The yrnup would be model- led alonu the linvs o( larm clubs in Oklahoma City and Tulsa For those interested in aifiliating with tl uroup. a merlins has been called for February 15 at Pcndi-r- graft's Cafe at p.m. One of the ollicials of Ihe Tulsa Farm Club will he present and it is quite likely ;he Ada uroup will officially organize at that time. Several people have been inter- ested in the movement, among them Dr Don Williams and Bill Thomp-on. Reivn'ly a meeting was hold at Dr. Williams' olfices" Several men from over the county attended. Attending Present were Bill Thompson. Dr. Williams. Ivan Blair. Harold W'inua.-d. linden.'k Ham. W. C. Wis-ley. Jimmie Thomas, Cy Mai- ley, anrl Gurley. At the outset, it was stressed that "he would not he a cat- tlemen's association, although it would certainly be of interest to cattlem< n. It was an organization whose membership was drawn from all thns-e interested in agriculture, farmers, poultrymcn. ranchers, d a i r y m e n, businessmen, etc.. might well a place in Aria. Many have felt that such a group might serve as a clearing house for certain information, r arketing statistics, credit pro- cvdures, etc. It would not be con- fined to the interest of one speuf ie group of individuals such i hog breeders, but would be consid erably more embracing. A case in point is Ihe recent push for cattle in the TB testing program uheti such a group could have gone a long way to securing the cattle with efficiency and dispatch. Speakers The group would probably nice once each month for a "dinner meeting. A speaker would be pres- ent. And. herein lies one of the big selling points, the speakers. Efforts would be made to secure, outstanding authorities in respec- tive- fields. One of Ihe first con-' sidered might be a well known, regional farm economist. Another consideration would be a spokes- man from the Farm Bank wilb up lo Ihe minute information on credit, interest, etc.. and pos- sible information on what lo ex- pect in the future. One of the principal benefits derived from such groups in other- communities lies strictly within Ihe interchange of information by the members themselves.

Pontotoc County Farmers Union Will Meet at Vanoss February 8th Somewhere, sometime the great .English Bard is credited with pen- 1 ning a line somewhat along the lines of "if winter comes can spring be far behind" or some- thing like that. Leaving the realm of (he muse, it is clear that spring is just around the corner and come spring, come the people who will I plant things to grow. To help the planter plant in- telligently, a useful and often un- heralded service operated from the office of county agent Cy Hail- ey. It is a soil testing lahorator. Addition And. this week, the laboratory- got a piece of new equipment which will make its work even more eificienl. The new gadget is a PH meter and was donated !by the First National Bank and Trust Co.. an organization which, evidently saw the need for the soil service years ago. It has sponsored the lab since its hum- ble inception on August 20. What does a PH meter do? Fair question. It is a more efficient and accu- rate method for testing the acidity of soil. But. back lo the soil lab. Since its official launching years ago. it has played detective on different samples of soil in. this county. And. not all of these came from the country. A sur- prising number came from town- folk who wanted to know why their bermuda wasn't doinc bet- ter and why the Madagascar Iris wouldn't grow in the bed by the garage. The soil lab told them, at least some of the time. Necessary Years ago. before the land was all leached out and half farmed to death, you could stick some- thing in the ground and it was a sale bet it would grown. But today, things occasionally need help. They may need help because the ground just doesn't have the ingredients necessary lo sustain healthy plant group "or they may be in order simply to increase yield. For farmers and their ilk. the government has come into the picture and funds are available, as most everyone knows, through ASC to help in restoring chemi- cal balance to the soil. Where legumes, permanent pasture and ground cover are being seeded, funds are available to the land-: owner on a cost-sharing basis. For general fertilizers the amount is set at 60 per cent. Where lime- stone is in order, cost sharing may be at either a 50 or 70 per cent level. i Help But. the government entered the picture because it realized it was to everyone's best interest to use chemicals when necc.-sary to insure a good stand of lecumes, for instance, which help fix nitro- gen in poor soils or other sorts of hardy ground cover to help stop expensive erosion. A small charge is assessed by the laboratory on each test. 50 cents. The chemist works one day a week during high demand per- iods for spring and fall planting but his schedule is flexible. Testing for the county now is Lewis Phillips who works with Idea! Cement Co. as a chemist. In preparing a sample. Hailey suggests a good composite samp- le of perhaps one pound of dirt be taken. It should be secured at several different points in the field and Hailey suggests, depend- ing on the type of crop in mind. samples be taken from the sur- face to a depth of three to six inches. He urges those who want tests run to bring their soil in several days ahead of time to allow amp- le time for drying. Hislnry He noted also that it is helpful The emphasis will be on youth at the next regular meeting of .the Ponloloc County Farmers I'nion at Vanoss High'Sehool Feb 8, p.m. All young people interested in the Farmers Union youth program lor are urged by vice presi- dent Pat Gallup to attend. Age limits are (i to 21. The program consists of a series of lessons to be completed by Nov. I. All who complete the program, Gallup said, will receive a SI.OOO life insurance policy for one year, providing Ibeir parents are Union members. The policy is renewec each year with yearly participa- tion in the programs and at the age of 21 may be converted to a i permanent type policy.
