St. Giles-in-the-Fields

James McNeill Whistler

The south flank of a church is seen through the branches of leafless trees. A central tower over the entrance dominates the upper portion of the composition. In the foreground, a curving rail indicates a path leading up to the side of the building; seated just to the left of the church are several people seated on a park bench.

James McNeill Whistler

A stretch of water in the foreground and middle ground leads to a horizontal distant shore that is composed of a series of horizontal stepped recessions. The buildings on the far shore appear to be industrial buildings, with many smokestacks. At the bottom of the image are some lightly drawn boats.

"Son! Do You Know that Seed Corn Will Grow?" State Council of Defense (Illinois)

John T. McCutcheon

Text: State Council of Defense - (banner in eagle's mouth) State Sovereignty National Union - Cooperating with - The College of Agriculture, University of Illinois. The United States Department of Agriculture. The State Department of Agriculture - Illinois Seed Corn Administration - Advisory Committee - E.D. Funk, Chairman, Bloomington, Ill. H.J. Sconce, Sidell, Ill. John M. Crebs, Carmi, I--. Frank J. Frather, Williamsville, Ill. Chas. Adkins, Springfield, Ill. W.F. Handschin, University of Ill. - Seed Corn Administrator - WM. G. Eckhardt, 120 West Adams Street, Chicago, Ill. - "Son! Do You Know That Your Seed Corn Will Grow?" - Get Your Seed Corn Now - The seed corn situation is the worst in the history of the State. If wheat or oats fail, we can plant corn and grown a paying crop. When corn planting time comes you must have good seed, or fail. Hundreds of farmers have put away corn not a kernel of which will grow. Damp weather in October; immature corn; and early hard freezing has killed it. Test your seed corn. Know it will grow. Help yourself and help each other. Prepare the seed bed well. Don't plant corn too deep. Help yourself--don't depend upon others. - Corn Is Illinois' Greatest Crop - No greater mistake can be made by the farmers of the Corn Belt than to reduce materially the area in corn. The system of farming and the crops that you have proven good and most profitable for the past twenty years are those that should be followed and grown this year. If you are in need of seed corn, or if you have a surplus that might be used to help someone else, consult___________ - Prices For Corn - (price list) - Corn germinating 70-79% will be used only as a last resort, except in case of exceptionally desirable corn.
