Bfrfttvflle (Aife.) Cenrler Km - Frtfiy, Aprfl 9, UN . P*fe ttm Eggs-planations Come In Handy! Patoy J. Cole Home Demonstration Agent In the Spring a young lady's fancy turns to thoughts of — egg buying?? Could be - especially if It's Easter! You can bet many Mom's will purchase many eggs during this week! Before you go on your egg buying spree here are a few hints. * i * Eggs are not exceedingly plentiful, so prices have generally been hovering in the area of 50 cents per dozen and upward. This week there'll be Easter egg specials on varying sizes. At this time of year, egg prices are so nea; the same for large, medium and small eggs that it's a good practice to choose the largest size for general use. For Easter eggs, however, numbers are more important than size, so the best buys to dye are the ones that cost least by the dozen, even though price difference may be small. Regardless of the size you choose — it's wise to choose quality eggs (Grade A or AA) if they are to be eaten after the Easter hunt. This quality eggs look and taste better than Grade B eggs after they're eoojted in the shell. * * * Cooking method alto affects the flavor of Easter eggs. They'll taste and look best if hard • cooked instead of hard boiled. Lower temperature means more tender -whites, less dark coloring around the yolk and less cracking of iheels during cooking. To hard - cook eggs without boiling, cover eggs with cool water and bring to boil in a heavy covered pan. Remove pan from heat and lei eggs set for about 20 minutes in hot water. If you must rush the >rbcess, :tart eges i>- cold water and bring to boiling point. fte- duce heat and sirnmer gently 'or 10 minutes. * * * To dye the egg shell and not Pemiscot 4-H In Talent Show Pemiscot County 4-H will hold Us annual Share - the - Fun Program next Friday night ai 7:30 p.m. at the R-3 school at McCarty.

Vertical Mulching Boosts Corn Yields In six years of tests at the University of Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station, corn grown on a non-irrigated plow- pan soli that had been vertically mulched produced higher yields than corn grown on the same soil without the vertical mulching. This was not found to be Camping Show Coming Up Campers from Arkansas, Tennessee, Louisianna and Missouri will converge on Hardy, Arkansas, April 22-24, for Arkansas Family Camping Show. The event's sponsored by the Hardy Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with the University of Arkansas Extension Service, the National Campers and Hikers Clubs of Arkansas and the Area Tourist Committee. Entertainment phases of the program include a canoe race on Saturday afternoon, April 23, and campfire programs on Friday and Saturday nights. The campfire programs will feature skits by camper's clubs, folk music, and Indian dance* by Boy Scouts of the area. Kenneth King, President of the Hardy Chamber of Commerce said, "The various groups involved in our show have planned this event for months. We are inviting anyone interested in camping to come and enjoy this activity." King said pre - registration was requested but not required. Anyone who desires to reserve space should write M. A. Graddy, Secretary, Hardy Chamber of Commerce, Hardy, Arkansas, for a registration form. A small fee will be charged each camper to help defray the show expenses. true in tests where irrigation was used, however. The increased corn yields on the non-irrigated tests were due to the increased soil water below the plowpan of the vertical mulch treatments as compared to that of the treatments without the mulch. It was found that adding fertilizer to the vertical mulch did not increase yields. Ground rice hulls were used as the mulch material in these tests. Several different placements of the mulch were tried. In one plot/the vertical mulch was placed directly under the row, and in others it was placed under the middles. In all cases, the vertical mulch was placed to a depth of about 24 Inches with the top of the mulch about 6 inches below the soil surface. The average width of the vertical mulch was 3 inches. In the non-irrigated tests, the vertical mulch treatment in which the mulch was placed directly under the row consistently produced higher com yields than did the other two treatments. More corn rots were present hi the vertical mulch channel directly under the row than were in the soil directly under the row in the no-mulch check plot. Complete results of these experiments are contained in Bulletin 707. Single copies of this publication may be obtained, without charge, from county Extension agents in Arkansas, or from the Bulletin Room, Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. Cuts In Farm Programs Called Danger To State Proposed cuts In agricultural appropriations could work severe hardships oh Arkansas far- men, according to Agricultural Council of Arkansas Executive Committee members. Meeting at the West Memphis Holiday Inn, March 31, the committee voted overwhelmingly to work diligently for the restoration of cuts in these funds. Jack Gibson of Dermott, Council president, Mid the proposed 1967 federal fiscal budget would reduce agricultural experiment station funds by $».5 million and Agricultural Research Service funds by $4 million. The proposed budget, he Hid, would shift $10 million from the state agricultural extension services to federally allocated rural development and poverty programs, reducing federal support for teaching in Land • Grant colleges by 112 Million. "These proposed cuti could reduce the support of on - going programs of education and agricultural research and extension in Arkansas by approximately $600,000," Uniyesity of Arkansas President Dr. David W. Mul- llrts said. Falculty arrangements are now being made by the University for the coming year. State funds are not available to support faculty positions which have previously been supported by federal funds. New support cannot come from the State until the legislature meets in January, and unless federal cuts are restored, the University Is in danger of losing valuable faculty members and researchers, committee members feel. Mr, Gibson stated further: "The abundant food and fiber production of American agriculture is the sound base upon which our affluent industrial society Is built. It seems the Administration has taken a reckless course in recommending cut backs in agricultural appropriations at a time when we are waging a world war against hunger. If strong agricultural research and extension programs are not maintained, we could one day be waging a war against hunger in this country. "The consuming public has benefited tremendously through^ the years from government sup-"^ port of Land • Grant college extension, research and teaching programs. Consumer benefits have come through reasonable, food and clothing prices, a broad selection of products, and-"~ the huge amount of wealth pour : ed into the economy yearly by; arigulture." ,> In the first Gator Bowl game, on Jan. 1, 194«, Wake Forest defeated South Carolina, 26-14.
