HAIL DAMAGES CORN WORST AFTER PLANTS COMMENCE TO SILK [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 24 July 1929
HAIL DAMAGES CORN WORST AFTER PLANTS COMMENCE TO SILK Hail storms , which damage corn more than any other crop in Illinois , are to bo feared most when they hit the corn plants at the time they are beginning to silk . Evidence of this has been secured in artificial hail storms inflicted upon corn plants by experiment station workers of the College of Agriculture , University of Illinois . Insurance companies have formulated apparently accurate methods for estimating damage to corn by hail . These methods tire based upon scientific reasoning and some of them have ben arrived at through experimentation . The experiment station studies , which have been under way since 1925 , were undertaken to increase the accuracy of estimating losses . Hand shears were used by the experiment station workers in producing artificial hail damjage . Definite percentages of the leaf area were removed at different stages in the plant s development . This was done by taking out whole blades , by cutting ou...
SIMPLE GRAVEL TEST AVOIDS FAILURES WITH MUCH CONCRETE WORK [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 24 July 1929
SIMPLE GRAVEL TEST AVOIDS FAILURES WITH MUCH CONCRETE WORK Not all gravel is fit for concrete work which Illinois farmers may be planning to do , but fortunately it takes only a sim ple test to find out , according to the farm mechanics department . College of Agriculture , University of Illinois . To make the test , two inches of the gravel are placed in a quart fruit jar or milk bottle and water then added until the jar or bottle is threefourths full . The mixture is shaken vigorously for one minute , the last fewshakes being sidewise to level off the material . The jar on bottle is then left to stand for an hour for the silt to settle . ] f the layer of silt above the material is one-eighth of an inch or more thick , the gravel will be unsuitable for concrete work unless the silt is removed by washing . Usually the cost of washing on the farm is more expensive than clean gravel from some other source , according to Albrecht . It is important that gravel be free from foreign mater...
CONCRETE MIXING METHODS CHANGED BY NEW FINDINGS [Newspaper Article] — Farmers' Weekly Review — 24 July 1929
CONCRETE MIXING METHODS CHANGED BY NEW FINDINGS Concrete mixing methods have been changed by recent discoveries which show that for given materials and conditions of handling , strength of concrete depends upon the amount V &gt; £ water used with each sack of cement , according to word being sent out to Illinois farmers by D . A . Albrecht , of the farm mechanics department , College of Agriculture , University of Illinois . Hence the important thing in farm concrete work is the proportion of water to cement and not the proportion of sand and gravel to cement , as was formerly the rule , he said . The rule now is that as long as the mixture is plastic ami workable , the strength of the resulting concrete will depend solely upon the ratio of thevolume of mixing water to the volume of cement . Such being the case , the first thing is to determine the strength of the concrete necessary for the use to which it is to be put . The amount of water to be used with , each sack of cem...

IMPROPER USE OF TOOLS HARD ON TEMPERS AND AND ALSO WRENCHES A long list of evils from round nuts to lost tempers can be charged up against the improper use of wrenches around farm tools , according to D . A . Milligan , of the farm mechanics department , College of Agriculture , University of Illinois . The toll includes stripped threads , broken wrenches and skinned hands , along with round nuts and lost tempers . Broken and sprung jaws on end wrenches and broken and rounded sockets on socket wrenches are the result of using wrenches that are too large for the nut . End wrenches should never be used with stretched or sprung jaws . They may be repaired by heating in the fire to a cherry red and closing over a nut of the size that fits tho wrench . Broken crescent wrenches and monkey wrenches are caused by using them in the wrong dilution . The handles of such wrenches should always be turned in the direction of the movable jaw .
