HOM STAft, HOPE; ARKANSAS Friday, January 30, 1942 Fanners Apply for Emergency Loans on Crop County Farmers Asking Loans to Finance 1942 Crops Mr. O. L. Peebles, Field Supervisor for the Memphis Emergency Crop and Feed Loan office, stated that farmers of Hempstead County are now applying for Emergency Crop Loans to finance the production of 1942 crops. Applications are being received at Local Mid-South Office in Hope. Emergency Crops Loans are made to small farmers, either owners or tenants, who have land to farm ,\vho have implements and workstock or power to farm 'with, who need funds to meet production costs, and who are unable to obtain loans on reasonable terms from any other source, or from production credit associations. Such loans are made in amounts com- hiensurate with an applicant's actual cash needs in producing his 1942 crops, are secured by a first mortgage on the crops financed, and bear interest at the rate of 4 per cent per annuir.. In addition, to crop loans, Emergency Feed Loans, to finance the purchase and production of feed, are made to those small farmers who are maintaining livestock to be fed for the market, as breeding , animals with the increase to be marketed, or for the production of dairy products, wool, etc. The same rules of eligibility and the same requirements govern the consideration of feed loan applications, except that sxich loans must be secured by a first mortgage on the Ettick to be fed. All farmers who apply for Emergency Crop and Feed loans will be urged to plant and cultivate crops, both for sale and for home or farm •use, according to thtf Farm Defense Program sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture. Eligible farmers can 'receive loans based on both their usual operating expenses and their expenses incident to complying with the Defense Pro' gram. All applicant will be required to plant home gardens and to produce sufficient feed for their work- stock and subsistence animals. Emergency Crop and Feed loans are available to all farmers who can establish eligibility according to the terms of the loan regulations and j authorizing Act—the loans are not restricted to selected .applicants. Prior indebtedness will not prevent favorable consideration of an otherwise eligible applicant's request, proyid-j ';ed non-payment was due to reasons Jbeyond the debtor's control. A portion —* the 'loan" proceeds, sufficient to :'minimum preserv^neihdiS.'.'roay- be ^ wseU immediately?'upon "approval an application,' with' the bulk of ithe loan being withheld 'until crop 'time.

Prescott News By HELEN HESTERLY Auto Mechanics Class A National Defense Class in Automobile Mechanics started last Monday in the Langley building located on West Elm Street. Leon Carruthers, shop manager of 282 Garage, will teach the class. It is sponsored and paid for by the National Government to train young men to fill the demand for mechanical workers. There is no charge for the course, and it is open to men between the ages of 16 and 30. The classes will meet on Mondays, Wednesdays and : Self Control in Wartime Or Supreme „ Sacrifice of Great American Girdle By DOROTHY ROE ' _ AP Fashion Editor We'll fight the good fight, We'll leap the last hurdle; For might and for right We'll give up our girdle. :Told that the horrors of war may include even the supreme sacrifice of the Great American 'Girdle, women have decided that Sherman was right. Reaction to the stern edict of OPM has been varied ,as women learned the awful truth—that the rubber shortage is going to affect spare tires in more ways than one. Some figure-conscious females, bound for support in the crises, have rushed hysterically to the stores to buy girdles by the dozen, unmindful of the fact that rubber is constitutionally opposed to hoarding. Other and wiser consumers have inquired into how our Allies survived the girdle blitz, and have found, to their amazed delight, that the solution is simple as stitching a seam—British women, ungirdled but unbow.ed, are : making their own restraining garments. Quick as a bunny an American pat- tern company leaps to the rescue with a simplified pattern for a home-made girdle abiding by all priority restrictions. Similar to those now being worn by our English sisters, it is made of white outing flannel and dispenses with zippers as well as all elastic parts. You run it up on the sewing machine, snug it in place with safety pins, and there you are, with your streamlined figure practically undamaged by the war. Ribbon garters tie through elelets in girdle and stocking tops. If priorities take away even our safety pins, you may fasten the girdle with ribbon or tape laces. All of which provides that priority is the mother of invention. Telephone 163 Thursdays from 6 p. m. to 11 p. m. for ten weeks. Upon completion of the course, students will 'be given a certificate stating the kinds and number of hours of instruction. These certificates will be recognized by the employment services of the state and nation.

GLOVER A I* Fi-nture Service Writer Uncle Sam's 20 neighbors to the south are one vast storehouse of supplies for the tirscnal of democracy and their trained numpower could be the deciding factor in any military defense of Pan-American solidarity. Here ai-e how the figures line up: Military—The 20 have approximately 400,000 active soldiers, 14,000 air force warriors, and trained army and nit- reserves of another 1,710,0000—in all, <:,100,000 who know how to bear arms. Economic—Before the war, trade with Latin America accounted for roughly 22 per cent of U. S. imports, 20 per cent of exports; in the last two years I here has been an important upswing in both phases. (This commerce was worth $1,087,102,000 in 1939.) Our direct investments are $2,840,000,000, our loans $1,610,331,000. In raw materials the vnlue of the 20 Tui- tions exceeds monetary bounds—we couldn't chew gum or play phonograph records without them, and Latin America either does produce or could probably produce all 14 of the strategic materials (except silk) listed by the U. S. as essential to warfare. I: Raw Material Here's a look at those materials and the countries which can supply us: Antimony, Mexico and Peru; manganese, Brazil and Cuba: tin and tungsten, Bolivia; quartz crystal, Brazil; mica, Peru and Chile; mercury, Mexico; chromium, Cuba. Ecuador can to revive Brazil's once-great rubber industry. Costa Rica is experimentnl- ly producing manila fiber. Control of the rich resources of the Americas and agreements with most of the 20 nations to supply Uncle Sam exclusively is the result of lonf, and. painstaking planning, not a mere accident of inter-American friendship Goose Pimples on the Goose Steppers 57 ' " f,~ A >''*«i«« V Miss Inez Glaze is spending a few days in Dallas, Texas.

What her thought produced was this: "Loren Oliver's all right, of course. But what does a movie star see in him?" "Meow, with whiskers," I said. "Don't be silly," she said. "It's nothing to me. But I don't understand it. She's so lovely—" "He's male, white and twenty- one, isn't he?" "I suppose he is, at that," she said. I pretty near said, "Keep it in mind," but held in. After that, I'd notice her watching him with a puzzled frown. Sometimes they'd walk around together, taking Dolf along, or without a chaperone. "He has got a kind of queer charm, Mom. I'll give you that." Most of her spare time, though, she spent with Angel. She was making him study, too. He cleaned up all right; passed his Am. Eth. test honestly this time. All that was now left of the hangover was his thesis on the Wandos. "I told you Oliver was a rat," he said. "You've got to show me," I said. "And me," Juddy said. "I've got the proof all right. He's been taking gold out of his stockade right along. Your gold, Juddy." "How do you know?" "The best job you ever did for yourself was sicking me onto the Wando diggings. Over in the library I got on thfe trail of a missing report and followed it into the department's private office. There, sticking out of the Tambay pigeon-hole, was a heavy Manila envelope marked, 'Estimated Value of Gold; Tambay. Private! 1 Before I could get it open—" "Before you could what, Angel?" Juddy said. "Well, why not? It was in your interest, honeybunch. Anyway old Gracely, head of the Am. Eth department, wambled in anc grabbed it out of my hand and gave me the bum's rush." "I think Loren Oliver has some explaining to do," Juddy said. "I'll say he has! Let's go over there." Juddy thought for a minute. 'No, Angel. I'll handle this. Mom and I." I hope never to see a colder eye :han hers when we stood Oliver up in his enclosure. "What about the gold you found on my property, Loren?" was what she said, but the general effect was Prisoner-is-there-any- reason-w h y-y o u-should-not-be- h a n g e d-b y-the-neck-and-may- God-have-mercy-on-your-soul! * * * JQOC'S face wen£ deadpan. "I shall have to refer you to President Gilchrist." "I'm asking you, Loren Oli- This time he didn't answer. Just stood there, looking sunk. "And you had the nerve to try and make me believe that Angel isn't straight!" "I never said he wasn't straight by his own standards. I think he probably is. But his standards might not be yours." I put in my oar. "This isn't getting anybody anywhere." Juddy wasn't through with him, though. I think she was trying to fortify her case for herself. It was hard to look at Doc and believe he was a crook. She said: "I suppose you'll claim it wasn't for yourself but the University." "I claim nothing," he said. "Then you know that any metals or ores mined at Tambay belong to the estate. Those are the exact'words. Aren't they?" "I believe they are." "And you've been pretending to be a friend of mine—of ours." "Pretending?" he said, and I thought I saw her blink. "I'm going to ask Maurie Sears if we can't have the lease vacated for fraud!" Her lips began to tremble. "I don't want to breathe the air till you're oil the place forever," she said. By this time the poor guy must have had about all he could take. He turned on her and his manner wasn't much pleasanter than hers. "If there is nothing further, may I remind you that you are trespassing on university property?" For all Doc's frozen-faced referring, I didn't go to Prexy Gilchrist. After turning it over in my mind, I did go to old Dr. Sheldon in the geology department, and put it up to him. "Gold?" he said. "At Tambay?" He dragged out a topographic relief map and a lot of blueprints and gave me a free lecture. The nearest gold strike, he said, was 60 miles away in the hills. "If gold has been found at Tambay," he fin- shed up, "someone has been salting the place. Do you understand what is meant by salting?" "Since I was 10 years old." Which made no sense at all. But ! felt better about Doc Oliver. Could I make Juddy see it that way? No; she was through, * * * A COUPLE of afternoons later, -^- while I was trying to make a liar out of my bank statement and having no luck at all, a million dollars worth of rolling stock eased into camp and played sweet music on its horn. A guy in Fifth Avenue sports clothes gave me a jmile I'd like to have framed for a souvenir and said, "I've heard about you, Mom." "Lots of folks have, that I don't even know who or what they are." "Who or what I am? You might call me an entrepreneur, if you know what that means." "If you're planning to entrepre* Tambay for gold, you're late," .1 told him. "The gold's only a sideline with ie," he said. "Next week's aviation meet over at Keraw is what brought me down." "In the air business?" I asked him. "Well, I've got a few patents," he said, "Also I've backed a Broadway show or two, taken a crack at financing radio, and hit 'em up a couple of times on Wall Street." "Say, who are you?" I said. "Eclsel Ford? Or where did you get all the money in the world?" "Only part of it," he said. "I got it by getting born into the right family." "Wouldn't want to sink—invest some capital in a sound, reliable tourist line, would you?" "Not my season for tourists. I'm buying up athletes this winter. Got an option on a pro football franchise. All I need is a team, to make a killing. Do you know a bird at Welliver named Todd?" "Angel? Do I know my own right leg! Angel's liable to be around this evening." "Is he? Then why don't I settle in, right here?" I sang my little song. "You couldn't find a better place for the money in these United States. Electric light and heat. Shower bath. All for two dollars." "Fair enough. Todd isn't living here, is he? I understood he was still at Welliver." "So he is. But he comes around. He's sort of interested in my part- and negotiations are under way to secure her entire exportable surplus i of hides, casein, zinc, tin, linseed and j quebracho extract. I Brazil has agreed to send northward the entire surplus of 11 important products, including 100,000 tons of bauxite, considerable amounts of zirconium, mica, nickel, industrial diamonds, castor oil and chromite. Landlocked Bolivia's famous tin mines are heavily guarded and special precautions have been taken to insure delivery of their precious yield to Chilean seaports where it is tran- phipped ncrthwarcl. Tungsten follows; the same route. Chile is furnishing the United States with copper and nitrates in addition to lesser metals and minerals. Mexico is supplying mercury, needed in tlie manufacture of fulminates, lead and tungsten.

II: Arms, Planes and Men In the military sphere, Bragil has the largest standing army—92,000 men -Mexico is next with 63,000; then omes' Argentina with 50,000. Peru's small active force of 25,000 is backed by the largest reserve of at least partially-trained warriors in Latin America, 460,000, Tiny, highly democratic Costa Rica has the smallest army, being limited by the 1923 convention among Cen- iial America states to 500 officers md men; but with the reserve and national guard, it is estimated protective forces total 150,000. In practically all 20 nations, military service is compulsory. Argentina lias compulsory service from 20 to 45 years of age, men belong to the first line army for 10 years, the national guard for 10 years and the territorial guard for the final five. Brazil lias a selective service system for men from 18 to 45. In addition to compulsory service from 19 to 50, Bolivia has pre-military instruction for boys from 12 to 19 and for girls from 1.5 to 20. In most of the 20, foreign military Pt.

Latin America is extremely air- minded as the prevalence of flying clubs indicates. One nation at least, Panama, nas abandoned completely having a navy and depends entirely upon rmy and air force. No estimates of any degree of accuracy are available as to the number of fighter, training and bomber planes which the 20 nations may have (except for Peru which has 140 planes), but the size of air force actives (as of Nov., 1941) gives some •clue; Brazil leads with 3,C75 men; Chile has 2,800; Argentina, 2,000; Peru, 2^00; Colombia, 1,100. All the others have less than 500 each. Naval activity is restricted.
