Mr. Roosevelt added that Uie problem of general health is closely related to the problem of rural education. And he pointed out that about 40 per cent of all men examined by Selective Service had to be rejected for physical or mental reasons. He went on: "We could not'be satisfied with the stale of this nation until there was opporiuiity for all to achieve good education p.nd good health. These goals could not be reached overnight 01- by wishful thinking, but would come from hard work and realistic thinking and could be achieved by striving day and night to take the rural educational system out of the 'horse and buggy era'.''

But t was estimated that less than Iwo- h'irds of Ihe number of pickers that nre needed for the Arkansas cotton crop are at work. Because of the drouth, picking r larlcd about three weeks later than usual, and plants report that fespite four weeks of ideal weather, work Is between two and three weeks behind normal. The slow rate at which short-handed compresses arc being forced to process and store cotton has increased dependence on fair weather. Cotton bales left in the open suffer much dnm- agc from rain. Gates said labor has been recruited from every possible source. Anc that an undisclosed number of prisoners of war are being used. 75 Norrcoms Promoted The status of ratings at BAA hawed a little last week, with tli csult that 15 Gls began sewln new stripes.
