At present, tali-sown grain, including wheat, grey oatsBjid Ros-sen rye and many clovei'Ttelds are providing the best pasture for spring lambs. Native pastures are aiso looking wen, as grass got a good start before the cold weather oi February. Sometimes a little juggling of fields in order to save good leed that is not needed for oilier livestock is all that is necessary to have a good pasture ready February on through, says Lind-gien.

Those in charge are racing against time in order to have a workable plan ready before spring planting has proceeded too far in the early sections to allow farmers to qualify under the provisions of the act. The aim is to get the best possible program under way for 1936 but with the idea of improving it for 1937 with more time and experience available. Assistant Secretary Wilson believes the new farm act, prooerly applied, will insure an adequate future supply of food and fibre from America's farms for oncoming generations, by providing extra compensation for mers of today who use practices which will tend to conserve rather than mine soil resources. Much attention at the Salt Lake meeting has been given to working out procedure applicable to the peculiar problems of far. western agriculture. In some sections the most pressing conservation problem is conservation of water, it was brought out, as it indirectly means conservation of soil. .

Their combination of color, form and texture immediately arrests the attention of the flower lover. They ate always fresh and attractive aiVd) they are in great variety, from the double sorts which are frequently grown as pot plants, as well as in the garden, including those fringed and ruffled, larje flowered ones, to the single trailing or border types which may be seen growing on the hillside and along the highways where they receive little attention The seeds of petunias are very small and should be sown in flats for later transplanting, mixing the seed with sand to give a better distribution. Fill a flat with good loamy snil, press and smooth the surface. Ojroadcast the seed and cover lightly with a mulch of peat humus, fine screened leaf mold or some ' similar material. Kept thoroughly moist, the seeds will germinate readily and if grown in the sunshine they will grow rapidly and develop plants in a very short time. Outstanding varieties including pink triumph, California giants, Flk's pride, ruffled giants, New Dwarf giants and others. Haleony petunias are tall trailing sorts which may be trained on a trellis to provide a very beautiful display. All of these varieties are available at dealers in dated packets to assuie freshness.
