Oklahoma Woman;
Champion Farmer
in Wheat Raising
Hr Ataoclntej l'rel
Muskogee, Okla., Nov. 8 A real
dirt farmer is Mrs. Sidney Sharpe of
Porum, south of here in this county,
who has been designated the chain-
pion producer of oats in easter Ok
lahoma this year. Her farm lands
yielded 70 bushels to the acre, on an
average, whereas many other farm
ers in the neighborhood produced
but 25 to 30 bushels.
Mrs. Shame is the largest woman
land-owner in Muskocee county. She
holds title to 800 acres, 500 of which
were in cultivation last year, and ran
three tractors.
Mrs. Sharpe is a student of diver
sified farming. Although her land
is located in a rich cotton country,
she devotes but a reasonable acreage
to that staple. In addition to rais
ing oats and wheat, she produces
corn, kafir, sorghum and other feed
crops. ,

"If it is discovered during the pro

not covered before the opening of the

acceptance makes good by transfer
