A REAL HYPOCRITE. In speaking of hypocrites and self ish business interests, it appears that the editor of the raving columns of the News is entitled to the blue rib bon without any opposition when speaking in these terms. The Royal Neighbors gave a dance the night of Memorial day and had the dance tickets and all advertising matter for same printed in the News office, and the job was gladly accep ted. Then, after doing the printing, this hypocrite turned around and crit icized the order in his wailing sheet for giving a dance on Memorial day. If his narrow minded beliefs were against a dance being held on that day, why did he not refuse to do the printing for this dance? Simply be cause he does not allow his principles to conflict with his selfish business interests. Bring out your Webster's, Bill, then turn to the word "hypocrite" and you will find yourself well defined. REPUBLICANS PLAN BIG PROGRAM OF WORK Washington, D. C.—Adjusting dif ferences over the question of enlarg ing the steering committee, house re publicans have adopted a resolution to give early attention to a compre hensive program of legislative work. The steering committee, now five, will be enlarged to meet the wishes of many members, especially western members. This enlargement is ex pected in the next month.

"Only a Starter." This is by no means a complete pro gram for the congress for the next two years. It merely sets forth what will be given first attention in the ex tra session. To pass these measures, will require time and hard work but Leader JÄondell and others hope to see them expedited. If they can be put through, or largely so, in the extra session, it will be a rare legislative achievement. But even if some go over to the winter session, there is every present indication, as the new congress meets, that much of the pro gram will be disposed of this summer and next fall. It is generally recognized in the new congress that forward-looking la bor legislation should be enacted and the house labor committee is expected when organized to give intelligent at tention to the questions which are be fore it. BRANCHING OUT. Bill Rhodes, editor of the Valley County Knocker, has been in Nashua frequently the past two weeks, and ocassionaly was in consultation with members of the board of directors of the Farmers Produce company. It has been rumored that Brother Wil helm is trying to secure the position of buyer for that concern in our city, in which event he would discontinue the publication of the paper at Glas gow. We do not know how true the rumor is, but if such is the case, it would appear that his supply of stock in the Valley County News is about exhausted and he is looking for new worlds to conquer. And he would make such a splendid man for the place ( ? ) Possibly Art LeSueur could be obtained as secretary of the insti tution. Such things might come to pass.—Nashua Independent. John E.

HOOVER SHOWS VAST SHORTAGE ABROAD Paris, June 3.—A preliminary sur vey of the import necessities of Eu rope, except Russia, shows the area will need 700,000,000 bushels of wheat and rye at a minimum or 850,000,000 bushels as a possible maximum, Her bert C. Hoover, the head of the allied relief organization, said in a state ment today. The export surplus of the grain from the larger exporting countries indicates that the needs of Europe can be met. Mr. Hoover estimates the exports of the United States at 470,000,000 bushels. "Through our organization and in co-operation with other governments," the statement says, "we have com pleted a preliminary survey of the food prospects of Europe and the im port necessities, outside Russia, for the harvest year beginning August 1, and the world supplies available to meet these needs. U. S. Consumption Jumps. "The present stocks and crop con ditions in the larger exporting coun tries would indicate that there should be in the coming harvest year and ex port surplus of wheat and rye of from 870,000,000 bushels to 900,000,000 bu shels, but of this other countries than Europe require about 1,000,000 bushels leaving the supply of from 770,000,000 bushels to 800,000,000 available for Europe. "The consumption in the United States has increased to an extraordi nary degree in the year. From the 1918 crop of rye we will export about 270,000,000 bushels and, as the 1919 crop promises to be at least 200,000, Breaking the World's Record in an Overland Overland Model 90 Travels Seven Days and Nights Without Stopping Motor. COVERED 4,'}70.1 MILES Gear Was Sealed in High, Making Hardest Possible Test on All Car's Working Parts. Remarkable automobile perform ances are not as frequent these days as they were four or five seasons ago; the American automobile manufacturer has attained so very high a standard of product. That may explain why so much unusual attention has been attracted during the last few days to a new world's performance record made by an Overland stock car, Mod el 90. New from the factory, this Model 90 was taken from the salesrooms of the Carhart Motor Company at Ok lahoma City, Okla., on March 29th, and driven to the lobby of the Lee Iluckins Hotel. There the gear shift lever was disconnected from the low, middle and reverse gears, and the gear box was sealed in high. The motor was started; the car left the hotel and did not return for seven days; that was April 5th. The Overland 90, driven by a relay of four drivers, ran nipht and day, the motor never stopping for 108 contin uous hours. The drivers had no ad vantage of gear shifting during the two days of rain on muddy roads and the twelve to fifteen hours they spent each 24 hour day on good and bad city pavements, in the rush of traffic, and on the Oklahoma roads. It has been said that if a motor car will stand up 011 an Oklahoma road, it will endure in any other section of the world. In these seven days and nights, dur ing which the gear could not be shift ed from high, nor the motor stopped for carburetor adjustment or spark plug change, the Model 90 broke the world's record for a test of this kind. The speedometer, carefully checked, showed that it had traveled 4,370.1 miles. That is practically one-sixth around the world, or a distance equal to a trip from New York to Los An geles and back across the southern trail to Oklahoma City. This remarkable non-stop perform ance by the four drivers of this Ok lahoma car. The A. A. A. record for a 24-hour non-stop, gear -sealed in-high run is 587 miles. That mile age was made in Chicago, several Glasgow Overland Company, Dealers 000 bushels larger than 1918, it seems that we can export about 470,000,000 bushels. "The minimum export surplus from Canada Argentina, Australia and mi nor countries may be estimated at 400,000,000 bushels, while Russia and India may be considered out of the export list next year." TWELVE WARSHIPS TO BE USED AS TARGETS Washington, June 3.—Twelve pre^ dreadnaught battleships will be re lieved of active duty with the fleet placed out of commission and event ually broken up for junk or used as targets by more modern vessels un der plans now being worked out by the navy department. The ships are of the "mixed battery" type and are considered valueless against latest fighting craft. Four of the battleships, the histor ic squadron comprising the Oregon, Indiana, Iowa and Massachusetts, al ready have been relegated to the scrap heap. The remaining eight, apparent ly doomed to the same fate, are the Kearsarge, Kentucky, Illinois, Ala bama, Wisconsin, Maine, Missouri and Ohio. Vessels Cost $90,000,000. The twelve vessels, built between 1893 and 1901, represent a total ex penditure for hulls and machinery alone, of more than $99,000,000. When placed out of commission they will re lease for other duty approximately 10,000 enlisted men and 400 officers. The ships long ago outlived their usefulness as combatant units in a fighting fleet although when they were built they were among the most for midable war vessels afloat. All of them were used during the war with Germany as training ships, coast de fense units. Slow of speed, with small coal capacity, inferior ordnance equip ment and insufficient protection against present-day projectiles, the ships, if kept in commission would be a liability in action. Use of Old Ships Puzzles. The question of the disposition of so many practically useless battle ships is before the department at this time. The historic old Oregon has been offered to the state of Oregon for memorial purposes and probably the Iowa, Indiana and Massachusetts will be broken up for the metal that is in them. The remaining eight will very likely be used as targets for ex periments in the effects of modern gunfire. Some may be utilized as coast defense units by sinking them in shoal water at the entrance to the more important harbors, making them veritable fort«. With these twelve ships stricken from the navy register the fleet will ■m V ,,r • ::v s Model 90 at end of 168-hour non-stop run, entering lobby of Lee-Huckins Hotel, Oklahoma City.

That was the third day—an afternoon and night of rain with mud dy going under the axles. The car then fell eight miles under the mark, but its performance was so unusually high that it averaged 624.3 miles for each day of the 168 hour run. The motorist is interested in tests j of this kind only as they point him to some feature of economy in opera- | tion and upkeep. The test made by ! E. R. Carhart, Overland distributor I in Oklahoma, appears to be replete ! with such features. The judges of the | contest were the president of the chamber of commerce of that city, and the managing editors of the two leading daily papers. Examination of their records of the Model 90's record breaking trip show: 1. The car made a trip, exclusively 4,370 miles—7 days—wi th- gear sealed in high. comprise forty dreadnaughts, twenty nine of them of the most modern type, and all of the "big gun" type of con struction, ten being equipped with 16 inch turret guns, the most modern and powerful batteries afloat. In addition to this powerful fleet of forty battleships there now are authorized and under suspended con struction six cruisers planned on a scale never before attempted by any navy. They will be 850 feet in length, of an estimated displacement of 35, 000 tons and will mount eight 16-inch uns. The contract speed of these cruisers is thirty-five knots. Secre tary Daniels has recommended that construction immediately be resumed on these battleships. COAL PRODUCERS* WAR MAY FORCE DOWN PRICES Salt Lake, June 3.—That a war be tween coal producers of Wyoming and Utah which may force the price to low levels in August, was made ap parent here today at the annual meet ing of the Utah Retail Coal Dealers' association, which was addressed by prominent coal operators of both states. D. A. Pape, representing the Ec les Coal interest in Wyoming, during the meeting, announced that "within ten days an announcement would be made of the purchase by the Cccles interests of one of the largest coal producing properties in Utah. Mr. Pape refused to amplify his statement, saying that the announcement would not be made for several days. MANY FARMERS' PICNICS PLANNED FOR THIS MONTH The farm bureau will hold summer picnics the last two weeks in June and will thus give every one in the county a chance to attend a picnic and hear some good outside speakers and enjoy good home sports, such as ball games, etc. The speakers from Bozeman can stay only ten days, therefore it will be necessary to group the county accordingly. Several farm bureau communities will unite and have one big picnic and the same con tests which will be arranged locally by a program committee. Every one will bring lunch and we will all eat together. We want every one in the community to attend whether a farm bureau member or not. The farm bureau is a county-wide organization for the benefit of all and we want you all present. Come and enjoy yourself by see ing some good home sports and a good talk by W. L. Beers, field agent in marketing, and W. E. Tomson, live stock expert. The program will start in the forenoon. Come early and stay all day. in high gear, through city traffic, over country roads, with two days of steady Oklahoma downpours to con tend with, at a cost of one and 17-100 cents for gasoline and oil for each of the 4,370.1 miles traveled. 2. Gasoline can be saved by prop er shifting of gears under varying traffic conditions. The Model 90's ree or is declared to be unusually good under the no gear-shift conditions. Burning 59 test gasoline, it averaged 20.66 miles for each gallon. 3. Only 5 7-8 gallons of oil were needed. The oil cost $4.70. 4. Champion spark plugs were used. None were changed nor adjusted dur ing the seven days' continuous driving. 5. Federal tires were used. There were three punctures only. Wouldn't the man or woman who drives be con tent to undertake a transcontinental trip if he thought it would cause no more tire trouble than that? The picnic will start on June 16th at Rosedale school house, six miles east of Avondale, and the farm bur eau communities uniting at this place are Baylor, Avondale, Ossette, West Fork, Tande and Rosedale. June 17th at Coal Creek. Battle son, Richland pnd Coal Creek will unite at this picnic for a big feed and a general good time. June 18th, Golden Valley, Glentana, Opheim, Barnard, Roanwood and Tan go communities will unite at Golden \ alley. Inquire of Wm. McMuredo, A. U. Sands, Carl Rosholt or J.

The captain of the driving team was Linn Mathewson, well known in the east and middle west as a famous racing driver on the speedway tracks. He is now the re tail manager for the Carhart Motor company at Oklahoma City. The Oklahoma public was advised in advance of the test. The daily newspapers bulletined the progress of the run each day. In addition to that publicity, Mr. Carhart arranged to flash on the motion picture screens of the city, the ear's mileage every four hours. The run was officially started by F. W. A. Vesper, the pres ident of the National Automobile Dealers' association. This amazing demonstration of the economy possibilities of the light weight American car of high-grade manufacture is already reflected in an increasing inquiry in this and ad joining territories for motor cars. It is estimated that there will be an ap preciable shortage of motor cars this year—the first free season after the restrictions of the war-munitions pro duction. The local dealer for the Overland, John J. Domek of the Glas gow Overland Company, points out that while this run has produced a very great many inquiries for the Model 90, conceded to be one of the most successful of American automo biles, the production of these cars has been limited this year by the parent company in Toledo.
