In a report of the 15S3 to-opera-

on in Nebraska, agronomists at the !

growing in Nebraska. They indieat"
however, that grain sorghums will
never become as important in No-
oraska as they are in southwestern
states. Grain sorghums have their
greatest value in Nebraska condi
tions as a safety measure against
drouth. In contrast to corn, they
frequently remain more or less dor
mant during dry hot weather cnly
to enew growth and yield in a sur- j
prising way following more favor
able conditions. In those parts cf
the state where drouth is most like
ly to occur, it appears that a part of
the corn acreage might be well put
into the better grain sorghums. P.

Sorghums are commonly infected
with kernel smut which may prac
tically ruin the crop. The best treat
ment is to dut the seed with 2 to C
ounces of cepper carbonate ped bush
el as is recommended for wheat. It
is strongly recommended that grow
ers who arc rutting out a consider
able acreage treat their seed as out
lined. Sorghums should not be planted be
fore the soil warms up well. At Lin-
col nthis means about May 2Z. Plant- jrcu3 of Flale polics and special de
ing may be delayed, tho until the puties on the alert, patroling the St
first week in June. In general from
Mav 25 to June 10 should be satis
factory times of planting where full
maturitj" is desired.
Some of the sorghum farm test
results are also announced by the
agronomists. On the P. H. Larrick
farm nrar Bladen in Webster county,
corn failed but Teterita made 4 5
bushels to the acre, club kaf.r 4 3.0
bushels, kalo 41.6 bushels, dawn kafir

TALKING E00K FOE ELIOT)
New York. The first talking book,
an invention which it is hoped will
free thousands of sightless people
from the touch method of reading,
will be released by the library of
congress in April, II. B. Irwin, execu
tive director of the American Foun
dation for the Blind, announced. Ir
win said the talking book is "the most
sweeping invention in behalf of the
blind since the introduction cf Braille
100 years ago."
"The talking bock will free thou
sands of blind people from their de
pendence on the touch method and
will enable them to read thru the
ear," Irwin said. "Thru arrange
ments with the library of congress
talking book libraries will be estab
lished thruout the country and the
foundation plans to launch a cam
paign for $150,000 in order to place
5,000 talking machines into the

F0UL0IS TALKS WITH AIDS
Chicago. Announcement of the
date when air mail flying wili be re

expected by Saturday as a result of
conferences begun by Major General
Foulois, air chief, and the air mail
zone commanders. General Foulois
flew his plane into the municipal
field, followed by Major B. Q. Jones,
eastern zone, to join Col. Horace M.
Hickam, central zone, and Col. H. H.
Arnold, western zone head, who flew
into Chicago Thursday.
General Foulois explained his trip
as an effort to check over men, ma-
terial. supplies and replacements,
with a view to determining just what
the air corps is equipped to do in the
matter of mail transport and to out
line what additional material is nec
essary for any expansion of the serv

EXPECTS CHECK TO DISEASE
Chicago. Dr. Maude Slye, noted
pathologist, was quoted by the Her

article as foreseeing longevity and
freedom from diseases for future gen

for her discovery that cancer may
be completely eliminated by selected
mating. The article quotes her as
stating that experiments over a quar

other diseases to which men inherit
a tendency may also be stamped out
by the same method.

Last Herd oi

Signmaster Estate at Heota Sells
11 Huge Beasts to Stockyards
at Cedar Eapids, la.
Keota, la., March 1C. Iowa's last
herd of buffalo has succumbed to in
roads of the "white settler."
Without fanfare or panoply, 11
shaggy, hunchbacked beasts, once
mighty lords of the prairie, went
to an ignominious death in the Cedar
Rapids stockyards sold at market
price of beef.
The 11 animals, each tipping the
scales at a ton or more, were the last
of a herd of 50 kept more than 30
years on J. O. Singmaster's estate a
mile north of here.
Their going leaves only a few
buffalo scattered over the state in
public parks and zoos. No herd
worthy of the name, historians say,
survives in Iowa.
Mr. Singmaster inherited the herd
and the 520-acre estate from his fath
er, the late C. F. Singmaster. who
started the herd with one bull and
two cows obtained from Yellowstone
National park in IS 02.
-Many ot the ijunalo sold lor as
much as $250 and provided juicy
steaks for clubs and lodge parties.
Each year one was butchered by the
Singmaster family and friends. The
finest specimen was mounted for the
State Historical museum at Des

RIGHT AND LEFT OF
THE SUPREME COURT
The constitutional battle in the
I'nited States supreme court has only
begun in connection with the new
deal, yet with the heavy battalions
thus far in support of Mr. Dooley's
celebrated dictum that, in the last
analysis, the supreme court follows
the election returns. The 5-lo-4 divi
sion iu both the Minnesota and the
Xew York cases has been identical
in personnel, and the promise now is
that in future cases, raising sub
stantially the same issue, this lineup
will hold fast.
Most of the supreme court justices
are past 70 years of age. In case of
the death cf any member of the
court, however, during the remaining
three years of the present adminis
tration. President Roosevelt wiil
name his successor. That he would
not nominate one who would prob
ably join the minority as disclosed
in the Minnesota moratorium and
New York milk cases, may be taken
for granted. Consequently, the odds
now seem to favor the maintenance
of a majority of the court in support
of the constitutional interpretation
on which the chief "recovery" acts
Party lines are notable for their
obliteration in the division of the
nine justices in these cases, as hith
erton developed. There are republi
cans and democrats on both sides. It
is even more interesting, however to
observe that no less than four of the
five so-called liberal justices
Hughes, Stone, Roberts and Cardozo
received their nominations from
conservative presidents. Mr. Hoover
selected Justices Hughes, Roberts
and Cardozo, while Justice Stone owes
his place to Mr. Coolidge. The re
maining liberal. Justics Brandeis.
alone was elevated by President Wil
son, the outstanding liberal president
since Theodore Roosevelt. On the
other hand, the most encrusted con
servative on that bench. Justice Mc-
Reynolds, was also the choice of Pres
These facts are cited to show that
if presidents nominate supreme court
justices in the expectation that their
votes in five-to-four decisions will
usually take a particular direction,
they are often bad guessers. If a
president nominates hi? own attorney
general to the supreme court, as
many presidents have done, there is
no assurance that the new justice's
later development will accord with
the forecasts. President Wilson nom
inated his first attorney general, Mr.
Moltf yiioids, with amusing results
from the reactionary point cf view;
and this is equally true of President
Coolidge's choice of his attorney gen
eral, Mr. Stone, for that bench.
'J ne drollest upset of the forecast
ers, however, has been Chief Jus
tice Hughes' reinforcement in. num
erous notable decision of the court's
left wing. The senate progressives
sharply attacked his nomination as
an unwarranted addition to the re
actionary forces of the court. The j
chief justice has made fools of them j
with solemn consistency since he be
gan to preside over the court's busi
ness. He seems to be more at home j
in the left wing than in the right
wing. Springfield Republican. ;
