(AP)-The sign in front of a Norco home used to say: "Free Kittens." After a while it was changed. It now reads: "Free cats." The Greek philosopher Archy- tas, who lived in the 4th century B. C., considered the rattle "an admirable invention' 1 to amuse children and keep them from breaking things in the house. Tips Milo harvest is almost complete and time has come to consider the requirements for next year's crop. Soil testing to determine the fertilizer requirements for itoxt year is an important factor that should be done as soon as possible. The point I'm trying to make is that the sooner that you have your soil analyzed the sooner you can determine the fertilizer requirements and purchase the needed, fertilizer. It i ? possible that buying fertilizer in an off season that the price will be better to you. Also Ibis will give •you more time to go over next years crop program and determining where you would like to plant the certain crops. The different types of soil and the fertilizer requirements of soil will mean a lot to you as to what crop will do best on that particular soil. This will help you to have a better or^nized farm orogram. Also it will help you to have an increase in crowing more bushel oer acre, which means more dollars profit per acre. The soil test shot'ld be taken from an average type sample of the piece of Errnimd that you are sampling. Take a sample from all the different nortions of the field and compile them in a large container and mix thoroughly. Then take a samnle from the mixed composif. This should give vou the type of soil which a fertilizer recommendation for the whole field can do you tha most good. Another 1 method is to take a soil sample from a particular J. M. CONCANNON DEMOCRAT For Representative 115th DISTRICT FINNEY COUNTY Your Vote and Support Appreciated N. Fol. Adv. — J. M. Coneannon, Garden City From Tex By Tex Demuth Assistant County Agent spot In the field where the previous year's crop didn't produce or had any obvious deficiency oi plant nutrients. This small area should be treated with fertilizer according to the soil tests. These tests should be sent to the Soils Testing Laboratory at the Garden City Experiment Sta tion. They will then process die sample and send you a copy of the analysis and one will be sent to us at the Extension Office. We will then in turn make the re?< ommendatlons as to what fertll izer should be used and send you the recommendations. -There, is a small fee of $1.00 to have the sample analyzed. This information will give you many returns for the initial investment matte. Soil testing for fertilizer recommendation is a good part of planning the crop program for irrigation farmers. As of to date we haven't had any results with fertilizer on drvland. The results have been good one year and not so good the next on dryland and we feei that it isn't practical for dryland farms. This is often a question of which there is a lot of questions and arguments about. We just returned from Annual Conference-at Manhattan and we brought back some material concerning the Hessian Fly. If any- nne is interested in the Hessian Fly problem, we would be glad to discuss the problem with you and give you some information concerning the Hession Fly. This Is iust a reminder to all of the 4-H Officers for the corn- in? year. There will be an Officers Training School Saturday. November 3rd.

Who Knows About Wheat? i Confusion has become a campaign tactlo in the First District congres- sional.race and the voter will be hard pressed to hack his-way through the jungle of conflicting statements to the ballot box. A case in point is the argument tetween Cong. Dole and Cong. Breeding over 1964 wheat prices under the bill Just passed by the House.- .11 seems clear enough that wheat which the farmer produces for domestic or supported foreign .sale will 'bring about $2.05 per bushel. :The argument is over what he will get for the remainder—about 10 per cent of his production—which he will' sell on the open market. Breeding says this.price will be around $1.30 per bushel, pegged as it is to the going world price. The secretary of agriculture and various wheat association spokesmen support this view. • : Dole, on the other hand, insists that the price for this extra prodiiQtion will be. only about 92 cents, a figure related to the price of corn. Dole makes it sound as if he were talking about the entire crop, rather than a minor portion. He also overlooks a highly desirable factor in the n e w bjll which allows the farmer not to sell this extra wheat at all, if he doesn't want to. He can take a loan on it. Or he can start, it u a form of insurance against poor crops, selling it later at the $2.05 price If.his regular domestic yield falls'short. How Is the voter to decide.who's right? The best to consider the credentials of the two candidates. Mr. Dole, a young attorney and freshman congressman,' has b e e n wrestling with the politics of wheat legislation only the past 18 months or so. Mr; Breeding, on the -other hand, has been growing wheat for more than 30 years in Southwest Kansas, has lived and made a living under the whole range of farm programs 'since Hoover. He is one of the early organizers .of Wheat Growers Assn. and of the Kansas. Wheat Commission. In three terms in Congress" he has become recognized as the wheat expert of the House; is chairman, of its Wheat Sub-committee and was the wheat representative--on the recent farm bill'conference committee. It borders on the ridiculous for Mr. Dole to charge that a man with'this experience as wheat grower, wheat booster and wheat legislator, is fostering legislation to ruin the wheat country. The confused voter can take it from there. Today and liwdint fcr feofriw Slit*— Norbirt Pulling. Heyi, Kama*, «i>4 HoroM HtH, CiUwatv, KwKM.

Gambling Red Hot Issue in Idaho Gubernatorial Election By EARLE L. JESTER BOISE, Idaho (AP)-Gambling a red hot issue in Idaho in this election. A candidate who wants to open Idaho to Nevada-style gambling and another dead-set against it are battling for the governorship. The pro-gambling candidate is Democrat Vernon K. Smith, 50, a Boise attorney. He seeks to unseat Republican Gov. Robert E. Sm'ylie, 47, who is bidding for a third term after holding the governor's chair for eight years — longer than any other man. .Smylie has tagged Smith "the man with the green eyeshade." Wellington Girl Killed in Crash WELLINGTON, Kan. (AP) — Sixteen-year-old Virginia Alder homecoming queen at Welln ,ton High School, was killed Wednesday night when a car rammed through a dead-end barricade and down a 25-foot embankment. Virginia was-riding with Kenneth Nuss, 17. Also in the car were Lana Brand, 16, and Russell Johnson. They had severe facial cuts. All are from Wellington. The barricade was at the end of a dirt road. Virginia was thrown through the windshield. Celebes Islanders number 6,600,000 of Indonesia's 32,600,000 people.

Efforts to drum up interest in issues other than, gambling generally have been unavailing. Smith won the Democratic nomination in a six-man primary election field, baling his campaign on support of a program calling for legalized casino-type gambling on a local option basis. He said his plan would bring more tourists to Idaho and result in expansion of resort areas. He pointed to the growth of the Las Vegas southern Nevada, where gambling is legal. Smylie says Smith's program "could only create an economic and moral cancer in the body politic." "Gambling breedis crime," he j says. "Idaho has the lowest crime { rate of all the 11 Western states. [ Nevada has the highest — nearly j three times as great as Idaho's.' "We are a vigorous, young, : growing state. There are many • changes and challenges ahead.' But the way to meet these challenges is with a sound and sensible state government dedicated, to j all of the people of Idaho." Smith Is carrying on his campaign independently of other Democratic candidates for state and congressional offices. Democratic party leaders generally opposed, him prior to the primary. Former President Harry S. Truman spoke in behalf of Demo- catic candidates during an appearance in eastern Idaho in September. But he spoke out aginst gambling, terming it "the worst thing in the world." Smith accused Truman of "disloyalty to the Democratic cause" and declined to attend a breakfast honoring the former president. ED PORTER LUMBER CO. 804 E.

Soak the soil thoroughly with Water a few hours before lifting the plants. If possible, choose a dull, moist day for digging. Have pots of appropriate sizes and place chips of cracked pots or pebbles in the bottom to insure proper drainage. Use a fork rather than a spade or trowel for digging so that excessive number of roots will .iot be cut off. Preserve all'the roots possibly and keep plenty of soil attached,to keep the roots from drying out. Large plants should be pruned back or thinned out to counteract the loss oi roots. General outdoor requiremente for each plant will be approximately the same indoors; for example, a stmloving plant should be placed in a sunny location indoors. Temperatures not over 70 degrees are best for indoor plants, and some authorities advise moving the plants into a cool room during the night. Plants also do better if the' humidity of, the room is above 50 per cent. All plants respond to monthly applications of fertilizer. Most of the soluable packaged fertilizers on the market can be used when directions are followed carefully. After blooming, .the anmials should be discarded, but perennials may be returned to their original location outdoors next spring. The autumn flowers, grasses and leaves found this time of year along the roadside, in pastures, in woodlots and in your garden, can furnish beautiful winter bouquets, And, here are some hints to help you preserve them quickly and easily. Cure branches of autumn leaves. Just crush the cut ends of the stems and place them in a solution of one-half glycerine and one-half water for at least a week. If you store the branches in a cool place during the curing period, they will retain their beauty. .Those big, plump cattails should be' gathered in the next week or so while they're still firm. A coat of clear spray lacquer (even hair spray) will help preserve them. The seed pods of sycamore and locust trees need only drying to make them useful in winter bouquets. Mild indirect lighting is desirable for television viewing. Bright lights and television make more than one center of attraction which is distracting to eyes. A dark room gives too much contrast between the screen and tha surrounding space. Make sure that your family uses the correct lighting when viewing so that it will not be injurious to the eyes. To keep trousers well pressed, use a hanger with a guard. If a plain hanger is the only t y n available, avoid hanger wrinkles by these steps. Lay the trousers on a bed or other flat surface. Drape about a quarter of one t r o u s e r leg over hanger bar. Drape the other leg similarly but in the other direction. Then hanig trousers. The friction between the fabrics will keep the trousers in place. COW POKES By Ace. "This place beats any of the Seven Wonders of the World , it s a wonder we ain't starved io death!"
