Green Pastures Contest To Get Under Way Soon A !ar»e number of farmers are expected to particlpnte in the Greener Pastures Contest sponsored by radio station KVOO and the Agricultural Extension Scrv- I ice. This contest hns been sponsored by the two organizations for several years and \Vashinston County has had two winners in the past. The Pitts brothers won In the fifth district contest in 193. The fifth district is made up of Northwest Arkansas, Southwest Missouri, and a part of Kansas. .Ine S. Reed, Greathnuse Springs, was one of the winners in 1951. S. H. Pitts and -,Toe- Reed both received an all expense trip to Chicago as their award. Any farmer In Washington County can enter this contest by contuciinn the county agent. The KVOO farm department directs the contest in cooperation with the Extension ServiTM and has .announced the general rules for entry and the judging of the Equally as important as the showing of the fat harrows at 10 a. m. will be the sale of them at 2 p. m., at the same place. This sale, too, should be supported. Tt Is hoped that bidding for the champions will be especially lively. This should be a splendid place for the owner of a deep freeze to Ret a pig to go in it. A couple of families or several who do not want a whole barrow could purchase and divide one. Where else could one find, a better animal ? Then, too, when a farm product goes into a price dip, it needs the support of the buying public. Pork now needs that support. Let's not let it go begging. Finally, we should consider the growing importance of the teaching of vocational agriculture in the the keeping of well trained boys on the farms. The leading producer of registered Hampshire hogs in Arkansas and perhaps in the Southwest was just 13 years ago a vocational agriculture student in Rogers High School with no other farm background. While colleges have trained agriculturists, the high school vocational agriculture classes have trained farmers. Fortunately the number of. high schools offering vocational agriculture are greatly on the increase as a result especially of the recent consolidation of schools. All friends of Northwest Ar kansas agriculture, are encourage to support this show and sale an thereby further the teaching vocational agriculture. BY BOB PEARMAN Bentonville-(Special) - Despite the fact that Bentonville's Mayor Alvin Seamster has never really gone out of his way to collect antiques, he has accumulated some 1,500 items in his lifetime and many of them are valuable. Nearly all the articles in his collection were handed down in his family or other old Northwest Arkansas families. "Ab"' can point to almost any object in his collection and not only tell you where he acquired them but also trace the history of the family In which they .^were handed down. . Seamster has never specialized in any particular line of antiques. His collection contains, glassware, publications, silverware, guns, swords, flax wheels, and a flag lhat dates back to the days when there were only 13 states. A prize in the publications dis-! play is a copy of the Weekly Advance dated December 9, 1880. The paper, printed on only one side of one .sheet, was run off after a fire had burned most of the north side of the Bentonville Square. Wany of the antiques have a listory. A silver vessel stamped 1815 on the bottom was stolen r rom a plantation in Georgia dur- ng Sherman's march to the sea. A 'laxwheel has been in the ieamster family since before the Revolutionary War. One of Msyor Seamster's fa- vdrltes Is a Bible which belonged to Judge Alfred Greenwood, who may leave a donation if they like. A copper kettle, which was owned by the James Jackson family in Bedford County, Tenn., is being used for the collections. The display is open this afternoon and tomorrow afternoon. Mayor Seamstcr has issued a special invitation lo the members of the Washington County Histories! Society to see' his collection. 1838. to Northwest Arkansas in Judge Greenwood later became the first congressman from competition.
