In establishing corn acreage !im- lis under the 1937 farm program, the Cerro Gordo county agricultural conservation committee will consider the normal corn acreage for the farm and the acreage which would be in conformity with good farming practice, J. D. Richardson', county chairman, explained as the township and county committees this week started to set soil conserving and soil depleting bases and corn acreage limits for each farm. Following the training school conducted in Mason City Saturday by Fred Stover, fieldman for county and township committeemen, the committees have started the actual work o£ putting the program into effect. Much of the preliminary work is already finished since figures on farm acreage and other information obtained last year arc being used in the 1937 program. Final establishment o£ bases and limits will await acreage allowances to be received from the state committee by the middle of February. Relation between corn acreage in the county and all cropland in the coimly, soil productivity topography, and other factors, will be considered by county committees in recommending individual limits that will be equitable-between farms in a county or community. Can't Exceed Limits. The total of the corn acreage limits set for individual farms in a county cannot exceed the county corn acreage limit. The corn acreage limits will provide Jor a total corn acreage slightly less than the 1936 planted acreage. When the corn acreage on a farm exceeds the limit established, a deduction will be made at the same rate per acre as the general diversion payment. Although an estimated 55,608,000 acres of corn were planted in the north central region in 193G, estimated harvest acreage, because of drought and consequent abandonment, was reduced to approximately S 1,604,000 acres. Corn acreage limits in the north central region for 1937 should result in a harvested acreage of 54i200,000 acres, assuming normal abandonment. , Is Soil Depleting: Crop. Mr. Stover pointed out that corn is the most soil-depleting o£ all crops grown extensively in the com belt; ( h a t soil-conservation objectives of the program would be defeated by an increase in corn acreage that might be encouraged by high prices; that corn'is not used as a nurse crop for soil-conserving crops; that expansion in corn acreage probably would be made at the expense of acreage of small grains used as nurse crops for soil-conserving crops; and that small grains will be needed for early season livestock feeding. Inclusion of the corn acreage limit in the 1937 program was not designed to reduce corn acreage. It was felt, however, that it would be desirable to include a provision which would m a i n t a i n normal balance between acreage nf corn and of small grains and which would tend to prevent over-expansion of corn acreage and a consequent return to pricp-dcpressing surpluses.

The score for Ihe girls was 12 to 10. Forms for filing returns of income for 1936 have been sent to persons who .filed returns last year. Failure to receive a form, however, does not relieve a lax- payer of his obligation to file his return and pay the tax on time, on or before March 15 if the return is made on the calendar year basis, as is the case with most individuals. Forms may be obtained upon, request, writlen or personal, from ' the offices of collectors. Persons whose net income for 1935 was derived chiefly from salary or wages and was not in excess of !?5,000 should make their returns on form 1040A. Persons whose net income was in excess of §5,000, or, regardless of amounl, was derived from a business, profession, rents or sale of property, arc required to use a larger form, 1040. Failure lo use the proper form presents difficulties to both the tax-, per and the Bureau of Internal Revenue. Therefore, it is emphasized that a taxpayer engaged in a business or profession from which he derived a net income of less than $5,000 is required to use the larger form. The return must be filed with the collector of internal revenue for the district in which the lax- payer has his elgal residence or principal place of business on or before midnighI nf March 15, 1937. The Ux may be paid in f u l l nt (he t i m e of f i l i n g the return or in four equal i n s t a l l m e n t s , due on nr before March 15, June 15, September 15, and December 15.

A shorl in Ihe wiring was responsible for a fire in a truck owned by the Rye Construction company at 4:15 o'clock Saturday afternoon at the intersection of Fifth street and Madisou avenue southwest.

Davies and family, now residents of Aliquippa, 20 miles norlliwcst of Pittsburgh, have escaped any discomforts because of floods, it was learned Monday in a communica- t i o n from Ihe former Mason City minister. "Inquiries have come tn us wondering as to our situation in the flood area," said Mr. Davies. "Beginning Jan. 17, the rain came down ceaselessly, day and nigiu for one solid week. The sun did not shine once. There was no snow to melt as we have had but two light snows all winter and none was on the ground at the time. Had to Go Somewhere. "With so much water from a general rain, it had to flow some place and the Allegheny and Mon- ongohela were the natural drainage in this section. The highest in Pittsburgh was 34.5 feet, which was just shorl of flooding the main business houses near the junction of these two rivers. The water did not rise over the stvcct by the river at the Golden Triangle. "Several towns down the Ohio from Pittsburgh were flooded. These arc on lower ground. As for Aliquippa the steel mill runs for four miles along the river and not even this was flooded this year. The town bises back from the mill and consequently no one in Aliquippa was touched by the flood. Not Flooded This Year. "Twenty-five feet is called flood stage for the Allegheny river. Last spring the river rose to 40 feet and flooded some four city blocks of Pittsburgh. So this year our district has escaped. When you t h i n k of 80 feet of water such as some of the Ohio river towns have been enduring one cannot imagine the suffering. "Personally we live upon a high Knocked Unconscious Railroad Station at Garner. Corneleo Monteon, 24, who lives at 417 President avenue southwest Mason City, was slugged Sunday night while he was working as assistant agent for the Milwaukee railroad station at Garner. A report o£ the incident was made Monday to Hancock county authorities. Monteon was b a n k i n g a fire ii the s t a t i o n , shortly aftel- the t r a i n pulled out, when n man approached him and struck h i m . Before the slugger knocked Mon- teon unconscious, Monteon succeeded in striking his assailant. The slugger, who was believed to have suffered an injured arm in the struggle, was about 5 feel 6 inches iaJ] anri wore a sheep lined coat, Monteon told officers. Nothing was taken from the station. vcre a total loss. Mr. and Mrs. G.

Mason City high school's national championship band opened the program Saturday night with a 45 minute concert which was broadcast over KGLO.
