It is impracticable to fiffht it with contact in.cticides, such as nicotine sulphate or kerosene emul sion, not only because of the prohibi tive expense involved but also be cause this pest often feeds in posi tion where It cannot be reached with auch sprays. In the control of the green bug the old saying that "an ounce of preven tion is worth a pound of cure" is most strikingly Justified. In the southern half of its range the green bug is de pendent largely on volunteer grain for its existence from the time the crop of the current year is cut until the young grain is above the ground in th? fall, or even until the following spring in many cases. It naturally follows, therefore, that if the volun teer growth is destroyed the insects must perish in large numbers for e2 GENUINE "lULL" DURHAM tobacco makes 50 flood cigarettes for ,0c MV?V f . . , turf, -. want of food, and experiments have shown that this is indeed the fuse. The most important control measure for the green bug, therefore, is the destruction of all volunteer giuin, especially oats and wheat, during the period from midsummer to early fall. This method is of the utmost im portance in Texas, Oklahoma, Kan sas and Missouri, where serious out breaks may originate at any time and jweep northward throughout the wheat belt states. It will not do for merely a few growers to adopt such measures, but they must be put into practice throughout large areas, wherever the grern bug winters in numbers, if satisfactory results are to be ex-, pectcd. The volunteer grain may bej disced and plowed down or otherwise destroyed during the period mention ed above and some other short-season crop planted or the land fallowed : until the next spring if the blowing or drifting of the soil is not a fac tor. Unless grain growers are willingj to co-operate and put into effect , mecsures for the destruction of vol unteer grain, it will be difficult for the Federal Department of Agricul-i tur to expend further money to ad vantage for investigational purposes in connection with the green bug! p.ublem, because the eradication and control of the pest rests to a very considerable degree with the grow ers 'hcmaelves, as is shown by the exhaustive investigations already conducted by the department. Destroy volunteer grain during the summer and early fall. Do not de pend upon the hax.ard of the weath er to protect pain crops from the green bug. Obtain the co-operation of neigh boring growers in putting such meas ures into effect, as individual efforts may be in vain. (Farmers' Bulk-tin 1217) Treatment of Maage in Hogs. Mange in hogs is quite common in some sections of the country at the present time. The mange is contagi ous where hogs come in direct contact with animals that have the disease. .Many different dtps are used for curing mange but the crude petro leum dip is the most effective. The crude petroleum dip is the only one that can he depended upon to eradi cate both lire and mange at one dipping. When crude petroleum is used no heating apparatus is needed. The oil does not apparently injure the hogs if properly ctrcd for after dipping. Freshly oiled hogs should not be left in the hot tun or should not be allowed to chill. Melraee Ceeaeration Celebrates The Melrose Co-operation held its annual stock-holders meeting and picnic on last Friday and Saturday. Kains prevented work on the farms and .practically eveiy one in that part of the county as well as people from all over Curry county attended the picnic and enjoyed the program. A line program of sports was ivcn each day. Mr. C. A. McNabb, state marUeting specialist gave an address Saturday on cooperative marketing, A pres sure cooker canning demonstration was given by Mrs. S, J. Wrigh', Home F.conomics demonstrator of the Puim Bureau. An ope;i air moving .dure show of agriculture and entertaining pictures na given Saturday nU'U by County Agricultural Agent. Two full day' piogram was given and a tine free meal was served each day. consisting of pte, cal', pickles and oth'" things. Melrose Co-operation is to be congratulated on the success of entertaining at this big event. C. A. MoNa.b Marketing. Mr. C. A. McNabb. State Market ing Specialist spent Friday and Sat urday in Curry County and assisted farmers in a few communities on marketing problems. In his address to the farmers at Locust Grove on Friday and Melrose on Saturday he said: The farmers of the Southwest. are overlooking one of the most important features in their farm problems. It is the general rule that the ones who are fartherest from market produce the least, we are a long ways from market and tha at tempting to product grain in large quantities. Marketing a crop through live stock is generally the most prolit able. Farmers have overlooked a great opportunity for increasing their profit in raising hogs. There is a great demand for feeder hogs and Curry County can produce them cheaper than tliey can be produced in the states east of us. The market is higher than on fat hogs and cost of production with our feed in less and the freight rates are much low er in proportion. The farmers in New Mexico who are in the custom of growing stock nogs have made great success and there is great op portunity for many more. In raising hogs as well as other live stock, we have overlooked our most important crop. Our best adapted pasture crop is sweet clover which can be grown here as well as any where. 1 have never seen a soil too wet or too dry, too hard or too light for growing weet clover. It is the greatest soil builder known. Farmers should try out sweet clover on a small plan the first year or two until they have learn ed to handle it and after that their success is sure with sweet clover and live stock. MRS.

They call the Ford a real "necessity" in their busineess. Ask us for a copy of the "Ford A Husiness Utility." Head what pleased owners say. It will cost you nothing. l.uilt of tough Ford St'el with the pver-depeiulal.de Fold motor transmitting power to the aluminuni-bronsce wortu-drive, with demountable rims and pneumatic tires, front and rear- to gether with the mechanical simplicity, have helped to give the Ford Ton Truck the lowest possible operating and maintenance cost.
