Turkey, Nov. 28. Qualified experts estimate that 30.000.000 bushels of grain are go- Ing to rot in Turkey. It also li estimated that as high as 50 per cent of Turkey's crop is going to waste. Rivers and harbors have hccn observed full of floating apples. It is not because the Turks want to waste this valuable food. On tho cnntrary, Turkish newspapers advocate supporting Hie American rood-KavlitK plan. U Is because the Turks arc hclii- Icss to save 11.

The fruit bus rotted already or is rotting and the grain will rot n.5 soon as the autumn rains begin. With a third of her 102,000.000 acres of land under cultivation, and even with this year's drought, Turkey has produced enough grain to export a substantial amount No one knows exactly how much because of inadequate slntlitic.'i. The estimate of waste for this year is based on last year's figures when 3,650,000 long tons of wheat were produced and enough barley corn, rye nnd oats to bring the figure upward of 5,500,000 tons of Brain. The estimate of waste is based on a figure reached by Turkish and foreign export observers here i<s approximately 15 per cent. Some experts have gone as high ns 20 per cent, Some Exports Expected Nevertheless. Turkey will be able to exjx>rt some grain this year nl- thougn the figure will be disappointingly small, Turkish officials ndmlt. If the 30,000.000 bushels could be saved it could be added to th» export figure. The same officials have been searching desperately for a .solution. None Is In sight.

American officers stationed hero to help administer the aid program said it is theoretically possible to save the grnin by laying steel landing strips near Ihe collection depots and flying it out with cargo plnncs. But the cost of such an operation would be "terrific," they snid. and action would have to i>e taken with "war-time speed" if planes and landing strips were to ue brought in before the rrtjns begin. \ Guatemala Corn Planted In Iowa Proves Success AMES, la. (OP)—After predicting the usefulness of Guatemalan com for many years, Dr. I. E. Melhus project leader of the Guatemalan outpost of the Iowa state College tropical research center, was not surprised when six test plots of coin were harvested here. The crossing of selected Guatemalan corns on well-adapted Iowa Inbrcds in 35 Instances In the tests showed definite drought and heat resistance In some of the hybrids proving, according to the experts that certain desirable characters of Central American corns can be bred Into Town corns. The new corns will not be ready for midwest farms Immediately however, although Dr. Melhus says that after the good strains of Guatemalan corns have been purified by In-breeding and the best combinations tested on a large-scale basis, the new corns will be available for limited field testing. Survive Hot Summer Many of the 35 hybrids vlin Guatemalan breeding had well filled, mature ears develoiied on sturdy stalks with green leaves. The four Iowa and U. S. hybrUU used as checks were short-stalked small-cared and fired because of the unusually hot, dry summer weather of July, August and September. As yet the yield records are not available, but the superior performance of the hybrids with Guatemalan germ plasm Is outstanding. The Guatemalan hybrids wero able to maintain their green leaves through the hot weather because of their strong, well-developed root systems. The Guatemalan hybrids were started In 19^ when selected corns from that country were crossed on If. E. (nbi-cds in Weslaco, Tex., by Dr. J. R. WnlUu, one of Dr. Mclhiis' co-workers. In 1940 the crosses made In Texas were brought up to Shenandoah, la., and crossed again. This spring the corns were planted here. When the project started.Iowa scientists gathered some 1,200 selections of corn from all over Central America In aStas where corn has been grown for at least 2000 years under the most adverse conditions.
