A minimum of 5 acres of soybeans in one rectangular plot is required to enter the contest, Entries close July 1, and growers are tirged to get their entries in at Ottce, in order that necessary records on seeding and cultural prac- 'tices will be accurate. Prizes -will be awarded on the basis ot yield, with the restriction that the harvested seed must meet the requirements of at least the >Jo. 2 federal grade in all factors other than moisture and that moisture must not exceed 18 per cent. To be eligible for prizes, a record must be submitted telling the rate and date of seeding, variety, seedbed preparation, preceding crop, fertilization, cultivation and method ot harvesting.

Asked to Apply Efficient Cropping System for Weeds Land owners and tenants having sizable areas of noxious weeds are telng asked by local weed com- iOnei's and the county board of ^orjB^j io apply the most effl- .rpp'ping system . or control methods.', tbit wlfl result in "the least possible acreage, .of idle land r this year. t John Hinrlchs, county we,efl ; com- mlssioners, estimates more than 1000 acres of Humboldt County land Infested with noxious weeds ; are requiring special attention and •programs of weed control. ;'•- He points out the fact that, many .thousands ot dollars are lost an- (nnally from this acreage because loss of crops not adapted tor d"control. Also the fact that "acreage-is needed to help meet -special war effort of oji pro- clng crops such as soybeans. , : 'Mr. Hinrichs suggests the follow- ng steps to avoid'idle acreage this year: 1. Practice weekly summer fallow or cultivate with a good tillage Implement until about June 10-16 being certain that growth of weeds has been thoroughly curtailed. 2. Following that date seed such areas to a good mother crop such as sudau grass, millet, cane, or <«oybeans,at a heavy rate of seed- Ing so as to provide as much growth aa possible. Thorough seed bed preparation should be applied for seeding of soybeans. It is also advisable when planting cultivated row crops such as soybeans or corn to plant in rows running east and west instead of north aiid south so as to provide greater amounts of Shade on the ground during longer hours ot the day. Store June Surplus Grasses and Legumes in Silo For Later This year, when every effort is being made to keep dairy cows at peak production, it might be a good idea to store some of Juno's surplus grasces and legumes in the silo for August and September when pastures are short, say extension dairymen at Iowa State College. A silo can well be used to preserve the excess pasturage, when during the wet spring seasons, the fvestock are unable to consume all ot the rapidly growing grass. It Is also useful in preserving such crops as sweet clover or first cut- itig alfalfa which may be coarse, for-that matter, any hay -jiop EH the weather i» unfavorable for hay making. Welcome Later During dry, hot mid-summers, If no supplementary pasture Is available, silage can be used as summer feed. If not needed at this time, it can be fed any time—even during late winter when the corn silage which may have been put on top of it, has been used up. It Is sometimes a welcome feed late in win- I ter. While farmers may not be able to get ample supplies of molasses for making grass and legume silage this year because of wartime demands, they can still make such silage successfully. Many Iowa farmers have discovered that good legume and grass silage may be made by adding ground shelled corn and cob meal to the crop as it is put Into the silo. If tgO to 250 pounds of ground corn is added per ton of forage, preservation is reasonably good and the palatabillty of the silage i improved. Green corn would be L more effective preservative wltl legume crops than ground corn grain but it can be used only with late crops, such as soybeans, late alfalfa crops and others. Ungrounc shelled corn is not satisfactory. Moisture Important 'Tests carried' on for several year Indicate that a good grade of grass silage can be made without preservatives if the moisture content is not more than 68 percent. Forage with this percentage ot moisture will not ooze out of the silo and many farmers use this as a guide in determining when to put the grass in the silo. Success with this method depends upon 'fine chopping, a tight si)o, and topping off with about 3 feet of heavy green material. Grass or legume silage develops a bad odor only when two conditions—high moisture and low acidity are present at the same time. If the moisture content is high and the acidity is also high, as is the case when a preservative is used, the silage keeps well, Similarly, if moisture content and acidity are both low, which occurs when no preservative is used but forage is allowed to wilt, silage also keeps well. coaitftfftfelU. „ tire trnptemetn should be ly cleaned, recommends B6«ald~R. stmthers, agricultural engineer at Iowa State College. When implements receive proper care and storage, they not only last much longer, but can be pat back Into service much more quickly, he points out. And repair parts are going to become harder to obtain as the war progresses. Check over the endgate seeder for repairs before putting it away, Order fans, gears, chains, or other parts which are no longer usable, cover all worn, shiny sheet metal parts with crankcases oil or paint :o protect them from rust. When discing is completed go over the disc. Inspect boxings, rease pipes and fltt.lngs, frame jolts and hitch. Give the dicks a oating of oil. Oraln drills should be thoroughly leaned before storing. Paint grain ubns with oil to protect from rust vhlle the machine is idle. All bolts should be tightened on he spike tooth harrow. The draw nr shnnir) be inspected. i As soon as the corn and beans I are !n, the plantershould be check- i c;! over. Fertiliser boxes should bo cleaned thoroughly and painted with oil since most fertilizers have a corrosive action on metals. The pltintor shoes should have a protective coating of oil. If it is impossible to put repairs on the machine as soon as they arrive, wire (hem to the Implement BO that they will not become lost, Stmthers adivses.

MYRTLE HEWITT HELD CANNING DEMONSTRATIONS Msrtle Hewitt, Home Demonstration Agent for Humboldt county , has been holding a series of canning demonstrations in various parts ot the county. Demonstrations have been conducted at the Vernon consolidated school, at Mode, Humboldt, Bradgate, Gilmore City and Tior.
