Maybe this \vill help you to un•derstaud: A 50 bushel corn crop will use 83 pounds of nitrogen. A 30 bushel wheat crop on tlie other hand will use only 52 pounds of nitrogen. A cotton crop producing 500 pounds o! lint per acre will use 81 pounds of nitrogen. On the other hand a 25 bushel soybean crop uses 88 pounds of nitrogen. The difference there is that soybeans, when properly inoculated, draw most of their np- trogen requirements from the air.

So on a potash deficient three years of alfalfa may remove co so much psitish that the following tton crop might suffer. In the vegetable field, root crops are generally heavy feeders on potash. For instance a 200 bushel irish potato crop used 65 pounds of pot- On the other hand str'awbsrrtes only require 12 pounds of potash. That should help explain the reason you need to know what you are doing bclore fertilizing a garden. Cotton Situation The consumption of cotton per n in the United States during good, No. 9, Shady Grove, Flat Lake, jj j Lone Oak,.Fairview, Gosnell, Armol, Elackwater and Boynton. The leaders from these clubs will perso 1954 declined to 25.4 pounds, 2,5 pounds below 1953 and the lowest since 1938. The previous post World War II low occurred in 1949 when 25.7 pounds per capita were consumed. Because of the increase in population, however, the total amount of cotton consumed in 1954 was about 590 thousand (480 pounds net weight) bales above 1949. Consumption of all fibers declined and cotton consumption in 1954 comprised about 68.5 percent of total textile The supply of cotton in the U.S. during 1954-55 is estimated at about 23.5 million bales. This includes a 1954 crop of about 13.6 million bales, a starting carryover of more than S.7 million, and estimated imports of slightly more than 0.1 million. Tliis is the largest supply since the 24.6 million bales of 1939-40. Outlook If the farmers in America follow their planting intentions the soybean acreage will be increased in the neighborhood of 7 percent over 1954. Arkansas watermelon producers indicated iheir acreage will be 10%, above the past five year average, i Observers are expecting an overproduction and lower prices on melons unless a better than aver- • age promotion program is put on. I Briefs The Manila irrigation field day give demonstrations on party foods at their April meeting and will give demonstrations on oven, meals at their July meetings. Accessories This is the second of two articles on clothing accessories. Last week I discussed hats and jewelry. Today I will give trends for purses, hose and gloves. Designers this season have placed new emphasis on the slimmer lines in purses. Frame bags or boxy ones lean toward the slimmer line. The moderate size purses seems to predominate. Emphasis this season is also being placed on top opening frame bags with one or two very narrow handles. The tendency toward purses made on longer, shallower lines contributes to the slimmer look. Beige to brown are the leading leather colors. However navy s\nd many pastel colors in leather are also being shown. Gold tipped black patent purses are also very fashionable this season. There is no question about the color of hose being selected this spring to blend with the dress or suit to give the elongated line. The shortie type glove, cuffed below the wrist bone, remains the leading length for spring. Fashion i.s also turning attention to the little longer than short glove. This length Is featured in .slim straight cut gloves for the new narrow look. Washable Shrinkage resistant wools are beginning to appear on the market.

It's Time To Prune early blooming shrubs such USDA Designs $10,000 Home for Farm Family By KENNETH O. G1LMORE NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) — For less than $10,000 a young farm couple can now build a smavt-lbokiug yet practical modern home. The Department of Agriculture has designed and put up a spiffy, split-level fa rmhouse at its research center In Beltsville, Md. It is the first time they have developed and constructed this type of a low cost structure. Estimated to sell for $9800; including heating system, refrigerator, and range, the nattily styled brick-clap board home is particularly adapted for a growing family. The unit is expansible and can be built in two installments, much the same as three previous homes planned by the department's agricultural engineering and home economics research branches.

A gray-green wall between the kitchen and the dining alcove has a window opening through which meals can be served. This also makes it possible for the little lady to chat with a guest, if she wishes, as she prepares dinner. FOR MOKE INFORMATION on this farm home, write the Office of Information, Agriculture Department, Washington 25, D. C-, and ask for Circular L-376. They'll send you free material which tells how to order drafts uf the house. "In drawing: up the plans for this house," says Mrs. Lenore Thye, housing specialist, "we fused each area and space lor more than one a'ctivily. Thus the dining room can be used for eating, studying and sewing." This i.s accomplished by a special light that can be lowered when the children want to do their homework, or raised for meals. Made of H plastic material, it diffuses the light in a restful and non-glaring fashion. The ceiling is raftered and fin- .shed in a sniy "driftwood" color. The floors consist of reddish-brown asphalt tiles which are laid directly over the heating system. Numerous windows provide ample lighting from the outside. A i urge, nine-sectioned picture window affords a nice view from the front of the house. The three lower panes open at the bottom for ventilation.
