TWENTY-SIX' MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 29 · 193* GAIN IN YEAR IS SHOWN BY INDEX Farm Price Is Point Lower Than Last Month, 20 Above 1933. AMES, March 29. OZP--The Iowa farm price index for the month end- tog March 15, though one point lower than for the previous month, is now 64 per cent of the pre-war level and represents an increase of 20 points above this time last year, says the monthly economic facts circular of the Iowa State college extension service. The farm price index rose from 56 per cent of its pre-war level to 65 per cent during the month ending Feb. 15, but'the circular shows that the prices of goods Iowa farmers buy for consumption and use in production advanced from 116 to 118 .per cent of pre-war level during the period. This slower advance brought an increased purchasing power of Iowa farm products from 48 to 55 per cent of the 1910-1914 level, the circular said. Several Factors Responsible. Several factors have been responsible for the increase in the index irimber since the year opened. The circular cited that cattle prices were highest for the week ending March 10 than they have been since last September. The circular said that though an advance in price of good and choice 'cattle between now and June would bfe contrary to normal season trend, the small movement of cattle into the corn belt last fall and the reduced number of cattle on feed at the first of the year indicate such a rise. Though hog slaughter at the principal markets has been reduced in the early part of March, hog prices have also settled to a slightly lower level by the middle of March and the circular says that the full effect of the emergency slaughter campaign last fall probably has not been felt yet. Ratio Is Unfavorable. The corn-hog ratio continues unfavorable for the producer of hogs and if many hog raisers decide to sell hogs early from the last fall IN U.S. FOR VISIT Stehi'o Vincent, president ol the republic of Haiti,.is photographed on shipboard upon his arrival in New York City for a visit in'the United States. He was welcomed by a delegation of United States and Haitian, officials. crop, the chances are that reduction may be postponed until late summer, the circular adds. The 170,000,000 bushels of corn in storage on farms as security for loans acts as a stabilizer for the corn market and no great weakening in corn prices is likely unless a favorable new crop outlook shoulc cause it, the circular said. EARLY HATCHING IS PROFITABLE Whitfield Says Late Chicks Seldom Bring as Good Returns. AMES, March 29.--Iowa hatch- erymen and poultry breeders have a supply of good chicks on the market which will be more profitable o invest in now than the later hatches, said W. R. Whitfield, poultry specialist in the extension serv- ce at Iowa State college, yesterday. "Early maturing, pullets lay eggs when the market is- high and cockerels frequently may be sold when 2. to 3. pounds-in weight at jigher prices than when sold later," Mr. Whitfield said. Many "sideline" poultry raisers are misinformed as to the economy of late brooding, according to Mr. Whitfield. He said records show that ate chicks are seldom as profitable aa those hatched early. The small saving in fuel cost for late brooding amounts to but a cent or two a chick over the early broods, he said. "Good poultrymen prefer to brood chicks in cool weather because of ie: resulting larger pullets. Small pullets are culled in the fall." Mr. Whitfield continued that "poultry raisers may overcome the handicap of inadequate brooding equipment by employing emergency measures. Insulating the ceiling and walls of the brooder house with discarded box cartons will conserve warmth. A layer of dry sand under the litter will improve drafty floors, and stuffing cracks around the doors and windows of the brooder house will help to retain the heat. In the.event of cold weather chicks less than a week old may be placed in chick boxes at night." Mrs. Eastman HI.
