FULLERTON TELLS OF RURAL LIFE, COMMUNITY Describes Improvements in Farm Homes Made Past 50 Years. After sketching some of the improvements which have come into farm homes in the past 50 years and pointing to the needs which still exist, Mrs. Dick Fullerton of Owen township Thursday noon told the Kiwanians that moat farmers are forced to confine themselves to the bare necessities of life. This is because their income has been greatly reduced. "Particularly for a farmer who is trying to buy his own farm, has interest to pay, insurance, taxes ana other expenses, it is almost impossible to purchase more than just the necessities of living," Mrs. Fullerton asserted. "I wonder how many of you know just how many farmers are living under conditions as they were about 50 years ago?" At this meeting, at which five North Iowa county agents were guests, Mrs. Fullerton, who lives at Hollyhock farm on the edge of Floyd county, described how her parents came to Iowa in pioneer days. Often she had heard her husband's mother and father describe how they reared a family of nine children in a small house. Development* Are Sketched. Hardships resulting from crop failures were described by her. Diversified farming helped the farmers. Then she sketched developments which aided to the home life a sewing machine which was espec- ally valuable since the mother sewed the clothes for all the family, im- rovements in canning and water in :he house. Even central heating units, electrification and screen )orches were other additions made :o many farm houses which added to comforts. Then Mrs. Fullerton gave a short history of community farm life. Singing societies and literary societies were developed by thi Dioneers. She said she was a mem oer of a club which Friday wouli celebrate its nineteenth anniversary [Jnlike city clubs, this club is fo the entire family, the hired man and the hired girl. Programs an socials are held. Farm Keally Co-Operative. The schoolhouse community cen ter, Farm Bureau and 4-H club ac tivities were also described. Sh emphasized the value of a hobby She said she derived as much pleas ure from working in her garden as many city women do, -in ..playin golf. "The farm Is truly a co-operativ concern," added Mrs. Fullerton, " in the family must work for th common good. I think one reason s many of our great men have com from the farm is because the have learned to work with other for the welfare together." Two whistling solos were pres ented by Mrs. Glen Bishop of For land township. With trills, obligate and a beautiful warbling of tone she gave her numbers, also plaj ing the piano. Introduces County Agents. Fred G. Mitchell, secretary o the North Iowa fair, who was in charge of the program introduce the following county agents: Hovi ard Brown of Charles City, S. Oberhauser of Garner, Marti Fabricius of Osage, R. T. Nelson of Northwood and Marion Olson of Mason City. C. O. Wilkinson, president of the Northwest Savings bank, was welcomed back into the club.

UPI-Cost of the Iowa old age pension bill has been estimated by the Des Moines bureau of municipal research at approximately $1,000,000 annually, of which $200,000 ivould replace present expenditures for the poor. The old age pension bill, with provisions for a $1 poll tax has passed the state senate and is pending action in the house. The bureau estimated that the ?1 poll tax, If efficiently collected, should meet the pension cost. The bill provides a maximum monthly pension of $30 for destitute persons more than 65 years old. The bureau figures estimate that there are approximately 6,000 persons in Iowa who would be eligible. This is based on experience in other states. Although the maximum pension would be $360 a year, the average Reports that Archduke Otto ol Austria, planned a coup to fly secretly to Vienna and seize the throne once occupied by his father, Emperor Charles, have thrown Europe Into a state of excitement. The reports have been denied by attendants of Archduke Otto at Castle Stecn- ockcrzecl, where Otto has been living with his mother, former Empress Zita. shown in other states would be about $166 the report said. The bureau reported that a saving of possibly $100,000 to $125,000 now paid out In room and board of aged poor persons outside county homes would be effected by the establishment of old age pensions. Possibly $100,000 of the $500,000 a year food and provisions cost which now goes to the poor would be absorbed also, the report said. The bureau estimated the net increase In poor relief costs provided by the bill at $800,000.

LT1--A larger quantity of packinghouse commodities was produced and sold in the United States during January, 1934, than in any month during the past nine years. The federal reserve bank of Chicago reported today that the volume of production rose 18 per cent over December, to a level 17 per cent above a year ago and OVi per cent in excess of the 1924-33 January average. Payrolls at the close of the period, therefore, continued to reflect a marked improvement over a year earlier, and showed a gain over December of 10 per cent in hours worked, and of 4Vi per cent in wage payments, although the number of employes declined U per cent in the latter comparison. The total value of sales billed to domestic and foreign customers wag greater than for any previous month since October 1933, being 9% per cent larger than in December and 31 per cent in excess of last January. Demand was sufficiently strong to permit a slight firming in the general price level of packinghouse commodities, despite the fact that the sales tonnage offered exceeded that of any corresponding period since Octc-ber, 1924, and was not only 15 per cent above a year ago but S per cent in excess of the 192333 January average. Township chairmen of the Cerro j Gordo county corn-hog setup will meet at the Y. M. C. A. Friday morning when the permanent organization will be perfected.
