Con You Tell Otw BlgfrerT This month's Farm Journal carries a good article "See what Happened since Farm Journal First Told You About Weeding the GMse." They claim that their nr- Ifcle, "3-4-D Oftif" In their March 1950 Issue was the first such article ever written on the subject. There is plenty of room for art-u- ment. I remember reading about you folks In Mississippi County using geese In cotton fields Ions before I came here and that's been over elBht years a(?o. The Journal went on to say how different people had used geese after reading their article, They did us one better, though. They loM how Rusty Kendrlcic or Marlcopa County, Arizona was using portable Held light,-; so the geese woulrt work nt night. Boy, wh»l an Irlen.

Plots with fertilizer, pot-ish plots, 6-8-12 plots, manure, etc.. all averaged about 40 percent wilted plant*. Nitrogen Boyi Will Praise This In spite of the- wilt figures, nitrogen plots made decldely the most cotton this year. As an example the. four plots receiving 200 pounds of ammonium nitrate averaged 1.888 pounds of seed cotton. The checks with no fertilizer produced 1,303 pounds. Phosphrous alone averaged 1,133 pounds nnd muriate of potash alone produced 1,05!) pounds of seed cotton per acre. Four hundred pounds of 8-8-12 plots only averaged 1,583 lounds.

Publishes Booklet on Farm Housing Survey FAYBTTEVILLE, Ark, - Publication of a bulletin on "Farm Housing In (he South," which includes the result* of a study ol homing conditions In seven Southeastern states, was announced recently by the University ol Arkansas College ol Agriculture. The fourteenth In s series of southeastern cooperative projects, this publication Is a report of work completed under the Research and Marketing Act of 1916 by home economists in Agricultural Txperl- ment stations in the seven states, and in the Bureau of Human Nutrition and Home Economics of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. Dr. Dciilah V. GilJas|)ie, head it the department of home economics at the University of Arkansas, participated in the study. Some 1.500 homemakers of owner- oncralcr farm families were interviewed to obtain the information on which the report Is based. These include 253 liomemniters in Arkansas. The Interviews were designed to provide information that will be helpful to people planning farm ' housing construction in this region.! Results of the survey showed that \ most of the houses in which the '• families lived were of one-story} frame construction, with one or' more porches. Seventy-two per cent I of the homes had electricity. 33 j |)er cent had running water, and 18, per cent a bathroom. Storage facilities were inadequate in over hall of the pro-sent houses'. Major needs and preferences of farm women In planning homes were discovered. The honicmakers were almcst unanimous in their desire for more adequate storage facilities. Almost all families wanted porches, usually an open front porch and a screened back porch. Three-fourths of the 1.500 homemakers interviewed preferred a one-story house.
