FACE TEN BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, APRIL II, 1M« REVIEW -FORECAST On Missco Farms •7 KEITH BILBBEJ C*M*T AfMl Art You There? Tl» reason that I ask, statistics indicate that about 50 percent of Ox farms in Mississippi County hu changed ownership since 1948. I thought maybe you were one (hit had sold out. The Arkansas-Missouri Dinners Atsociatlon is currently sponsoring Mid printing a ne« landownership map and book that will give current addresses of landowners In Mississippi County. The indicated change in farm ownership since 1948 is tremendous, and much above the national average, I believe. I Slipped Again When I make a mistake In this column you sure do t«!I me about it don't you? That's the way I like it. Last week I announced that some Dorman and Lee soybeans, breeders seed were available through the Rice Branch Experiment Station, Stuttgart, Mississippi. I know of one farmer that mailed hie order for some of the seed to Mississippi. My apologies. The correct address, of course Is Rice Branch Experiment Station, Stutt- gart, Arkansas. Land Preparation There are lot of different opinions about what is good seedbed preparation. It seems to me there are an increased number of scientists and research people however who are indicating that some farmers are doing entirely too much land preparation. George Hale, Burdette plant breeder, gave a thoroughly interesting program to the Burdette Agriculture Club last Monday night. One of the things he Indicated by color slides and later said, to me was that many farmers worked their land too much and destroyed the structure of the soil. Vernon C. Jamison with the D.S.D.A. was one of the speakers at one of the recent irrigation schools In Blythevllle for technical people, dealers, etc. Among other things he said, "The tendency usually is to overwork soils in preparing seed beds. Cultivation should be kept to a lOinimum." I will always remember Bill Meeks' statement on the subject. Mr. Meeks, until death, was in Now- CLEANER-BALDWIN combine service at your Allis'Chalmers Dealer True Original Parts factory-Trained Mechanics Now you can get the same complete service for your GLEANER-BALDWIN combine that ALL-CHOP Harvester owners have been receiving for years.

Railroad St. 3-4567 & 3-16G2 charge of all mechanization research on the Federal Station at Stoneville, Miss. He said, "Nearly everybody spends too much money and labor for land preparation. The crop ought to he roughed in a little more and then maybe cultivated a little better after the crop comes up." The International Harvester news letter this week quotes R, L. Cook, specialist with Michigan State University, as advocating minimum seedbed preparation. He states, "A firm and well packed seedbed i& good but with corn ft applies only to the soil just above, below, and around the seed — perhaps no more than an Inch or two in all directions from the seed. "That's so you can get a good germination. Roots on the other hand [unction better In loose soil. "Aeration is more complete and water penerates the soil more rapidly when a loose Boll condition exists." It appears that when some people disk their land every few days, when the sun shines, is doing nothing, more than destroying the crumbly structure that Is desirable. Then when it rains the soil will seal much quicker and will absorb lots less moisture. Calf hood Vaccination Most everybody knows that if you are going to maintain a cattle herd you have either got to control bangs -disease or sooner or later you will go out of business. In recent years calfhood vaccination has made the control of bangs disease a possible and practical matter. The state and federal government cooperate financially In sending a vacclnator around to all Arkansas counties every few months. William Henson. the vaccinator for this county, will, be here about May I. Let us know ir you have any heifers that you want vaccinated at this time. If you. nre not already in this vaccination prognim and are interested in It we will be glad to discuss it with you. Census Data According to the 1954 agriculture census 171,736 acres of cotton was fertilized In all of Mississippi County. The total cotton acreage In the county wasn't much bigger than that. Are you one of the few left who doesn't believe in the use of fer- tiliser? The census also reveals thai 5,190 Mississippi County farms were wired for electricity by 1054. That's one of the greatest revolutionary changes that has occurred my lifetime. Would you pause and think how wonderful electricity and all ,of Its services arc for our thousands of 'arm families, Tlien you might like to Imagine lie tremendous expansion in busi- less. snles of refrigerators, freezers, stoves, fans, water pumps, etc. I Like Cotton You know, 1 don't believe In anybody buying a cotton fabric or jroduct instead of some synthetic ust because we are living In n cotton county. When a synthetic fiber can do i better job than a cotton fiber, .hen I am in favor of Ihe change. The point I'm mad about is thnt cotton is highly superior for most of the fabric requirements, yet nany Americans buy something other than cotton because they enow no better or because you laven't advertised the qualities of cotton, Not long ago a large sales agency recorded 10,000 customer com- jlaints over a considerable period of time, on nny and all fabrics they sold. The5 r report trm t of the complaints on all different .kinds of ibers, cotton received 21 percent of the complaints and the niyon ind oilier synthetics received 54 jerccnl. of the complaints. The olh- er complaints were on wool, linen and silk. This is further revealing when F ou realize that of the total fabric sales about 70 percent was cotton and the synthetic sales were about 20 percent. T doubt if I am doing any good, so goodbye. Something < to Think About Pemiscot Notes By W. F. Jamtfr Pemiscot County Agent Bj GERTRUDE B nOLOWAM Ctunty H«nte Dem castration AC ml Leachville Sister The Leachville Home Demonstration Club has outgrown its .club house and can only meet In homes with very large living rooms. There are 50 members and usually from 40 to 50 are present at each meeting. This club doesn't have to have a membership drive to get members. People want to join because It is active and has worthwhile projects. The newest .project that , the Leachville Home Demonstration Club has sponsored is the organization of another home demonstration club In Leachville. The club was organized this week. There were 34 members enrolled. The older club will act as a big sister in helping the new one get started and to teach them some projects that their club has already learned. Naional II. D. Celebration As part of the National Home Demonstration Week celebration, the H. D. clubs in North Missis- s,lpp County .have planned a trip to Memphis next Tuesday, April 17th, to attend the Home Show and also visit the Memphis Furniture Manufacturing Company. We believe the trip will be very valuable In the H. D. program since home furnishings is a major project in home demonstration work tills year. Those in the Blythcville area planning to make the trip and want to travel with the other cars should meet in front of the court house between 6:45 and 7:00 o'clock. The group plans to eat in Brit- ling's cafeteria at noon. Leader Training A leader training meeting for the home furnishings leaders will be held at the fairground Thursday, i April 19th. Miss Sue Marshall, Home Furnishings Specialist, will conduct the meeting. Workshop An all-day county-wide workshop on making draperies, curtains and* bedspread will be held at the fairground Friday, April 20th. Miss Sue Marshall will conduct the meeting. Insect Control Worms offer fierce competition to gardeners for the cabbage crop. Severn! kinds of worms may make lace work out of cabbage plants early In the season, but most of the damage is done by the cabbage worm and the cnbbage looper. The cabbnge worm Is dark velvety green. The cnbbage looper is a whitish-green measuring worm. Broccoli, cauliflower, collards and reltiled plnnts tire also attacked by these worms. Spraying or dusting with lead arsenate, calcium arseiifilc or DDT gives good control of the worms. For spraying use one ounce of lead arsenrite or !'•; ounces of 50 percent wcttnblc DDT in one gallon of water, plus n wetting ngent to make the spray stay on the leaves. For u wetting agent, use one .in.- blespoonful of yellow laundry soap or one level tcaspoonful of soybean flour, or one-half pint of skim milk, to one gallon of spray mixture. For dusting, calcium arsenate or lend arsenate is used straight. DDT can be used as a five or 10 i percent dust. Lead and calcium arsenates and DDT are poisonous and should not be used on cnbbage within two weeks of harvest. If heavy spraying or dusting is done when worms attack small plants, it usually will not be necessary to treat plants within two \ of harvest. If it becomes necesMiry to treat, cabbage for worm control within I two weeks pf harvest, rotenone' should be used. Rotenonc is nonpoisonous. Tt will kill aphids (plant lice) as well as worms.

Ph. 3-6857 Raise Income In '56 If you have not already carefully explored possibilities tor reducing farm operating cost* In 1956 It atill Isn't too late. Let's explore possibilities In cotton production for a moment. Beds of irregular height or width can reduce your yield and therefore increase your cost per pound of lint. Precision then Is a must for your cotton rows. If you have a two row picker remember that your rows need to be 40 inches apart. Your early planted cotton that grows off well from the start will produce more than your late planted cotton. "Too early" planting, however, can result hi your loss of stand demanding a replant or bad weather can keep you from proper cultivation resulting In high chopping tabling three-fourths of one percent of rotenone is preferred. If this strength cannot be had, a dust containing one half of one percent of rotenone can be used. Sausage in Peaches Sausage Balls in Peach Halves 1 pound sausage meat 1 tablespoon grated onion ',-j cup bread crumbs 1 teaspoon salt '/4 teaspoon pepper 8 canned peach halves 32 cloves (optional) Mix sausage, onion, crumbs, salt mid pepper; shape into eight balls. Arrange peaches, cut side up, in baking dish. Stud edges of each peach half with 4 cloves. Arrange sausage balls in peaches. Bake 40 minutes at 350 degrees F. or until sausage is well browned and no trace of pink remains. Baste twice during baking. 4 servings. (Smaller balls require less baking.) "I costs. A period of 24 days in late April and early May with May 1st, In the middle Is considered a good period for cotton planting In Pemiscot County. Planting only pure seed of a proven variety with known germination at 40 to 50 pound rate Is believed to give you greater assurance of a stand. If you cross plow you can cut chopping costs in half. Your use of pre -emergence sprays to control weeds In cotton has been proved as a means of cutting chopping costs but the practice has not been very widely adopted. By cultivating shallow only when necessary for weed control you can reduce power costs and allow increased production on .your farm. Your application of adequate plant food (fertilizers) certainly is one way of cutting costs per lint pound of cotton produced. It costs no more to cultivate 21? bale cotton than It does to cultivate ',£ bal Cut Machinery Costs I was In a machinery dealer place last week when he said to new tractor purchaser. "Now don fail to service your air cleaner reg ularly. "The air cleaner on your old trac tor had two inches of dirt in it. The directions for caring for you tractors and other new farm equip ment ar contained In manuals fur nished with them. If you are not clear about th meaning of operations described se your service man. The air cleaner of a traoto which strains dirt and trash from the air passing into the cylinder is one of the most neglected item about a tractor. The useful life o your tractor could be reduced 50 by failure to service the air cleane properly.
