They are a cool weather crop, and do best in sections here spring comes so early there is time for them to mature before hot weather arrives; or in the northern tier of states where summers are relatively cool. Everywhere the first sowing of peas should be made early as possible, having in mind that the finer varieties, which have wrinkled seed, may decay if the soil remains cold and damp too long after they are sown. Smooth seeded peas will not decay so easily, but they are not of as high quality as the wrinkled kinds. " Where spring comes late and summer sum-mer follows quickly, only one crop of peas is likely to De successful, and for this an early dwarf variety should be grown under the most favorable conditions. la new gardens, or old Uranium Can Be Converted Into More Than 70 Elements LOS ANGELES.

Tbt r reaction was described at a fleeting of American Physical so- jieiy Dy ur. oienn i. oeauurg, university uni-versity of California nuclear chemist chem-ist and co-discoverer of plutonium. Dr. Seaborg said he was able to create more than two-thirds of all known elements by bombarding uranium . with . particles of other atoms at an energy of 400 million electron volts. At lower energies, he said, the uranium split Into just two or three other elements. Some of the new elements were formed by splitting the uranium atom into two other atoms. Others were formed by chipping off as many as 30 small particles, leaving a large core of a new element The uranium atom splits in so short a fraction of a second, Dr. Seaborg said, that it takes a one over 10 with 15 zeros following to represent it.

Plant food should be applied at the rate of 4 pounds to 100 feet of row, either mixed well with the soil before sow ing, or spread in trenches on either side of the row, a little deeper than the seed are sown. The seed should be covered 1 to 2 inches deep. In sections where weather concflV Hons are favorable to peas, it is pos sible to grow them in twin rows six inches apart; in the space between the rows the weeds are pulled, but the soil is not cultivated.
