Saying he had been studying the Iowa liquor situation since adjournment of the forty-sixth session two years ago, Representative ^*-?n c"-vai^=d the bill in the belief ft would eradicate wholesale nbuses oi "unlicensed and unregulated sale of liquor." The bill would not repeal the present liquor commission or state store setup, for its provides only for the sale of liquor to be consumed on the premises. The stores would continue under commission supervision for sale of package goods and to act as wholesaling agent to those places licensed lo sell by the drink. Would License Clubs. Hotel buffets, clubs and private buffets would be licensed under the local option clause which provides that communities which voted for repeal may have an election within 120 days after passage of the act. Those areas vetoing the repeal act could not hold an election until the next regular municipal or general election. When the question has been voted upon it can not be voted upon again within four years. Roan said he was convinced in presenting his bill that lowans do want liquor available for sale by the drink but that these same lowans want sales of this nature closely regulated. The bill provides that buffets and hotel buffets could have bul one entrance, and it would ban dancing and the sale of food ir such places. Sale in clubs woulc be limited to the membership Buffets could not sell between the hours of 11 p. m., and 7 a. m., or 1 a. m., to 7 a. m., and no sales would be permitted op Sundays 01 holidays. City councils would be permitted to zone their cities for such sates and no clubs or buffets could be licensed in prohibitcc areas. Population Limitation.

On this thcoo two buffets would be permitted in towns of less than 2,000; thrc in towns up to 3,500; four in town _ .lip.-to. 5,000; five in towns up t 7,000; six in towns up to 9.000, an seven in towns up to 11,000, On 1 additional buffet would be per mitted for each additional 3,00 peculation over 11,000. The license schedule provide* fixes a minimum of 5600, inereas ing to' SI,500 and regulated upon the population of the area apply ing. It would require the postin of a S3,000 good-conduct bond, am violations would result in fines t 51,000 to $5.000, with mandatory revocation of licenses.

JIOj H fEOERAl-MASOH CITY] Improves Farm, EDITOR'S NOTE: Twcnly- cight years' experience in growing and processinR of sugar beets in Iowa ts the experience tack of (he article below, written by Earl C. Moore, manager of the Mason City plant of the American Crystal Suffar company and niember of tlie advisory board of the Great Iowa commission. By EARL C. MOO11E All agriculture in the United states is interested in soil conservation or soil building. Soil build- ng means just one thing--at some 'uture time there will be a greater crop production. A profitable crop production may not mean increased prices as many persons be- icve. The safest way lo get a profitable crop production is to lave a well-balanced crop rota- Lion. When Napoleon was emperor o) France, along about the time we were considering the purchase ol Louisiana, and when Jefferson was president, there were severa things that were very annoying to the French people. First, ihey were compelled to buy their suga from England or her colonies anc Napoleon figured that the money France spent for sugar lurnishec England with the sinnows ot war and enabled England to figh France. . Was Second Biff Problem. The second great problem was that of agriculture. Crop production had been receding for many 3 r cars and wheat production as low as nine bushels an acre The nation had to be fed and fooc production was being curtailed. 1 was discovered t h a t sugar coulc be produced from the beet. An experimental factory hnd been buil in 1802 at Passay--near Paris During the next nine years experimentation led to the discovery that the culture of sugar beets improved the soil. 1,000,000 franc was appropriated by imperial de cree. The farmers were compelled ti grow a certain number of acres o beets, and in two years, 334 bee sugar factories were built · in France. From that day to this there has been very ilittle suga imported to France and cane suga was tabooed. The finest candie and pastry in the world are mad in France and all out of bee sugar. In the early day the suga per cent in the beet w a s ' G pc cent. T i l r o u g h selection SIT breeding, the beet has been but! up to as high as 22 per cent. Adopted .SiiRar lictU. The Germans, not to be outdnn by the French, adopted the suga beet in their rotation and did mov (or the agricultural developmen of the beet, while the French turn ed their efforts more to the fac tory end or the manufacture o sugar from the beet. These discoveries led to th adoption of a root crop in the cro rotation with a very great in crease in the production of a other crops. It was impossible fo Europe to have a proper rootcro j rotation if the roots were confine to potatoes, rutabagas or othc roots as the production was muc more t h a n they could consume s the beet very naturally found i place in the rotation. England wanted to improve he soil conditions and not until th World war did she discover th necessity of the sugar beet, ling land is a great consumer of mu ton and she adopted t h e . t u r n i p a i root crop to be added to her rotation and then fed the turnips to sheep. After the World \var, with her sugar supply shut o f f , England offered a bounty for the production of sugar with the result that they have 18 factories at the present time. Has Nine Factories. Denmark is one European country that stands high in agriculture and they have 9 factories in that small country. Denmark practices a six year crop rotation--1 wheat, 2 beets, 3 barley, 4 and 5 clover and grass, 6 oats and 7 beets. In the United Stales, we experienced about the same reduction in producing wheat as was experienced in Europe. At Grand Forks, wheat production was as low as 12 bushels and following beets the llesch Heads Mitchell Rural Young Persons OSAGE--The vural young people of Mitchell county enjoyed a leigU ride Friday evening at the Robei-l Kleckner home near St. Insgar.

Hu.xtable Drug Co. reduction has come back to 3 nd 40 bushels an acre. In Iowa, i not uncommon to grow 7 ushels of oats, 65 bushels of con nd BO lo 65 bushels of baric fter bcels. While beets are called a deplel- ig crop and clover a soil building rop, we can take a field and lant one-half to clover and one- alf to beets and the following ear plant the whole field to corn ·r small grain, and the land 'lanted to beets will produce more nan the land planted to clover. "ust how you can call beets a de- ileting crop snd clover a soil uilding crop will always remain i mystery. Is Cheapest Method. A good many years ago, in the j lays of introduction of the rag- doll method of seed corn testing,' he farmers were told by high "lulhovity that the proper crop ro- ation was two crops of corn and one crop of oats. This constant ;rain and corn crop rotation has produced the acid soil condition which now confronts us and makes it necessary to lime the soil. It was necessary for Europe to introduce root crops for the proper crop rotation and it will be just as necessary for us in the United States to follow their example. It is the cheapest method o£ soil building and i£ we can produce a root crop that will be a substitute crop and not a competitive crop, and at the same time create jobs by the wholesale to take care of our unemployment, it should not lake a compulsory decree such a? Napoleon issued to I^rancc to build 334 sugar factories--rather our good common sense should welcome such an industry. Two Girls Missing From Carroll Living in Salt Lake City CARROLL, f/P)--Relatives June Ecklund, 16, and Ruth Harrison, 14, Carroll girls missinr, since Dec. 20 when they left here to hitch hike to Banks, Ore., received a letter Monday informing them the girls are living in Salt Lake City, Utah. Search for the girls was started after a blizzard swept their route and relatives, not hearing from them, feared they might have perished in the storm. Authorities said the girls, who | intended to visit the Harrison girl's f a t h e r in Banks, would be returned to Carroll. *£*"^ Pork Cuts Decline 12 to 24 Per Cent | CHICAGO, iT) -- Most 'fresh pork cuts declined 12 to 24 pel- cent in wholesale markets during January, the Institute of Amcrica'n Meat Packers' Review said Monday. Wholesale prices of beef, veal and dressed lamb and most smoked meats showed l i t t l e change. Hog marketings during the month apparently were about 5 per cent larger* than a year ago but 20 to 25 per cent less than in December, the review showed. Normally, marketings in .January show a slight seasonal increase over those of December. Decorah Artist's Work Shown at Kansas City DECORAH--Two paintings created by Miss Dorothy Barfoot. daughter of Dr. A. F. Barfoot of Decorah, wore exhibited in the state art contest held at Kansas City, Mo. The subject of the paintings was one of the beauty spots near Decorah, known as "Hog's Back." The picture included part o fthe hills back of Pulpit Rock park. Natural colors were used also in the painting o£ the old Ad- diken brewery on the Henry Lubke farm near Decorah. The painting was created during the summer, and the lilacs and trees in natural colors make a charming color study. Miss Barfoot is head of Hie department of art at the Kansas Slate college of agriculture at Manhattan, Kans.
