JACK ROBINSON IMPLEMENT CO. 500 E. Main Phone 2371 Brannan Asks For Increase in Com Production Larger Crop Needed For Livwtock; USDA Secretary Report* WASHINGTON, Nov. 3. IIP)— The government yesterday asked farmers to produce more corn next year to assure plenty of feed for "abundant" production of livestock. Secretary' of Agriculture Brannan n making the call, said all Indications point to an even greater demand for meat next year than .his year. The secrelary said th«re will he no controls,on corn production except on voluntary acreage planting allotments. The allotments will be larRcr than this year, but how much will be determined later. Farm law permits use of rigid marketing quotas when supplies are excessive. But quota's have never been applied to corn. Growers must comply with planting allotments In order to be eligible for government price supports. However, they may plant more than their allotments if they do not need or desire price support aid; Today's announcement had been anticipated for several months, oe- cause, corn supplies, while large, are being used at a heavy rate under a livestock expansion program. Several weeks ago, Brannan suspended all controls on cotton next year because of-a very short'crop. Peanuts and tobacco are likely to be the only crops subject to marketing quotas next year. - . Evergreens Need Watering Up to First Big Freeze Unless evergreens . are watered now. the home owner Is likely lo 'ace a "deep freeze" proble'm of his own this winter. Thirst of these lush trees and shrubs' knows no season. Since they retain their foliage, they give off moisture the year 'round. M. W. Staples', field supervisor of the Davey Tree Expert Company, reminds owners , th*a t evergreens hould get adequate "drinks" right p until the first bigi freeze, other- ,lse, they may dry out, with ugly irown' spots appearing to mar symmetry antl health. Some of our best decorative species tend to be shallow rooted.

The following men received a soil inalysfs' from the University last .yeek: Charles Brogdon, Aaron Wil- .iams, Earnest Clark, Sivelle rvans, 3tto Donner, Jerome Gray, William P. Biggs, Bobby Harris, J. E. Krech ind Douglas E. Wnlker. If you are a neighbor to any of these men, maybe reading their recommendations would help you in planning your own soils management program. The recommendation on one ot Charlie Brogdon's fields Just south of Blythevllle said, "This soil is moderately well supplied with avail- able nutrients in the surface toils, although potash is low in the sub soil. Cotton should respond favorably to nitrogen application in normal years at the rate of 50 to 60 pounds of available nitrogen per acre, we see you have used some potash under the cotton this year. It may be difficult to determine the effects of this potash unless you have left a few rows untreated for comparison. ••• , • 'No fertilization Is suggested for soybeans on this land." ' A part of the. otto Donner's report in the Manila area said, "The soil is very, low In organic 'matter and available.'potassium In both the surface and .subsoil; and cotton should, respond well .to both nitrogen and potash, fertilization. It is suggested that the cotton be fer- tilized with 80 pounds of muriat of potash per acre and 50 to 6 pounds of available nitrogen pe acre. Apply this under the row a planting or put half .'the • nitrogen tinder the ww and. other half a a side dressing when 'the cotto is thinned." - ..' ,_ . Koyheana .
