Failure to thin or a delay in thinning has resulted In a marked reduction in crop In several Instances in North Mississippi Counly, she explained. Growth is retarded when plants are overcrowded. Delayed thinning may help, but a Blunted plant seldom fully recovers, Mrs. Hollman said that with vegetables life leaf -lettuce, spinach, mustard and other salad greens, plants may be thinned and used for eating. The remaining plants should be spaced about three to four inches apart. Beets and carrots should atso be thinned. A good practice with these vegetables' is 'to thru lite plants »'hen they are quite small to a dis iance of about two inches. When these have grown to small size, pull every other plant for table use leaving the remaining root vegetables about four Inches apart. Mrs. Hollman advised thinning other vegetable plants according to their space requirements. North Mississippi County gardeners have also found that thinning lime is the ideal lime to apply a side-dressing of nitrogen. A^ the vows are weeded and thinned the plant food is worked into the soil lo give the remaining plants a quick boost In growth.

Insect Damage to State's 1948 Cotton Crop Placed at $19,217,000 by Expert MEMPHIS, Tenn., June 10—L. T. Barrniger, chairman of the Arkansas mill of the National Cotton Council, said yesterday thnt Arkansas cotton farmers would have been able to profit an additional *19 217.000 if insects had not reduced tlie stale's 1943-49 cotton yield approximately 5 per cent. Mr. Barringer, In announcing initiation of a campaign by the Cotton Council to reduce damage to cotton by pests during 1940, said last year's losses in Arkansas amounted to an average of two cents per pound of lint harvested. 'Pests last year kept out of production approximately 116.019 bales of cotton and an estimated +4,000 tons of cottonseed. Based on average prices, this lint would have brought farmers of the state some H6.317.000 and th'e seed would have meant an additional profit of $2,- Proper Feeding And Care of Hens Aids Egg Yields Seventeen to 19 eggs a day from 23 hens is the record reported recently by Mrs. J. A. Ward of Boynton of her hen house flock. Mrs. Ward who is an active member of the Boynton Home Demonstration Club told Mrs. Gertrude B. Holiman, North Mississippi County home demonstration agent of her egg yield and explained how -she cares for her chickens. Mrs. Ward thinks sanatation Is imporUnt in hating a healthy flock, so she cleans her hen house three times each week. She uses lime on the floors and sprayn the hen house with DDT when needed. And as a result, she said, her chickens are never infested with lice, mite* nor flea*. Another Important factor, Mrs- AVard says, is .proper feeding. She feeds her hens shorts and corn ar lets them run on an excellent alfalfa field. 900,000." the council spokesman added. "Recommendations on how best to control cotton pests in Arkansas already have been issued. This information, which may be obtained from county agents or vocational agriculture workers, tells farmers how to apply potent insecticides which will control effectively sucl: pests as the boll weevil, boll u'orm. pink boll worm, cotton aphid, flea- hopper, thrlps and others." Mr. Barringer explained tha though the percentage of cottoi damaged by insects throughout the Cotton Belt last year was the sec ond lowest since 1924. an estimated 6.6 per cent of the crop, valued a approximately $202.264,000, was de stroyeri. He observed further that a mild winter in many cotton belt state favored a higli survival of cotton pcsLs. . and said that the Colto Council is warning cotton farmers tha t unless effective insect contro measures are taken, damage to this year's crop may run much higher I than that incurred In 1948.
