(AP) — The Agriculture Department report- id this week that (arm Income totaled $15.400,000.000 during the first •even months of this year. This was 17 per cent more than In the same period last year. The department said this increase wan not entirely a net, gain (or farmers because farm cost rates rose »n average of 12 per cent during the 1951 period. Income from livestock, and live- , stock products was reported at $10.700,000.000, or 25 per cent more than a year ago. Income from crops was listed as On Missco Farms Coint; A IMI Ktith I. By WOODY R, JACKSON Assistant Co. Agent For Keith J. Bilbrey, Co. A»ent YOUR ATTENTION PLKASE. This warning would have been wasted last Wednesday along about 10 o'clock. Everyone I met was speculating on the government estimate. 1 don't know how pleased you were with the n.266,000 bale estimate but It seemed a little high and brought on some brisk trading of futures. Consequently a slight drop In closing price.! n'a.5 noticed. The beltwide cotton committee composed of various Farm Bureau $4.700.000,000 or about the same as last year. Higher average crop prices were offset by smaller production. Farm income in July this year was reported at $2.000,000,000. This was 20 per cent more than in June because ot larger marketings, and U per cent nbove July last year, mostly because ot higher prices.

Alfalfa Menae* Quit* a few of you are alarmed, and rightly so. about the alfalfa webworm which is playing havoc with your hay. The best remedy to cut and remove the hay, then poison the stubble with toxaphene or D.D.T. Watch adjoining fields of cotton and soybeans as this worm will attack those crops also SHOULD I DEFOLIATE? No doubt many of you are turning that question over in your minds already. This office will send you a summary of Information pertaining to chemical defoliation of cotton, published by the National Cotton Council. ' This summary list,? some of the benefits of defoliating such as: Increases efficiency of cotton picker; improves grade of cotton, causes mature bolls to open faster, etc. A guide lo help you decide on the proper time for applying the defoliant is also Included. If you fail to receive your copy, come by the office and pick it up. 4-H COTTON North Mississippi County 4-H boys are doing a good Job with their cotton demonstrations in all parts of the county on various soil types. Perhaps you'd like to see some of the crops and talk to the boys in your community who are doing good work with cotton. Larry Cassidy of Huffman; WI11U Rhodes, Number Nine; Billy Nelson, Ynrbro; Billy Shumate. Lone Oak'; Sonny Lucius and Ben Caldwell, Gosnell; James "Pepper" Harris, Lost Cane; and Jim Taylor, Leachville have cotton crops ranging from one to 20 acres. They would burst their shirts with pride in showing you their cotton. Blanket of Green Judging from the number of request* about time of seeding vetch. it appears that Mississippi County will have tots of organic matter to plow under next spring, as well as a good source of nitrogen fertilizer. The extension Service Agronomist recommends planting vetch. from the last of August until tlie last of October. Seed planted later than -that will not make good root growth before winter, and would be easier to winter kill. Twenty to twenty five pounds of seed are used If planted alone. Twenty pounds are sufficient If seeded with a small grain. Rollwonn, Leafworm Gordon Barnes, extension entomologist, reminds us to be prepared for a bollworm or leafworm outbreak. I would suggest that you purcha» or contract for a small supply of poison In case we do have to fight them, to prevent e. scarcity at s critical time. Toxa- phene IK IdeaJ for leafworms; DDT for bollworms. Weather Causing Heavy Chick Loss LITTLE ROCK. Aug. 10. (AP) — The hot summer weather that Is sweeping ArXansaj Is causing a heavy loss of poultry In North Arkansas. W. S. Polland. Agricultural Ex tension Service poultry specialist said he had reports from Russellville, Dardanelle. Danville and Plainvlew that birds were dying of heat prostration. He said chicks more than two r.r three weeks old will not grow when the temperature is above 90 degrees They will just eat enough to keep ttllve. he said. When the temperature rises above 100. heat prostration starts killing birds, even mature ones, he added. H.D.CLUBMEMOS fcf Mr*. Gertrude B Rollman (Home Demonstration A tent I August Plentiful! High on the list of plentiful foods Tor August are broilers and fryers. 'resh frozen fish, cottage cheese and icanut butter. Vegetable shoppers will find an abundance of potatoes, beets, snap "-lans, cabbage, tomatoes, sweet irn and summer squash. Fruits on the plentiful list will nclude lemons, limes, sour cherries, grapes, canned and frozen citrus juices, canned apples and apple sauce. Honey will be especially plentiful. Fried Corn for Hie Picnic Menu Foods cooked over the picnic fire leed not be limited to the traditional roasted wieners and fried hamburgers. Many a family has a favorite mixed dish, chosen for the :angy flavor, that tastes twice as good outdoors. This fried corn recipe makes four generous servings and ihe peppers and onions can b? carried to the picnic chopped ^ind ready to use. Pried corn: 2 tablespoons fat; 't, cup chopped onion; '', cup green pepper; 1 No. 2 can whole kernel corn, drained; '4 teasoon salt; pepper; K cup milk or cream. Melt the fat in a frying pan. Add other insreldienls except milk, and cook until the vegetables ate somewhat dry and lightly browned. Add the milk or cream and heat all thq- roughlv together. Proper racking Is Secret Chilled fresh fruit anrt crisp green vegetables as well as hot foods mav appear on the picnic table, along with the traditional sandwiches, potato salad and pickles—even though food isn't .served for hours after it '- nrepared. Proper packing is the secret. Vegetables such as celery, carrots, and green pepper sticks, which contrast well in texture and flavor with sandwiches and eggs, will keep fresh In plastic bags. Deviled eggs, sliced meat, chicken salad, in fact, any protein food. In sandwiches or packed separately, which should he kept, cold, not merely cool, can be addryd safely to the picnic meal, if kept on Ice until time to eat. Even butter and marparine stay firm if well iced, and nicnicers can have Cui making their own sandwiches. Picnic foods can be. kept cold sue cessfullv without special equipment. A kettle, for example, or otrjer cooking vessel with a lid. ninkes an effective picnic "ice chest." Select one large enough 'to accommodati all foods which must be kept chilled; Cover the b'ottom thickly with crushed Ice. Then nlace the food~ In plastic tags or glass Jars In the vessel and nack with more crushed ice. Wrap thick layers of paner or towels around the kettle to act as an insulator. Foods meant to be served hot .. a picnic should be brought cold and cooked at the picnic grounds r packed In a container such as wide-month eallon >ue of the tvn sold for keeping foods hot or cold 4-H Did all of you hear Doris Ken- neit. a Leochvllle 4-H member, eive some talent numbers out at the REA Annual Meeting?

Bee Population In State Down There were 86.000 colonies of bees in both farm and non-farm apiaries ' in Arkansas on July 1, a decline cf seven per cent from a year earlier according to the Arkansas Crop Reporting Service.

Similar losses also occurred dur- ing'the same period of 1949.
