2-Afgena (In.) Uppif Dt* Moinai Thursday, July 1, 195S Farm Outlook: Estimate More Hogs Next Year More hogs next your—that's the story, according to the U. S. Department of Agriculture June pig report. It means lower hog prices, says Francis A. Kutish, Iowa Stall College farm economist, will) (he biggest percentage difference fn>m last year coming in the next S months. Farmers raised about 9 percent more hogs last spring. Big end of the boost was in early-farrowed pigs. December-February litters were up -2 percent—March-May I' only 3 percent. On June 1. farmers were planning 10 percent boost in fall litters If these plans are carried through, the nation's farmers will raise a little more than 100 million pigs this year—third largest output on record. Only the 1942 and 1943 crops topped it. This means more meat for consumers. Over the years, consumers have eatrn more meat only if'prices were lower. Part of the effects of more meat will he offset by higher consumer incomes— but not all. So Kutish looks for lower hog prices, with the big uncertainty in the timing of the price trends. Thus, there is every incentive for Kossulh 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 Julv, August and September. Feed costs will be lower than last year—so the hog-corn ratio won't drop as much as hog prices >* A •* SEMI-ANNUAL SHOE SALE 1 _,„.>->• Starts Friday at 9 a.m. Savings up to SO on famous brand shoes from regular stock.

(Photo by Nels Isaacson) New Amendment To Unemployment Law Explained Workers Kvci 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 mure 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, 1956. Tidbits From Evelyn Heinie Stebriiz knows Law- they are made. Mr and Mrs Mid- renco Welk's orchestra is one of my favorites, so when lie learned the orchestra was to be on TV lie phoned me telling me the hour. Now I don't have a TV, in lad, 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 old head was working this time, too. I got myself comfortably 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 program 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 1 believe they wore called. By straining ones cars, one could hear distant music. By dividing the sets and going into a huddle, four persons could struggle at the same time.
