(As I said before, hogs and cows never stop eating). About the time he gets his land all fixed for his rye, wheat, or oats he notices that his neighbor has started "digging peanuts". He knows that his are not quite ready but he figures he had better hang around and watch them pretty close. Before another fishing trip or a vacation with the family can be planned his "goobers" are ready to dig, cotton ready to pick and corn ready to pull. (Somewhere dur- ing this time he has found time to plant that rye and wheat). Those hogs and cows are still eating and demanding their share of his time. Now, it's too late in the year to take that trip and it's too cold to go fishing. There are a few farm meetings he wants to at- tend so he had better "hang- around". It's about time to sell more hogs and calves so he can start over. Maybe next year he can -Lay-By", and take a vacation. ********* INSECTS.

Browntop Millet matures in about about 2 months or so from germination. Since the stalk is only two or three feet high, turkeys will easily strip seed from the heads. A soil test should be made before planting. Without the benefit of a soil test, I would recom- mend the use of 400 pounds of 4-12-12 per acre at planting and top dress with 200 pounds of nitrate of soda or its equi- valent when the millet is up to a good stand. Drill seed at the rate of 20 pounds per acre or broadcast at the rate of 30 pounds per acre. Sunflowers might be planted in early July to produce mature seed before cold weather. The sunflower is most attractive to doves and the shattered seed from the heads are eaten by quail and wild turkey. FHA ISSUES PROGRESS REPORT IN WALTON COUNTY, FLOR IDA Administrator James V. S m i t h of the Department of Agriculture's Farmers Home Administration has lsb'ued a progress report on the rural FHA's expanding support of home financing for families in the countryside and towns of up to 5,500 population. His report for the first 9 months of fiscal year 1970 showed that the agency approved 43,748 home ownership loans totaling $465.4 million, as against 37,277 loans totaling $360.7 million in the corresponding period of fiscal 1969. Loans for newone-famlly homes under the ruralprogram exceeded 25,000 through March. The building of rural homes is expected to result in the Farmers Home Administration surpassing $800 million in in- sured housing loans for the I suppose that the phrase fiscal year ending June 30, 1970.

Last year more than 25,000 young drivers between the age of 15 and 30 years were in= volved in fatal accidents. They maimed, crippled or injured more than half a million others, and ran up a damage bill of over $3 billion dollars as a result of their auto accidents. Paxton Scouts "Rally 'Round The Flag Pole" To carry on their theme- ',Rally 'Round the Flag"-the Paxton Bey Scout Troop 708 held a flag raising ceremony comemoraiing Flag DaySunday, June 14, at the Paxton Town Hall. Officiating at the cere- mony was Scoutmaster John Cuddy and Dale McKinney. The flag was ralsedby James Marsh and Wilson Jordan. Some of the boys' parents These damages were paid for were present. This turn-out either directly by their parents, or through higher priced insur- ance which they or their fami- lies must carry, if they permit their children to get behind the wheel of a car. In those few words, but start- ling statement, is the vital points of this thing we call, the problem of the youthfuldri- ver. For years, traffic authorities and safety origanizations have been deploring our young driv- ers' sad record and striving to improve it. While the picture is still pretty dark, there is some evidence that efforts are beginning to pay off, but it is going to take a lot more than wishful thinking, safety slogans, and lectures to bring that about. One of the many avenues needing attention is the fourth E of safety. We know of the three E's of safety education, enforcement, and engineering. It appears we have overlooked the most important. E, the E of EXAMPLE. When you see a father roaring down the road with the back seat filled with young people - taking all kinds of chances. ,What can we expect of the young people? Add tothis the bad examples adults set for children in non-confor- mance to traffic laws, hostility toward police and ticket fixing and you may find further reason for the bad driving habits of our youngsters. Parents by ,all means encour- age your children to practice good sportsmanship on the road just as you would in baseball or football. Do this-lt may save a life. shows that there is some pa- triotism left in this war torn world and these boys, their parents and the scoutmaster should be praised for their patriotism.

To date we have no~ seen any Southern Corn Leaf Blight in Covington County. We could have some and it not be re- ported. This blight is a fungus disease that attacks corn under wet humid conditions. Smyp- toms of the disease are small grayish tan spots about the size of a match head on corn leaves. The lower leaves are affected first then it moves up the stalk to other ]eaves. There is no economical control or preven- tion of the disease although a fungicide has been developed for control. ARE BOLL WEEVIL NUMBERS BUILDING U P I N T H E" COUNTY? Yes, the boll weevil popula- tion is on the increase. In fact we should have a few first generation weevils hatching out in some of our older cotton at this time. Keep a check on your fields.

It showed one of these metal plates for cars with the following messages: IF YOU DON'T LIKE POLICEMEN, THE NEXT TIME YOU ARE IN TROUBLE, CALL A HIPPY! Personally, I can think of no more beautiful sight than a police car when one needs help desparately. Last Saturday in the middle of Florala the bat- tery cables on myvehicle canght fire. I immediately stepped into a store and called the police. Within seconds the policeman on duty and the fire engine were pulling up to the curb. All too often we citizens are guilty of taking our policemen and volunteer firemen for granted, even going as far as criticizing them on many oc- casions. Very rarely do we take the trouble to thank them for an often thankless job. I hope in one of your forth- coming issues, you will tell the people of Florala how fortunate they are in having policemen and firemen who will respond when they are in trouble and need help. I also hope you wlll tell them to be more articulate with their gratitude. Everyone likes to be appreciated and I am sure our policemen and firemen de= serve it more than anyone. Yours truly, Mrs. C.
