MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 3 1936 TURKS BOYS'WOODWORK WILL BE JUDGED Montgomery Ward Contest to Be Open to Those Under 19 Years of Age. A contest which will challenge the creative ability and manual dexterity of the boys, 19 years old and younger, of this community was announced Tuesday by B. F. Sherman, Montgomery Ward store manager. The contest opened March 3 and closes April 4. Any type of product of the woodworker's art may be submitted provided that it is the work exclusively of the one boy and that it is made during the period of the contest. The store manager announced that he expected all types of entries from wooden bowls to bedsteads and that the type of the article will make no diffei'ence in determining the prizes which will be awarded on the basis of workmanship. The first prize, according to Mr. Sherman, will be a ?12.95 lathe;.second prize will be a 37 inch lathe which sells for $4.95; third prize, a heavy vise; and fourth prize, an emery wheel. Winners will be selected by a committee of 3 competent judges, which will be announced later. Entry blanks are available at the Ward store here, and all boys are invited to call at the store for blanks and any information about the contest. Winning articles will be displayed In the window of the Ward store after the announcement of winners on April 13, but will remain the exclusive property of the boys who made them. The local manager, Mr. Sherman, knowing from experience in selling woodworking tools that fathers are often as interested as boys in woodworking projects, stated that parents may give advice and may watch their sons' efforts all they like as long as they do not participate in the actual work. MURDER TRIALS AS SCHEDULED Pleas of Mrs. Johnston and Horton to Delay Trial Date Denied. BEDFORD, /B--The poison murder trials of Floyd Horton and his confessed paramour, Mrs. Anna Johnston, will proceed March 16 as scheduled. District Judge Homer A. Fuller, refusing to quash the county attorney's information charging Mrs. Johnston with murder, Monday also denied Hortons and Mi's. Johnston's pleas to postpone the date of trial. Horton and Mrs. Johnston, who admitted illicit relations since last November, are accused of plotting the poison murder of Horton's comely 37 year old wife, Elta, who died after taking, capsules for a cold. First Degree Methods. Frank Wisdom, Mrs. Johnston's attorney, asked the court to quash the indictment against his client on ground that the prosecution employed "first degree methods" in obtaining her confession. Wisdom asserted that Mrs. Johnston was questioned for more than 10 hours at one time and that she was not informed of her constitutional rights to an attorney and to refuse to make statements that might incriminate her. Practices Foster Anarchy. "Such practices in procuring confessions foster anarchy and revolution," Wisdom said. Horton's attorneys did not seek to quash the indictment of their client, but joined with Disdom in asking a continuance. They told Judge Fuller they would not have sufficient time to prepare a defense by March 16, but Judge Fuller, overruling the motion, said: "I believe that two weeks is all .he time you need to prepare . . . be ready for trial March 16." CHARLES CITY NEWS FLOYD COUNTY SOILS STUDIED Planning Committee Makes Suggestions on Crop Proportions. CHARLES CITY--Several members of the Floyd County Planning committee met in the Farm Bureau office Monday and completed the preliminary report which included the problem of production of the various farm products in 193G assuming normal weather conditions and present farming practises and the probable production of the various farm products under a crop system that would control erosion and maintain soil fertility. Floyd county has six main soil types each of which requires a little different handling- to maintain soil fertility and to prevent erosion, Martin E. Sar, chairman of the county agricultural planning committee said in commenting on the work of the group. For the purpose of the report, the soil types were grouped in the following 6 groups: Carrington, Dodgeville and Dickinson soils; Clyde, Floyd soils; Lindley, Clinton and Roseville soils; terrace soils; bottom soils; muck and peat. Classification Is Explained. The soils of the first group comprise 57 per cent of the area of the county and are the upland well drained soils with a fairly rolling to rolling topography. The second group makes up about 23 per cent of the area of the county and includes the upland soils that are heavy and have poor natural drainage for the most part. The topography of this soil is inclined to be level or impressed. It is the most fertile soil in the county when properly drained. The third group of soils is the least productive of all BOYS!

The fourth group includes th more or less sandy soils lying be twcen the bottom and upland soil It has good natural drainage and is very fertile where a good rotatioi including a legume is followed. This soil will not withstand the drought however, as well as some of the other types. The fifth group includes the lowland soils which are subjec to overflow and a large per cen of which is in bluegrass and woodland. The sixth group comprises only a fraction of a per cent o: the area of the county and is very dark in color having a high organic matter content. This type of soil is particularly suited to truck crops Recommendations are Made. The following figures illustrate the difference between what the committee thought would be grown under normal conditions and what should be grown if all farmers were following soil management programs that would adequately maintain the fertility of their soils. The group estimated that the permanenl nasture should be increased from 46.000 acres to 52.000 acres, the rotation pasture increased from 2S.- 000 to 35.000 acres, the corn acre age decreased from an estimated 102,000 to 94,000 acres, the smal grain acreage decreased from 72,000 acres to 64,000 acres. According to the acreages worked out by the committee, Floyd county should have a total of 69,000 acres in rotation pasture and tame hay with approximately 11.400 acres in alfalfa. The acreage of alfalfa in the county at the present time is approximately 2.000. Some of the other striking changes which were recommended by the committee was a large decrease in the soybean acreage unless a local market can be devel oped for soybean seed. It was felt that with a large acreage of alfalfa, the need of soybeans for hay would not be nearly as great.
