FA<M TEN rait) AY, JUNE iH.YTHEVIU,K (ARK.) COIJRrER NEW! Control of Weeds To be Stressed Work with Chemicals Will be Studied at Stoneville Conference MEMPHIS. June 2 — Chemical weed control, which one day may eliminate us many as six to eleven cultivations a year, will receive special emphasis at the National Cotton Council's fourth annual Bcltwide Cotton -Mechanization Conference at Sloneville, Miss., July 13-14. Harold A. Young, council president snd conference chairman, said this week. The more than 600 representatives of government, industry and agriculture expected to attend the conference will consider research done on chemical weed control during pre-plalltlng, pre-emergencc, and post-emergence stages of Hie crop. "Much progress has been made In the development of suitable chemicals to control weeds in cotton fields." Mr. Young .said. "At the Delta Branch Experiment Station at Stoneville tests have been run on more than 200 different petroleum fractions and 30 other types of lierbicidai agents. Siiccejful control attained in these experiments has resulted in definite recommendations for use of chem- icah during the post-emergence period." More Research Needed The Cotton council leader said ; that /urilicr research ts e-ssentlal before any recommendations can be made on use of chemicals to control weeds prior to the time the i _ cotton plant emerges iro:n the soil. DQlfV "Pre-emergence application of chemicals would be an ideal answer to weed control but as yet It is in On Missco Farms Ctiunty Agenl Keith 3.

Mr Chandler has just finished two years as a good iissistunt agent la North Mississippi County. He was determined to he a county a- scnt. This I know, because he turned down several other interesting opportunities in other fields. He got a great pleasure on" of helping farm people to help tiicrn selves.

News Scoop The June issue of the Farm and Ranch .squalls about the New Yor'K World Telegram stealing some of their big news. The World Telegram brought information out in the open that certain InfluviUial people are talking about Allan Kline, president of tjie American I'arm Bureau, being presidential ! timber. The Southern Agriculturist claims they had heard the comment from "some good Democrats and good Republicans, too", and when they talked to Mr. Kline about it he asked that the matter not be discussed in print and that ns president of the American Farm Bureau he could not be interested ill running lor olfice. He said that holding the Farm Bureau offic-n placed him under moral ablations to stay out of politics. v Well, anyway, it is a compliment to Mr. Kline but if lie is that good, maybe he would be worth more' to the farm people and to America to continue as president of the Farm Bureau, consumers should know It. If a sheep grower gave away the •.vool fo,- a $50. suit, it will still cost $34.44. if he gave the tobacco away in a pack of cigarettes, the pack would still cost 17 : ;i cents. If the wheat farmer gave his wheat away, a loaf of bread would still cost 14.7 cents. The labor and marketing cost of farm products represents the 'ion's share of the consumer's dollar In the market place. This is the reason' farmers are not getting rich as some people think. Farm Visils I h;)d a very pleasant risit with Mr. and Mrs. Robert childrcss, three miles East of Leachvil'.e. last Monday. [ was cnroute to their place during that awful dust storm Monday afternoon. As long as I was in and around ;ome of George (lay's locust trees the dust was not too bad but when I got a\s*ay from one of the.-e shclterbclts, I almost choked I saw Mrs. Childless' nice strawberry jMiich so i asked them if l might buy some. They said. "No they are all sold, but you might t some with us before you leave " After l had eaten all the straw- aiul thick cream f cou!d iflki, i felt like my pet toad frog looked after I rolled it in a indful of buckshot. I apologized fo r eating so much, especiajly since I had not been able to help Mr Childress with his problem. Mrs] Childrcss came to my rescue and said. "Oh. yon have helped us I have been able to grow good cucumbers evey year since you told me to dust them with rotenone " Then they showed me their 20- foot home freczm- almost filled with strawberries, meat, vegetables and tile like.

COME IN TODAY FOR FULL DETAILS Sou^h Highway 61 Blyfheville Cotton Inserts Word from Dr. Lincoln this morning says that the emergence or boll weevil in Louisiana and Sontli Arkansas appears later than average. H is really too early to tell what • damage Arkansas may suffer from • boll weevil. Possible dry weather July and August may again prevent boll weevil from reaching North Mississippi County. I continue to hear reports that someone locally has seen a boll weevil this Spring. I challenge anybody to show me. a cotton boll weevil taken In North Mississippi County. Dr. Lincoln also reported that small numbers of cotton leaf worms have appeared In Cameron County in the lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas. So far as I know, this is I the earliest date that leafworm-s j have appeared In Texas. These I things progress slowly from Texas ; to the North and East and it is I possible that we might have leaf- worm damage this fall, if they should reach this area by September they could do some real damage because we will have a lot of late cotton for them,to work on. Fortunately, they nre easily control- Eed by calcium nrsenate dusting. Consumer's Iloltor The farmer gets a mighty small amount of the consumer's dollar.
