Rolls are maturing on early colon and in Jefferson County a few open bolls were reported last week. In some areas abundant, moi-;U:re haf caused a rank growth which is I making poisoning more riifniinlt. I Eoli weevils are taking heavy tollj. in the upland area?, especially in fields where recommended control practices have not been followed. In the delta, however, the wc«vil picture is much brighter, heavy polsonine and a week without inin have helped considerably. Leaf worm. boHworm, red spider and. wilt are causing damage in some localities .but the main enemy, except in the extreme northeast, is boll weevil, Tf (rood ' wcnlhrr continues pnd 1 the supply of Insecticides hold? out mast sections will make R fairly Sfood cotton crop. An excellent crop of rarly corn Is "made". Bud worms are ciui«mg considerable damage to the late crop .and a few farmers have he grin poisoning. Soybeans are losing color In low gpota but are making good progress tn well-drained fields. Farme i? all over the s(at r. were busy sivine hay last week, in some sections this was the first hay put up all season.

W | lh 200 poumls This rot ton I? on the, Roy Davis farm. Since it I* the best field of rotlon 1 lifU'ft seen so lar, you might like to dr'w» by and fpo. it .sometime. Coilon Leaf Worms Leaf worm s continue txi scarp our kafworms In the last two weeks. E do not know of anyone who lias had! to poison for Ihe worms so far. j When these particular worms j hatch into millers, they have a very! strong urge to fly north before Iheyi Marl laying ctjgs. Cot' MI leaf worm millers have been found as far north' as Canada, before disappearing. Texas has a bad outbreak of leaf- worm What we are afraid of is that a strong prevailing southwest wind may bring in a Inrpc number of millers from the Texa.s area and we may have a bad leaf worm infestation l>cfore October. I am not selling poi.sons but II you are afraid you might have leaf- worm to poison, you belter buy H now. The boll weevil problem makes day. f'o((i>n Flea Hoppers I.- your cotton blooming (o suit you? I have found Just a few fields wuh one application of loxaphene. If your cotton is blonming to suit you, you rrm rest assured that you are not hemp hnlhnird with flea hoppers, tarnish plant bugs, or boll weevil. Hrrt Spldrr I have always bren told that heavy rains would control red spider After the wettest year I can remember we have quite a lot of red spider in cotton. Apparently there Is no easy control for spider. The recommended material, a sulphur DN mixture, is not available and the best thine we can recommend is stratsht dusting sulphur, about 15 pounds to the acre.

Many pasture men all over the South say they can get as good a sod and irore grazing from lour bushels of nals per acre than any other pasture. I know that Is mor» orit-s pet acre than most of yoil have used by why not try It on A small acreage? Remember lhal oats make tn* greatest response to nitrogen fertil- isers.
