MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FEBRUARY BROAD INTEREST OF LUBKEMAN IS CAREER FEATURE ' North lown Master Farmer ·· ' ' Rated as Outstanding Hog Producer. COULTER, Feb. U. Henry F. -Lubheman, 55, failed to heed ttfe call of the farm when he came to Iowa 38 years ago as an immigrant lad from Germany, he might now be one of the 1 state's leading bankers. Even so, Lubkeman as ^director and vice president of a bank here has won respect as a man of more than ordinary judgment .In financial matters. Other officers of the bank say his counse has steered the Institution o v e r rough spots in its financial road in recent years ant that his opinions are valued highly. Banking alone, however, has nol occupied all of his attentions in community af- H.:F. Xubkeman fairs. For the last two years) Lubkeman has been president of the Franklin county Farm Bureau. For five years prior to that he was its treasurer. Member ol Boards. The boards of directors ,of the lo cal elevator and the county fair Have Included his name for 12 anc ,- 20 years, respectively. He also is a director of the Deaconist hospita at Marshalltown, sponsored by thi Evangelical Lutheran church o: which locally he has been treasurer chairman of the financial board and chairman of the committee which rebuilt the church home. ' For 20 years, Lubkemau has been i active in the co-operative creamery. He helped organize the local ship ping 1 association, has been a township trustee and a scbooj director for six years. , These activities . have been incidental, to his farming operations for Lubkeman believes in the future of agriculture "with all its ups and downs" as he puts it. He insists that "until we have a doctor who can cure all ill, we're going 1 to farm." · Became Blaster Farmer. / 1 Lubkeman bouglt his first SO acres in 1900, after having farmed as tenant -for four years and ·worked as a hired man for the first four years after his arrival from Hanover, Germany, his birthplace. In 1905, he added a second 80 acres. Operation of that quarter section, along with his numerous community^ activities, placed Lubkeman: ', on . the list of Iowa Master Farmers 'for 5,31930. s _ ; "Tfflsf^neigStiors credit- him. with' , fcavlng.been one of the community's outstanding hog producers for 25 years. A glance at his book records i tells why. In 1930, he had 30 Spotted Poland brood sows from ·which he raised to maturity 157 pigs. In his 11 litters of fall pigs were 100 animals. i When he marketed a group of spring pigs in November of 1929, ·; they averaged 311 pounds. He mar- r heted the rest in January at an average of 335 pounds. His neighbors frequently come to him for breeding boars. i Poultry 'Shows Profit, Lubkeman's poultry enterprise, the basis of which is a flock of 200 Rhode Island Reds, showed a gross return of $4 a hen that year. He follows the most improved practices in raising his chickens. His cattle are cross-breds; For four years, he used an Angus bull in his Shorthorn herd of 12 to 15 , cows. Usually he buys enough feeding cattle to finish out a carload for market. The farm which did well to average 40 bushels of corn an acre when he first purchased it, now nets twice that yield in an average year. The 38.8 acres of corn raised in 1929 yielded 82 bushels an acreage. Last year, hi a average was arounc 70. In 1930 he won the four county corn yield contest with an average of 96.56 bushels on a 10-acre field. Farm Is Flat. i This was not accomplished easily. His farm was flat and wet and he had to tile it twice before the drainage system was made to work satisfactorily. A deside to provide conveniences for his family prompted Lubkeman to lead a movement among farror .ers to obtain an electric highlina from Iowa Falls, 14 miles away The «ost was great. He also has piped water to all his principal buildings and his 12 room modern house. His farmstead is kept in perfect repair. The barnyards are fenced with hollow tile walls. 6 to 7 feet high. - ; Altho owning 1 the latest farm ma- thmery, Lubkeman prefers horse power to tractor. His 22 year olc son is his partner. The oldest son Ja a carpenter and the second son ta a buttermaker at the co-operative creamery. Two daughters live kt home. The eldest is married. John M. Hewitt Is Buried at Bristow BRISTOW, Feb. 10.--Funeral services for John Monroe Hewitt who ; dled,at the home of his son^ Everett, Saturday, were held at the Church of Christ Monday afternoon, the Rev.
