At present it is being set up as a parl of the special farm management service available through your county agent's office to interested farmers. It is anticipated that this farm record analysis service will be patterned after that which has been functioning so successfully in Illinois, Kansas and a number of other states for several years.

COLLEGE HEIGHTS, Ark. — "When the growing of cotton spread from the United States to Nicaragua did the boll weevil go with it or did Nicaragua already have these insects? According to Wayne Lemons, agricultural instructor at Arkansas A. and M. College, who recently returned from helping Nicaraguans set set up a cotton insect control program, the Nicaraguans already had them. The boll -weevil is essentially a tropical insect and came to the 0. S. by way of Mexico, he said. It is a native of Central America and Mexico. The Indians of Nicaragua already had small plots of cotton and the boll weevils, though few in number, lived in those plots. The expansion of the. Nicaraguan cotton industry simply added to the territory available for exploitation by native Nicaraguan boll weevils. The Nicaraguans already had both cotton and boll weevils and it ttas Lemons' job, while on leave from A. and M., to show the natives how to control these pests.
