Cotton harvest was delayed the alter part of last week, the Service aid In Its weekly crop report, but he return of sunny weather this week sent the pickers back to the lelds, Ashley County already has re- lorted one-third of Its cotton crop gathered, the Service said, and Chl- ofc County has reported 60 per cent if its crop open. Late cotton is maturing fnst but leavy damage from boll weevils and 'ioll worms is reported in the north- lastern and east central areas. Poi- .oning continues In some fields but has been stopped for the most part. The need for cotton pickers is be- rinning to be felt in many areas and }ie shortage will become more ap- >arent soon. Imported Mexican labor Is helping the situation to some extent. Much early corn has been harvested with some counties report- ng up to 40 per cent harvested. Late :orn was damaged bndly by hot, dry leather and worms but some of the lat« crop was helped by recent rains. Soybeans are maturing fast and iome have been harvested. Late beans will be helped by. the rains and reports are now more optimistic as Jar as yield Is concerned. invite yOO 10 field-test the Farmalt Super C at our expense.

INTERNATIONAL'HARVESTER On Missco Farms »» Count; Ajenl Keitk J. Bllbrey People Clarence Moore at Promised Land has a very nice stand of barley up. Joe Davis' son at Manila was seeding vetch yesterday In cotton four and one-half feet tall, He had wheel shields on the tractor that were moving the limbs and preventing bolls from being crushed. Earl Wildy, south of Leachville, has a very good and very productive fescue and Jadino clover pasture. It u on some of his better land near Buffalo Ditch. Wesley Stalling. 1 ;, west of Blytheville, was perhaps the first man In the county to combine soybeans this year. He combined some Wa- basli soybeans, early maturing variety, nine or ten days ago. H. s. Simmons at Dull went on that trip to Mississippi with us last week also. I wns afraid I would cave someone's name out. I wonder if he is in the dog house Changed .My Mind Karlier in the year I had said soon because I don't know. Albert Hollingsworth at No. 9 las picked 50 bales off 100 acres. He did not fertilize, he did not poison for insects. In other words, we still don'l know how to mature a crop and make it open early. Some C'orn W. A. Thieme at Nfanila has harvested 64 bushels of Kunk's 527W whit* corn per acre from 19 acres He sold the corn in Memphis foi $1.70 per bushel. He used 66 pounds of ammonium nitrate under th« corn, then side dressed it with 4S jounds of anhydrous ammonia. HE also expects to get 20 -bushels o soybeans per acre from' the same field. Gene Bradberry, Lost Cane, har vested 75 bushels of corn per acr from a thickly planted hybrid. Lewis Townsenct at Manila alsc harvested 75 bushels of corn fron some test nkif.i this \vpplr Thpv H] I merchant* can capitalize locally on Cotton Week Itself. It will b* d*- tho national Impact of Cotton Week. Campaign literature will be adaptable to the spring and summer cotton selling season' as well as to that perhaps no cotton in the coun ty should be defoliated before Oct. 1 Well, I'm learning, and I have changed my mind. Although cotton is not opening very well now, it is maturing very rapidly, I would say ten per cent of the 'cotton in North Mississippi County Is mature enough to defoliate today, It the owners wanted to. One measure of timing is to wait at least twenty five days after 'the last blooms you expect to make cotton, If you have June cotton that was still blooming on the fifteenth of September, surely you would not want to defoliate that before the fifteenth of October. Howard Perkins at Manila defoliated his cotton on the Gene Late Root Growth U Encouraged By Autumn Mulch Late summer and early fall are favorable times for root growth. This Intelligence may seem odd to most home owners who consider leaf fall, the inaugural of the dormant season. There IK a difference, however, between soil and air temperatures. It takes many weeks of warm sunshine to heat the soil after winter's chill weather. Maximum soil temperature often is not reached until August. In fall a warm soil gives off heat and may retain a higher average temperature than the air during the autumn mouths. It you are busy transplanting thL month, make sure you provide the new landscape citizens with an effective mulch. This advice U given by Martin L. Davey, Jr., head o] the Davey tree experts. He says a nice-blanket of peat moss helps to hold the store<l-up soil heat aut prolongs the period, of root growth Peat moss is the preferred mulch because it mines with the soil after he need for the mulch has passed Mr. Davey adds that the mulch should be thorough and heavy, to wit:Protect the entire root area with a three Inch blanket of the peal moss mixed with n small propor- :ion of soil. The mix prevents surface blowing in dry weather am averts loss through floating In wa Ler. If the possibility of weeds In your garden doesn't send you into a dither, you can mulch with straw or hay. By encouraging root growth, \oi give your new planting the oppor Fleeman air base land last Satur- ay. Maybe you would like to watch hat field if you are interested In esults. Charlie Brogdon at Blytheville defoliated some Delta Pine Fox otton this week. Calcium cyanamld is the material most often used here for defolia- ioii. Uses twenty to twenty five >ounds per acre, depending on size nd condition or the crop. Where Did They Got Some of our farmers went to Texas. I don't know how many are down there this week but they are really In dead earnest about trying i to get some Mexican nationals for cotton picking. Charles apd Richani Rose, E. A Stacy, and Cobl Bowers are in Texas, because I went bj :heir places this week. 312 South 2nd Phone 6863 signed for application to women's apjwrel, piece goods, home furnishings, domestics, men's and boy* 1 furnishings and work clothing.

He expects to get 18 or 20 more. He planted Stoneville 2B on April 28 and It came right up. He used 200 pounds of 3-0-18 fertilizer, planted the cotton on good ridge loam soil and poisoned the' cotton three times with Toxaphene.
