FRIDAY, AUGUST 14, 1958 State Officials Still In Fight for Full Drought Aid By HAROLD HART LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Gov. Cherry and »t»t« agricultural officials still may win their fight to get virtually all of Arkansas declared a drought disaster area. Twelve more Arkansas counties »re being considered for drought W^Hef. The counties are Sevier, Howard, Little River, Hempstead, Miller, Nevada, Ouachlta, Calhoun, Union, Cleveland, Bradley and Ashley. The state Production and Market- Ing Administration has forwarded — by request — information on the counties to the area PMA office at Washington. Pastures in those counties are Mississippian NamedbyDelta Implement Co. reported to bt considerably below normal despite recent showers. Should those counties be approv- Columbla and Lafayette would be left out of the fold. Rainy weather, Increased Infestation and weeds. They go hand in hand. Farmers are stepping up their use of chemicals to destroy the weeds and Insects. And such acceleration has Its attendant problems. The state Plant Board Is advising cotton farmers to take complaints against sprayers of 2,4-D week killer to sheriffs and if the sprayers [are violating Plant Board regula tlons. Paul Millar, chief Inspector lor the board, says complaints, have been received from east Arkansas cotton farmers. VI. g. Marble Louis G. Nash, manager of Delta Implements Company here, today announced the appointment of W. S. Marble as assistant manager of the farm implement firm. Mr. Marble, who comes to Blytheville from Greenville. Miss., has been associated with Delta Implements Inc., for n years. Tor the past two years he has served as assistant to the manager of Delta Implements sales and promotion operations. The farm Implement firm"-operates outlets here and in Mississippi. Mr. Marble is a veteran of four years service in World War II hav- ng served as a lieutenant colonel t the field artillery. Mr. Marble, his wife and two daughters, are making their home at 218 Walker Street. He says that Inspectors on several occasions have tound that damage has occurred because of violations of regulations governing use of the chemical. The weed killer will destroy broad leaf plants such as cotton, but will not harm narrow leaf plants such as, rice. Millar says that damage from airplane spraying has occurred In Arkansas and Prairie counties and damage from tractor-drawn equipment has been reportedin Prairie ment has been reported in Prairie, Cross, St. Francis and Lincoln counties. Federal Loons Available For Farm Developing Farmers in Mississippi County, who qualify, may now receive loan funds recently appropriated by Congress to buy, develop, improve or enlarge farms according to Mr. Dil- rnus H. Hearnsberger, County PHA Supervisor. These loans aid farmers to become established In an efficient and economic operation and serve as a way for a farmer to help himself. The serious droughts the last two years have caused farmers to do a lot of figuring about ways to farm more efficiently. Farm loans to enlarge existing farms and to make Improvements bl land clearing, constructing ponds for livestock water, which may later in some instances be used for irriga- fcon reservoirs,; build fences and to construct or repair buildings are now being made. n considerable number of farmers in Mississippi County have already used this loan service to make undersized and underdevelopec farms into efficient and productive farms. The loans which bear foui perecent interest are repayable at any time up to forty years. All applications for these loans are acted upon by a committee of three Mississippi Counry citizens. Mr. Alex Curtis of Manila , Is Chatrrnan of this Committee. Applications may be made at the Mississippi County PHA office which is located at the City Hall in Blythevllle, Arkansas. How are crops over the state looking? The Federal-State Crop Reporting Service says generally good. Ample soil moisture and clear, warm weather in the past week brought rapid development of crops, permitted cultivation and other field work.. However, there was further deterioration of crops and pastures in the dry areas In central and north central Arkansas. Cotton made rapid progress during the week and it Is putting on a good crop of bolls In mosl fields. Prospects for intermediate and late corn are good in all except the dry areas. The agency says much land is being prepared for the seeding of winter grains, mostiy oats and rice prospects continue promising. Early soybeans continue to make good growth where there is ample moisture. Farm, labor is In light demand except In the pea,ch areas where there wasn't enough labor to harvest the crop. The Elberta pvach larvest, however, is about over.

Young Farmer Gets Helping Hand CHOPTANK, Md. m - A small army of conservationists swarmed over the 113-acre farm of Norrls W. Coulbourne yesterday. They dug nearly four miles of ditches, built fences, cleared land, added a million-gallon pond and seeded new pastures.

Buying Men's Suits Has Its Tricks, Too In « man's suit construction Is complicated and much that affects wearing quality, appearance and ft is hidden. One of the first things to think about buying a suit is 'the outer clo'h—how it looks and feels, according to Home Demonstration Agent Gertrude B. Holiman. In Judging duality the consumer should be famiiar with the different types of coths and what kind of wear they are best suited for. It also helps to know whether matarials will stand up to heard wear, washing, dry cleaning. Which materials wrinkle least? Which hold press and are least likely to become shiny. Labels furnish only limited information, such as wool fiber content, kind of wool, and how much the suiting contains. The label will give precentage of fibers other than wool if present. Information on labels applies only to the outer cloth, specifically mentioned. Material! Are Foundation! Materials within a coat, called 'coat fronts", are the foundation of the coat. Though you can't see the materials, you need to find out about them to know how the appearance of the suit will hold up. For the most part, manufacturers of high grade suits use high grade hair canvas made of goat hair spun with wool. Through the shoulders and sometimes in lapels, hair cloth is need for extra body. Farther down the quality scale, cheaper hair canvas is used in coat fronts. To fake the crease resistant quality, the canvas is filled with glue like sizing, which sometimes has all unpleasant odor. This kind of canvas makes a front that feels crisp while the suit Is new, bat later the sizing comes out and the coat droops An information tag is needed to tell the quality of coat fronts used, but you can tell fairly accurately the quality used by grasping the coat front of a suit and pull your hand down over it. If good quality Interfacings have been used the coat will feel light weight and soft. The front will sp- ' ring back into shape without a wrinkle. In a low grade suit the front Will feel thick, bulky, and crisp. Inierllnings Important In good suits the interlinlngs of collars are made of firm linen that does not lose body. In the cheaper suits cotton .interlinings are SIZL and dyed to look like linen. Cotton Interlinings soften wi wear and cleaning, and soon the co lar won't set up to the neck. Whe you are buying a suit roll a corne of the collar up and forward. If th Interfacing is linen, the collar w: tly back Into place. If sized cotto has been used the collar will tur Jack slowly.

You can fee] the difference. The best padding is soft, light-weight and free from Iumnines-3. Cheap padding feels thick, heavy and Uneven. Pads in a good suit fits smoothly and do not exaggerate the shoulders. In a low jrade suit shoulders feel stiff and took abnormally wide. Top Suits Full Cut The way a suit is cut and sewed is important. High grade suits are full cut, with no piecings or defective cloth. In the low grade suits small flaws are ignored others mended or made to fall in seams. Sizes are skimped and piecings used most often in the crotch' to make the goods go as far as possible. Another outstanding difference in high grade suits is in matching tripes and plaids. In the best suits he cloth is cut so the pattern mat- ties precisely In low grade suits patterns matched in only one direc- ion, and not always with exactness. A suit must fit perfectly to wear and look its best. When you are buy- ng a euit, try on the whole suit— oat, trousers and vest, look at the ront and sides and back. Put on and ake off the coat yourself without he help of the salesman. With the oat buttoned, watch as you raise nd bend your arms, stoop and move about. Sit down and see how the uit fees. Walk with your natural Pittsburgh Money Find Turns Sour PITTSBURGH W)—Money, money everywhere—but not a bit was good. The money was old, worn and torn bills which the Pittsburgh branch of the Federal Reserve Bank had sent to the city dump to be burned. Some of the bundlee didn't get burned. ^ couple of boys rummaging through the dump came across the bundles and spread the word. Neighbors came running, picked up bills in $5, $20 and even $100 de- stride to see if the trousers are cut for walking comfort. The coat collar should eet up smooth and close to the back and sides of neck. The lapels and neck line should hold close to the-chest at all times. The coat should be long enough to cover the seat of the trousers. Men hard to fit can usually solve their fitting problems without the expense of custom work, at shops :arrying lines of clothes made for both regular and irregular figures. Alteration workers are not always skilled in making or remaking a suit. A suit that requires major alterations cannot be "made over to fit.
