Shows Value of Isofype Tracer Experiment Carried on in Wright County Clarion—The experimental use of radioactive isotope tracers in the study of phosphorus fertilizer shows that they have great possibilities for helping the research man make his fertilizer recommendations, Doctor W. H. Pierce, head or the agronomy department of Iowa State college, said this week. Pierce said that by using radioactive phosphorus, research men can trace the fertilizer through the plant. It can be determined whether the plant is getting its plant food from fertilizer applied or from reserves already in the soil. Seven experiments with radio active phosphate fertilizer were conducted in Iowa this past year. Five of those experiments were m Wright county. Three were on the Hubert Hiemstra farm in Norway township operated by Walter Passmore and 2 on the Woodley Brothers' farm in Lincoln township. The work in this state is in co-operation with the bureau of plant industry, soils and agricultural engineering of the USDA. Three experiments were with corn where the objective was to find out the best placement of phosphate fertilizer. Phosphate was placed at different depths and on one and both sides of the row. Another was with corn where the objective was to test the effect of phosphate on different hybrids. Three experiments were with oats and alfalfa seedings where a comparison was made of the value of different phosphate fertilizers including some of the newer ones produced by the Tennessee Valley Authority. While Pierce pointed out that some calculations and analyses have not been completed he reported some general results obtained from the studies. In general, he said the efficiency of Phosphate fertilizers depend on the kind of soil. On a near neutral soil that is not acid, plants got a higher percentage of phosphorus from superphosphate than from the newer phosphate fertilizers However, on 2 other soils that were slightly acid the newer fertilizers were equally efficient.

The lighted with Memories of School Days Prompt Gift Clarksville—-When Aaron Hardman of Greene drove by Shady Dellv school just north of Clarksville and saw the children at play it brought back pleasant memories of his boyhood. When he attended the school 50 years ago he helped plant an elm tree on the grounds and he noted it has grown into a large tree with branches large enough to shade the pupils in the summer. Deciding that he would like to show his love of these happy memories in a more substantial way at Christmas time, he gave 550 to the school to be used as the teacher, Blanche Bolin, and the school board see fit. He deposited the $50 in the Iowa btate bank, a dollar for each year the tree has stood ,and instructed the bank to notify the teacher the money was there. flares showing the location.

Flock Owners Up Production Report Results From Improved Practices Ames—Iowa flock owners are adopting improved management practices recommended by Iowa State college specialists to boost egg production. W, R. Whitfield, extension poul- tryman at the college, reports that a spot check in several counties indicates that flock owners have made a definite swing during the past 10 years from allowing their laying flocks to run out of doors in winter to complete confinement. Ten years ago, Whitfield checked 118 flocks in Story, Hamilton. Wright and Hancock counties and found 94 braving the elements of 10 below zero weather. Two weeks ago, he made a similar spot check in Story, Hardin, Butler, Franklin, Bremer and Fayette counties and found only 16 out of 240 flocks running outside. He says this is generally true throughout the state. This change in practices has contributed to the Increased egg production per hen in the state over the same 10-year period, according to Whitfield. Egg production per hen in November this year was 9.72 eggs compared to 4.8 eggs per hen for the same month 10 years ago. He stresses that no one practice alone makes success. Other factors in. addition to confinement had their part. But, he is convinced that confining the flock in well insulated houses is one of the major factors affecting egg production during cold weather. Home For Holidays Wesley—Mary Jane Loebey of St. Mary's, Milwaukee, Cletus Marvin and Philip Studer, and Harry Studer and Gary Wingert of St. Lawrence at Mt. Carmel, Wis., Gary Marco of Omaha, Lowell Erdman and Jack Bonn of Ames, Burrell Lease of Iowa City and Lois Bluch of Cedar Falls are home for the holidays. 11 ih We at Dillons extend Season's Greetings to you and yours.
