Well, they haven't come out so good. Our sources of information reported that the Missouri cotton crop runs from 65 to 70 percent of normal with thousands of acres.going unplanted —which had to be planted with soybeans. The reason for the failure of many Bootheel farmers to get their full acreage allotments of cotton planted was too much rain at the wrong time. !hilly weather, especially at night, hasn't contributed to .deal cotton growing conditions. So far, this hasn't been a year tor cotton. Last week what was sorely needed was a rain over the Bootheel, and farmers were Sloping this would come. While the situation with cotton is gloomy, the Bootheel wheat crop generally was good with the yield and quality excellent. Ed Tillman, operator of a grain elevator in Hayti, said that yield ran from 40 bushels per acre up and prices were from 40 to 50 cents a bushel highe- Wian last year. While the Boot- heel wheat acreage was cut 10 persent from that of last year under the federal farm program, the higher yield and higher prices this year offset it. Next year, however, there will be a 15 percent increase in the acreage gram. under the federal pro- Th wheat harvest was completed last week with most farmers working rapidly to follow the acreage with soybeans. Prices for the grain have risen to the point where new crop beans could be booked for around $3.00 per bushel, considerably higher than last year's prices. There are no acreage restrictions on soybeans. "It looks like we will be able to sell anything we can raise in the Bootheel this year," Tillman held by the Triangle Boating the Medicare age the announcement predicted, "at higher prices than we have received for a number of years." One farmer said soybean prices now are higher than they have been in 25 years. Good news to Pemiscot County citizens in group was last week by Gerald Freeman, administrator of the Pemiscot County Memorial Hospital at Hayti, that their institution had been approved by the Federal Health, Education and Welfare agency to accept Medicare patients. The notice of approval was received June 21. While tJie hospital has been delayed on its new expansion program, the administrator said that he didn't expect to run into a shortage of beds due to Medicare until the first of the year. In the building and improvement program some $1 million is to be spent to add a new wing which will have space for around 30 beds. It will include a new two - room surgical suite, new emergency room and all- new mechanical plant such as boilers and related facilities. The present building also is to be upgraded, he said, in the im- provement program. Plans are being made currently with the target date for the start of construction set for January 1. Well, the Bootheel beauty queen season for 1966 is about to open again with a new crop of young ladies vieing for the titles in a half - dozen or more major events. First of the big ones will be the "Miss Missouri Bootheel" pageant to be presented at the Fourth of July celebration in Northside Park in Hayti. This contest is limited to 20 girls with 19 registered by the end of the week. Next will be the "Miss Mississippi River" pageant to be Club later in July., Then the American Legion Fair queen at Caruthersville. As one long - time observer put it, "We have more beauty queens per square mile in southeast Missouri than any other rural area in the world." jbiar -Abby..Self-Respect Is Best -Abigail Uo (McNiulbl IradlMM UC.J BlltlllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllillllllllllllllliaillllllllJillllHIli: DEAR ABBY: Your column is held in great esteem by many young people, but one of your recent answers has caused some of us to reconsider. In your reply to a cocktail waitress who wanted to know how to keep the wolves in line without losing tips, you said: "Tell them the huskiest bartender in the place is your husband." Abby, to advise her to be deceitful contradicts the high moral standards which in the past you have always upheld. Honesty is honesty, and should he a constant habit. And even tho the waitress may lose some tips, she should not compromise her self - respect. Thank you. THE NINTH GRADE ENGLISH CLASS MCKNIGHT JR. HIGH SCHOOL RENTON, WASH.

Rogers (teacher). DEAR STUDENTS AND MR. ROGERS: Tbank you for your fine letter. I agree with your criticism and ap- ren I would say that that speaks well for the Bootheel. We get tired of just looking at cotton wheat and soybeans. predate having had this called to my attention. Let's substitute the following answer: "Tell the wolves that you are not that kind of girl. And if they tip only because they expect to see you later they had better save their money." DEAR ABBY: Every Sunday for many years my husband and I and our son (who is now 15) have eaten dinner at a downtown cafeteria. For the last year, our son has always managed to finish his dinner first, and while we are still eating, he says, "Dad, would you let me have the keys to the car?" My husband puts down his fork, digs into his picket and hands over the keys. Then the boy goes and sits in the car and listens to the radio until We join him. Sometimes it is only a matter of 10 minutes, but it burns me up to go thru this ritual every Sunday. Incidentally, this happens when others are eating with us. When I mention this to my husband he says, "0, it's a petty matter." I would like your opinion. OLD FASHIONED DEAR 0. F.: Waiting until everyone at the table has finished eating before leaving is a simply exercise in courtesy, consideration, and patience. Your son should be gently but firmly corrected. DEAR ABBY: I recently went to the hospital for some exploratory surgery as I was concerned about the possibility of cancer. Two neighbor women, whom I do not know very well, came to visit me there. They took turns asking prying questions as to the nature of my illness, whether more surgery would be necessary, etc. I tried to fend off these questions as best I could. After they left, a member of a fraternal group to which I belong called on me. The same line of questioning was pursued. Only this person spent nearly an hour telling me about "similar cases" in which all the patients died — of cancer. I was depressed beyond words. Why do people visit the sick and leave them sicker? DEPRESSED DEAR DEPRESSED: Because common sense is all too uncommon. My advice on bedside manners: Make the visit short, sweet, and cheerful. Leave the coughs and the kids at home. Ask no questions. I! you can't do that, stay away. Troubled? Write to Abby, Box 69700, Los Angeles, Cal., 90069. For a personal reply, enclose a stamped, self - addressed envelope. Hate to write letters?

NEW YORK (AP) - A umnist counts that year lost in which he doesn't write at least one article telling young people how to live. The trouble with most advice o! this kind is that it consists of high-sounding platitudes. It isn't specific enough. So, as my good deed for 1966, here are a series of down-o- earth suggestions that should help any young man live a longer and happier life: Never marry a girl for her money unless she signs half of it over to you before the ceremony. Try to associate with people who have qualities you admire. But also keep one bum as a friend, too. Seeing the mistakes he makes should-help keep you from making them yourself. Always keep your seat belt buckled while riding on airplanes or automobiles. If you're not a "take-charge" type, don't go into business for yourself. You'll do better working for others. Eat a good breakfast, a light unch and a light dinner. Don't put up with bad meals. Insist that your wife learn to be a really good cook. It'll make you both happier. Don't go skiing after 30. or play tennis after 40, unless you can run t mile without exhaustion," Buy shoes and ihirts • half size larger than you need. You may he choking your mind and feet to death without knowing it. u'H advice. If you have to take aspirin more than once a month, change your way of living. Make your vacations real adventures. Avoid going to the same place more than two years in a row. If your boss or your job make you desperately unhappy, change them both — but better do it before you are 35. Ask for a raise in pay once a year, whether you need it or not, whether you get it or not. Unless you yourself think you are worth more to the firm, the firm won't either. Listen carefully when anyone offers to give you an inside tip on the stock market, and write it down. Then tear up the paper, and forget it. Walk three miles every day it isn't raining, and two miles when it is. See a sunrise and read a poem at least once every week as long as you live. If you can't tell your, wife you love her when you come home tired from the office, tell her at breakfast the next morning. Sometimes that takes even more character. Never buy more than three things at one time on the installment plan. This advice, faithfully followed, may not make a young man a millionaire. But at least t should help keep him out of ail or the poorhouse, That's ibout all you can expect from ^rrouaai SURFERS AHOY!
