FRIDAY, AUG. 28, 1958 BLYTHEVIt.I.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS COTTON BEGINS TO MOVE — Gins In the BlytlieviUe area began handling their first bales this week. Wednesday, Jake Darby (left), Clear Lake farmer, brought in a bale to the B. D. Hughes Gin Co., on Broadway. Mr. Darby and R. D. Hughes, Jr., are pictured with the bale. Yesterday afternoon, the West Side Cooperative Qin on West Rose began ginning nine bales of cotton from the O. W. Coppedge farm. The Coppedge cotton was raised by Herman Bombalaskl. (Courier News Photo) On Missco Farms bj By KEITH J. BILBREY County Agent It's Inevitable, and . awful. You. have heard such statements as. "That's the endgate", 1 "Finished", "Snafu"-, and "You're going to miss I me. when I'm gone." It all applies I here. Mrs. Butonne, your Extension Secretary In my office for eleven years, is resigning to rear a family 1 for that durn black headed hus- I band of hers. No—she is not : com- 1 ing back. She and the family want more home life—and I don't blame *fee nice people. Sxirs. Jacks (formerly Miss Bu- I tonne Jaggers) has been my right I arm and most of my brains. Whatever you thought about me as | County Agent, good or bad, you will think a lot less of me now. Mrs. Butonne Is a very wonder- I ful" person. She is most kind, con- I siderate, efficient and cooperative. 1 Her intelligence, smiling person- I ality, and knowledge of everything I In the County Agent's Office will j be sorely missed. .1 know that hundreds of farmers I would say, "Best wishes, Mrs. Bu| tonne, and thanks for a good job irel] done." Vetc*i Seeding: Time The pinclpal value of vetch is as I a soil building crop. When planted I early in the fail and turned under 1 at the proper time in the spring, I hairy vetch returned average in- I creases of 340 pounds of seed cot- I ton per acre in research studies I conducted by the University 6f Ar- I kansas, College of Agriculture. J Time of seeding:—Vetch may be E.- * fc———— planted any time from the last of August until the last of October. Rate of seeding:—plant 25 pounds of seed per acre. Seed inoculation:—Either' inoculate vetch seed or do not go to the trouble to plant it. Inoculated vetch draws its nitrogen needs from the.air. Non-inoculated vetch draws its nitrogen needs fro mthe soil and therefore becomes a soil depleting crop. How Many -TurnipsT Plant lots of 'em. We may all have to eat turnips before this winter is over. It's a funny thing but a farmer never seems to know how many turnip seed to buy when the wife sends him for them. One ounce of turnip seed will plant 200 feet of row. Two pounds of seed drilled will plant an acre. If you are planting to produce turnip greens for the canning factory, broadcast five pounds of seed per acre. Freezer Operating: Cost If there is anything I appreciate around the house, it's a home freez- full of chickens, strawberries, sweet corn, beef steak, etc. I saved money for two years to buy a. home freezer, then when I had enough money, I started wondering how much extra electricity it would use. Here Is the answer, my freezer costs about 93 cents a month. More than 2,000,000 Americans will be living:in by the end of 1953.

Good Food Beef provides the protein needet 'or all ages for the building anc •enewing of body tissues. Beef (as well as other "complete" proteins] enhances the protein value of grain >roducts and protein-rich vegetables when eaten with them. Protein of the less expensive cuts of lean j beef is also a valuable source of I B-vitamins and of phosphorus and iron. Beef liver, kidney and heart, in addition to being sources of protein, are important for some of the vitamins and minerals. Liver, with its iron and copper content, is an Important blood builder. Save Time, Labor and Money By using your range wisely and caring for ft well, you save time, labor, electricity and metals. Use kettles and pans with flat bottoms and close fitting lids. Use little or no water to speed up the cooking and cut fuel cost. This also reduces the loss. of those vitamins and. minerals that dissolve easily in water. Use pans wide enough to cover the hot part of the unit. A small pan on a large unit wastes fuel. If your range has a deep well cooker (as many of the newer models do), make full use of it for many of the daily cooking jobs. It is particularly good for baked beans, pot roasts, cracked cereals, stews and other foods that require long cooking at low temperatures. Use the oven to full capacity whenever possible. It takes little more fuel to cook several foods in the oven than it does to cook one. In planning oven meals select foods that require about the same temperature and cooking time. Cleaning the surface of your range is an important job. Wipe up any spilled food immediately. Those containing acids may discolor the finish or remove the glaze from the porcelain enamel, making the surface hard to clean. Wash the outside with a mild soapy water. Rinse and dry well with a soft cloth. Allow the oven to cool before cleaning it. Remove racks, brush any charred food from the oven and clean the lining with mild soapy water. Rinse and dry well Wash racks and dry. It's Time To — Plant seed of hollyhock, galllar- dla, oriental popples, and other perennial and biennial flowers. Keep crabgrass out of the garden. Save the moisture for vegetables. Plant cowards, cabbage (plants), Chinese cabbage, carrots, turnips, kohlrabi, rutabaf~s. Be tolerant of the beliefs and opinions of others.
