John Kankin, the last of Mississippi's old-school while supremacists and denouncer of Yankees, has lost his seat to his former colleague Rep. Thomas Abernethy.

I The 49-year-old Abernelhy was reserved about dethroning the 70- year-old dean of Ihe Mississippi congressional delegalion, who was seeking his lllh term in the House of Representatives. AbernEthy's victory statement • aid he had been Rankin's friend during his own 10-year tenure In Congress and "I regret we found ourselves in the same districl, Ihus making our opposition unavoidable." TVA Co-Author Rankin, chairman t.1 the House Veterans Affairs Committee, was co-author of Ihe bill creating Ihe Tennessee Valley Authority and author of the measure creating the permanent House Committee Un-American Activities. Abernethy, a senior member of the House Agriculture Committee, based his campaign on two issues: his 'position In Congress to aid farmers and his comparative youth.

(Courier News Photo) County Agent Bilbrey Says: Soybeans Not Hurt By Clover Worms North Mississippi County's potential three million-dollar sovbean crop will not be materially affected In yield by the current infestation of green-clover worms, County Agent Keith Bilbrey said this morning. Mr. Bilbrey. made his statement, while reaffirming an earlier claim that the worm infestation which has gripped practically all of Mid- South is not as alarming as most farmers think. Mr. Bilbrey said he, Assistant County Agent H. H. Carter and County Entomologist Gene Guinn have been inspecting North Missis-, sir-pi County soybean fields con-V" stantly since Aug". .16 keeping a steady .check on the worms and that since Monday they have concluded that: (1)—The worm population -is on the decrease. <' 2 >—Older worms are pupating. (3)—Green clover worms eat only leaves. (4)—They are much lighter feeders than their close relative, the cotton leaf worms. "However, we are not saying that a farmer need not check his field," Mr. Bilbrey cautioned. "We have found one or two cases where the fields were left unattended and as a result the yields possibly will be damaged some as most of the leal surface has been eaten away.

Thc county agent also cautioned that his statements applied only to North Mississippi- County and not to olher areas as the situation might be entirely different in oilier areas. "Count ies\ to the south, west and north of us have reported Infestations of corn ear worms and this most certainly Ls serious, as corn ear worms do feed on soybean pods and therefore they are damaging. "I have received calls from as far away as Tupelo. Miss., about worms in soybeans and all I can tell them is about the situation here and advice them to contact their county agents." He said very few corn ear worms have been found in North Mississippi County soybean fields. Rumor Causes Alarm Mr. Bilbrey qualified his claim that the worms are not damaging soybean yields to a great extent by explaining that there are approximately 45,000 acres of soybeans in North Mississippi County this year. and that the worms ' hrjvs been found in such large numbers and so generally that had they been See SOYBEANS on Page 5 .
