••» -*- .- , 1984 HOPE STAR; HOPE, ARKANSAS The Day Is Done The dny is done, and the darkness Falls from the wings of Night, As a feather is wafted downward From an eagle in his flight. Come read to me some poem, Some simple, heartfelt lay, That shall soothe -this restless feeling, And banish the thoughts of day. Such f,-ongs have power to quiet The restless pulse of care, And come like the benediction That follows after prnyer. Then rend from treasured volume The poem of thy choice, And lend t othe rhyme of the pool, The homily of thy voice, And lend to the rhyme of Ihe poet, tuu.sic, And the cares that infest the day Sluill fold their tents like the Arabj. And OR silently steal awny. .H.W.L Mi. imd Mrs. J. E.

IS SPENDING (Continued from Page One) shortage, and turning over to FSRC for processing into relief shoes. But to get a more detailed picture of the activities directed from Washington, come down to the big buildings housing Die Department of Agriculture and Ihc AAA where Ihc executive staff and at least a dozen bureaus and committees are working hard on the drouth. Seed Bought In Huge Lots The AAA Commodity Purchase sec- lion directs the cattle buying al the rale of 70,000 a day for Federal Surplus Relief Corporation cunning and shipping to paslure—and has purchased 20,000.000 bushels of wheat, durum, oats and barley for seed, with more to come, including some from Canada. The department extension service, wit him counly agents every where, and alliances with agricultural colleges ploys a general role in all operations, exchanging information between the capita and the farmers, and reporting on need and availibility of pasture in dozens of states. The Bureau of Animal Industry's agents decide which animals arc fit in ship, cull herds and save bulls which wil preserve the best strains. They have visited more than 200,000 farms, checked more than 10,000,000 dead of cattle and okayed more than .J.000.000 fcr purchase, certified 5*1,000 carloads—about two-thirds o( the pur. chased animals—for shipping, and condemning or moving the rest. The bii- rcsu also inspects the FRSC's canned meal. Make Ke«d Survey The National Livestock Feed Committee appointed by Wallace is making a national survey of the location of available feed and forage supplies, including corn stalks and wheat straw. Hay and other feed will be bought, some to be given lo FERA for penniless farmers and some to be held for sale, while commercial agencies arc encouraged to conserve supplies for later emergency. The Bureau of Plant Idustry isolates grain seed in areas where it might otherwise all be sold on the market and holds it for next year, lo ten that, seed best adapted for given areas will then be available for those areas. It has 525,000,000 for that. The Forest Service is planning its great $100,000,000 shelter belt of trees, to run 1000 miles through the plains states for future protection. A field office has been opened in Lincoln, Neb., and work will begin as soon as organization is complete, to afford further emergency relief through employment. Soil Conditions Checked The Bureau of Chemistry and Soils is helping the Forst Service, as well as checking soil condition through the drouth area. The Weather Bureau, stiil .another Department of Agriculture agenqy, prepares special daily reports for Wallace on rKi;ifal) and temperatures over the country. The Bureau of Agricultural Economics provides vitally important Information on the slalus of all crops,, drouth conditions, farm prices, food and feed supplies, the foreign drouth situation, and so on. Daily information pours in by telephone and telegraph. The Bureau of Agriculture Engineering tackles the serious drouth conditions in irrigated areas. The Bureau of Home Economics figures out the most economical ways of shifting from high-priced foods to other foods, with the relative energy .. • I -lr •* " PAGE and protein content*. Consumers And. the Consumers' Council ol AAA, thrtrugh the widely circulated Conscmers' Guide and public state menta, post consumers on price changes, enables them to dlstmirulsh between fair and unfair increases, checks their complaints and report* the mto other agencies for action and tell* housewives what they can do locally to protect themselves against gouging. There are other drouth agencies under Wallace—such ns the Emergency Drouth Relief Service, which tells farmers h6w to make poor fodder more palatable for cattle and thinks lihe that. Nobody can keep track of them all. Though the emergency drouth setup has been remarkably effectivo, more co-ordination was needed, so a general committee in charge of drouth relief has just been named. Meanwhile, the AAA, while devoting most ,of its attention to the drouth, Is planning for the future what it hopes will be a balanced, planned American agriculture. Benefit Payments Huge Benefit payments this year will be about $500,000,000, mostly in drouth stales, and it confidently predicts u big increase in national farm income for 1934 despite the drouth, the impoverishment of nobody knows how many farmers, and the uncertainty about next year. Private industry has supplemented the huge federal drouth program. Instances include the reduction of railroad rales on hay, feed, and cattle movements, loun by oil men of u huge pipe-lino to carry 500,000 or more gallons o fwalcr ,'i day into parts of th? drocth area, donation by California peach growers to FSRC of peaches which were to have been left to rot on trees, and an offer by. the Nation?! Food and Grocery Distributors' Code Authority to help stop profiteering. NEXT: What the Federal Enter, gcncy Relief Administration and Federal Surplus • Belief Corporation are doing toward drouth relief TIDE WASHES (Continued from Page One) more than a month ago by a Wilmington woman who guarded her secret of the sands while she reaped a daily harvest. Monday a Charlotte youngster, BIHy Kidd, stumbled on good luck and' the secret was out. The total found within half an hour of high tide amounted to between !f5 and ?10 each day. Mrs. Mary Manning the Wilmington woman first lo find "pay sand" was reticent when questioned but she was quoted by others as saying she had averaged better than $4 daily for four or five weeks. The coins found include pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and a few half dollars. Several explanations have been offered. One theory is that all money lost by bathers on the beach has accumulated in one slough 'and is being brought in by an unusual current. Another is lhat it is a part of the swag obtained in a robbery of the old Oceanic hotel in 1926. Hlorsitramykn . evangelist also admitted demanding a like sum from ihe Los Angeles evangelist to prevent Angchis Temple from being bombed. The officers quoted Askew as saying he went to Raleigh on leaving here, then took a train to Richmond from where the note to Mrs. McPhcr- son was mailed. From Richmond, Askew said he want to Washington where he telegraphed his wffe to "have the money ready by Saturday." The telegram sent Thursday, was signed "Corlez." After this, Askew was quoted ns saying, he went by bus to Knoxville and thence to Nashville. PROFIT SYSTEM PREACHER JAILED (Continued from Page One) J. V. Moore - - Evan W.

Phone 112 "Price, Quality and Service" (Continued from Page One) showing such initiative in getting back on its own feet that it is more and more relieving the federal government of "responsibilities which cnder normal conditions belong to business." Roper said the Roosevelt regime is "squarely behind" the principle of continuing the "profit motive" and believed in "just profits for management and capital and an equitable return to labor for its rightful rewards in the economic processes." "No thinking business man desires to have the old order restored," he ?aid. "He does desire and is entitled to have the new order characterized by a bctler control against economic cataclysms and by the freedom to exercise his initiative in planning for, the fulurc of his bcsine.ss in the light) of an equitable profit system." James Cagney at Saenger 2 Days "Here Comes the Navy" at Theater Thursday and Friday Warner Bros, melodramatic thriller of Uncle Sam's jack-tars Here Comes the Navy" plays Thursday and Friday at the Saenger with James Cagney and Pat O'Brien co-starring and "i.OflO sailors taking an active part. The picture is said to carry some of the most breath-taking thrills ever witnessed, in addition to supplying ilcnty of hilarious comedy and a glow ng romance. The action takes place aboard the U.S.S. Arizona at the dir- gible field at Sunnydalc, Cal., with lie U.S.S. Macon at the Naval train- ng station at San Diego, Cal., and at Ihc Navy yards at Bremerton, Wash. One of the stirring scenes which comes in as part of the background of the picture is teh weighing of anchor of the entire Pacific fleet to start the cruise for Atlantic waters under Presidential command. This is the first time such a scene of the entire fleet in action has ever been shown in a picture, There is thrill after thrill in the pic- ture, two of the most breath-taking being the rescue of a gun crew from a flaming turret and the saving of a man who has been carried aloft clinging to a ground wire of a dirigible by a rope, by a sailor sliding down the rope with a parachute strapped to his back and dropping with the man to the ground. Out of 378 important waterfalls in Brazil, a minimum Of 00,000,000 horsepower could be derived through hydro-electric plants.
