FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1955 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN RE1/IEW "o FORECAST Farmers Union Asks Water Law Riparian Rights Seen as Only Acceptable Device LITTLE ROCK — The Arkansas Legislature has been asked to pass some sort of water rights legislation to enable farmers of this state to participate in the benefits of the Pope-Jones Act. J. Albert Hopkins, president of the Arkansas Farmers Union, said the executive board of his organization had made the request. "Most farmers will be unable to participate in the principal benefits of the Pope-Jones Water Facilities Act Which the Arkansas Congressional Delegation was so instrumental in adapting to the agriculture of this state, unless we have a state water rights taw," the Farmers Union president said. "The riparian rights doctrine, inherited from English common law, is the only guide in the state," he said. "Arkansas law and court decisions provide no means by which an individual can obtain a legal, dependable right to the use of any definite amount of water from a surface source, "Such a right is essential to University of Arkansas Gets Grant to Study Fertilizers FAYETTEVILLE — The University of Arkansas' Agriculture Experiment Station has just received a grant of $5,000 from the Olln Malhleson Chemical Corporation to sound development of agricultural Irrigation, municipal and Industrial water supplies and the propagation and protection of wild life. "Only applicants who can install facilities for storing flood water, or those who a,re financially able to take the risk of being enjoined from diverting water have much chance of obtaining loans from the government under existing laws. For all practical purposes, this eliminates the family type farmer from these benefits." Mr. Hopkins said that a two-year delay in adopting water rights legislation might result In permanent loss to Arkansas farmers of any opportunity to obtain government loans for irrigation facilities. "We urge this session of the legislature to adopt fair and equitable water rights legislation which will correct the existing uncertainties and establish a constitutionally sound procedure under which all users of water for beneficial purposes may obtain legal dependable rights to water within the limits of the available supplies," he said.

Something to Think About By GERTRUDE B. flOLIMAN Cowity Home Demonitratloa Afent 4-H Home Management is one of the projects the 4-H girls take. This includes how things are done at home to be more efficient and be able to help their mothers more. Right now the girls are planning jobs they can do to help get breakfast ready so each member of the family will have time to eat a good wholesome meal before going to school or to work. Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day this Is very important. In addition to helping plan and cook the meal the girls were trying to think of the things they could do the night before. Setting the table was suggested but some homes have mice, so getting rid of the mice became one of their projects. New Process Added to the list of frozen foods is a new process which combines freezing and drying, or dehydrating. Six commercial firms already have started the process, developed at the U.S.D.A, western regional laboratory at Alban. Calif. The official name of the new process Is "dehydrofreezing," and up to now, dehydrofrozen apples, apricots, peas nnd pimientos have reached markets serving large scale food users. Later, it is planned to put the dehydrofrozen foods into smaller packages for home use. It is claimed that the combination of freezing and partial dehydration offers several advantages j over the more conventional meth- : ods of food preparation. Fruits and vegetables with moisture removed weigh less and also take less space. In addition, it is claimed that flavor and texture are better. It is known that ordinary freezing, due to formation of ice crystals, damages the cellular structure of many fruits and vegetables. By partial dehydration, .the cells stand up better when frozen.

Over the state of Arkansas this is the question many of you rural leaders are asking, "Then they are really taking action through the Arkansas Rural Community Improvement Program." They point out that a community that is growing and improving is a reflection of the progressive people who live in the community. It means that you are working for better farms and better homes. It means that you have a desire and pride for developing a richer life through your own cooperative efforts in all phases of community activities. This is really what RCIP means — a Rural Community Improvement Program, Usually it is centered around three phases — improvement of the community in which you live. This combination makes a rural community improvement program. Teh County Extension Agents suggest about six specific methods on how interested communities may start a rural community Improvement program. A long-time lervder of the com-: munity may take a tour. A newcomer — an ambitious person — may move into the community and take the lead. A former resident of the .community who has lived in an im- roved community group returns as a permanent resident and wants to take action. The clergymen or school leaders may show a real interest. An organization may take the .ead with its sponsorship. The county agent and home agent may make personal visits to community leaders. Visitors Visitors are welcome any time at home demonstration clubs. Here is the schedule: First Week Monday, Go,snel]. Tuesday. Lone Oak. Wednesday, Lost Cane. Thursday, Armorel.
