Fair Facts We chirtnccl the other dny with C. Bochcrt, roly-poly exploiter -of the Mineoln Fair, and asked the tinmes of the thriller acts on the card this year. He didn't know, sold Mr. B.—a fair never knows what thriller acts will appear on the program until the last minute. What with fair and carnival work being plentiful this year, acrobats, trapeze performers and high-wire walkers have little leisure. And since they follow a hazardous line of work, fair Impresarios never know when their performers will be cancelled out of the show by injury or death. Bochart tells us that in one week the Mincola Fair booked six thriller acts and cancelled six, because all had accidents on oilier fair grounds.

With the CountyAgent Clifford L. Smith Terrace Outlet The most important part of a terrace system is the outlet. If, for any reason, a properly protected outlet cannot be provided, the system is doomed before it is built, and is likely to do more harm than good. A pasture, wooded area, field boundary, an abandoned road, or a suitable natural watercourse may be developed into a suitable outlet, according to information just received by Earl L. Arnold, Extension Agricultural Engineer, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. It is ideal to spread the water to such an extent that it is taken up readily in the soil. This can frequently be accomplished by allowing each terract to have its own individual outlet onto a pasture or wooded area. Under favorable conditions on moderate slopes, Mr. Arnold said that a terrace outlet may be satisfactorily protected by vegetation. Then the outlets should, be from 8 to 16 feet in width, and the sod laid in stripe across the bottom of the outlets covering one- fifth to one-third of the area. It is often desirable to place wooden baffles in the outlet to control erosion until the vegetation is thoroughly established. If the outlet is so steep that vegeta- Czechoslovakia, small but chesty ally cf France, boasts prer.ardness for any eventuality. Pictured above arc scenes from recent maneuvers.

Farmers should not overlook Ihese crops jusl because they already have their barns filled with abundant crops of lespedc/.a and oilier legume hays. The storage of Ihesc acreages of late corn and sorghum in trench silo will provide an insurance in future years against crop failures and periods of short feed supplies. Late corn in most instances will make a very low grain yield and poor fodder if cut and cured dry. However, it will make excellent silage, and should be saved this way, according to V. L. Greeg, Excnsion Dairyman, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. There is a big acreage of sorghum crops this year throughout Arkansas, Mr. Gregg said, of both sweet and grain varieties. Some fields are ready now for the silo, while others will come in later. However, an abundant supply of feed is on hand on most farms at this time, and farm people :hould take advanlage of this situation by storing it in trench silos for use in less favorable times. Approximately 25 farmers in Hempstead county have indicated their intentions of filling Irench silos Ihis fall New Rifle Fires 5 Times Faster By George Ross (jcorGe Rcss' Column Becomes aji Information Booth NEW YORK—Casual Information Stagg's Artificial Limb establishment on Broadway occupies a room adjoining a dancing school.
