The results of this work have been published in Bulletin 144 and are available for free distribu tion to Missouri farmers. The experimental work with forage crops for swine has shown: (1) the kind of forage crops best adapted; (2) rotations which will produce the largest amount of pork per acre of pasture; (3) the kind of grain ration to feed on the different kinds of pas tures for best results; (4) that the saving of grain resulting from the use ct pasture crops is from 30 to 50 per cent. j Ihese results point the way of still further decreasing the cost of pre paring hogs for market. Several publications on pork production have been issued. These will be invaluable to hog feeders during the present cri sis when feed prices are abnormally high.

FRANCOIS COUNTY BANK In some parts of Missouri swarms of young grasshoppers are beginning to do great damage to truck, field and orchard crops. These young hoppers are easily killed by sowing poisoned oran masn over the lnlestcd fields early in the morning just as the in sects begin to feed. T. J. Talbert of the University of Mi ssouri College of Agriculture of fers the following formula for mak ing poison bran mash: Paris green or powdered arsenate of lead, 1-2 pound; wheat bran, 10 pounds; oranges or lemons, 2; molas ses or syrup, 2 quarts; water, 1 1-2 gallons. Mix the bran and poison to gether dry in a tub or barrel. Grind or cut the oranges or lemons and add the juice and pulp to the water. Then add the syrup or mollasses and stir. Finally add the water containing the syrup and fruit to the poison bran and stir the whole mixture thorough ly, after which it will be ready for trial.' use. a aamp, coarse, crumbly mash , is desired. The material should not. be sloppy. This mixture should be sown broad cast like wheat or oats and the pro portions given in the formula should sow from two to three acres. If the work is properly done the first sow ing should kill from 60 to 80 per cent of the young grasshoppers. A second sowing of the poison bran mash may be necessary in a week or ten days if the grasshoppers contin ue to come in swarms from neighbor ing fields. In most cases, however, one sowing will be sufficient. Washington, August 19. In a state ment issued tonight by W. S. Clifford, director of the Council of National Defense, a summary of the work done by the council was given in order to meet the attacks made by critics of the council in Congress and elsewhere. Among the achievements of the council cited by Mr. Gilford are the lollowing: "Active direction and adaptation of the railway facilities of the country tor war purposes; further development of sources of supply for all kinds of war munitions and their component parts; unusual progress in a compre hensive aviation program; material assistance in the construction of the new army cantonments; adaptation and increase in the telephone and tel egraph facilities; co-operation in the production of leather and textiles and metals for the use of the army, and assistance in Handling the labor ques tion and in extending medical prepara tions for war work." Mr. Gifford's statement in part follows: Brings Experts into Service. "One of the most strikintr aecomp lishments of the General Munitions Board during the past two months has been the assistance it has rendered to the Quartermaster's Corps, through the Emergency Construction Commit tee, in getting under way the great task of building the new armv can tonments. By reaching out all over the country and bringing into consul tation experts in every kind of work involved in the piojeet, the commit tee has been able to make available to Col. Isaac Little, who is in charge of the work, al the latest professional information on city construction, with the personal judgment and opinion of many of the nation's most successful architects, sanitary engineers and city planners. The problem of storaee facilities for the cantonments is now engaging the active attention of the Storage Committee of the board. There has been no better example of the value of the council's functions as a connecting link between the government service and the willing energy of the nation's civilian industry. "The work of the railroads, com bined under a voluntary centralized or ganization through the council, has been directed in war-time channels through Chairman Willard of the Ad visory Committee and the War Execu tive Committee of Railroad Presidents, co-operating with the council. Under the scheme, to quote from the recent statement of Mr. Willard. the roads have made all transfers of troops on schedule time without serious disrup tion of regular traffic. Car Shortage Reduced. "In spite of an admittedly serious shortage of freight cars and terminal facilities, moreover, through a gene ral effort throughout the country to develop added efficiency in freight car use, the effective supply of coal cars has been greatly increased and gen eral freight traffic has been effectively the largest in the history of the coun try and has been constantly increas ing, but in spite of that the shortage of' freight care was reduced from 148,fi27 on May 1 to 105,000 at the end of June. "Through the efforts of the mem bers of the Telephone and Telegraph Committee the communication lines of the entire country have been put at the government's service and are now being centrally directed with war needs primarily in view. Perhaps no one thing has contributed more effectually than this to the linking together of all parts of the nation into a compact group, ready for unified action at the government's call. Communications Quickened. "Every town and hamlet can be reached almost instantly at all hours of the day and night with messages carrying the requests of the author ities at Washington. This applies not only to army and navy orders, but to the innumerable requirements of other departments of almost equal importance in modern warfare the mobilization of agricultural, indus trial and commercial resources. The whole country is in instantaneous touch with Washington through the organization of the 'wire service." "The Committee on Coal Produc tion has been constantly engaged in the work of stimulating production nr.d in arranging for an adequate sup ply of coal to meet the combined needs of the army and navy, the American civil population and to some extent the European allies. Through con ferences with railroad officials and shippers it has brought about a pool ing arrangement for the Atlantic tidewater region which already prom ised to do away with the waste in car and barge service under the old sys tem of individual consignments andj make possible a great increase m shipments to New England and the other Northeastern States. A simi lar arrangement for the Great Lakes and the Northeast has been in suc cessful operation for many weeks. "It has also been of material ser vice in the adjustment, of prices. Par ticular attention has been given to securing prompt shipment for all war purposes, both military ana maus- GOOD ROAOS ESSEN TIAL TO DEMOCRACY Democracies are dependent upon mutual understanding and trust among all concerned. These qualities of un derstanding and trust can develop on ly after a period of acquaintanceship and this must be the outgrowth of friendly intercourse, which, in turn, may be hindered or entirely cut off by difficulties of travel. It seems log ical, therefore, to believe that bad roads have an influence directly and harmfully on the permanency of dem ocratic institutions, according to Dean E. J, McCaustland of the University of Missouri engineering school. The early New England town meet ing was a source of inspiration and strength to democratic ideals. As the country developed and the population spread into the West, the solidarity of interest among the people was broken down on account of difficulties of travel, and the town meeting, ns an institution, passed away. The tel ephone and the motor car have done much to bring back a realization of common interests, and in no way can the cause of democracy be more per manently advanced than in making easy the possibility of travel and in terchange of ideas. No idea is of much value unless it can be communi cated to others. The isolation of farm life must be eliminated by the contin uous development of road building programs that will finally enable the people to get together easily. JOHN B.
