Use Bran Bait For Fall Worms Arkansas Pastures May Suffer Damage; Danger To Soybeans PrtVl.' army worms have been found in Garland and Bradley counties and Indications arc that tlie.

The fall army worm, winch is a grass-feeder, is a pest- of meadows and'pastures ar.d r:ay c.lso diuingc soybeans, HID cor ty agent siiys. •The fall army woi'jn, he says, should . not be contused -with' the cotton leaf .liyorm,'which ic«ls only upon cotton. The fall army worm eats cotton only when starved fo it. The standard control measure for fall army .worms is bran Unit, such as is used for grasshoppers and cutworms, the cously ugenl snlil. Dusting ivllh calcium nrsenate is not effective, and tills poison cannot lie used on soybeans because it will cause burnlne. An alternate control measure to combat the fall nviny worm Ls a brush drag, the county agent said, Tills drag should be fine and con- lain many twigs. Dragging will give a good kill In pastures and may tilso ue used In meadows if the hay is not loo tall, tlic county agent explained, , A late report came into the ngcnt's office today that the Fall army worms were destroying some soybeans near nlnckwttter In Mississippi county, however, 'Mr. l!il- brey said specimens -were not available for examination and therefore could not be verified.

In addition to providing feed for increased numbers of livestock, legumes and grasses havo a direct leaving upon fulurd yields of other crops. Land under wartime strain of peak production must have legumes and grasses to maintain nnd restore fertility, Rrtd ; must have cover lo comhat erosion. Desired hay and pasture acreage ; cannot bo maintained, however, unless this year's seed harvest ia i larger than in either of the past two years. Since seed production varies greatly becauso of weather, nnd the acreage available for seed harvest is smaller than in cither of the past two years, it is urgent that more than tho usual number of acres be harvested for Eeod. By 1,KK IIANNIFY llnitnl Tress Farm Kdilnr Only a small portion ol this year's record wheat crop has been I niarkclcii, but tho crop lias a big I affect on farm Income. Receipts from meat animals, dairy products, ' poultry and eggs declined but a large Haiti sconed in Income on food usls prevented this Irom brlmjlnjf down (olal farm Income. On the contrary, according to the USDA. latest Indications nre lhal Income is about four percent higher than It was at this time' ; last .vear, mostly because «t the heavy flow of wheat to market. There was a sharp, drop In receipts from oil-bearing crops, such us -peanuts, soybeans and flax-seed, Ijot income from vegetables, fruits and mils rose sharply. Senator Thomas ot Oklahoma Is nt work on a new system of figuring parity prices for agricultural products. As you know, parity now works lo ylve farmers n return which makes It possible, theoretically, lo Jive on about the same -scale as (hey maintained between 1909 and 1914. During those years it was considered that farmers had an cven-slcphcii share in the national Income, and were able to live about as well ns their city neighbors. Tlie parity principle was set up by Congress during the depression years to restore that sort of economic balance, which got all out of whack shortly after the lust war. Thomas proposes to change the base period fo rparity calculations from th CI814 period to the years between 1919 nnd 1929. He will introduce legislation to effect this directly after the war ends in Europe. Thomas says his plan would result in n hike In the loan value of farm products, followed by a boost in fnnn income.

Swaiison achieves these apparent horticultural miracles by grafting on to his trees branches he obtains from parent trees at tlie state breeding farm, which k constantly experimenting with new varieties. In two years after the graft, a branch is cosily bearing a new fruit next to a branch with apples or plums of a different variety.
