FARM PRICES HOLDING GAINS Monthly Circular at Ames Gives Analysis of Situation. AMES, March 28.--Iowa farm prices, which advanced sharply during late January and early February, were "fairly well maintained' at this higher level through March 15, according to Agricultural Economic Facts, monthly circular published by the Iowa State college extension "service, which is to be issued goon. The Iowa farm price index is estimated in the circular at 6i per cent of the 1910-14 base level. Tins is a 1-point drop since Feb. 15, the circular says, due largely to slignt- ly lower hog prices. The index now stands at 20 points above its position of last year at this time, according to the circular. Prices of Iowa farm products advanced 9 points between Jan. If and Feb. 15, the circular points out It comments, "During this advance orices of things the farmer buys for use in consumption and production advanced from 116 per cent of pre-war to 118 per cent. This ad vance was so much slower than tin I advance-in- farm prices that thi purchasing power of Iowa farm pro ducts rose from 48 to .55 per cent o the 1910-14 level." Returns From Oregon.

"Dairy farmers generally can best ccomplish the reduction in output iroposed in the tentative dairy pro ;ram of the agricultural adjustraen' idministration by feeding thei herds less intensively," says O. E. Reed, chief of the Bureau of Dairy ndustry, United States department of agriculture. Mr. Reed cited results of experimental feeding work done by the jureau, which indicate that dairy farmers, by feeding less gram, and more roughage, may produce less milk and at the same time obtain a greater profit. "When we have a good quality of roughage to feed and we cut our full grain ration in two, we get approximately 10 per cent less milk than we get on the full grain feed- ,'no- " c a i H ATr Rpv1 "When We de- at in the rural districts of 12 pounds of oleomargarine are Did to every 100 pounds of butter.

(UP P STATEMENT BY WIRT EXPLAINED Higgins Claims He Heard Radical Call Roosevelt "Kerensky." NEW YORK, March 28. (.T)--The World-Telegram today related that President Roosevelt heard himself characterized as "the Kerensky of the American revolution" by George W. Christians, a Chattanooga, Tenn., proponent of money reform. The paper says the incident was disclosed by Dr. Raymond Moley editor of "Today" and member ot the so-called brain trust, which has been accused by Dr. William Wirt o Gary, Ind., of plotting a revolution in which Roosevelt would be re placed by "a Stalin." Moley said he recollected that Dr Wirt was at the time in Warn Springs, Ga., where the incident oc curred while Roosevelt was prcsi dent-elect. 1 Copy of Ixjtter. Moley received a copy of a letter which was sent to Representative Harold McGugin of Kansas by Walter M. Higgins, chairman of the strategy and action committee of the Associated Groups for Economic Liberty. The letter follows: "I think I can clear up the origin of the Kerensky story.

In iffects of Lightning Rods Being Analyzed The proportion of farm buildings quipped with lightning rods is nol definitely known, except in the tate of Iowa, where a careful esti mate indicates about 50 per cent During the period 1912-21, 28 rodded mildings in Iowa were destroyed b; ightning, with losses amounting t $87,979. In the same period 50 other buildings in the state '.ver destroyed by lightning, and th losses were $1,060,668. Thus th value of the rodded buildings de stroyed was only seven and seven-1 :enths per cent of the total, although the number exposed to lightning hazards was about 50 per cent. Very similar conditions probably prevail over the greater part of the midwestern United States, where it is believed that about half of the farm buildings, at least of the better class, are protected by rods. Go to Iowa City. HAYFIELD--Mrs. Joe Morton of Laurens, aged mother of Mrs. John CHne of this place, accompanied by her brother-in-law, Louie Turner of Curlew, went to Iowa City the first of the week, where Mrs. Morton will undergo a minor operation in the university hospital there. Home From Hospital. STILSON -- Miss Eunice Slagle, who has been in an Algona hospital the past 10 days, returned tome Monday. ent last year chiefly in response to rograms instituted under the Ag- icultural Adjustment act, Adminis- rator Chester C. Davis revealed to- ay in the first report of the Agri- ultural Adjustment administration ince it was started last year. Farm administrators in the report gave an account of their stewardship, listing accomplishments during 10 months of the act and sketching plans for the future. The report has been placed before President Roosevelt. "In the short time the act has been in operation, a partial measure of economic recovery has been brought to American agriculture," said Davis in a letter of transmittal to Secretary of Agriculture Henry A. Wallace. "Part of this recovery," he said, "was undoubtedly due to the recovery program, just getting under way." The full results of AAA efforts to restore agricultural purchasing power to pre-war levels have not been felt hut will become increasingly evident this year, Davis contended. Already, the report said, there has been striking improvement in :he economics condition of farm communities which has been reflected in industrial centers. Tlie report gives passing attention to problems of the future without specifying any definite plans. But the time is coming, it intimates, when there will be a single production control unit in each county, instead of one for wheat, one for corn and hogs, or one for cotton. And there may be a blanket contract for each farm covering every crop grown thereon and intended to keep all of them within reasonable bounds. Will Give Play 3 Nights. FLOYD March 28.--A three act play, "You Wouldn't Fool Me" will be given Friday evening and Saturday evening at the Towner school. Helen Moody is the coach. Mr. and Mrs Adrian Towner and Mr. and Mrs'. P. Schrader are sponsoring it. pend on roughage alone, we get about 30 per cent less milk than we get on full grain feeding. "This drop in production does not involve a corresponding drop in profits. Dairy farmers who plan to feed less grain and grow more roughage will benefit themselves and also agriculture as a whole. "Less intensive feeding of dairy cattle involves an increase in pasture and roughage acreage at the expense of cultivated crops. The shift, which is already taking place in many regions, has important long-time advantages. It helps to solve the grain surplus problems, and at the same time to reduce the output of livestock products. "At present about 70 per cent of our grain acreage produces feed for animals. Each such acre produces more animal subsistence than does an average acre of pasture and about the same as an average acre of roughage. Shifting from crops to pasture and roughages, therefore, not only tends to reduce animal feed, but when more pastures and roughages are planted at the expense of grain crops now used for animal feed, we can make the shift without, as so many suppose, adding to the grain surplus. "The dairy farmer's gross income may be less if he has his cows on roughage and nasture; but his cost of production will be less also. It i net income rather than gross incom that counts. "Farmers often strive to get the last pound of milk from a cow. They forget that there is a point of diminishing returns. "During the war this country plowed up about 40,000,000 acres of pastures. With foreign markets restricted and with burdensome surpluses being produced on those acres, it is time we put acreage back into grass and legumes. In all regions where grasses or legumes grow well there are opportunities to ihift advantageously from grains to grass and other roughage. In some regions legumes do not grow well. Recent scientific findings indicate, however, that other grasses cut m an immature state contain as much protein as do legumes cut at the ordinary stage. The shift to grass and roughage is practicable to some extent almost everywhere. "From a long-time viewpoint the shift would have other advantages. Erosion losses are terrific on many lands in cultivated crops. These same lands in pastures and legumes would be protected. Cultivated crops are hard on soil fertility. Pastures and legumes are a part answer to this problem. that I heard George W.

Patient With Visitors. "Mr. Roosevelt was patient with he two visitors--I thought he gave :hem too much time and attention. "I recall that Mclntyre grew alarmed over the nature and vigor of their task and telephoned the secret service at Washington to lave their records checked. I didn't myself regard them as dangerous; merely tedious. "They were well-dressed, fairly well spoken men. "Whether Wirt met them in Warm Springs, talked with them, or now knows them or their views I cannot say. I do know that Wirt was in Warm Springs on or about that time and that I talked with him. The records would quickly show whether his visit to Warm Springs coincided in time with theirs." Wirt Denies Report. GARY, Ind., March 28. (.T)--Dr. William Wirt today asserted that he did not hear George W. Christians, of Chattanooga, Tenn., characterize President Roosevelt as "the Kerensky of the American revolution" while the president wag visiting at Warm Springs, Ga. Concerning a published report that President Roosevelt had heard himself so characterized by the Ten- nesseean, and that Dr. Wirt was in Warm Springs at the time the incident occurred, Dr. Wirt said: "I was at Warm Springs and conversed with the president and Dr. Raymond Moley, but to my knowledge never met or talked with Dr. Christians. I heard no such remark during my stay there." Dr. Wirt said the information upon which he based his charge that members of the so-called brain trust were plotting: a revolution in which Roosevelt would be replaced "by a Stalin" was obtained directly from "brain trusters."
