!i Signup Near The signup under the special voluntary 1963 wheat program will open soon, Gilbert W. Eg- b e r t, Chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation state committee, has announced. The program — authorized by legislation enacted September 27 -*• includes diversion payments similar to those in effect for the 1962 wheat crop and a new fea- \ ture of price-support payments i on the normal production of par! ticipators' 1963 wheat acreage. The signup will continue until December 14 for farms growing winter wheat. ] Under the voluntary reduction i provisions of the 1963 wheat stabilization program, farmers will Tips From Tex By Tex Demuth Assistant County Agent Garden City Experiment Sta-1 tion has reported an infestation of Hession fly in tlie northern j part of Finney County and the j southwestern part of'Scott Coun- j ty. ..The Hessian fly.was first reported in a few eastern counties of-Kansas in 1871, a little less thain 100 years after it had been brought into this country by the rtesslan soldiers during the Revolutionary War. It has spread westward in recurring outbreaks at intervals of 5 to 10 years until it now has been reported from all Kansas counties except a few in the extreme southwest. Each outbreak of Hessian fly often has cost tlie state $50,000,000, or more. The last sever e outbreak occurred from 1942 to 1945. The best-known damage done by the Hessian fly is the breaking over of culms somewhat before harvest time. Their flax-1 seed is to be found where the | break occurs. Many culms in- j tested by flaxseed do not break j over. Heads carried on the culms i yield 25 to 30 per cent less than heads on uninfested culms. In the fall the Hessian fly kills tillers and young plants. This damage may be identified by finding the flaxseed r larvae at the base of dead plants or tillers. Fall damage results in a thinner stand that may be mistaken | for winter injury. The white larvae and the brown flaxseed are the stages most frequently found. •The adult Hessian fly lives for such a short time that it is seen rarely. • _Control of Hessian flics is Pre- .vention. Once flies Infest a crop,' lliey cannot be destroyed by any known way until after harvest. Early plowing of wheat stubble .is the first step to prevent infes- tation of the new crop. This step in control is especially practical in eastern and central Kansas. The destruction of all volunteer wheat as soon as it sprouts prevents infestation of th. volunteer and increase of flies during summer. The destruction of volunteer wheat also save? moisture and soil fertility. If Tall pasture is seeded, Balbp rye may be planted since it is immune to fly Planting wheat at the time re commended by" the state agricul tural experiment station or/ the country agricultural aigent for 1 each locality aids in avo'ding in vestations. Wheat should be seed ed as soon as possible after the safe-seeding date. Resistant varieties may be planted somewhat earlier in years when flies are less abundant. If Hessian fly susceptible varieties are planted, the safe seeding date should be followed exactly. be able to divert from 20 to 50 per cent of their wheat acreage, with special diversion provisions for small farms. The diverted acreages must be devoted to an approved conservation use. The diversion payment will be made at 50 per cent of the county loan ate (base on a national average of $1.82 per bushel) on the normal production (1959-60 average yields) of the diverted wheat acreage. The extra price-support payment of 18 cents per bushel will je made on the normal production of the 1963 wheat acreage of growers who are taking part n the wheat diversion program, provided the farm is also in com- j pliance with the farm acreage' allotment. The regular price support on 1963-crop wheat will be available, as in other years, through loans and purchase agreements to growers who comply with their acreage allotments. Cooperatfon with all other farr mers in the community hi all Hessianfly control practices is important in preventing outbreaks because the insects can fly at least five mllti. Planting resistant, adapted varieties is an important defense measure against Hessian fly. Pawnee wheat carries considerable resistance to the fly in Kansas west of a line from Brown to Cowtey counties. Ponca wheat is highly resistant to Hessian fly and adapted to southeastern and south central Kansas. Some fly infestation may occur on both these varieties especially Pawnee. Mixtures of these varieties with susceptible ones can not be expected to give good fly control. New and improved fly resistant wheat varieties should be used as they become available and reconnmended. Egbert pointed vut that the 1963 wheat program is different from the 1982 program in on e important way: Farmers will have to divert the full acreage for which they sign up in order to be eligible for any of the payments. If a farmer does not divert the full signed-up acreage, he will not be eligible for price support nor will he receive acreage diversion or wheat price- support payments. For farmers who do not participate in the voluntary reduction program, the new legislation makes no change in the mandatory provisions of the 1963 wheat program as voted on by farmers in the marketing quota referendum last August. Growers who comply <Wlth their acreage allotments will be eligible for price support at a national average minimum price of $1.82 per bushel. Marketing quota penalties will apply to "excess" wheat. There are also provisions for planting substitute crops on the diverted acreage, in which case the payments are reduced. Information about this and other features of the wheat program are available at local ASCS county offices. 4-H Club Notes The annual Happy Hustler 4-H club pot luck supper and achievement party was October 9 at the 4-H building. _ After a bountiful supper the meeting was called to order by President Jo Elaine Sloan.

What do you do with the frozen food you pun-chase at the store vhcn you return home? It IB 1m- wrtant to protect the quality of ;he frozen foods you buy. It is o be kept cold enough and used soon enough. The most common cause of loss of quality in frozen food is storage at loo high temperatures. Severe damage can result from a single exposure to temperature much too high, or from repeated exposures — days or weeks apart — to temperatures only a few degrees too high. Storage temperature is an important factor in preserving the quality of food. At storage temperature of zero, chemical changes rather than the growth of micro-organisms cause food to lose color, flavor, characteristic texture and nutritive value. Chock today to find out if the storage space you hav e for frozen foods provides the recommended temperature — or, if not, how close it comes to ft. You 11 need to know this temperature to help determine how long to store the foods. Check accurately. Use a thermometer. Check tlie temperature in several locations. Have you asked yourself this question— How long will commercially frozen food retain good quality at home. This will depend on two factors (1) the kind of food it is, and (2) how long and ait what temperature it was stor ed before you bought it. Finney Countian Is State Winner If you are shopping for numerous groceries, select frozen food last — to shorten the time the food is wlthoout refrigeration. During the trip home it's a good idea to protect the food with an insulated bag or a double paper bag. If you buy frozen foods in large quantity, check the condition and quality of the food in one container soon after you buy it. If the food is not solidly frozen and. of bright appearance, you may want to store the remaining con- nainers of food for a short period nly, or you may prefer to return hem to the store. Make sure you heck the quality of the food. Check these points (1) has frost ormed inside the package, (2) s color normal •and bright?, (3) ook for any undesirable changes n texture, (4) does the food have a fresh flavor. > A Finney Countian is one of four 4-H Club members named state award winners in the quality wheat program. He is Marvin James, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lee James, Eminence Rt. Marvin is a member of the Go Getters 4-H Club. He will accompany the other three state winners on an educational trip touring grain marketing facilities in the Houston and Galveston, Tex. acreas from Nov.<8 to 15.

Also If there is an> question about the quality of thi frozen food, reduce the holdini period, before use. When you bu frozen foods, buy from a reput able dealer who will vouch fo the quality of her merchandise Note the condition of the cab net — whether it is clean and th ways foods are stacked in i There is a line on the inner side of many cabinets above which food should not be stacked. Select packages only from clean caibincts in which foods are stacked no higher than the proper fill level. Select packages that are clean and firm. If food was warmed up BO much it lias softened, you can be sure .it has already lost quality. Make sure packaging material is not torn, crushed, L or juice stained. Frozen food that is exposed or poorly packaged dries out and develop! off-flavors quickly. During the transfer from store o home, the temperature of frozen food may rise somewhat. To ower the temperature quickly, place the packages in Contact with refrigerated surfaces In the Ireczer or freezing compartment. L«eave apace on other sides of) packages for air circulation. Af;ar temperature of the food has been owered to proper storage temiperature, .pack containers close together to save space. Store like foods together; place most recently purchasde products at the bottom or back. At tlie same time move foods that have been in freezer storage longer toward the top or front. Label the packages with tlie date stored. It's a good idea to keep a record of the frozen foods that are in storage. One way to do this is to keep an inventory notebook using a separate page for each kind of food. When you put a container into the freezor, enter it in tlie notebook.
