PAGE SIX HOPE STAB, &OPE, ARKANSAS lore News About State Photo Prize "Picture Arkansas'* Competitors May Retain Their Negatives J?«vefat questions arising in the minds of amateur photographers concerning the $225 "Picture Arkansas" contest sponsored by the Arkansas Publicity Advisory Commission have 6e«tv answered by M. C. Blackman, State Publicity Director. The question that troubles most Wdtild-be contestants, Blackman said, is whether they can use their negatives for other purposes if they should Win a prize. The original rules of the contest provided that negatives of prize-winning pictures would become the property of the State of Arkansas. That rule has been modified so that the winning negative remains the property of the owner, but the Com- fftission reserves the right to borrow it for making enlargements for publicity purposes. "The more the prize winning pictures are used, and the wider circulation they have, the better for our purpose, Which is to publicize the state," Blackman said. Similarly, prints submitted which do not win prizes will be kept by the Commission, but the contestants may wake and use as many prints from their negatives as they wish. • All pictures used for publicity fWrposes, whether prize-winners of fttrt, will be credited to the photographers who made them, Blackman said. Sequence pictures may be submitted, it was explained. That is, two or more photographs showing different phases of the same subject may be entered as one entry. Composites, montages, photographs of paintings or sketches, or any artificial trick photography will not be considered. Camera clubs, or any other organizations may compete in the contest as groups instead of individuals, if they prefer. The sweepstakes prize is S100 for the best photograph submitted. Additional prizes of $25 will be paid for the best pictures in the following divisions: Agriculture, Industry, Scenery, Becreation, and Urban Life. The Contest closes November 30.

CARDUI In this modern time something wonderfully worth while can be done for practically every woman who suffers from functional pains of menstruation. Certain cases can be relieved by taking Cardui. Others may need a physician's treatment. Cardui has two widely demonstrated uses: (1) To ease the immediate pain and nervousness of the monthly period; and (2) to aid in building up the whole system by helping women to get more strength from their food. $360,000,000 Life Insurance In Force Donald V.

MOHICAN 5 By RUSSELL STADELMAN, District Forrester, Magnolia A careless moment — may bring torment; Woods fires today — mean dollars delay. Conscientious and diligent searching by towermen in '.heir sky-reaching steel towers one- hundred feet above terra firma has bcoughl about the early detection and quick suppression of forest fires by personnel of the Arkansas State Forestry Commission. A smoke to a towerman is a problem to be quickly ansly/ed and studied before reported. Questions as to its source, size, and distJ.icc from the tower can be readily answered by veteran t< wermeu. Thn color and ciiaracter of a smoke often reveals the source to the experienced eye. Actual woods smoke; Pt distances ranging over 45 linvo been accurately sighted and located by eagle- eyed towermen within one-quarter mile of the actual !••>.: itiop. Other smokes htve been chejlced out at a distance of 75 miles from these samu clear-eyed foes o fttv» forest fire. Trully, this may be described as telescopic. sight. Permanent smokes such as saw mills,' sorghum mills, cotton gins, and town smokes are known and plotted by the towerman on his map. He is also informed of the location of any brush burning or any new ground burning, so that he will not send out a Ranger or a fire crew on a false alarm. However, half of the smokes that a towerman locates and sends someone to suppress turn out to be false alarms. The Arkansas Ltate Forestry Commission is attempting to save this needless cost of travel by a system of cooperation with the landowner and farmer. Post cards will be furnished by the Forestry Commission on which the individual may write the location of the burning, and the date that he intends to burn. These cards may simply be dropped in the mail, a clav or so before the burning is intended, as no postage is required. When these cards are received the location of the proposed burning is recorded and a false fire alarm is prevented. Clause 7, Sec. 1 of the Cole-Crutchfield Forest Fire Law states — "Anyone resiring to burn any new ground, field, grasslands or woodlands adjoining woodlands or grasslands of another, shall, if such lands lie within the boundaries of a forest protection unit, a National Forest or any other area that has organized fire protection, report to the protection agency the time that he inends o burn his lands and he location of the same befort he starts his fire. Failure to do this shall constitute a misdemeanor." Freshly-cut rosebuds will not open, but will remain buds for several days if the stems are singed with a match before placing in water.

L. Gregg, dairy specialist at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, in commenting on the staging of the nationwide Dairy Industries Exposition in the South for the first time this fall. "There is a mass of statistical data to prove this statement boh for Arkansas and other southern states," he continued. "However, even the casual observer can see that this is true by traveling through Arkansas. "Not only are old established dairy plants expanding their operations but many new plants are springing; up in areas which were unheard of in the dairy Industry five or ten years ago. In Arkansas alone there arc nine cheese plants that have started operation in the last five years, five of which have been operating only one year. All are doing woll and expanding. Many new cream buying stations nre being established each year to cnre for the increased volume of sour cream production. "Census figures for 1929 and 1934 show nn increase of 30 per cent in the number of farms reporting cows milked and 37 per cent in the number of cows milked; also 50 per cent increase in the number of farms reporting butter churned but only ten per cent in the nmount of butter churned on the farm. "The total value of dairy product's produced in Arknnsns in 1936 is estimated at 520,000,000 ranking second only to cotton ns a source of agricultural income. "Every one in Arkansas who is interested substantially in dairying or dairy industrial operations will lake advantage of ^this big Exposition's Southern debut^in New Orleans, in my opinion. Its coining South means as much in these fields as the holding of the National Automobile Show in New Orleans would mean to the car dealers nncl car users of Arkansas." Justice Black's (Continued -from Page One) to their attitude toward Senator Black." Altogether 3,5 messages were rend into the record. Samples are: "It is with a great deal of pleasure that I learned of your appointment to the Supreme Court. I feel that this is a just and fitting reward for your untiring work nnd efforts; on behalf of our people. My best wishes and heartfelt congratulations." It wns signed Louis Pizitz. Said Bnnkhead: "He is the largest merchant in the state of Alabama, a Jew." "This is splendid "recognition of unselfish, fearless public service. The nation is fortunate to have been able to command for its highest tribunal one so able. Julian M. Saks." It was in connection with this message that Bnnkhend called attention to Black's preparation of the messages. Of Mr. Sacks, Bankhead said: "He was formerly of Birmingham, Ala. (The telegram was dated New York) and has been kno>vn to Senator Black, according to Senator Black's notntion here, for the last 25 years." 'No Klan Prejudice' That Klandom was in the mind of at least one who congratulated Black was indicated in a message from John W. O'Neill of Birmingham, which, by the way, is Black's latter day home town. Ho telegraphed: "I desire to endorse your elevation to Supreme Court nnd state that United States Senator Hugo Black hns never demonstrated Kldn prejudice in Alabama or shown any but a fair spirit toward mambers of the Roman Catholic | church of Alabama." SNAPSHOT CUIL STORY TELLING It's the story-telling picture that carries real human Interest, appeal. A LMOST all of us have had the experience of calling on friends who persist In getting out their collection of snapshots and parading them before the eyes of their defenseless guests. Now please bear In mind that I harbor no thoughts of this practice as bolng a breach of social etlijuette. On the contrary, I am for It, Rut- there are many kinds and classes of snapshots. There are, for Instance, the snapshots that are very good as far as exposure, sharpness and composition are concerned but with practically no human Interest appeal. We Jan class these as record pictures. Have you ever heard of story-telling snapshots? I'll wager that many of yon haven't. For that reason this week's Snapshot Guild will be devoted to story-telling pictures. From the cradle to the grave we hear stories — and like them. All through our lives we retain our Interest in story-illustrations. It is this appeal that takes us to the movies and, causes us to look through the pages of daily newspapers and magazines for pictures thai tell stories of human activities. When u comes to talcing snapshots, however, so many seem to forget about story-telling subjects. They jilck up their cameras and just flhciot. There Is a better way to take pictures. Tliero is a vast dlfforence between a close-up view of a person and n story-telling picture, A close-up — whether head-and-shoulder, three- quarters or full length—Is more or less a record picture to show the Image of the person ph >tographi?rl, hut it does not tell a story. You may take a picture of Peggy standing looking at the camera. A fine picture, no doubt, bearing all ths earmarks of good photography properly exposed and a good example o' composition, hut still a record-ty.pe snapshot. Let Peggy be picture'} raking the I'-uves and you have a story-telling human interest snapshot. Today as you're glancing through the newspaper, notice for yourself whether record pictures of peoplo looking at Hie camera or story-tolling pictures of people doing things interest and pl'-ase you more. Before taking a picture give It a little thought and if it la to be a snapshot of an individual, have him doing something and not staring at th., camera, simulating a victim ot amnesia. I don't want to seem to lecture but I do want to impress upou you the importance of giving serious thought to your picture taking. If you will this story-telling idea foremost in your mind when you take your next pictures, I am sure they will be more Interesting to you and your friends. John Van Guilder German Girls Get Trainingm Camp The Reich Puts Its Girls From Ages 17 to 26 in Training BERLIN — (/P)— Twenty thousand German girls, between the ages of IT and 23. dnily lend willing hands to fanner's wives nncl country mothers. It's part of the labor service.

One hundred thousand girls have passed through this service. There ore SCO camps in the Reich, each taking care of 40 girls. The service lasts 26 weeks and each girl must prove she Is "Aryan" nncl must be pnssed by a doctor before she cnn enroll. She gets free board and lodging, a working kit, parade uniform, two pairs of stout shoes, bed linen, hand towels nnd 8 cents a dny pocket money.
