Europeans J»LENTY~TO SPARE America Has 13 Billions —More Than Half World's Gold NEV/ YORK.-W—A turning in the economic tide may carry with it some of the vast gold holdings of the United States. An outgoing tide of money last Week reversed the movement Which added nearly $6,000,000,000 to the Country's gold store in less than four , years—and threatened to transfer it to Europe. r itinerant capital, foreign exchange men said, had resumed its tramp about the money centers of the world, again disturbed by talk of a rise in the price M gold to .check a fall in commodity prices. This time the talk concerned the dollar, apparently suspect among timid holders of liquid capital because of the downswing in prices and business in this country. With a $12,800,000,000 gold supply, more than half the world's recorded monetary reserves, the United States could afford to be complacent about prospect of returning some of it to Europe, bankers held. They have recognized part of the metal hoard was subject to recall. Gold Exports Seen So extensive became the shift of capital out of the dollar, as evidenced in- a rise in foreign currencies and boost in the London open-market price for gold last week, bankers prepared for possible substantial gold exports. Some figured that this country has yielded gold lately to facilitate the j capital movement, supplying it fromj holdings of the dollar stabilization fund. The fund's holdings are considered minor 'compared with the huge store acknowledged among the treasury's assets. To most bankers, a prospective cut in the country's gold supply was significant chiefly as a symptom of the turn in the economic life. Once more, as'they saw it, the demand for gold in With the Hemp stead Home Agent By MELVA BULLlRaTON Christmas Canning Home Demonstration club women in Hempstead county are getting ready for Santa Claus, and making many of the gifts that will find their way to the Christmas tree. Attractive boutonniers made from nuts, burrs, seeds, pods, or grasses, are suggested by Miss Sybil D. Bates, extension specialist in home industries of the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, as unusual gifts which can be made at home. The materials should be gathered when they are mature so that they will be tough enough to wear well, and the nuts should be heated to kill any worms or eggs, she cautions. The nuts and pods can be painted any color desired. Corn husks dyed dark brown, dark red, rich deep blue, and dark green, can be used to make the leaves. A very fine wire is used to make the boutonniere. Each nut must be wired. Acorn cups and acorns may have wire drawn through with darning needle. Acorns should be glued in the cup to keep from turning. Directions for making the boutonnieres are given by Miss Bates. The stems and leaves are made from corn husks. Leaves can be cut in any shape desired. Gather the wide end together and fasten with a wire or a coarse string. To make the stem, tear the shuck the length of the shuck and Vfe inch wide. With the wire attached to the nut cross them below the nut and slip strip of shuck through the wires. Cross the ends of the shuck first in back, then in front of the wire. Blue at the end and twist the wire to hold it in place. Each leaf and nut should have a stem. When separate leaves and nuts are finished, arrange them together attractively and wire the stems together tightly. A shuck dyed the color of the leaves and stems should be used to tie the boutonniere. Sew the boutonniere to a safety pin or a clip to make it easy to fasten to dress or suit. These are interesting to make are are excellent for gifts, says Miss Bates.

Cash in Demand Along the business front the urge for cash had become obvious in falling security and commodity prices and a desire to turn, inventories into cash, causing buyers to mark time and curtailment in production. Renewed gold hoarding in London, however, did not attract attention until the fall in security and commodity prices in this country had gone on for several weeks. Wall streeters assumed that many holders of liquid capital had a "hunch" deflation in prices and a fall in business might force another advance in the domestic price of gold as a price- raising expedient. "fhe "hunch" seemebd based partly on recognition that the administration could raise the price from $35 to above $41 an ounce under powers originally one of the most popular recreational activities in the entire world, says Miss June Donahue, extension specialist in community activities of the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. The rural groups of Arkansas have long used this mode of "homemade fun" for mingling with their neighbors and developing their musical talents, and it is one of Arkansas' recreational traditions. Variety may be enjoyed in a song program, for the ballads of old and the swing songs of today all have their own kind of beauty and appeal. An instrument—piano, guitar, or accordion—of course adds to the effect and is an aid in learning new melodies, but is not necessary, loveliest singing capella," that is, without accompaniment, says Miss Donahue. This type of singing is especially recommended for part singing where the harmony Japan's "Big Push" on Shanghai For weeks every attack was met by a Chinese counterattack on the hard-fought battle line around Shanghai.

ON H DAY Be presen tat i ve JACK WITT Christmas Gifts Christmas gifts that can be made at home will be the subject of dis- j cussion at many of the home demonstration club meetings this month. Gifts marie from pine burrs, gourd;;, cotton balls, spools, old boxes and crates have been choice materials for gifts thus far. Miss Sybil D. Bates, extension specialist in home industries, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, makes several suggestions for inexpensive gift making. An attractive knitting bag can be made from Vz yard of burlap or linen 36 inches wide and the same amount of soft material for the lining. Any I type decoration may be used, however, ! very effective floral designs can be i worked out from old discarded felt i hats. Embroidery designs can be used i to follow. Cut-outs from the felt are basted in place and made secure with buttonhole stitch which also adds a decorative note. An Aunt Jemina Twine holder is a gay and useful kitchen accessory for which instructions are given by Miss Bates. Cut a cocoanut through the center crosswise. Remove the cocoanut and have the shell dry. With glue, place two black buttons in place for the eyes. Bore a hole for the mouth and color it red with paint or crayola. For the bandana, cut a large red bandana through tie center diagonally. I Measure up 4V: inches from the i center point and iraw a line straight 'across.

Electric eyes, charged fences, airplanes and the radio are being discussed as weapons against outlaws who cost the high-heeled, big hatted cattlemen thousands of dollars cauh year. 'Rustling today is a greater menace in the west than it ever was." says Dr. B. F. Davis, secretary of the Colorado Stock Grogers ami Feeders association. The cause: high cattle prices. "We aren't dealing now with gents who were handy with a lariat and a hot branding iron," Davis explains. "We have to contend with toughs from the city, organized into gangs and equipped with high speed automobiles, rifles, skinning knives and plenty o£ nerve. Sell to HutcliiTs "With ranges fenced and pavcrl highways running through the cuttle country," Davis explains, "it is a simple job for a couple of men in a fast car to drive to a pasture, throw n .spotlight into the face of a steer, blinding him, and then shoot him down. "They skin these animals and drive two or three hundred miles to a crooked butcher who 'fences' the meat, selling it over his counter," Davis hays. Cuttle association.* are offering rewards, western states are tightening cattle inspection laws and peace officers are forming interstate pacts to put a stop to the rubber-tired thieves. Radios Now Used But this hasn't been entirely effective. So Davis hopes now to find an "electric eye" and charged fences which might do the trick. Davis says he has In mind an instrument of the present "electric eye" type, which casts n bcnm from n sender to a receiver, which would send an alarm when the beam was broken. Anyone passing through an entrance to n range would break the beam. A charged fence is even more practical, Davis believes. If the wire were cut, the circuit would be broken nnd an nlnrm would sound at the ranch house, which might be a mile or two away. t Radios now nrc being used by pence officers to warn authorities of adjoining counties when there has been a cattle raid. Several ranchers in the west also have airplanes to patrol large segments of range country. The rustling is not confined to cattle. Hogs, sheep, even turkeys, are being "taken for a ride."
