FRIDAY, AUGUST 11, 1944 Winter Legumes Build Up Soil ^Turning Under Crop efore Planting Corn Or Cotton Dps Yield Soli improvement through the use of winter legumes hns become im annual pr«ctice on over half a million acres of Arkansas farms, Keltli J. Bilbrcy, county agent, says. Tests conducted by llic University of Arkansas College of Agriculture and demonstrations on farms in every section of Hie Slate show that turning under a good crop of winter legumes before plaining cotton or corn Ls the best way to increase yields, the county agent said. Hairy vetch, he said is the best Adapted winter legume for the wide variety of soli conditions found In Arknnsns. it Is well suited to low- liroduclng soils and will stand more cold tlinii Austrian peas nnd bur clover. Hairy vetch seed should be sown at the rate of 20 pounds per acre In September, the county agent said. Because of the shortage of hniry vetch seed, many farmers who have used vetcli in the past may linve to use a subslitulc Mils year Austrian peas, if || 1C seed can be obtained, will make a pood substitute although they are not as cold resistant as hairy vetch. This dis- ixlvaiitase can he offset to' some extent by planting (be peas early in September, using at • least 35 ssced |wr acrc ' thc count - v In Mississippi County where bur clover has become an important crop the acreage should be increased, the county agent believes.

Drain whcr ready lo prccook. When canning with sugar, pre- cuok In one of (wo ways: (1) U fruit is Juicy, add sugar—one-half cup to each quart of iinco<ikcd peaehes-and bent to (lie boiling point. (2) For less Juicy fruit, make a sirup by boiling sugar iiiul cither water or Juice extracted from extra peaches together [or live minutes. A thin, moderately thin, or medium sirup may be mndc. depending on (he siijjiiY supply and fiimlly tastes. To make a thin sirup, use one cup of sugar lo three cups of juice or water; for a moderately Ihin sirup, use one cup to 2 cups of liriuid; and for n medium sirup, use one cup each of sugar and liquid. Tlinii prrajok Hie fruit In llic sirup until it Is healed throughout but is not soft. Pack hot peaches evenly into hoi Jnrs, leaving one-half Inch head space. Cover with boiling liquid, still leaving one-half Inch nt (op. H usually takes three-fourths to one cup liquid to each jar. Taking care to have a good proportion of solid food and liquid, and leaving right head space help to keep the peaehcs from losing liquid during canning. They will not be left high and dry to turn dark. Work out any air bubbles by running a knife blade down tlie Jar side, and If necessary, add more liquid. Wipe jar rim with a clean, damp cloth. One sticky bit call keep jiir from scaling airtight. Put on inr top and adjust according to directions for tlie particular type of lid being used. Next, process the jars of fruit in a boHlng-watcr-bath canner. Have water boiling In canner and put each Jar in us soon as it Is filled and ready. When Jars are all in canner, add more hot water If needed. It must cover jar tops by an inch or two. When thc water bolls hard, put canner lid on and begin counting time. Process peaches 20 minutes. Keep heat even under the canner: if temperature drops, Jars , muy have liquid drawn out. Add morn boiling hot water If needed to keep jar tops well covered. When the time is up lake out jars. Finish scaling If type of jiir requires. Set Jnrx out to cool right side I up and away from drafts. F. S.
