Al's Comer By ALIIRT MADDUX Flnney County Cxtenslion Agricultural Agent For 10 days (June 1-11), | I will be on a study tour with three other extension worktt* from Southwest. Kansas. The tour is sponsored by the Kansas Association of County Agricultural Agents, Kansas State University, .and the tfin- ne y County Extension Counitil, and is designed to provide first ban: 1 , knowledge of new developments in the livestock industry. Starting on Tuesday morning, Hhe tour visited Ramsey Ranch at El Dorado, Ks.; Codding Brothers Ranch iat For- afcer, Okla.; Ogeechee Farms, Fairland, Okla.; Ozark Fisheries Ranch, Riohlamd, Mis*.; and the Van-Roaoh Ranch, Ft. Worth, Tex. We also plan to vist with livestock researchers at the University of Arkansas, Oklahoma State University, and at Texas Tech. The Oklahoma State work will include a visit to the cow herd management studies at El Reno, Oklahoma. Swine operations that are included on the tour will be at Willow Springs,. Missouri, ait the Heinz farm, attending the First National feeder pig sale at Willow Springs, Missouri. Visit nog operations in the Lubbock, Tex. area and a stop at the Jimmy Dean Packing Company at Plainview, Tex. Others who will be on the tour include Gene Francis, area livestock specialist; Clifford Manery, county agent from Lamed, and Gaiten Frick, former Extension agent from Dodge City.

Wheat causes increased acidity in the rumen so one group of cattle were fed K lb. of sodium bentoniite per head daily because of its potential buffering ability. M comparing various percentages of wheat in the fattening ration 50 . per cent wheat and 50 per cent milo reduced consumption 17 per cent as compared to the all milo ration and consumption of the all wheat ration Was 23 per cent below all milo consumption. However gain was not re* duced in either case so feed efficiency was improved. No advantage was obtained in this year's trails from reconstituting wheat. In comparing various varie* ties of wheat (soft anid hard- studies show that 'gains from, the hard red winter wheats are significantly better than from the soft wheats. Car- oaaises from the cattle fed the hard wheats also graded higher. The addition of fat in fattening rations increased gains when added to the Games (soft) wheat and only slightly when added to the milo ration. In a winter fattening trial comparing milo with hard and soft wheats consumption was 20 per cent less in the wheat raitions also hard wheats seemed mom likely than soft wheats to cause founder particularly during the latter part of the. feeding period with all wheats causing more founder than milo. In a growing •trial the use of 3 pounds soft and hard wheats compared to 3 pounds milo per head daily resulted in faster gains more feed efficiency and lower costs.

Some examples are ... at- nding a new school, the first prom, beginning secretaries, new waitresses, young people going away from home. The Kansas seed production industry has changed many ways since the era to yeairs ago when Turkey wheat variety was marketed under more than 25 different names and finding specific vairdeties to plant was hit and miss proposition for farmers. ,And every step of change leading to the seed industry's status as an indispensible segment of *he state's agricultural economy is chronicled in a recently released book entiitiLed "The Kansas Seed Grower." A pert, spry, retired agronomist alt Kansas State University, Prof. Alifred L. Clapp, authored the book — which traces the Mstory of the Kansas Crop Improvement Association (KCIA) — in two years of steady work, thereby completing iait the age of 82 another chapter in his long and fruitful life. While other men his age contented themselves by rocking in the rocking chair, Professor Clapp collected information for the book by poring through fleams of old records, news- lettens, personal letters, and business proceedings in the office of the Kansas Crop Improvement Association on, the KSU campus, then blending ten togertfhar meaningfully with his personal knowledge of itihe subject. "Digging through 70 years of records was airiuous at times •and I often wondered when the end wa® coming. But now that it's all over, it definitely was worthwhile," Clapp enthuses. Clapp was commissioned by the KCIA two years ago to do the' organization's history. Howard Wlfcins, Extension agronomist at KSU and executive secretary of the KCIA, says "Prof, dapp was the only person we could turn to. His many years as an agronomist working with certified seed in the state, including 11 years as KCIA secretary, gave him the unique opportunity to speak from personal experieiyre aind inifimiaite knowledge." The finished book is a truly attractive work. The 260-page volumis is bound in a beautiful blue hardback cover. The front cover is graced by « gold engraved replica-of the French painter Jean Francois Mallet's famous painting "The Sower-" Clapp's daughter Faye drew the sower otf seed cover emblem. dapp says the book "presents a rapidly moving picture of seed certification evolution TODAY IN HISTORY Evacuation Completed By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Thursday, June 3, the 154bh day of 1971.

ALFRED OAPP autographs copies of Ms book. in Kansas. To avoid monotony, I've omitted details not essential to the progress of the discussion.

The book describes the development and orgamzaition of the KCIA, lisits decisions leading to s«e>d certification and Mglh seed quality, notes finances of the organization, lists imiportanit persons in KCIA history, .and discusses the cooperation between KCIA and other organdzationis. It also gives an account of tihe organization's 'advertising Page 7 Garden City Telegram Thursday, June 3, 1971 and publicity history, including a contest in 1941 offering prizes for the best songs stressing the use of certified seed. "The winner was a song called 'Certified Pure Seed' sung to this tune of Auld Laing Syne," Clapp recalls with a chuckle. Wilkinis reports that KCIA members are beaming over the finished brok. "It exceeds Hhe fondest 'hopes we had when we commissioned Prof. Clapp to do the history two year's ago." The association is furnisihing complimentary copies of 1971 KCIA members, county agents, vocational agricultural teachers, cooperatiinig organizations, some libraries and to previous members otf the association upon request. Nonmtsimibeirs of the association may secure a copy for $3.00 from the Kansas Crop Improvement Association, Waters Hall, Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kansas 66502.

These programs include the Make It Yourself With Wool contest, the Miss Wool of America program, and educa- ional programs for consumers, metiers, home economists, and students. The ASPC motion pictures are seen by millions of persons each year, telling them about lamb, wool, and the sheep industry. A producei's "no" vote means he would like to see al such promotional and educational efforts c^witttiinu€d. Approval by two-thirds of the voting sheepmen or approval by sheepmen controlling two- thirds of the total sheep production represented in the referendum is necessary for passage. If the referendum passes, the USDA will continue to withhold 1V4 cents for each pound of shorn wool and 7Vi cents for each 100 pounds of unshorn lamlb from the government incentive wool payments made to producers through provisions of the National Wool Act.

WICHITA — Effective June 1, The Federal Land Bank of Wichita put an interest rate reduction from 8 to IVz per cent nto effect. "This action involves new as well -as a rate .reduc ion on more than $133 million of variable pate loans now outstanding," said William G. Pleated Jr., president of the Wichita Landj Bank. This is the third rate re'duc- tion since its new variable rate plan was introduced in July, 1969. The first reduction was laisit November when rates dropped fom 9 to 8 ] /2 per cent then to 8 per. cent effective March 1, 1971. "AJ1 Land Bank loans are now written on the variable rate plan," Plested said. "It Is a plan receiving ready accept ance by farmers and ranchers because it is based on economic conditions. In times such as this, the rate can be lowered." He pointed out that should the present ec'onomic trend urn around to a !ess favorable money market, the variable ate can be raised in the same manner that it was lowered. "This voluntary action on the part of the Federal Land Bank n reducing the Merest rate again should be very helpful to our agricultural people in this period of high operating costs, and is the seventh time in. the 54-year history of the Bank that interest "on existing loans has been voluntarily reduced," Plested said. The Wichita Land Bank is one of 12 banks located in mia- jor fad-mirig centers throughout the nation, providing dependable long-term real estate loans to farmers and ranchers through approximately 650 Federal Land Band Associations. On May 1, 1971, the Wichita Land Bank had 36,500 outstanding loans, representing $661 million in long-term loans to fammers a&d ranchers in Kansas, Oklahoma, Colorado and New Mexico.
