NEWS FOR VETERANS ROGER E.BENGTSON County Service Officer Sweet clover is acceptable feed for dairy cows but can be extremely dangerous if it spoils and molds, U of M dairy specialists warn. When sweet clover spoils, it develops dicoumerol, Dicoumerol thins Hood and cows can hemorrhage to death if they consume excessive quantities of it. Specialists 'advise using clover as hay instead of haylage to minimize the risk of spoilage. You run some risk in the silo, because molding and heating may result instead of good fermentation. A soil probe can be useful tool to help evaluate the potential for replanting or planting a crop. 1 'With a soil probe you can get an idea of where the moisture is in the soil profile," says Roy Thompson, U of M estensfon agronomist. "Recently I looked at a pasture that did not hare a good stand of grass-legume mixture and took a soil probe from it There was about MO inches of soil on the surface moisture. And without a reserve moisture supply the crop would likely fail", he says. "it's doubtful that you have much to gain by attempting to replant a small grain field where the stand is less than desirable. In most cases the topsoil is so dry that a replanted crop won't germinate. There may be some advantage in having low populations that will be able to use the minimum amounts of soil moisture that might be present. A new 104-page dairy barn I and equipment handbook is now ] available. j Special sections of the hand- ; book are devoted to milking herd housing, railing center planning, manure handling, calf housing and feeding equipment. For example, some 60 different plans are included for feeding, handling and other equipment. The "Dairy Housing and Equipment Handbook" is prepared through the Midwest Plan Service which Includes agricultural engineers from the 12 Midwest land-grant universities. The handbook includes research data and on- farm experiences to help with planning new and remodeled dairy facilities. Cost for this new handbook is J3 per copy plus 4 percent sates lax.

To control root maggots, dust the furrow with Diazinon just before planting. Other Crops. Cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower can be planted in June. Pest problems will probably be serious on most of these. Most bush or dwarf green beans can be planted until July 15 in most of the state and July 1 in northern Minnesota. Radishes. Every 10 days throughout the summer you can plant radishes. During the hot dry days of midsummer the soil should be kept moist an£ radishes should be harvested quickly since they tend to become woody. NEW YOBK (AP) - (USDA) - Butter offerings steady.

If rabbits and other animals have damaged your vegetable garden this spring. University of Minnesota horticulturists suggest some plants that can be started late. Carrots can be planted in midsummer, but lack of soil moisture is a serious problem. If root crops are planted in the summer, they should be thinned to at least one inch DEAR ABBY-. I read the letter from the young girl who had been used by her father for sexual pleasure, and I wondered if the girl's mother had provided tight fitting, revealing clothes for her beautiful daughter. When in missionary work in Africa, my wife and I were at a roadside marketplace when a very shapely, young, scantily clad Belgian girl walked by. An African workman remarked (a his companion, "Dimba tshe paka landja!" We knew the language; he said, "The entire body is right outside!" If mothers and daughters conspire to draw Uie attentions of men to their beautiful young bodies, a few fathers cannot help but be overcome by the desires constantly aroused in their own homes. When God-fearing parents advocate modesty, they are not being prudish—they are being realistic and practical. Your comment is true; the father is "sick." But there is a sickness in our society that may have contributed much to that father's malignancy. JAMES STEVENSON, PASTOR WHITEHALL UNITED METHOD1STCHURCH COLUMBUS. OHIO DEAR ABBY: You've had several letters in your column from young girls who have been sexually abused by their fathers, stepfathers or "funny uncles." But I've never seen a letter from a youn g boy who had been used in that way by a female relative. I was that kind of a victim until I was nearly 10 years old, but I was bribed and threatened so I never told anyone. Abby, please continue to alert all parents to keep their eyes open where their children are concerned. And tell young people not to be afraid to report such improper activities to a teacher, a trusted adult friend, relative or even the local police. Also, the Children's Protective Society and/or the county welfare department can help. MY SISTERS VICTIM DEAR VICTIM: I hive, and I shall continue to do M. This problem is f«r more widtaprtad than most peopk suspect. DEAR ABBY: You read so much about unwed mothers who give up their children. Well, what about unwed fathers who would have given their right arm to raise the bsby their mother didn't want? I am the father of two children born out of wedlock, a boy and a girl, who were given up for adoption to strangers. These children were half mine, yet 1 had no say in the matter. I offered marriage to both these girls and was turned down. They weren't teenagers, either. One was 21 and the other was 24. I love children, Abby. and as a single parent I could have given both my children as good a home as their mother could have, if she had wanted them. 1 can cook, sew and keep house as good as any woman can, but the courts don't consider a father's rights Why?
