Principles Result In Discovery of
Hardier and Richer Varieties of
Plant Food
How the priniciples of heredity
may be used to great advantage in
practical farming was explained by
Prof. A. F. Shull in his lecture on
'Heredity and the Food Supply" yes-
terday afternoon.
When the world discovered some
years ago that more food than was
being produced was absolutely neces-
sary, there were only two things that
could be done. People could begin to
eat less or more food could be pro-
duced. Obviously the latter is more
poular. But if twice as much were
planted, then the labor of farming
would be doubled. Therefore it was
necessary to find out how two plants
could be produced from one seed.
This is being done by applying the
principles of heredity. to ordinary
When two varieties are crossed the
resulting hybrid is vigorous, but the
two original plants lose all their
strength if this inbreeding process is
continued. Every plant has certain
ideal qualities. The idea is to cross
varieties until two types are formed
which together have the ideal of the
species. Then these two are crossed,
thus gathering in one plant all the
desirable features. After this the
plant should be grown in an isolated
part of the farm where it can mix
with no other varieties. For example,
in wleat the most desirable qualities
are a large yield ,resistance to rust,
hardiness against cold winters, and
richness in protiens. Then if a type
having the first two qualities is cross-
ed with one embodying the other two
a perfect specimen should result.
This one should be crossed in the
future with others of its own kind.

Arraigned in Court on Manslaughter
Charge; Motorman toBe Arrested
on Same Count
N. Walter Buck, of Jackson, con-
ductor of the freight car which plow-
ed into the loaded passenger car last
Saturday night a mile and one-half
west of Jackson, was arraigned in
court this morning on charge of
manslaughter. He was released on
$1,000 bond. Charles Fisk, motor-
mnan, also of Jackson, is confined to
his home by injuries, but will be
taken into custody as soon as he is
able to be out. Buck was brought to

Inquest Friday Night
Coroner Leo J. Kennedy will con-
duct his inquest Friday night at 8
o'clock. The examination under di-
rection of Assistant Prosecuting At-
torney Leslie W. Lisle of Washtenaw
county will not be held until the first
of next week. Prosecutor Lisle is-
sued the following statement this
morning relative to his attitude in the
"I authorized the warrants for
Buck and Fisk because I believed
from the evidence thus far that they
were to blame," said the prosecutor.
"Of course, only the inquest and ex-
amination will tell whether I am
right, and if at that time I learn dif-
ferently the men will be released. It
seems to me that when the traffic is
as heavy on a single track line as it
is between Battle Creek and Detroit
on Saturday and Sunday, it is noth-
ing less than criminal negligence for
men in charge of their cars not to be
absolutely sure the track is clear be-
fore going ahead. It is not enough
for them to think the track is clear-
they should know. All the evidence
obtainable is to the effect that Buck,
conductor, and Fisk, motorman, did
not endeavor to make sure that the
second section had passed."
Dead Now Number 13
The number of dead was increased
to 13 last night by the death of Paul
Mdrkoski, a soldier of the 160th de-
pot brigade, Camp Custer canton-

men were sent back to Custer yes-
terday. Four were taken on stretch-
