Prierson jr., president, of Ihe Younji Men's Civic club. The property, lying between Pine Hill cemetery and the Hoy Seoul grounds, already has been acquired and will be deeded to the city of Jonesboro and controlled by trustees for public use and benefits. A "biiy-an-acre" drive will be launched by the • Young Men's Civic club in the near future lo provide funds for a substantial payment on Ihe purchase price. Mr. Pi'ierton said. The young men's organization hoiws to have the propjrty entirely free of debt within three or four |, years. Beautiful Trad .The tract.-one of the most beautiful plots of land in northeast Arkansas—was acquired for slightly less Ulan five dollars an acre b} truslees who. will deed it to the cily of Jonesboro. The young men's club lias to assume responsibility for paying for She park and forest reserve and will seek the assistance other citizens toward providing facilities long needed .by'jmiesboro arid Craigliead county. Returns from cleared land and timber on the tract will within a few years, greatly exceed the purchase price, according lo engineers and forestry experts who have surveyed 11. and will make possible great improvements within a short time. 400 Aeres in Trees Acquisition of Hie park nnrt forest reserve will make available to citizens of Jonesboro and vicinity a recreational site of unusual beauty and accessibility which .will be increasingly valuable in years to come. About 400 ot Hie ei2 acres are heavily wooded with pine and hardwoods. A project already has baen arranged calling for improvement of the timber stand by the stale forestry service—the setting out of 80 acres of black locusts, the construction of wood trails, and pro- leclion of the entire tract from fire. ,: Lake Is I'orsiblc The reforestation project calls for 1 the planting'of many walnut | iyn-. and tiilip-noplnr also. These ^J^.'ojects will afford an outstanding example of forest treatment and iianagement, aiding in the rcestab- lishmenl and retention ct lumber indirslries in this section of the state. Higginbolham creek runs through Ihe tract and there is an excellent site for construction of a dam which would create a fine lake for swimming and boating. Ah excellent house is located on the Iract with a deep well with a motor pump and good [arm buildings. The farm land is now being operated and would yield a substantial income to be devoted to improvements or toward payment of Ihe purchase price. Excellent prospects from a substantial income from forestry operations arc indicated by" government figures on black locust cultivation. These figures show that an average profit of ten dollars ]:cr acre per year is derived from black locust cultivation, with th first cutting in 15 to 20 years.

If planted in rows 22 indies to 21 inches apart, a multiple row cultivator should be used, giving the beans at least two cultivations. All .shovels should be of the duck-fool and knife type, .set to run very shallow. if seeded solid with the grain drill, then Ihe first cultivation should come as the third jet of leaves is opening. A light, splke- tootlied harrow (set straight), a rotary hoe, or a weecler may be used for tillage. The cultivations should never be .started except after ten In the morning on a bright day, and the rows should be worked cross-wise. A team or light tr.ictor may be used for power. The second cross-cultivation of solid plantings should follow in a week or ten days, dcpcnd- ing on weather conditions. This attended Mississippi state college at Hlarkville.
