BE SAFE—TEST GARDEN SEED FOR GERMINATION Be sure you aren't planting garden seeds that are too old and have lost their viability, warns E. S. Haber of the Vegetable Crops Department at Iowa State College. Garden seeds vary widely in the number of years that they can be HefS'ove'r and planted with success, he says. Parsnip and parsley seeds will not germinate ,after one year, and peas, sweet corn, carrots and onions will now grow from seed that is more than 2 years old, • Haber states. Vegetable seeds that lose their viability after 3 years include beans, tomatoes and asparagus. The 4-year limit includes such common ones as beets, cab bages, radishes, turnips, squash and pumpkins. Lettuce and cu cumber seeds germinate well up to 5 years of age. A good method of testing th viability of garden seeds is to take 100 seeds from a sample and place them between the folds of moistened blotting paper. Place the paper in a dish and cover to prevent excessive drying. Keep the paper moist by sprinkling water on it. As the seeds sprout, count them and keep a record of how many germinate out of the 100. Adverse weather conditions during the time the seeds are in the field later will reduce germination even though the seeds made a high showing in the test, Haber points out.

The supervisors made [every attempt to get/roads open, especially in partis of the county where there iitoas sickness or where trains were not running. In some places, notably around Athelstan, there was no train service for nearly two weeks and plows had to be kept in that corner of the county so people could get food and coal.
