The seedbed was well prepar
ed and the cotton was planted
April 2 using the furrow meth
od of planting. Seed was de
Varieties included in this test
were Mebane, Atwood, Kasch,
Paris Big 8011, Stoneville 1-4,
Eastern Acalo. and Bakersfield
Acala. The first three varieties
are similar in type. The Stone
ville 1-4 is the Lone Star Type,
and the latter two varieties are
Acala strains, one being Nunn’s
Acala. developed in Oklahoma
and Texas, and the other Bak
ersfield Acala, developed in
California, and also frequently
giown in Arizona and consider

ing Fred Krateka Ranch
On Monday May 8, the Co.
Agricultural agent, and M. H.
Montgomery, who is fanning
the Fred Kratska ranch north
west of Casa Grande, planted a
variety test consisting of seven
varieties of upland cotton.
These varieties include local
Acala (of the type generally
used by growers,) Bakersfield
Acala, Queen Creek Acala (A
type developed in the Queen
Creek Section east of Chandler)
Mebane, Kasck, toneville 1-4,S
and Paris Big 8011.
A field day will be held late
in the fall, as was done at the
Lane planting last year, at
which growers will have an op j>
portunity of studying the
cottons. In the meantime cot
ton growers are cordially invit
ed to visit the variety test plot
and compare the varieties.

Entirely definite conclusions
cannot be drawn from these Ist

parently no real difference be
tween Kasch, Nunn’s Acala,
and Paris Big 8011. Bakerfield
Acala did not outyield Mebane
greatly in lint cotton yet that
strain of Acala showed up de
cidedly better than Mebane in
quality of lint. Stoneville was
definitely inferior to both Bak
ersfield Acala and Mebane bas
ed on yield of lint cotton.
It appears, from the stand
point of both yield and quality'
that the varieties included in
this test, Bakersfield Acala
offers the greatest possibilities
for Pinal County cotton grow
ers. This result conforms with
experience gained in many vari
ety tests conducted in the irri

Coolidge will observe “Poppy
Day" this year on May 27, the
Saturday before Memorial Day
it has been announced by Mrs.
Craig, chairman of the poppy
committee of William David
Unit of American Legion Hood
Auxiliary. The Unit is making
extensive preparations for the
observance of the day and is
hoping for the full co-operation
of all other organizations and
Memorial poppies' to be worn
in honor of the World War dead
will be made available to every
one in the city by volunteer
workers from the Auxiliary Unit
Organization of the workers is
going forward rapidly under the
direction of Mrs. Craig, and the
Unit is expecting to have its
“poppy girls" in all parts of the
down town district throughout
the day.
“Poppy Day" is the day for
personal tribute to the men who
lost their lives in the country’s
service, Mrs. Craig explained.
“It is a day when all can
show that they still remember
and honor the sacrifices made
by those who defended Ameri
ca during the great war crisis,
and that they are carrying on
for America in time of peace.
The poppy is a patriotic sym
bol which means honor for the
dead and service for the living.
“No price will be asked for
the American Legion Auxiliary
poppies. The Auxiliary wants
everyone to wear a poppy and
to contribute for the flower ac
cording to his means. All con
tributions will be used for re
lief work among the disabled
veterans and their families, the
bulk of the money going to sup.
port the relief activities of our
local Auxiliary Unit among
needy families in this city."

The Coolidge Cubs went to
Goodyear last Sunday for a ball
game with the team at that
place. Heavy hitting was a
feature of the game, and altho
many runs were made on both
sides, it was a very exciting
game from start to finish.
In the first half of the ninth
inning, Cunningham of Cool
idge, made a home run with
two men on bases, thus cinching
the game by a score of 13 to 8
in favor of Coolidge.
Next Sunday, May 14, the
Goodyear team will play the
Cubs on the Coolidge grounds
and it is hoped that a large
crowd will be at the ball park
to root for the home team.
Coolidge seems to have two
good teams this season and
should be able to entertain the
Coolidge fans with a game every
Sundav at the home ball park.
By arranging the games, that
one team played at home each
alternate Sunday while the
other played at some other
town, Coolidge could enjoy a
ball game every Sunday during
the season.
