We have lost both Negro and white clubs who did not care to sign such a letter. '"• •• -V *• •*••• We. have had Nggro extension workers on our staff for Pver 35 year's. We. have rendered unusual and special help to Negro groups, tp help ftem in ai)y \vay we could. We g§t nQ m?nt for .this and are even criticized sometimes.. ' a Negro ehu.reh leader says, "Mr. Bilbrey, we need help to la.nds.C8pe ou.r ctiurcb," we can't help unless they prove that other races 'are. welcpme, in their group. Let's say five .Negro -farmers need a cpmbjne. for Soybean harvest. They can't afford one' by themselves, gut they can form a cppperative group and buy one, i can't help these pep, pie unless they sign a state? ment that ^crimination is not intended or practiced, and that White farmed are welcome jn the cooperative. This is to show you that the new rujes sometimes hurt; Neas well as white organizations. Now, I want to say agajn, as I have in other years, T- no Mississippi County Negro ever lived that was not welcome in the County Extension Office. AH who have, com* our way fqr advice or help know that this is .rue. It was true before civil rights, It :js. still true, Ma loch Says By D. V. MtJoefc County AstMt Don't forget the Soybean Meeting at : the courthouse in Osceola, January 19 at 10 a.m. The afternoon program .will begin at 1:30 and be over about 3:30 p.m. Remember that one idea gained, that will or will not work may be worth many dollars to you. Most farmers have sixty per cent of their land seeded to soybeans each year. Since returns from several tliQUgand acres of soybeans do not pay post of production, growers' should study every available procedure for improving production on the low the duping sores as wel) as high producing acreage, •* * *"' .

Some farmers even wait until near the first of April Frequently one can put out nitrogen on the frozen ground in January or early February.

The soil in each field should be tested to determine the nutriente needed. • If you have tested previously, remember you should test your field! every three years. Here are some things to remember whije taking soil samples,: : Before taking soil samples, draw a sketch showing the different fields and number each field., then sample each field separately as follows. each field to obtain a tative sample, If field is ever W aores, probes should be made at least one plaee per Sore cov« ering the entire field! Place individual- cores into ; a bucket, mixing the sojl 'thoroughly, then remove about one pound or one pint for laboratory use bel with the field number. Repeat on the rest of your fields. Bring the samples to the County Extension Agent's Office and be prepared to give information concerning number of acres jn field, soil texture, internal drainage, cropping history for three years (yields and fertilizer used on it), and plans for future use. - • You can pick up probes, leaflets On soil testing, and any help we can give at the County Extension Agent's Office. Hyftevffle TArk.) Courier Kewt — Milay, January If, NM f Fiji 1 Gutting Farming Costs Some folki think cutting costs In todiy'i firming means to spend leva and work harder. • For some It may be the answer to maintaining income. But (or others, probably the majority, it's not a useful answer. When you have big unchangeable costs, spending less may bring your income down further than Hie amount you save through lower expenditures. Following suggestions are possibilities for increasing or maintaining income when cosls are rising and prices are Haling: Lay out less cash. This means using present machinery and equipment longer than you lied expected; buying used rather than new machinery and equipment; working longer h o u r s rather than hiring extra labor; exchanging labor with neighbors and putting off Investments in fixed resources, such as buildings and others. Not all of these will increase efficiency of the farm business, bill they will help reduce actual expenditures. Try to produce or market at less cost per unit. There are many opportunities to do this, including increasing the size of the farm, which may be difficult in present circumstances. A few of the opportunities are improving efficiency of machines to do more work at no more expense; using a higher producing variety that costs no more as seed; using fertilizers that produce higher yields at lower unit costs, and adjusting enterprises for better use of land,' labor and capital. Virtually all new practice | recommendations coming from I the agricultural colleges and |U. S, Department of agriculture have been proved efficient, that is, they will allow some, most or all farmers to produce items for market at less cost per unit. Produce items for market that will bring a better price. Examples here include producing high quality products at the same cost as lower quality products, such as cotton, clean grain, etc. * * * Obviously you must continue to spend considerably to main* t«in or increase income. There are many alternatives for spend ing — the premium will be on where you spend and the income it returns. This means good decisions, based on knowledge of costs, returns you can expect and recognizing the risks Involved. ,, Then you have reached jj.. right decision when you are sat- isfiecl that you see no other.;: place to spend or invest (host:? dollars to got a greater return:; or satisfaction. Once you havej; settled on the decision, seeVwl! it that you get the most frpnii every dollar. -- / j 1 To plan ahead for off-seasojij; buying at bargain prices, sM^jj for the best deals and getSinij every purchase your best pos-M sible eomgination of quality and;: quantity. , • •!
