FARM NEWS-FEA1WRES Sharp Increase In Farm Prices Economist Says '• Production May Not ! Support Valuations. ' Prices of farm land In Arkansas arc now almost double prcpar levels, according to c. P. Lund of the ..University of Arkansas College ol Agriculture. Up D3 per cent above 1935-30 average, Arkansas land prices have increased more thim Die average throughout the nation which Is a 71 per cent galu over prewnv values. "An Important point for prospective buyers ami farmers of Arkansas to keep in mind is that In most instances the net income of farmers has probably reached it.s peak," the Extension economist In county land nse planning cnulioii- ed. "They should consider, even more carefully than before, future debt repayment ability before buying high-priced land or taking on any other debts." The end of the war has had liltle effect on the farm land market, Mr, Lund said, ns the development of food shortages has caused a continued demand for farm products. While no indication is seen (hat farm land prices have reached their peak, the pressing demand for fann products is likely to be temporary, the economist believes, and may not support the continued high laud prices.

There arc the cabbage worms with the velvety skin and dark green color, the piilc green cabbage looper thnl humps up In the middle like a measuring worm when in crawls, and the Inrvnc of the diamond back moth, corn earworms mid others. Spraying or dusting with lead nrseimte or calcium avsennle arc recommended bj Miss Cora Lee Coleman, home demonstration ngcnt, to obtain good control of the worms. The recipe she (;«ve for the spray was one ounce of lend nrsennte in one gallon of water, plus n wetting agent to make the spray stay on the leaves. For the wetting agent, either one lablespoonful of yellow laundry soap, one level tcnspoonful of soybean flour, or one-half pint of skim milk to one gallon of spray mixture. Calcium or lead arsenatc is vised without mixing for dusting, she pointed out. These arc poisonous, she warned, stating they should not be used on cabbage within two weeks of harvest.
