SIX MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE 6 NEW CREAMERIES JOIN IOWA BRAND Improving of Quality Continues IT SEEMS TO ME tried corn (Continued from Pace ft) fluence of the seasons. Have you ever breeding? - No. We have held to the practical -side of supplying our customers with varieties which have proved their worth in this locality and in this part of Iowa. Our seed corn business is a local affair, as it is impossible to ship the same seed corn over a large area and have it do well in every place. How is the buyer protected from foul seed? When buying from Iowa dealers, he has the protection of the Iowa seed law which states that the following information must be given: Where grown, what year, per cent purity, per cent of common weeds, germination test, when tested and noxious weeds must be stated on the tag If present. This law does not apply to sales made by a dealer outside the state. Do you do any recleanlng of seeds? Yes. We do nearly all our recleaning in our warehouse which is equipped with modern seed cleaning machinery. Sometimes we run night and day in the rush season. After the seed is cleaned and bulked v.-..'.'.v.Ow9BHooo!iOwvi«"V»·OOKKKVHW*''-*TMTM*' ' · --^^^^^. ~^_ "Vitamin D" Bread for little folk always on the go v carbohydrates to furnish energy * "Vitamin D" to build strong bones and teeth A laying hard, using up energy, never relaxing · · · · Children need the natural energy elements (carbohydrates).

Lacking "Vitamin D", not only will hones and teeth fail to develop properly, hut there may he far- reaching consequences affecting a child's later life. Ordinary bread contains carbohydrates. But to offset the lack of "Vitamin D" in everyday foods, ·we are now incorporating in our "VITAMIN D" BREAD the natural "Vitamin D" extracted by the Zucker-Columbia patented process from pure cod liver oil Nature's richest source. Every loaf of "VITAMIN D"BREAD contains the "Vitamin D" equivalent of two teaspoonfuls of standard cod liver oil--the tasteless and odorless vital element, -without the oil itself. No other bread in this community contains the natural "Vitamin D" of cod liver oil. "VITAMIN D" BREAD tastes the same as our regular bread. Toasting or making into desserts will not diminish its vitamin content. Buy it daily for your whole family's sake.

I presume you are a, member of the slat* association of seed dealers. At present I am treasurer and also a member of the executive committee. I have a personal acquaintance with about all Iowa seed dealers and know a good many in other parts o£ the United States. Has the corn-hog reduction caused any unusual demand for seeds' We have had an unusual demand for some varieties but it is a little early yet. Many farmers are undecided as to what they will sow or are not informed as to what they can plant. What will be the effect of this restriction of production? Will it make an artificial shortage? Will we have to bar food products of other countries ? Restriction of production should of course make a smaller supply and a higher price, but this could be largely overcome by an unusually good crop year. My opinion is that it will not cause an unusual shortage. We may be compelled to bar some grain products from other countries but flax would be an exception as we have had to import this seed for many years back. There is not enough produced here for normal consumption. Do you see any signs of the end of this depression? A much better feeling exists now than there was a year ago. especially among farmers. Farm products are higher. No chance to buy any 10 cent oats or 15 cent corn at present. To predict when the depression will end would be just a guess. It is my opinion that one man's guess is as good as another's. INCOME SHRINKS National income shrank 40 per cent between 1929 and 1932, according to preliminary figures submitted to the United States senate by the department of commerce last month. Two More Officials at Mason City to Aid Work. The Iowa State Brand Creameries, Inc., have been quite active since the first of the year. Six new creameries have affiliated with--and are marketing their butter through, our Mason City organization. The Leland, Rake, Roland and Story City, all co-operative creameries, are now marketing their butter through the institution. In addition two -privately owned creameries, the Rolfe creamery and the Northwest creamery of Spencer are new patrons. The quality improvement work is proceeding steadily. Every creamery marketing butter through the Iowa State Brand creameries is required to participate in this quality improvement work. Two Families Here. During this past month, two new families have located in Mason City. R. C. Weaver and Karl Wester, dairy extension specialists, have established residence in Mason City so that they might be located at a convenient point for carrying on the cream improvement work.; These men are directed by the dairy department of Iowa State college. Mr. Weaver received his degree of dairying in 1930. Since then he has had some experience handling butter in a business which he operated at Sterling, 111., his former home town. Mr. Weaver also spent some time in assisting in the distribution of dairy products with the lowana Farms at Davenport, and has also managed one of the units for the Dairy corporation of America, at McKenzie, Term.

This-model has practically the same physical dimensions as the regular Farmall--but it has a good 10 per cent more power, 4 forward speeds, enclosed steering gears, and enclosed steering brakes. The advantages of the additional power and extra speeds which make the Farmall 20 more flexible are appreciated when it comes to pulling 2 plow bottoms and the heavier tillage tools in tough going, operating 4,-row cultivators, 2-row Farmall corn pickers, 2-row potato diggers, and all drawbar, belt and power take-off jobs. Farmall 20 speeds are 2U, 2%, 3 and 3% miles per hour. You will admire the Farmall 20 when you see it at work. It has all the features that have made the regular Farmall famous. Ask us about it now.
