HUGHMVEWS0N FUNK TELLS HOW CORN DEVELOPED THRU CENTURIES Bloomingrton Expert Talks to Contest Winners at Hotel Hanford. How many years and much study was required to develop the corn with greatest yield was described by Eugene Funk of Bloomington 111., at a dinner Wednesday noon at the Hotel Hanford when winners of the Cerro Gordo county corn show were honored by the Chamber of Commerce, Rotary, Lions and Kiwanis clubs. Two hundred sixty persons were at the dinner. varieties of corn can be developed," Mr. Funk declared, "Which will resist corn diseases, which will resist cold and heat, which wilt resist drought and still give 15 to 20 bushels more an acre yield than other corn." Originated in S. A. Mr. Punk, whose subject was The Corn Development Program of Yesterday and Today and What tt Means to America," said that corn n Europe has a different meaning than m the United States. Corn he said, had originated in South America. "Exporting of corn started early n the United States, he said, beginning m 1650 when 500 bushels were ent out," the speaker added "The average export for the past 10 years was 48,000,511 bushels. 80 Per Cent Grown Here. Mr. Funk declared that if all the. orn raised in the. United States vere put into one field it would e equal to the combined areas of lllnois, Iowa and Missouri. About 0 per cent of the world's corn is reduced in the United States, he ontmued. The average corn pro - uctiou is 26 to 28 bushels an acre, ut a farmer with a production uch as that would find himself los- ng- money, according to Mr. Punk In 1890 began scientific/breeding f corn to deyelop a product with a igher yield; The corn" Breeders association was formed at Peorla and first had 18 members, each member with a d'fferent idea of the best way to breed corn, Mr. Funk stated. He Tested Corn. "Funk brothers seed firm was organized and we made an effort to determine which was the best yielding corn--the smooth or rough varieties," Mr. Funk continued. "We had seven types of corn from the extreme smooth to the extreme rough. In 1900 I showed the smooth corn as the best corn at a show in Champaign, HI., and this revolutionary idea nearly caused a riot." Mr. Punk said that in planting and harvesting a 40 acre field of corn a farmer travels 822 miles. This, he said, was surprising to most farmers, who did not realize the great amount of effort required to produce the corn. Mr. Funk then showed slides which illustrated the various kinds of corn. In some of these it was demonstrated how important the root structure of corn is. Evron M. Karges operated the stereopticon machine. Announces Winners. Invocation was offered at the dinner by the Tlev. W. L. Dibble, pastor of the Congregational church. B A Webster, president of the Chamber of Commerce, extended a welcome to the guests. The Rusty Hinge quartet sang several selections. James A. King of the Mason City Brick and Tile company stated he had been informed by the president of the company, F. J. Hanlon, that this firm would co-operate next year in sponsoring the corn show. Mr. King also announced the winners of the corn show cups. R. G. Schumacher, Thornton, with 114.49 bushels of corn was awarded the Penick and Forde cup and the county yield cup for having the biggest yield in the county and in the state. He has participated in the corn show for eight years. P. W. Stover, Geneseo township won a cup for the grand championship -30 ears of corn.

QUALITY OF CORN BEST IN HISTORY OF YIELD PLOTS Iowa State College Experts Pleased With Results of Corn Show. By ARTHUR PICKFORD Glole-Gu7.ctte Farm Editor. "Absolutely the best quality of corn ever exhibited in any of tho eight corn contests that have ber'n put on by the Mason City Brick and Tile company," is the wav James A. King put it as he surveyed the 4,000 ears spread out on the tables in the exhibit room at 207 North Federal avenue and thia statement was concurred in by E S. Dyaa and L,.- C. Burnett, corn judges, who have been in attendance at all the previous 1 shows. Not only is the quality good but the average yield is higher. R. G Schumacher's 114.49 bushels was higher than that of Carl Olson of Grimes In 1925 who grew 108 »5 bushels which up to this year was the top notch. That same year Thorvald Neilson of Clear Lake grew 100 bushels. South and West Best. In general it may be said that the south and west part of Cerro Gordo had almost a monooly of high yields, tho a glance over the 1930 list shows good yields in every township. It will be noticed that the same names appear year after year in the list of contestants. If one were asked what, was the net result ot all these yeara of effort the answer 1. Corn -better adapted to the soil and climate of Cerro Gordo. 2. More care in planting- only good, strong seed. Preparation Hotter. 3. Better preparation of soil and the addition of some fertilizer to atimulato growth. 4- Planting rows closer and hills nearer together so as to have all tho hills the soil fertility will take care 5. Better cultivation. It is somewhat remarkable that the high yield for the state comes to Cerro Gordo county thia year which was no doubt owing to climatic conditions in the central and southern part of the state. GOT 114 BUSHELS AN ACRE, HIGHEST IN LOCAL Pleasant Valley Farmer Is Given Two Cups, Medal and Money Prizes. R. G. Scnumacher of Pleasant Valley township with a yield of 114.49 bushels of corn to the acre carried off first place in the eighth annual Cerro Gordo county vield contest and established a new high record for the time the contest has been in operation.
