American opera the Chicago City opera company feeling that americans will lint a new taste for grand opera if it is Sung Iii language j hey can understand and based on themes that Are familiar to them has opened a Competition for an opera by an american composer based on a Romance of the civil War. The winning work will be presented by the opera next fall. Now while this Competition at first glance provokes somewhat droll visions of fat italian tenors garbed As Robert e. Lee and u. S. Grant straining for High notes at Appomattox and of warbling a a supers trailing about the stage in the Guise of Job stuarts troopers it must be added that the idea is fundamentally sound As they used to say. If grand opera is Ever to become popular in America in the Way it is popular for example in Italy it has got to go american. What sort of work this particular Competition May bring Forth is known Only to the gods of music of course but the idea is a healthy step in the right direction. Side glances just where to hit and i could see that red bathing suit too a Martha smiled. A mind if i just lie Here a minute and close my eyes i feel kind of the Cattail Outlook the probability that the 1937 Cotton acreage will show a substantial increase Over that of 193b, indicated by statements of planting intentions by Farmers Here and elsewhere is not necessarily a cause for alarm. Farmers should realize however that if there should he for example a 15 per cent increase in acreage Over the Belt and if Droutas and other unfavourable conditions which have contributed to holding Down production in recent years should be absent this year the inevitable result will be a crop of such size As almost certainly to halt the upward trend in the Price of Cotton and quite possibly to Force it substantially lower. In View of greatly improved Market conditions there would seem to be no danger of a return of 1933 prices. But it should be remembered that the buying Power of a Dollar is considerably less than it was in 1932. The present Price of Cotton is not above parity with the prices of commodities which Cotton producers must buy. To increase production to an extent that would make Cotton cheap in relation to other commodities would place the Cotton Fanner at an economic disadvantage. The outlawing of the aaa made it impossible for the government to protect the Farmers Price parity. It can Only suggest and to a limited extent subsidize a program designed to help maintain that parity. But each individual Cotton grower can do a great Ileal to maintain his own economic Security. He May for example consider the Cost to him of increased Cotton production not Only in terms of its possible effect upon Price which of course is insignificant so far As his individual operations Are concerned but he can also measure it in terms of the Market Price of the Corn and other teed which he might have grown on land which he planted in Cotton and in terms of the effect upon the productive value of his land of an excessive Cotton acreage. If these latter factors Are Given the consideration they deserve the danger of a disastrous overproduction of Cotton will be greatly reduced. Tyrell it could happen. It was happening now in hundreds of places All Over the world. At this moment hundreds of women were realizing it could happen just As she was now. It gave her a queer fatalistic feeling to think that v was one of them. A coming Back from the beam that afternoon she began to realize it. Gerry Neal a kiss was still on her lips and she had sat there remembering it. She had hurried to the trailer to change for dinner Happy to be getting into her Blue gown and slippers wanting her hair to be right. And now she and this Man were dancing together without words Content to let the music speak for them not caring that they were strangers in this Gay ballroom and could dance with no one else. A but i let him see it a Martha warned herself. A a in be got to find Bettye in be got to know what Gerry Neal there was another warning which slipped unwanted into her brain. A warning not to let herself in for anything not to be Hurt. A warning so Many women have refused and so few have heeded when the time came. Suddenly Neal looked Down at her. A a you re very quiet Martha. I can Call you Martha a a a you be already done it once before a she told him. A on the Beach this afternoon after you yanked me Neal laughed. A i guess i was too excited to notice. Anyhow that proves it comes natural and not for he looked at her oddly. A but you remembered a a yes a Martha said. A a a.

Perhaps one of the most important reasons the world hovers on the Brink of War today is that its great Powers apparently prefer the Pound of cure to tin1 ounce of prevention. That Uncle Sam is not exempt from blame is indicated by estimates recently placed before a House committee that he is spending about 50 times As much on his army and Navy As he is on Ilia state department.
