' Melon Season on Last Legs, Yield Fair Tho watermelon season in this section is on its last legs and only a i'ew late ones arc being sold locally. Truck loads, so prom inent only a few days ago, are a thing of the past now. Despite weather conditions — the driest season in years — production in this county was about 75 per cent normal. Larger acreage was offset. by the, .reduction in yield. Growers who normally produced 15,000 pounds o£ melons last year got only 7,000 to 10,000 pounds this season. Over 1,200 acres of melons for market were planted in Hempstead this season — a majority of them being moved by truck. Only 27 rail carloads were shopped by Monts Seed Store from this city 1 and shipping lasted only a couple of weeks. Competition from trucks is grad ually cutting into the rail shipping. Many truckers buy melons on the vine and deals of this type save the producer expense of pulling and hauling to market. The big trucks simply drive to the field and load direct. Some growers estimate' that at least 95 per cent of the melon crop is moved by trucks. Growers grossed from $75 to $100 per acre on marketable melons with the production and harvesting costs running about $25 per acre. But Hempstead producers run more as a rule because melons produced here always sell at top price. War veterans at Ft. Roots Hospital near Little Rock, Sunday enjoyed some 200 choice Hempstead watermelons which were taken to them by the local Ramsey-Carglle VFW post. Each year the VFW takes a load of melons to the hospitalized veterans. Most of the melons were donated by Hempstead growers — Ervln Jones, O. D. Mlddlebrooks, W. H. Light, J, W. Hairston, Albert Smith, John Llpvd and Claud O'Steen. Trucks to haul them were furnished by Midwest Dairy Co. and Standard Auto Co. of Hope.

Johnson and Rayburn announced yesterday their advocacy of Stevenson's Democratic presidential bid in the^ face of opposing stands by Gov. Allan Shivers and Atty. Gen. Price Daniel, Democratic nominee {pr U.S. senator to succeed Tom Connally. oth Shivers and Daniel have expressed personal opposition to Stevenson's cdndidacy because the Illinois governor said he agreed with President Truman in advocating federal ownership of the supposedly oilrich off-shore tide lands.

Mobster Settles Income Tax Debt WASHINGTON The ROV- Detroit Case Cited as One Smoothed Over WASHINGTON, UPI — House in- Ivestigators today charged that the [Justice Department has been ["most dilatory" in some prosecu- and cited a Detroit war fraud |case as a "typical example." : i Counsel Robert A.

In addition to the indictment, Shivers called "Trumanism." Johnson said that while he did not agree with Stevenson's stand for federal ownership of the tie lands he would back the nominee of the National Democratic party. Rayburn at his home in Bonham said, "I indorse Sen. Johnson's statement fully." Two other veteran Democrats, Rep. Lindley Beckworth of Gladewater and John C.

Ike.. lyi.urry yesterday on the lo- f&lSj of '''brarid name purchasing" by the Arkansas Highway Depart ment. Murry, who previously refused to rule on the question, said he expected to have his answer ready "soon". In connection with the ruling, Deputy Auditor B. E. Friday said that if the attorney general finds the -method of inviting bids of "brand" name invalid, the state auditor's office will not issue a warrant to pay successful bidders. The controversy concerns an,invitation by the department on motor graders specifying three brand names; Austin-Western, Galion and Warco equipment. Bids invited by the department were opened yesterday, plus bids from three suppliers handling other brands of motor graders. Piices listed by the "non-brand- name" dealers generally were lower than listings by suppliers complying with the Highway Depart ment invitation.

He spent three and a half-years as a prisoner of war and was one of 50,000 POWs who built the Burma railroad.
