In other words, the new and old moisture should meet. A uniformly high level of misture favors maximum veg- etable growth.

Fa rmers Ca utioned Use Of Future Washington wheat growers weq'e advised today to think twice before selling futures contracts on 1965 wheat as price insurance. And growers still holding s hrt futures contracts on 1964 wheat were reminded it's about time t close them out. Karl Hobson, Was,hington State University's extension price specialist, issued these words of caution today. H.e outlines the faetors which prompted his words o[" warning as follows: Some Sold Shorl Some Washington farmers sold short last fall and winter on the Chicago Board of Trade fc, r whe,at price insurance on their 1964 crop. They all made big mmmy doing so unless lney closed out their futures contracts before the sharp price drop this spring. For exa, mple, some growers sold September 1964 wheat contracts at around $1.75 per bushel last fall. They could have closed out the contracts recently at around $1.47 for a profit of $1,373 on each con- cents per bnshel each bushel of their neighbors who hedge. tledging on the 1965 crop is much less likely off unless futures vance sharply froth levels. Situation Is Also, there is less seek price irsurace because there is price uncertainty. legislation on the ]965 crop is unlikely changed.

A turn of the spade will show whether 'the soil is dry or not. And when an irrigation is underway, .a bit of probing with the spade will show how far down the water lms pene- trated. A strip of lighter col- ored soil is a tnae to keep the water flowing. It shows the new moisture hasn't yet reached the old. One-inch irigation at a time is usually adequate. The amount of water .applied at - any one time, however, will depend ,on the soil type anti the number o days between irrigations. Sandy soils require less water at eac.h irrigation but more frequent applica- tions, Boat Owners Must Keep Pink Slip ttey, Mr. boatman!
