SEES ii¥s OF 193] DUST WAVES Ncbntsku Agronomist Konr-N Thry Will Ho Worse Tlinn in HKK5 Killing of Poultry Is Made Humane fUnttet Prtu 1,r,aitil Wire) S AN FRANCISCO, Sept. 17.— An "eleotrlo chair" for chickens, turkeyi, geete and tquaba has been Invented by two San Francisco technicians and Is being subjected to tests here. The Inventors are confident that It will revolutionize the preparation of birds for market. With the new machines, which have a voltage of from 1000 to 1500 volts, according to the size of the chicken v,r turkey, the legs of each bird are clamped on a moving belt. Then a clamp reaches out, seizes the fowl's head and presses It against an electrode with a minimum of 1000 volts. A more humane and sanitary system of preparing poultry for the market Is the goal of the Inventors.

Last year tho total acreage certified was 362 acres. In 1933, the total acreage was slightly more than 83. Of the 628 acres eligible for certification this year, 23C>/6 acres aro Netted Gems, 131 White Rose, 142 British Queen. 15 Burbank, 3 Katah- din, and 1!£ Bliss Triumph. Tho Tulo lako district, near the Oregon line, In Slsklyou and Modoc counties, leads In eligible, acreage, with 240 Vj. Tho Sonoma-Marln counties district IB second with 108 acres. Htimboldt county has 77 acres, the Santa Maria district in Ranta Barbara county 100 acrus, and Shasta county 2Mi acres. Early this season certified seed potato growers filed applications calling for Inspection of 074 Vi acres. BecaiiHO of tho rigid pathological requirements, 14814 acres of tho preliminary total were rejected by tho ! department or withdrawn by grow- j ers. Rejections wero made by tho bureau of fruit and vegotablo standardization In Bonip instances because of tho presence of virus diseases and varietal mixture. In other cases stock was planted too close to stock which was liable to transmit disease. . TURK AFIRE HUFFIKLD, Conn.. Sept. 19. (U.

Henceforth Will Ask Ballot of Membership Before Deciding Policies tjURM BUREAU members of Kern •*- county are being given an opportunity to havo a direct voice in establishing a position of the state federation on three important is- suea, it was announced today by T. M. Martin, secretary of the Kern County Farm Bureau. The three issues pertain to questions appearing on the November ballot, namely: No. 7 on civil service; No. 22, the chain store tax, and 23, relative to tho railroad commlBsion. Securing the membership vote on these IMBUOS, according to Mr. Martin, is the first time that such an opportunity 1ms been presented to tho members of the organization and Is being done in accordance with a policy adopted by the board ot directors of tho California Farm Bureau Federation, in which it is planned to secure tho opinion of Its members before taking a stand on Important IHHUCS pertaining to agriculture. Mr. Martin explained that by securing tho direct vote of tho people, tho state federation could better represent the membership on important issues. The plan of \-oting on these Issues, Mr. Martin said, Is to present the question and allow the members In their center meetings to discuss the question and then take a secret ballot ut tho meeting. This procedure Is carried on throughout the state in overy farm center and these results tublulated from each county and for- xx'arded to tho headquarters of tho stato federation.

Sept. 19.—The canning peach Industry board reported today that a total of 282,547.2-1 I tons of peaches had been canned In i California this year up to and in| eluding September 12. i It was estimated that not more ' than 600 tons more would be packed Jby tho end of the season. ; Of the total. 231,440.68 tons wero i packed as canned peaches, 28,853.90 I tons as fruit cocktail and fruits for salad, and £262.66 tons were packed as pickled peaches. Growers and packers previously agreed each to contribute BO cents a ton for a national advertising campaign for tho industry, and on the basis of the tonnage packed It was estimated $240,000 would be available for this campaign. 4 « » . Succeeding Droughts Lead to Wide Discussion. by Midwest Farmers (United Preii Lcated Wire} LINCOLN. Neb., Sept. 19.—Many Nebraska farmers aro talking irriga- :lon as a practical method of fighting the drought and lesser dry years. They note that the Irrigated North Platto valley of western Nebraska expects to produce 60-bushel corri, a jood sugar beet harvest and other crops, despite tho worst drought known to this state. Robert H. Willis, chief of >the state jureau of irrigation, says an increas- ng number of farmers are using pump irrigation in eastern Nebraska where the rainfall In other years was sufficient. Irrigation, Willis pointed out. Is possible only when water is available and when tho land Is not too hilly. Dry-land farmers of Box Butto and Cheyenne counties in the west are petitioning federal officials for funds for rrlgatlon experiments. Of Nebraska's 93 counties, 88 are counties are Ncnmlm, only eastern Disgruntled Man Appeasedby Chief 1 (Anoclaied Preii Leaned Wire) \ DALLAS, Sept. 19.—The tiixl i driver, disgruntled over a traffic ticket, complained to his fare: "Lousy policemen, Just waiting around to hand some poor guy a ! ticket." ! Alighting tho passenger gave him a 16-cent tip "for coffee and dough nuts to cool off on," and handed him a card reading: "Police Chief U. L. (Bob) Jones." "When you've cooled off," said tho chief, "go to that policeman and i apologize for the things you'vo called | him and toll him to report to mo." I Tho ticket was dismissed. Understanding Essential Needs Is Assistance . in Good Farming By FRANK HORNKOHL, A PLANT cannot grow to mator- •"•Ity unless a sufficient supply of each essential element cornea to it from the soil. From the standpoint of their relative food value as raw materials for plant food, the elements which are present in the soil may be divided into three classes, namely, the nonessentlal, the essential and abundant, and the critical elements. Tho first class includes silicon, aluminum, sodium, manganese, and certain other rarer elements which sometimes are found in soils of some special typo, or unusual origin These elements seem to have no rola to play in tho nutrition ot plants; although silicon is always present in plant ash and sodium are found in small quantities in all parts of practically all plants. Nearly all species of plants can be grown to full maturity In the entire absence of these elements from their culture medium. Occasional exceptions to this statement in the case of special types of .plants aro known, and aro of Interest in special studies of plant adaptions, but need not be considered, here, Analysis Shows Needs The second group Includes iron* calcium, magnesium, and sulphur. All of those elements are essential for plant grbwth, but are usually present in the soil in quantities • to Insure a sufficient supply In available form for plant food. Recent investigations have shown, however, that there are many soils in which sulphur is present in • such limited, quantities that many agricultural crops, when grown on these soils, respond favorably to the application of sulphur-containing fertilizers. In such coses, sulphur is a "critical" element. •Tho "critical" elements are thoso which are essential to tho growth-'.of all plants and which are present \fi most soils in relatively small proper" tlons. Any ono may, therefore, bo tho limiting factor in plant growth so far as plant food is concerned. Theso are nitrogen, phosphorus, and (often) sulphur and calcium.
