Walnut Ridge attempted eight, completed three one lad none intercepted. Hope lost 41 yards on penalties to 10 for Walnu Ridge.

Others getting chances to play wei May, Murphy, Simm, Snyker, Conway £tuart, Keith, L. Jones C. Bund; Bradshaw and Jewell. For Walnut Ridge, Quarterback Co fey, Smith, fullback, and W. *Mill gan. 220-pound end, showed up best. B. Wilkinson, Walnut Ridge's center, hustled on the defense and was in several plays.

Controlled Fields, Safe for Friendly Ships type of mine, not widely used, is the controlled mine. It is designed ofr defense and i.s laic! in channels or harbors. The mine field is conrlolled through a station on shore. The mines, hooked up with wires, can be set so litey wil not cxpode when friendy ships pnss. They can be set from the .station, owever, so the mines ie ready U- explode the same as self-acting mines.. A mine with a 1011-pound charge is destructive ut a distance of 14.7 feet. With a 200-pound charge, the destructive radius increases to 20.5 feet: and for fiOQ-pound of explosives, the mine's damage extends 31.7 feet. To prevent expjoding mines from detonating others nearby, they are laid never closer to each other than eight times the destructive distance. Mines are laid irregularly so a ship entering a field usually will hit a mine. Mine-laying craft carry from 50 tn SI) mines, released from a chute at hte stern. The standard light mine-layer weighs 1190 tons. It is 315 feet long, HO feet wide and me feet high. It carries five guns. It can load 80 mines and is manned by a crew of 130 men. Men on t mine-sweeper have probably the most nerve-wracking navy •job. They pick up enemy mines. Sweepers work in pairs, a long wire dragging between. In hunting under- vuter mines, the bight of the wire is beneath the surface at a depth uwer than the level of the average nine. "Fishing" for Explosives After the last war, stray floating nines were swept up with a floating me buuwed by a string of floats. When the dragging wire crosses a mine anchor rope the mine drags ilong. The crew tells when it has n 'bile." in much the same way a fisherman. The mine is brought to the surface and detonated at some distance by gunfire. The difficulty is that the minesweeper itself has little protection against itself striking a mine. Some- imes a net extends from the prow the wire netting itself may set off the mine. Mine-sweepers — mine-layers — are built with low draughts and so arc able to aviod striking some of the deeper mines. Mine-sweepers varj I rum 250 to 900 tons. A typical 275 months. They want a lasting peace which rests on respect of the pledged word and on honor, which guarantees the security of France and of all nations. "This peace excludes all domination in Europe. Jt can be founded only on the right of peoples to life and liberty. Our duty is to be worthy of our soldiers who are waging war to defend our territory, our independence. They will carry on the war which has been imposed on us and will cary it on to the victory which alone will permit assurance of a regime of real justice and lasting peace in Europe." General Gafmelin, commander-in.- chief of the French and British armies conferred Friday with Maj. Gen. Sir Edmund Ironside, chief of the British defense staff. They were accompanied Little Rock Noses (Continued trom Page One) by their air commanders as well as General Georges, French army group comander, who is in general charge of French operations on the northern flank of the Western front.

Tractor Replaces 3 to 5 Families Machinery Causing- Important Shift in Farm Population NEW ORLEANS — (/P)~ Mechani- /ation of the cotton kingdom, proceeding at a terrific pace, has displaced thousands of farm families. Most rapid mechanization has oc- cured in the southwest, where Texas farmers have added more than 7,00 tractors per year on the average or the past decade. The trend is widespread also in the )ld South. A WPA research report lows that in the 1930-38 period the umebr of tractors increased 122 per ent in the western cotton areas; 27 per cent in the delta region, nd 90 per cent in the eastern colon states. All of this means thai fewer human it-ings are needed to produce cotton. A National Resources Committee re- lort says the number of man-hours equired to produce a bale cotton was 04 in 1880, 285 in 1900 and 235 in 1930. A WPA report says the average has been reduced from 271 in 1907-11 to 18 in 1933-36. C. Horace Hamilton, economist of he Texas Agricultural Experiment itation, says: "The displacement of from three to 'ive families by one tractor is not uncommon. Assuming that one tractor will displace one family only, more ban GO.OOO farm families have probably been displaced from Texas farms ince 1900. "Many move to poor farms, unsuited to cotton production with tractors. A large number migrate to towns and cities to become common laborers. Many remain in the open country as farm or common laborers. "The displaced family faces the prospect of a lower income. The typical farm tenant in the high plains or the blacklands may be expected to earn a net income of from $800 to $1,000 annually, even with cotton prices as they are tixUy. As either a commor or an agricultural laborer the same tenant cannot be expected to earn more than $250 to $300. bounds. Another hero came in at that point. Benjy Waddle, taking up where Carl Baer left off last season, substituted and sent the ball through the uprights for the extra point and the ball game as it proved. El Dorado Smashes" Spn HOT SPRINGS, Ark.—The fast and deceptive El Dorado £Iigh Schoo Wildcats, featuring as fine and deadly an air attack as ever seen in the stadium, 'made the Hot Springs Trojan look slow and sluggish as they took i conference 'game, 20 to 0, before crowd of 5,000 Friday night. Coach Allen Berry's boys lost n time in scoring. With the ball on th Trojans' 45. Blackwell, El Dorado half back, opened up the air attack. Hi pas to Brown was good for 30 yards White and Reese then took it to th 2-yard marker. After the Trojan lin held for two plays, Reese circled rigl end for the touchdown. North Little Rock Wins om 165,000 to 237,000; the National uard just beginning to increase from 35,000. But already other emergency mea- .tres are taking shape, such as organ- :ing a strong striking force. The bird Corps that is to be formed at ort Benning, Ga., with its own special orps troops, is the first such organ- on since the World War. .In it will e three Regular divisions, reorganized ccording to new plans into relatively mall, "strem-lined," hard-hitting nits armed to the teeth with modern veapons. Once ready, this force of ome 40,000 men would be "first to ight" whether in defense of our Atlantic coast, or in Panama or elsewhere. Some Material Obsolete, Other Is Lacking But before this new Corps or others .hat may organized later, or the 5th Division planned for Fort Sheridan, 111., and the Gth for Fort Lewis, Wash., can carry out any mission, they must trained .in team-work under the new scheme of things— wTiich means more maneuvers, , , T ., And although National Guard Divisions are not at present being reorgan- zed, they need more field traning. They can get it now only in the South, where the old World War cantonments still afford a framework. Also the Guardsmen must be re-equipped, for many of their cannon, rifles and such else are .becoming obselete. They have no gas masks. And they must learn to use this "new stuff" while more than doubling their numbers — a colossal task even were all equipment availabel. s .... But that takes from 14 to 18 months after a contract is let. No wonder an Army more than twice as large as our present one, raised in a few months would need emergency help, especially in the "urgent items" that cannot be bounght from civilian makers, such as the new Garand semi-automatic rifle, tanks, baynotas. These items might cost $300,000,000. The expense NORTH LITTLE ROCK— A surpris- , of the whole expansion would go in'~ ' ..... J -— '- -' --•"• - ••* ™«"" ing disappointment in their first two starts this season, the North Little Rock Wildcats finally came to life in scoring nn easy 33-to-O victory over the Forrest City Mustangs here Friday night. Superior in every department and taking it easy in the last two quarters, the Wildcats tallied single touchdowns in Ihe first three periods and pushed across two more in the last. Coach Bob Cowan used reserves freely with virtually every membe ron the squad getting in the game. Forrest City never had a chance. The Mustang running attack never got going, mainly because of North Little Rock's charging line. In Vernon Turk, Forrest City had a one-man backfield. Turk also flashed as a good kicker. However, Turk wasn't enough and the nearest the Mustangs got to the Wildcat goal was the 45-yard line in the fourth quarter. to hundreds of millions, but many people here seem to think it would be worth it. The rtend was indicated not only by President Roosevelt's action, but by generally favorable reaction to General Pershing's birthday statement two weeks ago calling for recruiting the Army up to full peacetime strength of 730,000. This recruiting, for both Regulars and National Guard, would be voluntary. Too Late to Classify Strayed: Bay horse mule, age 4 yrs, Wt. — 900 Ibs. no marks. Albert McCorkle, Hope Rt. 3. 7-3tp.
