MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 30 ·! 1934 RETURNS TO NORTH CENTRAL GROUP FARMERS SHOW GAINS PROFITS STILL BELOW NORMAL Allbaugh States Net Income $2,227 in 1933; 1932 Had $805 Loss. AMES, March 30.--Business for farmers in the North Central Iowa Farm Business association was looking- up in 1933 but it has a long way to go before it reaches the normal level. This fact is indicated in the annual report of the association, including fanners in the territory around Ackley, 'just completed by L. G. Allbaugh, extension economist at Iowa State college. The report stated that net farm income last year was ?2,227 as compared to a loss of $805 in 1932. Net cash income increased from ?260 in 1932 to $380 last year. Net cash income is computed by subtracting cash expenses from cash receipts while the net farm income also takes into consideration inventory increases. "Much of the increase in net farm income resulted from increases in inventory value of grain .and livestock on hand Jan. 1," said Mr. Allbaugh. "This value, based on conservative farm sale prices, could be realized in a sale." Increased value of corn sealed in cribs is one reason for the higher "paper profit," Mr. Allbavgh explained. Some farmers held pigs past Jan. 1 which ordinarily would have been sold in 1933 and counted as cash income. These increased the inventory figure on Jan. 1, 1934. Difference between individual farming efficiency is "shown by a difference of 52,828 in net farm income between the 14 high and U low profit farms. The high profit farms produced more grain and hay per acre and had a larger percentage of land in legumes. The farmers the high profit group obtained ?179 for each $100 worth of feed as compared to $128 for the low group. More pigs a litter, more pounds of pork a Utter and more crop acres for each man and per horsepower also indicated greater efficiency in the high' profit group, Mr. Allbaugh said.

Whose Fault? Tfie Surly or Sulky Boy Children seldom sulk because they are "bad;" Something is wrong with them physically. Crossness is a symptom of biliousness, the same as a coated tongue.
