Mouth gave trouble FRANK PRIEBES Dear Friends: A Massachusetts poultryman came out to the Middle West for a visit. "I don't see how folks out there can continue to keep poultry," he said, "if conditions continue the way they are now. They have to pay practically the some price as we do for commercial feed. And thefar eggs bring just a little more than half of what we're jrettine for ours." -Commenting on this report, another pouftryman askfc, "Will those folks out there (meaning us) hang on in hopes that we will sell out"? A produce man in Iowa thinks so. Just last week he wrote me that Iowa farmers will still be producing chickens when these commercial producers have gone back to raising tomatoes and onions." 'Jan not so sure! Most of the commercial poult- rymen I know are well established in the poultry business. They have thousands of 'dollars invested in nouses and equipment.

Under those circumstances they aren't going to give up very easily. Furthermore, most of them are good business men. They know their costs. If the going .gets rougher, they'll find ways to reduce their costs and improve their products so they will bring more money. I'm afraid that anyone in the Middle West who is waiting for the commercial poultrymen to go out of business is in for a rude awakening, Mid-\Ve«t Muit Improve Duality I'm inclined to agree with the agricultural reporter for an Iowa paper. He points out that "even at somewhat higher production costs, these specialized poultry men in the East have been able to practically crowd mid-western poultry out «f the big eastern markets. They have done it by producing really high quality birds. "What has been said for market poultry goes for eggs, too. Iowa eggs can be greatly improved in quality. In fact, they will have to be better to hold their markets once supply catches up with demand for any long period of time. "The Iowa poultry industry is at a crossroad. Either it can keep on its present course and con. tinue to take a beating from other sections: Or it can tighten up on quality all along the line from hatchery flock to packing plant. And the decision must be made soon." The question of who will be rais. ing poultry in the future can't be answered by saying, "The commercial poultryman in the East" or "the farmer in the Middle West." It will be whoever produces good poultry and eggs at the lowest possible cost. We can do it here in the Middle West. The question is, Will we? Sincerely yours, tow»—Official Counl Seed Rye In For Spring Feeding Seeding rye this fall may take some of the pressure off next spring's feeding problem. Rye, seeded about this time of year, can be used for late fall grazing or as a temporary pas. ture for early grazing next spring Iowa State College agronomists point out that it can be pastured eaz'ly in the spring when bluegrass is still too small to be used profitably and hard corn supplies are low. The rye can be plowed up later and the temporary pasture area planted to corn or seeded to such for evtra feed the following summer. 4>Hogs weighing more than 25C pounds require more corn pel poun<l to gain than lighter ones. Pasture, substitute grains, balanced rations and the right pro. tein supplements all help the hog feeder stretch out mature corn supplies. M-rs.

Our SfBC service has just released sotm,e very clever caricatures by the 1 noted magazine artist, Sam Berman. Herman originated Esky, ;he wolfish, large.mustached little man on the cover of Esquire maga. zine. Particularly memorable was his wartime series for Collier's titled "These Are The Guilty"— the faces of all the infamous Axis war criminals. Bob Hope is back on the air and we want you t° see Herman's clever caricature of Bob and Jerry Colonna. We hope you'll enjoy Hope's show as much as ever and merely want to remind you that you'll find this familiar, clever comedy on WHO each Tuesday night at 8^:00 o'clock. Tune in 1040. Have you ever eaten the succulent roast beef served at "Arthur's Place" every Friday night? His hash is supposed to be pretty tasty, too, but just on the show, friends. In private life, Arthur admits to being the world's worst cook Arthur Moore plays the starring role and had nearly as many experiences as the Arthur he portrays.-^He has produced stage anc radio shows in night clubs, on the .air and in pictures. He has led band, traveled with carnivals as truck driver shill, peg-puller, con cession operator and handy man Moore is an expert mechanic though you wouldn't guess it from the mixups he gets into on the show. He's 35 years old and was born in Center, N.D. He married a violinist, Margot Bussy, and they have two daughters. Susan is eight and Mary is three. Each week Arthur presents s guest star who enjoys the food and fun with Arthur, the happy-go- lucky character. Dreamboat Mulvaney played by Sara Berner, is one of the principal assistants in Arthur's place Dreamboat is a combination waitress and cashier. She has as much faith in her ability to interpret dreams as the gambler has in his ability to pick a winning horse ant about the same degree of success )reamboat may not live in « work of her own but sometimes Arthur wishes she did.

A 160 acre tract near Mitchelville has been purchased 'or this FM station which will be ;he tallest man-made structure in he world, the equivalent of 30 tories higher than the Empire State building. The station will iperate with the power of 157,000 watts and that power and the ower's height will enable KBNT o provide nearly all Iowa with noise-free high fidelity programs. According to manager Phil Hoffman, probably a year will be required to erect the tower after :onstruction begins. Plans are being completed for the earlier Building of a modern structure to louae transmitter facilities at the FM tower site. Dairy cattle will make good use of the oats now pouring into bins throughout the state. Lyle Jackson, Iowa State College dairyman, says that the feeding value of oats is about 00 percent of that found in corn.

It was a bargain and exactly the right size for Alice, so she bought it. To her amazement, Alice began to cry when she opened the package, "Its lovely", "but it has a cardigan neckline and all the'other kids wear pul overs." At first her mother thought, "This is child's nonsense. Here is a good buy and she will have to wear it." Then her mother remembered how she had felt at 14. She had been forced to wear an old supply of middies after the style was strictly "out" among her compan- ons. She would never forget her self-conscious misery. Then she reflected, "Perhaps Alice is now old enough to go along with me when I shop for her clothes. Perhaps I should consult ler before buying. At 14 girls do have their own ideas, but they are such awful ideas! Yet how will she learn if I don't take her along and teach her how to buy?" Alice and her mother took back the sweater. Together they selected a pull over. Alice immediately chose the worst, hard hitting color n the store. Her mother did not criticize her taste, but showed her toat it would not go well with ier other clothes and it would not dry clean or wash very well. Alice had not thought of those :hings, and she was perfectly will- Ing to accept another color—so Song as the sweater was pull over. She had received her first lesson in choosing her own clothes. There were other lessons to be learned and her mother decided to take Alice with her on future shopping trips, This question about clothes is >ne which girls ask every day. Per. flaps they should change it slightly. Perhaps they should ask, "Should, n't a girl have the right to learn how to choose her own clothes?" The answer then is Yes"!
