FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 1956 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NINE RE VIEW ™° FORECAST ' On Missco Farms Bj KEITH BILBREr C»nnl7 Can't Stand It I often hear farmers say and I also read In the papers statements like this, "Farmers just can't stand another cotton acreage cut." The heck you can't! If you can't sell it, eat it or get rid of it to soraf way you might see several acreage cuts in the future. The February, 1956 - Digest of Foreign Agricultural Trade, printed . by U.S.D.A. in Washington says, among' other things, "Cotton poses the biggest problem. July- January .export value of $170,000,000 this year compared with $413,000,000 in cotton exports in the same period last year. Foreign production has more than doubled in the past ten yenvi,. Dulh it and synthetic fibers are outselling U. S. cotton in foreign markets." I Have Company Ever once in a while some farmer says, "Bilbrey. I am with you on this advertising of cotton. I don't think it would be bad if we donated $1.00 > bale for advertising." If you feel that way, then I remind you of the folks in the past that have bellyached their heads off because the gins have deducted ten cents a bale for National Cotton Council advertising. I picked up » magazine this week .and a. full page ad said, "II you buy work clothes read this." The picture showed a pair of overalls made out of some' synthetic by the side o? a pair of cotton overall*. (Guess which one looked the best and had lasted the longest, in that chemical or acid factory?) I understand they paid $17,000 tor that one page ad. If somebody asked you Mississippi County farmers for $11,000 for a one page ad promoting cotton, what would you do? ' I still say you are going to have to advertise cotton, more and more If you stay in business and keep it profitable. Lagt Chance Tbi* perhaps la the last chance you will have to hear Dr. Ivan Wood, the nationally famous irrigation specialist from Denver, Cola. I understand he reaches retirement age in July. He will be our featured speaker at the public irrigation meeting in Manila at the S. C.. S. office next Tuesday night, March 20. * The Ball Bounces About 20 4-H Club .basketball teams, both boys and girls, are playing a tournament at the Lost Cane School today and tomorrow. Finals will be played Saturday night, March 17. Why not go and support the youngsters? International Bepercucslon I forgot to tell you about the long staple cotton growers success in Arizona. Breeders have produced, an outstanding long staple " — ' Arable with the np; Egyptian long staple variety, Karnak. It wasn't selling so good so these growers asked Secretary of Agriculture to lower the support price on this particular cotton to 75 percent. The Secretary agreed. The growers assessed themselves $3.00 a bale for promotional campaigns to hasten the acceptance of the new variety by the women's- wear trade. Their cotton is now selling so well that the Egyptians are complaining about losing their long staple American market. Research S»y» More and bigger roses will reward you for fighting black spot year in and year out without fail. In research tests roses were dusted once a week in the entire growing season and compared with undusted roses. Bushes dusted regularly with copper - sulphur mixture, yielded H19 blooms in May and June compared to 492 blooms in the untreated plots. Good control was obtained In these experiments with a 6% formulation of Zineb, also with mixtures containing 3.4% copper and 24% sulphur, or 7.6% Ferbam and 25% sulphur. I mentioned this because Blytheville and North Mississippi County people are definitely planting more roses this month than any year before in history. . .

An egg a day has a place in every well-balanced diet. It is no wonder that eggs are such a popular food. They are full of food values, being noted for their proteins, vitamins and minerals. Egg protein is in the same class as that of meat and milk and can be used instead of meat. Eggs are a good choice for any meal of the day because they are so easy to prepare. Eggs can be used in many ways—as eggs, "hidden" away in cooking. They 'are good and nutritious either way. There is no trick to cooking eggs so they retain their flavor, tenderness, and attractiveness—if one rule is followed. The rule Is to cook eggs with low to moderate even heat. Like all protein foods, eggs cooked at too high a temperature get tough and leathery.

Vitamin A This time of year our diets are likely to be short in graen and yellow vegetables. For good nutrition we need to eat one serving of green or yellow vegetables every day. These help to furnish vitamin A —the vitamin that helps to keep the lining of the nose and throat healthy; the skin moist; and our eyes' able to adjust to bright light. Carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A. They are regular vegetables of all trades. It is a part of numerous stews, pot roasts, soups and chowders. Carrots go into vegetables and nut loaves, into sandwiches and Into salads. Green* of all kinds are rich In vitamin A. In comparing greens, remember "the thinner and greener the leaf the more vitamin A." The habit of serving a green leafy vegetable every day is a good one. To save food value! in cooking greens.
