PAGE SIX HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS By George Ross Rudy Vallet? His BclUtlcrs Would Hardly Know Htm! NEW YORK—When we were shown into Rudy Vallee's dressing room the other night (a social call>, he was hard at work on a column he contributes monthly to n radio magazine. He takes great pride of authorship in it, to,, for the curly-headed crooner claims that he never has permitted a line to be whosted under his own signature. Vallee, incidentally, has gone into the proprietary side of the song business. He owns the rights to a number of tunes and derives royalties from others. Vallee needs no justification from anybody at this late date, but an unfortunate misconception still persists about him. His detractors say that he is a pretentious and petty person off the stage and they point to a ridiculous set of house rules he once compiled for the guests at his Maine lodge, as evidence of his nimcompoopery. As a matter of /act, Vallee has outgrown many of the affections that did him harm in previous years; and many of the unpleasant traits that he developed while he was being catapulted into sensational success have disappeared. Visitors will find him a serious- minded young man who has an absorbing interest in his work. He is under the imvression, naive perhaps, that his songs are works of art. That, at least, is not a pose, but an honest belief. He is an astute business man, as the denizens of Tin Pan Alley know. And he never has lost the shyness that has made him a much misunderstood crooner during his career. Life Story of a Hit Wonders never cease in Tin Pan Alley. The boys who pondered the sudden success of an old Italian folk song, '"'Vieni Vieni," now are brooding over another dark horse melody. This one goes by the title of "Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen," and that's Yiddish rather than German. It is a swingy thing that sets the feet to dancing. During the past month it has been played and sung intermittently across the country and may become the hit tune of the networks. "Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen" has been the merry serenade at countless Jewish vedding parties since time well-nigh immemorial; and on the lower east j side, the Rumanian inns have been em- j ploying it for a theme song for twenty j years. But it seems truit a Harlem harmony team wandered into one of these Ghetto clubs last spring and was taken by the melody. They hung around long enough to memorize it in the original Yiddish and the next thing anyone knew, "Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen" had spread like musical wildfire along dusky Lenox Avenue. Then it gravitated toward the swing dens of Fifty Second Street and later, it was brought out in sheet music. And now a Jewish wedding march has become a hit Milling Cympathy Helen Morgan, that incomparable singer of melancholy ballads, it notoriously generous with any favor- seekers. An incurable sentimentalist, she wilts under the recital of any maudlin tale and she has a penchant for giving flway whatever trinket panhandlers request. The other night, she returned to her table at a midtown club with a suspicious moisture about her eyes. '"You're crying, Helen," her companion said, "why?" La Morgan applied a kerchief to her eyelids. "That poor lady in the powder room," she has only an old- fashioned icebox at home. I helped her with a first payment on a mechanical refrigerator."

Goodhar farm south of Hope on the Patrons road. C. F. Baber, wh operates a farm owned by J. L. Gooclbar on the Patmos road just south of Hope, a co-operator with the Bodcaw Creek Project af the Soil Conservation 5_-ervice. has found that strip cropping with contour cultivation is one of the most efficient and economical means of erosion control. Strip crps are narrow bands of close- ~" growing, librous rooted crops such as oats, rye and vetch, sorguhm or les- pededexa seeded on the contour and alternating with much wider bands of the more erosive row crops. Contour cultivation is the practice of running the rows of cotton, corn or watermelons on the level as near as possible. A combination of the two practices $P€AKING OF S^FeT;/ r —w - -,- -*- - fc -. 1^&m^ f\^^-'^:rN^^r.-^<y ONE LIGHT LIGHTHOUSES DO A GOOD WITH OWE LIGHT EVEN A PRIZE-f 1C, HTER.CA.N DO sofAE GOOD, Even WITH OUT Of- COMMISSION MUST HAVE TWO GOOD UGffT6 Tp DRIVE SAFELV AT NIGHT .' . - found by. the farmers of Southwest Arkansas to give adequate protection to thousands of acres of cultivated land which is eroding at a rapid rate. This erosion resistant band of dense vegetables, commonly called a strip crop, tends to slow down the velocity of water, spread out the flow, and cause it to drop the load of soil car ried in suspension, thus preventing the loss of soil from fields. Experiment Station results show that a combination ot strip cropping and contour cultivation reduces soil losses to one- fourth the original'amount. Fortunately the best strip crops are the best feed crops, thus helping to balance the regular cropping system. Oats, sorghum and peas, rye and vetch, lespedeza and sagrain make the most effective strip crops. Farmers who are practicing strip cropping find that they have larger feed supplies than ever before. with home folks here. Mr. and Mrs. T. R. Cteel and son Tommy and Mrs. E.

Even after crying out bids 7 hours a day, Luckies never bother my throat in the least." (Reason: the exclusive "Toasting" process expels certain kritants found in all tobacco.) "In every section of the Tobacco Belt where I auctioneer," Mr. Cooper adds," I've noticed tobacco men smoking Luckies." Are you benefiting by the experience of the tobacco experts?... Sworn records show that among independent tobacco experts, Luckies have twice, yes — twice, as many exclusive smokers as have all other cigarettes combined.
