Afternoon temperatures arc expected lo average in the mid 90s and night-time temperatures In the low 70s. Sunshine will prevail about 70 percent of Ihe daylight hours and will keep soil temperatures in the 90s for n dally average. The main (rack of low pressure disturbances in this par! of the country is expected lo extend from Georgia into New England. This will keep most of the heavy rain patterns soulhcast of the Dells, and rainfall will probably" be a little heavier in Iho south than in the north here In the Delta area.

CHEMICALS DIVISION South Clnlborno Avenue, NowOrfean* 13, Lout*Farm By BEN MCCARTY Associated Preji Staff Writer The planting of late summer and fall pastures and weed con- rol has raised seven! questions rom Mississippi farmers. In answering, the stale extension service says if there Is ample moisture or an irrigation system, sudan or millet can be planted now. The crops would be ready for grazing late August or September. For planting these grasses, the land should be disked shallow and Ihen culti-packed following planting. ond etc I960, u lo-M-7 Farm Safety Week Declared In State Beginning Sunday I I - H 8 The week of July 24-30 has been!,, 15 . 8 designated as "Farm S a f e t y ! Week" by the National Safety! l 6 ''" Council, according to Owen Coop- president of the Mississippi! Safety Council. , 16 . 17 . 6 Cooper staled that farm acci-j 16 '"' s ilcnts have been increasing each year and have been proportionate to the increase in farm machinery. 'Most farm accidents involve farm tractors." Cooper said, "and large percentage involved operators wKo were under 15 years of age." The Council president commented that state law does not require operators license for farm equipment and "that is the way] t should be." "However," he said, "this does not eliminate the responsibility of he tractor owner lo see that the operator of his vehicle is a competent and safe driver." The Council president observed :hat practically all farms -- hill and delta -- are increasing production through the use of good machinery. "It is necessary for our good farmers to recognize the need for observing good safety rules while operating farm equipment in the field just as they do when operat ing a truck or automobile on '.he highway," he said. Farmers should apply lime as the land is fallowed and disked in getting the land ready for (all pastures. The phosphate, potash and nitrogen or mixed fertilizer should wait until planting lime. Clip Weeds Maturing weeds should be clipped off permanent pastures to give the grass and lespcdeza a chance for more growth. On pastures where weeds cannot be controlled, you should clip the weeds off. If this isn't possible, alternate the grazing. This will help the grass and clover come back and aid in preventing overgrazing. Now through September, the extension service recommends dividing the pasture into four areas and then graze each for one week. By the time the cows get back lo pasture No. 1, it will be ready Pastures shouldn't be clippet after the middle of August excepl to control weeds. And then, don't clip closer than . n ix inches above fie grouniJ. Hero's a report on cotton over he state: Coahoma, Qullman and Tunica counties: Cotton Is clean and has a good color.
