*4-H In Franklin County Club Day "Proof Of 4-H Program By ROSS NELSON « This Saturday will be Franklin ICounty Club Day. This annual event will be at Ottawa High School. The following events will start at 8:30 a.m.: demonstrations or illustrated tallks, model meetings, project talks and public speaking. The music will start about 8 aim. Folk games and musical games will begin at 1 p.m. in the gym. I would like to invite the public to come and see the 500 4-H members f r o m 19 4-H clubs compete for blue, red or white ribbons. I would urge you to see at : 1 e a s t one of '• each — model meetings, demon- strations, project talks and pub- Ross lie speaking. By viewing each of these you would see what 4-H members gain: parliamentary procedure, the ability to talk before a group and what they have learned in their projects. If you have considered joining 4-H now is the time to observe what 4-H members do. County Club Day has many objectives, one of which, is to provide 4-H members an opportunity to develop skills in demonstrations, talks, good meeting procedure and recreation. By competing and observing they not only improve their own ability but learn what other members and clubs are doing. This provides additional opportunity for 4-H members to participate in music and drama and to share their talents. The one- act plays and dramatics will be March 2 in the morning. Members will demonstrate the values of 4-H club work. Those who attend will learn more about 4-H. There will be information regarding homemaking, agriculture and family living. While judging at Miami County last week, I learned new ideas, new techniques and other things. I feel I learn more each time I judge or attend a 4-H meeting. The young active minds always are alert for something new to do and tell about. Before the day is over many new friendships will be started. These will grow as they meet during th year: at 4-H Sunday, the businessmen's picnic, judging school and contest, style review, best-groomed boy contest and the county fairs. The 4-H'ers will be tired when it's over, but the memories will remain for some time. It's a lot of work for everyone, but I enjoy watch ng tomorrow's leaders performing today. I know you will, too. Can Remove Undesirable Brush With Chemicals By EMMETT L. RICHTER SCS Staff Member The chemicals, 2, 4-D and 2, : 4, 5-T are the most useful her; bicides for control of undesir: able trees and brush. ; The ester form is best for use . on this woody growth. To pro- : vide a basis for comparison of the killing power, the "acid equivalent" is stated on the label as pounds • per • gallon. One gallon of concentrate which has an acid equivalent of four pounds would have the jame plant killing power as four pounds of acid. The chemicals, 2, 4-D and 2, 4, 5-T, should be bought on the basis of the cost per pound of actual acid. Divide the weight of actual acid in pounds into the cost per gallon to arrive at the To Explain Feed Grain Program The signup for the 1963 feed grain program now is underway in the Franklin County ASCS County Office, Russell Wray, chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation county committee, has announced. The signup period started Feb. 1 and will continue through March 22. As for 1962, the program covers the three major feed grains of corn, grain sorghum, and barley. Farmers interested in provisions of the 1963 Feed Grain Program are invited to attend a meeting on Friday, Feb. 15, in the Ottawa Co-Op meeting room beginning at 2 p.m. General details of the program will be explained with a question and answer period to follow. In general, provisions follow those for 1961 and 1962 crops by giving feed grain producers an opportunity to participate in the program by reducing acreages at j least 20 per cent and devoting rthem to an approved conserving 'use. • By participating, they will re: ceive diversion payments and • price - support payments, and ; they will be eligible to take part :in the price-support loan pro*gram. • One important change from : programs for previous years, • Wray explained, is the price-sup- : port payment which participating : farmers will receive on the normal production of the acres planted to the feed grains in 1963 'The payments have been set at : 18 cents per bushel on corn, 16 cents per bushel on grain sorghum and 14 cents per bushel ;pn barley. Unlike the regular :price - support loan, the rates *for the price - support pay- >;ments will be the same through- lout the country and will not vary •by counties. ;' Also, this year the price-sup•port loans or purchase agree- imenta will be available to pro- wgrain participants on the entire ;crop produced on the 1963 feed ttgrtin .acreage. Last year, the ;lp*n w*s restricted to the nor- 'm*l production of such acreage. Tte Herald pays IS every week or tbe best news tip turned in y • reader. actual cost per pound. The cheapest product per gallon may actually be the most costly, and similarly the highest priced product may actually be the cheapest when figured on the basis of cost per pound of actual acid. Basal sprays are prepared by mixing esters of 2, 4, 5-T and 2, 4-D with diesel oil. Apply the spray material to the lower 18 inches of the woody growth you wish to kill. Wet the bark all around the stem until the spray material runs down the stem of the plant and into the soil at the base. With basal sprays you can kill brush and trees up to four inches in diameter, and you can get good results throughout the year. Trees larger than 4 inches in diameter often have bark that is too thick for basal sprays to penetrate. These large trees can be killed with herbicide applied to the sapwood through cuts in the bark. These cuts or frills are notches cut in the bark which encircle the tree and act as cups to hold the herbicide. Make the frill by ringing the trunk of the tree with overlapping axe cuts that penetrate sapwood at least 1 A inch. Five ounces of an ester concentrate containing two pounds of 2, 4-D and two pounds of 2, 4, 5-T acid equivalent per gallon is the amount of "concentrate" to mix with one gallon of diesel fuel or one gallon of this same "concentrate" mixed with twenty-five gallons of die- sel fuel. An ester concentrate containing t w o pounds of 2, 4- D and two pounds of 2, 4, 5- T per gallon is the most desirable concentrate since there is usually several species to be controlled in a given area and few species are resistant to both. If trees are felled, the freshly cut surface of the stump should be treated immediately to prevent sprouting, Preparations for cut surface treatments are mixed in the same proportions as for basal sprays. Enough solution should be applied to completely wet the perimeter of the stump and any exposed roots. Application may be with a knapsack sprayer, paint brush, or tractor sprayer equipped with a hand boom. Change Now to The GAS That doesn't "Use - up" so fast Ottawa Skelgas John Martin, Mgr. 505 N.

OTTAWA HERALD is ALWAYS There Awaiting Your Convenience THE OtTAWA HERALD Wednesday, Feb. 15,1861 To Release New Soybean Variety A new soybean variety, Clark 63, will be released to certified seed growers this spring so seed should be generally available in 1964, Dr. C. Pearis Wilson, director of the Kansas Agricultural Experiment station at Kansas State University, has announced. Clark 63 is like the old Clark variety except that the new one resists both bacterial pustule and Phytophthora rot diseases. It was developed cooperatively by several state experiment stations and the Agricultural Research Service of the United States Department of Agriculture. Also re- teasing it this spring are Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio. Clark 63 is a medium - maturing variety that yields and resembles the old Clark variety in other agronomic characteristics. Where either bacterial pustule or Phytophthora rot disease affects yields, Clark 63 can be expected to outyield susceptible varieties. Phytophthora rot has attacked Kansas soybeans but bacterial pustule has not yet been an economic factor in soybean production in Kansas. This Pencil CAN MAKE YOU MONEY By reading this message ...
