Learning to conserve, using homemade items, do-it-yourself, know where your money goes and mor;i!e lifters are the themes of Ihe club lessons, Mrs. Holiman said. Under the heading of conserva- ;ion, Mrs. Holiman lists lessons on .ipholstering, homemade furniture, coiievrting coal oil lamps into elec- ,ric ones and food preservation by freezing as some of the ways that women carry out their program. Mrs. Holiman says the clubbers feel that with home furnishings and food as high as they are, the conservation part of the program not only encourages people to save money, but saves material and food for the armed forces as well. Do-it-yourself lessons include do- Missouri Cattle Herds Hit by Weed Poison ing, own dry cleaning, making corsages, rusr making and homemade items.

I thank everyone In the county for the fine cooperation, willingness to work together for common good, for serving well as leaders, and lor learning quickly new scientific facts which make farming more profitable and pleasant. It has been pleasant working here. Thank you for your support, A Smart Stunt II was really a fine tiling for your Mississippi County Farm Bureau to sponsor the lour of Mississippi County for the delegates to the National County Agents' Association Convention in Memphis. I was (1 tnpletely dumbfounded , at the interest shown. Out of the 815 that had registered by midnight Saturday night, 135 of the men came to Mississippi County on this tour Actually, we did not expect more than half that many. It was njosl interesting to talk with agents Iron the north, east and from the fai west. They were seeing and study' ing things so different from theii own counties. The agents from the dairy sec tions were really curious about the oleomargarine factories. Hundreds of them never saw cotton before a.nd they were anxious to have need it, Mrs. Holiman believes. She recommends using the excess for buying defense bonds. The home demonstration clubs have given lessons to their members on budgeting, Mr?. Holiman said. Members \vere shown how to find out where their money goes. She said that when they found that out. they would be able to cut down unnecessary spending, do wiser spend- ing.and know how to plan to get the things most wanted. of the damage.

The average dale for killing frost this county lor the past 55 years ias been November 1. This means tiiat the many thou- and acres o! cotton that came up ifter June 6 will make some cotton and maybe most of it will show little profit. I Will Be There Some farmers in this comity think [ make all the "free meals/' Well 1 do like to cat pretty regularly. Anyway, I hope to see you next Tuesday night at the Annual Fnrii' Bureau Meeting. Dr, Sayre, the speaker, is a smart cotton man Also, many of you will want to hear and speak to "Took" Oath- ings.

E. Smith, Jr., Missouri University floriculturist. Any mulch or similar protective covering for the winter should not be put on when the bulbs are planted, however, but only alter the surface soil Is frozen. Earlier placing of straw or leaves may attract mice to nest there and laUr feed on the newly planted bulbs. The bed where the bulbs are to be planted must be well drained. It should b« spaded to a depth of 10 inches and mixed with well rotted manure or leaf mold and a complete fertilizer rather ley? in nitrogen, such as a 2-12-6 or 4-24-12 formula. Depth of planting should be ied to suit Ihe type of soil and the size or kind of bulb. Crocus and snowdrop should be 2 to 3 Inches i below the surface of the soil, scilla' ij. grape-hyacynth 3 to 4 Inches, tulip 4 to 5 in heavy soil and 6 to 7 ! inches deep in light soil. Hyacinth] and narcissus require the same depth of planting as tulips. Madonna lilies should be placed 1 inches below the soil surface, and regal! ILlicA 8 to 9 Inches. It is a mistake to plant bulbs too close together in the row. Crocus! and snowdrop should be 2 Inches \ apart, scilla and grape hyacinth 3 [ inches, tulips 5 inches, hyacinth 7 : niches, narckcus 9 inches and larger lilies 10 inches.
