' Much time was devoted to th
question of getting good seed corn
and a plan has been worked out
whereby the government will put an
expert in each county for the next
30 days to assist the farmers in test
ing all seed com before planting
same. John W. Keeling will have
charge of the work in this county.
It appears from tests and reports that
there is only a small percentage of
corn that is matured well enough to
germinate and come up.
This is a very vital matter for
the farmer to consider and it is hoped
no person will be so short sighted
as to put seed com into the ground
without first knowing whether it
will sprout and grow.
