PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, AUGUST 27. 1954 RE VIEW--FORECAST $64 Question: Will Benson Put Cheap Butter on Market? By OVID A. MARTIN WASHINGTON (AP) — A big question posed by the new farm bill is: Will Secretary of Agriculture Benson offer government-owned surplus butter to consumers at cut rate prices? The measure gives Benson authority to use "any method'' he determines necessary to dispose of extra supplies of butter, cheese and dried milk acquired under a dairy price support program. Under this broad authority, the measure authorized the de- 4» which runs until March 31, 1956, sees fit, give them away or even destroy them. At present, the department .holds about 460 million pounds of surplus butter, 425 million pounds of cheese and 275 million pounds of dry milk. Want to Sell There have been reports that some farm officials want Benson to offer the butter to consumers at 41 cents a pound, or about 25 cents less than current retail prices. The new legislation gives Benson authority to put up to 200 million pounds of butter, 150 million pounds of cheese and 300 million pounds of dry milk in a" "set aside" pool for non commercial uses, including foreign aid programs, relief, barter deals, a national emergency stockpile and the school lunch program. Should Benson place these maximum amounts in this pool he would have a relatively small quantity of butter left to dispose of. Doubts Most farm leaders doubt Benson will offer dairy products at reduced prices because of the possibility such a program, while intended only as a temporary measure, might develop pressures for indefinite continuance. The secretary has said he is against government subsidizing of consumer food bills, except for the needy. The new bill makes no changes In the present support rate for milk and dairy products. Neither does it change the present method of support, which is government purchase or offer of loans on surplus supplies. Help to Schools In a move to boost consumption of fluid milk among youngsters, Operate Farm? Then Use Care Farmer Runs Risk Of Law Suits Now A farmer in Norm Mississipp County runs a greater risk now than ever before of becoming involved in a lawsuit because of injury or death to another person, according to County Agent Keith Bilbrey. The rapid increase in power machinery on farms has been accompanied by an increase in accidents. And, the increase in cars trucks coupled with the more frequent need to go into town on business, increases a farmer's chances of becoming a party to a traffic accident. Because of their greater net worth, farmers stand to lose more today if they are called into court. A court judgment could mean the loss of life-time savings. Liability insurance, therefore, is more necessary to a farmer than ever before. In general, partment to use up to 50 million dollars a year of its price support funds for the next two school years to increase consumption by school cljeidren. This money will be apportioned among schools participating in the school lunch program. It may permit the schools to offer milk a cent a quart cheaper. The measure also authorizes the department to use up .to 15 million dollars a year from price support funds to supplement other funds for increased indemnity payments on dairy cows slaughtered because they are affected with the cattle disease brucellosis. The bill also directs Benson to make a study of various methods of possible milk production control as well as methods of supporting dairy prices', and to report his findings to Congress by next Jan. 3. Another provision directed the department to make surplus dairy products available free of charge, except for packaging costs, to the armed services and. the Veterans Administration to step up their consumption above present levels. Something to Think About By GERTRUDE 8. HOIJMAN County Home Demonstration Agent It is Fair almost fair time again. Perhaps we can get a little cooler just thinking about it because you know we always have some cool weather at that time. So perk up and plan what you are going to put in the fair this year. We have fair books at our office. Come by and pick up one. This goes for 4-H'ers, too. To date Greene County has promised to put in two booths. Lost Irrigation Day ComesupAug.31 Missouri Event Scheduled for Near Gideon Irrigation and irainage from about any angle will be covered at the field day Tuesday, August 31, on a Gideon-Anderson County farm located 4 miles South and PA miles East of Gideon. Education exhibits -containing the actual live plants from plots of the Campbell Experiment Station in addition to pictures and literature on irrigation can be seen. Plots on the farm will be labeled showing amounts of water used on cotton, soybeans and pasture. Contrasting Dlots with no water will be the legal liability risks a farmer runs fall into three groups: personal liability, liability to employees, and motor vehicle liability. Mr. Bilbrey suggests that detailed information about legal and financial responsibilities may be obtained from insurance agents, lawyers, bankers, or from representatives of farm organizations. adjoining. Short informative talks will be fitted into tne day's program. Dr. Edward L. Clark of the U. S. Geological Survey will discuss the water supply. Engineering considerations in irrigation will be given by Herman Hall, Extension Engineer. Crop response to irrigation will be handled by Wm. J. Murphy, Extension Field Crops Specialist. Balanced farming and irrigation will be dealt with by Bob Pitney, Extension Farm Management Specialist. Credit for irrigation is the timely j _ i man, well known Southeast Missouri banker at Kennett. Displays of all types of irrigation and drainage equipment including well drilling can be seen. Three ways to irrigate can actually be seen in operation. These include sprinkler, gated pipe and open ditch methods. The State. Extension Service of Jie University of Missouri and irrigation and farm machinery manufacturers are going all out to "give farmers of the area the best possible information on irrigation according to publicity chairman W. F. James. Cane has decided on a theme for a booth. 4-H House Fund The home demonstration ladies in North Mississippi County have been working on a debt of $510 as their quota to finish paying for the 4-H House dormitory at Fayetteville. Recently a check for $300 was mailed which leaves $210 to be paid. The Sixteen Club recently contributed S15 to the 4-H and council fund which had been made at a cake-walk in that community. Cooking- Tips There are tricks in all trades and cooking is no exception. Here are some hints for making the job of cooking easier during hot summer days. Reach for a bag when you start to fry chicken. Put the flour and salt in the bottom of the bag, then drop the pieces of chicken in and shake until each piece is thoroughly coated. Use this same idea when you want to sugar doughnuts or cookies. Try using a plastic or ordinary paper bag when you need cracker crumbs. Put the crackers in, twist the top of the bag and crush with a rolling pin. There are no crumbs to clean. Scissors can make cutting easier and save your hands, too. Use scissors to snip parsley and to cut orange peel, green onions or celery. Trim the edge of the pie crust and the crust of bread with scissors. To peel tomatoes the easy way, rub with the dull edge of a knife and then peel off the skin. Or. you can dip the tomatoes into boiling- water, cold water, and then peel. Another way is to hold the tomato over a flame until the skin crinkles. Use aluminum foil to line the broiling pan. Throw it away and there will not be a greasy broiler pan. Use a piece of foil under juicy pies that might boil over into the oven. If you don't have a garbage dis posal, make it a practice to peel cut and trim all vegetables on pa IT'S ALL IN THE WATER—Darnell Whitt demonstrates the effect of the drought on irrigated, right, and nonirrigated, left, corn at an experimental farm near McCredie, Mo. The corn in both cases was planted the same day and given the same soil fertilizer. Whitt towers over the unirrigated corn and is dwarfed by the stalks that received plenty of water. Pemiscot Notes By W. F. James* Pemiscot County Agent COTTON CROPS LOOK GOOD cotton field. Shake stalks in 20 The cotton crop as a whole looks very promising in Pemiscot County. In judging 4-H Club cotton exhibits from over the county and in checking many fields for boll worm I find cotton carrying an unusually heavy boll crop. The crop on the average will be earlier due to heavier planting of early cotton varieties. The cotton flea hopper and kindred insects are doing considerable damage to blooms and small squares but the plants still will probably have as many late bolls as they can mature. Boll worms can be found in most fields but the lace wing and other insects are keeping them in check. A change to cool damp weather might change this situation. Verticillium wilt is very slight up to date due to the dry hot weather. Water soaked spots on bolls is due to angular leaf spot. As these spots dry and turn dark many people mistake this for boll worm damage. Quite often the boll, infested with this leaf spot disease, rots off at the base. When Worms Turn To Beans — Trouble We have quite a few green clover worms in soybeans but not enough to cause great damage yet. I have recently, found a few boll worms in soybeans. Now, these worms work where it hurts — they eat the young pods. It will be well to check your bean field about like you do your spots over the field. If you find 10 or 12 boll worms you would be justified in spraying. The boll worm is green with black spots on either side and is the same size from front to back. The green clover worm is longer and tapers off on each end. Sow Pasture Now Ground prepared and seeded to small grain now may save many tons of hay this fall and winter. Preparing land for seeding includes adding the needed plant foods and pulverizing and packing the soil until you think it is perfect then go over it once or twice more for good measure. If you packed the seed bed until there was only, loose dirt to cover the shoe sole when you walked over it — that would be the right condition. There is no substitute for seeding with a drill that can do as good a job. Uniform depth and covering of the seed is especially important in early fall seeding. Where small grains such as Barley, Wheat or Rye are sown for pasture it is advisable to double the rate. (Don't forget to give it plenty of fertilizer.)

Determine the source of water supply, if a deep well, spot the proper location. This is necessary not only for row-irrigation, but an important factor if flumes are to be constructed. 2. A farm survey, which shows the slope, soils, erosion factors, profile characteristics and land use capabilities. 1.' A map or plat to show elevations, existing turn-rows and roads, the lateral farm drains and main ditches, designate the farm drains that may be converted into flumes to carry water'. Designate the points on lateral drains where control structures must be installed to hold water at an elevation determined by surveys and show all other existing features pertinent to drainage or irrigation. With irrigation, adequate drainage becomes of greater importance, water must go in and out. 4. While the irrigation of the entire farm may not be planned at first, the plans should provide for future expansion, insofar as possible. I do not sell irrigation equipment. J. W.
