II; 'APRIL s MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE BETTER ROADS BETTER FARMING FLOYD SEEDING IS UNDER WAY ! NEW OATS TRIED Wool Producers to Ship Ou 15,000 Pounds Thru Pool. · Spring-, seeding is well under wa\ at this time and with favorabl weather the rest of this week am next, practically, all the seeding wll be finished in the county.' After th - recent snow and rain' the soil I: working up in nice shape altho th. moisture content is not as high a It should be. The winter has been exceptionally fine to prepare for spring work and in practically ever-' case the farmers were ready fo' seeding time when it arrived. A great deal of the riew varieties of oats are being sowed especially lo-gold, which is one of the'varie- ties developed recently at Iowa Stata college. .1931 Wool Pool. Local wool producers expect to ship approximately 15,000 pounds of ·--··wool out of Floyd county to be sold thru the pool of the Iowa. Sheep and Wool Growers' association in accord with the Federal Farm Board plan set up last year, according to H. W. Anway, county agent. : Last year Iowa wool growers shipped approximately 1250 000 pounds of wool, for which over 5200,000 was advanced ' after the wool was graded in Des Sloines. The number shipping from this county this year is expected to materially increase because of'the success of last year's plan. According TM, '""'"nation from the National Wool Marketing: Corporation in Boston, a little more than 70 per cent of the wool for 1930 has been sold On the basis of sales to date producers should receive three to seven cents a pound in addition to the advance payment made last summer which in most cases equalled the local market price. Sen Over Million Pbunds. Thirty-five hundred wool producers who sold the I'A million pounds "f 1 are receiving: approximately ) more than if they had sold the local market. This is an av- , ge of about $18 a grower JThe competition furnished local ' ^S s i ^ · ct -°Perative shippers C'lSa, n higher wool prices for ^T**^g|trdless of whether they itfeiAe grower who marketaThi's ANDJVIEWSOFTNTEREST TO FARMERSl THIS PAGE EDITED BY ARTHUR PICKFORD -- wool thru the state pool received a still higher price. PULSE of. theFARM I was talking with a farmer who has kept sheep for many years as did his father before him. He had just sold his wool, both last year's and this year's clip for 12 cents a pound. "This is the lowest price I ever received for wool," said he. "About one-half of wool Is what it usually is and one-fifth of what I got when the . boom was on. But this five pound overcoat cost me ?35 and my Sunday suit which weighs three pounds cost ?30." All of which shows how little the cost of the raw material has to do with the finished product.

WHYFARMERS CUT TREES. In another column is a protest from Harold Campbell of Mason City on the destruction of trees in this part of Iowa. Our observation is that the numerous wood piles, seen this winter are very largely soft wood from groves that have outgrown the use for which they were planted, or hedge rows that steal the sunlight and plant food from 50 feet on each side of them or if on roadsides, that fill the roads with snow in-'winter and the drain tile with rootlets and so perpetuate the mud road. In defense of the -tree cutting farmer, it may be' said that timber Uind in Iowa is not a revenue pro- ducer as compared with good corn or grass and as oaks grow only on high, dry land they naturally are cleared off to make way for crops of more profitable use.
