We are all aware An increase of from Sve to ten per cent in the wheat acreage is expected in various districts this year as seeding operations gather momentum throughout southern Al- berta. Seeding is already general in all except western areas, where it is rapidly getting underway and is expected to be in full swing with- in a few clays. According to agriculturists, eleva- tor agents and farmers, the increase in southern Alberta's wheat acre- age will be made by a slight re- duction in the acreage so-wn to coarse grains and by some stijb- bling-in of wheat where moisture conditions are promising. Generally speaking. however, fanners following the practise of But newspapers are today publish- ing more copies daily in Canada than ex-er in history and are doing so in the face of very strict ration- ing.

A larger acreage of mustard seed is also contemplated by farmers. Ihe acreage of winter wheat which Is now turning green and maVing steady growth is the largest grown In southern Alberta for a good many years and carae into the spring with good results except in cases where fields were sown late. Considerable damage has occurred in late sown fields, the wheat not having sufficient cover to with- stand the high winds this year. While seeding was general in most of southern Alberta at the begin- ning of last week, fanners in foot- hills areas have been delaying seed- ing operations in favor of working the land to kill weeds. During the keeping half their land in fallow i past few days, however, with the and half in crop are anxious to i land avoid disruoring their normal farm- to ing method and are planning seed about the usual acreage to wheat.

But we may have to change our minds if the dry winds keep on blowing." One large-scale farmer who has ea cropping half his land and fallowing the other half explained lie would seed two-thirds of his land to wheat this year and keep only a third in. fallow. 1 "Wheat looks like too good of a thing not to increase icy acreage this he added. CANXOT UPSET PROGRAM Other farmers, however, explain: j "We can't go ahead and upset our half-and-half program for the sake of this year and also taae the heaw risk -which, would canie in a dry year." The expected severe infestation by the wheat stem sawfly in many southern Alberta areas has also prompted many farmers to decide against stubbling-in -wheat. While nearly all stocks of feed grams disappeared during the hard on livestock, a reduction in the coarse grains acreage is ex- pected in many southern Alberta areas this year as more and more farmers are either going complete- ly out of hogs or are further cur- tailing those activities to give more attention to wheat. In other re- gions, hojvever, elevator agents an- ticipated the acreage sown to oats to be higher. 700 ACRES OATS One Barons district fanner Is planning to raise 700 acres of oats this year after getting "a notion" has been spending a few in the city Chrome Plated EXHAUST TAIL PIPE EXTENSIONS With Red Reflector MCLAUGHLIN GARAGE and Auto Wreckers DANCE TONIGHT EAGLES to 4 750x20 USED TIRES LIKE TO SELL Trimble's For Tires 31S Eleventh Street S.
