The National Corn Association has
selected December 6 to 18 at the dates
for the National Corn Exposition of
1909. It will be held at Omaha.
In selecting the dates named, the
National Corn Association has explain
ed that the plans for smaller corn Bhows
in all parts of the country made it im
possible to hold the national show on
any other dates than those selected
during the first weeks of December.
To hold it earlier would not permit the
state shows to get their prize corn
ready and shipped to the national show.
When it is taken into consideration that
Illinois alone holds 10.IXK) school district
corn contests, some idea of the immense
amount of preparation necessary for
the state and national shows, may be
gathered. The state shows do not close
before Thanksgiving week und more
than one week is required to get the
prize corn and grains to the big show
To hold the National Corn Show later
