WJ—Texas crop conditions at the start of a ;;ew season were on the favoraole side, as A whole, the U. S. Agricultural market ins service and Texas Agricultural Extension jervice reported today. The cooperating services said .subsoil moisture was satisfactory ^ln all but small portions of the state. Surface moisture conditions were regarded as favorable in the Panhandle, along the northern rows of the counties across the etate, in most o' East Texas, except for some southeastern counties where it was too wet for spring work. Drier In South To the south and westerly, conditions gradually became drier until in parts of Central and Southwestern Texas the shortage was, acute. The favorable situation in the north and northwest was due to snows during the first half of March. Spring work was progressing at about the normal rate, except in the driest portions of Central Texas and in the wet southeastern portion, while work was 10 days or mort late in much of the Mrs, MacArthur Is In Command In Her Own Home MELBOURNE, March 26. M>>—• Gen. Douglas MacArthur bosses the Allied armies in this part of the world, but in his own household the supreme command rests with his dark-eyed little wife. This was demonstrated today when Mrs. MacArthur took their small son Arthur on a shopping tour. She promptly deposited young Arthur in a barbership chair and northern coastal area because o£ previous cold and wet conditions. Corn Coming Up Wheat in the northwest had suffered only slight damage and was making good growth under the favorable conditions. In all of North Texas damage by "green bugs" was severe, amounting to almost total loss o£ oats in some northern blacklands counties, with the insects turning upon wheat and barley as well. Large portions of the fall acreage had been plowed up and prepared for corn or other crops. Infestation and damage was apparent down into parts of Central Texas. Preparation of fields was being pushed wherever possible. A large proportion of the corn acreage had been planted in the south and east and was coming up to a good stand. mum/M EVCRY LUNCH BOX!

HAfiRY J, SMITH MYRICK BUILDING LUBBOCK ordered a good haircut for him. "The General said Arthur was not to have a haircut because he might catch cold," the smiling mother told the barber. "But look at him — he needs a haircut badly His father is not around now to stop it, so let's trim it up." Reporters attending the general's press conference earlier noted that IVlacArthur himself needed a haircut, but concluded that he was much too busy to have it done. Delays Own Shopping Arthur, who like his father rarely smiles, sat ,«ober-faced while the barber clipped. Two other youngsters in adjoining chairs eyed Arthur and his Chinese nurse curiously, but young MacArthur looked straight ahead and said never a word. Lest the tropic-tanned lad find his clipped thatch insufficient cover, his mother bought him a warm cap, woolen underwear, heavy play suits, shoes and a pair of black gloves—first first. Clerks and sales girls invented excuses to drop in to the department for a look, and exclaimed over the attractive mother and the well-behaved youngster. Mrs. Mat-Arthur was so busy outfitting the boy that she put off shopping for herselt until tomorrow. Spring Arrives—And Down Come Stockings NEWARK, N. J., March 26 <&— Spring arrived the other day—and approximately 8,000 girl office workers at the Prudential Insurance company were permitted to roll stockings below their knees or even go stockingless for the first time in many years. The company, taking note of the war-time clothing emergency, lifted its requirements that full-length stockings be worn. Girl workers say the object of the requirement had been to prevent distraction of the male em- ployes. Russia' industrial output of defense materials, interrupted by the -German invasion, is reported to have again reached the levels of a year ago.

Stock Donated To Boys'Ranch MAGENTA, March 2G W,B~Bo.vs Ranch has become a cow ranch now. The once under-privileged youngsters living at Old Tascosa 40 miles northwest of Amarillo, had a "Boys Ranch" for two years before it became a real cow ranch It came about, said Supt. AHon . Weeks, as a result of a recent radio broadcast from Amarillo by a grouo of Bovs Kancu reiio?nts Five Panhandle cattlemen happened to hear the broadcast, and one asked: "How can those boys nave.a ranch without cattle?" He added that he would give the ranch a cow. The other four cattlemen nodded agreement, and each sent a registered Hereford to the ranch This story was printed by a newspaper, and other donations followed, now the ranch has 33 fine beef cattle. Wai Deseried Ranch Town Boys Ranch was established two and a half years ago by patrons of the Maverick Boys' Club of Amarillo. It was designed to give opportunities to underprivileged youngsters. Old Tascosa once was a rowdy frontier cr \v-town where Billy the Kid visited and gunfire frequently resounded from the dusty streets. The cattle trade moved to Amarillo and Tascosa was deserted, until a rancher gave the property —abandoned courthouse and all to the Maverick Club. During 1941, a $15,000 dormi- toi'y-gymnasium building was completed and 1,320 acres of land added to the 80 original acres Each boy has 'a 4-H Club farm project. Livestock sales by the youngsters last year totaled $3,300. weeks said, and in addition 3,365 quarts of fruits and vegetables were preserved for the table. The former Oklahoma Boy Scout executive who has been superintendent of Boys Ranch from the start, reports proudly that the first •graduate" has a job and that his employer described the youngster as "the best.worker . . . and most courteous boy" he had ever met. Ten million women are employed in industries of Russia. HOW MANY DUFE'ERS? '' NEW YORK W —There are 5,209 golf courses in the United States.
