Prospects at this early fctage were declared excellent for a good crop. Small grain seeding is nearly all completed, and in 'many; cases^ pats are already bd- ing up. • ".-.... Most farmers are waiting to plant corn, right now. Stored Corn in Danger At the same time, farmers Who have stored high moisture corn are going to have to work fast to prevent heavy loss.from Spoilage, farm leaders said here this week. Warm\weather and the germm.7 ation period are just ahead, and while the corn may look perfectly good, it is deteriorating rapidly- Tests of stored corn were made last week in this section of the state by AAA officials and much spoiled corn was found as a result, especially where corn has been packed tight in cribs. Field Corn Better A crib of 1,600 bushels on the farm bought by John Hellman of Bancroft this spring from an estate looked fine, but Andrew Fangman, owner of the corn, estimated that 50 per cent was spoiled. This is an example of the dangers for -those having stored corn. An estimated 15, tc; 20' percent of Kossuth corn was left to .dry in -the field during the. winter, and ;much<.has dried: out; cpnsidr erably. : "and'i5;in .p'rettysiaU'.con-i , ,. . that Jt; Aas: 20fpe£- cent • or \less -moisture Content,-') as- compared with stored'corn which has had as high as 30 .percent-pr more. . , :•...' , Watch Swine Diseases V Farmers in areas where svrane* erysipelas Has become a problem should have spring pigs on''in- fected farms vaccinated against this disease at once, county farm leaders also warn. The disease often resembles hog cholera, they said, and in cases where the correct diagnosis is not made,-, vaccination for one doesn't preve'nt the other. Veterinarians can usually tell the two apart, and where tliey are not sure can resort to laboratory diagnosis -to be sure.

Mayor Frank Kohlhaas, City Supt. C. U: Pollard, and City Attorney J, D. Lowe were special guests for the occasion. Joel Herbst, city councilman, introduced the visitors and speakers. Need for some type of planning is very evident in Algona, both Misbach and Lowe pointed out, emphasizing that such simple things as sewer connections, power extensions, building codes, street widening and surfacing are all items that become hit or miss without a definite program adr hered to from year to .year by all city councils, regardless of changes on the council.
