By PORTER M. HEDGE. AMES, July 11. yp»--The kerne! of a potential new com belt farm program is being put to what might be called a germination test this week. The rough delineat'" 1 - -' ? -ed farm program, drawn up at Iowa State college last week L/ 25 Iowa farmers and experiment station workers, are being applied on paper to between 1,250 and 2,500 individual farms. The results of this "germination test" will determine whether the kernel will wither and die or fill out and sprout a stalk that will bear new agricultural adjustment ears. ' Will Discus* Results. The 25 farmers will meet at Ames again Monday to discuss the results of these tests, which are being taken in every farming section of Iowa. They hope to produce from this second conference a definite, practical outline of a new farm program. M. L. Wilson, assistant secretary of agriculture, and H. R. ToUey, chief of the AAA planning division, have been invited to sit in on this conference. In its present hazy outlines, as gleaned from experiment station workers and conferees (the sessions were closed to reporters), the projected program is a modification of the present one on a regional basis. Plan Benefit Payments. Its goal is good farming. Benefit payments would be made on the basis of adjustments which brinf about good farming practices. The conference prepared a com adjustment schedule for each type of farming area in Iowa. A farmer would be required to keep within MAKING FURNITURE BARGAIN HISTORY!

PHONE 3910 300 Will Participate in Music Festival at Iowa City Next Week IOWA CITY, July 11.--A midsummer festival of music, which includes more than 300 participants in vocal and instrumental groups, will occur at the University of Iowa next week. Under the direction of Prof. Philip G. Clapp, head of the music department, concerts will be presented on three evenings as the closing musical events of the summer session's first term. The summer session chorus and orchestra, each the largest in big' tory, will give their joint concert Sunday evening. On Tuesday evening the all state high school chorus of more than 50 voices will offer its final concert, and the 80 piece all state orchestra will play Wednesday evening. Each of the events will be broadcast by station WSUI beginning at 8 p. m. the limits of his adjustment schedule in order to come into the program. Thus, it would be impossible for a farmer who was "over-corning" his soil, to join the program unless he adjusted his corn production to conform with the productive ability of his land. 2 Possibilities Proposed. The possibility of making the ultimate plan a grass land program was considered. The fanners put forth two definite possibilities: One was to require that land retired from corn production be seeded to grasses and legumes, and that benefit payments be based on the grass seedlings. Other grass land might be put into small grain. The other was that retired corn acreage be seeded to grass, in addition to the land already in grass. The farmers said this kind of a program would require a hay grass adjustment base, and at least a two year contract. Asked for Assistance. The farm administration will take whatever plan is finally proposed for what it is worth. More than a year ago the AAA asked Iowa -State college to assist in planning for the next adjustment program. After spending a year in collecting data essential a comprehensive study of agricultural adjustment, .he college called in these farmers to get the 'grass roots" slant. Some of the farmers are chairmen of their county corn-hog committees. The others are progressive 'armers who have no direct AAA affiliation. They are paid expenses for he time they spend in planning work. Arrive Hour Early. A farmer is a farmer no matter where he is, and those attending the AAA conference at Ames couldn't discard tie habits of a lifetime just jecause they were working on a possible new farm program. The meetings were scheduled from 9 a. m. to 5 p. m. Nearly every day of the conference the 25 farmers arrived about an hour early. And in the evening, after work, they leld further discussions in one of the college dormitories where they stayed. CLARION PIG IS SENT TO ITftLY Shipped to Italian Breeder for Improvement of Swine.

WORK RELIEF IN WINNEBAGO ENDS AS LOAD DROPS Families With Employable Men Will No Longer Receive Aid. FOREST CITY, July 11.--Work relief stopped in Winnebago county Thursday with the handing out of the weekly payroll checks. This is true in all families where there is an employable man. Where the heads of families are women unable, to work, direct relief will be given when necessary. Where there is no one employable in the family, the families have been made county ;ases. This is the result of the gradual cutting 'down of the state relief extended and also to the fact that there is much work to be had in the county by those who want it. Besides the many building projects under way, there is need for men in the fields, haying and plowing, soon there will be harvesting, and after that fall plowing and corn picking. Some commodities are still being given out, however, as butter and meat have come in recently from previous allotments. Cans to te used in canning will soon be available. Work relief in the county rose trom the zero mark in March 1933 to 78 the following January. In August of 1934 there were 124 on the payrolls, and on Jan. 1, 1935, the number had mounted to 194. The bigh mark of all months was reached in February of that year with a total of 226. By May it had dropped to 177, by June 1 to 143, and now the middle of July finds it practically back to where things were in March of 1931.
