ALfOtt EVENING TELEGRAPH fur m Column Growing Good Alfalfa No Longer Guess Work Greene Stockmen Leave On Tour of Wyoming B.V tlttJMAN W. MAV Comity Ffttttt Adviser Topdressing alfalfa could be your best spent fertilizer dollars. Ex perience is piling tip to show that this practice Is part of the new technology for getting' four to eight ton yields of quality feed. Alfalfa today is a different crop than it was five or 10 years ago. varieties, New new methods, fertilizers, s e ed i n g better soil preparation, faster and more timely harvesting, as well as more know-how on top- dressing to maintain stands, all T. W. May add up to a balanced, effective program for mot profitable production. There is no longer any gues: work about how to grow big crop of alfalfa. We have varieties tlu are well adapted. We know th fertility requirements of growin good alfanfa. Advances have bee made in how to establish stand manage them for long life and i harvesting and storing to preserv quality. Modern haymaking equip nient has revolutionized forag production. We're finally beginning t shake the notion that alfalfa is Utopian crop that somehow wi take care of itself. Maybe it woul if we didn't harvest it two to si times in one season, compare with the single effort made b corn and most other crops. Ther too, we remove the whole alfalf plant right down to the stub, in stead of only the ear or head. A falfa was built for frequent cut tings, but we've just begun t realize that alfalfa can .be fa more profitable if it is fertilize! more like other plants. Helps Hold Stand Topdressing one or more time, each crop season is showing up a.< an important way to maintaii higher yields of quality alfalfa It's also essential to holding i good stand for several years. Minnesota farmers kept fields in alfalfa for six or seven years by keeping up on phosphate and potash requirements. One of the most successful fertilizer treatments at the University's Rosemont Experiment Station has been 300 pounds of 02020 applied the spring before seeding, with annual spring applications of 200 pounds ol the same fertilizer from then Some stands fertilized this granules were used has the damage amounted to very much — apparently atrazine is the only herbicide that carried over and perhaps it killed enough weeds in the corn to more than compensate for the slight damage to the soybeans. There are several things a farmer can do to reduce the possibility of residues from atrazine. Perhaps most important is to use the wettable powder instead of granules. Much more residue has resulted from (he granular form. The major problem may be that t is not rranulars possible to accurately distribute with tho on. way averaged 4.7 tons of forage per acre annually, for eight years. There's no question bul that a) falfa requires extra feeding for extra yields. It acquires most of its own nitrogen, but the other elements must be supplied to maintain high yields. Many growers topdress after first cutting with 200 to 400 pounds of 0-20-20. Phosphate and potash topdressings can be put on new seedings after the nurse crop is harvested. A good fertilizer for topdressing is 100 pounds of triple superphos- phate and 200 pounds of muriate of potash per acre. . Among the Madison County farmers who have been treating their alfalfa fields are Victor Becker, J. W. Autery, Wilmer Hemann, Rudy Kutlin, Elmor May and Alvin Daube. Soybean Damage* There have been a few cases this year of soybeans being damaged by chemical residues in the soil where a herbicide was used to control weeds in corn the prev ious year. Only svhere atrazine M'psent equipment. Herbicides should be applied accurately. Be certain not to overdose, overlap and not slow down during application. Use atrazine where the corn will be followed by corn the next year and perhaps use another herbicide on the next year's corn. Atrazine can be used each year, of course, on continuous corn. It's a good idea to disc corn stalks in the fall to distribute any possible residue more evenly. Atrazine presents the greatest hazard to oats after corn and not much oats is grown here. Soybeans are also sensitive but to a lesser degree. Seeding of wheat and other fall grains is not recommended following with atrazine. Because of its corn treated excellent corn tolerance and good weed control, atrazine is considered the best chemical to control weeds in corn and we certainly don't want to discourage its use because of the few cases of slight damage to soybean fields. Tree Planting Trees are nature's best air conditioners. When planting them this fall, place them where they will do the most good the year 'round, says our friend Charles M. Sac- amano, Extension Horticulture Agent of St. Louis County. Summer temperature in the shade of a tree can be as much as 10 degrees cooler than in nearby sun. Studies have also shown hat roof temperatures of houses n summer can be reduced as nuch as 20 to 40 degrees by a hade tree. This is the reason a ree on the south or southwest ide of a house is so desirable. Tree-shaded walls of houses and uildings are only slightly warmer lan the outside air, but walls iprotected from direct rays of immer sun can heat up to a ery high degree. Trees that drop leaves in the fall permit sun filter through during the winter vhen you need it. At the same me they shield the house from old winds and thus reduce the jel bill. The right shade tree in the right lace is utilitarian as well as a ling of beauty. Ask your nursery- lan what to plant on your prop- i-ty.

B'DWAY WILL BE CLOSED FOR VACATIONS AUG. 5 thru AUG. 10 Several farmers have asked afcoul the leaves of soybean plants turning yellow and brown. This occurs mostly along the edge of the leaves first and usually indicates a shortage of potash in the soil. Fields suspected should be tested for potash and if it is needed, the potash should be applied before next year's crop is planted. Soybeans are sensitive to a lack of potash and on deficient soils applying potash will make a big difference in the yield.

CAR GOES 407 MPH -exceeds world's land speed record using special Shell turbine fuel c 1 * '', ^*#^*r v v** TT\ "' * <\vfer x -^^*' "<.•?> Craig Breedlove and his jet-powered. "Spirit of America" at Bonneville Flats, Utah, Shell supplied, high-energy turbine fuel—also special lubricants, Bonneville Flats, Aug. 5-Craig Breedlove has driven faster than any man in history. Here's his story. Why he insisted on Shell products. Why Shell helped him—and what it means to you. T HE "Spirit of America," a bullet- shaped three-wheeled vehicle, has just become the first car to average more than 395 mph.* The driver: Craig Breedlove. Today, at age 26, he is the fastest man on wheels. Several firms helped him, including the Shell Oil Company. But, as he flashed over the salts of Bonneville, the victory was all his. An amazing vehicle The engine of his racer was originally built for military jet planes. At low speeds, Breedlove steers using the nose wheel in the front of the car. At high speeds, he can also use a rudder under the nose, (see picture above). For high- speed braking, Breedlove uses an 8-foot drag parachute that billows out behind the car and slows him down. The fuel that powered Craig Breed- Jove's car is an innovation, too. Its name: Shell HMP Turbine Fuel. This fuel was created by Shell Research to hasten the development of jet engines for the tri-sonic aircraft you'll be riding in the future. Craig Breedlove contacted Shell on his speed -us an official world record - is subject to confirmation by the FWration In- ternationale Motocycllsie, ilncc thl» event waj held under their International Sporting Code. own initiative before his car was ever built. Here's why —in his own words: "I've been building racers ever since I •was 14. And I've -used Shell products in every car I've ever raced. They've served me ivell. I insisted on Shell -products he- cause I knew 1 could depend on thew." Two tough problems Here's how Shell helped Breedlove with two of his toughest problems. 1. The hig -problem was "drag"—at air friction. As Breedlove approached 400 mph, air whipped over his car at around five times the speed of a hurricane. Breedlove needed lots of power to overcome this friction. Shell's answer: Shell HMF Turbine Fuel. Jt packs more potential energy for its weight than any aircraft turbine fuel now available. 2. Heat from Breefiove's disc brakes could easily melt vital -wheel-bearing grease. Even at relatively "low" speeds— under 150 miles per hour—the brake discs can become red-hot. Result: wheel bear« ings could be-hot enough to make cpn- ventipnal greases melt and dribble out, Shell's answer: one of Shell's Micro- gel* greases. These remarkable new greases have no melting point at all- They were made possible by Shell's discovery of an entirely new kind of thickening agent—a non-soap thickener. Six different Shell products were used to help Breedlove exceed the land speed record. NOTE: Shell has worked with many record holders. Enzo Ferrari, ivorld famous "father of modern motor racing," is a notable example. Shell gasoline and oil go into all racing Ferraris, "13 world championships have been the remit of this happy association," says Ferrari, Shell is always ready and eager to make new ideas work. That's really why Shell can offer you such good products for your car today.
