frown's Bylines More Beef Cattle, Fewer i Dairy Animals In County By DON BROWN Agricultural Agent Reports of livestock numbers for Franklin County have just been released. These figures are for January, |l963, as compared with the 11962 reports. I Dairy cattle population was 510,200, down 400 from a year »ago. This is milk cows and J heifers two years old and older. \ Other cows ^a n d calves in- 'creased from 143,400 in 1962 |to 46,800 in 31963. This | would include 'all beef cattle. i H o g s and j pigs also in\ creased over j last year by 4,|000 head, making the number 23,- f 000 as of January of this year. ! All sheep and lambs had a * slight increase, from 8,300 to 8,- J400. ; All chickens were listed as \ 57,000 on Jan. 1, 1962, and de- Don creased to 47,000 for a drop of 10,000 birds. Many grain sorghum growers n Kansas, Texas and Oklahoma last year had five to 10 per cent of the heads in their fields not filled. Some growers had a 20 per cent loss. This is actually a smut disease, although the powdery smut cannot be easily seen. The main head produces no grain, and the sucker heads which come out at joints are a witches - broom effect of many small rolled leaves and often there is some powdery smut at the base of the broom. This disease is of concern because some of the spores of the fungus usually live over in the soil for several years even though sorghums are excluded from the rotation. The spores can be carried to a field by wind, on untreated seed, custom combines or other means. Research is being done by Dr. E. D. Hansing, K-State plant pathologist to find out if treated seed carried the infection. Future control will be with resistant varieties. Resistance is put into hybrids with feterita sorghum, an old grain sorghum used many years ago. Universities and hybrid companies are now developing resistant hybrids. Kansas State University has a good one out now called KS 652. Thirteen acres of seed were grown in Pawnee County last year and is available to the public. In severe artificial tests KS 652 took the disease only 29 per cent and those without resistance, 70 per cent. It also has some resistance to charcoal rot and lodging and has yielded as high as other varieties. Seed to be tested for germination and mechanical purity should be sent to the State Seed Laboratory, 2524 West Sixth Street, Topeka. The laboratory formerly was at Kansas State University but is now at the Topeka address. Some seed still is sent to K-State. Remailing the samples to Topeka delays testing and, thus, the results of the tests to those who submitted the seed. Have your seed tested as early as possible. It is important that you know the analy sis of the seed before planting it. * * * Black Plastic may be the answer to higher yields, weed control and earlier harvesting of warm season vegetable crops for market gardeners. The one big advantage in using black plastic is the increase in the amount of marketable fruit early in the season when prices are high. Experiments at the Kansas State University horticulture farm have shown that higher marketable yields of cantaloupe, for instance, are very profitable. The plastic absorbs heat during the warm spring days and holds it in the soil at night so that warm season crops can be planted early; transplanting can be done earlier, usually near the last frost-free date; and plastic controls weeds and eliminates hand hoeing while conserving moisture. Market gardeners planning to use black plastic for early marketing of products should lay it out a week or ten days before the last frost-free date to increase soil temperature. Grain Plan Open To Big Farm Owner The 1963 feed grain program is open to owners of several farms whether they sign up only one farm or all the farms they own, according to Gilbert W. Egbert, chairman of the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation state committee. "It is not necessary to sign up all farms in which you have an interest in the feed grain crops in order to qualify for payments and price support on one farm," he said, "so long as feed grain acreage does not exceed the base acreage on non - participating farms." The 1963 feed grain program applies to corn, grain sorghum and barley. Growers of these crops may sign up to take part in the program at their ASCS county offices. The signup extends through March 22. By participating in the pro- gram — diverting at least 90 per cent of the farm's feed grain base acreage from production in to a conserving use — the farmer earns a diversion payment and an extra price support payment, and he also qualifies for the regu- price support loan or purchase agreement on his com, barley or grain sorghum. The price support payment — a new feature of the 1963 pro- Change Now to The GAS That doesn't "Use - up" so fast Ottawa Skelgas John Martin, Mgr. 505 N. Main PH.

(AP)-A 21-year-old typecasting machine operator died Tuesday of injuries suffered when an explosion and fire heavily damaged the Holdenville Daily News building Monday. The victim, Lendell Calhoun, died about 1 p.m. Another employe, David Taylor, 19-year-old pressman and stereo- typer, was hospitalized with serious injuries. Two others, Jim Morris, 31, typecasting machine operator, and Don Reid, 21, composing room employe, were treated and released. The blast which wrecked the one-story brick building, apparently was touched off by inflammable liquid being used to clean the press.
