The state Forestry and Parks Commission Nursery this year expects to again equal last year's production of 26 million pine seedlings...A.' T. Esgate, production credit commissioner in the Department of Agriculture says the goal know just how Washington selects those counties to get relief. Charges of politics have been hurled at the Eisenhower'Adminis- tration in Its handling of the program, but the President scoffs at those reports. Sixty counties in Arkansas have been declared eligible for relief. But the state Production and Marketing; Administration says no official word has been received from the Agriculture Department on 25 of the counties. This causes a hardship because those counties have put in their orders for wheat, oats, cottonseed pellets, etc., and the PMA says it can't accept the orders until the official word comes down. ••• The PMA says estimates from the original 35 counties eligible under the program indicate a need for 6,625 tons of cottonseed meal; 1.805 tons of cottonseed pellets; 337.511 bushels of corns; 39,283 bushels of wheat; and 173,235 bushels of oats. Orders from 12 counties have been placed by the state office with the teommoclity Credit Corporation for ^87 tons of cottonseed meal, 124 tons of cottonseed pellets, eight carloads of corn and 11 carloads of oats.

"Tommy, stop that!" exclaimed his mother. "I'm going to whip you if you do that again. You're rude." Whose manners were showing? Tommy could have been doing one of a dozen of his every day activities. He may have slammed a door, interrupted someone who was talking, thrown a book, or he may have been en tins greedily or pulling at his mother's skirt. Teaching pleasing manners Is an endless task. It is practicing courtesy, which takes kindness, thoughtfulness, sympathy, .unending patience nacl cooperation. Satisfying manners are a form of behavior or action with plenty of added unselfishness. A two-year-old cannot be expected to understand nor to follow the rules of etiquette that a seven-year- old can. The ten or twelve-year-old has many things to learn as does the teenager. So. mother and dad set the pare. Adults who think first and foremost of themselves fail to portray unselfishness and consider- \ a tion fo rthe other person. How, then, are the children to learn? Children must obey parents, of cowve. but if the parents remember to say "" and "thank you" and ::I'm sorry" when they have bnen unfair, and ar.tonlly mean what they say, the child will think, 'Manners are impurtant and they're nice when others use them on you." Everyone admires a well-mannered person, regardless of age. It is never too early to start observing and teaching understanding and not absorb them. drcn emotional security.
