MASON Oi'r CORN AND WHEAT GROWERS TO GET RIG AAA CHECKS $188,219,000 on Corn Largest Amount Ever Granted for That Crop WASHINGTON, (P)--Northern and western com and \vheat farmers will get a lion's - share o£ 5595,500,000 in benefit payments to- be distributed among growers for complying with last year's federal crop control programs. Southern cotton farmers will g«t the smallest .amount since the supreme court invalidated the first agricultural Adjustment act and processing taxes in 1936. * ¥ # These tacts were disclosed in a preliminary report of the agriculture · department on 1943 farm subsidies. * * * Payments to wheat farmers -will total about- $133,477,000, the second .largest amount set aside for wheat growers in any one year since the crop programs were inaugurated in 1933. The top was $137,555,000 in 1939. Payments on tile 1941 crop totaled $107,353,000. Corn payments will amount to $188.319,000, which is the record for t h a t crop. Payments on the 1941 crop totaled $130,186,000. Until the 1942 crop year, cotton payments exceeded those for any other commodity. T h e y will amount to about $78,833,000 compared with 5184,957,000 for the 1941 crop and a peak of $205,595,000 for the 1938 crop. The decline in cotton payments is explained in the improved price position of this crop. One type of payments,--called parity 'payments --are distributed among only those major crops which averaged less than the parity price at the marketplace during the crop marketing year. * * * Three major crops normally entitled to parity payments were said by the department to have averaged parity or higher. They were cotton, most types of tobacco and rice. Parity payments will be paid on only corn, "wheat and a lew minor types of dark tobacco. The department .will pay §179,- 000,000 to farmers who used recommended c r o p practices designed to rebuild soil productivity. Says No Need for Shortages of Materials IOWA CITY--Development of western hemisphere sources oJ vital strategic raw materials coulci produce enough to fill current United States needs in many of tli em. _. This is pointed out by Charles A. Hickman, in a study for the doctor of philosophy degree at the University of Iowa. . Such sources, he said, could fill needs in nickel, quartz, crystals, coconut shell char, antimony, tungsten, and mercury. Producers could provide "significant portions'' of manganese and tin re quiremehts, and small quantitie: of rubber, quinine, mica, and chromium. "On a long range basis, the western hemisphere could produce a very .'appreciable quantity of most of- the fourteen materials Such a transformation would require a large scale investment, an appreciable length of time, at least equality of tariff tieafment, am" elimination of drastic transports tion arid labor shortages," Di Hickman said. Kc'.spys that such'expansion of western hemisphere sources might marke'dlr influence United States foreign economic policy, foreign investment, and foreign trade. "Perhaps part of the needed investment might be advanced by public agencies such as the Export-Import bank or the proposed Inter-American b a n k . United States foreign trade also might be altered, with the volume, geographical distribution, and composition of our total world commerce being affected," s a i d Dr. Hickman. + CLUB NEWS + Meetings of North Iowa Organizations The harp, lute, psaltry, sackbut, viol, cornet, dulcimer, 0ute, pipe, organ, trumpet, '- shawn, bells, cymbals, tabret and tim- brel are all musical instruments mentioned in the Bible.

BUILDING SUBS IN BIG CHUNKS Wisconsin Firm Turns Out Undersea Crafts . MANITOWOC, Wis., (IP)--Here on the shore of Lake Michigan, a thousand miles from salt water Charles C. West is building submarines as they never were buil' before. Six thousand men and women are helping him, not only experienced shipbuilders, but cherry- pickers, country school teachers barbers, some of them driving 6( miles'to work daily in the clatter ing yards of the Manitowoc Ship building company. Geographically, this is probably the safest place in the world to build submarines. It is also the strangest, lor the undersea- craf must be floated along inland waterways all the way to the Gulf of Mexico before they can begin to.fight. One, the U. S. S. Peto.'alread; has reached New Orleans. Fou' more impatiently ride the Mani towoc river in various stages o commissioning, and five are 01 the, ways. The navy will not disclose the number of submarine, to be constructed in Manitowoc but it has permitted a general account of how the job is beinj, done. West, who is president of th Manitowoc Shipbuilding c o m- pany, explains the method in fiv words: "We build t h e m ii chunks." Sixteen chunks or sub-assemblies, plus a conning tower, a are built on jigs indoors, the hoisted through the roof and lak on the ways, where they resemb a thickly sliced loaf of'rye bread Welders take over at this point and under their sparkling tools the chunks become a submarine. West said the Peto was the firs submarine ever built in this manner for the United States navy Her sister ships are now on a pro duction line, with hulls bein; completed in 30 per cent o£ thi time it took to put together thi Pcto. foecently a British subma rine builder came to Manitowoc ' to inspect the oporr.tions. Before I he left, West said, he announced the Manitowoc technique would be adopted in his yards. West's yards have been building water craft since the days of the sailing vessel. During the last war it was freighters. But subs are something new. A FLYER THROUGH THE AIR Fred Schoenfeld of near Ida irove took a tumble in his car ecently, that he doubtless would igt care to repeat. The wheels aught in a crusted snow bank, causing the car to go out of control and down a 20-foot embankment. Fred climbed out of the back seat, where he found himself, looked for a broken bone, but found only a skinned nose. ALDEN DESCENDANT DIES j took pride in telling (lie famou? COLL1NGDALE, Pa.
