A noon day luncheon at the Wells School west of Watson will feature an outstanding speaker in the person of Professor John Doneth of M.S.U. His topic will be "Agriculture Behind the Curtain." County Extension Director Andrew F. Bednar, asks local farmers to make every effort to participate in the Farm Management Tour. Hints to Rose Growers Given I Most varieties of roses can be ' propagated from stem cuttings i taken during the summer or, in I the fall. Stuart K. Swenson, Iron County agriculture agent, says the USE DAILY GLOBE WANT-ADS Sprayer Users Get Warning Don't use a sprayer for insecticides after you have used it for 2, 4-D. Disastrous results may occur unless the sprayer, has been properly cleaned, says Ron Doersch, agronomist at the University of Wisconsin. Small amounts of 2, 4-D left in the sprayer can severely damage crops or ornamentals, so it is vital that the sprayer be cleaned immediately after using If the same sprayer is used for two operations, follow these rules: First, drain all the spray material from the sprayer and rinse it with water. Then flush the tank, pump, hose and nozzl e s with hot water plus one cup of tri-sodium phosphate or one cup of household ammonia per 10 gallons of water. Let this mixture stand overnight in the tank. In the morning, drain the mixture and rinse the sprayer out with water. Never use 2, 4-D in a sprayer with a wooden tank, Doersch cautions. The 2, 4-D will soak into the wood and will be impossible to remove. the county. Iron and Florence count i e s evidently had the largest percentage gain in this type of construction from 1950 to 1960. If this ratio of growth c o n - tinues, the county could soon be ri the position of nearly doubling population during the summer months. A 1959 survey indicated that 75 million was spent annually in Wisconsin by cottage users. Wisconsin resident cott age users spent an average of $1,300 while non-residents spent about $1,500 annually. "All in all, it is quite a tidy sum and certainly these seasonal dwellings are a very important part of the state's recreation industry," said Kinney. "The population continues to grow and the demand for these facilities will no doubt continue to increase in the years ahead." with few rapid changes in pro- It took six months to prepare i cedure.

The sponsor is the Men's larden Clubs of America. The deadline for entering is Nov. 1. Last year's winner of a $25 U.S. Savings Bond was Hilda Thompson of Pheba, Miss., who grew a 98-pounder with the new (Burpee) "Big Max' pumpkin seed. There are 15 other prizes. The grower must send a pic- ;ure of the pumpkin or curcur- bit and himself and certification of weight to George Spader, executive secretary, Men's Garden Clubs of America, Morrisville, N. Y. Specialist Says, 'Use Milkers Right Away' Most dairymen prefer to start first-calf heifers off with the machine at the first milking, regardless of the extent of swelling present. "Handle the heifer gently and quietly from the start," advises Jack Little. Michigan State University dairy specialist of Chatham. "Sometimes it takes a little extra time and patience to do the job, but it will be worth it. If she frets quite a bit, have someone raise her tail while she is being milked. Do not let the machine on too long. It is important t o prepare the udder before applying the machine. If possible, employ machine strip ping rather than hand stripping." More dairymen are building their herds around high-producing first lactation heifers of known quality. Research i s backing up proof that they'll out-produce their herdmates in future lactations and they don't burn out. Good Gows Hike Income High producing dairy cows have a higher feed bill than their low-producing roommates. But don't let this comparison fool you. The high producers return more per hundred pounds of milk, reports Jack Litt 1 e , MSU Extension dairyman for the Upper Peninsula.
