BEET GROWERS TO GET SOIL CONSERVATION PAY AAA RULING PUTS SUGAR INDUSTRY IN SOIL PROGRAM Producers to Get $10 An Acre on Same Basis as Other Crops. The sugar beet industry has been made an integral part of the general agricultural conservation program with the reduction of the acre- ige required in soil conservation crops to 4.0 per cent and tie payment of $10 an acre, according to a news report from the United States department of agriculture and the AAA at Washington, D. C. The announcement was good news to sugar beet growers in the north Iowa and southern.Minnesota ;erritory. Requirements Reduced. Under the program as announced a producer who has'10 acres in sugar beets would need to have 4 icres in soil conserving crops. Under the previous ruling he would have had to have at least 5 acres of 50 per cent of his beet acreage in clover or other soil conserving crops. "The provisions pertaining to sugar are a part of the general agricultural conservation program and co-ordinate with the sugar marketing quotas established under the Jones-Costigan act," information from the federal department stated. Must Be In Addition. The soil conserving acreage required must be in addition to other soil conserving acreage required under the program as it affects other crops, it was pointed out. This does not mean that the producer is required to plant this many acres to soil conserving crops in 1936, but merely that he has to have this much acreage, including that planted prior to 1936, in soil conserving crops on his farm this year. The payments for soil conserving crops grown in connection with sugar beets are apporximately the same as for acreage put in these crops in connection with the general M-ogram. For the country as a whole ihese payments for soil-conserving crops in connection with sugar crops will average approximately $10 an CONTEST PIECES TO BE OFFERED BY BAND SUNDAY Soloists in Competition at Cleveland Also to.

New impetus has been given to the work of the Boy Scouts of America throughout the nation with the inauguration of a 10 year program which has as. its ultimate goal the realization of the slogan, "One of every four new mate citizens a graduate of four years of scout training."

According to the latest census figures available, there are 1.684 12 year old boys in the North Iowa council area at the present time.

LONEROCK--Mr. and Mrs. Fred Stqley of Botna, and Herbert Clarke of Hector, Minn., were weekend guests of the Chris Shaser family. office of the chief of police due to to the construction of a large window which will be lighted at night to show the massive door. This will be the only opening into the vault, the walls of which are 12 inch concrete, reinforced with steel bars crossing every six inches, and insulated throughout on the inside with thick cork; The door to the vault is 10 inches thick, with an inner door of four inches. Keeps Pelts Soft The utmost protection from theft, moth larvae or. atmospheric conditions will be available in this new vault, which will be the only one in this section of the country in which the humidity as well as the temperature will be controlled. This feature will 'keep the pelts soft and fresh, according to Mr. Lyons. The vault is planned to be completed about the middle of May, in time for the present season's storage of furs. According to the bureau of entomology at Washington, D. C., sudden I changes from cold to warm temperature then back to cold kills moth larvae. The temperature of the vault will be held at 10 degrees, then boosted to 50 degrees and turned back to 34, degrees again where it will be held steady for a period of two weeks at a time. When completed the vault will have a capacity for 5,000 coats, any one of which will be obtainable on short notice at any time. Besides this new storage service Lyons Laundry and Dry. Cleaners will move their fur department into new and larger quarters. The fur department is in charge of Ben Benowitz, who has been with the firm for the past 12 months.

Coats will be manufactured at the establishment from the Sol Vogel patterns of New York, one of the outstanding importers of coat designs in this country. ' · Improvements Planned. Several other improvements have been planned throughout the large plant including the remodeling of the office, and the construction of a modern display room for furs. About $6.000 worth of modern laundry and dry cleaning equipment has been installed at the plant recently. One new machine which is an air vacuum unit connected to all the steam presses insures absolutely dry garments leaving the battery or presses. The installation of a large vacuum still and a pressure filter, both used in the purifying of the solvent used in dry cleaning are also recent additions to the equipment at the plant. This equipment keeps the sol ; vent in the same condition as it was when it left the refinery. Two additional presses of the latest type have been added to the laundry department as well as a new finishing form for trousers. The Lyons company furnishes its own soft water and power for the laundry and with the completion of a new 'boiler room and power plant, Lyons will have the most complete unit of any plant in Iowa.
