Sjtinuch, Cucumbers l I Some • difficulty in securing 1 Ji > fiill acreage is being experienced by • both the Hlytheville Canning company • aiu! by (lie Baton compiiny, pickle - jacking concern which is cmle;iyor- ing 'to launch a cucumber growing pro-~ grain in this territory. The reasons arc various, including . the prospect of a largo and prolit- able cotton crop, a Browing season so T favorable that there hits been ,pr«c- 1 tic'iilly no abandonment of crops oi' any ^T kind, and reluctance to sacrifice govern- incut Benefit, payments by following so-called soil-conserving crops with -• truck crops, which are classified as £• soil-depleting. We; believe that if farmers would j carefully check their compliance with ."'' the government's program many would ' find they have an excess acreage of boybeans and other soil-eonscrv- - ing crops, a part of which they could Jcnt Tor. hay and follow with bonus, spinach or cucumbers without sacrilic- « ing any part of then' beuclit pay* incuts. Others have small tracts of idle land or land from which soil- depleting crops have already been removed which they might profitably devote to truck crops, hi any event wo believe it is true that, rcgiirdk'ss of immediate profit, it is very ninnh to the interest of fanners of this ter," litory and of (lie cnlire comniimily ; Unit the casli market which the e;v>, ning factory provides for ci ops, other ; than cotton, and which is pioiiiiscd by ; flic i>icMe industry, be protected. '• Cotton, for the moment, seems to ,. be over the economic hill. But it is ! ' 'almost a certainty that (here will never again be a profitable market for im- limited cotton production. It is not unlikely that circumstances may nKa'iii force the price of cotton below the profit margin. Certainly it is highly (leshnlile to maintain insurance in the w;iy of markets for other crops, ft • is scarcely the province of the Courier News to attempt to advise farmers as to the program they should follow. We strongly believe, however, thai many could profitably investigate the possibility of additional income for this fall. The county agent's office will 'bo glad to give full information as to what may be done in the way of truck crops without jeopardizing benefit pay- mcnts.

Protests of eastern railroads against the new 2-ccnts-a-milo passenger viili; inaugurated June 1 are beginning to grow a bit sciii'ccr in the face of substantially increased revenues. Incomes of 27 eastern roads in June, under the 2-ccnt rate, advanced (J per cejit over those of « year ago. Individually, some roads did even belter: the New York Central showed an 11.2 per cent gain, and the Baltimore & Ohio a JG.7 per cent rise over June, 1035. It's ,not logical, of course, to attribute increases entirely to lower rates. Business generally is improving. By the same token, it's fair lo credit Ihc new fares wilh much of Hi is business. The figures prove that rail service can be popular and profitable if the rates arc right. Civil Service In Counties The Ohio Slate Civil Service commission bus decided to extend the merit system to t'oimly govonunoiit, Placing at least 10,000 jobs under competitive examination. an encouraging maneuver in Die baltl'o Uptake politics otit of government.
