Calhoun of Old Liberty, a member of the County Agricultural Planning Committee and Farm Bureau Board of Directors again took the lead with an improved farm practice and constructed a barrel machine for treating cotton seed to control seed born diseases. J/Ir. Calhoun made his treater by running a pipe through a steel drum, welding it to the drum and supporting it on sawhorses. Other details of his treater are: a tight door to the barrel, a crank for turning, a smooth mixing board placed to one side of the pipe that extends through the barrel, and ample height on the sawhorses so that the treated seed may be removed without danger to the operator. The cost of material for treating cotton seed is fifteen or less cents per bushel. The value of treating varies but reports last season <;ave treatment the credit for not replanting completely. Normally the value is 10 to 15 per cent increase in seed cotton produced. Mr. Calhoun says treating, cotto nseed is probably the simplest farm practice that farmers may adopt to pay the highest returns for the amount invested. Some Jinx, Hey?

TWO GREAT SERVICES Australia Banks on Its Depth Hove (Expected War With Japan for Generations By RAY PEACOCK Wide World Features Writer Australians for generations have expected war with Japan. Now that it's here the island continent is readier Ihnn ever—with a new life-line road through its lifeless interior, n new sea base, and a greatly strengthened army, nnv ynnd air force. Example of Australia's drive to prepare for war is Port Darwin. Two years ago only a drowsy pearling station, it has become ;> bristling north coast sea base, already the target of Japanese bombers. It depends upon and is the reason for the new overland highway which links Darwin to the rail span extending from Alice Springs to southern Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Straight through the continent, 650 monotonous miles, the main section of the road was built by 1,400 men in 93 days late in 1940. Later it was extended to the northern coast. Only bored wells', at 50-mile intervals, break the level, -strnight-nway monotony. AJic.e Springs, great inland arsenal where truck convoys form, is built around an oasis. Npt far north is Teatree Well, geographical heart of the continent. Vital Offensive Base Darwin's military importance leap- eu with the fall of Singapore. Only 3'X> air hours from Surabaya, Java, it became a fital offensive factor although, as a defensive outpost it could be circled by Japanese sea- borne invaders. Australian strategy has allowed for attack, even for invasion. Darwin's real strength is scattered and concealed in surrounding countryside. Like Russia, Australia has a 'defense in depth." The Aussies, like the British armored troops in Libya, could retreat anu advance over meaningless distances. Japan discovered Port Darwin's sea base potentialities before Australia. Protected by outlying islands it is closer to the Southern Philippines than San Francisco to Hawaii, so is better situated than safer Sydney. For years Japanese craft — ostensibly fishing boat.?, but government owned and navy staffed — poked around Australian, i shores. ' < Before completion of the new high- \yay, invading Japanese could have ifjickeu aside the garrison of less than 1300 men at Darwin. But for 15 months men and steel have flowed north in a steady stream by rail and truck. ! • Australian army strength, put at 170,000 in November. 1941, now pre- I yiimably is around 200.000 despite 15,000 IcilJed or imprisoned in Greece. Crete and Svria. and added losses at Sinaa- jpore. In aduition, the Australian Military Forces (men in compulsory training) number 250.000 and the Volunteer Defense Corps (World War I veterans) ..50,000. Total wquld be near 500,000 I from a Deputation (as of a year ago) of ,7,068,689. Navy Active Naval personnel is about 20,000 five times that of the last war. Nearly every unit of the navy has seen action in the war. At the outbreak there were two heavy and four light cruisers, five destroyers, two sloops, a minelayer and minesweepers. New 'launching!) have strengthened the fleet, largest in the British Empire outside England, and expandsion continues. A S15.000.000 battleship graving dock nt Sydney is to be coinpletcu by 1944. Tho Sydney main naval bnse is capable of holding the' combined fleet.s of the work! and is the best base between Pearl Harbor and Alexandria. The Royal Australian Air Force in six years has built up from a force of 30 first-line planes and 822 men to a pilot personnel of nearly 80,000 with 143,000 more training—and a greatly multiplied number of planes; strength greater than Britain boasted hi S-'eptembur, 1939. In eiirht months of Middle East warfare, Aussie pilots knockeu down 11 planes to every one of theirs decommissioned. Which would indicate that the screen of reconnaissance air bases established around the 12,000 Australian coast- line should be bad medicine for ocean raiders and invading forces, Principal rubber, oil, nnd chemical companies have .ooolfrd their patents and processes in y program to ttirn^ out 400,000 Ions of synthetic rubber annually, by the middle of 1943.

Plans were made for Home Management and clothing for-Victory" campaign being sponsored by the Agricultural Extension Service. 4-H Club members who attended the study day not only expressed a determination to plan their own farming operations in accordance with the war needs but showed a desire to 0ive their services in assisting with farm production problems that are of such major importance as to re- quii-f the cooperative efforts of all loyal American farm people. Since it is essential that these progressive youths take the lead in many farm activities, which were directed by adults in peace time, they are takin" every possible step to diversify their •1-H club work in order to exceed the production peals planned in the "Food- for-Victory" Campaign.
