Van Weil Heads Franklin Delegation to District Meeting J. S. (Pat) Van Wert, district committeeman, took charge of the conference of the north central group of Farm Bureaus at Garner March 9. In opening the meeting he said that it was ol a n e x p e r i m e n t a l type--the morning devoted to discussion of problems each county was encountering--the afternoon to the presentation of delinite subjects by special speakers. Of the problems that came up in the morning the liveliest comment centered around the probable volume of soybeans and the sale of high protein feeds. Representatives of several counties stated that if the grower of soybeans could be assured of enough soybean oil meal to meet the needs of his livestock, there would be strong incentive to grow enough beans to meet whatever standard was set up. Those present virtually agreed that price was secondary to this consideration in most cases. Price alone would obtain the volume desired but would have to reach 2\ ! - times that of corn, according to 'several comments. Farm labor supply was the 2nd topic in importance, in point of discussion evoked. Is'ot a single complaint as to the necessity for drafting men (sons and brothers of those present in many cases) was heard. The group was simply interested in how serious a problem was to be met. Suggestions centered around the widest possible use of prisoner labor in processing plants to reduce the drain on local help. Then there were a number of statements as to untrained help At Feminine and Fair To Moke You Look * Your Loveliest Suit-dresses,-g-ny with col- ori'ul embroidery!

As one man remarked at the ·lose of the session, skilled labor ·annot be produced over night r in one year and skill is badly leeded on our highly developed farms. In th; afternoon Mrs. Raymond Sayre, Ackworth, state rhairman of Farm Bureau wom- ;n and a member of the commission appointed by Gov. Hickenlooper, opened up the problem of the rural school system. "I have been a school board member for the past 10 years and have studied rural school problems for some time but find that there is a great deal to be learned," Mrs. Sayre said. "I think the main problem is t h a t our rural schools were designed to tit the time of my great jrandfalher when farming and country living were much different than now." Doctor Starreck of Ames, who has spent many years training teachers and is an authority on school systems, discussed the present situation pointing out that war had erected or intensified problems of all sorts. Some sort of state aid system will have to be devised, he believed, to relieve land from carrying such an unequal burden of school costs and he was emphatic that standards must be raised if county and town children are to have anything like equal educational opportunities. Besides Mr. Van Wert, o f f i - cers of the Franklin county Farm Bureau attending were Howard Barger, secretary; C. F. Lubkeman, treasurer; and Miss Irene Kramer, women's chairman. G. E. Van Wert, chairman of the county legislative committee; John Beer, organization director, Mrs. Elisabeth R. Stark, county extension home economist; and County Extension Director Ross L. Hunfsinger made up another section of the delegation. The county school committee was represented by Clay Tim- merman, Mrs. Charles Heuberger, Mrs. Floyd Obreeht, Theodore Krukow and Mrs Adolph Bockelman. Mrs. C. J. Sheppard of lioss township represented the county program committee. II. G. Doeringsfeld, county superintendent of schools, who is acting as adviser to the school committee, brought the total attendance from Franklin county to 15. J. S. VAN WERT --Lock photo Oats Not Essential for Good Dairy Production Oats are not essential for good dairy production. A ration containing a mixture of 700 pounds'of corn to 100 pounds of oilmeal or ground soybeans, with good legume hay will be satisfactory, says C. Y. Cannon, head of dairy husbandry at Iowa State college. DRAIN LAND THOROUGHLY One o f - t h e ways to increase production of crops in Iowa witli no more work and using no more land is to sec that all land farmed is thoroughly drained, agricultural engineers at lowu State college suggest.
