PAGE TEN FRIDAY, JULY «. MM < AKK -> COURIKR NKW8 Meat Production Up in Arkansas Slaughter of Cattle, Calves, Hogs in May Larger than in April Commercial slaughters In Arkansas killed more animals of all species during May than In the previous month, according to the State and Federal Crop Reporting Service. Slaughter or cattle wits up 18 percent, the Service said. Slaughter of calves was ui> nine percent and slaughter of hogs up 13 percent above the April totals. Compared with May of last vear, M percent more hogs went to" the block while the slaughter ot cattle and calves declined nine and 43 percent, respectively. The Arkansas spring pig crop was five percent above last year's and the largest since 191J, the Service said. Reports of farmers on breeding intentions indicate a fall pig cron slightly larger than last year, which If realized, would make the largest annual pig crop since 194.1, some three percent hgher than In 1049. U. S. Production Same Meat production in the nation this summer is expected to equal that of last summer, the Service said. About as many barrows and gilts as a year earlier and a few more sows are expected to be slaughtered. Marketing of cattle from feedlots may not be as large this summer as last, preventing beef supplies from eqaulling last year until late in th» season when grain-fed cattle move to market. More cattle were on feed last winter and spring than in 1949 but they were, scheduled for later marketing, the Service's report Aphids Cause Ant Invasions On Most Trees Ants on trees ordinarily are cause for concern only because they may indicate the presence of some other tree trouble, often the presence of (he aphid, commonly called the "ant cow" because it produces the sweet, sticky excretion known as "honeydew" on which ants dote. However, these anU usually do not harm your trees, white aphids do. Aphirts are small plant lice which suck juice from leaves and tender twigs, sometimes to the point where leaves fall prematurely In alarming numbers. Best way to get rid of ants is to eliminate aphids, advises I W. C. Lanck, field representative [ of the Davey Tree Expert Co. Above all. tlon't try to discourage an(.s by i ixmrlng gasoline or kerosene about the base of an infested tree. Fitch year, Irce experts find trees with bark completely dead, all around trunks at ground level. They are girdled and virtually nothing can be done to save them. Investigation invariably shows owners used chemicals ill-ariviscdly to rout ants. The Norway maple Is one of the major victims, undoubtedly because it Is n favorite host of aphids. fiarely the ant.s may be harmful sorts such as the 'large black car- Aug. 1 Deadline For Applying for Market Service Farmers have only 10 more days In which to file their application;, /or free government classing and market service Milliard i,, Garner of the Agriculture Department's Memphis cotton classing office .said yesterday. Deadline /or filing of applications for these services !s Aug. 1, Mr. Garner said. All farmers who are members of an organized cotton Improvement group «re eligible Jo apply. Last year about 62 percent of the cotton ginnings In this urea were classed by the Memphis classing office, Mr. Garner said. This cotton was classed for farmers without cost under provisions of the Smlth- IXixey Act. Applications should b« mailed to the U. S. Department o( Agriculture, Post Office Box 363, Memphis. said. The extra quantity of pork will result from the larger 1950 spring pig crop. The crop of 60 million pigs last spring was three percent larger than the 1949 spring crop and it was R new peacetime record. Beef In storage In the United States on June 1 amounted to 73.000.000 pounds. Of this, frozen beef totalled 64,000.000 pounds which compares with 76.000,000 pounds In storage June 1, 1949. lienter ant.s and the mound-building ants. For them the most convenient control Is usually the use of ant bait 1 ! which can be purchased from garden supply houses. Aphids. which are of many kinds, rind happy hunting grounds Jn a great variety of trees .including apple arborvltae, fir, beach, biack cherry, spruce, boxeldcr. birch, cy- pre-ss, hawthorn, hickory, linen, pine poplar redcedar and fcullptree. They can be curbed with nicotine sprays. Since aphid populations grow so fast—the pest can reproduce without mating—It \s advisable to spray over a fairly large area. Spraying only a few trets Is often unsatisfactory since they may be quickly relnlested from unsprayed trees in the vicinity.

Several vegetables can be left In the garden late into the \yin- ter. or all winter long, and harvested is needed, to be thawed out •nd served. Kale will provide the table with greens all winter long. Brussels sprouts stands freezing and thawing in the early winter, and frequently remains in good condition until Christmas. Parsnips which freezing makes sweeter, and sal- sify, the vegetable oyster, can be dug up all winter, or dug in the fall, placed in paper bags, one serving to the bag, and stored in a box j should be kept growing during the summer months by good soakings during dry periods. Endive is another leafy salad vegetable to saw for fait use. The cnrly type, which has flnely cut leaves and snow-white hearts, and the broad leaved or escarollc. should be started in a seed box and shaded lightly until the plants develop. As soon as the seedlings have made two or three leaves move them to their permanent rows. It is even better practice to transplant twice, setting them 2 or 3 inches high in a shaded bed or frame and waiting until the outdoors where they will freeze. A | middle of August to put them in bag can be taken to the kitchen and I Permanent quarters, when they thawed out when wanted. -•.--.••• . Kale is an evergreen member of the cabbage family with finely slashed and ruffled foliage similar I to parsley. Sow seeds In July for the xvinter .crop, ind .In September for the spring crop. It requires the same culture as cabbage and cauliflower, and has the same insect pests and needs the same insecticides. 'Kale ii best when frozen, and has • delicate cabbage flavor when cooked. The dwart-curled type is best for the small garden, and they , should be set out a foot apart. Turnips for the /all and winter supply must be sown in June and July. They will get a start and make a slow growth until the cool weather sets in and then they will rapidly develop fine solid roois. They should be sown in rows and thinned and then a uniform crop of finely shaped roots will be harvested, a delight to the eye, and o( the best table quality. Thev will also furnish fine roots to exhibit at the fall shows where turnips are always one ot the staples exhibited.
