MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE THIRTEEN Demand for Chick Mash FoundGood NW Distributing Observes Economy Sought in Pig Raising. With the spring season at hand, the Northwestern Distributing Company, Inc., 436 Second street northeast, manufacturers of Mor-Gain feeds, is having a good demand for such seasonal feeds as chick starter mash and pig meal- The demand for these feeds leads of- .ficials of the company to believe there will be at least an average number of chicks raised this year and that hog feeders are interested in raising their spring pigs in the most economical way. Hatcherymen throughout the territory of North Iowa, which the company covers, have been optimistic buyers of chick mashes. Many of them have booked their season's feed needs, feeling that market conditions would make their cost higher as the season advances. The company, has already experienced an exceptional demand for field seeds. It is distributor for Northrup King and company's field seeds and has already delivered more than two carloads of seeds to dealers in North Iowa. This early demand for seeds can be attributed largely to the government corn acreage reduction plan, it is believed. Thirteen persons are employed by the company in the office and warehouse at Second street northeast and four traveling salesmen. The company is running a fleet of four trucks, hauling the products, in some instances, more than 100 miles from Mason City. At the annual meeting of the company held last month the following officers were elected: President and general manager, R. B. Girton; secretary, H. V. Hockenberry, and treasurer, H. W. Girton. TABULATORS AT WORK IN COUNTY (ConUnued from Page 1) ing the corn-hog contracts, stated that he was immensely satisfied with 'results. "I am pleased with the cooperation given by the people, the excellent co-operation of the committeemen and the good condition of the contracts," he said. "We must remember, however, that the success of the corn-hog program is going to depend on the contract signers themselves." Mr. Richardson stated, however, that it is absolutely necessary for the farmers who have not done so to get their evidence to the committee. Other county committee officers are: E. G. Dougherty.

GETS INTO LAND CONTROL (CHiUne4 fran Fate 1) put into the land than the resulting crop is worth. The program is not calculated greatly to reduce agricul- ral surpluses. That job is still to be left to the A. A. A. Sub- marginal land produces little. To Kliminate "Slums." Rather, it is a plan to "mop up" gradually and with care areas that really are '-rural slums" from the standpoint of the standard of living the land affords its occupants. In the process of rapid settlement each depression and war produced a fresh wave of youthful and jobless settlers to find new lands in the west. Before the rush was halted attempts had been made to open up some very poor land. At least that is the picture drawn by government land studies. Farm Food Values Have Gone Upward A month's supply of dairy products lor a typical American family (28.1 quarts of milk; 6.4 pounds of evaporated milk; 5.5 pounds of butter, and 1 pound of cheese) cost the consumer $5.25 on Jan. 30. This is 30 cents more than the cost of February, 1933. The farm value of the milk and butterfat used in making these products rose 37 cents during this time, from $1.72 to $2.09.
