The 1969 Census was the first conducted primarib by mail, Vangsness explains. Prior cen- suses were taken b.y enumera- tors, and various estimatesin- dicate that earlier censuses missed two to three per cent of the farm operators. The 1969 Census attempted m secure responses from all farm operators with agricul- tural sales of over S2,500, but there may have been a fe oper- ator s who did noi re spend. Mi ss- ing a fe of thegenerall5 larger farms in the western columes m have resulted in overesti- mating the smaller farms. There also may have been a small duplication where the landlord and tenant both re- ported for the same f a r m, ii I C'"zen' I The Sidney Senior Citizens met Oct. 7 at the Moose flail, with Mxs.

"n Controlling Your Wild Fall is an ideal time to start controlling wild oats- this area'> most destructive weed. This troublesome pest causes more crop loss than all other eeds combined. Next spring, abom 40 per cent of the n'emen- dous 1971 wild oats crop will germinate in the badb' ilffested fields tmless control meaanres are taken, says Larry W. Mifich, weed specialist for the North Dakota State University Cooperative Extension Service. Why not begin your wild oat control program this fall? Eall application of Far-go and Ava- dex- the preemergence wild oats herbicides -- does an ex- cellent job of controlling wild oats the following growing sea- son. Research has shown that fall applications of these chem- icals are as good as spring.ap- plications and frequently thoy are better in controlling the weed, Dr. Mitich reports. Applsing Far-go and Avadex chemicals in the fall has many advantages. The work load is shifted from the spring to the fall. In a late spring, preemer- gence herbicides often are not applied because of a shortage o time. There is about a three week period in the fall-- from Oct. 15 to Nov. 7 -- in whichyouean apply chemicals, says Dr. Mifich.
