Despite the fact that Kesling is the spot man, leading scorer is Capt. Rudy Baric, only 5-10 but a great rebound man. If the defense should slide back to stop Kesling and Baric, Hamilton and little Roger Hicks, both good set shots, pop away from the outside to force the opposition nito normal defense. Mountaineers Stall to Draw Out Weslcyan Wesleyan, with instructions to choke up Kesling and Baric down court and let the Mountaineers shoot outside were given a different treatment. Hamilton simply held the ball a full three minutes, within the rules which state a player can hold the ball indefinitely if an opposing guard does not advance within three fee. As Scotty stood statue-still in the middle of the Field House court, his mates sat down and spectators were fearful someone would suggest a game of gin rummy. Finally, Wesleyan gave up and moved the defense out. Perhaps that's typical of the Mountaineer foolers. Dyke Raese dreamed of this kind of a club, and one thing that won't beat the young coach is impatience.

Letters have been sent out to all presidents, vice-presidents who are co-chairmen of the scrap committee in each club group. Letters hiive been mailed out to individuals who sent in cards to the War Board stating they had scrap on hand. The materials to be sold include old iron, aluminum, brass, cpo- pcr, lead, rubber, news paper, magazines and card board. Each type of material is to be bundled and kept together as (1) Flatten out nil cardboard cartons and boxes, lie them in neat bundles and keep them dry and clean (2) pile newspapers separately, fold (hem flat, and tie them in separate bundles, (3) keep rags, mclul, and rubber separately in big cartoons or bags if possible. All communities, neighborhoods, clubs and individuals are urged to do n good job of this to sell the scrap for Uncle Sam. Good Timber Stumpage Price Farmers Have Chance to Derive New Income Good slunipago prices for form timber emphasize the need to "crop" rather thnn "mine" farm forests, reports Oliver L, Aciams, county agent. Stumpage prices for timber should be good in 1942. The National Defense progra mis including and involving the farm timber acres with their respective forest products, according to Frederick J. Shullcp of the University of Arkansas College ot Agriculture. Under these conditions, over- mature trees, as well as wolC and deformed trees, hnvc a ready market. Furthermore, such cuttings improve the remaining stand. The Extension forester further pointed out that mature trees, which can be sold now at fnvorablc prices, .should tench farmers to npprccinto their growing timber stock more and look upon timer as n crop, such as corn or cotton. The growing importance of wood in oiir national economy and the great demand for limber products during the war re-emphasize most strongly the need to protect farm timberland from forest fires, Shulley said. Along with the selling of merchnnt- nble or over-mature trees, there should be u word at caution not to overcul a stimd, the forester said. This upsets a good sustained yicld- rnantigomcnt program, which is the goal ot every timber owner, and corresponds to selling too many of the foundation stock in a herd of cattle after years of development.

Loss Cotton Protection Includes Weevils, Insects Under the new cotton crop insurance program Hempstead county farmers can insure their 1942 yield aghinst loss from all unavoidable causes, including boll weevils and other insects, flood, drouth, wind, hail, plant disease, storm and such others as may be designated by the Federal Crop Ins.urance Corporation, according to E. N. Martindale, chairman of the County AAA committee. "Cotton crop insurance is a businesslike program," he declared. "It is designed to protect the cotton produc- !er from loss due to unavoidable causes. It does not offer insurance against laziness, however, and will not cover losses due to negligence, improper cultivation and so forth." In discussing protection offered by crop insurance, Mr. Martindale gave , , _. . . . . .. the following answers to other qucs- ' ba ! an j-' e - The administrative cost Lafayette County February 23, 1S42 Prepared by Eunice Triplctt Lcwisvillc, Arkansas praised crop losses. They are paid by signing a commodity note calling for payment either in cotton or the cash equivalent, or in deductions from loss payments, if any, or from the first Federal farm payment. 5. How will losses be repaid? When? Losses will be paid with certificates ot indemnity transfering to the producer ownership of enough cotton to make up the difference between his actual production, if any, and the amount for which his crop was insured. This certificate may be converted into cash by returning it to the FCIC and receiving a check in exchange, or by turning it over to the Commodity Credit Corporation for a cotton loan on the amount of cotton represented by the certificate. In case of total crop loss the indemnity will be paid as soon as the loss is established. In case of partial loss, the indemnity will be paid at the end of the season. 6. How is crop insurance financed? The Federal Crop Insurance Corporation has a capital stock of $100,000,000, but it is expected that over a period of years the program will be self- financing. That is, funds withdrawn from the capital stock to pay losses in ba dycars will be returned in good years when premiums paid in exceed Assignment of O. & G. Lease: dated 2-17-42, filed 2-21-42.

W!nitnn*S«!em. N.O losses paid out. years premiums Over a period of and losses should tions most commonly asked by farmers and business men in Hcmpstead county about the new insurance program: 1. Where can I apply for cotton crop insurance? Cotton crop insurance policies are being written at the AAA office in the courthouse at Hope. 2. How long a period does crop insurance cover. Crop insurance must bu taken out before the cotton is planted or before March 16. It offers protection until the cotton is weighed in on the gin scales, provided this is not later than January 21, 1943. 3. How much can I insure my crop for? A producer may insure his cotton crop for 50 per cent or 75 per cent, whichever he wishes, of the seven year average production of his farm, according to the protection he wishes and the size of the premium he prefers to pay. Insurance providing 100 per cent coverage would not be practical, because some producers would take advantage of the Crop Insurance Corporation and neglect their crop in order to collect an indemnity. With producer scarrying the first 25 per cent risk there is still a big incentive for producers to make a full crop. 4. How are premiums calculated and how can they be paid? Just as yields are based on the average historical or Appraised production of the producer's farm for past years, the premium is based on the farm's average historical or ap- paid by the government and will not be added to premiums which are collected from any payment due the producers. More Machines Are Confiscated Police Renew Warning to Get Rid of Slot Machines County and local police announced Wednesday that several more slot machines were seized and confiscated here Tuesday night and renewed warnings that "they will not be permitted to operate in Hcmpstead county."
