Kansas Must Plant Wheat Kansas must sow 10,000,000 acres of wheat this fall if she does ber part in winning the war. The increased acreag must be largely in the wheat belt of western Kansas and the labor and the expense must fall large ly upon the farmers in a compar atively few counties. Kansas is abundantly able, and is willing, without stimulation, or encouragement, to sow the normal wheat crop. To under take to handle this increased acreage, which is so important to the welfare of the country, it is necessary io naye a very large portion of the state share in the undertaking. The state council of defense met yesterday to make plans for creating two funds one a direct cash loan fund, and the other a crop share loan fund, amounting all together to about $2,000,000, with which to finance the extra undertaking of growing a 200,-000,000-bushel crop of weeat. A committee was appointed to, supervise the lending of money to local committees in each of the counties in which seed area is expected to be expanded and to supervise the purcbaseof seed wheat for other counties which are short this year. Arrangements are also made for a detailed survey of the conn ties which are likely to increase their whpat arrafrp 4 A An-. mine exactly the amount of seed wheat'' needed and the amount necessary to finance the increas ed undertaking.
