FK1DAY, APK11. 17, 1053 E (ARK.) COURIER NFW« PAGE NWS! REVIEW -"' FORECAST Flood Control and Soil Conservations Are Lauded SHREVKPOKT, La. (AP) — Flood control and soil conservation will help provide for America's expanding population, U. S. Senator Allen J. Ellender (D-La.) told the 28th an ial convention of the Red River Valley Association here. The Louisiana senator said that the agricultural surpluses of today will not be suffi- I cient to feed and clothe the population of 190 million the United States is expected to have in 1975. "Twenty five years hence," he said, "we are going to have to feed and clothe approximately 40 million more people than we feed and clothe today. According to our best agricultural experts, if the present population rates are only maintained, the 507 million acres we plan , to have in farmland by 1875 will be 23 I promise that Congress would great- million acres less than we need at|ly increase appropriations for flood that time. i control and soil conservation in th~ The convention got underway this immediate future.

It's a chemical pest- killer called "aldrin," the most c.Toctive answer so far to the I v.ornis that in the lasl three years caused greater damage to the mid'.-•?sc corn crop than any other : -l.e factor.

The senator »aid per cent of quiv national budget is going to past ware, present wars and preparation for defending ourselves in the !u- ture. He said that a way must be found to save our soil or future generations "might turn to belly Communism if we are unable to feed and clothe them." * A resolution will be presented to the convention calling for consolidation of the five offices of U. S. Engineers in the Red River Valley. Offices are now located in New Orleans, Vicksburg, Tulsa, Little Rock and Dallas. The Red River Valley Association is dedicated to flood control, navigation, soil conservation and reforestation. THE WORM TURNS — Corn in this farmer's right hand was grown on aldriii-treated stalks In left hand, ears show effect of rootworm on untreated corn. Agricultural experts also claim crop safety for this new insecticide. While aldrin kills plant enemies, neither the \plant nor the soil's chemical stability is affected, they report. Yesterday's corn growers fought the rootworm by breaking Its life cycle through turning precious corn fields over to less vital and profitable plants every two years. Today, aldrin may give a real break to farmers .cattlemen — and housewives. Weevils May Be Problem LITTLE ROCK (IP) — No heavy early boll weevil infestation is expected for Arkansas cotton fields, but if June and July are wet, heavy widespread weevil plagues may result then, an entomologist has said. Gordon Barnes, with the agricultural Extension Service, said that early infestations will occur only near favorable hibernation quarters in the state. Little Strawberry Crop Forecast LITTLE ROCK (let— The smallest strawberry crop in nine years may be harvested by Arkansas farmers this year. The Federal-State Crop Reporting Service says prospects, as April 1, were lor a crop of 291.0M crates, smallest since 1944. The report said the indicated yield of 3C crates per acre would be the smallest on record. The information was compiled before last Monday's killing frost which inflicted a loss to Searcj County strawberries estimated »t 20 to 50 per cent. The 'crop report said Scares County had the only prospect for a good crop. DOBBINS' COMEBACK—Milk route horses have made a comeback in Marion, 111., and irucks are being replaced by horses like "ike," shown here with milkman Roy Edmondson. Horses are "cheaper," according to Edmondson, and they behave better in traffic than mosl drivers. ATTENTION, COTTON GROWERS As a cotton grower, you are undoubtedly concerned over rising costs of production. The situation is alarming. Labor to hoe cotton is scarce and hard to find, especially after two or three rains, when everybody's crop gets grassy, somebody will not be able to get hoe- hands. Will that somebody be you? Would it not be wise now while you have time, to make plans to prevent weeds and grass from taking your crop? Niagara Chloro IPC will give your cotton a weed and grass free start and will control the weeds and grass for four to eight weeks.

More Pasture, Less Cotton, FHA Asserts Local Manager Says Farmers Asked to Cut Crop Mississippi County farmers cooperating in the program of the Farmers Home Administration are following plans to produce more efficiently on their farms this year, Dilmus H. Hearnsberger, FHA supervisor, reports. They are working to improve organization and manigement of their business. To do this, they will follow approved practices to further step up yields per acre and production per animal and eliminate all possible expenses by producing their own j "ood and feed. For example, they will try to buy fewer groceries and raise feed crops at less cost, Mr. Hearnsberger will visit the families and keep them posted on the latest methods recommended r crops and livestock. He also will advise them on actual need for additional machinery and household equipment and on ng good buys when they purchase.

Pasture Development Mr. Hearnsberger said the two nost important practices for Mis- issippi County will be developing jastures and expanding livestock enterprise, to supplement the de- lining income from cotton and iroducing more hay and grain. Borrowers are being urged to cut iown on their cotton planting this ear and fall in line with the De- jartment of Agriculture's current tress on cotton reduction. Farmers who receive supervised Something to Think About Health Specialist Miss Helen Robinson, health specialist from Little Rock, was here Wednesday, She gave me quite a bi of good information that will help on some of the projects being undertaken in the county this year such as mental health, voice culture and moderate exercise for weigh reduction. Other Visitors Miss Addle Barlow, district home demonstration agent and J. M Thomason, district agricultural agent will appear on the Home Demonstration County Council program which is scheduled for Tuesday. April 21, at the fairground. The public is invited. Cake Contest At 11:00 o'clock next Tuesday, April 21, there wilt be a cake contest in the Woman's Building at the fairground. Those entering cakes to be judged will also judge four cakes. General Mills will give prizes to the top five contestants. 4-H Dress Revue The 4-H Revue will be early this year. It is planned for the first week in June instead of waiting until the Rally. This will give the girls time to improve their dresses before the State 4-H Camp. arris over 14 years of age who are winners in the dress revue will get to is juicier and more tender. It turns out to be n beautiful brown without searing or basting. To roast meat choose tender cuts. Place the meat on a rack, fat side up, in a shallow pan. Do not cover or add water, cook at a low temperature 300 to 350 degrees F. until done. It takes less fuel to roast meat credit are expected to have the land and labor resources essential for successful fanning, and to follow a sound plan for making the most of them, Mr. Hearnsberger said. the right way. When you cook at low temperatures you don't have to watch tjie meat closely. The equipment will be easier to clean too, because the fat or greaee will not spatter and burn on the pan, rack or oven. There is always less dripping when meat Is cooked slowly. There will be more meat to serve too, because there's less shrinkage and because the juices of drippings stay in the meat. The drtppines are usually better because there's no danger oi burning. Be sure not to over cook meat. Roast It just until It's palatable. Over cooking increases shrinkage, and the meat becomes less juicy. 4-11 Achievement Day At the last 4-H Club meetings before school is out, 4-Hers will display many things that they have made during the year. This will include sewing, handicraft, baking, etc. At a recent 4-H meeting, the Clear Luke girls displayed the following foods that they had cooked: Pudge, cookies, cake, pie. sandwiches, ei'een beans, potatoes, potato salad, biscuits, cornbread, and cocoa. These girls range in ages from 10 to 14 years. Lost Cane The Lost Cane 4-H girls have been working. Thirteen have done some home improvement such as cleaning yards, setting out flowers, rearranging furniture, helping paper rooms and paint woodwork, repaired chairs, and cleaned house. Six girls have done some sewing. They have made one pair of pillow cases, seven aprons, six tea towels, and two handkerchiefs. Girls working on handicraft have made 18 pot holders from jersey loops. • Good Buys Asparagus is only one of the spring vegetables selling at lower prices—Onions tvre also cheaper. Cabbage, carrots, and celery continue to be good buys. Broccoli, snap beans, and greens are monev- ately priced, costing less tha nthey did a year ago. There is not much change in the .fruit situation. Oranges, granefruit and the citrus Juices remain the jest buys. Beef continues plentiful with prices below a year ago. Egg production is near its season peak but below & year earlier. Eggs cost about lOc a dozen more now than they did a year ago. Con- ilderlng their food value, however, md comparing the price with that )f other foods of similar value, eggs ire always a good buy.
