Beans in elevators, etc. were listed at 164 million bushels -- up 44 percent. Farm stocks were estimated at 120 million bushels compared with 90 million last year. As yet, there is as far as I know, no official forecast on the 1968 crop, but acreage is listed as up 3 per cent. It appears to me that this would be a good year to consider storing your beans• I called some of the area elevators this week and they were booking soy- beans at $2.35 per bushel the day I called, but this can change each day. The word from the soybean areas north of us seem to think that soybeans may be $2.20 to $2.25 per bushel this year at harvest• If the prices do drop to around $2.25 to $2.30 it looks to me as if it would pay you to put your soybeans in the government loan program this year. The national loan SELECTING EXTRA CUR- RICULAR ACTIVITIES With school starting for a new year, many of you will be thinking about what clubs, groups, activities should you join or partici- pate. Many times our inten- tions are much larger than our actual participation when we begin to select the clubs and activities in which we want to become members. Everyone should be a member of at least one club. This gives you op- portunities to have a feel- ing of belonging to a spe- cial group with common interests and goals, learn- ing to work together to ac- complish a task, sharing ideas with others, learn- ing new skills and abilities, overall broadening of ex- periences, meeting new and different friends, observ- ing different personalities and attitudes and being as- sociated with an informal education program. rate is Here in Ohio County it will be about $2.47 per bushel. If you don't have storageon the farm you might could afford commercial type storage if it is available. Usually an elevator will charge about 1 1/2 cents a bushel per month. If they $2.50 a bushel. • In making our selection, (after all, we cannot belong to all organizations) keep these things in mind: (I) time available - remember your school studies and church activities then plan for other activities, (2)se- lect an organization that will supplement your Cipating in an Extension 4-H youth program and find learning can be fun. Par- ents agree that it is an en- joyable activity, but also know that it is one of our nation's most effective in- formal educational pro- grams. One out of every six adults in the United States is a former 4-H'er. Most of these are lead- ers included in 400,000 public spirited men and women that serve as vol- unteer local leaders. These are leaders as- sisted by Area Extension Agents who in turn have at their fingertips the vast stores of knowledge, re- search and teachings of the State University and the U. S. Department of Agri- culture. These leaders ad- vise and assist 4-H'ers in planning and carrying out the many projects, activ- Ities and opportunities in the program. How can you take part in 4-H? 4-H is democracy in action. You elect how you can best participate. Some boys and girls have a corrr- blnation of ways In which they participate. The term "4-H" is much more In- elusive than "4-H Club".

Kentucky dairy farmers on the question of an assess- ment on milk produced for commercial sale. Enabling legislation for the measure was passed by the 1968 General Assembly. According to Com- missioner Miller, all Ohio County dairymen who pro- duce milk for sale to a commercial firm and those who share In the proceeds will be eligible to vote In the referendum. Voting time will be between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the Ohio County Courthouse. The balloting will be un- der the supervision of per- sonnel of the Kei~tucky De- partment of Agriculture. A simple majority is re- qulred for passage of the referendum. Funds collected under the assessment will be admin- Istered by the American Dairy Association of Ken- tucky. The ADA has been certified by the Kentucky State Board of Agriculture as the agency to handle the program. The assessment funds are to be used to promote the sale and use of milk and dairy nroducts through advertising and promotion. They will be levied at the rate of four cents per hun- dred for Grade A milk E ARE NOW LOCATED ON HIGHWAY 231, FORMERLY THE SPUR ATION, BETWEEN HARTFORD AND BEAVER DAM.

Soil Loss Formula A rchie 13. Gragg Gives New Look At Erosion % A system known as the Universal Soil Loss Pre- diction Formula is now being used by the U.S. Soil Conservation Service to give farmers the answer to a big question "}tow much soil is being lost?". The formula which was developed by the Agri- cultural Research is now being by the SCS in the states East of the Rocky Mountains. The main advantage of the formula is that it gives researchers a tool for es- timating erosion losses more quickly and more precisely than previously possible. In light of this finding, researchers are revaluating previous esti- mates. Researchers, for ex- ample, have found that rainfall effects on soil movement depend on storm intensity and kinetic energy of raindrops• This splash erosion combines with tur- bulence and run off to carry soil particles away. Consequently, a simple measurement of total rain- fall alone does not measure the damage done. Using rainfall and storm characteristics gathered from weather stations, maps have been prepared which show the rainstorm- soil loss relationship for various parts of the coun- try. Protection against soil erosion by crops has also been given new emphasis. It is now possible to eval- uate more adequately the benefits of specific crop rotations and production methods. Results show that crop yield levels are par- ticularly important. Yield levels reflect the combined effects of crop canopy density, root growth, water use and or- ganic matter available to the soil. Management techniques and fertility programs which lead to higher yields, play an im- portant role in reducing soil erosion. If you think you grow big tobacco, take a look at this tobacco, grown in the good old days twenty years ago. Pictured here are Mr. Earl Cox, right, and Mr. Frank Farmer housing the golden crop on Mr. Farmer's farm which is now owned by Mr. and Mrs. G.E. Fequa. Mr. Cox and Mr. Farmer worked as helpmates for each other for years, as their farms joined and they lived close to each other in the Jingo community• Ill health caused Mr. Farmer to retire and sell his farm. He now resides at Dundee while Mr. Cox still lives on his farm and operates it. Mr. Cox is married to the former Miss Oakley Roach and Mr. Farmer is married to the former Miss Josie Coyhill. Both were of the Jingo community. Mr. and Mrs. Cox are the parents of six children: Lela Moore of Sulphur Springs, Madeline Finley of Madlsonvllle, Lurlie Hoover of Hartford, Route 1, Nadine Smith of Owensboro, Norman of Alabama, and Rayburn (deceased). They have seventeen grandchildren and three great-grandsons. Mr. and Mrs. Farmer are the parents of two daughters: Mrs. Pauline Dever of Sulphur Springs and Dorothy Dever of Evansville. They have six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Mr. and Mrs. Cox and Mr. and Mrs. Farmer will celebrate their golden wedding anniversaries within this year. and three cents per hun- dred for Grade C milk. The checkoff will be collected by the dairy plants and remitted to the ADA of Kentucky. Miller urged all dairy- men to participate in the referendum saying, "This is an important question for all dairymen to consider."

Many mothers are buying school clothes now if they haven't already. I'd like to offer these buying tips that may be helpful as you shop for permanent press garments. You can't tell just by looking at a garment whe- ther it is truly permanent press and will need no iron- ing. For this reason, check the hang tag or label for the fiber content• At pre- sent, the best permanent press fabrics are made from a polyester and cot- ton blend, ranging from 65 percent polyester and 35 percent cotton for light- weight fabrics to 35 per- cent polyester and 65 per- cent cotton for heavy- weight ones. Check the brand name. Your best guarantee of good quality is the name of a nationally - known fiber producer, fabric manufac- turer or retail store. Check the seams, pock- ets, plackets and zippers to be sure they lie smooth and flat--puckers won't come out in laundering. Check, too, for wrinkles. If a wrin- kle is "baked In" when the finish is applied, it is just as permanent as the pleats and creases that are "baked in" on purpose. Look for good tailoring Boundaries Set and an overall neat ap- pearance. Unless the gar- ment has a just-pressed look when you buy It, it will not have a just-pressed look when it comes out of your dryer at home. Be very careful about fit, because alterations are difficult. Permanent gar- ments cannot be lengthened or let out satisfactorily-- the old seams and hem lines are "baked in" and will still show after alteration. Garments can be shortened or taken up, but the new edges cannot be sharply or permanently creased. Finally, check the color. Streaks and mottling are not desirable. Checking the labels or hang tags is the best guar- antee of quality in clothes. Labels on good garments give the following infor- mation: the generic or fam- Ily' name of the fiber, com- pany name or identification number, percent of each fiber in the fabric unless less than 5 percent, coun- try of origin if not United States, fiber trade name and laundering instruc- tions. If a hang tag does not have cleaning instructions, ask a sales clerk. If she doesn't know, be careful with this purchase. Be es- pecially,careful with gar- ments with leather or fake leather trim. Some are washable in cold water, some are sponged clean and some are dry-cleanable. Be sure you know which treatment your garment requires.
