Boll rotting Is rather heavy this year, he said. , • A dust containing calcium cyn- amld Is recommended for Arkansas' conditions. . This chemical, when properly applied, will cause shedding ot leaves within ssven to 15 days. Mr. Bilbrey said. It will let »lr and sunlight down'.to the lower 45 days after cotton quits making. • '• Very Ullle "Top Crop" Mr. Bilteey said there is very little "top crop" to be protected this year and many fields are flow ready bolls so they will dry rapidly., open quickly and be ready for picking for defoliation. Bolls less than 30 day* old at dusting may produce immature'cot- tonl but it may be desirable to sacrifice some of them in opening up rank cotton to save the bottom bolls and get out some good, white cot- [f'$ time for a "showdown DEMONSTRATION of Tractor Values To get more for your money in a tractor, got a "SHOWDOWN" Demo nut rail on of Ferguson's ability lo do n belter job under 1 , the working conditions of j-our farm.

Wonder Drugs No Substitute For Sanitation LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Sept. 22— "Wonder drugs In livestock feeds are no substitute for sanitation on the farm," animal health authorities today reminded iwln* »nd poultry raisers. . . _.',. "Preliminary studlea Indicate that new antibiotic drugs may have definite value' 1 In swine and'poultry rations. But to drop standard sanitation practices and depend on the drugs Is to' invite costly disease outbreaks on the farm," the American Foundation for Anlmi Health warned. Explaining that research veterinarians and other scientists have barely scratched the surface In their studies of drugged feed, the Foundation advised that owners should hold fast to proven diseas< | prevention measures. The new drugs seem to be effee live against only certain types o germs. They provide no protection at all against many other germ and viruses, the Foundation sale "Still among th'e best practice to safeguard farm animals again! disease, according to the lates findings of veterinarians, are sue practices as removal of refuse piles keeping barns and stables clean destruction of Insects, and main tenance of clean food and wate supplies.", : These precautions, along w i t prompt diagnosis of the troub! when an animal becomes sick, sti pay off the 'biggest dividends o the farm, the Foundation added.

Defoliation ta • must If mechanical pickers are used, Mr. Bilbrey emphasized. The machines work with reduced efficiency in leafy, rank cotton. Leave* present contact between the sptadles and many open bolls. Defoliation eliminates this Interference, as well as the green staining, that occurs when le&evs are' crushed against the lint. Defoliation also makes hand picking cleaner and faster and helps to get the crop out earlier. In the boll weevil territory winter control of the weevil is helped by defoliation. These weevils go into hibernation In i weakened condition. • ' - '- • I Fair Inflttene* ' A good fair has more influence on il ol us than perhaps we are will- ig to admit.
