LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Young Shelby Yield Is Soybean Plot Topper MONMOUTH On the Frank and Donald Kirkpatrick farm, Warren County, where the soybean variety plot was harvested Sept. 27, Shelby was the top- yielding variety. The soybeans were planted on May the 20 this year with each variety two rows, 544 feet long. Other varieties in the plot yielded as follows: Lindarin 63 yielded 42.2 bushels, Harosoy 42.0, Lindarin 40.8, Adams 39.8, Harosoy 63 39.2, Hawkeye 36.2, and Hawkeye 63 34.6. This was the ninth year for the Kirkpatricks to have the soybean variety plot on their farm. The information is valuable to the University of Illinois Agronomy Department and serves as a guide for the farmers in Warren County. As a result of this plot, the Kirkpatricks have switched from the low yielding Hawkeye's to the high yielding Shelby's over the years. Stanley Sims, Warren County farm adviser asked Don what he thought of the Shelby bean, since it was later than the other varieties and he said that he can afford to wait a little while for the Shelby beans when they yield five to nine bushels better than the low-yielding Hawk- eyes. Plant Less Hawkeyes Farmers are now planting 31 per cent Hawkeyes in Western Illinois. The new varieties Shelby and Lindarin are coming in for 80 per'cent each of the planting with Harosoy 22 per cent, and Clark at 10 per cent.

FARNHAM Ph. 343-3I1I - On Route 94 Feeders Eye Fat Cattle Price Range By LEO SHARP (Fulton County Farm Adviser) Cattle feeders are concerned about the future prices of fat cattle because of the increased number of feeders available. In Western Illinois, the 126,400 head on farms at the beginning of the year was up 40 per cent from the 8-year average of 195058. At the beginning of this year, there were 74.7 million head on ranches and farms, and at the same time in 1958 there were only 59.2 million head. Because of the increased number, an effort is being made to provide a source of high quality, graded calves and yearlings from the beef breeds to Illinois feeders and others. The Western Illinois Livestock Association plans to provide a market for the cattle produced in this area by sponsoring two cooperative sales. This will also help upgrade the overall quality of the cattle in the territory. Sales Posted Feeder calf sales are scheduled for Oct. 21 at Pittsfield and Nov. 18 at Colchester. Both sales will begin at 1 p.m., with yearlings and calves offered after being graded by extension livestock specialists from the University of Illinois. The executive committee made final plans Friday for the event. Heading the cooperative sales effort are John Jameson of Canton Route 1, C. A. Gambles of Pittsfield and James Retzer of Hardin. Bryce Kirtley from the University of Illinois will be extension marketing specialist. Farmers may still consign cattle to Pittsfield by contacting the local farm adviser, Gamble or 0- J. Heinke, Pike County farm adviser. Lagoons May Be Cheaper With limited labor and equipment, it may be cheaper to dispose of manure in a lagoon than by spreading it in a field. (Manure is still valuable as a fertility and humus source for high crop yields, however.) Size and location of the lagoon are important. It should be a minimum of 300 feet from the farmhome, and placed so summer breezes will blow the odors away from the home. Size depends on the operation. Using wash water to flush solids and with limited feeding into them, the following size requirements offer an easy guide (figured per animal): hog, 40-50 square feet; sheep, 50-65 square feet; horse, 300-350 square feet; cow, 350-400 square feet; chicken, 1-2 square feet, and milking and milkroom wastes per cow, 50-60 square feet. Additional information can be obtained from William Calas, Fulton County health engineer in Canton. Charles S.

Oalesbiwa Hiccups Plague Ends for Woman After 3 Months ATLANTA (AP) - Just as mysteriously as it started, a three-month plague of hiccups ended for Mrs. Lucy McDonald. When the 38-year-old mother of three arrived home over the weekend from a month's stay in a hospital, the spasms stopped without any apparent reason. She sped back to the hospital, but doctors couldn't tell her what halted the hiccups or what started them. Mrs. McDonald, a soda fountain waitress, had tried almost everything—surgery, countless home remedies and prayer. A chess set exhibited in East Germany in 1960 portrayed the king as a worker reading an economic plan and the queen as a woman scientist. Pawns carry hammers or sickles.

WASHINGTON (UPI) - Senate hearings on President Kennedy's tax cut program opened today on a stormy note with one Democratic senator charging pressure tactics had been employed in an effort to force him to support the bill. An aroused Sen. Albert Gore, D-Tenn., complained that a seven-page telegram sent by William Keel, director of research for the Democratic National Committee, to Tennessee communities amounted to "political intimidation." The telegrams urged local Democratic leaders in Tennes see to support the tax program and to advise their senator- Gore—to do likewise. "So far as I kaow, this is the beginning of a purge," Gore said as the Senate Finance Committee opened hearings on the tax bill. Gore is opposing the measure. Agrees With Gore Sen. Herman E. Talmadge, D-Ga., chimed in that he had seen the telegram and agreed with Gore that it was designed to "bring political pressure and coercion" on the veteran Tennessee senator. Sen. Russell B. Long, D-La., No. 2 Democrat on the tax- writing committee, sought to smooth ruffled feathers. Long said he was sure the wire was not intended to pressure anybody. He acknowledged it was an "undiplomatic act by one individual" but said it should not be blamed on the Democratic National Committee as a whole. Gore suggested that Keel be asked to testify and, if necessary, subpoened to appear before the committee to explain the telegram and to say whether the views were endorsed by National Chairman John Bailey. Chairman Harry F. Byrd, D- Va., said he felt Gore's suggestion that Keel appear was "reasonable" and added that the matter would be "thoroughly looked into." Charges Pressure Tactics Contributing to a lively start of the hearing, Byrd remarked in his opening statement that in ferences that the committee is delaying action on the bill "have characteristics of pressure propaganda." The Gore complaint and the other statements of members delayed testimony by Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillon, who launched the administration's Senate drive for the House- passed $11 billion tax cut with a 48-page opening statement. In his lengthy presentation, the only revision recommended by Dillon from the House bill was a reduction in tax relief which persons who profit from the sale of stocks and property would get.
