Phones 2860-2976 MCPA Seeks More Cotton Research Funds roBTAOEVILLE Mo.—The Missouri Cotton Producers Association Is sponsoring a movement to secure more state funds for agricultural research. 8. Crews' Reynolds, President ol the association, staled that (he present state approprlntlon for this wnrk Is ridiculously low. While the vnlue of Missouri's agricultural pro- rtucls ranks 6th In the nation, (he state Is 47th with respect to funds provided for agricultural research. According to Reynolds, agriculture Is a highly specialized business and only farmers who have the latest and most up-lo-ttale Information on crops and production practices can hone to compete with other segments of the economy. Research Is particularly important during this emergency period. as the welfare of (he nation depends to a great extent on a strong and highly productive agriculture. Reynolds has appointed a seven- man committee, header! by J. R. Pauling, RescArch Director for Besting Farms. Inc,, Dccrlng, Mo., to make recommendations lor nn expanded research program. Dr. J. H. Longwcll, Dean Missouri College of Agriculture, and Dr. W. C.

On the basis of U.S. Department of Agriculture records the country is (llvltlctl into lones, in each of which the average date of the last killing frost In spring Is approximately the same. One month before this date Is selected as the time lor "Planting Time" In ttel zcr.e. Seeds of hardy varieties may be sown; hardy plants may be transplanted; tender varieties may lie started under protection, and merchants of garden goods should make these available to their customers.
