Mrs. Wagy said her trip to the conference covered 20,000 miles of travel by train and jet. The slides showed Hawaii's beautiful flowers and places of interest; the Fiji Island's colorful rituals, including the changing of the guard and the native dances. Mrs. Wagy pointed out that New Zealand has more sports fields and arenas, per pc alation, than any other country in the world and that business on Saturday and Sunday is at a complete standstill while shopkeepers attend athletic contests.

Suggest Warren Tour Mississippi Beef Cattle Group Proposed Project MONMOUTH —A letter has been received by Stan ley Sims, Warren County farm adviser, from the county agent, Lee Thompson, of Marx, Miss. He stated that his farmers would like to come to Illinois and visit some cattle feedlots. Warren County is one of these that they would like to visit. He stated further "we raise a lot of good quality cattle, both Angus and Hereford. Our season is long with plenty of grass, plus oats and wheat for winter grazing. Our producers sell calves at weaning time, with some being carried over through the winter on winter grazing and then sold." Thompson said ' sippi farmers are much interested in establishing direct markets with feeders in this area. He suggested that they would like to take from eight to 12 farmers to this area about the middle of November and discuss livestock feeding and buying with feH'ot operator.':. Warren County cattle feeders interested in this type program were asked to contact Sims' office in Monmouth. A proposal a : so was made to make a return visit to Mississippi- Plot to Be Visited The corn seed dealers in War­ ren County are making preparations to harvest the corn demonstration plot, located on the Bruce Killey farm, near Roseville. Heading up this demonstration is Abram Hornback, president of the seed dealers in Warren County, with Stuart Mayhesv, vice chairman, and Art Ray, secretary-treasurer of the group. One of the big problems, says Hornback, is the weighing of the 140 different plots. There are 70 different hybrids planted in the plot by 18 different companies. Several corn combines will be used to harvest two of the four rows planted of each variety, as well as two rows of each of the four rows of check corn planted next to each variety. Crop Yields Released Warren County had an average wheat yield in 1963 of 48 bushels per acre. This is an increase of 14 bushels over 1962 and previous years. Oats yielded exactly the same in 1963 and in 1962, that being 56 bushels per acre. The 48-bushel yield, evidently, is the low figure when compared to other farmers in the area who had right around 70 bushels per acre. The use of nitrogen, super phosphate, or available phosphate, and potash is most essential to high wheat yields. Farmers planning to plant wheat should consider discing in their fertilizers in the fall. Nitrogen, however, can be applied in the spring. To Combine Plot The soybean variety plot located on the Frank and Donald Kirkpatrick farm at Roseville was harvested Sept. 27. Yields from the eight varieties will be released next week. The varieties planted are Lindarin, Lindarin 63, Harosoy, Harosoy 63. Hawk eye, Hawkeye 63, Shelby and Adams. The rest of the field will be in a variety known as Shelby.

Insects Invade Houses During Cool Evenings By LEO SHARP (Fulton County Farm Adviser) These cool evenings of early fall are bringing uninvited house guests. They are field crickets, grasshop* pers, spiders and other insects looking for a nice warm home. If they can find an opening in the foundation, around windows or open doors, they soon set up housekeeping in your basement or other parts of the home. Crickets are mostly a nuisance, only occasionally chewing on starched, stored clothes. These other insects, too, may become a serious nuisance in the home. A thorough spraying around the foundation two or three feet from the house, I found last week, will give excellent control. Recommended sprays are 2 per cent chlordane or V% per cent dieldrin solution in water. The average house will require three to five gallons of spray to go around it. Thjs spray will not hurt the lawn but should not be applied to shrubs or flowers. You may use one of these sprays in your basement; but, it should be in a ready-to-use oil base spray. Chlordane and Dieldrin will also prevent an invasion of orien­ tal roaches and can be used to control ants. As soybean harvest nears completion, many of you will plant wheat in these bean fields. Since your soybeans have been utilizing the soluble fertilizers, it is important to use a good complete fertilizer. This will get your wheat rooted down to go through the winter. Only a small amount of nitrogen is needed in the fall, while soluble phosphate, such as triple or super phosphate is very necessary. Potash, too, is important to produce a high yield of "plump" kernels, Commercial fertilizers such as 5-30-15 or 7-28-14 or 5-20-20 at 200 pound per acre should be adequate for a fall treatment. Where a soil test is available, I suggest using a fertilizer that fits your needs. If a blended fertilizer is used, I suggest mixing enough nitrogen for 10 to 15 pounds per acre plus 100 to 150 pounds of triple phosphate and 50 to 100 pounds of 60 per cent potash. This recommendation applies where no soil test is available and legumes will be seeded in the wheat. What about additional nitrogen on your farm? Wheat responds to extra nitrogen up to the point where lodging occurs. For spring top dressing, apply nitrogen when the wheat greens up. On level fields, you may apply \% on frozen ground otherwise let the ground thaw to prevent runoff loss. Nitrogen can be applied effectively up until the wheat is 8 to 10 inches tall, From 20 to 40 pourtds of total nitrogen per acre is uecommend« ed for most of Fulton County soils. Subtract fall applied nitrogen from to total amount. This will be what should be used in the spring. Our light color fimber soils should receive the heavier amounts, while our prairie soils should receive the light nitrogen applications. Safety at Harvest Our busy harvest reason, means long hard days working around equipment that can cause serious accidents. Even though this equipment has many safety devices to prevent accidents, we can't take away the need for safe operation. Fatigue, worn, tattered clothing, and carelessness all contribute to farm accidents. Let's all work toward a safe harvest in 19163.
