3M. HOPE STAR, HOPf, ARKANSAS 1942 Dairy odud Prices Farmers Adrised t'to Grow Own Feeds to Combat High Prices outlook is good ofr dairy prices Her year, reports Oliver L. Adams, agent, but feed prices will also her, and, as a result, there will hit be as favorable a spread between afry prices and feed prices as in 1941. >i;,To offset the increased feed costs, m^'county agent advised farmers to pktt now for large enough acreages x pasture, hay, silage, and grain crops w> supply their own feed needs for 1942. .vPasture, hay and silage should make Up the bulk of nation, the county sgent said. Sufficient acreage of these tfops should be planned now in order to be sure of a large supply for 1943 j^When cows are on good pasture. !JT Will not require any other rough- J- but when dry weather makes tures short, hay and silage should >fed. Cows should be fed all the otighage they will consume at all limes either in form of pasture or stored roughages. The avereage dairy cow will consume 2 pounds of hay daily for each 100 pounds of live weight. Thus, Paul Catfuth of the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture said, an 850- pound cow till need 17 pounds hay per day. When silage is available, the Extension dairyman said, one pound •of hay may be left out of the ration and 3 pounds of silage per 100 pounds of live weight may be substituted. The quHilty of both hay and silage will determine the amount consumed, Carruth said. The better the quality, the more nutrients and vitamins they receive, thus making it possible to feed smaller amounts of grain. One or two home-grown grains will make an evcellent grain ration, Carruth said, adding that grain rations do not have to be complicated to get good results. Use all home-grown grains available and in the proportion which they are available. Grain rations, the dairyman pointed out, must be balanced with some type of roughage. The type of hay being fed will usually determine the percentage of protein that should be in a dairy ration. Heat Causes Coolness Because it causes freer perspiration, the evaporation of which has cooling effect, hot tea is more cooling than ice cream. Third Highest In the United States, cerebral hemorrhage has a death rate of 85.7 per 100,000 of the population, and ranks third in causes of deaths. FIRE! F RE!

Main Hope, Ark. Why 100-Octane Gas Is Vital Autoists of U. S. to Help'Keep 'em Flying' By NEA Service WASHINGTON - When your car scctns to puff a little harder pulling up hills, if she burns a bit more gasoline to the mile, if there's an occasional knock in the motor that wasn't there before—you can smile a proud incl patriotic smile. For if your gasoline doesn't give the performance you're accustomed to, you'll have helped to "keep 'em flying." The best gasoline in the world—"100- x-taine aviation gasoline" — gives- Uncle Sam's pilots the added speed, -ange, bomb-load capacity and ceiling lhat provide the margin between victory and defeat in the air. To keep that gasoline flowing, powering the motors of the thousands of planes which Uncle Sam aims to build, means that America's motorists are going to have to sacrifice a certain amount of quality in their automobile ;asolines, because 100-octane gasoline draws upon some of the chemical compounds that go into ordinary notoring gasoline. Approximately four years ago, the test-tubes and the complicated apparatus of the gasoline laboratory put i novelty o nthe market. It was a ;asoline composed of a number of components that had a higher "knock- ng point" and yielded more power :han any other gasoline ever produced. [t was "100-octane." Why Air Force Needs Our Best Gasoline Today, 100-octane is a military 'must" for our growing air force. it makes possible more powerful engines that weigh less; it gives our planes faster rates of climb; greater naneuverability and enables our bombers to carry heavier loads. It is made in quantity only in the United States, and it now powers the planes of our aAllies as well as our own. The Axis powers cannot make this super- fuel. Already 100-octane aviation gasoline has played a leading role in the brilliant feats of the Army, Navy and Marine Corps birdmen in the Battle of the Pacific. Already it has been an important element in carrying the Royal Air Force to dominance in Western Europe. Its priceless advantages—can be utilized in any one of three ways; or— as in the case in actual practice—in a combination of the three: It can be used for greater power at takeoff. It can be used for maintaining speed and power at higher altitudes (enabling a flier to get "on top" of his enemy and outmaneuver him in battle). It can be used for longer range per gallon, meaning that one of our planes could travel many miles further using 100-octane than it could using 91-octane or less—as the enemy must. Actual comparisons of the fuel are difficult because it can't be used to advantage in any engine: the engine must be designed to utilize it. However, engineers have calculated that, if two ships were built identical, except for their engines, one to use 91-octane and the other to use 100- octane, the latter could: Develop approximately 26 per cent more power at takeoff. Or, maintain its maximum speed at 1500 feet higher altitude. Or, use about 100 gallons less gasoline—about 675 pounds (which weight could be put into bombs, guns or ammunition)—on a 600 mile trip. Here's What You Will Give Our Airmen One of the very important advantages which 100-octane offers is the chance to use lighter engines. For »xample, a 1750-horsepower engine, designed to use 100-octane gasoline, y/eighs about 2800 pounds with accessories, including propeller. By contrast, a 1750-horsepower engine designed for 91-octane weighs about 3500 pounds. That means 700 pounds of weight saved per engine, or 1400 pounds of weight can be utilized for more bombs, buns and ammunition or for more fuel for longer trips. Such are typical of the "victroy margins" in speed, power and maneuverability which 100-octane gives Uncle Sam and his allies over the Axis. Just what is this gasoline marvel that a small sacrifice in your motoring pleasure makes available to your sky fighter? Its full name is ''100-octane number gasoline." "Octane number," reduced to simplest terms is the anti-knock quality in a fuel. The automobile gasoline which you used in the early Twenties was around 60-octane or less. Today, if you buy premium, or socalled "ethyl" gasoline, you get 80 to 82-octane number. If you buy "regular," you get 73 to 77-octane number. The octane numbers of third grade are 68 to 71. While these automobile fuels are quite adequate for your car's motor, if used in one of our new Army or Navy planes, the knock would be so great that it would probably wreck their high-compression engines before the plane got off the ground. Only 100-octane will meet their needs. One-hundred-octane number gasoline is not a single product, hut a blend of four basic components: a "basic stock," a high-octane blending agent," a "light blending agent" and tetraethyl-lead, the so-called "ethyl" used in premium automobile gasoline. Addition of three or four cubic centimeters of tetraethyllead to each gallon of the three other components brings the octane number to 100. The final product, obtained by a vastly complicated method of refining crude oil, contains, in addition to antiknock qualities, three highly important characteristics. 1. Proper "boiling range," so it will burn smoothly at normal engine temperatures between 100 and 325 degrees. 2. Low "vapor pressure" so that it will not evaporte either at sea level or high altitudes^ causing "vapor lock" to stop engine. 3. Low water-soluabiJity. If aviation gasoline absorbed water, the water would freeze at high altitudes, flogging fuel lines. So all in all, the 100-octane avia- Try Needlework for the Nerves War Brings Nationwide Boom to Handwork Craft By MARGUERITE YOUNG NEA Service Stnff Writer NEW YORK—Trade people and defense outfits report a big increase in home needlework since the war began, and you can see it yourself. Farm wives, career women, college girls arc taking to knitting, crocheting, sewing. In New York, knitting needles click in crowded subway trains, in limousines scudding along Park Avenue, and in living-rooms full of Sunday night supper guests. Ask, and you'll get the answer: needlework "relaxes" war-tensed women. What they started for patriotism, they continue for pleasure, "Steady hands—steady nerves." Relief agencies say that American women are well along on the huge job they've been asked to do for soldiers. This includes about 1,000,000 sweaters to knit this winter. Judging by wool sales, trades, people believe that more than half of the soldiers' sweaters were finished or partly made before Christmas. Those who know the big, little industry which supplies the patterns, wool, cotton .thread and cloth and other materials for needlework predict that 19-U's final figures will show around 50,000,000 pounds of wool used —a colume worth some ?150,000,000— for knitting and crochet. America used more balls of crochet cotton than baseballs last year. Needlepoint alone accounted for around ?7,000,000 worth of materials used last year. Of course not all that reflects war- inspired needlework—but it all ties in to the stress of the times. Besides easing nerves and enabling women to have more beauty in their homes than they could otherwise buy, handwork provides more clothes. It has been bounding forward in volume for the past eight years—years of increasingly difficult times. Boom Revives Quilting Bees First recent increase noticed by sales people was in peti-point materials. Then quilting. Church groups and rural women revived that good old American institution—the quilting bee. About five years ago knitting, then crocheting, began to come back. The National Crochet Contest, which had 22,000 entrants in 1937, drew 400,000 women into its circle in 1941. This followed the annual Women's National Institute exhibit—a needlework and handcrafts display covering 25,000 feet of floor space. Hand-knitted garments, especially slacks suits, boomed in the Far West first, and soon young girls from Boston to Florida were making themselves sweaters and suits. In the Middle West, embroidery, household linens, and needlepoint remained the favorite handwork. This was furthei stimulated by modern packaging: department stores provide the picture to be made, the stamped goods, thread frame, and glass all in one handy parcel, and the market for these roared. Just as American women thus were really getting their hands in, the wai came. The immediate consequence was a certain amount of switching from other forms of needlework to knitting for defense needs, together with knitting where no handwork wa done before. It's a safe bet that the woman who knits a sweater now, and thus dis covers that she can make special love ly things for herself, is not going to be idle during leisure moments after her war quota is completed. The sun gives down energy of more han one horsepower per square yard of the earth's surface in the tropics. tion gasoline is literally tailor-made for tailor-made engines, the modern American military airplane won't perform at its best without 100-octane and 100-octane won't yiel dits ful benefits to an engine that isn't built for it. It Takes a Lot of Crude Oil to Miikc 100-Octunc To make sure that Uncle Sam' fighting pilots get the millions of gallons of 100-octane they need (a heavy four-engined bomber, flying at 25( miles per hour, burns about 350 gallons an hour!), Petroleum Coordinator Harold L. Ickes, has launched an extensive program. When he surveyed the nation's 100-octane production last summer, it was evident tha output would have to be trebled, possibly quadrupled. And already new plants that wil double an dtreble our 100-ovtane supplies are either under construction or ready to start in the near future Present plants are being enlarged. To speed output, Mr. Ickes has among other things, obtained A-l-A ratings for all applications for materials to build new 100-octane plants .'effected an agreement wi,th companies owning patents on the complicated refining process to reduce royalties by half, thus enabling other companies to afford to participate; enlisted the best brains of the oil industry by creating the Petroleum Industry Council for National Defense. The job to be done is still a tremendous one. To get the 120,000 barrels of 5,040,000 gasoline of 100-octane daily—the goal Coordinator Ickles announced last September—you have to start with more than 1,300,000 barrels of crude each day, or one- third of the entire U. S. productior nt its highest level. For 100-octane aviation gasoline is the cream tha comes from crude oil. 100,000 barrels of good East Texas crude yield only about 11,000 barrels of 100-octane. That doesn't mean the other 89,000 barrels are wasted. They come out in the form of, among other things, lower-octane gasolines for automobiles. That's why there's going to be less high-octane gasoline for your motor cars in the future. But if you find one of these days that your car motor needs to be adjusted for lower-octane gasoline, that it has less pull, more knock—remember that, thanks to your small sacrifice, an American flier somewhere is -able io carry u heavier load of j guns or bombs, is able to fly higher, ' farther and faster than his enemy. Your sacrifice helps "ki'«j> 'em Hying"—to victory. Find Model Planes in Japanese Home Los Angeles police confront a Jap with model airplanes found in his Terminal Island home.

Oil News Among the most recent recordings of oil end gas leases have been: Mid- Continent Petrolum company. There are at present about 10 major oil companies that have recorded oil and ga.s leases, causing the biggest oil play in the history of Nevada county. The Arkansas-Louisiana Gas company will build a gas line from Mc- Knmio going through Waldo. The line will cut diagonally across the county to Bicrnc, Ark. This will cause a number of workers to be hired in the construction of this 18 inch line through Nevada county.
