MAY Madison County Farm Adviser EDWARDSVILLE - More dairymen are making com silage in emporary horizontal silos this all than in previous years because of summer drought conditions in many areas, causing shortages of hay and pasture. Airtight storage, important in any silage structure, is doubtly mportant in horizontal silos with arge areas exposed to air. A wheel tractor equipped with a scraper blade does a good Job of packing and leveling the silage. The material should be packed well along the edges and rounded over the top for good drainage. A plastic cover will help exclude air and hold surface spoilage to a mininum. The edges of he plastic should make a tight seal so that water will drain over the edge of the silo. It's also im- Dortant to guard against holes in :he plastic once it has been put n place. A small hole will reduce the value of the cover considerably. Concrete floors work best in horizontal silos. However, gravel, corn cobs or other suitable gerous when the filling operation has stopped for several hours or overnight. Carbon dioxide tends to accumulate chopped silage just and above the can cause death from suffocation. Fryman gives these guides for irotection against silo gases: (1) lun the blower for 10 to 15 minutes before entering a partly filled silo, and keep it running while •ou are in the silo. (2) Let sil- ige build up before replacing silo doors. (3) Watch for yellowish- brown fumes. (4) ,Keep children and animals away from the silo during 'and after filling. (5) Don't enter the silo for at least seven o ten days after it is filled. Weed Problem Soybean fields of the earlier- maturing varieties, chiefly Haro- soy, are being combined. Yields reported so far range from 14 to 30 bushels per acre. Weeds are a problem in many fields. Harvesting of later varieties ike Clark and Kent will be at the peak around the end of the month The new Clark strain of Clark materials can be emergency.

BILL ROBERTS Plans Series of Conferences on Child Problems SPRINGFIELD, 111.

Cunningham To Head Dads Club Again SOUTH ROXANA — Lawrence Cunningham was re-elected president of the Dads Club at the annual meeting Monday evening at the clubhouse in the park.

Corn usually makes the best silage when the kernels are well dented and the lower leaves have started to turn. Corn that will be put in a horizontal silo should not be allowed to get so dry that it won't pack tightly. It's possible to self-feed cattle from a horizontal silo that has an adequate floor. However, a good feeder gate is essential to keep losses to a minimum. Suggestions for making satisfactory feeding gates are available at the farm adviser's office. Greater Profits Today's new soft wheat varieties may be the answer to greater profits from your wheat crop particularly here in the good soft wheat producing area. In recent years market discounts for soft wheat have encouraged farmers to grow more hard wheat. But research at the University of Illinois Brownstown Research Center shows that higher yields of soft wheat more than offset these discount. For several years, soft wheat varieties ai Brownstown have been outyield ing hard varieties by about 15 bushels per acre. And you'd need far higher premiums than are now paid to make hard whea more profitable than soft with yield differences like these. The soft varieties have also out-yield ed the hard wheats consistently in the Madison county test plots In addition to producing highe yields, some of the newer soft wheat varieties have better resistance to yield - cutting soil- borne mosaic than most of the hard wheat varieties. Monon and Vermillion soft wheats have a short, stiff straw that makes the plant stand well even under- high fertility. Monon and Knox, the earliest-maturing soft wheat, mature in time to boat the heat. If everyone in your area grows one kind of wheat, it will usually pay you to do the same. But if your neighbors grow both hard and soft wheat, choose the one that will give you the greatest profit. Recommended soft wheats are Monon, Vermillion, Knox 62 and Reed. Only a limited supply of Reed seed is available. Ottawa Still Tops Of the recommended hard 63, an improved with resistance Milner, Carrollton. Mrs. Marion Everetts and daughter, Linda of Jerseyville, visited Sunday at the E. I. Ozbun home. wheats, Ottawa still tops the list, followed by Pawnee, Ponca and Triumph. Omaha and Tascoaa were generally disappointing this year in variety trials. Dry weather this summer may Ijave increased the danger from poisonous gases in upright silos during and after filling. University of Illinois dairy scientist Leo Fryman says the most dangerous silo gas is nitrogen dioxide, a yellowish-brown, tieavier-than-air gas that tends to collect just above chopped silage. Nitrogen dioxide is extremely harmful to persons breathing it and is responsible for a number of deaths each year. The gas is most likely to form in a silo containing corn raised during drouth conditions. Nitrogen dioxide gas can cause silo fillers' disease, a combination of severe chest pains and coughing and a burning sensation in the throat and chest. Immediate medical treatment Is essential when the gas is inhaled. Carbon dioxide is another dangerous gas that may form from chopped forage fermenting inside a silo. This gas is colorless and odorless. It is especially dan- :o phytophthora root rot, looks ;ood. Fortunately there has been very little of the rot disease this year, so there has been no chance :o check the disease resistance of Clark 63. Harry Deatherage of Chouteau township has a field of Clark 63 on Route 111 a mile south of Routes 66 and By-pass 40. He says the present field with its perfect stand of healthy, vigorously growing plants is much different from the same field three years ago when it was badly infected with phytophthora rot. There is no way of predicting the advance when rot diseases will be prevalent and farmers will plant disease resistant varieties as insurance against disease losses. In addition to Clark 63, Harosoy 63 and Hawkeye 63 have been developed for disease resistance for growers wanting earlier- maturing varieties. Farmers wanting seed of these varieties to plant in 1964 should arrange for their supplies early. Moose Degree Staff Inducts St. Libory Class WOOD RIVER — The degree staff of the Moose Lodge inducted a class of 10 candidates in the St. Libory, Mo.
