Young Visitors At Dodds Farm Twenty-seven members of Mrs. Leon Laird's afternoon kindergarten class from Lucia Wallace school here had the time of their lives Friday afternoon, May 26, when they visited the Jim Dodds farm six miles northwest of Algona and were treated to a "grand tour." Mrs. Dodds reported to the Upper Des Moines that the children seemed to enjoy the visit immensely. The children, Mrs. Laird and Mrs. Jack Chrischilles, room mother, arrived at the farm by school bus - and Mr. Dodds showed them about everything on the place. One highlight of the event proved to be pony rides for all. The children also took a good look at baby pigs, foxes, rabbits, ponies, lambs, calves and watched while dairy cattle were milked. Mrs. Dodds snapped the above photo as the group enjoyed a ride on a flatbed trailer. H. R.

"Kossiilh County's Favorite Newspaper" "You bet we have ATBAZINE. How much shallvre send out?" Just call us for your requirements of this remarkable herbicide that does such an outstanding job of full season control of most annual broadleaf weeds and grasses. In Iowa, 539 yield checks were made last year to find out the results from Atrazine. The results showed this: weed control with Atrazine in Iowa averaged 19 more bushels per acre than with cultivation alone. The cost of weed control with Atrazine varied with method and rate of application. But, figured at the average rate used in Iowa, this j-ield increase amounts to about a 3-1 return on investment. That's like spending $1 to get $3 back. Not bad. In fact, it's a better investment than most you can make on your farm. All it takes is for moisture or a shallow cultivation to move Atrazine down into the weed root zone. From then on out you're set for season-long control of most annual broadleaf weeds and grasses. This puts an end to weed competition for moisture, sunlight and soil nutrients. ATRAZINE CAN BE BROADCAST OR BANDED — CALL US! —WE 1 ALSO CARRY OIL FOR MIXTURE- CUSTOM FARM SERVICES, INC.
