BLYTIIKVILLE, ARKANSAS. TUESDAY, NOVratlJKK 11, 1930 SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTS' Crit?. Presents Detailed Statement of 1 Years Agri- culftiral Achievements. A dived saving of many thousands of Collars to Mississippi county farmers tlirouyh services furnished without, charge and Him the cooperative buying of seed and .- fertilizer, .and vastly greater benefits conferred through the Introduction of improved methods, reflect a year of. substantial achievement in the face of unusual difficulties. J. E. Critz, county farm agent for the Chlekasawba district, told the Mississippi county quorum court ai Osceola yesterday in submitting his annual report. Summarizing his work .for the year Mr. Critz said: "I believe the high spots in the year's work are the establishment 'or tlie Blythcville branch office of the cooperative- collon marketing association, Ihe successful 10.000 acre soybean campaign, the vaeci- • nation of 2,OWi hogs, the cooperative buying and selling of planting seed, cotton and soybeans, and fertilizer, and the publication of the Farm and Home Program of work for our county." Soybeans for Feed The soybean program, Mr. CrUz declared, has proved the salvation '•, of Mississippi county farmers so \fav as feed for livestock is concerned. He predicted an increased ficreagc next year, as soybeans have . proved to be the one sure feed crop under all weather conditions. He also predicted increased acreage next year of the cotton varieties that have been shown by experiments to be best 'adapted to this vicinity, pointing out that establishment of the cotton cooperative office here had given farmers a. better appreciation of tlie desirability of growing cotton of an inch staple or better, while test plots ^•ith the recommended varieties under the difficult conditions of the past year have shown -that they give heavier yields.

Conlenlion of Improvement Districts Upheld by Supreme Court. I.HTU-: UOCK, ARK. — The riinnol obtain an absolute to tax-forfeited hinds under Ac'.

Justices Ktrby and Mi-haf- ly dissented from the majority opinion. Kiff Arrrjge Involved Title to more than 1,500,000 acres of forfeited land In the stale would have been affected hnd the Su- iri-mc Court sustained contention:: of the attorney general that the bw whs intended to give the stall 1 in unconditional title to such lands. The case come up to Ihe supreme court on appeal trom St. Frnncls county chancery court to ascertain whether the-chancery court had correctly construed Act. 296, adopted by the general assembly for confirmation of stale tax titles. Acting under (he 1029 slaluie, the attorney general, through J. A. Teller, special attorney, Inslitul- ; than fl.OOC acres of • delinquent land In St. Francis county, seeking lo have the title quieted In the slate so (he land could he sold under another 1929 statute fit one dollar an acre. Districts Intervened The St. - Francis Levee District and several other drainage districts and road districts, which held delinquent liens against some of the land involved, intervened and resisted' the suit- on the ground that the interpretation of the attorney general would 1 bar the districts from collecting delinquent taxes and would abrogate -contracts between the districts and their bondholders. At the- attorney general's office ,t was said that ..the effect of the statute, as Interpreted, by,-tljR .Supreme Court, will be to permit the itate to go Into chancery court ,nd confirm tax sales against Irregularities In forfeiture proceed- ngs, whereas, "heretofore the pur- :hnser of the land has had to Institute' such suits individually. This is construed to mean thai the purchaser, ol lax-forfeited lands will obtain a clear title from the state as far as irregularities are concerned, but the. purchase] still will have -to pay dellnquenl improvement district taxes, which in practically all Instances are said lo exceed the slate taxes and In some cases value of the land In the opinion written by Jus tlce Humphreys, the court Indicat cd that many provisions .of thi act had not been touched upon in the ruling handed down yester day.
