hiDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE ELEVEN Ann Landers He May Be Better Off Without I DEAR ANN: Soon our brilliant, handsome son Will be leaving for a mediocre state university which Ls situated in a hick town. Why? Because his "Know-It-All" father {wouldn't listen to |me, or to the boy's I high school ad- Ivisers. My husband, a | prominent and ^successful busi- Inessman, was de- stermined lhat our | boy would go to ^Harvard, Yale, Ann Landers. Princeton, Dartmouth or Rutgers. Against everyone's advice, he took it upon himself to write letters to the presidents of these schools offering gifts, with promises of more. Me pressured, 1 his influential friends and business associates, who were graduates of these schools, to write letters in behalf of our son. I feel certain that with the boy's fine scholastic record, his extracurricular activities and his high rating in the college boards he would surely have made one of these schools if his father had not put the heat on. Please print this letter as a warning to other fathers to lay off. —HEARTSICK MOM DEAR MOM: Your husband acted unwisely, to be sure. But it would be incorrect to say his actions ruined the boy's chances. The kind of pressure he exerted neither helps nor hinders. Usually, it is ignored. Heaven only knows why somej students are accepted and others; are not. Saddest of all is thatj the kids are often made to feeli like failures if they aren't ac-j cepted by the schools their par-j ents prefer. I Meanwhile, take comfort in thej fact that your son may well be! happier, and do better, at the state university, hick town and all) than he would have done, in all that Ivy. * * * * . DEAR ANN: This is one forj the books. I have heard of' married men telling girls they; are single but have you ever heard of a single man telling a girl he is married? I met this fellow when I was; waiting tables in a respectable 1 cafe. He was a customer. He told me on our first date that he was married, that he and his wife did not get along but he was staying with her because of the children. Everytime we went out and I mentioned his wife he changed the subject. I got suspicious and questioned a woman who worked in the same company. I found out that he is not married and never has been.

MAV Madison County Farm Adviser A common topic of conservation among farmers these days is how much wheat they plan to plant this fail, now that there are no planting or marketing restrictions in effect for the 19(54 crop, since the proposed program was defeated in the referendum last May. There is a possibility that there may be some new national legislation affecting the situation by seeding time, but most people think this will nol happen. The county ASC committee reminds farmers tlmf to be eligible for price support at about $1.25 per bushel the 1964 acreage must not exceed the allotment. These allotment dere mailed to farmers last April. Over- planting the allotment will make I'. W. May producers ineligible for price support and will reduce acreage allotments 6 to 7 per cent for future years, according to present information. It appears now that Madison county farmers will increase their wheat acreage very little, if any. The situation varies on different farms, of course. Some fanners want to fill out fields rather than leave a few acres idle to meet, allotment requirements, others need more acreage to balance their crop relation or to use the wheat for a nurse crop to prevent erosion. Since farmers will increase acreage a little to meet these situations, while others will reduce tor similar reasons. At a recent meeting attended by farmers from all parts of the county, an informal poll indicated a slight reduction in the total acreage they intend to plant. This is in line with polls conducted in the major wheat states, which show little probabil ity of much increase. Many farmers are cooperating in the feed- grain program and must maintain a certain amount of conserving acreage and acres for increasing wheat are just not available. An other factor is the favorable outlook for soybeans. Weather an Influence Weather in late September and October could have some influence on the amount of wheat seeded, but seldom is planting much affected by too much rain, although sometimes delayed a few days. Most wheat is usually seeded during the first half of October. As we have already reported, thu recommended 'dates for Madison County for seeding varieties susceptible to Hessian fly are October 7 to 9, late enough lo escape fly infestation and early enough to make a good growth before winter. Several of the new varieties are resistant to fly. Farmers who need to buy seed wheat should be arranging for their supply. It appears that there is plenty of good quality seed of the recommended varieties. The seed should be treated to control diseases. Five dollars spent treating small grain seed can net you $50 through improved stands, better quality grain and higher yields next year. Fungicide treatment controls smuts that affect seedlings and helps seedlings resist soil-borne seed decaying organisms and damping off. Soil-borne organisms often strike when wet weather follows planting. Seed treatment will control loose and covered smuts of oats, covered and black smuts of barley, and stinking smut — bunt or covered — and flag smut of wheat. It does not control loose smut of wheat and barley because of the fungus that lies deep within the seed. Fungicide seed treatments give you an added bonus in controlling seed-borne infections of all small grains caused by the scab fungus, soil-borne root rot.s; stripe, net blotch of barley; and bacteria! blights of oats, barley and wheat. All seed treatments are poisonous and toxic. You cannot market treated .seed or feed it to livestock. If you arc not able or willing to follow all safety precautions, have your seed treated-before the rush starts — by a commercial seed processor. He can also clean your seed, removing weed seeds, light shriveled kernels, smut particles and balls, chaff and other undesirable im purities. has pastor of the Kane Baptist Church for the past two years, resigned Sunday night.

The grain portion of the ration is fed us the cows are milked, and they have plenty of other time to eat hay, silage and pasture. One dairyman asked the other if there would be any advantage to adding soybean meai or other high-protein supplement to corn silage at ensiling time. This would probably not be economical or practical because of the ensiling losses that are bound to occur, reducing the returns from the money spent for the high-pro tein feed. If the dairyman is equipped to add either a high-protein supple-, ment or a complete grain ration to corn silage as it is fed, it could be a practical system. Some dairy| men who have had trouble getting tho cows to eat enough grain while they are in the milking parlor have fed some grain on top of the silage. They have tried to give the lower producing cows the kind and amount of grain necessary to balance the roughage being fed. The high producing cows are then given extra grain as they go through the milking parlor. The low producers get little or no grain while in the parlor. Leo R. Fryman, extension dairyman. University of Illinois, who has been in the county on dairy work many times, says he recom mends this system. He says the dairyman should be careful to formulate a grain ration to be added to- the corn silage and another one to be fed in the milking parlor which will give cows at all levels of production the necessary feed nutrients.

The building of farm ponds in the county continues lo increase, us more farmers recognize their value for water supply, recreation, soil conservation and other purposes. During the past month, five ponds have been completed in a two-mile area in Hamel township. Not all communities have built so many, but it is a genera] practice over the county. Keith Storey of New Zealand, International Farm Youth Exchange Student who has been spending the past three weeks with the Elmer H. Klenke family of New Douglas, gave an interesting talk on New Zealand and dairying at a meeting of the county 4-H Club Federation lust week. Many farmers have made changes in their business in the past 10 years to meet changing cosl-price relationships. These changes boost: output and lower production cost per unit. They also increase competition in the production of many farm products. Farmers contemplating changes today should figure the effect of the change on their net income before making their decisions.
