SIXTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE WOULD ADD 36,000 ACRES OF HAYLAND Prevention of Fire Is New Goal 4-H Members Take Part in Drive to Stop Waste. Iowa 4-H boys and girls this year will be active in the campaign to lessen that great economic waste--farm fires. Objectives of this activity are to reduce the annual rural fire loss in Iowa by presenting facts about the losses to the 1-H members, to provide facilities and means for training them in methods of rural fire prevention. The work is being- encouraged by the Fanners Mutual Reinsurance association, the state organization of county farmers' mutual associations, which has donated 5400 to be awarded to club members, local and county groups that excel in farm fire prevention activities this year. The 15 olub boys and 15 club girls who enter the best records and stories of their fire prevention activities will be awarded to the two counties conducting- the best farm fire prevention programs. County mutual insurance associations in several instances are also offering prizes to the county club members. The club members become familiar with the causes of farm fires, make inspections of their buildings for major hazards discovered, assist neighbors in the inspection of their buildings and give talks and demonstrations on "rural fire prevention."

Producers of HIGH GRADE PEAT PRODUCTS Hanlontown, Iowa The final report of the Cerro Gordo county planning committee was sent to the state planning- committee by Earl M. Dean, chairman of the committee. The first preliminary report consisted mainly of an analysis of the soil types in the county and suggested rotations for a soil maintaining and soil conservation program. Two factors were considered in the report, the one was that if no program was conducted it was estimated that without a program there would be 116,000 acres of tame hay. The report based on a conservation or soil maintaining- program, would increase the tame hay to 36,000 acres. The committee's report recommended that 26 per cent of the tillable soil in the county be seeded to a legume to be used for either hay or pasture. The major rotation was a three year rotation with corn, oats and clover and corn, corn, oats and clover. The alfalfa acreage was increased about 4,000 acres from the present acreage. To Maintain Fertility. In the rotations planned fertility of the soil will be maintained as well as the physical condition, which means the organic matter in the soil. To improve the fertility of the soil on the majority of the soils in the county, it will be necessary to use a three year rotation. However on soils that are up in good condition, a four year rotation will maintain and slightly improve the nitrogen and humus. The adaptability of a rotation for a farm would depend upon the amount of livestock kept on the farm, the topography of the farm and if it was necessary to maintain a certain per cent of the land in, permanent pasture as a result (Turn to I'asie IS) FARM BUREAU EXCHANGE FOR SALE SEEDS Hope Spring Wheat, Ralph Bryant, Mason City, K-4.
