(Photo by Lock: Cut by Kuyenay) Exchange of Varieties of Seed by States Is Proving Advantageous WASHINGTON, July 15, Oil- Proof of the accomplishments made through the exchange between states of developments of new seed varieties, with a view toward improved farm crops, is seen especially, says the United States department of agriculture, in the creation of new types of wheat. Efforts in developing and testing new varieties of wheat, the department pointed out, were not national in scope a few years ago, and usually stopped at state lines. Instead, when a good wheat was developed in one state, there was a tendency for other states not to use it, but rather to produce a similar variety. However, the exchange ot ideas and results between states as it is done today, demonstrates what can be accomplished toward the improvement of farm crops, the agricultural department said. An example, the department said, is Ceres, a hard red spring wheat developed by the North Dakota experiment station, which is now be- ing widely grown in other states. "Komar, a sister strain, has been found .best adopted to northern Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming and Colorado. Thatcher, a hard red spring wheat produced in co-opera.tion experiments and distributed by the Minnesota station, is being tested in other states," the department said.

Combining mystifying oriental illusions with modern tap rhythm and an unique study in equilibrium, the Cecil's week-end vaudeville maintained the high entertainment standard established by preceding units in the series of stage shows begun at that theater by Manager Tom Arthur two months ago. An old world flavor pervaded the stage and screen program which featured a magician, a Chinese musician and a film o£ the adventures of that ace detective, Charlie Chan in Egypt. The highlight of the magician's act defied explanation from the layman's viewpoint as a girl was apparently cut into thirds before the eyes of the audience when a huge executioner's knife was passed through a box in which she was secured by stocks. Ming, Chinese artist, proved himself a master of the accordion and various stringed instruments. Paul Kirland proved to the satisfaction of everyone that one needs nothing upon which to lean a ladder. He not only climbed an 18 foot ladder but beat out a tricky rat-a- tat-tat with the ladder's legs while he balanced himself at its top. Clever tap dancing and novelty arrangements by Billie Gerber and the two Williams boys drew rounds of applause at every performance, as did a trained monkey act. Next week-end's stage and screen feature will be announced soon. Accident Last Fall Results in Death OELWEIN, July 15.
