WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 1943 FARM MACHINE NEED STRESSED Gwynne Assails New Cuts in Allotments WASHINGTON--"The farmers will meet the demand for food for ourselves and our allies," predicted Congressman John W. Gwynne of ihe third Iowa district, in a speech in the house of representatives. Disdussing proposed 1943 production quotas. Congressman Gwynne claimed, "Farmers will be asked -to produce more food. They will do so in spite of the shortage of manpower and other difficulties." The congressman said, "It is discouraging, however, that announcement is now made of further cuts in the supply of new farm machinery. For example, for the whole state of Iowa there will be allowed the following quotas of certain essential machinery: "Horse drawn row crop planters, more than one row--400; tractor drawn row crop planters--207; tractor drawn cultivators--2,992; tractors--2,051; farm wagons--1.050; cream separators--1,162; horse drawn mowers--404. "This will mean, for example, an average of six new corn planters for each county. On certain equipment no quotas at all were established. "We also have constant appeals from small companies making farm equipment of their inability to get small quantities of material necessary for making farm machinery. The situation is complicated further by the fact many men skilled in the repair of farm machinery are now in the service. "We in the agricultural communities recognize fully the ne- essity for getting the maximum production of planes, tanks and guns. However, the United States production of steel in 1943 will approach twice the combined output of the axis nations. We wish to urge that food also is necessary to win · the war. We trust those in authority who fix the quotas for machinery will take a broad and realistic view of the situation and allot for making and repairing 'if farm machinery the maximum tonnage of materials consistent with the military program." Decorah Boy Has Leg Amputated at Rochester DECORAH--Carl Hexom, son of Mrs. David Hexom of Eecorah, underwent an operation for the amputation of his leg above the knee at Rochester, Minn., last week.
