MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, MARCH 20 1936 FIVE KANAWHA FARM STATION TO ADD TO HYBRID CORN ACREAGE PROPOSE CROPS ROTATION AREAS Reducing Corn Acreage to 107,000 Acres Is Listed m Recommendations. GARNER--The Hancock county planning board has recommended a rotation of crops which would involve 42 per cent in corn, 29 per cent in small grains and 28 per cent in grass and hay. W. J. Rasmusson, Britt, chairman of the county agricultural program, explained that its purpose is to suggest a long-time policy to conserve soil fertility and prevent soil erosion. The committee report showed Hancock county has 267,000 acres in cultivated crops and 46,000 acres in plowablc pasture. Permanent or "implowable pasture accounts for 17,000 acres. There are 36,000 acres in ittation pasture, 7,350 acres in alfalfa and 99,000 acres in small grain. Corn acreage totals 122,000 and cultivated crops other than corn totals 9,000 acres. General adoption of the proposed rotation, explained Mr. Rasmusson, will mean increasing alfalfa acreage to 25,000, corn acreage would be reduced to 107,000 acres and small grain would be reduced to 83,000 acres. Rotation pasture, if the proposed plan were generally adopted by farmers in Hancock county, would comprise about 23,000 acres. Sweet clover would be grown on 41,000 acres and tame hay would account for 13.000 acres. Under the program, fertility of land would be maintained and losses from soil erosion would be lessened and eventually mpan larger yields at a lower cost a bushel .and more hay and pasture would balance our grain feeds, Mr. Rasmusson said. "Furthermore, such a program would hold down the production of major grain crops and help maintain farm prices at a reasonable level, the use ot pasture and hay would permit cheaper livestock production with a larger margin of profit." The committee's next step will be to determine what will happen to total feed production in terms of tons and bushels and effect of this change on livestock production. Mrs. Frank Laughlin, 60, Buried at Osage OSAGE -- Commitment services for Mrs. Frank Laughlin, 60, were held Thursday afternoon at the family .lot in the local cemetery by the Rev.'

OTTUMWA, (UP)--Mayor Edwin Manning of Ottumwa, candidate for the republican nomination for United States senator, Thursday pledged himself to abide by the national G. O. P. platform in event of his election. Manning, in addressing the Wapello County Mann-ng club, charged President Roosevelt with substituting his own personal platform for that of the deinocietic party, "despite the fact that the people had never voted on bis personal platform." Manning urged republicans to profit by the "mistakes" of the democratic party. This was demonstrated, he said, by delegates at the recent state republican convention, when they pledged that the party would retire from "public view" any republican who through action or inaction, obstructed the party in bringing about a "non-partisan, non-political" solution o f ' the agricultural problem. Easiest Way to Find 'Wanted' Persons Is Helping Hitch-Hikers CBNTERVILLE, C3)--The easiest way to find "wanted" persons, says Sheriff Roscoe Wales, is to pick up hitch-hikers. Recently two runaway Des Moines girls thumbed him down and were taken to the county jail to await return to their homes in that city. Wednesday the sheriff picked up two more hitch-hikers. One of them was wanted to serve a 30 day jail sentence here. Roof Fire Extinguished. CORWITH--A roof fire caused a small amount of damage at the C. H. Martin residence Tuesday evening.

PLAN MEETING AT SIOUX CITY Seek to Halt Importation of Livestock and Farm Produce Into U. S. SIOUX CITY, LTI -- The Sioux City chamber of commerce Thursday called a middle west conference to be held here April 14, to obtain federal action to halt the importation of livestock and farm produce into the United States to the alleged detriment of home markets. The conference will take in representatives from owa, Illinois, Minnesota, Kansas, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Missouri.

Invitations are also going to United States senators and congressmen from these states, officers of farm organizations and labor groups, presidents of railroads serving the farm belt and publishers of newspapers and farm publications.
