The classification rated the animals for type, comparing them against the breed's score of 100 points for a perfect animal. It included all previously unclassified females that have had at least one calf snd all bulls over two years old. They were rated by C. L. Roufeou of the Southwest Louisiana Institute. Hougeou. is an official classifier for .the club, which has its national headquarters in Columbus, Ohio; Of the eight animals classified, three rated very good, two good plus, tnd one good, and two fair. The classification program sponsored by the club is designed to help breeders of registered Jerseys improve their cattle by know- Ing which ones come closest to the breed's standard of perfection. Northwest Arkansas Forming By John I. Smith In this column last Saturday we dlicused the protection of our soils against leaching by keeping a green cover on the ground during winter. There is another feature of soil building and leaching control that Is of particular importance to Northwest Arkansas--namely, the increased use of manure. It is doubtful if there is a farmer anywhere who does not know well,the value of manure for increased production. The increased production stands out boldly. But does everyone know that organic matter, or manure, which is one of the best sources of organic matter, increases the ability of take and hold the commercial fertilizers which are ap- (illed to soils? Everyone has heard a farmer remark, "I have applied fertilizer (commercial) to that land, but it Just goes through It." What does he mean? He means that the rain water has leached out the plant nutrients before the crops had an opportunity to utilize them. Coase candy soils are particularly poor in retaining applied commercial fertilizers. The water goes through so rapidly and the sand ha» «uch poor nutrient holding ca- paclty. Sllty clay soils with their fine particles do not let the watt: through 20 rapidly and have great er nutrient holding capacity. Or ganlc matter lie silt and clay assists in holding plant nutrient which arc applied in the form o .commercial fertilizer. Our farmers have no way o( increasing the clay and silt conten of soils, except for a few square yards, but they can work to increase the organic matter conten by applying all the barnyard manure and chicken manure they can obtain. Dr. Emil Truog of the University of Wisconsin recently said "Soils are frugal custodians o plant nutrients." However, he went ahead to explain how the silly clay soils are better custodians of applied nutrients than sandy soils and that more oreanic matter In the soils, especially sandy soils, was necessary to make our soils "frugal custodians" of costly commercial fertilizers. Wisconsin has lots of barnyard manure to haul nul nf her dairy barns. Let us all remember the value of manure in trying to build up our soils, especially our sandy sojls of Northwest Arkansas. Arkansas Weekly Chick Report Hatcheries and dealers placed 714,000 broiler chicks with' producers in the Northwest area during the week ended August 23 according to the Arkansas Crop Reporting Service.

Northwest Arkansas' newest industry Is a strange one icr the Ozark Mountains--boat building. Or maybe it isn't so strange'after all, because Ozarks people have been buiiding boats in the backyard for generations. Good boats, too. Located just north of the Fay- etteviile city limits on Highway 71, the General Supply Company is tooling up to produce 20 Play- craft boats a day. Carl Tune, Fay- ettcville contractor v/ho founded the company, says the concern should begin to hit its production stride shortly after the first of the year. , Two types of boats will be built, V bottom craft for lake use, and the characteristic Ozark river boat, type made famous on White River fjoat trips. Both types will come in 12 and J4 foot sizes. Pilot models of each type craft lave long been complete, and a dozen or so of each have been ill for testing purposes. "I'd hate to figure out how much those first two boats cost us," Tune said. "It sounds easy to design a boat, but it runs into a tough job when you want a really Jood, sturdy boat." The plant is housed in a sheet metal building just off the high- tvay. A second pre-fabricated metal structure, 36 by 96 feet, is ncaring completion. The original building houses most of the firm's machinery, while the new building will serve as paint shop and warehouse. Lawrence Evans of Fayetteville, who oversaw construction of the buildings and installation ot the mass of machinery, will manage he new company. When full production is reached he will use a crew of 15'to 20 local men. Material Collected Material for construction of the small craft is being collected. The marine plywood covering the hulls come from the West Coast, ut the other wood used will be native to the Ozarks--oak, ash and valnut. The entire output of sev- :ral sawmills is currently being lurchased and placed in storage or seasoning. Parts for the boats will he pre- :ut by skilled workers using spe- :ialized power tools and equipment. Sufficient parts for 20 boats vill be cut each morning before he work of assembling the craft s started. With all parts cut and inishcd, Tune believes the work will proceed rapidly, with work- icn assenwlying one boat at a ime on special jigs designed to peed construction. Once assembled, each boat will e given a final sanding and sent o the paint shop, where it will re- eive four coats of paint and var- lish. The river frosts will be ainled green, i n - . i ; and out, /hilc the lake craf; will be paint- id white .and green outside, and -arnished inside. After the final coat o'. p a i n t IBS been applied, the new boats i\\\ be'pressure-tested in a large ank. Floated on the water in the Above, owner Carl Tune and manager Lawrence Evans (right) check final construction of a river- type boat. Evans puts a final touch to the sanding as Tune looks on.

The test is design ed to bring to light any possible leaks not located by regular means. Designed for easy transporta lion, the boats will be'light. The H-foot lake boat when completed weighs only 138 pounds, while the M-foot river boat weighs 128. The 12-foot craft are correspondingly lighter. Lone Housewife Trouble Enough, Railway Learns Los Angeles-(/P)-A pretty young housewife can do a lot of things to hinder the construction of a railway spur if she sets her mind to it. They were listed by an attorney for the Southern Pacific Railway yesterday when Mrs. Fredna Pavlich, 277, appeared in .Superior Court. He said that she: 3. Pulled up survey stakes as fast as the construction crew could put them in. 2. Stood in front of a grader, filled up post holes, and turned her garden hose in the faces of workers until they were forced to stop work. 3. Stood on the right of way with a rou'k poised to throw. 4. Threw the rock at a man who was taking her picture. Judge Frank Swain issued an injunction to keep Mrs. Pavlich from interfering with the construction. H. O. Van Pctten, attorney for Mrs. Pavlich, said his client did most of the acts because she was a f r a i d for the safety of her children.
