LANE APPLIANCES Phone 778 Algona Among those present was Howard Seely, local farmer and president of the Iowa Sheep association. Mr Seely reported that about 150 people attended the supper whicn was a real American creation spotlighting peas, potatoes, and grilled beef. It was n meal that the Russians enjoyed very much. Mr Seely sat next to an agronomist who led a field tour and got much first hand information. The agronomist reported that the delegation, which is made up of department officials rather than real Russian farmers, were particularly interested in corn and methods by which they can produce a greater quantity for silage purposes. Along with this they seem to be quite interested in dairy cattle and swine. The Russians are planning a large upswing in corn production on their community farms. The agronomist told Mr Seely that one Russian stated that on one community farm of 10,000 acres there are 1700 families that work together to make their living. Mr Seely found the Russians very polite and witty, with a great desire to mix well with the Americans. With wide grins and arms raised they joined in on a chorus of the "lovay" Corn Song. Seely expressed the opinion that, "it will be experiments such as this one, with Russian people and American people getting together on a common interest that may do the most towards leading to world understanding and security."
