, Morch S, t$42 'Cornelius Warns Danger of Farm Credit Bill Would Permit FCA Governor to Dominate Credit System ^In the slress one! excitement of wnr oclivilies, farmers should nol lose sign! of other mutters, warns T A Corm-liiis, president of the Hempstead County farm Bureuu. They should remember (hat fundnmcntur changes ,'n tlie ftirni credit field arc conli-ni- Matwl in ; , bill at. R. 53.-ICI on which the House Committee on Agriculture )>ns niretitly held hum-ings. In niiiking 11 sUHcmiMit relative to the proposed house bill on fnrin credit Kdwiird A. O'Neill, President of the .jXmerican Knnii BuVenu Feduralion says: "There is much in this bill which we can heartily approve, but there are other tiling in it which, in our opinion, would be fraught with grave danger to the Federal Land , flunk System. The moat objectionable Venture of the bill, pel-Imps, is that it would permit the governor of the Farm Credit Administration completely to dominate the system. There is alreday loo much of a tendency of centralization of authority in Washington in many of our affairs, and it is a tendency that should be checked before it is too late. When the Federal Land Banks were created, the ob- peclive was a farmer-owned, fanner- controlled, cooperative system of farm Credit. Under the proposed changes, the system would become almost an out-and-out government agency, and we are against that. What agriculture needs is a financial institution that will do for farmers the equivalent of what the Federal Reserve ijipyslvm does for business and banking. Another feature of the proposed Bill StAfc, MOM, ARKANSAS PAGE SEVtN Wanted: Map, Showing Location of Honeymoon Lane By NKA Service NEW YORK — Honeymoon trouble is hounding lovely Brenda Marshall, the Hollywood actress. When she told about it yesterdaj. she was misty-eyed. Mere's what hap- | pt.'nod: Three days after she was married last July to Bill Holden, the nctor .she received a telephone call from Warner Brothers Studio and had to dash up to Canada immediately for the filming of "Captains of the Clouds." Three and a half weoks later she arrived back in Hollywood just as Bill left for location in Nev i du. Eight days later Bill returned, had un appendlcUs attack the first day and was operated on. The day he was released, Brenda had an attack and was operated on immediately nl the same hospital. OOps! Still More Bml l.uck When both patient* recovered Bill was called off to do a picture, which was immediately followed by work in a second picture. Then Brenda had a relapse just as they were preparing to go on u trip into the desert. Recovering, finally, her studio sent her to Washington for the President's Birthday Bull—then to New York lor the opening of her picture. Just when Bill arrived and they were making plans for their long- which ' we strong! yobject to is the plan for mandatory refinancing of farm debts. We are convinced that it would constitute an open invitation to initiate refinancing proceedings and to bring political pressure to obtain approval of such refinancing in cases where such refinancing is not merited. Farm prices and farm income have greatly improved in recent years, and are at parity right now. \V>? insist that the Farm Credit System be maintained as a sound business institution, and not a benevolent government agency."

Defense Reports of Progress Released by County Agent The following reports were released by Oliver Adams, Hempstead county agent, showing ways and means that county farmers are aiding national defense by experimenting and improving: S. E. Form by herd of beef cattle in the Hickory Creek bottom North of McCaski!) are receiving u large portion of their winter feed from a trench silo that was filled early last fall with Atlas Sargo. Mv. Formby reports he can gel more feeding out of crops in silage tha nany other way. This is the second filling foi' the Formby trench which is about 100 feet long, 8 feet deep and 10 to 12 feet I wide. Peanut yields have been measured at the Fruit and Truck Branch Experiment Station near Hope since 193-1 with the following results for White- Spanish Variety: 34 bushels in 1941, 13 bushels in!940, 55 bushels in 1939, 90 bushels in 1937, G5 bushels in 1936, 77 bushels in 1935 and 28 bushels in 1934. The Improved White Spanish gave a yield of 36 in 1941, 16 bushels in 1940 and Gl bushels in 1939. Each year the peanuts were planted during the period May 1st to 10th, 5 to 8 inches apart in the row. and with no fertilizer but following cotton which had been fertilized witn -tun pu l>er acre. To assist Hempstead county farmers in reaching their Food-for-Victory goals plans are being perfected with neighborhood Agricultural Planning Committee members for conducting a meeting in each neighborhood in the county. Among the problems for consideration are: Production and storage of ample livestock feed to be certain of meeting Hempstead county livestock products war goals at a profit to the farmer, boll weevil control measures that should be completed not later than early April, treating of cotton seed and planting only adapted varieties, and an ample program fo rmarketing the eggs of each neighborhood. Many farmers have their farm machinery repaired and extra parts that are liable to be needed in their storage house. Commercial fertilizer for cotton and other crops is in the barn on several farms. Some few are having to wait for needed supplies. All farmers who cannot get what is needed should nol blame dealers and the government us the true blames in Tokio, Rome and Berlin. The idea is if you have to have some commercial material in running the farm it is certain only when on hard at Die farm. At 10 o'clock Thursday, March 5, beet cattlemen will hold a discussion and demonstration on breed type led by M. W. Muldrow, Extension animal husbandman at the Four-States Livestock Show grounds at Texarkana. In the afternoon, Southwest Arkansas Hereford Breeders will sell at auction 22 purebred whiteface bulls. A. R. A very of Baird's Chapel thrashed 155 bushels of Improved WhJte Spanish peanuts last week which were produced on about 8 acres of land. This is not the results of the total yield as several were fed on the vines during the winter. The Avery farm is very sandy and peanuts are comparatively well adapted. The Avery's always shell their peanuts for planting to get the plants up as quick as possible which lowers gopher and mole damage to seed. A little kerosene is sprayed on the seed before planting us a repellent. Perhaps Gentleman Had a Heavy Date TAMPA, Fla. —(/)••)— A thief with un exotic taste robbed a delivery truck here. Disdaining such commonplace articles as shoes, mops and the like, he took only one parcel. It contained eight pounds of orchids. I Return of Bike Built for Two Old Gray Mare Considered Also as Autos Bow Out By JACK DEVLIN NEA Service Staff Correspondent NEW YORK-The Gay 90's are right around the corner again—if the war- lime boom in bike sales and the growing interest in Old Dobbin provide a criterion. Bicycle stores iire practically sold out and their quotas for the proposed new victory models will probably be so small, comparatively, that a lot of people who used to drive to the corner for a package of cigarettes are going to start walking or give up smoking. Kubber Shortage Buck of It All In the horse field, people are cock- in gone eye on the family'garage mid trying to envision how it will work out as a stable. Careful queries havf supplied them, too, with the information that gasoline and oil consumption wasn't so expensive after all when compared with hay and feed the yeai 'round. Back of all this of course, is the shortage of rubber and automobiles. Out of the country's 28,875,000 motoi vehicles, excluding 4,850,000 trucks owners and dealers will scrap, 2,600,000 over-age autos before the year is out The gap will be impossible to fill The nation's 44,000 used-car dealer? have about a half million cars for sale. In addition, there are 400,000 new cars to be rationed off and no more foi the duration. This means an actual shortage of 1,700,000 automobiles, and, at a time when workers are placing a heavy demand for cars so they can reach their jobs in outlying defense plants. The beauty of the bicycle in wai time, aside from its low cost, is the fact that you can make 150 of them with the amount of metal needed for the manufacture of one auto. But the big hitch is rationing. Production last year equalled the all- time record of 2,000,000 bikes sold in 1897. Tills year the industry apparently is going to be allowed to turn out only 750,000 bicycles. They'll probably cost between $25 and $30 and be stripped of every bit of excess metal except the fenders There will be no chromium either and they will probably all be painted the same color. Already they are being used by shoppers and workers and, before the year is out, you'll probably start seeing commuters pumping furiously up to the railroad station mornings trying to catch the local version of the More ih«n one millions gallions of iest water was required by the larg- est liners in making one trip across he Atlantic. Willkie Hoaxed in Mississippi Mississippians Angered by High School Prank JACKSON, Miss.-W)-The joke played by Jackson High School students who impersonated Wendell Willkie well enough to deceive a banker-legislator started a demand in the legislature Wednesday for investigation of high school fraternities. When i?ol' ce reported the boys had admitted foking o long-distance telephone call to Representative J. T. Brown of Jackson in which "Willkie" accepted an invitation tcr address" the legislature March 3, they said the participants were 'members of a htgfi school fraternity. Fraternities are tar* bidden by Mississippi law. Representative H. T. Smith of Lafayette, saying that the youths' hoax was "contempt of the House," offered a resolution for an investigation of the high school to determine whether there was basis for "prosecution of persons alleged to have been guilty of 'organizing or attempting to organize such prohibited fraternities or .societies'." The house took no immediate action. In New York, Willkie was reported amused when he was told of the hoax. Salt-water gnats, smallest of flying insects, once chocked the carburetor's of a bombing plane and forced H to land. PEAK // YOU GET . , BLUE PLATE Mayonnaise MADE BY THE WESSON Oil «OPIE Shortage of Farm Machinery Should Have Supply of Nuts, Bolts, Washers, Pins Having a supply of assorted bolts, nuts, washers, and cotter pins will save farmers both time and money when they actually start repairing their farm machinery, says Oliver L. Adams, county agent, who added that this is also true when the machines are used in the field. When purchasing repair parts for farm machines, needed bolts, nuts, washers, or cotter pins are often overlooked, he said. During the busy season, very few working days pass that a boll Ls not broken or a nut and washer are not lost from some machine, according to Earle K. Rambo of the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. Sometimes a piece of baling wire will serve as a temporary substitute for the missing bolt or nut, but, the Extension agricultural engineer pointed out, too often the wire becomes a permanent part of the equipment. In some cases, he said, the machine has to be stopped until it can be properly repaired—and this may call for y trip to town. Rambo said that farmers can make considerable saving on gas and oil alone, to say nothing of tires and time, by purchasing 50 or 100 assorted bolts, nuts, and washers, and a similar quality of assorted cotter pins and having them available for ready use. Such an assortment can be purchased for as little us ?2. When bolts have been replaced and the nuts are on tight, it is a good practice to put u dab of paint on Ihe end of the boll extending beyond the nut. This paint will retard rusting, heir, keep the nut from working loose, and enable the operator to remove it without much resistance.
