NOVEMBER, 1955 NO. 50 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference Xty- Mr H I |g&i • * "!#' ,«*&£' Proper crop rotations reduce the root-knot nematode population in the soil. This fall is still not too late to start a suitable rotation, and the growers who put in fall crops that fit into a nematodecontrol program have taken the first step toward better crops in the future. Crops that will help control nematodes and crops that will make the problem worse are listed elsewhere on this page. Further information on rotations for nematode control will appear in this series next summer. Three distinct kinds of nematodes are now known to cause serious root damage to tobacco: (1) root knot, (2) meadow or root lesion (brown root rot) and (3) stunt. Although these nematodes differ in their feeding habits, the aboveground symptoms they produce are similar. Affected plants are stunted, appear to be starved, and wilt on hot days. The leaves fire a...

NOVEMBER, 1955 Shuman Urges Elimination Of Farm Issues From Politics The farm price support question should be taken out of partisan politics, according to Charles B. Shuman, president of the American Farm Bureau Federation. During the recent annual meeting of the Kansas Farm Bureau he said that political opportunists in both parties" are trying to make capital out of a problem which should be solved on the basis of economic experience. "Recent history has demonstrated that actions of Congress to fix farm prices have failed to achieve the goal of satisfactory farm income," he declared. "Now, with a national election in the offering, we should remember what 25 years of experience has taught us—that farm prosperity doesn't come from political promises and panaceas. "It comes from sound programs which permit farmers to profit from efficient production of the things consumers want. And it is possible only in an economic climate which allows our free enterprise system to work." Farm prob...

NO. 51 IN A SERIES ON FLUE-CURED TOBACCO Save this page for future reference Each month brings a new job to the Flue-cured grower, and each stage of production has an important bearing on the success of the crop. Outlined here are some of the activities that face the Flue-cured grower in an average year. JANUARY —Good plant bed management is the key to healthy, vigorous tobacco plants. The plant bed soil should be treated with chemicals before sowing time to control weeds and soilborne diseases. See that plants get plenty of water, using irrigation if necessary, and spray or dust to prevent damage by insects and by diseases such as Blue Mold and Anthracnose. To prevent the spread of Mosaic by contact, have workers wash hands thoroughly before handling plants, and see that they do not use natural leaf tobacco while working in the bed. FEBRUARY — Be sure that adequate labor arrangements have been made for the year's operations, including planting, harvesting, and curing. Check procedu...

"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, 10, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. "And the angel said unto them, Fear not: For, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. "And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

6 Almond Backs Segregation Bill (Continued from Page 1) the General Assembly of Virginia, many thousands of our children, both white and Negro, will be deprived of educational assistance and opportunities so essential to the future welfare of this State. "A vote against amending the Constitution as proposed would, in effect, constitute a vote for mixing of the races in the public schools, as these thousands of Virginia children would have no other alternative in areas where the races are mixed but lo attend such schools or no schools at all." Almond went on to say that a vote for the amendment simply "means an expression on our part that the hands of your representatives in the General Assembly shall be unshackled, so that your Legislature may meet the problem as it exists in the various localities of Virginia in promotion of the welfare of all of the children of Virginia ... a vote for the amendment is a vote against government by NAACP in Virginia.
