In order to allow corn-hog contract signers to take advantage of the favorable weather and get into their fields as soon as possible, it was decided Monday at a meeting of the board of the Corn-hog Control association to postpone the measuring of contracted acreage until all appraisals have been completed. This policy will speed up the entire program by about two weeks, according to County Agent Marion E. Olson. However, each farmer who has signed a corn-hog contract is urged by J. D. Richards, county chairman of the association, to measure his own contracted acreage, and, in doing so, to take into account only the cultivated land, disregarding fence rows, grass and turn rows. Each signer will soon receive a copy of the completed contract which is now in preparation, County Agent Olson said. Mr. and Mrs. H. M. Knudsoii returned Monday night from a trip to Burlington and Quincy, HI., Mrs. Knudson remaining in Burlington to visit her sister, while Mr. Knudson attended an Iowa, Missouri and Illinois zone meeting on the graphic arts code at Quincy. He stated an Iowa meeting had been set in Des moines Friday for organizing the regional setup. All commercial printers in the state have been invited to attend this meeting. FORMER KAISER MAY 60 HOME Family Conference Held at German Ex-Ruler's Castle in Holland. DOORN, Holland, March 13. UP)-Former Kaiser Wilhelm may return to Germany as the result of a Ho- henzollern family council held in his castle here today. The former emporer of Germany, his wife, Princess Hermine, the kaiser's two sons, the princes Bitel Frederick and Augustus Wilhelm. and several generals including von Steulpnagel joined in the conference. Financial Diffieultle*. It is understood that the council considered the financial difficulties facing the royal family as a result of the Hitler government's ban on he export of moneys from Germany unless this cash is exchanged for joods. The Hohenzolierns hitherto have derived their incomes from various sources in Germany. It was reported that the Hitler government is unwilling to make an exception in the case of the former kaiser in its ban on money exports. Return Not Precluded. Circles close to the Doom house- told stated that the possibility o. the kaiser's return to his native land was not precluded under the circumstances. (Earlier in the day, m Berlin, Baron von Sell, chief Hohenzollern agent, stated that no reunion o£ the Hohenzollern family was planned m Doom, dismissing reports of such a conference as pure fabrications) Farmer Indicted for Bradley Attack Held LE MARS, March 13. /P--Hcnrj Lang, last of a group of fanners in dieted for assault on Judge C.
