nances," stild Sir Richard Gregory In
the course of his .iddress at the re

mosquitoes; typhus fever by getting
rid of lice; typhol by cleanliness; tu

and the responsibility of showing how

the fact that few plants are more
widely adapted and few crops more

bulb culture In .'ie United State
which points to rich possibilities In
the years to come.

white boy of American parentage to
be born In Japan. His father was a
missionary who was attached to the
Tokugawa government as an educa

Japanese Imperial university. Toung
Verbeek's playmate and 'friend was. a
Japanese boy whom his father helped

boy's nam was Koreklyo Takahashl.
