the test weight of wheat con be increased slightly by combining early and handling it carefully. As a general rule, figure that the tett weight will drop about a quarter-of a pound per bushel each day after it hat ripened. Generally this won't be too important but it can mean the difference between No. 1 and No. 2 grades in some years. Shatter and cutterbar losses rise the most rapidly when harvest is delayed. Normally you can expect to lose about 12 pounds per acre for each day that combining is delayed after it reaches 25% moisture. You'll need approximately five cubic feet of air per bushel of grain stored at 20% moisture to assure proper drying. Normally you won't want to store more than six feet of high moisture grain at a time to be sure it will dry properly. The supplemental heater shown here provides drying insurance in case the weather becomes unusually muggy. Mr. Miller (left) dis t the advantages of Firestone truck tires with Firestone Dealer, Ed Claycomb. "From Red River to the border- 60,000 miles a year- Firestones proved themselves to me!" says A. S. Miller, Scott City, Kansas. "We ran our own truck tire tests using Firestone and another brand. We ran the same road, same load, same miles. The other tires wore out fast while the Firestones looked like new. Firestone is always on top with improvements- and the service I get from Ed Claycomb, my dealer, keeps me mighty happy, too!" Like A. S. MUler, you'll find Firestone truck tires deliver extra service at no extra cost! e FIRESTONE RUBBER-!, the longest wearing rubber ever used in Firestone truck tires, greatly prolongs tread life. e FIRESTONE SHOCK-FORTIFIED CORD gives you built-in stamina for top impact resistance under roughest hauling conditions. e FIRESTONE TRANSPORT TIRE: designed and built to give you maximum mileage at minimum cost in general farm hauling. • FIRESTONE ALL TRACTION TIRE: improved road mileage leader with top traction for feed lots, soft fields and lanes. • FIRESTONE SUPER ALL TRACTION TIRE: heavy duty, wide, extra deep tread for traction on highways or in mud or snow.
