Halliburton Shop Is45Years01d Father and Son Built Up Famous Sheet Metal Works for Hope •The finest tradition of the industrial craftsman appears in the history of Halliburton's Sheet Hetal Works, 116 East Division street— where a single business has been carried on by father and son for 45 years. The late Cory Halliburton founded a tin shop here half n century ago, when Hope was n s tiny village. And 32 years ago a newspaper writer, just as today, was arranging nn advertisement and writing a story for Halll- hurlon's Sheet Metal Works in the first edition of this newspaper. Today the business is owned and operated by Ira Halliburton. He joined his father in 1019, after returning from the war. Ira learned IMS trade under the master craftsman of his own family, and supplemented It with experience and observation in other shops. Striking out from his home town before the wnr, Ira worked in the tin shops of Tulsa, throughout Oklahoma and Missouri, and after his army service returned home to become his father's partner. There are usually three men in the shot today. They manufacture tnctal roofs, ventilators, gutters, cornices and tanks for buildings in 20 Southwest Arkansas counties. In that shop you may see the parts of-a metal roof for a school building in Magnolia, or a ventilator for a courthouse in Arkadelphia. In this place is a magic wand that whips flat metal into familiar shapes, and builds for any man a special job that often cannot be bought anywhere else. Every season the farmers of Southwest Arkansas' buy a few sorghum- pans at Hope stores, and have about as many more made in Ira Halliburton's Metal Works. But the summer of 1931 there was the world's greatest crop of sorghum, thanks to the memory of last year's drouth—and there was a run o sorghum-pans that may never be equalled. All the ready-made stocks in Hope were cleaned out. and the farmers checked it up to Ira. He made and .delivered on special order 3C big sorghum-pans, some of r lhe them the largest .ever .constructed : ifi this part of the country. 1 Anothtrj. business that the metal ;shop has pioneered in Hope is the re- 'palr, and rebuilding of, automobile radiators.

They appeal- to be of red stone tile. Actually they are of metal. This light, permanent roof, needs no special bracing such as may be required by the heavier materials. Yet it gives a beautful touch to many a public building and private home. School Takes Over Paper to Raise Student Fund - CRESTON, Wash.-(tf>)—Creston high school has taken over this town's only newspaper in the hope of reducing the student body indebtedness. For several years the students have given dances, used athletic department surpluses and probed other income sources without complete success. Mrs. Inez Creston, business manager of The News, resigned and the owner permitted the students to take over the management. A group will take charge of all local news, advertsiing and circulation, World Recovery Due, Says Grandi Italian Foreign Minister Feels 'Power of United Action' in America NEW YORK.— (ff) —His confidence in world recovery, said' Dino Grandi, Italian foreign minister, in an address Monday night, "has been intensified and strengthened to a degree as I never dared to hope" since he arrived en American soil. "Here I have felt, in wour statesmen and in your people, that manhood, that intelligence, that power of united action on which your great nation was built and which represent today one of the basic forces of our civilization," he said. "AH who love and understand this civilization can formulate but one wish, that the vital energies of America and Europe become united ana" that'the common cause of labor and peace amongst men shall triumph." In that manner the black-bearded ycung diplomat concluded a speech before the Council of B'oreifm Relations at the Ritz-Carlton hotel on the first day of a four-day visit here before returning to Italy. • •'1 believe we' have reached a'stage i.of, civilization ,tvhen we can discuss '{DFOblehplii qf international-jflplicy freely Syi)fhou£>rurining &e danger:.of oufirc- .marks being interpreted "as criticisms of other nations," he said. "And 'when I say that in the nost- war years grave mistakes have be^n made in the attitude taken toward the problems of peace and reconstruction, you certainly will understand my re- narks as being of a general charac- er. The fact is Europe has experienced in these years grave economic and 1 roltical troubles which a more inteil- gent, more moderate, I might say a norc pnnerous policy would have avoided." Italy's disarmament policy, ho said, is based on justice. "We have declared that Italy was re-idy to reduce lire armaments," he continued, "to reduce her military budget to the lowest level, provided an equitable balance of military strength could he reached umonc nations. To this principle we are and will remain faithful." He cited statistics to show the arma- monts of 27 nations had' increased Sl.- COO.OOO in outlay between 1913 and 1928 and asked: "Ought we be indifferent to such an alarming phenomenon?"

About 5,000 persons were gathered outside the Pennsylvania railroad station to greet Signor Grandi and his wife as they arrived from Baltimore at an hour when the streets were oowded with office workers out for lunch. The station was guarded by 150 uniformed police, a number of plain clothes men and 25 railway police, hut there was no disorder. Russian Wheat Is Seen as Threat Spring Wheat Makes Three-Fourths of Russian Crop Acreage By FRANK I. WHEELER (Associated Press Farm Editor) WASHINGTON.—(/P)—In view of the Soviet government's export practice last year and its avowed policy of paying industrial debts from the sale of agricultural commodities, trade observers still see a thr'eat in Russian grain. For one thing, the Russians seeded 5,000,000 acres more spring wheat alone in 1931 than the year before when they produced 1,000,000,000 bushels of wheat for the largest yields in the world and exported almost 100,000,000 bushels. Spring wheat cakes up three-fourths of the Russian crop and is the chief source of Soviet export grain. It is 1931 spring wheat which Russia has, been exporting and so far this year' f\\c has shipped out more than half the total amount last^year. There has ben drouth in the spring wheat area. Once that meant ruin in Russia, but the Soviets have applied, scientific farming methods—the deep' plowing, correct fertilizing and pro-^ per cultivation depended upon ; tQj counteract drouth.- •• ••'•', 'Theii* spring wheat area this year was larger than the entire acreage of till wheats in the United States. Soviet fall seeding of grain, which includes winter wheat, was estimated at. 82,408,000 acres up to October 15. While that was but 78 per cent of the ambitious "plan" it was 82 per cent of last year's total winter sown j acreage. If Russia follows her 1930 program she may be expected to export from :his crop. Winter wheat around the Black Sea was of excellent quality then and early 1931 exports of it kept Russian grain coming into world markets for the entire year. The enormity of Russian seeding may be seen in the preliminary estimate of 235,443,000 acres of all grains in 1931 compared with 213,496,000 in 19HO, an increase of 10 per cent, Russian wheat in itself is not considered sufficient to break the world other exporting countries is that it takes up the slack when there is a market. Its threat to the United States and crop failure elsewhere and dams back its own weight in the exports of other countries—chiefly the United States and Canada. Since Russia has seen a huge shipper of grain unsold to the United Kingdom recent cancellation of forward commitments is not always considered significant. She frequently withdrew from the market last year only to come back when her boats and storehouses cleared. "Platinum Blonde" Audacious Comedy Arkansas Seed to An Unnamed Buyer St. Francis Association Savs. Price $2 Above Memphis Figure MKMPHIS, Tenn.—{#•)—Announce- ment'was made Fridav night by W. B. Rhodes, secretary of the St, Fl'an- ch? (Arkansas) Delta Cottonseed Association, that a price $2 a ton aboye the price paid by Memphis mills, had been obtained for 40 cars of Arkansas fi°ed marketed through the association. Negotiations seeking a market elsewhere for cottonseed produced in the Arkansas delta region was undertaken by the association several days ago because of dissatisfaction expressed by planters and ginners in that section over quotations given by mills here. Millmen here countered Friday night with detailed figures of the revenue to them of products obtained in support of their contention that no higher price could be paid here for Arkansas seed.

Brightly audacious, ' romantically dramatic and cleverly and generously humorous is the attraction that opens Thursday at the Saenger theatre "Platinum Blonde," produced by Columbia pictures, is the film that stands up under,- this barrage of virtues, with one or its dominant virtues being the performance of Robert Williams, who did so nobly in "Rebound." and "Devotion" and tops these with his biggest in "Platlrium Blonde.' What a choice sense of humor this boy has. Every movement and every bit of dialogue he utters contributes to what may easily be considered cn<3 of the seasons perfect screen characterizations. He has been aided in no small measure by the ultra-sophisticated dialogue that Robert Riskin provided for the story by Harry E. Chandlee and Douglas W. Church- i ill. But there ars ways and ways of interpretation and Williams has captured the way! The charming and beautiful Loretta Young and the glamorous Jean Harlow are the two young ladies who get Williams into and out of complications in a r-tory of how a delightful independent person—a genuine "free soul"— gets caught in a gilded cage and is pretty nearly smothered. Jean Harlow is the society heiress .who marries the careless, care-free, happy reporter because he is So different from any ..of the men in her • get, She;then.proceeds.to pattern,him after them. Loretta. '.Young, the sob sister on Williams' paper who has loved him all along, has to stand by and content herself with being his sympathetic pal. Eventually, however, the young man rebels and breaks out of his cage and finds love and sympathy with the pal whose feminine qualities he had been utterly blind to until his vote's jealousy called his attention to them. The production is beautifully mounted. Sets of unusual splendor 'orm the background and some novel camera angles and effects are introduced by Joseph Walker. ' Jo Swerling as the adaptor of the Chandlee- Churchill story and Dorothy Howell "The mill that bought the seed has insisted that we not reveal' its identity," he said. C. C. Twist, association president, said that complaints against Memphis mills were being prepared for presentation before W. W. Sheppard of the Federal Trade Commission who is conducting hearings at Memphis. Sought Agreement Over Carrier Wages Failure NEW YORK.—(/P)—The effort of railway labor leaders and railway presidents to arrive at an agreement on wages for the carriers' employees apparently broke down Sunday. D. B. Robertson, chairman of .the ailway labor executives' associatio.n, nformed Daniel Willard, chairman of ic special committee of railroad, ek- cutives, that labor could! not accept he proposed 10 per cent reduction n wages because if was noK given jroper "assurance that the money hus saved would be applied either to ncrease employment, or even to sta- nlize existing employment."
