"This' coupled with substitutes, changed eating labits and increased competition rom other meats, fish and poultry have found the pork industry iving ground to our competition. Grade Conscious Plager said hog producers must become hog-grade minded. He pointed<'-oytnhat' tor years" many of the things farmers produce— such as cattle, corn and cream— have been sold on grade. But the producer has been reluctant to have his hogs sorted in the past. "Recent hog prices, meat-type hog education along with the drop n the per capita, consumption of pork have made the producer more grade conscious than ever before." Plager said. *. The lowan said in years past we raised two types of hogs — ard and bacon — and neither has been right. He said many of the wrong kind of hogs have lad the meat-type label placed on them and this was regrettable. "This has retarded and discouraged producers because many of these so-called meat-type hogs have been poor-doers. Actually they were only long, narrow, slim, poorly-muscled hogs — not meat-type — and with little resistance to disease." he said. Plager said that many tests show that the meat-type hog can be produced cheaper than other kinds since the better-doing hogs show better feed conversion and reach market weight and finish at an earlier age. The lowan urged packers to train hog buyers to do a better job of hog buying and that both parties—buyer and farmer producer—must be able to recognize the difference in hogs in a combined effort to get more high quality pork. / Few Qualify "To date," Plager said, "only a small percentage of the hogs coming to town qualify as meat- type hogs. Many more, would qualify if they were sold with the right amount of finish and at the proper weight. Fat hogs, selling for nearly or at the same price, will not improve pork quality." Plager also criticized some processing methods. He said "leaving too much fat on loins, hams or other cuts, cheap fillers and excess fats to cheapen sausages will only eliminate pork customers, and the product, too." He said excess water and gelatin will have tiio saone effect on customers. (Ti)c tippet jtloincs AIGONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, MAY 5, 1955 VOL 92 - NO.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the friendships and the cordial relations which have existed (Turing those years, and the fine cooperation which I have received from township and county officers and participating farmers in the programs. • I could not retire from my job as office manage* of the A. S. C. without telling you and letting you know that this has been most deeply appreciated by myself. Thank you all. HERMAN J. STUDER We're living in a mechanical age, and Jud St. John, local Railway 'Express agent, will vouch for that fact. He now has an automatic telephone answerer at the express .office in the C. & N.W. depot here. He is pictured above with his private telephone secretary in operation. .Here's how it works. '. , When he has to leave the office, being the only employee, he has had nobody available to answer the phone. Now when he leaves, he switches on a gadget, and anyone calling is informed by a tape recording to wait until three bells ring, then stale message for the expressman or leave their phone number. When Jud returns', he can tell^by a dial how many calls he has had. Then he switches the machine to a "play, back" position, and every message is repeated to him thai came in during his absence. Most one man agencie* in the state now have the same device, Jud says. Each incoming call is limited to 30 seconds. "Just so they don't figure out a gadget'to eliminate the express agent ..." said Jud. Incidentally, Jud also was recently awarded a .pin by the company for completing nine years without a driving mishap of any kind. (Upper Des Moines flashfoto). ' Mrs Millen.
