Friend said the worm was the plain v^ ordinary variety and not the better known pink boll worm, which the valley has been fighting the past 10 years. He advised farmers to check their fields to determine whether he worms are attacking their crops. He said the worms, which often invade tomato fields. attack bolls and squares. I'-JIANK ANALYSIS As visitors from Australia to the Stales, we were somewhat overawed by your country. Every town seemed fjO lay claim to someone or something unique. But one night we: found ourselves in a tiny southein town—Just one store and a handful of weather-beaten houses. H&U- jokingly I asked the old store-keeper if this town had anything for which it was renowned. "Why, yes," he replied, "I guess this must De the most, unimportant town in the whole United States, ma'am."— leader's Digest.

Fedora] experts In the extent and use of our national resources make that prediction. They estimate, in an annual report of (he Department., of the Interior, that \vp will have 20.000.000 more pnojilo by .1070. They say that we can find the land we need N riBht here nt homi-. but thai, it will mean some gigantic ho'--r- jobs for the federal ijov- ernmeii;. In the west [vreat riverp race through land PO dry it hardly \vili support cactus. In the .south'great swamps support nothing more than cypress and alligators. Land-use men in the Dcpaiiinent of the Interior say dry land must be ii rigatcd, swamps must be drained. There is wants even on the good land. We let 000.000.030 tons oi' topsoil wash into the Gulf of Mexico each year. . 'Major needs for irrigation, the land-use men Uiinl;, lie in four main areas: the basins of the Columbia, Arkansas and Missouri Rivers and in California's Central Valley. The Bureau oi Reclamation, which directs such programs, says -its irrigation projects paid off handsomely through the war by boosting ouv food supplies. There is a running disagreement behind the scenes over who gets to use government irrigation water. The law limits it to small holders of no more than 100 acres. But in his annual report, Secretary of the Interior J. A. Krug says that this .law is "occasionally attacked 1 ' by "porponents of tho'large farm pal- tcrn" who want water, too. Federal reclamation officers think public money should be spent so i'.. "helps tho greatest number." K.rug's report holds that, communities of small holders are healthier and that more stable, towns grow up p.roYsntl thorn thnn would spring up around huge land corporations where the workers would be little more than tenants or sharecroppers. The Department of-tho Interior hopes to keep Uie 100-ncre limit. These irrigation projects r;rc not o bonus. They are financed so they pay back tho government in f>0 to GO ,vear,5. Power from the dams p:iys off part of the cost. The fanners themselves pay the rest. There's another type of land the experts would like, to help along: grazing land. They want to use airplanes to seed it \yitli good grass. They say the airplane method would cost only $2 an acre as against $4 the old way. They think we'll need more and better grazing 'lund if we want to go on eating meat at the present rate. For the' west, the huge irrigated crop projects, they say. would mean new income to nut a base under the present three sources: cattle, mincr- L\ls and lumber. In the midwest irrigation would Keep more people on the land. In' the south the drained swamp lands, broken into small farms, might give a new chance to the workers the department expects to te displaced in the next 20 years by new cotton machinery. National wealth is being washed away by rains, choked out by population and .lust plain ignored in four areas under U. S. jurisdiction. Ala-ka, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the Rio Grande Valley. The Bio Grande basin is in such a bad state the experts say it,; "whole economy \vill be destroyed" unless something is done. That's over an area of 185,000 acres, 1,800 miles long, through Colorado, New Mexico, Texas and tho Republic of Mexico. Brougtln and over-grazing has laid much of the earth's surface bare to rains that produce flash floods, waterlog some acres, leave others .arid, fill up irrigation channels with silt. Flood control is needed, • say the experts: dams, drainage systsws, re- puirs to old irrigation systems. The experts concede the Rio Grande valley is a complicated problem. They suggest five government agencies—interior, agriculture and war departments, federal power commission and the international boundary commission—get together with the state governments to change the picture. The area could be a national gold mi'n° if v/y r.'..'. short of grazing New Yorkers spend $3,000 daily in. telephoning; for correct time.

" "Need anotiitr KOC ho Demand for Combines Still Highlight oi Texas Wheat Program The domain! for combines is still a highlight of the Texas wheat program, stated a bulletin from the Cooperative Extension Work, Extension Service for the State of Texas. The bulletin said that the demand 'for combines continues throughout the Texas Panhandle. The supply of railcars is being exhausted at numerous elevators and grain is already being oiled on the ground in large quantities. Trucks tare, unable U> get dumped quick enough to maka hauling profitable and some' 'of these trucks have already started baqlt home. However, the bulletin continued, it is expected th,at enough trucks will remain in. tho harvest areas to create a surplus throughout the harvest. There Ls still a surplus of labor even though in some' places experienced reliable workers are able to. find work readily. The bulletin, also, stated that five percent of Gray County wheat is rea,dy for harvest, and that 50 combines will be needed by Roy, who \vi\b-. «i woi lr this time. Roy got hUv> one.
