PAGE 4 THE OTHELLO OUTLOOK THURSDAY MAY 29,1952 !, 11 'i! !, Recent Rains Help Wheat What may be one of the biggest Adams county wheat crQps in history is be- ginning to head out in south- ern and western sectors of the county. Three recent rains total- ling about 1.09 inches in the Adams county area have helped the crop recover from a late-April frost, and" most farmers believe damages will be less than originally feared.

Moses Lake Ritzville be accurately deterntined un- til after harvest," County A- gent Bob Marlin pointed out this week. "'BUt OUr present stand of wheat is about as thick and healthy as :my wh(,:~t grown on a commercial scale could be. 'If favorable weather cori- ~mues, m~d if 'hidden" fro~ day~K~ge i:~ i]ot excossivp, ,'\d- am.~ com~iy m~:y v:ell brin;~ in a crop in excess of 10 million bushels this sunmler." The cou>iy's all-time record is 10,8~i3,000 bushels, harvested in 1946 wheu the average bor- der-to-border yield was 27,8 bushels. Normally the county cuts about 9!5 million bushels. More Acres Seeded Thi~ year's yield will be boosted by the addition of an estimated 8,000 acres under an- nual cropping with fertilizer. The PMA office reports 405,000 acres in crop this year as com- pared with a "normal" of a- bout 397,000 for the even.num- bered years. Despite the frosts, the de- partment of agricul~re has predicted an all-time record crop for the Pacific N~thwest. Nation-wide surveys showy pros- peels "fair" ~o "good" in the midwest and south, but "ex- ceptional" in the northwest. Still Some Frost Loss "We will still have some loss ~rom frost," County Agent Mar- ~in said this week after exten- sive field surveys throughout the county. "Damage was scattered over much of the area, though it ap- pears to have been most exten- sive in the Lind and Sandhills regions where low valleys wi~h big acreages were affected. "The worst field I could find was one south of Lind where frost damage could be estima- ted at about 70 per cent. Early wheat just starting to boot suf- fered the most. "As was the ease last year, the real frost damage may not become apparent until farmers start cutl~ing 'their grain.

STINEBAUGH FETED, :bought a couple of weeks Genlle Rains Fall As if mal:ing up for her mis- conduct in frosting up the county the nights of April 28 and 29, Mother Nature (with the rain-increasers doing their 'best to help) let loose gentle rains of half-an4nch each the nights of May 10 and 12, and produced another .10 of an inch recorded in Ritzville last /~{onday night. Another .07 fell during the day Tuesday. Combined with .46 of an inch rainfall the nights 'of May 10 and 12, the crop has recovered a great deal from the early frosts. These rains ,bolstered the frost-stricken crop immeasur- able. In ad&ition, Martin point- ed out, this year's frost in late April came a monih ,'arlier than last year's costly May 28- 30 frost which found easier prey in a more advanced crop. PAUL F.
