Havana Fox, a grade Jersey also owned by J. H. Kimble, stands sixth with 54.3 pounds of butterfat and 1085 pounds of milk. Second high cow was No-16, regis tered Guernsey owned by J. S. & E. T.

Fifty-five of this number produced 40 pounds of butterfat or more. The average production for the association was 32.59 pounds of butterfat and 466.78 pounds of milk. This is a slight increase over last month’s average, mostly due to freshing ot COW'S. A conference was held last month down at College Park, where the testers for the state met with various members of the Department at Washington, and also executives ol the Department of College Park. Many things were brought up for dis cussion and plans laid for new un dertaking in the Dairy Herd Im provement work, for the coming year. This work is rapidly growing throughout the United States and the necessity for such work is seen more and more in the dairy world. o FATALLY INJURED AT QUARRY Morton Einwachter, 27 years old. of Port Deposit, died in the Harford County Memorial Hospital, Havre de Grace, on Monday, from injuries re ceived while helping load stone on a truck at the Port Deposit quarries, when he was struck by a falling rock. He suffered a fractured hip, ankle and internal injuries. o FISHERMEN PREPARING FOR BUSY SEASON Fishermen and packers are mak ing preparations for the annual run of herring in the Susquehanna, Elk, and North East rivers. The season will be somewhat late this spring, due to the weather conditions for the past several weeks. The packers salt and pack in barrels and ship them by truck to New York. At the height of the season thousands of herring are caught in a single drift. A few shad have already been caught at the head of the bay. o A man is lucky at cards and un lucky in love if he wins in both cases. RECOGNIZE THE YOUNG LADY AT THE MAIL BOX? The Midland Journal is anxi ous to learn the identity of the young lady pictured on the front page of our April all rotogravure STATE FARMER SECTION which is part of this week's issue. It has been re ported that she is a resident of Cecil County. If you know this young lady, please advise The Midland Journal. We’d like to share her identity with other readers. At any rate, she appears to be as happy over receiving the family newspaper as we believe you will be after you look over this week’s issue of The Mid land Journal. In addition to the regular news features, our all-roto gravure STATE FARMER SEC TION presents a great many articles, pictures and regular departments which should be of real interest to every reader. But, judge for yourself—don’t you think The Midland Journal j is making a real advancement I in contributing to the agricul | tural advancement of Cecil II County, with its farm maga j| zine supplement? ;i TEMPEST IN A TEAPOT The following aftermath of the tempest in a teapot that occurred some motnhs ago, when the Persian minister was arrested in Elkton for auto speeding, as he deserved, is an Associated Press dispatch from vVashington: Anger which has smouldered in Iran (Persia) since two Maryland traffic policemen arrested the Iran ian minister burst open into the open i.oday. Turning a diplomatic cold should er to the United States, Iran closed ts legation and consulates in this country. Its diplomats in Washington and consular officers in New York and Chicago packed up to leave for home. Persia was hurt, authoritative sources said, because of articles in .he American press which were con fidered discourteous to the Shah and his country. Apparently, however, ..lie diplomatic reproof was a direct outgrowth of the Maryland incident. Minister Chaffer Djalal was motor ng through Elkton, Md., last Octo ber when two policemen stopped his jar. They said his chauffeur was speeding. After a dispute, the officers hand juffed the minister. He protested to the State Department, and subse quently the policemen lost their jobs for violating diplomatic immunity. Secretary Hull apologized, but he also hinted pointedly that foreign diplomats should observe American laws. Djalal, who said he was aware of ao law violation, was recalled to Iran ,n January. He made no secret of .he fact that there was displeasure in Teheran over the treatment he had received. The Persian government sent no minister to succeed him. The lega tion here has been headed by Hos sein Ghods, charge d’affaires. Hos sein Gadime and Jaroslav Smetanka are the consuls at New York and Chicago respectively. The closing of the offices is not a break in diplomatic relations, be cause the American legation at Te aeran remains open. It is not the first incident between the two countries. Observers here understand that Persia has never forgotten the demands the United States made when an American vice consul. Major Robert W. Imbrie, was killted in a mob riot in Teheran in 1924. The United States insisted upon: An apology from Persia; indemnity of ¥60,000 for the widow; punish ment for the persons considered guilty; a guard of honor headed by two generals to accompany the body to the sea coast; a salute of 11 guns; payment of SIIO,OOO to cover the cost of sending a cruiser to bring the body home. o LEGION PAGEANT IN JUNE “Ramona,” by Helen Hunt Jack son, has been announced as theme for the seventh Kennett Square American Legion Pageant, at Long wood Gardens, with Fountains dis play. The selected evenings are June 18, 19, 20, with John T. Hall, again the director. o Nobody loses anything by polite ness, but many people seem afraid to risk it. o Life should be a route, not a routine. o- Economy consists in knowing how to get others to supply your wants. TfflE MTfrLAXD JQUBJAL, FRIDAY APBIL 10, 1936 CECIL. COUNTY CHILDREN’S AID SOCIETY The Cecil County Children’s Aid Society held its Annual Meeting at the Episcopal Parish House in Elk ton on April Ist. Miss Katherine T. Kirwan of the Maryland Children’s j Aid Society, was present and pians) were considered whereby the 'state j organization would assist the County j Branch for an experimental four j month period during which time trie county would share with five other counties on the Eastern Shore the services of two trained social work ers, whose salaries would he paid by the central office. The expense of board, clothing and medical care for the children in the county who have been committed to and are under care of the Aid Society is to be met by the county with private donations to sup plement the county appropriation. This arrangement calls for a smaller budget but also less help from train ed workers, and means that the local organization will have to do a good bit of the routine work which has been done heretofore by the worker. Officers for the coming year were elected as follows: President, Mr. Wallace Williams; Vice President, Mr. Edwin S. Dorcus; Secretary, Miss Bertha Balderston; treasurer, Rev. J. Warren Albinson. The members of the Board whose terms expired this year were re-elected for two years, and it is hoped that a 100 per cent response to the membership drive which this group will sponsor will yield the necessary funds to care for this very deserving group of children who for one reason or an other seem to be without homes of their own. These children are fu ture citizens of Cecil County and what they become depends very largely on the care given them by their more fortunate neighbors. The cooperation given the state organi zation by the county branch will de termine whether this plan can be continued for the year as would seem very desirable. The district office for the present will be continued in Elkton with Miss Sibbet and Miss Rau doing the work in the six coun ties, with the assistance of local groups of volunteer workers in each county. B. BALDERSTON. O DEMOCRATS PLAN RALLY IN BALTIMORE Young Democrats of the counties of Maryland will play prominent roles in the activities which will mark the welcome to Baltimore of 1 President Roosevelt April 13 when 1 he comes to the Fifth Regiment Armory to deliver the first speech of his political campaign. The coun tians are organizing their units for attendance at the Armory to hear 1 the President and at the Ball which will follow; also in the parade which will escort the nation’s Chief Exe cutive into the Armory. The rostrum from which the Presi dent will speak will be the same he used when he spoke there during his 1932 campaign and also the same that Senator George L. Radcliffe, his Maryland campaign manager, used when he ‘stumped’ there in 1934, while running for his present office. Demand for tickets to both the Ball and Dance has been very heavy, according to Louis Goodman, secre tary of the committee in charge of the Rally and Ball. While general admission to the Armory is free, tickets will be required. Tickets for the Ball are one dollar per per son. Both tickets for the Rally and Ball may be obtained in the city at headquarters at the Lord Baltimore Hotel and in the counties from lead ers of the Young Democratic Clubs of Maryland. Tickets to the Ball entitle holders to reserved seats for the President’s address. o FIELD DAY AT COLLEGE PARK University of Maryland is making special provision for high school stu dents at its Annual Field Day at College Park, May 2, which as usual, will be featured by the Scholastic Meet with 13 open events and eight closed to county high schools of the State. Regular admission to the athletic carnival is sl, but a special 25-cent I ticket for school boys will be pro vided and will be obtainable through the principals of the respective schools. For the benefit of these on the Eastern Shore a special round trip ferry rate of 55 cents has been secured from Matapeake to An napolis. The tickets will be good from May 1 to 3, inclusive. o SEEK LOCATION FOR TEXTILE PLANT Messrs. Rocelle and Meyers, of New York, were in Rising Sun on Monday seeking a desirable location for the establishment of a silk throwing plant.

This \ production was considered by all the t most impressive drama ever presented in Wilmington. The Luenen Passion Play is a lineal t descendant of the medieval or mystery plays of central Europe. In those days ’ but a small proportion of the inhabit ants were able to read, and the dramatic interpretation of the Holy Word was the means of acquainting them more fully with the central truth j of the Christian religion. Usually the r performances were enacted upon rais- I ed platforms, although at times they were given in the form of proces „ sionals. The Luenen version of the Passion Play was first performed in the thlr j teenth century in connection with cathedral services, and for generations thereafter was an annual event during the Lenten seasons, participated In [ and attended by thousands within a radius of many miles from the place j of performance. Joseph Meier, the present Christus portrayer, comes of a long line of this role from early childhood. He Biblical dramatists, being trained for has appeared before more than two 1 thousand audiences in the United States and Canada. Supporting Mr. Meirer is an excellent cast of sacred ' drama players most carefully selected \ by him to give the production the ut most reverent and lucid interpretation. To see Mr. Meier in his characteriza l tion of the human embodiment of Jesus Is not only to come into contact with perfected artistry, but also to experience an inspiration often lack [ ing from both religious and dramatic events. The mood and beauty of the spec tacle, enhanced by delightful inci , dental music, both vocal and Instru mental, superb costuming, scenery and lighting, will doubtless linger long In the minds of those who attended the . opening performance.

Another man acted as the thief’s watcher. A woman depositor saw the theft being made and gave bank officials a description of the two men who made their escape. making it possible for the residents of Delaware and contiguous States to witness this wonderful sacred drama, and at a moderate expense barely commensurate with the large financial outlay necessary to produce it. The engagement ends in Wilmington on Saturday, April 18, and we have no hesitancy in heartily recommending it not only as a further inspiration to those of the Churches of all creeds, but also to the general theatre-going public who enjoy artistic drama In Its moat elevated form.
