The odds definitely have been against the British from the very minute France surrendered, But thanks to the Greeks and the failures of the Italian fieet, British odds have improved considerably, though they are not yet 50-50. NEW MEXICAN PRESIDENT In the dispatches about the inaug- uration (performed December 1) of Mexico's new president, Manuel Avila Camacho, nothing is said of his mother, who stands upright in her grave in the state of Puebla. Senora Camacho de Avila, mother of four sons, was one of the most colorful and dynamic women in the history of Mexico. She died only a Year ago, and her last words were to direct that she should be buried upright in the ground. "The Avila Camachos," she said, "have always stood on their feet." Accordingly, the coffin was put into the ground in an upright posi. tlon, in the town of Tezuitlan, state of Puebla. If the rate of seeding red clover is eight pounds or more per acre and iJ it is sown properly 30 to 40 per cent of hard seed will r~ot injure the re- sulting stand but rather help thick- en it. For spring or early summer sow ing, scarification of red clover seed is necessary to reduce the number lot hard seeds And if a fourth or more are hard, the usual rate of seeding may have to be increased If small grain, hay or other legume crops are to follow, volunteer sweel clover plants will reduce the quality of the seed harvested.

Let- ters are pouring in, many with en- closures of cash. A Mississippi school teacher sends five dollars; an unknown man from Arkansas sends six dollars; Oscar L. Johnson and Harry L. Carpel, both of Washington, send $100 each. The total has re,ached $40,000, all forwarded to New York, where a special committee is handling con- tributions. One letter comes from a retired army engineer in Atlanta, who says, "I could still pass for 40," and asks to enlist in the Greek army. In New Brunswick, N.

Justice Murphy walks the long way round to his office, going first to the Wash- ington monument. The 25,000 government workers who daily lunch in government res- taurants in Washington consume an- nually 187,000 pounds of butter, 187,- 000 dozen eggs, 135,640 pounds of coffee, 2,446,336 bottles of milk, and 43,268 gallons of ice cream. is finally divided by 300 to obtain the approximate weight of a cow. In the case of horses, the number oh. mined after dividing by 300 is cue. tomarily increased by 50 pounds. -The proper length measurement for hogs is taken from the base of the tail over the back to a point midway between the ears. Also, the proper dividing figure is 400 rather than 300.
