FRIDAY, APRIL 4, 195t BMTHEVTTJ.K (ASK.) COURIER NEWS FARM NEW! FAOB AND ! Short, Straight Rows are Best For Home Garden 25 Feet Considered Ik Maximum Length for Most Vegetable Rows In small Liberty gardens there Is R definite advantage In planting vegetables In short rows, 25 feet or less. In an oblong garden. where the short dimension Is north and south permitting rows to run in this direction, the owner Is fortminle. The advantage of short rous is secondary In Importance to the distribution o( sunshine, however, and where the long ' dimension of the garden space Is north and south, it is best to break the rows that way, breaking tlie length by a path every 25 feet. Commercial growers, cultivating a'ith power machines favor long first, because It lessens the time required for turning machines around. But Ihe home gardener gains no such advantage! and when a row Is longer than Is required for a. slnele planting of «. vegetable, he must divide a row between two crops, which is Inconvenient, or fill out the row with one, and thus overplant. Indeed, much of tile waste of garden space and effort caused by over-production, .may be traced to the «twln temptations, to "use up the Vpacket." when half of a packet of seed would produce the required crop; or "fill up the row," when half of a garden row would be sufficient, Shorter rows have another advantage, which Is real, though It may seem trivial. In cultivating you naturally take one row as a stint, and rest when you finish It." With short rows, you take it easy, as you should; and break up the garden work with frequent rests, \vlth long rows it Is mor» likely that you will become tired of garden tasks, and this In turn may result In neglect- j Ing them. ' An exception to the rule for straight rows may be made In hilly country, where the wash of soil may be checked by contour planting. . Here rows should run at right angles to the slope, but they should still be parallel, though on rounded slopes they will be curved. : Serpentine, slanting or uneven rows will double the work of culll- vallon, and give an appearance of Incompetence to the garden, i Rows are spaced according to the Breeds of the crop, and the conven- ^! rl .ire of cultivation. Tn rich soil v~TtEibles may be spaced more r'c^elv than in poor; but when too close together, it Is dlffl- c"*t to cultivate between the rows. Tr or crops growing twelve Inches tall or less, rows may be' spaced 10 Inches to a foot apart and cultivated with hand tools. For cultivation witb a wr/eel hoe, eighteen inches Is likely to be found n minimum distance, since It Is necessary to avoid disturbing the roots of the vegetables, whatever tool Is used. Taller vegetables, and those that make vines, large bushes, or have a sprawling habit, must be given more distance between rows. In smull gardens, t feet will usually be the maximum distance, given only for such crops as bush squash and cucumbers.

Purchases 3,300 Acres For Cattle Improvement Project FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. —The purchase by the University of Arkansas of approximately 3,300 acres of land In the Lake Wcd- Inglon Land Utilization Project area was announced Jointly by Secretary of Agriculture Churloii F. Brannan and Dean Lippert S. Ellis ot the University of Arkansas College of Agriculture. Tile decision of the Department of Ag- rlculiure to sell this land lo the University Is evidence ot the Department's Intense Interest in the regional project for Improvement ol beet cattle through breeding now under wny at the University. Dean Ellis pointed out. the purchiiscd land. In the northwestern part of the stale, is part of the Lake Wedinalon Land Ulilizatlon Project, consisting of 17,500 acres of land owned by Ihe Uniled States Government under the supervision of the Soil Conservation .Scryicp.. This project is being managed and developed for use by local people for grazing, woodland, recreation, and wildlife purposes. Although the sale will reduce the amount of grazing available to local livestock owners, J. E. Crilz. District Conservationist at Fayetteville, stated that grazing needs of the smaller operators surrounding the area can partially be satisfied on tlie remaining pasture land. The Itmd purchased is located in the eastern part of the area north of Savoy and Highway le] In Washington County, Dean Ellis stated. It consists largely of posture and cut-over woodland. It will become a part of the main Agrl- cultural Experiment Station of the Collage ol Agriculture, and will be used in the Station's beef cattle research program. Primary emphasis In the work on the new acreage will be given to research studies now under way in Arkansas and other southern states In connection with a regional project on the improvement of beef cattle through breeding. The Department of Agriculture is cooperating in that project. Included in the research is an attempt to determine more adequate criteria for evaluating beef cattle such as record of performance tests and tests for proving herd sires and brood cows, it is planned to Include studies of livestock management on pasture, on a large acreage basis, Dean Ellis pointed out. The Experiment Station's beef cattle herds, which now consist of 250 head of purebred Aberdeen Angus, Hereford, and Shorthorn cattle, will be moved [o the new experimental area as soon as the land cun be made ready. It Is expected ihat the number will be mcre.-ised lo 400 hend (n the future, after pasture futilities have been expanded. Work will begin at nice on building .tcncc.s, improving pastures, and constructing buildings, such as barns and collage's for the herdsmen. Arrangements for Hie purchase of the liuid were worked out with ihe assistance of Ilollis Williams Arkansas KUite Conservationist-' Leo S. Wortmnn.

Department ot Agriculture. In 1950, (here were 12 per cent feiver cows In the U. S. Ihan In I9-S5 but they ernging 500 pounds more than their sisters of five years back. Here are Ihe figurcE: Jn 1915. there were 25328000 cows In (he country and they turned out 12", billion pounds of milk an average of 4.791 pounds per cow In 1950. 22.773.000 cows produced 120.600.000.000 pounds of milk. That's an average per cow of 5292 pounds.

That is about Hie same as away back in 1880, when land still »as very cheap, and free homesteads were still available. In the same connection It Is Interesting to note Hint the .iot«l number of persons engaged In farming declined from about 10 million In 1835 lo only 7 million in 1951. And, though the amount of land in culthntiqn has remained virtually unchanged during this period, the volume of ngrluiirj ml , jirodutrfion one-lhird. has Increased about After 1880, according lo the U.
