Al Parson and company who were driving by there about, one a m noticed the Are and woke the Helm- kes up, but too late to save the house or chicks.

The group, according to Mr. Bonstct- ter, suggested 11 emergency crops on non-contracted acres suitable for summer planting to aid in readjusting 1934 cropping plans. The crops named are sweet sorghum, soybeans, siidan grass raps, millet, sunflowers, buckwheat winter rye, sweet clover, alfalfa, anrl corn date planting can be made to bi announced later. Planting of some o these crops Is made almost prohibitive by the scarcity of seed. Recent findings made by the firm crops department et the college revea that the supply of sorghum (cane) seed seems to be abundant with no apparent reason for increased prices "fodder cane" seed selling around S3 50 to $4 per hundred. Sweet sorghum is excellent for forage production, and is usually sold as fodder cane or redtop sorghum. It Is planted thickly In rows —5 pounds of seed per acre being recommended on non-contracted acres. The latest reports over Iowa arc that soybean seed is becoming increasingly scarce, and in many areas tl'e prlo? of seed is rapidly advancing. It is anticipated that there wi'l not be si.f- Icient seed of the .standard v.irietl<\s- - Wanuch, Illini, Dunfield and B'ack Eyebrow—to meet the demand: va.-lc- ies such as Virginia nnd Wilson, however, are suitable for hay. The farm crops people sav that soybeans may produce a good seed crop if planted by June 15, but they art- \vell orth planting for hay as late as July 0. Soil of average fertilit/ should iroduce 1 to 2'4 tons of cured soybean lay. This crop is a legume that can grown on acid as well as on neutral oils; Inoculation of the seed is, ourse, very important. Two bushel are ordinarily recommended for plant ing if a small-grain drill is used, bu the increasing price for seed may mak It necessary to use but one bushel t the acre. When s-eeded in rows an cultivated, one bushel per acre is gen erally used. Like soybeans, the supply of suda grass is very limited, and promises soo to be exhausted, farm crops specialist*, aay. The crop, normally seeded broad cast at 15 pounds per acre, may b used either for pasture, or hay. It ma be seeded any time until the first o August, but earlier seedings will give larger yields.

Mason City vs. Algona est and most valuable pasture crops, especially for hogs. The supply of Japan Dwarf Essex has shown to be rather limited, but it may be sufficient to meet the demand. When broadcast 6 to 7 pounds to the acre are us?d. Varieties of millet, such as Siberian Hungarian and Common, can be seeded as late as June 15. The supply of seed, however, was shown by farm crops study to be very limited. It is understood that the AAA has authorized the planting of corn for forage but the date when planting is permitted has not been designated. It will give reasonably large yields of forage If planted thickly in rows and spaced as closely as can be cultivated. The Ceding value of sunflowers as silage is somewhat similar to that of corn. This wop should be planted in the early part of June, however. The crops specialists at the college are also rendering Iowa farmers of the possibility of the cummer seeding of sweet clover and alfalfa. Sweet clover seedings made in central Iowa as late as Sept. 1, have been successful though seedings should be gotten in bv August 15; the same is tru-e of al falfa.
