The last two seasons have been wetter. Louis Ferstl (left) and his employee, Alvin Kramer, were among the first area men to begin planting. Their first 14-hour planting day began last Monday at 6 a.m., with hopes that a late frost wouldn't wipe out their early-bird efforts. Their start.was about 10 days ahead of the average starting date and a week ahead of most area farmers who started today. The seedcorn is deposited two inches (sometimes less than two inches) into the soil. Deeper seeding might cause unwanted underground leafing. Corn obtains its best yield if it is planted early enough so that silk- ing and tasseling (pollinating) takes place before July 15-18. So large acreages like Ferstl's must be planted as soon as possible.

The case of Marlin Lium, an employee of Weidenhoff Corp., who had sued the Dreis & Krump Co. of Chicago, ill. for the amount was heard in court for over a week before the case was given to the jury for deliberation at 3-.20 p.m. last Wednesday after final arguments.
