Concise Statement of the » Plans of Greater College Baton Rouge, April 23.—On his re turn from the extensive toyr of agri cultural coleges east of Jie Mi.esis'ppi river the other day, Dr. R. 0. Young, chairman of the Greater Agricultural College association, made a signifi cant statement in relation to the plans for the college that puts an entirely new face upon the movement and un undoubtcdly will win supporters to the cause of the Greater Agricultural College. It has been the general impression it seems that the plans of the promo ters of the movement for a Greater Agi'icultural College contemplated the abandonment of the smaller agricul tural departments of the schools of the state, or at least their neglect, and the monopolizing of all funds avail able for agricultural education, but this has been an erroneous view of the ! situation. The policy of the associ ! ation contemplates entirely different j results, according to Dr. Young. "Our idea is to make the Greater j Agricultural College just what its j name implies—a finishing school," he j said. • "It would become a college teaching only advanced grades, the j finishing grades in a complete agri 1 cultural and mechanical education, so that students who completed its j course would receive and be worthy : of a diploma as a finished product of j agricultural and mechanical training. ! "This policy, if carried out, would j \ , ... . , , . . mean that boys of the state desiring ... . , a course of farming and mechanics i ,, , , : would spend their freshmen and soph- | .... ... . , i ; omore years in studies at the agncul I, , , , , . . . ..

I These would be preparatory schools, ■ with a curriculum adopted in harmony ! with the plan of finishing at the ! Greater Agricultural College, where : would be taught the junior and seni j or courses. I "Such a policy naturally would mean greater interest in the agricul Unusual Value-In Tires for the Smaller Cars Not only is characteristic Goodyear merit conspicuous in Goodyear Tires for the smaller cars, but ordinarily the first cost is found co be not greater than that of other tires; often it is actually less. The combination of unusual value in first cost and very low final cost, of course, is a result of Goodyear experience, expertness and care employed as insistently in the mak ing of 30x3-, 30x3^2- and 31x4-inch tires as it is in the construction of the famous Goodyear Cord Tires used on the highest priced automobiles. For this reason more cars using these sizes were factory-equipped last year with Good year Tires than with any other kind.

This clears up the situation moêt favorably for the movement, it seems, since it disposes of the fear that the smaller agricultural departments were to suffer through the success of the Greater Agricultural College move ment and at the same time indicates the manner in which the smaller agri cultural institutions will receive the necessary financial support and be come a vitally important factor in the general scheme of agricultural educa tion for Louisiana boys.

There is more serious stage of Catarrh then tlie annoyance caus ed by foul breath, sores in the nose, nasal discharges, stopped-up air passages, and other distasteful features. The real danger comes from the tendencyof the disease to continue its course downward toward the lungs, where it may act as the ex citing cause of dreaded consump tion.

Promptness in answering is a courtesy that your telephone caller appreciates—delay may cause him to abandon the call. In one large city records show that on nearly seven out of every 100 telephone calls there is a delay of more than a minute be fore the called party answers. This occurs thousands of times daily, and in one-fourth of the cases the party calling does not wait.
