Surpluses of Other Training School Studies Home Furnishing Fabric* The first training school of the fourth year home furnishing; course was held in Plattrille township Monday. Sept. 25, at the home of Mrs. John Bantrup. Miss Nora Workman, extension specialist from towa State college, conducted the lesson. Mrs. Lee Roland, county chairman of women's work, came with Miss Workman to help us with the organization work for our community. The subject of the first lesson was "Home Furnishing Fabrics." We were taught how to test different materials such as: wool, silk, linen, and cotton, so we may know when we are getting the pure material or when it la a mixture. Samples of the materials were given each leader to test. The second training school lesson will be held Nov. 20 and will be at the home of Mrs. Ralph May. Mrs. Lafe Lincoln, reporter. That land withdrawn from production of basic crops under the contracts In the national reduction programs must be han- i died In strict accord with both | the letter and the spirit of the contracts Is Indicated In a recent statement by J. F. Cox, chief of the replacement crop section of the Agricultural Adjustment Administration. These retired acres may be handled usefully In accordance with a number of approved practices, but they must not be planted to any crop which will contribute directly or indirectly to the general surplus. "There can be no ultimate solution of the surplus problem if production Is reduced In one crop, merely to permit ruinous In- i creases In others," said Mr. Cox In discussing the question. "Some might think that farmers would be better off If permitted very lenient options In the use of the land withdrawn from production of basic crops, but In the long run such a policy would inevitably lead to defeat of the great effort at surplus reduction. The farmers themselves would be the losers. "Under the wheat, cotton, and other programs, farmers are given cash adjustment payments to make it possible for them to reduce and order their production in line with effective demand, without loss of Immediate cash Income. The payments are made In order that acres may be withdrawn from production — really retired and held In cold storage. "The withdrawn acres are already producing a crop in the form of adjustment payments.

Such plants as columbine, delphinium. Iris, Shasta daisies, pyrethrum. coreopsis, and dayllly may be divided and reset. It Is a little bit late for poppies now but they may be reset with reasonable hope for success, say the horticulturists. A light litter of well-rotted manure, straw or leaves over the bulbs after the first heavy frost will help to keep them safely through the winter. Dividing the clumps may be done with a sharp knife or spade. Three eyes should be saved in each section for planting. Set the cuttings 2 or 3 Inches below the surface of the ground. effort to take off another cast crop from these minions of acres which are being retired in the great national programs would certainly work against the farmers' own goal of lowered surpluses and restored buying power. "Hundreds of thousands oi farmers, all over the United States, are signing the redaction contracts in good faith, with the understanding that the retired acres will not be used to Increase surpluses in other crops. The action of those Who might not understand the fundamental purposes of the reduction program must not be permitted to nullify their efforts."
