The peril of a billion yellow men, eager for possession of white women, was cited by E. G. Dunn, Mason City attorney, speaker at a joint lathering of Legionnaires and aux- liary members at the armory Thursday evening, as one of the lasic reasons for a program of ireparedness. While the origin of the World war was commercial rivalry, history eveals that many of the conflicts if the past were started from biological causes, he said. There were indications, he said, hat people of other races would ise to threaten once more the su- nremacy of the white race just as ~ihengis Khan did centuries ago. "With all the rich empires that arose in Africa and in Asia we never saw the yellow man attack :he black man or the black man at- ;ack the yellow," he declared. 'While the yellow hordes threatened Europe from the east, the black man entered and took possession, of Spain and parts of France. Answer Biological. "The answer to this is biological. They came to Europe to possess themselves of the white women. This situation may well arise again and I know that every specimen of American manhood will shed his last drop of blood to protect American womanhood." The fact that 70 per cent of the construction of a warship goes into labor defeats the economists' claims that the building of warships is too expensive, Mr. Dunn pointed out "I think we should have a navy that will outshoot the navies of every country on the globe," he declared.- The present size of the American army was termed "ridiculous" by the speaker, who maintained there should be enough regulars to place two regiments in Iowa to help protect lives and property. Air service should likewise be built up, he said. "The time- has come, however, when money appropriated for national defense should be used for national-defense," he added. Talks Membership. Other speakers were Mrs. Myrtle Siverling, Northwood, fourth district vice committeewoman, who talked on the need of pushing the membership drive, and Mrs. Dora James, Thornton, Cerro Gordo county auxiliary chairman, who explained the child welfare work of the organization. Mrs. Frank Mahaffey, president of the Mason City auxiliary unit, also spoke briefly. The program included a cornet solo by Howard Schweer, accompanied by Miss Woodward. Charles Knouse, scout executive, asked for volunteers to assist in the preparations for the Boy Scout merit badge exposition. The platform program was follower by dancing and refreshments. The music was furnished by Emil Wasicek'g orchestra. Cuba's new president has been in long enough to sit for his photograph.

COMPLETE MAGNETO SERVICE Central Battery Electric Company BUDGETING FEED FOR COWS TOPIC OF DAIRY GROUP North Iowa Cow Testers Discuss Requirements of New Deal. Hay, pasture crops, budgeting the 3'ear's feed supply and the use of proved sires were the topics of discussions by E. R. Hensen, Floyd Arnold and Earl Shultz of the agri- culitural extension division of Iowa State college here Thursday at the district conference for cow testers held in the civil service rooms of the Federal building. Mr. Arnold also outlined plans for the twenty-fifth anniversary celebration of the founding of cow testing association work in Iowa. This celebration will be held in Waterloo during . the dairy cattle congress next fall. The proposed dairy program of the Agricultural Adjustment association was explained and testers were told that the program is unfavorable to paying a bonus on "boarder" cows, that is, low producing cows. Dairymen were advised to get rid of such cows as soon as possible. Discussed Pasture. The proposed adjustment program includes summer dairy tours and picnics to be conducted by the district associations. Mr. Hensen, who is an instructor in the farm crops department at Ames, discussed adequate pasture and hay crops for the dairy farmer. Interest in growing pasture and hay has been stimulated by the adjustment programs, said Mr. Hensen. From the standpoint of feeding value, alfalfa is the best crop that Iowa can grow with soybeans second and the clovers next. The various grasses are next in nutritive value. From the standpoint of yield Â±e same rating: holds true except that sudan grass ranks third. The Ames man urged the use of fall seeded rye, oats, clover, sudan grass and alfalfa to supplement per- nanent pasture, thus providing continuous pasture crops for us all season. , Fall seeded rye may be used for he earliest pasture followed by sweet clover and permanent pas- ;ures. Oats also may be utilized for Tune pasture. Through July and August sudan grass, second-crop meadow, and the second crop of alfalfa may be used. Starting in September first year sweet clover and permanent grass can be pastured again. Will Reduce Feed. Such supplementing of permanent pastures will cut down the feed bill and tide the cows over the pe- Â·iods when grass usually fails, according to Hensen. Earl Shultz, extension dairyman, discussed the value of using sires capable of transmitting high produc- ng characteristics to their offspring. As the production a cow increases the feed cost a pound of butterfat decreases and the income above feed cost increase rapidly, said Mr. Smith, A poor cow eats about as much as a good one and re:urns little to pay for the owner's labor and investment. The sire index is the best gauge of a bull's value, Mr. Shultz said. Breeders figure that the production of the daughters is about half way between that of the sire and the dam. If the production of the daughters is higher than that of their dams, the difference between dam's and daughters' production is added to that of the daughters. This gives a figure which would be the production of the bull if he produced butterfat. If the sire decreases production, the difference is subtracted. 100 Founds Added. For example, if the dam produces 400 pounds of fat and the daughters average 500 pounds, the difference of 100 pounds is added to the daugh- lers" production. The result is 600 jounds, the sire index for that bull. Checking backwards the 500 pound production of the daughters is the average of the 500 pound production of the dam and the 600 pound index. County representatives present at Jie conference, which was the last of a series of six held throughout .he state this spring, included Orando Bye of Winnebago, Emerson Hillman of Franklin, John and Marion Jones of Hardin, G.
