•f. 3FA1QB FOtlH HOPE STAK, HOPE, ARKANSAS ,,1938 '.:•! RAISIKC A .. > * ' ~ By OliY* Robert* B«rtea Free Library Is Fine But 'Teener Needs His .Own Collection 111 The problem of good reading for 'adolescents is really no longer a problem at all, with the hundreds of mag- • nifieent volumes now published for children of early teen age. Public •libraries are stocked to bulging with ihigh class material ofr these boys and girls; better still, refrence clerks ready \o advise with selections are different 'from the old time dignitary who mere- fly pointed to the catalogue, • ^ Furthermore, school libraries with •their shelves of selected and required .^reading are a boon denied the young• iters of my day. """ <• The child in his teens is more than 'ready for a personal library, however, it is one thing to read a fine story or biography and another to own it. I have always decried the one weak•ness' of the free-text book system, that it leaves no source for refrence later. I lay beside this grievance that of the library system. Necessary and fine thrugh libraries are, they leave a decided gap in a young person's life. Books are friends. The 'people in them are friends. Everyone i-from D'Artagnon to George Washington, from Jo March to Joan of Arc, is a present vibrating figure whose near presence is a comforting thing. Reading Is Education All reading is education of a sort. Good reading is the agent for almost everything fine there is: inspiration, ^sportsmanship and facts. • Lately I have been devouring a lot of grand books for the young acloles- vcent. I have burnt my lamp into the Dearly hours forgetful of time and eyesight, lost completely in new biographies such as "Leader of Destiny" by Jeannette Eaton (Hat-court Brace), a gripping life story of Washington. Boys then were mature and ready for careers at sixteen. This is Washington stripped of his formal legends and become the human being; the awkward young man, the uncertain lover, tlie discouraged soldier, the trobled statesman. Now I am reading "Penn" the story of the founder of the Pennsylvania Commonwealth. More midnight oil and loss of sleep. I thought I knew history. I am only learning.- The little boy, William Penn, stdying Latin from six A.M. to six P.M. at nine years of age off there in London under the shadow of the great Tower. His rise to royal favor. His ileuls and plans for a Utopia in the new world- A very human and fuiuscituiting account of greatness at it.s best. Another biography that will bring young students of American Literature closcsr to one of it.s famed authors is "The Happy Autocrat" (Longmans), by Hildegnnle Hawthorne.' Oliver Wendell Holmes, the Doctor-Author of Cambridge and Boston, who wrote "Old Ironsides," and "The Chambered Nautilus," was such a human, kindly, hard-working man. given to puns, that the reader sighs on closing the saga of his busy life. Bocks Help Memory There are so many good books, but soon 1 shall compile some new lists for you. Adventure, science, history, everything. At a formative age when memory is rclnlive how wise it is to put a shelf in John's or Mary's room and. one by one. add to the treasure they hold. I read these books for young people with ttis. much orelish as 1 rruse lit* erntiJre for adults. They are indeed adult nnd not 'writteji dowh", 1 want to add : thaf "Andrew Jackson" by Marqtifcr James, (Bbbbs-MerrUl) Is not a juvenile, but if <Jrpu own it, youf sons.of ..fifteeh : to twenty, and daughters too, will find-At a fascinating reci- al., l like biogtaphy, as you may have noiced.

Nothing counts'but. the government nnd the government cares for no one. £o • writes an author new to most English nnd. American readers, Peter Mendelssohn, in a novel that is largely inithobiographiciil, "All.That. Matters" (Henry Holt. ?2.50). Mendelssohn, how an exile from Nazi Germany had' previously written five books. • His. picture is a hopeless. one. He begins with the idpllic life of a newly married couple -on. the Riviera. Then they return to their native Geramny where their first child is born. Immediately they recognized the change that has come over the country sense the air of persecution and intolerance in the streets. And all this, of course, nauseates the young husband. It strains at his nerves. Finaly, one day he defends a Jew and is forthwith attacked by the Brown Shirts. He moves to Berlin, edits a weekly newspaper which is revolutionary. He is arrested, imprisoned without trial or consideration. All that matters is that the .state must not be opposed. It is a damning indictment of the Nazi regime that Mr. Mendelsshon writes here. But the story is not obscured by his rancor. Rather it is swift-moving, dramatic, as on the heels of a man fleeing for his life. It should prove one of the most timely novels of the entire year. —P.G.F. Construction Is Started on Mill Mill Would' Crush Peanuts, Soy Beans.and Cotton Seed FRESCOTT, Ark.-Construction has .-'Irciuly begun on the Cox Brothers Cotton Seed Oil Mill in Prescott, as a result of practically a year's work of the Chamber of Commerce.

They are also Building a peanut butter manufacturing plant and a mixed feed plant. The mill is expected to start operation about March 1 and will employ approximately 25 men but no doubt will be employing 100 men within a year. This type mill is particularly adapted to this prea and its success is assured wtih the possibilities of the production of soy beans and peanuts within a radius of 50 miles of the mill. The seven counties including and adjacent to -Nevada county, in 1936, planted 54,000 acres and in 1937 planted 42,000 acres of peanuts and the average production for the seven counties is 42,546 bushels annually. With a cash market and not being penalized by frieght rates this production could be /multiplied by ten. This mill will be a great asset to Nevada county as well as to adjacent counties and will furnish farmers a better cash market for peanuts, soy beans and cotton seed. Fanners will be able to buy feed from the mill without being penalized for freight rates as has been the case heretofore. Mr. Ernest Cox expects to make his home in Prescott and will probably move his family here about Christmas. The Chamber of Commerce was successful in negotiating' for property belonging to George F. Cress of Little Rock, located on the Missouri Pacific railroad east of town at the silo 'of the old Prescott Ice Company. This new will will be housed in several buildings covering an area of approximately two and one-fourth acres. NOTICE—Patterson's Auction Sale, entire stock of merchandise sold at auction.

Arkansas produces annually between 9,000,000 and 10,000,000 bushels of rice. Approximately 10% of the annual production of Arkansas is absorbed by the Brewing Industry at satisfactory^ prices.
