The path of the marchers was the shortest in the history of Legion parades scarcely two miles. The route lav between long rows of newly-erected grandstands along palm-lined B'scayne boulevard and passed the reviewing stand before Na tional Commander Edward A. Hayes and his distinguished guests. Automobiles were barred from much of the city’s downtown area that the parade might form and dis perse without interference from vehicles.

It was sighted from an airplane. At noon it had been seen over Cleve land, and fellow birdnicn who sighted it said that apparently all was well with the husband and wife crew. Lou Gravis, a United Air Lines pilot who sighted the huge silver bag over Cleveland said its altitude was “very high, ’ and Beckwood J. Hill, chief of the ground crew here, said he believed the Piccards were 40,000 feet or more high. Gravis saw the balloon at 11:45 a. ni., eastern time. At 10:10 a. m., an American Air Line pilot, S. Stephens, reported sighting the stratospheric fliers between Sandusky and Loraine, Ohio, which meant they had complet ed the hazardous flight across Lax Eric. rv The Piccards took off from Ford airport at 6:58 a. m., the gondola bare ly clearing a clump of trees as Mrs. Piccard, the only licensed woman balloon pilot in the United States, hastily dumped 50 pounds of lead bal last.

This year a grower who had a bae of 10 acres was allotted six acres to plant. Next year he probably will bo allotted seven and a half acres, ac cording to Dean I. O. Schaub, of Stau College. The increase in allotments to be allowed is due largely to the fact that the cotton program has removed most of the surplus cotton that was re sponsible for the low prices or 1932 and growers can now start producing as much cotton as is consumed each year, the dean explained. The exact size of the allotments will not be announced, Schaub added, unti the AAA cotton section finishes its study of the cotton situation, includ ing both domestic and foreign mar kets. Growers who have already signed contracts will keep the contracts they have, while non-signers will be given another chance to join the pro gram and participate in the cental and benefit payments.
