With both the price of seed oats and demand for feed oats high this year, results ot these tests should be considered in planning spring planting. Tama oats were seeded on Clarion and Webster soils during the 2 years at seeding rates ranging from 1 to 4'/2 bushels to the acre. In 1S42 the best yield was obtained from a seeding rate of 2',2 bushels to the acre; in 1943, ! bushels. In both years there seemed to be no connection between the rate of seeding and the height ,he oats grew, how they stood up or lodged. Also, there was no apparent connection in 1942 be- .ween the rate of seeding and Dushel weight of oats harvested, but in 1943, in a less favorable growing season, the bushel ,vcight increased from 30 pounds at the 1 Mi-bushel rate to 34 pounds for the 4',v-bushel rale. 29c $1.69 $1.95 $1.00 PHIL R.

According to L. C. Grove, Iowa State college extension horticulturist, every home gardener can make a simple germination test in his own home. Twenty-five seeds of each kind of vegetable seed to be tested should be placed on moist paper toweling or blotters sex on a dinner plate. Another dinner plate is inverted over the seed so that the paper will not dry out readily. The plates are placed in the kitchen or other warm place, and the toweling or blotters arc kept moist. The seeds should germinate within several days. Those which germinate siowly and produce weak sprouts may tail to produce plants when planted outside. If the seed germinates at the rate of only SO per cent, seeding in the garden may have to be at twice the usual rate to get a good stand. If the majority of the seeds of any one variety show weak or no germination, it will pay to throw the seed away and get a fresh suppy.' NO SURPLUS IN 20 YEARS The United States has not had a bee£ surplus for 20 years. Little pork has been exported in recent years. The reason is our increase in population, say economists at Iowa State college. 16 25 525 G-Weck Size Wickless burner guaranteed S years! Large--holds 450 six-weeks-old chicks. Absolutely safe!
