SCIENCE on (he Flirt!
Recent advances in agricultural science are helping farmers
beat the squeeze caused by lower prices and higher costs,
t Farmers long have known that nitrogen is essential to plant
growth. But only recently has it s
become clear that enough molyb
denum, often called moly, must be
in the soil before nitrogen is con
verted to a form usable by crops.
At a top level conference at the
McCollum-Pratt Institute, Dr.
W. D. McElroy noted that a
farmer can expect a yield of three
tons of hay when he sows an
acre of alfalfa, but he won’t get
it unless adequate moly is avail
Another agronomist, Alfred J.
Anderson, reported clover yields
up from nearly nothing to more
than three tons an acre after ap
plication of a few ounces of a moly
Citrus growers have found that
the plant disease known as “yel
low spot” is nothing more than
molybdenum deficiency. Today
the disease is being controlled by
spraying the trees with just a few
ounces of soluble moly per acre.
Several other plant diseases
have been fought successfully
through the application of moly,
and county agents now know that
all crops require this essential
trace element. Indeed, because
moly is so inexpensive, many
farmers are using it as a kind of
To farmers everywhere, the dis
covery of moly’s importance has
been a boon, for with such varied
crops as tobacco, tomatoes, celery,
sugar beets, peas, broccoli, alfalfa
and cauliflower, added moly has
meant the difference between
scanty and vigorous growth.

Keeping Little Feet on the Ground
IT ONLY TAKES A COUPLE OF MONTHS and a normal supply of
vitamins before the little tot you just brought home from the hospital
is flexing his muscles and taking off at high speeds for points un
known. His major enemy—the slippery fall. That’s why mothers today
! are buying sleepers made with Kiegel Safe-Soles. They keep baby
from slipping and put mother’s mind at ease. Riegel Safe-Soles have
tiny plastic dots in attractive baby pink, red, mint, yellow, white,
aqua, green or blue, that grip the floor under baby’s feet, holding him
firmly and securely. Garments with Safe-Soles may be machine-^
washed and dried. Look for these soles when buying new sleepers for
your baby. By Kiegel Textile Corp., 260 Madison Aw, N. Y. C.

BATHING SUITS OF YESTERYEAR covered a multitude of sins.
A less than perfect figure or complexion could be hidden beneath the

you—be at your best. There’s great news for sunners and swimmers

take to the sun. Waterproof Covermark by Lydia O’Leary is a com

your eyes. It’s especially effective for covering relatively large areas
like unsightly broken veins, brown and white spots, burns, scars, skin 1

insurance that your legs and body—all blemishes hidden—will be in *
the “long-stemmed American Beauty” class. Spot-stick, the same '

ucts will keep all your complexion secrets and help you take your]
