Better Roads FARMING GROUPS ADVISE '34 LEVEL IN CORN ACREAGE Five Planning Committees In Iowa Recommend Cut in Small Grain. AMES--Maintaining corn acre age in Iowa at the same level as in 1934, or about 13 per cent less than the 1929 · acreage, is recommended in the preliminary reports of five county agricultural planning committees as one of the steps in ae_ veloping cropping systems which would prevent erosia and maintain soil fertility. The summary also recommends reduction of 10 per cent in small rain acreage from that of 1929, an increase in total pasture acreage to 15 per cent above the 1929 level, and an increase in hay acreage to 29 per cent above the 1929 figure. Each of the reports from the five counties is representative of a major farming area in the state. The counties on whose reports the suggested changes are recommendec are Union, southern pasture and meat production area; Crawford western meat production area; Ben. ton east central meat production area; Fayette, northeast dairy area and Webster, north central cash grain area. Are Summarized. The reports were summarized by the state agricultural planning committee at Iowa State college. County agricultural planning committees were organized last fall to make recommendations to the United States department of agriculture which is developing a longtime national policy. L. G. Allbaugh, extension agricultural economist, explains that the figures are tentative and further study by the county committees and the college may reveal the need of revision either upward or downward particularly in the proportion of rotation grassland which is in hay and pasture. The average of the five committees' estimates indicates that without any kind of an agricultural pro- g-ram corn acreage in their counties would increase to about the peak level of 1932-33. They -also estimated that small grain acreage would be 19 per cent above the "1932-33 average, that pasture would ' increase 6 per cent, and that hay would increase 5 per cent They believe that hay tonnage would increase more than hay acreage since there would be more alfalfa grown. Estimates Difficult. Because of the flexibility between various crop and livestock enterprises, it was difficult to estimate the probable results of any changes in the livestock patterns brought by a changed cropping system, Mr. Allbaugh explains. The five counties, however, roughly indicate a 10 per cent increase in all cattle on Iowa farms. There would .be a slightly greater increase in beef cattle (especially - - beef breeding herds) than in dairy cattle. Sheep would show the largest increase with about one-third more sheep under the maintenance pro gram. Hogs would be expected to decrease about 17 per cent from the '. 1930 figures, and from the. hog base - of 1932-33. 'Horses would increase - slightly because of more pasture ' but less crops to tend. Chicken would remain about the same. We are now ready to BIT Wool. Call or see us befon selling. S.

Union and Mount Vernon Township Women Leam to Serve Sea Food Dinner The women of Union and Mount Vernon townships met at the home of Mrs. J. D. Richardson for an all day meeting on Wednesday, April 15. The lesson was on the study of 'Sea Foods." The women prepared dinner for 15 adults and four children. The menu folloxvs: Appetizers, salmon and mackerel bechamel, mashed po- :atoes, fruit and cabbage salad, aread and butter, marshmallow fruit pudding, salted wafers and coffee. In the afternoon Miss Marjorie Chollett, home demonstration agent, told of the different kinds of sea foods. Sea foods are very important in the diet for the iodine and also for variety. A family of 5 should use between 50 and 150 pounds a year. Some of the sea foods mentioned were shrimp, oysters, clam, salmon, tuna, crab, sardines, lobsters, mackerel, sturgeon, herring, codfish, haddock, halibut and lutefish. They may be had in three differ ent days, cured, fresh and canned. Strictly speaking there is no such fish as a sardine, it was pointed out. There are many small fish of the "herring type," that are all grouped together under that name. The name is taken from the "Island of Sardine," where small fish are numerous in quantity.

Producing a Million Turkeys About a million turkeys were produced in Iowa last year, close to half that number being grown in southeastern Iowa, estimates W. M. Vernon, extension poultryman at Iowa State college. Some farmers in northeastern and northwestern. Iowa also are specializing in turkey production. In lower picture arc shown the '5 months old poults on the William Miller farm near WeJlman. The movable range feeders are on skifls, two being built together as one unit. Detailed plans for turkey equipment may be obtained from the extension service. Once a week the turkeys, fence, automatic waterers and other equipment are moved to adjoining clean ground. In upper picture are seen the open type shelters used on the Lacy Gee farm near Independence, after the poults are put on range. Additional roosts may be seen on top of the house. The homemade waterer consists of a glass barrel with a vacuum fx-d pipe leading into a 1-f.oot trough. 0 _^JS* f SSfflB^feVts^""- ur Yesterdays Gleanings From an Ancient File of The Cerro Gordo Republican Saved by the Farm Editor.

The Celebration. -- Taking into consideration the unsettled state ot the weather on Tuesday morning the n°lebration at Mason City ex- cec our expectations. The people i-om the surrounding country and towns began to arrive quite early in the morning and the number was continually increasing unti there were nearly 5,000 people on the streets. During the forenoon the weather, although threatening, was very agreeable, neither too hot nor too cold, and quite favorable to the main exercises of the day. The 'Fantastics" promenaded the streets dressed in divers costumes hideous to behold, led by a representative of 76 sitting upon an elevated seat, erected for the occasion upon a two hore wagon. After promenading the streets for some time, the old cen- ;urian, perched upon his high perch, and looking fully one hundred years old, delivered an able address suitable to the occasion. This address we would like to produce if our space would permit, as it was really meritorious, and was delivered in a most cerditable manner. Procession Forms. Soon after the delivery of this address the procession and a majority of was formed the people marched to the grove near Parker's mill, where the exercises previously advertised were duly carried out. After prayer by the chaplain, the Rev. c. T. Tucker, and the reading of the Declaration of Independence by Mr. John Cliggett, the orator of the day, Hon. S. P. Leland, delivered, in an impressive manner, an able address well worthy the great occasion that called it forth. The county historian read a very interesting account of the history of the county from the earliest settlement up to the present time. The sketch was well written and well received. These exercises were interspersed with both instrumental and vocal music. And here let us remark that too much cannot be said in praise of the Northwood band. As musicians hy are certainly not excelled if equaled in the northern part of the state, and they are all gentlemen, with nothing of the rough and rowdy about them. We believe we echo he sentiments of the people who were entertained by their music when we say they gave entire satis- ? action. The rain in the afternoon was rather discouraging but as it continued but a short time it was hoped hat the evening would be favorable 'or a fine exhibition of the fireworks, cloudy and dark, without rain. But the hopes in this direction were doomed to disappointment for y had the exhibition begun when the rain commenced falling, slowly at first, but gradually Increasing until the committee in charge of the fireworks was obliged .o desist from their work. This was extremely unfortunate as there had been a very fine and extensive assortment of fireworks bought and pretty well advertised, which had caused a good many people to remain in town for the purpose of seeing the exhibition. Rain Stopped It. Only about one-half of the fireworks were burned before the rain stopped further operations. As it rained nearly all the time after the work commenced, the committee dared not exhibit the best pieces, as it would take some time to put them in position and it was feared they would become so saturated with wa. ter that they would not burn properly. Most of the best pieces were therefore left, together with a good assortment of the smaller pieces. These will be kept and used upon some public occasion as. may be hereafter determined. The whole celebration was a success in every particular except in regard to the fireworks, and the partial failure in that direction was due to the "action of the elements" and not to any fault of the committee The success of our celebration was due in the first instance to indefatigable labor of a few members of the various committees, and secondly to the unexceptionable manner in which the officers of the day performed their duties. PRICE OF STEERS AT CHICAGO HAS BEEN ABOVE $9 Prices for Cattle Next Two Months Depends on Market Supply. AMES-- Iowa State college extension economists Wednesday suggested that cattle prices for the next two months will depend to a large extent on whether cattle feeders are able to keep the market supply well distributed. The average price of beef steers at Chicago has fluctuated at slightly above the $9 level tor the last 'one and one-half months. Choice- grade stuff declined in this period and common cattle rose. While supplies of beef steers have been running somewhat heavier than for the corresponding period of last year, they have not been excessive, the economists said.

Delaware Phone 819 GIVE your About 28 per cent more cattle are on feed in the corn belt now han a year ago, according to a report of the federal bureau of agricultural economics. The Dumber on eed shows considerable expansion ver last year when feeding was greatly cut down, but is small com- lared with other years, the econ- imists explained. Consumer demand is much tronger than it was a year ago, and the stocker and feeder market s tending to support the lowei' grades of slaughter cattle, the econ- mists said. Stocker and feeder irices have risen since March 1. "If a slight decline in prices irings a panic in selling, there may ie a sharp drop," the economist ventured. "But if marketing is or- erly, consumer demand is such that he supply should be absorbed with ittle change." Visitors From Wisconsin.
