23 Oct. 8. 1949 Mason City Globe-Gazette, Mason c'.ly, lu. Explains Role of Soybean on Nation's Life Pogeler Addresses Lions Club Meeting The role of the soybean in the nation's agricultural economy was described to the Mason City • Lions club Wednesday noon by Glenn Pogeler, manager of the Worth Iowa Co-Op Processing association at Manly. Although the crop had been introduced some time before, soybeans, he said, can be describee as a "wartime baby." Prompted by a need for fats and oils, th government gave substantial en ouragement to their culture' tirough subsidization. With the tapering off of this government program, the Manly peaker observed, the soybean ndustry has entered a really competitive phase, with the capacity of the nation's processing plants veil in excess of the total pro- luction Iowa Second to Illinois Iowa, ranking 2nd to Illinois in total production, grew a total of 34 million bushels of soybeans last year while this year's crop is expected to approximate 26 million. Part of this is explained by the 15 per cent reduction in acreage this year. A wide band of land extending from Iowa's northwestern corner to the southeastern corner grows most of the state's soybeans. Because of a belief that the crop invites soil erosion—an assumption which is debatable, according to Mr. Pogeler—soybeans generally are not grown on rough ground. Some of the "1,000 and 1" uses o which soybeans have been put were mentioned by the speaker, in connection with his explanation of he 2 principal methods of all extraction. "Squeezing" Method Used In the Manly plant, which is one of Iowa's 35 establishments of its kind, the "expulsion" or squeezing" method is used. In other plants solvents are employed. Most of the oil ends up in food stuffs—shortening, salad oils, margarine, etc., although it is coining into increased use for plastics and paints. Mr. Pogeler praised the efforts of Iowa State college in developing new breeds of soybean specially suited for this state's soil. Beans grown in this particular area are, he admitted, a little deficient in oil content. The disposition oC growers to Treat yourself to flavor and nutrition at its best! «"•<•> *"«<B> '/ l^fti* This Is Cheese Festival Month ^OCEJ, *CHtts» Many ways to serve cheese . . .

DISTRIBUTORS hold their croos in storage instead of dumping them on the market at harvest time was cited by Mr. Pogeler as a gratifying development. It makes for stability in the industry and larger profits for the growers, he said. Similar to Corn on Soil In answer to a question, he expressed the view that the effect on soil is substantially the same as corn's effect, certainly no more depleting. Preceding the principal talk, Lee Sanders reported on tickel sales for the Phil Spitalny concert at Roosevelt fieldhouse on the night of Tuesday, Oct. 11, sponsored jointly by the Lions club and B. & P.

New Approach to Decontrol of Rent Given Ending of rent control in a community on the initiative oC the national housing expediter need not be expected until he is assured there exists a ration of supply and demand in housing that gives tenants an opportunity to exercise normal ability to bargain for shelter, in price ranges consistent with heir monthly income. This was the statement Wednesday of E. Stewart Uirich, area rent director, as he announced a new npproach by the office of the lousing expediter, to the question of rent decontrol actions by the lousing expediter. Law Gives One Standard "The federal rent law gives the | neighboring city veys made by the office of the housing expediter in all cities of 25,000 or less are brought up to dnte, with u view to determining if such cities are now ready for decontrol Lists Modifying Factors The plan is to order decontrol in cities of that population range, unless onu or more of G factors are present. These modifying factors are: 1. An active military installation. 2. An industrial boom resulting in a recent and significant influx of population. 3. An unusual population growth (more than 25 per cent) since 1940. 4. A college or university town having serious trouble housing its students. 5. The small town is part of the housing market of a very large Undergoes Operation Bristow — Henry Folkcrts of Phoenix, Ariz., son of Mrs. Atho Folkerls of Bristow, is a patient at the St. Vincent hospital at Los Angeles, Cal., where he submitted to a 3rd operation for detached retina of the eye. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Folkerts formerly resided at Bristow where Mr. Folkerts ALWAYS operated a garage several years ago. Mrs. Atho Folkerts and Hattie plan to spend the winter with their son and brother at Phoenix. Plan Carnival Meservey—The Meservey school carnival will be held Friday ning, Oct. ,14. housing expediter only one standard of decontrol, and that is he must be assured the demand for housing in a community shall have been reasonably met," said the rent official. "His interpretation of 'reasonably' means free bargaining with- ranges tenants can af- m price ford." Uirich 6. Some peculiar problem of an individual community. The rent official pointed out that the housing expediter may recontrol a community in which he has ended rent control, if rents rise exorbitantly. However, there is no way of decontrolling under the law if a city or state exercises its local option authority to said that housing sur- i effect decontrol. FULL-WEIGHT PACKAGES POUND.
