FRIDAY, APRIL 6, 1956 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PACK SFVEN REVIEW*" FORECAST On Missco Farms By KEITfl BILBREV Count? More Ferliliier Sent The oldest experiment station fer- tilizir plots in the United States are the world famous Morrow Plot* on the University o! Illinois campus. For 79 long years they hHve grown corn continuously on one of these plots, using no fertilizer of any kind, and removing all residues (corn stalks' each year. Would proper application of fertilizer make decent corn yields after land had been treated that way for 79 years? In 1955 one-half of the plots were fertilized with lime, nitrogen, phosphorus, and potash. The fertilized part of the area produced 86 bushels of corn per acre. The unfertilized part was down to 36 bushels per acre, even under the ideal growing conditions of last year. Other plots that had carried certain rotations and been fertilized for 79 years produced from 97 to 107 bushel« per acre. Can You Grow Corn? Harry W. Wellhausen, Extension Agronomist In Little Rock, says, "Many Arkansas farmers can double corn yields by adopting a combination of six practices already proven successful in producing high yields at less cost per bushel in money and labor. j "These six practices are, (1) proper land selection, (2) u«e of idap- ted hyblrds, i3> good seedbed preparation, (4) proper spacing, (5) adequate fertilization, and (6) shallow cultivation."

A Ginners School Because cotton i* in serious trouble with competing libers, it is lensible to me that we do everything we can to maintian the quality and the valuable characteristics of cotton, as it is produced in the field One of the most important phases of quality production Is the ginning process. Mr. Maloch. county agent at Osceola, has arranged a ginner school for Mississippi County for Tuesday afternoon, April 10. The meeting will be held in the court room, and will start at 1:30. The federal gin research people from the Stoneviile, Miss, laboratory will be the speakers, and available for questioning. Surely all sinners will want one or more. representatives at that school. North Mississippi County farmers are welcome to that meeting in the same way that South Mississippi County farmers were welcome to the recent soybean mee. ting in Blytheville. These meetings represent joint effort, and cooperation with the Mississippi County Farm Bureau and Agricultural Planning Committees. Miftcellaneout SI ELLIS. JR. at Midway and JOHN STEVENS, JR. at Dell will plant a small acreage of Thimet treated Delta Pine cotton seed. Thimet is a chemical treatment that works as a systemic and prevents insect damage lor four to six week after > cotton comes up. The material is still in the experimental stage and we would not recommend anyone planting very much of an acreage this year. M. J. KOEHLER will plant an early maturing soybean on the ends of his cotton-rows. The ioybeans will be combined before cotton harvest, then there will be ample room for turning cotton pickers around on the end without knocking cotton on the ground. MARK BRYLES.

Cakes in Freezer Don't blame the' freezer if your favorite cake goes bad after short period in the deep freezer. Although freezing is recommended as a convenient way to preserve cakes, which are among; the most perishable baked products, freezing experts recommend that cake recipes be used which were especially developed for freezing. Oregon State College experimenters found that the kind of fat used affect* flavor, moisture and freshness of cakes baked and frozen. Frozen chocolate cakes containing some butter are superior to those made with lard or vegetable shortening alone. Most satisfactory was a combination of butter and vegetable shortening. Baked cakes may tw frozen in aluminum or .paper baking pans then closely wrapped with moisture-vapor-proof wrapping or aluminum foil. Or, they may be removed from pans and wrapped. So that it won't be crushed In the freezer, the cake may be put in a box. For tighter wrapping, the cake can be removed from pan and put on flat metal surface. Then put the cake and pan into a plastic freezer bag or box to freeze. The frozen cake can be tightly wrapped in aluminum foil or other vapor - moisture - proof wrap for storage at 0 degrees F. Tests showed that chocolate cake should not be stored longer than four months »t zero degrees F. Butter cukes as well us lard cakes acquire a rancid flavor if kept as long as six months. Pork When you buy bacon, look for that which has clear white fat and an even distribution of lean. Allow one-half pound for four people, or about two strips for each person. Center cuts of ham have the lesat bone but usually cost a little more than the butt or shank cuts. Ham and bacon are favorite meats for berakfast; although bacon is largely fat, it is prized for flavor. Slash the edges of ham to prevent curling when cooking. Start both bacon and ham to cooking in a cool frying pan. Keep the flame low, turn frequently, and drain off the fat as it collects. Bacon can be stored In the refrigerator for three or four weeks, but it is best if used within ten days. Sausages are thrifty buys at any time. They carry no bone or waste; and if cooked correctely, there is little' shrinkage. Pure pork sausages may be fresh or cured. There are "fancy" sausages, too — dry and semidry. Pork sausages should be cooked well done. Cook slowly by broiling or frying until no pink color remains. To prevent shrinkage, add a small amount of water to the frying pan and cook covered for about five minutes. Drain off any re- LEE SOYBEANS Registered, Certified and Non-Certified Lee Seed Soybeans.

Main Blytheville, Ark. Ph. 3-6857 This Business of Farming By II. H. CARTER Associate County Agent How do gasoline and LP gas 15 percent for evaporation losses tractors compare in economy of and waste, No attempt was made to evaluate pilferage losses of gasoline, a practical consideration on operation? Here are some figures and Information for your consideration. Average fuel consumption In gallons per hour is about 25 percent higher lor LP gas than for.gaso- line. This figure Is based on results secured in the Nebraska Tractor.Tests for a representative group of tractors under varying many farms.) In a Missouri study, oil cost was estimated at 25 cents per 10-hour day on gasoline tractors and 15 cents on LP Qas tractors, a saving of 10 cents per day (40 percent). In the same study, repairs were losas. ... 4 . cost of both gasoline and LP trac- Farfners in the county are pres- ^ pLUS 4 » ham gf gn _ enty paying_ about 11 cents Pefjnual use for B asoline tractors and gallon for LP gas. Storage tanks i « m some stations, are movided ference WQuM (mount ^ ^ ^^ in repairs of about 10 cents epr it little or no cost to the farmer. Current price for gasoline is approximately 24 to 25 cents per gallon. If advantage , is taken of gas tax refund available on farm used gas (4V2 cents on state tax and 2 cents Federal tax), gasoline costj day for LP tractors. Based on these figures, the combined fuel, oil and repair savings for LP gas tractors would approximate $1.05, $1.35, and $1.65 per at current prices will amount to 10-hour day respectively for the approximately 18 cents. \ 2. 3. »n1.4-plow tractors. (In terms Figuring LP gas at 11 cents and gasoline at 18. cents, an hourly fuel consumption figures from the Nebraska Tractor Tests, LP gas would result in an average fuel saying over gasoline of np- p.roximat«ly 85 cents per 10-hour day for a 2-plow tractor, $1.15 for a 3-plow tractor, »nd J1.45 for > 4-plow tractor.(Daily fuel consumption rates used were n, 23, 29. and 35 gallons of gasoline and 21, 28, 35,'and 42 gallons of LP gas' respectively for the 2-, 3-, and 4-plow tractors. The gasoline consumption figures include an Increased allowance of| .. maximum" horsepower, the above size tractors would average about 25, 33 and 43 HP.) . At Uiese daily savings, approximately 95., 74. and 60 10-hour days of operation would' be required respectively for a 2-plow, 3-plow, and 4-plow tractor to effect a saving of $100. The first cost of LP gas tractors generally runs from $200 to $400 above that of gasoline tractors. To pay the extra appreciation and Interest cost oh the higher costing LP tractor would require an annual daily use of approximately 10 days for each $100 higher Investment for the S and 4-plow site LP tractor. (This assumes depreciation at 12'/j percent per year and an annual Interest charge on the Investment of 5 percent on one- half the first cost.) At current differences in prices between LP and gasoline tractors and at the savings set forth above, tractors should be used at least 400 to 500 hours per year to show any real saving over gasoline. Advantages It Dliadvantaret Advantages often given for LP gas as a tractor, fuel are: 1. Clean burning Minimum engine deposits and oil contamination. 2. Long life engine. 3. More lugging ability. 4. Smooth engine performance. Disadvantages.often given are: 1. Converted engines often low in efficiency. This depends, in part at least, upon the extent to which the recommended changes are made in converting to LP gas, and also upon the condition and characteristics of the tractor being converted. 2. Carburetor cannot always be adjusted without special instruments. 3. Hard starting In cold weather. Many LP gas operators have reported this as uo problem, however. 4. Fills slowly. Any real difficulty here generally Involves Improper mechanical functioning that can be remedied. Youngster Gets Mommie Ticket ALBUQUERQUE, N. M.
