14 M a s o n C i t y G l o b e - G a z e t t e Corn Belt in High Farm Living Level Iowa and the corn belt afford the highest level ot farm family living ot any major type oi farming area in the United States. However, the living level of Iowa rural non-farm families is lower than that in some other states. That is the conclusion of Ray E. Wakeley, Iowa State college sociologist, based on a study of living conditions on farms and' in rural non-farm areas by the division of farm population and rural welfare. This division is a part of the bureau of agricultural economics. United States department of agriculture. In the study the Iowa farm family living index stood at 131, compared to the 100 standard over the United States. In the Iowa rural non-farm family index, the. Iowa median was 126, compared to the standard of 100. "Some of the more obvious reasons for the general superiority of Iowa larm family living are inherent in Iowa's favorable geographical situation," Wake- ley says. "Iowa agriculture is furthermore characterized by a favorable combination of crop and livestock enterprises, which not only tends to increase average incomes but also to stabilize them. 'Several reasons help to explain why Iowa non-farm family indexes do not rank favorably with the indexes for those along either the north Atlantic or the Pacific coast, Iowa has few local industries; small towns are farther from cities; coal mining counties cut down the Iowa average; and recent years have been marked by s decided tendency on the part ol Iowa farmers to increasingly patronize larger town and city centers of more. than 2,500 population." Wakeley predicts that trad: centers with less than 1,000 population will have difficulty ierving Iowa farmers effective y after the war. Even befon :he war state planning board studies indicated that man; places with'less than 600 popu iaticn were finding it difticul ;o maintain adequate rura service. Small towns will continue to have a worth-while place, but they must study their situation well and work closely with farm people in order to maintain it. according to the sociologist. Iowa farmers have good prospects of a record income o£ 1.5 billion dollars in 1943 and this offers a distinct possibility for improved community services. "Rural people in other states with smaller incomes have better rural library services, rural health service and better rural schools," he concludes.

New Alfalfa- Needs Special Fertilizers For seeding alfalfa, with or without a nurse crop, 250 pounds of commercial fertilizer to the acre should be applied. This recommendation, made by Iowa State college agronomists, .is base on field tests conducted throughout the state during the last 5 years. When alfalfa is seeded on average soils under average management conditions, an 020-0 formula, consisting oE 20 percent phosphoric acid, is recommended. For sandy, high-lime, or relatively poor soils, an 0-20-1Q formula, which includes 10 percent potash, will. yield better results. Since alfalfa will not grow well on acid soils, lime should always be applied on such soils before fertilizer is used. The supply of commercial fer. tilizer for 1944 is limited. Farmers are urged to place" their orders with local dealers just as soon as their needs are determined. When it is received the fertilizer should be stored dry, off concrete and not more than 8 bags high to avoid caking. If you plan to use commercial fertilizer and want to put it on with a-corn planter attachment, order the attachment early, soils men at Iowa State college suggest.
