Retired 3-A Land Terms Provide Farmers May l Plant for Windbreaks, Woodlot, Forest. By 1* E. Sawyer, Extension Forester. Onl ▼eratty of Illinois.— WNU Service. Growing trees on land contracted to the government through the AAA /(wheat and corn-hog adjustment pro grams will prove more advantageous to farmers in many sections than crops planted on the same ground. On a large majority of farms, where corn-hog and wheat contracts are signed, the less productive land will be removed from cultivation. Under the terms of the contract, such land may be planted to trees for woodlot, windbreak or forest purposes. This is a decided advantage to some farmers. It gives them an opportunity to estab lish the long-needed protection with out reducing the area of the farm that Is available for cultivation. In many cases this less productive land will grow trees to better advan tage than it will grow farm crops, even under more normal conditions. In the future such tree plantings will yield valuable timber crops, or they will aid In the control of erosion, or both. Christmas trees, ornamentals and nursery stock are not permitted under the contract, but if wet, bottom land is removed from cultivation, trees which will mature in 12 to 15 years can be planted. Where taxes and car rying charges are not too high, these trees will often return a larger income at the end of the rotation than the landowner would have received from average crops of corn and wheat on the same areas. Thus, farmers may obtain reasonable returns in this man ner from the contracted acres in addi tion to the government benefit pay -ments. All Legume Seed Will Be Scarce, Price High Indications are that legume seed of all kinds for planting next spring will be scarce and higher in price. The regulations of the agricultural adjustment administration require that all land contracted to be removed from the cultivation of crops under adjust ment cannot be planted to competing cash crops. About the only thing these acres may be used for is soil-improving or erosion-preventing crops. Food and feed crops for home use may be grown, but feed crops used for fattening hogs for sale may not be planted. In other words, the contracted acreage cannot be used in whole or in part for the production, directly or Indirectly, for sale of any nationally produced and distributed agricultural product dur ing the time of the contract. “Therefore,” says Enos C. Blair, ex tension agronomist at North Carolina State college, “growers had best look to saving a good supply of all kinds of legume seed. Where velvet beans are grown, farmers would do well to save enough seed for their own re quirements.” In April, when the days are warm, spread the beans out in the sun on a sheet. After two days of exposure, most of the seed will have popped out of the pods. A few light blows with a stick will finish the job. Growers who have saved velvet bean seed at home have found them as good or superior to bought seed. Snow as Soil Thief “Snowdrift erosion” is the latest soil thief discovered by the Department of Agriculture. Occurring principally in the Northwest the erosion is reported to have lowered wheat yields in that section. For a wheat crop, says gov ernment experts, It Is the <•* mroon practice to furrow the :tand in the fall and crop it the next spring. The trou ble comes because the snowdrifts form on leeward slopes In winter end at the spring melting tarry away the loose, recently plowed soil. The phenome> a Is worst on northern slopes because the drifts are deepest there and the soil is not frozen when snow on top melts away.—Montreal Herald.

No portrait of Jesus was painted during his lifetime. No sculptor molded his face or figure. Among the countless thousands of likenesses that form what has become a con tinuous tradition, there Is one and only one that is even attributed to an eyewitness. It is the slight sketch by St. Peter and is preserved In the cathedral at Rome that bears his name. The story is that the apostle was at the house of I’udens (of whom St. Paul wrote to Timothy: “I’udens greeteth thee”) and was asked what Jesus was like. On a handkerchief provided by one of the women he traced an outline that still can be seen. It is thus remarkable that succes sive generations should have devel oped a kind of artistic orthodoxy, ac cording to which the face of Jesus is today beyond all other faces by Shakespeare Room Devotees of Shakespeare are fight ing to save the famous "painted room” in Cornmarket, Oxford, Eng land, where the Bard stayed. The place has been acquired by a cater ing firm, but steps have been taken to preserve the frontage. The Oxford Preservation Trust has asked that it be permitted to rent the place and use It as an information center for tourists. It is believed that the painted room was Shakespeare’s sleeping place. The building is con sidered a valuable relic of ancient architecture.

Here and there, an Epstein arises who evolves a different Jesus out of his inner consciousness. But it is what may be called the composite portrait of Christ—perfected through out nineteen centuries of worship and essentially the same in all coun tries—which, unchallenged, breathes his universal beatitudes. It is a face oval in contour, reg ular in features’ and Hebraic in pro file. The eyes are dark and fathom less In their depth of latent indigna tion against wrong, sympathy with suffering and insight into the motives of men. Above the clearly defined eyebrows rises a forehead, noble in its ample proportions, and the hair, worn long, is parted in the middle. Around the firm sensitive mouth there are mustache and beard.

The answer is that nowhere in the records is it stated or even implied that he laughed or smiled. From the first to last, he was what is known to students of Isaiah the prophet as the suffering servant, "a man of sorrow and acquainted with grief.” Knowing the world as he did, how was it possible for him to have been otherwise? Over the city of Jerusalem, over the tomb of Laz arus he wept. That multitudes of portraits of Jesus reveal a mood of weakness in the artist—some sickly sentimen tality, some unwholesome brooding, as in Byzantine art, over the tragedy in human life —is very true. There is no evidence that, on ordinary oc casions, his gravity—what may be called his sense of responsibility restrained the happiness of those around him.—P. W.
