Hog Prices Lower in '43 ||Thaniril8 Mollias Hybrid Corn Co. CORWITH, IOWA' 4 . WasUnrt, n , CSV-Reuresenta- tive Thomas E. Martin (R., Iowa) says a compilation shows that live hog prices on Nov. 11. 1943 were nearly 25 per cent lower than on Nov. U, 1618, but that retail prices of certain hog products were from 16 to 80 pep cent higher than the 1918 level. He caUed his colleagues' attention to the tabulation, made by Emmett C. Gardner, Johnson Iowa, extension director and suggested that "it will give ?at information , bom« in mind hi"'" consideration of food Red wing at The comparisons, as set out by Gardner and as -published in the congressional record, were: Market price tor hogs, Nov 11 --$17.30 in 1918, J13.15 in 1943. Retail prices--pork roast 22 cents in 1918 and 35c in 1943- pork tenderloin, 25 and 45c; pork chops, 35 and 41c ;picnic hams, 2a and 3Ic; sugar cured hams, 30 and 35c (all per 'pound). '.

Iowa State college extension agricultural engineer. " A better method, he says, is to usean asbestos pad. A piece of asbestos paper is wadded up and wound with a piece of wire The pad then is soaked in kerosene and is placed so that the fuel will igmte easily. The pad is ignited and can be pulled out before it becomes too hot. It can be used over and over again. Kerosene may be used safely ? saakmg corncobs or other Kindling, allowing them to dry on the outside, and placing a few in proper position in the fuel, -this method does not carry the a sudden line or kerosene on a blaze. trf MILK SAVERS SECURlTYSlflPFEEO '' - F. ,*.

DiaieiK, la. Drenching -each ind'i v i d u a I sheep or lamb is the best way to a a m i n i s ter phenothiazine for elimination of -nodular worms. The dose may. be given with a dose syringe, a funnel or tube or with a long necked bottle. In order .to keep 'the drug in suspension it is essential to shake the mixture thoroughly before starting to drench each animal. Phenothiazine wi!l dissolve very slightly, in water. Adequate amounts of silage and legume hay with small 'quantities of a grain mixture will provide the necessary balance and nutrients to keep heifers past 19^. months of age in thrifty, growing condition. . ' ? The brooder house and equipment should be cleaned thoroughly and disinfected before chicks are allowed to use them. Scrub with scalding lye water using 1 pound of lye to 30 gallons of water. . When setting out. an orchard low places which have poor water and air drainage should be avoided, and tree's should not be planted closer than 75 feet from large shade trees or windbreaks. Bromegrass will provide 50 to 100 per cent more pasture forage than will Kentucky bluegrass on ferule, well-drained soils, it is best suited for permanent pasture" or in long rotations. Livestock specialists at Iowa State college have found that flake salt is more satisfactory than rock-salt for livestock. Under usual conditions a salt that carries 98 per cent or more of sodium chloride is preferred. Under some "conditions, "especially if a mineral mixture is not being fed, the salt which carries such impurities as iron aluminum and sulphur may be advanfa«e- TMis. -^ - Unseed oil meal is not satisfactory as a single protein feed for hogs. It does very well, however, when mixed with other feeds. . Older, heavier cattle will usually get enough protein from a corn-hay ration to meet their requirements i f - t h e hay is good quality alfalfa or red clover. This may not be true if corn and cob meal is full fed and the hay has lost a considerable portion of its leaves, however. Iowa State college agronomists have found that alfalfa will pay greater profits if a commercial fertilizer, is used when the alfalfa Jns seeded. About 250 pounds of . Or20-0 phosphate fertilizer is ' recommended per acre on average soils. On sandy, high lime or poor soils, 0-20-0 produces the best results. ' New oat varieties again showed t h e i r superiority over other strains. In trials conducted at Kanawha last year, Tama yielded II bushels an acre; Marion 68" Iowa 105, 40; and Gopher,_38. Sweet clover is the best green manure crop for Iowa. It should .be seeded wiih small grain and turned under the followin" spring or before it ripens in August of the second year. How to Get Wax Off Tablecloth ~ If holiday candles dripped wax on the tablecloth, Miss N o r a Workman, extension home furnishings specialist at Iowa State college, recommends using a dull knife, a warm iron and cleansing tissues to remove it. First, scrape off as much of the hard wax as possible. Then, Place the stain between cleansing tissues or paper towels and press with a warm iron, changing the paper as it becomes soiled. Finally sponge Avith a grease solvent. If color still remains, sponge with liquid "made up of half as much denatured alcohol as water. Mason City Rendering Co.
