In 1967 you will be entitled to a production payment of 11.53 cents per pound, times your projected yield, 6n 65 percent of your effective allotment. The 1966 production payment was 9.42 cents per pound. This production payment will be a little higher in 1967 be- ca'use the 1967 loan rate will be a little lower. The loan rate on middling one inch cotton next year will be 20.25 cents per pound. This year the loan wis 21 cents per pound. The diversion payment for any amount of cotton you reduce between 12^4 and 35 percent will be 10.7 cents a pound of the fertilizer elements might increase soybean yields. They did not. There was no significant increase in yield from any of the of the amount per acre. Believe it or not, there was a significant decrease in soybean yields when twenty pounds of phos phorus was used per acre. This reminds me of the University cotton fertilizer tests conducted at Yarbro for a three or four year period. On that soil I believe the sixty pound oi phosphorus per acre tended to reduce yields Surely there are some fields in Mississippi County where phosphorus or potash fertilizer did increase soybean yields. More North Mississippi County farmers than usual tried times your projected y i e 1 d, I some fertilizer on soybeans this year. Most trials were based on **.... • __l_i!

H. Wyatt, BIytheville; Clyde Whistle, Osceola; and Hudson Wren, Wilson. Theme Of the meeting was "Land, Water, and People." 4-H Heads Lauded Lists Ways Of Killing Brush JIM WALLACE j Assistant County Extension Agent What is a 4-H club leader? Probably everyone would have a little different answer to this question. I Slink they are a fine group of people who make an Assistant County Agent's job more enjoyable and far less complicated. One of the best definitions of a 4-H leader I know of comes rom Mrs. Dave Hill, a 4-H ays, "Somewhere between the ternness of a parents, and the comradeship of .a pal is that mysterious creature we call a -H leader. These leaders come n all shapes and sizes and may be male or female. But they all have one thing in common — a glorious twinkle in their eyes." Four-H leaders are found everywhere — at judging contests junior fairs, square dances and talent shows — and are always preparing for sitting through, participating in, or recuperating from a meeting of some kind. They are tireless consumers of muffins, expert at taking knots out of thread, peerless basketball coaches and spend hours on the telephone. By W. F.

Purler News ~_ FrMiy, December t. UM - P»n MM State Cotton Crop ; Lowest Since 1950 WASHINGTON (Af>) - Th* Agriculture Department in its inal report of 1966 today estimated the Arkansas cotton crop t 775,000 bales of 500. pounds, gross weight. This is 200,000 iales less than the November Orecast. A freeze in early November was blamed for most Of the Arkansas decrease. Nationally the estimate was 9,627,000 bales, 663,000 bales ess than last month's forecast. The November figure was 10,290,000 bales, the smallest crop since 1950. Production was 14,956,000 last year and 14,795,000 Last month's forecast fOr Ar- ;ansas was 975,000 bales with a yield of 544 pounds per acre. National production dropped sharply this year under a department program offering special payments to growers underplanting their acreage al- Otments. The goal of the program is to reduce a surplus and •eserve supply which was near- y 17 million bales at the start of the 1966-crop season. * * * A similar program has been announced for 1967. The Agriculture Department said the freeze caused moderate damage to unopened bolls n Texas and Oklahoma and inflicted severe losses in many Delta and southeastern states. Hardest hit, the department said, were Arkansas and Missouri, where about 43 per cent of the large bolls were unopened just prior to the freeze. The department also releasd figures on ginnings of cotton to Dec. 1 this year, compared to last year. In Arkansas, 718,95!

Swift, Atty Ad Litem 11-25,12-2,9,16 compared to 1,423,451 for the same period in 1965. The estimated yield per harvested acre in Arkansas given today was 435 pounds a sizeable drop fr&m last month'i estimate of 544 pounds. Missouri Rabies Up <ty W. F. James County Extension Director Caruthersville There were 233 positive lab- iratory diagnoses of rabies In Missouri up to the third week of October compared to 10 cases or the same period in 1965. Slightly more than half diagnoses have been in wild animals mainly skunks and foxes. Most Of the rest have been in dogs, cats and cattle. Annual vaccination of all dogs nduding those confined to mmes, and the control of strays is the best approach to irotection of pets and people, fhere is no recovery from, nor cure for rabies after the symptoms appear. All species of animals are susceptible, therefore even animals in confinement could be exposed fay small rabid ani- rials such as mice, rats or bats Farm and rural pets must also be included in vaccination programs as they have the best op. portunity of being exposed to wild animals. _ During an early stage of the disease, rabid animals roam and wander aimlessly attacking other nimals and even inanimate objects. For this reason, one rabid animal may expose many other animals and per- *6ns. * + + Salivation and paralysis o! throat muscles with an accompanying change in voice are common signs of rabies in animals. Coma and death are the end result. Whenever a person is bitten by an animal, he should notify immediately the health authorities or his local veterinarian so.- ttiat the animal can be confined and observed, and then contact his physicial. Rabies virus is spread through saliva which enters into the body through bite wounds or other injuries. If it is necessary to destroy a suspected animal, extreme- care sould be taken not to mutilate the head. The laboratory diagnosis'is made upon exam; ination of the brain and muttr.: lated heads increase the difficulty of establishing whether or not the animal was rabid.

STOP FROZEN PIPES! ly of the Happy Club; Mrs. Tax Book Ready By BO GIBSON Associate County Extension Agent The "Farmer's Tax Guide," written by Extension Service and printed by the Internal Revenue Service will be useful to all farmers this year because of detailed discussion of several :hanges in effect on income tax laws. Most of these changes apply to taxpayers generally, and S)ey are particularly important to farmers. Some of the changes in internal revenue laws are: (1) investment credit; (2) carry-over; (3) accelerated depreciation prohibition; and . (4). gain on depreciable property and others. Many fanners may hold their tax liability to a minimum by securing a copy of the tax guide and reading the changes and regulations. This will also help in reviewing the overall tax procedure. The new "Farmer's Tax Guide" is now available in the County Extension Office. This service for farm operators is conducted by the Agricultural Extension Service cooperating with the Internal Revenue Service. If you are interested in one of the new guides you may re-; quest one by mail or come by | the Extension Office and pick one up. Some of the guides will be placed in banks, gins and seed dealer buildings in BIytheville, Dell, Leachville and Manila.
