The cabinet members had their salaries reduced from $15,000 to $12,750.

The Pekin Times tells the follow- ing: In a otato patch, in the Howard Buchanan garden, are everal healthy potato plants with good potatoes grow- ing on the bottom end, while the top nroduces young green tomatoes, al- most identical with the young toma- oos that are growing on tomato vines which border the potato patch. ] The Buchanans were dumfounded 1 when they discoverd their versatile] vines. True, Mr. Buchanan had once t tried to cross his otatoes and ton,m-' -es, but the- attempt had failed Since the two vegetables re next to each other in the g/rden" his only explana- tion is that at the time of blooming they were in some way cross-pollen- ized. To say the least, the ;innt is puz- zling. Look down another shoot of the plant tomorrow and perhaps one will find a watermelon. And so on. With a bit of cultivafion there seems to be no reason wly a vegetable tree couldn't be grown, one that would yield potatoes at the bottom, toma- toes for lunch, peas and beans when it grew up to be a vine, and grape fruit as a by.product Try thfs in your own back yard and have a truck garden conveniently at your door. The truth of the matter is that the ' bewildering growths are potato seeds which seldom develop but which do, occur, nevertheless. Already mo of them are dropping off .o it seems im- probable that any will develop into nice red tomatoes. miracle, they are so soon in a panic of fear and distrust. With the Red Sea before them and the pursuing Egyptian behind, they complained bit- terly to G<d and to Moses. Thus of- ten in the presence of physical, finan- cial, or other peril do we forget that God is nor limited in resources and is equal to our every, need. Faith is aralyzed by fear. Faith is undermined when, like Israel, we dwell un tbe difficulties before us, substituting reasolx for dependence up on God. While the sound of the char- iot wheels of the Egyptians draws l nearer and nearer and the fear of L, rael reaches despair, the most un- expected of all things takes place. Unable to turn back because of the pursuing host, hemmed in by moun- tains on either side, 1o: the Red Sea opens, a God*given highway stretch- es before them; so that the slow mov- ing ho.t f men, women, children, and beasts of burden may pass over un- harmed and in peace. The experience, as we shall find, s typical of all Israel's journeyings. When they were willing to obey the word of GOd and go forward as the pillar of cloud led tbe way, their foes were always subdued. Nothing could exveed the discomfiture f these Egyptians who, with their chariot wheels removed, sank to death in tbe depths of the sea. The cloud which lightened the way of Israel was dark- nes to the pursuing host. CHECKING UP ON SPORTS Joe Sewell, now with the New York Ymkees, played in 1,103 baseball games.
