Mississippi County gardeners to' Include insect control measures. There are three types 'of Insecticides a gardener will nee<l Tor controlling: garden insects, she pointed out. The first is either lead or cii! L cluin ill-senate for the chewing type Insects, such as Twtato bcet- -les. Next, she listed either cryolite or barium fluoslllcate for blister beetle's uncl other chewing Insect's that cannot, be conlrollecl *llh lead or calcium arsenate. On beans, I Miss coleiiian explained that ery- I elite or barium lluosllicale Is used for all chewing Insects. v The t-lilrd type . ithe ' suggested Is a contact Insecticide to control np- hids and other sucking Insects.- Nicotine sulfate and rote'none are rec- , ornmended, she said, but the.-sup| ply of both of these is short. When they cannot be obtained, good results can be obtained from ni-spray lie by dissolving one pound of own laundry soap In six gallons water. While these three insecticides are e necessary ones, Miss Ooleman ggcstcd that Paris green might added to the list. Tills in'gred- it is unsurpassed as the toxic sub- •mee h] brain baits used to. con^ o! cutworms and grasshoppers. She pointed out that a suitable rnyer or duster is essential for oper application of the Irisectl- des. nnd added that a plunger- pe cluster selling .for less than 2 givis excellent results in a gaf- MASKED MARVEL ON FARM Suitable for Sawmills, Unloader Fans, Irriga- <fio~n Pump?, etc. NO PRIORITY REQUIRED ELLIS IMPLEMENT CO.

A committee consisting .'of the jresldcnts of the clubs was asked i) write resolutions of respect to he BlacKwell and Little families. F. A. Rogers are three farmers In North Mississippi County who have found 'bur clover to be very satisfactory winter legumes. Each has grown th? soil Imprdvcr for three or more years. In addition to equalling vetch in .restoring nitrogen to the soil it, can be tnrne.^ under a lew days earlier in the spring and has the unusual ability to make volunteer crops for two to four years from one seeding. On March 19 Pete Minyard turn- he original seeding in the fall of 10-13. Mr. Minyard reported that he harvested !'•<• bales of cotton per acre from this land in 1945. Fred Fleetnan. who farms at Maila. has experimented with bur clover for several years. He likes the results so well that he has contracted for 1200 bushels of bur clover seed for fall delivery. On one 17-ncrc field that has been ed under n full elnnrt of bur clover near the Blytheville Gin which crngecl 12 inches In hcig Bilbrey. locnl county Agent, examined the clover and snlcl it would odd nitrogen to the soil eciiml to 260 pounds of nitrate of soda. This was 15 to 20 days earlier thnn the average winter legume turned under. This was the third year 'of in bur clover for three years lie harvested two bales per acre of ." j D&PL 14 from the 1945 crop. Tins compares to about a. -K bale average for that area in 1945. '. A. Rogers has about 35 pet- cent or the Clear Lake Farms in winter legumes. Som e of it is in bur clover which was seeded originally four years ago. Potash Added To Sandy SoiJ Ups Production For several years now It has been genarally recognized that mueh of the sandy soil In Northwest Mississippi County is deficient in potash, as well as nitrogen. Tills is particularly true where thest soils hiive grown considerable .soybeans, alfalfa, other legumes, anc pasture. In recent .years some soils eas of Big Lake have Indicated a polr ash shortage, too. Heavy cropping n legumes of one kind or another may draw or require more potash than some of our soils can furnish, over a long period of years. Potash shortage often shows up in cotton In the form of . ryst and immature or poorly opened bolts. Vance Dixon of Blylheville. Vi mile west of the Home Gin Company, larms some white n'aturert land which had a'tendency to produce cotton with rust Injury. In 1945. he had 100 pounds of muriate of potash per acre applied on a part of his cotton and produced an additional 94 pounds ol lint cotton per acre over the unfertilized plot. Also, the tolls opened well and were easily picked. Tile cotton, both fertilized and unfertilized, was planted on land that was in soybeans two years and in alfalfa for four years previous to the beans. On any land where true rust appears in cottori the Extension Service recommends the use of winter legumes to build up organic mattei and.jto apply potash fertilizers der cotter as a corrective measure Mr. Tjixon is a member of the North Mississippi County Sol Testing and Management, Com mltte e which is working with th local Extension agents on a bette soils management program for Mis sissippi 'County. • Read Courier News Want Ads.

Wliiic early October-' is "the' ; best time for treatment, most of the borers call be killed with the April treatment. , Next to the San Jose scale, the peach tree borer Is the most 1 serious insect enemy of peach trees. It usually works at or somewhat below the surface of the soil, and the injury Is recognized by gum thrown out at the base of the tree. An effective method of killing the borers, now being used in nil peach growing areas, ' Is to fumigate ' Infested trees with' pnrndl- chlorobenzene (usually called PDB).
