First designed only lo protect 1 Arkansas dealers of gasoline, lo prevent overloading of the highway niid for enforcement of Ihe lltmor laws, the station has many "departments" as Uic heaviest traffic in history passes through this point. Long regarded ns a nuisance by most travelers after the station was established 1C years ago, that reputation has been "lived doivn" nnd now has become known as the station which not only aids but helps keep people out of trouble. At present the three employes lire enforcing the quarantine against ear corn from certain northern stales because of the Infestation In those stales. But this Is just one more duty.

Of the 120 tons of cotton seed, 506 tons Is processed at Blythevilte nnd the balance goes to Osceoln, Wilson nnd Memphis. Of the soybeans, 05 per cent are processed here. Oilier dally loads included 10 trucks or 80 tons of alfalfa liny, mostly iji liitcr-sldlc shipment; 10 trucks or 105 tons of coal mostly for Blythevllle; 16 truck loads or DO tons of produce, mostly Inter-state; 55 trucks of 550 tons of general freight, of which 60 per cent is war materials, and mostly inler-slnte shipment. At liii.s time of the year a "want" llsl is kepi al the station of people who want to buy coal, corn, hay, livestock and other products rm<l welcome to travelers. aloiiK with n another list of people wanting to •"-'"'• -' - ' sell such Hems. The trucker Is advised where he can sol a load back home and many hundred loads of soy imd cotton drink of Ice water nnd rest room facilities, which have brought the station many compliments. The unusually heavy traffic over this highway causes heaviest work of the station nl present. The official weight scales arc used for weighing of all trucks coming into the stale and those whose loud originated within the state as a protection to the fast deteriorating highways. Weight allowance Is figured on the load with the limit be r S 18,000 'pounds per axle. Tills limit now conforms lo that of most other states which has been made more liberal during Ihe past. two years borausc 1 of needed war transportation. Seldom Is an overload now checked . at the scales because Ihe big transport companies are more interested in making Ihe highways hold out for the duration and scarcity of rubber has made it poor business to overload tires. " : All trucks coming Into the stale aic Inspected for excess gasoline; passenger cars and trucks hauling their own products lire allowed to enter the slate with 20 gallons of gasoline while' for-hire trucks are taxed six and a half cents for all Kill nil Spoil jaur Day—CM after It HOW Don't put off getting C-2223 lo relieve pain of imuciilnr rheumatism and other rheumatic paina.Caution: Use only ns directed.

When strawberries and peaches tire txliif, marketed here, produce trucks- from Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis and olher cities find it adviinlagcous to come to this sin- lion where they learn where to go for products and often can lie told the price. Many times during the past season, station employes directed empty trucks returning north to go to I.cachville for loads of watermelons, lleny Crops Hauled Of much interest Is the seasonal hauling. In Inlc Spring the Florida strawljcrries tegln lo arrive, averaging about 50 tons dally; then about 75 Ions of Louisiana berries slaH coming nnd when there are no more of these, Hie Arkansas berries show up. Then, the trucks coming here nrc directed to nccbe, Judsonla, and olher Arkansas berry fields, Cnbbagc, potatoes and other vegetables move through here in about Ihe same order. Corn moves heavily In the Pull from Illinois and Missouri inlo Arkansas and olher southern slalcs. 'One tiny, )25 tons of feeding corn passed over the scales. More Hi mi 100,000 gallons of gasoline dally passes oul of the state at Ihis point, going norlh. Hundreds of Ions of military supplies dally pass here. Hides For Servicemen Since transportation has been so crowded, employes have operated a waiting station for service men so Ihcy could get home as quickly as possible. . Helping downs dully, service men must show their pass before trucks me asked to give rides. This service 1ms been greatly appreciated by members of the armed forces who often Imd more ; time at home because of these "lifls." Inspections for Illegal whisky during, prohibition days nnd for unstamped liquor now have been of much help to officers. Drunken drivers are not allowed to pass the permit station, if seen, wllh possibly numerous accidents averted Ijecause of Ihe watch for such law breakers, Personnel of the station is made up of three men, the revenue inspector, Curtis J. Little, retired major of Infantry, who fought overseas in World War I; Ear) Leggett, a Purple Heart veteran of World War I shot through the lungs at Chateau Thierry, and Milton Yar- bio, veleran of World War II, both of whom are Iraffic and safety men. They are stationed for eight hour shifts at Uic ucat lilllc frame building, surrounded wllh evergreens nnd flowers,'where Ihey watch the world go by; give travelers a sample of Uic state's hospitality and answer questions about Arkansas, Mississippi Comity nnd Blylheville.
