I make every effort to put maxi
i mum quality potatoes on- the
[market this season, believes
| Henry M. Covington, horticultu
!ral specialist for the State Col
lege Extension Service.
Careful ?harvesting, handling,
grading, and storing wjll pay
good dividends for all growers,
says Covington. He adds that
low grades and culls should be.
kept at home for cattie and hog
feed or sold for dehydration pur
poses. ? "
Since the market prefers me
dium-sized potatoes, the proper
time to dig is when the crop has
produced the highest yield of U.
S. No. 1 grade <1 3-4 to 3 1-2
Inches in diameter). This usually
takes about four months' grow
ing time. Late June plantings
should be left as long as pos
sible but dug before a killing
It's advisable, says Covington,
to dig no more in one day than
can be picked up and . housed
that same day.
As the potatoes are "scratched
out" of the ground, they should
be laid carefully on top of the
ridge and allowed to stay there
long enough for the soil to dry.
The potatoes should not be pit
ched or placed in heapro\Vs, but
should be handled at- all times
as if they were eggs.
The potatoes should be graded
in the fteld as they are put into
baskets. If the No. 2's are to be
saved, they should be placed in
Baskets should be filled to a
slightly bulged pack. When this
is done properly, the lid must be
bent considerably to fasten it. In
this way, the potatoes will not
shift around in the basket and
bruise when hauled to market.
A "slack-pack" will* cost the
grower . money.

Yes, foresight is better than hindsight it you make the right 1
move. Foresight gets you protection while hindsight only
reaps regrets. Play it wise and get your automobile insurance 3
before it is too late. A policy coveting fire, theft, collision and ?
liability will pay huge dividends in the long run.

YOU want a new car to be tops in
things like style and room and
comfort and power?
?and a thrill-packed fifteen min

these things in abundant measure.
So you ask us? how about money?
What does it cost to buy a Buick?
and to own one?
All right ? let us ask you some
Take first cost. Do you know that
Buick prices Mart down at a level
below what you'd pay for some
sixes? and that every Buick, on a
cents-per-pound basis, is a stand
Take operating coat. Do you know
that the bang you'll get from Buick's
Fireball power comes from a
valve-in-head engine ? recognized
by engineers as a thrifty saver
Do you know that owners of 1950
Buicks are writing us rave letters,
saying that this year's version is the
most economical Buick ever built?
Do you know that such comfort
features as coil springs on all four
wheels protect the car as well as

Do you know that Dynaflow* ?

when the owner of n Buick gets a

that Buicks command on a used

their long-run value T
So if you want a real run for your
money, better buy Buick. And the
