Taft, often called "America's most outstanding church layman," has been announced as the principal speaker at a special program at the Warren county fairgrounds Aug. 1 in connection with a soil conservation review at the Don Bellman farm near Indianola. ' The theme of the day will be "The Soil, the Gift of God" and this will also be the topic of Mr. Taft's talk at the fairgrounds that evening. Mr. Taft, the brother of Ohio Senator Robert A. Taft, lives in Cincinnati. He was instrumental in making Cincinnati's city government a model for the entire country and, in addition to his regular law practice, has been elected to the presidency of the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ In America.

Corn Detasseling Starts 70 Doys Early in Kossuth 500 in Fields by End of Week Pay Is 60c an Hour, Bonus and Overtime Algona — Corn detasseling got under way Monday. One hundred detasselers will be in the field and by the end of the week some 500 will be detasseling. Fields served by the local plant comprise some 1,950 acres in Kossuth and 850 acres in Palo Alto county. There are 550 more acres planted this year than last. The detasselers are mostly boys and girls from the county. The minimum age is 14 years and about 70 per cent of the workers are girls. Pay this year is 60 cents an hour with a bonus of 10 cents if workers remain through the season. Pay for Sunday work is 80 cents an hour. The company has 2 machines on which the detasselers may ride. They have been in operation several years but have not proved as good as the walking method. The machines are still in an experimental stage and are expensive to operate. It would require so many of them to cover the fields and when the fields are wet the mud creates a problem. Detasseling this year is starting 10 days earlier than last. The first tassels last year were pulled July 29.
