A LAFF RIOT WITH MUSIC Ritz Bro's Andrew Sisters IN "ARGENTINE NIGHTS" COMEDY - MUSIC - SONG Starts Sunday --Don't Miss It 1|Dfl.VE.ri Northwest Arkansas Farming By John I. Smith H. O.'Porter, who operates a dairy on Route'4, has shown what can be expected in the way of hay and milk production from,'Winter oats and crimson clover. His cash returns as set out in this column of last Saturday exceeded SSOO for five acres. He has correctly pointed out that not only did he have these returns but that one-half of the cattle on this pasture were non-producers, and their maintenance and weight gains were not calculated.-This was a considerable item which was overlooked. An Arizona farmer who has a farm In Washington County has pointed out how much better our small uraln pastures looked to him last winter than did our permanent pastures of orchard grass, fescue, crimson and Ladlno. These small grain pastures fill in for the very worst period of winter when our permanent pastures have begun to play out about December 1. In addition to the productive gains of winter pastures they serve one other substantial pur- POM--protecting clean cultivated ground against leaching. Leaching, or dissolving away, is the great unseen robber of plant nutrients. The North, with her. frozen soils in winter, is not bothered as badly with leaching as the South. "We can not freeze our soils in winter and should not want to. Our warmer winters allow us to have a winter farming program Just as we have a cum- mer one. When the ground is filled with live roots such as those feeding small grains and winter clovers the dissolved nutrients arc largely caught and turned into foliage and finally into grain and hay. All of our ground which Is clean cultivated in summer to beans, cargo, tomatoes, su- dan and other summer crops should be covered with small grain or clover In winter. Tf one does not need the grazing, the soil needs the protection against leaching. In a year like this when our summer crops have nearly failed from drouth, we learn to appreciate the good May and June Harvest of oats, wheat, rye, barley and grass all of which gathered their nutrients in the previous winter when other bare lands were being cached.

At MALCO THEATRES Replacement Of Red Leaders Believed Coming Reason For Party Congress Session Figured By Expert Washington - (/P) - Prime Minister Stalin's motive in calling a formal Communist party Congress in Moscow October 5 may be to replace 60 key Communist leaders who have died or been purged. The Voice of America, official State Department radio, hinted that this may be Stalin's motive in summoninng Communist bosses together for the first time in 13 years. It was the first time approximating any official comment from (he Stale Department on this move by Stalin. A broadcast commenting on Moscow's announcement said of the 139 f u l l Central' Committee members: "At least 26 have in the past 13 years died or been purged. Another 34 have not been mentioned in the Soviet press in the last few years. "This indicates the high mortality rate--political as well" as literal--attached to membership in the Central Committee.'' The Central Committee Is the top-rank organization of Communists elected at each party con- press. It in t u r n elects the 12-man Politburo which actually runs Russia. Highlight of the last congress meeting in 1939 was a speech by Stalin which accused the west of trying to foment a war between Nazi Germany and Russia. "This statement turned out to be of great significance," said the Voice. "Seen in retrospect, it was an obvious bid for negotiations with Hitler. That bid paved the Restoration of ceiling price posting in food stores jn three widely separated test cities has drawn mixed reactions from grocers ranging from warm support to strong opposition, but has left the public apathetic, a spot survey today indicated. The Office of Price Stabilization suspended the nationwide program July 28 after it had been in effect six months. Early this month it was reimposed on the test cities of Fargo, N. D., Jacksonville, Fla., and Fresno, Calif. The survey showed considerable support among grocers in Fargo and strongest opposition in Fresno. But shoppers in the three cities paid little attention to the ceiling price posters and many were unaware of their existence. Qualified support for the system was expressed by grocers in Fargo, who said it v/as a full success--that is, if any controls at all ace necessary. They called it the best system used so far, with few officials interrupting management. Few Shoppers Interested A majority of Fargo store'oper- ators said, however, that few shoppers check the charts any more and "most people appear to have accepted higher prices." One dissenting store owner said the tem "doesn't mean anything because ceilings have been taken off so many items." Another owner said he believed the system reinstated early this month after having been suspended for a month, helped, at first in calling attention of customers to prices and helping to bring price competition. la Jacksonville, independent grocers reporte" that customers paid little attention to the price lists. One, Aaron C. Crews, said lhat "poster prices are three and 'our cents above shelf prices, and people don't pay any attention to -he posters." W. E. Law, Florida sales manager for the A. and P. food chain, said store managers had been Riven firm instructions to observe ceiling prices and "customers for he most part seem to well aware of this policy and have more or ess ignored the price lists posted every other week." )ppositlon In Fresno Outspoken opposition was reported in Fresno, Calif., where he Fresno County Grocers Association called the program an unnecessary waste of taxpayers' money and said that it defeats the way for negotiation which led to the Nazi-Soviet pact." increases in labor costs on the grocer, and casts suspicion on honest merchants. The Stale Grocers Association publication, California Grocers Advocate, said in an editorial: "This community price posting is an apparent attempt to keep more personnel on the OPS payroll, while Congress indicates price control activities should be reduced and items should be suspended from controls as rapidly as possible." On the other hand, Russell Pj- vey. acting district director of the . OPS a_t Fresno, declared "The price posting experience at Fresno has confirmed our original expectation .that the posting of ceiling prices in grocery stores is the most effective method of price _ control." Although an AP survey-in Fresno showed a large proportion of the general public apathetic toward the program, or ignorant of* its existence, a vocal minority of both consumers and grocers expressed strong support.
