6-Algona (la.) Upper D«i Meinti Thunday, S«pt. 21, 1967 FARM PAGE Note Drop In Visitation At Union Slough The Union Slough National Wildlife Refuge Recreation Area closed for the year on Friday, September 15, said Refuge Man- ager, Paul Ferguson. Manager Ferguson reported that a total of 2,000 visitors to the area this season participated in the various outdoor activities available. Public participation in fishing increased for the year while swimming use dropped off considerably from last year's record total. Main reasons for the public use decline were the unseasonably wet month of June, followed by the coolest summer weather recorded In 17 years. The new TItonka heated swimming pool operating for the first full season also attracted many local former visitors away from the refuge area. Another factor contributing to the overall visitor use drop was the fee required before gaining entrance to the recreation area initiated this year under the Land and Water Conservation Fund program. Manager Ferguson and the refuge staff extend a special thanks to each of you, the using public, who have helped once again to make this another very successful recreational year. • DEVELOPMENTS FROM DEVALOIS Field day features at the North Farm include talks and demonstrations by members of the Iowa State University faculty and research staffs.

Algona Municipal Utilities WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A SMART SHOPPER: Everyone can be a smart shopper -it takes a knowledge of some simple ground rules plus the effort to stick to them. Being a smart shopper is the best way to get your moneys worth. If you have had experience then you are probably a better shopper than if you are inexperienced. Here are some suggestions to help both beginners and others — Never expect something for nothing, the storekeeper has to make a living too. Don't be an impulse buyer but ask yourself these questions-Do I need it? and - Can I afford it? Be an informed shopper — the better informed you are about prices, quality, advertising techniques, store reputations, labels, brands, even plain arithmetic the more you'll be able to get for your money. Knowing these rules are all well and good but you won't be an expert shopper unless you learn how to apply them. Food, clothing, and home furnishings all take a big part of each dollar. So look beyond today's needs and see what you need in the days and months ahead. You'll be hearing more about food buying during the month of October through programs planned by the Cooperative Extension Service. Plan to up date and increase your knowledge oh food buymanship by taking part in these programs. Fall grazing date set ahead ALGONA - Iowa feed grain producers who took part in the 1967 Feed Grain Program will get an extra month's pasture from acreage diverted under the program. R. I. Anderson, chairman of the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Committee for Kossuth County made the announcement. In previous years, farmers who diverted acreage to conservation uses under the USDA's annual production adjustment programs have been permitted to graze livestock on the land beginning with October 1 each year. Because present harvesting equipment and the widespread use of grain drying facilities have had the effect of advancing the normal corn harvest in most areas by about 30 days, this year's grazing date has been moved ahead a month to Sept. 1, Anderson explained. Moving this fall grazing date ahead will also help eliminate the need to fence off these diverted acres from other harvested land where farmors might want to use livestock to clean up crop residue. While diverted feed grain land can be used for grazing, the crop cannot be harvested for hay or silage, Anderson warned. GYROCOPTER James List, Granville farmer, is flying his own licensed gyro- copter, which he made entirely himself. It was the center of attraction at Paullina's Municipal Airport this summer. List is a member of the Experimental Aircraft Assn. and Popular Rotor- craft Assn. The copter can travel from 45 to 60 m.p.h. and weighs only 250 Ibs.
