18 M a s o n C i t y G I o b e - ,G a z e 11 e This Time of Year Look Out for Fire The time of year .is here when fire prevention^ measures should be maintained most carefully in Iowa, according to Harold Beaty, Iowa State college extension agricultural engineer. "Studies at the Iowa State college experiment station show that January, February and ' March comprise the period when fires are most frequent and do the greatest damage. The greatest number of dwelling fires Purpose of Breeder Mash The purpose o£ a breeder mash is to supply the hen with proteins, vitamins and minerals in such abundance as to enable her to store enough of these vital essentials in the egg, not only to assure a higher hatchability of better, stronger, more vigorous chicks; but also enough to carry the chicks through the critical baby chick period. . Such a mash is not needed for regular commercial egg production; but is o£ the utmost importance for the production o£ hatching eggs. Big Gain Special Breeder Egg Mash is made according to the latest tested and approved recommendations of poultry specialists and hatch- erymen.

Operation of heating systems ccounts for prevalence of dwell. ng 'fires during' the winter months. As a safety measure eaty suggests, make certain nat the draft is open and the heck is closed on the furnace or tove when the fire is started. Check the damper and airdraft ontrol. carefully before retir- ng for the night. As further measures to keep ire as your friend and not as our enemy, don't use gasoline ir kerosene to start or revive ires, and do keep the ashes in metal containers away from the uilding. Keep oil stoves and amps away from drafty loca- ions and away from curtains and other inflammable materials. Fill the fuel .tanks in day- ight away from flames. Careful attention to these safe:y measures will help reduce the number of dwelling fires and will cut down on the toll of to 1% million dollars property damage and loss of life which is the average annual cost of fire. LET EXPERT DO IT Extensive repair work on a tractor is a job for an able mechanic with a reasonable number of shop tools. It's not a job for just any tractor owner, advises E. L. Bargcr of the agricultural engineering staff at Iowa State college. Iowa's average corn yield was 8 bushels an acre larger than Illinois', about 10 bushels larger than that of Ohio and Indiana. An ideal temperature for storing potatoes is 37 to 40 degrees. ·PHERD'S cnvs DOBBIN'S DINNER--Rationing hasn't spoiled the diet of the dray horse yet as Mrs. Douglas Thompson, AVVVS member, and Zak Block (right) demonstrate as they provide a special holiday meal for Block's horse at Detroit. Cream Kept Too Long Is of Poorer Quality Frequent delivery of cream is an important step in keeping up quality. A. W. Rudnick, Iowa State college, extension dairy industry specialist, says that cream kept more than 3 days wiU not grade premium, and if the producer waits more than 4 days before delivering, he need not be surprised if his cream is second- grade. Flavors develop in cream which is kept too long and taint the butter which is made from it. Even cream which is delivered promptly may be less desirable because of silage flavors. It is advisable to feed silage after milking rather than before or during , the milking period. If silage is fed from bunks, the dairyman should judge t h e amount fed so that each cow will get no . more than 20-25 pounds per cow fed twice daily, or 40 to 50 pounds in all. Miscellaneous" flavors in cream during the winter may be prevented by opening the barn whenever weather permits and allowing it to air out thoroughly. Cleanliness should be practiced at all times.

STORE MEATY HOG AFTER WAR The hog that will be wanted after the war will be one that can be marketed at around 225 pounds without too much fat-a meatier type than is now generally being produced, say the swine breeding men at Iowa State college. Iowa Could Turn Out · Much Needed Lumber Farm woodlots and small sawmills can provide an important increase in wartime production of lumber in Iowa, provided workers to get out the timber and man the mills are available. That is emphasized in a report from Odell Julander, Iowa State college extension forester. During 1943, he says, the 1,100 sawmills in Iowa sawed about 5 million board feet of lumber a month. Most of this was produced in small mills. Large sawmills throughout ;he country now are running at full capacity with little chance of increased production. Numerous small mills, on the other hand, are running at only a fraction of their capacity because of shortage o£ help. Shortage of help is the greatest problem. Julander says that the needed lumberjacks must be recruited from off-season farm hands and workers previously engaged in non-essential'indus- tries. If every sawmill in Iowa could run at full capacity for one month about 85 million board feet of lumber could be sawed. The lumber, says the forester, could be used for building more farm buildings, poultry crates and egg cases, feeding and watering troughs, and other agri- Cultural articles, as well as for army truck shoes for ammunition workers, and bodies, gunstocks, aircraft, wooden FT and assault boats. Iowa woodlands contain sufficient ripe timber that the increase in production could be obtained without clear cutting. .Red squill will kill rats but is relatively harmless to domestic animals and humans. It is a good rat poison. The most- important use wheat is as human food. of HORSES WANTED for KILLING PURPOSES That Are Old, Blind, Lame, or With Other Blemishes HIGH PRICES PAID A.G. JORDAN 323 So.

In tests conducted by the college over a period o£ 16 years, biennial sweet clover plowed under gave higher yields o£ oats and corn than did the other 2 clovers when they were turned under. 'The comparison. was made in a 2-year rotation of corn' and oats. In one plot, oats were seeded without a legume. This plot was used as a check against | plots in which the clovers were plowed under. Taking the check plot as having a 100 per cent yield of corn, red clover had a value ol 105 per cent, Hubam 108 per cent, and biennial sweet clover, 114 per cent. Normally 10 per cent of the total number of trucks are replaced annually, but this year it will probably amount to not more than 1 per cent. For more and better eggs A good many of yon ponltry- men have told as yon like our Laying Mash. Many of you also come to us for your supply of Dr. Hess Products. We are now able to offer yon Dr. Bess Laying Mash with Dr. Bess Poultry Fan-a-min added --both in one bag! There are several good features to such an arrangement. First, of course, it saves you the trouble of handling two separate products. And then it makes certain that both \ products are blended together in just the right proportion so that every hen sets just the right amount. It puts before the hen the exact amount of Mash and the exact amount of Fan-a-min for maximum egg production. It gives-your hens the stuff to make eggs and the urge to lay--all out of one bag. We want yon to try Dr. Bess Laying Mash with Pan-a-min-blended in the same bag and ready to pour into your hoppers. We know you're going to like it. 301 So. Federal 434 FARMERS ELEVATOR PBONE Z7«
