MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FEBRUARY 3 1931 $ ! ':^ IOWA PRODUCTION OF BUTTER INCREASES 140 PER CENT FARMERS USING BETTER METHODS Number of Cows in State Is Reported as Only 17 Per Cent Greater. AMES, Feb. 3f--Altho the number of cows in Iowa has Increased only 17 per cent since 1920, production of butter has increased 140 per cent, or almost double, R. K. Bliss, director o£ extension service at Iowa State college declared. The extension service has probably contributed considerably to this increase, Director Bliss stated. If this aid has only amounted to one per cent, or ?500,000 of the §50,- 000,000 increase, it would amount to more than enough to pay for all the state tax and the federal tax which goes to the support of the wortc. As an example Director Bliss cited the work la dairying. Thru the organization of, cow. testing associations, and the,promotion of better feeding' and management practices, the extension service has aided in increasing the average butterfat production a cow. The slogan has always been "Not more but fewer and better cows." · The animal husbandry specialties have important part in raising the average number of pigs raised a litter from 4.5 pigs in 1922 to 5.8 pigs in 1930. This means an increase of 1.3 pigs a sow, which in turn means that it would · require 500,000 fewer sows to produce 10 000,000 pigs than it would at ««e 1922 average. These savings amount to millions of dollars." v SPLIT OVER "SPLIT" Associated Press Photo Walter Dow Wright, a Waukegan, 111., squire, wouldn't join Avith ministers' association lind discourage marriage fee splitting with taxidrivers who brot couples to the Illinois "Grelna Green."

Iowa Boy Now is Strongest "TL/TY _son, Daniel, suffered with J.VJL his stomach and bo\ve!s until he was quite listless and weak," says Mrs. Floyd Wright, 2301 E. Wafnut St.. Des Moines. "Now it's.a different story as you can see from his picture. He s strong and full of life. I gave him California Fig Syrup because mother gave it to me. It increased jiis appetite, helped him wonderfully. Since then I have used California Fig Syrup myself as a laxative with much benefit." To show how California Fig Syrup acts to build up'and strengthen half- sick, headachy, constipated children through giving tone and strength to ·weak stomach and bowels, nothing could be more convincing than praise like this. Your doctor will approve the use of this pure vegetable product--as often as an impure breath, coated tongue, listiessness, fevcrishness or lack oi appetite warn of constipation--or to keep bowels from clogging during colds or children's diseases. When buying, look for the word California on carton and bottle. That marks the genuine.
