Planting Delay Hurts Crops in South New. Orleans, 'May^ 15. —, (#>)•' — Southern ''farmers , -.are 'working overtime lo make, up for'planting delays, bat ,still are looking for the warm weather necessary to hasten the growth of their crops. U. S. weather : bureau officials said the : crops, set -back from one to six w'eeks by excessive rain and cold in the early spring,'were "still behind" because of continued cool which retards development. Planting is brisk. Cotton growers are getting along so well that their progress was cited as a chief factor in a price drop on the futures exchanges this week. There is little indication, however, that the government's goal of 23,100,000 acres in cotton will be closely approached. Private reporting services estimate the total of 20f)i!G,OpO to 21,493,000 —higher than previous guesses but still far short of the goal. No official predictions are made before the government's estimate'due "Aug..£. Last year cotton farmers planned lfi,H)0,000 acres -and 17,015.000 acres were .harvested with a yield of f!,040,000 bales. Night farming is the rule now' in many areas. This is an old custom in the Louisiana rice country where the tractors all have lights. The practice spread widely djring the war as a means of. overcoming the labor shortage. However, reports from over the south indicate night planting' is ' mots widespread now than ever before. Estimate of planting delays vary from a week to ten 'days in Alabama and Arkansas to two t^&six weeks in Texas. Major crop situations: in. southern states include: Arkansas— Cotton ^acreage expected to be about 1,950,000, about 250,000 higher than last year despite trend in western 'Arkansas away from cotton and "toward livestock and feed crops. Rice acreage expected to be 340,000, or 20,000 mure than last harvest. Specialists Discuss Food at Local Meet Miss Blanche Randolph, Food Conservation Specialist, and Marshall Heck, Meat Specialist, from the State Extension office in Littlt Hock met Wednesday with local leaders from 11 home demonstration clubs and home economics teachers from three schools, at the Hobos' Locker Plant, according to Miss Mary Dixon, county home do rnonstration agent." The meeting was "divided into morning and afternoon sessions so thai time would be available for questions. Mr. Heck talked on prep aration of meat before it is sent tc the locker plant and on locker stor age. Miss Randolph worked with the women on preparation af English peas and preparation of strawberries for deep freezing. She stressed the. importance of precookinp vegetables before they go into thi- fast freezing room at the plant. Vegetables, she said, must be given a fast freeze before they are stored In the freezer locker. Miss Dixon touched on the high points in cooking frozen'foods. o Possible Influenza Drug Found By HOWARD W. BLAKESLEE Associated .Press Science Edi- trtr '- . : '.-. . .Philadelphia May 15 — (IP)— A green and black soil hold that shows promise oi furnishing a drug remedy for influenza w'as announced to '.he • Society • of American Bactero- gists here today. •There are vaccines for flu, but •no drugs that specifically cure it. The mold shows some specific curative .effect on chicken embryos and mice with influenza. It has not been tried on humans. The report was made by Doctors A. . Liebman, D. Perlstein and G. A.. Snyder, of Schenley distillers Corporation, Larchmont. N Y The stuff that inhibits the virus (hat causes flu came from n bit of earth Just where the earth came from the authors of the report said they did not know. It was one of numerous samples of soil from all over the world. Since the pinicillin and the streptomycin'now used as drugs, came from soil, many laboratories, searching for new wonder drugs. routinely have samples of dirt sent them from all parts of the earth. At the Larchmont Laboroties the 47th sample of dir.t yeilded the mold that seems lo produce an antidote fo 'rflu. It was named LL47. LL standing, for .Larchmont Laboratories. About 50 research workers are keeping the laboratories going day and night on experiments with the new mold. 'The fact that the origin of this mold .is not specifically known will make no difference if it should prove a remedy for flu, since cultivation of the original sample would furnish sufficient "seed" for all purposes. This parti ucamlrold is an asper- eillus, which grows on grains, fruits and'earth: It is sometimes green, sometimes black. There are thousands of 'different strains of this mold.

M. McCloughan, Poppy Chairman of Leslie Huddleston Unit of the Auxiliary, has"announced. Organizations which will aid the Auxiliary include girls from the Junior Organizations of the Churches. ' Workers from these groups will serve side by side with the Auxiliary members distributing . the memorial flowers on the streets throughout the day and receiving contributions for the welfare of disabled veterans, their fnmilies and families of the dc;id. All will s.erve as unpaid volunteers and contributions made to them will go entirely into the rehabilitation and child welfare funds of the Legion and Auxiliary. "We are very much grateful for the help of these girls and young women," said Mrs. McCloughan. "Their unselfish service will do much to help make the observance of Poppy Day a success in Hope. I hope everyone they meet on Poppy i Day will recognize the patriotic spirit' in which they have volunteered and resoond in the same spirit when offered a poppy. "The poppies, made by disabled veterans at Fort Root will be worn in tribute to the memory of the dead of both world wars and to aid those still suffering ns a result of war service,'" Mrs. McCloughan explained. substances that curb tin infection in laboratory chicken embryos were found in apples, citras fruits flav.s»ed. myrrh and gum acacia at tin Rockefeller institute for mod- ica-l research. These wore reported today by Dcotors D. W. Wooley'and R. H. Green of the Institute. ALL OF these are sugars known as polysaccharides. No predictions were made -about final results. •A third possible flu remedy was reported by A. F. Rasmussen. Jr., Julia C. Stokes, Harry A. Feldmah and Joseph E. Smadel, army medical department research and graduate school, Washington. D. C. This is a synthetic chemical, with a name requiring 62 letters, four numerals, eight hyphens, two commas and one parenthesis. For short thay cal it nitroakridin 3582. It has been reported before. But today the Washingtonians reported further progress indicating that it tends to inhibit flu.

They are .bound to absorb those they love, body and soul, and we see this illustrated every day in a thousand different ways.

More perfectly good marriages are ruined by the possessivensss .of wives and hy their determination not to let the'i'r 'husbands have anv interests, or even any thought of anything but them than by any other cause.

Rolling her . eyes, head thrown back and nostrils distended, she got the story clear in her own mind and plunged. "I feel it my duty to tell you, and although my lips have bean heretofore sealed—although I thought I could carry my secret to the grave—I believe that in the circumstances, for the sake of the child, he would forgive me." "Madame—" breathed Mrs. Bagot, leaning forward. : "You ask me why I was never married to Vicky's grandfather. Ah He was not free to marry me. You ask who he was—" She drew a deep breath and intoned. "There are names too august to be bandied about, ,even to save .a' young girl's honor. I shall not mention his name even now." With blazing eyes she regarded first one and then another of her spellbound audience. There was n tense pause. "I shall sim-plv ask vo.ii a question. Mrs. Bagot," Sophie said, dropping her vou-e to a whisper. "What if I were to tdl you that victoria was named for her grandfather's mother?" Sophie's arms dropped to her sides.

"She couldn't very well have been anything else." "After all." Salty said, "we're broad mined nowadays. And if'you don't mind our marrying, Madame van Eyck, I really think it would look very silly for us to object." Sophie smiled, although her facial muscles ached and she was more than ever aware of a ereat weariness. "She's at the Plaza, Salty," she said. "In my suite. You may use it for the honeymoon." . "Thanks, Madame. Thanks a million." He was gone without even saying goodbye. In New York, Vicky was standing near the hotel desk when Salty breezed in and rushed up to her. breathing hard. "I'm here," he announced, ns if he had been expected. Vicky's heart turned over. "I haven't slept sinon l last saw you," he said accusingly. "Lots upstairs where we can talk." When they were up in Madame van Eyck's sitting room, the first thing Salty did was to repeat in an injured tone of voice that he had been unable to eat or sleep. Vicky thought he had followed her to New York simplv to open up again the same line of futile ar-i guinent. "Then the sooner you forget all about me, the better for your health," she said. "If you would marry me tomorrow, I wouldn't have lo forget you. Oh. Vickv, will you?" "But, Salty, I thought—thai is. vou and your mother understand how it is. Have you forgiven—?" He looked at her with n mixture of humility and possessive pride. "Don't ever speak of it atrain! It' you think I am worthy of you— there's nothing to forgive, nothing to forget." And he took her in his arms as -if she were too precious to be left unguarded fir a mom.ant. "Oh, my goodness!" Vicky sobbed, clinging to him. (To Be Continued) The Doctor Says: BY WILLIAM A. O'BRIEN, M.D. Written for NEA Service Gout is a fairly common disease, and treatment is successful in most cases. If the condition is recognized in the beginning stages, the development of gouty arthritis and degeneration of the various organs can be prevented Dr. E. C. Bartels, Lahey. Clinic, Boston , reminds us that the diagnosis of gout is easy when its possibility is kept in mind. If the patient has repeated attacks of acute arthritis affecting any of th.? joints of the extremities, gout should be suspected. ?.[ in addition, the attacks come on suddenly, last a law clays to several weeks and then disappear without leaving a trace, it is more likely to be gout than arthritis. The man who wears a cut - out shoe because of tenderness in a joint should be suspected of having Kout. Inflammation of the bursa ut the elbow js another favorite way lor gout to develop. .It is a common mistake to believe that gout occurs only in wealthy, overweight, red faced users of a'l- colio'i who cat a lot of meat and hiiihly seasoned food. Doctor Bartels found that one-third of his patients were not overweight and one- third did not use alcoholic beverages. Less than half had their first attack in the large toe or foot. Carbohydrates Only Best treatment of an acute attack of gout is to take (he drug, colchicine. All food except carbohydrates should be stopped, and concentrated glucose should be given intravenously. In the period between attacks, the object of treatment is to keep down the uric acid in tho blood. Gouty persons should eat less p:o- tein and fat and more sugars and starches.

Goodness only knows how many men are driven to philandering by possessive wives/ Children Victims, Too Next to the possessive wife as a troublemaker is the. possessive mother, who never cuts her apron strings -and lets her 'children have any life of -their .own; She can't bear to think, of-her darlings ' ever loving anyone, but herself: so' she isolates her daughters from' every young man who comes a-cburt- ing, and she has hysterics every time her son' so much as looks a't a pretty girl. If any of her children even talk about following some career thai would take them away from her, she shuts the door of opportunity in their faces by taking to her bed and threatening to die.

It is pos- sessivenoss again. Each one is determined to be the boss and the sole and undisnuted authority 'and to run things her own way. Queer things, women, : aren't they?
