Sure Control for Boxelder Bugs Reported There is now a sure means of chemical control for boxelder bugs which every year infest the homes, Marion E. Olson, county extension director, says. While boxelder bugs don't feed on anything in the house, they annoy folks by flying around lights and by crawling around spotting curtains. the house This year the bugs are here in even greater numbers. A few farsighted home owners are ready for them, having caulked up all small cracks and crevices around doors and windows where the bugs enter the house. "But most of us have forgotten about boxelder bugs until now and we don't have time to close the door on them," Mr. Olson said. For the latter folks, the chemical treatment is good news. Information received by Mr. Olson from Iowa State college states that chlordane used as a 5 per cent spray, made with either emulsi- fiable concentrate or with wetta- ble powder, will control boxelder bugs. Put it on the trunks of box- elder trees if the bugs are still concentrated there. If they started to scatter out, put the 5 per cent chlordane spray where the bugs are. Favorite resting places include tree trunks, sunny walls and the sidewalks. Mr. Olson said - that chlordane has a residual effect against box- elder bugs but its length depends on weather conditions. Rain seems to wash off the material complete- .y so you should be prepared to repeat the spraying several times. Tests of Good Farm Leases Are Suggested There are several tests of what makes a good farm lease, according to Marion E. Olson, county extension director. The acid test, he says, is whether or not the lease permits the farm to be operated at its maximum long-time profit. Most leases fail to meet this qualification, according to I. W. Arthur, extension economist at Iowa State college. Farm returns should be divided between landlord and tenant in the same proportion as each contributes to farm production. The lease should provide for keeping up the soil and for farm improvements. It encourages the use of the best farming practices known. Mr. Arthur says to have the lease in writing, haying the duties and responsibilities of both the landlord and tenant outlined in detail. The farming program outlined should fit both the farm and the tenant family. The length of lease is another important item, according to Olson and Arthur. They prefer the lease which continues on from year to year until etiher party gives notice in August that the contract will be terminated the following March. This plan has been found to be more satisfactory than a long-term contract. The year-to-year lease allows for changes in economic and agricultural conditions. It is more apt to FARM SALE I will dispose of my farm equipment at Public Auction on my farm, occupied by Charles Draeger, located one mile north, one mile west and one mile north of the Nora Springs school, on Thursday, Sept. 29 Sale Starts at 1 p. m.

When making up the farm lease, he overall rental deal must be cept in mind. It is impossible to ake up a single item or single pro- /ision in the farm lease and say xactly how it should be handled without considering how the other terns in the lease have been landled. For example, on a livestock hare lease where the land or the mprovements are poor or the arm is small the owner may furnish half of the machinery and equipment. On a quarter section vhere there is a heavy labor load n taking care of poultry or dairy lerds, the landlord might furnish a part of the equipment and may even pay for part of the hired abor. On the other hand the owner of a good 240-acre or half-sec- ion farm which is well equipped for handling beef cattle and hogs might not furnish any of the labor or any of the equipment which needs to be used on that farm.

In late trading selected issues showed signs of coming back but the recovery attempt didn't have much life. Most of the damage was done in the morning when a short burst of selling flattened prices.
