The building materials have been
placed on the ground prior to the erec
-tion of the new gymnasium which is
to be built here soon. The building
to be erected will be 100 by 150 feet,
giving a total of 15,000 square feet
of floor space. The building will be
large enough for two basketball courts
a .batting cage for baseball, and a
place to keep track going during bad
weather. The building will accoi
modate over a thousand spectators
and will also furnish a good hard
wood floor for (lances given by classes
and ladies of the campus. It is hoped
that the new gymnasium can be built
in time for the basketball season,

than previously would have been
lJossible in a thousand years.
The New Source of Rubber
"The expanding use of rubber
following the discovery of treat
ments of the raw material whiclh
made it available for many useful
purposes, threatened the supply of
the available wild plants.
"Cultivation in plantations then
began in the far cast, Mexico and
elsewhere, and the boom, following
this, was accompanied by various
.uilemirable financil developments
with whi ch newspaper readers are
Rubber, like other staples, now
is known to be available in a va
riety of climates and perhaps hun
dreds of plant species.
"One of these is the 1Mexican
plant, guaydile (Latin Parthenium
Argentatum) of the Chihuahua des
ert, its habitat extending north in
to the Pecos region of Texas.
"This plant contains a caoutchouc
which long has been marketed in
limited quantities as taken from
the. -Wild plant.
"But there is no purely wild plant
in the world producing any general
article of commerce which, if left
in its wild state, eventually will
not be exhausted by the demands
of trade. Use of wild plants means
their extinction; continuett use tie
cessities their cultivation. And the
cultivation of guaule never was at
tempted until recently.
Hundreds of Varieties of the Wild
"Dr. W. B. MacCullum, a scien
tist widely known for his skill in
manipulation with living plants
selected an experimenlal location,
comprising several hundred acres
on the arid hills near the sea and
"The first important result was
the defection of several hundred
varieties of the wild plant. The
selection for the best began, a task
of magnituW2, for those varieties
were as wide in their difference
as are different varieties, for in
stance, of apples, the differences
pertaining not only to the exterior
appearance of the plants, but to the
quantity and quality of rubber
"The next step, with the methods
of our ancestors, or their lack of
methods, might have occupied a
thousand years. Under expert mod
ern scientific gui(lance and devo
tion it has taken only a short time.
"The selection of a small num
ber of varieties promising by ren
son, of the quantity and quality of
their product from the many thou
sands of plants grown from the
wild seeds, was the first necessity.
"The next was the development
of methods of cultivation which
would bring plans simultaneously
to maturity, making the establish
ment of a harvest period of possi
"The stage for this second act
was set on a great ranching prop
erty near Tuscon, Arizona, where
the Desert Laboratory of the Car
negie Institution is located. Here
the field expert conducted his ex
periments in collecting and ripen
ing seeds, their germination and
transplantation ;1ind eultivation in
fields, all of which had to be work
ed out through the expenditure of
an enormous effort and much time.
Details at this stage, were multi
tudinous, and have been of such
great interest that scientists from
all parts of the world have come
to study them. With myself these
men have been deeply fascinated
by this thrilling chapter of the do
mestication of a wvild plant-a
thing not .likely to b2 seen more
than once in a 1lifetime.
First Crop of the New [Rubber Ripe
''But now all has bxen accom
p1lished and there are matutring in
these fields growing rows of shrubs
containing rubber which are even
ly maturedl. It is now b. lieved thlat
they are' ripe.
''The de terminat ion of t he exact

but it is near at hand. It is safe

like that known as 'Pa:ra.' It hans

A report in the Times of December
14th, that Mrs. E. C. Nettles Als
brook is due a part of 192G taxes is
false as she holds a receipt from
County Treasurer, L. L. Wells and
from Town Clerk, J. G. Huggins for
1920 taxes paid December 21st, 1920.
She wias out of the State for the
Christmas holiday 1920, but sent a
blank check signed by her to Town
Clerk J. G. Huggins requesting him
to fill out check for taxes 1920 due
the Town. Also, sent a blank check
signed by her to County Treasurer, L.
L. Wells to fill out with amount due
for State and County taxes 1920. Both
checks were dated December 31st and
cashed at the Bank of Manning. On
returning she received the receipts
for taxes due and paid 1920.
In December 1921 she was notified
that balance of taxes due 1920 with
penalty amounting to $47, if not paid
at once her $10,000 homestead would
be sold at public auctioY for the $47

the total cost of the work reached the
figure of half a million dollars.
The story is one of romance and ad
venture linked to the most vital
periods of American history. It re
cords its facts with the rapidity of
lightning and yet never departs from
the fundamentals of true drama. Love
and conflict are its basic theme but a
myriad of details illumine the narra
tive and lift it so far beyond anything
our stage has ever known that the
usual avenues of comparison do not
offer a road to follow in this instance.
Linked with the drama is an operatic
