Ws ^ would not have had any apples if I we had not planted the trees eight, nr (en years ago. We would have ' had several hundred busheis of peaches this year had it not besn for the January freeze which practically killed all the peaches in th? ccnntry, but we are not going to destroy this orchard because of a i:iiiur'J:me year. Stir^whwria Beat Cut ton Think' 6?'the farmers in Arkansas that have no orchards at all, and this Is a. wonderful fruit country. Notice thai we made 3125 pounds grapes They were not wild grapes—they came from a vinyard put out several years ago. and like the peach and apple trees had to be looked after every year. 260 craies strawberries estimated value of $910.00. How is that in comparison to 40 acres cotton grown on my Cnddo River farm tills year u'hich produced 5 bales cotton $250.00. Which was most trouble nnd expense—strawberries or the cotton Von say this is an unfair comparison—but each were grown this year. Wonder how many farmers in Arkansas grow stra'.vberriees for their own consumption? I also won- j der how many farmers in Arkan- i sas havj beehives? tf you haven't! any hives you have no honey unless you buy it. Wonder how" many fanners in the hill country of Arkansas grew- "sorghum last year? Sorghum is good to eat and it is wortr>,_.a dollar a gallon- Let me tell you something about this farmer of ours up at tta Sanatorium. He runs a wagon the year round hauling manure from the dairy barn. What goes with your barnyard fertilier? Most- of its buy our fertilizer in sacks and live out of tin cans and paper sacks frrm the grocery store. In order thai you may gel the full meaning of this farmer's wonderful record. I want to say that the receipts rom this farm last year amounted to S13.711.ll. From that, deduct tho expense of $7.183.82 which leaves us a net profit of Sfi.5C7.39. A Year Around Job This farmer at the State Tuber - culcsis Sanatorium works twelve months in the year. If he only wr.rked eleven months he would lose one inontlis pay. Do you. the average farmer, lose anything when you do not work? The common laborer, clerks and professional men and women and our wivo.* and mothers work twelve months in the year. This farmer of ours is paid by the state, and through his eftorls and management we will make a clear profit of 4,000.00 on that farm this year, and : will lose $2.000.00 tn a 200 acre farm cultivated In cotton (ind corn. I run no*, a farmer but I can see the difference between a successful farmer and one who Is a failure.

Attendance Far Below School Age Population (Continued from page one) efficient system it is lacking in many of tile features that characterize ihe most-up-to-date systemr.. The per capita costs indicate that Blythevillc spends less on its pupils than many similar cities, which is due chiefly to the fact that only bare essentials are given tin) pupils. Among the features that other systems have which nre lacking are supervisors in both academic and special subjects, such as penmanship, art and music. There is a woeful lack of library facilities in the grade schools, while the high and junior libraries are inadequate. Each grade room should have a library of several hundred books whereas the present average is les; Ihaii 50. None of the schools has satisfactory arrangements for directed physical education nor a modern gymnasium. There Is no provision for industrial arts while the only vocational courses that are given ai? in the high school .ind they are limited to commercial work, agriculture and home economics. Ar' instruction Is only available in the junior high school. The schools have not toon nub to inaugurate a testing program for a proper placement of puntls according to Ilielr ability. Teachim equipment and supplies are very much limited except where t h r teacher has been able to provide them personally. One of the most pressing needs is playground space at the Slid bury school. Ihan n quarter nearly 500 children, for which, ac cording to standards, there should be 10 ncres space. Except at Cen- Irnl Ward none of the schools ha" adequate playground equipment. The buildings nf the system need i ficneral overhauling, as only th- mcst nccessaiy repairs have been possible. The heating system at (h: Central Word schools Is Inadcqunt OMAHA.
