Predictions are that in two or three years enough seed will be available for nearly all farmers, with the resulting increase in oats yield. (Ai- gona Upper Des Moines Newsfoto).

I Fathers Exempted In-an effort to provide poten- 'tial recruits, the 26 to 20-year- old bracket was being reclassified, and a new ruling has re- que'sted that men with less than six months previous service be reclassified. Some previous occupational and physical deferments are also being dropped. ••',-. Fathers will be exempt, ' : the board said, and therefore f any registrant who has-be- come a father since becom- ' ing listed in the draft, had better report the fact to the ' draft board to prevent being placed in 1-A. ; There is no quota system based on age. Draft boards will not take so many of any one age, but will get whom they ; can in the 19-29 group inclusive. A. General Outline. The s two-month draft holiday, during' July and August, ends Sept. 1. The main outline of new. rules regarding drafting, is as follows: 1—Those drafted will be 19 through 29. • 2—Youths still -in high school can get deferred. Not so with college youths. If called, they will not be allowed to finish out a quarter or'semester unless the draft board makes some special exception. v 3—Fathers will not be drafted, nor will men with extreme hardship cases. But a man will not be deferred because of dependents. 4—Every man to the 19-29 bracket who has had an occupational deferment will be re-examined. The rule here is very tough. Farm Deferments Selective Service boards have been told not to defer anyone unless he js "indispensable and irreplaceable in. the national existence." / Farm workers will still get some speplal consideration, and deferment for farm wprkars will probably toe greater than fpr any " • kind of work, Bancroft goes to State Baseball Bancroft won its way into the anfateur .baseball touwa- Sunday at Bancroft, down* 4}gQ|ja, 6 tq 0, in the district ' , ; .... . :' -• ../ . of Rapcrpft pitch' gajne, , • -. will be »n its way ijito the . l-ptts Greek, ; §«tur(iay -.& §sgrmg three rujis g thj |eyf nth.

"' ' t W( erf sniery in» ' 13 COUNTY FARMS HAD TEST PLOTS FOR GROWING SEED The first tabulated results of *est seed plots of the famed "Clinon Oats" in Kossuth county are "*t coming in, with some remarkable results Of the 13 Kossuth farmers se- 'ected to grow test plots for seed ourposes. reports from four have been received, .showing that the average yield per acre of this new variety runs from 60 bushels to 100 .bushels to the acre. Raised on 13 Farms. Clarence Mawdsley of Irvinglon had perhaps the highest yield of all, with 'his 13 acres averaging ibout 100 bushels. G. M. Will of LuVerne reported a yield of about Qf bushels to the acre. Harvey Reid's farm near Ai- gona, four miles north of Hobar- .on, ran from 70 to 80 bushels of he Clinton oats. Andrew Miller from near Alrona had a yield of about 60 bushels. .. Other farmers who planted test plots of Clinton oats were Henry ?. Weber, LuVerne; Donald Ush- jr, Ottosen; Art Benschoter, Ai- gona; H. A. Holmgren, Lone Rock; rlonald Ontman, Burt; Harvey Larson, Armstrong; S. F. Blome, Elmpre.iMinn.; .and A. E. Nelson, Fenton. : -..': . '.':'. : ,i Anderson's plot was hailed out. 15 bushels to the acre this .year, County Agent A. L. Brown said, rie pointed out thaLthe Clinton variety was generally planted on the oest ground available and that commercial fertilizer was used in most cases, which should all add up to a bigger yield. Ordinary oats under 'the same special treatment, le believed, would probably run at least five bushels more to the acre. In commenting on the Clinton variety, Mr. Brown was of the opinion that the chief virtues of the new oats was that they were more disease resisting, and tha the stiffness of the straw was much setter. These two elements alone should bring a generally better yield. Had 65 Applications. Arrangements for planting the test plots of Clinton oats in the county were made toy the county seed distribution committee. Applications were received from 65 farmers to grow the test plots in Kossuth county, tthis group was finally weeded to 17, and the list sent to Iowa State college wjiere the selection of the final 13 growers was made. Each grower agreed to two :hings: 1—To grow certified seed on noxious weed-free ground. 2—TO grow from 25 to 45. bushels of seed. Swamped With Orders. Chief problem now is that the demand for Clinton oats seed is far greater then the supply. Farm experts say that it will cake several years of growing seed before the demand from all dlrec- ;ions*can toe met. This past year ;very county in the state had growers selected for producing seed, similar to Kossuth. County growers will in turn sell ;heir oats as seed 'for next year's :rop. There will be equal distribution so far as possible, -but everyone cannot have the oats at once. Thoge in this area who have n'rown the oats for seed have already been swamped with request, for the purchase of the oats, anc this gtory>is intended merely tc give the news and information on results pf $evsral test ; plots, 'and not to stampede the farmers men- ioned with a deluge of new orders for seed, when they already have more.requests "than, they can handle for next year.

Raymond Barslou, Ledyard, pilot of ihe plane, was in an Mankaio, Minn., hospital in a serious condition, and Dan Froehlich of Ai- gona was in a less serious condition in ihe Kossuth hospital, Aigona !, The accident • happened ''about 6:30 p. m. Sunday, as the two men were taking a final flight before darkness came. C, A, A. io Investigate Just how the accident happened is not known. Barslou, the pilot, was in such a condition that official statements had not been obtained. Dan Froehlich was released from ihe • Kossuth hospital today. . Examination disclosed thai no serious injuries Jo his back had been : suffered. Froehlich said that just before the crSsh, as the men were circling to land Barslou called to him and said: "I don't know what's the matter, she won't pull out" or words io that effect. The • motor did • not stall, but either the stick or rear .tail flap assembly would not work, and the plane kept on ; its course into ihe ground. Civil Aeronautics Authority representatives were slated to make an investigation of the mishap today. Sheriff Art J. Cogley, who went to the scene ; of the crash Sunday evening, was instructed "by the C. A. AY office to keep the plane i at the., site pf the crash until > an Inveesj tigation was 'made. ."• '<"•" : ; ? So far as is known, this is ,, the first 'accident :;in.

Kossuth; and "Bob, 'also are pilots.: ', Think Control Stuck ,f As the story was pieced together Monday, Barslpu and Froehlich'took off for a short trip about 6 p, m. They were preparing to'land when the mishap .occurred. Making one run at Barslou's landing field, which is on his own farm, they'did not land on the first attempt as the weeds in that spot seemed too high. They went out for another turn preparatory to coming n again, and at this point it ;eems the stick jammed as the jlane nosed down. The plane was not exceeding- ngly high in the air, and it glid- .•d into the plowed field on the lay Wentworth farm, adjacent to the Barslou place. Hitting the plowed land,- the machine took . several bounces, ind then nosed over violently on its back. ' Barslou was knocked unconscious, but Froehlich was able to crawl from the wreckage. Knocked Unconscious Hemme Troff, a farmer living nearby, saw the accident; and, .lurried to the field. He and ?roehlich pulled Barslou from the wreckage, and then went to '.he Wentworth farm, where Del- belt Wetworth, a son of Ray, was home. They obtained a pail of water /and return to Barslou, finally reviving ' him. Doctors from Swea City were called, and after a brief examination of the pilot's injuries, Barslou was taken to Blue Earth .for emergency treatment, and then to Mankato. He suffered four broken spinal vertebrae, and a frac* iured upper and lower jaw, as well as other injuries, U was learned Monday morning. •'••'• Froehlich was given emergency treatment and later in the" evening brought back to the Kossuth hospital in an ambulance, where he was being treated* for a bad gash on the head, «. broken finger, and back injui ; es.
