There were 2 more sows with 18 fall pigs in their litters but Louise had tough luck with them. She bought the sows with the 'understanding that they had been .vaccinated for cholera but soon after they had farrowed they got sick, one after the other, and both sows and their litters died. "It acted like slow cholera," insisted Louise and added that the neighbors had cholera. _ "It, was cholera," declared Lydia. "The man from the rendering plant said so." BONEMEAL SUBSTITUTE ;Defluorinated or acid phosphate may be used in mineral mixtures in place of bonemeal if it can't be obtained. C. C. Culbertson of Iowa State college recommends this formula: Ground limestone, 68 pounds; defluori nated or acid phosphate, 10 pounds; salt, 20 pounds, and iron oxide, 2 pounds. can be obtained for electric fencing it will be an .important aid to food production, say agricultural engineers at-Iowa.State college. Short Course for 4-H Boys Here Jan. 31 One of a series of 9 district short courses for 4-H club boys is to be held at Mason City Jan. 3, arid Feb. 1. Edward F. Gabel, state 4-H boys' club leader, explains that the district events will replace the short course formerly held on the Iowa State college campus each year during Christmas vacation. Representation at each short course will include the 5 boys' 4-H club county officers or other official delegates, several local leaders, the chairman of the county boys' 4-H club committee, and the county extension director from each county in the district. As much help as possible will be given the delegates in carrying out their respective parts of the county 4-H club program. The 2 assistant state boys' 4-H club leaders, Gabel and G. A. Lineweaver, wi!l attend the short courses to discuss 1944 projects and other club activities. ATTENTION FARMERS BETTER BABY CHICKS COST LESS AT WARDS Here's proof--Wards Chicks pay Bigger Profits. The average .hen lays about 100 eggs a year--barely enough to pay for her keep with no profit for her owner. Even Wards lowest grade Chicks come from better than average production stock and WARDS TOPGRADE CHICKS are from stock that lays 100 .. TO 200 MORE EGGS PER YEAR than average. It costs as much to feed an ordinary 100 egg a year hen as it" costs to feed a high producing Wards Hen. Wards Chicks are quality graded and hatched under the National Poultry Improvement Plan,- Every flock producing eggs for hatching B.W.D. tested and U. S. approved. We have scheduled our chicks for spring delivery starting in February. Come in now and place your order for Baby Chicks. - Don't Be Disappointed Later WARDS FARM STORE SCORE CALLS FOP. MOO!--There are many things one might logically expect a symphony orchestra conductor to receive on his birthday, but assuredly not a cow! However, Artur Rodzinski, conductor of the New York Philharmonic, received Tulip, a pedigreed Guernsey cow, from the orchestra's board of directors on bis 50th birthday. Mrs. Rodzinski is giving the conductor a few pointers on milking. Regardless of whether your tractor is supposed to be able to run on other kinds of fuel, better use gasoline during the winter, agricultural engineers at Iowa State college say. Store Frozen Parsnips in Paper Lined Basket L. C. Grove, Iowa State college extension horticulturist, recommends a basket heavily lined with paper as a storage place for frozen parsnips brought indoors. Parsnips shrivel rapidly when exposed to the openair and many leave them in the garden or bury them in a pit. Roots stored under these conditions do not shrivel. . Parsnips stored indoors should be well covered with a thick layer of paper and stored in a room at 40 degrees F. or below. Or, the basket may be placed on the back porch and covered with blankets. Electric Fence Can Be Farm Labor Saver Electric fencing is past the experimental stage and in S943 proved on many an Iowa farm that it has a definite place in the food production program. Iowa State college extension agricultural engineers predict that farmers who are able to obtain the equipment for installing an electric fence in 1944 will find it an important labor-saver. Although electric fence may be installed in many locations where a permanent fence might otherwise be built, such as lines between farms, roadways, lanes, exercise pens and along drain- ageways, it is especially useful as a temporary fence. Strips planted on the contour, legumes planted next to corn or other cultivated crops may be pastured easily when they are closed off with an electric fence. It is easily moved as conditions require, and is a saver of materials as well as labor. Controlling livestock and protecting crops with old fence is another place where electric fence can lit into the farming program for the coming year. An old barbed wire fence which otherwise would have to be rebuilt, may be made to last awhile longer by insulating orie^ wire with porcelain insulators and connecting an electric fence controller. Pig Scare Leaves Soldier in Lather With the 2nd Army in Tennessee, (JP)--Cpl. Theodore Van Dam of New York City saw 6 pigs stampeding toward his tent. The leading one foamed at the mouth. Van Dam fled, shouting SURE, i UKE SHAVIN'CROM BUT YOU MADE A- PIC GOT "mad pig, mad pig!" Next morning, after the corporal had been commended tor sounding the alarm, he prepared to shave. He found his. shaving cream tube had been "chewed open and licked clean. It's ilie "above average" yield of eggs you get from your hens thai determines IIOH- profitably your Bock pay* ont.
