I White County Affords Well Balanced Plan I -- Below i j • ven a program sug gest- 'd by the Searcy Chambei j of Commerce as being good fo i many of the farmers in White (County. ir. deciding on this prog ’arn V e controlling thought was the converting of tire crop grown it to actual money. There j are many things that can be i grown in abundance in White County,but there are not sc many things for which a suc cessful market is assured. The program suggested is as follows, Crops in Season Radishes Strawbeme* Sweet Potato^ Corn with Peas or Beans in the Row Hay — Lespecleza oi- Peas Cotton ‘ Throughout Entire Year Poultry, Hogs and Dairy. Our very recent experience with both radishes and stiaw berries is, or should be at least, proof conclusive that we need a number of “MONEY CROPS” The radish yield and the radish market this year was not by any means what it has been in pre years. However, some few made nice money out of the ra dish crop. Others made less and some made nothing. The fact, however, remains that ra dishes grown in the right quan tity over a period of several years is as dependable a money crop as strawberries or other produce of similar kind. Ra dishes should not be grown in large quantities by each inciivid al farmer; that is to say, the av erage fanner should not have more radishes than the force he has at his command can take care of without interfening with other crops he may have plan ned to grow during the season. You will note that strawber ries are listed second among the crops in season. All of us know what the strawberry has meant to White County. With regard to the amount of acreage each farmer should have in strawber ries the general opinion seems to be that there is more danger in getting too many acres of strawberies than there is returns and \>ill require far r&as -.ateof and will interfer less with other crops than many acres not well taken care of will do. Too man y acres Of bevies become a lia bility in that it is expensive to care for, it would interfere with other crops and the grower is de pendent largely on the help he gets from others. It is a busi ness prop.: it ion for each straw berry gi'owe to figue out the number of acres he can handle j together with the other crops he \pay be growing during the sea son vri’ii the thought in mind of fully utilizing his time and facilities. A sweet potato association has recently been organized and will build a curing house in Searcy. This association will become af filiated with the Arkansas Sweet Potato Exchange. This Sweet Potato Exchange will do the sell jpo- nn ^ na+ion-wide scale. This • . r SE. experiment. It iici» >»eeii u ieu out for several years. There are some thirty odd towns members of this ex change at this time. It would appear that this plan is going to bring the sweet potato to the front rank as a dependable mon ey crop White County is especially adapted to the growing ofLes pedeza hay. The analysis of lespedeza hay shows that it is a ’wonderful hay. There is no more need for White County farmers to buy alfalfa hay ship ped in from distant points or timothy hay than it is for the places where alfalfa, clover and timothy are grown to ship in les pedeza hay. The fanners of White County can grow on a comparatively small acreage as much lespedeza hay as they need money can buy. In addition to the lespedeza being a good hay crop there are other hay crops and will have as good a hay as such as peas, which on some land possibly would be better than les pedeza. The point is that White County can grow its own hay and can grow it in abundance. We have some land in White County that grows good corn. Generally speaking our average [corn crop does not compare with the average com crop of other places. However, we are bless ed with another advantage not 1 enjoyed by other places. To il lustrate: We can plant right in jthe row. with the corn soy beans ! or some kind of a pea that will i mature with an abundance of | fruit. j Cotton is and always will he jc«a 3f the dependable crops for this section of Arkansas. It is [not a mistake for each farmer to grow some cotton. The dan ger lies more in the average far mer attempting to grow too much cotton. The kind of cotton best suited is a problem for each farmer to solve for himself. The above program should be MANY ACCIDENTS ARE AVOIDABLE 54,000 People ...Were Killed By Railroads in the Past Ten Years. During the last 10 years 84,000 people have been killed and in jured in this country while tres passing or walking on railroad tracks and bridges and unlaw- j fully riding on freight and pas-1 senger trains. Nine thousand of this number were children under 14 years of age, twelve thousand were be tween 14 and 21 years; nine thousand were hcboes i nd tramps, the remaining fifty-four thousand were useful members of society, including clerks, in dustrial workers and profession al people, the majority of whom j lived in the communities in which they met death or injury. It is generally thought that j train wrecks cause most of the! casualties on railroads, but this, is not the case. Fatalities to trespassers, that is, persons who have no business on railroads, amount to seven times the num ber of all classes of people killed in train accidents. This is a needless waste of! human life and it will be stop-! ped when the public spirited! citizens of every community a- j waken to the significance of this killing and maiming of human Deings. Indeed, great improvement | has already been made- Be- j ginning in 1903 and up to 1915 | the number of trespassers killed j and injured on the railroads of the United States was about 10, 000 per year, but during the last three years this has been re duced to an average of about 5, 000 per year, notwithstanding reinforced by the growing of ] poultry. All of us • know what I can be done in the way of grow- | ing poultry and we have a posi tive, dependable market at any i 1 and all times of the year.This can become a positive source of income to the family. a large increase in population and corresponding increase in railroad business. This splendid result is due to Safety Education in the home, newspapers, schools and indus tries, and the efforts put forth, by railroads through their Po lice and Safety Departments to keep all persons off the tracks who have no business to l>e there. To further prevent death and injury from trespassing, teach ers, preachers, editors, business men and women and all other public spirited citizens era urg ed to use their influence in hav ing these simple precautions folowed: 1. Do not walk on railroad tracks or bridges. Use the streets and highways. 2. Do not alow children to play around railroad tracks, stat ions, turntables, cranes, cars, or other railroad property. 3. Do not crawl under or be tween cars. Do not attempt to board moving trains or cars. 4. Do not craw/ under or go around crossing gates when they are down. Stop until train pas es. 5. Before crossing tracks at crossings STOP, LOOK AND LISTEN to see if a train is com ing, and after a train has passed make sure no other trains are approaching in either direction.
