The first-aid people got behind schedule considerably and one little Scout lay awaiting his rescuers i'or over an hour.

II, 192* One of our favorite authors writing on a favorite theme is plugged in a publicity release from 9. national magazine. The author is James H. Street (Oh Promised Land, The Biscuit Eater, Tap Roots, etc.). His subject is The South. And, according to our message from Holiday magazine, he'll tell '& about The South in the October issue. He'll tell all, that is ... its accent, its cooking, its historical reverence, its music, its hospitality, and its women. James Howell Smith ought to know. He was born in Mississippi, got his education and his start in the newspaper business there (Laurel and Hattiesburg), became a Baptist minister, and then returned to a reporter's life. At i"|j, one time he was with the Associated ' Press bureau in Little Rock, where I had a telephone acquaintance with him. . , ___ __. Then he shoved off for New York, and since 1937 has been one of America's top-notch novelists. One of his smaller pieces, a short story called The Biscuit Eater, was made into a movie that every dog-lover in these parts remembers from its Showing in Hope. ,$• Well, what has Street to say about the South and Southerners? Holiday's press release says Street describes a Southerner as: "A fellow who doesn't know the words of 'Dixie' but who wants to holler when he hears the tune." That's a pretty fair quote. And Holiday's synopsis of the forthcoming Street article adds in &. its own words: 1^,..: "The author goes,.on to^ay it's not that'the-South* rememr--, bers the Civil War, but rather,that they can't forget it, •because it ffqwns at .them from thousands of monuments, tombstones, and the like. And, he says, let two Southerns meet and they won't talk about the Civil War at all, but let a Northerner join them, and up ±g it pops." '™ Street's final verdict is, says Holiday, that The South has changed more in the past 15 years than it did in the previous 50. *j HOPE, ARKANSAS/ FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1954 M»mb«r; th* Autetottd Prtto 4 AudH tttf*Hl AT.

I'm Certain Duties Connected With Property As an owner or occupier of property, a Hempstead County farmer must maintain his holdings with due regard to the safety of others. This duty applies particularly in .he upkeep of buildings, in the :ontrol of his livestock on the farm, n the wholesomeness of the products he sells, as well as to work undertaken both on and off the farm, according to Oliver L. A,Aams, county agent. Adams said that under personal .lability, a farmer is responsible among other things, for the following: To warn his tenant of any hazard on the premises that would not ordinarily be detected. To safeguard visitors on his premises. His greatest responsibility is to those he directly or indireptly Invites to his place. He is less responsible for licenses, such as salesman. He owes trespassers at least the duty of not knowingly harming them.
