And School Files . . . 45 HAVE FILES--In Cerro Gordo county 45 schools now have files and reference libraries. These files are used by the teacher in working out units and the children also use the file in looking up reference material. M i s a Iva McDonough is. shown here at the file of Lake No. 5, looking up source material. The filing system is used in working out the unit project type of teaching, a modern innovation started in the rural schools of Cerro Gordo e o u n t y by Miss Hazel Thomas, c o u n t y superintendent. V, Children have come to use the files as readily as trained office workers. They know how to look up reference material and handle their own problems in working out the class unit. This encourages initiative among the students which can be readily noticed in the mod-' ern school room. Farmers and ranchers of the nation face the winter with about 5 per cent smaller hay supplies than last year. Total supplies of protein feed wiH be smaller also than last year but may be larger in relation to livestock numbers. Unseed meal supplies will be much lower. Supplies of tankage, meat scraps soybean meal and cottonseed meal probably will be moderately lower. Iowa farmers probably can get all of the red clover, timothy and bromegrass seed they want in 1945, but tile supplies of sweet clover, alsike and alfalfa will be short, reports H. D. Hughes ol Iowa State college. Can't Ease 1945 Food Production The 1945 Iowa food goals which call for Iowa farmers to ?I?? uce about the same as in 1944 are based pretty much on a - P|?y safe" policy, says Francis Kutish, Iowa State college zarm economist. When everything is taken into consideration, the chances are that there will be less need for food next year. But there are too many uncertainties in the picture for farmers to trim their sails now. That's why for all kinds of food, except eggs farmers are asked to produce the same or a little more than they did this year. Kutish points out that if the war in Europe should end fairly soon, some reduction in the food needs for lend-Iease and military purposes for that area could be expected. But the war will still be on in the Pacific and the folks at home will stUJ want and be able to pay for a lot of food. In setting the goals, another point given strong consideration was the weather. Iowa farmers have had a stretch of pretty fair weather, and that may not be counted on to continue next year. In short, the nation will be much better off to have more food than is needed than not enough. With average crop yields,. the 1945 goals for the nation as a whole call for a 5 to 10 per cent reduction in total food production. : · ^ - ^ -- " ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ · · · · ^ · B Attention FARMERS We Have On Hand Now: · Steel Posts · Steel Fence Gates · Metal Chicken Nests · Water Heaters · · Corrugated Bootine · Feed Bonks · Brooder Houses · Hoe Houses · MASON CITY LUMBER CO. 15th and North Federal PHONE 137 FOR SALE!
