Peanuts may either be planted after the soil has been thoroughly warmed up in the spring. Usually shelled peanuts give best results when planted in late April and early May. Unshelled peanuts may be planted several days earlier; however yealds are usually much higher where hand- shelled peanuts arc used than where unshelled peanuts are used. The best depths for planting, as revealed by research done by the University of Aarkansas College of Agriculture, are about 1% to 2 inches in light sandy soils and 1 to 1% inches deep in heavy soils. The best spacing is about 4 inches apart in rows 24 inches wide, which will require about 50 to 60 pounds of shelled peanuts per acre.

TALBOT'S We Outfit the Family Edson in Washington Shakeup Gives Air Force New Prestige WASHINGTON - The War Depart-® ment reorganization that became effective this week has been hailed generally as a great step forward in stream lining the Army for actual war and eliminating a lot of the red tape that traditionally has characterized Army procedure in times of peace. Reduction of the general staff from 500 officers to 98 is typical of the way in which authority has been centralized. This does not mean that the other 402 officers will be packed out of Washington and sent to duty with troops. Far from it. There will still be the thousands of officers and tens of thousands of civilians on duty at the headquarters of what today is the country's biggest business, with the country's biggest office force. But the W. D. organization at the top has been simplified and Chief of Staff Gen. George C. Marshall has been reliveed o a tremendous load of administrative detail, the new Service of transferred to Supply under Maj. Gen. Brehon B. Smervell. By that step, General Marshall will be permitted to concentrate his energies and abilities on strategy and war plans. From the general public's point of view, most interest in the reorganization centers on the position of the Air Corps, for the subjects of unified Army-Navy air command and creation of a separate secretary for air with cabinet rank equal to the secretaries of War and Navy have been debated in congress and across the country with more fervor than any other phase of the defense program. Much of this debate has been based on misinformation, fuzzy thinking or pure hunch. Back of it all, however, has been a suspicion that the old-line Army officers belittled or were envious of Lhe grwoing importance of air power in modern war and were therefore conspiring to keep military aviation from coming into its own. Air Corps Gets Place n the War Secretary of War Stimson states that one of the primary purposes of this .atest War Department reorganization las been to give the Air Corps its prpoer place in this air war. Steps toward this objective have been gradual and several in number, largely the result of the expansion of the STAMP NEWS HPHE "discovery" of the Amazon •*• river by Francisco de Orellana, Spanish explorer, is commemorated in a series of eight stamps recently released by Ecuador. «• Actual discovery of the Amazon where it enters the Atlantic was made by Vicente Yanez Pinzon, a companion of Columbus who sighted the river's mouth in 1500. A small expedition of 50 men led by Orellana left Guayaquil in May, 1541, to join a larger force headed by Gonzalo Pizarro which left from Quito. Together they started from the eastern slopes of the Andes down thousands of miles to the ocean. Food became scarce and the expedition separated. Orellana and 57 picked men went dpwn river in search of provisions and reached the Atlantic in September, 1542, ahead of the other group. Remnants of Orellana's force, decimated by disease and Indian attacks, set sail for Spain the next month and announced their discoveries to the Crown the following year. * * * War, playing hob with the postage of Ethiopia, will result in a postage series soon to be released honoring the recrowrijng of Emperor Haile Selassie. Expected designs are of Addis Ababa scenes and interiors and exteriors of the palace. * * * New issues: Perak brought an 8-cent red into use prior to the Japanese invasion of the Malay States. . . . Ecuador has issued another national defense fund raising stamp which supplements that issued nearly a year, ago. The new patriotic stamp, which is obligatory in addition to normal postage, is a 20-centavos blue picturing a warrior, arm?d with sword and shield, protecting Ecuadorian women. air program, partly the result of a desire to quiet some of the public and congressional clamor to let the aviators run the war. Under old pre-war organization, the Air Corps was just another branch of the Army,'rating equally with infantry, cavalry, field artillery and the rest. Last June, the organization of "Army Air Forces" was announced. Maj. Gen. Henry H. Arnold, who had been deputy chief of staff for air since October, 1940, became chief of the Army air forces as well, and as such, reported directly to the secretary of war. The Army air forces were given their own procurement, maintenance and similar organizations' and functions, and their own general staff, with an A-l, A-2, A-3, and A-4 corresponding to the G-l for personnel, G-2 for intelligence, G-3 for operations and G-4 for supply, sections of the general staff for the ground forces. The Army air force thus became autonomous within the War Department organization, an Army with the Army. This latest reorganization carries this autonomy still further, but whether it is carried far enough to. suit the civilians clamoring for a separate air force—incorporating the Navy air arm and independent of both Army and Navy—is still a question for the debating societies to wrangle about. EST Divlsia In Paries Trcs Under the new reorganization, the Army, like Caesar's Gaul, is divided into three parts—air, ground and supply. Air ranks equal with all the rest of the ground forces put together, but the head of the air forces reports now to the chief of staff instead o to the secretary y war. Some of the airmen might be inclined to wonder what would happen to them if the chief of staff were a ground officer who did not appreciate the power of the air force. 'Similarly, on the new general staff of 98 officers, half are to be from the air orce, hal from the ground. The question here is whether an air or a ground oficer is at hte head of each of the general staff sections on personnel, intelligence, operations and supply. In the war plans division of the general staff, about a third of the 60 officers detailed will be from the air force. The same question arises here as on the general staff proper. It is the general staff and the war plans division which advise the chief of staff who, in final analysis, is the commander of the Army who makes the decisions as to how the war is fought. It is the makeup of this general staff as a whole which will-determine how effectively the air force is used. These points are made here not in any effort to deprecate the reorganization plan nor to indicate that there is any grat feud between air and ground commands. The War Department as at present constituted is unquestionably air conscious, from Secretary Stimson, Assistant Secretary for Air Robert A. Lovett, Generla Mar- Khall, Lieut. Gen. McNair, the ground commander, and of course Lieut. Gen. Arnold, the air forces commander. The air force is now becoming the biggest thing in the Army and the most important. But some of the super-charged, overenthusiastic airmen won't be satifsied till they're running the whole show. find you should flatten out cartons, tie them in neat bundles nnd pack them in « place where they'll keep dry nnd clenn. Newspapers should be separate from other paper. That means separate containers for different kinds of paper. But it's wise to ask local authorities for information. Tih cans are collected if bottom nnd top are removed, the cans washed and flattened nnd nil packed together in a box. The government recommends saving Wrapping paper, cardboard cartons, boxes, paper bags, newspapers nnd magazines to make new paper board to pack foods, airplane parts, tank parts, shells nnd ammunition. Rags, including cast-off clothing, burlap bags, drnpkeries, mnltrcsses, pillows and discarded carpets may be saved for possible re-use as wiping rags in factories and for roofing and flooring materials in emergency construction. Metals like discarded tools, beds, stoves, railings, tire chains, pots nnd pans, picture frames, hangers, toothpaste containers, pipe nnd hardware also are on the salvage list. But the government warning is: Do not discard anything that is still useful and that might have to be replaced.
