PAOB TEN BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, APRIL 8, 1»BI RE VIEW-"FORECAST Maloch Says By D. V. MALOCI1 Mississippi County Agent The freeze caused heavy damage to Mississippi County farmers and other home owners. The heaviest damage was the wheat crop — the most hardy of the commercial grains grown in the county. More of the wheat had Jointed, therefore, more damage. Wheat will make growth at 39 to 40 degree average temperatures and oats and barley begin to grow at 45 degree average temperatures. Dr. Martin Nelson, a foianer head of the Agronomy Department at the University of Arkansas, says, "In my 40 years of observation at the Dntversltj' of Arkansas Experiment Stations, I remember only one spring freeze similar to this. It did little damage to small grain because of the small growth the grain had made." Cattle Program There are successful cattle demonstrations on a number of farms. The cow and calf programs are used to an advantage on the following South Mississippi County farms: K. C. Branch, Charles Friend, and E, B. Chiles, Pecan Point; C. J.

Clothing Dollar Managing nnd spending the clothing dollar Is .1 family nffnir For how much a family will spend for clothing varies considerably with the size of family income, ages of funiily members, family clothing standards, size of community, nnd the ability nl the homcmukcr to give home sewing n professional look. Dressing well on a limited income can be a family game once the family knows the niols. This game mny well stjirt wild u»> family member checking nnd mnk-, ing an inventory of clothing on hand. . Each family member should then make a tentative list of whatj it will take to complete his wardrobe. During n family council, eucli family member's clothing inventory nnd list of needs should be reviewed and given consideration: after which some satisfactory amount to be spent for clothing .should be decided upon. The total amount to be spent for clothing should be further discussed and each family member should help decide on the amount of money set up for their clothing expenditures. This discussion should be influenced largely uy basing wants on needs. Consider what is on hand nnd what is needed that is not on hand. Here arc some tips that will help families to stretch the clothing dollar: Buy according to your plan; assemble complete outfits ^"(kcep In mind items on hand, colors, etc.); select garments to serve for more than one purpose; use basic color scheme as backbone of wardrobe; study consumer education on buy- Ing rendymades and piece goods; and take care of clothing.
