A new corporation, Mississippi Industries, Inc., is developing new industries in Mississippi and creating more jobs chiefly by using Mississippi raw materials, Mississippi labor, Mississippi financing and Mississippi management. The corporation works with local communities who want new industries and have raw materials which can be converted into marketable products. Already the corporation has developed or acquired seven industries in the state. Warren Hood, president, said other enterprises will be announced soon. Mississippi Industries, Inc., is now manufacturing or preparing to manufacture roof deck material, roofing, tile, brick, charcoal, pallets, household fertilizer, ethical phar maceuticals, butane and gasoline tanks. Mr. Hood, with other partners, also operates lumber mills, a wood preserving plant, and plants making cartons, bags, and corrugated containers.

Governor Ross Barnett recently cited Mr. Hood in a public statement for "distinguished service" to the state's industrial development. Former Governor White said Mississippians must plan to develop "our own industries" as well as seek outside industry. OUTDOOR TIPS Advertising is the good servant of those who know how to use it. Any community of individuals can get along if it has some unselfish leaders. (From The Ancient Age Sportsman's Idea Exchange) FISHING Bait fishermen are fond of the popular night crawler. The ways to catch this king-sized worm are many. However, af ter the night crawler has been induced to come up out of his hole, most anglers employ the nroK-a ntfUhAM mthnr!nnrl miss a lot of worms. Here's better way: Build yourself this sim pie worm catching device. On the end of an old broom handle attach a piece of wood V& inch thick, one inch wide and three inches long. To this tack a piece of coarse sand paper. When you spot your worm, pin him to the ground. The sand paper will hold him without damaging him. HUNTING Here's a tip for dove hunters who need more doves to shoot at. When you spot a mess of doves in a field go hide yourself in the nearest woods or other cover. Then, give a few blasts on your crow call. This will spook the doves and they will make for nearby cover namely you. If, for some reason, this does not work out, there's always the chance you'll get some crow shooting. One problem that belongs to duck hunters is the transportation of all that duck-hunting gear to and from the marshes, potholes and so on. The answer is as simple as it i s ancient. Instead lugging around one big sack of decoys, put the decoys in two smaller bags. Tie the i bags together and swing over your shoulder. They will balance out and leave both' your hands free to carry other things. BOATING When you are on an outboard camping trip or you're forced Elzzy Ezzi IbwCTprcs To DdJ Cbrccd Viz?! h Stal o Jay Hanna Dean, better known to millions of baseball fens as "Ole Diz", announced today that Dizzy Dean Enterprises, Inc., of which he is Vice-President, will build a $350,000 charcoal briquet plant at Pachuta, Mississippi. Construction will start immediately after the passage of $150,-000 BAWI bond issue for the construction of the buildings and kilns. Dizzy Dean Enterprises is a subsidiary of Mississippi Industries, Inc. Warren Hood of Jackson is president of both companies, and W. A. Roper is General Manager of the charcoal briquet operation. Dean said that the new industry, first for Pachuta, would be in operation shortly after January 1, 1962. When in full operation the plant will produce 10,000 tons of charcoal briquets annually and will provide direct and indirect em ployment for over one hundred people. Dean pointed out that the company will use over $200,000 worth of hardwood timber annually when in full production. The type of hardwoods used in making charcoal briquets is now considered by timber growers as "waste" timber. "Ole Diz", a native Arkansan, has adopted Mississippi as his "second home." His wife, Pat, is from Bond, Mississippi, where the Deans now have a home and where he spends much of his time during the off-season from his television show. He has long been recognized as one of Mississippi's top boosters and was recently honored by the State Junior Chamber of Commerce, and Governor Ross Barnett who proclaimed a "Dizzy Dean Day", for his many favorable comments about Mississippi during his nation-wide TV show. Dizzy Dean Enterprises, one of eight Mississippi Industries subsidiaries, was organized early this year. President Hood announced that at a latter date, in addition to charcoal briquets, the company will market other items in the outdoor cooking line. Other Mil subsidiaries include Atlas Roofing Company at Meridian, Atlas Tile and Brick Company at Shuqualak, Atlas Tank Manufacturing Company at Vicks-burg, AMID Laboratories and Max Muller And Company at Jackson, Fireproof Products Company at Terry, and Morton Manufacturing Company at Morton. to pull in to shore because of rough weather, a fire becomes important for warmth and cooking.
