They cross cultivated MO acres this year. They had Ui hoe Ihe cotton only one time as compared to two and three times normally and time ii:cuiircd for the hoein sUlerably less. The cotton had less vegetation, al picking lime than usual, ulso. The Clray brothers checked production on 11 six-acre pl^', .is the mum I question had been whether or not ! cross cultivation \vouUi reduce yields, and they picked Pi bull's per acre which was IjHtcr than average lor thai piece of land. Apparently the production was not reduced. The Gray brothers were so well satisfied thai they plan Jo cross 1 cultivate all their cotton ncxl year.

Milk is llie most nearly perfect food available. H makes up group four, milk and milk products, of the "Basic 7" food groups. Butter supplies thc needs for group seven. For proper growth an ; | development nnd best health, all cilndren under 16 years of aBe should cl-.'nk a! least one quart of milk daily and nil adults one pint daily. Two good dairy c ows. properly fed and cared for should furnish enough milk cheese and butter for llie average family. Families which cio not provide tins supply of milk at home wilt not be well fed or they will be forced to spend money for loot! At the present ->rice oi dairy products, this will in, 0 ,v the food budget out of line.
