In order to simu late interest Ktnong the counties in c'uded in tie campaign, Judge Rob ert W. Bingham and Wallace T. Hughes, thru the Courier-Journal of Lodisville, are offering the sum of $5,000, to be given in two prizea of $3,000 and $2,000 to the counties showing the largest percentage of improvement in the work outlined by the Extension Department. This contest will appear to be startlingly new to the casual reader, but it is not at all new. There are many counties now in the state that have had, and ara still having, achievement competition among com munity clubs. The central organiza tion of the better-county campaign is the community club, and it is in direct keeping with the plan of the state department of agriculture in promoting local organizations and community patriotism thruout the state. The Extension Department also plans to develop a competitive campaign among local clubs in each county, the winning club to receive special recognition in the form of a prize. If all the communities of the county should enter a community contest, the result would be the raising of the whole county toward the goal sought in the better-county campaign. There are ten important phases of country life to be influenced by this campaign: Schools, churches and Sunday-schools, sanitation and health, better homes, road improvement, ag riculture and livestock, farmers' or ganizations, junior clubs, newspaper and magazine circulation, and coop eration. Every county should strive to make the most advancement pos sible along every line indicated in this list It is not the purpose of the Extension Department to make impossible demands of the counties. Everything required of individuals rai groups will be practicable. Fori example, under the heading of schools will come the up-keep of buildings, beautifying of grounds, painting or vhite-washina. increased attendance. BOY WHO BROKE JAIL AT MT.

The record of last year, and the condition of the school as a whole, when the contest begins will form the basis of tabulating the progress made during the year. This ran be ascertained by honest and careful inquiry, and at the end of the contest an inventory will be taken again to determine the progress that has been made. It means that the county superintendent and his teach ers will be the promoters of the school phase of the campaign; that the county agent and his agricultur al organization will become the lead ers in the agricultural and club phases. The promoters of tha campaign confidently believe every forward looking citizen In the "cotrntles that enter the contest will enthusiastically get behind the movement Judge Bingham and Mr. Hughes considered it so valuable that when they were asked for a $3,000 prize, volunteer ed to make it $5,000. Four counties have indicated their desire to enter the contest even before any publicity was given to the project. Eastern Kentucky is on the upward move, and it is to be expected that many coun ties will be anxious to get into the contest ' Not only is the Berea College Ex tension Department promoting tho idea, but it stands ready to cooper ate in every way possible with every county that enters the contest in making improvements along all the lines outlined in the campaign. Tha Superintendent of Extension will give a large portion of hia time to gliding the counties toward the ulti mate goal. Many outside agencies such as the State Department of Ed ucation, Department of Public Health, Department of Agriculture, Red Cross, Y. M. C. A. and the State University will endorse the move ment and cooperate with all coun ties calling upon them. Counties, or leaders in counties, wishing to get further information about the cam paign With a view to entering it should write at once to M. E. Vaughn, Secretary of Berea College and Superintendent of Extension. FARMER SHOT BY YOUTH IN JEFFERSON CO.

World News By. J. R. Robert on, Profeaoaa- af Hiatory and Political Seie Berea Collega The conference at Genoa haa al ready passed thru some turbulent experiences but now seems to be set tling down a little better. It has been decided that Germany, because of her treaty with Russia can take no part in any of the conferences that affect Russia. Russia continues to ask for recognition and for money and credit. Only on these terms will she promise to be responsible for her debts. It has been shown that thert is but little money in Europe that could be loaned to Russia and it has been plainly stated that what there is could not be turned into the hands of the Soviet administration. France has threatened to withdraw from the conference unless it can be carried forward along lines previously agreed upon. She will not admit any tam pering with the Treaty of Versailles. .Conditions in China are sufficiently disturbed to warrant the U. S. in sending a warship into Chinese waters in case Americans citizens need pro tection. A Manchurian general, Chang Tsao Lin, has undertaken to unify the country which has been for some time much divided. He has control of the government at Pekin. The capital is isolated at present from the rest of China.. He seems to have the support of some of the leading men in South China who have always regarded the govern ment at Pekin as responsible for a militarist policy and for the interven tion of Japan. If a movement for unity could succeed, it would be a good thing as China's future largely depends upon her ability to develop a strong unified state. The U. S. would like to see that done if it were properly done. Tha marriage, of King Alexander of. Jugo-SIavia and Princess Marie of Rumania is an event of significance from the fact that it brings two of the Balkan States into closer relation. Alexander ia the successor of King Peter, of Servia, who died a short time ago. Jugo-SIavia is the reali zation of the Servians' hopes and am bitions, as it brings under one gov ernment peoples of a similar race. Rumania also was increased in size, and its boundaries rounded out to in clude those of similar stock living under the jurisdiction of Austria Hungary. The princess, Marie, ia popular and inherits some - of the beauty and ability of her mother who was conspicuous among all the queens of Europe interested in all move ments for betterment of her people and a writer of distinction. The new ruler of Egypt, King Fusd, has begun his reign with some thing of promise. Extravagance haa been a characteristic of the Egyptian rulers, and it waa this that led to the intervention of European coun tries in the last century. The new king rules over a better country be cause of the English occupation, and if he proves to be capable of develop ing his country and devoting hia energies to the good of his people rather than luxurious living, Egypt may have a permanent place among the nations. There should be much of inspiration to a ruler in guiding the fortunes of a country that baa such a history as Egypt The course of the new king will be carefully watched, especially by England. Victor Emanuel, King of Italy, was a personal visitor at the Genoa Conference recently. He shows muck familiarity with the procedinga and interest in them. The Russian rep resentative, Chitcherin, waa entertain ed on the Battleship, Dante, and d ned with the King. Incidentally, a picture was taken of the two to gether, including also the represen tative from France. The French man was considerably displeased and tried to get possession of the film. Russian communistic ideas have not been popular in Italy, and the King's actfon did not receive unanimoua ap proval. The ruler of Italy ia demo rrntic in his character and oftea does thinga that would seem daring to other monarch. The personal meeting of men from different coun tries ia one of the advantages of the Conference.
