H. WASHBUEN- Corn Crop 24% of 10-Year Average, With 12 Mill. Bu. H IGHWAY No. 67, with its thousands of tourists, gives us a remarkable opportunity to advertise our community to the world. Better still, we have plenty of things here of real and enduring interest to the traveler—if we could tell him. Pride In one's own county was one- very real. Citizens of Mississippi coun ty years ago erected n memorial arch across the West Mcmphls-Blythcvill highway advising the motorist that he was at thai point entering the larges 1 cotton-producing county in the world A similar construction awaits the traveler entering Handolph county. If we were to follow their example we would make a lavish display of watermelon billboards at the Fulton bridge, to the west, and at Emmet to the east. Something else: Hempstcad county is widely known In its own slate because the county-seat town of Washington produced Augustus H. Garland, Attorney General of the United States, and Jnmes K. Jones, a federal senator. But hardly a traveler from out of the state knows Hcmpslcad is the home county of these famous men. Why not erect memorials to them on the route of No. 67 through this county, giving directions to the birth- Better Than 8-Million- Bushel Record of 1930, However P ASTURES IM P ROVE Hay Production for State 37% of 1.0-Year Average, Survey Shows LITTLE ROCK — Com production in Arkansas during August declined only 4 per cent below that of July, uMn gas a yardstick the percentage ot average conditions of nil crops in relation to an average established over the past. 10 years, Charles S. Bouton. agricultural statistician of the Bureau of Agricultural Economcis said Monday. Loss to growing crops during Aug- u.st was undoubtedly greater than 4 per cent, he said, but the customary comparison used in the bureau's- reports is fur nil crops, and many of these like oats, wheat, early hay, potatoes, berries and other fruits, had matured before Augusll, thus main- taininK a better comparative average. Most of the damage to corn had occurred prior to August 1, Mr. Bouton ;:nid. An estimated yield of 12.444.00C bushels for the state is 24 per cent ol the 10-ye;ir average, and is the lowest yield in many years, except that of 8.317.000 bushels in 1930. Rice prospects have improved, Mr. ;t<m s-aid, though curtailment of the accragc wil make for lower than average production. The cstimatcc yield cf 6,936,000 bushels, which is 78 per cent of the 10 year average. Cooler weather nnd increased humidity have bencfittcd later secdings. 1'a.sturnge ImprovesRcceutly Decline of pasturage during the car- place at Washington?

Improvements have been great ' «i- in tl-.f-Wrlhcra prrt cf 4hc state than in southern and southeastern counties. Wild hap production is estimated at ] 18.000 tons and cultivated hay at 571.- 000 Ions. 37 per cent of the 10 year average* Alfalfa crops of 133,000 tons are . predicted. Figures on soybeans and cowpeas were not available. An estimated production of 14,500.000 pounds of peanuts was given, which is 43 pel- cent of the baeis average. The sweet potato crop was estimated nt 2.210.00(1 bushels or 33 per cent of the 10 year average. A further decline in apple production WHS noted, with 1,295,000 bushels us the indicated yield, 33 per cent of the average. The crop is late and late varieties can grow a great deal, Mr. Bouton siiid. The average price of Jonathans to the grower in northwest Arkansas is 51 a bushel.

Lifting of Cotton Tax Penalty Urged Georgia Senator Advocates Abandoning Bankhead Procedure WASHINGTON. — (/P) — Suspension or revision of regulations under the Bankhead act to allow cotton farmers to market the full production of this year's crop tax free was predicted Monday by Senator Russell, Democrat, C!«:on>in, a/tcr a conference with Secretary vWnHucc. - •, . • ••••-. ,{Tho Georgian telegraphed senators from all Southern states urging them to join him in obtaining suspension of the compulsory baleage control law which be said threatened ruin to the small farmer. Russell arranged also to carry the appeal to 1'resident Roosevelt. Pointing out that the government crop report of September 1 indicate-) cotton yield far below the maximum production figure set by the Bankhcad act, Russell .said the objects of the legislation had been attained and "there is no need penalizing far- Tiers who may. because of good gi-iw- :iig conditions, produce more than :.heir individual allotments." If enforced, he declared, the com- mlsory act "will cause more dis'res .o the small farmers than anything since Sherman's march to the sea." cd from an alleged drunken fight between the two. When Cox was brought lo the hospital here he was unable to say what caused the fight. Blankenship was not injured.

They reported that applications had necn received by relief organizations n every state affected by the textile v.alkout, and Hint these applications vere receiving exactly the same treat-- ment accorded ordinary relief requests. — By the Associated Pi-ess Francis J. Gorman, textile strike chairman, threatened Monday lo call out 100.000 additional workers in all remaining branches of the industry unless tlic walkout is settled (hit week. The extension would affect the dyeing, rayon, underwear, knit goods, and rug divisions. With 11,000 National Guardsmen on :iuty, the conflict remained deadllck- ed. Gains claimed by Southern mil iwners in the reopening of several large plans were partially offset by .he walkout of approximately 1,500 idditional workers in Maine. Martial law was announced in the Georgia strike region. Ariopling strikers' tactics, guardsmen organi/ed a "'flyig squarlr:>n." and an internment :amp wa seslablishod near Atlanta to receive prisoner:;. Some 200 ' pickets ,vere arrested.

Nome, Alaska, Is Destroyed by Fire Famed Gold Mining City Wiped Out by Roaring Flames NOMK, Alaska.—(/P)—Nome, famed Alaskan gold mining city was destroyed by fire Monday and only two business buildings, including a hotel and a few residences in the northern section of the town were left standing. Late in the afternoon, dynamite was resorted to in an effort lo destroy buildings and check the path of the flames, but the fire raged onward. With every available man fighting unsuccessfully lo stop the fire, mining operations in the outskirts were stopped, and men were rushed here to help. Every grocery store burned and very little food was saved from the thelves of the stores, (he owners reported. An early estimate of the loss was placed at JTStl.OOU, with (he probability it would rise to $1,000.000.
