1 if 1 h 1 Irrigation Changes Production Pattern Irrigation brngs big changes In farm production patterns, says Russell Herpteh, Kansas State University irrigation engineer, who has helped Kansas quadruple her irrigated acres (from 250,000 to more than 1 million acres) during the last 10 years. In Kansas most irrigation farmers have either started or expanded livestock production, particularly with beef and hogs, while many produce specialty crops such as apples, peaches, sugar beets, black-eyed peas, melons, beans, cabbage and root crops. High yields in Kansas under irrigation are 150 to 160 bushels per acrt* of grain sorghum, 130 to 140 bushels of corn, 33 tons of corn silages, and 50 to 60 bushels of soybeans per acre. "Those kind of yields go hand-in-hand with livestock programs," Herpich says. CAB Delays Airline Request WASHINGTON (AP)—The Civil Aeronautics board declined to give Hi-Plains Airways an immediate temporary permit to operate a shuttle air service linking smaller cities in Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Nebraska and the Dakotas. Hi-Plains also has applied for a. regular certificate for the same service. The CAB said it will not be an undue burden on Hi-Plains to wait for a decision. That decision will be forthcoming soon. " The board also said the 17 cites Hi-Plains seeks to servj are on the certified routes of other airlines and 16 have service. More than 700,000 of the irr- gabed Kansas acres are in Southwestern Kansas but irrigation facilities have been completed or nearly completed below four of five huge dams serving Kansas farmers — K a n s a s-Bostwick, Kirwin, Webster, Almena and Cedar Bluffs. With irrigation even wheat helps produce livestock, Herpidi said, because water insures lux- urient fall and spring wheat pasture besides grain yields. The increased meat production, plus specialty crops, bring associated processing, packing and marketing industries that are tremendously important to the economic development of the state, Herpich said. Plan Cowman's Clinic At Hays College Farm Kansans interested in cow herd management have been issued a special invitation to attend a Cowman's Clinic at the Ft. Hays College farm, Hays, October 19.

BE THEN COMES THE RUSH HOUR ON THE JOB BUCKING'THE CROWD LIKE A SALMON 60IN6 UPSTREAM Over the Backyard Fence By ELSIE BRANDEN Home Economics Agent Highlighting the October plentiful food list are several foods. Apples, brciler-fryers and cheese with other foods on the market in supplies in excess of normal trade needs and likely to be among the most economical buys include frozen orange juice, cranberries, pears, potatoes, turkeys and rice. We have an excellent bulletin in the Extension Office on buying apples. The bulletin is free for asking, so pick up a copy today. Many convenience foods, including frozen concentrated orange 'juices, canned chicken chow meiin and instant coffee can save homemakers both time and money. Comparing costs of convenience foods with comparable home-prepared items showed that out of 158 items studied, 42 were less expensive and 116 were more expensive than their home-prepared counterparts. The typical housewife buys enough of the nuney saving items so that her total food bill is smaller than if she bought only fresh items to be prepared in her own kitchen. For example, 68c of each $100 spent on food in the grocery store goes for frozen orange juice concentrate. An equal amount of fresh orange juice prepared in the home could cost $1.39. More efficient. use of the crop, less cost of storage and transportation, account for the less expensive frozen juice. Tlie greatest cost difference found in the studies was between instant coffee and that made from regular ground roast coffee. One dollar of every hundred spent on food by housewives is spent on instant coffee. The same number of servings from regular coffee would cost $1.96. F r ozen chicken chow mcin costs 85c for four servings and the canned product costs 66c./The I same number of servings of the ! home-prepared product would j cost $1.02. Fresh ready-to-serve yeast rolls account for 10.6c out of every $100 spent t,n food, while the ingredients to make an equal quantity of yeast rolls, at home would cost 3.4c. Sour cream can a-*' zest to those dozens of dishes at you prepare every day. This dairy product gives a taste treat to fresh or canned fruit. A swirl of sour cream in soups is another suggestion. Fruit pics become a great delicacy with sour cream added. Sour cream may also*be used with salads, fish, steaks and Pot roasts. Why not try some today? With chickens a particularly ! good buy, why not make up some ! chicken a la king? Make a large | or double recipe and freeze a i portion. A recipe callii.g for I three pints of diced coohct'. chick' en makes 16 servings. Serve on | biscuits, hot buttered toast, or in timbales. Quickly cool the amount you plan to freeze after it is cooked. Leave space for expansion as you pack Hi containers one-half inch in straight, tall one and one- fourth inch in low broad containers. Pint boxes or jars are best for two reasons. The chicken a | la king freezes and thaws more quickly in the smaller containers which is a safety factor against food poisoning. To prepare the frozen food for serving, remove from the box or jar and without thawing put in a double boiler top. It takes about 30 minutes to thaw and heat a pint of frozen chicken a la king. Here's a menu suggestion. Serve the chicken dish with asparagus, salad, and upside-down cake for dessert.

Many farmers have milo ready to cut, [>ut either they aren't ready to cut it or it's been too wet. The weather hasn't been too favorable for grain drying- Also, it has presented a problem when it comes to planting wheat but has been beneficial in others. Some of the benefits are — good moisture to plant so the emergence will be soon and the ground won't blow if there is moisture to turn up; also the later date of planting is one of the methods to help prevent a Dry Beans Out 200 Kansas 4-H'ers To American Royal Kansas 4-H club members, 150 official delegates and several small groups will Join 4-H'ers from Missouri, Oklahoma, Iowa and Arkansas in Kansas City October 14 to 16 for the annual American Roval 4-H Club Conference. In addition to the delegates, chosen and sponsored by their counties, the state wheat award winner, county wheat award win• ners, three state poultry cham- j pions, a state blue ribbon group j in the home improvement project I and a part of the state health I club will take part in special pro| grams and. a part of the Conference schedule Farm Surplus Meets Needs Farm commodities acquired by the Department of Agriculture in its price-support and surplus-removal operations are being used effectively in meeting the food requirements of the Nation, Gilbert W. Egbert, chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation state committee, said today. The commodities are made available through the Department's direct distribution program to schools and charitable institutions in this country and to needy persons both here and abroad. As reported by the Department for fiscal year 1962, record food donations at home and overseas totaled more than 4.7 billion pounds — almost 30 per cent greater than the previous year's high of 3.7 billion pounds. The cost of donated commodities to all outlets during the past year totaled $590.2 million, also a 30- per cent increase over the previous year's figure. In this country, donations to families in need increased some 60 per cent to reach ;•. total of 1.4 billion pounds in the year ended June 30, 1982. Peak number of recipients w r as reached in March, when 7.4 million persons shared in the distribution. Other recipients of the commodities included schools serving lunches to children, charitable institutions, victims of hurricanes and similar natural disusters in 16 states and Puerto Rico, and migrant farm workers and their families. Donations of 2.7 billion pounds of food for foreign needy as part, of the Food for Peace program were distributed by U. S. voluntary relief agencies and intergovernmental organizations in more than 100 friendly foreign countries. U. S. to Pull Out Troops WASHINGTON CAP)—The United States plans to withdraw the 3,000 American troops still in Thailand, State Department officials report. No date was set but the officials said Tuesday the withdrawal will not take place until after more discussions with the Thai government and will depend on the status of Communist forces in eigh- boring Laos. If activity of the Communist forces shows a need for renewed vigilance, the officials said, the American battle group and supporting air squadrons will continue their patrol activities and possibly be reinforced. Only about 10 per cent of the 1%1-crop dry beans acquired under the price-support program .ire still available in the Commodity Credit Corporation inventory for sale, donation or distribution through other outlets, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has reported. More than 3 million hundredweight of 1961-crop beans were taken over under the support program, and over 2.7 million hundredweight have been scheduled for movement. This leaves about 364,000 hundredweight in CCC inventory for sale or movement into other outlets.. Department officials have said that if tlie 1962 crop outturn reaches current expectations, disposition of this remaining quantity will be made through other than domestic commercial channels, primarily in Food for Peace outlets. About 800,000 hundredweight of the beans are now moving into domestic donation channels through tlie school lunch program and welfare agencies and to charitable institutions; in addition, about 550,000 hundredweight are earmarked to fill needs for thase outlets in the months ahead. About 750,000 hundredweight have been scheduled for donation to needy people abroad through U.S. voluntary welfare agencies under the Food for Peace program; and approximately 378,000 hundredweight have been sold into commercial channels for domestic use and export. From Tex By Tex Demuth Assistant County Agent mosaic disease problem this year. The problem of harvesting tie milo is one that all farmers can expect. It seems like every time a good crop has been raised, there are several hazards to prevent a successful harvest. The milo looks real good this year. In the past two weeks, I've traveled into Eastern Kansas and Eastern Oklahoma. In a visual comparison from traveling automobile, the milo in Finney County is second to none. The milo looks real good and has possibilities of being a bumper crop this year. Along the 4-H front this week there are such events as olrction and installation of new officers, achievement banquets, and the enrollment of members, both old and new, in the respective projects that they plan to take this year in 4-H. The 4-H enrollment of the past year, 1962-1963, was 402 club City Telegram Thursday, October 11, 1962 members which was a drop from ' be. the previous year.' The enrollment in 1960-19G1 was 490. This year the enrollment of the clubs could be increased if each and every one of the present 4-H members would ask one of their friends or fellow students if they would like to join. Nrjt everyone wllj receive a positive answer but if one out of ten would get a new 4-H'er, this would mean 40 new members. If you are interested In 4-H and would like to join a club, call the Finney County Extension Office and ask to speak to either Kenneth Fromm, the county aigent, Elsie Brandon, Home economics agent or Tex Demuth the assistant county agent. We would be more than glad to talk with you and explain the 4-H program. The 4-H program in Finney County is way below its potential in nrollment. The county has a possibility of 800-plus 4-H members. This many members would open up a whole new phase of 4-H and would lead to more projects with a very active 4-H Council. Wn would like to encourage al] 4-H'ers and everyone who is interested in 4-H to help raise the number of members this year. The more 4-H'ers the bigger and better the programs wffl THIS SIMPLE cattle grubs with MoorManV R1D-EZY ^•No bothersome, costly individual treatment to upset cattle and interrupt ' gains. ; > Rid cattle of grubs before they have a chance to irritate cattle . . . slow gains . . . damage carcasses and hides. successfully since 1960.
