She . renorts that all delegates were 1 simulated to further develop the • organization of which they are a pa rt.

' Mrs David Foster—co-leader of Owen Farmerettes club accompanied the girls. All of the Cerro Gordo county delegation ' ived in Welch hall and ate their neals at Memorial Union. They found it hard to say just •which of the many events impressed them most but most included the concert recital by Mimi Benzell, of the Metropolitan Opera company. Miss Ben- rell appeared Wednesday eve- nin« and included in her per- £?mance arias from the "Barber of Seville," and "Porgy and Bess." . The girls also recall the m- spirafional talks by Doctor Gertrude Chittenden on 'Learning to Know Myself," Doctor_ Paulena Nichell, on "Learning to Live With My Family," and Mrs. Ray- 1Nei °- . »T_--i-~ii are members college staff CERRO GORDO FARM BUREAU President ....Earl M.

Mrs Thomas Crawford, form.-- er French opera singer, gave a performance which the de egates • fated "highly favorable Par- into the 4- years to state leader for --1946. , Dean H H. Kildee, director of the agricultural extension service asked them to urge more bovs and girls to become mern- be?s of 4-H clubs. The delegates expressed the idea that the convention in ^ entirety had increased their belief m 4-H work and they were returning with renewed vigor and enthusiasm. Of greatest surprise to the de 1 egates was the unexpected Presentation at the closing ses- fSn of the restyled 4-H uniform Constructed of deep blue-green club broadcloth, the uniform features a fly front, a 6-gored flared skirt and short sleeves. They hope that by the time next year's convention rolls around, every girl will be outfitted in the garment. The delegates have many new ideas concerning clothing, foods and nutrition and home furnishings which they hope they cai relate to their club members The convention closed Friday afternoon following the installation of the new state officer and the appearance of the 19th 4-H Girls' chorus. Each girl said that "she woulc certainly like to return for nex year's convention." Quack Grass Digger to Be at Field Day Quack grass may be flying, oots and all, at the Howard bounty Experimental Farm ield day Friday according to VTarion E. Olson, county exten- ion director. An experimental luack grass digger, designed to ear out the grass roots, will get he field day under way at 10 .m. Although the machine is till in the experimental stage of levelopment, it shows consider- ble promise. The digging dem- jnstration is expected to last mtil noon, and will be super- 'ised by the Flame Processing ^o. of Minneapolis, manufacturer if the machine. Field day visitors will also sec * demonstration on the proper vay to lay drain tile during the morning program. A tiling machine will be in operation and observations will be made on soils of the Howard county area while the proper methods of installing tile are -being illustrated, Farmers will have an opportun- ty to discuss their own drainage problems with Iowa State college agricultural engineers, according °A talk' by Dean H. H. Kildee of Iowa State college has been scheduled for the noon program. Lunch will be served on the iarm at noon. In the afternoon visitors can inspect part of the experimental work being done with small grains, fertilizers, contour cultivation and weed spraying. There will be an open discussion on conservation practices, including contouring, grassed wa.- erways and a display of contour cultivation equipment. Crop rotation, lime and fertilizer experiments will be seen. Pasture seedings and grazing tnals will be the last stop on the program, which ends at 4 p.m. _ The experimental farm is located midway between Cresco and Riceville .on highway 9, 3; miles west of Davis Corners. If crop yields are average this summer, feed grains will be more plentiful and feed costs lower this coming fall and winter, Iowa State college economists say. K olumn omments Swine producers short on feed can use good quality new oats to carry the hog crop along until this year's corn is available. The seedbed for the summer garden needs careful, thorough preparation. Remove all old, exhausted plants, work the area well and pulverize the soil to make a fine-textured planting bed. 4 * * The week of July 25-31 has been set as National Farm Safety week. Every American farm family is urged to eliminate at least one possible source of accidents during the week. * * * Hornflies, those little black pests clinging to cattle and other livestock, can be controlled by applying a 0.5 per cent DDT spray at the rate of one to 2 quarts per animal every 14 to 21 days. * * * Clean out grain bins, destroy the sweepings and spray the empty bins with either DDT emulsion or DDT wettable powder top revent damage to new grain from stored grain insects * * * Thistles in oats can be killed by applying a heavy dosage 01 2,4-D after harvest. Wait until the regrowth is 8 to 10 inche: high, then put on li pounds o: amine or salt form or 1 pound of the ester per acre. Remember new legume seedings are sensitive to 2,4-D. 23 before Combining Let Oats Dry in Windrow Iowa farmers may find it to heir advantage to windrow some of the newer varieties of oats and combine from the wind- •ows. Many of the new oat types mature unevenly, say Iowa State college agronomists. By wind- rowing, farmers will get a more complete ripening and the moisture content will be cut down. This will lessen the chance of heating the bin. Other instances where wind- rowing may be advantageous in small grain are: If green weeds interfere with the operation of the combine; if there is a chance of the grain going down; to get heavy crop growth off or new seedings of grass and legumes; and if the crop matures unevenly as is often the case with flax, A reporting service has been set up by Iowa State college to keep Iowa farmers informed on danger of corn borer infestation in this year's corn crop.
