The problem of a target range
for Fort Brown, which has faced
local military and civilian groups
for years, appears near solution,
according to a report made at the
chamber of commerce directors
meeting last night.
The military affairs committee
reported that several situable sites
on the Boca Chica highway have
been selected, and that military
authorities are now negotiating
with the owners for a 10-year lease.
The chamber of commerce com
mittee consists of J. L. Abney,
Charles Burton, and J. H. Batsell.
This committee has aided in se
lecting sites, making surveys, and
getting in touch with the owners.
It is necessary now to take the
Port Brown troops to Fort Ring
gold for target •practice, and the
armv has sought to remedy this
situation. •
The directors were told of efforts
being made by the chamber of
commerce to prevent abandonment
of the naval radio station at Fort
Brown, which is used in securing
weather and market neu's reports
for' the Valley.

Kidnap Suspects Plead Not Guilty
Pleas of not guilty were entered by Kenneth Buck (standing), alleged
abductor of Peggy McMath, Cape Cod schoolgirl, and by his brother
Cyril (seated), alleged go-between in the ransom plot, when they
were arraigned on kidnaping and extortion charges, respectively, in
court at Provincetown, Mass., as shown here.
Rehearsals for the senior play,
which is to be presented Friday
night at 8:15 o’clock in the Browns
ville high school auditorium, are
progressing under the direction of
Mrs. Joe Lindaberry. The play,
"Clarence,” a four part comedy by
Booth Tarkington, is reported one
of the cleverest to be given here.
An admission fee of 25 cents will
be charged for the evening per
formance. Junior high and gram
mar school students will be admit
ted to the dress rehearsal matinee
Friday morning at 9:30 a. m. for
10 cents. Proceeds from the play
will be used in defraying the ex
pense of the annual senior class
publication, "The Palmegian."
The play gives the story of
Clarence, an ex-soldier with a very
interesting personality; the Wheel
ers, a family whose social affairs
become confused and Miss Pinney,
the Wheeler governess. Roles for
parts have been successfully as
sumed by members of the cast.
Mrs Martyn, an intelligent,
discreet, confidential secretary is
played by Dorothy Early. Mr.
Wheeler, Jesse Slcss, an important
man of affairs, is more than puz
zled over the problems of his spoil
ed, neurotic wife, Myrna Summers
and his 16 year old son, Bobby ana
15 year old daughter, Cora who
are suffering with the effects of
their “first higher loves.” Bobby and
Cora are portrayed by John Dutro
and Marie Jackson. Miss Pinney,
the charming Wheeler governess,
played by Ruth Ernst, does her bit
in solving the Wheeler difficulties
much to the disgust of the jealous
Mrs. Wheeler. Hubert Stem, a
pompous grass-widower of 26, tries
to win Miss Pinney’s favor, but
with little success. In his efforts
to be near his beloved, he becomes
an attendant of the Wheeler daugh
ter. Stem is played by Clarence La
Della, Nora and Dinwiddie are
Wheeler servants, who provide
much amusement. Della is displeas
ed with Master Bcbby who has
been making love to her. Lois Mat
thews, Judith Stegman and Rey
naldo Garza have these roles.
Mickey West is very good as
Clarence, the man who is con
stantly being misunderstood. As a
soldier during the great war.
Clarence drove mules in Texas ana
was shot in the liver. He gets his
position of "what-not” with the

SAN BENITO. May 18.—Growers
at two points in the county told
about plant troubles and best solu
tions this week.
S. W. Clark, enotmologi^i with
the state experiment station at
Weslaco; W. J. Bach, director of the
station; R. G. Burwell, Willacy
county agent; and Henry Alsmeyer,
Cameron county agent, took part
in the demonstrations at the P. H.
Green place at Stuart Place and A.
J. Carpenter place at Rio Hondo.
Tomato Worm
Clark discussed the tomato worm
which can be controlled by dusting
with calcium arsenate when the
plants are small or even before the
tomato is formed and once a week
thereafter. The worm causes much
loss on early tomatoes.
Clark also told about nematodes,
an invisible worm which accelerates
root growth and causes them to
swell. Planting of Iron and Brab
ham cowpeas and of corn, cane,
sudan grass helps in control of this
condition, he said. Careless weeds
are said to be a carrier of nem
Will Discussed
Bach discussed the Fusorium wilt
which caused a big reduction in
tomato production this year. He
said it could stain the soil for as
long as ten years. Crop rotation
and planting of cowpeas which do
not carry the wilt were advised to
combat it. Tomato seed should be
treated with bichloride of mercury
before planting. Marglobe and
Break o’ Day are the most resistant
varieties while Clark’s early and
Texas Special are most susceptible
to wilt.
Burwell spoke on truck crop con
ditions in Willacy county, saying
that there will be a smaller tomato
crop than last year.
Alsmeyer gave figures on tomato
shipments showing total movements
of 2.891 cars in 1931. 837 in 1932 and
1,242 to date this season.

-put away for 30 months
Four miles of warehouses are used to
store our tobaccos. The crops now in stor
age are worth about $70,000,000 . . . most
of it for Chesterfield Cigarettes.
The Domestic kinds are packed away in
wooden hogsheads that weigh 1,000 pounds
and stand as high as a man’s head.
Like fine wine, tobacco improves with age.
So after our buyers select, from the various
markets, the right kind of tobacco for
Chesterfield, we put it away for 30 months
or more to become mellow and sweet.
This ageing process is expensive, but
there is no short-cut to make tobaccos mild
er—to make them taste better. 'It just takes
money and time to make Chesterfields.
