Washington, D. C., March 21.—
Last bulletin gave forecasts of dis-
turbance to cross continent March 22
to 26, warm wave 21 to 25, cool
wave 24 to 28. This storm wave
was expected to be of more than av-
erage force with most rain in south-
ern sections. Temperatures of the
five days centering on the warm
wave were expected to average cold-
er than usual.
Next disturbance will reach Pa-
cific coast about March 28, cross Pa-
cific slope by close of 29, great cen-
tral valleys 30 to April 1, eastern
sections April 2. Warm wave will
cross Pacific slope about March 28,
great central valleys 30, eastern sec-
tions April 1. Cool wave will crosB
Pacific slope nbout March 31, great
central \alleys April 2. eastern sec-
tions April 4.
Immediately preceding this dis-
turbance a cold wave is expected
that will carry frosts further south
than usual and the warm wave fol-
lowing will cause higher tempera-
tures than usual. Cold weather will
continue through the first, week of
April and then temperatures will
rise more rapidly than the season
would Indicate, the last half of April
being much warmor than usual.
Next disturbance will reach Pa-
cific coast about April 3, cross Pa-
cific slope by close of 4, great cen-
tral valleys 5 to 7, eastern sections
8. Warm wave will cross Pacific
slope about April 3, great central
valleys .*. eastern sections 7. Cool
wave will cross Pacific slope about
March 6, great central valleys 8,
eastern sections 10.
Temperatures of this disturbance
will average lower than usual and
not much rainfall. The only Im-
portant feature will be the unusual-
ly cool weather. The month of April
will average warmer than usual in
the states and from about to a little
below normal in Canada.
Rainfall of April will be very
much scattered and uneven. From
Manhattan, Kansas, to Albany, New
York, in a wide strip, rainfall will
generally be above normal while a
few places in that strip will have a
deficiency in moisture. In most of
the cotton belt rainfall will be de-
ficient but near the Gulf coast and In
Cuba more than usual rain Is ex-
pected. For Canada the rainfall will
be much varied but generally below
the usual normal for April.
But nearly all northern sections
are well supplied with moisture as
the soil was generally wet when
frozen last fall. Spring wheat should;
be sown so as to mature by Sept.

I advise planters to put cotton on
low or flat land this year as a gen-
eral rule. This will not suit all
parts of the cotton belt but it will
be the best as a general rule. In
fact most parts of the cotton belt
would better plant and sow only such
crops as will mature early.
As I see the 1912 cropweather It
will go to extremes more than once.
