Grassland Farming to Achieve Importance NEW HOLLANDTpcnn., Jan. 13 —America's farmland will grow greener In the second half of the twentieth century. Outstanding In farming's past 50 years, and bound to play vital parts In the years to come, are the new Importance of grass and the mechanization of the farm. This IB the opinion of George C. Delp, president of New Holland Machine Co., farm machinery subsidiary of The Sperry Corp. "Agriculture in America at the middle of the century Is undergoing Its greatest change In history. Machines have played a basic part in this transition and will continue to do so," Delp said, "But the news in 1950 it the trend toward a new concept of farming—a new system known as grassland farming, In which grass grown for hay and silage gains high Importance. You can't call grass a 'wonder crop' because we've always had It on farms. But when a farmer talks today of 'grass* he doesn't mean some pasture on poor land, or a small hay patch. He's speaking about the acres of rich grasses, grown on good soil and providing him First Party on 72nd Birthday Itfrs. Harry LcssnCr of 730 East Fourth street was surprlsfid Wednesday with a potluck luncheon by neighbors and friends. After the group of about 20 women had arrived to help Mrs. Lewner celebrate her birthday, she told them It was the first birthday party she had ever had. Mrs. Lcssner, who Is 72 years old, has suffered four fractures In about a ynnr. She has had two leg fractures, a back Injury and a fractured hip. However, at the pnrty she was walking about her home. The women played games following lunch and presented Mrs. Lessner with gifts. with nutritious and Inexpensive feed for livestock. Farmers using jrass as ,'. real crop find that it helps prevent erosion, builds up the soil,' improves the Ifind for crops that follows and provides greater profit through more economical feed. Names like 'Kentucky 31 fescue 1 and 'Ladlno clover' are becoming bywords among the grassland farmers. "Grass, developed nnd bred Into the status of a real crop, will be a dominating factor In agriculture's coming years." SALE!
