PAGE SIX HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Wednesday, January 5,1038 Newest U. S. Ocean Port Is Framed in Mountains, 2OO Miles From the Sea By PHIL SLVNOTT NEA Service Staff Correspondent } THE DALLES. Or-.-.—Two hundred; miles from the sea, high in n frame of; mountain walls, there stand here great j docks and piers, vast ocean freight ter- j fninals, all the equipment of a great i 6ccan port. When the ship loc-k at Bonneville. Dam, blocking the Columbia river 44 j miles below the Dalles, is opened Jan- j Uary 10. the United St-ites will have a j j£-eat new ocean port, a new deep- j »ater outlet for the wheat, fruit, and '• timber of the Columbia river basin. : The great dam at BonneviHo is add- i ing 28 feet to the depth of the river j at The Dalles, and creating n 35-foot I channel from the Bonneville ship lock i to The DaMes. Scon ocean-going ships! will be able to lad here. River craft i will be able to navigate many miles i upstream, for far above the Grand: Coulee Dam is also regulating the! river. Between them. it.?y will open 1 eastern Oregon and Washington and i western Idaho to river and ocean traf- '• fie. i Build Oil Terminal ! Already a 1000-foot public marine' freight terminal stands at The Dalles, : as it has stood all during the past summer. Then it was a strange sight. 1 High and dry on the hillside above the; river, before the gradually-rising wat- 1 6r began to approach it. Private interests are also building an oil terminal for unloading gasa- line from the California wells and re- Two hundred miles from the sea, these new deep-water ocean docks and piers nt The Dulles, Ore., stand, as srcn above, nestled against a. mountain background and without sign of water beside them. But opening of the ship locks at Bomierville Dam will fill the busin nnd mu'.cc it into a great new inland-ocean port. T'ii.« is your ncwtixiptr. Writt to it.

Each ship must be raised 63 feet at ordinary low water in the lock, which is 500 feet long and 76 feet wide. The lower lock gates are more than 100 feet tall, as high as a 10-story building. All tht machinery is electrically-driven. With the County Agent Clifford L.

However, che proportion of the state with large numbers of weevils in hibernation is much less than it was in 1931, since weevils were not abundant in more than the southern third of the state ..efore they went into hibernation. Jomo scattered infestations occurred elsewhere, but not enough to cause early general injury in 1938. An abundance of weevils in hibernation does not necessarily mean that weevils will be destructive the following year. 'Ihat will be determined by the weather after cotton begins forming squares. However, an abundance of hibernating weevils precedes heavy, early injury. Over the greater part The proper name for the disease is botulism; and, similar to ptomaine poisoning in the human being, it in caused by a toxin produced by the putrefactive organism, clostridium Bo- tulinum. "Limber neck" may be caused by the ingestion of fly maggots taken from decaying animal carcasses or spoiled food, from spoiled canned goods, or from feed that has become damp and been allowed to remain in the feed hoppers until spoilage has set in. Symptoms are usually dullness, paralysis of neck and wing muscles, followed by a slate of coma. Death is usually very rapid after injection of the toxic organism or the toxin. Treatment for poultry affected consists of one-fourth pound of salts pel- gallon drinking water as soon as indications ot the presence of the disease are noticed. Botulinum antitoxin will fave the birds. Statement of The First National Bank Hope, Arkansas At the Close of Business December 31, 1937 RESOURCES Loans $ 110,965.68 C. C. C.

Four Rules for Safety Driving a motor car would be a much safer and pluasantcr occupation if every driver would follow these simple, fundamental rules: 1. Observe the reasonable speed limits posted on the highway. If, how- c-ver, road conditions are slippery, nr <.thcrwi.se b;ic], u.se common sense, cle- cTCfi.^e your speed and increa.-e your cuiili'in. 2. Keep to the right—the "outer liinc" on any thoroughfare, except when passing either cars. Many motorists seem entirely ignorant of what is meant by "outer lane." But more often it is a wilful heecllessness of rules and the rights nf others. 3. Pass the auto ahead only on its left-hand side and only after .sounding horn. After passing do not swing back until you are far enough ahead to see this car in your reav-view mirror. Disregard of this rule is the cause of many fatal side-swiping accidents. •1. Drive only nt safe speeds so that you can stop in plenty of time should emergency ari.se. Let your speed be NOTICE-AUTO OWNERS The City Council Tuesday night adopted a motion fixing February 28 as the final date to purchase 1938 city automobile license without penalty.

ALBERT GRAVES MAYOR ot the family pets';—not. just "imp shots" snatched hurriedly without much attention to idea or background, but pictures with expression and action that give a genuine key to the pet's character? Pictures like this are well worth all the planning and patience; they require and incloors is a good place to take thorn because it is so much easier to associate the pet with a "home" background that identities it as a member of the family. Frequently humor can be obtained In these indoor pictures—a frolicsome kitten tangled up in a ski-in ot yarn and looking biiillctl, or snati-li- ing at. th'j dribble of wntur from a faucet; a puppy barkint; pxc-itt-illy at a rtihli-r nioiiso or--as lic-n;-- llioimlnfully planning fi bit of ItttBi- writing. J'ii-uires that prosf-m the aniuiul in a ditfiiiiU; mood or illumliuitu its character aljotind for the watchful photographer—-the Scotty, like a little olcl man, his head cocked to omj sill'; and inquiry In hU sh;i bruwc.'d eys; the ma.ii.'Stic P'-r ru.', dignifr-cl in ropoae, paws tendf-tl and chin sunk clerp in sofr. fur of his chest; the mournful- c-ypd bloodhound, the silkc-n-coutod crillk' vi')i hv.v.vn ryr-s and thoughtful, Ihu There is a delightful field liuro, too, for the photographer who likes to experiment with lighting effects. Consider, for example;, the long- furred white cat posed on a frintlow- sill in silhouette, so that tho outdoor light, diffused through the window curtains, surrounds him with a bright silken glow. Indoor animal pictures can be made either with daylight or amateur flood bulbs. Stipersensitlve film should be used, because of its extra speed. Where direct sunlight streams into a room and illuminates tho subject, exposures can he almost »s brief as outdoors. Where sunlight is diffused through curtains, it should be aided with amateur floodlights. At night, two big No. 2 amateur flood bulbs in reflectors four feet from the subject give enough light for snapshots with box cameras; the lens should be at its widest opening. With lenses marked In "f" numbers, f.ll at 1/25 second or f.6.3 at 1/50 second is about right. Dark-coated pets demand more light, or lights I'ioaer up. Portrait aUnotimeuts can be used over the lens, for close-ups of small pets, without changing the exposure time. It's all simple—BO fire away. John, van Guilder.
