MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE TUESDAY, JANUARY 30, 1S13 Â·11 WET CORN BIG FARM PROBLEM Bumper Crop Needs Handling Immediately "Farmers in Cerro Gordo county ; have a serious problem on their -hands right now to take care of .the wet corn," said Ernest W. "Buss, chairman of the Cerro Gordo Â· county AAA committee. "A large part of Iowa's bumper corn crop has an unusually high rate of moisture content owing to unfavorable maturing weather last fall. Farmers evidently planned to sell part of this corn during , : the winter, as not many of them improvised cribs to store it and dry it out. " "Now, the problem of not being able (o get transportation service is stopping the movement of this corn. Many elevators are already full. The drying facilities in terminal elevators are taxed to the limit which retards shipping." "War conditions have made it necessary to use greater amount of transportation facilities to move war equipment." "A bad snow storm throughout the eastern states has blocked traffic and tied up cars. It will take days to get traffic and freight moving in anything like normal operation." :'-". "Still another factor in the case is that Nebraska and South Dakota had bumper crops of corn in 1944. Much of this corn is high in moisture content, and lacking permanent s t o r a g e accommodations, farmers in these states are mov- -ihg it into market channels, which has added to the glutted situation." Farmers will have to handle this ^problem themselves if they avoid a loss, according to Air. Buss. Two courses are open, (1) Construct Â· narrow, temporary cribs out of fencing or any material available : -with floors built up off the ground. The .lumber might be used for other purposes later. A big per : cent of the corn in these cribs will dry out and can be marketed spring pigs. The WFA needs more meat, lard and milk. "Out of 56 samples taken from cribs of farmers in Cerro Gordo county desiring to seal their corn under the commodity loan program, 14 were dry enough to meet the sealing requirements," said Mr. Buss. "Of all the samples tested, the average moisture has been running about 23 per cent The maximum amount of moisture that corn can have for sealing is 20% per cent in a 7 foot crib, and for every foot in width wider than a 7 foot crib the moisture content must come down one per cent. "Farmers can help the war effort and save money by taking care of their corn," concluded Buss. "I believe the farmers of Cerro Gordo county will take hold of this problem just like they have all other tough problems and solve it to the best advantage for themselves and their country."

L. Quaife, extension swineman at Iowa State college. Quaife says 2 of the biggest killers of little pigs in the spring are chilling and crushing. The danger is greatest during the first 2 or 3 days of the pig's life. Last year, for example, Iowa farmers weaned an average of slightly less than 6 pigs a litter, which was a loss of from 3 to 4 pigs from farrowing to weaning time. Such losses should be avoided .this year because of the urgent demand for all meat, especially pork. Where electricity is available, brooders do the best job of getting the heat down where the little pigs live. They can* be built at home at little co.st. Quaife suggests using a 100-watt bulb in the brooder while the pigs are.small; the size can be reduced later. If electricity isn't available, it's a good idea to have some other form oÂ£ heat for the little pigs.-A jug of warm water in a basket is a good idea, if the farmer can attend the sow at farrowing time. Guard rails do the job of protecting the pigs from crushing. They should be about 8 inches off the floor and about the same distance from the wall. Care should be taken to see that they are fastened securely to the sides of the pen and that straw doesn't pile under them. Goal of 20,000,000 Fixed by '45 Victory Garden Committee A goal of 20,000,000 victory gardens--more than were mad.e in 1944--was fixed for 1945 by the national victory garden conference held in Washington at the call of the war food administration and the U. S. department of agriculture. The conference was called to dispel the uncertainty which had arisen from news and radio reports which represented the victory garden movement as no longer necessary. These reports were the outgrowth of a wave of optimism which swept the country in the late summer, when collapse of Germany seemed near. It then s e e m e d possible that heavy reservations of the 1944 commercial pack of canned goods made for the armed forces might be reduced, and the amount available for civilian use correspondingly increased.. It was'this possibility that led to,the removal of canned goods from the ration list at that time. Hope for an early victory was short-lived, however, and when the conference was called it was already apparent t h a t any let down in victory garden production of vegetables might bring about serious scarcity. A survey by the department of agriculture presented to the conference indicated t h a t in 1944 only 18,500,000 victory gardens had been made, as compared with Seek Sweet Potato Seed in Florida W. J. Shoultz of Muscatine, Chris Christensen of Morrtrose and C. L. Fitch of Ames are in Marianna in northwest Florida trying to arrange for a better supply of seed for the 3,000 acres of sweet potatoes grown each year in southeast Iowa, says W. A. Hendrikson of Estherville, president of the Iowa State Vegetable Growers' association. Iowa consumers eat hundreds of carloads every 12 months of soft orange fleshed sweet potatoes that come from the south; but those that like the drier fleshed Yellow Jersey for baking are dependent mainly upon about 100 commercial growers in the Fruitland - Conesville - Montrose areas of their own state for these smooth brown delicious tubers for their ovens and tables. SPOILAGE FOUND IN SOYBEAN BIN Moisture Collects Under Top Surface Iowa farmers who have soybeans stored on their farms from last summer's crop probably should examine them for signs of spoilage, according to .W. V. Hukill, United States Department'of Agriculture. Mr. Hukill is in charge of corn and soybean, storage both at the Iowa Agricultural Experiment station and the Illinois station. Hukill reports that tests show beans stored with a moisture content as low as-12 per cent may give trouble.'

Egg production for the U. S. for November, 1344, was 250,000,000 dozen, 10 per cent above 1943 and ;a record for that month. ... ........ 22,000,000 in 1943. A m u c h greater drop had taken place in the amount of home canning. Too many gardeners who had put up more vegetables in 1943 than they could use in a year, canned none at all in 1944; so that reserves on storeroom shelves had been heavily reduced. For the armed forces, 41 per cent of the 1941 commercial pack had been set aside, and any chance of its release had disappeared. This would reduce the commercial canned goods available to civilians to 56 per cent of that available a year ago. Judge Marvin Jones addressed the conference, and his speech gave warning of the change which had taken place in the outlook, since the early fall. "Three months ago there was much optimism that the" war would be over before the end-of this year," said he. "This hope has now been discounted. H i s t o r y shows 'that nations with ample food supplies win victories. Food is just as necessary as guns, tanks and planes. Home gardeners produced over 40 per- cent of the fresh vegetables supply this year and we are asking them to equal this, record.in 4945- We. cannot afford to "slow down now when is almost within our tively warm beans at the center of the bin collects just under the cold top surface and raises the moisture content there enough to cause spoilage. Even though spoilage may not show up in actual rotting of the beans, it will result in poor germination next spring if the beans are used for seed. If the situation is bad enough the loss in germination may be 10 per cent. If wet or damp beans are found at the surface, every effort should be made to take care of them he- fore they cause extensive damage. A thorough stirring of the beans with a rake or shovel at frequent intervals will generally prevent most spoilage. Removal of wet beans won't always solve the problem, Hukill says, because further moisture accumulation niay take place at the new surface. They got about 100 bushels per acre and should get 200. It is hoped to develop enough quality seed supply to share w\th other northern regions growing Yellow Jerseys. It is the belief of the_ association that volume of trade in good seed will make the supply surer-for all regions.

Heturn of canned vegetables to the ration l i s t with, high point values followed s o o n after the conference, arid gave further proof of the serious view taken by national leaders of the situation as to vegetable supplies, and the need for continued production in victory gardens. Farm Supply Outlook in '45 Spotty The supply outlook for needed farm equipment and supplies for this year is spotty, according to reports received by Iowa State college. There probably 'will be less new farm machinery than there was last year, although the production program calls for about the same supply. Manufacturers, however, have been falling far behind schedule on new production. Care, share and repair will be essential again this year. At least as many farm hand tools are in prospect, with many of these items moving to farms from stocks of surplus war property. Manufacturers of fence wire and netting have been authorized to produce at a greater rate than their prewar output. No shortage is expected in nails, staples, baling wire and pipe. Supplies of farm chain also should be adequate. Copper wire is getting more scarce, but the reports say the shortage of transformers is likely to limit the demand for wire. There should be about the same amount of metal roofing and siding as a year ago. SOYBEANS MAY SUPPLANT OUTS Shift Seen in Iowa to Meet '45 Goals Soybeans in Iowa for 1945 probably most profitably can take over acreages at the expense of oats, where oats are not planted with new grass seedings. Earl O. Heady, and A. J. Englehorn, research workers at Iowa State college, recommend this type of. shift in crop plans as the one which will make possible greatest total food .production. State goals for soybeans must be met as an absolute wartime necessity. Beady and Englehorn therefore suggest that some parts of the state assume the heavy share of the acreage, where they can do it more profitably than a statewide spread would be. Too, a greater acreage of flax in northwest Iowa means that section must be ruled out for heaviest soybean production.- Since soybeans compete mainly with corn and oats for land and labor on Iowa's farms, taking priority over oats seems the most logical move. The Iowa State college men point out in the new issue of the Iowa Farm Economist, however, that practically every farmer has some opportunity to grow beans without sacrificing income. Where it is figured that one crop is grown instead of another, present yield and price differences make corn in general more profitable than soybeans in Iowa. But a certain acre:age of soybeans finds its place each year in te diversified agriculture of the state, in the normal rotation system. In case of a wet and backward planting season, soybeans allow the farm operator more leeway in the use of his labor. The crop may be planted late and harvested as either grain or hay, depending on the length of the growing season. Too, the earlier harvesting season for soybeans means some reduction in the farmer's fall labor peak. Beans provide a protein feed to go along wtih Iowa's corn. Also, their plant food requirements are considerably different, as compared with corn and oats in the crop rotation. In feed deficit areas of the state, however, a large soybean acreage may even cut into feed supplies. Fitzsimmons Named State Supervisor Â· J o h n Fitzsimmons, assistant supervisor of emergency f a r m labor programs in the extension service of Iowa State college, has been named state supervisor, Director R. K. Bliss announced. He will succeed Floyd Johnston, who has acted as state supervisor since 1943. Johnston will return to his former post as extension dairyman. He will continue to devote a portion of his time to the farm labor program. "The shift has been m a d e," Bliss said, "because of the pressing need for alt kinds of dairy products. The educational work in the field of dairy production is one that needs more attention than the limited field force working at the present time can devote to it." Fitzsimmons also directs landscape architecture extension work at the college. The state farm., labor supervisor is responsible for all emergency farm labor recruitment and placement programs in the state. The use of prisoners of war in agri- By PAUL R. BUMBAKGER Iowa Daily Press Writer Des Molnes, (IDPA)--F ire- works, surprises and consideration of m a j o r legislation has shaken the general assembly out of its lethargy. More dynamite will be set off this week. Biggest surprise was the house rejection of a proposal that a committee be named to investigate the feasibility of the state purchasing a home for the governors. Most prevalent explanation for the action was that the senate a day before had voted to increase the governor's salary from $7,500 to $10,000 annually, effective in 1947. Apparently legislators don't wish at 1 session to.give a governor both a salary raise anc furnish a home. Kline's Plea--Legislators ate a turkey dinner as guests of the Iowa Farm Bureau, heard Allan B. Kline, bureau president, urge full collection of the state income tax. "We'll cut it to 50 per cent tomorrow anyway," grunted a veteran senator in departing. The senate next day voted to do just that after a show of oratory. The result came as no surprise to Farm Bureau leaders, whose cause they recognized as an uphill fight. A Long W a y -- W h i l e Kline failed to sell the senate on Income tax, he enhanced his own reputation as a speaker and keen student of economics. His friends expect him to go a long way in the Farm Bureau. Many of them say that he would make the American Farm Bureau federation a good report them out with the word "administrative" deleted. Effect of this change would be to leave control of schools in local hands, leaving the state board only "supervisory" powers. Bits--Most overworked term in the executive offices is: ."I only want to see the governor a minute" . . . It's a pledge seldom kept . . .

Blue Note--Gov. R o b e r t D. Blue, who spoke briefly before Kline, may have unwittingly refuted some'of the Farm Bureau head's arguments in telling legislators that "what you do determines whether outside firms invest their money in our state." Legislators opposed to a state income tax, particularly those in border cities, contend the tax keeps industries from locating in [owa. How Dry--With so many young men in the service, legislators, included, the 51st general assembly, made up largely of older men, probably is more conservative than usual. Certainly it's membership has a larger percentage of "drys" than normally. This is true of the house in particular but to a lesser degree the same situation prevails in the senate. As the legislature prepares to face the liquor question, perspiration is appearing on the brows of many politically minded republicans because it's a hot issue with plenty of dynamite in it for the party. East Lawn Memorial Gardens Organized AlKona--An organization meeting for East Lawn Memorial Gardens was held recently and a board of directors was named for the ensuing year. Members are: Jess J. Deen, chairman, M. J. Pool, vice chairman; E. H. Pittman, secretary-treasurer, William C. Dau, Loren J. Brown, H. T. Barker and Lloyd F. Pratt. A meeting of property owners will be held each year at which time 2 new board members will be elected and 2 former board members will retire from office. Gaylord D. Shumway is attorney for the association and Security State bank depository of maintenance fund. When completed East Lawn will have 14 memorial gardens especially designed, each garden will be enclosed and a memorial symbolizing a religious faith will be erected. The first garden has been completed and its memorial is a glass Bible 8 by 5 feet with the Lord's prayer inscribed on the open pages. Other memorials will be a Bible and altar representing the church, a life size figure of Christ, the Hope of the World and a veteran's memorial. The gardens are located in the south part of WFA ASKS MORE PORK AND LARD Hog Production Needs Increased This Year More evidence on the need for increased hog production came into the county this week. Fred Clark of the Iowa agricultural extension service emphasized the need of more pork at the war food meeting. The evidence was in the form of 2 set-aside orders Â£ r o m the WFA in Washington. The 1st was an order saying t h a t beginning Jan. 21 packers operating under federal inspection would be required to set aside lard at the rate oÂ£ IVi pounds for each 100 pounds of live weight of each week's slaughter. This means about 40 per cent of the estimated production of all lard. The 2nd order also concerned pork. It increased the set aside order on loins f r o m 3^ to 4',i per cent. T h i s is necessary to meet the requirements of the armed forces. Mr. Clark pointed out, this means less pork and lard available for civilians at home. As reported before, a drastic cut in home meat consumption is in store this year. Farmers in the community can help the situation by increasing the number of late spring pigs. It's still not too late to breed sows for early June farrowing, and those pigs should be ready for market while the floor is still in affect-March 31, 1946. Crop Goals Set for '45 New Hampton -- Farmers in Chickasaw county will be asked to plant 87,000 acres of corn, 22,000 acres of soybeans and 55,000 acres of oats, it was disclosed at a joint AAA Farm Bureau meeting hero.

Hancock Farm Bureau Exceeds 1,000 Members Garner--T h e Hancock county Farm Bureau passed the 1,000 member mark Friday. The goal of 1,200 is still to be reached. _. First!Test--Local option bills on beer sales and establishment of state liquor stores have best charfce in recent years of passage. The first test will occur in the house this week. In other years such legislation has been kept in committees. Most prevalent guess is that the bills will pass the house and fail to pass the senate by a scant margin after a bitter fight, granting that senate committees report out the bills. 'Administration' Deleted--Iowa school code commission bills call for appointment of a state board of public instruction and give it "supervisory a n d administrative" powers.
