WHITE DEER REVIEW, White Deer, Carson County, Texas
Men and products may vie for
leadership, but it is the public that
confers it. . . . And again in 1940,
for the ninth time in the last ten
years, people are buying more Chev-
rolets than any other mako of car!
APPLICATION FOR COTTON
XJune 15 has been set for the
Carson County AAA committee
as the final date for accepting ap-
plications for cotton mattress ma-
terial being distributed by the
Surplus Commodity Corporation.
A large cotton surplus has lead
the Surplus Commodity Corpora-
tion to offer cotton and ticking
to many farm families for the
making of cotton mattresses.
Such a distribution of a surplus
is far more intelligent than the
destruction of excesses of cotton

on the market, it is pointed out.
In Carson County the plan is
to make these mattresses in com-
munity centers. The work, will be
done under the supervision of the
home demonstration agent or peo-
ple already trained in mattress
making. The mattresses thus
made are of excellent quality.
Several Carson County families
already have such mattresses for
which they purchased the materi-
Application forms are available
in the office of the home demon-
stration and county agents, and
President of community home
demonstration clubs also have the
application forms. Those interest-
ed in making a mattress from the
material supplied should get the
applications in the county home
demonstration agent’s office not
later than June 15. Further in-
formation concerning this pro-
gram can be obtained from the
home demonstration agent or
county agent’s office. It is also
planned for the home demon-
stration agent to be at the school-
house at Groom on Monday, June
10th, from 1 to 7 p. m., and for
t,l^e county agent to be at the ag-
ricultural building across from
the White Deer school in White
Deer’on Monday, June 10th, from
1 to 7 p. in. Parties living in these
communities can obtain addition-
al information at the above places

The county jail at Waxahachie
was packed today with 90 alleged
members of a pacifist, religious
cult, 58 of them women.

attempted to distribute literature,
they were being held pending the
return of District Attorney For-

Hundreds of residents blocked
streets and milled about the jail
while officers and Waxahachie i

rounded up as many of the eul-

Several days ago. County Jud-
ge E. C. Randle warned members
of the sect not to come to Waxah-
achie at this time.
At about the same time that the
arrests, were being made at Wax-
ahachie, 50 members of the same
sect were released from jail at
Odessa, several hundreds miles a-
wav. Officers took them to the
county line and told them to keep

FARM INCOME TO BE SAMI
AS LAST 2 YEARS
FLEMINGTON, N. J., June 4
—W. S. Farish, president of
Standard Oil Co. of New Jersey,
announced today that company
technicians had developed a new
type of synthetic rubber with
which Standard Oil would be able
to supply “any required quani-
ties” to the United States.
The new rubber, he said ilaaaes
been named “butyl.”
“We believe,” said FarisjS^
“that butyl is superior to natoaadS
rubber for many uses.
BIG CROWD EXPECTED
9 Faded window shades can be
*‘restored” by giving them a
coat of bright flat paint.
New woodwork, such as shelv-
es, closets and so on, should be
painted like the exteriors of new
houses: first primed once with
pure linsed oil, then painted with
a thin paint and followed by a
third or final thicker coat.
To get the best results in var-
nishing furniture, the varnish
must be kept at an even, warm
temperature, and put on neither
too plentifully nor too gingerly.
COLLEGE STATION, June 7.
—Although the annual Farmers’
Short Course on the campus of A.
''and M. College is still a month
distant, indications are that pre-
vious attendance record will be
broken this summer. Dates for the
4-H Club Short Course are July
8 and 9, while the adult Short
Course is scheduled for July 11
Expected to be especially out-
standing this year is the atten-
dance of an unusually large num-
ber of men. This was assured
when B. F. Vance, assistant ad-
ministrative officer in charge of
the state AAA office, announced
that approximately 750 AAA sec-
retaries and county agricultural
conservation committeemen would
be present for the Short Course
as well as to attend group meet-
ings of their own.
Approximately one human in
10,000 is an albino.

Despite these price setbacl
the department forcast a fai

The department said the eff<
of lower prices would be f

moving to market late this
month. Prices of the grain are
about 30 cents a bushel lower
than a month ago.
The department estimated that
the 11,500,000-bale cotton surplus
had ben reduced about 1,000,000
bales this season, but added that
factors on the demand side have
become “increasingly unfavor-
able.” Domestic cotton mills have
been less active since December,
and German invasion of France,
Belgium, and Holland, normally
j big buyers of American cotton,
' has reduced the foreign demand.
Favorable factors for farmers
and their 3,000,000 hired hands,
federal officials said, include:

sheep and lambs.

month from fruit and vegetables.

—With an estimated 40,000,000
acres of cropland and 85,000,000
acres of rangeland signed up un-
der the AAA for 1940, officials
here believe participation in the
program will be the largest of any
year since the program began.
Latest reports indicate that
more than 414,000 Texas farms
will operate under the Agricultur
al Conservation Program in 1940,
an increase over the 1939 parti
cipation of nearly 4,000 ivhile ap
proximately 1,200 additional
ranches will practice range-impro-
vement measures under the Range
Conservation Program, bringing
the unmber of ranches coopera-
ting to 26,100.
To these farmers and ranch-
men will go the greater portion
of the $89,000,000 available to
Texas for full participation in the
AAA program, George Slaughter,
chairman of the state committee,
pointed out. Full cooperation re-
