The Air Transport an organliatkm of the major airlines, has asted the Federal Communications Commission to place a Mmtt on the height of the towers now that It has lifted the freeze on new television stations.

No clear-cut policy on the location or height of the lowers which ill be required was worked out by c two Industries—aviation and le-broadcnsting—before the lining Ihe freeze." Gates said.

In a statement, urged that le differences be settled without, lengthy legal battles" which would indcr both Industries. The Air Transport Association os recommended that: 1. Congress amend the commu- licalions act to give the FCC peclflc authority to deny applica- iotis when antenna sites or heights arc found to be air hazards. 2. All TV towers be restricted to jity sections already considered air lazarrt areas. 3. Aircraft radio warning devices be Installed at each antenna site. 4. "Booster" stations be used so that high towers would be un necessary. By H. H. CARTER (Aiililant County Agent) B«nn!e Hessie of the New Liberty Community in North Mississippi County makes use of two farm management principles to spread risks and increase labor income on his 40-acre farm. He practices diversification of enterprises, and has added intensive enterprises of high labor but low land requirements. The farm enterprises on Uie Hessie farm last year consisted of 15 acres of cotton, with a winter cover crop of vetch and barley of It; seven ficre.s of corn; 13 acres of permanent pasture five and one half acres of whlcl were established last year; abou one and one half acres of home garden and truclc crops; 17 hern of dairy heifers; 250 turkeys; and 200 laying liens.

A flock of approximately 10 Beltsvllle While breeders-it in alned. The flock '.n Pullorum-test d. and hatching eggs are sold o the Cardinal Hatchery In Mem)his. Better lhan 8,000 hatching eggs .1 30 cents each (over $1800 worth) were sold during the 1951 hatch- ng season, which extended from vlarch 15 to June 22. MR. Hfi'SSIK raises from 150 to 200 turkeys each year. About 100 of these are used for replacements of the breeding flock. Generally no yearling hens are kept over for a second year o: laying. Pullets lay 25 to 30 eggs more during the hatching season than do yearling hens, according to Mr. Hessie. The oilier birds raised, plus Ihe yearlings replaced in the breed Ing flock, are dressed out by Mr and Mrs. Hessie for a local retal trade developed by them in near by Blytheville. Last year, the flessie's sold ap proximalcly 150 dressed turkey, nt BO cents per pound ($6 to { each, and a total of approximate!; SIOOOl. Management of the turkey cr terprise Is about as follows.

They are kept in the brooder ouse anil brooded up lo an age f eight or nine weeks, at wliich line they are placed on range, Of'KN ROOSTS (with no shelter) ire provided near the brooder !OUse. Mr. Hessie says lhal do- nesticaled turkeys, like their wild progenitors, prefer the elements of nature to man-made shelter. lie said he learned this alter constructing two sheet metal sheds with roosts, which the turkeys refused to roost under. The shelters arc now used as laying sheds for the breeding flock. The young poults are fed a 26 per cent protein turkey starling mash to 10 weeks of age. At this time they are changed to a 22 per cent growing mash and grain —- mostly small grains. They are continued on Ibis growing ration until fattening time. Birds to be dressed for Thanksgiving and Christmas are put on a fattening ration (lurkcy finisher mash and grain — moslly corn) about the first week of November. Pullets to be used for replacements in the breeding flock are fed only grain on pasture from this time to January when they are placed on the laying ration The laying flock is fed a tur key breeder mash from January the end of the hatching season MAKES THE MOST OF IT— Bennle Hessie is known among his neighbors as perhaps the outstanding example In Mississippi County of how sound farm management can make o small [arm produce more.

This cuts the! rain and mash requirements b bout one-third, says Mr. Hessie. Last year the turkeys returae bout $HCO above the cost of pur lased feed atid poults. All of th lash and small grains were pur nased. A new enterprise on the Hes.s arm (In effect the past two years the dairy heifer and pasture pr~ mn. Dairy heifers of about breeelin_ age are purchased, bred, and sold alter calving. These heifers have been purchased at. the Memphis Stock Yards (Bangs tested) at a cost ol $80 to J85. They are sold after calving, with their calves, lor $160 to $210. They are generally purchased in curly spring and sold by the first of the year. A few extra baby calves are often purchased during the winter and raised for veals on freshened heifers not sold by this time. Verv little feed is purchased for tha cattle enterprise. The program followed requires no grain and very little roughage, outside of pasture. Only S225 worth of cottonseed hulls and meals were purchased last year. THE PERMANENT pasture consists of white clover, fescue, and or- hard grass. Ninteen head U7 heifers and two lulls) were carrier on the seven one-half acres of* old pasture last •ear (there was only a small amount of grazing on the newly established pasture). Rycgrass Is seeded on the per manent pasture in the faH to pro I'ide supplemental winter grazing for the turkeys and for the dairy animals carried through the winter The winter cover crop of vetch and barley helps supply whiter pasturage prior to being plowed under green manure crop In the spring. Another enterprise which adds to the size of the farm business U a flock of 150 to 200 laying hens (chickens). Fresh eggs are sold in BlythevlHe to individual customers for a premium. Most of the hens, when culled or replaced, are sold dressed to egg customers. About $250 to $400 worth of tomatoes and caubagt« are sold by Mrs. Hessie to Blytheville groceries, restaurants, and drugstores. THE SALE OF 40 goslings hatch- t ed from 16 geese will contribute approximately J160 to the farm income this spring. Mr. Hessie is'sold on his diversified *nd intensive farm program.
