Soil Testing Just like farming, this Is about the only good weather we have had alt year to Uke soil samples If we get a good analysis, soil samples must be token when the land Js dr.v enough to plow.

Windbreaks If you appreciate the shelterbelts in lhe Manila-Leachville area as touch as I do, some of you farmers should put in your order now for black locust seedlings and ask for them to be delivered next March Since we have bought the Arkansas Forrestry Commission out or black locust seedlings every year since I have been here, I think It Is advisable to order now rather than next Spring.

Farmers are reporting to me unusually high yields on carls- maturing varieties such as Wabash and S-IOO. I have heard of yields from 23 to 40 bushels per acre.

We take this opportunity to let the readers of this column know of the great work being done by Miss Minnie Foster of Yarbro. The Yarbro Club is doing outstanding project work as well as many community activities which directly reflect the influence of this fine leader. "Miss Foster, your work has not gone unnoticed."

The warning came from William <J. Rogers, regional director of th Wage and Hour and Public Cou .tracts Divisions of the U.S. Depart ment of Labor here. Mr. Rogers reminded cotton farmers of the child labor provisions which Congress wrote into the P.ilr Labor Standards Act year enforcement of which falls the u S Department of Labor. His warning came as a result of calls and comments concerning the child-labor provisions and he indicated that he had directed federal investigators to look into the chtld labor situation in various Paris of five-state region covered by his division. • . Musi Be Over 16 The amended laws make it unlawful to employ children under 16 years of age In agriculture during school hours. By "school hours" i meant hours when school is in session for the district where the child under 16 is currently living. Before this time a good many such children, of both domestic and alien parents, have been used in the cotton fields In various sections of the cotton belt, according to reports. In West Texas, several mass meetings of fanners has been held in order to consider the new outlook with reference to youthful cotton ferent' fields after this. Grease Monkey Did you know the engine of your car and tractor has a nose? 'The little gimmick that you remove when adding a quart of oil is called the "breather cap" and is in-reality the nose of the motor. When we were kids, our mothers continually reminded us to' « alch our noses, fo I am reminding you to service those breather caps at regular intervals. Wash the gadget in clean motor oil or kerosene and the result will be less wear on valves and pistons and less clutch slippage. -• > KENTUCKY WH1SKEY-A BLEND. •». 70% fni a ntulnl iplriti.
