" FARM KERNELS. Feed chicks as soon as they arrive from the hatchery. There will be less loss than if they are held off feed over 48 hours, Iowa State College poultry specialists say. • * * • • Cover the litter with paper when baby chicks are first placed in the brooder house. This is necessary until the chicks have learned where to get their feed. They will pick up litter unless it is covered. Poultry raisers are assured of a support price this year for poultry weighing 3"v pounds and over. • » * » • Farmers in the future may dust crops for insect control by airplanes, predicts Harold Gunderson. extension entomologist of Iowa State College. It may be important, he believes, in corn borer control. • • « » • Grow plenty of legumes this year— soybeans—and use grass silage to be sure of plenty of protein for dairy cows, advises C. Y. Cannon, head of dairy husbandry at Iowa State College. The kind of fertilizer used is just as important as the amount used, says Dr. W. H. Pierre, head of agronomy at Iowa State College. There are many different kinds and grades of commercial fertilizer, so make sure that you buy and use the kind, you need. ***** Supply shortages and other problems face beekeepers who are trying to increase their number of colonies to help meet Iowa's agricultural production goal in bees. But the problems can be overcome by early planning for next season. Raspberries thrive on rich, sandy soil. Spring is the best time to set them out. Fifty bearing plants will provide from 35 to 75 quarts of fruit. • * • * • Dairy production payments this year will be continued through June on the same basis as last year. ***** Laying hens need lots of calcium. If they do not get enough from what they eat, then they draw it from their bones, the egg shells become thin and the hen may eventually quit laying.

Iowa trappers harvested the second most valuable fur crop in the history of the state during the 1945-'46 trapping season, according to F. T. Schwob director of the State Conservation Commission. During the 30-day muskrat and mink, and 60-day open season on other protected fur bearing animals, total of 624,565 furs valued at $2,630,655.71 were taken. There were 13,537 licensed trappers during the season, plus approximately an equal number who trapped on their own land, where no license is required. Mink, for the first time, exceeded in total value the muskrat, which in the past has been the number one fur bearing animal. Mink commanded the highest average price ever recorded ($28.16) with individual pelts reaching the almost unbelievable maximum of $40.00 each. Only two fur bearers, red fox and coyote, decreased in value in 1946, the rest increased. Except for beaver which increased from $22.00 to $35.73 and mink which increased from $16.15 to S28.16, the price raises were slight. The total number of animals trapped decreased during the current season some 30,477 individuals. Decreases were recorded for opposum, muskrat, skunk and badger; increases for racoon, mink, civet, red fox, weasel, coyote and beaver. Iowa's annual fur crop exceeded Alaska's in value this year by more than one million dollars, proving once again that our great "corn and hog state," can, and does grow game. BOTH GET HOMES. Frank Starry and Frank Pealer were trying to buy the same residence in th town of Wyoming. Pealer obtained it but when he learned that Starry want ed it, he sold it to the latter. Starry now is planning to remodel the house and both the Starry and Pealer famil ies will live in it. Demand for farm products seems likely to remain at about its present high level during most of 1946.

So much is heard about food production records during the war that we are surprised to read a report in the Chicago Drovers' Journal showing how much fewer meat animals there are per capita (not including chickens) than there were following the other world war, says the Marshalltown Times-Republican. For every - 1.000 persons in this country now there are 143 fewer hogs, 101 fewer sheep and lambs, 12 fewer milk cattle, and 98 fewer other cattle than after World War I. The livestock population now stands at 445 hogs per 1,000 people, compared with 588 in the postwar year of 1919; 191 milk cattle, compared with 203 ; 378 other cattle, against 476, and 316 sheep and lambs, against 417. With nearly 12 million in the armed forces to be fed while the war was on and millions of pounds of meat supplied to our allies thru lend-lease we can see how .the meat supply would run low unless there was encouragement to hog, cattle and sheep feeders to raise to the very limit. Apparently government monkeying has cost us much in the way of moat for our own tables and for the tables of those who are starving in Europe. We know what the war food administration did to hog production when war demand was at its height. The vision that livestock men ought to outdo even high records in meat production was sadly dimmed by federal control. IN THE DISTRtCT COURT OF IOWA.

Expansive Industry When war broke out in Europe, the motor industry was using a preponderant share o! the production of many raw materials: 51 per cent of malleable iron, 75 per cent of plate glass, 68 per cent of upholstery leather and 80 per cent of rubber. In addition, the automobile took more than 18 per cent of the steel output, approximately 10 per cent of aluminum, some 13 per cent of copper and 34 per cent of lead.
