Many Iowa wool producers will again market their wool in cooperation with the Federal Farm Board under the plan established last year, according •to C. W. McDonald, extension specialist in sheep and wool production at Iowa State College. The various sheep and woo] growers' associations plan to pool the wool and ship to the Iowa Sheep & Wool Growers' warehouse in Des Molnes. There the wool will be grad- h , schools In the North-Central district, which includes Kossuth, Wlnnebago Worth, Mitchell, Palo Alto, Hancock, Cerro Oordo, Pocahontas, Humboldt, Wright and Franklin counties. The two pupils making the highest grades hi each subject in the district will be entitled to compete In the state scholarship contest which will be held on June 1 and 2 on the campus of the State University of Iowa. The same pupils may compete In more than one subject in the state contest. The fundamental purposes <V the Iowa academic contest are to assist the high schools of the state In their attempts to measure the achevement of the pupils, to encourage better scholarship and more effective Instruction and to make more rapid progress In the for the coin.

Fertilizer Plots. An extensive fertilizer demonstration to include several rates of application will be established this season on the old Cook farm north of Bancroft now occupied by Mr. Dontje. The Kossuth county farm bureau is cooperating with the A. A. fertilizer people who are funishing the material to establish four such plots in the state this year and also furnishing help to put the plot in and keep record on the results. 125 pounds of twenty per cent phosphate will be applied on one acre by plant- ter attachment and 125 pounds per ac re of 3-14-6 will be applied to five acres by planter attachment. In addition on the last three acres of the 3-14- G plot will be given broadcast applications of 3-14-6 ab the rate of 175 pounds, 375 pounds and 675 pounds per acre respectively. The plot will help to find how high applications may go and still be profitable from the standpoint of immediate return as well as the possible results from the residual effect on subsequent crops during the following years. The applications range from 125 pounds to 800 pounds per acre on full acre strips. This plot on primary No. 169 about four miles north of Bancroft will undoubtedly prove of interest to the many users of fertilizer in the county and is owned by W. A. Murray and J. A. Devine of Bancroft. Furnishing; Material. The N. W. Potash Export Company is also furnishing material for similar plots on alkali soils where not only Immediate returns will be noted, but also the lasting effect of heavier applications. These plots will include mur- iate of potash, the material now being generally used locally on alkali and also, sulphate of potash and manganese sulphate. Applications will be both broadcast and planter attachment and will vary from 50 to 1,000 pounds per addition to these larger trials there will be several demonstrations to include 0-20-0 and 0-16-8 on prairie sod, as well as the use of twenty per cent phosphate for legume sceclings on acid and alkali soils.

You may learn them only in spots and have no clear idea of the whole subject. The usual cause of hazy recitations is hazy thinking. I recommend the tiresome old virtue of concentration as the basis for glib recitations. If you 'keep the seat of your pants on the seat of your chair during long study periods you will find yourself able to think quickly when you are on your feet. It is rather important for you to earn to speak without embarrassment n the classroom for this will prepare you to speak in public, after you have eft school." Honor Roll.

One might wish, too, that he had quoted a little more and commented and paraphrased less. But it would be ungrateful caviling to criticize over-much a book which opens so many intriguing peep-holes upon events of significance." Invitation Track Meet A track meet was held at the Athletic Park on Saturday afternoon at one oclock The entrants' were as follows: Clear Lake, Emmetsburg, Buffalo Center and Algona. Algona won three cups out of the four that were given. Two were relay cups and the other was an Invitation meet cup. In the 880 yard relay, Algona won with the time of one minute, forty-one and eight-tenths seconds. The winning team for the quarter mile relay was Algona with a time of forty-eight second flat. William won the 100- yard dash with the time of ten and five-tenths seconds. Algona won second in the high Jump with Ostrum tie- ing the school record. In the mile relay Dick Cowan was outlasted by a Buffalo Center man. The time was three miutes and fifty-five seccmds The Emmetsburg freshmen team won the quarter mile relay over Algona.
