Kern Wheat Crop "SpotteOcport Kern county's 1',I44 wheat crop has been exceedingly spotted in regards to yield per acre, Marc A. Lindsay, farm adviser, reported today. Some area." in the county have produced fairly good crops while in other areas the crop will not be harvested due to lack of rainfall to bring the crop through to maturity. The harvesting of the crop, according to Mr. Lindsay, is slow this year because of lack of equipment and qualified crews to get the crop out of the field on time. California's wheat crop turned out better than had been expected, the August 1 report of California Crop and Livestock Reporting .Service stated, because of cool weather that prolonged the ripening weather. Acreage harvested was estimated at .1,14,110(1 acres, or 17 per cent greater than in I!)4I!. Illegal Possession of Coupons Charged T.ostor F.
