Soon, after the Dessau, a ficr man \cssel, reported 13 Icebergs approximately 200 miles south ot the tall of the bnnks, the following cryptic message v»as ladloed by the hjdrographic sen Ice of tlie navy: "Information received from Norlli Atlantic Track Agicement that effective Immediately Track A eastbound shift to cross lonj,Hu<le 47 in,-latitude 38-45.

A third vessel, the General Green, based at St. Johns, is equipped with oceanograplilc equipment for permanent ice observation work. ,' . Efficiency of the palrol is increased by assigning a special ice- patrol officer every four years; he •spends his flrit year understudying his predecessor and tiie three subsequent years alternating be- ,,t«een full-time service during the ice season and instruction at Harvard- and Massachusetts Institute of Technology during the winter.

HUGHES GIN CO Before the Lewises came there were Howard Games and Aubrey Smith to inspire the boys and ilrls of tilts little school which was itnrted in a single room taught by >ne teacher. And all the time there have been men and women n this community who through the school board nmf the farm niieau have been interested in forwarding this educational, enterprise. It's not an easy thing for Hie eighth grade graduates to go on o high school but the school dis- lict encourages their doing so by mylng a fiat rate tuition at both lie ivfanlla and Dell school and by arranging transportation. When the school opens In July, there will be one of the most up to late of school buses to carry pupils o high school. The bus meefe the 3ell bus at Rtseland In order hat Uic'jc who wish to go to the Dell schcol niny make connections and their it carries the other group on to Manila.

Other plans for the year include the buying of more playground Arkansas State college nt -Jones- bought two weeks ago, lelivered July 10. be The new bus Is only one of several improvements planned for the icxt school term. A sound movie projector will bo nirohnsed by the school board for he purpose cl Introducing- educn- lonal niins Into the classroom district In .which there are two more while schools'and one negro school. The Installation of electric fans will] make the Lost Cane building the first rural, school in the conn-, ty to be equipped with fans. The appropriation Includes the adding of a stage and two dressing rooms to the three reom building. Another building project of..Die group was completed in '37 when the tcacherage was erected. Tills year.will mark the completion of another project. When concrete walks are laid on the school ground, It will mean another step forward in the campus beau- tiftcation project. About $300 has been spent In filling in the campus to eliminate a muddy playground. Among the extra curricula!' activities of Lost Cane students are two trips to Memphis eacli year. This past year the Lewis trio accompanied them to Memphis during the cation carnival season and also at the end of school. Each year, they arc cxc\ised from the classrooms to attend county club and farm bureau rallies here. Transportation for these trips is arranged by the scl^ol board and fnrm bureau members. Perhaps the secrets behind the progressivencss of this group are Hie facts that a large number- ol winiTof i , "'""'""MM ""-' 'acts mat a large number- ol idea of moving pictures has the 100 families in the commn exi " commu- — .,,„ , ... o i**ui,im^ iiiia >een experimented with In the com- inmity since January when the school board made arrangements vlth Mr. and Mrs. T.

They cooperate in working far their school just as they worked for their electric lights and their gravel road executive secretary. So when the Lewises return from (heir vacation In. Izard county this Slimmer to continue their work, they will find many new improvements accomplished and others contemplated. The biggest change how- over will be that Miss Lewis won't be there—she plans to teacli at Milligau Ridge this year—but nevertheless, the new teacher, whoever it may be, will probably fall in with Mr. and Mrs. Lewis and the Community's scheme of things. Cooperation is the keynote of the community ahd It's difficult to imagine anyone's going to Lost Cane without becoming imbued with that quality. Farmers' Increased Use Of Electricity Revealed Use of electricity on the farm as a work-saver increases as the income of the farmer increases, ac- ccrding to D. S. Lantrip, county agent of North Mississippi county. When tlie farm income is low, use of electricity is low and when farm income is high more farmers use electricity. In 1D32 figures compiled by the Electric Institute show that there were 2,5BV Arkansas farm.? served by electricity. This figure increased to 7.5CD In 1937. Tlie number of domestic consumers in the state, both farm and residential advanced from 88.S13 on' December 31, 1932 to 108,386 at the same lime in 1037. Sale ot household mcdel electric refrigerators als^. reflected an increase when iarm income'was increasing. In 1932 as reported by the Edison Electric institute 2,992 electric refrigerators were purchased while in 103C, 11,907 were purchased and in 1937, 12,789 were purchased. Consumption of electricity on tlie farm shows 'big increases as farm Income rose. In 1938, 1,936,000 kllo- ' watt hours of electricity were used on farms while in 193G farmers used '4,260,000 kilowatts and in 1937 they vised 5,523,000 kilowatts. Total electric consumption for the'state Increased from 265.415,000 kilowatts in 1933 to 372,900,000 kilowatts in 1930 and to 438,013,0000 kilowatts in 1931. were released. Judge Doyle Hehder- scn ruled that because the prisoner escaped from an out of slate prison that the defendants could not be held on those charges. * Jim Andrews was fined $15. on™ a charge ot disturbing the peace.

The case of Frank Ilaywood, charged with assault ("id battery, was continued. , t i In the case of Agnes Bailey, charged with selling liquor without a license, the defendant failed to appear and forfeiture on the bond was declared and the clerk directed to cite bondsmen. The same thing happened in the case of C. E. Gaylord who illso forfeited his bond on a similar charge, both of which are old cases, officers said.
