MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FIFTEEN AMERICA LAND OF OPPORTUNITY FOR FARMER K. G. LEEMHUIT Adapted Citizen ALPHONSE CARSTENS Iowa Product FRED FHEESE "Home Beautiful" B. A. LUDEMAN Versatile Citizen SIB. AND MRS. IJESCH Sorghum Specialists That America is the land of opportunity for the farmer is not just a patriotic boast to one Cerro Gordo farmer--it is a delightful reality. L. C. Lcemhuit was born in Oest Friesland.. Germany, in 1900. he first became apprenticed to a carpenter to learn the trade. His wages consisted of board and room. In the evenings he attended school and gradually worked himself up where he received 25 cents a day. During slack . times he hired out to a butcher. A friend in America then loaned Leemhuit $200 for passage to Iowa. He got work Immediately at $10 a month in the winter and $36 a month in summer. In two years he was free of debt. He worked four years at the Decker packing plant in the busy season and on the farm when the packing establishment cut down its force In four years he had equipment sufficient to start farming. He rented a farm and feel= he is getting on. He is married A!nhonse Carstcns came of Danish stock. He fought in the' World war, believes In co-operative effort to better farm conditions. He lives at Burchinal where he is president of the Farmers elevator. He operated the farm on which he was born 36 years ago. Fred Freesc, Floyd county farmer, known as a painstak- ' ins: operator and enterprising citizen, joined with his wife in making the home attractive. Passersbv invariably notice the surroundings. K. A. Ludeman, born on a farm in Grundy county, is a^ain farming after having, dealt in grain, coal, feed, banking and the retail shoe business. The family is musical and interested in church and community work. Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Lesch. sorghum specialists and canners, live on highway No. 9. where they are making two Wades of grass (or something else) grow where one or nothing grew before. They hau-I the sap instead of the cane to the pans for sugaring-. Polk County Man Uses Mixture of Protein for Hens A ready mixed protein supplement is used by V. M. Ter- trum. Polk county, in preparing his hen ration. This supplement is designed to make a balanced feed when combined with farm produced grains. Mr. Tertrum mixes 100 pounds of it with 200 pounds of corn or 100 pounds each of corn and oats. "I have been paying $2.25 a hundred for this supplement," he explained, "which with the locally produced grains makes my ration cost about $1.25. If 1 were able to produce instead of buy the grains I could reduce the price to a lower figure than that." Mr. Tertrum is operating a small poultry and rabbit plant and selling his products to the roadside trade. New Methods Used in Butchering Are More Economizing Butchering time has been the red letter event on our farm calendars during the last two months, and what a job it has been! We have, most of us thrugh the butchering demonstrations that have been in progress for a few years, learned how to simplify and econ- omize fully 50 per cent on old- time methods, but to have a select and varied array of products that we can be justly proud of there must be days of- real, rolled-up-sleeve, hard work. YOUR BEST MARKET HIDES and WOOL Wolf Bros. S10 Fifth St. S. W. 550,000 ARE NOW SIGNED UP (Contlnned from Pate I) these fundamental things; that is, if they are attracted only by the cash benefits," Secretary Wallace declared, "we can be said to have failed in a degree to make a real stride forward in restoring agricultural stability. All these readjustments involve some inconvenience for most farmers. In' a few cases, a peculiarity in the individual situation may make co-operation almost a practical impossibility. However, I think it will be generally recognized that we must voluntarily introduce some kind of a definite national schedule of agricultural production. This is particularly essential in view of the fact that our present rate pf production obviously is excessive and because a lasting revival in foreign trade depends so completely on a decision by American people between the courses of nationalism and internationalism, a decision which has not yet been made." DISINFECTS SECULARLY Lye is used as a poultry and hog house disinfectant by H. A. Reckamp, Lincoln county, Ho. He treats the chicken houses once a year and hog houses twice a year. This practice aids materially in controlling disease. Farm Edition Specials! Men's Boys' Work Shirts All Sizes ...
