And Farmer* Should K««p Livestock as Never Be* fore He Says There la not much of art encouraging nature that addresses Use* ot the farmers at the beginning of this farming season. The weather conditions have been exceedingly unfavorable, there has ben so much rain that ^he farmers have had no opportunity to do any winter plowing or to get out and do the necessary repair work. The ground Is still full of water and the country roads are muddy and bad. in the river bottoms and alluvial sections thousands of bales of cotton are yet In the field unpicked, arid damaged to the extent that it Will hardly pay to pick and gin it on the present price basis. In other sections it has been necessary to take the livestock off the pastures on account of the Soft condition of the pasture lands. Viewed from every angle, the farmers have had but little encouragement to activity, and with the scarcity of money to meet the family necls the outlook has been Indeed dismal to thousands of goou farmers nnd good men who are the salt of the earth; and the very mud-sills of whatever prosperity the state may have in this rear of 1932. The recent legislation jy Congress seems calculated to put a much greater volume of real money into circulation, to reopen many closed banks, expand credits and stimulate business. All of these things will be helpful to the farmers during the year, and especially at the harvesting period, by creating better markets and greater demand for the products of the farm. The government loans to farmers for production purposes will again be available, whereby the farmers will be able to obtain the necessary credit to make crops. If piices are stimulated in the meantime the farmers may be able to pay> off their loanse next fall and find themselves in fair to good shape. At all events, let us all feel hopeful to that end. If business conditions are revived, they will reflect to the advantage of the farmers in better markets for farm products. All farm operations should be planned on a basis of continuing to pro- Of THS SPINAL fcNitwueolM OF 1H6 HIMO COMAWNIOfe WITH R ev GO&&U , AND 6V 61/VMPlHG TrteiR peeT. ...

Mrs. J. R. Card led an interesting study of the last half of the book of Ezekiel. The book of duce abundant feed crops, plenty of ; the food crops, and to the mainaten- ance of cash crops, the farmers should try to provide at least three sources of cash crop income. In case one misses, maybe the others will hit. The very best lands should be planted to the crops planted for cash income, with good seed, good varieties, and followed by good cultivation. The less productive lands would better ba used for pastures and planted to grass and forage crops and in crops that are calculated to build up the soil fertility. The soy bean is one of the best crops for building up the land the coming season, and will make considerable feed. Those farmers who are short of feed should sow spring oats for early,feed. No farmer in Arkansas should have to buy any feed to make a crop this year. Those who have a crop of pigs should give them good attention and Congressmen Receive Wet Petitions fiTLEGoYS OFTEN T&.V To , _ MfcKE THEMSELVES BK5<35R.

This spring is a good time to trade and traffic for purebred cat- tie and hogs. Every farm should have a purebred male of some breed of hogs and cattle. By the use of purebred males the herds of hogs and cattle will soon be built up into good grades that are profitable to grow and keep. By all means try to get some good foundation stock and keep it on the increase. Cheaper By Air WASHINGTON.—According to the U. S.
