"Farmers also want to know kind of immunization method should be used. This is something that should be determined by the veterinarian -when he checks the drove to determine whether It is in condition., for Immunization, "Still another question farmers ask is:.'If I didn't have hog, cholera losses last year, do I need to vaccinate this yeaVr' "The answer is 'yes.'

Time to Talk Cabbage The time has come to talk cab- oage. There are plenty on the market and, I hope, in your garden. Cabbage is one of the top-ranking vegetables as far ns vitamins are concerned. Cabbage may be red, green, or white. If it's a choice of color, take the green every time; lor the greener the leaf the more vitamins. Americans eat more cabbage than any other vegetable except- potatoes, Today cabbage is cooked for minutes instead of hours. Short cooking time saves the delicate cabbage flavor and the crisp texture. And, of course, the shorter the cooking time, the less the odor. Panning is a quick' easy way to cook cabbage. Put fat in a pan that you can cover, heat — but don't, add any water. Add the shredded cabbage and let it cook in Us own steam for 8 . to 10 minutes until wilted. Cabbage la equally good when cooked or served in a raw salad. Cabbage leaves will double for lettuce as a bed for salad mixture. Or, you can use chopped cabbage for ,he salad itself. For variations, add cucumbers cut in' thin slices, chop- ly kills within four to seven days. It also Lends to attack in cycles. If outbreaks were light during the previous year, there may bs heavy outbreaks the next year.

Agri Staff nall Graf as for Winter Pasture I suppose every man In this county who has a livestock herd will plant small grains for winter pasture. A good winter pasture can make you and the cows both forget thai you had a serious drouth. Winter oats make ihe best winter grazing ih Arkansas. Your Arkansas experiment .stations say that rye, wheat and barley arc next best in. the order mentioned. Winter oats arc surprisingly high in protein. A recent statement from the Live stock and Forestry Branch Experiment Station said, "Reef cattle gain an average of 309 pounds per acre on fall seeded oats compared to '232 pounds per acre on Balboa rye." "The past four years work at Ihe North Mississippi Branch Experiment Station shows that steers or good winter pastures have averagec 100 per cent more profits than steers on full ration of corn atu cottonseed meal in the feed lot,' Superintendent s. P. Crockett reported. CnUon Leaf Worms Cotton leaf %vornv> were discov ered in North Mississippi Countj In a number of communities tin first of this week. In no cnse.wcti they thick enough to require poi soiling. One of our traveling entomolo gists told us/.."Wednesday of thi week that there were a few field of cotton around Lake City i Cratghead County where this gen eration of leaf worm was thlc enough to justify poisoning. If yo have cotton that is slill succulen and growing you should be on th lookout for cotton leaf worms. I talked to Mr. Barnes, the Ex tension Entomologist at Fayctte villc, Wednesday and'he said wit the leaf worm population in Sou Arkansas, as well as numbers this nrea, he would guess that v could have a heavy generation leafworms somewhere In the neigl FAYETTEV1LLE — The appointment? of Cecil Black well as instructor in the University of Arkansas^ Horticulture and Forestry Department wns announced today by Dean Lippert S.

Summer's Greatest Gift Summer apples. Summer apples are primarily cooking apples and so they make wondrous pies and the most superb applesauce you have have ever tasted.

Chances are it needs some extra watering and feeding, bul occasionally there may be some more serious trouble. If there is severe wilting of the leaves on one or more branches it may be \vsKe to call in a professional tree man. The foliage injury may be due to a fungous disease known as maple wilt, v/nrns J. L. Heston, field representative of the Davey Tree Expert Co. The Norway maple and the sugar maple are most often and most severely a t tacked, but other maples are also susceptible. These, of course, are among our finer shade trees. Unless caught in Ihe early stages, maple wilt Is usually fatal. This sapwood disease stamps Its trademark with green" streaks inside limbs and trunks. Tree doctors make their diagnosis from borings and LITTLE ROCK.
