K ™6 ^°# an(l IfoaulifiilComiiessTo Marry Soon George Greb Finds Fai'ni- cn Anxious lo Contract Acreage For the llrsl time since he e:> tablLslied :\ canning luclorv here nine years a«o. George Orel) has too many offers to (jrow vegetables. Dr.spiip his having taken 1,515 acres in "contracts this year, Die < h<-:id of the fousitie.-s is delude:! J iilfers of contracts by fanners who are ea«er to ijro'.v vi:ijr:tjibles Although the cutton reduction !•; partly tile cause of the increase in vegelable growing il h;<s also been increased by activities of the auri- culun-al u»cnl.s who have been sponsoring si (iivpr.slflfHtfon pm- i:ram for a number Of yoarx. Tl;e fuclory will begin operations ti;<- hut of this month nnd will continue through the summer ami In'/'iinlltliigly until Christmas. There will be a maximum of nbam 350 people used with 70 per cent of them tt'OinPii. Dining the busiest .season day and night, shifts will work. It was in 1929 that Mr. C.'rc'b lirst started canning wax and green beans in Blythcvllle. Prom a small acreage of beans and a force of a maximum of 150 people, tile factory has grown until its pay roll is a very important factor in this city. "Plain and fancy" groceries are being grown this year by farmers who are cooperating with Mr. c.roa P ; in starting tieiv tilings in this section. For the first, time iii Arkansas, carrots arc being; planted for commercial sale. Godfrey While has 85 acres already up nl liis farm nort'.i of Osccola. v.'liich are under contrncl to the factory. H 1ms not. yet been decided whether all of the carrots will be canned More wilh peas or whether a part, of them will be shipped to fresh markets in northern points. "11 depends on the market", sail Mr. Greta, who will ship them 11 the market in extra good, othetnise he will can all of (hem. These will be full grown by June and July. Also, for the first time, lima beans are being grown here. There are 500 acres contracted for with these to such large farmers as Mi- While, L. C. Williams of near Eto- wiih. Jap White of Osceola. Ed Wikly and, W:' ; S. .Cochran of- nto- wuri^Vid E: Av Stacy of DelL'One- h.ilf of these beans, which are be- intr planted now, will be ready in July and the remainder in sep( ',li lifter, following a later planting jTliesc beans are to be marketed \inulcr the brand "Ark Special.' The MO acres of English pea? are already planted nnd most of them are now in blossom. These will be first vegetables to be cnn- ned ns they will be ready when the factory begins operations. This is the second year these pens hi'c been grown for the factory. There are 500 acres of green and waxed beans contracted for. which have not yet been planted. Thevc are in large nnd small acreage-, These beans, which will be canned the last of May ami in June, will be prepared whole, nnri broken with the whole beans bringing top market prices. This year's acreage is the usual amount grown. Spinach is not to be a large crop (his year as the market is flooded with the food, which has been made famous by the comic character "Pop Eye." In contrast to the t >mial 300 acres planted here. Hie >•' luclory has contracted tor only 5U yi'-res. This wns planted in Febru- 'iry and will be canned early in May. H is possible that the tac- '•. lory will sell a pail, of tlio crop on i the fresh market if the price is good. Tin's is the seventh vear spinach lias been canned here. j The -10 acres of turnip greens. I u-hicli was the first vegetable plant-' cd this spring, will be canned' nlong with the first beans. An- j other 40 acres will be planted in i September lor harvest in NOVCIU-- bcr. TDir, is the usual acreage. I In addition lo canning (he prod-' nct.s from the 1.515 acres. Hie factory will also can black eyed and Crowder peas, which will be purchased in points of Texas and Miwissippl and shipped here, and j lice, which is also shipped into-' Hlylhevillo. I A profit has been made from | ., canning then- three producls and '! also provides more employment -''or Blytheville people. The canned rice, which was first attempted last November, has been sold (o as distant, (Mints as Diiluth, Minn.. Nebraska. West Virginia and Georgia. The rice is ready for eating when canned and may be served from Ihe can, or heated with a small amount of water. Work of canning rice will start as soon as orders for summer stocking are received. There is also a probability that I0e factory will can red beans, which will also be purchased elsewhere, if the market price is right. fona Twins Pass 9.1 PULASKI. !a.
