The U. S. Department of Agri culture has announced that there will be no wheat marketing quotas and no acreage allotments during the 1947-48 wheat production and marketing season. The action was taken in accordance with provisions of the Triple-A Act of 1938, which provides for marketing quotas when the total supply of wheat 1 exceeds a normal year's ; domestic consumption and exports by more than 35 percent. A normal year's domestic consumption and exports, plus 35 percent, is calculated'at 1,239,000.000 bushels. , <, 'Watch Your "Garbage Cans," Earl Martindale', Chairman of the county Famine Relief committee said this week in urging housewives of the county to continue their efforts in the famine emergency program. ...

It-is Still a puzzle to them, so ' it : is called "nutrient X." ' ; ' , ;'; The U. S. DepartmeVit of Agri» culture, not wishing to go too lar put on a limb about nutrient X, says it "appears to have the properties of a vitamin and apparently plays an important part ' in the .'palatability' of foods.". Scientists define "palatability" this Way: something that depends not only 'on the taste of food but also on the need of the body for Ihe food and on what the body Will do to the food — "if it is eaten." The Bureau of Dairy Industry says it has found X in sever.:-.! milk products and in other foods and feeds — lettuce, egg yolk, beef and pork muscle, blucgrass, alfalfa and timothy hay. The X in the diet, according to the Agricultural Research Administration, is so essential that ex-. perimeniers have found this: That while rats on a diet relatively high in! .prote.ing usually died if X was lackjng, they lived to be 85 percent if .^normal "on the same diet when V 1 !_-„ J 'V. ,jp- :*. r . .,- • She: says there -Wasn't" a : -doily"in the palace Avheri'-sHdi^hibvcd •' in in 1341..

The 25-ycitrs-ago column of the Arkansas Gazette reports this 1 morning that back yonder: Watermelons welglfing from 40 to GO pounds are being fed to hogs' in various parts of Hempslead county because high freight rates make It impossible to ship them. A argc acreage was planted to melons and the early shipments '» P, r i ovcd satisfactory, but since the' Missouri melons , navo come the Arkansas growers can not compete with the Missourians in a low" market. The freight rate frdrrV 'opc to St. Louis is around $175 per car, while growers just across the line to the north of this state. can ship their melons into St. LoUls at a rale of $40 per car. Sorho melons were sold this week at & cents per 100 I. o. b. Hope, The nigh freight rates have also- caUS- cd the growers to quit shipping cantaloupes.

How far the world has com'c ulong a road which was closed 'and avoided a year ago may be- seen in the recent speech by Gen. Charles de Gaulle which advocated a Franco-British alliance. A year and more ago, as men' planned for a better world of peace in the midst of war, statesmen and press and common citizens were denouncing the old ba- pance-of-powcr system. How sure they were that here was the root \Jol war! How confident they were that it should never return! How General dc Gaulle comes lorth with a plan to, transform what is '. called • the Big Four (but is actually the Big Two) into a Big Three.

Britain's notable lack of enthusiasm 'can probably be accounted for by her natural wish to cling close to American strength, rather than cast her lot with' a minor alliance.

Heirens' long-awaited confession told in detail of the crime that shocked the nation' last -January when the little girl was taken; from her home and killed. '-, He told of climbingt into her room and apparently, awakening her. When she sat up' in bed, he said, he. strangled her. Then, he said, he took her to the basement of an apartment building nearby, dissected her body with a knife and disposed of the parts. He said he had not, intended to kidnap or kill the child, but had entered the Degnan home bent on burglary. • . • • His statement at times was confused. He could remember only disposing of the last part of the body, an arm, which he placd in a sewer. ; _ His grisly story apparently was intended to indicate ; his confused state of mind.

Then he boarded an elevated train, returned to his room on the university of Chicago 'campus, and began studying for'his day's classes. All this occurred before the sleeping parents were aware that their little girl had been murdered Heirens spoke in calm lona's, as if - he were trying to remember. He was surrounded by three of his lawyers, Stale's Attorney William J. Tuohy, assistant State's Attorney Wilbert Crdwley and police officers who took part in the investigation. His statement, one of the most gruesome in police records, marked the solution to a crime seldom equalled for its brutality Stenographers recorded every word the youth spoke. i_ Hoiah-cady had admitted the JJcgnan; slaying' orally, along with the murders -of Mrs. Joscphnc Ross, a, rwjdowocl housewife, and ;ex|jw^vq ^Frances 'Brown.

Asked what he did with the body, the youth replied: "That part is not clear io my memory, but it was deposited in sewers." "Did you cut it up before you put it in different sewers?" he was asked. "To my knowledge, yes," he replied. Heirens said he used a knife to dissect the child's body, then threw it onto the elevated railroad structure a block from her home. •'. He said that after disposing of the body and the- knife he boarded an elevated train and returned tp the University of Chicago campus, arriving , there at 6 a. m. He went' to his room, he said, and began -to study. •> Hojrens said an hour and a half elapsed between 'the time he disposed of the last -part of the little girl's body and tht time he threw the knife ' away.

Most Active Japanese of the Occupation h Minister Who Is Reviving Christianity By RUS5ELU BRINES (For Hal Boyle) Tokyo. Aug. G —(/P)— Tnyohino Kagawa, 58-year-old Christian minister, is probably the mos't active Japanese of the occupation — vigorously pushing plans ranging from a great Christian revival throughout Japan tp solving food shortages. Impartial observers say the energetic little man retains grea't in- tluencc although some of his Wartime speeches were abroad as jingoistic. considered Early in the occupation he told me in an interview that he hated the word "defeat" because "I am a Japanese." Intimates say Kagawa's dominant interest at the moment -is his three-year "ali Japan Christian evangelist campaign" which began Sept. G as a nationwide attempt to spread Christianity. Kagawa currently is touring the country giving a series of Chris- ''an. lectures including a sp'ecial Christian service in Tokyo. He also is working to restore an estimated 500 Christian churches which were burned put during the SimuJtanepusly, h e is furthering his long-held dream for a s'eries of co-operatives directly liiikihi .producer and consumer which he says is the only method of insuring adequate food for Ja.pan. Kagawa- holds the position of adviser to the social democratic party, which he helped to found, and heads the "co-operative unions federation." He recently was appointed a member of the House of Peers, the second chamber of Japan's diet. The welfare ministry a short time ago adopted Kagawa's plan for unemployment insurance, and the Japan educators union recently named him as its chairman despite his protests that he was too old and ill. He is editor and publisher of the weekly Japan Christian newspaper and is president of the "international peace society" which he also helped to organize. Tp handle all these duties, Kagawa maintains a driving schedule, permitting himself only four hours of sleep daily. He has become so lean that intimate associates are concerned over his health. Friends say Kagawa frequently has praised General MacArthur's policies in private conversations. "MacArthur's pplicy is a grand success," he was quoted as saying on one occasion. "Every Japanese should recognize his acts and sincerity and should express full gratitude to tlje general." • Advises U. 5. to Leave China; By EDWIN B, Maaklnaon Washington, Aug. 6 —Wl— Sen. ators Ellender (D-La) and Butler R-Ncb., said today Gen.

Just mback from^a 42-day flight that carried them rind three house members around the .*vorld, the Senators credited Mac.Vlhur with a tiptop job of -organizing and controlling the defeated Japanese, As for China, however, both senators said in separate interviews they favor speedy withdrawal of all American troops and an immediate end of direct aid to that trouble-beset nation "We wore all greatly impressed with what General 'MacArthUrfflaV done and is doing in "Japan," El- told Us that our -troop& 'soon' cam Butler-affirmed this'^and' added' that he' expects MacArthur to re* main sunrpme^commander in Japan until the job is reduced to^ai routine. •, ! \, Shortly after MacArthur first entered Japan ho produced a minor' sensation in military and .diplomatic circles here by announcing that occupational troops could bu reduced to 200,000 within six months. That estimate, touched off a flurry of critical comment, coming as it did in the midst of congressional.' and public controversies over demobilization and postwar policies. In their comment on China both Ellender and Butler said the current attempt tp bring about a truce between opposing factions is an impossible task. "We are trying to cure Conditions in China that have existed for m many centuries;" Ellender said. "Our troops there are not easing a tense situation. There 1 are many incidents we m do not hear about back here." As an.; example, Ellender said that in Shanghai the congressional group was: served a special Chinese dinner-prepared by a "fine- looking mess' sergeant 'at the headquarters." "The sergeant served us the dinner^ and "stepped outside a few hours later;,! and was murdered," tne senator,? 1 declared . "No one knew ,Why, ; ;'he was killed.

Charges and counte'i-charges of "high handed action" i and rightful owner crackled by .radio from ship to shore. A salvage crew from the Farmer's sister ship, the American Ranger, sailed the crippled vessel and her cargo' of wheat toward England at [six knots. , A small British steamer, the Elizabeth, reached the American Farmer first. Capt. E, Millers and his crew claimed the salvage prize, hoisted the Butish ensign, and started towing the Farmer towarti Cardiff. , Later the Amciican Ranger hove into sight), A larger crew was sent aboard the Farmer fiom her sister ship. .Capl. Millers said the Americans struck the British ensign, raised the American flag, and cast off her low line Millers said he had signaled: "Hands off; this prize is mine."

I hey appealed to the admiralty and treasury solicitors to intervene. A Hudson director said both the Farmer and Ranger may be "arrested" when they reach port, probably in 'four or five days In New York, officials of the United States lines, which owns u°ih the Ranger and the F-nmer had a different story.

Fragmentary reports from the stricken northeastern shore disclosed an exceptional geologic disturbance of frightful majesty. Thousands of peasants fled into the woods and hid while the earth continued to shiver spasmodically long after the first violent quake early Sunday afternoon. In San Juan, on ntarby Puerto RICO, seismographs recorded more than 50 small 'quakes m the West inaies between Sunday afternoon and last night.
