Grant More Lttaber for Iowa Farms De* Maines--Iowa received the largest supplemental allotment o lumber for farm use In 1943 o any state in the union, members of the Iowa Retail Lumber Deal ers association were told here President Donald M. Peaslee o GROWN IN AND FOR THE FOR BETTER ADAPTABILITY Every Mullins corn grower in this area receives the special advantage of corn varieties that are especially suited to his particular locality .and will naturally produce maximum yield_ and performance results for him. Mullins' concentration of full effort in specialized production of hybrids adapted to an exclusive territory simplifies the accurate selection of corn type« best suited to the individual need. Mullins Hybrid Cora Co. COBWITH, IOWA taurens to., in his annual report, said that supplemental allotments to the state totaled 48 000,000 board feet. He said -f his top" allotment was due' to Iowa's position as a food producing state.' With "the co-operation of the Iowa department of agriculture he said, Iowa dealers were the first to absorb their allotments in 1843 and as a result, an additional supplemental allocation of 23,500,000 board feet had been made for the first quarter of 1914. Peaslee said the lumbermen's association could claim some credit for these allotmenls because they had proved to' the war food administration that they were needed and were subsequently forthcoming from the war production board (WPB). The state president predicted 'some slight relaxation" ot restrictions in the Jast 6 months o£ 1944, if the war goes favorably, Jut told members that temporary controls are likely for sometime to come, probably into the ---'" period of peace. · Further stiff taxes are essen- Jal to help check inflation, says Edward Allen, Iowa State col- ege economist.

To this hst might be added Cedar Vikota and Vicland, of which there is little s x eed available "us year. All mature early and are resistant to crown or leaf rust, stem rust and bofh smuts of oats. The new varieties are foo- notchers in yields. In tests conducted by Iowa State college at Ames and Kanawha during 1938 to 1943, inclusive, the new varieties showed an average margin of 12.5 bushels per acre more than the average for 10. ot the common varieties, including such fayorites of a few years ago as Iowa 105, .Ibgold and Vanguard. Tama made an especially good showing, averaging 706 bushels an acre, being exceeded only slightly .by Cedar. Once the seed for the new vaneties is obtained; it is not necessary to obtain new seed each year if it is not mixed- with other varieties qr other grain The advantage which the livestock farmer has had over other types of farmers is likely to-narrow some during 1944. economists at Iowa State college believe. They, suggest that the gram farmer is likely to have further, increases. Use bony meat to advantage for savory soup, stew : or scrap- to be as good as they- can be pie.
