A little heat can go a long way on mild winter days if a fan is used to direct warm air into chilly comers of the room. A fan hung in a doorway can move air from an overheated kitchen into a room without heat, if only one stove is being used. Th« humidity can be regulated, too, on wash days'if a fan is used to stir the air. Cooking odors can be erased quickly by facing the fan into an open window to draw air out. Millins Hybrid Corn C«. COKW1TH, IOWA Land Prices Are Rising Too Fast Iowa land prices are advancing more rapidly than economists feel is sound.- Many farmers however, are reducing t h e i r mortgages and increasing their holdings of cash, government securities, and life insurance. W. G. Murray, Iowa State college farm economist, believes that action of the farmers shows a fairly general realization t h a t land boom prices do not last* forever. Part of the upward trend in farm land prices, he says, traces to i- creased buying of farm land by non-farm investors. JLast .spring, in the extreme shortage of potatoes in the nation, there was widespread and essentially fraudulent labeling of nearly all sacks of potatoes from some areas: as "seed, in order to avoid price controls on table potatoes, says" C. I* Fitch, secretary of the Iowa State Vegetable Growers' association, the official seed potato certifying agency,for Iowa.' .':' · This "-year "OPA and FDA/in an attempt to protect the public and at the same time provide an adequate quantity of seed potatoes, has set up standards for a second grade of seed, with more disease in it than that allowed in certified seed/the same' second grade to be called war approved. These standards we did not're- ceive until Nov. 16.. They require field inspections of growing crop. As frost-kins the last potatoes in .October, in Iowa and as such inspections were impossible after Nov.. 16, the only fields left eligible "for war .approved seed tags would have been fields FEED C A R G I L L «ED We Now Carry a Full Line of Feed For HOGS- CATTLE -^ POULTRY There Is No Feed Shortage at' the FOLSOM AUTO CO. GENERAL AUTO REPAIRING Across Street From Hanford Hotel" entered for certification, inspected, and rejected for certification. , The 4 fields entered for certifi-. cation all passed all inspections. We .have some 50 carloads of certified, seed "grown in Iowa, and of excellent quality.' says" Mr. Fitch, but can have no war approved seed .until next fall. Nothing but Idaho Burbanks and Colorado McCIures or bright Red Triumphs--all luxury potatoes, seem likely to bring ceilings. There is a great surplus of good common potatoes, and the consumer has his inning this winter and next spring. : In these circumstances,xthose who have been so unwise as to hold potatoes in storage in the face of the surplus are pushing to get their potatoes recognized as seed, in order to get better prices. The only way out known to us for such people is, if their potatoes have merit for planting, to sort them well, put them into branded bags, and tag them as selected seed grown by'them. It is illegal to use blue tags in Iowa on any but certified seed, but they may use tags of any other color, so long as the word "certified" or claims of health are not on them.. Such selected* seed, when:sold direct from producer to consumer, may bring $1" per ^cwt over the producer's local ceiling, be^ sides freight or trucking. If sold through one or more dealers" and thence to the consumer, the table stock ceiling is the highest" price permitted on selected seed; Table stock ceiling prices are notr however, to be sneezed at, says Mr. Fitch, this season. ' . On certified seed the permitted premium is $1, on war approved is it'50c over table stock ceilings. It now seems sure that floors, not ceilings, will rule, and that most energetic action will be required by the national "government to protect floor prices Give them cover need * Talk (o the "soldier with.

Danger of fhfected Meat Noted "The "state health department today cautioned Iowa farmers and others against .the possibil- ty of trichiniasis infection, a disease which develops "through eating pork infested with the richina worm. -'··-· No cases have been reported so far this year, but the department said this is the time when ases usually start to appear. Describing .trichiniasis as "a - Jngeririg infection which in its advanced stages may keep a person from work. -for several weeks," the department urged aking full precaution?ry measures against it, emphasizing particularly thorough cooking of »rk before eating it. The department told that 'summer sausage is especially "hazardous" -because the trichina worm is not killed by the process of smoking. To insure safety not only in -sausage but also in all -racked pork, the meat should e kept at a low temperature in jtorage for at-least 21 'days, the department said. · Tasting _ the sausage be/ore Jtoririg, if only to see 'if it is Jroperly .spiced, also may lead o infection, it was_brought out. Rats carry .the disease, to hogs, according to the department, and elimination of rats was suggested is another method of prevention. In addition garbage .scraps may contain the. worm and if fed to logs, ultimately, lead to human infection. . . ' In its early stages, the disease s characterized by gastro-intes- inal disturbances, loss or appe- ite, pains in the stomach, vomit- ng, and diarrhea. In the latter stages, muscular pain, fever, and swelling of the face and eyelids are noted. 500 Pair of MEN'S WORK PANTS Just Arrived PRICED FROM $925 2 to $y|5o 4 All Sizes _ Heavy Cotton Ribbed Union Suits I- 45 ,.!-" Munsing Wear 2.95 All Sixes
