2-At8«»iitt (la.) Mbftill ' ThuMiiy, July 7, FarffiOiitlook: Estimate More More hogSi next year—that's the story, according to the 1 U. S. Department of Agriculture Jtitte pig repbrt. it: rrieans lower hog prices, says Francis A. Kutish, Iowa Stale .College farm econp- mist, with the biggest percentage difference from last year, coming in the next 5 months. Farmers raised about 9 percent more hogs last spring. Big end of trie bSdst was in early-farrowed pigs. December-February litters were up 22 percent—March-May farrowings only 3 percent. On June 1, farmers were planning 10 percent boost m fall litters. If these plans are carried through,'"the nation's farmers will riilse a little more than 100 million pigs th'is year—third.largest output on record. Only the 1942 -•*;"•",. and 1943 Wop's topped it. • This mgahi ittdfb mfeflt for consumers. Over the years, consumers have eaten more ;tneat only if prices were lower. Part of the effects of more meat will be offset by higher consumer incomes—: but not all. So Kutish look's follower hog prices, Mth .the big uncertainty in the timing of < the price trends. Thus, there is every incentive for Kossuth County farmers to get their hogs off to market as fast as they can this summer and early fall. Kutish expects hog marketings to rise rapidly in late July, August and September- Feed costs will be lower than last year—so the hog-corn ratio won't drop as much as hog prices!. ~i$tMi&®iMW$zm'&^::&iy^£.ftMi£l%3W?3$x* Starts Friday at 9 a.m. ' '...-' : . • W ' - —.^———.

It takes a lot Of talking to cover years.- New Amendment To Unemployment Law Explained Workers l&'d off from their regular jobs and unable to find work will be entitled to as much as $30 per week, due to recent amendments to Iowa's unemployment insurance law, effective July 4. The employment security commission called attention to the fact that unemployment insurance claims filed after July 4, will entitle claimants to the above maximum and also that the duration of weekly payments may extend to as much as 24 weeks, instead of 20 weeks, as under former provisions of the law. The , Fifty-sixth General Assembly also amended the employment security law by lowering •the coverage from eight or more workers, to four- or more', thus making all employers of four or more workers in commercial and industrial employment subject to and liable under the employment security law. This amendment becomes effective Jan. 1, 1958. U-D-M Tidbits From Evelyn CLEAN UP 106 PAIRS CHILDREN'S SHOES.

SHOE STORE Heinle Stebritz knows Lawrence Welk's orchestra is one of my favorites, so when he learned the orchestra was to be on TV he phoned me telling me the hour. Now I don't have a TV, in fact, my roof looks nude with no antenna • in this neighborhood of multiple sets, so do you know what I did? I'm usually very resourceful and I am sure you will agree the aid head was working, this time, too. I got myself com- ' fortably settled on the bed, took the phone from the living room, called Heinie and told him I was all set to listen. I could hear the ptogram very well, heard Dick Dale, whom I have heard so much about— and didn't have to hold the receiver, just propped • it against a pillow. This reminded me of the old crystal radio sets. Remember when we sat around with ear phone gadgets, head, sets I believe they were called. By straining ones ears, one could hear distant music. By dividing the sets and going into a huddle, four pei-sons could struggle at the same time. Blessed be the man who brought the origriial invention up to it's present estate. not It anyone says to me today (July 4th) "Is it hot enough for yo.u?", I'll throw the handiest .hing at hand—I might even toss the typewriter at them. After an almost sleepless night I am in no mood for levity. It wasn't that the room was too warm—jn fact there was a nice breeze, but I switched, from head to foot and it upset my sleeping. What creatures of habit we are. One of my friends slept on a pad down stairs — Oh, not exactly SLEPT, for she tossed and tumbled even as I.
