eptember Best Month
For Sowing Cover Crop
eptember is the best month of
year for sowing cover crops,
ording to E. C. Blair, extension
onomist at State college.
'lie winter legumes which have
1 soil-building value in this state,
s.aid, are crimson clover, vetch,
1 Austrian winter peas. The one
use depends largely upon soil
e and personal preference,
■rimson clover should be sown
the rate of 25 pounds to the
e while 20 pounds of vetch is
)Ugh for an acre. Thirty pounds
winter peas are needed to sow
/etch and winter p'C.as are better
light sandy soils, as they may
sown deeper than crimson clover
J therefore, will stand more
)Uth when coming up.
'rimson clover is excellent for
idy loams, clay loams, and clay
Is, but should not be sown when
: soil is unusually dry. Wait for
good season and sow the seed
To produce a satisfactory crop,
Blair continued, the soil in which
these legumes are to be grown
should be inoculated, cither natural
ly or artificially.
Blair also pointed out that soy
bean and cowpea hay should be
mown in September. Soybeans
should be cut as soon as the pods
begin to form, and cowpeas are
ready for mowing as soon as
blooming is well under way.
Allow the hay to wilt slightly in
the trough, then rake it into wind
rows. After a few hours, put it up
on a rack, either the tripod form
or poles with cross pieces at dif
ferent heights to provide ventila
If the stacks are made properly,
he continued, the hay may be left
out for a month or more and be
fairly well cured.
“Don’t wait too late to cut the
beans and peas,” he urged, “or you
will get beans or peas and straw
rather than hay.”

tfVASHINGTON, Sept. 9.—This is
■tLnctly the political off season m
arhingtou, fo.r most of the best
litical prophets and soothsayers
e hanging around the Presidential
ndidates or following their trail
rough the country. But there are
11 some who foregather at the
itional Press Club and some of
ese have lately 'been putting in
eir spare time figuring out the
ibinet changes which are due
ter the next presidential election.
If Mr. Roosevelt is reelected it is
e general belief in Washington
at one of the first of his Cabinet
embers to be changed will be

if her department. But a sane
niddle course is not pleasing either
o organized labor or to organized
mployers. She does not go the
vhole distance with either group.

Nobody has suggested for a mln-
ite the possible retirement of Hen
ry A. Wallace as Secretary of Agri
culture. He is regarded as trailing
^'ery close to the President in his
sutlook upon the farm problem, and
probably will be continued if the
President retains his office.
Some dopesters surmise that strong
pressure will be put upon Mr.

open for anybody to guess in. The
only thing that seems certain at
this stage is that if Mr. Landon
comes to the White House, John
D. N. Hamilton, Chairman of the
Republican National Committee, will
come into the Cabinet in some ca
pacity. If tradition is followed, he
will be Postmaster General.
Speculators along these lines are
in quite general agreement that the
man for Secretary of Agriculture is
Senator Lester J, Dickinson of
If Mr. Landon, assuming he be
comes President, follows the pre
cedent set by Mr. Roosevelt of
naming a woman to a Cabinet post,
the best ibet at this time would
seem to be Miss Natalie Couch, of
New York, probably the nearest to
being national leader of organized
Republican women. And she might
as well go to the Department of
Labor as anywhere else.
For Secretary of the Treasury,

Fpr Secretary of State the sug
gestion is offered that the Repub
lican best qualified for the job and
most likely to be eager to get it is
Senator Borah of Idaho. Foreign
relations arp fiia specialty and have
been for many ygfirs. For Secretary
of War this group the other night
hit iipon Col Henry Breekinridge,
whp was Assistant Secretary of
War in President Wilson's Cabinet.
Likewise, talk naturally centers up
on Col. Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., a
former Assistant Secretary of the
Navy, for the Navy portfolio.
Other Outside Gtaesses
The gossips also suggest that
some outstanding young business
man with a wide grasp of national
affairs should head th^ department
ol Commerce and lie^'-e the name of
Lewis Brawn, President of the
Jphns-Mariville ^rporation, is oft-
ene§t heard. Among other Cabinet
suggestions ;emanating from the
same circle are those of Henry J.
Allen of Kansas for Secretary of
the Interior and Charles P. Taft
for Attorney General.
It is nothing but 3,n amusing
game, but it serves to pass_ the
time on hot Washington evenings.
Not much water in the river, not
much news on the wire. But we ap
preciate what we have in each case.

Bird Observers Wanted
In the South and West
WANTED—More volunteer ob
servers of bird migration in the
South and West. Address United
States Biological Survey, Washing
ton, D. C.
The Survey reports it has plenty
of bird observers east of the Miss
issippi river and north of the Ohio
and Potomac rivers, ibut not enough
in the South and West. Persons in
these two regions interested in be
coming bird observers are requested
to write Biological Survey.
Bird-migration observers serve
without pay largely because they
find their work a fascinating hobby.
Some of them make a game of
keeping track of birds and especial
ly in noting the arrival and depar
ture of migratory species. In some
areas on important migration ri»utes
observers have listed more lhan 100
species daily. The' reports provide
facts that are particularly useful in
establishing regulations for hunting
