BIX BL.tTHEvn.LB! (ARK.) COURIER NEWS ' ''TUESDAY,'MAY 2,1950 American Farm 1 Bureau Head Is No 'Armchair Agriculturist' Allan B. Kline, American Farm Bureau Federation president who will speak in Osccola tonight, is no typewriter agriculture expert. The knowledge Mr. Kline brings* to' his post as leader ol over 1,000,000 American families was gleaned from actual operation ot an Iowa farm. In 1920, he began farming some land located near VInton. la., aJid owned by his father-in-law. Faced with (he task of squeezing a living from poor land, he turned to hog raising and scraped up enough money to install running water and a central heating plant in his small farm home. He soon gained local repute for his knowledge of hogs. Today he markets around 1.000 hogs every year. Tenacity has marked his career ... he entered Morningslde College In 1909 but, due to financial ex- JBlncies oj the period and World War I Army service, did not finish until six years later. Although he calls himself a liberal Republican, he voted for Al Smith, In what could be termed a gesture of protest, whon Herbert Hoover was noncommilal on a farm program. He also supported the New Deal's farm program. But today he's no capltol errand boy. On the contrary, nc has been one of the most outspoken critics of Truman proposals . . "nan Plan. In the Brannan plan, and other proposals calling for more extensive and stringent government controls over agriculture, he sees a socialistic wedge capable of controlling Work of Research Scientists Helps Broaden Cotton's Scope administration farm namely, the Bran- Althoush nature herself has pro- p^^n^Si^^U vlded a nearly perfect fibre in cot- ion, King cotton has enlisted the aid of a corps of modern scientists to make his fiber even more useful and valuable to man. ' The laboratories 'of textile, experts, chemists, and other scientists are busy making cotton a- dapttlnble to almost every conceivable use in every imaginable form. Some of their developments are amazing. Rescarche scientists only recently have developed fabrics that are wrinkle-proof. Now many cotton fabrics can be treated with a synthetic resin finish which chases wrinkles from the cloth. In addition to giving a wrinkle-resistant finish, the treatment also adds a irctty worsted effect to some of he cotton fabrics. Special Finishes The laboratories nave found means of flame-proofing, waterproofing, and mildew-proofing cottons. They have discovered mc- hods to give cotton fabrics special :inlshes lor particular uses. Among :hcse fabrics are "coated" cottons hat have been developed for practical use by the textile Industry. A coated cotton material has been American economy. Speaking before the National Cotton Council in Memphis last winter.' Mr. Kline said: "The world Is full of delusions today and (the Brannan Plan) is the prime order of delusion . . If you want to buy things cheaply, don't send your money to Washington and expect to get It back. "If we extend controls down the road in our economy, you don't have to guess about what is going to happen—you can see It already." Designers Soy The Twenties Look To Be Revived ../ ' / The latest revival in the fashion .world Is the twenties look, or a hint .of it. Designers have selected the best of that period, and adapted the ldea« to today's needs and stand- .»rds ot beauty. Hind In hand with the "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" revival comes the chemise or tnnfc- neckline^a deep U, front and back, balanced by straps In varying " degrees of thinness. It's the neckline .of the season, appearing in blouses,:dresses, swim suits and evening 1 .dresses. Other ;manlfestions of the' Flam- Ing Youth era are the straight and narrow skirt vying with the accordion pleated skirt; and the long torso line, now happily modified so that the normal waistline Is defined, too. And once again, all that glitters Is up to the minute, fashion- wise, with sparkling rhinestones'and sequins adding to the overall picture of luxury prevalent In 1950 cottons. Chee Armstrong, whose designs are favorites of young fashionables, has created a group of chemise blouses with lr.:ed shoulders to pair with , matching skirts. One, of creamy beige corduroy, is worn with a skirt whose pocket flaps arc aglit- .ter with multi-colored nallhcads and sequins. The long torso Is fetchingly portrayed by Prances Sidcr In her wide selection of tube shirts which take to the strecn when worn with pleated skirts—or are merrily off to the beach to serve as bathing suit cover-ups.

Cottonseed Aids Butter Substitute Medical Association Proves Margarine High in Nutrition Margarine, though less cosily by far than butter, has equal nutritional valim, tests conducted by leading physiologists and reported In the Journal of the American Medical Association have proved. The wholesome vegetable oil ,*[|^, Icspread when fortified with vj,(&. inin A, as all margarine Is today, has the same food value as the more expensive tablespread. This fact was revealed by Dr. Anton J. Carlson, Dr. Harry Lelchengcr. and Dr. George Eisenberg, who conducted the study at the University of Illinois. Two groups of children were observed in the experiment. On» group consisted of 160 children from three to 18 years who were orphans or children of broken homes. This group ate standard brands of margarine during a two-year period In vegetables, pastry, fried foods, and on bread. A second group included 107 children of approximately the same age In another Institution ten miles away. These children ate butter exclusively. Conclusions reached by the Investigation Indicated that there Is no apparent nutritional difference when the source of supplementary (able fat is margarine rather than butter. "The children In the margarine group experienced a' high degree of good health during the study, »nd In comparing their health to that of the butter group It appears to have been higher." the doctors said. "Many other variables also must be considered, however, in accounting for the superior health of the margarine group," they added. In content, margarine Is a itife, nourishing product made flKn choice American vegetable oils. Cottonseed oil It the chief ingredient in the tablespread, each year supplying more than four hundred million pounds for the manufacture of margarine.
