corn and soybeans that have proved successful for them in the past Kemp may be look ing after 50 75 or even 100 var ieties of corn in one 810 acre plot Also while most farmers will use only a couple of fertilizer rates for their entire farm Kemp may use as many as 200 rates on a single fouracre corn plot All this isnt because Kemp cant decide on a variety of I corn to use or make up his mind how much of what fertil izer is best for his fields Its just that as manager of the Northern Iowa Experimental Farm here Al is constantly faced with these situations These are not unusual ex amples Kemp maintains Multi ply them 10 or 20 times and you have the kind of program Kemp faces each year on the 100acre farm located just south of the Kanawha town limits I used to get confused by all the tests and different plots Kemp admits But now after working with them for so long it has become standard Kemp has been working around experimential farms for 30 years He started at the ex perimental farm at Conesville in 1935 Aside from years as a greenhouse technician at Iowa State and a couple of years in the service hes been at it ever since He took over the management the Northern Iowa Experi mental

there fore be appointed to a federal judgeship To support segregation in Mississippi during James P Colemans political career was merely a commonplace political platitude to support modera tion to exalt law and order and to counsel obedience to court decisions these must be re garded as deliberate acts ot conscience and devotion to prin ciple Civil rights groups have been critical of President
