It is hard to get far enough away that you cannot hear of fruit from the Brushies. •In this connection we pause to say a word about the Brushy Mountain Fruit Growers’ association. The orchardists are organized into a compact group and work in unity. Needless to say that they are reaping benefits by co-operation. They make co-operative purchases of fertilizers and sprays, thus saving much hard cash. The association furnishes a means by which the advice of the best specialists can be provided for all without expense. A representative of the exten sion service may come to Wilkas and through the medium of the organization he can contact all the orchardists. Producers of other products would do well to observe the methods of organiza tion and co-operation. Agriculture has suffered more than anything else because of haphazard methods. Grand Jury Report The semi-annual report of the grand jury is the one official way of letting the public know the status of county affairs, particularly the condition of county prop erty and management of public offices. It is interesting to study the reports of grand juries. For instance, the Iasi one examined 116 bills of indictment and out of that number 72 were true bills and 54 not true bills. This seems to indicate that there was quite a bit of indictment under way that was either not comprehensive enough to go before the court or was of a frivilous and malicious nature. Apparent ly the grand jury did a good job of culling out and keeping many frivilous indict ments from reaching the stage of trial. The report of the county home is also interesting in that it denotes that things are in good condition at that institution. The 25 inmates in the county home are well fed and cared for and the only recom mendation in regard to inmates’ care was that they should be fed whole millk instead of skim milk. The recommenda tion that more fruit trees be planted is a timely ona An abundance of fruit for the inmates would be quite an asset, "^e I recommendations in regard to enlarging the vaults in the courthouse are not ^iss.

The weather tiiis year haa been about the most variable ever ex perienced by flue-cured tobacco growers in the state, he added. In June the extremely hot, dry weather hurt the older tobacco a great deal, although it did not seriously affect the younger leaf. In the rainy period that followed, the young plants made rapid gains. The wet weather in July caus ed about as big a change in leaf spread as has ever been witness ed in this state, Floyd said, and a large growth was put out. Had the weather been favorable during the latter part of July and the early part of August, he commented, some of the yields would have been exceptionally heavy this year. Ford Reconditions Automobile Motors [mkm? ^ttumy f«6t would be needed to atop a car witii four-wheel brakes moving at'a speed of 40 miles per hour on an ordinary high- ■ way. Two per cent of the drivers answer ed ten feet or less; 15.9 per cent answer ed 11 to 20 feet; the heaviest majority, 2S.2 per cen.t, answered 21 to 80 feet, and 14.1 per cent answered 61 to 60 feet. The true answer is 80 feet—and it was^ given by less than 6 per cent of the drivers. Only a minority of motorists realize that, no matter how good a car’s brakes, it is impossible to stop witiiin 5(1 feet—that a car going 40 miles an hour will skid farther than that with locked wheels. 'This shows the need of “schooling” drivers and teaching them something about the powerful machines they operate. In many states the ownership and use of firearms are strictly regulat^ by law while a motor car can be driven in almost any manner by even the most irrespon sible persons. An intelligent driver that cares for his own safety and the welfare of others will learn ^bout his machine. Adequate knowl edge of the limitations and capabilities of the motor car is a fundamental accident prevention. The person who drives care fully enough that he knows he will be able to stop should something unforeseen get in the way is truly a good river. We hereby put an idea Into Secretary Hull’s head.

By BRUCE BARTON WICLIPF AND TYNDAMl So the Bible passed Into Latin and finally into English. There had been partial transla tions from the Latin from the time of the Ven erable Bede and King Alfred, but the name of the great English pioneer translator is John Wiclif, who lived from 1324 to 1384. As a translation his work was of secondary value, for he, too, used the Latin and not the original tongues, but he put the Bible into the hands of the reading public of England, which was small but potent, and made it what it Is today, the Book of the common people. One hundred and fifty years after Wiclif came William Tyndale, who undertook a trans lation of the New Testament from the original Greek. People were horror-stricken by the impiety of the Idea. He had to flee to Ham burg, and never again set foot on his native shore. Against fierce opposition he continued his work. Printing had been invented, and Tyndale determined to "make every plow-boy in England know th© New Testament.” His book, printed by Caxton, had to be smuggled Into England and was read by stealth. With such asinine drivel as the following, written by the pious Friar Buckingham, Us circulation was obstructed. Where Scriptures salth, ‘‘No man that layeth his hand to the plow and looketh back is fit for the kingdom of God’’; will not the plowman when he readeth these words apt forthwith to cease from his plow, and then where will be the sowing and,the harvest? Likewise also whereas the baker readeth, “A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump,” will he not be forthwith too sparing in the use of leaven, to the great Injury of our herlth? And so also when the simple man reads the words, “If thine eye offend thee, pluck it out and cast it from thee,” incontient he will pluck out his eyes, and so the whole realm will he fall of blind men, to the great decay of the na tion and the manifest loss of the king’s grace. And thus by reading of the holy Scriptures will the whole realm come into confusion. Tyndall himself was treacherously dealt with and arrested, and lay for eighteen months in Antwerp for no crime other than that of giv ing to the people a truer version of the Scrip tures. On October 6, 1536, he was strangled and his body was burned. Thus have Christian folk welcomed the better and more accurate translations of thi Book which teaches kind ness, tolerance, forbearance and the open mind and thus do they still denounce those men of learning. King James 1 of England and VI of Scotland saw that he could not prevent the reading of the Bible by the^people, and he determined to get credit for what his scholars told him was much needed, a reliable translation into good English, for all the previons versions had been made under- condiUons that rendered, 'echoiarlT: tTMtaent imposalblel^ i j" Application of scientific pro duction methods to engine recon ditioning A? practiced 'by the Ford Motor company, is consid ered by experts the post notable advance in service twhnique of this decade. It produces some fling new in the automotive world—a reconditioned motor in every respect the equal of a new one. And it is done with the very hearty co-operation of the dealer, who is relieved of heavy investments for service equip ment and obtains a potent argu ment to assist in sales of new cars and trucks. : . In brief, the operation m^ly be described as complete disassembly of the motor and its components, followed by replacement or refin- ishing of all worn parts of sur- face."The operation is exactly the same as the building of a new motor. Elvery bearing surface is fitted to precisely the same limit of tolerance as a pew motor. In part the assembly operation is done on the new motor line, al- J’tough natilally most of it is conducted on a special disassem bly and assembly line. To provide sure control of the policy that every part must fit to the original tolerance limit, those parts which are to be used again are returned to the factory de partment in which they were first made, for gauging, either acept- ing or rejecting. There is thus no pressure on the reconditioning line to attempt a d.ingerously high level of parts recovery. What is new in the Ford V-8 reconditioned engine ? Pistons, '>iston rings, cylinder head studs, nuts valves, valve as- semblira (except spring, many of which^re 0. K.L main bearings, connecting rod bearings, camshaft bearings, cam gears. In almost any given dxample a great many other parts will be new, as all those which fail to meet gauge and other tests are replaced.
