The decline came on the mite of 14.906.000 bales. That's heels of a new national crop estl- 482,000 bales over the Oct. 1 estimate. ' . The 19S2 forecast for Arkansas was ,1,100.000. bales, up 50,000 over last month. ' The excitement over 'the price drop _ s(pps when It gets to J. lj. Wright, state chairman of the Pro^ ductlon and Marketing Administration. Nothing Uriusul Wright says-there is nothing too unusual about the price decline, ..considering that production estimates are up nearly one-half-million bales and harvesting Is far ahead of schedule. The pure and simple fact is that there is a clogg ed market. < ' The state PMA chief reaffirms his conviction that orderly market tng of the cotton will stabilize .price He estimates' that, about '25 '.per cent of Arkansas cotton already substitute for the real; thing because it Is low in nutritive con- ent, high in cellulose and rather unpalatable.. But it will serve as supplement to other feeds. The farmers plan to grind or hammer-mill • the slr'a'w and ' feed t along with concentrates to carry cattle through the winter. ginned has "of loan. gone into : some ' kind Drouth Handover The heavy rairis over the weekend made,, the drouth .and fdresl fires a thing of the past. But the aftermath,.; like that of receding floods' or other disasters, lingers on .' / • The . main' effect seems to be lack of livestock-feed. IjCe'Counti .farms have done the" next best thing. ;• County Agent 6>N. Stivers says about 5,000, acres of soybean straw has; been harvested .as a'by-produci In the i county to supplement the feed shortage. This is the' first time farmers In that county have saved the soybean-straw behind combines; says Stivers. Soybean- straw, no Bird Monty ' • At least three Logan County farmers will attest to the fact that, there's money In turkeys. Gordon Hixsoi), Paris feed dealer,' says I. M. White was paid $20,006 this week for 3.200 turkeys: q. . B. Hanson, $161000 for 2,600 birds; and L. O. (Redding sold 2,808 turkeys for $18,410. ' Hixson says turkey raising adds slM.OOO cash Income , to Logan County-each year. this year- by as" much as 17 per cent.. JV G. Bennett - of Charlotte, Ark,, produced 26.S44 pounds of salable cucumbers from three acres ...A farmer in the Mountain Pine Community'of Garland pounty has found—like other farmers — tha' chickens pay off as a supplement to dairying and beef cattle rais Ing. County Agent DuvalC. Poln dexter says Lewis McMahon made »2,660 on , broilers the first., nine months of this year. A Lonoke County farmer, Ewell Nixon, says , "fish farming works well .with rice." Nixon told Assistant County Agent Leaihpn . U Lboney he harvested rice from 'a 60-acre reservoir "which'he has had In fish for the past three years. Looney says he gathered 75 bushels an "acre and about 25 bushels on acre was left on rice that had fallen down. An increase of 1.5 per cent in original matter, was disclosed through 1 soil samples. Looney plans to' keep the reservoir in fish two years, followed with soybeans and the fourth year in rice. H.D.CLUBMEMOS Mra.

Leaders' Part- There perhaps will be more rol)s served after this "month's bread- making demonstrations being given by the food and nutrition leaders in the home demonstration clubs. They, are-really doing a good-job. ^fakes everyone want to go home and see If they can do as well. The leader's attended a bread- making '.leader .training meeting given by f Mrs. Helen Carr recently. There are nine project leaders in each home demonstration club. Their: participation In the program helps to extend extension work and also to teach leadership. Safety The Pedestrian Safety Program Is being conducted by the Arkansas Council . of Home Demonstration Clubs in cooperation with 'the National' Safety Cuncil. Pedestrians frequently cross against the HghU or between intersections,, dash out; from behind parked cars, or .scoot across the street almost- completely hldd-n behind "an umbrella or a mound of packages. It's very difficult to understand the attitude of the careless pedes- ,trian. Common sense tells him that in' any contest with a motor vehicle he's bound to lose, yet he continually : overestimates the motorist's ability- to see.his reaction time, his control of the vehicle, and his courtesy and.patience. Wriile, many walkers get away with such conduct,'the'cemeteries and hospitals have more than their share of those ' who * are. not ^ so lucky.
