Allbaugh explained lhat all records will be handled confidentially. More Books Needed. Farmers in the drought section are especially urged to send in Iheir farm record books, Allbaugh said. More books are needed from that area to give a complete picture of drought conditions. He urged farmers who have not submitted their record books to obtain check sheets from their count3' agents. These sheets list the items needed in the record. All books must be complete. Submitted books should be sent to Ames, not Council Bluffs. At Hardware Convention.

Van Ness Co SETBACK SHOWN IN COMMODITIES Prices Show Slight Decline Last Week of January; Livestock Lower. AMES--For the first time since October, 1936, the department of labor commodity price index has exepriehced a setback, economists of the Iowa State college extension service reported today. But despite the setback, recorded the last week in January, Ihe index figure, 85, was the highest in seven years for that week. Lower, livestock prices, largely the result of a demoralized wholesale meat trade caused by strikes, Hoods and unseasonable weather, were responsible. Agricultural prices, affected by these disturbing factors, "will be subject to unseasonable and unpre- diclable x f lucluations." the economists declared, "until these conditions right themselves." Figures procured from the department of labor show, thai while the index of all commodities in late January was 85, the index ot farm products was 90, and of foods only, 86. A year before the respective figures were 80, 7R and 82, and in 1935 they were 79, 79 and ail. The upward trend in index prices began as fat- back as 1933, which had index figures of 60, 41. and 54. Drought and increased consumer demand have been responsible for rising farm prices, while demands for increased industrial production have been significant in rising industrial prices.

The Lake Mills Graphic reports that the Union Creamery company of Emmons held its a n n u a l meeting Tuesday of last week. The annual report of Ihe secretary-treasurer.

The Leader and Signal at Garner contains a cut of the building and stales that Ihe company is free ot debt and with all depreciations considered it is still valued at $30,834.5.3. The building is six years old. Last year they manufactured 588,047 pounds ot butter-, an increase of 29 per cent over the previous year. The new building is of glazed tile. They furnish pasteurized milk for the city of Garner. The organization is set up under the revolving system. One cent per pound is set aside for every pound of bullerfat delivered. Every producer pays a 50-cent membership into the organization, making it a hundred per cent membership. At Ihe close of Ihe year all the indebtedness has been paid through the revolving f u n d , making the plant free of all debts. Had Fret! Lunch. Five hundred and fifty participated in a free lunch which was served Friday, and this was followed with a program. Dr. M.

The same is Irue of other animals. Many f a r m s have traces ot six or eight breeds ol c a t t l e in their herds. All Available. Good breeding slock of all popular breeds is available in 'practically every county in Iowa. Therefore, the only question would be lo select the breed we like best, weeding out Ihe others as soon as convenient and replacing them with Ihe chosen breed; always keeping in mind that we should get the best animals we can a f f o r d . They need not be registered, though a registered sire would be profitable. If every farmer in a community would follow this practice for a term of ten years, that community would become noted far distant for its superior flocks and herds.
