SO. VP)--A 20- year-old Virginia 4-H youth and 41 year old professional from Wisconsin won the titles of North America's sheep shearing kings today. William M. Ramsey of Howardsville, Va., a lanky youth saving up for a' college education, won the national 4-H shearing contest at the International Livestock Exposition with* a score of 94.65 points out of a possible 100. Melvin Walker of Dalton, Wis., who denuded as many as 12,000 sheep a year, snicked the fleece from three sheep in around seven minutes to win the professional shearing crown. He scored 94.92 points. Ramsey's best time for a single sheep was 4 minutes, 36 seconds, while Walker turned the trick in two minutes, 14 seconds. There were eight finalists in each of the two contests,' staged on a raised platform in the arena of the International Amphitheater. Ramsey, who graduated from high school in 1949, lives on a 219- acre farm. The stock includes 35 Hampshire sheep. His victory gives him a $200 college scholarship and he said he hopes to enter Virginia Polytechnic Institute to study agriculture. The youngster has been shearing sheep at home for three years. He won the Virginia State shearing contest this year. Walker has shorn as many as 198 sheep a day in his 21 years at that occupation. He gets around 40 cents a sheep currently. His victory brought him a $100 prize. made in open session and for the ,,"'.-, . T _..ui:_ . Jtc-fclect JLiutz Comment By County Agent By HENRY R. SHOEMAKER lownty Agent Maurice S. Ahalt, Charles H.

Specialists from the University of Maryland have warned orchard owners that the season is at hand when mouse damage to fruit trees can be expected. The most eflective control measure recommended is the use of poison bait. Zinc phos- phide, which is distributed by the Rodent Control Fund, University of Massachusetts, is the most effective poison to use. A supply of this material is available at the County Agent's office. Real Problem Directors of the Frederick County D.H.I.A. are confronted with a serious problem in maintaining the testiiiR program in Frederick County. Their troubles were further aggravated by the announcement that Ralph R. "Bob" Gouker will report for duty in the armed forces on December 7. Bob has been a valuable member of the testing staff in the county for the-psst three years. He has carried a full load of 26 herds during his entire period of service. He has been a reliable and capable worker. His place will be difficult to fill. The Directors hope to secure a replacement from the next training course at the University of Maryland which will be held December 3 to 15. Production records have become an essential part of the dairy industry 'in the county. A curtailment of the testing program at this time would cause serious losses to dairy farmers.

Vital To Farmers "Yet , the fact is that electric service--far from being a luxury-is even more vital for farmers than for urban people." the pamphlet continues. "For the city family, electricity means comfort and convenience. For the farm family, it means that and much more. It means production power x x x. "The development of electrified farming has been so rapid and so unobtrusive that many people have little idea of the productive force electricity injects into American agriculture at this time when unprecedented demands are being made upon farmers." The department says 800,000 farms still are without power. Many of those connected with power lines are not getting adequate service, it adds. Farm consumption of electrical power has increased 500 per cent since 1940. As a result of this spectacular increase, rural power facilities are being taxed to the limit. The department says agriculture's need for more power is emphasized by the-fact that it is losing much manpower to the armed services and city industries. Farm employment- dropped 351,000 last year and now is 1,380,000 under the 1945-49 average of 14,732,000 workers. WEIGHT BY LOCATION A man weighs more in Spitsbergen than he does in Brazil.

In recent years, the damage to legume hay by spittlebugs has become increasingly serious. Their feeding on clover and alfalfa has hurt both the yield and quality of these crops'. Experimental spray ing. for spittlebug control was undertaken -this year for the nrst time by -the University of Maryland. These- tests were conducted on several ferms in the following counties: Kent, Hartford, Montgomery, and Washington. Nineteen plots of red clover that were sprayed averaged 397 pounds more cured hay per acre than unsprayed plots. Sprayed alfalfa, yielded an average of 112 pounds more cured hay per acre tban unsprayed fields. Copies of Fact Sheet 41 can be obtained from county agricultural agents or from the Bulletin Room, College of Agriculture, University of Maryland College Park, Maryand. % Advertising Group ' Honors Md.
