10 BIG INCREASE IN IOWA TURKEYS Production in Iowa Last Year Placed at $3,714,000 Total DBS MOINES, (m--Showing a 12 fold expansion in the last 1C years, turkey production in Iowa last year was valued at $3,714,000 Leslie M. Carl, federal agriculture statistician, repotted. Iowa farmers raised about 1,386,000 turkeys last year, abou 10 per cent more than in 1937 An increase of between 25 and 35 per cent over last year is expected this year, Carl said. Iowa was one of the seven states \yhich produced more than a million turkeys last year. Those with a higher production than this state's were Texas, California, Minnesota and Oklahoma. Until about six years ago, turkey production in the state was largely a farm-flock industry, Car] explained. "Since then the small flock operations have not shown any particular increase but there has been a gi-eatly increased number of large turkey flocks," Carl commented, "Reasons' for the very rapid increase in turkey production in Towa during these recent years mainly the application of improved methods for lessening the majority of points, and improved methods of handling and feeding. "These improvements have lessened the cost of production and put turkeys more closely in competition with chickens and other meats."

"Need More Than a Mouth Wash" say Authorities,.. Recommend Polident Plates and bridges soak up odors and impurities like a sponge! A thin dark scum collects on them. This scum holds germs and decay bacteria- It is so tough that ordinary brushing seldom removes it. And it gets into every tiny crevice where brushing can't even reach. Almost always it results in "denture breath" --probably the most offensive of all breath odors. Yet there's a perfect way to clean and, puri/y false teeth without brushing-, acid or danger. It is Foli- aent, a powder that dissolves away all scum, stains, tarnish and odor. Makes breath sreeter- and plates or bridges look better and feel better.
