Mr. Bennett said: "The end of the war did not bring a conclusion of our domestic and foreign problems. On the contrary they increased in intensity. We need but give a glance at any newspaper to realize the vast amount of varied thought in the minds of our citizens. Agriculture, business, labor and industry are confronted with obstacles that demand a firm progressive hand at the helm of our state ship. And that hand needs able, capable help in its endeavors. "Beiieveing that I have the necessary qualitications ot experience, educa.tion and fully capable of carrying out the duties of the otfice, 1 hereby announce my candidacy as you Congressman'of the 7th District. My main objective as your t Congressman will be : to try to.; get.-,the .Government out of everytJo'dy's misiness and to return to-the people tHe right lo run their own lives and map their own destinies. Head that sentence .again please! I, made a survey of the counties, sampling public opinion Irom every walk of life, before I definitely decided to make this race. Without exception every person I talked witn remarKecl that it is time for a change. The people I talked with were most encouraging and I came to the con-' elusion that I could carry an over- wnelming majority of the votes in the District. •"It seems to me that our Congressmen are scared of the pressure groups in Washington. Many have adopted a do-nommg, say- nothing attitude with an aim to displease no one and thus keep tnemseiviv: in ol'tice. It won't work: People read, listen to the radio ana discuss tne prooiems. congress doesn't give the voter credit for enougn urams. The people of tnis District won't be swayed by a lot of rumors, lies, slander and politics this summer. Perhaps the. healthiest tning that can happen to the country is for some of the gun-powder boys to be elected. ; They won't be frightened by a few, . selfish, vested interests. I "I lully realize tne wrath my ! announcement will bring down on i me from certain parties but this i is not a time to shirk a duty. No i man owes more to his State and i Nation than I do. Now is tne time j to come out in the open for the j right. Now as never before we must cling to the principles of the Constitution that American blood ! was spilt for. i "From now until election I shall • carry on an intensive speaking , campaign. It is my desire to acquaint the people of this District with my principles. At the same ; time I am exceedingly anxious ; to learn the desires of the folks 1 so that I can truly be a 'Represen- • tative' of the District. Furthermore when Congress is not in session ! I shall announce my availability , to the people in the various coun- ; ties so that we can confer on any i matter they desire to. You will ! be able to expect me at a certain ; place at a certain time, to talk of anything you care to, and that ; at least will be something new for the District. "The South needs new industry. Agriculture will steadily employ more mechanical means of farming and we must have industry to absorb the excess manpower that I will be upon us soon. I shall constantly be upon the u'iert for new industry and shall make every effort to make available the means for construction and repair of aiT roads in the District. I nave made a study of our rivers, creeks and flood control and will strive to develop a program to insure against disastrous overflows. Our infirm and aged must be cared for in a manner that is at least human and grateful. Our farm products must have a broader market cre- t atcd. A solid bases must be pro• vided to keep the price of cotton I at a level it deserves. Our foreign ] markets must be expanded. There is a happy medium somewhere between labor and capital. Lets find it! For a long time we have enjoyed a false prosperity which was kept alive by federal spending and pump-priming. There is a saturation point somewhere down the line and sometime soon the taxpayers will be unable to continue paying high taxes. Production and education is the answer to our problems. I deplore greed and we especially need lumber! equipment." "We hope to do more than just rebuild Greece. We want to build it better than it was." Doxiadis thinks Greece will have to lean heavily on American engineering companies. He likes them because in the past they have trained thousands of Greek technicians during construction jobs here. He himself was advisor to the Greek UNO delegation at San Francisco and learned English by giving 68 lectures and 48 radio broadcasts in 60 days there. 1 -?

Chou told a press conference. "Only when these are effected will Allied help be beneficial. Otherwise, careless assistance x x will rouse the Chinese people and | increase disorders. We Chinese people and we Communists don't want such help." Associates said Chou referred particularly to a huge United States loan the Chiang Kai-shek government is negotiating-with the assistance of Marshall. Truman's special envoy to China who currently is in Washington. • Chou charged that the Chinese! government was seeking to make Manchuria a grcnt garrision with more than half a million troops. He said that was in violation of the spirit of the recent political unification agreement. Government spokesmen have asserted that it does not. He said his party would not participate in reorganization of the Chinese government — on an all- party basis — unless the Kuomin- tang agreed to abide by decisions of the recent political unity conference and ceased atempts to put Manchuria outside the control of those agreements. Marshall helped effect the pact. Chou also renewed a Communist that the United States cease transporting government trops into Manchuria.

"JES 1 HOL' IT NATCIIEL, SONNY!"- "DISCOVERING" UNCLE NATCHEL » One day bade in 1934, an artist, driving leisurely along a country road in the deep South, heard the sound of banjo music floating toward him through tho trees. lie left his ear and followed the sad-sweet strains until he found a clearing in the forest where, on a little cabin porch, sat an old darky, a red-headed boy of twelve, and a dog—in the middle of a music lesson! All unseen, the artist set up his easel and soon, upon tho canvas, appeared the boy, all thumbs, his face screwed up in earnest effort, manfully struggling with the stringed instrument; the dog looking on in painful apprehension; the old man patiently urging: "Jcs" hoi' it natchel, Sonny—thataway, natchel!" This beautiful painting by Hy Hintermeister was featured on the 1935 Uncle Natchel calendar, and introduced to a million people the familiar figure of "Uncle Natchel", the kindly old man who has appeared ever since as the symbol of Natural Chilean Nitrate of Soda. Uncle Natchel is really a rare and lovable character. Grown old in the employ of Sonny's family, he is known to everyone for miles around for his inexhaustible supply of stories about the wonders of Nature and his belief that the be-st way to do anything is the "Natchel" way. And that, of course, is how he got his name.

Plenty seemed to be wrong, so far as the majority of women were' concerned. But four wives out of every hundred declared their men laultless, and another 8 per cent refused to discuss their husbands shortcomings. It's a safe bet those two groups of women have the .happiest homes. Not because their men are necessarily easier to live with or really better husbands—but because the wives aren't willing to pick them lo pieces on the sliuht- cst provocation. In one large and happy family there is a strict rule thai no 'two or more members can dlucuss the personality of any other member, a such a discussion starts, the lather says firmly, "L.N.D O C " which 'they all know stands'. for 'Let s not discuss our children." And it would be well. if wives would impose the same kind 1 ',of silence on -themselves '•when' it comes to their husbands' realtor imagined faults. ' • LOYALTY ESSENTIAL "Let's not discuss our nusbands" would be a fine rule for all wives to adopt. For loyally is aboul as worthwhile -a virtue as a marriage partner can have. And cerlainly a real lack of il is .revealed when I a husband or wife discusses the "faults of his spouse. I As a rule, iius'oands are far more loyal than are wive. A man may find his wife hard lo live with, but rarely does he talk about her shortcomings with his friends. Yet it is a common thing for all of a woman's friends to know just what is wrong wilh her husband. Discussing the tanks of marital partners is a.favorite feminine pastime. And lhe more they find fault, the more dissatisfied women become. So L.N.D.O.H. — not even. for a Gallup poll.

O'BRIEN Written for NEA Service Nosebleed (opislnxis) usually originates in n small spot on the Bide of the nose's septum, which .separates the nostrils. The blood vessels In this area are arraii"ed In a network near the surfnce, and thus are more liable to injury. An occasional nosebleed is' not significant, but. repealed hemorrhages, or those which arc difficult to Klop, require the attention of a physician. Simple nosebleed, which starts without special cause, should be allowed to continue until it slops. A pan can be held under the chin and the blood allowed to drop from the nose to prevent it from trickling down the throat. Ice or cold compresses C4in be applied to the outside of the nose or to the back of the neck, but as a general rule it is not advisable to put anylhlng in Ihc nose to control the bleeding. HOME REMEDIES HELP Various home remedies, such as putting a key on the neck or inserting a piece of brown paper between the upper lip and gum, probably do not have a direct effect on nosebleeds, but they have the virtue of permitting the blood to clot without .inter- lercnce. .For severe hemorrhages, a physician should be consulted He may remove the clot to locate the bleeding point. 'Application of a medicine to constrict the blood vessels svill control the hemorrhage, especially if vaseline gauze strips are later packed in the nose. If the bleeding is farther back, a plug can be brought forward through the throat/ . Persons who suffer with persistent nosebleeds are aided most when the bleeding spot is cauterized with a chemical. As a rule permanent relief follows, although electric cauterization may be necessary if chemicals fail. • .It is not wise for the patient or us friends to pul any chemical »JPw the nose to st °P bleeding. MAY FOLLOW INJURY Nosebleed may follow injuries or operations, both of which also complicate high blood pressure and hardening of the arteries. The bleeding point in high blood pressure may be difficult to locate and control, and, in excessive hemorrhage, a transfusion may be necessary. In spite of all precautions, blced- 4ng may develop as late as five to seven days after an operation on Ihenpse. When this occurs, the County Agent Notes Now is the time'for a spring treatment of peach trees for control of peachtrce borers with pnra- dichlorobezene if no fall treatment was given. Spring fumigation will greatly reduce infestation, but wiP not take the place of fall treatment. The pcachlrce borer feeds beneath the bark at ground level. Masses of gum at ground level are signs of borers. If not already started, by all means start chicks-in April-for fall egg production. Present toll out- loon is extremeJy good for eggs.

Patterson told senators today the present "world emergency" will last through 1047 and urged a year's extension of selective service be yond May 15. His appeal was backed up by secretary ol navy James V. Forrestal who told the Senate military committee "we cannot be unmindful of the facts that the world is not at peace. The committee is hearing final arguments for extension of the draft before voting on the question next Tuesday. On the other side of the capitol, the House Military group called in opponents of conscription to teslify prior lo voting Friday. Patterson presented huge charts listing both current "responsibilities" of the army and "assumptions ' for the period ufitil January 1, 1U48, and asserted the only way the army can obtain needed manpower is through a one-year extension- of Ihe drafl . Both Forrestal and Patlerson said Ihey much preferred volunteer forces. The navy secretary said his department expected to attain ?n°,f™n r u slrength o£ approximately SOO.OOO through volunteers b.ut added no one could be certain of this unless selective service is extended. •Patterson asserted that unless the draft law is renewed the army will have a steadily increasing deficit from October 1940 which we will never be able to make up." Questioned by Senator O'Mahoney (D-Wyo) Patterson said that army deficits will begin in October because men who volunteered for a year will start gelling out Patterson also reiterated that the army wants lo limit service of inductees to 18 mpnths and is willing to release fathers already inducted and forego drafting others if Congress requests such action. On the other hand, the American -Federation of Labor contended before the House group that further extension of Ihe draft would be' "un-American", and in no event should the extension be longer than three months.

She didn t really intend to listen but Nina's voice suddenly was raised sharply, and she couldn't avoid hearing.

Ann hurried into the bedroom and shut the door Mie sat down in front of the dressing table, and looked in the mirror. "Poor Colin," she murmured involuntarily. Poor, dear Colin, destined by fate to listen f°i, e woman J °c^ had hurt.

She felt lhal only loyally lo Colin would be a strong enough defense for her, against Jock She knew that by the way her heart still turned over al a sudden glimpse of Jock (To Be Continued) the cucumber pickle project. "The land was first broken about April 16, and it was prepared by laying or streaking off the rows about 7 feet apart with a Georgia stock with 2 shovel plows on it. I put 80 sacks of 5-10-5 fertilizer out on the 10 acres by hand and threw 4 light furrows on the fertilizer The rows were knocked off and planted with a corn planter. The corn planter had in it a plate with two holes. The seed was placed so that the hills would be aboul 2 or 2 1 /. feet apart in the drill. I had to plant over aboul May 1 because of excessive rains. Whe nthe plants began to bunch to run, I side dressed by using'20 sacks of 8-8-8 fertilizer on the 10 acres, and later on I used 10 sacks of Nitrate of Soda. I believe the side dressing should be done by using 8-8-8 fertilizer when the plants begin to run, ana side dress again in two weeks, and two weeks later until three applications have been used. I can recommend the cucumber pickle crop to farmers as bein" a good cash crop with guaranteed prices if they will use plenty of fertilizer, cultivate properly and pick closely."
