Representative business men, interviewed nt random with two exceptions expressed approval for the pro- Rrnm in n survey conducted Wednesday by J. V. Highfill, assistant agricultural editr.r, Extension Service of Arkansas College of Agriculture, Little Hock. The fact was revealed in the course of interviews, that in spile of the drouth. Hcmpstead county farmers, it is estimated, will receive approximately $730.000 fcr this years crop, plus appiTviii ji-«ly.,-Sir.7,4197 in-venial and benefit payments, making n total of approximately ?!KJ7,987. Had it not b-jcn for the government's Adjustment programs, many expressed Ihc belief thai cotton would be celling for much less, probably 5 cents, than the present price. Those interviewed hesitated to predict what the results would have been this year in face rf r.ne of the worst drouths on record, had it not been for the fact that the government not only assured farmers .siMniiif,' acreage reduction contracts of a cash income, increased the pi-ice they received for the cotton they Brew and then guaranteed those obtaining loans on cotton at least 12 cents per pound. I'rogiam Worth \V»!le "The cotton program certainly has had a good influence on business in poncral," R. G. McRac, president of Hit First National Bank said. He endorsed the program and favored continuation cf the plan. "Business in l!( IK nil, he said, "is approaching what it was in UI29." Mr. McUac pointed out that all paper held by his bank would be collected and he also stated thai, deposits were much greater than they were a year ago. Retail merchants have done a wonderful biisine.ss (his year, Mr. McRac declared, lie expressed the opinion tli.it it would he a disastrous move to abandon the program now that it has di in- ;:o much good. C. K. Houldii, assistant manager of Cito. W. Robison & Co., said, "Busine:- 1 ;; is as good, if not belter than it was in ira.'' He explained that his uimpany had enjoyed a 20 per cent increase in business over what it was a year ago. C. C. Lewis, general manager «f the same store, stated that he favored the program and expressed himself by saying, "It is a good tiling, and yorm'thing that has improved business." J. H. White, of While & Co.. believes that the |u'(.grain luis not helped improve conditions much and slal- if.l that the business upswing was due to conic regardlc.'is of whether the government aided or not.

Business, of course, has been better for the last year—but I mean, I believe new conditions have arisen which will make for recovery no matter what the government does or does not do. • This is the really important thing, for as long as people arc acutely conscious of the part the government is playing there can never be complete confidence that our present recovery j is to Ire sustained. Government can tide Ihc people aver a rough spot, but unless the natural business development that produces tax money as well ns private profits comes along, then government shortly will be as "broke* as the individual citizens it presumes to help. Just as it is the fear of adverse workings of natural trade laws that produce a panic, so it is the optimism over a good "break" for the future that builds up public confidence In a true business recovery. The mind of man discounts disaster in advance—and, equally so, the mind of man anticipates good fortune when it is still just barely perceptible on the for horizon. XXX For instance, you read in today's paper that low meat prices, drouth and short feed-crops have reduced America's liveutock herds to the lowest ebb in 35 years. Therefore, we arc told, meat prices will be high next spring. And a brief calculation will tell you much more: If we arc that short on livestock, then we are in for high- priced meat not only next spring but for three or four years to come. It takes that long to make a substantial gain in livestock numbers. Cattlemen are due for a boom. XXX The drouth this year virtually wiped out the burdensome part of America's wheat surplus. Experts tell us one more disaster like that would take away the needed surplus .and bring us close to famine. Wheat stocks, unlike cattle, can be built up quickly, and at first glance there wouldn't seem to be much promise of a true boom on the wheat farms. But this has happened: In North Dakota and other semi-arid wheat areas the farmers have drained marshlands and accidentally destroyed the .sub-surface water supply. In North Dakota the water-level has dropped .lown too far to be reached by the wheat roots. Thousands of acres in that country have been condemned for wheat-growing purposes for several years to come—leaving the promise of a boom in wheat for the farmers of more fertile regions that depend on' rain rather than sub-surface water. XXX With the government program for cotton, and these prospects for livestock and wheat, Amrcica has a base on which to build a new and lasting prosperity. Spragms Speaks to Hope P.-T. A. October Meeting Held in High School Library Thursday The Junior-Senior High School P. T. A. held its regular October meeting Thursday afternoon at the high school library. The president, Mrs. Edwin Dossett. opened the meeting With a prayer and then introduced Mrs, Dorscy McRac as chairman of the day's program which was on the topic, ''Character Education." The first speaker on the program C. C. Spragins who talked on Mammons' Squad Drilled to Meet Visitors' Passes Hot Springs Team and Coach Arrive in City at Noon Friday BEAR STORY FALSE Report That Some of Trojans Are Ineligible Is Quickly Spiked Coach Foy Hammons will wheel out his most powerful artillery hero Friday night against the Hot Springs Trojans with orders to "shoot the works." The game promises to be fast and furious with the Bobcats fighting to avenge a 13-7 defeat suffered last .season at the hands of the Trojans in Hot Springs. The Trojans come to Hope fresh from last week's 52-7 "breather" over Joncsboro High School, a 26-to-O win over Prcscott and a 46-to-O victory over Malvern High School. The Bobcats, who ran themselves dizzy over Hamburg, 71-to-O triumphed over Camdcn 14 to 0, and then went down to defeat in a close tilt here with Fordyce, were pronounced ready • Friday : by Coach Hammons aRainst "anything that Hot Springs has to,offer.", The Bobcats have been drilled hard against the Trojan'running attack and have spent much time in shaping a defense against the Trojan aerial circus, featuring Paul Longlnotli, Hot 'Springs' 137-pound quarterback.- .-, "We're not. conceding the visitors a tiling. The game is going to be hard- fought, and the result a close score," the Bobcat coach said. Hot Springs' Coach From Coach Marvin Perry who arrived with 36 players shortly before noon, came these words: "We know the Bobcats are good, I couldn't tell you to save my soul how the game is going to come out. Either team can win. It's going to be a tough battle, and it wouldn't surprise me a bit If Hammons men beat us by three or four touchdowns. "I think the Bobcats have a better team than Fordyce, and the game last week against Hope was more a slipup than anything else, "A few of my men are bruised up, but the team as a whole is in fair condition for the game, with no serious injuries to any of the regulars,' the Trojan coach said. Asked as to rumors concerning the alleged iiieligibility of two players, Coach Perry said: "If any of my men have been declared ineligible, it s news to me."

"The recent crop estimate indicates that certain states will produce 1,639,474 bales of cotton less than their allotments under the Bankhead Act and that certain other states will produce approximately 431,233 bales more than their allotments under the Bankhead Act.
