Algona Municipal Utilities DeKalb's for North Central Iowa Planting three DeKalb varieties is the sound way to spread the critical pollination period; to start harvest early and continue harvesting at the desired maturity; ^ nd i/ < ?i e< J pe with the uneertain * ie * of soil, season, diseases and insects. These three DeKalb hybiids offer the range of maturity and breeding to perform best in north central Iowa conditions. 1. DEKALB XL-325 2. DEKALB XL-45 3. DEKALB XL-346 Earliest of the group — a high population hybrid — short stalked with girthy ears and deep kernels. Doyle Smith of Lawton in Woodbury County harvested 163.4 bu. of XL-325 from a measured acre in 1966. He planted 20" rows with a harvest stand of over 29,000. Smith said, "My XL-325 came up to an excellent stand and standability was good." Everybody's modern hybrid — the short, high population, high fertilization, tough-stalked strong shanked hybrid, capable of combating stress situations and keeping that "ear on every stalk". Dean Vander Heiden of Wheatland, Iowa, who had the first 200 bushel yield in Iowa (215.05 bu.) from a measured acre In 1966, and who was the Matter Corn Grower's Contour winner in 1965 (174.74 bu.), raised XL-45 alone to get his 1966 yield and in combination with XL-346 for his 1965 yield. Dear says, "I custom harvested about 35,000 bushels of different brands and found XL-45 and XL-346 to be definitely in a class by themselves. I like their ability to take high populations and stand under adverse conditions. I had no dropped ears. In my opinion, they have no equal." Latest of the trio — 3 to 5 days behind XL- »5 — XL-346 is quite similar to XL-45 in its characteristics. It has the same ability to take high pressure situations and to harvest easily. Top yield in 1965 was Clyde Night's average 200 -f- bushels per acre on 388 acres. To obtain it, Might planted XL-346 and XL-45 ' in alternating blocks. Top yield in 1966 in DeKalb's 200 Bushel Club, by Emanuel Weibert of Colorado, was 217.9 bushels of XL-45. However, Weibert, in the same field, had an unofficial machine-checked yield on XL-346 which made 226.3 bushels par acre. Weibert liked XL-346 for his 20" rows with its ease of harvesting, good standability, and desirable ear height. BIG NAME for BIG YIELDS ••0£KALB"liiRuillind6rindNim«.

Work On Pool At West Bend Progressing Good weather has allowed construction on the West Bend swimming pool to continue after being at a stand-still through the winter months. At a meeting of the swimming pool committee March 31, Chairman Glenn Schellhammer announced that there is still a need for funds for the pool's completion over the amount set aside by West Bend's council for the major part of the building of pool and bathhouse. The campaign for contributions for the swimming pool fund a year ago, plus contributions made since then from individuals, business firms and organizations brought the amount to $9,253. In the near future, the pool committee plans to mail out pledge cards to some who pledged amounts but have not yet made contributions. The committee also plans to reach some with whom no contact was made during the campaign a year ago. Donations to the West Bend Swimming Pool fund are tax deductible and can be made to the committee chairman, Glen Schellhammer. Meanwhile, the summer recre- ation committee Is making arrangements for West Bend children to receive Red Cross swimming instruction early in the season from another town's pool as in previous suirimers. • g B"BTo"o~5 fl 0 B fl B'B'B B B'ftf&i movie clock [ fl_QJULP-P OOP 00000 a o a o o^ ALGONA THEATRE THURSDAY - Complete Program begins 7:00-9:13.
