BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS THE DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OF NORTHEAST ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MISSOURI VOL. XLV—NO. 14 Blythevllle Dally Newi BIj'theville Courier Blytheville Herald Mississippi Valley Leader BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS, FRIDAY APRIL 8, 1949 TWELVE PACKS SINGLE COPIES FIVE CENTS ttail Tests Show Missco Fields Richest in State Young Farmers Get Report on Surveys By U. of A. Specialists Mississippi County and Crltten- rten Counly are the two most fertile rounties in Arkansas, according to the reports compiled to date in connection with a soli testing program being conducted, by the university of Arkansas. Approximately 100 veterans, rep- represenhig the Young farmers Association of Leachville, heard Keith >;. Bilbrey, county agent for North [Mississippi County, review the pro- jjrani at their meeting in the Lea- ^livitle Higli School last night. i Mr, Bllbrey explained that wherc- iis many counties need additional Clements in large quantities, only Utuall deficiencies have been appnr- "fnl from tlic 200 soil lests made farms in this county, ! The tests indicate thai two of the j reatest deficiencies are potash and :-i jirgniilc matter, while there seems i iq be adequate phosphorus, lime Ltd magnesium, Mr, Bilbrey said thnt twoj per ait of the farms tested in Mlss- ilppl County showed need for addition of lime, and that in 30 ; f; the 75 counties more than 50 cent of the farms need addition jjst:: lime for legume and pasture „ The only county having as calcium content was Critt- tn County, where less than one cent of the farms tested showed leilciencles. phosphorous Content Hij?h V.iln summarizing reports relative ^•{o phosphorous, Mr. Bilbrey, polnt- °.ifvM out that Mississippi County, -f.^prlttendeii County, two counties In "fcoutheast Missouri* and across the "'Mississippi River opposite Critten- Jlen County to the Yazoo— Mississippi Delta formed a belt where soils were extremely well off as far as phosphorous content was concerned, since the number of farms low In phosphorous content averaged from zero to two per cent. In ^,^45 of the 75 counties In Arkansas ^,iore thn 50 per cent of the farms need additional phosphorous. Less than two per cent of terms lested here show need of additional magnesium, » minor element nec- «&sary In crop production but sorely needed In small quantities in 35 of the Arkansas counties. Mr. TJllbiv.;, "ftfc-ncd Chat .^iside:•-• able quantity of lew grade-potash had been void In the sandy nveas of the coiinty with th« claim tha | the magnesium was needed in sano., aoll. The tests show that even in the §andy areas of Mississippi County only a few instances is there a need of more magnesium, while in the sandy plains of Union, Ouachita, Calhoun and Bradley counties from 97 to 100 per cent of the farms need magnesium to be added. The records of potash and organic matter were somewhat different, with that of potash being peculiar In that the south part of the county shows a deficiency in only 1.1 per cent of the farms tested, nnd the north part of the county shows B deficiency in 36 per cent of the testings. Although the county Is one of the 20 with a deficiency of less than 50 per cent in organic matter, it still averages a 29 per cent deficiency. In a general discussion of fertilizers the county agent announced that a new mixture, 10-0-10, (rep- restning 10 pounds of nitrogen, no phosphorous, and 10 pounds ol ijotash to each 100 pounds of fertil- •Qserl na s been approved by the State Plant. Board, and should be of benefit to the farmers In the area .since in the past most mixtures had an xmbalanced amount of phosphorous for soils showing no dcf- iency in that element. Following Mr. Bilbrey's talk the group voted to ask Farm Bureai officers from Mississippi County to explain their organization's services to farm people at the club's rwxf meeting. May 5, It was announcer that this would be an open meeting. Pcmiscof Sheriff Obtains Law Enforcement Aides; Locks 'Em in Doghouse Sheriff E. F. Claxlon of Caruth- erssville today had two new law enforcement assistants under lock and key. They Joined the staff only this week and already they're in the pen.

Arkansans Who Buy In Memphis Subject To Double Taxation LITTLE ROCK. April 8. (ff*)— Von now have to pay the State of Arkansas a two per cent tax on most tangible personal property to be used or stored in Arkansas regardless of where you buy H. Tf you buy a non-exempt Hem in Arkansas, you must pay state sales tax on H. If you buy It out.side of Arkansas and bring it into the state to use or kep, you must pay a "use" lax on it. The use tax, enacted by the 1949 legislature, became effective this month. • In some the use lax is resulting in double taxation on out- of-state purchases, but this condition may be only temporary- The double taxation comes when you buy an item covered by the use tax in a stale wlvch applies a sales tax to the same Hem, P'or instance ,if you live in Arkansas and buy an automobile in Memphis, you must pay both Tennessee sales tax and Arkansas use tax on H. Arkansas Revenue Commissioner Dean Morley said today, however, his department is not certain whether such double taxation will be permanent or whether the legislature Intended to create double taxation. He has asked the state attorney general for an opinion on it. "1 want to hear more about it,*, how It would operate, and \vhu|, it would cast the taxpayers," K'a.s the typical reaction of members of COIIKVC.S.S who heard Secretary of Agriculture Bralnian outline the plan yasterday. The secretary was called before the House Agriculture Committee today lo answer questions. He sketched the program before a joint meeting of the House and Senate committees yesterday, but there was not time for members to inquire extensively into its provisions. Even so, i^ was quite apparent that the plan faces tough going. It drew immediate sharp criticism from, some Republican farm-state leaders. FarM Bureau Stagds Pat The powerful American FMvm Bureau Federation Indicated it will .stand pat in its support of present farm laws. At its last convention, thf bureau went oti record against a farmer-payment plan included In the administration plan. Democrats as a whole withheld judgment. Chairman Elmer Thomas <D-Okla) of the Senate Agriculture Committee said he was In "Full accord" with the plan's objectives. But he did not commit himself on me'hods. The methods, rather than the objectives, will be the subject of debate and controversy. Expected to arouse sharp opposition are provisions of the program: (1) Use of government payments to farmers to assure them a minimum return for such products as | hogs, cattle, lambs, milk, butterfnt. I egKS, poultry, fruits and vegetables. Taxpayers to Make-up Losses I If the price set by the free-play of supply and demand failed to give the producer a pre-cietermincd minimum return, the government I would make up the difference in the form ot a check drawn upon the treasury. (2) Abandonment of the parity system of determining so-called "fair" price goals for farm products. Adopted in the first year of the Roosevelt New Deal, this system has been the backbone of farm-aid programs ever since. It would be supplanted by a new system designed to assure agriculture a certain minimum income rather than minimum crop prices. (3) Provisions for broadening government controls on farm operations. These face stiff opposition. Farmer? would be required to cooperate with all government programs affecting all products produced by them and to comply with sol] conservation programs In order to be eligible (or any price- support aid. While the government holds it already has such wide control au- thoiHy, the power never has been used. Neigkboriiness Among Nations Stressed Before Rotary Group "Man Is living in the age ol speed.
