COURIER NEWS PACE Arkansas Crops Show Good Gains i During October &\ Production Is Only 14 Per Cent Below Last Year's Mark October weather in Arkansas was Almost idea! for the development of late cotton, rice, soybeans and also for harvest which made good progress during October and early November, according La the Federal- State Crop Reporting Service. As A result, the Service reported, total production of Held crops in Arkansas In mid-November was only 14 per cent loss than last year coin- pared with an indicated 16 per cent less a month earlier. This year's production is about 1.5 per cent below, the 1939-48 average. The Arkansas soybean crop was placed at 10,750,000 bushels—which is a record productlon—ft'nd a record yield per acre of 21.5 bushels.

Production is estimated at.' 33,236,000 bushels, 35 per cent larger than last year's crop and .21 percent Above average.

Dec. 10-14, Joe C. Hardin, Orady, president of the Arkansas Farm Bureau Federation, has announced. Mr. Harrlln said the selection of Dallas as the site for the national convention Is an honor for the south. The Iftst time it was held In the southern region was In^igsa it New Orleans. j ' ' . Arkansas should have one of the largest state delegations In attendance, he said. "We hope that every aOgty Farm Bureau In the state T;*^! be represented," he staled. He said the slate Farm Bureau office I« handling details pertaining to hotel reservations for members planning to attend the event. Mr. Hardin said resolution cover- Ing all problems affecting the wel- . fare of agriculture are adopted by the voting delegates at the convention. The aggregate of these resolution comprises the entire program of the national organization and are the basis for action 1 by the national officers, board of directors «nd staff. "These resolutions are the final result of grass roots discussion," he said. "They are. In the last analysis, the member's own policy, which he. In consultation with his neighbors and with members all o"er tn. country has determined himself." Membership In the American Farm Bureau Federation is the largest In Its history, with 1,409,798 farm families enrolled in 45 stales nnd the Island of Puerto Rico. Farm Bureau today stands as the largest farm organization In the world. and Is also the largest farm organization that has .ever existed. Though used for thousands of years by gardeners, cold frames are just as useful now as in the days of the Roman empire. Originally pits In which plants could be protected on cold nights by a covering, which was removed when the sun, shone, the chief difference today Is lhat glass, or a translucent plastic, servers for covering. Every complete garden needs a cold frame. It Is a most useful tool all year around, if you lack this aid lo garden success, fp.ll is a good lime to build it, and the illustration shows how it may be constructed and put to immediate use for rooting winter flowerlnc; bulbs. Hyacinths, early tulips, narcissi and daffodils are the principal ones which need a dark, cool ,'situation to encourage early root formation. Bury them in the frame bed in the pots you expect to grow them in, and when roots have developed sufficiently bring them Indoors for the qulclc growth of the tops and blc«- soms. The frosts of late fait bring lo mind problems of harboring pansy and perennial sedlings. It you plant them late they will no doubt need •some -additional protection, *Vnd the cold frame will provide it. The best all-around method is to pot the plants, and set them into Ihe frame. Such treatment assures a few more weeks of growth, and will enable them to benefit from extra warmth in Ihe spring and gel an early start. Perennials which are difficult to -grow without Ihls protection include Ihe foxgloves with ihelr stalely spires, the canterbury bells and delphiniums. Although they arc perfectly hardy so far as cold weather is concerned, Ihey are very susceplible to wet weather, and thawing and freezing. There Is only one safe way to grow them in cold chmaies and that Is by wintering them in a cold frame, where they will be safe from wet and the changes in temperature will be tempered by Ihe glass of the frame.
