WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1947 THE JOURNAL-STANDARD, FREEPORT, ILL. PHONE FOUR WANT ADS 3100 FARM NEWS Membership In Farm Bureau Reaches 2,223 Township units of the Stephenson county farm bureau have just completed holding annual meetings which marked the close of the 194647 membership year. I ^ At these meetings' the members were informed that the membership in the farm bureau has grown from 1,922 in 1946 to 2,223 as of Sept. 30, 1947, according to Leslie Finkenbinder, organization director. Membership in the farm bureau has been on the increase all over the state, according to Mr. Finkenbinder, as shown by the all-time high of 145,851. This is the largest membership ever obtained by any state farm organization in the history of the nation. Other accomplishments of the farm bureau during the past year will be reviewed and plans made for the coming year at the annual meeting to be held in St. Louis on Nov. 17 to 20. Declares Weather Ideal For Picking Of Hybrid Seed Corn Bloomington, 111., Oct. 22.—The weather man has been trying his best to make up for the wet and cold spring that delayed the planting of many acres of corn, declares Dr. J. R. Holbert, manager of the Funk Brothers Seed company. About 100 per cent of the corn crop is now so matured that frost could cause very little damage and each day of weather such as has prevailed during the past week or two will aid greatly in drying the corn before it is placed in the crib. Associate seed growers in Iowa, he said, are two-thirds done with their picking of hybrid seed, and in the Bloomington area the picking is about one-half completed. . The weather has been so fine that picking has been delayed to permit more drying in the field than usual. As a rule seed producers pick their corn early and dry is artificially to be sure it will not be injured by frost or infected with plant disease organisms during the slow natural drying period. "Still A Bad Crop" A lot of corn that would have been soft in a normal fall season now promises fair yields and fair quality, he said. Some fields in this area still show green, the kernels still filling out with the food substance that brings weight and qualtty to the crop. "I still call it a bad corn crop," said Dr. Holbert. "This territory is blessed with better weather for planting and cultivation than most of the corn belt." He told of a recent trip to Kansas City, seeing many poor stands of corn in fields along the route, many late fields, many drowned out patches. There was only half a normal stand of corn in a good portion of all the fields. Even the most ideal weather now can't make up for the extreme late planting in many areas, and* the heavy rains in June. Parts of Iowa got 18 inches of rainfall In June— half a normal year's total rain coming in one month. Great areas of corn were drowned out. Many fields could not be cultivated. Some Jo Daviess Oats Bins Are Found Infested By Weevil Elizabeth, 111., Oct. 22.—Reports have been received at the office of the Jo Daviess county farm bureau here of oats in bins infested with weevil. County Adviser E. V. Stadel is asking all farmers to inspect their grain to determine if the weevil has been their visitor. The weevil is a very small brown tc reddish colored insect that can be readily seen on samples taken from the bin. If weevil are found they can be controlled by using carbon bisul- phide at the rate of 3 gallons per 1,000 bushels of grain or one pound for each 100 cubic feet of grain. This chemical can be poured on burlap sacks and the bags spread over the t&p of the grain. The carbon bisulphide is heavier than air and will filter down through the grain. The user is cautioned not to breathe the fumes nor to use it around fire as it is inflammable. Moore's Watch Shop 125 E.
