six MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE .DECEMBER 13 0 1933 WOMEN SEE BENEFITS FROM AGRICULTURAL ADJUSTMENT FarmWives in Iowa to Be Gamers Increased Income Leads in Benefit to Come From A. A. A. AMES, Dec. 13.--Iowa farm women recognize that though increased farm income ia the mos important immediate benefit of the agricultural adjustment program several other possible results mus he rated highly, a survey of Farm Bureau women leaders in 10 coun ties has revealed. Among significant benefits which may grow out of the program, they say, are training in co-operative effort, the opportunity for more lels lire time and a chance for better soil conservation. Other Benefits. Misa Neale S. Knowles, in charg of home economics extension a' -Iowa State college, and her assist ants, Mrs. N. May Larson and Mrs Mary K. Gregg, circulated a ques tionairc among women attending township and county Farm Bureau committee meetings in 10 widely cattered counties. On the paper were listed seven possible benefits whicl the women are asked to rate in the order of their importance. Fifty women rated Increased farm income first, but 27 listed "training of farmers in co-operative work' ahead of it. . According to W. H. Stacy, extension rural sociologist, who -compiled the results of the survey, many farm women believe that the experience to co-operative effort will help farmers to work together better in the future. Bettor Understanding:. Eleven farm women said-that a ."better understanding between town and country" will be the most significant development of the agricultural adjustment plan.- Nine rated the acquirement of more leisure time as most important because they believe reducing production will check the "trend toward more 'intense working conditions on the farm." Nine women chose "parity price" as the most important result. Parity price, Mr. Stacy explained, will make a unit of farm produce buy as much of other goods as it did .before the war, Eighteen women listed the pos- ;sible development o£ a long-time national land utilization program as Jmost important. Closely allied to .this is the "soil conservation" idea .which three rated as first and all irated relatively high on the list. Income and -Leisure. ' El even'of 26 women in Plymouth Bounty rated "farm - income first.

Training in Suitable Selection of Clothes Ought to Begin Early By BROOKE PETERS CHURCH Children vary tremendously in their attitude towards choosing colthes. Some take pleasure in it, other are indifferent, and still others find the whole procedure boring and unnecessary. Since they will one day "have to assume the responsibility of dressing themselves, it seems advisable, even necessary, to train them as early as possible in the suitable choice ot clothes. · This will not, of course, apply to the occasional child who knows Instinctively what he or she wants and needs. Few children have this acuity from the outset. Most of them must be guided in some degree. For the child who has a tendency to go to extremes,' who must have the latest thing, with no regard to its taste or beauty, there is a usefu litle adage. "Be not the first by whom the new is tried, nor yet th last to lay the old aside." This child will have to be allowec to make a few mistakes, in a probability, to be shown the thrift lessness of extreme and conspicuou ACCEPTABLE YULE GIFT N'F.CJUIGEE IN TWO MATERIALS OR COLORS MAY BE SOLUTION OF CHRISTMAS PROBLEM, WHAT-TO-GIVB frtiltM 15 Ctnl I'olttrn, ZOO Fifth avenue.

WATCHES DIAMONDS clothes, to be given confidence in the beauty and grace of moderation. It is a slow process and cannot be accomplished by driving, but only by tactful guidance and insistence rather on beauty than on vulgarity. The child who has no opinions of its own, who takes without question what is given it to wear, presents just as difficult a problem. It must be encouraged to have confidence in itself, and to notice the clothes of others. If it ever does express a preference the mother will do well to gratify it if she possibly can, and to encourage with praise the results of the choice. Keeping the balance between too much and too little attention to dress is like walking a tight-rope. AUXILIARY TO'HEAR. MRS. MERTON SKELIA' Mra.
