The Agricultural Inspector wishes to warn farmers against buying and planting noxious weed seeds. The State law specifies that: "Every lot of agriculture or vegetable seed offered for sale shall have affixed thereto in a conspicious place on the exterior of the container a plainly written or printed tag or label in the English language stating: (1) The commonly accepted name of such seed. (2) The percentage of purity. (3) The total percentage of, weed ael. (4) Name and number per lbs, of noxious weed seed. (5) Percentage of germination. (6) Place of origin of seed. (7) Name of vendor of seed. The State Board of Agriculture has a competent seed analyst, and this department will take samples of any seed and send it into the State anal yst for purity and germination tests for a very small cost. Farmers are urged to have their seed analysed btfore planting. Seed that may appear at sight to be perfectly clean, may under microscopic examination show several kinds of noxious weeds. The following timely warning is from an aiticle by Professor J. C. Hogensen, Extension Agronomist, U. C: 'Utah farmers have S. A. been fighting weods for a long time, and yet the noxious weed patches continue to increase! in both size and number. The reason for this lies in the fact that farmers have not taken the weed problem seriously. They have begun to fight too late, or after the weeds have appeared on the farm. The time and place to begin to fight weeds ts at planting time and with the seed that is planted. Many farmers plant more weed seeds with taeJr crops than they can possibly through their weed killing pro cesses. The best way to kill weeds In not to plant them. If small patches have appeared on the farm, kill them now, before these patches become lareer. A day spent now in killing a small patch of weeds will save months of arduous labor in future years when teat patch has spread over the farm dei-str- i by LANNY ROSS I was raised in the brilliant glow of footlights. Mother was a pianist and Father a Shakespearean actor. Nevertheless, despite this auspicious start toward fame in the theatre, I had no thought of being a trouper. I wanted to be a lawyer. Of course, before I could talk, I was unable to defend myself. As a result, I appeared on the stage as in my father's a baby, carried arms. I played several children's roles, and everyone came to expect big things of me some day in the theatrical world. However, even as a youngster 1 worried under the high tension of theatre life. It was I for a quieter kind of existence. Still I wanted to be in the thick of events. The practice of law seemed the logical out for this desire. Grammar school, strangely enough, was never irksome. Every week, I commuted to New York City to sing in the choir of St. John the Divine Cathedral. At fourteen, I was a boy soprano soloist. Singing was great sport, but at the time I couldn't see making a life's work of it. In time I gained a scholarship at the Taft School in Connecti"!:, and spent four years there preparing for Yale. I was active in the Cke Club, and ran on the track team. Then Yale awarded nie a scholarship. During my freshman vir there I made the Glee Club a? v, !' as the track team. As an urpere'a-maI became a soloist and hoai the choral organization. Meanwhile I was active in athletics, and ir.r: to hang up a collegiate rccor-d in the dash. But in UCS upon graduation, I gave up a chan e enter the Olympics, so thnt 1 jto .could go to Europe with the Club. In my senior year at Yale. I commuted once a week to Xcw Yoi'. to appear in a male quartet on a comt mercial radio program. It w i experience at the micro-- . ihonc and I must say I liked it. After leaving New Haven, I pur-- i sued my law cou. se at Columbia University. Three years later. I was admitted to the bar of the State of New York. About this time I realized that lawyers' fees were small, at least at first: thnt I 'Jtill enjoyed sinking, and that a career as a vocalist might be more n 1 1 440-yar- .

A weed seed implanted or a weed plant killed now, will prevent thou sands from growing later on. Every weed plant that is allowed to mature on the farm produces at least 20,000 seeds which will grow into plants and produce seed next year. Plan and act now, next year it will mean much more work and will cost much more. It may be too late. They may get beyond control." The State Department of Agricul ture and the Crop Improvement As sociation will not guarantee- any cer tified seed which does not have the tag on and the seal unbroken at the time of salo to the grower. Growers are also warned against buying Southern seed, That is seed grown in Arizona, Texas, South America and other warm climates. Kxperience has shown that such setd does not do well in this climate. For additional information see the County Agricultural Agent or the Dis trict Agricultural Inspector. R. L. RIGBY, Dist Agrt.
