FRIDAY, JANUARY 27, 1950 BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NINE Use of Treated Seed is Urged kjil 'py County Ag^nt Warns Farmers of Low Germination of Seed County Agent Keith Bilbrey told cotton farmers today that use of lsease-treatert seed will foe more mportant than ever this year. And at the same time, Vie warned that certain lots of cottonseed certified (o be treated have shown no evidence of seed treatment chemicals when tested by the Stale Plan Board. Mr. Bllbrey point out that reports show Arkansas and Mississippi cottonseed germination— ability to sprout — Is unusually low this year. "Seed treatment won't bring dead seed (o life, nor increase the vigor of weak seed." Mr. Bilbrey said. "But It will kill disease-producing organisms on the seed and make sure that the farmer gels the best possible stand of cotton from aiiy particular lot of seed he buys." Some Not Treated In commenting on the seed supplies available this year, the county agent said that about 80 to 90 per cent of the US. cotton plant- in!! seed is reported as being treated. However, only enough treating material Is being sold to treat about !3 per cent of the seed satisfactorily. All of which seems to indicate, Mr. Biibrey declared, that a great deal of the seed Is not being treated at all, or that it Is being treated with inadequate amounts of chemicals. Experience has shown that- the full amount of material recommended by the manufacturer ^should be 'used, according to the XflJension agent. When reduced a- Rfcnnts are used, results are unsatisfactory, especially If conditions favor "damping-off" of cotton seedlings. If It Is to be effective, treatment must be made at least one month in advance of cotton plant- Ing, Mr. Bilbrey indicated. This gives the chemicals Mine to form gHKes, which carry the toxic material throughout the pile of seed.

Rich Old Uncle Distributes Dollars And Then Stresses Purchase of Bonds By Sam Dawson NEW YORK, Jan. 27. (If}— More people may be trying to get you to spend your money than are "urging you to save It. But you'll have to give both forces a big "A" for effort. Merchandisers are starting an Intensive campaign to Induce you to spend. But bankers are telling each other, "saving must be made as glamorous as spending." Ant! the federal treasury constantly urges you to save your money for a rainy day—which. It seems Is always just 10 years ofl. With one hand Uncle Sam distributes largesse across the land. His other is outstretched to get all the cash back he can In return for savings bonds. Thus, one hand supports the other. The treasury has cash to meet some of Its current bills. And you have Uncle Sam's Interest-bearing I.o.u. In your bank box. In spite of the high cost of living and Amounting . taxes. American^ continue to add to their "nest eggs. Some observers are ama»ed at this steady growth of total savings, even during the days of Inflation and high spending. Others think It Is more a shift of the form of savings from earlier patterns. The favorite forms of savings currently arc insurance, government bonds and bank accounts. Dropping in raUo to other forms Is public investment In corporate securities and in the starling of Individual businesses. And rising are mortgage debt and Installment debt. Some point out that high Income taxes have made the building of large personal estates most difficult, compared with SO years ago. And the falling purchasing power of the dollar has made estates already amassed much less fruitful and attractive. Therefore, the poscwar trend has been away from risk, as In corporate securities, to security, an In insurance, government bonds, annuities, nnd industrial pensions. Savings Show Btr Increase Many forms of savings Increased at a record rate last year. The US Savings and Loan League reports that individual savings In savings and loan associations has reached an all-time high of $155 billion jumping $1.4 billion, or 22.6 per cent last year—the greatest yearly Increase ever enjoyed. The gain over the years is even more startling— at the end of 1939 the total was THE TEETH OF THE NEW ARKANSAS FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY LAW AKE SHARP!
