Dr. H. Stonaker reports that .the calf crop; without culling would have been around 76%. This is just about average under range con di,tions.

Spring Flowering Bulbs Now is :the time ,to be planting Spring Flowering bulbs. Most bulbs can be planted up to freez- ing time. Spring-flowering bulbs bring color to your garden at a time When few other plants are in bloom. Spring-flowering bulbs include daffodils, tulips, hyacinths, bulb iris, and crocuses. Some ,tha~ are smaller and not so wel~ known are scillas, glory-of-the-snow, graps ~hyaein~hs, and snawdrops. SELECTING BULBS: Know type, colors and sizes of bulbs, and :the places they grow best. Choose either domestic or tin. ported bulbs. 2~hey are equally good. Make sure bulbs are not diseased. Diseased bulbs look moldy, discolored, or soft and rotted. Buy from a dealer who sells good bulbs. Cheap bulbs usually are of poor quality. Buy the specific colors or varie- ies you want. Inexpensive pack- ~ged mixtures oRen contain too many of one color. Ask for Bul- letin 493 "Spring-Flowering ~ulbs" ,at the County Extension office for more informa,tion.

If you are one of .these, here's a tip ,that might help . . . The obvious an- swer to the problem is ,to start early and save regularly. But a leaflet by the Treasury Department has this further idea; Buy Savings Bonds issued in the name of your child, Wi.th your- self or wife named as beneficiary --not co-owner. That moves the Federal income tax liability ,to the child. Bu,t if the accumulated interest (plus other income) does not exceed $900 in any one year, he will o,we no tax at all. Or if you choose, ~'he tax liabiliy may be deferred until ,the bonds are cashed. The bond owner has this choice.
