Soybeans Better Than Expected Throughout County Yields of soybeans in Sioux County are averaging better than expected, according to Maurice Eldridge, Sioux County extension director. The highest yields are being reported in the Hull, Boyden, and Sheldon areas, ..with good yields of forty to forty-five bushels being common in the Alton, Orange City, Sioux Center, and Rock Valley areas. Highest"yield in the Rock Valley area reported so far is slightly over 60 bushels an acre. According to Eldridge, the southwest part of the county apparently is having the smallest harvest, much of the beans there averaging fifteen to twenty-five bushels. Dry, hot weather was detrimental to soybeans in that area, Eldridge noted. Moisture of the beans has been running from ten to twelve percent, making the quality quite good, Eldridge said. Some corn harvesting has also begun, most of it to be dried or used as high moist- IPS .Declares Dividend On October 10, 1975 Directors of Iowa Public Service Company declared a quarterly dividend of 40<t per share on Common Stock, payable December 1, 1.975--to stockholders of record November 7, 19-75., The regular quarterly dividend on the 3.75%, 3.90%, 4.20%, 8.08%, 7.64% and 10.88% Cumulative Preferred Stocks was declared payable December 1, 1975 to stockholders of record November 7, 1975. urc corn. Several reports of corn going down or ears dropping have been heard throughout the county, he said. Many will be starting to harvest corn this week. lowans Apply For $400 Million Decentralization of federal government has given the state more leverage, in the form of an overview, over disbursement of federal funds to cities and counties. Applications for most federal grants by local units of government have to be channeled through the state office of planning and programming. While the state agency's blessing is not required in order for a city or county to receive federal funds, nonetheless, it certainly enhances the chances of the project being approved. For the last six years, cities and counties seeking federal funds have been required to fill out an A-95 application form, the name comes from a circular issued by the federal office of management and budget. These forms are sent to one of 15 regional planning commissions and ,to A. Thomas Wallace, who is the federal funds clearinghouse officer in the state office of planning and programming. The regional commission takes a look at the application from the local level while Wallace views it from the state angle. After reviewing the application, both the regional commission and the state return it to the applicant with, appropriate comments. "If there is a dispute .we try to iron it xnit at the local or state level, "Wallace explained. "We're trying to avoid duplication and promote coordination between agencies," he added. As part of the state's review, Wallace calls on various state agencies that might have an interest in the project to comment on it. Neither the state office of planning and programming or a regional commission have veto power over an application from a local unit of government. Federal agencies require reviews, both from the state and the regional commissions, as a condition for granting federal funds. Robert Tyson, director of the state office of planning and programming, said fed. eral agencies have been "kind of slow" in paying much attention -to the comments by the state or regional commissions. But, Tyson believes this is changing. "Federal agencies," he said "are paying more attention to the comments now." Tyson believes the reviews by the regional commission and the state serve a~ "good purpose." In fiscal 1974, Tyson noted, local units of government in Iowa applied for over $400 million in federal funds. by Harrison Weber, Iowa Daily Press Assn.
