Burke (Dem., Net).], a leader of opposition to President Roosevelt's court pro- grnm, jirediclccl loday thai a ina- Joi'Ky of the senate jndlclnry committee v.'ould oppose a favorable report lo Hie senate on the courl bill. "Tlio results of the first week ol hearings sit which opponents of the bill have leslifled have been very satisfactory," Bmke said.. ''I believe there will be a majority of the judiciary committee opposed to the bill and possibly the yule will' be 11 to 7 against." buike criticized the statement of Fi'dcrtil Judge Rohcrt Lee Williams, who said before his nomination for Hie circuit court of appeals that he would retire at 70. He Ls now 08. Burke conferred, with Senator Frederick Van Nuys (Dem., Did) and Senator William H. King (Dem., Wall), both foes of the measure, in regard lo procedure. Dean young B. Smith of Co-' lumbla university law faculty also participaled in ihe conference..

Burke said he was in favor of a vote on the president's bill as it now stands rather than seeking to change it in committee. PAGE THREE Rites for M.

Soybeans can b; plumed any lime between April 15 and July 1. Most satisfactory results will usual- be s?:'ui'ed in soybeans planted during the monlh of May. The aclunl dais of planting will of course depend considerably upon locnl conditions, amount of Ullage already given thy Held, warmth of the soil, etc. A well prejurrd seed bed, free of weeds and warm, is of more Imnorlance than trie actual date of planting. Unless soybeans an 1 inoculated, they are no more a soil-improving •:>'0i) Din n corn. As a mattjr of fact, unlnocnUited beans arc very heavy feeders. Inoculation of the seed is cheap and easy to do. but II must be arranged and done bc- . frre IK' seed is planted. A good I plan Ls to inoculate a day ahead \ of planling to secure ih» l>?st results. Method of 1'hntiiij; The method usetl in planting soybeans Is bound (o be governed • lo omc extent, by the equipment vailable. However, certain deli- litely proved facts should bs carc- ully considered in this connection. Tesls TOverln? many years indicate .hat there is n-H very rnuc'i dlf- rercifc? in yield between solid seed- ng (usi»a a grain drill with everj :iole fcedlnyl and seeding in rows 21 lo 22 inches apart. Wider rows always reduce the yield direcllv in >roporlion to the Increase in width. No cotton farmer would expect o maximum yield of cotton if the rows were C feel apart. In a llkr>' manner, the yield of soybeans will if wider rows than 22 liir ?hes arc used. Some Implement companies now have available a combination planter and cultivator. These nppsitr to be unusually satisfactory for planting and cultivating soybeans in rows. In our northern commercial districts these row' planters. plant- Ing four or six rows at a time, are proving very .satisfactory. When beans are planted solid, oiif 'commercial districts haye found the grain drill lo be enlirely satisfactory. Depth o( naming The depth of planting is a very important factor hi getting a satisfactory stand. -Too deep planting has caused more poor stands of beans than poor seed. Soybeans colored varieties 'which ore usually better adapted for hay than for seed production. In a case where a grower plants a sizeable acreage, there Is some advantage In using iwo varieties, one maturing earlier than the oilier, so as to provide a better labor distribution at the time of harvesting, Bused on llic available Information, It would seem that the D«lsta, Mnmloxt, and Arksoy are the best varieties Uxlay. It Is possible lhat the Macoupin should also bu considered ns un earlier mnlurlng variety, especially for planting following spinach. These tmir varieties are excellent yleldenc of seed, do not shatl*r when ripe, and,under average conditions do not lod-je but .stand up in un excellent manner for combining.
