FRIDAY, MARCH », 19M BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAOTKIMl REV IEW *« FORECAST Former Resident Invents Guage For College Use JONBSBORO—-A new type gross * xroce measurment—a drawbar dynamometer—has beenJnvented by »n Arkansas State College senior formerly from Blytheville who' is maiorini in agricultural engineering. The Instrument, Invented by Edward H. Davis Jr., a graduate of BlythcviHe High School aHa"~ •living in jonesboro, ii designed to measure the draft of tillage .tools and the draw bar pull of farm tra- otor«. It also may be used for numerous other tests. In the past, machines for measuring these forces have been too expensive and cumbersome. But Davie's instrument weighs less than 15 pounds and i* easily carried by t lingl* person. Collere to Use It Herman T. Williams, professor of agricultural engineering at ASC, «aid the device will be used by his department in various research project*. "The instrument will give students experience with the new adaptable method of stress analysis," Williams said. "In addition, it will be a valuable teaching aid in demonstrating the additional pull needed for poorly adjusted and improperly maintained tillage tools." The invention reveals the tractor power loss due to wear, low- grade fuel and Improper engine adjustment, Williams added., Two Parts The dynamometer, Davis explai- ed has two parts. It consists of an amplifier, which is contained in a small aluminum case with dials and switehM on the outside for easy reading, and a double beam strain unit which Is connected to plifer by an electric cable. Davis said the instrument Is activated by an unbalance of a wheat- stone bridge circuit made up of a CB-7 strain gauges attached to the dauble beam strain unit. This unit 1* balance against known resistance in the amplifying unit and the result in microa- mperes IB Interpolated ia give the pounds of force. Thus the amplifer may- be read remotely or mounted upon the machine which is being-tested. In addition, a movie camera may be mounted to take pictures of the panel for a continuous record of the instrument readings. The capacity of the dynamomel ranges up to 7,500 pounds. This ample to take care of farm tracton which average from 1,500 to 4,r" pounds draw bar pull. Davis said that the parts for the instrument cost less than 50 as compared to hundreds of dollars for similiar equipment used before.

Some of the leaders are meeting each week with the 4-Hers but some have two meetings a week—one for girls 14 years and over and another one for girls 13 years and under. Some leaders travel as far as five or six miles to attend these meetings. Junior 4-H Leaders Two Junior 4-H leaders, Elizabeth Brister of Yarbro and Ollda Kay Johnson of Leachville, both outstanding 4-Hers, are exercising their leadership abilities and knowledge of clothing by helping younger 4-H members on their clothing projects These girls meet regularly each week to assist the younger members. New Look In Cottons Now' new, but pyramiding into first position in piece j goods are wash and wear cottons. Newest among the wash and wear cottons are smooth ones. There are many others such as embossed types, plisses, seersucker, and crinkles of various kinds. Many of these should not be ironed at all. Some can't stand the tumble dryers and must be drip-dried. Cotton satins, plain and printed, have come into prominence for spring. Fancy ginghams, overstrip- ed and overplaided with satin sometimes are available. The jacquard brocades in cottons are heavy enough for suits and slim street dresses. There is also a large group of alluring sheer cottons, in- eluding embroidered organdies, dotted Swisses, printed voiles, cotton laces and muslins. Cottons have taken wholeheartedly to metallic printed orienta designs and patterns with lots o novelty skirtings for slim, straight full and circular styles. Tissue weight plaided madras i: also an interesting fabric for blouses this season. You will see a littl' less of the 'tweeds in cottons since this idea has slipped over to blends Blends are the big textile news of the year. Natural fiber blends a: well as blends of natural and synthetic fibers are making fashion news. Silk and cotton mixtures are fas becoming competitive with all silt. G/nners Convent/on fo Stress Cotton Quality 'Quality Cotton Sells" is the theme of the annual convention of the Arkansas-Missouri Dinners Association, W. H. Haslauer, East Prairie. Mo., president of the Association, said today. Pressure from competing manmade fibers has created many new problems for the cotton industry and especially the gtaners since the ginning operations can alter the inherent qualities of the fiber, Mr. Haslauer said. Greater care in ginning and the revision of some of the time-honored customs of handling, marketing and pricing are points to be reviewed in the educational programs of the convention, Haslauer continued. •The ATTEND TRACTOR SCHOOL — These 60 youngsters attended the second annual 4-H tractor maintenance school, host for which was Miss- co Implement Co., this year.

Second session will be Tuesday March 13 at 7 p.m. at Delta Implement Co. fabrics since the more body than mixtures have all silk fabric Linen figures significantly in blends with cotton, wool, and rayon. Spring woolens are very light in weight. Linens score high in the fabrics for the spring and summer season. There is more and more tendency to use linens and cottons the year round. 'Patterned effects in linens not only involves prints but also jac- cmards. Tweeds, plaids and polka dots can be found among the collections of linens. In styling, the linen look runs through everything — silks, wools, rayons and cottons. This is a season notable for novelties with a different look. Printed cottons Will have the textured look in a variety-of fabrics from sheers to heavy rustic types. Tomato Research The home gardener may be interested in tomato pruning research recently released by the University of Arkansas college of Agriculture. The experimental work was started in 1955. One part of the experiment was to study pruning methods in relation to yield and grade. "The pruning treatments showed that the un- pruned plots significantly outyield- ed all other treatments m U. b. No 1 fruits during the season. The total yield of early marketable fruits was also greatest from the unpruned plants. Cracking was serious during 1955, md'was the major factor contributing to the number of fruits clas-, sified as culls. Growth cracks in-j creased as the severity of pruning' increased. This accounted for the low yield of marketable fruits m the one-stem pruning treatment.
