The ehhl water culfiire farms are producing, for eiiam-lc, to- nialecs at the rate of from 10 to 14 pounds a square fcot. The I vines grow to a liorjht of 13 to 14 feel, and gladioias have been grown as tall as 6 feet. Chemicals Kerlitcr Soil What handicaps research Is tlie lack cf personnel. Briefly, university officials exniain. ihe farms new under -cultivation consist of high water tanks, in which the plants have access to the sunlight. Certain chemicals are placed in Ihe water that .the plants wr-"ld ordinarily draw from ihe , r.cil. The work is .in charge of Dr. \V. I-'. Gcriekc end Dr. A. R. Davis. They have only a small force and only one or two of the prcfesscrs know the formula for tlie phemlcils which are used Hut the university makes no secret of Ihe fact that the water culture farirs are proving a success and that they may have (he greatest l.'>lluei:>:c on -the future of American farming and gardening.

There is no digging for carrols, polaloes, beet-s and other tubers and the water culture farmer at al! limes can keep an eye on how liis crop is growing and possibly make calculaticns of how [20 years, Elizabeth Mnrburj- and I made it our home nnd I Irlaj out nil my Ilirorlev on Hie o'.d lions'.
