The money raised will go toward the $100 the club pledged for the church's sponsoring of an African student, Basil Marzorewa at Morningside college, Sioux City. The church has turned in $750 so far and Marzorewa is scheduled to speak here soon. Each of the 31 couples in the club were given a silver dollar with the promise lo double the money by March 25. Members were more than successful in their efforts. Triple the original amount was the least turned in. Mr. and Mrs. Clinton Godden made a big batch of home-made ice cream and invited a group of guests in to eat artd pay for it.

Can't Eat Way Out, Speaker Tells Group About 150 people from an eight county area were in Algona Tuesday night of last week to hear Wallace Ogg, agricultural economist from Iowa Stale Universily, discuss the three proposed farm programs plus the possibilities of a free market. The meeting was held at the ligh school. Ogg spent about an hour and a !ialf comparing the three farm programs and over 30 minutes answering questions. The programs covered, in addition to a discussion on a free market with free prices, were: the land retirement program sponsored by the Farm Bure a u; the administration's ABCD program; and the continuation of the 1961-62 program. Ogg said there are three objec- ives which are common to all hree programs. Those are, he said, 1. to support the farmer's ncome, 2. reduction of stocks stored grain), and 3. cost reduc- ion (the price paid for a program). Too Successful We have a farm problem because we have been so successful in >omething we have tried to do — apply science to agriculture, Ogg aid. The land grant colleges observe their 100th anniversary this year, he said, so we have had about a century of intensive application of science to agriculture. He noted that the purpose of the meeting was not to recommend or promote any of the farm programs out to compare them from an economic standpoint. Ogg added that there doesn't appear to be much chance of "eating our way out of the farm surpluses'.' because a population increase to 300 million woul<i only raise the wheat requirements by 50 per Cent .(above present production capabilities) and the need for feed grains would not'.quite double. Ogg first touched on the aspects of a free market. In this case the "medicine is so painful that no one really wants to take the cure," he said. Prices would take a rapid drop, he said. Relating probable prices Ogg said corn would range from 65 to 80 cents per bushel, wheat would be from 75 to 90 cents and hogs would sell for about $11 per hundred. Feed Grain Program The Feed Grain program has effected the first stock reduction i'ince 1952 according to Ogg. He said stocks dropped about seven million tons on that program. He added that this was in spite of conditions adverse to that possi- jility in the form of a good growing season and etc. Farm income was up about $1 billion, he said, partly due to the program and partly due to increased production. Ogg said the cash cost was up slightly over 1960 but it would have been even higher if the 1960 program had been continued and here had been no reduction of locks. He said there would have >een an increase in stocks if the 960 program had been continued. Corn Acreage Down The 1961 farm program took bout 25 million acres out of corn reduction but the actual reduc- ion was not so great according to )gg. He said this is due to the non-participators who increased their acreage by seven million acres so that must be subtracted from the 25 million. Projecting the Feed Grain program into the future Ogg made some predictions but cautioned that projections of this sort are sensitive to changes in the assumptions which must be made to arrive at the figures. With the present progress, Ogg said, the feed grain stock would be down to about 46 million tons and the 1.4 billion tons of wheat stock would be reduced by about one half. Farm income would remain about the same, he said. LEGION Mrs. Ruth Bosworth, charter member of the Armstrong Unit of the Legion Auxiliary was recently awarded a 40-year pin.
