Boost In Gas Rate Asked By North. Natural A recent announcement made by Northern Natural Gas Co.. suppliers of natural gas to 385 mid-west communities, including Algona, appears to be raising a storm of protest from the distributing utility companies throughout the area Northern Natural serves. The announcement, to the effect that Northern Natural is petitioning the Federal Power Commission for authority to raise its rates to gas — distributing utility companies in the amount of over G million dollars annually, is drawing attention from a wide area. If permission for the rate increase is allowed by the FPC, it would moan a 7.15% increase in the cost of gas at Algona, according to Dick Carr, manager of North Central Public Service Co. here. In this instance, according to Carr, should the Northern Natural petition be granted in Washington, D. C., it would be necessary for the increase to be reflected in higher gas rates locally. Northern Natural Gas Co., supplies natural gas to 385 communities in Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, South Dakota and Kansas. They say the requested increase results from higher prices paid for new gas supplies and increased operating costs. A spokesman for Northern Natural also said the producer must now drill to a depth of almost three miles to obtain new gas supplies. According to officials of North Central Public Service Co., which distributes natural gas in Dubuque, Perry and Fort Madison, in addition to Algona, a period of approximately six months will be required by the Federal Power Commission to study the Northern Natural request. Representatives of the utility are engaging in a protest fight against the increase, which if granted, would of necessity have to be passed on to gas users. The Washington, D. C. hearings on the petition will be attended by "Worth, Central Public Service representatives. To enlist further support against a possible rate increase, representatives of the local utility firm, North Central Public Service Co., plan to request backing against the petition from area sources, including the Algona city council, it was stated by Dick Carr. Broken Wrists For Two Boys Titonka — Donald Gigler, son of Mr and Mrs Jake Gigler Jr., slipped and fell while doing chores at a neighbors and broke his wrist in two places Saturday.

Most Soil Bank Funds Likely To Go Unused While it may not be true In all areas, it appeared likely that only a small percentage of Kossuth farmers would take part in the 1957 corn acreage reserve program of the soil bank. The Kocsuih A.S.C. office said Wednesday thai only 87 corn agreements had been signed at the county ASC office here. These agreements call for total payments of $63,414.70 for underplaniing of corn allotments. There are 3,797.6 acres signed up for the remainder of 1957 in the acreage reserve. In 1956 there were 1506 sign- ups for this same program involving total payments of about $875,000. Deadline March 8 Kossuth county, with heavy participation in the corn acreage reserve program, could receive $775,478 if 100 percent of its appropriated funds were used. At • the minimum, $383,900 or 40 percent will be allocated the county. If all of Kossuth's potential appropriation is not used, the surplus could be used, elsewhere if signups are heavier. Deadline for filing the corn acreage reserve agreement portion of the soil bank program is March 8. - - Couniy ASC off iciais' said they believed the small'signup to date is "due to :tHe fact 'thaMt :agrfee^' ments to put land into the acreage reserve are signed, iar-mera will also have to reduce their corn allotment. They can, however, still stay in the program and get price supports by planting their allot-, ments without,use of the a'preage reserve portion of the program. • Moving Kossuth Govt. Corn In the meantime, governjnent- stored corn in Kossuth county was beginning to roll to-all-point* of the nation. Over 5 million bushels have been ordered to be shipped out, mostly to terminal elevators. County elevators can ship between sjx and eight cars a day. Approximately three-fourths of of the shipping orders have been received here. Price support rates on 1957 grain sorghum, ilaxseed, soybeans and small grains will be a little lower than those for 1958, it was also announced by the U.S. Dept of Agriculture. 1957 Support Prices Down '. The lower rates were generally expected since the previously announced average support price for 1957 corn, as determined, under the acreage allotment formula in effect this year, is $1.36 per bushel, or 14 cents under the 1956 crop rate, Following are the national average rates for 1957 commodities other than corn which are price-supported in Iowa: barley, 94c; flaxseed, $2.92; grain sorghum, $1,83 per hundredweight or 60 cents a 'bushel; rye, $1,15 pep bushel; and soybeans, $2.09 per bushel, County*by-cpunty rates (op 1957 have not 'been announced. Barley, grain sorghum, oats and rye will be supported at 70 percent of parity in J957 instead, of 76 percent as in 1956. The 1957 soybean support rate is 70 percent instead Q! 75 percent ag in 1956. Flaxseed will <be supported at 65 pea-cent instead of 70 percent.
