Thick Cotton One Way to Fight Weevil Thick spacing cotton is one way o fight the boll weevil and other cotton insects, and at the same ime to relieve the labor shortage, points out Oliver L. Adams, county ngent. Experiments conducted by the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, he says, revealed that hree plants per hill made 20 per cent more cotton than one plant per lill. The distance between hills vas a hoe's width. Also, he says ,the thicker spaced cotton was 9 per cent earlier than he stand with one plant per hill. Three plants per hill, with hills a we's width apart, in 3-foot rows, ives about 13,450 plants per acre, which the county agent says, seems o be almost ideal spacing for colon. Instead of growing large vege- ative branches, thickly spaced colon devotes its plant food to the :etting of an early crop of bolls, the county agent explains. By forcing cotton plants to fruit early in the season, he says, it is often possible to get at least a por- ion of the bolls tough enough to withstand boll weevil attacks. ese same early bolls may also reach the maturity stage ahead of he cotton leaf worm in late summer. Early fruiting, the county agent ;ays, also means early opening, and consequently, an early picking season. In an early picking season, more time is available for harvest aefore the fall rains begin. Because it extends the harvest period, an early picking season also en- Deaths Last Night By The Associated Press Albert Stoessel New York, May 13 — (if)— Albert Stoesscl. 49, noted choral and symphony conductor; since 1920 conductor of the New York Oratorio Society and for seven years head of the Music Department of New York University, died last night.

WPB Slashes War Plant Construction Washington, May 13 —(/P)— Because the nation now has the plants and tools needed "to build production to beat the Axis," the Wr.r Production Board today ordered a sweeping cut - back in neew war plant construction and machine tool output. An estimated $4,000,000,000 worth of approved government - financed plant projects and machine tool contracts will be reviewed by the WPB, and in every case where existing plants or machines can do the job, the contracts are to be cancelled and plant construction slopped. Signalling the linal breaking of the machine tool bottleneck, WPB said a number of tool makers would go out of that business and into direct production of munitions. While saying that the conversion job within the war program is on a scale "not unlike the conversion that accompanied industry's original changeover from civilian to military production," and that there would be temporary shutdowns — and resultant unemployment — WPB officials insisted that "any slack, speedily," by the upswinging pace of actual armament production. "With the exception of certain special programs, some special machinery, and further expansion of raw materials production, the United States at last has the machine tools and the capital equipment it needs to build porudction to defeat the Axis," the WPB declared. "For the first time in its history the nation now has a phsical plant adequate to make the maximum use of its resources in men, skill and materials," it said. will be absorbed The armadillo, now about three feet long, was 16 feet long in prehistoric times.

Flashes of Life Urges Farmers to Plant Full Crop Acreage An appeal lo farmers "to plant in full the acreage they can expect to handle under the most favorable cimitnslnaccs" has been made to farmers of Arkansas by Chester C. Davis, administrator of the Wai- Food Administration, according to Earl N. Martindale, chairman of the Hempstead County War Board. In his appeal, Mr. Davis described this season as the most Important planting season in American farm history and urged farmers of the nation to increase acreage planted to needed war crops to produce food for freedom to help win the war and write the peace. Mr. Davis 1 message in part Is as follows: "Tills is the most important planting season in American farm history. We can still increase the number of acres we plant. In a few days it will be too late. "The War Food Administration is asking the farmers to plant to the limit for critical war crops, food crops, and feed for livestock. In the drive that has been made to increase the acreage of beans, potatoes, and oil crops, there was no intention to minimize the importance of other essential crops. Expanded production also of feed grains and hay is vitally necessary if we are to continue our record heavy production of livestock and livestock products. "The War Food Administration i s organizing the county's latent labor resources to help with the harvests this year. "Acting with manufactures and with other agencies of Government, we will do our best to sec that more harvesting machinery is ready by the time it is needed. "We will work for continuing price supports at fair levels in order to minimize risks in the market place. We ask farmers, on their part, in the clays that remain of spring planting, to take an extra degree of chance this year for their country—to plant in full the acreage they can expect to handle under the most favorable circumstances. "There is a critical need for increased production of war crops", J. L. Wright, Acting Chairman of the Arkansas USDA War Board, said in commenting in Mr. Davis' statement. County War Boards have recently sent in sumarics of the farm plan sheets which show that Arkansas farmers are intending to reach their goals of war crops.. This shows that County War Boards and committeemen assisting them have done a good job so far in pointing out to their neighbors the need for the production of the essential war crops. It might be pointed out again that the oil producing crops such as soybeans for oil and pca- ts for oil arc very urgently needed in the! war effort. "Feed grain crops such, as grain sorghums and corn arc also in very great demand if the livestock producers of Ihc state arc to hold their grains already made. It seems likely now that very little feed grains will be available for shipment into the state in the future." "County War Boards, commilte- men and others assisting them should continue to encourage all producers to meet their responsibility in the war effort and produce to the full capacity of their farms." Missouri Black River On Worst Rampage Poplnr Bluff, Mo., Mny 12 —(/P) —Black River, on its worst mm- pag since 1935, spread from Its banks over thousands of acres of farmland nnd swept out two sections of Missouri Pacific railroad tracks between . Poplar Bluff and Williamsvillc today, necessitating rerouting of nil trains operating between this city and St. Louis. The Frisco railroad branch lines between Poplar Bluff and Cape Girardeau and Poplar Bluff and Piggott, Ark., were also under water. A section of East Poplar Bluff, where many persons had victory gardens, was flooded by back water and authorities were assisting many families there and at other points .along the river basin, in evacuating their homes. Rep. Doughton (D-NC) in debate that adoption shouted of the amendment would be "the first step toward abandonment" of the reciprocal trade policy," a statement which was challenged by Rep. Wadsworth (R-K). The New Yorker told the House the world and this nation's Allies would realize the action did not mean repudiation of the reciprocal trade program, and that it would continue the pact program for the duration of the war.

Organized more than 100 years ago, the Society has done little during the last 20 years except hold annual dinners.

The picture: Adolf Hitler's invin- cibles were driving themselves, unescorted, to Allied prison pens. German and Italian soldiers, crowded into every kind of vehicle in their armies except tanks, streamed in a dust - choked file almost bumper to bumper through the battle zone in which the North African campaign was fought for ;ix months and concluded with a six - day Allied attack. Mile after mile, the beaten Axis survivors drove without an sort of British guard along a route where military police were 10 miles or more apart. Like uncertain tourists, the sur- i-endered enemy kept inquiring the correct way to their ultimate destination and at every hail from curious Allied service troops far behind the erstwhile front the Axis vehicles came to a full halt. French, native - born Italians and Arabs stared open mouth at this parade which seemed endless and continued all night. The procession swung through Tunis itself along streets where every house proudly flew the tricolor. Some Axis prisoners played accordions and mandolins, but mostly these truckloads of defeated men were grimly, wearily silent. There was not a single report of any prisoners trying to escape into the countryside, although it would have been easy. This correspondent, attempting to bring back a dispatch to a plane far inland, got caught i n the traffic jam of enemy transport, and British Army chauffeur observed: "The Jerries (Germans) look more fed up with the war than the Italians. I never thought I'd see 'bags of Jerries trying to get to a barbed - wire cage ahead of me." Transportation Collapse Cause of Axis Defeat By HAROLP V. BOYLE With the U. S. Army in Northern Tunisia, May 11 —(Delayed) —(/I 1 ) —The collapse of German transportation was listed today by a United States staff officer as among the chief factors speeding the capitulation of all Nazi troops In the Second . U. S. Army Corp. area. Also hastening their decision to give up, he said, was the knowledge that the Americans had another full division on the way to the battlefront where the Germans alrady were outnumbered and outgunned. Last night 35,012 captives in the ratio of six Gcrrnans to one Italian had streamed Into the prison bull pens. Driblets of prisoners continuing to come in may raise the total to approximately 40,000. (The Allied communique today said the count had been completed and stood at 37,998.) The rapidity with which the Germans were overrun prevented them from carrying out the sabotage they have committecd since on a largo scale east of Tunis before yielding to the British. Much of the huge military booty is in the form of trucks, 88 - millimeter guns, tanks and small arms which will be given to the French who arc suffering from lack of equipment. Discussing the Nazi transportation difficulties, the staff officer- said they were troubled in the last stages by an acute shortage of gasoline and that finally their distribution and supply system broke down completely. "In one supply dump we found 1,000,000 food rations yet some front line German fighters had had nothing to cat for two daytf when they surrendered," he said. "Other units had to give up because they were completly out of ammunition, although the depot supplies were not exhausted. They just couldn't get what they had to the right spot at thp time when it was needed most. "When the big attack came off they obligingly let us go through their infantry without opposition. But instead of trying to smash on forward against their anti - tank gi(ns, as they hoped we would, we just swung our tanks around and bagged their infantry in one big pocket and cut thorn to pieces. Then we worked them over some more with our artillery and the next thing there was a line of German generals knocking at outdoor ready to surrender." Formers Con Get Sweets Despite Ration Farm families can have nil the sweets they want in spite of sugar rationing if they plant sorghum nnd nakc it up Into syrup, according to Oliver L. Adams, county agent. And sorghum syrup la good food, too. He said a gallon of syrup will satisfy the same energy needs of .he body us 8 pounds of sugar. However, the quality of syrup nnd icrc cyllds will depend to a large extent on the variety planted, soil type, and kind of fertilizer used. Well-drained, light soils usually produce the best quality sorghum for syrup. Planting sorghum following a crop that has been liberally fertilized the preceding year is recommended, since this makes It uu- lucossfiry to fcrlili/.c the sorghum. The direct use of manure on sorghum may cause the syrup to have strong flavor. For this reason manure should be used on the crop preceding the sorghum. Where fertilizer is necessary on soils of low productivity, about 100 to 200 pounds per acre of a 3-12-6 fertilizer is recommended. Highest ycilds and best quality syrup, the county agent said, arc produced from long-season varieties, such as Kentucky Honeydew, which matures in about 123 to 13!) days. Other recommended varieties include White African and Honey (also known as Seeded Ribbon canc>, maturing in 120 to 130 days; nnd lied X. Honey Drip, Sugar Drip, and Orange, which mature in 110 to 120 days, usually produce lower yoilds and syrup of lowci quality than the longer-season varieties. , Sorghum can be planted after the soil has thoroughly warmed up in May. By calculating the time required for growing the crop, sorghum, can be planted at a time to mature just after the rush of cotton picking is over and thus avoid conflict between these two jobs. Sorgum should be planted on land that has been prepared as for corn. Rows should be wide enough for convenient cultivation. The seed may be planted solid in the row or in hills. In either c;isc the crop should be thinned to 2 to 4 plants per hill, with the hills about 10 to 14 inches apart. This will require from 4 to 10 pounds of seed per ncre, depending on the method seeding. Thinning should be done before the plants begin to tiller. Additional Information on sor- ;hum production is contained in Sxtenslon Leaflet No. 31, "Grow Sorghum for Syrup." which Is available in the county Extension Office.
