The Editor's Letter Box The Fells Killing (To Ilic editor:) There appeared in your paper Wednesday, Au- fuist 19. an article relative to the killing' of Milton Felts of•.- Joiner Ark., which contained several mistakes which we think -should be corrected. Milton Pelts, 38, farmer of Joiny Ark., died at 3 a.m. Wednesday at Baptist hospital from a pistol bullet wound fired from his own gun, which he had loaned to Ed Speck sometime before He IhouRhl-. Speck was one of his friends. I I The shooting followed an argument which happened earlier in the day when Speck drew a sun on Felts Felts reasoned with Speck and thought It was settled and left Basselt io come down to Joiner to call Sheriff (deputy) S.. E. Harrison to disarm Speck but couldn't get In touch with the sheriff. A few hours Inter as I-elts and his companion were sit ling in Fells' car in front of a negro cafe. Speck ran out from where he was hiding nnd jumped on Ihe fender of the car and said, "Milton, I'm going to kill .you." and fired. The bullet entered Felts' right eye and came out the back of his head, breaking the glass in the car door Felts was not armed at any time during Ihe day. Thanking you in advance , The Felts Family.

Money bock if it isn't the best you've ever used. In showing the value of winter •cover crops In maintaining soil fertility and crop yields, Fuller- ion points to recently tabulated results of experiments conducted by the agricultural experiment sta- I lions in several Southern states.! | Some tests were run continuous-1 ly on (he same land for several. years, one running, over 30 years.I T) rn .. The summary shows that lii' ou ' approximately 250 comparisons of yields made between cotton grown following a cover crop and cotton grown without a cover crop, but otherwise under identical con- oson as a textile nber, Whllaker reports lie cites the automobile Industry as """ of the many Industrial nsc.s •ol posed Fill Would Damage His Property.

Austrian peas, vetches, clovers, rye, and oats were the cover- crops used in these tests. For corn the results were nbout the same.

These long-time benefits, Fullerton says, result largely from less washing of the land, from a saving in plant food that would /otherwise leach out, from added plant food in the case of legumes, and from better soil condition caused by turning under organic matter. The cash payments made for seeding certain winter cover crops under the Agricultural Conservation Program would make it possible for many farmers 'to put in winter cover crops with but little May Result in „ of Lcgum and Grass Seeds. over a long lerton says. Not only With seeds of many soil-conserving croiis nearly ready for harvest it is time for North Mississippi county farmers who expect to take part in the Agricultural Conservation Program In 1937 to make plans for conserving seed supplies for use next year, stales J. O. Fullerton, county agent. "Tlic farmer who saves an ample supply of legume and grass seeds this fall will b c In a better iwsition lo take purl in a conser- yation program in 1037," M r . p^, „ will the effects of drouth be reflected in the supply of seed, but the need for those crops will be greater next year because of Uie drouth. Where it Is practicable for farmers to harvest the seeds of soil- conserving crops such as cowpeas soybeans, crotolarln. velvetbeans] etc., they may not only supply their' own needs but also those of their .neighbors, the county agent said On the other hand, lie points out that in some cases where a farmer does not have sufficient acreage in soil-conserving crops to yield enough seeds for his own uses he may be able to add to his supply by harvesting his neighbor's seeds .on shares. .
