Costs more per gallon, less per mile. All Dixie stations sell it. Arthur fLutz, Saline, is the 1928 champion corn grower of Michigan by virtue oi producing a crop which yielded 112 bushels of shelled corn to the acre m the 5-acre growing con- test conducted by the farm crops department of "Michigan State college, in which the winners were announced Farmers Week. Six other Michigan farmers grew crops which were in the coveted 109 bushel class. The state is divided into three regions in this contest so that the competitors in each area have similar climatic conditions ■ to contend with. Leaders in each region receive medals from, the college and those who make the highest profit per acre get prizes, given, by com. me'fcial companies. In addition to securing the greatest yield, Mr. fLutz made the most money per acre from his crop. Bis profits were $71.37 per acre. This profit is "based on the price of corn December 1. The average cost of production for the 42 growers who were in the contest was §12.65, Only three of the contestants did not use commercial fertilizer or barnyard manure in the production of their crops. Most of them planted the corn on an alfalfa or sweet clover sod. The best profit for each region were secured by Arthur Lutz, Saline; Ros- coe Master, Waidron; Leland Bush, Britton; .Rheo Welling, Waidron, for region 1; George Kohn, Fenwick; F. A., Smith, Mulliken and Milton Shear, Flushing; and Lee Ferden, Chesaning, region 2; B. W. Grandall, Bellaire; George Rae, Bay City; C. E. Garner, Six Lakes, and Henry Hehricksen, Shelby, region 3.

At the time of the coal shortage a few years ago, corn belt farmers found it more economical to burn corn than coal, but dairy specialists at "Michigan State; college say that, at present prices, it costs eight times as much to, heat vfc ter for cows with feed as it does with coal. » . A plentiful supply of drinking water is essential if cows are to produce large quantities of milk. All of this water is", hej-^ed to body temperature after^'theSBOws drink it, and this heating musfiOe done by the fuel within the animal's body, her feed. The only way to *iave this waste of grain is to heat tli§ water before the cow drinks it. _ ; Automatic watering systems which supply clean, warm water for the cow all of the timCwhen she. is in her stall' are ideal fop winter dairying, but, when; .this system is impossible, the supply tank | from which cows drink should "be ' equipped with a heater which will'""take the chill off the drinking water.; The water which the cow drinks assists to convey her food through tli2 digestive" systeiB^j^aintains vitality, and health, and aids in the efficient production of milk. Insufficient supplies of water" affect all of these bodily functions, and the cow which is forced to drink ice cold water drinks as little as possible. The average cow produces only 15 pounds of milk daily but she drinks 50 pounds of water each day. Tc j heat this water to body temperature will require from two to three cents worth of feed. High producing'eows , may drink as much as 100 pounds of j water daily and the cost of heating this water with feed will be propor-4 tionately higher. Enjoy Splendid Program and Elect* Officers for Ensuing Year. The Washtenaw" County Holstein Breeders Association met in annual meeting in the Masonic club ro'oms ori. Tuesday evening of last week. A chicken dinner was served by members of the Eastern Stars, all of whom were dressed in black and white. Table decorations were of the same colors. The program was opened with a vocal selection by the Blue Ribbon Calf Club boys. Dean Gordon, who was sent to Memphis, Tennessee, last summer by the association, gave a splendid description of his trip. Selection by the male quartet of the Federated church followed and a cornet solo was given by George Austin. A playlet, "Economical Boomerang," was' presented by Mr. and Mrs. James Hayes, Mrs .William Austin, Mrs. B. F. Tyler, Reuben Rogers and John Hartman, Jr. The following officers were elected for the ensuing year. President—William Austin. Vice President—James L^tson. Secretary and Treasurer—Mark Lathers. CASSOPOIS EDITOR ASP1R- ^AfNT FOR AG BOARD POST William H. Berkey Projected Into Campaign by Host of Friends In State. SALINE DEFEATS MANCHESTER.! Manchester, February 1 I After handing Dexter a 49-10 defeat a week ago Tuesday,- the boys found themselves .Friday night 'again and overcame Manchester by a 28 to 8 count. In the Dexter fracas Bill Carr was high point man, tossing in eight field goals for 16 points. Captain Estermyer was next with seven. The Reserves also played the Dexter junior aggregation, coming out on top by a score of 31-15. Frankie Jordan was Saline's star, collecting a grand total of 13 points. (Bill Carr's only rival.) In the Manchester .affair Friday night Bill Carr was again high point man, garnering 14. Jack Probyn was the only man on the team to play the entire game. He was celebrating his last appearance in a purple suit becuse of the fact that he has been in high school for nine semesters and this one will render him ineligible, according to the M. -I. A. A. Floyde Carr probably will take his place. George McTaggart, a candidate for the position vacated by Jack Probyn, has also been declared ineligible. This was George's first year out for practice and he was a promising candidate until this setback occurred. He will undoubtedly help . George Martin at the guard posts next year. William H. Berkey of Cass county, publisher of the Vigilant at Cass- opolis, will be a candidate for membership on the State Board of Agriculture at the Republican convention, which is scheduled to convene in" Lansing on Wednesday, February 20. Editor , Berkey's candidacy was not of his own choosing, his friends throughout, the* state being responsible for his hat being in the ring having assured him support from every section of Michigan. Mr. Berkey, who has retired as president of the Michigan Press Association, is not only a -publisher of unquestioned ability, but is well qualified to pass upon present day farm problems, being the owner of a large farm northeast of his home city. His candidacy is that to succeed Herbert Gowdy, of Berrien county, who voluntarily retires from the board at the end of his present term. It is conceded in political circles that Southwestern Michigan is entitled to a place on the board and state leaders freely predict that the Cass county publisher will have plenty of support on the floor of the convention.
