Research Project Under Way In Improvement Of Cattle A considerable chanje has taken place during the past five months »t the University's new beef cattle pi ojecl area at North Savoy (In Washington County), on part ot the original Wedington project area. When the University purchased the approximately 3,100 acres of land from the U.S. Department of Agriculture last March, the area consisted primarily of pasture and cut-over w o o d l a n d . Now the headquarters site with its many buildings is nearly completed. new fences have been put up and old ones repaired, and 250 head of cattle are grazing op the land. The project area is being used exclusively in connection with · Southern regional rewired pro], ert on th« improvement of beef cattle through breeding, in which the Arktnjii agricultural experi ment itition is cooperating, K- cordinf to Dr. Lippert S. Ellis, dean »nd director of the University's College oJ Agriculture. Tn that end, the station's breeding herds, comprising 250 head of Hereford, Shorthorn, »nd Aberdeen Angus cattle, h«ve already been transferred to the area. Hearing completion at the headquarters site are cottages for the herdsmen and assistant herdsmen. Ar. soon as they are finished, Robert Honea, beef cattle herdsman for the experiment station, ir.A an assistant will move out to the area. Other buildingi are 220-foot bull testing barn for feeding out 50 young bulls at a time; a pen barn with 20 large box stalls for maintains animals to be fitted for exhibit and for sale; a hiy btrn that will hold 300 tons of hay, with attached cattle shed; · cattle v/orkshed where all animals under two years of age will be weighed and measured each month; and a machine shed and farm «hop. Plans for all the buildings were drawn up by T. E. Hazen, of the University'i agricultural engineering department, who alto supervised their construction. The barns, all of pole construction, were made from oak lumber cul from the farm woodlots on the 3,100 acres. The University did not purchase any of the forest area of the original land utillza ion project, Dean Ellis pointed out. To date, mile and quarter of new woven wire fence has been strung, ind about five mile* of ence already on the land has been repaired. Within the year, about 11 miles of highway and cross-fencing will hive been completed. The area is being operated as part of the main agricultural experiment station of the College of Agriculture. Dr. Warren Gifford, ivho is head of the animal indus- ry and veterinary science department and leader ot the regional beet breeding project, is in charge. % GALLON Vtfilii ke Creim 63c Irat.

SOON The Little Darlings Will Be Going Back To School OF COURSE, they've been just like little angels all summer long. They haven't trampled the garden, broken your favorite vase or knocked dov.-n the picket fence - not intentionally, anyway. We know you'll "hate" to let teacher worry with them for awhile. Seriously, though, Mom is the one who suffers most when school time rolls around again. First grade Mary needs a whole new wardrobe - grown-up clothes for a suddenly grown-up baby. Jimmy's vacation outfit - mostly bathing trunks - won't do for the classroom, and he's grown completely out of last year's suits and shirts. Mother has to do a lot of buying, but the budget says, "Watch every penny" - and that means a lot of shopping around. No wonder it's Mother who's in a school daze! BUT - many people are helping her. Most Fayetteville stores will be featuring school clothes and school supplies in their advertisements in the TIMES' special Education Edition August 26. Mother can sit down and do her back-to-school shopping right in the newspaper's advertising columns.
