LsDAY. MAY 7. 1936 SUGGESTIONS MADE HELP GET GOOD SEED CORN STAND [[suggestions which Tay bty farmers may follow fre a good stand of corn Hng have been received [ity Agent Robt. M. Dav recommendations are Dr. R. H. Porter, Iowa College extension plan jgist, and E. S. Dyas props specialist, on the seed corn test and reseed corn surveys, the ons<are: jictically all seed corn foe treated this year. | not plant corn deep this not plant unusually nless the seed is of the bp and of high quality, ftermine the germinating |f the seed corn and ad- planting rate accord- disease free seed is [ benefited from treat- nless planted early, but [small portion of Iowa is nearly disease free |r. The 1935 seed is of uality and carries more [drgatnisms than usual. I when treated will with- stand more adverse conditions than if not treated. Field tests for 9 years with planter box seed show an average gain 6f 4 bushels per acre. The cost is only about 2 cents per acre for field corn. Old corn will not usually withstand adverse conditions as new corn will, since much of the 1935 crop seed shows weakened vitality the planting method should receive careful attention this year. The present conditions for soil moisture suggests that. • shallow planting (not over 2 to 3 inches) is highly desirable. It is believed that the use of much old seed corn and of much 1935 crop seed low in vi- ;ality is sufficient reason for discouraging planting too early his year. When the soil is warm and n good condition, corn should >e planted. On the other hand, t is not suggested that plant- ng be delayed beyond normal f weather conditions are fav- .ble. This recommendation is ontrary to what is usually con- idered good practice and is made only because of the con- ition of much of the seed orn. Poor stands of corn are more THE LENOX TIME TABLE. LENOX. IOWA often responsible for low yields than any other factor, and poor stands usually are the result of planting low germinating seed It is advisable to plant nothing but high germinatihg seed if this is possible. \ In some cases, however, a grower can get seed corn of a proven, high producing strain or variety the seed of which does not germinate as high as is most desirable. Such seed can often be used, to advantage if care is used to determine the exact germination and increase ;he rate of planting in propor- ;ion to the percentage of kernels that do not give a strong germination. If 100 per cent germinating seed would be planted 3 kernels per hill, plant 75 per cent germinating seed 4 kernels per hill Farmers should de discouraged from planting seed thicker than usual unless they know very definitely the percentage of kernels that show a strong germination and increase accordingly. It is not safe to guess. The thick planting of low germinating seed is recommended only when the seed is of a proven, high yielding strain, and when better seed is not available. HOMESTEADS SHOULD GET TAX RELIEF—GRIMES "One of the big issues in the present political campaign is Homestead Tax Relief, and I am for it," stated J. M. Grimes, Republican candidates for governor, Wednesday at Red Oak. "As a result of the present expensive distribution of the sales and income tax, probably five million dollars will be donated this year by the people of Iowa as a refund or rebate on the taxes of railroads, utilities, insurance companies, and nonresident property owners, be_ cause under the law the credit is now applied to corporate and non_resident owned property, the same as though they contributed ratably with the residents of the state. "The hi justice is obvious with over a million acres of Iowa land owned by non-residents who pay no sales tax, vast numbers o non-residents who own cit property but who pay no sale •ax here, and insurance com mnies who pay no income tax Yet all three groups receive 're ief.' " Turning vigorously to his own stand, Mr. Grimes continued, >elieve that sales and income ax benefits should be restricted Eat up distance, but not your bearings \t alloyed oil... and you'll get the difference Ask your wife. The least little heat makes smoke out of some of the oily substances she puts in her frying pan. They vanish double quick, while others stay put. That's the sort of difference your hilliest hot-weather drive will show you in Germ Processed, the alloyed oil. Patented. It not only stays up around "Full," but stays right up in every working surface of your engine. Yes, the pistons, cylinders, valve gear, and any types of bearings ever used, can really take in this alloyed oil. You might say they become lastingly, smoothly "oil-glazed." And you can see that this added sleek oil-surfacing, together with the high-durability Germ Processed oil-film, easily doubles your guard against summer grief.

These benefits should not be scatter, ed to property owners without reference to their residence o as to whether or not they hav contributed to the fund. Each County Treasurer should applj funds coming into his hands t< replace taxes upon homestead, within his county up to the as sessed valuation of $2500 each. "The failure of the present plan of distribtuion, has clearly demonstrated itself by the staggering waste of over three million dollars in the fall of 1934 The owners of a $2500 home received a refund check for $2.75 after having contributed many Jmes that amount in sales tax. Many of the checks to owners of >ersonal property were so small -hat the cost of issuance ex- -eeded the amount of the check. About 50 percent of all checks were for less than one dollar. Out of the same, distribution, utilities, insurance companies, railways and non-resident property owners received in many cases checks from single coun ties from $1000 to over $4000 each. For example, the Keokuk Dam Company of St. Louis received a check for $4800. In some counties as high as 40 per_ cent of the total refund left the county and state. "I am seeking relief for the average Iowa citizen and taxpayer. This is one of the things [ stand for and pledge my efforts to accomplish it if nominated and elected," Grimes concluded. -R CLUB MEMBERS CAN ENTER THE MARKET LAMB CLUB The market lamb offers farm boys a fine opportunity to study heep raising at a closer angle. In the lamb club work, the members study selection of de- irable feeding lambs, selection f purebred lambs and breed haracteristics, use of approved ractices in lamb feeding and management, market types of ambs and their values, and ost of production of lambs.

Stouder, Iowa State College extension veterinarian, will demonstrate how to safely drench sheep to control stomach worms before 4-H sheep clubs in several counties this summer.
