10-Alfjmw, (la.) Upper DM Molne* , Augutt 22, 1967 Hobo King, Pennslyvania Kid, Pays Algona A Visit Algona had a visitor last Friday-none other than the PENNSYLVANIA KID, King of the Hoboes elected in the 1966 annual Hobo Day event at our neighbor to the east, Britt. Today, Tuesday, Aug. 22, is annual Hobo Day in Britt, incidentally. The Pennsylvania Kid is shown with John Stegman youthful editor and publisher of the Britt News-Tribune, in the photo, taken in the Upper Des Moines pressroom. Stegman . made a business trip to Algona, and brought the 1966 Hobo King with him. The Kid is also a candidate for reelection to the King title in today's event at Britt. His real name is Richard Wilson. He is 60 years of age, and has been a hobo off and on since he was 16 years of age. He hails from Franklin, Pa. That hat he is wearing is adorned with a variety of pins and emblems, including a house guest lapel badge from a Holiday Inn, where they put him up one night just for the hell of it. How To Help Demand For More Pork Why does Mrs. America consider a "big thick steak" the ultimate status symbol? Why do family cookouts feature hamburgers or a chicken sizzling on the rotisserie instead of a pork roast, sausage, or "ribs"? Even though pork prices to the housewife are down, pork has become associated in the public mind with low-income diets. Pork is losing its popularity for a number of reasons. A taped interview with two specialists in pork breeding programs, as reported in the Fall Forecast issue of The Farm Quarterly, brings out many sales points of value for pork breeders who wish to see more and better pork products used by American families with a resulting profit to the industry. Mrs. America says her family doesn't like pork, but on the other hand asserts they really go for ham and bacon. In order to put pork on a really competitive basis for the markets now claimed by beek, chicken, turkey and imported canned hams and bacon, these experts have many valuable suggestions, starting with proper breeding and grading. They forecast a necessity for new and imaginative merchandising methods to increase the number of pork products served both at FARMERS!

They point out that some of the criticism of domestic pork products in relation to the quality of imported ham and bacon is justified, and suggest ways to improve this situation. Included in these new ideas are environment and heredity as factors in sow productivity; incentives for breeding quality; and developing the pork producer's concerns for these responsibilities. The taped-interview report is supplemented with two pages of carcass yield photographs that provide a valuable reference for quality pork production in the Fall Forecast issue of The Farm Quarterly Women's Golf Tourney Set At Bancroft The ladies' North KossuthGolf Club tournament will be held Wednesday, Aug. 23 at Bancroft for club members only.
