la a recent speech on the cotton
situation, Clarence Ousley, Assistant
Secretary of Agriculture, said that an
he sees the situation "no calamity
impends if we do not lose our head«,
lUI^OUUE 11 v* c uu uuv luer- wua uv «*ww,
and that he is more concerned about
the gathering of the crop than about
disposing of it
He offered a solution, even if there
is a surplus of from three to four
million bales, and says;
"It every farmer who raises 10
bales of cotton will put two in the
warehouse and sell the remainder by
installments from month to month
throughout the winter and spring in
stead of forcing it all on the market
at on« time, the difficulty in even its
worst aspects will disappear."
Ho thinks tnat if there is a surplus
of cotton this year it must be ab
sorbed by reduced production next |
year. Furthermore, he points out
that the Government did not ask for
tnat tae uovernmeni ma not *»* tvr
„y iuvt a «rop, and that in all fair
ness this fact must be recognized, the
crops having been produced because
tbe Southern growers refused to
heed the warning of agricultural lead
ers and economists.—L. 8. U. Press

SUGGESTIONS ON
SELECTING SEED CORN
Fi«ld Selection of Seed Means Grsator
Yield and Better Corn. i
-
Field selection of seed corn is of too
much importance to be left to the av j
«•rage laborer; it is almost always a
Kood plan for the farm owner to su- j
pervise the work. A great deal more 1
mrn will be pulled than is needed, and 1
ffi should be reselected in order to get
iRe ears that conform to a type.
'Theiw is no argument that can be
Fed against this kind of seed selec- '
gion," says A. F. Kidder, professor of
agronomy, Louisiana State University,
Bbecau#« it moans more corn and bet
ter corg. When field-selection of seed
t>«cotees more generally practiced in
Louiffiana some of the money that our
farmgr* nre now sending to the core
belt will remain at home.
"The ear should . be from four to
five feet high on land where peas are
to be sown in the corn.
"Long shanks and good ears are sel
dom found on the same stalk. The
shank should be sufficiently long, how
ever, to allow th« ear to bend over
when mature.
"All ears of corn not covered by
shock are apt to be damaged by black
weevil and the corn ear worm.
FIELD SELECTION OF
SEED IMPROVES CORN
Math More Profitable Than Selecting
From the Crib In Spring.
good corn should be selected from ;
gtalks standing where they grew, be- ,
cause only then, with certainty, can
peed be obtained from—
Stalks that have a tendency to yield
well, ae shown by the superiority over
surrounding stalks that grew under the
game conditions. Such seed inherit*
high producing power.
Btalks without suckers. Such seed
produces fewer suckers than s««da
from sucker-bearing stalks.
Storm-proof stalka with ears at a
desirable height.
geed corn should be selected as soon
as it matures, because—
Desirable stalks, especially early ma
turing stalks with hanging ears, are
then most easily found.
Warm, wet weather may cause ker
nels to sprout before drying.
If the selection is delayed the ears
may become infested with weevils,
grain moths, and their eggs.
It is as easy, more satisfactory, and
much more profitable than selecting
from cribs in the spring.— L. S. U.

Th,m Properly,
Tha Extension Division of Um
Louisiana State University, oo-operate
ins with the Bureau of Markets, is
encouraging sweet potato growers
throughout the state to store their
produce. This work is under the au-,
»
perviaioa of O. L. Tiebout, of the Ba*
« nit.iaUw nunia».v/l Kw ff Wf
toasion Division, assisted by E.
Gardere and Richard Neeom from tbe
Bureau of Markets.
The object of this work is primar
ily to aid the farmer in saving his
sweet potato crop and also is a food
conservation measure.
At present there are 4,000,000 bush
els of sweet potatoes produced ia
Louisiana with storage house« suffi
cient to adequately preserve appro»
imately only 800,000 bushels. Unless
sweet potatoes are stored properly
It Is a difficult task to keep them in
pood condition.

help can be secured by those who

LET SWEET POTATOES
MATURE BEFORE DIGGING
Crop Should Be Carefully Handled,
Weil Dried and Kept at Uni
form Temperature.
To keep sweet potatoes in good con-
dition they must be (1) well matured
before digging. (2) carefully handled.
(3) well dried or cured after being put
in the house, and (4) kept at a uni
form temperature after they are cured.
The grower can Judge when his
aweet potatoes are ripe by breaking
or cutting one of them and leaving it
exposed to the air for a few minutea.
The cut or broken surface remains
moist if it is not ready to be dug.
second essential, careful hand
p n g, should be observed in digging.
;
,
gathering, hauling, and unloading.
Sweet potatoes should be sorted in tha
field and gathered in padded baskets
or boxes to prevent bruising or break
ing the skin. The baskets or boxes
should be loaded on the wagon, hauled
to the storage bouse, and the potatoes
carefully placed in the bins. When
they are to be hauled very far, a wagon
with bolster springs should be used.
Sweet potatoes should never be
thrown from on« row to another, load
ed loosely Into a wagon body, or hauled
la bags, because either of these prao
tices will bruise them and afford an
opportunity for disease to enter.
The third and fourth essentials, thor
ough drying and a uniform tempera
ture, may be secured in a storage
house where artificial heat can be «up
idled. Tbe bouse must be constructed
In such a way that It can be thorough
ly ventilated when necessary and yei
be made nearly airtight in cold
weatber.
Write to the Extension Division,
Louisiana State University, for in
formation and assistance in properly
caring for your sweet potato crop.
POTATOES SPOIL WHEN

toss Should Be Handled.
Very few sweet potatoes stored ii
pits or banks ever reach the market,
for from 25 to 50 per cent 6poil, while ,
those that remain are not of good )
I quality, according to Farmers' Bulletin
700. This bulletin, the title of which
is "Sweet Potato Storage," describes I
in considerable detail the types of stör- I
i age houses that have proved success- •
ful and the proper method of hsnling I
sweet potatoes from harvesting tc i
marketing. For those growers wbe are i
not abfe to build storage bouses, fiirec- !
tions are given for saving the eweel

USE DISHES WHICH
CONTAIN LITTLE SUGAR
Sugar consumption in many bouse
bolds can be easily lowered not only
by giving preference to dishes which
contain little sugar or with which
sugar is not usually served, but als«
by the use of sweet puddings, or a
salad, in place of dessert. Sweet dried
fruits, such as dates, raisins or figs,
served with breakfast cereals will re
duce the sugar needs.—Extension Dfc
