ITUESDAY, MAY,2,1944 BLYTHEVILLE (AUK.) COURIER NEVVS BETTER HOMES Ijarm Building Repairs Vital Inadequate Shelter For Stock and Crops Hurts Food Program 'f-Nltie out of every ten American farms have buildings which should lie repaired al once if agriculture Is (o hold up its end of tlie food J production program according to' 1 prominent farm structures author- [[lles, The maintenance mul repair | of farm buildings, they report, Is of tlie most serious problems | lacing farmers today. A federal survey made ten years I ago Indicated that new service I buildings were needed on more than I two million farms. Since that time, [repair and new construction have I failed to keep pace with detcribra- 1 .Ion, To remedy this situation, fanti- |:rs are urged to restore buildings l:o such a state of repair that they I will provide adequate storage for props and proper shelter for poul- I'.i'y, live stock and machinery. I One obstacle in tlie way of this I joal is the shortage of lumber and I iomc other materials. Buildings au- |:lioritics, however, point out that I:hcre are non-critical materials' I ivatlable which arc well suited for \ 1 'arm construction. Among them I lire the various asbestos cemcnU I iroducls, which even before the war I lad proved their worth on the 1 'arm. The asbestos products Include i,|fctalos board, shingles and std- rn£;. The board is a versatile malarial which comes in large sheets. I't is used as a structural-material In the building of small shelters. lor sheathing inside and out, for partitions and ceilings, for siding, Imd for roofing small buildings. I \sbestos shingles ami sidings, being liotb fireproof and durable, provide Inilcrior protection that is both rompleie and practically .maintcn- lincc free. In the interest of greater food I (reduction, the asbestos industry lias just published a 24-page booklet, Build It With Asbestos," which I (escribes how these materials mny [ic used on the farm. A copy will he sent free to any farmer writing Ihe Asbestos Farm Service Bureau, 121 North LaSalle Street, Chicago •III. Dwarf Fruit Trees Are Decorative and Productive Dealer-Built Farm Shelters Aid Production The prcfabrlcallon of portable farm slrudure.s by building male- rials dealers has been greatly stimulated by Ihe shortage of farm help, according to leaders in the field. Increased production goals liavfi expanded the need for new farm shelters. Uealizlng that many (armors are loo busy to put up their own buildings, the dealers have taken over Ihe Job. As a result, (armors are now able lo order ready-built brooder houses, farrowing houses and other small slruo lures as easily ns they would a bag )f feed. The buildings nro constructed according to plans nnd specifications drawn up by the agricultural experts of various building materials manufacturers. Quantity production methods keep down the costs and good workmanship assures satisfactory results. These shelters are built largely from non-critical materials. One material widely used is asbestos cement board, it is a fireproof product made from asbestos fibers and Portland cement, formed Into dense sheets under great pressure. Because of this mineral composition it cannot burn, rot, decay, corrodo or be eaten by rodents or termites Homes Undergo Improvements And Repairs . Several Hlylhcvllle homes arc undergolnR improvnnenls and repairs this week. Among (hem Is (lit) E. P. Dorum home, 1022 West Holly, which Is being rcfiiilshed on (ha exterior with asbestos shingles.

' Espalier trees, which grow like vines along walls, will bear larger fruit than standard orchard trees due to greater sun exposure penetrating through the branches. Because trunks of Espalier fruit trees seldom exceed six inches, and the branches are sinnll, most of Ihe strength of the tree goes into tho fruit. Fruit men declare that products from these trees have a finer texture an ( i are juicer than fruit from orchard trees. The variety of designs in which Espaliers can be trained is Unlimited. T-shapcs, U- shapes, palmettos, candelabra, horizontal and vertical cordons pyramids and many other IntQrcsliiiE designs can be worked out to fit any space in your ynrd.
