SID HENRY TELEPHONE 321 Wo mny go where'er we will, Wo hear a sky-born music still: It sounds from all things old, It Sounds from all things young, From all that's fair, from all that's foul, Meals out a chcrful song. It is not only in the bird, Not only whore the rainbow glows, Nor in the song of woman heard; But in the darkest, meanest things There's alwuys, always something sings, T'is not in the high stars alone, Nor in the cup of budding flowers, Nor in the redbreast's mellow tone; Nor in the bow that smiles in showers, But in the mud and scum of things There's alwuys always something sings.—Selected.

Prothro Relaxing ..Before Play-Off i* * Takes Things Easy Awaiting Shaughnessy Series to Begin MEMPHIS, Tenn,— (IP)— The good Doc Prothro, n hefty bundle of nerves while his Little Rock Travelers were driving to the Southern Association baseball championship, has quit his pawing, pleading and master-minding along the baselines to take things easy until the Shanghnessy playoff. He is working as hard at relaxing as 'he did in guiding his Pcbs to the pennant. And he has permitted his boys to take things easy after the clincher they put on the championship last Sunday. Since the Pebs arrived here for a series, (he Doc hasn't been in uniform. He did visit the bench Wednesday night—in civilian clothes—just to see how they were making out. He has four of his stars ".under wraps," too, and is letting the rookies cavort. Al Niemiec, second baseman, Jim Tabor, third baseman, Ray Thompson, catcher, and Jack O'Neill, first baseman, are resting up for the "haughncssy. The loam is merely relaxing and not loafin.g Prothro warns, adding: "Don't think we won't be tough. "We have just as good a chance to win as any of the other teams—just as good and a little belter. He's not even afraid of those Atlanta Crackers, who have won 13 out of 19 games with the Travelers, "Nope," Prothro said, "we're not a bit scared of them. If you remember, we broke even with them the last time over in Little Rock." Vegetation Provides Gully Erosion Check; Annual Loss Equals Five l6o-Acre Farms -E N D S- Card of Thanks We wish to take this method of expressing our sincere appreciation to our many friends for the kindness shown us during our recent bereavement, also for the beautiful floral offering. Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Payne and family. Weekly Sunday School Lesson By WM. E. GILROY, D. D. Editor of Advance Nation Needs Religious Homes Text: Deuteronomy 6:4-5; 11:18-25 Thousands of acres, of abandoned fnrm and other land arc eroding at n rapid rate throughout (lie uplands of Southwest Arkansas. This erosion not only causes financial loss to the individual landowner hut this unfertile dcbros coming from gullied nrens ruins rich bottom land fields and other properly in (he lower watershed during times of flood. Soil-binding vegetation, often employed in connection with small brush or wire dnms, used as illustrated in (he picture above, affords a low cost and effective means of controlling the spread of large gullies and washes. Scvcrnl kinds of grass, vines and trees have not only proved effective in reclaiming (he soil but have produced good returns. ®- Erosion ruined the equivalent of five 160-acre farms each day and caused their abandonment during 1936. Three billion tons of soil material or enough to fill a trainload of railroad flat cars long enough to reach from San Francisco 16 New York eight times. This cost the farmers of the United ©• States $400,000,000.00 last year and is progressively . increasing. Here in Southwest Arkansas erosion has seriously reduced the crop yield from year to year despite improved cropping conditions, improved varieties, use of fertilizers and better tillage .implements. Attempts to fertilize crops or to restore fertility on actively eroding fields are only partially effective and are very wasteful of money and time unless active erosion is curbed. Unfortunately the majority ot people fail to realize that erosion is taking place -until gullies appear in the fields. Sheet erosion, often overlooked, is attacking 75 per cent of the agricultural land of the United States at the present time. Sheet erosion quickly turns to gully erosion on unprotected sloping fields. If eroded to the advanced gully stage, it is seldom economical to reclaim and return to its former productive state. Uncurbed guily erosion endangers public highways, bridges, undermines buildings, causes silting of storage reservoirs and carries sand and debris during floods and deposits it on rich bottom land below, making it unproductive. Gullies on the farm are like sores on the body—both can be healed. Gullies, large and small, can be healed successfully by restoring a protective vegetative cover. For hundred of thousands of years in the past trees, shrubs, vines and grasses have grown and formed a protective cover over the soil. Gullies did not begin until man destroyed this natural cover by clearing, firing, and grazing alon,g with cultivation. The secret, therefore, of healing gullies is to give nature a chance to reestablish some sort of vegetative cover. Nature is aided somewhat by sloping the bank to an angle of gentle re- pose (about 30 per cent), construction of temporary dams, planting of sod, »rass seed, trees, vines or shrubs, which accelerates restoration once es- ablished and protected from fire and grazing. Bermuda grass with just a little assistance in getting established has solved the gully problem on farms cooperating with the Hope Soil Conservation Project and the attached camps at Hope, Friendship, and Magnolia, Arkansas. Bank sloping with a plow, small temporary wire dams scattered along the gully, with some manure, and protection from grazing the first year is all that the co-operating farmers found was necessary for Bermuda to take complete charge of a gully. Kudzu, originating in Japan and found growing on porches throughout the Southeast, has proven very effective and profitable in controlling erosion in gullies. Kudzu grows rapidly, is a legume, holds the soil and furnishes feed for livestock. What was heretofore gullied, abandoned land is growing Kudzu and cattle profitably in the Southeast." Soil Conservation involves the use of every practical method ,of erosion control and wise land use. Wise land use is simply the adaption of nature's conservation and flood control methods to the conditions of advanced cultivation. Man can and must adapt crops and cropping practices to the purposes of conservation. This in- Revival to Open in Emmet Sunday Open-Air Meeting Under Direction of Rev.

The idea is to make water creep or walk where it rushed away before.

There will not be much religion in a nation unless there is religion in its homes. The quality of a nation's life could be very well determined from its home life. The Bible is a great textbook of home and family life. The Hebrew scriptures would seem to be almost unique in the ancient world in the high idealism that they attached to family rohiliinships. Among pagan peoples who even hod considerable culture, it was not thought inconsistent with good practice to expose the weak and the aged to death; but Hebrew children were taught to love and honor their parents, and the Hebrew scriptures again and again bear evidence of the deep affection of parents for their children. At a later time the Jews are foremost in education, and the Jewish boy of 12 in the time of Jesus had a training that would compare favorably with what the boy of today receives under a modem educational system. In some respects, perhaps, the training was deeper and more effective. Here in this lesson from the early life of Israel, there is strong insistence upon the teaching of children in the home, the training of them in 'the great traditions and principles of their national religious life, nad the strengthening of them for all the duties and responsibilities of life. There is a sort of imperialistic note in this lesson in the idea of a strong nation dispossessing other people and driving them out; and all this docs not measure very properly with the ideals of New Testament religion, which is the religion of love even to enemies, and the religion of mercy and justice. But apart from this imperialism o) an unadvanced age, the sort of imperialism that is still too rampant in a world that has not progressed to thn heights of Now Testament teaching, the teaching of this lesson is sound in its suggestion that the strength of a nation depends upon the relationships of its people in their home and daily life. We read an ancient lesson in terms CLEARANCE SALE VALUES IN USED CARS MI TRUCKS of Christian fulfillment of Old Testament ideas. What makes a Christian home? First of all, a sense of the responsibility of parents to God. A home cannot bo Christian where parents themselves do not love and worship the Groat Father, Where parents love God, they will lovo their children truly and deeply. They will have the .saint- lovo toward their children that God luui, oven toward his erring and wayward ones. Where a homo is truly Christian, NE LAST DAY "GENE RAYMOND ANN SOTHEUN —in— "THERE GOES MY GIRL" Comedy and Novelty children will love and honor their parents, and there will be an attitude of accord and helpfulness toward one an- olhor. One of the saddest thinys in life is to sco brothers and sisters traducing the very name of brotherhood.

Tho groat question confronting us i church and in state is how increas- igly we can make our homes ideal oines, until all the homos of the na- on become filled with the right spirit nd the nation itself is one great home ml family. •It- SUN. & MON.
