Connections With Foreign
Countries Is Forecast.
Washington.—The “telephone uto-
pla,” or a time when all telephcnes in
-all nations can be connected, is rapid-
1y nearing in the opinion of engineers,
who, recently celebrated the fifty-
seventh anniversary of use of the
speaking device in the United States.
Already telephone users in the
‘United States can converse with users
In 40 other countries located on the |
six other continents. These connec-
tions comprise a network of 32,750,000
"telephones, or more than 92 per cent
tof all such instruments in the world.
{It will be only a short time until vir-
ually all of the remaining connections
ill be possible in the opinion of gov-
ronment communicaiions experts.
4 Four Countries Left.
There remain only four countries
ving more than 100,000 telephones
ith which the United States does not
ve connections. These are China,
Japan, Russia, and South Africa. The
(link with the last named is likely to
{be completed within the current year |
‘and that with Japan should require
tonly a relatively few months more, ac-
«cording to Stanley Shoup of the com-
imunication division of the Commerce
All this development has come since
Harel 10, 1876, when Alexander Gra-
ham: Bell, then a youthful scientist,
cand 'a companion conversed for the
¢first time in this country through elec-
“trically wired apparatus in Boston.
Today four radiotelephone circuits
{connect the United States with Eu-
drope, and it is expected that a trans.
fatlantic telephone cable will be com-
4pleted during this year.
Most of the international develop
ent of telephony has come since
At that time there were only
0 countries connected with the
4 United States. They were Cuba and
nada. The United States is now
connected with virtually every country
Yin Europe, with Argentina, Chile, Uru-
Jguay, Mexico, and Cuba in Latin Amer-
lea; with Java, Sumatra, and Indo-
"China in Asia; with Ceuta in Spanish
Morocco, Africa; with New Zealand
and Australia.
During the last year communications
/were made with Hawali, thus thrust-
{ing vocal communications nearly 2,000
mites out into the Pacific on the way
to the final goal of China and Japan.

ed States as a feature of
the nation-wide George Washington
Bicentennial Celebration, will be
coined in large enough gquantites
to satsfy a normal demand, offi

| the United States George Washing-
| ton Bicntennial Commission. It is
| expected that the quarter will be
' ready for distribution before June 1.
~The design of the new coin was
approved by Secretary of the Treas-
ury Ogden L. Mills, from more than
a hundred models, many of them
submitted by leading American ar-
tists. It was executed by John Flan-
| nigan, New York sculptor and the
| designer of the Department of Agri-
culture World War Memorial.
The obverse of the new coin bears
the portrait of George Washington
in profile. Over the head appears the
word “Liberty,” and below it is
stamped the date “1932.” To one
side is the motto “In God We
The principal design on the other
side is a spread eagle with the in-
scription “United States of Ameri-
ca” and “E Pluribus Unum” above,
{and “Quarter Dollar” below. An
| olive branch also appears on the
eagle to complete a stately, digni-
fied design. The new coin is exactly
the same size, weight and fineness
as the present quarter dollar.
Th George Washington quarter is
the first coin of issue ever
to bear the image of the First
President. It was auhorized hy spe-
| cial act of Congress, making it pos-
| sible for the to share in
the Bicentennial Celebration.
As a coin of regular issue the
| George W quarter will re-

| dollar will be coined for the next
| twenty-five years unless authorized
| by special act of Congress.

and Philadelphia the coins will be
placed in circulation tbrough the

—Parsnips delight in a rich, deep,
mellow soil in order that the roots
may grow long and straight. Un-
desirable roots result when hard soil
is reached. For this reason the soil
must be plowed or spaded to a depth
of 12 to 15 inches and a liberal
d of fine, well-rotted manure
worked into it. Fresh manure tends
to cause sprawling, ill-shaped roots
and should not be used. Ground that
was heavily fertilized the past
season is best for good

Ample cane growth and vigor of vine
are necessary.
—Grain feeding should be contin-
ued for cows on pasture. Early pas-
ture grass is high in protein content
and very succulent. High-producing
cows cannot consume enough to
meet their needs. Use a mix-
ture containing about 12 per cent
protein and feed enough to keep the
cows from getting thin. Usually
about one pound of grain to 5 or 6
pounds of milk is enough.

Then one evening the
telephone rang. It was
Jim. “Just wanted to
chat,” he told his Mother.
“How're you and Dad?”
For several minutes fam.
