Club —Mrs. Maude Threlkeld, a member ,Athe Brown Home Demonstration THub, has Invited all the member clared today. By placing cotton in the loan formers can spread the marketing of this year's big crop over a longer period of time and prevent market gluts. Preventing market gluts will strengthen the market and protect prices. "Cotton farmers must realise, however." Mr. Spelling said, "that a floor under the market will not build itself. It must be built by farmers themselves placing cotton in the loan program. Marketing Ihe crop over a longer period will prevent flooding the market at a lime when orderly marketing would pay off in a stronger market. Each farmer must make his own decision, but he should consider loan advantages carefully." The chairman explained that mills and exporters cannot use the whole year's needs for cotton during the short period when the bulk of the crop is harvested. He said cotton farmers know that marketings must be financed, stored and merchandized later. If a lot of cotton Li placed in the loan, the market would be strengthened by feeding cotton into Ihe market as it is needed, while at the same time cash through the loan program is provided for Ihe payment of current obligations. "We have had a lot of experience with the cotton loan. During the past 15 years or more, prices have been supported by cotton loan participation to the benefit of the cotton grower. In 1948, when over one- third of the crop was p'ut under loan, farmers repaid the loans on 28 bales out of every 100 placed In the loan. That cotton was sold on the market by the growers at a price higher than the loan value. About J17.50 a bale was distributed back to growers by the Commodity Credit Corporation on cotton which remained under loan from the 1948 crop. "Again in 1S49 farmers participated by placing more than one- fifth of the crop into the Joan. Advancing market prices made It profitable for producers to repay nearly all the loans that year and sell the cotton above the loan value Producers were thus able to take advantage of a rising market. Last year, good market prices of the small 1950 crop resulted in little use of the loan program." Complete details on the 1951 loan program may be obtained from the county PMA office or from any county or community PMA commit teeman. . . French Produce Fivm Per Cent of Diamonds BRAZZAVILLE, French Equitor- ial Africa (AP)—French Eqmtorial Africa's diamond production this year will reach 200,000 carats or 5 percent of' the total world production, said High Commissioner Cornut-Gentille when he opened the yearly session of the Equatorial Africa Grand Council. He further quoted the recent oil discovery in the aGboon area as a major hope for FEA's mining industry but sai< it would take several months to ascertain whether big scale exploitation would be possible. over to her house Thursday to get a lesson on culling chickens.

OLIVER Model 33 Self-Propelled Grain Master CHOW LINE—Liner-ally making pigs of themselves, these 10 Berkshire piglets lost no lime in hitting the chow line after their* recent birth on the farm of Clarence MacBcth in West Salem, Ohio. On Missco Farms bj Count! Afent Keilb J. Bilbre? Thank God for Mississippi I learned more on a two day lour ot cotton farms In Mississippi this week than I ever learned before in j similar period of time. Some good fields were producing 725 pounds of lint per acre now. other fields were so sorry they will not make a sack to the field. I saw mechanical pickers in these :ood fields but more surprising I saw six pickers in a half bale to the acre field that was not defoliated and full of Johnson grass and other grass and weeds. They appeared satisfied with the grade of cotton they were getting from a good gin. I-don't see how the pickers got the cotton. Yes. the field looked ragged but they were getting the cotton out. I Was a Guest About 35 farmers from this county were the guests of the Delta Implement Company stores of Blytheville, Manila and in Mississippi. The attendance was limited by hotel space. The other stores In Mississippi sent delegates too, so there was a big crowd. Here are some Mississippi County people I saw there: Arthur Brlttaln, Charlie Lutes. Vance DIxon, Joe Prltchard, C. D. Long, Paul Long, H. B. Shearrin, Henry Gosa. Russell Gill, Floyd Mooney, John Lewis, A. J. Lewis, Charles Armstrong. Vance Henderson, Jack Droke, Bob Porter, Charles Brogdon, E. L. Hale, Jack; Hale. Blan and Bud Heath, Garth Cattllo, Rex Warren, L. G. Nash and myself. From west of the lake—Virgil S. Johnson, Earl Wildy, Jeff and Wink Hauls, Son Perkins, J. O. Edwards. Walter Roach, Pete Harrison, Burl Johnson and Don Brewer. If there are other wis-cs who thought (heir husbands were on tint trip maybe they were. I can't remember all of them. ' Dumbfounded Our farmers just couldn't get over the amount of open cotton and so few hand pickers. Truly, It was amazing to us. but the Mississippi tanners are not 'alarmed. They say they can't stand the high cost and constant headaches of obtaining Mexican nationals and besides "we'll get it picked with what little labor we have and those mechanical pickers. I guess we have lots more mechanical pickers than you people do." One operator of five larm.s totaling eleven hundred acres said, "we expect 20 per cent of our crop to be hand picked and 80 per cent to be machine picked." Somewhat Convincing Charles Brogdon is mounting his pickers on a tractor today. Red Gill said yesterday on the trip, "I'm going to start my mechanical pickers this afternoon If I can get home in time." Several of the men on the tour think they can pick mech- Unlcally and at a profit over hand picking even before defoliating. No doubt defoliating will Improve the grade some however. Delta and Pini-land We visited the Delta and Pine- land plantation. They have 22,000 acres in cultivation and are using ICG tractors. I think they have 26 mechanical pickers. Their cotton variety test was In the best shape for study I ever saw. The cotton was all defoliated eight days ago. All bolls \verc open on all varieties so we could really make good comparisons. 1 look some excellent color shots with our Harm Bureau camera. The pictures and slides will be" available for you to see soon. Varieties that I remember in this lest included D and PL 15, D and PL Fox, stonevllle 2B. Coker 100, Empire. Bobshaw and two new hybrids. These new hybrids arc four to five years away from you hut 11 ey lire truly outstanding ant! con- spicious In this test. Their new Fox cotton seems to come nearer opening all at the same time than D and PL 15. Thai's better for mechanical pickers.

The largest part of separation is accomplished right al the cylinder to give greater capacity to the entire machine. More cylinder capacity lets you cover more acres a day with the Massey-Harris Self- Propelleds—up to SO with the "26," 70 with the "27." The combing action of the beater* . . . the gentle, natural action of the rasp bar cylinder—are balanced In both size and operation to do a uniform job of separating your grain. You do a better job of harvesting with the "26" and "27" ... you move along at a good clip because th« Massey-Harris cylinder doesn't shy away from heavy straw. But heavy or light, all of your grain goes to Ihe Ionic—cleaner grain, more grain to increase your profit. Slugs don't worry the "26" and "27."
