For more than a month the seed should have been germinating in the warm soil. Millions of acres lay unplanted because Ihe ground was too wet for preparation of the seed bed and too cold for germination of the seed. Only a generation ago there could have been but one outcome—crop shortage and food scarcity. Nature allows scant time for planting'when the warm sun waits till late May or June before drying the soggy soil. Horses are top slow and tire too quickly to get the job done then. But the farmers remember May of 1943-only two years ago-when their fast, untiring tractors averted crop failure. Then, too, rain's flooded the fields and the month was all but spent before they could go in on the land and plant. In 1943, most farmers drove their tvactors from dark to dark, and longer. Many planted around the clock, working in two or three shifts. They made one of the greatest crops in history. In today's war-torn world-with hunger and disease already stalking many peoples-even one major crop failure could bring famine. This is why the sound of'tractors and planting machinery was heard, day and night, from the Plains states to the Eastern seaboard-why headlights stabbed the darkness : over the fields. America's farmers are doing it again, in spite of an unprecedented combination of adverse circumstances-bad weather, shortages of machines and shortages of manpowpr. For the second time in three years, they are relying upon their tractor-powered machines to help rescue large areas of the world from catastrophe. More of these tractors are products of International Harvester than of any other company. INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER COMPANV 180 N. Michigan Aye.
