NEITHER EXTREME DESIRABLE Greatest Total Growth of Stalk Made From Planting in May or June— Experiments of State Stations Corroborated. (Prepared by trie I'nited States Department or Agriculture.) No gain is made in yield or maturity hy planting corn before conditions of foil and atmosphere are right, in the Opinion of the United Stutes Depart ment of Agriculture. Corn growers ill localities with a long season have Observed that early and late plantings 6f the same variety usually show wide differences in growth and number of days required to reach maturity. Iu general, corn which is seeded early Requires a longer time to come up than that which is planted later. The plants also grow more slowly, are shorter, and bear their ears lower. These are commonly observed effects of the date of planting. Best Yields From Early Seeding. Studies recently have been made by the United States Department of Agri Culture at the Arlington experimental farm near Washington, D. C., in order to obtain data which would supplement that obtained earlier at the various state experiment stations. Numerous experiments have been conducted by the state pgricultural experiment sta tions to determine the influence of the different dates of planting on corn fields. The state experiments re viewed indicate that the best yields Of grain may be expected from the *arly seedings and the most rapid de velopment and greatest growth from the later seedings. Neither the ex tremely early nor the very late plant lugs are desirable. The department investigations were directed more to a study of the effects upon growth and development than to determining the most desirable date of planting from the standpoint of yield. The results of these studies, which extended over a five-year period, are presented In Department Bulletin No. 1014, Effect of Date of Seeding on Germination, ^Growth, and Develop ment of Corn, by E. B. Brown and H. S. Garrison, which may be had upon application to the department. The varieties of corn used in the experiments cover a wide range in the length of the growing season required. The data tabulated are limited to the characters that seem to have been consistently affected, although the points studied included the rapidity of germination, the number of days from emergence to ripening, the height of stalks, the number of ears per plant, the average weight of ea *s, the average yield per plant, and the number of suckers. In all the experiments the germina tion of corn increased In rapidity as the date of seeding occurred later. When sown early the short-season northern varieties came up sooner than the varieties from the central and southern states. When sown later the differences in this respect were not usually apparent. May or June Favored. The total growth of stalk was greatest from the seedings in June and THE HERALD ADVANCE J* Plant Corn in May or June for Best Growth and Yield. May. The total growth was least and rate of growth slowest from the April seedings. Development was more rapid in the later than in the earlier seed ings. 1 Tlie number of ears per stalk, the size of the ear, and the amount of suckering bore no consistent relation to the date of seeding. The pollen shedding period was longer in plants from the early seedings than In those from the later seeding*. Seedings earlier than normal resulted In slight gains in the date of silking. These experimenta corroborate the conclusions of the state experiment stations, that corn may be planted in the vicinity of Washington and other localities with a similar season, any time after May 1, without dnniror of rhe seed rotting. The best condition* of soil and atmosphere usually come between Mav 10 and May 20. Start Vegetable* Eariy.

Entomologists Report New Pest in Form of European Webworm Which Also Attacks and in jures Turnips and Cabbage. I*repared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) Even the pungent and tear-starting qualities of horse-radish are not suf ficient to discourage insect enemies. In addition to two other specific and two incidental pests preying upon this plant, entomologists of the United States Department of Agriculture re port a third specific enemy, known as the European horse-radish webworm and described In a bulletin of that title, Department Bulletin No. 9G6, just issued. The caterplllt*, which doet tht most destruction, is of medium size and is also known as the purple hacked web-worm, as well as by iu regular Horse-Radish Root Showing Value of Deep Digging for Straight Roots— This Applies to All Root Vegetables. name. While favoring horse-radish, it is also known to attack turnip and cabbage, and after feeding on the lower surface of the leaves sometimes webs them together near the ground. When abundant, It attacks the stalks even down to the roots. It was tirst discovered in injurious numbers in Vir ginia, near the District of Columbia, in 1919, and occasional attacks have been noted In Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, and Wisconsin. The moth of the species is rather a bright ocher yellow, with a wing spread of about 1 inch, peculiarly spotted. The eggs are deposited in compact masses containing from half a dozen to a score. They are a little brighter green than the leaf, and each egg is surrounded by an irregular ring of yellow spots. The webworm may be controlled by arsenicals and by hand-picking on horse-radish, and more readily on other crops by fall and spring plow ing and frequent cultivation. TEST SEEDS BEFORE SOWING Of Big Advantage to Farmer to De termine Purity and Germination of Various Grains. Whether the seed is for sale or for his own use on the farm, the farmer will find it to his advantage to test his seed, or have It tested, for purity and germination. In making a purity test, according to the United Slates Department of Agriculture, It Is cus tomary to determine the percentage of pure seed, inert matter such as dirt, chaff, and broken seeds, and foreign seeds, including weed and other kinds. A sample is taken varying in weight from 1 to 100 grams or more (a tea spoon for the clovers and small-seeded grasses, a tablespoon for the grasses, and a considerably larger amount for cereal grains), depending upon the size of the seed being examined. For the germination test usually two lots of 100 seeds each are placed on or between blotting paper, canton flan nel, or such material, and kept in a room or chamber at a temperature of 60 degrees to 80 degrees F. for 3 to 28 days, depending upon the kind of seed being tested. Samples for purity and germination tests may be sent to the seed labora tory of the United States Department of Agriculture at Washington, D. C., or to the nearest branch seed labor atory of the United States Department of Agriculture at Washington, D. C., or to the nearest branch seed laboratory located at Lafayette, Ind. Columbia, Mo.

CHIC PARIS WRAP Coatee Considered as Becoming as It Is Practical. Beit or an Elaborate Girdle Used Un MM the Garment Is wt the Eaton Design, The smart "little coatee" is play ing a very important role this spring. It is a delicious affair, notes u Paris fashion correspondent, as becoming as It is practical just the thing for pretty girls and even for their still pretty mothers. The "little coatee" of today is a near relution of the sac garment. As a rule, a belt or elaborate girdle will be found on the latest short coatees, un less these be of eton design, but many of the more important points of the straight fur coats are repeated. The long wide sleeves, the big rollover col lar, the cnexpected lining. A model was made of the new silk and wool which Is supple as crepe de chine and produced in the most mar velous colors. The special model was carried out in black and white and the intention was that It should be worn over either a black or white skirt. The coatee, which was really rather like a Russian blouse, was lined and turned -ver with black satin. Over the hips there was a trellis girdle to Little Wrap of Thick White Silk ricot. Which was appended a length of wide and very heavy silk fringe. This model was universally admired at Dul cet's early spring opening. There is no doubt about the coming popularity of little garments of this order—some very much more elabo rate and made of gorgeous materials. The latest idea is to wed eccentricity to simplicity. If the skirt be ultra elaborate the corsage or coatee must be very simple, and vice versa. Helpful Suggestion. Women who wear camisoles and bloomers that slip on with elastic at the waist usually find the elastic is stretched and "dead" after the gar ment has been to the laundry a few times, and so the best thing is to sew a hook and eye, or snappers, firmly on the end of the elastic and remove It before the garment Is washed. A safety pin makes a "header" that does not allow the tape to slip while it ia put in. HONEY SHADES FOR BLOUSES Cftlor Is Regarded With Keenest Feel-' ing in Paris, Manufacturer Just Returned, Reports. "Noisette, or honey shade. Is the color the French are regarding with the keenest feeling at the moment," said a New York manufacturer of dresses, who returned from his season visit abroad. "Color, of course, is on the ascendant, with the soft shades, not quite amber In tone, verging on the golden, honey hues, occupying first place. In the same breath In which one mentions first pla 1 sight cannot he lost of the prominent role that crepe rorna is playing In the develop ment of the dress for the new season.

SURPRISES IN WASH DRESSES Simplicity Promises to Rule in Soth the Cheap Cotton and the More Expensive Lines. Opposite tendencies of ornateuew and simplicity are at work In the dress trade in the cheap cotton and the more expensive lines respectively. One firm that caters to high-class patronage exclusively said recently that the new spring dresses will tend to long, straight lines with a minimum of trimmings. Such trimming as will be used will be confined to ribbons and the simpler decorative materials. Embroideries, both hand and machine, will be used but little, it was stated. Another firm, which manufacture? cheap wash dresses, porch dresses, summer dresses, and like, predicted many innovations in their line. The simple organdie collar, though It will continue to be used, Is not going to hold the field to itself, and will, to a great extent, be replaced by other ma terials. says Women's Wear. Several complete surprises are In store for the buyer who visits New \ork la search of wash dresses, it was said. Sweaters Show New Lines. Straight lines predominate In tha sweaters. Silk and mohair make at* tractive mixtures with a soft effect The mosaic design is employed in many as a new border around the hoi torn of the sweater. Kgyptiwu figures which are much smaller than the Fuire Isle design are being shown in many coloi combinations, while bidding fair for a greater popularity is the sweater of a loose knit, giving almost a lace effect. These are shown in short sleeves with the round neck, and some with satrtiea or girdles. Individual Style. Fashion offers so many suggestions ttiat may be individualized by a little bit of thought that there seems no reason way every woman should not be well and charmingly costumed. The selection of the right accessories is nc small matter, even so trilling a thinj as a hair ornament being able to make or mar an entire outfit. flints on Hats. Faille Is one of the silks rery much featured in the development of spring hats, this with slipper satin rather re placing taffeta except in hats for tfc&> dren, where it reigns strong. wherein an apron tunic was attached by a line cut in festooned gaps, with massed shirrings shaping it flatly over the stomach. The same effect was re peated on the long, wide sleeve, in this instance, the shirring mass forming a fitted cuff. SHOULD MATCH THE CAMISOLE Transparent Peplum Blouse Worn With Light Garment Not Pleas ing to the Eye. There is nothing uglier than transparent peplum blouse worn 4l ths with a light camisole or corset cover. When the front and back panel of the blouse are of some heavier mate rial the effect is satisfactory. But when georgette or chiffon Is used then a dark camisole Is really needed. Soft satin Is a good selection for the fabric, although crepe de chine is also good. They can be finished nt the top with machine hemstitching, such as you can have done at a dressmakers* supply store, and the shoulder straps may either be made of ribbon to match or some of the fabric finished with a narrow hemstitching of the same sort, and they should he adjusted BO that none of the lighter lingerie ftppemv above the dark camisole. Medium-Sized Crowns Medium-sized crowns, fashioned to fit the head snugly, and brims of medium width are two of the style recommendations for spring, nnd the brim that Is narrower In the back than In the front promises to he very popular. Certainly this type of brim is comfortable and It is generally be coming.
