FRIDAY, DECEMBER 8, BtTTHBYILWI (XRK.f COURIER NEWS PAGE HLHYEM RE VIEW "° FORECAST On Missco Farms Bj KEITH B1LBREY. Coutj Afent Farmer Progress As a County Agent send teacher, representing your "University and the USDA it's one at my responsibilities to encourage and train people in farm organization like the Farm Bureau. 'It's a job of mine to convince you, if you aren't already, that you can accomplish a great deal more for yourself and protect your interests much more efficiently through group action. It's a job of mine to help train and encourage farm people to become leaders, people who are respected by their neighbor, people who can think on their feet, people who can influence others. Then, because of these objectives, I feel real pride in the accomplishments of the Mississippi County Farm Bureau in 1954. The leadership, too, has ben a delight to me. If you did not attend the annual meeting of the Mississippi County Forests Show Drought Damage 1952 and 1953 Were Tough Years for Trees Results of a survey of drouth kill in Missouri forests during 1952 and 1953 show that only a small percentage of trees died, says Paul y. Burns, forester at the University of Missouri. However, reports of dead and dying trees in 1954 indicate that the effects of the drouth have been locally more severe. About 1300 pole and sawtimber trees, located on 80 permanent plots in 23 counties, were examined in early 1954. These trees were alive before the current drouth began. Slightly less than 1 percent of these test trees died during 1952 and 1953. Tree deaths occurred more commonly in dense stands than in open stands, presumably because of competition for soil moisture. During this period, tree deaths were equally as frequent on cool, north slopes as on warm, south slopes or ridges. Information is not complete on the effects of the 1954 drouth but in some timber stands, the lack of soil moisture caused serious losses of timber volume, Burns says. In south Missouri, the species affected most by the drouth is scarlet oak. Black oak, another important component of southern Missouri forest's, has also been adversely affected by the drouth. Post oak, hickory and pine have resisted the drouth.

The year's accomplishments reviewed there should have convinced any farmer that the Mississippi County Farm Bureau was valuable to farmers in 1954. State Convention Forty Mississippi County leaders attended the State Farm Bureau Convention in Little Rock, November 21, 22, and 23. They carried with them 33 county resolutions and a goal of electing Bill Wyatt, your 1954 president, to the State Board. Hays Sullivan, 1955 president, said yesterday, "I believe we accomplished every important objective." So, I say thanks and congratulations to those \vho attended and worked at the Convention. Both Bill Wyatt and state Vice- president Harold Ohlendorf served on the State Resolutions Committee before the convention. It was this committee's job to study resolutions from ah counties, consolidate them as briefly as possible and yeti ncludle all points presented from county groups. That committee worked three days and nights until 1:00 and 2:00 a.m. to prepare the resolutions so they could be presented to the voting delegate body. Pink bollworm One of the important objectives of the County Farm Bureau was to promote a state resolution asking the cooperation of all parties concerned in Arkansas' pink bollworm fight. It asked for a necessary state appropriation for the next two years for control work. Earlier opposition, primarily in southwest Arkansas, apparently understands the problems and dangers now and went along with the state resolutions as wrtiten. They earlier thought Eastern Arkansas was forcing undue hardship on them. One of the important paragraphE in the resolutions pleads with all farmers in Arkansas to start the practice of cotton stalk destruction the day you are through harvest. We will be asking and encouraging every farmer in Mississippi County to destroy your cotton stalks as quickly as possible. Farmers' Taxjpad Lightened The Internal Revenue Code was revised to permit farmers to charge off for income tax purposes the costs of certain soil and water conservation practices not heretofore deductible. This should be a substantial stimulus to conservation works. Previously such expenditures generally have been capitalized rather than deducted as current expenses. Under the new act fanners can count as current expenses their expenditures for soil and water conservation works such as leveling, grading, and terracing, contour furrowing, construction of diversion channels, drainage ditches and earthen dams, control and protection of water courses, outlets and ponds, eradication of brush and planting of windbreaks. right s made from a^PrinWcr head mounted on an old automobile, chassts.

That North Mississippi County has paid its final quota on the 4-H House at Fayettevilte? We appre- :iate all the good help and participation in making the benefit sup- pev a success so it could be paid. You may remember that the 4-H House is a dormitory at the University for outstanding 4-H members. The home demonstration club members of Arkansas have been working for about 15 years to get it paid for.

Fruit Cake This is the season for making fruit cakes and baked fruit cakes need to be made at least two weeks before eaten. They improve with age. Because these cakes keep so well, use a large recipe. There are many times to serve fruit cake during the holiday season. If there is any fruit cake loft after a month or so, put it in the freezer. Fruit cakes freeze well and can be enjoyed all year. Fruit cakes are always appropriate as gifts. They can be made any size; io increase the value of the gift, put them in attractive container. They can be baked in colorful tin boxes lined with waxed paper, loaf pans, or oven wear. Fruit cakes fire also used as wedding cakes. They may be the white fruit cake (Bride's Cake), or the dark Ivamuontil types. Slices given guests as they leave are usually the fruit cake type and are called the Groom's Cnke. These cakes are usually baked in loaf pans, sliced, and packed in wedding cake favor boxes. The boxes are trimmed with the wedding theme — while satin rib- bon and Hllies of the valley. The "no-bake" type of fruit cakes has become popular in the last few years. Graham crackers and vanilla wafers can be used instead of flour in these cakes. Use scissors to cut the fruit for the cake. Sizf of the pieces depends on individual preference. Seedless raisins are usually left whole, cherries cut in luilf. Watermelon rind prest-i'vcs may be used instead of citron. Other kinds of preserves may also be used. But, preserves should be well drained and dry In order to mix well. Fruit cakes should be baked In a slow oven — 250 degrees I'" 1 . If the family likes a very moist cuke, you may prefer to steam It. To store cnkcs, wrap in cloths soaked in fruit juice, then in waxed paper. Place them in a tightly covered container. An apple or an orange may be placed in the container to keep the cuke from drying out.
