They an hurt you, particularly on the oYnng coton that needs every day tonseed oil and oleo manufacturers shifted co more soybean oil. That helped to keep the soybean price up 'last year. The support price on cot ' tonseed has been lowered for the 1S53 crop. That all adds up to a lower soybean price, in my opinion, so, if you agree, get your storage facilities lined up for a. government loan on your soybean crop. You Need Some Oil? The government, now owns enough cottonseed oil to make one billion pounds of margarine. That is five times as much as present government butter stocks.

This compares with a national reduction of 17.5 percent below the 1952 planted acreage and 10.2 per- cc"* below this year's planted acre- Hardin cited that the, Arkansas quota would call for the. lowest, percentage below the 1952 planted acreage of any of the nation's cotton growing states. The plan presented to the Agricultural Committees of the House and Senate of the National Congress by the board of the American Farm Bureau provides: (1) that a minimum national acreage allotment or 21.5 million acres be established for 1954; (2i that no state allotment be cut more than 27.5 percent from its 1952 acreage; <3> that no state ,ng ceremonies; Betty Webb gave ( i demonstration on a profitable The classes are arranged so that [hobby.

South Highway 61 Blyrheville &tfmz JOHN DEERE Dealer/** QUALITY FARM EQUIPMENT Drouth Still On In South Missouri COLUMBIA, Mo.—The drouth continues in many south Missouri counties. County agents this week reported spotted showers in some counties, but few reported enough rain to alleviate a serious situation. Virgil Sapp of Jasper County said two to three inches bt moisture over the county had helped corn though it was stunted to some extent. Soybeans are not hurt but farmers in the area will be extremely short of hay, Sapp believes. But a short distance east in Greene County, Agent Clyde Clubb reports the crop situation is serious with no rain. Pastures are gone and corn is firing, still there is little or no general liquidation of livestock. Most selling has been more of a thorough culling of cows than a liquidation. Most agents say folks are holding onto livestock as long as possible in the hope -at rain. A number of South Missouri counties report small showers, many spotted over the area. These have done little in the way of stimulating crops but do offer the hope of additional moisture. Such is the case in Benton County where O, V. Singleton reports one-fourth to three- fourths inch scattered showers. Pastures are about gone hut corn still looks fairly good. Soybeans are poor to fair. This is about the general situation in Southwest Missouri. However, in the extreme eastern section, Gerald Kerr reports that Ste. Oenevleve has had moisture. Pastures could stand more rain but are looking Rood. And In North Missouri the story Is pretty much the same a.s 1952, Crops for the most part are looking good with many counties reporting no drouth. Others need ruin but none with the exception of » few rivrr bordering counties >re really lufferlnc.
