Future of Beef Be^ef cows have increased to new record highs. In spite of crashing beef prices last year, a severe drouth and high feed prices, the total number of cows on January 1 was 1,300,000 head more than January i, 1953. Beef numbers have been on a steady increase since 1940. Cutworms Cutworms are exceedingly thick in alfalfa and other legume crops. They may appear in some cotton fields, particularly near vetch and rye strips. They are easily controlled over night,, since Toxaphene was invented. Apply at rates of one pound of pure toxaphene per acre with ground machinery, when spraying rows only. Use 2 to 2V, pounds pure toxaphene when covering all of ground.

Ad Litem. 4/23-30-5/7-14 Distressing: Time Farmers are going through a period of real uncertainty this week. The very cool weather and strong wind on Monday morning, May 3, made hundreds of thousands of acres of cotton in the Mississippi valley look very very sick. The cold wind seemed to do considerably more harm than the light frost on that same Monday night. Some hope was expressed for the cotton survival but I can't find any old time farmers that would say for sure that the county's crop would be aU right. there is a resonable supply of seed left in the country in 'base some replanting is necessary. Army Worms Army worms, as well as some cut worms, appear general now in most all fields of small grains. Don't expect toxaphene to give as quick a kill on army worms. evaluating results. Two pounds of pure or technical toxaphene per acre is minimum dose for army worms. Personally I would use nearer three pounds pure toxaphene if I had a heavy population of army worms in small grains. been completed, but the day's activities will include a tour of the experimental farm to allow visitors to see latest research in livestock and field and horticultural crops. The morning will probably be devoted to the farm tour, with the speaking program scheduled .for early afternoon. Provisions will be made for visitors to buy lunch at the farm.

A native of New York state, Mr. Doane has spent most of his life in the midwest. He is a graduatepf the University of Missouri, where he served on the College Agriculture Staff for a number of years.

COLUMBIA, Mo.—Insect and dis- eaese control are two subjects discussed in a new publication, ''Grow Your Vegetables," just recently released by the College of Agriculture at the University of Missouri. . Clyde Cunningham and Victor Lambeth, horticulturists at the University and authors of the circular, say insects must be controlled in vegetable production. The two men suggest a weekly dusting or spraying program for insect control. A combination of methoxy- chlor and lindane will kill most insects. However, after edible portions of vegetables are formed they suggest a rotenone dust as a control. On the subject of disease the standpoint of preventaon than cure. There arr a number of soil borne diseases that connot be controlled by spraying. Listed in the bulletin are three principals involved in disease control. They are: One—buy only disea- ase-free plants; two—use disease- resistant varieties; and, three—use proper spray programs. Other subjects discussed in the bulletin are garden size and location fertilization, fall plowing, planting plans, one and two-area garden plans, cultivation, mulching, irrigation and succession plantings.
