The. practice was inaugurated as BII incentive to farmers to do extra or necessary ditching' in making their fi\rm land n more productive nnd less hazardous business. Tlie AAA Incentive payment for tills, practice- was $3 for each 100 linear feet of ditch constructed or eight cents per cubic yard, whichever wns tlie smaller. In 1944, 150 farmers In North Mississippi County took advantage of this practice and dug new ditches or enlarged old ones to the amount of more than 350,000 linear feel. The total amount of <itrt removed In all these projects was approximately 400,000 yards. Taking an average (rom all of these fanners tlic AAA payment amounted to nurjut one-third of the totul cost of construction.

Corning also improves the flavor of many pieces of beef. Below arc listed some of the steps to follow In corning beef for home use.'' CORN BEEF AND SAVE BEEF. 1. Use tlie less lender cuts of meal which have had the bones re" moved. Hones take up space and are better utilized when used for soup stock, a. Brisket, b. plate, c. Rump. rj. chuck. 2. Cut the chunks of meat up into five or six pounds roasts or pieces, a. Cut like loaves of bread instead of squares, b. Cut'so thi: grain runs lengthwise of the'loaf. 3. Be sure the meat has chilled out to 33-38 degrees F. a. Never corn frozen beef. It may spoil before it tliBws oul and cures. 4. Cure in crock Jars or wooden B Laying Possibilities Determined By Stock, Expert Declares ChUks should be selected on the basis of quality rather than price tiiys Robert M. Smith of the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. Tlic ability of a hen to produce a I:\TKK number of eggs is inherited, so when a pullet Is hatched Its laying (legibilities have already been determined, he explained if the parents were from well-selected well-bred stork, anj the rooster was Irani a known high egg production hen, (he piillett has a good chance of being a large producer when kept under proper conditions, the assistant professor of animal Industry' saltl. Because of the expense to a flock owner of having his flock culled j and bioo-J • tested. an ( | of buying good roosters, quality chicks cau- I not be bought. at cut-rate prices tlic specialist reminded. There Is little variation, in the price that dependable ' hatcheries charge fo r their regular chicks. Cn an svernge, three regular hatched chicks arc required' to produce a mature pullet, since one- half of- the chicks are cockerels and some will die and be culled out. Assuming a problem of whether to buy chicks selling for 5 cents or those selling for 15 cents Smith explained (lint three chicks pel- mature pullet means that one mature pullet will have an original cost of 15 cents aiid Jhe oilier, -15 cents, a difference of 30 cents more for the good pullet. "At. present -gg prices,'' he said, "this means i pullet will have to lay only 10 •r 12 more egg:; to 'pay for'this lancd cost. But quality chicks will xrnta lucre. 5. Curing formula for each loo rounds is: 8 pounds clean salt. 2 or 3 pounds of granulated or brown "jgnr. 2 or 3 ounces of saltpeter, gnllon-j of water. , C. IMPORTANT in preparing and mixing the curin-j ingredients Is to TUX in one gallon of warm walcr This dissolves everything much" easier. Then ncld four more gallons produce 150 or more additional eggs each, so 10 good liens are worth more 'than 50 poor ones." Although there Is no certain way to tell the quality of chicks at hatching time, ii the chicks arc bought at a reasonable price from! a hatchery carrying on an Improvement program of flock, culling, testing, and use of high quality males, they are likely to be of good quality, Mr. Smith said. lie advised poultry raisers to obtain their chicks as near home as possible, predicting a pleasant surprise for the purchaser at the quality of chicks his local hatchery is producing. A check with siiccssful neighbors on the source of their chicks, he raid, will reveal that high egg production comes from good breeding and good management and not, by . accident, coimty home demonstration -agent, Heat,,air, and light cause the oil In nuts to taste old, and nuts left in the shells often become rancid In warm weather, she explained. Her- directions for preserving pecans, walnuts, peanuts, hickory mils, and most other kinds of nuts are as follows: Select well developed, fresh nut kernels free from bits of shell. Preserve Taste Of Fresh Nuts , By Canning Them The fresh taste of nuts can be preserved by shelling and canning (hem wiille they arc still fresh, according to Miss Cora Lee Coleman, Sterilize half-pint or pint jars and allow them to dry.. Fill Jars with the nuts and partially seal. , Process In a hot water bath for 30 minutes, or in a steam pressure calmer for 10 minutes at 5 pounds of pressure, (Since the purpose of the healing is to drive the atr from the jars, either method may be used.)
