This noney was originally planned to oc used by the hunters. "The money was raised by selling the pelts of the foxes that were killed in this year's hunts. Again it is our conviction that there is no community in the slate where there is more ot a spirit of helpfulness for those in distress than is always shown in this vicinity when the need arises." Â· Large Crowd at Supper. W O D E N -- An oyster supper was served to a large crowd at the community hall Friday evening. The supper was under Ihe sponsorship of a group of fox hunters and was free to the entire community. A dance was held follow- ing the supper and was also well attended.

Slunkard farm During the month of December F. S. Johnson, living two miles northeast ot Ida Grove, noticed evidence of the killing of hen pheasants on three different occasions. The killings had taken place near a pheasant feeding stalion near his farm. In each case Ihe tracks of the predator and the trail oÂ£ the pheasant as it was dragged led to a den, supposedly that of a fox, located on the banks of the Maple river. The birds were evidently devoured within the den. .lohnson set a to:: trap inside the entrance to the den and on Dec. 27 Hie killer was trapped. . I t proved to be a very large and fierce white mate house cat. It apparently had gone wild as many cals have been known lo do. The killer was killed and no more pheasants have been found destroyed in t h a t vicinity. The farmers in the vicinity of Elmore, Minn., arc planning to purchase a fire truck for use in tlie rural district adjacent to that town, the city having notified the farmers that the fire department will not answer future calls. 1.

This fact is brought out in the January issue oC Agricultural Economic Facts, lo\va extension scr\ r icc publication, which goes lo ircss this week.

In the business world, labor diff i c u l t i e s loom as the larycst question mark on the horizon, the economic review points out, but as yet strikes h a v e had l i t t l e ' e f f e c t on the general business situation. Large volumes of u n f i l l e d orders in the steel, automobile and textile industries add a substantial note to optimistic business forecasts. Wilh these three industries opera- " ling at near capacity levels during tlie first h a l t of 1937, continued improvement in consumer incomes and a consequent reflection n increased lartn income seems probable.

Indications point to continued strength in the c;ittlc inarlcel, sic- cording to Agricultural Enonomiu Facts. Tlie number o[ well-lin- isliccl callle marketed during the f i r s t six months oC this year will be smaller than during the same period oÂ£ 193G in view ot high J r a i n prices and tlie reduction oC cattle on Iced. This Tact, together with increasing consumer demand, is likely to maintain and perhaps strenglnen prices o[ better grades. Prices ot lower grades ot slaughter cattle are expected to advance at least as much-*s-.Ihcy-tisuaHy- do in the tirst six months, because oC the small total slaughter in prospect and probable reduction in hog supplies. HOK marketings during the remainder oC Ihe October 193G-Scp- tembcr 1037 marketing year are expected to be r e l a t i v e l y ' l i g h t , compared lo the heavy market- ings ot the October-December period. Larjrer Supply in Sprint:. The review points out t h a t "ifc seems probable t h a t greatest reduction in winter r u n s w i l l occur d u r i n g February and March, followed by n period of more a b u n d a n t supplies as last fall's crop comes on lo Hie market and another ' t h i n ' spol in the offerings Uiler in Ihe s u m m e r . Both the volume and t i m e of s u m m e r mar- ketings, however, will depend to some extent upon the crop prospects during 1 J837. Favorable prospects w i l l not only tend to hold hogs to heavier weights on cheaper feeds which w i l l be available, but w i l l also hold a larger proportion of t o t a l hogs on forms as breeding stock." Continued improvement in hoR prices is expected as the decline in supplies becomes more noticeable. Reduction in m a r k e t lamb receipts, noticeable in tlie last toui- weeks has resulted in price increases. Further advances in both ewe atid l a m b prices seem probable in view of diminishing receipts. A combination ot factor. 1 ; is leaving wool in a relatively strong position. T.arjre Storage Hflldincs. Because of heavy slot-age holdings a n d the c u r r e n t l y u n f a v o r able feed-egg ratio, it is not expected that there wil be the u s u a l spring advance to raise poultry prices in the Ift.'tS spring' levels. Spring egg prices may nvcragn higher t h a n in the spring ot 1936, however, as increased purchasing power seems likely to o f f s e t increased supplies. Higher livestock prices may s t i m u l a t e consumption of p o u l t r y products. A normal decline in butler prices is expected 'from now u n t i l June, the review states. Grain prices a n be expected to r e m a i n at about tlie current level d u r i n g the next month because of the short supplies and favorable outlook for livestock prices.
