The official dates for the IpWa Centennial Fair have been set for August 23-30 Inclusive. Cost of the statewide centennial celebration at the fair will run well over a third of a million dollars, according to preliminary budgets announced by the state fair board. This will be in addition to the half million dollars which will be spent to restore the grounds and buildings. Ten of the major buildings which were used by the arniy for storage purposes will require extensive remodeling and reconditioning fair officials said. Some of these buildings were boarded up by the army, in some all the stanchions and fair equipment were removed, while in others concrete installations made by the army will have to be drilled out. A huge reconversion job will be required, but officials are optimistic as to being able to complete it by state fair time. Preliminary plans announced this week contemplate a host of features celebrating the state's 100th anniversary, in addition livestock shows, 4-H club contests, women's exposition, farm machinery exhibits, agricultural displays, and entertainment events. Plans are being drafted for numerous exhibits portraying Iowa life and customs of 100 years ago. with leading statewide organizations participating in assembling and presenting the centennial features.

Farmer* Muat Produc* Pood And Save Feed A half dozen old non-laying hens may not seem like too much of a problem on, the aver 1 ' age Kossutn county farm. But those hens are "feed watcrefs," and when you multiply the number of feed-wasting hens ort one farm by the hundreds 6f farms in the county and the thousands of farms in the State and nation the waste is terrific in terms of bushels of grain and pounds of mash. County Extension Director A. L. Brown said this week that the conservation of feed and the prevention of feed waste on the farm is one of the two big problems farmers face this year in supplying food to a starving world. He pointed out that farmers in this area are being depended upon to supply grains to other areas where supplies arc dangerously low. Grain also is needed for direct conversion into food. One of the first steps in the feed conservation program is to make sure none of the high moisture corn is allowed to spoil. The second step is to market culled animals — both livestock and poultry. Marketing culled livestock and poultry will cofiserve feed and will increase the meat supply. In cattle feeding, maximum Use should be made of roughage and pasture, with non-producing breeding stock receiving little or no grain. si ; , Hogs should be marketed at lighter weights to conserve food. It takes more grain and concentrate to put 100 pounds,of pork on a heavy hog than it does a light, one—and the heav&r they a;-e the more feed it takes. In the food production side of the picture, Kossuth'., county farmers should make every effort to meet the revised production goals for their farms. This means another year of top crop production.
