FRIDAY, JUNE 80, 1950 BLTTREVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS On Missco Farms by County Agent Keilh 3. Bilbrey Survival or Revival may not be satisfied with (he cotton crop, but, In my opinion, this year's crop made the largest i recovery in the last 10 days that I have seen in several years. Cotton has taken in a goott color, l!>e new leaf Is healthy, and most of the cotton I have seen Is growing very satisfactorily at the present time. I believe the worst handicap now is that the cotton is 10 days later thun average or than we would lik.i to see It. A number of farmers were reporting and bringing In cotton blooms Monday and Tuesday of tnls week. If my memory is correct, we usually have cotton blooms here somewhere between June 16th and 19th. Most of our' cotton thrlp troubles of two or three weeks ago disappeared with the June 21 and 22 rains. Outside o fdelaying cotton development, perhaps little serious damage was done. There is still a minor thrip damage nrea in the We should have little or no more damage from this insect this year. Now or Never .If you arc going to do anything about controlling Johnson grass this year you had better do it yuick. It would not help, much to control kill Johnson grass next month after seed have matured. Office calls indicate that many farmers would like to try killing Johnson gross in small area with appropriate chemicals. The best material we know of to use as a spray is atlncicle. If you are interested in the subject, come by the office for a bulletin on Johnson grass, control. I thought with cheaper farm labor, geese would disappear from our cotton fields, Such Is not the case. They are being used more this year than ever, primarily to control all grass ill cotton but largely to control and kill Johnson grass. I find that fences are not necessary in the use of geese.

Lost—One Furmer Who is that farmer who told me ir. the spring he was going to plant some sunflowers around his cotton field to serve as a goose fence? I forgot who he was. I would like to know If it is a success. Crop Storage Talk about storing soybeans, where In the world do yoii think we will store all the corn that is in prospect ifor this year? [Vave you ever seen com turn so pretty and black? Show me a black green field of corn and I'will show .you a farmer who used nitrogen on Ills corn in 1950. Naturally, I am very proud of North Mississippi County farmers having learned to use plant foods and the right kinds of fertilizer. I know a few farmers using fertilizer this year for Hie first time, who had said they would never use fertilizer on their farms. I would like to give thanks to the many 4-H Club boys In this county who have conducted nitrogen side dressing demonstrations over tile county. Through these boys and other farm leaders, hundreds of farmers have learned to increase Iheir net income through a sound use of fertilizer. Crop Failure In a year when we anticipate Lhe greatest demand for vetch and other winter legume seeds, the vetch crop in this county has been i failure so far as producing seed in concerned. Fanners are reporting yields of from 12 to 30 pounds of hairy vetch per acre. Recently we have lenrnnd a lesson of value from M. J. Koehler's demonstration at Dell. He planted about 30 acres of a new vetch developed by the Arkansas Experiment Station. The new vetch (Doark) produced 100 pounds of seed to the Here this year where hairy vetch planted by the side of It, produced about 20 pounds per acre. For any farmer who expects to save vetch seed in 1951, we would recommend that he try some of the Doark variety. If the vetch is to be grown for a turn under crop only, we would recommend sticking to the old standby, hairy vetch. A Stitch In Time Have you purchased your grain bins yet or otherwise provided for soybean storage this fall? One dealer in Blytheville reports that he has sold 25 grain bins in the last three weeks. I am not an alarmist but I do think that anyone who intends to buy grain bins should do ™ before September. Demand at thai time of the year might exceed supply. JARVIS (Continued from Page 8) vous with the Jarvis. With his radio gone, it is assumed Comdr. Graham might not. have been Informed the Hovey would be his escort and left without it. A few hours before the Saratoga scout plane saw the Jarvis for the last time, she was spotted by the destroyer Blue. The Jarvis refused aid proffered by the Blue and sailed No successful clue to what happened after that was turned up until this year, when a Navy historian, who had been working on the problem for years, decided to re- examlnc the Jog book of a Jap torpedo squadron based on Rabaul. Battle reports by several Jap pl- iuts foi that date made references to an "Achilles-type" cruiser having been "blown to bits" and "sunk Instantly." The historian established that the Jarvis, In profile, had a striking resemblance to the small New Zealand cruiser Achilles. With that new Information, here Is hov. the unknown final hours of the Jarvis have now been pieced to- No Hope Seen for' Frankie and Mrs. HOLLYWOOD, June 30.

She escaped without further damage, which is probably whv she didn't ask for help from the Blue. Bjt the Jnp destroyer had radioed the Jarvis' position and course to the Rabau torpedo squadron. At noon of the ninth, according to Ihe Jap reports, torpedo planes and 16 "Zero" fighters attacked the Jarvis. Sixteen torpedoes were firet at her while the fighters strafet her decks. The final Jap reporl made-'no mention of survivors. Bui the first' torpedo the Jarvis ha< taken at Guadalcanal had blnstcc away all life mils nnd life boats, An official Navy account nov says: "II the Japanese had not elected to throw nearly till of their available planes at the Jarvis they certainly might have done so at Admiral Turner's ships (off Guadalcanal) still frantically unloading troops and precious supplies for the Marines. "There Is also the possibility that, failing to find the Jarvis, the Japanese airmen might have continued on their course and attacked our few precious carriers, which had withdrawn to refuel. Thus, the Jarvis did not die In vain."
