"I firmly believe that a | KOocI general ruin in the next few [days would slow the innturiii^ of the cotton down and enable the young unopened liolls to make ri better stand." lie saitl. Elsewhere in the stale the severe drouth nnd high temperatures have burned up pastures, dried up watering places and withered feetl and cotton, according to tile weather and erop reporting scrviee. The one bright spot in the Ark- i ansa.s agricultural picture was in ' (he Southwest where recent heavy raines revived pastures, late hay nnri fectl crops. The service said cotton continues to open prematurely, nnd that! blooming has about .stopped in most ' parts of Arkansas. The heat has i caused much cotton to deteriorate. ! Many bolls are undersiy.ed. and I sheading has been heavv in some fields. Crop conditions at a glancei Rice is maturing rapidly, harvest is getting underway, and prospects continue favorable. Early corn is about mature. Late ! com and fall hay crops are prac- '• lically burned up except in South- i western counties where they responded to recent rains.
