8UBJECTS TO BE TREATED
Meeting Will Bo Known As First
Nebraska Conservation and State
It has been decided to hold a Ne
braska Conservation and State Devel
opment congress on Tuesday and
Wednesday , March 20 , In this city.
The subjects to bo treated arc :
"Conservation of Natural Resources , "
"Good lloads , " "Seed Corn. " "Prob
lems of North western Nebraska , "
"Public Health" and other kindred
BUbjects. ' '
Governor Slmllonberger has Issued
n call for the convention , during
which ho says :
"Tho benefits to be derived from
improved methods of cultivation , the
Improvement of our grasses nnd
grains and of the Hvo stock upon the
iarm are things which must bo
brought homo to every farmer. Our
dairy interests are over growing and
should ho fostered and encouraged as
one of the most Important sources of
our material wealth. Good roads
should bo built to enable the produc
ers of our products to reach the rail
road markets easily nnd quickly.
Practical and intelligent work up cm
our country roads can be made easily
possible If careful attention Is given
'to ' this matter by those who make our
laws and they who make nnd use the
roads. A great deal is being said
about the vnluo to be derived from
the Improvement of our Inland water
ways , but still greater benefit will
follow n systematic and thorough
Improvement of the roads over which
the farmer must transport his raw
material to market.
"There are problems of develop
ment and proper conservation of our
natural resources which confront the
people of western Nebraska that are
to be considered along entirely dif
ferent lines In the eastern portion of
our state. The representatives of the
different portions of our state should
meet in n state conference once a
year to consider these questions ant
come to mutually understand the
needs and requirements of each sec
tion and discuss those matters that
are essential to every portion of the
state and necessary to a realization or
all the possibilities of the future. It
would bo of vast benefit to us. if for
no other reason than it would open
the eyes of our people and the coun
try generally to the matchless oppor
tunities for the development of mater
ial prosperity and a representative
citizenship In Nebraska.
"With a firm belief that vital bene
fits would come to the neonlo of the
state by calling a convention of rep
resentative men from every county In
Nebraska , to meet at the capital city
of the commonwealth , to consider the
vast problems which I have brlelly
touched upon as essential to our
further advancement. I hereby pro
claim and call a convention to DC
hold at Lincoln , Neb. , March 29 and
30 , 1910 , to bo known as The First
Nebraska Conservation and State De
velopment congress , and earnestly re
quest the entire citizenship of the
state to co-operato In carrying out a
plan for this gathering , so that It may
result in making for the further de
velopment of all the natural resources
of our state and opportunities for
manufacture and Improved agri
culture as well. "

Unique Test of Seed Corn.
Besides testing corn to see If it
will grow and warning farmers of
the poor condition of seed corn this
year , the Commercial club of Omaha
has made a test which shows the re
sult of freezing corn which contains
a good deal of moisture. The result
shows that even some of the corn
standing in the fields , supposed to
bo the best seed corn Nebraska has
this year , may be worthless for seed.
Ten ears of corn were selected
which were shown by tests to be
strong. Every kernel tested had
good sprouts and u strong root sys
tem. A government expert at the
Omaha grain exchange tested them
to learn the moisture. It was less
than 1C per cent.
Then these ten good ears were
soaked for various lengths of tlmo
and after the water dried into the
corn they were again tested to find
out how much moisture they con
tained. Those soaked five horus had
22 per cent ; six hours 27 per cent ,
and eight hours 30 per cent. All
were put In a refrigerating plant
whor'o the nlr was 12 degres nbovo
After 70 hours' exposure the corn
was again tested. The ears of one
hundred kernels from which had 22
per cent moisture , only 28 germin
ated ; while hut 20 kernels in one
hundred from the ears with 27 per
cent moisture showed signs of life
and but 21 grains In one hundred
taken from the oars containing 31
per cent moisture sprouted.
This test shows that corn contain
ing more than 22 per cent moisture
cannot stand freezing for even a
short time without killing a largo
percentage of the kernels and mak
ing the ears worthless for seed.
Additional Vacation Granted.
Jack Best , the veteran trainer of
state university athletes , for whom a
fund is being raised to send him to his
old homo in England , has been grant
ed two additional months' vacation by
Chancellor Avery. According to the
custom of former years , Jack's vaca
tion consisted of but ono month dur

did not receive pay. Next summer he
will receive three months' vacation ,
two of which will be with full pay.
