found in 1922 Many inquiries are being received from farmers located in 30 counties which have not yet started the work asking when the test will be started In nearly all of these counties it will be necessary for the board of super visors to make a tax levy not to ex ceed three mills in any one year If such a levy is made this fall it will j be collected in the spring and fall of 1930 and the
