Just as our grandfathers talked of the Revolutionary period and our fathers of the Civil Wat era, so our children will refer back to 1933. The greatest social changes in the history of our nation are now taking place. Europe sits spell-bound at America's daring. We ourselves are almost too dated to realize the transition. We are changing from an individualistic society to one of cooperation. There will be anxious moments In this changing process, but those who have adopted the philosophy of John Dewey in regarding each experience, whether happy or sad, as something to enrich one's life, will benefit most from this experiment. There is too much humanity in the world for this experiment not to succeed. We may falter on the way, but the American people have never known the meaning of the word fail. Frankly, we would rather live In 1933 than In any period in the history of America. For the first time we have a patriotic call without girding ourselves to kill. That In Itself would mark out the year 1933 as an historic twelve months. — Independent, Littleton, Colo, Washington announces promotions in enlisted grades of the Navy will be resumed this month in most of tbe ratings, \ The dirigible Macon carries five fast single seat biplanes, with wing spans of 25 feet 6 inches.

It follows the temporary adjustments In corn and hog prod act Ion effected this season by abnormal weather and by the emergency hot marketing program recently concluded. the Benefit payments are In •ddltfon to any increased market prices that may result frott reducing the surplus ot com and hogs, the government wilt obtain the money tor these payments from processing taxes en both corn and hogs, beginning with the marketing year, which starts in November. The initial processing tat on bogs wilt be 60 cents per hundred of live weight and becomes effective Nov. 6. On Dec. 1 It wilt go to $1; to $1.50 on Jan. 1, and to the $2 maximum Feb. 1. tt wilt remain at this rate through the hog marketing years of 1933-34 and 1934-35. The processing tax on corn, in an amount yet to her determined, will affect only corn processed commercially. Hearings on compensating taxes that.may be levied on commodities competing with hogs and com and their products are scheduled tor Oct. 30 and Not. 2, respectively, , The entire program will be started as soon as possible but it will be several weeks before it is in full swing. The program will follow the general procedure of the wheat reduction plan with contracts to be signed catling for reduction of the two crops. County corn-bog production control associations will be formed to administer the program wherever it is in effect. Each farmer who agrees to make the minimum adjustments in his corn and hog production for 1934, as provided under this plan, win receive benefit payments on the following basis: A — Rental, at the rate of 30 cents per bushel of the average production of corn during the three-year base period, for each acre removed from corn production Upon arrangements with his local production control association. Upon arrangements with bis to take out of corn production more than tbe minimum 20 per cent ot his average acreage during the past three years, but in no case leas than the required 20 per cent B — Adjustment payments of f 5 per bead (f 2 on acceptance of contract; f 1 about Sept. ,1. 1884, and IX "about Feb. 1, 1MR) on the number of bogs equivalent to 76 per cent of the average number of bogs farrowed on the farm operated by the contracting grower during the two-year base period, To qualify for these payments the contracting grower also must agree not to increase for next year the number of bogs bought and fed for market above the average for the two-year base period. A maximum of approximately 1180,000,000 will be available for distribution in" initial adjustment payments to participating farmers as soon as possible after the Secretary of Agriculture accepts tbe contracts. Although tbe corn- bog production section of the Administration will proceed without delay under immediate direction of Dr. A, G.

Leader* to Work with County Agents With the official announcement of the corn-hog program, Iowa farmers, who are among the na- tion's' leading producers of corn and hogs, are preparing to take a major part In tbe federal ad' ministration's efforts to restore tbe lost purchasing power of farm — t*** ft«t at fro-ft <ft to 45 ftegftis *i>a they tHriftf id products. Temporary county and town- the program to every In the state. County will work with these ship leaders are being selected to help in bringing Information con eerning farmer agents leaders. R. K. Bliss, director of the Extension service at Iowa State college, last week received word that extension workers would be expected to do the educational and organixatton work necessary in starting the program. As in the wheat campaign tbe administration expects to hold down expenses by using established agencies of the United States Department of Agriculture. Extension workers will explain the plan to county agents who in turn will call meetings of, corn and bog producers in every township. After the plan baa been explained farmers wbo sign applications will meet to organise their county corn-bog production control association and elect officers. This group will be in cbargt of approving applications.,and contracts, publishing, allotments cal newspapftrs M.mnirwby th* farm adjustment' act, and -other executive details. Membership in the county association will consist entirely of corn and oof producers. Like the wheat program the new venture will be "farmer controlled." Director Bliss explained that the corn-bog program propose* to Increase the corn-bog income, and return to the farmer a purchasing power equal to that of 1910-14. or "parity price," Parity price will be secured by planning production to meet domestic demands and by government purchase of surplus stocks, it such la deemed uece»*ary, The first step in planning production, as provided for in the new plan, Is the reduction — by farmers who sign contracts «*«• of pigs produced or marketed by $6 per cent and reduction of acreage 20 per cent for 193*, Farmers who agree to reduce production will receive a benefit payment which will them for the reduced produeUoa and help Increase purchasing power Immediately.

L. Anderson of the Iowa State College Animal Husbandry department, said in an interview recently. This market shortage bas been predicted by economists because most of the pigs removed from trade channels by the bog production control measures of the government would ordinarily bit the market between February and April, It will probably be unwise to carry bogs to heavy weights,'Professor Anderson aaid, not only because the federal program will probably discrimlnattt / again*t the heavier, animals, but,because the domestic-demand Is for •* lean ''~~ ,&> t.* L 5^Sll*- V*l v . .»irw»- denon declared, "that; we f must produce largely with the domestic market in mind. This means not only that we must reduce total production but tbat we must produce a leaner type of bog," Limited feeding until midwinter may be advisable with sboats that would normally be self-fed and finished late in November or December, said Professor Anderson.
