Dowfume W-40, n chemical manufactured ical Company, by the Dow Chem- are being used in Four test plots on which expert- 1 mcius for {he combating of Uvo cotton diseases—fusaruim and Tcr- tieiltium wilt—have been established in North Mississippi Comity by two chemical companies both cf which are trying new chemicals. Tlin latest of the^e test plots, for fMFnrinm wilt, wc-re sot up Wednesday by the Dow Chemical Company of Midland, Mich. The fiisarinni plots, both one-half an Eicre in sivie, ai'e located at I'romised Land and at YarDro, La.'-t week, according to County Aijent Keith BiUjrcy. the Julius Hyman Company of Denver, Colo., set up two similar plots nt Armorel take window boxes as their com- and at - Poplar Corner for experl- tnunity improvement project. This ments club plans to encourage all members \viU. and others In the community to The place window boxes under the windows of their homes. boxes are to contain blooming Rowers throughout the summer season. The Brown Home Demonstration Club has quilted eight quilts .since January 1, as a community service, Bnynton ' The Boynton Community Improvement Club met last Friday night. The mail box committee, headed by Mrs, Tom Lane, made a report and the type mail box standards to be used in the community Jifeis decided on by the members, Vhe road sign committee .headed by Mr, Clyde Hawkins, also made a report on the 'cost of the signs to be used on the highways and side roads leading into the community. The committee was given the authority to have the signs made and put up on the designated places. Money From Scrap Many of the home demonstration club members and also the 4-H Club members In North Mississippi County have made quite a bit of money Irom the sale of nylon cor- SHgeR, The flowers are made from discarded nylon hose which have had the color removed and then tinted the desired color. An estimate of about $700 worth has been eold to date. Betty Webb, an Armorel 4-H member, has sold $110 worth, and her business is stilt goad. She has a sister in Chicago who takes orders for them. The report from C3i lea go Is, ' 'Keep ma k i ng them—I can sell all you make." Some of trie home demonstration club women who*have sold corsages are: Mrs. Bill Cable, Mrs. T. R. Watson, Mrs. R. E. D avis, Mrs. afc^onard Smith, Mrs. Charley Jnnes, ^ttts. Lyman Henson, Mrs. Tom Kennett, and Mr.s. Roy Thomas. Ihe use of this chemical. Vcrticiltiam wilt fo; ias been one of the big problems to cotton farmers hi Mississippi County and so far there has beer no control found for the disease. NOTK'K OF HEARING TO V.U'ATi: A CERTAIN DESIGNATED these tests. Mr. Bitbrey said. Dowfume W-40 is prlmnrilv for the control of nematodes, miscro- c.worms that, prey on the roots of plants, Mr. Bjlbrey explained, and manufacturers of the chemical believe that through the control of nematodcs, fusarium wilt can be better controlled. Attack Roots Nomatodes attack the roots of plants, causlug knotting and thereby shut off the water and food supply to the plant While nema- todcs are not the direct cause of j fusarium wilt, which Is a fungus i disease, it Is believed that Muo""h ; their work on the roots they In"*--- 1 the disease, Mr. Bilbrcy said. This chemical, he said, is a fuml- gant. It fumigates the soil, killing the nematodes.- Mr. Bilbrcy slated that there wcer several cases of fusarium wilt in North Mississippi County last year and in one case everv stalk on an entire acre oC land, died from the disease. The verticillhun wilt plots are located on farms of the Armorel Planting Company at Armorel and Rancill Hicks west of Poplar Cor-| ner on Buffalo Ditch. Both are one-half acre in size. The Hyman Company, Mr. Bilbrey said, is_ using a new chemical known as P-1G2 on these plots. In earlier experiments verticillium writ in egg plant was controlled through Notice is hereby given ihat Trinity uaptist Cnircli and Garvin Hotley has filed with the City Coutici of BlytheviUe, Arkansas, a peiiilor to vacate and abandon that purtlor of Vine street running West Iron Lilly Street lo the alley runnln?

Their new bulletin, just received, on the' work done last year is a splendid supplement lo their bulletin the year before on mechanical production of cotton. In the summary of the new bulletin I find Diese important quotes: "Co-sis of wectl control at the Cotton Branch Station were from SI 1.19 to $15.91 less, per acre where weeds were controlled by chemi- icals rather than by hand hoeing. (Hand hoeing was figured at 40 cents an hour.)" The average difference In favor of chemical weed control at the Delta Substation, Clavkedale, Ark;5 n '•;' .s, w as $tf. 71 p L' r ac re.
