Eudaly, ex- tension sm'lce specialist, told a group ot Scurry county farmers to- day at a silo demonstration held at the J. L. Bowen (arm, Cheapness ot the commodity has caused the growers to take up their belt anothei. notch and dive Into thick of tin fight. They are un- willing to sacrifice the prolific crop. Consequently they are study- Ing a pay-off plan which Is ex- pec'ed U> found In the utiliza- tion of trench silos. Perhaps never has (here been a greater acreage of grain sorghums 01 a higher yield per acre, lending cause to the "save your feed' campaign which has been adopted In this area. Many of the visitors attending the alior expressed the belief they would accept that method of storing ihclr crop. It only li-.cre was some way of lolling insects Into the trench moan the farmers who are wondering lust what the cotton production will be, Some say the yield wlil high, and others say It R'ill bf low. Ten days ago. Fritz Ohlenbusch of Inadale offered to wager that hii 151 acres would make 120 bales of cotton. Today he doesn't kn-nv what to think. PRICE FIVE CENTS Preservation Of Record Feed Crop First Problem Before West Texas R. G. Wilson of the Southern Cotton compuny with headquarters In Abilene said, today cotton on the blackland vas suffering heavier losses became of Insects. He and A. O. smilb of the Planters Gin company just visited 75 fields in Mlicliell, Scurry, Nolan and Fisher county In some fields they said the production would be halt a bale or better to the acre. While !n other fields It will take 10 lo 15 to make ft bale Ihey say. Ths s'-aix Is plenty large and there Is a bountiful supply of moisture, but something is causing yonng fruit to drop off. However, all cotton that blooms during the next three weeks has a chance of maturing. Thus mltresl Is centered on the grain sorgaums. Visitors at the City Authorizes For Its Part Of School Warrants To Be Signed Today On Project An ordinance authorizing the city of Abilene to borrow from the Farmers and Merchants, Na- tional bank and the Citizens Na- tional bank was passed' on first and second readings yesterday. The money will be the part for a school project, for which "the Public Worki administration bas been uked to furnish H5.WO. The ordinance which authorized the borrowing of the money yester- day also provided for the Issuance of 4 per cent warrants, payable on or before April 30, 1939, from the current funds of the clty. Issuance of the warrants, to each of the banks, was the rec- ommendation of a committee which had been studying means of secur- ing the Heads of the two banks had given assurance that the would be purchased. Tuesday afternoon at j o'clock, the warrants will be signed by the mayor.. Further details of the school project are to be worked out at that time. Jointly by a com- mittee from the school board city commission, and citizens committee lhat has been studying city prob lenji; j. R. Helder, school board prejjdent, appointed J. M.

That Is use of a lone machine which prepares the 'eed'for a silo and cuts about 10 acres daily. They saw a 53-ton capacity that will .be filled in two days tor a labor expenditure of only 120. At Ihe lowest valuation, ensilage Is worth per ton. At that rate that r.edkafflr being harvested to- day was netting the owner 117.50 per acre 6old on the puny open market of one cent per bundle, a return would be realized. It was estimated the yield was run- ning alt toiu per acre. G. E. Chbin of this section says he plaru lo fl'i five trench silos. He has 300 acres of grain sorghums and plans to store all of crop. That's a method Ewlaly is trying to get Texas to adopt. He will conduct a .demonstration at Sweetvater today and one In Fisher county Wednesday. The Irench silo movement seems to be gene-al. At Roscoe, R E. Gracey, Implement dealer, suc- cessfully the silos for several years is baci: at the same prac- tice this yeai. Willie Joe Largent, Mcrlcel Here- ford oreedei, has taken up the policy and is constructing two huge silos at the Largent place. In the same section J. T. Warren will fill a silo. In Taylor county the silos will be more than doubled over 1931.
