10 . 25, 1W4 M*I»B City Gi*«-G»»iie, t, i . Sfyirie Producers Warned of Price brdp Coming in Year ', OSAGE--While ! hog"- prices are* high now, they may suffer a sharp drop when the supply of pork rises * year from no\v, members of the Mitchell County Swine Association were warned Wednesday evening, '?"Stanley Nicol, born and reared in Mitchell County and how director of the livestock department of the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, and Eugene ;E. Garbee, president of Upper Iowa University, Fayette, were the speakers at the eighth annual' banquet of the association. Nicol ''said the hog count in the state was just under 50 million at the first of the point since 1938 year, the lowest and 24 per cent hog producers," the Des man said, "are riding below the average for the past 10 years. "You Moines pretty high now, but you'll have to raise more lean hogs if you expect to compete with beef and poultry when hog numbers rise." Four Poinfs The Farm Bureau official outlined four steps leading to prosperity for the swine producer: 1. Select the right breeding stock --lean, meat type breeders. * 2. Go after a high average litter, trying for nine or ten pigs for each sow. 3: Feed the right feeds. It costs no more to feed for a meat type than for a fat hog, he said. · . 4. Sell at the right weight on a graded basis. .Nicol also pointed out that this nation does not consume, as much meat as many others. New Zealand, he said, averages 240 pounds oJ .meat for each person, much higher than the United States average Lard Glut He explained that the glut on lard was caused in part by the changing dietary habits of the south, where consumers no longer eat "sow belly." "They are eating a lot higher on the hog down there," he said. The president of Upper Iowa University, Doctor Garbee, famed for his ability to tell a story well, struck a serious note during most ·of his platform appearance. Asserting that-humans, not material possessions, are the nation's most precious commodity, Doctor Garbee urged the Mitchell County farmers to take more thought for their childrens' education. ' Attend College He pointed to the increase in tractors in the county--up from 181,000 in 1945 to 275,000 last year-and then to the comparatively few youngsters who get to attend college. "You are," he said, "selling youth short when you deny them a chance at further education." The man whoMieads a college of 230 students urged his audience to improve education on the local level by abandoning the: one room school and demanding high standards for elementary teachers. "You are not living in 1925 or 1930. This is 1954 and your children must be/prepared to cope with the problems of 1970 and 1980. Don't handicap your children by failing to provide a good educational background," Doctor Garbee said. Spend Money "Don't be afraid to spend money so that those 2,000 children between the ages of 5 and 19 years in your county will be assured of an adequate education," he con : eluded. Re-elected president of the association was Roy Hackbart. Maurice Jorgenson was re-elected vice president and Harold Sponheim, secretary-treasurer. Directors e l e c t e d Wednesday here include Merle Lockie, Maynard Rake, Robert Libersky, Ray Cummings, Clinton Roberts," Merle Johnson, Al Christiansen, and Ben Boerjan. The pastor of the host church, the Rev. Luther Berven, gave the invocation. Osage High School senior David Almquist appeared as a vocal soloist and Joe Gannon acted as toastmaster for the evening. Suby Rebuilds His Tile Plant FERTILE--Lewis Suby, proprietor of the tile' plant which was destroyed fay fire Nov. 23 last year, has purchased a plot of land from C. C.
