Guery Ozan Correspondent Finds 28 Boys in School, Only 10 Girls By Ozan Correspondent It Is really a case of boys and more boys in the Ozan Public Schools, and just where arc the girls? Well, they just are not there. The present enrollment in the eight grades is 38; twenty-eight of these are boys and ten are girls. Three boys' names have been dropped from the roll since school began, but there are more boys to enter, and girls, maybe there will be one or two. With the fact in mind, Ozanites might tremble at the thought of the future homes in the community. Is Circles 2 and 3 of the W. M.

Perhaps modern boyhood has lost so much of its gcntlcmanness, its courtesy and its other essential manhood qualities that only one out of five or six boys well, make a desirable life's mate for a girl. Or, perhaps the girls of today have lost so much of their modesty and chastity, purity and sweet character, and all'the otehr necessary characteristics of successful, divine womanhood that they are decreasing in number, while the boys increase. Perhaps, somewhere in the future there is a destructible voice of war calling these extra boys to fight for their loved ones and homes, their country and peace, or just to fight. Will disease and crime play their part in decreasing the number? All bitter "perhaps," but who knows the Maker's purpose in making these population facts as they are? By NBA Service OTTAWA, Ont—Of all the women legislators in the world, the laurels for making the most strenuous campaign for election must go to adven- tourous, 71-year-old Mrs. Martha Louise Black, who represents Canada's northernmost constituency, the 200,- 000-square-milo Yukon Territory, in Canada's House of Commons. Scattered through this vast region there are but 1805 voters, yet Mrs. Black personally knows 1500 of them. In her campaign for election, she vis- Itede nearly all of them. She traveled thousand of miles by canoe, small motorboats, a river steamer and two- horse team. And when other means of transportation were impractical, she took to her own two feet to solicit votes. She made an eight-mile trek through the forest to Visit three trappers. When the votes were counted, she had a majority of 135 votes. Mrs. Black is no novice at her parliamentary duties. Her husband has represented the Yukon since 1921, and in 1930 became Speaker of the House of Commons. Ill-health forced George Black to give up his parliamentary duties in 1935, and Mrs. Black stepped in to keep the representation in the family. But she had to fight for her post. She won, though the Conservation party which had been in power under Prime Minister Richard Bennett took a severe licking. First Lady of Yukon Mrs. Black was born hi Chicago. crochet needle, No. 3 or 4, and is very fascinating as well as economical to make. It is best to cut the material on the bias, about % inch wide. Pieces from one inch in length to as long as the .goods will make can be used. The strips are put on the crochet needle in the same manner as a sewing needle is run through goods in making a common running stitch. Twine string is used for the crochet which is done in single crochet stitch. Each time a stitch is made, a double of the strip is slipped O H the needle onto the last stitch. The length of the center chain which starts the rug is determined by subtracting the width it will be when finished from the desired length; the difference will be the length of the center chain. Make the chain from twine; slip a double of cloth over the needle onto the chain. Continue taking stitches in this manner until the center is the desired length. Then begin and work back, taking a stitch in each stitch of the chain and working around and around until the rug is the desired With the Hempstead Home Agent By MELVA BULLINGTON When she was five years old the Chicago fire wiped out Her father's laundry machinery business. She was educated in Chicago, and there married Will Purdy in 1887. With Purdy and their two sons, she climbed the Chilcoot Pass in 1898 to hunt for gold in the Lukon. And in a lonely log cabin when her husband was out pros, peeling, she bore their third son, Lyman, who was killed this year in a motor car accident. In 1900, word reached her in her log cabin in the Yukon that her husband had died while on a trip to Honolulu. Left alone with three children, she formed a claim partnership with two men to work a gold field. While the men worked to wash the gold nuggets from the stream bed, the young widow cooked for the sixteen men engaged on work on her claim. The following year she erected a sawmill, and for three years she ran that business. Then she met a rising young lawyer, George Black. In 1904 they were married. Seven years later Mrs. Black became the First Lady of the Yukon, with the appointment of her husband as commissioner. When the World war broke out, George Black enlisted along with his three stepsons. Not to be left alone, Mrs. Black went along, was the only woman on the troopship which left Canada for England. And while Arkansas Trio Is (Continued from Page One) her four men fought in France, Mrs Black nursed the wounded who cam back to England.

It's time to get up ... one, two, stretch." Radio setting up exercises start the day for 8,500 leghorn hens producing 4,200 eggs a day in Chicago's downtown, four-story egg factory. Later in the day they get soothing organ music; and that, says egg master H. H. Bond, is the hen's delight—a great egg producer.

(SjRoyal Geographical Society. Latch-string Always Out On their return to Canada, Mr. Black ecided to run for Parliament. Mrs. lack resumed her collection of Yuon wild flowers. She has followed lat hobby ever since she went north, nd in 1924 and 1925 she sent most of er then 464 specimens to the Wembley mpire Exhibition in England. Now IB has more than 600 specimens of fukon flowers, and her garden in )awson City is the best known in the ar north. The Black home in the Yukon like hat of most homes in that country, is ever locked. It is a custom in the far orth for any trapper, prospector or miner from the bush to come to the Slack home and find an empty bed. 'he genial legislator's sourdough pan- akes and baked beans are famous hroughout the Yukon. Despite her busy days in Parliament, Ars. Black this past year found time o write a book on her experiences in he far north. In Parliament, she has jeen trying to get a minimum wage aw passed for the men who work the fold mines which today have been jored far underground, since the sur:ace gold in the rivers and streams was all taken out at the beginning of the century. The men, she states, receive only 25 cents an hour today. Movies are late in reaching the Yukon, usually about a year after they are released in Canada's major cities. Luxuries are practically unknown, and so, explains the northern legislator, most women y who can afford it, collect fine china. While Mrs. Black is now a Canadian citizen, she inherited from her parents the right to be a Colonial Dame, a Daughter of the American Revolution, and a Governor's Daughter. One son, Warren Purdy, lives in Honolulu;- the other, Donald Purdy, in Oilfields, Calif. Infant Industry CHICAGO — Factory production of eggs by batteries of pampered hens was tried out in England several years ago but died out after humane societies charged that keeping the hens cooped up was cruel. Believed to have begun in the United States in 1928 in New Jersey, the egg factory idea now is spreading through the east and midwest The factory described here is said to be the largest in the midwest Though a potential threat to farmers' egg market, factory eggs do not compete directly at present with farm eggs. They are not handled by commission houses, but go direct to retailers or consumers.

Bond, an Englishman who began "manufacturing" eggs in 1935, says his method enables consumers to get just tile color they want in an egg. "Farm hens run around and eat this and that in addition to their regular feed," he. says. "When they eat too much green feed, the egg yolks are dark. Consumers like light-colored yolks, and that is what we get here because we balance the diet. Hen Must Work to Eat "We give the hens a regulated mix- ure of dried milk, meat scraps and green feed. We keep the protein con- ent at 15 per cent, compared with 8 or 20 per cent in the average farm diet—because our hens, cannot get as much exercise in their cages.

Every home has plenty of old garments that can bo used. Any material can be used as long as it is clean and strong. Woolen suiting and underwear make very nice rugs, but heavy and lightweight materials should not be combined. Neither should materials such as silk and wool be mixed, or silk and cotton or cotton or wool. Miss Sybil D. Bates, extension specialist in home industries, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, gives directions for a new type of rug that is easily crocheted from discarded material.
