18 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Storage for Grain Urged by Farmer - If every American farmer had enough grain storage space to 'carry his farm's production of a year or more, E. T. Leipprandt, Huron county, Mich., believes violent fluctuations in years of heavy crops would cease. "I am going to do my part," he said. "I have storage space for 3,000 bushels, and I am getting ready to build storage for 3,000 more over the driveway in my barn. I have planned eight new bins, each of which may be emptied from the bottom, and a cup elevator driven by a 2- horsepower motor. "My neighbors, James Smith and James Brown, as well as several others I could name, are adding to their capacity to make themselves independent of fluctuating prices. The movement should spread to every section of the country. It would mean many dollars to agriculture.

Spiral twisted links grip the earth for constant traction throughout the entire revolution of the wheels. Mud and dirt are shaken loose by the rolling and twisting of the spiral cross links. Time-robbing stops to clean off mud, and dangerous side-slipping are hazards well worth eliminating. Buy triple action -- you'll get triple traction!

E, Mason City, Iowa 4-H Boys Ask hange in Beef Judging At a meeting of the boys club -ommittee and club leaders at he county agent's office on ·larch 1, the leaders recommended that club work in Cerro Gordo county be developed on a jrattical basis, that the calves in he baby beef clut and the mar- cet pigs be judged on a market asis and that they procure jacker judges to assist in the udging. It was recommended that an effort should be made to provide additional material for the older club boys. In this way additional interest could be created among the older boys in 4-H club work. It was recommended to hold special demonstrations and day meetings in which practices of managing swine, hog house construction and control' of parasites and insects be demonstrated. John Quist, specialist in 4-H club work, Iowa State college, stated that judging could be made more practical by placing livestock on market trades rather than comparing individuals. Other meetings of leaders will be held to discuss problems and make plans for club work so as to meet the needs of the club boys. About 150 boys were enrolled in club work in Cerro Gordo county during 1938. Mr. Quist stated that 40 per cent of the boys of the county had at some time or other participated in some type of 4-H club activity. Supervises I. S. C.

Mason City hides, after conferences and correspondence with Mr. Bath, and after seeking advice from the office of the attorney-general, finally determined, as of Feb. 6, 1939, that a farm tractor should retain its agricultural status when pulling a trailer. The Ohio Farm Bureau raised the question after learning of several instances in which farmers were arrested and convicted in local courts of driving a motor Vehicle without a license when they had used their tractors for pulling trailers on the highways. George Godfrey, Ames, director of agricultural relations of Iowa State college, has helped Cerro Gordo county by extending results of experiments and surveys to farmers.

Olson, county agricultural agent, urges farmers to be careful of where they buy seed and what quality they buy. "There are state regulations regarding seed sold within the state, Mr. Olson said. "However seed should be checked carefully if you are buying from out of the state. "It is dangerous to buy seed from 'fly-by-night' salesmen. It is best to deal with men you are acquainted with and at a place where you will have recourse if it is not satisfactory and where you have ample time to have the seed tested. "Care in selection of seed will save a great deal o£ time and effort in eradicating weeds within the next year or two. Clean seed is one of the best means of eliminating noxious weeds."
