In a letter to every county and community committecman in Alabama, the Slate committee .slated thai this crop will do as much as aiiy other toward making the Alabama plan contribute to the [ullest . extent tc the program of Alabama ; agriculture. ! The State committee is composed . of W. B. Crawley, chairman. Banks; ' L. S. Fluker. Livingston: H. H. ' Whittle, Jacksonville; J. M. Jones. New Market. P. O. Davis, director of Extension and a member nf the committee: and A. W. Jones, administrative officer and secretary of the committee. The letter from the Slate ccm- mitteenien pointed out that every Alabama farmer participating in the AAA program should consider seriously now the addition of oais to his fall planting plans.

"For that reason we wouM like to impress upon yo'.l and your neighbors the importance of saving seed and the importance of farmers supplying their neighbors with oat seed this fall. "We of the State committee feel, and we believe you feel the same, that it is our responsibility as elected representatives of oiir fellow farmers to stress to them the importance of oats, to urge that more seed be saved, and that we and other farmers who have oat seed make them available to other formers. Agricultural leaders at Auburn tell iis that oats seem to be one of the best grain crops and that failures with this crop are much fewer than with corn." The letter continued: "We want the Alabama plan to be successful on every farm in Alabama. We believe It can contribute greatly to the program of farming In this State. For this reason and many others we would like to urge that you join in this plan to 'save and plant more oats' and urge your neighbors Join also." to Coxswain Eeiet By New Perils (Continued From Editorial P«je) Feeding Of Grain Will Keep' Output Up Secretary of Agriculture Clnucle R. Wickarri has appealed lo liir people of Ihe United States to le- ; duce their consumption of chrr>r in '• order that more of that food may | be available to Great Britain :u:d • other naticns resisting .-ii^yression. At the same time he suggested an increase in cheese production hv about onc-tliirri and evaporated m j;k production by about one-fouiih. "In this connection," Secretary Wickard salrl. "proriiicers should increase Ihe feeding cf grain tn dmry cattle. Ample supplies of grain are available because of the reserves in ; the ever-normal granary and the i feeding of grain will help ronipcn- ; sate lor the dry weather that has damaged pastures in some sections of the country. The feeding of grain ' will help keep production at hipher i levels in the months of July and August when production ordinarily ' declines."

Landing Just off Spurn Head, the crew of five look to their rubber life raft and began sending up location signals with their colored SOS flares. Cross saw the signals and began telephoning around the peninsula to h! s men. They all met at the boat in loss than ten minutes. After five minutes of easy going through a sea which that morning was as smooth as the lake in New York's Central Park, they spotted the five-man crew of that German bomber. They were about one mile away and Cross could see the young German boys bobbing around, keep- Ing with the tide by gentle pulls on the two short but very strong and light melal oars which Is the equipment of every Nazi life raft. It was probably those metal oars which did it. says Cross. The metal attracted .1 magnetic mine which had been dropped the night before. .There was a terrific explosion— and then it was no longer, or .any "use for Robert, Cross and his crew of six [o continue on.

EXPERT FOR 6-8-4 The Corporation now holds title to 6,110,662 bales of cotton, which were produced almost entirely In the years : 1934 and 1937. Thc Corporation also I lias $165.718,578.43 In leans outstand- i ing on 3,308,703 bales of cotton of ! t!ie 1938. 1939, and 1940 crops. It is i possible, says the announcement. j that the Government, may find it I desirable lo take title on August 1, ! 1941, to any cotton remaining pledg- ' ed to secure nctes which arc over- weeds the better.

Even Ihe sweeps which run in the lar to cutting hay and hauling it to the barn. Recently this clover was thrashed with a combine and the 1,600 pounds of clean clover seed saved. These seed will probably sell at from 10 lo 15 cents per pound this fall or 40 to 60 dollars per acre. This compares very favorably with the returns from cotton and involves considerably less labor. Another interesting thing about crimson clover Is that it will prc- duce more seed per acre in this section than any other winter legume. Each acre Mr. Norton saved seed from this year produced enough i seed to sow 25 or 30 acres this fall. ' • middle should not be permitted to go much deeper, because this time of year the root systems cf boih cotton and corn extend over the entire field area. It is much better to take the necessary time and be sure your plows are set correctly before starting cultivation this time of year than it is to rush at the job and half kill your crops by plowing.

This amount was made up of nearly $10,500,000 earned by reducing acreages of cotton and peanuts and by soil building practices, and about $8,500,000 in cotton parity payments. Better Gardens Will Improve Rural Health Alabama gardeners are going to get. a bonus this year, according to W. A. ftuffin, home garden specialist of the Alabama Extension Service. Auburn, who pointed out that the |3 in AAA payments available under the supplementary cotton program will prove especially helpful to farm families In obtaining a larger variety of garden seed, spray equipment ai?d other material. The supplementary cotton program payment. Ruffin said, is in addition to the $1.50 per garden p payment already available to farm- I ers carrying out conservation prac- ' tlces. . If this land is not fertile enough manure should be broadcast and disced into the soil Immediately after turning. Crushed limestone-should be applied at the rate of 3 or 4 tons per acre. At thc next discing.which will be necessary to control grass and weeds, 1,000 to 1,500 pounds per acre cf basic slag should be applied together with 100 pounds of muriate of potash. This slag and potash should be disced in about the middle of August. Alfalfa seed should be sown following the first good rain in September. It Is usually a gcod idea to disc this prepared land again at the time the alfalfa is to be planted, and then harrow with a section harrow, sow the seed and then run a culli- packer over it. Farmers who have followed this procedure and who have planted alfalfa on fertile, well-drained, and non-sandy types of soil have found that they can get yields of around 3 tons of alfalfa hay per acre per year over a period of about 5 years. It Is absolutely necessary that alfalfa land be correctly prepared, fallowed, and fertilized In order lo have a gcod stand and insure continued production over a period of years.
