V Improving the mealiness of hogs may be one of the easiest' ' things Iowa hog producers have to do —if they do it right, according to Ralph Durham, extension animal husbandman at Iowa State College. He says one of the first things to remember is, although the old saying Went,, "The tioar, is half the herd," he is stili only half. Good sows are important too. Keep On-the-Farm Records ' . One of the first places to start making .improvements is on the farm, ; Durham says. It meaps keeping on-the-farm records so that you can select and keep as ' 'breeding stock the pigs that have the ability to survive and-pro- .ducejUnder practicial farm conditions. it's important, Durham says, to identify individual -pigs — and it's not hard. He says- a request to the Agricultural Extension Service will bring you directions for an ear-marking system that . is simple and easy to use. He says ear-marking- is a must for the producer who means to improve the quality of his market pigs. A simple litter record card can also be obtained from the Extension Service, he says. It will enable you to recognize the. fast• growing jneaty lines of breeding in your-swine herd. He says three steps are necessary for on-the-farm swine breeding improvement: (1) litter record cards, (2) ear notching and (3)full feeding of the breeding stock. - ' •('•"' Base Culling on Hecords Durham says the breeding stock should be fed just like you are going to feed' the descendants. By full feeding the breeding > stock you find it easy to recognize',> v , ihe-ones-thar get over-fat. Your" culling program can then be bas• ed on records of rate of gain and leaness of the pork the animal is producing. These two provide a good breed-selection balance. Durham suggests culling first from your herd the slow growers. Then by backfat measurements, select from the faster-growers the ones that are well muscled • without too much fat. He says the college Extension is contemplating setting up an on-the-farm testing program with the help of local swine producers' organizations. A central testing station is only part of the answer to the problem of producing good market hogs, Durham says. You can do a lot of this work on the farm.

Falls Next By Don Smith Jr. ' Clarion's long - range scoring blasts wrecked Algona's Homecoming celebration, 26-7, at the airgrounds Friday night before large crowd of hopeful fans, 'he loss left the Bulldogs in the \prth Central Conference cellar, till searching for their first win. Coach Loving's banged-up crew has an open date tomorrow night, then travels to Iowa Falls for another conference game Friday night, Oct. 28. The Cadets have proven to be one of'the surprise outfits in the league and will be fighting to remain in the race for the title. Clarion went in front to stay the first time it got the ball.'Alenna received the opening kickoff, gained eight yards in three jJays, so Doug Meyer punted to ;he Cowboys and they got underway from their own 38 yard line. Six running plays, with Don Wit;el and Jack McClelland carry- _ng the mail, moved the ball to the Algona 35, where it was third and eleven to go. McClelland fired a pass to Maynard Mosher who went all the way to make jt 6-0. The conversion attempt failed, Dut Clarion was in front with .ess than six minutes of play gone in the quarter. Clarion's Second Tally Clarion's second touchdown march against the poor-tackling Bulldogs began shortly before the end of the first period. The drive got underway from the Clarion 29 yard line and followed a Meyer punt. Two passes ate up 28 yards as the Cowboys moved to Algona's 31 at the buzzer. Seven plays into the second stanza, Neal Thompson dived over from the Algona one yard line to make it 12-0. McClelland passed to Thompson for the extra point to make it 13-0. Algona couldn't move after the ensuing kickoff, so once again punted. Clarion got TD number three in three plays that covered a total of 53 yards. Witzel counted on 'an end fun from the Algona 44 to make it 19^0. Almost six minutes remained in the half, and the Bulldogs almost made the most of it. The locals, took the kick-off, and with Meyer carrying the mail six times and passing to Rod'Klckbush for 28 yards, moved to Clarion'^, 14 yard line. The drive was thwarted when Thompson intercepted a oass on the eight and returned to the 11. The half ended two plays later with Clarion in front, 19-0. Clarion's superiority at this point was shown by the fact the visitors had 192 yards rushing and passing to 70 for Algona. Last Half Different The last half went to Algona, but the Bulldogs managed only one TD. Algona threatened three times during the third quarter, but couldn't dent Clarion's armor to score. The first drive went to Clarion's six . where the Cowboys held. Clarion couldn't ad- yance past its own 33 yard line during the entire 12 minutes. A short Cowboy march which went to the Algona 35 early in the fourth period died when Jim Cowan intercepted a pass on the Algona 20 and ran it out to the 20. The Bulldogs were off to the races. Meyer flipped to Kickbush for seven yards to get things going. Meyer's next throw fell harmlessly, but he carried for four and a first down on the 37. Another incomplete pass, followed by Cowan's five yard run and Meyer's five yard blast put the ball on the Algona 47. The Cowboys were penalized- five and Cowan romped through for 13 to put the ball on the Clarion 35. Cowan got five, Meyer seven and Dave Richardson two, putting the ball on the 21 Where it was second and eight to go. Meyer faded, saw Bob Jensen near the five and fired. A Clarion defender came in to intercept, tipped the ball in the air and Jensen grabbed it for a first down. Cowan bulled the final five yards for the TD and Meyer place- kicked the extra point to make it 19-7, with 8% minutes left to play. Clarion's Final 8cor« That was just enough 'time for Clarion to add its final six-pointer. Starting from their own 40, seven plays did the job. Wit/el got the touchdown with a twisting run for 39 yards as the buzzer sounded. Hisi pass to .Thompson for tnb extra point was good. Except for the final drive, Clarion was buffaloed by Algona in the last. half, as the, Bulldpgs pulled ,an about-face on defense. Offensively,, the team picked up in the final 24 minutes ulso, but didn't have the necessary punch to produce the long plays which would have paid off with touchdowns. Potential Algona pass receivers were troubled 1 with butter-fingers at times, but the biggest problem seemed to be blocking in the line. Meyer, as usual was the offen.- sive king-pin. He accounted .for 134 of Algona's total of 172 yards rushing and passing. Witzel averaged 9.4 yards a crack as he rolled for 160 yards on 17 tries during the night for .the Cowboys.
