Hempstead Farmers Are Taking Part in National Food Drive Oliver Adams, Hempstead county agent, released the following report of progress made by county farmers in various phases of farm production showin gthe active part they are taking in the national food for victory campaign: Milk production was increased more than 10 gallons daily by three days grazing on winter oats in early February by the L. C. Sommcrvillc herd of cows near Hope. Rain making the soil too wet for grazing caused the cows to be removed after the short grazing period. Mr. Sommervillc says that managed grazing improves the yield of oats at harvest.

It was necessary to completely replant all cotton By BETTY MncDONALD NEA Service Staff Correspondent HONOLULU — A blonde on hand n Hawaii is worth 20 of her species n any sizeable mainland community. That is the verdict of sailors, soldiers and hundreds of defense workers who, since the war have boosted Hawaii's population to twice normal and increased the single-girl ratio to 20-1. About 500 eligible girls are on the calling list of the USD in Honolulu, but their number is dwindling as the run on marriage licenses continues. The Honolulu bureau of vital statistics records an increase of 117 per cent in marriage applications during the month of December, as compared with last year's figures. Girl Rationing Brings Out Rag Doll A "terrible example" of the girl rationing in Honolulu was evidenced at a recent USO dance when a forlorn sailor appeared with a large rag doll, his partner for the afternoon. He was lagged four times by the slag line. And there's a new type of social Jfe in blackcd-out Hawaii. Evening dresses arc hanging forlornly in shop windows, marked down to cost. There'll be no "dancing under the stars" in Hawaii as long as lighls are turned out at G p. m. Instead, the gals are turning out for afternoon dances in slacks and sport clothes. Several prosperous 'day clubs" have mush-roomed in town, where floor shows run from about 1 a. m. until blackout time in the evening. Hostesses who want to entertain must plan on having their guests stay overnight, since no one except those on official business is allowed to go out after dark. Private stocks of liquor arc now dwindling and chances of a lightening of the prohibition ban under military law are nil. Honolulu Plays "Spin-the- Flashlight" Blackout games are in vogue. Best is the adaptation of the popular spin- the-bottle. Since there are no bottles New Lessons in Film Flimflamery HOLLYWOOD — The practical jok-® ers are busy again, and most of the perennial suckers are pleading, "Rib- bers, stay away from my door!" The outbreak of monkey business is generally taken as a good sign; means a relaxing of tension and accomplishment of better work. It's likely to mean better work from the actor who totered on the sel the other morning still in a fog after a rough night. Fortunately he wouldn't be needed until early afternoon, so he was allowed to collapse in his portable dressing room. The dressing room, though, was moved out on the back lot, where it was pushed door first to the edge of a pool. The occupant didn't stir until a couple of hours later, when an assistant director summoned him. The conscience-stricken actor leaped up ; opened the door and lurched into five feet of cold water. Cuss Money On the set of "Wildcat" stands p five-gallon keg with a slot in the top and a Red Cross painted on the side. It gets a lot of attention because everybody who swears or even utters a slightly off-color word has to put in a quarter—or even a dollar, depending on the demands of the rest of the company and the seriousness of the offense. After a couple of days of Ihis, casual talk around the place began to take on the purity of a clergymens' conference, so the Red Cross workers began playing annoying tricks to prod each other into profane outbursts, but those held up production and had to be stopped. Now the company concentrates on visitors. Every newcomer is maneuvered into saying something requiring a forfeit even if it's only the obvious answer to a question of where Hitler wil go when he dies. A gutter raconteur strayed onto the set the other day and ran up a bill of 53.75 by telling him on the view was Carol Bruce (no relation), the leading lady just arrived from Broadway. "Quite stimu- latin'," agreed the actor. "In fact, m'dear, this is the only spot in America from which one can see both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans." It would have been harmless if Miss Bruce hadn't been too jittery about her movie debut to give any thought to the geographical whopper. Instead, she repeated it that night in letters to friends in New York, some of whom wired her to return at once because Hollywood obviously was driving her crazy. not treated. Mr. Jones is treating all of his seed for 1942 planling as it nakcs early planting safer and early ilanling helps get ahead of the boll weevil. S. D. Cook on old 67 road East of Hope marketed 2500 pounds of Kobe espedeza seed from his farm lasl season. The Arkansas Slate Plant Board seed permit tag placed on each sack before marketing showed the seed to have a purity of 98.5 per cent, 93 per cent germination and l',2 per cent inert matter such as trash left from harvesting. Mr. Cook is complemented for pioneering the production of commercial lespcdeza seed in Hempstead county. E. G. Wright of Rocky Mound has bur clover growing in cotton and corn middles on his farm from seed produced o nthe home farm. The seed plot is making progress but has been temporarily threatened by Mrs. Wright for the grazing of her fine flock of Barred Plymouth Rock poultry. The green plants in the cotton middles on the T.

Bruce is th< most brittle Britisher in Hollywood so he was amazed and infuriated when Morin lectured him about his alleged ly bad English accent. Morin sug gested that he associate more wit' his countrymen and study their specc! so that he could cope with his charac ter roles more successfully. Rathbone finally had to break up the hoax.

She was indignant. So was Colonel Skeffington, whom they met on the bank steps next day. "Are they going to do anything about the Singer boy, Colonel?" "Not now, but somebody will aggravate that boy until he does something desperate. 'Twon't be his fault, but they'll blame him, and he'll be in serious trouble." "Don't you think it would be a good idea to get some sort of employment for him—out of the way somewhere?" "It would, ma'am. A mighty sensible one. I don't suppose you could take him on your place, could you?" "I've got more help of that kind than I can use, but if you can't find anything else, let me know. I'm sure he doesn't belong in the asylum, as people are saying." Colonel Skeflington flared above his shining red beard. "There you are now! Did you ever notice, Marie, how in this town everybody's always ready to send somebody to the asylum? It's a fact. I think it's a bad thing to have a lunatic asylum in this town." He chuckled and clawed his beard. "What's more, if you'd turn all the lunatics out and put the rest of us in there, I doubt if you could tell any difference." * * * npOM CARR moved into the overseer's cottage the following week. Parris went down to watch us. Years ago." He added the last two words a bit sadly. "I'll see you later, Sonny; you must come down often and play for Lucy." Parris grinned. Decidedly Mr. Carr was a very different sort of person from Sven Gyllinson. The I thought of Sven made him "go goose flesh" all over. * * * T was nearly dark when Tom Carr's horse and cart came in sight again, creaking and creeping along the sandy road. In it was the fattest woman Parris had eyer seen. Lucy Carr wore a dress trimmed with many colors. Innumerable strings of beads lay about her neck, and many cheap rings shone on her tiny hands—deformed- looking, helpless little hands—so tiny that they seemed like'doll hands attached to her enormous arms. The cart rolled into the back yard. Tom Carr hopped out gaily detached a little ladder, and sel it close to the wheel. "Now, then sweetheart, here we are. Give me your hands. Upsadaisy!" Lucy wheezed noisily. She said "Ha!" once or twice, and then "Ho! Ho! Ho!" "Lucy, my love, this is Mrs. von Eln's grandson. Name's Sonny." She leaned so heavily on Tom Carr that he almost carried her. At the door she turned her ponderous weight slowly. She gasped out some words. "Glad, Sonny, glad." Tom Carr had proved to be a valuable man. Madame was delighted. Parris went to see the Carrs two or three times a week. Lucy always made him play for her. Sometimes she struggled to the piano and played for him. The sounds were as mad as Lucy Carr herself. Mr. Carr talked once or twice of Lucy to Madame von Eln. "She was a pretty girl, Mrs. von Eln, the men unload stuff. Mr. Carr the household was the most extraordinary-looking apparition Parris had ever seen. Mr. Carr was so lively and said so many funny things that Parris laughed. He realized he hadn't laughed much in a long time. "Oh, you've got a piano!" Parris exclaimed. "Do you play?" "No, my wife plays. It was her piano when she was a girl.' I brought it out from the East with and a happy girl. A proud girl, too. When we ran out of money it seemed she just couldn't stand the snubs she got here in Kings Row. She just went out of her head. Then she was happy. I made up my mind she should stay happy. Lucy likes your boy, Mrs, von Eln. I've never seen her take to anyone so before." * * # A STRANGE friendship sprang •"• up between Lucy Carr anc Parris. It had begun a lew days after the Carrs arrived. Old Tom saw Parris and hailed him. "Are you busy right now?" "No, sir." "Well, Lucy's been asking abou you. Wants to see you." "Me?" "Yep. Took a fancy to you right off. Tell you what you do. Go down and see her. Let her talk to you for a little while. She gets pretty lonesome." The mind of Lucy Carr was like something flying in dizzy circles. It darted in and out of the darkness that encompassed her, that pressed always closer as though waiting to engulf her. Parris felt sometimes that if he could only seize her flickering attention and fasten it down, she would suddenly become herself. "I used to take Lucy to the circus," Tom Carr told Madame one day in late spring. "If you don't mind, I'll take tomorrow off, ma'm. I thought maybe she'd enjoy it again." When Parris and his grandmother returned that afternoon, they saw Tom's cart before the cottage. He asked to have Uncle Henry fetch the doctor. "Excitement," said Dr. Gordon, giving Lucy a sleeping powder. Later Parris went down to the little house and tiptoed into the front room. Lucy Carr lay on the 3ed and Tom was rocking her gently, crooning in his deep bass •oice. Lucy saw him. "Look, honey, t's Sonny. Glad, Sonny." Parris sat down on the edge of chair and waited. She closed icr eyes and slept for a ( while. ier breathing was louder tftan he lad ever heard it, though she always struggled to get air. It sounded like the turn of a rusty wheel. Lucy opened her eyes after a while. They seemed to roll loosely in her head. "Sonny, play," she gasped. Parris sat down and began to play. The weird sounds jingled and crackled under his fingers. He played on and on. He heard her breath come more and more slowly, but he thought the awful Clubs Piney Grove The Piney Grove 4-H Club Monday February 9 with thirty five members present, and eight new members. Miss Mary Claude Fletcher gave an interesting talk and demonstration on foods we should eat to be strong for America. She announced a meeting for our mothers to rganize a Hme Demonstration Club Sriday Seb. 27, at the school house. They gave those who had not yet joined the Food-f6r-Victry Campaign a card to be filled out. 4-H Club members want to be 100 per cent strong on Food-for-Victory campaign. The meeting adjourned at ten o'clock. Five million autos in the U. S. are 10 years old or older, but that isn't n won't be unning not so long from now. cranking sound was more frequent. The afternoon light faded, and the still spring twilight came on gradually. Still Parris played on and on. He thought Lucy must be falling asleep. He could scarcely hear her. The insane witches' music that came from the piano was beginning to make his head ache. The creak of the rockers on the floor slowed and stopped. Tom Carr laid a hand on his shoulder. "That will do now. Thank you, Sonny." "Is she asleep, Mr. Carr?" Tom Carr shook his head. "She's dead. Will you tell your grandmother, please? And—thank you again, Sonny." (To Be Continued) the left after crossing Terre Rouge creek about five miles west of Hope on Highway 67 is Early Southern Giant Bur Clover. The seed was produced on the farm last spring and was seeded in early August. The 10 acre seed plot can be seen at a distance across the bottom. This demonstration should receive the close observation of all farmers and businessmen. Mr. McDavitt has rio Nitrate of Soda rationing worry for the crop to follow on this field. H .W. West of the Hopewell neighborhood believes using new cotton seed to be an important factor in cotton production. Last year he planted the entire cotton acreage on the farm to Breeder seed of the Rowden 41 A variety. This year he has secured 400 pounds of the same type sed from the breeder as a source of maintaining foundation seed and every year have quality first year seed for sale to other farmers. This practice practically doubles the income from cotton seed produced on the farm. Mr. West plans to be in attendance at the Piney Grove Rowden 41 A Cotton Association meeting at Piney Grove school house at 8 o'clock Thursday night February 19th. The Cotton Market review reports that the demand for the grades White Middling and up continued strong but offerings on recest price recessions were withdrawn. These qualities of ^ J™ 80 "./-: ,.°_ cotton are not plentiful in existing supplies. The 10-market average for middling 15/16 on February 13 of 19.27 cents compared with 10 cents on the corresponding day a year ago. 0. A. McKnight of the Bright Star negihborhood on Columbus road, reports his experience with Improved White Spanish Peanuts show that one may expect 20 bushels yield per acre easy if one can get anything above a half stand. He said that about 25 years ago he run a thrasher and thrashed 40 bushels per acre from peanuts on the John Barlow and Agee farms on the Washington road and 42 bushels per acre on the Lauderback place. Mr. McKnight says from his experience good peanut hay left from thrashing is hard to beat for livestock feeding. The County Extension service received a supply of two new Food-for- Victoryp publications this week, Soybeans for Oil and Peanuts for Oil, Food for Feed. These publications are written and dapaled to farms in this section. Interested farmers may secure copies by calling at the Exten- sio noffice on the first floor of the courthouse or by written request. F. B. Miller, chairman Hempstead County Poultry Committee and residing in the Liberty Hill Neighborhood south of Hope, reports that best information shows that there is little justification for pi-ices of eggs to be below 23s Saturday on the basis of Chicago prices, and this is for country run eggs, that is, without grading. He also says that the price is more for graded eggs and would be from one to three cents per dozen higher than for country run. All poultry men regardless of the number of hens in their flocks are requested to write F. B. Miller, Route I 1 , Hope, if interested in an active poultry association. The J. H.
