In pcs Kern Castalia Stock buyer on a first degree murder charge in connection with the de Atli of Charles and Irene Van Brocklin near Castalia on december 11, 1921, was affirmed by the supreme court today. The majority opinion written by Justice molding held that Tho defendant s second trial in Floyd county had been fair and the evidence fully warranted a conviction.

Kerr will shortly move into town and occupy the mrs. F. L. Rathbun residence Postville High school agricultural notes during the past week one. Of the boys in the class brought in a few ears of seed Corn showing signs of Mold. Most of this Corn had been selected from the Field before the first heavy Frost or immediately after Wai is and had been stored in a desirable place for curing but upon investigation the other members of the class found this same condition existing in the majority of cases with the seed Corn stored at their Homes. Upon examining the Corn it was found to be a Black coloured Mold attacking both the cob and the Kernel. With the use of the magnifying Glass a number of the ears showed this Mold to be in the advanced stage while in some cases it was Only Light with no outside damage to the Kernel. The class has selected a number of the lightly infected ears which they intend to dry out thoroughly and test thereby finding what the germination percentage will be. The results will be published at that time. This Mold has been brought about through the great amount of rain this fall and the tight fitting husks which prevented the oars from drying out properly. The class made a trip to the Home of Harold Groth with the intention of picking enough seed Corn for his Corn project we found that ears entirely free from the effects of the Mold were at a Premium and Harold reports that out of three or four bushels selected few were found entirely free from the disease. The class has come to the conclusion that the seed Corn selected so far will have to be properly cared for and at Tho Best it looks As though the Supply of sound seed Corn is Likely to be a veal problem for the Farmer to solve next Spring. A number of speeches have been made by members before the class one speech was concerning the successful growing of Alfalfa and Sweet Clover in the Corn Belt Given by Kenneth Schultz the three Points which be stressed most were inoculation a clarifying and Liming. He said that these Points should be fully considered before seeding a i of of Alfalfa or Sweet Clover. In order to see the result of inoculation the class made a trip to the August Schultz farm where an Alfalfa Field had been seeded last Spring about one third of which was and the other two Thiol was not in inoculated. A great difference was noted the inoculated portion showing much better. Kenneth stated that both pieces wore limed alike but in order to satisfy our curiosity a number of samples Over the Field were tested showing the soil free from acid while the adjacent Corn Field showed Lime requirement. Another very interesting talk was Given by Milo Gericke on the need of Lime on Corn and he stated that Corn could be grown quite successfully of acid soil while legumes especially Alfalfa and Sweet Clover could not be grown with any degree of Success without first meeting the Lime requirement. Donald Rathbun explained the use of fertilizer to the Corn crop. He stated that phosphorous was the most essential fertilizer to the Corn crop and that h e believed it would be a Good thing for some boy in the class carrying a Corn project to test put the possibilities of phosphorous fertilizer on a Small scale.
