FRIDAY, JULY IT, 1958 BI.YTHEVII.LE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE XTCT REVIEW*" FORECAST lovernor to Push Request : or Aid to All Counties By HAROLD HART Associated Press Staff Writer .tiTTLE ROCK ^>—urougiu aid f r all of Arkansas. That is the be- lef and aim of Gov. Cherry and Jie governor says he will push hi-s pquest to the federal government. I Thirty - five Arkansas counties lere so designated by D. S. Depart- |ient of Agriculture. It is difficult ) see why 12 counties which origi- ' requested drought-designation by the governor were turned down by Washington. Virtually all of the « affected counties arc roughly all in the same are and conditions tn one would be similar to those in nil (lie other counties. Cherry says he wants the situation resurveyed. There is this to say . . . The drought was so widespread in the Southwest that the govern- nient disaster aid program must necessarily carry a tremendous financial burden. Missouri, for example, . wants 58 of her southern counties included in the aid program. The Loans are made available to qualified borrowers who can't get credit elsewhere, but can be depended upon to pay back the money. On Missco Farms County Aient Beltb i.

For control of aphids. use Bengene Hexachloride, commonly known as DDT or toxaphene will generally make them worse. Flea Hopper In flea r eek. Be How have the rains helped the crops? The Federal-State Crop Reporting Service said this week that recent showers have greatly improved the farm outlook over much of Arkansas. Rain helped cotton, but it also brought insects. The infestation was reported light to moderate generally but heavy in Clay, Comvay, Ashley and Lincoln counties. The agency says, however, that much early corn was too far gone to be helped by the rains. The rains did help late corn. Most early sown rice is making good growth, but ;?nds are poor in many fields of late rice. More rain is needed for pastures to show pronounced improvement. Fall oats are returning good yields in various counties. One Sebastian County, farmer, Grady Smith, reported 300 bushels of oats from three acres. Wheeler R. Perkins, agronomist with the Agricultural Extension Service, says yields in Chicot County ran from 50 to 70 bushels on most farms. Frank Miller of Harmony Mountain in Van Buren County produced 70 bushels of Arkwin oats per acre and Dick Harris of Berryville in Carroll County got 60 bushels to the acre from Arkwin. I Those farmers variously ettnbut- | ed their good yields to use of residual fertilizer, cultivating land during summer to control weeds andi top dressing oats with nitrogen. | SIDELIGHTS: As of July 1, Mis-| souri had 515,000 acres of cotton in cultivation. . . L. S. Hall & Sons of Turner tn Phillips County irrigate 500 acres of cotton by means of a half mile of pipe with sprinkler heads and three ten-inch wells to supply the water . . . the 17th annual poultry selection school was held this week at the University of Arkansas in Fayettevllle.
