Dameron, assistant county agent. Eight acres of vetch following cotton In the fall and winter of TO5-3G produced the best coUon on Mr. Edrington's farm In 1930. One hundred and sixty pounds of vetch was sown in the fall on eight acres and after making the proper .growth was plowed under on the 23rd day of May. Mr. Edrifigton planted this eight acres In cotton on May 27. After securing a 'good stand, the cotton died because of heat coming from the rotting of the veteh crop. He failed to let the vetch rot enou»h before planting. On June 15 this field was replanted and another good -stand came lip and produced the best cotton on his farm. Mr. Edrington secured two fains on this crop. The first came in the Hist week-of July and the second on the first day of Sen- lember. '• Due to good spring cultivation the total cost • cf producing this crop—not including the seed or harvesting—was $15. The total production was 12 bales of lint cotton. Mr. Edrington this fall has planted vetch in his entire 193G cotton fields and assumes that lie will Increase the yield for 1937 Picks Big Cotton Crop Following Soy Beans j Mr. J: L. Ballard of Manila, Ark , has just harvested 9.898 pounds of lint cotton from n\'-, acres of mea. Eured Jan-J. According to Mr. B«l- lard. this yield was secured on on- of the oldest pieces of farm land Hi that community. Due to crop rotation with soybeans intcrplantcd with corn, Mr. Dallard was abtf to secure an average yield of 5G5 pounds per acre. Mr. Ballard states. "11 pays to ro- i late." This crop rotation program I fits in well with the soil conscr- I vatlon program which .was enacted by congress and put into cltcct for the first time during (h c 1036 crop yeiir.

Potential customers, in,addition to farm and urban homes, include filling stations, community stores, cohir .immlty rccreationalcenters, schools^, churches, cotton gins. large irrlga- j tlon pumps, coal mines, and sawmills. - '..'.' The 21 counties will be grouped as, follows for the projects, including the number of miles of line for each project, and the number of users: Lonoke, Prairie and Pulaski counties-360- miles; 1.340 customsrs. Howard. Hempstead, Nevada, and Columbia counties—410 miles; 1,750-customers. North Sebastian, South Sebastian, Crawford and Johnson counties—650 miles; 2015 customers. Woodruff county—120 miles; 355 customers. Jackson county—300 miles; D50 customers. Cleburnc county—60 miles; 225 customers. Craighead county—250 miles; .825 customers. North Mississippi and South Mississippi counties—275 miles; 715 i customers. A Miller county—110 miles; 350 cus- ' tomers. Logan county—180 miles; 625 customers. The prevailing idea that exhor- bitan't rates must be charged for ele«trlcity to serve the farmers,' even in thickly settled areas, has at last been broken by the Rural Electrification Administration thru the national program of farm elec- j trlficatlon, Mr. Karns said. This federal agency is a result' of years of effort on the part of leading American farmers, through Farm Bureau Federations, Farmers' Union, Oranges, and other farm organizations, who 'insisted that the United states government help its farm and urban people se- snre the benefits of electricity that. Prior to this time, have been withheld from them. EVERY PURSE!
