. FOURTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 22 1934 FARM ACCOUNTS INTEREST SHOWN BY MANY IN IOWA Demand for Accurate Record System Stimulates Plan to Keep Figures. AMES, March 22. UP)--Increasing demand for an accurate record oi farm business has spurred interest _ among Iowa farmers in the keeping of form records, L. G. Allbaugh, oi the farm management extension service of Iowa State college, said to' day. One of the most important reasons for the increasing interest in farm acouuts is that farmers will be required next winter to furnish statements of "proof of compliance with the corn-hog contract," Mr. Allbaugh explained. Although record keeping in connection with the adjustment program is not compulsory, these figures can best be kept in some sort of farm record, he said. The farm record also provides figure which may be used in making assessor and crop reports and in filing state and federal income tax reports. Prevent Double Payment. Many farmers, according to Mr. Allbaugh, have found that the records have' prevented them from making double payment of bills. Other advantages, he said, include procuring a fair credit rating, provision of a net worth statement which 'is one of the best measurements of financial progress, determination of profit or loss of the entire farm business and locating If You Need A New Plate- Buy It Now! $1450 An exceptional sale of our very best plate for a limited time.

This book provides a place for keeping records dj jroduction and sale or disposal oi oasic commodities. It also will assist in making assessor and crop reports To procure the utmost advantage ;rom a farm record, however, the operator must keep a complete account, Mr. Allbaugh explained These complete record books may oe obtained from the Extension' Serice at Iowa State college, he said More than 3,000 of them have al- eady been sent out for the use of owa farmers in 1934. Some Revisions Made. C. O. Davis, administrator .of the agricultural adjustment administration has suggested, Mr. Allbaugh said, that farmers desiring a complete farm record avail themselves of the books prepared by the extension service. The Iowa farm record book is essentially the same as that used for the past several years, although.a number of revisions have been made this year to make it more effective and more easily kept. A complete farm record, Mr. Allbaugh said, will provide all the information necessary in filing state or federal income tax reports next year. He estimated that as a result of the recent state income tax law, about one-third of all Iowa farmers will have to file returns. Complete Records Necessary. Many creditors require the filing of "net worth" statements before new loans are advanced, Mr. All baugh said, and complete farm records provide all necessary data for those statements. The time required for keeping farm records will average about five minutes a day, he declared, and inventories will require an additional hour or two at the beginning and end of the year. Extension specialists have been discussing farm records at district meetings with county agents this week. Additional meetings wet'? today at Clarion and Mount Pleasant and tomorrow at West Union ana Cedar Rapids. County agents will conduct township meetings later to discuss farm records.
