PAGE SIX BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 1955 RE1/IEW ™ FORECAST On Missco Farms By KEITH BILBREY, County Agent Soybean Hearing: I know at least six people in Mississippi County Who are preparing to make testimony at the soybean hearing in Memphis next Monday. They are Bill Wyatt, Blytheville; Hays Sullivan and George Hale, Burdette- Jerry Hayes Wilson; John Stevens, Dell; and Paul Hughes, BJytheville. Surely I have said enough to prove to you that these hearings are important to the Mid-South. If you can get away from home next Monday, I would suggest that you attend the hearing and see what goes on. Present an opinion of your own if you care to. You can present it in writing by addressing it to the Secretary of Agriculture, or you can make a public statement if you prefer. Farm Bureau Membership Drive , i hope every farmer in Mississippi County fully realizes that the county Farm Bureau is now renewing the membership for 1955. There are volunteer membership workers in all communities. Why wait on them to find you or look you up? If you are going to support the Farm Bureau then why not make it a special point to pay your membership this week.? Charlie Rose of Roseland put on his annual barbecue last Monday for the volunteer membership workers. . I have heard an occassional inquiry about that meeting so I would like to tell the public that Mr. Rose has never charged the Mississippi County Farm Bureau one penny, in any year, for his barbecue feed. It has been his contribution to the people who are willing to give their time, their efforts, gasoline expense, etc., to help build an organization in Mississippi County that would truly be useful to all of U£. In other words, if you would like to attend the barbecue at the kickoff meeting next year all you have to do Is volunteer some effort on your part to solicit Farm Bureau memberships, Bangs Vaccination I have a letter from Mr. Henson stating that he will be in North Mis-, sissippi County the last week In February to do bangs calfhood vaccination. In other words, all farmers that are staying in the cattle business and want to keep bangs disease out of their herd can now have their heifer calves vaccinated between 6 and 12 months of age and it should give them protection for life. The following people have already requested that their calves be vaccinated this month: L. V. Waddell, Blackwater; T. N. Bennett, Lost Cane; M. J. Koehler Earl Magers, and M. K. Brownlee, Dell; Richard Rose, Roseland; Alex Curtis, Manila. If you have heifer calves between 6 and 12 months of age that you would like to have vaccinated let me know very soon so that I may include you in the vaccination schedule. As you know this vaccination work Is free to you. It is an honest and sincere attempt on the part of your state government and federal government cooperating to stamp out the dreaded bangs disease in Arkansas. If you have older cattle that you want tested to see if they are free of bangs disease then you should let me know and I will arrange for one of the local veterinarians' Dr. Jerome or Dr. Miles, to make the test for you. These tests are also free but I need . the cooperation of several people in 1 the same community at the same jtime in order to justify requesting these busy men to do this work. Sam Pincher at Manila has 36 head of old heifers that he wanus tested for bangs in March. Are there other folks in or around Manila who would like to have testing work done at the same time? if so, let me know now. Social Security , Many farmers are asking for ad- jditional information on Social Security and its requirements. Farm Bureau officers have said we must have a county meeting at which time Social Security will be discussed • thoroughly in order to help our farm ' people. I Well, we'll do just that. I am : cooperating with Hays Sullivan, . President of the Farm Bureau, and between us I hope to plan a meeting i in North Mississippi County this ' month at which time all of your 'questions may be answered on Social Security. Farm Bureau members will be no- i tified by mail when the meeting has been arranged. Others that are i not on the Farm Bureau mailing list i will have to watch the papers for the announcement of this meeting. Farm Records I spent a week at the Arkansas State College at Jonesboro recently, studying farm and home development. I will have to admit that I learned quite a bit about the subject. Among many other things they discussed farm records and the needs for same. Among other reasons you should keep farm records. (1) Aid In settling estates. (2) As a basis of settlement bet-, ween landlord and tenant. (3) Farm records serve as credit statements. (4) They are a guide for changing enterprises. (5) They give a historical performance of the farm. ("6) They are a basis for needs and planning the farm operation. (7) They are a basis for preparing your income tax; and • (8) They will now be a basis for settlement of Social Security records. The suggestion was made that you first decide what you want a record to do for you then, keep as simple a farm record as will do your Job. Pink Bolhvorm Pink bollworms were recently j found in gin trash in Osage County, Oklahoma Osage County borders on the Kansas state line. It is the northern branch of cotton production at about the same latitude as Poplar Bluff, Mo. Does that tell you whether or not pink bollworm might live and do damage this far north?

Otherwise, the milker is liable to get a hefty hoof in the chin. But here's a complacent cow that just doesn't give a darn. It's owned by Dan Kauth, of Trescott. Kan., who is now with the U. S. Army in Germany. "Maggie" was trained to be an ambidextrous milker this summer. Here, Judy and Jerry Kauth are seen doubling up on the milking chores. Neor/y 1,000 Farmers At Annual Event To keep slices of apple from turning brown, put them in cold, slightly salted water until ready to use . Just short of 1,000 persons were on hand this week when Missco Implement 'Co., held its annual John Deere open house. The crowd ate 2,000 sandwiches and drank 51 cases of drinks, Harvey Parrish, Missco manager, reported. Fred Hurras of Steele won top honors in the power steering rodeo. R. D. Nash, of a Blytheville route, took second place. The men were required to drive over a tractor "obstacle course" using only one finger. Prior to lunch, the group attended a film showing at the Roxy Theater. Mr. Parrish said the .event attracted the largest crowd in the history of the annual affair. Pemiscot Notes By VV. F. James; Pemiscot County Agent It you're going to put out any shade trees this spring, now's a good time to do it. First thing you know, buds will begin to swell and it'll be getting too late. You may be among those who'd like to set out some trees around your place. The first thing to do is locate the proper planting site. Shade trees need to be planted around the edge of the lawn — never in a straight row. They should not be planted so as to cut,off the view of the front or from the front of the home. They need to be planted far enough away from the house so limbs will not hang over the roof. Trees are the frame for the picture of the home. They can be located so as to shield the home from the extreme heat of the sun and at the same time allow the sun to reach most parts of the house at some time during the day. Dig the hole big enough and deep enough to receive the roots of the tree you're moving. There should be plenty of room to spread the roots out as they were originally. In digging out the tree, trench around it first to locate main roots then remove the dirt carefully. Get as much of the tap root as you can. Cover the fine roots with wet sack. If these dry out a resin is formed that blocks absorption of moisture and plant food. In placing tree in the hole take Phi Beta Kappa, the scholastic honorary society, was founded in 1776 at William and Mary College. Willininsburg, Vfl Pour hot salt water through -sinks, drains and tubs once or iwice a week to keep them free of grease and odors. plenty of time to spread the roots in bottom. Put in a small amount of dirt and pack it in firmly against roots. Water it if you can so the fine j roots are not hanging out in an air pocket but have firm contact with the soil. Now fill in the Jiole and tramp. The tree should not be shallower nor 'deeper than it was originally. Now brace the tree with three guy wires use rubber hose over the wires that contact the tree. After the tree has been set a year the guy wires can usually be j removed. Plan to water the new j set tree throughout the first sum- j mer. - ] However, do not water too often. ! A good soak every 10 days is best. ! 4-^1 Club Organized at Ilayward A new 4-H Club with 43 members. was organized last week at the j Hay ward School by the County Ex- i tension staff.
