy. U.S. monitors reported the broadcast ordered celebrations because of (he deaths of South! Viet Nam President Ngo Dinh i Diem. Thailand's Premier Saril • Thanarat and "the great boss of iliese aggressors." Officials in Washington look the latter term as a reference 10 President Kennedy. The Cambodian government press service denied Thursday that any such celebration had been o r d e r o d for Kennedy'se (io.tlh and said he had the "unanimous respect of all Cambodians." The Prince said today Sprouso's protest had caused him to recall Ambassador Nong Kimmy from Washington. Relations between Cambodia and the United States have deteriorated steadily in recent months because of Sihanouk's contention that the Unit e d Stutes and South Viet Nam are arming and supporting Cambodian rebels seeking Sihanouk's overthrow. The United Stales | has denied the charge repeated-> >y- I Sihanouk on Nov. 19 re- i nounced all further U.S. economic and military aid. The Prince has shown more and more affinity for Communist China.

The cranking sounds of noisemakers cut llirounh the shouts of the crowd of 70 ,000. .lininiy Greaves bad scored for the Tottenham Hotspurs. Any fan of the New York Mels would have felt right ai home, although the Hotspurs more closely resemble the New York Yankees in the field of English soccer.
