By Russ Waller * t* * H- we lack anything else Jo debate this week, we can discuss the visit of the Russian.; to Iowa • • . it goes to show the Power ol the Press, or how one little ecutonal can blossom into ;in exchange of American and Russian citizens and pages of new, fresh copy and pictures to relieve that mid-summer monotony of newsman and reader alike." • • • Our friend Carl Hamilton of the Iowa Falls Citizen, whose home town is playing host one day and night for the Russians, has a good pipeline somewhere. He announced last week that the Russians visiting us are not in a strict sense of the word "farmers." They are actually Soviet deputies. agricultural administrators and technicians. There is wrong with. this — th invitation said Krushchev nothing original "any delegation wants to select . . " Therefore we can expect that the 14 visitors will be primed for a searching scrutiny of American farming techniques and will pie- pare an intelligent leport about them to the Russian government. For Russia, this may or may not be of value. However f.irm production has been one of the Kremlin's 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 fanning with the American. If any of them have an open mind they cannot help but see that American agriculture if producing on the basis of private incentive, and not as a communal propei ty. 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 who would have our total farm population greatly reduced, with u few owning immense 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 ".-quee/e play" on its farmers, and it didn't work out. Solid, piofitable farming has been the backbone of economic wt 11-beir.g 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 t >wr,.-hip members-of the Swea City FFA chapter . . . they recently toured the Ozark area . .. making tin- trip were Ronald Peterson.

Algona had a visit last week from a former resident, who dui- ing his youthful career here gave music lessons. "As I look back", he remarked with a grin, and probably thinking of his. years of experience since those early teaching days, "I think maybe I should refund their money. 1 ' • • • 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 hl& 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. • * * Thai 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 dxive Make it milk and stay alive. * * » Tommy Manville's 9th wife, from whom he rcently became estranged, is going about it a little different.

Fire Destroys Barns On Swea City, LuVerne Farms Swea City — Fire which was discovered about noon, Wednesday, on the Maynard Jensen farm, two miles west and 'j 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 filling the basement. All livestock was accounted for except one pig. Mr Jensen was in the field, and Mrs Jen-en had betn 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 olf the wires, so water had to be hauled from Swea City and from neighbors' places. Cause of the fire is unkn'.wn. There was no new hay in the barn. Loss had not been estimated. At 2 p.m. -Wednesday, several fire companies weiv s.il! standing by, bv then was although the under control. fire BAHN DESTROYED IN 2 A.M. FIRE Firemen from Algona, LuVerne and Corwith battled a blaze in a big, 2-year old barn on the Hanna ranch, 7 miles south and l\? miles east of Sexton, during, the wee hours Wednesday morning, but failed to save the structure and 120 acres of chopped hay which went up in smoke. Saved from the blaze were 120 head of feeder cattle, and practically all machinery which was housed in the building. A passerby noticed fire coming out of the ventilators on the barn's roof and notified one of the tenants who in turn called the three departments to the scene. Local firemen were called at 2:30 a.m.. and battled to keep flames away from another barn and machine shed for two hours. There was no estimate of total loss made.

Art Olson, well-known Sexton- ite, finally made it after 30 years. While playing cribbage with Merle Moxley Saturday morning, Art held a perfect 29 hand—the first of his lengthy career. He and Moxley, Archie Elbert and Bill Moxley were astounded when Olson's hand of three fives and a Jack became perfect when the other five was turned off the deck. The foursome was waiting for the moisture to dry up in a hayfield east of Algona at the time of the incident. A most tragic mishap resulting from children at play claimed the life of Allan Lee Hanna. 10, son of Mr and Mrs George Hanna, Wednesday night of last week. Allan, with his parents, had returned to Lone Rock from California for a visit. The family had moved west from Lone Rock 15 months ago. With three other youths, a game of "weed spear" was in progress. One of the sharply pointed weeds struck Allan just behind his left ear. He reported it to his folks, and they called an Algona doctor and .-aid they were bringing'him in for attention. When Dr. M. G. Bourne later extracted the weed point, which was protruding from the boy's neck, he found a piece about 24 inches long had severed an artery. Emergency treatment was given to tin- severed artery in the doctor's office, and he was then rusheU to St. Ann hospital. He seemed in no great pain, and told his mother that his playmates didn't mean to harm him —"we were only playing, mother." A few minutes later he stopped breathing, and although artilical respiration and oxygen were given, the youthful life ended. Death was attributed to an injury to the brain from the point of the "weed spear." Funeral services for Allan were held Saturday at the Trinity Lutheran Church in Algona at 2 p.m. Rev. Luther Loesch officiated and burial was in the Burt township cemetery. McCullough's Funeral Chapel was in charge of arrangements. Allan Lee, son of Mr and Mrs George A.

Estimate 40-60 Bu. Oats To Acre Oats are going down, in the literal sense of the word, as Kossuth County farmers are keeping busy harvesting one of the largest oat crops in a number of year.-', according to Dean Barnes, county extension director. Barnes went on to report that although rain caused lodging in sonic fields, the oats are disease live 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. louiih's Funeral Chapel charge ot ai rangements.

At about tht same time the John-'ons drove to Sexton to see if tin Ke-lle-ys 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.
