There should be just as much thought and as much judgment given to the choosing of the proper sweeps as is given to choosing the pi ope r cultivator. DI In a recent visit, to the Stoneville Experimental Station at Stoneville, Miss., we had the opportunity to hear Mr* William E. Meek, who is director of this worth wliilc organization,-make-aivhour's talk on SVvocps alone. For high speed cultivation Mr. Meeks recommends an 8" "Joyce'' sweep which! he has successfully tested at-cultivating speeds up to eight miles an hour with -unusually good results. Dl • He also recommends setting the sweeps on a smooth surface, he having set them on a concrete floor in preference to setting them in the field, so thai the sweeps set flat working on the theory that there is enough lost motion in ,the cultivator fool to give the proper pilch w.hen it lakes I lie ground. Under no circumstances docs lie advocate using sweeps until they arc worn so -badly as to lose their effectiveness. We have purchased our sweep stock using Mr. Meek's recommendations and \vo want you to feel, when you buy your swoops from us,, that yon are getting the right sweep for the job. -Dl- We have cither 3/1G" or ]/<!" sweeps of a very high carbon content which we have found from experience are hard enough (o last under the sandy conditions lliaf 'we arc confronted with in Mississippi County yet are strong enough that (hey an: not continuously breaking when runnino- i nt<> or under ground slumps If you haven't heard International Harvester's "Harvest of.
