But they are doinjj considerably more work than the program calls for--doing it on their own. Members nf Everett A. Ham's class, living in the West Fork- A'inslow area, have put in plenty of hours recently aiding one another in putting up new buildings. They learned the basic techniques at Fayettcvllle High School, where the program centers, or on the Job. But mostly they raised the oulldlngs on their own lime. South of West Fork a member of the class, Clint'Standlcy, lost his home In a Christmas Eve fire. Standley, his wife and children lost everything in the blaze. Then the other, members of Standlcy's class pitched in. They raised money for materials, putting on pie suppers and digging Into Ihclr own pockets. And, with material on hand, they devoted many hours of their time to crect- a new two-room - f a r m house.

YOUNKIN -In order to add bus service to several parts of the cily where paving projecls are being completed this season, il will bo necessary (or us to change many lime schedules and routes throiSRhoul the clly. Our service to the city's induslrial plants will be far bettor than in the pasl, and Iherc will he several' buses to Ihc- new high school in Ihc southwest part of Ihe cily. It takes a lot of study and planning, and that's why I have been riding the buses so much of Ihe time lately, 'n that way 1 can niakc first-hand surviv.;, netting a lot of good Ideas from talks with those who understand our problems the besl--those who use the bus service regularly. Special early buses to the Swanson it Son planl and other points In the induslrial and business section for Ihe benefit of llinje who musl be at work by seven o'clock in the morning would be added if we could be assured there would be enough rides to j u s t i f y them. We would like to hear from some of Ihc folks on or near tl-e following streets and additions: Lcverelt St., Garland, Duncan. S. Washlnglon, Hunlsville St., Third Street. Parksriale and Fairgrounds. If you would make use of such service, send us a postal card or letter wllh your name and address and place of employment, also the names of friends Interested. Although the nickel hamburger and S-cent loaf of bread ceased to exist years ago and prices on. both arc now several times highc". we are still giving n i c k e l ] bus rides. When a bus arrives at Ihe fnuafe wllh every scat occupied by a grade or high school student, after a half-hour trip lo one end o( I h c ' c i l y and buck, it might look like we are doing a profitable business until you figure that 30 riders at S cents each amounts to a total of $1.50. To make It a still belter bargain, assuming that all of those t h i r t y ridern wish to go over lo the-opposite end ol the city, we transfer inrm lo another bus, free of charge, and make another half- hour trip of four or five miles. If you're asking how we can a f ford lo continue to carry rldem on our busf» for .1 cents, our answer 11 this; WE CAN'T AFFORD IT. i (Adv.) Northwest Arkansas Farming By John I. Smith Agricultural education at Ihe high school level is on an immense increase in Norlhwest Arkansas. We now have 11 schools in Washington, Madison and Benton Counties with vocational agricultural departments and a number of others which are teaching agrlcullurbjin some form.

All Ihis is extremely 'cncourtg- ing lo Ihose who look forward lo a well trained farm populalion for Ihe future. Not only will proper (raining assist In keeping the kind of youth on the farms that can meet competition from outside but it will recruit 3 number of urban people to the farms. 1 have just finished reading 20 papers prepared by high school slurtcnls in an adjoining couniy. The papers were prepared for a rnnlcst sponsored by a national organization and the subject concerned soil conservation. H was about 15 years ago that some one staled lhat the soil con- sorvalion problems would nol be on Ihc road to solution until soil conservation p r i n c i p l e s were tnught in our high schools and grade, schools jtisl as arithmetic is taught. In reading these papers prepared by rural boys and girls (and there were as many girl contestants ns boys) I realized that tl?c#had mastered s subject heller than Ihe professional leaders had mastered it 15 years ago when the soil conservation movement was in its infancy. AH this is extremely encouraging and speaks well for Ihe rural cilizen- ship of Northwest Arkansas for coming years. We owe it In Ihe future of our section to promote agricultural (-duration at the high school and grade school levels just as it has been supported at the college level in Ihe past.
