V Prescription Tablets A The Right Way to Reduce Lessons Given Sons Return Dividends to Reed, Master Farmer EELLEVUE, Feb. 17. (.W--Lessons m good farming he taught his two sons years ago have been returned with big dividends to Alex Reed, 61. Many of the improved practices applied to the operation of his 480 acre farm in recent years he attributes to the influence of those sons, Carleton, 24, and Lester, Always a vigorous advocate of 4-H club work, Reed did much to build up that organization after he became a charter member of the Jackson county Farm Bureau which he served as president for two years. He urged his sons to engage in club work, spent many hours in helping them solve their problems, and in return has learned farming practices which have proved unvaluable on his farm. So completely has he taken the sons in partnership now that to them goes the task of keeping the farm records. Reed says they years ago started to urge the adoption of farming methods which have proved themselves. As a consequence, he feels the boys are responsible in an appreciable extent for his selection as one of Iowa's 15 Master Farmers of 1930. Associated Press Photo Mary Garden met John D.
