Begin Cotton Insect Control:
You have heard the old adage,
“An Ounce of Prevention Is
Worth A Pound of Cure.” "This
is true in cotton insect control.
A new concept of cotton insect
control 'has proven very suc
cessful and efficient In prevent
ing insect damage and loss.
The new plan has two phases.
The - first phase begins as Soon
as the cotton plants attain eight
leaves. That is right n0w,,, -. Be
ginning immediately, make four
insecticide applications at five
day intervals. Then stop. This
should kill the weevils coming
out \>f hibernation before theyj
lay any eggs. One female weevil |
can lay about 250 eggs, ,at least j
half of which produces females, j
Each of the young females can'
do the same. Therefore, When 1
k you kill one hibernated female
early you haVe prevented possi-,
bly 15,000 or more female
weevils for the season.
t. The second insecticide phase
begins about July 25, when the
first brood begins field migra
tion. Make at least four more
applications at five-day inter- i
vals. This should continue un-I
til squaring is complete. Be
tween the two periods, examine
the field each week and treat
if the punctured square count
reaches five percent. t
Use 15 pounds of dust per acre
per application of either 'of the i
following insecticides. I suggest
that you vary insecticides to
take care of insect resistance.
Insecticide combinations reeom
mende dare Aldrin 2 1 /4% and
DDT 7%, Dieldrin 2% and DDT
7%, Guthion 2'4% and DDT >7%,
Heptachlor 2%% and DDT 7%,
Malpthion 10% and DDT 7%,
methyl Parathion 212%,. and
DDT 7% and Toxaphene 14%
and DDT 7%. Individual insec
ticides recommended are Endrin
2% and also Sevin 10%. These
materials may also be obtained
as spray concentrates for mixing
with water. Follow the manu
facturer’s recommended rates.
For red spiders and other
mites, use Ethion 4% or Tri
) thion 2%. Apply 25 pounds of
dust per acre.
Extension Circular No. 429-61,
“Cotton Insect Control,” is avail
able at your County Agent’s of-
Jfice. Call for a copy if needed.
If cotton is worth growing it is
worth protecting against insects.
Let’s make the most of what we
have in this cotton crop.
Peanuts: Nematode injury is
Showing up in many peanut
fields. The application of one
gallon of actual nemagon per
acre has made 600 or more
pounds of peanuts when ap
plied early to growing peanuts.
It will not injure the plants
and you will notice a difference
in plant growth in about two
Local dealers carry nemagon
under the trade name of Fuma
zone 44E or Fumazone 70E. Fol
low the manufacturer’s recom
mended rate of application. Ap
ply the fumigant in the soil six
inches from the plants on each
side and four to five inches
deep in the soil.
Thrips, a very tiny yellow in
sect working in the buds, are
causing crinkled leaves. Dust or
spray plants with Aldrin, DDT
Vor some other recommended in
secticide. To prevent this trou
ble, Aldrin, Heptachlor or some
other soil insecticide should
> have been applied just ahead of
the first cultivation.
Plan to control leafspot di
sease this year, it pays well.
Make three or four applications
of copper-sulphur dust at two
week intervals beginning in
early July. Start with 15 lbs.
per adre and gradually increase
the rate up to 20 lbs. per acre
as the plants grow. Spray ma
terials are also available this
year. Remember—apply every
12 to 14 days.
Chemical -Weed Control On
Peanuts: Chemical weed and
■grass * control on peanuts is
successfully this year.

casipnal sprig of grass was be- :
an eleven-inch band treatment

the spray bands accurately over
the planter track, some grass
came near the peanuts. How
ever, he was able to delay cul
tivation for three weeks. Band
treatment should be made with
same tractor when planting so
that bands will be properly

'Jaycee Team Leads
jin Little League
t Heated Race Develops
! For First Place In
Tht second week’s play of the
l Little League marked a heated
i race for fiist place. The most
> improved team in the league is
' the Jaycees. During the first
week of play they were unable
to win a single game but during
the past week they won five in
a row. Some of these wins were
by one-sided scores.
The most exciting game of the
[ week was a Jaycee win over the
i Corvairs by a score of 3-2. All
the runs in this game were scor
led in the thrill packed fifth in
| ning with no other scoring in
i the game. Brian Twiddy got on
base with an error. Robert
Smith followed with a walk.
The next batter struck out.
Then the hero of the game, I
Herky Billings, hit a home-run, 1
■“scoring three runs. The Cor-1
t vairs came back with two runs!
,in the bottom of the fifth, but
I the rally fell short. A large
measure of the Jaycees success 1
can be traced to the consistent
hitting of Bill j*Mitchener, Mike

nounced this week that they
have been selected as distribu
tor for a new process Western
U. S. Choice Beef, known as
Pro Ten process.
Swift & Company has devel
oped through research a method
for injecting papain, an enzyme
from the fruit of the papaya
tree, into live cattle. This ten
derizer circulates in the blood
stream, remains dormant until
the meat is brought to cooking
This is essentially the same
as applying meat tenderizer to
a tough steak, but since it is
factory controlled and is dis
tributed over the entire carcass
of the beef byway of its blood
stream, the customer is always
assured of even tenderness, even
in the normally tough cuts.
Swift is now marketing this
product through seven of its 49
packing plants. P & Q Super

distributor for this improved
