Members of Everett A. Ham's class, living in I he West Fork- Winslow arra, hnvp put in plonly of hours recently aiding one another in putting up new buildings. They learned the basic techniques at Fayettcvlllc High School, where the program centers, or on the job. But mostly they raised Ihe buildings on their own time. South of West.

Then the other. members of Standley's class pitched in. They raised money for materials, putting on pie suppers and digging Into their own pockets. And, with material on hand, they devoted many hours of their time to erect- a new two-room farm house. Later the same men gave an- olhcr member of the class, Alvros Watkins, a hund in building his new broiler house.

CITY BUS NEWS ·^-- By H. W. YOUNKIN--i In order tn nrid bus service to several parts of the city where paving projects are being completed this season, it will be cssary for us to change many tirnn schedules and routes throughout the city. Our service to the city's industrial plants will be far better than in the past, and there will be several buses to the* new high school in the southwest part of the city. It takes a lot of study and planning, and tiiat's why I have been riding the buses so much of the time lately. In that way I can make first-hand surveys. Retting a lot of good ideas from talks with those who understand our problems tho best--those who use the bus service regularly. Special early buses to the Swan- Son plant and other points Northwest Arkansas Farming By John L Smith Agricultural education at the high school level is on an immense increase in Northwest Arkansas. We now have 11 schools in Washington, Madison and Benton Counties with vocational agricultural departments and ; number of others which are teach ing agriculture in some form.-The number will undoubtedly increase rapidly as our newly consolidated schools pay off their debts inci dent to consolidation. All this is extremely encouraging to those who look forward lo a well trained farm population for the future. Not only i proper training assist in keeping the kind of youth on the farms that can meet competition from outside hut it will recruit a number of urban people to the farms. I have just finished reading 20 papers prepared by high school students in an adjoining county. The papers were prepared for a contest sponsored by a national organization and the subject concerned soil conservation. It was about 15 years ago that some one stated that the soil conservation problems would not be on the road to solution until sriil conservation p r i n c i p l e s were taught in our high schools and firade schools just as arithmetic is taught. In reading these papers prepared by rural boys and girls (and there were as many girl contestants us boys) I realized that the^had mastered a subject better than the professional leaders had mastered it IS years ago when the soil conservation movement was in its infancy. All this is extremely encouraging and speaks well for the rjiral citizenship of Northwest Arkansas for coming years. We owe it to the future of our section to promote agricultural education at the high school and nual convention of the Farmers Co-Operative Grain Dealers Association of Oklahoma. He cited these four reasons for increased production: To feed an increasing population, a n ' a r m y in the field to be fed, hungry Europeans to feed under our present foreign policy, and the necessity of an emergency stockpile of'food and fiber. The secretary praised President Truman's Point Four program and explained it "is designed not to make other countries dependent on the United States but to make them self sufficient."
