FRIDAY, HOYEMBER M, WS4 BLTTHBftttl OOtJWBR IfBWB PA9I NINB REVIEW *«» FORECAST Plant Disease Is Target of University Now FAYETTEVILLB—The University of Arkansas' Arlcultural Experiment Station is Intensifying it* research against a major cause of plant diseases and low crop yields in many areas of the state.- Dean Llppert S. Ellis, director of the Station, has announced that the plant pathology department is be• ginning a fundamental survey into the occurrence of nematodes in Arkansas soils. At the same time, it* applied research into ways of controlling plant diseases caused by nematodes will be expanded. Nematodes that attack plants are small, microscopic animals from 'A to 1 millimeter' in length. Most of the more important species live in the soil. They are Icnown to attack a great variety of plant*, including cotton, rice, small grains, vegetables, fruits, and trees. There are a great many different species of nematodes and how many are present in Arkansas is not known. Hence the need to determine which are at work in the state, and where. Slack in Charge Dr. D. A. Slack .assistant professor of plant pathology, will be in charge of the survey. A graduate assistant will help with the laboratory work, and county extension agents are cooperating In securing samples from problem spots and areas. Meanwhile applied research against / the rootknot nematode on cotton and the nematodes causing rice tip disease ana various other specific diseases will be expanded, according to Dr. E. M. Oralley, head of the department. Control measures will include application of soil nematicides. seed treatment with nematicides against' those species carried on the seed' determine varietal resistance, and of the host plant, experiments to effects of crop rotations on some MAMA'S HELPER—Called "Calf-Teria," this unit provide* portability plus adjustable height that mama cow couldn't provide for her youngster.

Cooperative Effort Because nematodes have become increasingly important as plant pests, many states are focussing attention on the problem. Nine southern states have begun a cooperative research study into the control of plant parasitic nematodes. As one of the nine states, Arkansas will make available to others benefits of what It learns, and will in turn benefit from the research in the other eight. In addition to Dr. Slack, other members of the Arkansas plant pathology staff will study the problem as It affects the crops with which they are concerned. Year's Crop Is Big One, After All WASHINGTON Ml — Despite heavy drought damage in some areas, this year's harvest is estimated to be within 3 per cent of the large 1953 yields. Reporting this yesterday, the Agriculture Department said crop prospects increased about 1 per cent in October, indicating a total harvest nearly equal to the 1947-49 verage. Besides the drought damage, production was held down somewhat by government controls on planting of such crops as wheat, cotton and corn. Looking ahead, the department said the outlook for next year's crops of wheat and other fall-sown grains is generally good. Review of Work On Insects Seen Dallas Conference Will Honor 100 Years In Entomology MEMPHIS — A brief review of significant accomplishments In a century of insect warfare will be presented Dec. 2-3 in Dallas, as part of the recognition being given this year to the hundredth anniversary of organized entomology In America. Delegates to the eighth annual Beltwide Cotton Insect Control Conference also will take a searching look in the future and consider the challenges that He ahead. E. F. Knipling. chief, entomology research branch, USDA, has recently pointed out that at least 10 per cent of the production from our soils is destroyed by Insects. He is a featured speaker on the conference program. "We can only speculate what these losses would be without the entomological information developed during the past 100 years. Certainly our agricultural industry, and in turn the nation's economy, would not be what it is today," Dr. Knipling said. Valuable to Cotton Specifically on. the subject of what insect control has meant to cotton. Dr. Knipling cited results of more than 30 years of insecticide field trials at. Tallulah, La., carried on by the Agricultural Research Service. There it was found that plots in which insects were controlled gave an annual average seed-cotton yield of 1,826 pounds per acre— 25.5 per cent more cotton .than from untreated plots, which averaged 1,445 pounds per acre. Delegates will take a close look at the almost revolutionary postwar development of the organic Insecticides and the improved mechanical methods of application. It will be emphasized that all phases of entomology — research, control, teaching, and extension — must be closely coordinated if future problems are to be met. 500 Expected Practically all public and private entomologists working on cotton insect control throughout the Cotton Belt will attend the Council-sponsored conference. Approximately 500 are .expected, All persons planning to attend the meeting are urged by the Council's production and marketing division to apply at once for hotel reservations as there has been some difficulty in securing accommodations. All sessions will be held at Hotel Adolphus, where conference leaders have been recently assured that all conferees will be accommodated so long as they are careful to Drought Aid Bill Planned It Would Offer Aid To Arid Rtgiont WASHINGTON Ml — Legislation to sot up a permanent, national drought control program may be Introduced In the next Congress by Rep. Edmondson (D-Okla). Such a federal program, he said yesterday, would be, operated in cooperation with state and local agencies and would not impinge on liny existing water resource programs. He said during »n Interview that details of the proposed bill have not yet been worked out. He has asked the Agriculture Department and the Army engineers for suggestions. "We have a permanent program of flood control," Edmondson stated, "yet drought does many times the damage that floods do to the country." This Year's Agri Census Is Slow Lack of Farmer Cooperation Is Cited as Reason COLUMBIA — Robert W. Burgess, national director of the 195* agricultural census, reports thai the progress of the 1954 census 61 agriculture is slow. He reports that farmers have not cooperated as fully as in 1050 with the request that they fill and have ready their questionnaires when census takers arrive to collect information. As a consequence, Burgess says the progress of the census is slowed, the work of the census tak ers is made more difficult and the cost of taking the census is greatly increased. Burgess notes that it is to the farmer's self-interest as taxpayers to help keep down the cost of the census and that Information which they are being asked to help com pile is important to them. Business men who supply the farm market's needs, agricultura leaders to whom farmers look fo: guidance and the government agen cies requiring information regard irg the nation's resources neet this census information nbou farms find farm operators In thei services, not only to farmers but to the remainder of the 163 million people in the United Stales, Burg ess points out. "o, he appeals to Missouri farnr ers to make an effort to have theii census forms completed before the census taker visits their farms In order that the job can be speeded and costs reduced. mention the eighth annual Beltwide Cotton Insect Control Conference In their requests for reservations.

Phone 3-4434 South Highway 61 Swtefa JOHN DEERE QUALITY FARM EQUIPMENT GOP Surprises In Farm Belts DopiU Hut and Cry, Republicans Hang Up Some Victories By OVID A. MARTIN WASHINGTON tfp| - EWspltft a controversy over the flexible price support program, Republicans marked up significant election victories in farm belt states. Some successful GOP candidates differed with the administration but the overall results did not represent a repudiation of the new farm policies pushed through Congress by President Eisenhower Urban Are** Help Demoa Unofficial returns indicated that. Congressional and statchouse gains by Democrats were confined largely to urban areas. The midwest results were viewed, too, as a farmer vote of confidence in Secretary of Agriculture Benson, who spenrhendcd the administration drive for variable farm price guarantees to replace high, rigid supports. Backing for Benson Counted out by his crlUcfi several times since he started plugging a program aimed at "taking the government out of agriculture," Benson's position appeared to be stronger than ever. Democrats had expected declining farm prices to help swing Midwest farmers their way. But the Republicans held their own in most farm-belt congressional districts, traditionally Republican, and staged a major upset in defeating veteran Democratic Sen. Guy M. Gillette In Iowa, Gillette's defeat was regarded as significant because he had campaigned against the GOP flexible support program—which was endorsed by Rep. Thomas E. Martin, his GOP conqueror.
