Monday, September 27, 1937 HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS "Saturday Night Bath" Era Is Gone Electric Power Brings City Conveniences to the Farm Home Saturday night is jiboul to lose its significance in mnny parts of rural America. The time honored custom of the Saturday night bath is doomed to go the way of the horse and buggy. Electric power will bring running water to the farm and that means kitchen alnks, bath tubs, nnd other comfortf, nnd advantages no familiar to millions of city folk. The Rural Electrification Administration has been created to insist the farmer in securing the extension of electric 'power lines to farm areas. The avcrnfio farmer and his family Ko to great lengths to keep themselves clean, hut it takes time, energy, and fuel to draw enough water from the well, carry it indoors bucket by bucket, and heat it. on the stove. To carry nnd heat water for scvuval members of a family every day would tax the patience of the most fastidious. Saturday night seemed the most log- icnl time to refresh themselves for Sunday's day of rest. By the time the entire family had bathed in relays in (he wash tub near the kitchen stove, the mother, who supervised the scrubbing of necks and cars, emptied the water, and mopped the floor, needed her day of rest, no doubt. Lacking of running water and proper equipment docs not indicate that American farm families arc against bathing. They are as well aware of the benefits of cleanliness as anyone 'else, perhaps more aware. It PAGE Give some thought to the LAXATIVE you take Constipation is not to bo trifled with.

That, bathing facilities, available in Greece and Palestine thousands of years ago, should be denied to American farm families today seems unreasonable . Bathing for comfort, health and pleasure has been practiced by nearly every people since the beginning of mankind. Homer records that in his day warm baths were used "after fatigue and exorcise." Ancient Jewish history refers to hot and cold baths, running water and the application of oils and ointments to the body otter bathing. That ninety-three per cent of the thirty million rural inhabitants in the United Stales have no bath tubs or showers is as deplorable as it is true. Certainly there is nothing that gives such n fooling of general well-being as an all-over bath—cither the tingling, exhilarating shower or the soothing, restful tub Indispensable during illness, hot baths are employed to relieve chills and pain; cold baths to reduce fevers. And minerals, such as salts, are added to the bath in the treatment of some skin affections. Tepid tub baths are known to have a beneficial effect in the treatment of mental or nervous strain, and are conductive to sleep. Electricity Checks Trend to the City Rural Electrification, Factor in Keeping Youngsters on Farm The rapid spread of rural electrification is proving a powerful factor in the movement to keep farm youngsters on the farm, according to information reaching the Rural Electrification Administration. In Die march of electric distribution poles down country roads, farm parents, agricultural authorities and prominent sociologists are finding an ally, ready to aid them in their efforts to nrrcst the volume of migration of farm youth to urban centers. While the, depression served as a temporary check to this 50-year-old flow toward cities, signs point once again to a resumption of the steady drain of people and property from the land. The picture is summed up by Dr. 0. E. Baker, Senior Agricultural Econ- mi;n, U. S. Department of Agriculture and an outstanding authority on rural problem;,. Dr. Baker points out that already ?ss linn one quarter of what the Census calls the "gainfully employed" in tl;.in country are engaged in agriculture; in 1870 well over half the gainfully employed were to be found on farms During the decade 1080-30 alone, Dr. Baker estimates, the agricultural sections of this country contributed about 514.000,000.000 to the cities in young men nnd women. This sum represents the amount spent in rearing Plans for Modern Homes and educating the 6,000,000 young people, not, who left the farm for the conveniences and opportunities of the cities. In addition to the staggering transfer of wealth in the form of labor power and citizenship, wealth in the form of property is constantly moving toward the cities by inheritance. No one factor will arrest this disturbing trend, sociologists point out. Decentralization of industry accompanied by part-time farming is important, as is withdrawal of submarg- inal lands unfit for agricultural purposes.

Finally, measures to restore the balance of electricity into rural districts are potent factors in equalizing the prospects of opportunities and conveniences as between city and countryside. Rural electrification is already meeting a response among rural young people, causing them to look upon the farms they grew up on with new eyes, turning their attention .away from cities with their grime and' smoke and congestion. Electricity Boon to Dairy Farmer New Rural Development Offers Farm Operator Many Advantages H Mrs. O'Leary had had electric lighting In her cow barn, her cow would have had no lantern to kick over, and the / great Chicago fire might never have occurred. But safe illumination is by no means the only advantage which Mrs. O'Leary and her milk cows could have gained through use of electricity. Electricity is particularly well adapted to run the many types of appliances so necessary oh the modern dairy farm. Electricity Is a sure, constant, convenient source of power, easy to control and use, arid odorless and clean. Electric appliances are lighter in weight and more, easily moved. They are always ready and willing to serve regardless of temperature or weather. Present-day lood standards demand quick and hygienic handling of milk products. Spotless electric milking machines insure pure milk, and that embarrassing moment when the cow put .her foot in the milk pail becomes a thing of the past. The machines are tlmesavers too. The United States Department of Agriculture finds that milking machines properly arranged can greatly increase the number of cows each man can milk. It is essential that milk be cooled immediately and kept cool. Electrical cooling and refrigerating units now do this work with a minimum of bother and expense. On farms where cream is sold or butter is made, the centrifugal crearn separator is a necessary part of the equipment. The more smoothly and Uniform the separator operates, the more completely does it extract the butter fat. An electric-powered separator has 'this constant and smooth operation. .. Many times during the winter months it is dangerous to turn the cows out to drink, especially when there is sleet or snow on the ground. Again, cattle will not drink their fill of water that is too cold, and an abundant consumption of water is essential for maximum milk production. With fresh, running water electrically pumped to individual stanchions, these difficulties are overcome. It is much easier to keep the dairy buildings clean with water under pressure. Just as do humans, cows require that line—when the treasury saw in the device an opportunity for a public tax-dodger circus to help explain why the 1936 administration tax bill failed to yield what was expected of it. plenty of fresh air, A fullgrown animal needs about GO cubic feet of air per minute to be at its best. Calves must have over a third as much. The cow barn can be ventilated in a modern and efficient manner with the judicious use of electric fans. As thest can ben controlled to fit weather and wind conditions, plentiful supply of air is always provided at negligible cost. Long underhair which collects dirt and may contaminate the milk can be kept trimmed with electric clippers. Bottle washers and bottling machines, electric churns, water heaters, sterilizers, aerators are other pieces of equipment which are now available to the dairy farmer who has electricity.

Arkansas By PRESTON GROVER WASHINGTON—Everyday economics in brief: One of the reasons for Wall Street protests against the restrictive rules on stock market trading is that he volume of turnover is cut down. Brokers get a nip out of every share of slock bought and sold on the exchange and restrictions naturally cut in where its hurts. Neither the federal reserve board nor securities-exchange officials become especially perturbed by protests. . . . Another angle on the action of the treasury in loosening up credit by defrosting 5300,000,000 in gold is that federal reserve officials suspected that bankers were all set to begin talking higher interest rates. Not much doubt is held here that the action of the treasury -was dictated in part by the federal reserve board policy of lower interest rates. . . . Again the Bankers Many government financial officials lay part of the blame for the sluggishness of the building industry at the door of bankers. They are ready enough to agree that the bankers had plenty of trouble during the low of the depression because they had slow mortgage paper on their hands, acquired in financing building during the boom. Now, however, the bankers are expected to understand that a "new deal" in banking is here to stay, at least so long as the present reserve board is in control. The idea is that "slow" paper now will be more readily accepted by the federal reserve in exchange for cash at a low interest rate. Provision for that was made in the new banking acts. With bankers assured that way out of a jam, it is hard for government financial hands to understand why banks continue to piddle around with the low interest rates offered by government securities, especially in the face of earnest urging by the federal reserve for them to launch out into building and farm mortgage credit lines. Sliiifruth For Senator? Just to help round up these financial notes, we have learned that Morrison Shafrolh, who was ousted recently from the internal revenue bureau in what he described as a sort of squeeze play, may run for the senate against i'enator Adams, conservative Democrat, Colorado. Shafroth resigned as chief counsel of the revenue bureau with a complaint that lie had been told either to help out with the expose of tax evaders during the last session of congress, or resign. Shafroth is described by knowing treasury observers as the first to put his finger on the latest device for tax- dodging, that of forming foreign corporations into which profits could be pumped out of the reach of U. S. income tuxes. He preferred taking such cases into the courts—aad wag Live Wire Hot Shot Specials WitkHi§ Voltage Misses Fast tclor Wash Frocks 6 to 16 49c MISSES Wool Sweaters in all colors 98c Ladies Twin SWEATERS With Zippers $1.98 Daffodil Wash Frocks AJl Fast Colors 59c SILK DRESSES New Fall Styles Ladies Winter Coats S5.98 Ladies Sport OXFORDS Be Irresistible in the New .
