No team is being given more than five prospects to contact and the job is being done in one day, with a report back meeting the following night.

NO. 13 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-GXJRED TOBACCO TOBACCO'growers of the Flue-cured region know that diseases caused by parasites are a serious threat to successful tobacco production. Parasites that live over in the soil are responsible for large crop losses which cut down on the grower's profit. The development and use of resistant varieties has done much to reduce disease losses. In some cases, however, this alone has not been adequate. Sensible crop rotation practices, as set forth by Federal and State Agricultural Experiment Stations, can provide the grower with an additional weapon against disease. For most disease situations, the best performance of resistant varieties is dependent upon the use of a suitable rotation. \ i \v - 4 tin Tfi" <* '-4,' t■' - »• * ' « ",!

6 WR VA Boasts Oldest Farm Feature In Virginia Radio (Editor's Note: In the past few j years more and more radio stations and newspapers have become aware of the great potential of the farmer as a listener or a reader. As a result these mediums have gone all out to be of a greater service to people in rural areas. In recognition and appreciation of these facts, for the next few months we will salute a few radio stations that are cooperating in making the farmer an informed citizen through programs aired at a time when he may listen conveniently. This month we salute WRVA in Richmond, its program service manager and farm director.) Now in its twenty-seventh year of service to Virginia and the nation, WRVA—the Old Dominion's largest radio station (50,000 watts) —boasts the oldest farm feature in Virginia radio.

8 Hunters Asked To Plant Pine Seed While Hunting At the last session of the Virginia General Assembly a resolution was passed which asked Virginia hunters to assist in reseeding their hunting grounds, according to George W. Dean, state forester. A small packet of pine seeds is being distributed with every hunting license issued. Hunters are asked while in the woods, in open places on good soil where shade is not heavy, to scrape away the leaves on a place as large as your hat. Drop two or three pine seed and press in the ground with the foot. Next spring, the directions say, a new pine tree may start growth.

That's the advice from Dr. J. O. Rowell, entomologist at VPI, who warns that lice often are the cause of declines in milk and beef production. They should be destroyed any time they are found on animals, but it is especially important to control them at this time of year, since the lice reproduce and spread rapidly among cattle in warm, congested quarters. A single thorough treatment with a I/2 percent DDT spray will eliminate lice completely, but should not be used on cattle in...

At the end of the fiscal year, October 31, the membership in the state totaled 10,873, a deficit of 1,377 members. Over 3,000 memberships expired in October and counties were unable to renew that number plus a sufficient group of new members to reach the quota. Membership workers claim that by December the membership for VFBF will be near 12,000 but many counties found it impossible to get the job done before October 31 because of farming conditions this year. Again this year, seven counties in the state met the county quota. They are: Essex, Dinwiddie, Surrv, Northampton, Princess Anne, Charles City-New Kent, and Greensville.
