EXPLAINS HOW MORE MAY ENJOY SWEET CORN DELICACY AT ITS BEST [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 1 May 1929

EXPLAINS HOW MORE MAY ENJOY SWEET CORN DELICACY AT ITS BEST Relatively few people have ever tasted sweet corn at its best , despite the - fact that this is one of the most popular vegetables , according to Lee A . Somers , of the horticulture . department , College of Agriculture , University- of Illinois . To be at its best , sweet corn must be harvested at just the right degree of maturity and that period extends over only one or two days , he explained . Furthermore , just as soon as the corn is harvested a rapid chemical reaction sets in with the result that corn harvested more than 24 hours has lost most of its sweetness . The home gardener can , by careful planning provide his . table-with the highest quality sweet corn from midJuly until the fall frosts . There are two ways in which he niay do this . He may take any variety of -which he is particularly fond and make weekly plantings of small blocks of this variety . In central : Illinois the first plantings will be made about...

NECESSARY TO "FEED " SOIL GERMS IN ORDER TO "FEED" SOIL CROPS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 1 May 1929

NECESSARY TO FEED SOIL GERMS IN ORDER TO FEED SOIL CROPS A spring tonic is no longer a human necessity . . Improved • living conditions have eliminated such a need . Naturally the invisible living things of the soil likewise are affected by their conditions of life . Fortunately , with one or two exceptions , the-farmer need not be concerned about adding the right kind of bacteria to his soil to get the best results—they are there already . Rather his risk is to create conditions in the sotl which will stimulate the growth of the beneficial micro-organisms and which will be unfavorable for the activity of those that are harmful . Two of the conditions which are important for many of the benefijial germs are fresh air and a warm soil . Good drainage is an aid in securing both of these and thus helpsthe crop : on the land I : s t I J ; by improving soil conditions . This in turn favors the development of bacteria . . • The use of limestone also aids in creating a healthy place for soi...

Great Care Needed in Building Roofs [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 1 May 1929

Great Care Needed in Building Roofs Roofs made of overlapping units , such as shingles , slates and tiles , the form of roof used most commonly in home building , invite leaks and disaster when they are slapped on in any old way , and there will come a time when you will positively want to do violence If you use just any old quality of these units . They make sound roofs if they are made right ; good felt , good asphalt , good wood—cut and preserved as it should be—made by science and not by guess . If they are of proper materials and put on skillfully the wind will not blow them off They will not curl or crack and let water down through the ceilings . Let us stop our roof leaks before they happen by not taking a chance with questionable materials or poor workmanship . Buy roofing on the basis of reputation for service .

Vacuum Tubes Likely to Become Paralyzed [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 1 May 1929

Vacuum Tubes Likely to Become Paralyzed _ L ^^^ » SSS ____ 5 S 5 B 5 ^ B ^^ H IVilli f II Presentrday vacuum tubes , for the most * part , have so-called thoriated tungsten filaments , the action of which , evenat this late date , is not fully appreciated by the average listener . The electronic emission of such a filament depends upon the presence of a layer of thorium atoms on the outer surface , of the filament . Unlike the oxide-coated filaments found in some tubes ,. the thoriated tungsten filament is not merely coated but permeated throughout its entire mass with the rare element thorium . During the normal operation of such a filament , the thorium on the outer surface is gradually . evaporated , reducing the emission current and , if this action is permitted to continue , rendering the tube short-lived . However , while the heat of the filament serves to evaporate the thorium particles on the sur face , it is also boiling fresh thorium particles out of the mass and up to the...
