Some 2,000 notices of township corn-hog program elections were mailed from the office of County Agent Marion E.

These 16 township meetings in Cerro Gordo county will be held Monday for the election of township committees. The chairmen of the township committees .will make up the county board of directors. Vote by Ballot. Mr. Olson pointed out that all nominations and elections must be by ballot and every man elected must be a producer and a contract signer. Attention also was called to the fact that each signer has only one vote and that although he may have contracts in two townships he can only participate in the election of one township organization. "We have mailed notices to all contract signers," said Mr. Olson. "However, no contract signer should stay away from a. meeting because he received no notice. There may have been an error somewhere."

SPECIALISTS TO TALK ON BARLEY AT Y. M. MARCH 1 Third of Series of North .Iowa Meetings Are Scheduled. A series of three meetings, to be conducted by Iowa State college crops specialists in co-operation with the Northwest Crop Improvement association, are to be held in northern Iowa to acquaint farmers and grain buyers with the causes for low grade barley. Dr. R. H. Porter, extension plant pathologist, and Ed Dyas, extension crops specialist, will represent the college. Representatives of the grain grading division of the bureau of agricultural economics, Washington, D. C., the malting industry and railroad companies will also attend, according to Dr. Porter. Any grain buyer or farmer interested In barley raising may attend the meeting. The first meeting will be held at Spencer, Feb. 27; the second at Algona, Feb. 28 and: the third at Mason City, March 1. The local meeting will be held at the Y. M. C. A. Farmers have been asked to bring samples of barley with which grain grading demonstrations will he conducted. In addition, discussions will be held on how to produce higher quality barley. Want Better Quality. Dr. Porter says that "we do not want to stimulate barley production--just show present barley producers how to improve the quality of their product. Farmers who produce high quality barley frequently can sell it at premium prices to the malting industry." There are a number of diseases, according to Dr. Porter, which reduce the feeding and malting: value of barley. The most important of these are blight and scab. Scab is especially objectionable, according to Dr. Porter, although both blight and scab injure germination and reduce the yield. "Probably no other factor has affected the standards of grading barley more than diseases," says Dr. Porter. "Both scab and blight have to be considered by federal grain inspectors. Barley containing more than 5 per cent blight is classed as sample grade and sells on the basis ot a sample -to any purchaser. Barley containing two Interior Department Again to Have Charge of Bureau of Mines WASHINGTON, Feb. 22. /W-President Roosevelt today ordered the bureau of mines transferred from the department of commerce to the department of the interior.

Visit In Marshall. RAKE--Mr. and Mrs. Martin Olson, Mr. and Mrs. Eilert Knutson left by automobile Thursday afternoon for Marshall, Minn., where they will visit at the Palmer Olson home. to five per cent blight is classed as blighted barley. Higher grades must contain less than two per cent blight." They pay Premium. Dr. Porter says that although the malting trade will pay a premium for high grade barley, farmers should avoid over-production because of: 1. Danger of reduced price. 2. Production of inferior grade by inexperienced producers. "Those who are in the business may produce high quality barley by observing the requirements listed above, provided seasonal conditions are not too unfavorable. Groups of farmers may profitably · club to-, gether, follow the rules for disease control and develop a business of marketing high quality barley. The Iowa State college seed laboratory can make tests of barley after threshing and determine if objectionable diseases are present. Barley which is relatively free from scab and blight will sell for a much higher price than diseased barley." Within the past 10 years, ' says Dr. Porter, the acreage of barley in the upper Mississippi valley states has increased due largely to three factors: (1) need for a summer feed substitute for corn, (2) development of smooth varieties, and (3) increased demand for better malting barley together with market premiums for high grade.
