Seed Corn Trains
Conflict in Places
In making up the schedules for tS run
ning of the seed corn specials, the Union
Pacific and Burlington officials hav dis
covered that there are a few Junction
points where th lecturer on both trains
hsve been billed for addresses on corn
planting and corn culture. While no im
portant changes will be made In the run
ning of any ot the trains, the schedules
will be so arranged that there will be no
conflict In the lecture program.
Officials of the two roads that have
taken the initiative In the seed corn sp
cisl li-a through Nebraska are of the
opinion that too much information con
cerning seed corn, lis planting and the
subsequent cultivation cannot be scat
tered broadcast. However, they agree that
It la not fslr to other localities and con
sequently will perfect change so that
during th limited time th train are
out only on course of lecture will b
delivered In a town.
