Quality Problems Of Machine Picked Lint to be Studied MEMPHIS, Term., June 9,—The problem of improving qualities of mechanically harvested cotton to meet mill requirement.'* will get lull consideration at the National Cotton Council's fourth annual Belt- Wide Cotton Mechanization Conference at Greenville, Miss., July 13-15. Claude I/. Welch, Council produc-+ — __ lion and market ing director, said yesterday that more than GOO lenders of government, Industry, and agriculture attending I lie conference will hear discussions on botli the ginning and spinning mill HS- pects of the problem. "Both the ginner and the spinner have long anticipated widespread mechanical harvesting." Mr. Welch said. "Gin machinery maufsclurers, with the aid of federal research laboratories, have developed neiv cleaning equipment which Is already being used by ginners in some sections of the Belt, Grades Improved "It now seems likely that rough harvesting of all kinds will grow more rapidly than previously. This has served as a further stimulus fo better gin cleaning.

"There has been gradual improvement In the cleaning systems at the cotton mills. Over B period of years, mills have adapted themselves to a gradual decrease In grades of cotton. These decreases, in part at least, have been clue to hand snapping and rough picking. "Currently, however," Mr. Welch continued, "there is debate as to whether cleaning should be concentrated in the gins or at the mill level of processing. It is hoped discussions at the mechanical conference vfttl aid in clarifying the entire cleaning situation." May Improve Colors The Cotton Council official said that researchers believe that when mechanical harvesting Is conducted In proper relation to efficient cultural and. defoliation techniques it may easily result In Improved cotton colors one of the factors determining grade. "There also will be some Improvement in the trash content," he said, "but this improvement probably will not produce seed cot- ion equal In grade to the better hand picked cottons. The mechanical picker—not the stripper—lias some selective abilities In rejecting immature or otherwise damaged locks of cotton." The conference at Greenville and Stonevllle, Is sponsored by the council In coujieration with the U S. Department or Agriculture, the land grant colleges of the Cotton Belt, vocational agriculture, the major farm organizations, and the farm equipment industry. Local hosts arc the Delta Council, the Delta Branch Experiment Station, and the Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation. India Expects Capita/ NEW DELHI, India—(.<[>)—Foreign capital investment in India is more likely to come from the United Kingdom than from the United States, according tc Finance Minister John MttUhal, American capital, he told Parliament, was not likely to come In except under "extremely attractive terms." He pointed out that there was a big demand for capital in the U.S. itself and that other countries had a better claim on American investment than India. on June IB, according to John I.,.! Dameron, assistant director In [ charge. j Approximately 1,000 boys ami Bills from Eastern Arkansas art- expected to attend, he stated. They will include 4-11 Club members. Future Farmers of America, and future Homeniafcers of America. On a special (our of the station during the morning, the young visitors will see and hear about ad- ! vanccs Itl orcharding, landscapmg. i production of cotton ami corn]! poultry raking, and kitchen 1m- j proremciil.

Harpo agreed to do the role only If Woolcotfs name was used in the cnst credits as the idiot and if all salary checks were made out to Woolcott. When the plump critic discovered the trick, he threatened to sue ^ Harpo for forgery. "To this day," says Sloane. "Paramount has never beer, able to balance ils books because of the uncashed checks made out to Woolcott " WHEAT (BREAD) POTATOES MEAT ICE CREAM EGGS SUGAR VEGETABLES MILK forty years ago, B rancldad ale more hrcad, meat and poluloes than we do today.

I understand that this rate increase would apply on southern soybeans for export only. If any group of farmers America can hold the export soytwan market in Europe, it is the southern soybean producers. Wtty handicap the southern farmer still more? America needs this export market, and. bad. The local and state Farm Bureau worked hard last week in collecting data nnd nrgumenl to persuade poslponeinenl of this rate increase. H. C. Knappenbergcr from Blytheville and Ed Teaford from Ijiixorn attended this freight rate hearing in St. Louis Wednesday. Wbat's New in Agriculture Excuse me for one week, folks, I am at tiie University, Payetteville, this week along with all the other county and home agents in Arkansas. We are having a week of "in- service training", learning what's new and important in agriculture, and how to do things in a belter way. One of the great values of the land grant college system in Amer-I ^ lea is lhat when science finds something new for agriculture, farmers are quick to find it out through their county and home agent system. More Soybeans I talked to Miles MePeek, crop statistician, in Liltie Rock last Pri- tills full. Breeding stock from Du- rocs, Hampsliires, O.l.C.'s, spotted and black Poland Chinas. Ilc-rk- shlrcs and Yorkshires are expected to be shown and sold. This should be the time and place for you to ijcl swine breeding stock. •1-H Chill Rally Our summer •!-![ Club Rally will be held in Hlythcvillc on Friday. .July 14.

About three years ago he bought a heavily infected Johnson grass farm and immediately turned it into a "goose day.

With favorable weather, Mississippi County is sine to produce more than 3,000,000 bushels.

According to their estimates, each gin has an average of three fires per week, once in a while serious, 'iliev report, also, that at least 50 per cent of these fires arc caused by labor-j and cotton pickers accidentally dropping loose matches in picked cotton. When these matches hit the gin saws they naturally explode ami cause a fire. I understand these ginncrs are to buy great volumes of 'safety" matches, sometimes called "gopher" matches, and will distribute them this fail through every means that they can devise, to all people who smoke. Tt is their hope that ' when anybody smokes this fall they will carry and use "safety" matches. These matches, of course. ' FOR SALE Itargain! Bargain!

Educators from 13 southern slates will participate in the workshop which Is being conducted by Southern Cooperative Study of Elementary Education. The workshop, a continuation of one being held in Daytona Beach Flu,, this week, will publish material on elementary education to be distributed to schools throughout the southern states. Miss Anderson was appointed, by farm." Most of the farm Is now free of Johnson grass except for that which will automatically come up for a few years from seed. This spring a little Johnson grass came up from seed in a new field of alfalfa. He just could not stand the • sight of it so he sent labor out into the alfalfa field to dig up the young Johnson grass before it started root system. H. L. Halsell. Sr., in the Promised Land community, said this week that something should be done about the Johnson grass problem In this county. Wide concern on the part of farm people in this county will cause something to be done about Johnson grass. The expense, of destroying or controlling it is much cheaper than losing our good farm land completely to this grass. KILLS JOHNSON GRASS, BERMUDA DnAoo r and many other grasses and weed i.
