Topeka, Kan., Aug. 2.-Stories of
sudden wealth in the Kansas wheat
belt are numerous this year, due to
the unusual acreage of "volunteer
iwheat," a cro) grown from seeds
1which fall in the previous harvesting.
Officially estimated there was 1,500,000
acres of volunteer wheat in Kansas
this year, or about a sixth of the total
harvested acreage. This wheat yield
ed probably 10,04.10,000 bushels or rep
resenting a monetary value of about
$100,000,000. The total Kansas crop
of wheat is estimated officially at 150,
The large aeruage of volunteer
wheat is due to the fact that a great
deal of this acreage was deserted as
wheat land. by the owners, after last
year's nene too bountiful crop had
been harvested. The 1919 acreage
was in excess of I1,ot00Ij(m, by far the
record for any state in the union. A
wet fall caused the kernels of wheat
A hieh had fallen to the groundt during

Favorable summer rains have prac

officially estimated at 140,000,000 bush- a

assert that the continued favorable y
weather means the yield will mount'ei
still higher. The Kansas weather bu- ii
reau here reported that it is the first s<
year in its 3 years existence that Kan- 11
sas had "bumper" wheat and corny
crops the same year. A banker who I
has lived in Kansas 52 years, is au-, 1,
thority for the statement that in that .
time, such a favorable crop combina- tj
tion never before occurred. L
, Similar conditions prevail with the
oats and barley crops which have been
harvested. The state raised 20,000,000
bushels of barley--four times the av- s
