Rainbow 4-H ? ers Care For Early-Day Cemetery IMPROVEMENT — Kathryn Houston, member of Rainbow 4-H Club places shrub in early-day cemetery in club's project of history preservation. Khrush's Grandchildren Would Have Cancer, Too By JOHN HARBOUR AP Science Writer NEW YORK (AP)-Is the radi- •lion-bearing fallout from Soviet nuclear tests powerful enough to cause cancer?

For children as yet un- By KATHRYN HOUSTON Rainbow 4-H Club The Rainbow 4-H Club is helping preserve the pioneer spots of the county by taking care of an early day cemetery as part of its community service activity. Part of a 4-H members activity program each year is doing something to improve or help the community in which they live. Members learn in this way that it is part of their responsibility as a citizen to work together to make the community in which they live a community to be proud of. Rainbow members selected the cemelery project in 1956, and it is a continuous program. The cemetery, which is north of Lane on the Houston farm, was entirely covered and surrounded with trees and brush. The rail fence no longer was doing the job for which it was intended. The first year's work was cutting and burning brush, spraying weeds and a general cleanup. In 1957, members fenced the area as the next step in renovating it. This spring and fall, members have been planting perennials, such as iris, spring flowering bulbs and peonies to make the place more beautiful. The markers had fallen over and some of them were broken. Repairing and resetting the stones also was a part of the work done this year. The oldest marked grave is that of John Hunter, who died July 20, 1863. The olher seven marked graves are those of the John and Rachel Harvey and the J. S. and S. A. Foster families and a J. D. Myres.

The government had a lien on his 1954 crop claiming he had a quota of nine acres that year and raised wheat on 28 acres. The farmer's feud was climaxed with the dumping of the 97 1/3 bushels of wheat on the sidewalk. The rest spoiled, he said.

By DON BROWN Farmers who divert more than the minimum 10 per cent of their acreage to conservation uses under the 1961 wheat stabilization program will not lose wheat acreage history by such action, Gilbert W. Egbert, chairman, stale Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation committee, said today. His statement was issued in an attempt to clear up any possible misunderstanding of program provisions by farmers. E g b e r t explained that the wheat stabilization p r o- gram provides that full history credit be given producers on a 1 1 t h e acreage they divert under the p r o- gram. This history credit will apply in the establishment of all future farm, county and state wheat allotments. A similar provision now applies to wheat acreage history on farms retired under the conservation Reserve anc Great Plains programs. The 1962 allotments sent to wheat producers by county ASC offices before the recent market- in? quota referendum reflected a 10 per cent diversion in wheat acreage — subsequently to be devoted to an approved conserve- THE OTTAWA HERALD Friday, October 27, 1961 While the walnut crop is down this year the quality is good.

Marketing quota penalties were increased by Congress for the 1962 wheat crop. Farmers who comply with the wheat stabilization program will be eligible to receive price support on their 1962 wheat crop as well as payments for the diverted acreage. Walnut hullers have been located in six eastern Kansas cities jy one company and another com- sany is placing hullers in other ocations, Harold Gallaher, ex :ension forester at Kansas State University, informs me.

The Gravel- te Shelling company, Gravette, Ark., is Ihe other walnut buyer moving into Kansas locations. Gallaher said Ihis provides farm families an opportunity to increase their incomes. An afternoon spent gathering nuts this fall may be very profitable. Almost every farm in eastern Kansas has some walnut trees, he added. Prices this fall are expected to be about $2.50 per 100 pounds for Delay Crying Woman Case SALINA, Kan. (AP)-The windup of Salina's celebrated police court case—the issue is how you tell a crying drunk woman from a crying sober woman—has been put off until next week. Judge Lou Tickel set the resumption of testimony for 1:30 p. m. next Tuesday. He had planned lo hear it out Thursday but there was a conflict with other court business. Mrs. Shirley Thomas is being tried on a charge of being drunk on the street. The charge was dismissed after an earlier hearing but was revived when Mrs. Thomas signed a letter to City Commissioner Harry banker accusing the police of arresting her illegally.

Cooperators may divert additional wheat acreage under program, receive large payments. Any wheat acreage diverted under the program must be in addition to the normal conserving acreage on the farm.

"The unprecedented fallout occasioned by the Soviet Union's irresponsible testing of weapons could very well present a degree of exposure beyond critical limits for safety," he stated.

Otherwise, they won't get into production as early or give as much milk once they start milking. Tests indicate heifers which are seriously underfed may not come into heat until they're 18 to 20 months old, whereas well-fed heifers may begin about 8 or 10 months. Even after they freshen, cows won't produce as well as their inheritance would permit had they been fed well-balanced rations as heifers. REDUCE WINTER SOIL EROSION in corn fields. On fields which are subject to erosion, USDA agronomists have been able to cut soil losses in half by chopping corn stalks in the fall after picking.. Shredded stalks are much more effective in absorbing the impact from rainfall. Furthermore, sliredding aids in decomposition of the stalks and makes plowing easier next spring. AVOID LOSSES AT FARROWING. Now is a n especially critical time of year. The weather's not extremely cold but any time the temperature in farrowing quarters drops below 40 or 45 degrees, there's a chance the young pigs may become chilled. Better get those heat, lamps out and place them 30 inches above the bedding of the farrowing stall over the area occupied by the pigs so they'll be there when you need them. COST OP HEATING LIVESTOCK WATER FOUNTAINS can be minimized by placing the waterer in a well-protected location. Also, insulate waterers well with fiberglass and cover unneeded portions. By using the lower thermostat setting of about 45 degrees, you can save about 2-3 the electricity required at 60 degrees.
