wwsi two Cotton Crop Insurance Is Now Under Way Available First to Wheat, and Now to Cotton Growers The cotton crop insurance program of the Department of Agriculture was launched at a national meeting held at Memphis in January and it is expected that sale of crop insurance policies to cotton farmers of Hemp- Setad county wUl be started about February 9th, E. N. Martindale, chairman of the county Triple-A com- mittee said in discussing the new program. For a number of years, he said. Wheat farmers have had the opportunity of insuring their crops and now cotton farmers can insure their production. The loan progam of the Commodity Corporation insures the price for cotton and now cotton farmers will have their production insured. Uuder the new program farmers may insure their cotton crop for 75 per cent of the normal production provided they work the crop in p "workmanlike manner." The insurance rates depend on the crop-loss history for the county as well as the individual farm. Cottonseed is also insured by an addition of 19 per cent to the amount of the rate for lint cotton. • Payment of the premium is made by the farmer signing a comodity note which can be paid any time on or before maturity in cotton or the cash equivalent on the day it is paid. If the note is unpaid at maturity the premium is deducted from any indemnity payment that may be made MOP! STAR, MOPE, ARKANSAS or from any government payment No interest is charged on the note. Indemnities will be paid by a certificate of indemnity good for cotton, which may be converted to cash or may be placed under the loan. Final date for application for cotton crop insurance is March 16, Mr. Martindale said. Additional information on cotton crop insurance may be obtained at the county Triple-A office located at Hope.

Adv. Insurance Explained Cotton Growers in Hempstead county for the first time in history can protect their cotton crop against all unavoidable hazards through the use of crop insurance, E. N. Martindale, chairman of the county AAA committee, said. Crop insurance guarantees production of cotton at 75 per cent of the normal yield for the farm. Crop insurance for individual farmers is expected to be available through the county AAA office by February 9th. '"This 'all-risk' type of production," Martindale said, "is being offered to cotton growers on their next crop for the first time and is inteded to lessen the distress caused by total or near total cotton crop failures. •'The crop insurance program," he said, "has been in operation on wheat since 1939 when approximately 166,000 contracts were written compared with more than 450,000 wheat farms already insured against crop failure in 1942." Application forms are available at the county AA office. These forms must be filed by March 16 or before the 1942 crop is planted, whichever date is earlier. "Of considerable advantage to the grower," Mr. Martindale said, "is the fact that crop insurance premiums do not have to be paid when applications are filed. In signing his application, the grower agrees to pay the premium at or before harvest time and he may have such payment deducted either from any indemnity due him. any commodity credit loan, or from payments earned or to be earned under the agriculture conservation program." Growers can insure 75 per cent of the average yield for their farm. The cost of this insurance is based on the actual risk of growing cotton on each farm and in each county.

Library Notes "That Day Alone" by Pierre van Pa- assen is born of the torment and anguished suffering of our generation, .doomed—or perhaps chosen— by destiny to live through a period of violent economic, social uncl political upheaval disruption and collapse. In the pages of this book the death rattle of a disintegrating world is answered by the first shrill cry of the new era toward which we are inevitably striding. In "That Day Alone" Pierre van Pa- assen has recaptured that human, throbbing, philosophic mood which made "Days of our Years" a permanent contribution to the literature of our time. As in "Days of Our Years" Van Paassen's prophetic wrath and the white heut of his anger against injustice, rise to inspired heights, condemning and pillorying evil where- ever he meets it.

Only those who are familiar with one know whiit a haven of help a hospital really is. Every day men and women enter broken in body and spirit and afraid and others leave eiich day with new hope in their faces, new strength in their bodies and gratitude in their hearts. Here, watched over by physicians who understand heart and mind as well as body—attended by nurses who know that sympathy and affection are often us important as efficiency, a patient soon learns that a hospital is the one place designed and organized to safeguard him in any emergency and to supply every needed service during his illness. Only a hospital can offer the fa- tbctically nnd intelligently, for sick. The Julia Chester Hospital is only ono of thousands of good hospitals in the United States, but in Hope and vicinity it is of major importance and is filling the need in an efficiei^JI manner. The institution lias a total bed capacity of 35 adult beds as well as n well equipped nursery and six bassinets for infants. A completely equipped operating room, maternity deparjj ment, X-ray and other facilities miike .|t prepared to care for silrgical, medical and obstetrical cases of any kind and the satisfaction expressed by all who have been their patients is indicative of the results they achieve In fact, being a member of the American Hospital Association, their facilities for service—both equipment and personnel—must be maintained to the highest standards required for membership in the organi/ation.
