At a meeting held in the City Hall Monday night this quota was accepted and Edward F. McFaddin was unanimously elected chairman of this drive. Those present at the meeting were reminded that during the last war this county oversubscribed every drive it w;is asked to put on. The hope was expressed that this city and county will follow the practice or example of other sections of the country where workers in industrial plants stores and offices arc donating the equivalent of a halt rtnys wages, (his suggestion was most favorably received. Speakers will be furnished to plants and other organizations de-siring such help and inspiration upon request to the Chairman, Air. McFaddin. All money contributed in this drive will be used for actual, present, urgent war casualty work, none of it remaining m the county or city. The increasing war lime responsibilities of the American Red Cross are a real challenge to American patriotism and generosity. Let us lose no lime in OVERSUBSCRIBING this quota. SPG (o Kcspoml Major Strcckcr appealed Wednesday for- the second lime to Southwestern Proving Ground workers for donations lo the Red Cross Fund Responding generously to the first call PluJecl employes contributed over $2000 to the local board. Now once again an organized drive is under way on the reservation. The following persons have been reappointed to receive the spontaneous donations of the employes: Area Engineer's Office, Alma Camp- Architecl-Enginecr, Helen Mavity Contractor's Office, H. C. Lorcnzcn, There is no coercion in the drive for authorities feel that under the dire circumstances, workers have realized the urgent need of funds and will respond willingly to the call. The spirit of nationalism, sacrifice, and untiring effort has invaded the Southwestern Proving Ground as employes seize this opportunity to do their part in the powerful drive toward national and world-wide security. You Furnish the Bride, They Pup Up the Rest HALLSTEAD, Pa. —(&)— When Justice of the Peace William Clayton Carl marries a couple, he provides the trimmings in the form of ice cream, cake and flowers.

Mrs. Carl gathers the flowers from the gardens surrounding their home. Machine Aids Weary Math Prof MANSFIELD, O. -(#>- Dan B Habcr, a junior high school mathematics teacher here invented a mechanical grade averager that is a great tune-saver. "A Russian adding abacus-centuries old m principle—that I saw in a hotel m Odessa in 1938 while abroad gave mo the ifcrm of an idea for the' averaging machine." Haber said. The machine is so simple that a fourth grade child can operate it, but development of the calculator took months of mathematical gymnastics and planning. It is operated by means of a "puncher placed in a slot opposite the grade to be averaged. The machine computes averages for from one to 24 degrees with the result appearing in a small traveling "window." History of Col. Garrett Hope Man Transferred to High Post at Washington Lt. Col.

Courthouse Here Judge J. H. Shaw, Executive Director of the Southwest Arkansas Regional Housing Authority, Monday advised J. P. Duffie, the Commissioner of Hempstead County, that a meeting would be held at the Court House in Hope on January 20, 1942, at 10 a. m. at which time information will be given concerning the United States Housing program and applications will be taken for the houses which wiU be built in Hempstead county under this program. The purpose of the Housing Authority is to provide an opportunity for farm owners, tenants and share-croppers, wh oare themselves unable to do so, to have adequate and modern housing facilities at a price that they can pay. The United States Housing Authority has already assisted over nine thousand families to obtain better houses and living conditions and ?400 000 has been alloted to this part of the state to build these houses. Any farmer, tenant or share-cropper is eligible to obtain one of these houses if their income does not exceed five times the rental value of the property and other conditions of the Authority are met. The conditions are very simple and the plan is easy to work. Everyone who has taken advantage of the plan is highly pleased with his home, conditions and payments. Briefly, the plan is that the farm owner will deed to the Authority one acre of land and for a rental of only 56.00 per months this Authority will build the home, care for all taxes and depreciation. The cooperating agencie^ in Hempstead County are the County Judge, County Agent, Agriculture Adjustment Administration, Farm Security Administration and the Department of Public Welfare. Any of these agencies will be glad to explain to anyone interested just how one of these modern homes can be obtained. Jap Invaders Only Few Mile: From Capital U. S.
