In a letter sent out to every

The suggestion the state super

boys all want to go to work foi
him , they can plant at least one
good ear of corn each and culti
vate their crop this summer
When the crop is harvested
arrangements will be made tc
take the very best ears , to tin
National Corn Exposition a'
Omaha in December and tht
state corn show at Lincoln it
Not every boy who works foi
the state Superintendent will get
big pay for the work this yearbui
those who produce the best corn
will win prizes which will give
them gcod wages for the sum
mer's work and the pay of the
rest will come in the satisfac
tion of having grown better corn
than is produced on the average
in Nebraska or any other state.
As the prizes are many , it will
be a large number who will win
something , and all who contest
will get their names on the roll
