" * • * Therefore we can expect that the 14 visitors will be primed for a searching scrutiny of American farming techniques and will prepare an intelligent report about them to the Russian government. £0r Russia, this may or may 1 not be of vajue. However farm production ' has been one of the Kremlins worst headaches. In •fact it has been the failure of Russian agriculture to do its job that has brought about shake-ups and ousters of many high officials, including Malenkov. * * * However, it will be hard for the , visitor to. reconcile the Russian ' concept of farming with the American. If any of them have an open mind they cannot help but see that American agriculture is producing on the basis of private incentive, and not as a communal property. It might be well to, remember that Russia's agricultural failure began about the time that the individual farmer was removed from that status and began operating immense tracts , of land that he did not own. There are some today whb''would have our total farm population ,'greatly reduced, with a few owninVlm- mense tracts of land and mining them accordingly. In fact one U. S. D. A. official has said that the only thing wrong with our farming is that we have too many farmers. Russia put the "squeeze play" on its farmers, and it didn't work out. Solid, profitable farming has been the backbone of economic well-being for not only our own nation but every nation in the world that has prospered since the advent of the plow. • * * Something different was enjoyed by Swea and Eagle township members of the Swea City FFA chapter ... they recently toured the Ozark area... making the trip were Ronald Peterson, Allen Peterson, Duane Jensen, Dennis Lund, Eugene Papenfuhs, Bob and Ronald Keltvad, Larry Torine, Robert Troff, Paul Hanson and Allen Claussen from Eagle, and Billy Gies, Norman Ottman, Kevin Thorson, Howard Roalson, Harlan Rippentrop, Vincent Pavik, Dick Grabinowski, and Frank Clark, 76, editor and publisher of The Titonka Topic for the past 16 years and father of H. V. Clark, publisher of Thu Bancroft Register, died suddenly at his office in Titonka Tuesday afternoon about 4 o'clock. Mr Clark had been hospitalized three times in the past fourteen weeks and following his release from St. 'Ann .hospital, Algona, July 3, he had been at the home of his son in Bancroft, in an attempt to regain his strength and health. A heart condition was the cause of his death. During his illness The Titonka Topic work had all been done in The Bancroft Register plant, with a Bancroft 'representative making nearly daily trips to Titonka to pick up the news and advertising copy. Mr Clark accompanied his son to Titonka on Monday for a brief .stay.' Tuesday he ate his breakfast and noon meal as usual and accompanied his grandson, Tom Clark, to Titonka about 2 o'clock. Tom started home to Bancroft about 3:30 with th'e copy for this week's Titonka Topic and Mr Clark remained in Titonka to visit with a business associate. Within a very short time he collapsed in the arms of his visitor, a young man from Mason discovered about nobn, Wednesday, on the Maynard Jensen farm, two miles west and % mile north of Swea City, totally destroyed the barn; old hay and straw in the barn, the tool shed, part of the granary, a new cornpicker and two farrowing houses. The barn was nearly new. The house was also damaged, with water Ailing the basement. All livestock was accounted for except one pig. Mr Jensen was in the field, and Mrs Jensen had been in the barn about 11:30 a.m. About noon she looked out and saw smoke coming from the barn. Fire departments from Swea City, Bancroft, Ledyard, Armstrong and Estherville were called. The farm has an electric pump system, and the fire burned off the wires, so water had to be hauled from Swea City and from neighbors' places. Cause of the fire is unknown. There was no new hay in the barn. Loss had not been estimated. At 2 p.m. Wednesday, several fire companies were still standing by. although the fir by then was* under control.

There was no estimate of total oss made. Russell City. Smith, leader, Swea Algona had a visit last week from a former resident, who during his youthful career here gave music lessons. "As I look back", he remarked with a grin, and fbrobably thinking of his years of experience since those early teaching days, "I think maybe I should refund their money." * * * We had an office visitor, recently, M. D. Pringle of Lakota, an oldtime auctioneer who has been crying sales for some 45 years— and reading the Upper Des Moines about the same length of time... Mr Pringle says he has conducted 6,000 auctions in hlt> lifetime, including some up in Canada. That's a lot of sales, and a lot of vocal energy, but Mr Pringle, now in his 70's, gives no indication of being played out, and we wouldn't be surprised it he cried a few more. * * * That woman Bible expert who took the $32,000 and let the try at $64,000 go, wasn't unwise . . . in addition to risking the loss of the $32,000 by trying for the $64,000, had she been successful, most of the second $32,000 would have gone for income taxes her advisors figured out. « * * Sign in Fenton Cafe: If you drink and drive Make it milk and stay alive. * * * Tommy Manville's 9th wife, from whom he rcently became estranged, is going about it a little different.

Estimate 40-60 Bu. Oats To Acre . Oats are going down, in the iteral sense of the word, as Kosuth County farmers are keeping >usy harvesting one of the largest at crops in a number of years, according to Dean Barnes, county extension director. Barnes went on to report that although rain caused lodging in some fields, the oats are disease free and all signs point to a bumper crop. At this time only a few crops have been completely harvested, so an accurate report on yield to the acre is unavailable, but some farmers have stated that they feel that it will be anywhere from 40 to 60 bushels, which is way above the average yield for this area in the past number of years. Barnes stated that beans and soybeans are looking good, but there have been a few reports of insect damage in hay and alfalfa. Most of the insect damage is of the grasshopper variety, and the green destroyers are getting more numerous every day. Early planted corn is beginning to tassel out, and other varieties are expected to follow suit in a few days.

At aboul the same time the Johnsons drove to Sexton-to see if the Kelleys were here. They all returned to their picnic spots. Late in the afternoon when the Johnsons started home they went by the Kelleys, who were at the next spot about 30 yards away.
