that no one person could handle the job and even make a pretense at run ning his own business In this connection he explained iat the work is departmentized and in charge of each department a qualified individual has almost ab solute authority Each department head be con inued becomes a specialist in bis i field andthe rest of us stand by and let him be hisown boss Mr Nolls principal interest it seems is in the and girls work and it is doubtful if any de velopment in the history of the fair association has brot him as much personal satisfaction as the comple tion and inauguration

the fact that awnings and every other nook and corner were brot Into use to provide additional stall room The writer spent an hour and a half walking down thru the dif ferent barns and he felt that to

Sept Germanys new mystery warship 10000 ton craft mounting 3ix 11 inch guns and capable of a wide cruising radius at high speed destined to play an im portant part in anyfuture naval limitation conference that deals with capital lighting ships In thejudgment of some Ameri can navalofficers this would be especially soif there should be a move in 1936 to abolish the battle ship as has been suggested unof ficially in recent months since the of the present Anglo American negotiations for limiting the tonnage of auxiliary fleet craft Without Limitation With Germany possessing six ships of the characteristics of tha onenow completed it is argued in naval circles that the other aea powers would be unable to dp with their own capital ship fleets without changes in the agreement which fixes eight inches as the limit of the bore of guns to be mounted on other than battle ships Under the terms of the of Versailles Germany is permitted to build six ships of 10000 standard tons or about 12500 tons displace ment without limitation of uny kind as to the size of the guns that might be mounted on them Has Made Advance At the time the treaty was neg otiated and even at the time of the Washington arms conference in 1921 the general naval thot of the world apparently was that an eight inch gun was about the largest that could be placed on 10000 ton ships without sacrificing speed cruising radius and defensive ar mor While comparatively little is known about the new German craft by the other navies it is the Ger manclaim that its new design is entirely practical If such is the case it has made a bigadvance in warship design and one that may make the nation a factor in future capital ship limitation conferences Were Highly Effective The s be 11 inch guns of the Ger man craft are mounted In three ar mored turrets two forward and one aft Admittedly this ship would be far superior to the 10000 ton 8 inch craft of the Am erican and British navies and to all practical purposes it is a capital ship aris MJS A WPUY these stockings in Paris asked Customs officer as he went through trunks at pier Gold Stripe Chiffons and I got them right in my home correctly heeled smartly
