Monday, September 2:$, H>/4 S?AR Page Seven Speaking of Agriculture By CALVIN J>CALfoWELL County Extension Agent Growing a cool- ahd Warm- season grass on the same pasture helps to maximize land utilization and cut winter feed costs. If planted separately, about fifty per cent more land is required to carry the same number of cattle due to the long dormant period of each grass when no grazing is provided. Near year-round grazing can be achieved with fescue and bermuda, and because they grow best at different times of the year, they may be grown on the same pasture if good management practices are followed. When grown together, these grasses also make better use of soil moisture and available plant food. Remember that fertilization program must be adjusted for two grasses instead of just one. Managing fescue and ber- muda on the same pasture is more difficult than managing them on separate pastures, but it can be done successfully. The following suggestions should increase chances of success. In late September or early October: 1. Remove existing bermuda by close grazing or mowing. 2. Apply lime and fertilizer in establishing fescue in ac- cordance to soil test results. 3. Scarify soil with light disking for good seedsoil contact if seed are to be broadcast. 4. Drill or broadcast five to eight pounds of fescue and two pounds of white clover per acre. 5. Where fescue and-or clover seed are broadcast, cover seed lightly (V4 to Vfe inch) with disk, harrow or drag. Lespedeza or crimson clover may be seeded as alternate legumes; however, both have shorter production seasons than white clover. White clover will produce more forage during January and February than will crimson. If crimson is used, cattle should be removed in late April to allow reseeding. a. Rotate grazing - graze bermuda down every three weeks - fescue should be grazed down every two weeks. b. Do not defer graze until September. c. Remove excessive growth in May and September. d. Scatter manure droppings when necessary. e. Remove mature growth from ungrazed spots by close mowing. Proper mixture of fescue and bermuda can be maintained by alternating the fertilization dates to favor the grass that needs to be increased. Visiting teams pick district farm families The 28th annual Arkansas Farm Family of the Year recognition program has moved a step closer to the finals now that eight district farm families have been chosen by visiting teams from 73 county finalists. District families that were awarded top honors by the visiting teams are: Southwest District, Martin Stanley Family of Ozan, Hempstead County, North Central District, Edmond-"Ziegenhorn Family of McCrory, Woodruff County, Northeast District, Jesse McDermott Family of Parkin, Cross County, Northwest District, Gene Russell Family of Tontitown, Washington County, Southeast District, Jimmy Lee Buford Family of McGehee, Desha County, Western District, Phillip Smith Family of Mena, Polk County, West Central District, George Harwood Family of Morrilton, Conway County, East Central District, Dale Dicks Family of Des Arc, Prairie County. Beginning the week of October 7, another visiting team will visit the eight first place district families to select the 1974 Arkansas Farm Family of the Year. The top family will be announced December 6 at a luncheon meeting in the Camelot Inn at Little Rock. Families from all participating counties will be invited to the awards luncheon. The teams who select the finalists are composed of representatives of the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service, the USDA agencies, Arkansas Power- Light Company, and the State Department of Education. The program is sponsored by Arkansas Power & Light Company and the Arkansas Press Association, with the cooperation of the Extension Service, the Farmers Home Administration, Soil Conservation Service, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service, State Department of Education-Vocational Agriculture and Home Economics. "The Farm Family o* the Year program has been a vehicle for recognizing more than two thousand outstanding farm families in all counties throughout the State," according to C.R. Sawrie, Manager, Market Planning for AP&L. "Selection is based on efficient utilization of farm resources, sound home management,, and % . : .community leadership." Last year's top farm family was the Don Oliver family of Stuttgart in Arkansas County. Blytheville marshal shot BLYTHEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — A suspect was in custody Sunday in the shooting death of City Marshal Kenneth Gilmore of Dyess. No charge had been filed, a Blytheville police spokesman said. Gilmore was killed and his estranged wife, Sue, was wounded during an apparent family fight, authorities said. Mississippi County deputies said they got a telephone call from a woman early Saturday who said she was calling from the Gilmore residence. Deputies said the woman tried to say something, but then a gun shot was heard and the phone went dead. Officers said Gilmore had been shot once through the heart with his own gun, a 357- magnun pistol. Mrs. Gilmore was shot with a .22-caliber pistol, deputies said. CLIMBING CARS PRAGUE (AP) - If cars followed the newly published plan for Pilsen, the hometown of famous Pilsner beer, they would have to climb steps, the local daily complained. The main throughway according to the plan leads through a street which is a blind alley, ending with a flight of stairs. 7 die in accidents By The Associated Press Arkansas traffic accidents took the lives of seven persons during the weekend. State Police said a woman was killed in an accident west of Hot Springs on U.S. 70 Sunday. Her name was being with- hled pending notification of her family. Three persons were killed early Sunday when the car in which they were riding went out of control on a curve and struck a culvert along U.S. 167 near Batesville, State Police said. The victims were identified as Johnny Grubbs, 24, Joan Grubbs, 22, and Mitchell R. MilUgan, 21, all of the Batesville area.

(AP) One man was killed and another was wounded in a shooting spree at a service station near here Sunday, authorities said. Dead is Charles Person, 49, of Arkoma, Okla. A spokesman for Sparks Regional Medical Center in Fort Smith said Norval Nielson, 50, of Alma, the service station operator, was in serious condition Sunday night. She said Nielson's condition was fairly stable and that he was in the intensive care unit. Authorities had a Fort Smith man in custody Sunday night, but no charge had been filed. After the shooting, the suspect allegedly stole a pickup truck, kidnaped two hunters and threatened to kill them before he was captured, State Police said. Sheriff Bill Vickery of Crawford County said Person and the suspect drove a pickup iruck into the station about 7:10 a.m. and that the suspect shot Person, who was driving, and then kicked him out of the truck. The sheriff said it was not known yet whether Nielson heard the shots and came to investigate and was shot or whether one of the bullets that killed Person struck Nielson. The. suspect then allegedly drove the truck north on Arkansas 59 and turned off on Ar- knsas 220 where he wrecked the truck near Cove City in Crawford County, Vickery said. "Two hunters heard the wreck and came to help him," Lt. Ken McFerran of the State Police said. "But he forced them to lake him in their truck on down the highway." A spokesman for the sheriff's office, however, said three hunters were involved. The spokesman explained that one hunter first became involved then the other two showed up. McFerran said the suspect fired several shots in the roof of the truck, but the hunters were not harmed. "When they got to the Washington-Crawford county line, he had them' stop '"arid 'rharChetf' them into the woods and threatened to kill them," McFerran said. "They knew he would kill them, and so they took a chance and jumped him, and it was successful." Hundreds of bodies burned SAN PEDRO SULA, Hon* dufas (AP) — Rescue workers are burning the dead left by Hurricane Fifi in northeast Honduras to prevent outbreaks of disease adding to the toll of one of the worst catastrophes in Central American history. As refugees began straggling back to their devastated towns and villages and relief supplies started to arrive from abroad, officials said at least 5,000 bodies had been found. They estimated this toll would double when all reports were in. They said the storm, which hit the region with winds of 110 to 130 miles an hour and torrential rains on Thursday night, drove 150,000 persons from their homes, wiped out most of the banana crop and virtually destroyed the cities of Choloma, Omoa and Trujillo. Floodwaters turned the rich Ulua River valley from San Pedro Sula to the coast into a lake 20 miles wide at some points. Thousands of persons were reported still stranded on rooftops or in trees, but a shortage of helicopters and fuel delayed their rescue. Col. Ruben Villanueva of the National Emergency Relief Committee said damage from the storm was estimated at $1.0 billion in the San Pedro Sula region alone. An executive of United Brands, one of the two major producers of bananas, the country's chief export, estimated that 90 per cent of the crop was destroyed. President Oswaldo Lopez Arellano flew over the flooded area on Sunday and told newsmen the situation was "terribly sad." He made a new appeal for food, clothes, medicine and vaccines. The first planeloads of emergency aid, including a complete field hospital from Cuba, arrived at nearby La Lima airport on Sunday. U.S. Air Force C130 transports brought boats, lifejackets, food, drinking water and other emergency supplies from the Panama Canal Zone. The United States also has sent trucks and helicopters, desperately needed in the search for stranded persons. Mexico sent 10 planes. Costa Rica's minister of health brought a field hospital. Venezuela, El Salvador and Guatemala sent medical aid and rescue workers.
