* Congressman W. R. Poage an-
nounced while in Clifton for his Clif-
ton College address Thursday that in
response to the requests made by
him and other Southern Congress-
men, the Department of Agriculture
day before yesterday issued Amend-
ment No. 1 to its general Agriculture
Adjustment Administration orders,
extending the time during which far-
mers who sold their cotton during
August or September might file their
sales certificates and providing that
these certificates may be filed up to
October 30th. This moves the origi-
nal deadline from September 30th to
October 30th, and will give many far-
mers who failed to get their certif-
icates filed in time an opportunity to
participate in the 3c parity payments
offered by the Government on 65 per
eent of the base production. This is
particularly important to the farmers
of Central Texas as much of our crop
was out and sold before the farmers
realized that these certificates must

greatest responses from its subscrib-
ers in the way of renewals that it has
had in a long while. And not being
able to mention all of them in this
issue of the paper, for need of time
and space, it was thought best to
leave out all mention of any of them
at this time. It is certainly fine to have

subscribers, and especially the kind

G. A. Obenhaus, Pastor.
Our church was signally blessed by
having the privilege of entertaining
the annual meeting of our Assocition.
The reports, messages, plans and
programs, fellowship were great. We
are indeed grateful to the good la-
dis of our church who made it pos-
sible for us to have the cream of our
workers with us the past two days.
We are setting Sunday week, Oct.
24, as Pledge Day for the budget of
our church. Let every member pray-
erfully consider his obligation to the

By dusting 200 pounds of sul(
on 32 acres of cotton for flea hop]
earlier in the year, C. L. Sine
renter on the' S. B. Powell farm,
miles south of Kopperl, increased
cotton by two bales this fall.
The first indication of the flea 1
per on the Sinclair cotton was sh
when the tiny squares on the co
began turning black or brown
dropping from the plant. Since
sulphur was applied thoroughly, <
one dusting was necessary. The
plication was made by shaking
sulphur from a fine sack over'
Mr. Sinclair estimated the cost
the sulphur at 4c per pound, w
his profit for this small expendil
was two extra bales of cotton wl
he would not have made otherwi

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY
Considerable acreage in this sec-
tion had already been sown in grain
before the rains of this week set in,
and those farmers who felt the urge
to wait until the rain to sow, may
now do so when the ground is dry
enough and have the assurance that
there is plenty of moisture to bring
it up; and in time for good winter
grazing for the livestock. The low
price of cotton this year may cause
an increase of small grain acreage
for next year—and those who are
guessing may miss again, but it is
certain a fellow must keep trying.
A WINDOW not entirely
closed fails to serve its pur-
pose in stormy weather—
an incomplete insurance

inadequate or perhaps one
