COLUMBIA, Mo.—"In our national economic pattern, agriculture is in. an inferior position because it cannot control total production or influence the price of its output in an unprotected market," said William C. Etneridge, chairman, department of field crops at the University of Missouri. Etheridge made the statement at the 16th Annual Conference on Public Affairs at the Principia College, Elsah, III., last night while speaking on "What Should Government Do for Farmers." Since agriculture is in that position, it does not, and cannot share equally'with industry and labor in the national income, he continued. The results of this are always bad lor agriculture and are periodi- COLTJMBIA, MO.—Plaintain and otiier spring-germinating broad- lealed plants in lawns can be killed by an application of 2, *-D in early May, says D. D. Hemphill, horticulturist at the University of Mis- aouxi. This spray also helps prevent crabgrass seed germination. However, fall is the best time to •pray for control of most lawn weeds. This is particularly true of fall- germinating plants such as dandelion, henbit and chickweed, he notes. These are best controlled by spraying right after the first killing frost. Dandelions bloom early and most years ttoey are in full flower before many people think of spraying. Potassium eynate, phenyl mecur- ie acetate and arsenical compounds • are chemicals that have given fair control when applied according to; manufacturer's directions, Hemphill! says. 1 cally bad for industry and labor. Therefore, Btheridge believes government must subsidize agriculture in some way that will bring agriculture a fair share of our national prosperity. The direct support of prices, control of farm markets, optimum distribution of farm commodities through domestic channels and the wide expansion of farm exports are the more obvious forms of aid to agriculture. Other points brought out by Etheridge were that the government should support an adequate^ program of research in numerous problems—such as farm production, farm marketing — Including the development of new markets, utilization of farm products and development of new commodities from raw farm materials. "Also, the government should continue and increase ite support of agricultural education now carried on by the Land Grant Colleges, a system of education originated by the Congress and long maintained by Federal and state government," he concluded. from all the state winners, will receive gold keys and all-expense trips to the 1954 National 4-H Club Congress in Chicago. "The program not only encour ages former club members to continue their interest in 4-H. bu most important, provides present- day youth with living examples of dependable, purposeful citizenship,' Noble stated. In addition to agricultural leaders, many public officials, business and professional men and women were former 4-H'ers, he pointed out. "We consider it a singular pri\'il- ege to cooperate with the Extension Service in this program," said S. L. Nevins. president, Mathieson Agricultural Chemicals Division. Anyone interested in 4-H Club work is invited to nominate candidates for the alumni award. Nom- nation forms may be obtained from county extension offices in all participating states.
