THIS WEEK'S BIBLE THOUGHT -3
A SPIRIT FOR OUR J)AY: Let
all bitterness, and wrath, and anger;
and clamour, and evil speaking be put
way from you, with au malice; anc
be ye kind one to another, tender
hearted, forgiving one another, even
as God -for Christ's sake hath lor
given yoUrf Ephesians 4:81-32.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
It seems such a little while since
we wished our friends happy and
prosperous new. 'year as 1935 waf
ushered in.: And iter will soon b
dawning; another year. Only: a fev
mora days and 1936 win be gone.
What has taken place during the year
Is now history. k.;k.:
As we reflect on what the old yetf-
brought, of pleasure and pain; of Joy
. and sorrow, ofunshtoe and shadow
we realise that the new yew thai, jf ,
. coming, like all the years that Itavrl
passed, win bring ip Wiff4

And so as the New Yer wmes 'ir
and we wish you happiness 'and pro
perity, we also hope that those of n
who must pass through the shadowr
this year may do so with faith a(
courage; that, those of us who mee'
with disappointment may meet i'
bravely, so that as the years roll or
we shall be prepared, even If disastc
overtakes us, to still carry on-
In the words of the poet:
"Not enjoyment and not sorrow if
our destined end or way, but to act
that each tomorrow finds us better
AAA Will Protect
A J A
lA plans to base its 1936
B.a istment payments on a raw
a ; .
considerably Higher than five cents r
pound, according to J. F. Criswell, of
The new cotton contracts stipulate
that the minimum payments will br
five cents a pound on the average
production of the land withdrawn
from cotton cultivation.
The exact amount of the adjust
ment payments next year will be de
termined by. the price of cotton an
amount of money available, Criswe"
said, but it is safe to say the pay
ments will be well above the mrn'
The AAA plans to protect the con
tract signers in case the price goer
down next year, Criswell said, and for
this reason provision is being made to
. increase the adjustment payments! "
, If the Bankhead act is not; con-,
tihued next year, he explained, grow
ers not under contract may expand
their" production enough to cut the
price down to a low level, possib':
six or seven cents a pound.
Growers with contracts will receive
adjustment payments in addition tc
the Income from the sale of , their
cotton, and will be able to get a fair
return for the'r crop, CrisweH point
ed out. ... "J .' ''
Those without contracts will get
only' the amount for which they car
sell their cotton on the market' ;
If the Bankhead act is discontinued,
he went on, contract signers Iwill.b
' Allowed to sell all the cotton they can
raise on their allotted acreage. .
A grower may adjust, his 19.V
acreage by SO to 45 per cent of his
base acreage, and receive adjustment
i payments accordingly..

PARTY GETS FILMS
OF WILD BIRD LIFE
Make the Trip With Sound
Trucks to Get Records.
Ithaca, N. Y. Two motor trucks,
bearing specially devised motion pic
ture cameras and sound apparatus,
were used in a 15,000-mile exploration of
wild bird haunts in the United States,
made by the Cornell-American museum
and recently completed. The expedi
tion, which obtained valuable bird rec
ords, was sponsored 4 by Albert B,
Brand, associate In ornithology at Cor
nell, and left Ithaca last February
under the direction of Arthur A Allen.
The story of the unusual quest is
told In the Cornel Alumni News which
characterizes the results as "undoubt
edly the most complete collection of
pictures and sound records of birds
ever made." ' -- .' ',
Such uncommon species as the ivory
billed woodpecker, the limpkln, sand
hill crane, wild turkey, bald eagle,
golden eagle, prairie falcon, trumpeter
swan and lesser) prairie chicken-were
included. Many of the recordings will
be transferred to phonograph records
to be available to school children and
nature students, the negative to be
permanently preserved at the univer
sity. Meet Difficulties.
Besides Doctor Allen, Mr. Brand and
Dr. George M.. Sutton, the party In
cluded Paul P. Kellogg, instructor in
ornithology, who.-with " Mr." Brand and
Prof. True McLean, electrical engi
neer, designed and assembled the
sound apparatus; and James T. Han-

two Inches from the diaphragm, and $
good . record was made,' above the
sound of the stream. ." ' " .'
j Similarly, In tyordlng jhe dance of
the lesser,. pralrTr chicken the micro
phone was so. placed, that the patter
of the bird's jteet could be distinctly
beard above 'all: other sounds.' ! In
Louisiana the sound truck :C became
hopelessly bogged In the "gumbo mud"
and it was necessary to transfer all
the delicate equipment to a - farm
wagon and with, four mules haul It
seven miles through the swamp to the
haunts of the ivory-billed woodpecker
and there set up the laboratory In a'
tent Here' almost perfect recorders
of the voice of this - nearly . txttoct
species were obtained.

nearly extinct trumpeter swan, a few
of which still persist In northwestern
Wyoming and eastern Montana. After
several days of study, however, a

to catch the activities of the parent
swans and their young and record the
calls of this vanishing bird, which at

Records were made with the birds

Right of Owner, to Raze

tear his own house down? . ' .
- That question Is to be decided by
the Seine Civic tribunal as the con
verse of a suit against a young archi
tect because the man for whom he
built a house tore it down eight days
after K was finished. -1 .
'i ;The architect's plea is that he has a
moral right to his creation which per
mits him to protest against Its destrno
tlon, and that he has suffered actual
damage because bis . reputation will be
affected. ' by the- natural , conclusion
drawn that If his work was destroyed
It must have contained serious faults.
. The proprietor's case Is simply that
after the house was built he was of
fered a larger sum for the property
without . encumbrance. . Therefore he.
