Mo., May 12. 11—Fifteen consecutive cloudy clays, with rainfall on ten of the days, are causin? some concern over South- last Missouri crops. Farmers are !«'o and a half to four weeks be- blud in their work. Many farmers have been unable o plant corn because of the heavy "ins. Cape Glrardeau County Agent A. D. Arnhart-sais it has been too wet for farmers to no anything except odd Jobs between showers. Scott County Agent Tom Stroup expressed fear that cotton planted n late April, particularly in the flatlamls, might be lost. Waler is standing on top of fields in many areas of the county. R. Q. Brown, Mississippi County 'Bent, reported somewhat better conditions, nut lie said some planters are afraid the wet weather may cause cotton in low lying areas to rot. requiring new plantings/ Wheat prospects were reported poor in both Cape Glrardeau and Scott Counties.

This compares with 537,000,000 in Surrounding the carriers are rings of cuUcrs and destroyers. A 37-ship task force is capable of delivering over 800,000 rounds, or 155 tons of anti-aircraft fire a minute, at ranges varying from 3000 to 42,003 ':et, • . The carrier task force has its radar screen, extending its warning defense well beyond cruiser and destroyer fire. Also, each carrier has the striking power of its 100 fight- ikes with a range of 7CO miles. «vne 110 U. S. aircraft carriers of all types in the last war, 16 were sunk—none of them in the big Esses class. All of those lost were hit by dive bombers and "kamikaze"— the original guided missile. Calls Carrier "Mobile Airfield" Main attribute of the carrier !s that it is a mobile airfield, capable of moving 2000 miles within 48 hours. Iii any defense of Europe, Admiral stump believes carrier forces would be able to move into the Mediterranean and the Arctic. While operation In close quarters Involves obvious risks, one of the frequently overlooked carrier ad r vantages is that as a target, it sucks in enemy planes and destroys them. In the last war, the Navy claims that the record of enemy planes shot down by carrier aircraft was 18 to one U. S. plane lost. The ratio for land-based planes was seven enemy planes shot down for one allied plane lost. For operations in Asian waters, Admiral stump believes that carrier task forces would be able to ,, . Despite the small crop reserves of 450,000.000 bushels from past big ,. g crops assure the country of plenty / n / ma / *"" mm of grain to meet its domestic and export needs. However, consumers may be affected by higher prices. The decline of this year's prospects already has been reflected in strengthening of prices, which now average slightly above the government price support level. Wheat is not the only crop affected. The department said adverse weather conditions during April further retarded farm work and crop growth, particularly in the northern two-thirds of the country. Frost in April, reaching nearly to move into the Arabian Sea, the Persian Gulf, Bay of Bengal, China Sea and Bering Sea. In the last war, carrier task forces remained at sea' for six months at a time, being supplied by sea. In demonstrations at sea off the Virginia Capes, members of the Civilian Orientation Course saw helicopters,' _ blimps, drone planes, bombers and jet fighters catapulted, taken off and landed on the carrier Philippine Sea. Then by moonlight they saw night attack planes take off and land on the carrier deck. Biggest development looked forward (o by the carrier forces is delivery of the new Douglas prop-Jet planes to the Navy. They are now ll\ production. Use of these new planes will require strengthening of the carrier decks, but they will greatly increase carrier range. IT'S HIRE!

HARVEY MORRIS, Clerk By Ruth Magee, I3.C. 4-28 5-5il2;19 by County Agent Keith J. BHbrry A Ilatl Dream? I can't pet over the large crowd that Allan Kline drew at Osccola last week. I finally rode to Osccola with Mr. Lynch in a new car that needed a few extra miles on it. He drove at a speed necessary for new cars and when we arrived there was no place to park within blocks of tlie school. Then, by the time we walked to the high school'therc was no place lo park ours either. I think we got the last two seals in the gymnasium. Mr. Kline sure ruptured my dream boat. He says there is no such thing as a guaranteed security or "security by law." I had Jiopes that they would soon pass a law that would put all fat county agents on a pension. I thought maybe they would see that it is dangerous for me to work, as Im; as I am, and with al! the heart trouble around. And besides, I am a big consumer. Some folks say tliat we need to eat, more so we would not have' surpluses to bother with. Well, anyway, it is confusing. Mr. Kline says that the standard of living will go up In America just as fast as we increase our production per man and that we can earn security by working nnd production—not by law. I notice the papers n»oting President Truman as saying. "What this country needs is the Drannan Plan." Well, r am thankful that the people still have some authority in deciding what kind of farm program this country needs. I still have faith hi the mass thinking of the American people. It will always be belter than liic thinking of a few sclf- npjxiintcd leaders or dictators like some countries have. Missed the Hnaf Last week while I was predicting to yon through this column that you might have trouble with cutworms in the garden, literally thousands of them were hatching out in alfalfa, vetch and our clover in Mississippi County. Armyworms, too. were appearing in great numbers in small grain crops. These worms caused heavy losses In tills county last year, so let this be a warning to you If you have any of the above mentioned crops on your farm. Two pounds of actual toxa- phene per acre should control these worms. If you have small Infested plots or want to protect a few rows of row crop alongside alfalfa or vetch: use a Paris green-bran bait — 4 pounds of Paris green, 100 pounds bran, and enough water, all thoroughly mixed to make a moist crumbly mass. 100 pounds of this (dry weight) bait will effectively FOR SALE State Certified DPL No. Ib Blue Tag Cottonseed 80% Germination OGDEN SOYBEANS 8D% Germination EARL MAGERS Dell.

These men would appreciate a word of encouragement from you, He Careful Many farmers arc ouyuig anhydrous ammonia storage tanks and factor appilcating equipment. I .nought Corbctl Stockton of Cole Ridge was smart when he asked me f he could use iiis thousanct-cnlloii nhydrous ammonia tank to store iropanc in this winter and use for icating in his home. 1 Inquired of other people who might know If delegation will visit the station and sre their livestock nnd pasture program, ilalanrrd Farming r like Ihe way M. K and Earl Brownlce of uell are funning. I visited (hem Tuesday and I found a lot of Duroc hogs belly deep in white clover. You know Ihe ptgs looked good. They could not look otherwise on a full feed and white clover pas- lure. In an adjoining pasture the while face steers looked just as contented. Also, on the farm I found 40 acres of hairy vetch being saved for seed and to come nearer Insuring a good seed production they had paid some beekeeper to place several hives of bees'in the vetch field. Sucli Weather One week I talk about Irrigation and Ihe nest week about drainage. I wonder it I am causing these dry spells followed by floods? I used to think most farmers should keep a team of mules to run water furrows with, if for no oilier reason. Maybe we can dn away with these "hay burners" now. I saw a his was feasible and they said. 'No. no!— The person making such use of a tank Is risking grave danger with carbon monoxide poison- Ing nnd its use Is tiot to be recom- iicndcd." The State Boiler Inspector said, "Anhydrous storage tanks •ati be used to store propane only iVbere the propane is to be used entirely for tractor operations/' Looks like Mr. Stockton was smart lo find out before he endangered the lives of his family this winter.
