(Signed) Yours very truly, A. E. Vinson, Biochemist. ' "The assertion has often been made that sorghum grown in arid regions produced syrup of a poor quality due to excessive mineral salts. Recently a sample of sorghum syrup of appar ently good quality prepared from cane grown near Yuma was examined in this laboratory. In the accompanying table a comparison is made of the Yuma product with analyses reported in Wollf's Aschenanalysen and Wiley's Foods and Their Adulteration. The Arizona syrup contains less than half as much mineral matter as Wiley's example, although it apepars to be about the same concentration. It con tains only a little more mineral mat ter than the average given for raw sorghum sugar according to Wollf and very much less than the molasses from raw sugar. We presume the .samples reported by Wollf and by Wiley were produced in humid climates. One striking feature of the ash of the Ari zona syrup compared with Wollf's sam ple is its relatively high sulphate con tent and relatively low chloride con tent." With the results obtained it is sug gested that sorghum molasses be made at the Fort Yuma school for shipment to the many Indian schools throughout the United States. No doubt this will develop into a great industry for the school as it will require many thousand , gallons to supply schools of the ser vice. ruary 15 and are still going into the ground at this date, February 25. The ground should be rich and well worked before planting and the seed pieces of the tubers should be placed in moist soil. Medium sized- eight ounce seed potatoes cut in four to six pieces use" about 700 pounds per acre. Bliss Triumph, Irish Cobbler, Early Ohio and Early Rose are the popular early varieties. In both Yu ma and Salt River Valleys growers did well with early potatoes last year. In Cochise county I talked with a number of growers who have done' well with early and double crop po tatoes. B. O. Payne at Cochise se cured about 150 bushels per acre on his first planting of Bliss Triumph and followed with about the same yield as a second planUng upon the same ground. Mortensen Brothers at Duncan in j Greenlee county plant their first crop I of Bliss Triumph about March 1 and dig the first crop about August 1. This year the second crop yielded eight tons of potatoes upon one and three fourth acres. E. P. TAYLOR. Director Agri. Extension.

The early sea son at which the planting may be done insures early digging in time for a fall crop. Although the price of early seed potatoes is high one may be reasonably sure of high prices for the new crop from all appearances and if the yield is good the early crop will pay very well. Some early potatoes were planted in the Yuma and Salt River Valleys as early as January 15 and a consid erable number had been planted by February 1 to 10.
