Although enrolment figures for Mississippi County nre not available to date because some have sent their entries into (he Commercial Appeal instead of the county agents' offices, il Is known thai last year's figure of 1779 has already been exceeded. The trim now is "more than 2500" and the negroes, have cooperated greatly by enrolling- more than 1500 families. : The Increased enrolment is believed to be partially due to the Interest be'lng taken in Mississippi County since the Courier News entered Into K co-spoi^orshin with the Commercial Appeal, according lo Ihe extension agents.

The contest is simple—prizes arc awarded lo farm families which make Ihe best job this; year of living at home, diversifying their crops, conserving their soil, improving their homes and s)iccial improvement projects.

Cites Convictions Under AAA Statute soil-building practices, up to the maximum assistance available for the farm. The method of computing the maximum soil-building assistance Is explained in the Slate AAA Handbook, a copy of which Is available to every farmer. Each farmer can C£l;jnalc the maximum amount he can earn under the AAA Program in 1940 from his Individual Farm, Plan sheet, which ho irtny work mil with the assistance of his local AAA committee. In the first case Involving cotton •under the AAA Program, provisions of the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1938 which will govern 1940 marketings of cotton were upheld by a federal judge in Norlh Carolina and len defendants lined $25 each, according to information received by E. B. chiles, chairman of the county AAA Committee, from J. D, Dan|els, stale administrative officer ol the AAA. In the case the defendants pleaded gtiilty to charges ol aiding and abetting evasion of penalties incurred on marketing cotton In excess of their marketing quoins. In addition to the fines, the court ordered the defendants to pay approximately $4,500 lo the counly committee In unpaid penalties'. This decision, Mr. Chiles said, is of great significance lo farmers who nave volcd for and will use marketing miolas tor 1910. The way is now cleared' lo enforce the law against any person who has sought or will attempt lo evade provisions and penalties of marketing ((iiolas for colton. Coopcrators can be assured that they will have Ihc full protection ot Ihc law In eltorts to obtain better income and avoid wasteful surpluses. Mr. Chiles urged farmers and business men who are In doubt about their responsibility under the marketing qviota provisions lo con- stilt their county agricultural conservation committee lor lurthcr information. Although there have been 110 such cases brought before the courts of Arkansas, Mr. Chiles concluded, Ihe quota provisions of (he farm program will be enforced by both civil aim criminal action if ever ncccssnrv.

They're just new here. Many northern mtirkets have been handling edible soybeans for several years. They. are said lo be extremely rich In ' protein, Iron, phosphorus and calcium. Those are elements needed for health. They ore low in carbohydrates and nre n good source of vitamins A, B, and G. Those who have already sampled the new .soybeans are enthusiastic over the pleasant tnstc. The canning 'company is offering sugges- Itons for preparing the beans including recipes for soybean salad. soybean loaf, soybeans Southern style, and baked. Just like any other beiins, Since ihcy are already coOKid In Ihe can Ihey iniiy he eaten simply by healing and seasoning with ull, anrl pepper. Mississippi county farmers should be particularly interested in . tills crop, Mr, Greb pointed out, since the edible variety of .soybeans offers n DEW source of income foi growers. The edible variety brings the farmer $3.00 per hundred pounds ns compared to approximately $1.00 per hundred for common soybeans. And they arc Just as easy to • grow. They are great soil builders, putting nitrogen back In the land. Another advantage in growing edible soybejns^ is that II the farmer produces a surplus which he cannot market at higher price the beans can be sold at the mill for regular purposes just ns Ihe ordinary beans. The nearest soybean mill Is located at Osceola. Mr. Clrcb snlcl about 300 acres were put In the edible variety College Of Agriculture Tells Of Activities To Improve Homes — '!
