In fact, the survey'll do it for you and let you know Flow it's going— it claims ability now to predict tides 10 years in advance "if necessary" —because it does some careful checking on the ocean level at least once a year.

Key to the vast project which will cost $15,000,000 is the St. Marv River dam near Spring Coulee, a'- bout 30 miles southwest of Leth- bridgc.

The St. Mary-Milk rivers project, now under way, will bring total irrigated land in southern Alberta to about 700,000 acres. Settled water supplies will prevail on a rolling plain extending about 100 miles eastward to the Saskatchewan boundary, an area which seldom receives enough rainfall to assure heavy yields 'and which often has suffered complete crop failures. The dry land to be irrigated now supports three or four persons a square mije. Irrigation will support about 80 persons a. square mile. Value of production from an acre of irrigated land sown to specialized crops is several times that from dry land wheat crop, farmers on irrigated land will raise beet crops worth $125 to $225 an acre and vegetable canning crops worth $120 to $3(JO an acre. To dale the area has been used principally for livestock production, wheat and some rye. o Food Tax Lifted From Poles Warsaw—(AP)—The Polish peasant farmer, who for more than a year after Poland's liberation paid his taxes "in kind," by supplying provisions and foodstuffs, now pays his levies in cash.

Renny Rodent Marco Polo Among Rats AP Newsfeatures Nankirig--Rcnny the Rodent was n Mai co Polo among rats, covering more territory than most of his sea-going brethren. In fact, he could sneer at all the maritime rats, because Renny flew in a C-47, traveling farther in an hour than they did m a day. LI. Col Otto Honey of Springfield, Mo., U. S. Air Attache, figures the air-minded adventurer flew with him more than 50,000 miles before death—as it must to all rats—came to Renny. At first Haney and the crew were tolerant after Henney stowed away at Chungking. He scuttled about the plane, feasting famously on Army 10-in-l rations to which he showed a partiality not shared by his superiors who got around on two legs. Then they happened to think: What if Renny should foul the control cables or dine his way into the electric cables, a meal that well might prove fatal to him as well as all hands aboard? So Haney and the crew began a war of extermination. They took all food out of the plane, but Renny had foraged too well to starve out in a hurry. They put on oxygen masks and .took the C-47 aloft,'trying to kill I Renny with altitude. Renny either relished thin air or found his own mask, for he returned hale as ever. There may be some who, perforce having eaten army field rations, may doub). the temptation that proved Renny's undoing, but it's true. Haney baited a trap with an army cracker. Next day Renny was dead. Clovr Blamed for Sexless Sheep Melbourne—'(AP)—A new disease which affects the fertility of sheep is threatening the reproduction of flocks in Western Austrulin and parts of South Australia and Victoria. An Australian Government research officer, disclosing the presence of the disease, said it was thought originally it was associated with an early type of clover ftnown as dwalganup, but now there was some suggestion that later clovers such as Ml. Barker and Tallarook were involved. The officer said the clovers seemed to contain substances closely allied to oestrogen, a female hormone and similar to sliJbocslrOl, a manufactured chemical used in human therapeutics and betinary work. The substances, he declared, seemed to upset the ductless glands system of animals and affected the breeding organs of eweii.

The milk is said to taste better than pasteurized milk, an American Chemical Society magazine reports, and sterilization is complete for three days. The idea has been studied before, but an Italian chemical company in Milan, Italy, apparently solved the problems of producing hydrogen peroxide that is high enough in purity, stability and concentration to be used in milk. American investigators are studv- ing the treatment. Containers for the peroxide - treated-milk have to be made of tinned iron, aluminum, glass, or clay products since the peroxide is reactive to iron, cof- per, lead, and alkalies. o A Plumber Plumb Forgotten I Yakima, Wash.—(AP)—G.

Nuns Take Long Study of Cancer AP Newsfeatures Dululh, Minn. — Two, white-robed young Catholic nuns, Sister Potra Lenta and Sister Agatha Riehl. of the Order of Saint Benedict, arc. at work on a long-term cancer studx. , They teach school for half days from Monday to Friday, inclusive, at the College of Saint Schol- aslica, and then spend the rest of each day, and all day Saturdays, in a new cancer laboratory fitted out by the college. They work with living cancer tissues, both human and mouse. With these malignant tissues, in test tubes, the sisters study a little- known phase of cancer metabolism. This is the production of hydrogen by the tissues, Hydrogen release in small amounts, is a normal event In all living tissues. It is one of the steps by which living things absorb part of their energy from food. Malignant growths in some cases may differ from normal in hydro:en release. But whether the hy- rogen production is the same or different, the facts are important for .those who seek to understand and cure the disease. This study is part of a cooperative work directed by the Institu- tum Divl Thomae, in Cincinnati, under Dr. George Sperti. The work is of the sort that cancer experts have been urging for years. No time is set for the finish. o Farmer of Tom°rrow Big Shot Philadelphia—(AP)—The farmer is on the verge of becoming a bij* business man, in the opinion 01 Charles W.
