Haugen Farm Relief Bill, creating a Federal farm board, passed the Senate. The purpose of the board is to "handle the marketing and dis- posal of basic agricultural commodi- ties. It would establish a revolving fund of $250,000,000 from which loans may be made to cooperative organization, and provides fpr the levying of an equalization fee to re- imburse the government. Secretary Mellon has estimated that the admin- istlative provisions of this measure would cost about $800,000 a year not including the many other costs that would be connected with it. It is generally thought that the president will veto this bill. STOP SMUT By treating seed oats for smut the prospects for a good crop are greatly enhanced. An easy an<t effective method of seed treatment i to sprin- kle the seed oat with a solution i madJe by adding 1 pound of form- aldehyde to 40 gallons of water. After the smut balls and trash have been removed by fanning the seed hould be spread on a clean floor; thoroughly sprinkled and hovele(t over until all of the grain is .well moitened. It should then be covered with blankets or canvas and allowed ire stand for several hours. It can then be sown at once or spread out in i a clean place to dry. The seed will run through the drill much more readily if dried before seeding.
