COURIER NEWS Blanket of Green Plan Underway Acreage Controls Gives Emphasis to Cover Crop Program A prospect of acreage controls on cotton ami corn In 1950 has placed extra emphasis on North Mississippi County's Blanket of Orcen program now underway (or tile fourth straight year. County AKCIU Keith Bllbrcy said that, Arkansas' Blanket of Green *oal this year Is 1.000.000 acres of H»ie green growing crop on the iimcl tills winter. North Mississippi non nly farmers sowed 400.000 pounds of winter legumes last fall and lie said the Soils Management Committee expects the seeding to rea'-h 500.000 pounds this fall. "These winter.Icgrme cover crops add nitrogen to the soil, prevent winter leaching of plant food and when- turned mule- In the spring, add valuable organic matter to the soil," Mr. Bilbrey said. Legumes that, are recommended for North Mississippi County .include: hairy vetch and Doark vetch. Austrian winter peas, bur clover, and crimson clover. Adapted small Rrains include rye. barley, wheat, and some out varieties. A combination of winter legumes and small grains are often grown In this county and It is almost an exclusive practive west of Big Lake, Mr. .Bilbrey Indicated. Seed Production . Urged Production of winter cover ; crop seed may offer ->rr- farmers in this county another good use for land that may , be diverted from cotton and corn crops by acreage controls. "This is particularly tnie in the area west of Big Lake.' he said, "because the sandier lands appear to be more adapted to « satisfactory seed production. Last year North Mississippi County Imported nearly $80,000 worth of winter legume seed grown In other -aunties, and a larger part of this •pi'.and could be filled In future "years by seed grown in the county. Doark vetch Is a neu- variety recently developed on one of Arkansas' experiment station/;. It has some of the characteristics of hairy vetch, Including winter hardiness, but Is a much more prolific pro-; ducer of seed.-," . • ; i "Several Doark vetch plots are' being established In the county this year for the first time in an at- tcmptita^iyiake....vetch seed production more * profitable and succes's- lul," Mr. Bilbrey. said.

Social Security Credits Necessary To Obtain Benefits "Bought ami paid for but not received." Those were the words used by L. E Bradford, manager of the Jonesboro office of the Social Security Administrati---. to describe uhat happens when a worker jails to show his social security card to each new employer. "When the end 'of a calendar quarter rolls around." Bradford continued, "the company has lo make its report of social security numbers, names, wages, and taxes. If you have shown your social security card to your boss, your name and number wilt be shown correctly, and you will have that much more to your credit in your old-age and survivors insurance account." Social security claims are based :i what the records show. Wages that are not credited can't be used in determining whether a worker is Insured. And wages that weren't credited won't fatten the monthly benefit checks^-."Since employees reap the benefits of social security, while your employer gets nothing but the job of keeping records, paying the tax and making the reports." Bradford concluded. "I urge you to show your card to him the first day you report on > new Job. By doing this, you not only help him, but you will protect your own social security account.
