W. C. Ei BUSH, Mgr. 30 East State Street --Austin Homesteads, Inc.--will be Homesteads corporation, through established by Federal Subsistence which the division functions, and a loan of $125,000 will he made to finance purchase of land now under option and construction of small low cost houses. Vary in Character. Projects being established by the division vary in character, each being aimed to demonstrate some phase of the possibilities of subsistence homesteading. The Austin project is aimed to demonstrate the possibilities of workers in the low wage groups achieving a higher standard of living by producing in their gardens food-stuffs which they are unable to buy in abundance, thus releasing portions of their income for the purchase of other foods and goods which they now cannot afford to acquire. Austin is a city of approximately 12,000 population with an example of decentralized industry--a_ packing plant where some of the occupants of the homesteads will be employed. There is a shortage of well built, low cost houses there compared with existing needs. The occupants of the homesteads will be chosen from workers who came from the farms. Schools and Churches. Schools, churches and recreational Institutions are easily available to the site of the development. City water find gas are available, as well as electricity from a power line. The farm land selected for the development adjoins a gravel road and Is one half mile from concrete pavement. The local corporation will enter nto contract for deed with the lomcsteadera who will have 20 years to retire their obligation. The ;racts of land will vary from three to five acres depending upon the size of the families. The cost of the land avcrag-as $46.75 an acre. Approximately 40 acres will be set iside for community purposes, including an area for a park, a common pasture and for a wood lot. "This project is typical of hundreds of others which could he undertaken to the advantage of workers in small Industrial areas," Mr. Wilson said. "Workers now have shorter hours and they have the opportunity of making use of these for their own advantage. The advantages can be educational and can be those which will increase their material standard of living. Can Produce Things. "A worker with a small income who is unable to buy the things he needs can use his idle time to produce things which he can use and it will make it possibe for him to buy goods with his remaining funds which he certainly cannot now afford. "The worker in a small center such as this has the opportunity of making outstanding use of a small tract of land. In the first place, he has some of the advantages of a farmer without being in commercial farming and, at the same time, he has the advantages of living in a community and of obtaining at low cost the facilities which a community can afford and which isolated settlers in open country cannot always achieve without heavy cost."

Child Can Be Trained to Higher Standards of Social Behavior By BROOKE PETERS CHURCH Ursula was a new girl in school ind consequently was looked upon askance by the entire class. She had to run the gantlet of criticism of her looks, her clothes, her manners, even of her home. The child took it in good part as part of her school experience, and to the amazement of everyone made no effort to counter-attack with personal remarks regarding her critics. Perhaps If she had it would have been easier for Ursula, for the criticisms hurt her and gave her a sense of hopeless inferiority which she could not express and which rankled in her mind. Boys find an outlet for outraged feelings in fisticuffs.and aoon reach a level of mutual respect and understanding. But with girls this is not the case, and the girl who has Been brought up to think personalities poor form is at a tremendous disadvantage, since she is deprived o f . a n y means of self-defense, and must slowly earn the respect and liking of her classmates by sheer worth. It would, of course, be inadvisable to train our girls to hand-to-hand fighting. And certainly the child who has learned to control her tongue and consider other people's feelings, is a long way ahead of the unsocial little creatures wo do not hesitate to bring out their comrades' tenderest point, and who pounce on any defect or weakness as a target for the barbs of their verbal weapons. But might it not "be possible to train the critics end raise them to higher standards of social behavior? It children were taught to use their imaginations and put themselves in the other fellow's place, there might he fewer aching little hearta among their better bred and therefore handicapped contemporaries. In his 43 years of service as a court reporter, Duncan C. McCallum of Oreoville, Cal., says he has transcribed more than 432,000,000 words. PHONE 2727 SHOP AT THE 123 NO.
