A, the State health department and the agricultural ex tension division of the College of Ag riculture will cooperate In carrying out the program which has been ar ranged for the junior agricultural club camps scheduled for thirty-two counties during the coming summer, according to an announcement by C. W. Buckler, State leader of junior agricultural clubs from the college. The Y. M. C. A. will have charge of recreational and inspirational feat tires of the program, the Health De partment the sanitation and health about the camps, in addition to a phy sical examination of boys and girli attending, while the extension division will instruct the youngsters in homo making and farm Improvement sub jects. County home demonstration agents will have chartre of the girls at various camps while the boys will be taken care of by county farm agents, Mr. Buckler announced. Inspirational and recreational sub jects at the camp will include the teaching of those subjects which wiir train for character building and help ; the boys and girls appreciate sur- ' roundings as they are found in the,panes have bjj n tried, and now country. The farm boys and girls I it js proposed to use a small dirig- also will be taujrht many new games. which can be played in rural commu nities. In addition to being given a physi-i cal examination by the health depart ment, the youngsters will be tautrht principles of sanitation and health which can be applied on the farm. Twenty-three four-day camps have been planned for the thirty-two camps, several counties being grouped together in some cases to form a camp. Camps have been scheduled for the following counties: Muhlen- burg, Simpson,vBallard, Logan, Camp bell, Graves, Warren, Rockcastle, Madison, Union, Barren, Knox, Clay, V-Bell, .Henderson, Hart. Whitley, Dar kless, Larue, Laurel, Jackson, Shelby. Taylor, Powell, Lee, Owsley, Breath itt, Jefferson, Marion, Boyd, Lawrence and Martin. The schedule will start July 4, and end August 26. The Rockcastle-Madison camp will ba near Berea. All club members from these two eounties will get their Information from County Agent Spence, Berea. Tha camp will start July 18 and continue thru tha 22nd. It will ba tha bljrgest things our clubs have ever had. Plans should be made now both by farmers and club members to at tend. Vaccination Way to Control TIog Cholera Vaccination with anti-hog cholera ssrum and hog cholera virus eoupled with sanitation Is tha only means of preventing and eontroling hog cholera which gives indicationa of becoming serious In the State during tha eommg summer, according to Dr. W. W. Di mock, head of the veterinary science department of tha Experiment Sta tion. The disease occurred In several communities during tha fall of 1920 and already has broken out In several mora during tha past spring. If suckling pigs In tha herd are healthy and tha premises are not In fected, that la, were free from chol era tha prevtqns year, tha animals need not be vaccinated until ten days following weaning at which time they should ba given both tha single and double treatment. In easa dlaeaaa occurs la tha nerd r tha farm la known to ba Infected with hog cholera, suckling pigs should ha vaccinated when they are about three or foot weeks aid with Ua single or double treatment. Ten days after weaning and before eight weeks have elapsed from the time of the ' first treatment the animals should be i vaccinated with the double treatment. Advantages of treating the pigs soon after weaning are that they are light in weight and do not require as much serum as they would when they be come larger. The possibilities of ob taining life-long Immunity also are increased if the pigs are vaccinated at that age. Before the treatment is applied the animals should be taken off heavy feed. No surgical operations shouH be performed until the pigs have fully recovered from the effects of the treatment. Call on your county agent for fur ther information. CONDUCT MILK CAMPAIGNS IN MANY COMMUNITIES Selling the milk habit to folks is the way some people refer to the ed ucational milk campaigns which are being held under the supervision of dairy specialists of the United States Department of Agriculture. These campaigns are cooperative enter prises, the department specialists joining with the State extension forces and local officials and leaders in showing the value of milk as a health food. Thus far 17 States have cooperated in conducting cam paigns in -40 cities and more than 100 rural communities. Before a milk-eonsumptlon cam paign is held In a community a pre liminary survey is conducted to make sure that the milk supply is clean and wholesome, that there is a sufficient amount to take care of any increased consumption resulting from the campaign, and that the local au thorities are willing to cooperate in the movement It is also made cer tain that a condition of undernourish ment exists among growing children or that children are consuming too little milk. By following this plan, tho department specialists say, every milk campaign thus far conducted has been successful and has resulted in a more than temporary increase in the consumption of milk. WILL TRY PONY BLIMPS FOR FIGHTING FOREST FIRES Various kinds of gas-propelled ve hicles have been used at one time or another in the Forest Service. Uni ted States Department of Atrriculture, by patrolmen and fire-fighting crews Track speeders, motorcycles, motor boats, automobiles, trucks, and air- jj,je technically called a pony blimp. One of the big companies making tires and other rubber goods in Cal- ifornia specifies these advantages for the pony blimps: A cruising ranee of 8 hours; speed of 1 to 45 or 50 miles an hour; ability to buck stiff winds, making 10 miles an hour against a 30-mile gale; control of elevation, flying within 50 feet or less of the earth as well as at several thousand feet altitude; ability to land on very small plot of ground; maneuvering readily in close quart ers; can be held nearly stationary close to earth; discharges passengers on rope ladder while machine hovers over a selected spot; can be tied to a fixed object while crew fights fire; can be used for transporting sup plies; low cost of operstion. The blimps will be equipped with 75-horsepower Lawrence motors and will carry three or four persons com fortably. 'The blimps will cost about $ 12,900 and the operating cost is es timated at about 24 cents a mile, in cluding total maintenance of the ship for 24 hours or an actual flying-time cost of 2 1-2 cents per mile. SWIFT REVIEW Cream haa been marketed in In creased quantities the past week. Pastures are in good condition, and indications are that flush production is close at hand. Poultry is moving from tha farms quite freely, Indicating that the hens have about 'laid themselves out." As a consequence markets are on a low er level. Egg receipts have shown further decrease, due to tha warm weather and to tha fact that tha end of the laying aeason is in sight. Too much cara cannot ba given to tha market ing of eggs frequently during the warm weather. BARGAIN Bby Chicks Broiler etoefc 10c each.

OUR OWN MARKET TOO SMALL Exports of Manufactured Goods Will More and More Become Dominant Factor in America's International Trade. &y This Expert. , By EOWARD B. CLARK. Washington. According to Kiigcne Meyer, Jr., managing director of the nar finance corporation, American manufacturers are adversely afTeeteil by foreign tra lc conditions at this time chiefly In two ways. The tint concerns the good which should tlnd their way to foreign consumers, and the other ciwicenm the good which would flml a very much Improved domestic market If the buying power of our own people wiye Increased hy an Improved foreign market for the great mass of our agricultural and mineral products. A large part of our territory has endured a prolonged financial strain, Mr. .Meyer says, owing to the Inability to move goods and to liquidate limns, and the commercial congeal Ion neces sarily has hevn paralleled by a finan cial congestion. The markets for our manufacturers are radically and unfavorably affected by the failure of our own market to take. In usual volume, the goods which we normally Import. '.This Is particu larly true of linMirts from South Amer ica and Aula. A better buying power mi the part of our own market in cer tain commodities would, Mr. Meyer be lieves. Improve the market for our manufactured gitnd In the lands that produce those commodities. "It Is clear that the whole structure of our domestic business Is Intimately affect ed, directly and Indirectly, hy our for eign trade," said he. "Our luimrts of fond products and raw materials In fluence our exrt markets, and our exports of other food prodacts and raw niuterluls make, to a great degree, our domestic markets for manufactured goods. Any sound constructive step whieb would tend to overcome. In whole or In part, the present dllllrul- giMals, under more normal conditions, will more and more become the domi nant factor In the position of our coun try In international trade. Our ex ports of fcMtHstufls have been large In recent years, and are large now, hut prior to HUI tl.ey showed a tendency toward a steady decline. Our trade with foreign .lands Is tending, in the long run, to develop more rapidly In the direction of the exportation of manufactured products the question of our International finances will be- 1 Aine an increasingly Important tiurt of our International econgmlc relations and policies. "Kuroie'a financial organizations f or ""eniutloiial trade were developed tor tne purpose or nnancing manu factured exports. The marketing of taw materials and agricultural prod ucts la a much simpler business than the marketing of manufactured goods. In abort, foreign trade Is peculiarly a problem for the future that calls for the best thought of manufacturers snd bunkers." Mr. Meyer believes that the devel opment of personnel and organization for future foreign trade and finance will lie a grudual growth. Pressure for DisearmamenL The administration la feeling an Increasing pressure In favor of (be United Stute taking the lead In a movement among the major nations for a reduction In armaments. It waa this pressure that Influenced the l'resident to withdraw his opposl flon to the Horah amendment to the ssvy appropriation bill, an amend ment which auggeats that the l'resi dent Invite Great Britain and Japan to Join this government In a confer ence looking Id a greater reduction In armaments. In withdrawing its opposition to lb Horah plan the administration was careful to let It be known that It waa not obliging Itself to carry out the suggestion of the Horah amendment In case the bouse should sccept It and It should become a part of the navy appropriation bill ss finally passed. Congress understands that tha 'resi dent reserves the right to take up tha questlou of disarmament In bis own time and In his own wsy. It Is very well understood that tha administra tion has plsced disarmament on Its program of tilings which It hopes even tually to accomplish, but It la not the understanding that tba number la to ward the top at the prog run. Secretary of State Hughes bss In dicated from time to time that before aucb questions aa Clsannament, asso elation of nations, and other matters of supreme, world laaportane can be given thoughtful consideration, maoy aataUer natters . of International import must ba disposed of. A fa- 1 Oil vorlte expression of the State depart ment Is thst the "International under brush" must be cleared out before the really far reaching problems rsn be tackled. It la the view of the ad ministration, and the President snd Secretary Hughes undoubtedly feel that It Is the view of the country, much as the country may desire dis armament, that the United States shall not take any step that will expose this country to danger. Agitation From Three Sources. The administration Is not unmlmt fill of the growing sentlhienf through out the country In favor of cutting down exM'iises chargefihle to prcpura thm for war. The agitation In favor of disarmament, the letters and tele grams that remli the executive de partmetit reveal, Is coining from three definite sources. The women's organi sations throughout the country are particularly active. Recently they have been holding mass meetings In many cities and passing resolutions for the eye of the l'resident. The rbiircbes of all denominations are also taking up the subject and day by day are bombarding the White House with resolutions snd memorials. The third Influence emanates from the tss bur dened business men of tint country who realise, as do the authorities here, that a reduction In federal taxation If Impossible so long as the government continues to niend so lavishly In pre paring against possible wars. Assuming that the plan provided by the Ibtrnh resolution will not be car rle out hy the administration, it least two other plans are poasllde. The subject may be taken up by the su preme council of the allies, or It may be held In abeyance for the considera tion of the association of nations or League of Nations, which presumshly the I'tilted States Intends to Join sootier or later. There sppesrs to be excellent authority for saying thst tho administration believes It might be well to withhold any step until the question of whether there la to be an association of nations or a league of nations with the t'nlted States as a member Is definitely settled. It may turn out that the adminis tration after further consideration will decide that It will be worth while to do as the Horah amendment suggests Invite Great ltrltaln and Japan Into a preliminary conference- hut all the Indications are that the administra tion has no thought of doing anything of the kind. Great ltrltaln. It Is well understood here. Is not ready to go Into a Conferem-e unless practically all the nations that are represented In the League of Natlmis are to he con sulted. To Enlarge Botanic Gsrden. To uiuke the national botanic garden one of the finest In the world hy enlarging It where it can lc a constant source of en)oyment of i lie national capital snd to the one million unuual visitors from sll parts of the country. Is the purpose of s hill Introduced hy Iteprcsetitatlve John W. I .ui r ley f Kentucky, clialrmaii of the house committee on public buildings snd grounds. Mr. l-anu'ey contends that It Is fun dameiilal that to M-rfonn In the best posslhle way the functions fur which it was created the botanic garden must be within easy access of the Hople. He makes alternate proposals: (I) To enlarge ami develop the garden where It Is now at the huse of cupltol hill, when for years it has been a quiet ulid delightful retreat for mem bers of congress and the thousands of tourists who come to si-e the sights of the capital; (2) to pluce the garden lu Kast I'otoinac park, where It would be Ideally lixated with a three-mile HH-dway and water front surround ing It, aud where It would beautify the approach to the capital from the south. "Members of the congress love the botanic garden becsuse It bss for years been their hsndlest retrest," suld Itcpresetitatlve Langley, "and they will never couMont to Its removal to any place where It could not be eas ily reached by the people, and hy the visitors from their home states, who count the garden as one of the moat attractive 'sights' In their tours of the capital." Much Mere Space Nesdsd. Hearings are to be held on Mr. Langley' bill In the near future. "From extensive Investigations 1 hsve made," said Mr. Langley, "I find that this government la fur behind all the other leading countries In having an up-to-date botanic garden. Such an institution has always been strong in the diffusion of knowledge, snd scien tific discoveries. This must be cor rected. I believe the dllllculty is be csuse the ulstlng Institution haa been badly cramied for space. "My Idea la to give It plenty of ground for development, and at th same time keep It close to the center of populstion. especially so that visi tors may easily find It snd spend souio time there without having to waste half a day going out to Hock Creek park, where some time sgo It was pro posed to remove It, or the Hamilton trsct, on the road to Baltimore, where mora recently there bus been a pro posal to place It." Representative Langley protests al so that tha gsrden should out be "clut tered" up with monuments. Ha be lieves that It was fair neither to the gsrdeu nor the Grant memorial to place he latter where It Is "backed up to wards tba capltol, and so crowded among shrubbery thst no one gets a fair view of Its proportion." The Langley bill proposes to take twe blocks west of tha present sit of tha garden, between atsrylsnd and Mlasourt avenues and Third and Slxtk streets, and add them to tba rare of Ua garden.

The Judgment of the Nations (Matt. r::4 -I"). The biblical unit here Is verses Sl 4d. One rniiiiot Intelligently teach the verses selected without their setting; so It would be better to take a survey of the whole. This Judgment shuuld be carefully distinguished from what Is popularly called "Ceueral Judgment." The Itlble speaks of different Judgments, differ ing In resMi-t to the subjects, the place, the time, and the results uf the Judgment, Note the following partic ulars: 1. The Judge (v. 31). The Son of ktan In glory. 2. The time (v. 31). It Is when the IOrd shall come In His glory accom panied by His glorious retinue of sa ge I a. 8. The place (v. SI). It will be on the throne of Ills glory. This throne will he most surely In the land of Is rael. The prophecy of Joel, third chapter, and .i-huriah 14:1 9 wake It to be In or near Jerusalem. 4. The people Judged (vv. 32-4S). These, people, will he the living nations upon the earth after -the church has beeu translated (I These. 4: 18. 17).
