K-State Picks Seed Agency The Kansas Crop Improvement Association has received authorization from Kansas State University to function as a seed Chemical Sprayers Must Register THE OTTAWA HERALD B Wednesday, May 1, 19fi3 a ^> The Kansas Legislature has given the State Board of Agriculture the responsibility of administering a new chemical spray law. Previously, only aerial spray operators needed to register in the form of offering a bond. The new law covers persons wjio apply chemicals with ground or air equipment and requires them to obtain a license. This does not include termite or household chemical treatment firms as they brown s Bylines By DON BROWN certifying agency in for the coming crop INDIGNANT — This little pig went to school but, from (he look of things, against its wishes. He was brought to Hutchinson's Winan School to help teach children about farms, However, he squirmed so hard when held that Sheri Jones, whose mother brought him to school, had to put him back in his special carrying case. and plant the state year. State law requires that the university designate an official agency to perform this service annually. The authorization is accompanied by a list of varieties eligible for certification in Kansas in 1963. Fifty-two varieties of 10 different crops are listed. Those on the list for the first time are Kanlow switchgrass, Clark 63 soybeans and Tascosa wheat. Kanota oats has been removed from the list. "In addition to the list of va- Jolly Workers Honor Week BID RAKING rieties," Fowler, according secretary, to Wayne "the Crop Improvement Association can provide certification service on a number of corn hybrids, sorghum hybrids and standard sorghum varieties, none of which is specifically recommended by the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station." Princeton Jolly Workers Home Demonstration Unit has made plans to celebrate Kansas Home Demonstration Week, this week. At the beginning of the year the unit chose Mexico to study as part of the Kansas Home Demonstration Council's "International Relations." Today a family night was held at the Princeton City Hall. After a potluck supper, Ralph Marts showed slides of Mexico to members and their families and guests. A window exhibit in Princeton will be on display all during this lome Demonstration Week dis- rict meeting at Topeka. Dr. Marjorie Stith, head of the Department of Family and Child Development, Kansas State University, Manhattan, will speak on Bringing up Parents" and Mrs. Winona Starkey, extension home furnishings specialist, will present, "Trends in Home Furnishings." Mrs. Starkey is a former Home Economics Agent from Franklin County, members will attend the Kansas topic of this exhibit to People" and in- week. The is "People eludes our chosen Mexico. The exhibit was prepared by Mrs. Leon Burrichter, Mrs. Lewis Froggatte and Mrs. Leroy Wasmund. Thursday, a number of the unit are included in other regulations. Farmers who are doing their own application or are exchanging work with neighbors are nol included in the requirements ol the chemical spray law. Floyd Higdon, county weed supervisor, has a copy of this law, and you may review it il you feel it might affect you. This again is the season o heavy tractor use, and the neec for proper daily tractor mainten ance. Even though a tractor has jus been overhauled, regular main tenance is still required for opli mum performance. A Kansa State University study showed that proper servicing of the air cleaner alone increased power bj 7.6 per cent and decreased fuc consumption 11.4 per cent on 1 per cent of the tractors tested There is more Kansas beef 01 the Plains and on the plate to day than ever before.

The rale of growth of all pha- cs of the cattle business is more apid in Kansas than in the Uni- ed Slates as a whole, or any oth- Great Plains livestock slate, Coppersmith says. Kansas has in- rcased cattle on feed by 117 per cnt and beef cows by 41.6 patent since 1958. Yet the total number of animals on farms in January, 1963, iad increased only 31.8 per cent. Jccause of its location near the arge supplies of feeder cattle lo he south and west, Kansas has been able to import needed cat- le to put on feed. The present upswing in the cat- le cycle in Kansas came after » scries of years when rainfall was insufficient for adequate grain and forage production. The 958-fi2 period has been a good one from the standpoint of feed production. Hybrid sorghums have made ncreased yields possible. The production of grain sorghum in L962 was about 3V4 times that of the annual average during the 1951-56 period.
