I] FEBRUARY 19 Hi 1934 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FIVE · TABULATORS BUSY CHECKING IOWA CORN-HOG CONTRACTS 205,000 FIGURES COUNTY AVERAGE Not All Grief and Worry of Campaign Is Confined to Farmers. MARENGO, Feb. 1C. UP)--Tabulators who have the job of checking 1 the figures in each cora-hog contract signed by Iowa farmers have pointed out that all the grief and woiTy o£ the signup program is not monopolized by the farmers and township committees that filled out the blanks. Each contract has spaces for a total of about 114 different figures, not to mention incidental signatures, explanatoy data and other items. That means in a county with 1,800 contract signers the tabulators have to con aome 205,000 figures. W. H Brower, one of the tabulators at Sig-ourney, said that the complete checking of each contract requirec an aveage of 90 distinct operations \Vorlc In Agents' Offices. From two to four tabulators are working in a number of Iowa court ty agents' offices already, and be fore" long will be functioning in al counties. They are hired by the of fice of Leslie M. Carl, federal statis tician in Des Molnes, aa a part o the corn-hog program macliiher_ and are under the local supervision of county agents, official represen tatives of the U. S. department o agriculture. If any figures in the contracts ar incorrectly filled out or incomplete the tabulators return them to th township committees where' eitiie the committee itself or the produce makes the necessary corrections. Production Is Checked. Certain of the figures arcs lain: lated from the contracts and sent to Car} 1 a office at Des Moincs where a crew of statisticians checks the production claimed in each coiicty with the actual total production. If the claimed production Is found to check with what could normally be expected for the number of farms represented, it is assumed that the farmers are aa accurate as humanly, possible. If, howevev, they are too high, a general downward adjustment of contracts in that county will be juacJe later by the county allotment committee on recommendations made to it by Carl's staff. This adjustment is made before the producer signs the contract in its final _.- .Jiorm.
