Recognized unproved varieties of corn were planted with local varieties at the Chas. Eggerth farm near Lakota and at the Geo. Godfrey farm east of Algona during the past season. E. S. Dyas Of the extension service assisted In harvesting these plots last month. Dick Rising helped by running moisture tests on each sample. Varieties used include samples of McArthur's Golden King furnished by Mr. McArthur of Mason City; Carlisle's Kossuth Reliance furnished by A. C. Carlisle of Whittemore and hybrids used included one furnished by Henry Field of Shenandoah and four from Iowa State College, numbers 920, 922, 925 and 959. Eggerth plots results show the following on the basis of fifteen per cent moisture corn: Kossuth Reliance 67.9 bushels, Roland Smith, 61.8, McArthur 59.1, Ennen, 58.3, C. Eggerth, 53.7. Hybrids rated as follows: Iowa State College 922, 68.5; Iowa State College 022, 66.8 and Henry. Field 62.5 bushels. The Godfrey plot showed Kossuth Reliance 50.4 and McArthurs 48.9; hybrids yielding Iowa State College, 920, 73.7; Henry Field, 62.1; and Iowa State College 959, 60.1 bushels. Hybrids Matured Well. Owing to the late fall the hybrids matured fairly well in most cases and may indicate that some of them are worth trying again in this locality although in general they were of high moisture content after the local varieties were well on the way to maturity. Well recognized local varieties of yellow and white corn continue as usual to be among the leaders in any test of yields. Both plots were planted with alternating to rows of test variety wjtih a standard check variety thus making possible corrections for variations hi soil, stand and moisture content.
