(WEEKLY s< e he personally owns. Last year the land he planted to Elbon rye was sown with certiiied seed, insuring a good quality of seed for market this year. He plans ti, put in 150 acres this year to a combination of Elbon, oats and vetch for pasture, and will also plant twenty acres to harvest for seed. Theimer has reclaimed ’~'jch of the land in his possession from j river bottom undergrowth, and also has done some backfill work where floods have pitted the land or where the drains come down from the hills. He sows Elbon rye during the latter part of August and the first of September in order to get an ! early fall pasture. “The amount of seed per acre depends on the soil,” he said. “The heavier the soil, the more seed a man should put down. I'd say anywhere from fifty to ninety pounds of s._d per acre, depending on the land’s ab “ty to furnish growth.” Underground River Theimer says his ri’ T bottom farm has a good w'ater level. He I has three wells for irrigation if he needs to irrigate. The u'ells are under water now—a pool 210 feet long, three hundred yards from the river shore. He says he figures the w'ells are tapped into a prehistoric] underground river. The w'ells’ reach down 47 feet, and Theimer says be can pump 1.000 gallons of water per minute. After a five or six hours run at that capacity, he says the long pool lowers until th* w'ells are visible, showing] how the water table drops with' steady pumping.
