The' offer ciame from the City of Murfrecs- boro, which built the 13-mile pipe, and from the Arkansas Louisiana Jas company, which will operate under lease. The offer was to pump water out of the Little Missouri river, providing Nashville could obtain a pump. Na'shville accepted promptly, and said it would find a pump. That's a large order, too, for tne pump required has to move 150,000 gallons daily.

The designs which has neglected to provide an ample and costly supply of water. H^his spectre very definitely confronts Hope. Nashville was depending on a small reservoir fed by a stream now striken by the third consecutive year of drouth. Hope depends on deep wells, which have given trouble before and will give much more serious trouble in the future — perhaps the very near future. The water table is dropping steadily in'all wells throughout Texas, d^klahoma, and Arkansas — and nas been for years. It's not merely a matter of consecutive drouth years.

But now tlie water tables are falling everywhere. The situation is an absurd one for Arkansas, which claims more miles of technically naviga.bje rivers than any state in America. These represent surface water reserves capable of supplying a population many times our state's. dIBut here is where we need the water, yet it's over yonder in some river — with neither a dam nor a pipeline in sight. What Arkansas needs is a second ' Tennessee Valley development, on permanent would store up the winter and spring surplus and meter out water to all of us through the dry summer and fall.

Yes, Kir, that's right electrical beauty engineering. Many a beautiful courtship is broken up because the couple involved see to much of each other. For example; Elsie, weary of the lack of fame and fortune she has found behind a typewrite, lays a trap for Elmer her reluctant admirer. She invites him to her apartment, sets him ablaze with r. few dry martinis, and banks the firu with a fine home-cooked meal. Shu then lures him to the sofa. Elmer, soggy with .comfort and secretly weary of bachelorhood, is ready to pop the question. But he looks across the sofa nt Elsie and what does he see? Under the cruelly bright floor lamp Elsie's .haiv looks like wires, each of her 1,313 heckles stand out like checkers on a checkerboard, ^nd Elmer subconsctpusly is counting her chins one, two, three, "Oh, no," he mutters," "not that." Elsie is lucky if ..he doesn't jump up and race for the door. Or, to be gall and about it, let's take it from Elsie's standpoint. She gazes across the sofn and what does, she see? Are those hairs growing out of Elmer's ears or feathers? Even more important: Are those things really ears, or flanges? What does he use them for? To hear with or to fan himself on warm dyys? Elsie decides she'd rather look at a type writer the rest of her life than those ears. In either case the romance mildews because they have seen each other's defects too clearly, too soon. To now three's a little gadget on the market called a Luxtrol powersate walj dirnjrier.

UP) — A Virginia soldier convicted of col Inborating with the enemy while a war prisoner is expected to ar ioocl Woods anagement Reduces Loss Good woodland management can reduce losses of pine trees from drouth and bark beetles, according to a recent statement of George F. Brown. Work Unit Conservationist, Soil Conservation Service, Hempstead County. In recent surveys in East Texas, drouths assisted somewhat by bark beetles, killed eight times as much timber per acre in uncut and unimproved woods as it did on intensively managed woods, accord ing to information received by George Brown. "As a result of these surveys and in view of recent pine losses in this area, we are advising woodland owners who are cooperating with the Hempstcad County Soil District to thin their woodlands when scheduled and to weed out by girdling or poisoning, all cull and low-grade hardwoods as fast as possible," Mr. Brown said. It was further pointed out by Mr. Brown that in most cases the time and cost in girdling or poisoning of cull and low-grade hardwoods was considerably less than the loss in pine stumpage on woods suffering from drouth and bark beetles in the Texas area. , "We believe it will pay the wood, land owner to start girdling or poisoning now before any serious Josses occur from drouth or back beetles."
