Early potatoes are pouring into the markets by the bushel. In fact. Francis Kutish. Iowa State College economist, says this year's crop is likely to top last year's record production of almost 65 million bushels. There's a promise that the new potatoes will be high in quality and reasonable in price, according to Kutish. But he says they should be used soon after harvest as they are too perishable for storage. This may be an added incentive to "reach for a potato instead of bread." CUT HAY EARLY TO GET TOP QUALITY AND YIELD Much of Iowa's hay crop is cut too late to obtain the maximum amount of good quality feed, states H. D. Hughes, head of farm crops at Iowa State College. Delayed cutting, he says, reduces the amount of protein. Also it may lower the yield if leaves drop off, leaching occurs or insects damage the crop. Highest yield usually is obtained when clovers are cut at about the full bloom stage. To get a hay with the highest protein content it is desirable to start cutting clover hays when they are in the half-bloom stage. In addition to getting the best quality hay from earlier cutting the chances of obtaining a larger second crop and high seed yield are greater when clover is cut at the suggested time. Harvest of mixtures of clover and timothy should be delayed about 10 days after the best time for harvesting clover, Hughes says. The best quality alfalfa will result if cutting starts when the crop is one-tenth to one-half in bloom. Alfalfa, like the clovers, reaches its highest level of protein content in the early bloom stage. Later cutting results in a coarser, less palatable hay. Fish, like humans, get seasick if left to the mercy of the waves for an extended period. When chicks are eight weeks old they should start getting whole grain along with mash.

Historic Society Has , Manv Centennial Stories Since most Iowa editors are planning centennial editions for their readers in 1946 it is fortunate that long- range planning on the part of the State Historical Society has made available hundreds of articles relating to Iowa history. These articles, and the tools with which they are readily found, will prove invaluable to editors, teachers.' reference librarians, centennial speakers, and to anyone interested in the story of Iowa. They can be found in any tax-supported j public library or college library in j Iowa. Illustrative of this material is the "Iowa Number" of "The Palimpsest." published in October. 1924, and containing articles on Iowa, the Iowa banner, and the seals, mottoes, slogans, and songs of Iowa. The twelve numbers of "The Palimpsest" for 19IU) contain a wealth of material on such varied subjects as art and drama, music, literature, science, politics and war. agriculture and agricultural journalism, aviation, colleges, and religion. All numbers of "The Palimpsest" fur 1938 featured "Iowa in 1838" and offer an historical feast for Iowans interested in our territorial beginnings. The numbers for 1946 are featuring the state centennial. The State Historical Society also publishes "The Iowa Journal of History and Politics." which contains a number of articles of general interest along centennial lines. Among these Dr. William J. Petersen's "Some Beginnings in Iowa," in January. 1930; "The Iowa Territorial Centennial." in January, 1939; and "A Day by Day- Calendar of Historical Events in Iowa" in April and July, 1946. Dr. Ruth A. Gallaher has also contributed three centennial articles: "The First Hundred Years," in October, 1933; "A Decade of Iowa Centennials," in July, 1937, and "This Iowa," in January. 1941. It should be pointed out that many of the stories in "The Palimpsest" are just the right length for feature ar tides in special centennial numbers issued by Iowa newspapers. Editors and writers on Iowa history will find Petersen's "A Reference Guide to Iowa History" invaluable in guiding them to almost any phase of the state and local scene which they may wish to explore. They will also find an index- to the first twenty volumes of "The Palimpsest" in their local libraries. The first forty volumes of "The Iowa Journal of History an Politics" have likewise been indexed. Keokuk Lantern Club Served Useful Purpose Shortlv afl«r eight o'clock on the evening of October 19. 1908. n terrific blast rocked the city of Keokuk to its foundations. Streets and homes were plunged into darkness, and it was soon apparent that an explosion had occurred at the Keokuk Eltotric Light and Power Plant located at the foot of North Twelfth .Street. Investigation revealed that a giant fly wheel attached to one of the generators had exploded, killing one man and causing considerable damage. Officials announced it would be weeks before streets and homes would be lighted once more. Two members of the Gate City staff facetiously organized the Keokuk Lantern Chili, with "Jack O. Lantern" as president and "Oil Kami" as secretary. Members of this Keokuk Lantern Club were pledged to set out lanterns on the streets at night until electric serv ice was restored. Those who lived on the corner of a street and would hang out lanterns were to be known as "star members" while those who lived in the middle of the block were designated as "active members." Suggested as a joke the club grew from 17 members to over five hundred in a week. The obituary of the club appeared in the Gate City for December 18th, when its journalistic founders announced it was officially disbanded. During its existence the Keokuk Lantern Club proved to be of no small benefit to the citizens in keeping their streets at least partly lighted in the emergency and helping to keep down such petty crimes as amateur hold-ups and purse snatching which might easily have nourished in darkened streets The story of the Keokuk Lantern Club is told by Frederic C. Smith in the April issue of "The Palimpsest." the monthly publication of the State Historical Society of Iowa.

I wish to thank the voters of Allamakee county for their splendid support given me at the. primary election on June 3. I assure you that your actions in my behalf are greatly appreciated. OTTO H. FOSSUM Clerk of District Court DEMOCRATIC AVALANCHE CUl'SHF.l) WHIGS IN 1864 Politics seethed and boiled in Iowa a century ago. On January 17. 1846. the Legislative Assembly passed an act calling for the election by the people of thirty-two delegates to a constitutional convention at the township elections in April. These delegates were directed to meet at Iowa City on the first Monday of May. 1840. "and proceed to form a Constitution, and State Government for the future State of Iowa." The weeks preceding the April election found Whigs and Democrats hurling taunts at each other. In 1846 Iowa was predominately Democratic in its politics, consequently it is not surprising that the Burlington "Hawk-Eye," a Whig organ, should call for non-partisan elections. The Iowa City "Capitol Reporter" replied by branding the Whigs a "no-party party" and urged the Democrats to "organize" in order to elect delegates to form a genuine democratic constitution for the future state. Van Buren County did nominate two Democrats and one Whig, subsequently electing them as delegates. In Des Moines County the Whigs had to resort to subterfuge when they urged a few Democrats to vole for G. W. Bowie just "in fun." When the votes were counted DANCE RAINBOW GARDENS Waterville, Iowa Wed., June 12 Music By LES HARTMANN and his WMT Iowa Cornhuskcrs COMING—WEI)..
