Farm Agents In Hill Sections Cb-operate In Sending Workers To Harvest Cotton, Rice Crops Agricultural agents in hill .sections of Arkansas arc cooperating in the drive to send farm families to cotton picking sections for the gathering of this crop. HeM uouner newi »&nt tat Simple Range Shelter 'TMIIS is the year to make every •*- piece of equipment that we now have on the farm keep going, every acre and cow and hen produce its best, every day and every lick count. Our fighting men need plenty of food, and \vc must produce it. One. soldier, for instance, needs enough meat to CQual 500 pounds of broilers each year. That means that more broilers are going to have to come off the farm than ever before. Now that tlie broiler raising eeasojris getting- into.full swing, many farmers are faced with Hie problem*9! providing- range shelter lor flocks; • ^Illustrated below is a cheap range .shelter- for C-weck-ohl broilers, which helps the flock pet green'; feed and fives'them elbow room. : Th'e shelter is simply constructed and .requires a minimum of labor and'critical materials. It is raailt of asbestos cement board applied on a V-shaped frame, with wire stretched across the open ends. A small door covered with wire is used on the front. Since asbestos board is rodent-proof and weatherproof, the shelter will last a long time. „ with the campaign to send cotton pickers to this section, those who prefer to harvest rice are asked to go : to the rice-gathering section, KO that all farm hands can •' be ntiliy.ecl to harvest both crops. Agents in hill counties are con- « •. ( lading thetr farm families, sending • out questionnaires and personally Trv/ '! i-ffii-i^i' i visiting these families so as to ac- ' / L - 1 ' ' '''Q quaint them with the plan for using " such workers here. What U> expect In the way of X I i' i i prices for labor and housing condi- (Jf\ UDnOlStGrV tions have been reported to agents " . ' In hill counties by agents of the 20 cotton-producing and 10 rice-producing counties so that Incoming labor will have a true picture of conditions. Because rice harvesting begins at least 30 days after cotton picking, emphasis at this time is on obtaining cotton pickers immediately so that the first cotton can be picked as it matures. A number of families already have arrived but more are needed if Mississippi County's most valuable crop is lo be harvested, agricultural leaders have' announced. Spots and status on thick materials like mattresses, upholstery, pl|. lows, heavy rugs and also on wall paper arc often more successfully removed by drawing out than sponging out, advises Margaret Furry, textile chemist of the I), s. Department ol Agriculture. If possible start removing the spot promptly while It is still fresh nnd moist and use some dry absorbing material. Common household materials like corn starch, white cornmeal, talcum powder or salt can all be used, to absorb a moist stain, Magnesia powder and Fuller's chrlh,- which can foe purchased at drug stores, are also good materinlsxto have on hand for this purpose. Shake the "absorbing powder gently on the wet-spot, then brush oft with a soft brush. Repeat until surface moisture has been absorbed: Finally cover the spot with the powder and leave for several hours before brushing oil. Pieces of clean white blotting paper may also be used to draw out spots. If the spot has dried, make a paste ol cold water and one of these absorbents and spread over the spot! When dry brush olT and repeat until the stain disappears. If the spot contains grcnse, make the paste of the absorbent and some grease solvent like carbon tctrachloride instead of water. Grease spots on wall paper can often be removed by this'' 01 ' farm program for himself and latter method.

Farm Security'doesn't knowVair the answers to the problem of tenure, but we have learned'something about it in dealing with this problem over a period of years.-We encourage landlords and tenants,'to enter into long-term leases of three five, or ten years. This makes it possible for the tenant to carry out u better farm program. This year seven FSA families in Mississippi County had five-year" leases, ten families had three-year leases, and two families had two-year leases. We are hoping more families will be able to obtain long-term leases for next year. In this way, the farm family will enjoy a sense of security which will help him carry on a bet- THE CORn THE f HRI11ER f LIKES • 'Delta Implements, Inc., Bfytheville Bowden Bros., Joiner J.

Makes Good Place For Storing Of Onions Onions arc so plentiful this year that many households will be s'tor- Ing them for Winter. The U S Department of Agriculture reminds housewives that onions differ in their storage requirements from other root crops. They keep well only In n place that Is cool and dry, yet not as cold as- freezing temperature. Storage pits outdoors or' cellar storage rooms are too clamp and heated basements too wahn. An attic or unused, room generally makes good winter quarters j or on _ ions.
