'State Farmers -Need Workers 540 General Farm Workers Wanted !? Now in Arkansas LITTLE ROCK—"Original surveys and researches on 1942 agricultural "I lived my youth at a time and in an environment when waste and laziness were prime sins. "We conserved water because if we didn't the well and cistern went dry and we were without any water. We crowded around a single lamp because kerosene was expensive and one room was as much as we could afford to heat. We wore patches it\ our clothes because we had no other clothes. "We salvaged paper, iron, copper, rags, and zinc not only in our own household, but in all tho neighborhood, thereby adding a few pennies to our spending money. "The thriftless ways of our later years are an acquired characteristic, so we find it easy to revert to tho old routine, even in a new environment. "A newspaper reader writes to his editor that water and power could be conserved in vast quantities if people would drink from a jar of cool water in the icebox instead of letting the faucet run for several ininutcs, and if they would use a moderate amount of water when bathing, and just a little water when gargling lor brushing their teeth. "All that stuff's easy for me. "I confess that I never felt so free from the prospect of want that I could toss away a good paper clip or rubber band. I haven't forgotten how to roll cigarettes, trim my fingernails, or build bookcases out of packing boxes. "Hence I'm able and ready to do my bit—with pleasure." By WILLIS THORNTON One the Civil" '•' • Liberty Front Since the days when agents of George III kept ropes handy for the necks of too critical colonists, Americans indignantly, and usually with just cause, snap back, "It's a free country, isn't it?" when a freedom is threatened. You bet it's a free country. We are going to keep it that way, too, even if we must siu-render some of our blood-bathed liberties for the duration. The price of liberty still is marked "eternal vigilance." And Thomas Jefferson's observation—"the tree ot liberty must be refreshed from time to lime with the blood of patriots and tyrants"—rings as true today as when he said it, When the exercise of certain freedoms by certain groups menaces the nation, however, it is time to take a look. Hempslead Gets First Test in Midway Area Barnsdall Brings in 10th Lafayette County Producer By Special Correspondent STAMPS—Barnsdall's 10th well, the Bond No. 4 in section 11-15-24, was brought in Uite Friday afternoon; however no gauge is available. The oil is flowing into tanks, nnd operators report this well, located on the extreme southeast edge of the field, will be a good producer. A new location is being rigged up by Gene Goff and others at the No. 1 McClain center SE of section 14-1J5- 24. This is an extension on the southeast section of the field. AID ROUTE FOR ALLIES OR ATTACK AREA FOR AXIS? ° Week's Review STAMPS—Oil exploration has spread into Hempstead county as a result of the new Midway field, and the county's first lime lest was spudded in and surface casing set this week at the Hygradc Oil Company's Ford No. 1 C NW NW section 32-14-23 about two and one half miles north of the Midway area. E. G. Bradham, El Dorado drilling contractor, will drill the test for the Sylvester brothers of New York city. The test will be watched with much interest as it is the first to be drilled I north of the Graben fault since the I Barnsdall discovery in the Midway field. The Ford's successful completion will spur leasing and royalty activity in Hempstead county. Meanwhile in the Midway field a 10th producer is expected to be finished over the week-end as Barnsdall Oil company was perforating casing at its Bond No. 4 in section 11-1524 Friday. The test may require some 'swabbing operations - before a satisfactory flow is obtained, but operators believe the well will be a good one. Porosity was topped at 6345 feet with total depth 6436 feet. The same company continued production efforts at the Bond No. 2 in section 11-15-24 after that test developed a stubborn refusal to flow. 500 barrels of acid was used as a treatment towards loosening the hard tight lime which seems to be the trouble. Barnsdall began on the three new locations in the field this week with the Roberts No. 1 NW SW of section 11-15-24 leading with a depth of below 2,000 feet. The Roberts No. 2 SW NE of section 11-15-24 and the Crock No. 1 SW NE of section 10-1524 are both WOC after setting surface casing to 615 feet. Three miles east of Stamps in the Buckner field, Bradham drilled ahead at 4200 feet at the Sue Keys No. 1 sec- i tion 7-1G-22, and six miles south of problems have been completed and it is now time for us to take stock of the ..situation and perfect plans for evety citizen in Arkansas to do his part in cooperating to meet tho tremendous responsibility facing us," saifl Ros r .o= N. Rushing, Farm Placement Supervisor for Arkansas of the United States Employment Service, in a statement fust released. "Latest figures show reports of 110 farm families and 540 general farm workers still needed in 10 of Arkansas' 75 counties. This is not a very great increase over the normal requirements at this time of year, and if Mgricultural employers needing these additional farm workers will contact and cooperate with his nearest local office of the United States Employment Service, these openings should be pretty well taken care of through procedures. The real problem facing us is the harvesting of crops," continued Mr. Rustling's statement. "Increases in requirements for war production in Arkansas range from 3 or 4 per cent in iall grains to almost 100 pe cent in ;ans, spinach, tomatoes and other food crops that are usually processed by canning plants. "Here are some of the more important facts show, on which we must base our planning for the needed supply of agricultural wrkeros. * "For normal production and harvest in the past, the labor needed to be recruited outside the immediate vicinity of the crop, not including local workers usually engaged in agricultural work, was: ' : 400 for spinach crop, December 1- May 1. 22,000 for strawberry harvest, May 1- June 15. 5,000 for beans and grapes, June 15- Septcmber 15. v 23,000 for cotton, September 1-De- •iember 1. Many of these workers move from one crop to another so that 20,000 agricultural workers could be shifted from one harvest to another and handle these normal requirements.

" ' Hides, objects to removal of American-Japanese from vilal West Coast C ; (Continued on Page Three) areas. The union argues that these citizens might be deprived of some of their constitutional rights. Cerlainly Americans of Japanese ancestry removed from those zones suffer loss of some liberly. But isn't it preferable that they lose a few freedoms than for the traitors among them to blast war plants, air fields or guide invading forces? Take a more touchy case, involving freedom of the press, but one which no doubt causes the Propaganda Ministry in Berlin to rock with glee. This paper, published near Detroit, reaches few people, but by circulating its lies and half truths might drive a drastic division into our united front. Today, with the United Stales at war with Germany, Japan and their camp followers, this paper has the gall to say that Jap aggression "is nothing more than an expansion of our own Monroe Doctrine"; that the super-race Nazis are the milk-white innocent victims of "sacred war declared against Germany nine years ago by the Jews;" that Ihe idea of an all-out, United Nations offensive is "Moscow-born and will produce a defeat abroad and the liquidation of Americanism at home." In other words, the Japs are just dandy, the Nazis are nice and we should never, never think of taking the offensive in this war. Call MacArthur home. Few responsible persons demand curtailment of freedom of speech, press, assembly and movement. But if a few hotheads, by abusing the same freedoms they would probably deny us if they were in power, threaten the security of all, it's about time to swap our silk gloves for brass knuckles. We are fighting to save the Bill of Rights and the way of life with which it blesses us. Let's don't let anyone crawl safely behind that Bill of Rights in an effort to tear it from us permanently. Let's keep the cat in section 4-19-24. Monkey Business LOS ANGELES— (ff)-, Eddie Tabel, 3, felt something on his head and reached up. It was a live monkey.

Industrial consumers such as confectioneries and candy makers will register for rationing on the April dates at high schools. Individual' consumers will register May 4 and 7 at elementary schools. You Bring the Fire; They'll Put It Out , COLORADO SPRINGS —(/PK The fire department here claims it has made the shortest run on record. An ash hauler's truck, belching smoke and fire from stem to stern, rolled up to the back door of the fire station. A driver leaped from his seat and rushed inside to summon the fire laddies to the rescue. They drove the big pump- er half around the building, attached a hose at a nearby plug and soon had the flames extinguished.

U.S. Lifts Bars, on'Sour Gas' More Liberal Regulations Regarding Drilling LITTLE ROCK — Governor Adkins announced Friday the federal restrictions on drilling operations in the south Arkansas "distillate" fields had been lifted, thereby assuring production of sufficient natural gas to meet all requirements of the stale's war plants. Petroleum Co-ordinalor Harold L. Ickes, revoking a former order that only one well be drilled to each 640 acres, approved the Arkansas Oil and Gas Commission's method of spacing gas wells in three fields. Chairman O. C. Bailey of the commission, who notified the governor of Secretary Ickes' new order, said spacing henceforth will be authorized on the following basis: McKamie field, one well to each 160 acres. Four new wells are needed in this area, it was said. Macedonia field, one well to each 80 acres. Dorcheat field, one well to each 40 acres. Robert C. Knox of El Dorado, representing the Macedonia-Dorcheat operators, said full development of the two areas will require the drilling of J.8 more wells. 5 Army Fliers Killed in Crash Two Others Injured When Bomber Falls at Memphis MEMPHIS— (/P)— Five persons were killed and two others injured when a two-motored Army bomber crashed and burst into flames after taking off from the municipal airport here.

C. FRIEDLANDER Wide World Features Writer India is bracing herself now for a possible invasion from the Aryan (according to Hitler) Germans from the west and from the Aryan (also ac- I cording to Hitler) Japanese from the j east. Three thousand years ago India was overwhelmed by a real Aryan (ethnologically speaking) invasion. Many of the tangled problems that make her proposed independence a headache both to England and India can be traced to that first invasion. In a generally tropical country as large as that of the United States east of the Rocky Mountains, 350 million people representing more than 45 races speak 225 languages, are separated into 2,400 castes and tribes, and practice nine major religions. Eleven supervised self-government while 562 Indian states are ruled by Indian princes. How to compromise all these conflicts is the India problem—then how to keep them compromised under an independent native government. British opponents of independence assert it can't be done. Indian independence leaders say it can; Indian moderates aren't sure; Indian minor- I ities are worried about what would happen to their rights under Hindu, majority control. Winston Churchill has s^ut Sir Stafford Cripps to India with another promise of independence—after the war—IF the government's scheme can says Miss Ruby MpKee, worthy 1 ',' matron of the order, is eligible for; ^ registration and is invited to particii* *l pate in the show. There are no entry 1 ' j fees and babies may be registered ?;, without obligation on the part of the, £ parent at Hope Furniture Co, 220 South Main street. t Much interest is being manifested ^' in the baby show and neailjf 100 ''. babies have been registered to par- • ticipate. t Headache Conies When Day's Ended HOLLIS, Okla.—WP)—Dick Dudley's hobby is tabulating the things that are on the desks of "average female secretaries."'
