Early Planting Recommended for
Semiarid Regions-Plants Injured
Less by Frost and Drought.
Corn will not grow during cold
weather as wheat and oats. Corn
planting time is, therefore, a little
later than tne best time for sowing
spring wheat or spring oats. How
ever, according to Farmers' Bulletin
773, when seed of perfect vitality is
used, it is remarkable how early in
the spring corn can be planted a.i
result in good stands and good yields.
Seed of perfect vitality will often rep
main in cold or dry s or several
weeks and afterwar9 iinate and
yield well. Irregul i. are some
times attribute; r seed, when
dry, poorly preW sts are the
cause. Fields are som imes seen in
which the seed germinated promptly
in moist spots but did not germinate
in dry spots until rains came.
Where the seasons are long and
moisture plentiful, it is customary to
wait until the soil is warm before
planting. In semiarid regions, how
ever, corn should be planted early.
With the soil in proper condition it
is generally advisable in semiarid re
gions, south as well as north, to
plant corn before danger from frost
is entirely past. Corn planted very
early usually makes a slow, tough
growth and a month after planting
may be smaller and look less promis
ing than that planted later. The
early planted corn riI-"ns first, how
ever, and usually produces the larger
or the better crop. Because of its
slow, tough growth corn planted very
early is not so susceptible to frost
and drought as corn planted later and
growing more rapidly. In a series
of years the gain in mature corn se
cured from early plantcing will more
tha.n make up for any injury from
spring frosts. Excellent corn crops
ha3ve been prodluced from plantings
frozen off or frozen back when the
plants were from a few inches to a
foot or more tall. Corn is not often
entirely killed by spring frosts, and
if some should be injured the loss is
much less serious than that from
summer drought or f rom fall frost.
Early plated corn dlerives more
benefit from the sprinm; moisture sup.
ply, becomes well rooted before sum
mer droughts begin, au-I may even
mature before these droughts become
Where the growing reason is very
long and warm, plantings made at
about 30-day intervals increase the
-chnt~es of hitting the season right
and raising some good corn.

First come, First
Clemson .College, S. C., Feb.- 5.
Just at this 'time, 'the first part of
February, and while little else can
be done on the farm on account of
bad weather, farmert might find
profitable employment in giving se
rious thought to the question of
fertilizers for this year. It would
be well for every farmer to determine
at once just what fertilizers he will
need, where he can obtain same, and
the best prices at which they can be
secured. It is certainly too frequent
ly the case that--a farmer will wait
until the active work of opring prep
aration of the soil is upon him before
the matter of purchasing and using
fertilizers is given serious considera
tion. As a consequence when he goes
out to buy at such a time he cannot
find what he wants but must take
just such as the dealer happens to
have on hand and pay any price he
is asked for it. Very satisfactory
results have been gotten in some sec
tions of the state by farmers getting
together in night meetings and dis
cussing their fertilizer problems. In
a g'reat many such meetings the
County Demonstration Agents have
rendered valuable service by entering
freely into the discussion and espec
ially by helping the farmers to form
Community Clubs' thro.gh which fer
tilizers were bought cooperatively at
a considerable saving. In one county
the demonstration agent reports a
saving of $3,000.00 to farmers from
cooperative purchasing alone and this
in only eleven small communities.
It has been found that the ferti
lizer dealers are usually ready, and
even anxious, to quote better prices
to a body of men on large lots than
to individuals on smaller lots and
this, upon its face, would seem to be
good business because the cost of dis
tribution is relatively less.
A special reason that might be
cited for buying fertilizers early this
season is the shortage of cars which
:ondition exists at this time and
nay become more acute when ferti
lizer shipments begin.
POTATOES AS FOOD
Perform Important Function in Keep
ing Body Tissues Alkaline-Meth
ods of Preparation.
The general use of potatoes in the
iverage family and the better cus
;oms prevailing in many homes in
preparing the tubers for food are bas
3d on sound economic and dietetic
reasons, according to specialists of
;he Office of Home Economics of the
United States Department of Agri
yulture. Studies o7 the preparation
and use of potatoes as food are re
orted in Department of Agriculture
Bulletin No. 468, recently issued.
Potatoes are easy to cook in a va
"iety of ways. From the point of
iew of dietetics, they furnish starch
n one readily digestible form, con
:ain mineral substances of import
mnce to the bady, and-a fact less
;enerally known--tend to make the
;issues and fluids of the body alkaline,
3o counteracting the tendency of
neants, eggs, fish, and like foods to
~rente acid conditions, Since the body
loes its work best wvhen its condition
s either neutral dr slightly alkaline,
otatoes, like most vegetables, p~er
form an important function in the
liet besides furnishing energy-pro
lucing material. This scientific fact
justifies the custom that is prevalent
n many faiiiies of serving a good!ly
up1~ply of potatoes or other vegetables
wit er~ch helping~ of ment.
Potatoes, howvever, while a valluable
mdditiond.o ai mixed diet, alone are not
stuidied to meet the nee-!s of the bo ly
eeause~ of their poverty i' um ite ins
mn.1 fat. .Of these latter me,ortant
3lemients protein is furnished in
neats, eggs, fish, milk, beans, and
iimilar foods, and fat in butter, ba
~on, table oils, and the fats and oils
Isedi in cookery.
Greater care than commonly is ex
3rcised should be taken in peeling po
~atoes. Very often 20 per cent of the
*otato is pared away. This results
iot only in the waste of considerable
iotato but also in the loss of one of
he most valuable portions of the
uber, since the soluble mineral salts
ire present in the material near the
kin, which Would be removed and
bhrown away. These salts can be pre..
ervedi by a more careful removal of
he skin, as by shallow paring or rub
>ing, andl also by boiling or baking
he potatoes in their jackets.

,-Paring lbef4re boiling, however,
may be the :moat desirable method of
cooking potatoes which through an
undue expooure to light may have ac- I
quired a bitter taste, or those which
have been kept until late in the spring
since ,in ,this way more of the dis
agreeable flavor is eliminated. Such
potatoes may also be soaked before
While these methods may be de
sirable with potatoes which have been l
exposetd to light, they result in the
loss of considerable food value with
out compensating advantages .. when
applied to new or well-matured pota
toes. If such potatoes are boiled af
ter paring, they should be dropped
into boiling water instead of being
placed on the stove in cold water. By
the latter method there is twice the
loss of protein, or tissue-building ele
ments, resulting from the former. The
loss of mineral matter is about the
same by each method. There is no
loss of starchy material in boiling
unless portions of the tuber break off.
Practically the only loss when po
tatoes are baked i their skins is of
the water which escapes as steam.
The more or less common custom of
pricking holes in the skin of baked
potatoes or breaking them is explain
ed by the fact that unless the steam
which is formed inside the skin is
allowed to escape it will change back
into water and produce soggine.ss.
Potatoes which have turned green
and sprouting tubers have present a 2
considerable quantity of solanin, an
acrid poisonous substance which,
though not dangerous in the quanti- I
ties ordinarily met with, gives a dis- I
agreeable flavor. It is best, therefore,
to avoid such potatoes or to cut out I
green or sproating portions.

he price of cotton has risen, it is

Safe farming is defined in the cir
ular as including these items:

otation to time the vegetable crops

(2) Enough corn on each farm to

ne year, with a little excess for

:rain to supplement the corn as food

mall grains conserve the soil in win

(5) The necessary meat, eggs, and .
