AMES--More thorough culling and more fresh cows were the two main factors mentioned by A. S. Porter, extension dairyman, in explanation o£ an increased production average for cows in Iowa cow testing associations in December. The average butterfat production in Dacember was 24.9.pounds a cow, a jump from 22.3 pounds a cow in November. The number of- cows taken from herds in December was- 776 in comparison with 719 cows removed in November and 569 in October. In spite of the narrow margin between feed and dairy prices, the better cows still are profitable, Mr.' Porter said.

FARMING MORE THAN BUSINESS Can't Be Regulated as Most Types of Mercantile Enterprises, By R. fll. HALL President, Farm Bureau. ' I did not find space for all I wanted to say about the farmer's attitude in regard to his own business in the last installment. I was told by a party of the Globe-Gazette to make my articles "short and snappy." I cannot unless I change my topic. Farming does not rim on an eight hour schedule, Farming is a continuous business. It is more than a business. I like to think of it as a way to a better life, a fuller life. You have here a business linked to one's living. Living and business function together. It is not like a printing press where the product of the brain 'is assimilated by manipulating a few levers and pressing a few buttons. Farming goes on when we sleep when we go to town and sell, our labor in produce and trade our earnings for interest, rent or goods, , we go fishing or on a vaca- PULSE OF THE FARM great agricultural Iowa is State. We all agree on that, but how great, js a somewhat misty conception with most of us. . Lately, I procured a copy of the Iowa Year .Book ot the- department of agriculture and 1 know o£ no.better way of gaining a knowledge of the amount of farm pro- jvajiae_ancl.._ths com- laws and regulations required to make it run smoothly and fairly for both producer and consumer. They Show Value. The reports are of the year 1835. They would be of larger sums Cor 1936, but they show that the value of all Iowa farm products as compiled from assessors reports was 5516,951,980 and that the value of Iowa livestock on hand, Jan 1, 1836 was $397,789,000. That is a big business. It ought to put us in the same class as the U. S. Steel corporation and the duPonls. - . . . Unfortunately, most oE us see it in sections as large as the product o£ 160 acres and the duPonts and. U. S. Steel sees it that way. except when there is a sudden shrinkage in production as in 1932 and 1D33. I think it is good business for tho farmer to think well of himself. That is the first step toward making those in' other lines think highly of him. Is Valuable Book. I know of no other book that will give him so clear a view of the means taken by our state government to promote the good of agriculture, protect him as a buyer, compel him to furnish a product that is according to a leeal standard, protect him from d'is- ease among livestock and plants and collect data that will inform him on what the conditions of farming are at any given time. It is a collection of facts' about the business of farming that can he had nowhere else. Get a copy. when - tion, in joy and in bereavement. The only uncontrollable element is nature and income. Well even my alibi is a proof that I can't be brief. We are now entering 1937 with more hope and better spirits than we did 1933. We have gained a toe hold to better times, but the path is steep with many obstacles in the way and to make a better thoroughfare for prosperity to bring us blessing ,its joys and its hopes to be disillusioned people. We need much help-- yes we need the united effort of all who think in terms of income, country and a better life. . May Not Agrrec. We may not agree on what the thoroughfare should look like when finished, whether it should be paved, graveled, etc., but I do believe we are quite .'well agreed on some of the obstacles in the way. Therefore, let us work together to make the path smoother and thereby lighten the economic burden resting upon unorganized farmers. Iowa is the' richest agricultural state in America. Its income from agricultural pursuits is greater than t h a t of any other state. Farmers have been mining wealth from the soil for eight decades and have nothing to show for their labor except a huge debt of over one billion dollars. Where is this wealth? New York, whose natural wealth is but a fraction of ours, has a capital wealth more than ten times that of Iowa and a yearly income in a greater proportion. How come? New York has been manipulating money and credit while we have lent our earnings for a mess of nottage. 65 per cent of our bank "deposits are used to FARM BUREAU OFFICERS n; M.

We can't forever mortgage our homes to industrial centers for the necessities of life. We could, with the wealth we produce, have electric service in every farm 'home, radios, telephone, well in fact the same mechanical services as our city cousins. ^Vhen we learn to keep our own savings to serve our own needs then we can become the owners of our own homes. The money Iowa earns is our money and we sho-ild have something to say as to how it should be used. But we have delegated this power to a few bankers or investment companies, no fault of theirs, it is rather the indifference of the many. Developed Inequalities. We have thus helped to develop an economic inequality whereby big business has pooled its resources which is built on our money. They can go into the money market.and get discount rates that arc prohibitive to independent farmers and small business and compete in our markets. Thus the chain stores, mail order houses and implement companies can get money for capital structure and sales financing for less than 1 per cent while you and I and any small concern must pay from 7 to 9 per cent and in many cases where credit is scarce and security small, up to 36 per cent. It is always the small and needy fellow who needs help the worst, who is at the mercy of money sharks. This gives rise to the great economic inequality. There is only one solution to this ever present need, to pool our resources, unite our efforls and organize into one strong unit.

Some times, he did not get all o£ them and then one had to take a jack nife and cut them off. Also, as th boot sole wore thin the pegs wqul sometimes come up against one' feet. They were hard on stockings. A a help to keep a boy from wear ing out the toe of the boot the sometimes had a strip of coppe' across the toes. The boy had overshoes in th seventies, or if lie did, he wor them only on Sunday, if he hap pened to have a Sunday pair o shoes. To protect his boots from water they were greased with mixture of tallow and bees wax o just plain grease and that mad the boot all the colder. Not many boys had overcoats but they had home knitted, yari mittens and often a wide knitte scarf which was wound round anc round the neck. The average boy had only one Sunday suit and if it was warn enough for winter it was too warm for summer. Many boys and mei wore paper collars. One could liuj a box for 10 cents. They had a cloth base so that they did not teai easily and some of them could be worn either side out. All boys wore woolen stockings in winter and so the boot tha was large enough for comfort in winter was too large in summer when cotton socks were worn. The result was most boys ran then boots over during the summer Knitting in those days was a ne- .cessily--not a pastime.

' What about the schools in the '70's and '80's? Very few country children got past the eighth grade and it took longer to reach that grade, in the case of boys. There was so much work to do in the summer that a 12 and 14 year old boy went only in the winter season. High school was not thought of except for a girl who wanted to teach school.' When I recall thai there were no school libraries, nor {own libraries, books were costly, magazines were rarely taken; there was one newspaper a week which did not come unless one went to the postoffice to get it; no daily mail delivery; no telephone: ho radio; no good smooth road; nothing faster than a trotting horse and in the country, weeks of almost impassable roads from snow and mud, I wonder at the progress made. What pleasures did he have? . Not so many, but they were wholesome. Bobrides, spelling schools, debates, donation parlies picnic at the end of the term o[ school, bowery dances for the older ones, the Fourth of July with its lemonade and ice cream, the circus and in some places the camp meeting.

He no longer needs to work 'from sun to sun" and he can do much more work than his father did and do it better. The same improvement is going on in the home for woman's work. .The automobile and the have given him contact radio with places and. people . with a consequent broadened, outlook. Has an Equal Chance. Regardless of the restricted advantages of those earlier times, many o£ our great men came from the farm. Possibly the restricted environment made them more resourceful. As things are today the country boy is on an equal footing with the city lad, competing in school, commerce or any line of endeavor he may choose. Gave Up Boy Friends To Groom Pet Jean Minish's Steer Wins Grand Championship Western Show. DENVER, (Jfj--Jean Minish, curly haired 19-year-old Hudson, Iowa, girl, gave up boy: friends, novies and even her studies to groom her pet, Typ, for stardom n the livestock world. Typ, his hair crinkled and hoofs veil .manicured, obliged by win- ling the 4-H club grand championship from more than 500 other purebred steers at the iVestern stock show. National Ever since she bought Typ as a calf from Typ Wilson, Sheridan, Vyo., rancher, Miss Minish said oday, she was determined to nake a champion of the Hereford leer. That meant devoting all leisure ime to her 1,080 pound pet. "I like to go out and I like novies, just like anybody else" aid Jean, "but I like the cattle lusiness more, I guess." She had to watch Typ "day and light." '·If I didn't watch him he would at things that he shouldn't," she xplained. "I used to get up at a. m., and go out to the barn to eed Typ. "He has always been quite rca- onable, but he could be the irangcs't steer sometimes. I guess was temperament. And he'd jusl efuse lo eat. I had lo coax him/ "Then, on other days, he'd feel ke ealing everything lie could nd, but we got along."

PHONE 2019 MASON CITY The Howard County Times of 50 years ago contains this item about dehorning cattle,' then a new practice: "The practice of dehorning cattle was just starting in Howard county and opinion among farmers was divided on the merits of the work. Some condemned it as cruel. H: H. Haaf of Atkinson, III., was arrested, charged with cruelty to animals lor dehorning in Illinois. W. H. Richards who lived east of Cresco invented a rack lor holding the animals while the operation was being performed." It Was Cold Then. Twenty-five years a g o the Northwood Anchor had this item: "On Friday, Jan, 12, the official thermometer in Northwood went to 37 degrees below zero, breaking all records for cold in this vicinity since consecutive daily records have been kept. The lowest recorded before 1912 was 32 below zero on Feb. 9, 1899. At that time there were 5 days ,in which the thermometer did not go above zero. This year there were 7 days that the temperature was below zero constantly." The Britt Tribune records this item: "John Earlcs, who held a farm sale at the Mackay farm si: miles southwest of Britt last Wed nesday, and Is retiring to his homi in Hutchins, sold a pair ol fou months old colts for $400. A man brought $316. Two roan yearling stallions sold cheap, according ti horse men who know values. "The sale as a whole, however was very successful. Cattle anc hogs sold well. Mr. Earles did no sell his stallion as he did not ge a bid he felt was reasonable. He will sell him at private sale 01 will stand him next season." Land Prices Up. "The purchase price of the 80- acre Felland farm l»,i miles south of Joice which xvas purchased recently by Melvin Lindflott from John and Henry Evenson, is given as $125 an acre, says the Northwood Anchor. This is the highest price paid for land in Worth county for some time. The Hampton Chronicle notes the appearance of the first robin by County Superintendent ol Schools H. G. Doeringsfeld, who reported last Monday that a robin along with a score or more olh'ei birds, including cardinals, sparrows and downy woodpeckers, came to the bird feeder in his back yard to peck at pieces of suet placed there for birds wintering in the neighborhood. It also states that "a total of $4,379 has been ordered paid by the supervisors of Franklin county for damage done during the past year by dogs and wolves. The board allowed $10 for good sheep, S7 for lambs'and made allowances for calves, horses and fowls according to the value of the stock or poultry. The dog tax is $2 for males and $4 for females." Some Slicep at Burf. Charles. Patterson, northwest of Burt, is feeding 3,820 sheep this winter. It is worth anyone's time to see this flock, for it is not often that so many can be seen at one time in this part of the country. Fresh Meat for Farm Folks. Rural life has adopted another convenience for farm housewives, --the locker system oC keeping meats and other foods frozen until needed. Wesley, Jan. 11--A total of 250 attended the recent meeting of the Farmers' Creamery in the interests of the locker system. A Mr. Peterson, of Ringsted, gave an in- testing talk on the use of lockers. An orchestra composed o£ Fred Diekmann, Mrs. Haverly, ' Don Haverly'and Elaine Studer, played during lunch, and afterward Joseph Skow gave two solo numbers. Wives of board members and of employes served lunch. The newly appointed butcher, Maurice Olson, and Mrs. Olson were introduced, and an open house was held at the locker building. A total of 178 lockers were reported sold, and they were to be ready for use Monday. At some of the plants a butcher is kept who will kill and dress the animal and , place it in the locker.
