Tune Tractor To Cut Fuel Costs Income to the two trust funds out of which social security benefits are paid exceeded outgo by $648 million during the year ending December 31, 1960, according to Albert J. D'Amour, district manager of the Winona social security office. "The 21st annual report of the trustees bf the two funds also gives fiscal and calendar year estimates for the following five years, 15 years, and for the long-range future up until the year 2025," D'Amour said. These figures, based on provisions of the present social security law, show trjat income to the two funds during the 1960's and on into the long range future will be sufficient to cover all outlays for benefits. Income to the old-age and survivors insurance trust fund during calendar year 1960 exceeded outgo by $184 million. Total disbursements for the year amounted to just under $11.2 billion. Total income for the year was close to $11.4 billion. At the end of the year, the fund stood at $20,324,000.000. Total income to the disability insurance trust fund during 1960 exceeded outgo by $464 million. Disbursements totaled $604 million, and income totaled $1,068 million. At the end of the year, assets of this fund totaled $2,289,000,000. "The estimates for the five years following 1960," D'Amour said, "show that under present law, total income to the old-age and survivors insurance trust fund over the five-year period will amount to $70.8 billion." Total outgo during that period will come to $67.0 billion with a total excess of income over outgo amounting to $3.8 billion. At the end of December 1965, the assets of the old-age and survivors insurance trust fund are expected to amount to $24.2 billion. During these same. five years, the assets of the disability insurance trust fund are expected to grow from the present $2.3 billion to $2.7 billion. Total income over the five years is estimated at $5.9 billion and total disbursements at $5.5 billion. "By the end of December 1970," D'Amour said, "the trustees estimates are that the old-age and survivors insurance trust fund will have grown to S46.6 billion. On the same date, disability insurance trust fund assets are "estimated at $4.1 billion." Booklet No. 36, "Facts About the Old-Age and Survivors Insurance Trust Fund" is available free at the Social Security Office, 356 East Sarnia, Winona, Minnesota. NEW E BONDS GROW IN VALUE FASTER AND MATURE SOONER Here is the NEW table of cash values for E Bonds '""^H" J»"° 1959 and aftert Save And You Will Have Petroleum fuels, such as gasoline and L. P. Gas, are the biggest items in Allamakee county farmers' tractor costs, says County Extension Director Fred C. O'Riley. He reports that Agricultural Engineer Dale Hull of Iowa State University says much of your gasoline and L. P. gas is never converted into power because tractor engines are not tuned up to burn the fuel efficiently. Hull says farmers can save fuel by making a few simple adjustments before heavy spring work. These include installing new spark plugs and ignition points. He also suggests, checking the air cleaner. There should be no obstructions in the pre-cleaner air-intake pipes, or air cleaner screen itself. Hull also says yovi should be sure the thermostat is operating at 180 degrees, regardless of the type of fuel burned. It will keep your fuel economy high — and trouble down.

WASHERS- DSI SALES and SB Kittleson TEST HULLED SEED BEFORE PLANTING Card of Thanks THANK YOU —We wish to express our sincere thanks to our relatives and friends for their kind words of condolence, cards, flowers, food and memorial gifts during the hospitalization and death of our mother and grandmother. A special thanks also to Rev. Witt and Rev. Silvius for their kind kelp and prayers. Mr. and Mrs. Harry Lar.dt and Mr. and Mrs. Robert Landt and family. 22p. Allamakee county farmers who intend to plant hulled forage or grain-crop seed this year can eliminate risk by having their seed tested for "condition", says County Extension Director Fred C. O'Riley. O'Riley says that, according to Leroy Everson, head of seed testing at Iowa State University, seed hulled by combining or other operations often suffers damage that reduces its ability to produce a crop in the field. Some seed damages easier than others, Everson points out. Oat seed usually survives hulling in good shape. Timothy, on the other hand, injures easily. Iowa State studies show that hulled seeds lose their viability (germination capacity) sooner than unhulled seed. So, Everson warns, it's doubly important to have your seed tested if it has been stored for a long time. A laboratory germination test will give some indication of the degree of damage. If your germination report reads "high", you can plant your seed without further worry. Everson adds that Iowa State's seed laboratory can now test all seed samples sent in without delay. INJURED Fred J. Grof of Elk Horn was partially disabled recently when he fell and sprained his arm and tore ligaments. Last year Mr. Grof broke bones in his foot in a similar accident.
