Term., Nov. 10 — Insect Control In a Cotton Crisis," will be the theme of the fourth annual Cotton Insect Control Conference which win be held here Deo. 7-8 Emphasis will be on the role of cotton insect control'in theJall-out elicit to produce 16 million bales of cotton during 1951. Discussion will center on some of the major problems facing farmers In protecting their 1951 cotton crop against such pests as the boll weevil Pink bollworm. aphid, bollworm. flcahopper, leafworm and other marauders. The cotton Insecticide supply outlook; problems In providing adequate stocks of pesticides: equipment and application techniques: inter-relationship oJ Insect control defolfnllon and cultural practices; and the utilization of weather forecasts in cotton production, are among topics listed on the two-day program. A summary of cotton insect control research across the Cotton Belt In 1950 will be presented by entomologists from the four major cotton producing areas—the Southeast. Mid-South, Southwest, and F»r West. Entomologists at the final session will issue recommendations for their respective states, explaining In Ai- tail procedures for controlling cotton insects In 1951. Suggested Insecticides, rates and methods of application,-and time for poisoning will be included In the recommendations. Speakers will Include representatives of the 'Insecticide Industry, the experiment stations and Extension services, u iwell as federal entomologists. Form Agents Join In Backing Fall Bond Campaign North Mississippi County's Agricultural Extension Service staff today added Its support to the Treasury Department's Jail campaign to sell more U.S. Savings Bonds to farm families. ' County Agent Keith Bllbrey »rid Home Demonstration Agent, Mrs. Gertrude B. Hollman pointed out ,hat through purchase of savings bonds, rural people can build greater security for themselves. At the same time, they will be making a profitable investment. Farming Is a high-risk business, ;he agents emphasized. That makes t desirable for any surplus farm ncome to be put Into a risk-free Investment. Series E Savings Bonds fill this requirement. In fact, they've been termed the safest Investment In the world. And over a period of ten years, the investor get-s back four dollars for every three he puts into bonds. Because the bonds can be cashed in any time after 60 days from the date of issue, they provide a quickly available financial 'reserve for anv emergency. Another important advantage In buying bonds Is that It strikes a strong blow against lunation, the extension agents declared. Savings bonds represent the least nflationary type of government xnrowlng during the present per- od of defense spending. Bonds sold ;o Individuals are not transferable and therefore cannot be used as rMfcrr~ a Olr ' 17 ' "owned Golden Guernsey Girl f or ,950 ^ the Novalo.

TERRY ABSTRACT & REALTY CO. *12 W ffilntt m«M SMI Green Gold Farmers by the score are singing the praises of soybeans. Ed Stacy at Dell says they have helped many a farmer to pay Ills debts this year. Some folks call the beans "yellow gold" but I still sny "green sold", because at least 90 per cent of all the soybeans are Ogden or Ogden selections. I still think promoting the Ogden bean in this county is one V the better things we have done for farm people. "Ogden Bilbrey" I was known as in them days, when we were trying U> show farmers they would actually out yield any other variety grown in this area. They did not look like they were the best yielders from appearance but they nearly always yield considerably more beans per acre. Finished v Three farmers'came by the office in' the last hour "and said they were through combining beans. They were: T.' A. Bourland, Lost Cane; Malcolm Koonce, New Liberty; and W. A. Lewis, Blytheville. Mr. Koonce has his soybeans in the government loan and he is watching the price go up every day. Good Bulletins We have an excellent new bulletin on the subject of "Keeping Roses in Good Health." If you nave roses around your home or hope to set out some soon you might like to have a copy of this Extension Circular No. 412. It is free for the asking. Are you worried about termites in your home? we also have a good Extension Circular on "Preventing Termite Damage." Ask for Extension Circular No. 446. U.S.D.A. entomologists (bug specialists) Just recently approved the use of DDT solutions for the control of. termites. They said, "DDT solutions may be substituted for pentachlorophenol, creosote,' ortho- dichlorobenzene. or other mixtures recommended for termite control." Needle In Haystack U.S.D.A. entomologists have been sifting trash from all the gins in the county to determine whether or not any pink ' bollworms have been brought Into this part of the colon belt. So far, I think the only thing they have found is a very small number of boll weevils. Most of these have come out of trash from gins in the southwestern part of the county. Jack of All Trades .••I had fun visiting wit-h the Harry Manli family between Yorbro and Number Nine last week. They won the home improvement contest in this county and while we were out there with the stat'e Judging team I learned a lot of new and interesting things about them. Mr. and Mrs. Mantz almost completely built their new home themselves. That includes the finishing work, painting, laying of tile floor, and Installing the electric wiring. You ladle* would be Jealous If 'ou could lee their home. They lave at least two receptacles In every room ,and in some cases more. In addition to being a good far- 1 mer I found out that Mr. Mantz U also expert at leathercraft.

Fall Best Time To Prune, Cable On the many thousands of trees that are badly damaged or destroyed by winter storms, certain kinds ran* nigh on the casualty lists lu sections likely to be hit by sleet and snow, with accompanying high winds, it will pay to be particularly careful about the more vulnerable specimens, according to UP. Irvine, field representative of the Davey Tree Expert Co. Many wintertime nroorcal casual- tics arc avertible, according to Mr Irvine,, Before the real thrust of winter, it I s good practice to prune all dead and broken limbs and cable weak v-shaped trunks and heavy branches. Many people believe pruning is desirable only during the growing season. As a matter of 'act, there are advantages In doing pruning' now. Structural defects are more readily apparent on the denuded trees. Pruning itself is more easily and effectively done. All valuable trees, of course, Agri Aviation Group to Meet In Memphis The National Agricultural Aviation Conference will conduct Us third annual meeting at Hotel Pen- body In Memphis Feb. 19-20, accord- Ing lo Charles Hose of Roseland, president of Ihc National plying Formers Association.

Above all, favorite trees of the following kinds should get prime attention, for they are among those most likely to fall victim to frigid storms: Boxelder, silver maple, sugar mi- pie, willow, Japanese pagodatree, American linden, silver linden, American elm, honeylocust, planetree, hackberry and dogwood. Virtually all of these are popular and fairly widely planted in sections likely to "get severe utormj. Weak-wooded trees and those with V-shaped forks are most susceptible.
