Better Schools Better Social Life NEWS AND VIEWS OF INTEREST TO FARMERS TREATMENT FOR GRUBS ADVISED Rotenone and Sulphur Supply is Promised ' Every effort is being made to see that farmers in Cerro Gordo county, as elsewhere in the state, have a sufficient supply of rotenone and sulphur to treat all cattle for grubs this winter, according to County Extension Director Marion E. Olscn. He points out that white there is a scarcity of these drugs the government deems the need for control of the cattle grub so important that 400,000 pounds of rotenone have been allocated for this purpose. * W * The 4-H clubs at their reorganization meeting recommended that the county extension organization conduct a demonstration fur 4-H club members who would theiv treat their own herds as well as to sponsor demonstrations in the community. # * V Iowa State college extension entomologists explain that treating cattle for grubs is of mutual advantage to the farmer, the packer and the government. Treat- el! cattle make more money, make quicker gains with less feed and less labor, provide less wasteful carcasses and furnish better hides. Mr. Olson said that southern TOP PRICES PAID FOR Farmer Is Governor Walter S.

Native cattle should be given their first treatment between Feb. 1 and 15.

That usually means rendering, too, for although some families have their rendering done dt locker plants many still do it at home. The important thing to remember when rendering lard is that Ihe fat must be fresh, according lo Miss Lucile Buchanan, county liome economist. Immediately after butchering the fat should get thoroughly chilled, cleaned and the skin removed. Lean meat should be cut off and all equipment and utensils cleaned. The chilled fat should be cut into uniform cubes !'/ to 2 indies in. size or put through the course Plato of a sausage grinder. Then it is placed in a cold iron kettle large enough so the fat won't boil over. It should be cooked slowly until enough has .been melted s" it can be stirred freely. From then en, a moderately hot fire can be used. Stirring the fat continu- FAUM 3U11EAU OFFICERS Prcsiden! Ernesl w. Buss. Clear Lake Vice President... R. M, Hall, clear Lake Secretary S A.

A little water poured into the kettle before the fat is added will hasten the early part of rendering. When the cracklings turn light amber in color and the foaming and bubbling practically cease, the fat is ready to be removed from the fire. A good way to test is to remove a few cracklings from the jcettie. It' they fry themselves di-y in a short time, the rendering is complete. ' For lard storage containers Miss Buchanan recommends small containers such as coffee cans and syrup pails which can bo tightly covered. Rancidity may develop it u large surface is exposed to air. If large containers with wide openings are used it is wise to remove the lard in layers so that the portion exposed to light and air will be removed each time The finished lard should be stored in a dark, dry, well-ventilated place.

FARM BUREAU EXCHANGE ntion of living on a plot of land here they can grow part of their vn food needs. Production for the arket often becomes a sideline. Agricultural agents in counties here land purchases are heavier lan usual are worried about the umber of Chicagoans, Dctroiters. levelanders and dwellers at her industrial centers who are trying farms. Many of these are security seekers," persons who ay they "want to have somethin; iff after (he post-war depression * y -Y. The agents say these purchases ean that some of the most ex- erienced farmers are retiring rom farming. They fear that the reduction on iiiese farms may be harply reduced. Even in cases 'here (he new owners would like keep up' production, there is ic problem of finding managers o run the farms, not to mention 10 shortage of farm labor. The farm-buying movement bj ity people is most pronouncec the north central states. Re ts to the department of a"ri ulture show that in Illinois, cluing the period from July 1 to No ·ember 1 last, only ul per cent £ the buyers were farmers In he north centra! region the proportion ot farmers buyin ntention. to operate was 59 per far. however, the increase ent. So land per acre rose from an index- figure of i)l last March to 95 on November 1. This compared with 84 in 1!MO and a low of 73 in, 1933. s not on a scale to imperil serf- \lthough Ihe value last Novem- ously the national goals of [oocl production. Agriculture authorizes here point out that in the country as a whole there was a decrease in farm sales activity in he July 1 to November 1 period. Volume of land transfers were mining about 10 to 15 per cent below the 1041 levels. Furthermore, on a nationwide jasis, farmers have been buying more land than they have been selling. In the northern plains region farmers have been buying about 10 times as much land as .hey have been selling, and even 'in the north central region the i-alio of buying to selling by farmers has been more than 2 to 1. A good deal o£ this has been buying from Farm Security administra- :ion holding companies. On the bright side of the food production picture also is the new co-operation between selective service boards and county war boards which fix crop quotas. An "essential farmer" now is as much entitled to deferment from military service as an "essential war bc-r was 27 per cent higher than it the low point of li)33, it \vas ! per cent below the 1012-19H ndex base and 45 per cent under the 1920 peiik. worker." obtained A war worker who has draft deferment can be transferred to farm work and not increase his liability to draft into the army.
