Mulching Protects Vegetables Against Heat and Weed Growth Mulching vegetables as a men- growth of feeds or grass Hint sure o( conserving moisture and would take bolh moisture and for- nffording; protection ngnlust extreme heat and weed growth was recommended: (o Arkansas Victory gardeners yesterday by Karl J. Al- Jcn, extension .horticulturist. : Mulching, Record Ing to Mr. Allen, is one of the practices that contributes most to continuous production tfirough the hot, dry, summer monllis. Normally there arc lengthy periods .during laic June; July, and August when excessive evaporation tind lack of rnin may result In damage to growing vegetables. By applying a mulch of oat, wheat, or. rice . straw, leaves from last fail's Hikings or pine needles, however, he said, the soil surface can be protected from being dried oiit by clllicr sun or wind. The",mulch will also prevent the Kill Bed Bugs ' Sprfly inlestod rooms, . walls, bedding with flee - Brand Insect Spray! Kills flier, mosquitoes, too. Sorry, «ur tft Siiaj Insect Towdn cwtaiM t*r dunlin,. tlllty from the vegetables. The mulch, he advised, should be applied as soon as jmsslblc between the rows of vegetables, m- around plants. Since it should be two lo four inches deep after settling or packing down, at least five or six Inches of straw or leaves will be required at the (line the mulch is applied. In addition to protecting tho soil from drying and serving to smother weeds and grass, Mr. Allen said, a mulch will net as a sponge and Will absorb much more water during summer rains lhaii will unprotected soil surfaces. Even 'though Ihe victory gardener Is able lo water Ihe garden with a hose a mulch will • reduce the number of liTlgnUon.1 needed. And, also, n mulch serves to keep soil lempera- lurcs lower during hot summer days. IllBh soil temperatures will often result In poor plant growth even Ihuugli there is plenty of moisture In the soil. Home Demonstration Clubs Play Part In Helphing Strengthen Churches Many of the best leaders in Arkansas were converted at the altars of Ihe rural churches of this state. We know that many of our rural churches are still active, but the extremely large number that arc either inactive- or struggling for existence offers a challenge to all Christian people if we are lo maintain, much less strengthen, our rural places of worship.

Recent experiments with swine have proved definitely Dial medium-type hogs, within breeds, arc more desirable from both Ihe Btand|X)lnt of economical gain and consumer preference, the Extension animal husbandman said. The long rangy-type hog require;, more feed per 100 pounds of gain and Is not finished at desirable market weight. The short, chum- jy-lytie hog nlso requires more feed per 100 pounds of gain, and when finished carries more fat in IDS ANGELES (UP)-Mrs. Adela Apoiinca has .somelliing of the spirit of the Army chaplain who inspired "Praise (lie Lord and pass Clmrlton of the University of the feeding ratio on swine in lh ifflllallon will also be high.- 1 Tills points to a lesson of cooperation amoni: the rural leadership; (lie work of another.

Farmers can utilize feed more profitably . by maintaining .fewer and more prolific brood sows, which membership, will occur. A decline hi rural clinrelics Is a part of the decline In group life in neighborhoods or localities. Village and town church membership' has Increased, but the increase Is not duo lo more rural families Joining town or village churches. The number of churches In l!)2(i ivas U.807, and la ISMG there were only D.OtH, a loss of 1,740 churches In tile 10-year period. Must of this loss wiis In rural churches. 'Hie membership in all churches in 1920 was (121,101 and TO It had declined to 570,219. The decline of Ihe rural church offers a real challenge lo all Christian people, and to rural or- jnnlntlons In particular. Home lemonstrntlon clubs arc playing a )«rt.In a- movement to strcngth- 211 rural churches. This year np- iraxlniHtcly 1.200 of the 2,230 home, lemonstrntlon clubs In Arkansas win discuss ways of strengthening he rural church. Continued inter-'. cst In Christian work is kept be'ori: tin: GS.iifjo members in their ta'otlonai exercises at each mect- ng. , . Interest-In the rural church is shown by the farm organizations [trough their publications and ac- ivltles hi connection with local, county,-; state,'-: and national pro-' jriiins. One of "the' major functions of farm organialion, that of increasing farm income, gives suit- Mr t to the rural church by mak- njj it possible to better finance the church program. According to information given by Kolb and Brewer, in their 'Rural Sociology," a person who ias an Income of $200 lo ?'jOO con- .ribulcd $13.05 to the church- an ncoine of $300 to $400, $14.48- an Income of $400 lo $500, S18.38; and an income of over $500, $16.92. When the war Is won it, will not be enough to just solve the economic and material problems that confront us. We are told of many plans for saving the world Irom ruin; but there Is only one plan that will ever work, and lhat is the plan outlined by our Saviour.

Such plus, Muldrow says, usually develop Into hogs of higher market value. With hous supported by a tI3.7S price per 100 pounds at Chl- tatuo by the government, farmers are encouraged lo grow hogs to utlllKc these foods which only hogs can turn Into profits. Biced associations are taking steps lo encourage their member breeders to select medium-type hogs. Production registry and Register of Merit work arc being carried on to recognize prolific sows which produce pigs with ability to use feed economically, make rapid .alns, and obtain n desirable finish fcr marketing. In addition to this work being carried on with breeders, the associations are giving emphasis to barrow shows at state and county fairs. Also special conferences arc iiB held with lending breeders, field men. and representatives from the U. S. Department of Asiicnl- liire and the slain colleges or agriculture to study and compare notes on the most desirable market type of hogs.

Victory Gardeners Can Stretch Points nation polnU will go frutlicr next Fall and Winter if Victory gardeners will replant vegetables !ls soon as each early eorp matures, advised Earl J. Allen of the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. Reports thai food production will be-under estimates, warn.? Die Extension horticulturist, may mean greater point values for canned vegetables In the future. Therefore, to ciiBiirc a continuous vegetable supply, the ground should be cleared and prepared for seeding when the early crops maUirc. I'lantlngs or bush snap beans may be made every 10 days to three tote in order to have a con- stunt supply of green beans for table use. A second crop of jjole beans may be planted now to provide fresh beans for Mill, and beans for canning or drying for the Winter. Plantings of bush lima beans, cucumbers, and cantaloupes, may be matle now. Cucumbers and cantaloupes mill mature before frost. Sweet corn and popcorn arc two crops that should go into the ground soon for Pall production. Gardeners who saved small potatoes from the early Irish potato crop, may plant these later in July tor a Fall crop. With plantings of short-season, cool-wonlher crops Inter on In Au- ;ust and early September, the Victory garden will be Just as productive In tbc tail as It was in the Spring and early Summer.
