Determinaliou of AAA Benefits Earned Now Proceeding Rapidly \Vilhout moving from their seats in two little rooms on the third floor of the courthouse, a half dozen men are measuring the acreage of each of the 24.000-odd fields that make no the cultivated area of the Chicknsawba district of Mississippi county. And they arc doing it more speedily and more accurately than would be partible If they went into the fields with measuring chains. The work, now well on the way toward completion, is being done to determine the benefit payments earned by; farmers of the county under the fe^jral soil conservation ..prpgvany being made of l-he area 1 of every farm field iu the county and of the I here until well Into the fall and' partly because after the equipment was available It was necessary to wait nearly a month for the ideal atmospheric conditions which are required if satisfactory pictures are to be obtained from a height of 12,000 feet. .The entire set of pictures for all of Mississippi county, numbering about 500, was taken In two days, Oe- lobcr 18 and 19, and about a month later the prints were available and the actual work of checking the crops and measuring the area of each field was started. A crew similar to that working under Mr. Knapponberger is busy at Osceola checking performance In the south end of the county, j The \voi-k there will probably be completed at about the same time as here. Pictures for Crittenden county were taken later than those for Mississippi county -and farmers of that county will probably have a longer wait for their checks. •Headquarters," where slrlke leaders inside one of the Fisher Body plants' in Flint kept In (ouch with strikers oulsidc, was: maintained at this Information window, with workers shown ciigc'rly reaching for books, newspapers, and mall.

Measuring Quickly Done The area measurements are being taken from a series of 133 aerial photographs, covering the entire area of the Chickasawba district. The photographs, originally seven • by nine Inches in size, taken from a height of 12,000 feet, were enlarged to provide a photographic reproduction of the entire surface of the county on a scale of 10 acres -to the square inch. Every field stands out clearly on the enlarged photographs and the area of any one of them can be obtained in a few seconds with the use of cither of two instruments, the planiineter or the rotometcr, both of which measure and compute area without the' necessity of any pencil and paper figuring. The ojwrator simply applies the instrument in the prescribed manner, reads the answer and writes it down. Checks have shown that by this method areas are measured more accurately than would otherwise be possible without painstaking surveys of each field. The procedure was at first viewed with skepticism by some land owners but comparison of the re- |j suits with the known areas of sur- Ifcjeyed Melds has satisfied them of JYits accuracy. Certification of the performance records farmers program pleted about February 10. according to H. C. Knappenberger, who is supervising the work. Sufficient progress has been made, he said, to Indicate that tlie requirements for benefit payments have been met almost 100 per cent in this county. He believes that Mississippi county farmers have earned payments about equal to those made last year under the outlawed AAA production control program. Expects Cliccks in February While certification will not be completed until about February 10 benefit checks for Mississippi county farmers will probably begin arriving in large numbers about February 1. Certificates of performance arc being forwarded to Little Rock as the work progresses and the maljing of checks from the office there will begin before the work here is finished.

More than 130 such markets were opened last summer by home demonstration' oljub .women throughout the stale, and added considerably to their incomes. Such a market will be especially profitable if the farm homo is located on a much-traveled highway, suggests Miss Sybil D. Bates, extension specialist in home Industries, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. Roadside 'markets are co-operative affairs with the whole family participating. Canned fruits and vegetables, preserves, jellies and jams, ' attractively packaged and labeled are quick sellers. High, quality butter is another favorite, and grape juice and cider are easily sold. An expensive building is not necessary for such an undertaking. Native logs or stone may be used to construct a small building or booth near the home where some member of the family can be In charge, Miss Bates said. While the home demonstration clubs do not have a roadside or curb market in Blytheville or Osceola, many of the home demonstration club women have regular "town" customers from whom they receive a weekly income of from $1 to S8. "As surely as the car goes Into town we put into it the things that my city friends ask for," says Mrs. C. E. Lynch of the Nodena club. Mrs. Lynch realized over $18.50 from her sweet peppers and more than that from other fresh vegetables. nd combal, until the "Serapis" I flalll!cl1 h >' two windows. A colo- rrenciercd.

(UP)—In a move to do away with the traditional Commencement exercises, the Traveler, University of Arkansas student newspaper, pubr lished today an editorial proposing "to abolish in one sweep the expense, nuisance, and nonsense of Graduation week." "Of all the claptrap and useless fixtures of college life, Commencement Is one of the principal ab surdities," Editor John Hutchison said. Declaring that Commencement serves no purpose other than to burden the student with several extra days of tiresome program, cap- and-gown discomfort, and board license law, traffic officers were unanimous In the opinion that young people arc better drivers than old.

These rooms are papered in colonial paper and have hardwood floors and all of them op:n into a long hill. The kitchen and adjoining breakfast room are plastered and have Inlaid linoleum on the floors. .Especially attractive are the built-in cabinets, with glass doors and the archway between the two rooms; The kitchen, which --also has a broom closet, opens onto an enclosed sun porch which also has oak floors. The bathroom Is also smooth plastered and has inlaid linoleum. All of the rooms of the house, except the guest bedroom, have exposures to the south winds, the second bedroom having been extended east so ns to have this'ex- posure. The colonial trend was used throughout the house in the wall paper, the small paned windows and the arch\vays. This same scheme Is being ussd by the Boyds in their furnishings. Q. Our house Isn't very old, but the putty is all falling out of the panes In our kitchen door. Should tills BO like that? '''A. The glass lir-in door should not be held In by putty; wood beads should be used. .Have .a carpenter replace the putty with such bends. ' • " Q. I have a four-room bungalow, and It Is now heated by a stove set In the living room. Bui tills docs'not heat the two bedrooms or .the bath enough. Isn't there some sort of stove I can put In that; will carry hent to those rooms? : A. Yes; there arc_ a number of types of .heaters .you may Install. The simplest and least expensive would be n. circulating warm-air unit heater that looks something like n radio cabinet and sets up a circulation by drawing air In at the bottom and expelling it at the lop. To' get 'the benefit of this In the other rooms, the doors must be open or transoms built In. over '.lie doors. This latter expedient '.s .the more effective, as it allows the layer of air near the celling 'inc. which is the hottest, to qs- capc from the living' room and tnter the other. rooms. To have this scheme work'j;ffeetlvely, the bottoms of the.doors should bo cut off to allow about an inch of space-for tlie cooled air to flow back. Another type Is a hot-water circulating system using 1-2-Inch copper tubing for water piping. A small pump forces the water to circulate rapidly, which compensates for the small area of the piping, nils tubing can be rur easlly over the celling lo the radiators and back under the floor The tubing should be well insti- latcrl to cut down heat losses to a minimum. These two system; offer probably lhc best solutions of your problem. Darker Floor Looks Best in Average Room In. a dining room where a rug is not used the floor requires more than ordinary attention, it should be maintained with as few marks and scratches ns possible. If the floor is stained and varnished, a dark tone is preferable. If paint is to be the finish, nny very aark shade that will harmonize with the general color scheme may be chosen. Dark green, red. or terra cotta are. effective colors for the dining room. Painting and decorating may be done through credit advanced by private financial Institutions Insured by the Federal Hoxtsing Administration. E. Cc Robinson Lumber Co. COAL Per 1000 Lbs.
