FARM BUREAU NEWS SUGGESTS USE OF FERTILIZERS Superphosphate Boosts Cerro Gordo Yields Plan war time land use to produce crops and prevent harming of the soil, advises Marlon E. Olson, county extension director. He stated that according to reports from the experimental station of Iowa State college and experience in Cerro Gordo county, we can exploit level, highly productive soils using these soils to the limit in the production of beans and corn. He painted out there is a relatively small per cent of land in Cerro Gordo county that erodes badly but that in the rougher, roll- ine sections it uuuld perhaps be advisable to plant on the contour for corn and beans. The Webster soils in the west half of the county and Floyd and Clyde in the east part of the county and the Wabash and La- rnoure bottom lands are highly productive and can be exploited to the limit, he said. The Clarion soils of the west part of the county and the Carington in the east and Tama in the south can also stand heavy cropping. Mr. Olson reported that results of experiments with superphos- phate in Cerro Gordo county have shown increased yields of 5 to 10 bushels per acre, depending: upon the rotation. On thinner soils and where crops have not been ro- 'Minerals are Essential' "That the animal body requires certain minerals is revealed through analysis of various species of animals . To date, many animal bodies have beea analyzed by scientists throughout the world. It is quite generally agreed as a result that the following minerals, which are always part of the body composition, are necessary to the p e r f e c t growth of the animal body and the proper functioning of the organs: Calcium, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, chlorine, magnesium, iron, sulphur, iodine, manganese, copper and zinc . . . All of these elements are considered essential" to life."--Food and Life page 543. Big Gain All-purpose Mineral with irradiated yeast provide the essential minerals in the right proportion and provide ample amonuts of Vitamin D, which assures efficient use of calcium and phosphorous.

Results from tests show that the use of phosphates and fertilizers have resulted in earlier maturing of grains and in improved quality. Experiments reported from Iowa State college on 70 different locations including 9 different soil types in Iowa showed that the corn yield can be increased an average oÂ£ 5.9 bushels an acre when manure is applied properly. Land in corn should have the first call on manure produced on the farm Results have shown that it is not practical to apply manure or commercial fertilizer oil land to be .Planted to soy beans. Some of the best results have been oblaned by usins 200 to 300 pounds of fertilizer an acre when seeding to grain which is seeded to alfalfa. In order to get best results from commercial fertilizers they should be applied 'on soils that do -not need lime. In order to determine whether or not soils need lime stone, samples may be tested at the county extension 'office free of charge a n d recommendations made as to liming or use of commercial fertilizers. A warm barn often becomes damp, and a little draft will cause cows to be susceptible to [lu. Good ventilation with a minimum of drafts is a must in keeping down flu and pneumonia cases in dairy cows and heifers. FARM BUREAU EXCHANGE FOR SALE--Purebred Hoist, bull, serviceable age.

The loan funds can be used lo purchase seed. feed, tractor fuel and oil, machinery repairs, fertilizer and other supplies. A first lien on the, crop of livestock fed is required as security. Farmers who are unable to arrange for credit from local banks, production .credit associations, or other local sources are eligible to apply. The interest rate is 4 per cent per year, and special arrangements have been made to have the loan funds in lhe farmer's hands within a week or ten days after the application reaches the regional office. Farmers are urged to take stock of their needs early and if in need of credit to file their applications. The seed loan office will be located in the Federal building Mason City. ' Iowa agricultural experiment station studies and practices by many farmers over the state indicate that there is no apparent advantage in using a disk harrow or stalk cutter to cut up the stalks so as ta partially mix them wilh the surface soil before plowing. SELL US YOUR HIDES and WOOL Also Your . . . Scrap Iron and Metal CARL STEIN Ph. 470 111 6th S. W. Market Will Offer Utility Goods Only Civilians will probably be able to buy much of the furniture and home furnishing items they actually need in 1944. But restrictions on most household goods arc expected to continue for the duration, says Miss Lucile Buchanan, county extension home economist. Manufacturers indicate that as soon as the war closes they win prepare to resume manufacture of their most recent pre-war models. That will take care of immediate needs while research is done on new models using new materials. Furniture manufacturers are restricted this year to 84 per cent of the lumber used for furniture and crating in 1943. exclusive of plywood and veneer. That means no non-essential pieces, such as tea wagons and "whul-nots" arc being made. Unnecessary details and frilis have been eliminated in the trend toward simplicity and conservation. Neither plastic nor melal is expected to be used generally, except as a furniture trim for at least 5 years after the war ends. And new basic developments in upholstered furniture probably will not be apparent for some time after the war. Springless furniture may die a sudden death as soon as restrictions are lifted. Approximately 70 per cent less textiles are available to civilians Jacquared, velour, mohair, frieze and other pile fabrics are among the hardest to procure and it is almost impossible to get glo- sheens and printed sateens. The textiles picture for after the war includes synthetic yarns, new weaves, new textures and finishes which will make fabrics in general flameproof, vermin proof, water repellent and more serviceable and durable. Floor coverings probably will continue only in wool, raj'on and cotton blends until the war ends TOP PRICES PAID FOR HIDES FUR WOLF BROS. INC. 308 5th S. W.

Gingerbread, Molasses Puddings Offer Food Values During Winter Hot gingerbread and molasses pudding, treats for the family on winter days, are suggested by Miss Lucile Buchanan, county exÂ« tension home economist. Molasses, popular for many products in grandmother's day and an excellent aid in stretching sugar supplies, has high mineral and energy content. Two tablespoons of molasses provide one-filth of. the iron needed in a day. Among old-time favorite molasses recipes are molasses sauce for hot pudding, molasses pie or batter pudding, and Indian pudding. Baked beans, seasoned with d a r k molasses, and steamed brown bread m;icle with molasses are old favorites, too. Two important point? to remember in cooking with molasses, according to Miss Buchanan, are that it scorches easily and con- tains acid. Most molasses recipes call for soda but some baking powder usually should be added too. Modern cooks add the soda with the dry ingredients rather than mixing it with the molasses. A recipe for gingerbread waffles, with ingredients for li w a f - fles, calls for 3 eggs; / 4 cup sugar; V cup molasses; 1 cup sour milk; Y.'I cups flour; 1 teaspoon ginger; Â·Â· teaspoon salt; 1 teaspoon soda; 1 teaspoon baking powder; 1-3 cup shortening, melted. Beat the eggs until light. Add sugar, molasses, sour milk and the remaining dry ingredients sifted together. Beat until smooth, then stir in the shortening. A dash of clove and cinnamon may be added for spicier waffles. HORSES WANTED for KILLING PURPOSES That Are Old, Blind, Lame, or With Other Blemishes. HIGH PRICES PAID A. G. JORDAN 323 So.
