This will destroy all kinds of soil-borne pests. Shurtleft points out that fungi, bacteria, nematodes and various insects often carry over from plant to plant in the soil. They interfere with best plant growth. Chemical treatments will also give control, but they often leave toxic residues. The heat treatment is therefore preferred. ShurtlefT says: Start with soil that is loose, free of lumps and coarse debris, and slightly moist. Spread the soil about two to three inches denp in a pan. Bake it in an oven at 180 to 200 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour. Another method is: Place the soil in pots. Heat the pots in a pressure cooker or a rack above boiling water in a covered receptacle—such as a kettle or wash boiler. Heating times for different- sized pots with the pressure-cooker (pressure valve set at 10 pounds pressure) are: With the pressure valve set at 10 pounds for a three- inch pot, 10 minutes; four-inch pot, 15 minutes; six-inch pot, 30 minutes. Double the heating time if you use boiling water without pressure. Stir and air the heat-treated soil for several days before sowing seed or transplanting, Shurtlefl recommends. With large soil masses it's best to spread the soil in a layer nnd wet it down once or twice during the drying period. This removes any toxic compounds produced in the soil by the heating process. ft is specially advised if the soil is heavily fertilized. Be careful to avoid recontamina- ting the soil by contact with dirty surfaces or utensils, or by replanting with diseased plants.

Extension Safety Specialist Norval Wardle of Iowa State University says most of these accidents occur on country roads. Reasons for the high proportion of fatal accidents on roads and highways, Wardle says, are: The driver is "half-blind" since he lacks a rear view mirror on his tractor to see what is behind him. The noise of the tractor makes him "entirely deaf" to sounds of aproaching cars. He is a "sitting duck" because he has no protective cab or body around him. When the farmer takes his tractor on the road he is practically "parking" in a high-speed traffic lane. The speed differences between his tractor and other vehicles on a highway is almost as great as that between a parked car and a moving car on the highway. Wardle urges farmers not to drive tractors on the roads unless it is absolutely necessary. He suggests intalling a rear-view mirror and a dual-color warning flag on any tractor that may be driven on the road. Attach the flag to a standard that raises the flag two to three feet above the head of the driver, he advises. ^IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMllllllllllMMlMlllllllllltlllMllllllllllliH^ SPECIAL I PAINT I ) VALUES 1 LATEX WALL I PAINT White & Beautiful Colonri | ONLY $g 75 GAL | BOY'S SECTIONAL — CLASS "A" -1 BASKETBALL FEBRUARY 20 - 21 TO URN AM EM 23 - 25 at POSTVIllf Calmar, So.

By Bill JVojtech, Manager, Purina Poultry Chow Sales It will soon be the time of year when we all get the urge to start some baby chicks and dig in the garden. And, with egg prices as they have been in the midwest, chances are the urge for baby chicks will be pretty strong. No doubt, many are asking themselves, "Just how many chicks should I start?" A Good Year Predicted — 1961 looks like a good year for the efficient producer. Commercial flocks probably will be expanded slightly on the strength of current prices, provided individual market situations justify expansion. In addition, many midwestern farmers are thinking of starting some chicks as a supplement to other farm income. They have the equipment, homegrown grain and the family labor, to produce poultry cheaper than farmers in any other part of the country. Those planning to get into the poultry business should remember that prices may not be as good this fall as last, depending on the number of chicks actually started this spring. But on the whole, this should be a 23021 profitable year for the good poultryman. In planning your chick purchases, let me urge you to buy your chicks from a good, reliable source like your Purina Dealer. If he does not have them, he can help you locate good, thrifty chicks. And be sure to start them out right on Purina Chick Startena. A good start is very important to the future of your pullets, so it pays to put your trust in research- proved Purina Chick StaTt- ena. 10 years of Purina RR behind New PURINA EARLY WE*} PUIINA EARLY WEANING I baby pigs is a highly i highly fortified, highly nutritious feed made for hog- men who plan «*» to wean pigs at three weeks ... or wish to wean pigs earlier.
