WET WALLS, HEAT LpSS CAUSE Wot walls and excess heat loss are two farrowing house problems which many Allamakee County farmers are fighting this winter, says Extension Director Fred C. O'Riley. He says Agricultural Engineer Fred- Roth of Iowa Stale University points out that the euro for these ills is a combination of insulation and ventilation. The normal breathing of one sow will fill the air with nearly a gallon of moisture per day. A ventilating fan system removes this warm, moist air and replaces it with drier air from outside the buildings. Roth says the fan should be capable of moving about 20 cubic feet of air per sowper minute during cold weather. Insulation makes walls and ceil ings warmer, and reduces' condensation and heat loss, Roth adds. The most common bat, or blanket, insulation materials are: Rock wool, fiberglass and wood fiber. They are best suited for walls, Roth says. A fill-type insulation is more easily used on ceilings. Roth says you need only to dump the bag of expanded vermiculite or rock wool pellets and spread it four inches deep. This depth will not only help contain the heat during the winter, but also keep it out in the summer. In the colder, northern half of the state, wall insulation should be two inches thick, in the southern half, Roth suggests a one-inch minimum thickness. The interior side of all insulation should be covered with a moisture barrier to hold and help the material dry and effective. Roth says. Some insulation blankets are equipped with aluminum foil jackets which are better than paper barriers. Another way to stop vapor is by instadding a polyethylene film on the interior side of the insulation. If moisture does get absorbed in the insulation, this film will act as a conductor, "ushering" the heat out of the house, he adds.

By next week, we may have a feed grain bill, the House having now passed one and the Senate another; neither of which is very strong. No one seems particularly happy with either one. I doubt: (1) that the legislation will greatly reduce feed grain surpluses, and (2) that food prices will be affected either way. But the measures will last only one year—this one. The next farm bill will be the big one, and should come on before fall. Accordingly, I have introduced H. R. 5390 which I think is a good one. Congressman Schwengel of our First District introduced it earlier in the House and Senators Hickenlooper and Miller nave introduced it in the Senate. It has some support. It is called the "Cropland Adjustment Act jf 1961" and provides for voluntary acreage reduction with payment in cash or kind. I will be glad to send you a copy. ***** Lake McBride's fine painter Zora DuVall has kindly loaned me one of her finest, "Iowa Barn — Autumn". This is the first of works of the Second District artists to hang in our Washington office. I intend, proudly, to show many of them. ***** The prospect for Federal aid to education is becoming confused, more by its friends than its opposition. Aid to private and parochial grade and high schools has divided the President and Rep. McCormack, his floor leader in the House. Support of teacher salaries is believed to be opposed by Speaker Rayburn. Add the question of whether Uncle Sam should help segregated schools and you see the three big questions which right now cloud the future of the program. ***** Welcome department: Forty-two Iowans stopped by the office this week, including Farm Bureau Women, union leaders and Methodist youth.
