Corn-Bean Clinic Here Thursday ^nprf Iflfifl * * * ~ —— I|JGU IUUU Pft|-|l __ C A lfU AAM ni:-:^ Tuesd °V- Feb - «• 1968 Algona (la.) Upoer De S Moim Expect Farmers; Free Noon Lunch One of the:much-talked-about, widely publicized-Corn-Soybean Clinics will be conducted in Algona at Garrigan High School auditorium on Thursday, Feb. 8, beginning at 8:30 a. m. This 1968 Corn-Soybean Clinic is for those farmers who want to make more money farming, who want to stay in the business of corn-soybean production and who want to head the farming pack in innovating techniques and procedures. This Corn-Soybean Clinic isn't just one of those rum-a-dumb farm meetings that have been a favorite winter pastime. The Corn-Soybean Clinic scheduled for Algona is all business ... for farmers and producers who mean business; "There's no entertainment." FREE HOT LUNCH SERVED AT NOON The hot lunch at noon is free. So is the morning coffee and doughnuts served at 8 a. m. and there is no admittance charged. Doors to the auditorium will open at 8 a. m. Instead of entertainment, farmers will hear experts in the field of corn-soybean production speak on all facets of corn and soybeans. The day will be packed from 8:30 until 3:30 in the afternoon with the kind of information which makes profits — net profits to the farmer. There is a large, paved parking lot for cars. Subject material will be discussed by a group of experts from throughout the United States. These experts will give farmers the latest information in this complicated business of profitable corn-soybean production. There will be experts telling the insecticide story — there will be experts explaining the latest fertilizers - there will be experts on herbicides - there will be experts on proper seeds, cultivating and planting practices — there will be experts on harvesting and there will be experts on storage. Top farmers who have attended the Corn-Soybean Clinics in the past have agreed that these are the most informative, educational days conducted in the midwest. Problem subjects are hit head on and answers given. The day is concluded with a panel of experts, from five to eight knowledgeable men in their field, who will answer any questions the farmer has which deals with corn-soybean production. PREVIOUS CLINICS PROVED BENEFICIAL Farmers who attended clinics at corn-soybean sites in former years say they have heeded'the advice of the corn-soy bean clinic experts and are now involved in new, profit-proven practices. You will hear experiences of other top farmers who have im- •plemented proper techniques in corn-soybean production and as a result you can benefit from their knowledge. If you are one of the more than 50,000 North American farmers who attended one of the clinics conducted by Farm Shows last year, then you are primed to gain even more information this year.

TWO DOOR PRIZES TO BE GIVEN There will be an early bird door prize of a shotgun awarded at 9:30 a. m. to one of the farmers that registered early at the entrance to the hall.

Farmers from the area are invited to come early and stay late and spend what will probably be the most profitable day of the year. Milwaukeean parts of the United States and Canada. He manages to keep any meeting lively with his endless supply of humorous stories and farm experiences. Buescher has been in charge of Allis-Chalmers' participation in crop clinics for five years. Says Buescher, "Farmers have attended crop clinics by the thousands because the sponsoring companies and dealers have been able to give the farmer some worthwhile decision-making information at the clinics. Loren Utterback has spent most of his life in southern Iowa, including the last nine years in Winterset, but when Brail Wright, Graham's store manager for 25 years here, retired— Loren suddenly became a northern lowan. He is now the new manager of Graham's in Algona. Mr. Utterback, whose appearance belies the fact he has been with the company for 15 years, arrived here the day before Mr. Wright's retirement went into effect. Loren, although new here, likes what he's seen so far in Algona— although he's having a little trouble finding a house for his family. He and his wife, no Mae, who were married at Sigourney, have four children, Dennis, 13,Denise, 12, Darla, 8, andDanita, 7. While Loren is making his home here now, he is anxious to have the rest of the clan join him as soon as possible. Loren was born and raised at Delta, Iowa (near Oskaloosa) and during his high school days participated in baseball, basketball and football - and is still very much interested in sports. He would like to be a fisherman, but has found very little time to sit on the bank of a river or lake for quite a while. He was first employed by Graham's in the Oskaloosa store, moved up to assistant manager, then served for a while in the same post at stores in Sigourney Don O'Horo, New Gambles Mgr., Here From Kansas BeM-C At Corn Clinic New manager of the Gambles store here, Don O'Hara, arrived late Thursday afternoon to assume the post from Norm Christian, who in turn was to report as manager of the organization's store in Clay Center, Kansas. Christian had been manager of Gambles here for seven years, while O'Hara has served two more years than that managing Gambles stores in Winfield, El Dorado, and Concordia, Kansas. He came to Algona from Concordia. A native of Spencer and single, Don seems very happy to get back near his old stomping grounds. His mother, Elizabeth DeWitt, makes her home with him, and he has two brothers and a sister who still reside in Spencer. So, for Don and his mother, it will be like old home week. Mr. O'Hara joined Gambles in 1950 at Spencer - and has been with them ever since. It didn't take him long to become a manager and he served in that capacity at Sheldon, then Council Bluffs before traveling south and winding up in Kansas. Don has hobbies, but unfortu- DON O'HARA nately doesn't get much time to spend on them. He likes fishing, bowling and golf. And he gets a big kick out of all of the major sports events on TV - watching them every chance he gets. He is in the process of moving from Kansas to Algona - and is presently searching for a two or three-bedroom house. Mr. O'Hara is the latest addition to the business world in Algona.

Buescher has spent a lifetime in the farm equipment business and is well acquainted with farmers all over North America. For years he has filled speaking engagements and M.C. assignments for his company in all FEATURED AT HOOD'S LOREN UTTERBACK and Maquoketa before going to Winterset where he was manager. Apparently, earlier participation in baseball remains with him, for he has been active as a little league baseball and softball coach for a few years — and would like to take part in the program here this summer. His plans call for it, anyway. He and his family will be a welcome addition to the Friendly City.
