UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE LESLIE HUDDLE STON POST No. 12, AMERICAN LEGION, HOPE, ARKANSAS BOLL WEEVIL THIS SEASON WORSE THAN EVER BEFORE Special to The News. Little Rock, June 30.—Correspond ents of the Bureau of Crop Estimates agree generally that “there are 20 boll weevils this season where there was 1 last.” That the pest will be unusually destructive this year is cer tain and already in some sections, farmers are beginning to plow up their cotton fields. The area of in festation is about 50% of the total otton acreage of the state. Gener ally speaking, it forms a “V” in the southern half of the state, running in an irregular line from the southern boundary of Polk county, northeast to Van Buren county, thence south east down the Arkansas river valley, with special areas of infestation in Lonoke and Phillips counties. It ap pears to be most destructive along he Arkansas river. “KLOSED” Our store will be closed all day Monday, July 4th, to give our employees an opportunity to take part in the American Legion celebration at Hope.

WOULD ASCERTAIN FACTS REGARDING OIL SITUATION Little Rock, June 30.—State Bank ; Commissioner* W. T. Maxwell deliv - ered an address yesterday before the Lions Club on the subject of oil, in which he offered the following sug gestion: “I invite you gentlemen, individu ally and as a club if you will, to join in a request to the proper department of our national government that it supply an agent or officer qualified and with full authority to ascertain the physical facts in respect to the proven territory recently opened, so that not only our people, but our neighbors far and near, who care to invest with us in the production and refining may be advised with as near an exactness as it is reasonably prac ticable as to attractions offered for investment. I assume, I am not out of order in making this request and shall anticipate your hearty co-opera tion toward the assembling of any information as to Arkansas' latest asset acquisition. “I think it exceedingly fortunate that our own state has proven itself the actual possessor of large deposits of oil. Large production has already been developed and is at this time ready for market in Union county and much activity is in progress not only in that county but in Columbia, Oua chita, Drew, Cleveland, Poinsett, White, Greene and Independence coun ties.” CORN ANI) HAY CROPS OF ARKANSAS ARE GOOD Little Rock, June 30.—The agricul tural department reports that corn ind hay crops are very good.

The cantaloupe crop is also very good, although not equal to last year. A good advertisement for Prescott and her progressive populace is the anti-mosquito campaign which is 'in progress.
