We are going to have men talk on every angle of the berry business. Ira Hughes of Murfreesboro Will talk on the growing end. He has grown strawberries in this section for several years- and has made a success of it. He 1$ interested in a 19-acre field and has a good acreage of his own. Glen Wallace, marketing agent for the Missouri Pacific Railroad, will talk from that angle. Mr. Wallace is very much interested in this territory. He has an interest in a 300 acre orchard near Horatio and owns the Johnson orchard between Murfreesboro and Delight, and Is going to plant 15 acres of berries on the Delight farm. He is putting his personal money in our territory, which shows what he thinks of our country. N. D. Zuber of the horticultural department of the A. R. T. Co., will talk on the handling of the crop. He is well known here and is going to plant a good acreage in strawberries on his arm just north of Nashville. E. A. Hudson of the agricultural department of the Missouri Pacific will ilso be here. He is also very much interested in our territory. We haven't Saturday night, ^Sunday night *""-£. 3. J, Delaney and services at Blevins /Al Thompson of Blev- visitors with Mr, s Husky Sunday.

He and Mr. Wallace have contracted for 400 turkeys to be hatched to run on the Delight orchard*. Turkey* *r« fine to run in an orchard. They gather up the bugs and in the fall, in grasshopper season, the turkeys reap a harvest, and later comes the peoples harvest on the turkeys. Mr. Nuckles, also of the A. R. T. Co., wilt be here, as will others. This berry business is a crop here, in a way. We never have grown enough to load cars, but we have grown enough to know they do fine and we have the .soil here. All we lack Is quantity to load cars. We have quite a few acres around here. But Murfreesboro and Delight will load cars this year. I want the people of Nashville and this territory to give these men a big hearinf, even if you know you Cannot plant berries. Come anyway, because if you live here .it means something to you. You all know what the peach harvest does for our section. Now, if we get behind this berry business, it really means more, because it brings early money and gives work to every boy and girl here in this section and will import hundreds of others. Plants are cheap and we have plenty right here at home. Be sure and come out Friday at 2 o'clock. Radish Planting Is Delayed By Rains Farmers Expect to f*iam as Soon as Ground Dry* Sufficently Planting of sprlngrndlshas, ohfe among the leading truck crops in the north part of Hempstead county has been delayed on account of recent heavy rains, the farmers being unable to plow their land for planting. It is expected that a large acreage will be planted to this crop just as soon as the ground dries sufficiently for the farmers to get a plow in their fields.

As a safeguard against the dangerous results of fire we have begun the practice of having fire drills at least once each week. We cannot overemphasize the importance of this type of work as a part of the valuable .training ofered by our public schools. The ninth grade'hated to lose one of its best members, Helen Honeycutt. She has moved near Blevins. Even though we boast of having almost at good attendance record as any school, we believe it can be made better. We have a method introduced which has for its purpose further elimination of the absentee problem. We hope the parents will cooperate with the school .authorities in carrying out this. plan. Every parent knows that the child cannot do his best work when kept out of school a large or even a small per cent of the time. Rev. J. A.

AMES, Iowa.—In an effort to develop disease and drouth-resisting corn, scientists of Iowa State College experimented with thousands of plants during 1931 in an interesting program of cross-breeding. On the agronomy farm here hundreds of strains were tested and thousands of plants were tended as carefully as a livestock breeder cares for his prize-winning bull. One step in developing a new strain is the self-pollination of the corn plant. The field on the agronomy farm contained between 15,000 and 20,000 self -pollinated plants—"selfs," as they are known—the past season, and a total of nearly 30,000 selfs and crosses of various strains. Under the direction of Dr. M. T. Jenkins, agronomist from the U. S. Department of Agriculture, many inbred lines have been crossed to make hybrids. Others are still to be tested and many others inbred lines are planned to afford material for seeking better strains of com. Faper Bag Used The system used in the self-pollination of corn is interesting. A small bag is placed over the ear before the silks appear. When the tassels start to shed pollen a bag is placed over them and the pollen is transferred to the silks of the same plant. The bag is.left over the ear until the pollination stage is past. The object of this "selfing" is to isolate lines which will breed true. From six to eight years are required to produce uniform lines and fix their characters. The work at this station has been going on for nine years and the older lines are now uniform. Only Best Ones Kept Many of the "selfs" are discarded Russellville cHalth is good in this community. We were made to rejoice by having a few pretly days of sunshine. C. G. Bennelt of Shover Springs have moved on W. C. Manning's farm near this place. The party at Chester Almond's was enjoyed by u crowd of youngsters last Saturday. Lillian Bennett spent the night with Misses Emmalue and Maudie Almond last Saturday. Elbert Manning made a business trip to Prescott one day last week. £. S. Greening of Hope, passed through this community recently. Albert Bustin and family of Union and Edger Huston and family of near Watterloo spent the day with their parents, Mr. and Mrs, Shurmsu) Suttop. Four visited with Mrs. Anfljg |{f. asA Mrs. C. G. Bennett visited old borne place test Sunday. during the inbreeding process because of undesirable characteristics. Th best ones arc saved, developed anc crossed with each other to test theii ability to produce big-yielding hy brids. When this "acid test" come many more are discarded. After a good hybrid is found i must be grown for several years tc determine its yielding ability, whethc or not it will stand drouth, whethe the plants will stand up in a win and other facts. If the new hybrid shows promise o being valuable some of the seed i given to farmers to grow under farm field conditions to test it further. I it still shows sufficient promise it parents will be distributed so hybrk seed can be produced on a commercia basis. Four hybrids were distributed las year for tesling on farms and two o three of them probably will be plac ed farms again next year. Appreciable Yield Increase Dr. E. W. Lindstrom, head of th genetics department, who also has done corn breeding work for several years, has found that by hybridizing Krug, a standard variety, with an inbred line he can increase Ihe yield an average of 10 lo 12 per cent over the standard variety, some years obtaining an aincreasc of 25 to 30 per cent. There is no question but thai yields can be increased by hybridizing, thua permilting more corn to be raised per acre and the rest of the land put to some other use. But the mere fact that a corn is hybrid means nothing; there are good hybrids is betler understood there are likely lo be many worlhless hybrids on the market, plant breeders say.
