EXCHANGING TEXT-BOOKS
Little Rock. Oct. 1.—Complaints
have reached the Department of Edu
cation regarding the exchange of
text-books under the new text book
law, according to a letter addressed
to the county superintendents by
J. L. Bond. Superintendent of Public
Instruction. In his letter Mr. Bond
says there is no excuse for com
plaints because the law provided in
detail a fair and just exchange of
old books for new. He suggests that
the examiners and superintendents
take the matter up with the deposi
tories. and see that the books are
handled as the law contemplates.

TELEPHONE GRLS OUT
Little Rock, Oct. 1.—Interest in the
local telephone situation was added
when several women strike breakers
from Ft. Smith arrived in the city
yesterday. The phone service at Ft
Smith has been completely discon
tinued. both long distance and local.
The operators at Little Rock and
Fort Smith formed a union The
Southwestern Bell Telephone ('o. op
posed the organization and it is
said, told all those who joined the
union they would be discharged.
The organization was formed by the
employees. The officials at Fort
Smith are said to have refused to
even meet a committee ofthe union,
and as a result all those employed
who were not discharged walked
out. No trouble has si far develop
ed in Little Rock, but the operators
are continuing their organization.
Public sentiment at Fort Smith and
Little Rock is with the women op
erators. who say they only sought to
organize, and had made no demands
on the company when they were dis
charged^__
I Would you mix your
cattle-feed with cotton?
X70U know that such a combination would be carried
J through the digestive tract without giving the milk
producing and fat-producing food a chance to be
assimilated. The lint on old style hulls acts the same
way. It forms a pad or cushion-like covering around
H the concentrates that prevents the digestive juices from
6 extracting the full amount of protein.

V HULLS V
LINTLESS
contain no lint to clog or flux the digestive tract. They
are digested and they allow the other forage to be di
gested the same as hay or any other roughage.
When you mix your feed with Buckeye Hulls you know |
that you are using roughage that will help—not hinder—
the meal, com, oats, or whatever concentrate you prefer.
Other Advantages
2000 pounds of real roughage to
the ton—not 1500.
Cost much less per ton.
Go much farther.
No trash or dust.
Easy to handle because sacked.
They mix well with other forage.
They take less space in the bam.
I Mr. C. K. Henderson, Aiken, S. C., says:
that he would rather have Buckeye Hulls than any others.
He uses Buckeye Hulls altogether — says they are
cheaper and better.
To secure the best results and to develop the ensilage odor, wet the halts
thoroughly twelve hours before feeding. It is easy to do this by
wetting them down night and morning lor the next feeding. If at any time
this cannot be done, wet down at least thirty minutes. If you prefer to
feed the hulls dry, use only half as much by bulk as of eld style hulls.
Book of Mixed Feed* Free
Gives the right formula for every combination of feeds used in the
South. Tells how much to feed for maintenance, for milk, for fat
tening, for work. Describes Buckeye Hulls and gives directions for
iwing them properly. Send for your copy to the nearest mill.

Mr. Williams has received the fol
lowing message from Herbert Hoov
er relative to the pledge card cam
paign:
• The week of October 21-28 has
been selected for a nation wide cam
paign to complete the enrollment of
our forces in conservation of our
food supply. The harvest is now in
hand and we can measure the world's
rescrurces. The available supplies
this harvest are less than last year.
The demand upon us is greater than
last year, and from the last harvest
we exported more than we could
really afford. We can only meet
the call upon us next year by saving
and the substitution of commodities
which cannot be transported. The
allies are our first line of defense.
They must be fed and food will win
rhe war. All Europe are on rations
or restricted supplies. Only in our
own country is each one permitted to
judge for himself the duty he owes
his country in food consumption,
although the world depends upon us
to guard an 1 provide its food supply.
This is a duty of necessity, human
ity and honor. As a free people we
have elected to discharge this duty,
not under autocratic decree, but
without other restraint than the guid
ance of individual conscience. Qn
the success of this unprecedented
venture in democracy will largely
stake the issue of the war. We are
asking every household, every res
taurant and hotel keeper and dealer
in food stuffs in the nation to be
come a member of the food admin
istration for conservation, and to
pledge themselves to follow, insofar
as circumstances permit, the sugges
tions that will be offered from time
to time as to measures of food sav
ing For us there is no threat of
privation. We wish only that our
people should eat plenty, but wisely
and without waste. Wisdom in eat
ing is to make possible such ad
justments in our food consumption
as shipping and war necessities will
allow us to fulfill our duty in ex
ports to our allies. Hy elimination of
v aste we serve ourselves economic
ally and morally I therefore appeal
to the churches and the schools for
their assistance in this crusade, to
all the organizations for defense,
lnnul a nd national, to all the agencies
commercial, social and civic, that
mey join the administration in this
work for the fundamental safety of
the nation."
Malicious Rumor Denied
telegram was read irom George
W. Simmons, manager of the South
western Division of the Red Cross,
of which Arkansas is a part. The
telegram, in part, follows:
.. story is being circulated to the

articles knitted for the Red Cross
are being sold, either to the public
in shops or direct to the soldiers.
It is very important that you issue

■WOMAN'S BIBLE CLASS"
The fall term of the woman’s bible
class opens next Monday afternoon
at three o’clock. This is an inter- j
denoininaional bible class conducted
by the pastor of the Presbyterian ;
church, every fall and winter, until !
we have gone through the whole |
bible together. The object or aim
of this class is a systematic study of
the bible by books—the author, the j
time or circumstance under which
the book is written, contemporary
bible history, an outline of each
book, the practical bearing of these
books upon conduct and life. No
book in the bible without its place
and special message. The books of
the bible are best understood and
most appreciated when road in their
historical and chronological connec
tion. Like the stones of a great
building, each book has its place and
mission, and stands in support of the
whole structure of God’s revelation
of Himself unto us in His word
i God’s word is one. The scriptures
! are unbroken. The goal of the bible
student is to arrive at a clearer tin
derstanding of the whole revelation
1 of God—a believing and working
.knowledge of the w uole bibie as we
i have it. With its added refinements
■ and culture along the way. this is
the goal of the Woman’s Bible Class.
A personal study of the word of God
in order to understand its refine
ments. its lifting power and comfort
in mir livp« It wmilil seem that in
an age like ours no noe could afford
to be ignorant of his bible. There
are many people who read the book
now and then, but not many who are
studying it with system and devotion.
Space forbids to speak of the value
; of such a class as this, both in
. terms of now and the future years,
when perhaps nothfng shall be left
to some of us but the word of God
and prayer. No book shall so tell
upon your life, upon your home and
family, or upon your age. as this one
It is food, it is drink, it is inspira
tion, it is the only guide to success
ful living for both worlds. It is the
one library open to us all every day
of our lives. Will we slight or neg
lect this for other books? God will
see to it that we do not come into
the enjoyment of its blessings. Rev.
22:18-19 The bible is a book to be
studied, not merely read. Jos. 1:7-8;
2 Tim. 2:15.
We are now entering upon the
third term of this class. Thus far
the class has finished the Penta
teuch, the first five books of the
bible. I.ast fall we studied the sec
ond division of bible literature -
the twelve historical books. The
class begins this fall with the book
of Job and continues (if we have
time) through the Prophets to the
New Testament. The class will meet
! twice a month Reading lessons are
; assigned, followed by class meeting
and lecture on same. Nobody will
be embarassed by questions. No doc
trinal differences discussed A it^ay.
erful atmosphere and a fine spirit of
Christian friendship and fellowship
This class is open to all who would
like to study with us this winter.
Start at the beginning. Start next
Monday at 3:30 p. m. I hope we will
have a good opening and a most en
couraging start.
