Four thousand ears of corn, the best Cerro Gordo county has raised for years, were being examined minutely by Iowa State college experts Tuesday, as entires for the annual corn show at 207 North Federal avenue were being completed. Excellent weather conditions from Sept. 1 to the end of the season made the maturing season for corn in 1930 ideal, according to L. C. Burnett, chief of cereal investigation, and E. S. Dy;\T, farm crop specialist, Iowa State college, who said the corn at the show was of exceptional high quality. Boatman Is Speaker Mr. Burnett and Mr. Dyas spent the major part of the day in making their selection of the winners of the prizes offered by Mason City merchants for the host corn shown. Tuesday afternoon J. L. Boatman, ^i!? f-zfsft the extension division of Iowa State college, gave s. short talk on soils and answered questions on how to treat various types of soils. The necessity of. drainage and proper crop rotation were emphasized by Mr. Boatman. Half the soils in this section of the state, he said, have acidity and for that reason every farmer -should have the soil on his farm tested. If the soil has acid limestone should be applied on the average of two tons to the acre. Advises Rotation Rotation should include clover or alfalfa about every fourth year, according to Mr; Boatman, who said soils that lack humus should toe given an application of phosphate. He discouraged the use of commercial fertilizer until the 1 matter of the acidity of the'soil had .been attended to. On, alkali soils .potash should be applied at the rate of 200 pounds to the acre, according to the Ames man. Barnyard manure and sweet clover can also be used extensively on this form of soil. Mr. Burnett and Mr. Dyas will speak on methods of growing good corn at the corn show Wednesday morning. The prizes for the contest will be announced and distributed at a luncheon to be held at the Hotel Hanford Wednesday noon, when exhibitors and members of the Chamber of Commerce and thre e service clubs will join to hear an addresss by Eugene Funk, Bloomington, 111., noted farm expert.

DAKIN MAKES REGULAR HEALTH REPORT Tendency T o w a r d Living Past Middle Life Marked Says Director. "The deaths during the month of January were less than usual and of a more diverse classification," declared Dr. C. E. Dakin, health director, in Ills regular monthly report made to P. F. Hopkins, city manager. "However the tendency toward living past middle life is very marked as usual," he said. "There are present in the city a considerable number of cases of chickenpox and whooping cough a number of whom are not reported aad placarded so that control of the infection is very 'difficult. Reports from the east show that influenza is increasing rapidly and we may expect more or less of an epidemic,. It seems to be a mild type with a low death rate. The only prevention appears to be general care of the health and advoidance contact with those who have the disease. There are a few cases of-scarlet fever and the results of preventive inoculation are reported to be much better so that it is now recommended for all children. There seems to be no reason why we can not cut down tho occurrence of this disease as successfully as we have diphtheria and smallpox. "Condition of the city water has been very good thruout the month and there has been no reappearance of the contamination noted last summer. Weekly examinations of the water from the swimming from the Y. M. C. A., and Y. W. C. A., have served to keep them in good condition." 15 Deaths in Alonth. A total of 15 deaths occurred during the month. Two were caused by cerebral hemorrhage, two by pneumonia, two by cancer and one each by malnutrition, senility, 'coronary .ocluslon, _ nrteriors^lerosis, general peritonitis, chronic nephritis, appendicitis, abcess of brain and hem orrhage. Two deaths were under 1 year of age, one was between 1 and 10 years, one between 10 and 20 years one between 20 and 30 years, one between 50 and 60 years, three between GO and 70 years, three between 70 and 80 years, one between SO and 90 years and two were over 90.

Green Cafe "Tho Home of Good FonJ" Scores Tendency of Writers to Belittle American Heroes. Arthur L. Rule scored the modern tendency of writers to tear down the figures that have been idols of history and heroic inspirations to the youth of America in his address on the life of Lincoln to tho junior division of the Mason City Chamber of Commerce at the Eadmar hotel Monday evening. "Even if the things they write of were true, what* good purpose could be accomplished by it." ho asked. "The greatness of Washington and Lincoln cannot be underestimated in its gift to American tradition and emphasizing' their human failings, picturing them with feet of clay can only do harm and no good. Mr. Rule quoted Ida M. Tarhell's reply to Edgar Lee Master's recently announced deheroizing biography of Abraham Lincoln, "Lincoln Needs No Defense." Two pupils of Miss June Barber opened the program, Betty Fesslcr reading "Quality Street," and Grace Dunielson three children's poems by A. A. Milne. Ne\v directors chosen by the junior division were announced as Charles E. Cornwell, R. E. Finlayson. Dr. D. O. Fitzgerald, Rodnev P. Lien, H. D. Makcever, Millard F. Miller, Dr. George T. Parks, Willis O. Pntton, Clarence Schukei and George Wolf, past president.
