The colonel has fathered the livestock show since It began in 1933. There will be something extra this year for the youthful farmers. Byrd says the $5,000 grant made by John O. Cella, president of the Oaklawn Jockey Club. Hot Springs, and Mrs. Cella to Arkansas youths will be distributed. The money will be divided equaHy among 4-H and FFA groups in the form of scholarships and money to buy livestock, Byrd snys. The 4-H Club Day on Monday is a new special observance. It honors Arkansas' 92.000 4-H club members. And. about 3,000 of them are expected to attcnci on that day. Soybean producers hati better be prepared to store some of their crop this fall If prices should fall sharply during harvest. That was the advice this week j P ia from Clay R.

Moore says there especially » is a possibility prices may sag be- supply in tin cause Arkansas producers will he harvesting a record 13.9 million bushels of soybeans this fall. The harvest periods for cotton, rice and soybeans come at the same time. Moore says, and there might be a serious shortage of boxcars to get the commodities to market. tucc, radishes and spinach are still on the list of vegetables that can be planted. If earlier fall plantings were not made or did not succeed, try again I suggest soaking the seeds for sev- era 1 hours or overnight before Needing Hay? If you need hay to maintain your planting. This h^elps seeds germinate or three days sooner.—And important if moisture soil is limited. Plans are on paper for the 1953 A°ric.iltural Conservation Program. And Wrichb says things will be a little different this year. The new approach, says Wright, is for community PMA committeemen to contact personally all farmers in their communities and work out a program of conservation practices for thtx. individual .farms. Experiments along those lines have been conducted already in Nevada and Drew counties, Wright says, and they have resulted Lack of soli moisture makes It doubly Smnortant to keep the garden plot free of weeds and tiller so as to retain any available moisture. Vegetables will be available foi several weeks if a cold frame o hot bed is used. Just before fros many of the storage vegetables such as turnips, carrots 'and Chi nese cabbage, can be lifted—root nnd all—and transplanted closcl 1 in a cold frame. There they wil be protected from the frost. With -the shortage of vegetable this summer you will want to UK every possible way to conserve mor for - late fall and winter, though most garden crops must be preserved in tin or glass, or frozen, others may be preserved in cellars, storage houses, pits, and mounds— in addition to the cold frame.
