Master Sergeant Charles O. Pitts, son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Charlie Pitts of near Tishomingo,

In November of 1946, Sergeant Pitts reverted from Warrant Officer to Master Sergeant.

Among the ribbons worn by Pitts is the Good Conduct Medal, with 9 stars in lieu of consecutive

awards, the Presidential Unit Citation with two starts, World War I and World War II Victory

Rite, Alexandria, Virginia; Acca Temple, Richmond, Virginia; Shrine Club, Fredericksburg,

Virginia; and the Calvin A. Lloyd Chapter, O.E.S., Quantico, Virginia.

Mrs. Mary Bostick, Misses Bernice and Lillian, have recently had two 1,000 bushel capacity steel

bins erected on their farm located 5 miles south of Iuka on R-1. The bins were purchased through

the ASC program, using a farm storage facility loan. The Bosticks will use these to store

soybeans and later receive a Commodity Credit Corporation loan on the beans at $2.06 per bushel

which is the loan price. All farmers in Tishomingo County are eligible for this type of service

under the ASC program. Further information can be obtained from the county ASC office.

W. J. Brinkley, Iuka, has a 2,400 bushel capacity bin and a 1,000 bushel capacity bin of this type

on his farm for storing corn. Morrel Hatcher, Burnsville, and E. F. Fancher, Belmont, R-1, have

one 1,000 bushel capacity bin each. These at present are being used for the storing of ear corn.

The 1,000 bushel capacity bins, including aeration, cost $529.00 each. Mrs. Bostick through the

ASC program paid only 20 per cent of the cost plus freight and installation costs. The remaining

amount was furnished by the Farm Storage Facility Loan program to be paid in four installments

(1 payment a year) at a low rate of 4 per cent interest which makes it easy for a farmer to buy and

install one of these bins on his farm.

“If we could get more farmers in Tishomingo County to purchase these bins and store corn and

soybeans when the price is low in the fall and hold these commodities until the following spring

when prices advance, farmers could realize more cash money in growing these crops,” stated

E. N. Allen, office manager of ASC.

Fire season is here! . . . A thick blanket of fallen leaves will soon cover the floor of the forests.

Fields are rapidly changing from green to brown. Fanned by dry autumn winds, this great

accumulation of dead vegetation will become a vast tender box, ready to burst into flames at any

moment . . . Cooperation between landowners, plus an assortment of simple fire fighting tools on

every farm, could mean the difference between fire blackened ruin and healthy, incomeproducing

forests . . . All farms have tools which can be used in fighting woods fires. Other tools

can be purchased for little expense or made from discarded materials. The primary hand tools are

rakes, axes, bush hooks, flaps, shovels and portable water tanks. One of the most effective

weapons for fighting fire is an ordinary farm tractor fitted with a heavy disc harrow. Adequate

fire breaks can be easily plowed with this equipment. All tools should be kept in good repair and

stored in an accessible place . . . Neighbors should cooperate with one another in controlling

woods fires. Properly organized, a few landowners become an effective fire control unit. A

general meeting, to adopt a plan of action, is the first step in organizing fire protection in a

community. Advice and assistance to local fire control groups are offered by state forestry

representatives, and county agents . . . Too often small fires become costly merely because of

inaction or delay in the early stages. One of the first things a landowner should do when fire

occurs is to call one of the many trained suppression agencies standing by for just such an

emergency . . . Listed below are the names, telephone numbers and addresses of the fire control

agencies protecting this county. Know the name and number of these groups. If you can’t

remember, clip this information from the paper and paste it in a conspicuous place near your

telephone. Call these numbers if you see a woods fire: Collins M. Akin, Iuka 6182; Glen Tower,

Corinth 3259; Woodall Mountain Tower, Iuka 5231; Dennis Tower, Belmont 3802; Clifton

Rhodes, Iuka 3121; Hiwassee Land Co., Iuka 6186; and J. L. Hopkins, Belmont 3804.

If you like a good picture show then we suggest you see “The Ten Commandments” that will be

showing at the Belmont Theatre for a whole week including Sunday, beginning on Friday of this

week. This picture very accurately tells the story of Moses and the Israelites; of their bondage in

Egypt and their journey in search of the Promised Land. The scene of the hordes crossing the

Red Sea is a fete of photography that will hold you spellbound . . . The trials and tribulations, the

problems and passions of a nation of people in slavery is forcefully told in color by a cast of

players that are the pick of Hollywood . . . If you like stories of the Bible and Biblical history then

you will want to see this religious film that is strongly endorsed by Cardinals and Bishops,

ministers, rabbis and priests of every major denomination in the world.

Farm Prosperity

The official “farm story” now being distributed from Washington could convince many city

people and Congress that all farmers are rolling in unprecedented prosperity and wealth.

That would be a serious mistake. There is danger that some of the more recent favorable farm

news will be so over-emphasized as to obscure the still serious difficulties which farmers face.

The farm news, generally, is indisputably good. Good weather and careful planning have enabled

farmers to produce bumper crops this year. The total is a new record high, 10 per cent above any

previous year.

The average of prices, received by farmers has been rising faster than farm costs for almost two

years. Beef cattle and hog prices have been especially favorable to mixed blessing; that the result

is an increase in our already burdensome surplus. There is every indication that farm surpluses

will continue to be a serious national problem.

While per capita farm income is up, total farm income is 25 percent below 1952--$12 billion

compared with $16 billion. The difference is explained by the fact that there are fewer farmers.

Purchasing Power Down

Although income measured in dollars is up, because of inflation farmers can buy less with 1958

income than they could with much smaller income in 1940. it is what you can buy with the

dollars you have, not the number of dollars, that counts.

Farmers now own an estimated $188 billion worth of real estate and other property, against which

they have mortgages totaling $11 billion. That, too, is largely a result of inflation rather than

increased wealth.

Farm ownership is at a record high, and that is good. Two out of every three farmers are

completely free of mortgage debt. The standard of living on farms, Mr. Benson emphasizes, is

the highest in history.

Farm people own more appliances, radios, televisions, automobiles and other conveniences than

ever before. The average, however, still is well below that of city people.

Washington may be guilty of being over anxious to paint too bright a farm picture. Fairness

requires that emphasis be placed on complete accuracy rather than on “making the record look

Area Forester Collins M. Akin reports that the deadline previously set by the Mississippi Forestry

Commission for the acceptance of applications for forest tree seedlings has passed and announces

that some seedlings are still available. He said that the Commission will continue to accept

orders until the remaining seedling supply is exhausted and urges those desiring seedlings to

submit their application as soon as possible.

Akin says that seedling applications may be taken by the county representative of any of the

agricultural agencies. These include Mississippi Forestry Commission Area Forester, ASC

Office Managers, Soil Conservation Service Technicians, and members of the County agent’s

staff. He said that seedling prices remain the same with all species selling for $4.50 a thousand

on available species, which are slash, loblolly, shortleaf, and longleaf pines and black locust.

Each landowner is eligible to receive one thousand (1,000) free seedlings. There is a charge of

thirty-five cents (35 cents) per thousand on all seedlings, however, for transportation to the

county in which the seedlings are to be planted.

The monthly publication of the Business Research Station at Mississippi State University shows

that activity throughout the district varied from a four percent increase at Corinth to a nine

percent decrease at Iuka. Other towns were Booneville, three percent decrease; and Ripley, one

percent increase.

General business activity in the Corinth District during the month of September showed a two

percent increase over the corresponding month a year ago, according to the recent issue of “The

Mississippi Business Review.”

The district as a whole stood at 152 percent of the 1947-49 average recorded by the station. By

the same index, Corinth stood at 140 percent; Booneville, 199 percent; Iuka, 190 percent and

Ripley, 193 percent.

November is the month to plant shrubs. As you plants those shrubs planned to go

beneath a window, group three of them to form a triangle. This gives a more natural

effect than three in a row. It also gives more room for the center shrub to grow an

develop properly.

part. Pour some cream over it and let it soften. Then whip until fluffy. If desired, stir in

is excellent atop warm apple, mince or pumpkin pie.

Thadious C. Ables Farm Pond

For years farm ponds have been constructed, or dug, on SCD Co-operators farms in

Tishomingo County.

For years the Soil Conservation personnel has assisted in the establishing of these ponds.

What is it about Mr. Ables’ farm pond that makes it news It is not the pond itself but

the uses Mr. Ables has planned for it that makes the construction of this pond news.

First of all Mr. Thadious C. Ables, who lives four miles west of Dennis, wanted a pond to

furnish water for his livestock. Second he wants to stock it with fish. Third he wants to

irrigate his garden. Fourth Mr. Ables will use it for swimming and fifth in case of fire he

can pump water from this pond to spray on his dwelling or farm buildings.

There you have five uses for one farm pond. Let’s list them again: 1. Water for

livestock; 2. Fish; 3. Irrigate garden; 4. Swimming, and 5. Fire protection.

Mr. Ables is to be congratulated on this fine project.
