They are the estimated plantings of grain for this year of 1957. !.• In 1956 the entire corn planting in the U.S. was 78,557,000 acres. In 1957 it is estimated at 74,410,000 acres. This is a reduction of over 4 million acres. Iowa shares heavily in this reduction. 2. The second important phase of this picture is that in 1950 .there were 21,503,000 acres of grain sorghums planted in the (J. S. The estimated planting for 1957 of grain sorghums is 26,490,000 acres. This is an increase of nearly 5 million acres. » » t Grain sorghums are, raised mostly in the * southern and southwestern portions of the nation. Texas, for instance, is increasing its grain sorghum acreage considerably over 1 million acres over 195t3. Kansas is adding nearly 2 million acres to its grain sorghum plantings. ^ So, we see that the provisions of the Soil Bank are, for all practical purposes, offset by the increased acreage of grain sorghums. This is particularly detrimental to Iowa farmers. The South ends up with raising our grain. They are feeding more livestock, and all we end up with is a consistently low price and no market and no production on the level we should be producing. • • t • Recently, the so-called Cooley Bill was defeated in the House. This was the bill which would have given the commercial corn area more corn acres and would have provided a Soil Bank for feed grains which would have reduced grain sorghum acres. That bill was defeated by right of the fact that a substitute, called the Folk-Harrison amendment (which called for an increase in corn acres but did nothing to reduce feed grains) wan entered in its place, but it was defeated. • * • In any case, we are inow faced with the sad fact that we have 4 million fewer corn acres, but 5 million more grain sorghum acres and we have no program which is designed to stop this shift which is obviously detrimental to the economy of Iowa. • * * During the ysar ol 1955 and again in 1956 the farmers of the state of Iowa lost one billion dollars of income each year in comparison to the rest of the economy. As the farm population spends 70% of received income in the retail stores of our towns, that means that our merchants and business people lost seven hundred million dollars in each of the years 1955 and 1956. This is the vital reason why the farm situation is so important to all of us in Iowa. Your Congressman Merwin Coad Buy Top Boar At National Sale Albert Kollasch and son* of Bancroft purchased the top selling boar at the Poland China National Spotlight Show and Sale at Cedar Rapids,, Saturday, The boar, which was the reserve champion of the show, sold for $725. It was a litter-mate of the champion boar, which sold for $710. Both boars were raised at Kanawha. _ COLLECTOR Don Pattern, of Hampton, has an impressive stamp collection, specializing in first-day issue.-;. The oldest stamp dates, back to 18f)l, the eighth stamp issued in tin; UiiiU'd ' An interesting note came from Marie Grover the other day. Ola timers will like to read the contents. Miss Grover lives with her sister, Mrs R. M. Wallace, and it is to her she refers by'"us." "Yesterday our brother Will Grover, wife and son Harold came for us to go up to their place to see where the trees were cut. They live on our parents old farm home. We have been having quite a few trees cut down on our farms and having the roots cleared out. I felt badly to see the trees cut. My parents worked so hard to plant this large grove of seventeen acres. I don't know whether you ever attended a "gopher picnic" but this big grove and lovely largo lawn was where those picnics were held for years, till auto mobiles enabled people to go farther for better entertainment. In the old days there was a place called "Sod Town." It is about a mile from our farm. The Henry Smiths, Manns (Frank's grandfather) and Fairbanks families lived there, the three sod houses close together. Roy Mann now lives on his grandfather's place. Just across the road is the old Fairbanks house which Luther J. Fairbanks (grandson) owns. The Henry Smith place is just a bit north of these other places. All the trees on this old Fairbanks farm are now cut and the house is to be destroyed. Thus another old landmark will be wiped out and forgotten. It makes me feel badly." Well, I agree with Miss Grover. I too hate 'to sec the trees cut down, especially the black walnuts. * • • Confirmation day at the Trinity Lutheran church will take plop j|Mm iSundayinste'acJ-.of last Sunday as I reported. The" friend who gave me the list wasn't too sure she had the complete list but couldn't remember the rest, and finally decided she had given them all. Such was not the case and here is the revised list. Karen Alt, Nancy Geilenfeld, Beverly Johnson, Linda Reidel, Caroline Rochleau, Patty Schneider, Beverly Warner, Allen Adams, William Brewer, Carl Danielson, Larry Danielson, Luetz Duerr, Leonard Funk, Ronald Gardner, James Gatton, Alvin Hagg, Glenn Johnson, Robert Wedman, Dean Willrett, Eugene Wittkopf and Bahne Struecker. * * * Mrs George Baluff is a native of Dubuque and since I have been there a few times, it's fun talking about her "old home town". She remarked that beginning to be more Algonun than Dubuquan for shs now reaches for the Algona papers first, letting the one from Dubuque take second place. n * * * • Jay Graham- his son and dau- gter-in-law, Mr and Mrs Glen Graham and their son took Mrs Graham to Perry Saturday to entrain for California. When I asked what place, Vera replied, "Paradise," I said, "Well, every place there is Paradise, isn't it?" She assured me there IS a town by that name. Mrs Graham will visit her sister, Mrs Minnie Dearchs a fortaiglft. * * * Mrs Robert Reilly told me if it hadn't been for her daughter Patty being with her, she doesn't know how she could have^made the trip to Colorado recently. It was quite a schedule. They left Tuesday for Colorado Springs, arrived there Wednesday, lett that evening and were back in Iowa Thursday. The Reillys' daughter, Mrs Eugene Simpson, is hospitalized and in isolation for treatment of virus hepatitis. It was easier to bring the children here, so Christien and Jeffrey are guests of the grandparents till "Mom" is home again. She phoned her parents Saturday to let them know she is getting along nicely. Patty was really most helpful in looking after the tots on the train. * • » My Esther didn't recognize hei picture in the paper—one of the lucky person to win sorr.e Merchandise FREE. It took her sister Bernadine Allen to "spot" it. Now Esther is all a-twitter trying to decide what to get. * * * The things one finds in the refrigerator! It has been cleaned frequently, everything set out and checked over, and today, lo and behold there were four ripe olives left over from last fall when I entertained the Abner Longs. It looked like a syrup, the dark fluid in the glass jar. and each time Esther would set it back with the thought of using it when we'd have a mince pit*. Tocjay she got really curious and when I went,to lho table I exclaimed. 'What? Kipu I've been watching the shadct, at Marie Hawcott's. So far they remain DOWN, tssi I expect them to be up most any day. She wrott neighbors she would start home April 2. I suppose she heard tht weather news and decided to stay in California till things wert- better out this way. She and her brother and sister Lee and Bess Hopkins have been spending the winter in Duarte at the George Boswell court. * * • The fanciest mailbox in town is, I am sure, at my back door. It bears the silvered letters, "Mrs Ethel Gilles" and was made by her brother R. A. Davidson. It is a work of art and if she doesn't get plenty of mail now, we'll take it up with "Uncle Sam." My tack door by the way, Is Mrs Gilles' front door, for it leads to a small hall to her apartment. Sounds kinda crazy, doesn't it. » « • I had sort of wanted to attend the "Home Show" but when my Esther got home and told mt what a mob was there Sunday afternoon, I figured it was a good thing I didn't attempt it. I do say "Thanks" to'Evelyn Oakland for the dial pencil she sent me. Some day I am going to keep track of the number of phone calls I make. * * • The neighborhood has perked up. Marie Hawcott, Bess and Lee Hopkins are home from California! Saw. their' lights Sunday eyening.
