Tho boys of tho local high school held a meeting yesterday and after considering for some time tho merits of track and base ball as spring ath letics decided in favor of track. Their experience last year when they de cided in favor of baseball and then did not get to play a game, was tho thing that helped in getting them to decide this year for track. , Last year they found that practically no other schools had baso ball teams and then the weather was against baso ball.

In a pub lic ad dross, Rear Admiral Mark L. Bristol, U. S. Navy, High Commissioner to Turkey, who has charge of all American Interests in tho Near East, went on record whole-henrtedly In support of tho American relief organization. "If I have been able to encour age tho workers of tho Near East Relief or givo them assistance In any way," tho Admiral said, "I feel that I am more than repaid In keeping with the success that has attended the efforts of tho Near East Relief Committee in this part of tho world In tho past I hopo the future gill bring you greater success. It will always give mo pleasure to render nny assistance possible to the Commltt on no n Whole;; to any of tho workers, nnd toHho groat work of humanity that tho committee represents." When 189,000 Russian refugees from.ithe Crimea arrived off Con stantinople, 'Admiral Bristol imme diately cabfeti the Near East Re lief for help, and the Near East Relief bakeries fed these refugees nnd N. E. R. workers helped the American sailors to get the sick to hospitals. Admiral Bristol Is Id Intimate touch with all tho work being con ducted by tho Near East Relief and speaks from persohal knowl edge of its accomplishments. INVESTIGATOR INDORSES NEAR EAST RELIEF During the Pence Conference In Par Is the American Commission to Nego trato Peace, appreciating tho Impor tance of accurate, first hand Informa tion about tho Armenlnn sltuntlon, sent Capt. Renjnniln Purges Moore of the American Red Cross as iend of a special- mission to study nnd report on conditions. Cnptnln Moore's findings as to the value of the work done by the Near East Relief form pnrt of his offi cial report. "Armenians are sincerely grateful to us," Captain .Moore states, "since It Is no exaggeration to say thnt they would have disappeared as n nation hnd It not been for this splendid help given them by the Near East Relief nnd 'he American Food Administration. The best thnt sympathetic Americans enn do Is to continue and enlarge the pres ent admirable work of the Near East Relief." ALFALFA AS A REFRIGERATOR Planted Around Farm Houses It Has Been Found to Reduce the Tem perature Materially. Refrigerators Indoors aro common enough, but It took tho farmers In the Southwest to devise one for outdoor use. A fanner who happened to plant n largo field of alfalfa south of the farmhouse noticed during the hot sum mers that followed that his family did not suffer from the heat as did the neighbors. The thermometer showed a temperature five to ten degrees in his favor. Someone suggested that It might bo duo to the alfalfa, tried tho tempera ture Just north of other alfalfa- fields and found the same marked difference. Now the fanners of thnt region are planting alfalfa around their dwell ings and enjoy summer temperatures that make a trip to the seashore need less, nccordlng to the Golden Age. The cnuse of tho coolness of winds passing over alfalfa fields is that tho plant nbsorbs much moisture, the evaporation of which reduces the tem perature of tho air and lessens tho summer heat In the adjoining land over which It blows. Tho suggestion now is for farmers that wish to profit from tho presence and tho board money of summer va cationists to combine the profit and utility of alfalfa with higher1 rates from hot-wcathor hoarders attracted by the coolness of tho ton-ncro refrig erator nround the house. Little by little men are boglnnlng to learn how to utilize the means pro vided by a good Creator for their com fort and well-being. Top Rpw Dr, McKirahan, Donald Yost, Captain.
