Since 1848, aldrln has protected millions ol acres of farmland . .. here again, aldrln makes the difference. Even in a hot, dry season— 3 Id Pill -treated rows yield % more corn than untreated rows RESULTS gathered by Shell Chemical's field research show, again and again, that you can get greater yields of top quality corn by treating your soil with aldrin Like Mr. Franklin Rodgers, thousands of growers throughout the corn belt are controlling major soil insects with powerful aldrin. Aldrin wipes out rootworm, wireworm, seed corn maggot, and other damaging soil pests for the entire growing season. And aldrin is economical. Mere ounces of actual aldrin per acre give an effective, fast kill. Apply aldrin as spray or granules; or apply it mixed with fertilizer. Whichever method of application you prefer, aldrin gives you top-notch control. Aldrin is available under well-known brand names from your insecticide dealer. Or your local fertilizer dealer can supply you with aldrin-fertilizer mixtures. Ihey'll be glad to give you further information on aldrin and its application. See them today. Mr and Mrs Gail Towne, pictured above, a pair of Algona's most famous anglers, returned from a fishing sojourn at Venice, Fla., Mar. 19, full of fish stories that proved 16 be true. . . 'i ' They.'are shown in the above photo holding a 16 Ib. 4 oz. Robola, more commonly known as snook, caught by Mrs Towne. This was - the largest, caught at Snook HaVen Resort, seven miles from Venice, for the past four years. Venice is located 30 miles north of Fort Myers. Mr and Mrs Towne, Who have made many trips to Florida in search of fish, headed south January 23, and after arriving at Snook Havari Resort, set. all sorts of records in connection with snook fishing. Not a day went by that the Townes didn't catch more of the prized snook (which, according to Gail "taste better than Walleye") lhan anyone else in the entire area.- Most of their fishing was done from 4 p.m. on, as it was easier to locate the fish and much cooler in the boat. Heavy gut leaders were used at first, but after losing some plugs' and fish, a switch was made to steel, which had to be changed repeatedly due to the violent cutting aciion of the gills of the snook. For bait, the Townes used Heddon Tadpollys. Gail notified the company of Iheir success and received, by return_mail. four plugs free and a note stating the company hacfno "idea snook could be lured wilh their Tadpollys. U. S. Representative Engels, of Michigan, went out with Gail and caught the first snook he had gotten in four years. The representative no doubt would be glad to hire Gail as a guide the next lime he makes a trek lo Florida. The Townes feted many guests several times lo fish dinners, featuring heaping platters of sleaked snook which was absolutely boneless. Their camp was located in a wild and woolly neighborhood which is surrounded by a 46,000 acre tracl owned by one family which uses it;for grazing thousands of cattle. The area is kepi in ils primitive state and alligators and buzzards are numerous. :j When asked aboul mlligalors, Gail had this to offer — "They're as afraid of you as- you are of them." He found one ;while there-that became sort of a distant pet. Gail approached the big animal/T which laid in the same spot each day, regularly, and by the time Ihe Townes were ready for the Irip home, he could-.gel within 12 feel of it before it switched ils tail and slid into the rivar. Might be a good thing Ihe Townes came home when they did — the alligator might have gotten real friendly.

Here are the results that Mr. Franklin Rodgers, Corso, Mo., got when he treated wilh aldrin: "I'll get about \i to Jj more shelled corn from the fic-ki treated with aldrin. Aldrin- treated rows were more uniform, belter filled and lucre were fewer nubbins."
