COURIER N T EW8 FRIDAY, 10, 1158 REVIEW AND FORECAST Schools for Ginners Planne Planting Schedules Delayed By HAROLD HART LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Gin schools -for cotton ginnen,. A step forward is being made in getting high quality cotton. Cotton merchants have long harped on that subject. They say — and logically so — that the cleaner the cotton the more the mills will pay for it. Now comes various gin equipment manufacturers sponsoring schools for ginners. The courses will cover gin stands, cleaning and drying equipment and lint cleaners. The four 2-day schools In Memphis are, set for April 20:21, April 23-23, April 24-25, and April 27-28. Too Much Rain Last year U was too little rain. Now it is too much rain, at least from the standpoint of farmers 4-H Club Plan Successful In India Group Growing Rapidly after Only One Year By SELIG S. HARRISON BHADSON, North India M— At the 4-H Club youth camp near St. Joseph, Mo., they had no idea what they were starting when 21 touring Indian farm leaders paid a visit one day last September. One of the Indian agricultural experts, 34-year-old Amrik Singh, decided then and there that organizing young farmers along 4-H Club lines could change the face of the Impoverished Indian countryside and end recurrent famine. "I had heard about the farm youth programs in America, but seeing something in action makes ill the difference," Singh declared. Less than six months after his return from the Ford Foundation- sponsored tour of the United States and Japan, Singh has helped organize 24 young farmer clubs with 300 members. He has even staged his first annual demonstration teach better farming camp to methods. Increase Yields Now other young farmer groups are springing up in the South Indian state of Mysore and in areas across the coun- scattered try. Bhadson is one of the most successful model extension projects in India after slightly less than a year in operation. Village-level extension workers show peasants how improved seeds, fertilizers, and farming methods can increase crop yields. Through simple sanitation reforms such as filling stagnant ponds, they can quickly demonstrate better health possibilities. Healthy poultry stock drawn from breeds expensive in India such as leghorns or Rhode Islands prove especially popular as youth projects. Poultry breeding is not widespread at present in Indian villages and could materially help ease food scarcities. Communist strength has mounted throughout other regions of this strategic frontier state, the Patiala and East Punjab States Union. But in the Bhadson area the political winds have now shifted in favor of democratic groups. Altogether the Ford Foundation aids 15 extension projects similar to Bhadson and 34 village workers training schools. being unable to get in their fields In the first of the 1953 growlni season crop reports, the Federal State Crop Reporting Service eal a period of clear, dry weather i needed for farmers to catch ui with their field work. But the adequate moisture ha: helped in other ways. The rain and mild weather have resulted In rapid growth. Wheat, oats and ry especially are well advanced early in the season. Farmers who can get into their fields are quickly preparing the land for cotion plantings. This work is progressing rapidly in St Francis County, and fair progress is reported from some northeastern and southern counties. As a whole however, land preparation is behind schedule. Large scale planting of cotton is expected to starl about April 15-20. Vetch and wild peas have made good growth and are ready to be turned under. Most of the Lespedeza has been seeded and much is approaching a good stand. Seedbeds are being readied for rice and soybeans. Small amounts ol those crops have been planted.

Many of us are not aware of the chance we take by going through Venezuela, with a population of 5.000,000, is the best customer of the United States In Latin America. life weighing more than is good for us. The life insurance companies report that seriously overweigh persons are much more likely to get diabetes or heart disease or to die before their time. It should be made plain, however, that the group method of weight control is no cure-all. It does not always work. It does not help everyone lose weight. It is fairly new and we still have a lot to learn about losing weight together. However, It is safe and perhaps it will work for you. Why People Gain Weight If one is on the too heavy Bide, don't blarne fate or your family tree. Chances are nine out of ten It is the food you eat. Overweight is one of the big nutritional prob- ems today. It affects an estimated one-fourth of the adu^ population. There is an ol dsaying — "A ean horse for a long race." That could well apply to people. People of average weight tend to live onger and feel better than those who are overweight. People over 30 are more apt to be overweight than underweight. There is a natural tendency to gain between 10 and 20 pounds Between your 30th and 40th year, and to gain more about 50. Much of the increase in weight results because people take less exercise and continue to eat as when they were active^ When a person develops a tendency toward overweight, he will )robably always have to watch his condition. Once you reach average weight, the secret is to eat just enough to maintain It. To ose weight a person must want o be thin. There are three main reasons or overweight — (1) eating too much, (21 not enough exercise, and (3) abnormal glands. Good Diet A good diet is the best solution o losing weight. Be sure to eat he Basic Seven Foods every day. Eat something every meal. Don't skip breakfast. Some folks kip meals but eat a candy bar nd drink a carbonated beverage instead. These furnish as many calories ns a well balanced meal but not the essential foods. Don't get off on fad diets- Take a moderate amount of exercise while you reduce. It takes a lot of exercise to lose just little weight. Double Meaning STAMPS, Ark. (IP) — Rural Mail Carrier John L.

Despite this, corn production has been on the upgrade, reaching about 100 million tons in 1948. The yield in bushels per planted acre has also increased, reaching a high of 40 bushels per acre In 1946. Largely responsible for this increase has been the use ot hybrid seed and a greater utilization of mechanical equipment. Data from U. S. Department of Agriculture.
