SIXTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 18 1936 Better Social Life ... Better Schools NEWS AND VIEWS OF INTEREST TO FARMERS (THIS PAGE EDITED BY ARTHUR PICKFORD) "7-7 Better Roads e c h * £ £ SURVEY SHOWING BIG INCREASE IN FARROWED SOWS Slaughter Supplies of Hogs To Be Larger Next Summer. AMES--Iowa State college extension economists said today that at present it appears that the increase in the number of sows to i'arrow this spring as compared with the spring of 1935 will be at least as large as the 24 per cent indicated by the December pig sur- FARM B U R E A U N E W S A Weekly Feature Depicting Activities of Cerro Gordo County Organization. vey. It is true,, the economists said. that many February pigs were lost due to the cold weather but this will probably not be a very big factor in the total supply. "Slaughter supplies of hogs," the economists continued, "will be much larger this summer than they were last summer. On the basis of the size of the fall pig crop, an increase of from 30 to 35 per cent would not be surprising. "Another factor crease slaughter this-summer will be the increase in marketings o_f packing sows which will have farrowed during the January-June period. "The bulge in marketings from the fall pig crop usually comes in May and June taut may be a little late this year due to the tendency of producers to feed out their hogs to heavyweights. "The effect of tie larger supplies of hogs this summer will he offset to some extent by increased consumer demand for pork and lard."

Phone 23 o Iowa State College extension service, a; attractive or more livable horn grounds should be the goal of everj family in Iowa. A few trees, shrub*, and flowers carefully chosen ant well placed, an open lawn and a clean neat building group will usu ally make an attractive home. Cer taMy these few things are within reach of every Iowa family, he points out. "Before doing the actual planting of the home grounds a genera cleanup campaign should be insti tuted," he says. "Minor repairs and painting should be done also. tending to in- "The farmstead is the centra '" headquarters for all the farm activi ties. It should be planned so as bes to fit it to the use for which it is intended and for the people who ar to use it. Value Increased. "The value of an attractively landscaped home is increased man; times the actual cost of the plants besides making the community a more desirable place in which to live. "The main objects of all" our efforts to beautify our homes by plantings is to create a beautiful picture. But merely planting a few trees here and there will not give the desired results. To do this requires some knowledge of the plants we are to use, a sense of beauty, a fund of common sense and a wholesome imagination to see the completed planting as it will appear in 10 or 15 years. 'Our lives are influenced by beauty and things that we see. A constant view of ill-kept muddy pig yards is anything but inspiring. Tnese should be screened from view with trees and shrubs. Beautiful natural views should be improved by framing. "The proper selection of trees is equally as important as their loca- ion. We should plant the longlived lardwood trees such as the Amerian Elm, the Oaks and hard Maple. Almost never plant the Carolina Poplar, Cottonwoods and Soft Maple. These trees give, good results but are short lived and soft wooded. Even after 15 years they become a menace in every windstorm. They Should Fit. "Shrubs should be selected to fit the job we want them to do. We should use a shrub in a particular place, not because we like it; not because our neighbor has it but because its size and character fits ii for the particular place. "Beautifying our homes becomes a most alluring pleasure and hobby if we go about it in this manner." These points on farmstead plan- rung were brought out by Mr. Johnson with an illustrated lecture to the members of the rural young people's forum at their meeting 01 Monday evening.

The Cerro Gordo junior forum, an organization of rural young mgn and women, will co-operate with the .Young Peoples section, Iowa State college, in holding rural youth camp June 12, 13, 14 at Clear Lake, according to an announcement by Marion E. Olson, comity agent. This camp will be one of the six district camps planned for members of rural young peoples' organization in the state and will include i S or 10 north central counties. 1 The program of the camp will include discussion groups, recreational training and program planning. Topics such as "The Future of Agriculture," "What Kind of a Community Do We Want" and "Cooperative Organizations" will be discussed. Those attending will be taught how to lead others in various games so that they can act as recreational leaders in their local groups. Plans for the study of various educational topics which can be made part of the yearly program of the local group will be outlined for selection by the leaders attending the camps.

Iowa poultry and egg producers enter 1936 with confidence in their poultry enterprise following a successful termination of their 1935 production, according to A. D. Oderkirk, poultry marketing specialist of Iowa Extension service who was in the county Monday to discuss poultry marketing at Clear Lake. "Prices of both poultry and eggs in 1935 were higher than for several previous years due principally to lowered number of chickens and eggs produced as well as improved consumer demand and purchasing power," Mr. Oderkirk said. Marketing interests did not fare so well in selling eggs stored during the spring of 1935. Mild weather during the fall months in many parts of the United States resulted in good fall production and stored eggs were a loss to the persons storing them. While' some of these losses were regained during January and February due to the severe weather, it appears likely that persons buying eggs for storage will be conservative in their prices during the coming spring. Hatcheries report favorable prospects for chick orders during the present spring and more favorable feed costs for poultry feeds will likely result in increased production over last year. Northeast Iowa producers have prospects for an excellent poultry season due to lowered production costs; even with possibility of lower prices, should United States pro- ductibn show expected increases. Quality of poultry and eggs in northern Iowa has been one of the principal causes of better prices received. Graded selling of eggs is practiced most intensively in this area of the state and trends point to an increase in number of egg buyers purchasing eggs on this 'basis. Iowa with over 9 per cent of the poultry on farms in the United States has the greatest influence on eastern markets. Nearly 29 per cent of the eggs received at Chicago and 18 per cent of the eggs received at New York originates on Iowa farms. This means that what Iowa producers may do determines eastern market conditions to a large degree, either in respect to quality, amount of production, as well as values of poultry or eggs. EXTENSION MEN TO EXPLAIN NEW FARM PROGRAM Several Members of College Staff Attended Chicago Meeting. AMES--Members of the Iowa State college extension service staff are prepared to explain the new farm program under the soi conservation and domestic allot ment act to Iowa farmers as soon as the program is announced from Washington, Director R. K. Bliss said Wednesday. Several 'members of the colle, staff attended the regional confer ence to make recommndations for the new program at Chicago a week ago. A meeting was conducted at the college one day to familiarize staff members with the recommendations of the conference. The regional conference at Chicago, in its recommendations to Secretary of Agriculture Wallace, suggest that the state extension services be placed in charge of the educational work in connection with the soil conservation program.
