NEWS AND VIEWS OF INTEREST TO FARMERS BEET GROWERS GET GUARANTEE Contracts to Assure $12.50 Ton for Beets Washington, (/P)--Contracts for government participation in production of a sugar beet crop went out from the v.-ar food administration to the factory operators a few days ago with plans to assure the growers about §12.50 a ton. Terms of the contract had been worked out several wets ago, but the contracts could not be validated until the status of the commodity credit corporation was settled by congress a week ago. The contract between the commodity credit corporation and the processors differs slightly from those of the past, C. R. Oviatt, director of the sugnr section of the war foods administration, but the grower will receive about S1.5C more a ton for his crop than las year. Farm Price Up $19 Acre in'43 Six per cent less sugar will be allocated for civilian use this year the war food administration said blaming increases in war needs. Adjustments in civilian ration' ing may involve either a reduction in c a n n i n g allo\vances or ihi lengthening of one or more suga: ration coupon periods, or a com bination of both. The lower civilian allocation was said to reflect diversion o larger quantities of sugar can molasses into industrial alcohol to increased needs of our armei HORSES WANTED for KILLING PURPOSES That Are Old, Blind, Lame, or With Other Blemishes.

The amount of sugar allocated r all purposes totals 6,523,098 hort tons were allotted civilians, per cent under 1913. · President Roosevelt reported ast July, at the time he an- ounced an end to coffee ration- ig, that "we also expect that vithm a short time \ve shall get reatly increased allowances of ugav." However, WPA sugar of- iclals subsequently reported the ndustrial alcohol situation would lot permit ending sugar rationing. The 1944 allocation was based government estimates domestic n-oduction will total 1,775,000 ons and imporis 4,561,000. Avail- ible also is a carryover of about ,800,000 tons from last year. The WFA explained, however, the al- ocation provides for a carryover ·I 1,007,000 tons at the beginning of 1945.

During MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE To*i4r, Mirth 7, 1W LEGAL NOTICES the last 2 years, farm values have risen $31 an acre, a rise which is comparable to that in the boom years following V.'orld war I. And brokers who participated in ths survey upon which the 1943- report is based predict price rises in 1914 of from $15 to $25 an acre. The major argument given for a continued rise is that present prices of farm products will support liighei- land values. This, say the economists, is the same argument that was used to justify land values during the last land boom. A. minority of real estate brokers report that land values are already too high in their communities. A few say that the tempo has already reached boom proportions in their areas, and still others report no danger as yet but values rapidly approaching the danger point. All grades of land increased at about the same rate, except for the excellent land which led the others with an increase of $30 an acre in the year ending Nov. 1, 1943, as compared'to only $14 iii the previous year. Good land increased $18 compared to $11. And the lowest grades rose §11 compared to $9 in the previous year. The econom- Iowa State Brand Creameries. Inc. ture area as in some of the other areas the largest percentage increase, 24 per cent, occurred in this southern region. Even the lowest percentage gains, which took place in the northeast dairy and western livestock area, amount to IB per cent. The southern pasture area leads in the overall increase for the 2 years with u rise of 43 per cent. Part of this increase can be attributed to the good crop years recently which followed the unfavorable yields in the 'UO's. The lowest increase in the 2- year period occurred in the north- cast area, but even here the percentage rise was 2G. Fluctuations in prices ami values are usually smaller in areas such as northeast Iowa which specialize in dairying, according to the economists. An exceptionally wide range in values existed ill all areas between the top and bottom grades of land. In the eastern livestock area, where variation is common, top- grade farms averages $199 an acre and the low grade only $78. In southern Iowa the range was from $123 to $44. In the other areas the spread amounted to $80 an acre or more. 'Bentley and Murray point out that these figures are only averages, and that individual sales would show much wider range between top and bottom grades of land. The existence of a boom in the land market is indicated by the rise-in the number of sales. More sales occurred in 1943 than in 1942 the survey shows, and though there was still more activity last fall than a year ago that time, the percentage of sales slumped off. Keasons given for this decline include disappearance of corporate land from the markets and a lack of good farms listed for sale.

Horticulturists Give 12 Rules for Garden Program During 1944 Twelve rules for good gardening are outlined by extension horticulturists at Iowa State college. They are: 1. Plan your garden early, and use the plan at planting time. 2. Select good seed of dependable varieties and treat the seed. 3. Rotate the different vegetables within the garden area each year--if possible plant the garden in a new location each year. 4. Garden soil should be well drained. 5. Pulverize the seedbed well by thorough raking. G. Plant the garden where vegetables will receive at least G hours of sunshine during the day--not close to trees and shrubs. 7. Thin seedlings to proper spacing while they are small. 8. Destroy weeds by frequent shallow cultivations. 9. Make several small plantings of quick-maturing vegetables rather than large single plantings. 10. Plant a summer garden. 11. Give heavy applications of water, if available, once or twice a week during the hot dry periods. 12. Control garden pests. Steamed bone meal for poultry may be replaced by rock phosphate carrying less than 1 per cent of fluorine or magnesium. We Carry a Complete Line of DR.
