FARM BUREAU NEWS We are very pleased to note incli nation on the part of most of the .far mers to fight the grasshopper pest this year, iney nave appeared in large numbers from some eight to twelve miles farther west than last year. The results obtained from the poison bait method last year substantiates our be lief that crops and seedings can be saved by its use, but it will not give results unless it is presistently, con sistently and intelligently used. The cheap grasshopper poisons that have been used in former years, are extre mely hard to obtain. We have had no money with which to buy them early and are doing our best to secure a sup ply at this time. In the meantime, the only poison we can recommend that is just as good is paris green. It will do the work but is more expensiVe. If a few dollars invested in paris green will save your seeds it is a mighty good in vestment. You cannot afford to lose it whatever the cost. This is the method of mixing the poison bait. THE POISON BAIT - Mix dry one Bushel of sawdust- and one pound of poison. Dissolve a scant pound of salt and a half-cup of black strap molasses' in a gallon of water. Mix with the sawdust and poison and add all the water it will take without running off. Scatter this as you would sew grain wherever the hoppers are beginning to do damage. Better do this the last thing at night so the bait will be ready for the hungry hopper in the morning. It will not do the work after it is dried out. Remarks: Old sawdust is better than fresh sawdust. Paris green and white arse nic are the kinds of poison to use. Do not use arsenate of lear or arsenate of calcium they will not give satisfacrtory results. , Numerous complaints have been received recently of damage being done by the striped cucumber or mel Ion beetle as it is called.

MILLET WILL MEET HAY CROP SHORTAGE Can Be Planted Until Early July Sweet Clover Should be Cut Early and High. In response to questions from many farmers of the state as to crops that may be sown at this late date in order to offset the shortage of the hay crop, C. R. Megeeof the M. A. C. Farm Crops Department is sending out word that Millet may be safely sown as late as the first week of July. Sorghum is also mentioned as a possibility for a late crop to meet the hay shortage. "One of the most dependable late crops is millet", says Professor Megee. ."Common Millet will mature in from GO to 65 days. , The Golden is later in ma turing, requiring from 85 to 90 days. Yields of from one and one-half to two tons per acre were secured the past season on the college experiment sta tion field when millet was sown the latter part of June. Millets are usu ally sown with the ordinary grain drill at the rate of from 25 to 30 pounds per acre. "Sorghums may also be used for this purpose, the Early Amber variety being best adapted to Michigan conditions. Good yields are usually secured by drilling solid with the grain drill, at the rate of from 35 to 40 pounds of seed per acre. CUT SWEET CLOVER EARLY That sweet clover for hay should be cut early, just before the blossom buds appear, is also pointed out by Megee. "Sweet clover becomes very woody after blooming, and is not nearly so palatable and does not make as good a hay as when cut at the earlier stage. This fact is overlooked by many far mers, since the alsike and red clover are usually cut after the blossoms have appeared. Sweet clover does not propagate from a crown as does alfalfa, and consequen tly the stubble should be cut high enough so that a number of branches will develop . into the second crop, which maybe used for either-hay or seed. If the crop is cut very close to the ground these branches will be removed and the second crop will .not develop." CITY TAX NOTICE City Taxes for the City of East Jor dan for the year 1920 are due and pay able from July 1st to July 31st inclusive without penalty. On August 1st a collection fee of 2 per cent will be added and an addi tional 1 per cent on the first day of each succeeding month until taxes are paid. Office will be open ' evenings on Saturdays and Pay Days only. G. E. BOSWELL, City Treasurer. Time changes all - things except your honest-to-goodness opinion of yourself. Consumers Aided By Farm Assn's Growers' Marketing -Associations Tend to Stabilize Food Supply; That the present widespread - orga nization of Michigan farmers carries with it future benefits for the city. con sumer, as well as for. the agriculturist himself, is the opinion expressed in a recent interview by R. J. Baldwin, Di rector of Extension Work at the Michi gan Agricultural College. The view held by some business men that co operation among the ..farmers of the state is responsible for the threatened food shortage and for the high price of eatables is refuted by: Mr. Baldwin; who points out that grower selling asso ciations reduce the cost of marketing and tend to stimulate and stabilize pro duction. , - "Neither the farmer nor the consu mer has complete information in regard to the cost of production nor the cost of marketing food stuffs, and conse quently each has misimpressions and between them there are many mis understandings", says Director Bald win. "The consumer says he is suf fering under high food prices. The producer knows that the prices he receives will scarcely assure, him a profit "The farmer remembers that under the individual selling system the spread between the price he received and the price paid by the consumer was very great, and that neither the producer nor the consumer had any contact with the forces which established the ori ginal and final price. He has seen prices remain low while the season's crop was being bought by dealers,and rise when the bulk of the crop was in the hands of the jobber. The lack of collective bargaining power has weake ned the farmer's morale and under minded his faith in his business, resul ting in unfavorable rural life conditions, and exodus from the country, an un stable condition of agriculture, . and, cousequently, a decreased food pro duction. - "The consumer has no reason to fear the collective power of the producers of food, but rather should rejoice in the growth of their organization and look forward to the future with more con fidence and optimism because of the stimulus they will give to efficient, standardized jroduction. Sucn results cau already be observed from the wortc of the "California-Fruit Growers Ex change", the "East Virginia Coast Pro duce Exchange", and, in Michigan, the 'Michigan Potato Growers Exchange" and the "Michigan Fruit Growers Fe deration." "All producers organizations have included in their constitution efficient production as one of the primary func tions. All of them cooperate closely with State and Federal forces working toward economic production of stand ardized articles.- No organization has yet expressed an intent to control and limit production, except perhaps fhe cotton producers. The controlling fac tor remains as always "the law of sup ply and demand", and the expression of this law is ultimately the price paid for the product. "The future food supply is more cer tain when prices encourage production than when. the returns for the crop leave the farmer too small a margin to finance further productioh operations. "The chief concern of the food con sumers of America should not be whet her food prices shall decline, but whet her there will be sufficient food to sup ply the needs of the people. The only safe insurance for the future is that food production be made a profitable business. The creation of marketing organization is an effort on the part of the farmers themselves to insure the future of their business, which is the basic industry," Agriculture."
