f of Porlt Raisers o A Demand For a Leaner Strip pf Bacon/ Leaner pork Chops And Roasts, Leaner Hams ."'•. . Producers of Pork Today Are Anxious To Please You - The General Public. Meat - Type Hogs Give You More For Your Money. OCTOBER IS DESIGNATED AS EATlilRE PORIMVIONTH PALATABLE, NUTRITIOUS, AND THE BEST FAMILY BUDGET BUY MEMO TO PORK RAISERS - (From Iowa Swine Producer's Ass'n) It will be more Important to select a MEAT BOAR this fall to sire your next year's pig crop than at any time In the history of the hog usiness. Good, meaty gilts will give the well- muscled boar a better chance to win customers for hams, chops and other products from the hog. ' . . . Many have thought length the only requirement for a meat type hog. To be a meat hog, it must have muscle, plenty of it, from one end to the other. Hornless, meatless, poor- doing hogs are not the answer. , All breeds, new and old, have some of t he right kind, plus many we do not want. Testing and selection of the better muscled hogs is the answer - not reaching in a bag to pull out a new breed. Too many have tried to produce meat hogs by breed - not by selection. . V- Some of the meatiest, best.going hogs found in the meat type certification program have been found in some of our older breed s. It takes a good hog to meet these requirements, not a poor doer. ' Some believe support prices our only so lution in the swine business. Any support under hogs that ignore quality will only provoke the swine producer's problems. We are still paying for lack of regulations on quality during OPA and OPS. The poorest brought the same price as the best. The way to win customers for ham, chops and bacon is with better muscled hogs, well- processed and attractively merchandised. Pro ducers must do their part - ifs later than you think. , ' . * Western Buyers Will Pay Premium Prices For MEAT-TYPE Hogs . , . Well Come To Your Farm, Tell You Your Amount of Premium, Every Day Is Premium Day On MEAT-TYPE Hogs! We also wish tQ express our appreciation for the many complimentary messages we have received as a result of oyr efforts to aid the pork raisers to improve his breeding and bring a better return for his efforts.

He added the extra point on a plunge to make it 7-0. The teams closed out the first half at midfield and Hampton retained its seven point bulge. Hampton r o 11 e*d • downfield twice in the third period, the first time for 45 yards to the Algona 20 where Joe Skilling covered a fumble for Algona, and the next time to the Algona 42. This drive was stopped when Towne slugged Moxley and Hampton was set back 15 yards. Algona Blocks Punt When the fourth period got underway, Hampton had the ball on its own 38. It was fourth and 27 at the time and the entire left side of Algona's line slammed through, blocked the punt and Kaincxi possession on the Harnp- ion 26, although the officials had trouble deciding who owned the pigskin. Meyer was stopped for no gain cl threw three incomplete oasses and Hampton took over on he 26. A one-yard gain and five yard penalty on Algona gave the ionic team u second and four on its own 32. Bob Jensen .'crashed in and ossed Thomas for a six-yard loss and Fred Strahorn pinned Towne "or an eleven yard loss back on he 15, so Hampton punted. The boot went to the 50 and Finlay returned 13 to the Hampton 37. Six straight carries by Meyer who went three, two, six, eight, 16 and finally two for the TD got the locals back within striking distance. Doug's place-kick went low and straight to tie the count at 7-7, with only 6.20 remaining to play. It looked like plenty of time for Hampton however, as they started from their own 33 and moved rapidly downfield. -Lenius and Towne took turns as the home club went 58 yards to Algona's nine but fell two yards short of a first down and Algona took over. Finley gained five yards as the game ended. Statistics Favor Hampton Hampton outgained Algona, 239-139, during the game, getting all of its yardage on the ground. Algona ran for 112 and passed for 27 as Meyer accounted for 128 yards. A definite lack of blocking was spotted throughout the contest, and most of the Algona gains came as a result of hard running. For Hampton, Towne led the way with 134 yards in 20 tries, an average of almost seven yards each attempt. Defensively, Finley, Skilling, Tyke Wins In Homecoming Tilt, 14 To 7 : Titonka's Indians rolled up a wide statistical edge in down- ing'a determined Mallard team, 14-7, at Titonka Friday night.

The Indians will shoot for their fourth win of the year against one loss when they travel to West Bend tomorrow (Friday) night for an important Cornbell Conference clash. Tiionka has a 1-1 league mark. Titonka kicked off to Mallard and got a real scare. - The Ducks roared from their own 30 to Titonka's three yard line in 1G plays, but bogged down short of the 'end zone and the Indians took over. Sid Buffington lightened Titonka hearts on the first play when he zipped for 67 yards to the Mallard 30. -Gary Smidt and Buffington carried to the Mallard ten as the first period ended, Buffington-scored from the ten on the first play of the second period and Dennis* Krominga split the uprights with a place- kick to make it 7-0.

The Ducks started from their 20, carried to the 38 in two plays and Willis Fain fad-. ed back and hit Don Olesori with a perfect pitch for 70 yards and the TD. A line plunge tied the count at 7-7. , The Indians marched right back to take the.lead for good. Starting 'from .their own 30. Gary Srriidt and Carol Asche. took turns carrying the' mail to the Mallard six. Asche -went the final six yards for the touchdown and Krorhing'a converted agnin to make it 14-7.- 'Titonka completed three straight passes just before the half and moved to the Mallard five yard line but failed to cash, in. Mallard controlled the third stanza, and at one time went to the. Indian 15, but a fumble cut the rally down. The final quarter was all Titonka, as Mallard had a chance to run only two plays during the 12 minutes. Titonka threatened twice, but the Ducks held. Smidt gained 129 yards in 21 trips and Buffington 123 yards in 15-tries to top the Titonka at- tuck.
