Much of JJprlhwo'st Arkansas received excessive rainfall last week, continuing to delay land preparation and planting; County agents with the Agricultural,; Extension Service informed the State Crop Reporting Service that many counties had little ·activity until Saturday. Clear weather'over the weekend dried out soil so-much planting was under way by Monday. Indications are that crops in-'general .will' be planted somewhat later than usual. Crawford County's report from E. H. Prltchett, Jr., showed spinach harvest should he practically completed by the end of this week. Strawberries arc looking good there, with harvest expected to start next week.. Stone .County's strawberries should begin to come In in another week.

In i! new bulletin," "Careers in Soil Cori»ervatiOn,"-'the'department paints a picture of a new and trowing-Jield for college students and others trained in agricultural engineering, forestry, agronomjs wildlife biology and conservation:' The bulletin says there is "BO much to be done" if -he.nation is Lo feed its rapidly increasing population. It points out that there is little new land arid, that existing farms must carry the burden. "Soil conservation rimpr/ means iinx the land to produre its maximum of Ihe-food-and fiber we need;" it. says. "Long-range conservation. must be well planned and executed In accordance with sound, scientific principles.'Each acre should be used for.the things Picking should start shout May 10. From Benton County H. B. Russell reported, "Strawberries In full bloom; apples la full bloom. Prospects above normal for both crops. Small grains there are beginning to boot, with prospects above normal." In Washington County green- buss arc stUI doing extensive damage in small grains. Livestock arc making good gains on good pastures, especially where tame grasses and legumes arc'growing, said Carl E. Bosc,' : county agent. "Lespedeza and other hay crops already · planted growing fair in Franklin County," said Carlos C. Hu'ssell, assistant agent.

Associate professor Xzih Mc- Ncal, of the agricultural engineering department, was in charge of the work during the latter years, and prepared' the report. He points out that -a number of new wood preservatives now on the market were not available when Ihe test was bcjjun in 193S, and therefore were not included. Some of these will be included in other tesls. Pine specimens, each 'or\£ and one-half by orie and one-half by 36 inches, were set In the ground to a depth of 18 Inches in what came to be known as the "fence post graveyard." They Included five different wood types. Fifteen different preservative treatments, plus a check or no preservative treatment, were represented. All specimens were tested each spring and fall during the I B and one-half years, and failures were noted. The three treatments that proved most effective were (1) commercial pressure ftreasote; {2) heating the specimens for two hours in oil, and cooling; and (3) heating the specimens for two hours in a mixture of half coal tar creosote and half spent crankcase oil. None of the pressure creosote specimens had' failed at the end of 15 and one-half years. Of those treated with seven and one-half. per cent zinc chloride and oil, 83 per cent were intact at the end of the test; while of those treated with coal tar creosote and spent crankcasc oil, 81 per cent remained. The latter two treatments can be done on the farm with equipment the farmer btlilds himselfor has built by someone with welding equipment. Although none of the other treatments approached the top three in effectiveness, all treated specimens lasted longer, on the average, than the specimens that we're not treated-. All - the .check specimens had failed at the .end of the iesi, and only three per cent remained after 12 years.

WEEKLY BROILER REVIEW The weekly · review of specialized broiler markets as reported by the University of Arkansas Institute of Science and Technology and the Dairy and Poultry Market News Service of the U. S. Department of Agriculture: Northwest Arkansas: A weak market characterized the broiler market this week. Heavy supplies were slow to clear as der.-.ana continued light. Towards the close of the week, trading activity increased slightly, under the new low price level. Prices at the' close on Thursday, May I, as compared to Monday, April 28, were one to two centi lower. The mostly price was two to four cents lower, Batesville-Floral area: This market, was also weak this week, closing weak on Thurslay, May 1...Demand was light the first part of the week, but improved toward tile close. Supplies were reported lighter the latter part of the week, and some buyers reported supplies, of broilers and frye-s over three and a quarter pounds sen- etwlly well cleared. Pric s at the close were -unchanscd. The mostly price was one cent lower. In all other major areas, week- nesses and lov.'er prices y.-ere quite general in the commercial broiler raising areas this week, as the heavy supplies were barely clearing or were in excess of the light to good demand. . Texas areas led the decline, with prices mostly three to five cents lower than last wee!;. All other areas followed this trend, and closed at prices one !· three cents lower. Bill Potter, new head tennis coach at the University of Florida, is a graduate of. Pomona College, Calif. Northwest Arkansas Farming . By John I. Smith , '.Within a' few days Northwest Arkansas people will have an np- turiily;to.witness the blooming of crimson clover. Unlike alfalfa and red'-'clpver, crimson clover is an annual and blooms but once. Then too, the: word "crimson" means just thit--crimson, not just pink. Fortunately, the use. of crimson clover in our farming^ operations is. how on a rapid..increase. The plant itself is no different from the crimson clover that your father or · grandfather might have abandoned years ago. Why is it coming .back ? Is it being. brought--back-just for the beauty of the thing? It's return to the farming operations ilnges on. two development's: '(1) the general increase in grass .a'nd ivestock farming demands a clover more adapted to our depleted soils than either alfalfa or red clover, 'and (2) tlj« agriculturists have by. simple selection developed' several hartj seeded varieties of crimson clover that reseed .hemselves year in and year out ike lespedeza and, thus, have an elraient of permanence. ; As recent as two or- three.;y,ears ;o I could not havg.Jtbld'.^Jperson where one'singgle 'patch 'of 'this Jbver was located in Washington County. Now there are hundreds. They will be showing their crimson blossoms as early as Sunday, May 4, and will be in full blossom by. May 11. It is' a worthwhile sight to see. In driving to ,ake Wedington one ··will notice beautiful patch on the Ewirig lackson farm just at the bottom of the hill gning/.down to Illinois River. That patch .has.- Already: filled (less the shrinkage)'an-80 on silo. Please.notice'the amount of ground used' (that mowed)'in filling this silo. 'The-crimson clover is accompanied w i t h ' o r chard grass, and the two together, make a fine combination for ensilage, hay, or grazing. May the acreage of this clover increase further in the years to come. - T It's Time To --· Start your spraying, schedule I for the control of flies on dairy cattle. '' " ' · · ' ' ' · Follow peach spray .schedule to prevent disease. Buy plants for the garden that are free of disease. Keep garden tools clean and sharp for fast easy Work. Side-dress growing vegetable crops with nitrate of sod,a or ammonium nitrate. Keep close watch for cutworm damage in the garden. Defrost home'freezer before hot weather. These suggestions come from the county and home demonstration agents! More information is available at their offices where University College of Agriculture! publications may'also be obtained. 1 Communists Slain / Maqila-f/PJ-Tcn Communist-led Huks were killed in May Day clashes with Philippines army troops.
