The afternoon session will include addresses by William S. Beardsley, republican nominee for governor, and by Gov. Robert D. Blue. A state platform presented by the resolutions committee will be adopted and the 2 electors not chosen at caucuses will be named. The afternoon session will be the time for decision on the nomination for secretary of state which was not decided at the primary election because none of the 8 contenders then received 35 per cent of the total vote. Two Withdrawn Two of these have withdrawn, Joseph Miller of Des Moines and R. L. Voel/ of Minden. Remaining in the race are Jesse Halden, 54, of Newton; state Rep. Charles J. Knickernocker, 65, of Fairfax; Richard N. Mason, 30, of Ames, deputy secretary of state; Mrs. Earl G. Miller, 52, Des Moines, widow of a former secretary of state; Mrs. Helen Mitchell, 52, of Council Bluffs, a former deputy county auditor there, and M. D. Synhorst, 32, Orange City, a state examiner. The number is brought to 7 by the candidacy of George W. Prichard, Jr., 29, of Onawa, who was not in the primary race. The convention will consist of 3,396 delegates. BIKES SPUR PROJECT Warsaw, Poland, (/P)—The ministry of labor and social welfare is buying 345 bicycles to be given to Polish youths who show the best production record in the "In Service to Poland" movement. The government is mobilizing 2,000,000 youths this year under this organization for work on national reconstruction projects. The youths, 16 to 21, also receive 16 hours' military training monthly. CARE AND FEEDING OF GUESTS TOPIC Feeding the unexpected guest is never the problem to the homemaker with the well stocked larder that it would have been to Mother Hubbard. Mrs. Reeves has some recipes which will add to the convenience of well stocked larder use—meat and yam casserole, upside down corn cake, string beans with creamy horseradish sauce and leftover chicken steak. An emergency shelf is more important in summer than in the winter because when the weather is nice there are more unexpected guests, or if you are at the lake, and it is hot, you may be sure you will have some one "drop in." The following main dish may be quickly and easily put together if you have kept that ouelf stocked to date: MEAT AND YAM CASSEROLE One 12-ounce can of pork luncheon meat. One No. 2 can of yams or sweet potatoes. Two tablespoons brown sugar. Salt. Cut meat into slices; place in a shallow baking dish. Drain yams, saving i cup liquid. Slice yams and arrange around meat. Add sugar to the liquid from the yams and bring to a boil. Pour over meat and yams. Bake in a 375 degree oven about 25 minutes. UPSIDE-DOWN CORN CAKE Brown thin slices of bacon or ham in a frying pan then pour over them your favorite corn bread batter. Bake 30 minutes in a 400 degree oven.

The information for that bulletin doesn't come from the 1,000 field reporters but from 2 agents in each county.

If string beans are as plentiful and delicious as they were when every one had "Victory Gardens" you may appreciate a new flavor n their seasoning.

Sharp Eyes Note Growth of Iowa Corn Des Moines, (U.R)—The sharpest eyes watching the endless fields of waving green corn in Iowa, outside of the farmers themselves, belong to the Iowa crop and livestock reporting service. It is the service which constantly keeps tabs on the progress and condition of all crops in the state and forwards its figures to Washington. Plan for Estimate Right now Leslie Carl, chief of the service, and his farmer-statisticians are getting ready to estimate the corn production based on Aug. 1 conditions for relay to the department of agriculture, which will release the national and state estimates early next month. R. S. (Bob) Overton, Carl's senior statistician, pointed out that it isn't just a matter of looking into a crystal ball and coming up with an arbitrary number in the millions." Overton, who owns and lives on a 600-acre farm near Knoxville, said the methods of predicting the state's corn crop are much the same as those the average farmer uses in computing the probable yield on his "back 40," except that they are done with scientific statistical methods and comptometers. Many Reports Used The service relies heavily on the reports irom about 1,000 field reporters scattered throughout the state, who forward answers to a prepared list o£ questions on the condition and probable yield of corn and other crops in their areas. "Their estimates are processed, edited for errors and omissions, tabulated and interpreted in connection with a series of complicated regression charts," Overton explained. "A regression chart is one showing the relationship over the past 20 to 35 years of what has been reported in each county with what has taken place. "We ourselves travel extensively through the state during the few days prior to the crop-report date to observe, but we don't alter the reporters' estimates with ; out good reason." I The service forecast on the I basis of July 1 conditions that Iowa will produce its 2nd highest corn crop in history this year—a 58-bushel-pcr-acre yield totaling 624,602,000 bushels. 1 Forecasts Yield Overton noted that the service stresses in its early reports that the production estimate is subject to weather variations. The crop estimates of November and De cember are based on actual reported yield and vary no more than a bushel or 2 per acre from the crop census made the following spring. The livestock reporting service is a division of the federal department of agriculture, but it co-operates with the state department of agriculture, which furnishes some of its operating funds The service and the state department of agriculture also cooperate with the commerce dc- partment's weather bureau in putting out a weekly crop bulletin which makes no estimate of yield but merely gives a progress RED CARS RUN ON GAS i Moscow, (/P)—Russia is again making automobiles that run on gas. The machines were being manufactured before the war but this was halted with the German invasion. "Dawn of the East," which recently reported resumption of this work, said a 2nd tank having compressed gas and a reducing agent is necessary to operate an automobile normally running on gasoline by gas. No other changes are needed in the car. Waste from the coke-chemical industry is used as fuel for the gas burners. Former North lowan Dies in California Clarksville — John Hickle, 79, died at his home in Portersyille, Cal., Tuesday following a stroke according to word received here. He grew to manhood near Clarksville. Mr. Hickle was married to Abbie Gilbert in 1893. They farmed west of Clarksville until 1912 when they moved to Waterloo where he operated a grocery store for several years, then moved to California where his wife died 12 years ago.
