MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 26 1936 SEVEN L A T E F A R M N E W S {ARGENTINA PLANS I RECORD ACREAGE {All-Time High of 18,854,000 ) Acres of Land Planted i to Corn. j The first official estimate of the 1 area planted to corn in Argentina i this season is for an all-time record 'i of 18,854,000 acres, according to a i report to the Bureau of Agricultural 'Economics from Agricultural At- tache P. 0. Nyhus in Buenos Aires. This is an increase of S.6 per cent over the final estimate of 17,368,000 acres planted last year. The corn area in Argentina has been increasing steadily. The average acreage ·- seeded for the five years ending with 1933-34 was 15.567,000 acres. Condition of the crop is considered good in general although partial losses and damage are recorded as a m Why You Should Never Cut a Corn If you are troubled with corns or callouses, do not run the risk of blood poison by paring them. Statistics show that many infections have occurred from this seemingly innocent practice of paring corns. Simply go to your druggist and get some Ice-Mint, rub a little on any painful corn or callous. The pain promptly disappears and in a short time the corn or callous will loosen and lift off easily--root and all--leaving the surrounding skin in a healthy normal condition. This, together with the fact that Ice-Mint quickly eases such troubles as sore, tired, aching, puffed or burning feet and makes them cool, easy and comfortable, is probably the reason for the hearty endorsement given it by druggists. To rid one's feet of every hard corn, soft corn, corn between the toes or painful callouses in such a pleasant and safe way, makes it seem the height of folly for anyone to pare a corn and people are warned to stop it.

This plague is a menace in other regions and 13 being watched closely. The final estimate of production for the 1934-35 crop was 451.9-43,000 bushels, which was ttie largest on record. The carryover from the 193334 crop amounted to only 445,000 bushels. The estimate of seed requirements for the year from April, 1935, through March, 1936, was 5,905,000 ushels. Domestic consumption was 95.270,000 bushels. This left an exportable surplus of 351,213,000 bushels. Actual exports from April 1. 1935, to Feb. 3, 1036, totaled 273,146.000 bushels, leaving a balance available for export or carryover on that date of 78,067,000 bushels. NEW QUOTA ON BACON REVEALED Slight Increase in Non- Empire Shipments Announced. The basic quota on imports of cured pork into Great Britain from non-empire countries during the nine weeks Feb. 26 to April 30 has been fixed at 103,296,000 pounds, according to the Bureau of Agricultural Economics. The quota represents a weekly allocation of 11,477,000 pounds corn- pared with a basic weekly quota of 10,809.000 pounds from Jan. 1 to Feb. 25. Because of necessary adjustments in the quota?, actual imports were slightly in excess of the latter figure. The United States will be permitted to share in the new basic quota, ns heretofore, to the extent of 8.1 per cent. On that basis American packers will be permitted to ship to the British market, about 8,367,000 pounds of cured pork. The aggregate effect of the quotas announced thus far this year will be to limit the imports of cured pork from non-empire countries from Jan. 1 to April 30, 1936, to about 189,000,000 pounds of which about 15,300,000 pounds have been allocated to the United States.

(Iowa Daily Press JPhoto) CAN'T DO IT ALONE Stand off by yourself in your dreaming". And all of your dreams are vain; No grandeur of soul or spirit Can man by himself attain. It is willed we shall dwell as brothers; As brothers, then we must toil; We must act;with a common purpose As we work in a common soil. And each who would see accomplished The dreams that he's proud to own, Must strive for the goal with his fellows, For no man can do it alone. --Selected.
