Rio de Janiero, (By Mail.)To
anyone, who was in America last fall
when the nation welcomed King Al
bert and Queen Elizabeth of the Bel
gians, the preparations being-made
by Brazil to outdo her sister republic
in a reception to these same royalties
next fall might be breath-taking.
While no iron-clad program has yet
been arranged, about the only ques
tion still to be answered is whether
or not the royal couple can stand the
The Belgian rulers are not expect
ed to arrive here until September but
already scarcely a day goes by with
out some new preparation for their
visit being announced under glaring
headlines in the press.
The Latin love of pomp and display
is figuring largely in the plans. The
army and navy is being worked over
time in an effort to whip, them into
shape to pass the review of the sol
dier-king, and officers and men alike,
ordinarily snappy enough for any
army are fairly on their toes two
months in advance of the advent of
A comparison between the propos
ed Brazilian reception of the King
and Queen and that accorded them
in the United States is nothing if not
startling. It is like comparing a
prayer to a grand hurrah.
Few persons in America, who form
ed the hundreds of thousands who
saw King Albert and Queen Elizabeth
last fall, will ever forget the admir
ing crowds that gazed in all but sil
ence at the Belgian royalties as they
drove unostensatiously about from
place to place. Here and there was
a cheer, but for the most part the
crowds were typically undemonstra
Brazil knows how to make carnival
and Rio has seen many gay nights
and days. But it is doubtful if any
festivity gone before will ever again
be able to bat in the same league
with this reception for the Belgian
rulers. Not if the committee on ar
rangements, headed by the minister
of foreign affairs, can help it.
Following the arrival of their Maj
esties, they win be lmmdiately driven
to the Cattete Palace to meet the pre
sident. Then the program will be
started in earnest. It will consist of
a series of events, which bids fair to
consume every minute of tire time the
King and Queen spend in Brazil.
There wll be a ftiilitary parade for
a start-off then will follow a ball at
the foreign office at Itamarty Palace,
after which the royal party will at
tend a "solemn session" of the Acad
emy of Associated Sciences In the Na
A partial list from there on in
cludes a visit to the Academy of Fine
Arts, a garden party at Cattete Pal
are, a Venetian fete, a sports fete in
cluding an athletics parade and two
football games between the four lead
ing teams in the Metropolitan league,
a grand concert at the Municipal
Opera House, and so on. There events
will be interspersed with innumer
able visits to the interior and to the
mountains surrounding Rio de Jane
iro and the bay.
In between the festivities, if there
is any in between, Brazil is expected
to be in a very respective mood for
suggestions regarding financial aid
for Belgium. There have been a num
ber of "feelers" from Brussels regard
ing an international loan and this has
not dampened the ardor of the gov
ernment or of the public for the re
ception of the King and Queen. The
feeling grows that Brazil is not at al
averse to a few "entangling allian
ces" in Europe so long as they are
merely financial. And the visit of a
King and Queen is worth any amount.

DOLLARS MADE AND
GOOD FOOD SAVED
A new bulletin entitled "Potato
Diseases in Minnesota," prepared by
O. R. Bisby, until recently of the di
vision of plant pathology and botany
at University Farm, and A. G. Tolaas
in charge of potato seed certifica
tion, emphasizes the importance of
careful methods in handling, storing
and shipping potatoes in order to pre
vent serious losses from rots. This
section of the bulletin is particularly
timely After warning that heavy
losses will continue as lang as pota
toes are handled like coal, the author
of the bulletin says.
"Every bruise or injury on a po
tato makes it easy for various stoi
age rots to develop. These rots have
their origin in the soil or in unclean
bins and it is important that great
care be exercised while digging and
while handling the potatoes after
placing them in storage. It might he
well to keep badly oruised potatoes
out of the storage cellar, since a
large number of tubers so injured are
certain to rot and spread the rot
thruout the bins.
"Storage cellars should be thoroly
disinfected before potatoes are put
into them. A strong solution of blue
stone, 1 pound dissolved in 10 gal
lons of water, or formaldehyde, 1
Dint in 19 gallons of water, should
be used to wash or spray the bins
Storage rots spread more rapidly
when the temperature is high and the
ventilation poor. In order to pre
vent serious loss the temperature
should be kept at from 35 to 40 de
grees F., and the cellar should be
kept as dry as possible.
"Potatoes also should be handled
carefully when they are being taken
out'of the cellar and prepared for
shipment. Whether the potatoes are
graded on the farm or at the loading
point, it is good policy to remove all
tubers showing any rot whatever.
Simply running them over a grader
does not remove rotted or bruised po
tatoes. Proper heating and ventila
tion of cars are also important fac
tors in preventing rots in shipment."
PRESENTED GOLD SERVICE
PIN FOR 20 YEARS' WORK
P. W. Litchfield, vice president and
factory manager of the Goodyear
Tire &" Rubber company, recently
completed twenty years of service
with the company and was presented
with the gold service pin given to all
Goodyearites at the expiration of
that period of service.
The company's Service Pin associa
tion was founded by Mr. Litchfield
who conceived the idea of awarding
beautiful emblems for service rang
ing from five to twenty years.
Five years ago he gave $100,000
to the association, which has been
used to help build homes for the
members. About $50,000 is saved an
nually by them on the purchase of
necessities at lower prices than can
be obtained from merchants.
