MORE COW TESTING TO BE DONE IN IOWA NOW Dairy cow testing work in Iowa is definitely on the upswing, report Iowa State College dairy specialists. During the war some dairy herd- improvement associations had to suspend operations because their cow testers were called into the armed forces. Now, many of these men are coming back to their jobs. The dairymen say that members of associations which stopped testing work are anxious to resume operations. They found out in the past that accurate records are the best way to evaluate the herd. The production records serve as a guide to feeding, breeding and herd culling. Membership in a dairy herd-improvement association also gives the farmers an opportunity to compare their production records with those of other farmers receiving the same service. In that way the level of the entire dairy industry in the state' is raised. There is need for additional cow testers in the state, and men who would like to learn more about the work should write the Agricultural Extension Service at Iowa State College. PROOF OF WILL.

IT IS EASY TO DROWN NEW CHRISTMAS PLANT You can drown a Christmas plant with a cupful of water, according to Larry Grove, extension horticulturist at Iowa State College. Of course, he says, n lot of "ifs" go along with that statement. But over watering Christmas plants is a common fault. Especially if excess water has no chance of running out of the container at the bottom. Gift plants often are wrapped in oilcloth, tinfoil or other waterproof material. Cut a small hole in the bottom of the wrappings to let the water drain through. Saucers under the flower pots sometimes hold the water in the pot, giving the flower too much water. Raise the plant slightly above the saucer with small blocks or square sticks. Iowa's soil produces more wealth each year than all the gold mines of the world. PROOF OF WILL.

Douglass Pharmacy Postville, Iowa Left To Write By Lou Gardner (Opinions expressed in this column are those of the writer nnd do not necessarily conform to the editorial policy of this newspaper.) Promote Or Demote? The Trumnn administration, represented by Henry Wallace, Willinm L. Clnyton nnd Carl Vinson, hns completed n settlement with Great Britain on lense-lend accounts. Reduced to a neighborhood transaction the settlement amounts to this: Bill Jones hnd some dealings years ago with John Smith, the locnl banker, as a result of which nfter 25 years he still owed the banker $43 plus interest of $1.76. They had occasion after n quarter of a century to engage in give-and-take transactions to the extent of $250. When they settled up this latest deal, nothing wns said about the old obligation. On the new account Bill Jones owed the banker a balance of $50. He claimed he did not have the money to pay it. Bill made a tender of $6.50 in settlement of the bnlnnce due on condition that the bnnker loan him the money to p..y the $6.50, nnd nt the \ same time give him n drawing account nt the bank in the amount of $37. John Smith, strangely enough, accepted this settlement and nothing was said about the old obligation. This local transaction is the British loan settlement reduced to neighborhood size. It is that settlement reduced from the enormous figures of 25 billions in lease-lend exchange, 5 billions in n balance due. a settlement of 650 millions by the British with money loaned from Uncle Sam, and an extension over the coming six years of loans to the British in the aggregate of 3,750 millions. And who do you suppose happens to be the bnnker in this international settlement? You guessed it. He is the same Uncle Sam who 25 years ago was called Uncle Shylock for trying to get a settlement which now—twenty-five years later—still remains unpaid. If you wer>. on the Board of Directors with the banker who made the Smith-Jones settlement, what would you do with him—promote or demote? Don't say it. We understand. A Republican Habit. Running state business without go­ ing into debt Is a Republican habit In Iowa. To make public improvements from accumulated funds . la not new In the history of Republican management of Iowa affairs. Bnck In 1870 the people of lown determined that a new stnlc cnpitol wns needed. They hnd tired of the structure which had been built by Des Moines people to invite removal of the cnpitol from lown City in 1857. A cnpitol commission wns formed. Construction wns started on n new building without resort to either contracts or bond issues. A competent superintendent wns put on the job. The building wns built, nnd finally occupied nnd dedicated in 1884. This building, now a monument to the finest of craftsmanship, ns welt ns a symbol of honest work, cost three million dollars. Historians, writing in 1904, told us: "This great work was completed without i\i whisper of scandal or unfriendly criticism, and stands as n splendid monument to the honor, integrity nnd ability of Its builders ond nil in any degree nssocinted with them." The outstanding feature of the beautiful old capitol and that which we started to relate is that not a dollar of indebtedness was Incurred in its construction. The legislature—from biennium to blennium—appropriated the funds from current revenue that were j needed to keep construction under way. Six Republican governors served on the commission during the fourteen years between the stnrtlng of construction and the dedication of the building. These Republican governors were Samuel Merrill, Cyrus C. Carpenter, Samuel J. Kirkwood, Joshua G. Ncwbold, John H. Gear nnd Buren R. Sherman. Thus the setting aside during the past few years of over two millions of, dollars for n new office building t, well as some twelve or thirteen ml). Hons of dollars for other public build, lngs. Is not new In the methods th« Republicans have followed In manag. Ing state affairs In Iowa during 70 of the 88 years that have Intervened since the party came to power in this state in 1858. During that 88 years thert! hns been democratic control of atatt affairs only nine years. Here is a record of management and i thrift In striking contrast to the record I of the federal government in Washington. Chaos and waste there run rampant. The government is 275 fall, lions in the red. The same democratic party which nursed the Now Deal ond hns brought us to the verge of nation, nl bankruptcy Is 9t\U following tn c fallacious idea that wo can spend and' waste ourselves' into prosperity. I The whole philosophy of Iowa, in industry, in labor, In business and in the transaction of public affairs, runs I contrary to such practices. SHOULD TREAT GLADIOLUS NOW TO RID THE BULBS OF TIIRIfS Here's a treatment, prescribed bj Iowa State College horticulturists, for destroying thrips—a form of small, sucking insect—underneath the hush of gladiolus bulbs: Place the bulbs in paper sacks, and add 4 level tablespoonfuls of naphthalene flakes for every 100 bulbs. Make the sacks air tight. Fumigate for 4 weeks, then separate the itakts! from the bulbs. j Treatment should be done in Del comber or January. Bulbs treated late I may be injured when they come out nil their dormnney. s The infestation of chinch bugs ufi very light in'Iowa this fall so tlutnsf widespread trouble is expected frotrj'' them next year.
