Jtiiof ckanfrer At their recent state convention in Davenport; the Iowa Junior Chamber of Cptnnitree flitted* * resolution comfriendinii th« establishment of a itite jftft^, WU.ofa. The young executives called attention to the fact that It offers the young man of today, who Is not in the army, a chance to get into shape to fight for his country if he is called. in 'many Instances, the Junior chamber was Instrumental In the formation of a company ot guardsmen. In Des Molnes the headquarters company for the guard is made up largely of junior chamber of commerce members and other young married men 6t the city. Issue . . • ':<•,.- ; . Where they, were searching for an issue a few weeks ago, candidate for the gubernatorial nominations, in the spring primaries have a common issue today. It is the recent increase In rates of the state's major telephone company. When the telephone, company raised Its rates 16 per cent In most of the cities in Iowa It was the immediate object, of attack by every candidate for the governorship except Nelson O, Kraichel. Secretary of 0. Miller, upon the advice of his Des Molnes advisors, immediately declared that state regulation was needed. His opponent, Lt. Gov. B. B. Hlcken- looper, then wrote a letter to the telephone company suggesting immediate rescinding of the rate increase. Senator A. E. Augustine, Kraschel's opponent on the Democratic ticket, called attention to the fact that the telephone rates were not decreased during the depression and they should not be increased now. Of course the candidates for the senatorship also jumped into the limelight with statements attacking the rate increase. 'Sum and substance to date Is that the rate increase is in effect and no way to stop it has been discovered by the politicians. Several attempts to regulate telephone companies have been defeated in the past in the state legislature. Once a bill for a public utilities commission was vetoed by the late Gov. Nate Kendall.

ITEMS OF INTEREST TO THE FARMERS TOBEIKOCUUTEO All soybean seed planted this year probably should be inoculated with a good commercial inoculant, in view of the war emergency and the need for the production ot beans of the highest possible quality, says A. 0. Norman of the soils staff at Iowa State College. Norman recommends that all beans planted on land on which nodulated soybeans have never been grown within the last 3 seasons should be inoculated. The bacteria that form nodules- on the soybean do not Inoculate any other legume. This means that soybean bacteria will only be present in the soil of a field if it has previously had a well-nodulat- ed crop on it. The requirements of nitrogen for soybean growth are very heavy. Only the very best of soil will furnish sufficient available nitrogen for uninoculated beans to give maximum yields and high protein production. In well-nodulated beans on the ordinary run of soils, the nitrogen taken from the air and made available to the plant by the nodule bacteria substantially supplements that obtalneed from the soil. Good commercial inoculant is relatively inexpensive, especially when purchased in the large-sized containers. A small Increase in yield will pay for the cost several times over, Norman explains. The humus cultures, in which the basteria are carried on finely divided moist peat, can be readily mixed with the seed. The operation is not difficult. Pertinent Facts About Gardening W o4 ImpPrtant function of fc wee4 control ™- J - and the first plantings of carrots, beets and turnips are .planted together, the ground on'their rempya\ may be used for late, .summer and fall crops.- ''*:'. * • * In the experimental gardens at Iowa State College more green and wax beans have been secured from the July sown crop than that ot early May. Chinese cabbage has produced better heads when sown about July 25 than when sown in the spring. Turnips likewise were better when seed was sown about Aug. 1 than when grown as a spring crop. * • * Several plantings should be made of carrots and beets. The early sowings should be used in the summer. The crop for winter storage should be sown about July 15 to secure more succulent, palatable roots. Good cultural practices and a program of heavy fertilization are required to obtain proper growth and yields when two crops are grown qn the same laud in a season. * « « The vegetable garden will benefit from supplemental irrigation almost every year. If rainfall were evenly distributed, 1 inch per week would be enough, but since it is not, water can be supplied profitably during dry spells to make up the deficit. • a flw/ wpfc «wt.ftw lisa, ihjy compete »»jJowly Avoid Loss in Eggs by Storing Them Properly Farmers and produce dealers should exerclee care In the storing of eggs if they are to be kept free from objectionable odors, urges Ward Wagner, poultry marketing specialist at Iowa State College. Reports front egg,drying plants in Iowa indicate that each plant has a daily loss of from 300 to TOO pounds of liquid eggs per day due to objectionable odors transmuted to the egg by other products, This JOBS, fg tf»e equivalent of 9 to 20 pa»e« of eggs broken out daily by eftcb plant, It i» * »P8» be f»fUy pwwtefl by ftdllng, 'Wagjw |ayg, Eggs phould pet fee stored g«lre » woo} }ena^ 94 from^ a quar i»Cb to an, ftHfe feed tW**P*r»*«* i Cholera is Most Fatal Swine Disease In spite of the fact that hog cholera 1 is preventable it is still the most prevalent disease of swine in this country and takes a toll of 20 to 30 million dollars Annually from farmers who have failed to protect their hogs against it, says K. W. Stouder, extension veterinarian at Iowa State College. It Is one of the most contagious disease of swine and by far the most fatal. The death loss is always high once it breaks out on a farm, and entire herds sometimes die within a few days. It attacks all Ages of swine and the virus which causes cholera may live In the soil for a long time, Stouder says. As a rule, little pigs will resist infection if the sows are immunis- ed and the premises kept clean un- .11 the pigs are weaned. After the pigs are about 8 weeks old and are weaned and eating for themselves, if they are given the double or serum-virus treatment, they are almost certain to attain lifetime Immunity to cholera, provided the treatment Is properly administered. The big outbreaks of cholera seem to come In waves several rears apart. It has now been some time since the Corn Belt has had one of these really serious outbreaks, Stouder says. The best thing for a farmer to do is to see that his hogs are healthy and have them • properly immunized as soon as they are ready for It. Skimmilk Can be Used For Poultry And Livestock Farmers who sell cream with a low butterfat content are giving away a large quantity ot sklmmllk which could be used to good advantage in feeding poultry and livestock, says A. W. Rudnick,_ extension dairy manufacturing specialist at Iowa State College. Marketing 40' percent cream instead of a 20,percent product will keep an extra gallon of skimmilk on the farm for each 100 pounds of whole milk, Rudnick points out. Even cream with a butterfat content of 36 percent leaves approximately one-half extra gallon of milk over cream testing 25 percent per 100 pounds of milk. Milk is valuable as a protein feed." A gallon r rff s>immllkTa. day over a year's time equals"' 300 pounds of 26-percent protein supplement for laying hens. For pork it takes 7 pounds of protein supple-: ment and 4 pounds of corn to equal 100 pounds of milk, according to Rudnick. When producing rich .. cream, however, care must be taken that no butterfat is lost in transferring the cream from one container to another. Rudnick recommends that the separator be warmed by running warm water through it before turning in the milk; after pouring cream from one can to another, pour some hot watur on the outside of the can and most of the cream will slide out; rinse the separator with warm skimmilk and then with warm water after separation has been completed.

INTERESTING ITEMS FROM All PORTIONS STATE OF IOWA IOWA FARM KERNELS The new government differential loan rates for sealed corn have not succeeded in preventing the piling up of corn in Iowa and the northwestern Corn Belt states, according to a study made by Geoffrey Shepherd, agricultural economist at Iowa State College. If feed prices are to be kept at reasonable levels and it the livestock program is not to be hampered by a feed shortage, Iowa farmers must feed wheat, and in large quantities— at least 50 million bushels a, year— in the opinion economists at Iowa State College. A tablespoonful of salt used in each gallon of water should be fed for a period of 1 week to reduce cannibalism in poultry, say Iowa State College poultry specialists, Home-made controllers on electric fences pay cost a l}fe some day— your life.
