1*»BAY, AUGUST tt, 1958 (AMCT COOTIEH PAGE 8EVB!f REVIEW»»° FORECAST Confusion Hits New High And- Drought Aid Picture Snarled As 16 Counties Cut From Aid By "HAROLD HART LITTLE ROCK (AP) — The federal drought aid program again is snarled in confu sion as far as Arkansas farmers are concerned. The mystery continues as to why 15 southeast Arkansas counties were cut off the drought aid list Tuesday by Secretary of'Agriculture Benson. The 15 counties concerned are Arkansas, Clark, Dallas, Desha, Drew, Grant, Hot Spring, Jefferson, Lee', Lincoln, Lonoke, Monroe, Phillips, Prairie and Chicot. The government says Chicot was listed in error because it wasn't eligible for aid in the first place. State agricultural officials are at loss to explain why the other counties were removed. They say they are investigating the situation. It rain'ed a little this week in Arkansas, but there still is need for a good general rain. The State-Federal Crop Report- Ing Service says a hot, dry week reduced soil moisture perceptibly. Fair to good progress was reported in the cotton crop. Rice prospects are favorable. But,' says the report, "Feed crops, hay and li|Sures are deteriorating over TOde areas with the central and northern counties hardest hit." Rep. E. C. (Took) Oathings of West Memphis says the Department o'f Agriculture is making a survey of irrigation needs in those states not covered by the Pope- Jones Act before recommending to Congress states which should be allowed to take advantage of the\ act's provisions. The act covers 17 states west of the Mississippi River. It provides government loans to farmers in uiose state to build irrigation reservoirs. Gainings has authored a bill to extend provisions that the Pope- Jones Act to all states. But he says there is a good chance that the department will reco.mend extension only to those state which are hit by periodical droughts. That would include Arkansas. Rice especially has felt the nd for irrigaion watr.

Pat them dry and store them in the refrigerator In a vegetable crisper or a plastic bag. Salads will be crisper, too, if they are made as last minute jobs. When you make a salad, out or break vegetables Into bite size or larger pieces. Always add dressing at the very last minute and use only enough to coat the vegetables Then toss them lightly. Salads may be served from a or on individual plates. However you serve it, make it attractive. Most people like to arrange salads on greens. Finely shredded cabbage, spinach or mustard greens are just as attractive as lettuce Be sure that neither the greens nor the salad extend beyond the edge of the plate.

This school, which is sponsored by the Missouri College of Agriculture, the Missouri Cotton Producers Association, and manufacturers of mechanical cotton pickers, is designed to give operators of m'echan- ical pickers practical information the correct operation of their machines. The "students" will hear agricultural specialists discuss cultural practices, defoliation, weed control, harvesting for better binning and other practices to improve mechanically picked cotton. At the afternoon session, picker owners and operators will be divided into groups according to the make of their machines.

Strict low middling, same length should bring 32.66. Low middling, same length, will bring only 29.16. It looks like that is a lots of encouragement to try and pick a good grade of cotton. What About Alfalfa? The alfalfa research program at Osceola has reconfirmed ou vest but you will still have to go through it with a combine. An improperly adjusted combine can lose more bean for you than the drouth. Recent studies in Iowa showed an average harvesting loss of 16 )er cent of all the fields studied.

I believe preferred seeding dates in this area would be around September 1 to September 20 Oeorge Hale »t Burdette plans to cut all those soybeans in front of his house, and bale them for hay. Of course, the main reason for that Is that his wife wants alfalfa growing all around the house, and who wouldn't, with such a nice house out in the field? P. S. — Do you want to bale Mr. Hale's soybeans on the shares? He doesn't even have a hay baler. False Optimism? I even hear some farmers offering to bet the county will make more cotton than it made last year. Do you suppose they are right? It lem, except the dry weather bug. The dry weather is forcing a lot of cotton to "cut out" and without rain I ain wondering if, we can make very much more cotton between now and the 10th of September. Bean Leaf Beetles Bean leaf beetles increased rather rapidly in soybeans during the second week of Anugust. A few fields have been damaged enough to require poisoning. There is a very wide difference of opplnlon about how much leaf damage is necessary to soybeans before yields become affected. To say the least, a great deal of leaf surface can be removed before any noticeable reduction in yield occurs. A pound of pure DDT to the acre giving very satisfactory control of the bean leaf beetles. Test Your Soli This is the best time of the year soil samples and have them an- ilyzed.

Of course, he was after live bacon in the form of thirty 60-pound feeder hogs for the annual greased pig scramble at the Farm and Youth Fair Aug. 25-29. The high price of pork wa« the reason. Acker said. Farmers Just won't sell. In the event, young boys chase the pigs, catch them, feed them until December 'and collect the profit. Acker was happy to announce though that the price ot beef was cheaper and the calf scramble will be held is scheduled. pendable when the soil is dry of in condition to plow. Who's Craiy? Have you seen the 200-acr« field of cotton in front of Charlie Abbott's house and just east of Bly- thevllle? It looks like all of his seed came up and the crop has never been chopped or thinned. Ha controlled grass and weeds completely by dragging a heavy spike tooth havrow across the .cotton raws three or four times. That is a treatment a few degrees worse .han the use of a rotary hoe. If you think cotton can be too thick or that thick cotton will not yield iroperly, then I suggest that you. watch Mr. Abbott's field.
