Her Make HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS However, Lots of Jfcayt Wearing Army Clothes Now § ? , By HERMAN ALLEN "" AP Feature Service Writer WASHINGTON—Here's one benefit Although a left-handed one—that ,.>ir conferred on the American con- 'Stoier. A war production official f ttld the story this way: ' « "When war came, many men put on a uniform instead of a new suit Since men's clothing is made up a ,year or more ahead of time, this left great stocks of suits on hand for those in civilian life." The official, sketching a broad pic- lure of what the clothing suituation ' r wHl probably be after a year of war, Was optimistic on most counts. Shipping: and Suits ,• "We can say," he continued, "that ^ there is enough wool yardage on hand and enough suits on the racks to last , easily through the coming year. After that it depends on the shipping situation—whether we can get enough wool from Australia and South America to go with our domestic clip, which supplies less than half of our normal requirements. > "If worst comes to worsted—if you'll FINE WATCH AND JEWELRY REPAIR WATCH CRYSTALS 35c All Work Guaranteed KAY's OUT OUR WAY Thursday, February 5, 1942 ByJ.R \\ \ WE'RE GOIM' TO FIX TH 1 TROUGHS AM' TH' FEMCE AT SEEP SPR.IMGS, AM 1 WE NEED CATTLE SALT "THERE--KIM YOU HOLD TH 1 RIFLE AM' WHICH'D YUH SOOMER HOLD IM VORE LAP-THIS SAMD, "n-v WIRE, ER.

"Right now we have so much wool on hand that when the Army asks bids for a million overcoats it gets bids for six million. The bite that the Army will take out of the wool supply won't be felt this year, however. "Where the war undoubtedly will be felt—and fairly soon—will be in a reduction in the number of styles.

Classes will be held regularly at Hayncs Chapel, Mount Hebron and Yergcr high school to help fanners produce food and feed for themselves and help supply the nation with supplies to win the war and write the peace. Yergcr high school, center for ne- groes is one in the Southern Region that has been selected to demonstrate to the South that negro farm families can feed themselves. The farmers who have been given an opportunity in the Hayncs Chapel and Mount Hebron communities have had to accepted very little relief food help from the Relief Dcpurtmct. Many of these will buy homes of small acreage in the near future. Several have already set the home owning pace. The Vocational Department at Ycrger High School will be glad to list any land for sale that will be a good location for homes for negro farmers. Diplomatic Note: How to Swing S. A.

The industrial designer and his wife formed their opinion after a three- month business nnd vacation lour. Eighty per cent of the music they heard in South America, the Loewys say, was of northern origin, "Daddy" was a huge favorite, because it was an easy word to sny "You can sit at a table and slnrt discussing the States and the talk may got pretty acid," says Locwy. "Then the hand hits up 'Daddy' and the ar- Ruinent is all over. They smile and clap their hands with the music." Mem Women Over 40 Don't Be Weak, Old Ftel Peppy, N«w, Years Younger Tnko ORtrnx.

Tell your druggist to sell you a bottle of Creomulsion with the understanding you must? like the way it quickly allays the cough or you are to have your money back. CREOMULSION For Coughs, Chest Colds, Bronchitis MEALS TASTE BETTER This is because manufacturing equipment is needed for uniforms. Less Fancy Colors "Another thing, there are some dyes that we can't get any more. Overalls and work clothes probably will be made in the natural color instead of blue, for instance. "We have a surplus of cotton, of course, but we have a smaller supply of yard goods in cotton than in wool because some cotton looms have been turning out stuff for sandbags However, there's plenty to last the year and then some, particularly if women will cut down a little on house dresses. Sometimes they buy a hall lozen at a time." Silk imports are gone, but production officials figure there will still be plenty of rayon and nylon. The present stock of girdles and other clothing items containing rubber will las the year, but after that it probablj will be just too bad. Defense also gets first call on metals and many of the things that go into plastics, so there may be a shortage on buttons and trimmings. The war did a left-handed—or left- footed—thing to shoes, too. The Agricultural Department is calling for an increase in the kill of cattle from 25,000,000 to about 28,000,000 — and there's that much more leather. "As far as we can tell now," a leather man assured me, "there will be plenty of good quality shoes for everybody through the next year, and probably for the next two or three years, if the war lasts that long. Heels and Toes "Shoe production increased 25 per cent to 500,000,000 pairs last year. The Army took 20,000.00 pairs, really only a drop in the bucket. The increase in slaughter of steers will take care of a further increase in shoe manufacture if necessary. "Rubber heels may have to be discontinued but the rubber industry has found it can make heels satisfactorily out of reclaimed rubber, and there seems to be plenty of reclaimed rubber for the present. If it runs out, we'll have to fall back on leather heels." In the unlikely event that a leather shortage should develop, the Army I will naturally get first call, and after j that the supply will go to work shoes. Meanwhile, lady, there's; no need tc worry about those inexpensive fab- i ric shoes. Plenty of material—and ; they can't make army shoes on those 1 machines anyway. DANCE TEXARKANA ARMORY Sat.
