FRIDAY, JULY 28,1950 BLYTHEVTLLE. (ARK.) COimiER NEWS PAGE Cotton Council Head Stresses Benefits of Free Enterprise DALLAS, Texas, July 28.—Though government has an essential role to play in the American economy, it is the of the people to see that government does not over-play its part or play it badly, Harold A. Young, North Little Rock, Ark., president of the National Cotton Council, told the Cotton Research Congress today. The cotton Council, which repre-t • all segments of the cotton in- ,,„„ „.,, ,..„ , „,_, _ _ r Fertilizer Use In Arkansas Is Up 32 Per Cent dustry from farmer through spinner, holds firmly to the ideal of a free economy powered by the profit incentive, Mr. Young said. "This ideal is impossible of full achievement," he continued. "Yet by keeping our eyes on it and approaching it as" nearly as we could in generations past, we have converted a wilderness into the richest t'.nd most powerful nation that the world has ever'seen." Operating under the free enterprise system, Mr; 'Young said'(lint during the past 30 to 35 years the real income of the. average American iias doubled and there is good prcspect ''that lie can' redouble his real income again m (he next 35 years or less." Frt:e I'>nm)my Necessary Aside from the .standard of living aspect, the speaker told the confcr- ;n.tes that a free economy to the nation because "without It iio freedom at all con ultimately survive." "No government can lake over the control of an economy without taking with it tile power to coerce people into doing the work it decides they must do," Mr. Young asserted. "Human government has always ami will uriways he too slo 1 and clumsy to replace the delicate machinery of the market place without bringing oppression and rcsnetment to the people. As resentment rises, freedom of speech of the press, of assembly, and ol worship, must go into the discard with economic freedom.' In the Council's own program, it ha ssought to adhere as rigidly as possible to the principles of free economy, he said, pointing out that in the early days of the organization the synthetic fiber industry had feared that cotton would endeavor to offset competition through legislation. "The temptation was a real one." he said, "because the vast cotton economy probably had enough strength to do the job easily that vay. But sve scorned that way of doing business, and we scorn It .till. It would have set the whole •ourse of our program in the wrong lirectlon—away from competition and in the direction of government control. The Council decided to ight its competition in what it considered the American way—the way of research and advertising, ower costs, higher efficiency, and more aggressive selling." Opposes Krannan IMan In the field of research. Mr. Young said that the Council "accepts the fact that the millions of small individual farmers have no feasible.means of doing an adequate job for themselves, and therefore it supports adequate federal and state research programs. "But the Council opposes governmental research which can better done by private enterprise, and WASHINGTON, D. C., July 28— Figures released by the National Fertilizer Association show that Arkansas farmers used 32 percent more chemical fertilizer In 19-19 than they did In 1548. 334,142 tons as compared with 253,070 tons, compared with the abount used during the prewar year of 1930. the latest fertilizer consumption figure represents ail increase of approximately 322 percent. In the South Central States, the use of chemical fertilizers rose 4 percent, totaling 3,839.545 tons it devotes a major part of its efforts | compared witll the 1948 total of Council itself has been a pioneer to stimulating private research. The Council itself has been a pioneer in cotton marketing research, and now has a large program in that field." The cotton industry official said that the Council is completely in accord with the major farm organizations in their opposition to the Brannan plan for agriculture.. "This plan would completely destroy the significance of the market and enthrone instead the federal government as the, complete arbiter of our economic lives—and eventually our political lives as well," he commented. "The Brannan Plan is as outright a proposal of socialism as this country has ever hearfl from any responsible source! It appeals to the Immediate selfish interest of farmers and consumers alike, and trusts that they will not have vision enough to see that it surrenders the essence of freedom in American agriculture." 3,689.190 tons.

The u-year record of uninterrupted increase in the level of fertilizer consumption is attributable to several factors, among the most important being the desire of American farmers to increase their crop yields and their readiness to accept and apply scientific practices to accomplish this. Other factors Include the declining reserve of pdant food in. the soil; the realization that 'fertilizer use cuts land and labor costs per crop unit, thus increasing farm profits; the greater requirements of new high-yielding crop varieties such us hybrid corn; and the recognition that pasture is a r^sh crop which should be fertilized.

Ro/sers Urged to Check For Rhinitis LITTLE ROCK, Ark., July 14 — If pigs sneeze frequently and their snouUs later become "pushed In" or twistecE, swine raisers should be on their guani/They may have a .serious disease problem in their herds. That warning Itxlay from the Americon Foundation for Animal Health pointed out that excessive f.neezing, coughing and a jH'euImr I ook lo pigs' f ac e.s in n y me cm an outbreak of infections rhinitis. The malady nppears to be spreading, authorities say. "Infectious rhinitis does not kill many animals out right," a Foundation bulletin report.s, "but it may stop gains to the point where hoj? raising Ls no longer profitable. Even well-fed pigs fail to put on weight.' "In many instances, farmers have mistaken infections' rhinitis for ''bull nose." The two conditions appear similar, but bull nose starts from an injury, and infection with barnyard germs. It Ls not, contagious. Infectious rhinitis, howtwer, is caused by a disease 'or^ani-:m, possibly a virus, which stays In heri iffcMon after season. ' -" "If owners suspect infections rhinitis, they should Ect an immediate veterinary diagnosis. Piompt [control niensure-s are of major i:n- I parlance in holding down losses." On Missco Farms 23S.OO[I farmhouses are being remodeled this year. Also, ](i2,763 large barns and 205.757 other farm buildings are being remodeled or rebuilt.

July 28—"Mid-South Farm Youth on Parade." Thai will be the theme ol the 1950 Mld-Soulh Pair and Livestock Show, which will open here Sept. 21, for n 10-day run. Two major agencies dedicated to the development of ngrlcultlrc in the Mld-Soutl] have Joined hands (life year to present tin agricultural exhibit that i.s destined to exceed anytliliic of its kind ever before attempted by Fair officials. The Agricultural Extension Serv- ices of Arkansas. Mississippi, ind Tennessee will demonstrtte the work of 4-H Clubs, while the Vo- cntlonnl Education Department* of the same slates will present the achievements of Future Farmer* of. America and Future Hom«m«km of America.

POINTERS for car buyers The Simple Truth About "EASY TERMS" It is often more convenient to buy a car out of income, rather limn pay cash. Bui lo do so involves additional cosl. So it is important lo keep this cost as low as possible. Tor instance, twenty-four months of financing service costs twice as much as twelve. The cheapest and best way lo buy on time payments is lo pay all you can down and pay as much per nionlli as you can comfortably afford. Don'l l>c misled by so-called "Easy" paymcnls. Take lime lo check on all cosls as well as services proposed when you buy. ASK ABOUT THE GMAC PLAN . . .

All lose Inquiries will receive a farm 'Isit this week if possible. While nt C. A. Evans' farm at Lost Cane Saturday morning we 'olind that a fairly serious insect .nfestation had dwindled down to a much less damaging singe and dnsl- liii! will not be necessary. I had advised Mr. Evans to dust Ills cotton for fleahoppcr and larnlslicd ilant bug but the week's rain kept him out of the field and now the plants nre fruiting freely and barring further infestation lie will be none the worse off. About Boll Wrcvil Sooner or later the talk gets around lo boll weevil. Mississippi County is on the northern edge of the area usually visited by our common cncruy and we are not couni- Ing on very many. Muss migrations in August might cause some damage hut even that Is unlikely. We know for sure that no weevils over-wintered hnre because if [hey had there would be second brood weevil: here already. The adult stage Is the only «-ay the boll weevil spend the winter and upon emerging In the spring goes directly lo the nearest and largest cotton. After laying from one up lo 150 cges they die. From then on until frost generations succeed each other about every 25 dn.vs. Three stages (egg. larvae, and i>npa) are spent inside Ihc square. The new weevil spends the next five to seven days feeding and then starts on an egg laying spree of its own. There Is no cause for alarm about boll weevil.

Haven't had a chance to examine one clo.sely hut from Ihc appearance they certainly give credit to the Fair, County and the officials. Forgive me If 1 sound pessimistic but mention of a fair reminds me that more than a few children were injured last year while showing cnlves in the ring at county, district, and stale fairs. Cnlves that have not been well gentled nnd trained may give trouble—not only to the owner but. to other exhibitors nnd stock. Gentling nnd breaking the calf to .stand lied and to lead must be done early. Quiet and kind handling nt 'all times Is the best menus of training n call for the show ring. An adjustable halt Inch rope halter seems to be best for leading and tying. H Is strong, tils I well and the pressure from the It-ud rope will receive immediate response from the calf. Lumber Dealers Feel Impact of Farm Building Lumber dealers nre feeling Ihe impact of a fnrm building and remodeling boom which Is sweeping across the nation (his year. A rc- •Jcnt survey by the U.S. Department of Agriculture shows thai one million farmhouses and farm service buildings nre involved. The survey reports 102.873 new farmhouses being built. 107.178 new barns and 216.81:; smaller farm buildings going up. In addition.
