"Alarming reports have com* from certified and registered cottonseed producers in Mississippi, who raise the major portion of seed for planting In tilts area that & shortage may be 'cause by recent heavy rains that have saturated fields and caused cottonseed to begin to sprout In the bolls," Mr. Bilbrey said. The county agent said that he had been advised by cotton seed brokers in this area that producers in Mississippi have become alarmed over (he situation and that a shortage for seed for planting looms. Situation Bad in Missco "And farmers of the county,have a similar situation here." Mr. Bilbrey added. "They cannot save their own seed for planting because of recent heavy rains have thoroughly saturated the seed and the seed cannot be saved." However, he said that he had not received reports of seed sprouting in the bolls as yet. "Heavy rains during the past 1C or 15 days have saturated the seed to an extent that saving is raade almost impossible. Seeds still in the fields have become so thoroughly saturated that if they are stored for as long as 48 hours the seed will begin to heat. kill- Ing germination, resulting in rot." Bean Harvest Delayed ^- In reporting on the crop sitlla- '•$011 In North Mississippi County "^•Mr. Bilbrey said that more than rive Inches of rain has kept farmers out of the fields for approximately 15 days and that only about 35 or 40 per cent of the cotton crop In : North Mississippi County has been | harvested. "And the grade of the 1 . cotton still left In the fields will j naturally be.lowered." he said. | Soybeans have matured very ra- } pidly, he satd. and most all of the beans, including Ogdcns, are ready for combining when weather conditions permit. However, he said the crops are so thoroughly saturated that combining will be prohibited for at least another week. . .

Early hatched puliels in North Mississippi county poultry flocks will soon be ready to go into the laying house and Mrs. Gertrude B. Holiman, home demonstration agent advises that each bird be handled individually and only the top quality birds be housfd. "Many persons ^take the mistaken attitude of 'well, she won't lay long but she will lay a few eggs, so I'll put her in extra," Mrs. Holiman said. "This type of bird is seldom profitable to keep, especially if permitted to run with her more vigorous sisters. It is better practice to cull the hen. If in marketable condition, put her on the market, if not, kill and bury or burn her." Birds should be closely examined for internal parasites at this time. Kill one or two.of the poor quality birds, and cut them open to' examine the intestinal tract thoroughly. This is best done by taking a pair of scissors or a blunt pointed pocket) knife and opening the intestinal tract from the vent in the gizzard. Check for Worms Large round worms, very plainly seen, look very similar to sewing needles. Large, tape worms can also be easily reeli. They are different from the round worms In that on close examination they look like they are made up of many sections. Smalt round worms can be best determined by immersing the intestinal tra_ct in a quart fruit JAr filled with' clear water. The worms V.-I11 spread out from the intestinal tract. There are many good commercial remedies for the removal of round worms from chickens, Mrs. Holiman explained. However, in the case of tape worms, no drug has been found effective. r.iinl Perch Poles Young pullets should be examined thoroughly for external parasites such as lice and mites. These should be treated where found. It is always a good practice to paint the perch poles of the laying house with some type of roost paint for the control of miles. This should be done from two to four ivceks before Ancient Greeks believed Prot us, a sea-fairy, could change his o>- pearance almost at will.
