(Art.) courier nan — maay, JUIM i, MM- Pi|t Five Crop Relief Bill Passes Senate WASHINGTON (AP) Senate passed a bill Wednesday 'to aid farmers who don't get their crops planted because of natural disaster. 1 The Senate required four liours and six roll call votes to pass the measure 56-10. The House has already approved ft. The Senate did, however, write in an amendment limiting to $10,000 the federal payment to any farmer involved. •• The bill will permit farmers -covered by the federal cotton •wheat or feed grain programs to plant alternate crops if flood or natural disaster prevents them from planting the original crop. Soybeans was mentioned as one of the alternate crops. Farmers who do not plant cotton, wheat or feed grains and then see their crops destroyed by natural disaster already are permitted to plant alternate crops. The Senate bill would give the farmer involved federal land diversion and price support payments on the unplanted, to unharvested, crop involved.

Farmers are a hardy breed, I must say. At least those that are left on farms are maintaining a pretty good sense of humor. There are not many farmers left, you know. There are only about 1,000 individual larm operators in North Mississippi County. To begin with, Mississippi County farmers harvested 164,200 acres of cotton last year. The average yield was 622 pounds -per acre. This was a reduced acreage from previous years. Then. came the Government -Program of 1966, which permitted, or very much encouraged --farmers to reduce their cotton acreage. • •* . * * The effective cotton allotment in Mississippi County for 1966, before any diversion, was about 178,000 acres. After farmers .agreed to divert about 26 percent of Siis acreage, that only kft about 132,000 acres of cotton allotment that could be planted in 1966. FARM NEWS Review and Forecast Cotton Chemicals Recommended BO GIBSON Associate County Agent The University of Arkansas recomends six postemergence chemicals for cotton. The post-: emergence that the University has recommended to use in controlling weeds in cotton are: Herbicidal oil, Diuron plus surfactant, DSMA plus surfactant, Diuron 0.2 Ibs. plus DSMA 2 Ibs plus surfactant, Dictry 1 nil plus DSMA 2 Ibs., Diuron (lay- by) The University jcomends using 5 to 7 gallons of oil to be applied across the row. Ii shoulder nozzles are used, .the year in history, but there were almost no days during the normal planting season when farmers could plant. Then, tbe crop that was planted was exposed to unreasonable amount of rain and flood water. So, much less Kian the 132,000 acres will end up in cotton this year. I have checked with various agricultural leaders in the county and their guesses are that from 15 to 25 percent, of the 132,000 acre cotton allotment will be, or has already been plowed up a n d planted in soybeans. Can you imagine Mississippi County with very little more than 100,000 acres of cotton? The Government Program will permit farmers who have lost their cotton due to natural disaster, to plow it up and plant soybeans. Harry McDaniel, Manager of the ASC Office in Osceola, ad vises that many farmers are asking them if they have to have permission, or if they have We Have a Fertilizer for Soybeans "Mr. Greeen" high-analysts mixed fertilizer ?s produced in a variety of grades. "Mr. Greeen" 6-24-24 and "Mi. Green" 6-18-36 have what is needed in a starter fertilizer for soybeans. Soybeans respond to direct fertilization when phosphorus and potassium are not at optimum levels in the soil. Fertilizer nitrogen is needed as a "starter" until the plant is sufficiently developed to "fix" iis own nitrogen. "Mr. Grteen" fills the need in the critical period when fte seedling is making the transition from seed^ to soil nutrients. By providing nourishment during this 'switchover," "Mr. Greeen" can add yield and hasten maturity. Free-flowing "Mr. Greeen" granules feed evenly as you plant. Each granule is complete in itself. Every granule is the same — in size and in nutrient balance. For most profitable rSults, apply 100 to 150 pound* of Spencer "Mr. Greeen" 6-24-24 or 6-18-36 per «*• M you plant.

Jimmie Edwards the hard way how b plan) * * * An hour of time spent In planning saves time in shopping, in cooking and 'in just thinking about what to have for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You know how long it will take to prepare the meal and what can be done ahead of time. To do a jood job of meal planning, we need to set aside a certain time and have a certain place to work.

There is no set nu nbef'of Often they include chops, steaks or ready-to-eat dishes. Planning ahead permits the use of less expensivs meats and delicious soups which require long slow cooking. When meals are planned ahead less food is likely to go to waste because only the foods the plan called for were what they eat, so you can plan to serve the right food to balance the diet. What you had for breakfast should influence what you serve for dinner. Many people eat only two meals a day. Some people eat as many'as _. • . , _ I - -V.--* ed each day for t,ood nutrition. No meal stands alone in meeting nutritive needs. All the foods for the day should be considered as a unit. Meals that are planned ahead will provide a wider variety of foods from meal to meal than if the meals are put together at the last minute... The fourth good reason for planning meals for a week is the sense of satisfaction it gives. The joy of not having to worry about what shall I cook. * * * The purpose of meal planning is to make''t easier to include all the kinds and amounts of different foods ;ieedeJ daily. If children eat lunch at school from home you need to know meals. However, when you skip meals, food meal planning becomes a little harder. The day.'s meals should be planned as a unit. Don't spend the remaining years of your lives wondering, "what shall I serve for dinner?" "Cowpoke'^i WESTERN SHOP SEE US i . . °"!

PATIO BOUNDARY BENCH \ o have their first planted cotton checked by someone from the office before they can plow i up and plant soybeans. Mr. Me- 3aniel says the answer is, "No.'j At ttie time they measure your acreage, they will ask what ields, or areas, were previous- y planted in cotton and lost due ;o bad weather, poor stands, etc. * * * The farmers who have not been able to plant their cotton a .first time are in much worse jouble. "This "cotton acreage" jannot be planted to soybeans, or anythhing else, without serious complications with the Farm Program. News from Washington this Thursday morning, indicated that Congress may not get the law changed permitting farmers to plant soybeans on cotton allotment land that has.not been planted to cotton this year. If you have such a problem, contact your ASC Office before planting to some other crop. Surely, the County must be at its worse now, and will continue to improve throughout the summer. We hope so, the farmers hope so, the businessmen of the area hope so, - because they have a lot at stake in this crop also.
