Killing Bugs and Hoeing
Corn Great Lesson for Boys
"The domocracy that comes from
close association with potato bugs and
shooting corn." This, in substance, is
one big result that will come from the
war, as expressed by W. H. Clerti
mons, state superintendent of public
instruction, speaking with regard to
the thousands of the state's boys who
have recently left the school room
to take up work on the farm in the
interest of national defense.
"One of the big lessons I see in
the war for boys of school age," he
says, "is not the military knowledge
gained, but the enthusiasm aroused
for farming, for cultivation of the
ground, for seeing things take root
and grow. I am not sure that mili
tary exercises in the grades and in
high school are advisable; in fact. I
would recommend rather that some
form of physical drill be substituted.
tiut 1 do think it a good thing that
a war has happened along to bring
to our people the. need of careful cul
tivation of the soil. And it is emi
nently proper that this need be im
pressed upon the younger genera
tion." Manawa Park Opens Today

Besides the many flowers and the
color scheme of green and white, flags
will decorate the buildings. The pa
triotic atmosphere will be carried out
further in the afternoon matinee and
evening concert by Green's band. This
band will play every evening this sea
son, with matinees on Sundays and
holidays. Another patriotic concert
will be played Wednesday, Decora

Note What the Super-Six Did
Perhaps the Hudson record which

A seven-passenger Hudson Super-Six
broke he best record made up to last
summer by nearly 24 days from San
Francisco to New York. Then turned
around and broke the record from New
York to San' Francisco. It completed
the round trip in 10 days and 21 hours
over 7000 miles, including mountains
and desert. And thus twice won Amer

of size or class in the Pike's Peak hill
climb, by a Hudson Super-Six Special, in
which 20 racing cars .participated.
They Prove Endurance
We made these tests just to prove en
durance. Nothing else is so important
to motor car owners. It is not how
well a car will run in ordinary use that
counts. How long and how little atten
tionhow free from mechanical needs
and excessivefuel and lubrication charges, .
is the main thing. These tests have
demonstrated that, measured by other
standards, there is a yet unknown limit
to the endurance of a Hudson Super-Six.
What the Super-Six has proved, in
performance and endurance, has never
before been done.
