(AP) — Agriculture advisors warned Southern Illinois farmers today the region's recent drought may lead to increased erosion of top soils this winter. The University of Illinois Dixon Springs experimental agriculture station said heavily grazed pastures, harvested fields and winter wheat crops are particularly threatened, and suggested some stopgap defenses. The Weather Bureau said Southern Illinois generally has received only two-thirds of normal precipitation for the year. Some areas had record rainlcs. periods of more than 40 days In September and October. Pastures grasses, lacking rain with which to keep growth at a pace equal to consumption by livestock, have suffered from what one official called overgrazing. After parched pastures were stripped of cover in October, the U.S Agriculture Department opened reserve grasslands to livestock in 1.1 counties. Advisers said pasture in most other counties have fared little better. George McKlbben, an agrono- most at the Dixon Springs station, said an unlikely December warm spell accompanied by gentle, steady rainfall could stimulate growth of ground cover. But with the odds against a late-season growing period, he recommended farmers postpone spreading ol fertilizer and soil conditioners which might be washed away by winter rain. Harvested corn fields, he said, can be given some protection against rain by shredding corn Aubble with rotary-blade mowers. Harrowing barren fields will reduce the culling power of running water. Little can be done, McKibben said, for recently seeded wheat which in many areas has grown less than an inch. Oberlin College, in Ohio, became the first college to admit both men and women in 1833.

Weekly Food Review B THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Pork grabs the spotlight at many of the nation's supermarkets this weekend.

In Western markets, whole­ sale pork loin prices arc off as much as three cents a pound. Pork chops, bult roasts, sau sage and bacon are other features. Broiler-fryers are also widely featured this weekend, with one chain offering them at 25 to 29 cents a pound in the New York area. Other main course attractions include beef, veal and lamb.
