I GRAIN CONTAMINATION AT HARVEST IS SLIGHT On the basis of 1,114 saraplcs of ]newly combined or threshed grain taken by entomologists of the ag- ricultural Experiment Station at NDAC from all parts of North Dak ota during the harvest of 1957 and 1958 it appeals that contamination of grain in the swath or shock is ot minor importance. At least this was true for the years stuciied. The research was done by D. M Noetzel, assistant entomologist, and J. A. Callenbach, former station en- tomologist and now associate sta- tion director, as a phase of a larger study which included sampling of grains during the storage period. Information already obtained by the experiment station showed the storage period was the time when lbe most co, t:;mmahon cf grain occured, due mainly to bins and storage facilities that permitted on. trance by rodents, birds and m- sects. Mice were found to be the worst offenders accounting for con- tamination of grain during storage. In carrying on its study of newly l harvested grain, the experiment station found only 23 of the 1,114 samples collected had rodent or bird contamination. Only a limited number of threshed gram samples were included.

This will come about through the develop- ment of new and more effective drugs against bacterical infectim',:: and we hope, against viruses which are resLstant at present: in a better understanding of the causes of the degenerative diseases: in the de- velopme~t of mc~re effective met- hods of preventing and treatin~ mental disease; in the eradication of polio by immunization with a more effective vaccine: and further development in heart and vascular surgery. Millions in dollars and man-hours will be spent to solve the riddle of cancer. The prospects are bright that a break through will come during the next decade through a knowlege of normal and cancer cell chemistry, the role tt~at viruse.~" play in the development of cancer, the cancer producing subsiances tl~r,I ,v.ay be present in tobacco, ar, d tl~e dLccovery of chemicals which will destxoy cnncer cells but not harm norn~l cells. There is a good chance that the cause of one o]: the major mental illhesses will be disc,vered through intensive research in Ihc chemistry of "orain cle]l:~.

The next decade will show a fan- t~.slic growth in volunt-~ry health insurance, including coverage for the aged Yes. we can look rorwara to great progress in medicine dur- ing the sixties. In some of the samples takez1 from straight combined fields in- sect contamination was the only type identified. The North Dakota Agricultural experiment station has been car- rying on a research project to de- termine sources of food gram con- amination since 1957, with the aid of funds granted for this purpose by the National Institutes of Heal- th. Prevention of food grain con- tamination during the harvesting, storage and handling processes is necessary if farmers handling grain are to avoid federal pure food con- demnation. Federal food regulations relating to contaminated grain are now being enforced on interstate shipments and grains containing ex- cess bird or rodent tilth are sub- jeet to condemnatmn 4-H GROUPS BEING ORANI~ED FOR 1960 Four-H members in Burleigh County are getting organized for another big year of 4-H activity in 1960. the County Extension Office reported this week. At this time the club membership for the county totals 426. including old club groups that have reorgan- ized for the coming year. and new clubs that have just been started for the first time. This is the same number :,s where enrolled at the close of the 1958- 59 club year on September 30th. According to the county agent re-organization of local clubs i:~ now about 95 per cent complete. Indications are that there is a possibility of two new clubs being organized. Communities interested in forming new 4-H clubs should ge~ m touch with the Extension Office m Bis- marck, for information and assis- tance. The most important U.S.S. FRANKUN D.

It is recommended as a home garden variety and as a market garden crop. Its main features are }ts dwarf plant habit and its earliness. In announcing the new variety the Department of Horticulture de. scribed the plants o~ Mantador broccoli as "very dwarf and the loaves are very closely vet, giving a very compact appearance. Little wind injury is encountered as a result of the dwarf habit. The leaves are bluish-green. "The variety is very early ma- turing. The eenteral heads are gen- erall~ small with a medium-tex- tured bud. The variety produces a heavy crop of side shoots. It should bbe grown as a spring crop variety, and not as a fall crop variety. Its yields compare with those produc- ed by later maturing varieties, it has good quality and makes an ex- cello,at frozen product. The department of horticulture does not have seed available for general dWa'ibution. A limited amount is available for commer- cial increase. Gardeners should con- tact area seedsmen as they will have limited quantities available. --45-- Four jobs out of 10 in the U. S depend on farming. Between 1950 and 1958 the per- eentage of working wives rose faster among U. S. farm families than among city families or rural fam- ilies not living on farms.
