Brown's Bylines THE OTTAWA HERALD Q Wednesday, Feb. 13, 1963 T Value Of Grasses In Beef Gains Studied At Ottawa KANSAS RARITY — Mrs. Frank Chick holds an animal uncommon to Kansas, known as a ringtailed cat. Chicks caught it in trap in their chicken house at Winfield. Robert Wimmer, assistant professor of biology at Southwestern College, said these animals have been spotted previously in Cowley County, but are most uncommon to rest of state. Conservation Comments By DON BROWN Does smooth brome, tall fescue, orchard grass or reed's canary grass produce the best rate of grain on grazing cattle? The answer to this question is the basis for one of the research studies now in progress at Kansas State University's East Central Experiment Field, Ottawa. John E. Braum tendent of the field. This is t h e third phase of a 4-year study to measure the rate of g a i n through i n t e n- sive is superm- Next spring the animals will be returned to the test areas at a rate of one to three head per acre, depending upon the grass growth. The four cool season grasses used in the tests have been maintained at a fairly high fertility level through the use of 100 pounds of nitrogen per acre. The steers are weighed every 28 days during the test and will be marketed in July, August and September. Complete information about this and other grass studies at the East Central Field wil] be reported at the annual Fal] Field Day, Sept. 23. Lyndon Horseman Wins First Learned A Lot In Weevil Study By IRVIN F. ROSS At the beginning of this century, the Mexican boll weevil crossed the border into Texas where it destroyed the valuable cotton crop. To save this important industry, the Secretary of Agriculture called on Dr. Seaman A. Knapp who was conducting farm demonstrations in the area to find a way to combat this pest. While looking for a method £ to stop the weevil, Dr. Knapp accidentally. discover- '^ ed "The right -, psychological key which opened the door to the farmer's c o o p e r a- tion." This key was the techni- Farm Crop Insurance Available A review of the Federal Crop Insurance program in Kansas by Russell Bowling of Manhattan, the.state director, indicates that coverage is available in a num ber of counties on the major farm crops, In pointing out that the U. S Department of Agriculture project basically covers out-of-poct et expenses fanners have incur red to the time of a loss, Bowling listed the crops and the counties in which this insurance is in effect. Coverage on wheat is available in all but four of the 105 coun ties in Kansas: Comanche, Lea venworth, Morton and Wyan dotte. Twenty . four counties were added last year. Dryland grain sorghum cover age will be available in 13 coun ties this year, 12 of them for the first time. Stafford, a pilo county since 1959, has up to now been the only county in this program. Counties added are Brown Butler, Cowley, Dickinson, McPherson, Marion, Reno, Repub- and Washington. Insurance on irrigated grain sorghum is now available to pro ducers in Finney, Ha s k e 11 Kearney, Meade, Scott, S e ward Stanton, Stevens and Wich ita counties. Soybean and com crop insur ance has been expanded to three counties each for 1963, Coffey Lyon and Osage counties were added to the previous soybean counties: Linn, Labette, Frank lin, Crawford, Cherokee and Bour bon. Corn coverage has been a vailable in Atchison, Bourbon Brown, Doniphan, Douglas, Frank lin, Jackson, Jefferson, Linn Nemaha, Shawnee and Washing ton counties. The three adde< for 1963 are Crawford Miam and Osage. Bowling said that in 1962 mor thai. 22,000 Kansas farmers ha Federal Crop Insurance policies, Can't Kiss And Drive KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)-William L. Strong, 23, charged with weaving in and out of traffic, explained: "I was kissing my girl, judge." Municipal Judge Alex Peebles replied: "Driving a motor car is a full-time job. Kissing is a full- time job. Like alcohol and gunpowder, the two just don't mix." Strong was fined $10 Tuesday for careless driving. grazing during the fall, spring, and summer seasons, Braum reports. Ninety head of Herford steers averaging about 330 pounds were first turned into the 3-acre test pastures in mid-October, at a rate of one and a third to two animals per acre. During the current winter months, the weight of the test cattle is maintained by putting the animals in a nearby 80-acre field of cool season grasses which was not grazed last fall. The steers also are fed a daily ration of alfalfa hay and three pounds of a 3-to-l mixture of grain and |protein. An area auctioneer and horseman, well known in horse circles, won top honors at the Kansas Saddle Horse Association convention at Salina recently. Charles H. Beatty, Lyndon, owner, trainer and rider of the palomino gelding.. Golden Duke, won the championship trophy and ribbon in the Palomino Bridal Path division. The KSHA, an organization known nationally for its work in promoting the light horse industry in Kansas, makes awards annually according to a point system in its member shows. A first place in an individual show credits the winner with eight points; second, seven points, etc. Golden Duke received another award, a trophy for high poin horse of the year, regardless o breed or class. Beatty was given a membership in the exclusive 100-point club, having won a to tal of 199. Seventeen first - place wins and seven second - place ribbons made up a large portion of these points. Charles may be remembera by some as the ownei of Tony Boy, of the famous black and white spotted pair, Tofiy Boy and Danny Boy, which captured the learts of many horse show audiences several yerars ago. Charles also is the president of the Lyndon Saddle Club which works to promote horse shows, trail rides and other activities. PROTEIN POWER Help your dog "power up" ... wrth Strongheart Dog Food.

Dr. Knapp said, What a man hears he may pos- ibly doubt, what he sees he may possibly doubt, but what he oes himself he cannot possibly oubt." This was the beginning of the federal Extension Service as we mow it today. Extension teaches management principles which enable farmers and their fami- ies to make needed adjustments and to use their resources wise- y. . . in accord with their own values and goals. Extension educational programs deal with all aspects of producing, marketing, processing, uti- izing and consuming agricultural woducts. Agents and specialists lave at their fingertips information on general farm subjects such as crops, soils, dairy, poultry and animal husbandry, forestry, farm machinery and buildings, marketing and soil conservation. This educational effort by the county agent, home demonstration agent and 4-H agent is aimed at a better rural America. Their efforts in conservation alone, in Franklin County, is evident on the farms of the county where wise land use and treatment are being practiced. This practical use of their teachings is indeed a high tribute to their effectiveness. The job of applying sound conservation practices is made easy through the cooperation between the Extension Service and the Soil Conservation Service. We in the SCS wish to acknowledge their efforts and accomplishments. Throughout 1963 we will continue to apply the conservation practices which you, the farmer, as you see the results, cannot possibly doubt their effectiveness. FARMING From Your Full-Service Bank SELECT DAIRY COWS CAREFULLY. You can stop a lot of trouble by knowing the weak and strong points in the breeding of all replacement animals. Most important, of course, is selecting for high productive capacity. But you need to know past history of cows in your herd as far as tendencies toward mastitis, bloat and heat tolerance are concerned too. These will also influence lifetime production. Best guide for selecting replacements is a well kept herd record. SUBSTANDARD BRAKE FLUID can turn your automobile into a death trap. Stricter federal specifications have only recently come into being, but this new law does not go into effect until March 1964. Many brake fluids have low boiling points. When brakes heat up, the fluid is turned into a vapor which can be compressed. Result: No brakes when you need them the most. So check the label of the fluid you are using. Make sure that the number on the can ends with R-l, R-2 or R-3. R-3 has the highest boiling point. A few extra pennies for better quality could save your life. Build Big Gym In Little County NEW CASTLE, Ky. (AP)-Henry County school officials believe in planning ahead so they built a 5,600-seat gymnasium for the county high school. That's big enough to hold half the county population and provide more than nine seats per pupil. Some area residents are unhappy about the mammoth gym but, said county school Supt. John W. Long, "I'd say 95 per cent of the people are tickled to death." Long said the school board decided on the large size in order to be prepared for future enrollment growth and added, "This building will serve the county for the next 75 years." GASOLINE, DIESEL OR LPG? There are many factors to consider when choosing the type fuel system which best fits your needs, but the most important consideration is the annual hours of tractor use. Here's a good rule of thumb: If you expect to use the tractor under 400 hours per year, gasoline is the most economical; from 400 to 1,500 hours, it generally pays to use an LP system; and above 1,500 hours, diesel is probably your best bet. FEED GRAIN PROGRAM SIGN-UP runs from February 1 through March 22. For the average producer, economists figure it will pay to participate in the program at the minimum 20% diversion level. Another added advantage: you can receive up to one-half of the diversion payment at sign-up tune. Check details with your ASCS office.
