Walker, re- f nt .' he belle ves that musical search professor of soils at Iowa State College, Iowa soils are becoming more acid, lower in organic matter and more depleted, and it soon will not be possible on many soils to continue raising legumes without inoculation. Red clover is seldom inoculated in Iowa, but in many instances inoculation has increased the stand and raised the yield and quality of the crop. Soybean nodule bacteria are not found na/turally in Iowa soils because the plant is not native to this country, and a great percentage of Iowa soils are too acid for the alfalfa root nodule bacteria to survive more than 1 year. Inoculation of legume seed may be desirable on some soils each time the crop is newly planted, Walker says, as the necessary bacteria for plant growth do not live over long after the plant has decayed. Inoculation may be accomplished by soil transfer or by the use of commercial culture. "Never take the chance that inoculation may not be necessary," Walker suggests, <'for inoculation is always good crop insurance."

Married women she thinks lean too much upon men and fail to continue mental growth. "We don't ask for a chance to think," says Mrs. Cmith. The fact that woman's chief occupations are with the home and care of children doesn't mean that she should cease to grow There are several satisfactory methods of testing corn. Main precautions to be observed in each are proper temperature, moisture and air conditions. All testing materials must be scalded and cleaned to kill the molds before they are used again. The rag-doll, or cloth method, is one of the reliable, cheap and fairly compact and tied loosly in the center. Rolls are soaked in lukewarm water for an hdttr and then drained, A pail lined with moist burlap, which has been previously scalded to kill molds, makes an excellent place for the dolls. The dols are stood on end in the pail and the upper parts of the burlap are folded loosely over the top.

After every harmful element is cleaned out, the patented Conoco Germ Processing element is scientifically put IN. 4 That's what brings you this alloyedo\\, with its strange attachment for pistons, cylinders, and all other engine parts—including every known type of bearing. All these parts really become oil-plated! This oil-plating is extra. It's a plus—added to the tougher, more slippy, heat-beating Germ Processed oil film. You've got this high-durability oil film, sliding on thoroughly oil-plated surfaces, and so you're that much farther from wear and noise. You're facing hotter days and harder runs. Out with dirty winter oil! Only the Conoco man can change you—quickly—to Germ Processed, the alloyed oil Continental Oil Company.
