M. C. A. where 85 boys participated. Of these 75 were taught to swim, and were able to pass the beginners test which was, "jumping into the water over their heads and swimming 50 feet without stopping" As a summer feature the Y. M. C. A. is planning special activities open to boys between the ages of nine and, fourteen as well as for boys fourteen and above.

The "Y" will offer this year gym classes, hikes, swimming, life-saving, horseshoe, tennis, baseball, softball, and many other activities.

VAN DYKE Joe Cooke Van Dyke, evangelist of Memphis, arrived in Jackson yesterday to begin a series of gospel meetings at the West Capitol Street Church of Christ. The meeting will begin this morning and continue for two weeks, with services daily at 7:45 p. m. and Sundays at 11 a. m. and 7:45 p. m. Congregational singing will be directed by K B. Baggett. Van Dyke is one of the most suc-cessfcl young preachers of the Church of Christ. After making a brilliant record in David Lipscomb college at Nashville, he began work with the Normal Church of Christ in Memphis, where he is still located. During the few years he has been there, the church has enjoyed a phenomenal growth, and interest demands the erection of a new building, which is now being built. Van Dyke also has taken time off at intervals to lead in evangelistic meetings in Tennessee, Alabama, Texas, and Mississippi. For his opening message at 11 o'clock this morning, the speaker will take as his subject, "Mountains," and at 7:45 he will discuss, "An Evangelistic Meeting." The meeting-house of the Church of Christ, which is located at the corner of West Capitol and Wacas-ter, has been recently repaired and repainted, and the congregation plans to make this one of the best meetings in its entire history. Visitors always receive a warm welcome, and the public is cordially invited to attend all services. $ .

"Phone the Y today for full particulars of the summer program. A nominal fee of $2.50 will be charged for the entire summer program." g y .i.wjm.' .w ui.iwn'Jl"yiM.'f LUNCH Roast Beef, Creamed Potatoes , 12c SUPPER Baked Ham, Raisin Sauce The planting of permanent pastures, a primary need of Mississippi agriculture, is included in the list of farm practices for which fanners will receive payments under the new national soil conservation program, advises E. H. White, assistant state manager, AAA. The rat o payment is $2.00 per acre if the pasture is established on cropland between January 1, .1936 f.nd October 31, 1936. Pastures may be planted to perennial grasses or grass and legume mixtures. The state extension service recommends a mixture of grasses and legumes as legumes increase the amount and improves the quality of grazing. Legumes ere rich in both minerals and proteins. In addition they add nitrogen to the .soil. The total v soil building payment for a farm may not exceed the soil building allowance. This allowance may be calculated by multiplying the number of acres used exclusively for soil conserving crops in 1936, plus the number of acres planted to legumes following truck crops, by $1.00." For example, a farm with 30 acres in soil conserving crops in 1936 may qualify for a aiaximum of $30 of oil building payments. For a farm with 30 acres of conserving crops and 10 acres in legumes following truck crops, the maximum soil building payment would be $40. County agents are urging farmers to establish a sufficient acreage in permanent pastures as they provide the cheapest food that can be grown and at the same time are most effective in controlling erosion and improving soil fertility.
