Mormons To Retrace Old Trail In Two Days LATEST REPORT SHOWS FISIIKR1ES TOTALS HIGH FARMER SHOULD FIGURE FEED COSTS WITH CARE With the government trying to save all possible grain for shipment to foreign countries. Iowa farmers are finding feed costs and livestock prices coming closer together. Lauren Soth. Iowa State College farm economist, says the time is past when farmers can pour grain into stock without thinking of the costs. All feed costs are up, and some feeds are more expensive than others. Average prices and average feeding values show that corn is still about the cheapest grain feed. On a ton basis, for example, oats cost the farmer S3.50 more than corn, but are worth $6.70 a ton less to feed. Wheat and rye also are considerably more expensive to feed than corn. Among high protein feeds, linseed meal appears to be somewhat cheaper in relation to feeding value than soybean meal. Where available, tank­ age is cheap compared with either linseed or soybean meal. The cheapest of all feeds is hay. Soth points out that hay is cheaper in relation to other feeds than it has been any time in recent years. At present prices, alfalfa is a cheaper feed than either clover and timothy mixed hay. The use of a maximum amount of hay- in livestock rations will do the most to cut feed costs, Soth concludes. LARGE RESERVOIR OF WASTED FOOD If hay is cut. the value is reduced. It is higher in protein cut early. POLICE SAFETY POSTER "Check your Driving — Check your Car — Check Accidents," is the theme of the Police Traffic Safety Check, sponsored by the International Association of Chiefs of Police, starting May 15. Traffic accidents took 28,500 lives, injured a million persons, in 1946. The toll for 1946 will be much larger—unless every driver accepts his responsibility to drive safely in a safe car. In the pail under the kitchen sink in homes across the country lies wasted food for millions. America throws away the richest garbage in the world while 500 million people are starving overseas. Housewives can help ! The greatest reservoir of extra food is in the amount we waste. Don*t fill the plates with what the family won't eat. Don't cook more than the plates can hold. Teach your family to "lick the platter clean." Treasure bread crusts for bread puddings and stuffing. Save fats and oils by serving fewer fried foods. Practice food economy at every meal so the underprivileged of Europe and Asia may become healthy human beings- Just the food we waste will ease their pangs of hunger and the degradation which trails in the wake of famine. Food is the most powerful political force of our times. Our future way of life may depend upon the help we now render Europe and Asia. The easiest way not only to help feed- the starving millions overseas, but also to stretch our food supplies here at home, is to watch what goes into that pail under the sink. Wasted food that goes into the garbage pail feeds no one. IOWA GREYHOUNDS GO EAST FOR RACING 23 greyhounds, owned by Art Wilson, Dow City, have headed for the eastern race tracks.

A group of Mormon church members from Salt Lake City will retrace the 100-year-old Mormon trail through southern Iowa July 17-18, covering in two days the route that Brigliam Young's followers took live months to travel in 1846. The church party, led by George Albert Smith, president of the Mormons, will travel by auto. A century ago. the Mormon pilgrims made the long and arduous trip across Iowa in wagons and carts—on horseback and on foot. Religious and civic celebrations are being planned along (he route in honor of the Mormon leaders making the trip this summer. The itinerary includes Keokuk and Montrose July 17, with an overnight stop at Ottumwa. The next day the party will visit Garden Grove and Mount Pisgah and stop overnight in Council Bluffs.

On May 18. they arrived at Mount Pisgah. near Afton in what is now Union County, and established a permanent Camp of Israel. Later, most of the pilgrims moved on westward, reaching the Missouri River on June 14. Of the Mormons who slaved at Mount Pisgah. 800 succumbed to hardship and disease between 1846 and 1852.

It didn't pay to shear feeding lambs in tests at the Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station, Ames, the past fall and winter. Dance RAINBOW GARDENS Waterville, Iowa t Wed., June 26 — Music By — MOELLER'S ACCORDION BAND COMING—WED., JULY 3 Les Hartmann's Cornhuskers Tom Powell, editor of the Anamosa Journal and an ex-navy lieutenant, sounds off about the new Iowa song as follows in last week's Journal: Our hats are olT to Iowa's Centennial committee for their selection of "Iowa" as the official Centennial ballad. Song, written by Meredith Willson, former Mason City resident and now a band leader of national prominence, captures Iowa's personality in the lyrics. Song has earned a deep place in this writer's heart ever since he first heard j Bing Crosby sing it over the radio one night while sitting in a hut on the Russell islands in the South Pacific while serving with a Navy aviation gunnery training unit. Weary of the "magic" of the famed South Sea tropical isles with their palm fronds in the moonlight and the white plumed surf breaking over coral beaches—lonesome for home and fam- | ily back in Iowa after almost a year overseas—you can only guess a', the heart throbs the song gave when sung as only Bing can sing it. "IOWA, it's a beautiful name—When you say it like we say it back home. It's the robin in the willows—It's the postmaster's friendly hello. IOWA, it's a beautiful name—You'll remember it wherever you roam: It's the sumac in September—It's the squeak of your shoes in the snow. It's the Sunday School and the old river bend—Songs on the porch after dark; It's the picnic ground and the whippoorwill's call—Acorns and dew on the lawn; It's the corner store and a penny to spend—You and your girl in the park. It's the County Fair and the Odd Fellows Hall—Meeting the circus at dawn. • IOWA, it's a beautiful name—When you say it like we say it back home. It's a promise for tomorrow—And a Mcm'ry of long, long ago. IOWA, what a beautiful name- When you say it like we say it back home." ^3 Roosts should be provided for chicks when they are a month old.
