WEDNESDAY, MAKCH 23, 19B5 BLTTHEVltLE (ARK.) COURIER TOWS PAOB THKE8 Hunger, Discontent Plague Red China's Farmers, Woman Says By FRED HAMI'SON ' HONG KONG (AP) — The wife of a Chinese cook has come back to Hong Kong from a visit to her family village in Red China 30 miles upriver from the Kukien coast. This is her account of farm life | in RecJ China. : The small lanner and laborer gets hajf an ounce of cooking; oil' a month against normal consumption of eight ounces. He gets one catty (1 1-3 pounds) of rice a day against normal consumption of l',2- He's allowed eight ounces of meat if he can find it. When hogs are butchered, soldiers and government workers are first served. Fanners cannot use their own rice or hogs as they please. They must sell to the government monopoly and buy back as they need. There is a .supply of fish about one third of the time. Soldiers and government workers always get theirs first. Cotton padding is almost, nonexistent. This is important, for pool' Chinese cope with cold weather by padding their clothing' and blankets. The cook's wife took her own padded cotton blanket to Fukien from Hong Kong. On'the return trip it was confiscated at Canton because the "people's government does not permit the export of padded bed clothing." Are people hungry? Everybody is a little bit hungry all the time, she said. One doesn't starve but he never gets enough. IK there open discontent? More than you would think. Small villagers complain to each other but they are careful. Law and. order is rigid and there is no stealing. A man caught stealing is made to stand on public display in the village center for a day or two. Pugwash Natives In a Tizzy About 'Home for Thinkers LITTLE LIZ— Next summer's bothing suits will probably show that the winter left a (ot ol people in bad shape. DYESS NEWS. By Mrs. J. L. Jacobs By RAE Canadian Press Staff Writer PUGWASH. N.S. WJ—Old-timer Charlie Teed, 88, knows Cyrus Eaton about as well as anyone else in Pugwash but the Cleveland millionaire's plan to open a "home for thinkers" here hns him puzzled. Other lolks in mis village share Charlie's puzzlement. The 500-odd villagers devote much of their time to loading lumber on foreign vessels or lobster fishing. Eaton plans to turn his 15-room summer home here into a thinking haven for Canadian, American and British scholars. The first guests, to be nominated by universities, are scheduled to move in this summer. The first year will be experimental. Remembers Family Teed remembers "Cy" Eaton as a boy when Joe Eaton's family was struggling to make a living at Pugwash Junction, six miles from here. Joe ran a general store and farmed. « "Cy used to be a quiet sort: didn't seem to go oui much," Teed said. "But I remember his pa sayin' there WHS nobody as trust- worthy as Cy." On the question of the "home for thinkers," Charlie just fingered his bushy while mustache and looked bemused. Joe O'Coimor, a 38-year-old lumber inspector, and Mrs. Edgar Gayton, who helps operate a tea room, agreed that Eaton's plan would be a success if it makes Pugwash a bigger spot on the map. Pa,.erhanger Angus Jamicson is a mile skeptic. He gazed at the knot of men sharing the warmth of the barber shop's coal stove and commented: "Looks to me as if Pugwash has enough thinkers already."

'.?'—A lion escaped in the City Auditorium ycs- llerday but some 3,000 spectators 'watching Ihe Gil Gray Circus in the same building were unaware it WHS loose. The 250-pound lion pushed open a fire door and jumped iilto an alley. It roamed about three blocks eluding pursuing circus workers. Finally the 3M>-year-old animal, known as Goofus, was cornered in a warehouse. His love for chicken was his undoing.

You can stop faster, even in the rain, on concrete. That's because concrete's gritty surface provides uniformly high skid resistance, wet or dry: Besides permitting better vehicle control, concrete makes night driving safer too! Its light-colored surface reflects up to four times more light than dark-colored pavements. You sec farther and have more time to slow down or stop: Concrete roads also are safer because they're free from hazardous ruts, washboard wrinkles and raveled edges. It's worth remembering that when the weather is rough you'rt much safer on concrete, the skid-resistant safety pavcmcnu Arkansas' important arterial route, U. S.
