Seed! of most all klndi ·rt high In price and limited in quantity. But there are some reasonably priced seed which arc food, quick feed makers. Hye gram i» reasonably priced and will do a good job if planted in the corn middles early In September. Coopcrators with the Boll Conservation District arc urged to try at least a few acres j where it can conveniently be grazed after harvesting the corn. '. Cultivate through the corn to till what weeds and grass may be ttl .the corn. Do this cultivating shallow and about a week or ten days before planting ryegrass. I suggest seeding 20 to 24 pounds fer icre broadcast. It leems to me broadcast could be done with cyclone seeder about three rows. After using a double shovel or Gee Whiz scratch through to cover seed is not needed. I recall the results of an ex- perimi'.nt which one of the Alabama stations carried. It bears out the feeding value of rye for dairy cows. Winter rye pasture produced 1,160 mlcrograms of Caratcn to the quart of milk; oats pasture It; peanut hay 256; alfalfa hay 114. The experiment showed a limited amount of early grazing from a cover crop man be worth more to the dairyman than the extra nitrogen and organic matter otherwise obtained. Corn fields need cover crops seeded this fall to prevent ero slon. Ryegrass will do that and provide added feed to corn (talk fields after the corn Is gathered. The seeding of cover crops in corn fields Is practical, economical and will prove profitable.

In fact, research carried on at the University's agricultural experiment station has shown that wh*~n a screw-pressed cottonseed meal Is supplemented with six per cent of fish meal, the result- Ing protein supplement Is nearly as adequate for growing and fattening pigs as one composed entirely of fish meal. However, Prof. K. L. Stephen* ton 6t the inimal Industry depart meht at the University cautions swine producers that the regular commercial hydraulic or solvent- processed cottonseed meal should not be fed to pigs. It Is extremely toxic, he states. All of the pigs receiving such solvent or hydraulic cottonseed meal fed as 43 per cent of the experimental ration died before the end of the study, and those receiving hydraulic-protested cottonseed meal it the 20.9 per cent level died soon after the study was over. The screw-pressed cottonseed meal used in the research was prepared experimentally by thi Southern regional research laboratory of the U. S. Department of Agriculture at New Orleans. The meal was supplied to the Arkansas experiment station so that its value In swine nutrition could be studied. It Is not yet available commercially, according to Stephenson. WEEKLY BROILER REVIEW The Northwest Arkansas market continued to show strength this week. Supplies ot heavy si»: remained scarce with lighter weights barely adequate for tht fair to good demand. Most of the week's supplies were moved t 1'A to IK pounds. Prices at the close were one cent higher, and the mostly price was one cent higher. In the Balesvllle-Floral area the market was steady to firm, closing firm on Thursday, August 13. Heavy sizes were short of the good demand throughout the week. Lighter weights were in barely adequate supply. Prices at the clos? were one cent higher.

The following report came to us from a dairy farmer living three miles west of Fayetteville: "I planted five acres of oats (traveller) and crimson clover August 27, 1951, using three bushels of oats and 10 pounds of'clov- er seed per acre. I fertilized with 400 pounds of 5-10-5 per acre. "I got 75 days of winter pasturage by 20 head of grown cattle, over half of them in full milk production. They were fed grairv and poor quality hay during this time.- By figuring 'the increased feed or decreased milk production when they were taken off, 1 determined that they were getting a third of their feed from this pasture. "I sold 8,000 pounds of milk pet month and cut 139 bales of hay. I lost fully that much from hay blowing down." Let us analyze this successful farmer's statement. He sold 8,000 pounds of milk per month or 20,000 pounds In two-and one- half months. This wail mid-winter milk when prices arc good. At six cents he realized *1,200. A third, or f400, came from the pasture--then over $100 in hay--a total of over $500 from five acres of crimson clover-oat winter pasture. Then he had his land for a summer crop--sudan grass, Ics- pedeza, or a truck crop. These figures are not exaggerated, in fact they are under slated. Proper winter pasture of laic August or early September plant- Ing of oat* and clover, vetch and rye, wheat or some combination of these is just as profitable or more profitable than permanent' orchard grass and ladino clover meadow. This farmer not only obtained over 1500 from his five acre;; of crimson clover-oat pasture but he laved a lot of hard feeding and a lot of manure hauling. Then, too, all his manure was dropped on the fields rather than to be washed out of his lots into the drains. The only criticism of this splendid program might be that had he had a larger he could have profitably used 18 acres instead of five with 10 cows. It is now only two weeks until September 1, 18S1. Let us have more grain pasture for our dairy and beef cattle in the 1153-53 winter. It's Time To- Pick all fruit left on trees after harvest and pick up al fruit from (round. Fruit left in orchard will breed disease and Insects. Try DDT for blister beetles. Watch for late blight on tomatoes. Be prepared to take advantage of a small rain or cloudy weather In making fall plantings of vegetables. Watch for red spider injury. Use (lusting ti'lphur. Fertilize and water perpetual roses well to stimulate growth for more fall blossoms. Be courteous on the highway. Courtesy saves lives! Plan to use supplemental irrigation for getting up fall oats and other crops for winter pasture. Overloading Of Circuits Sakl Cause Of Fires Farmers are overloading electric circuits or failing to replace or repair worn and frayed cords, and the situation has reached such heights that farm fires from electrical causes are moving rapidly to the number one spot. "The trouble isn't original installation; it's usually what happens later," said W. M. Hitter, chairman of the Arkansas Mutual Insurance 2 0 0 t h Anniversary Committee. He cited, as an example, the farm home wired for lights and a few light appliances but which, in a matter of only two or three years, has seen the addition of a washing machine, ironer, dishwasher and possibly an electric milking machine. "These 'heavy-duty appliances obviously are going to draw a lot more voltage and wattage than originally specified in the wiring," he said. "As a consequence, more circuits may be needed, and protection should be given by extra fuses and circuit-breakers." Hitter urged a four-point program for farmers to prevent costly fires: 1. Check the "load safely minimum" each time you x buy and install another appliance. 2. K^cp a continuous check on all extension cords which might suffer damage from machinery, animals or constant use. Replace damaged cords at once. 3. Have an inspector check any wiring you do yourself. 4. Never use heavier fuses than those called for in circuit wiring diagrams; replace fuses with new ones, not pennies.

Society Figure Awaits Hearing On Vke Charges Playboy Released On $50,000 Bond After Arrest New York-(/P)-Society Playboy Mickey Jelke awaited a vice hearing today as his arrest sent New York party girls fleeing town.
