J SHELL CHIMICAL\_ •Another Important flarm Field Report Sine* 1048, aldrln has protected millions ol •er«« of farmland ... h«r« again, aldrln makes the difference. Even In a hot, dry season — in -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 ap^ply 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. They'll be glad to give you further information on aldrin and its application. See them today. Here are the results that Mr. Franklin Rodgers, Corse, Mo., got whenhe treated with aldrin: "I'll get about J* to Yi more shelled corn from the field treated with aldrin. Aldrin- treated rows were more uniform, better filled and there were fewer nubbins." SHELL. CHEMICAL CORPORATION AGRICULTURAL CHEMICAL. SALES DIVISION 1231 Locust Street, St. Louis 3, Missouri ALGONA FLOUR & FEED CO. SO. PHIUIPS ST. PHONE 257 Algona Couple Hit Jackpot In Florida Fishing Waters 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 to be true. They are shown in the above photo holding a 16 Ib. 4 oz. Robola, more commonly known as snook, caught by Mrs Towne. This wa«>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 soulh January 23, and after arriving at Snook Haven Resort, set all sorts ot records in connection with snook fishing. Not a day went by that the Tpwnes didn't catch more of the orized snook (which, accordina to Gail "taste better lhan Walleye") lhan anyone else in "the entire area. Most of their fishing was done from 4 p.m. on, as it was easier 10 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 io be changed repeatedly due to the violent cutting action of the gills of the snook. For bail, the Townes used Heddon Tadpollys. Gail notified the company of their success and received, by return mail, four plugs free and a note staling the company had no idea snook could be lured with 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 time he makes a trek io Florida. The Townes feted many guests several limes io fish dinners, featuring heaping plaiters 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 tract owned by one family which uses il for grazing thousands of cattle. The area is kept in its primitive slate and alligators and buizards are numerous. • •; •, When asked about alligators, Gail had this lo offer — "They're as afraid of you .as you-are of them." He found on* while there thai became < sort of a distant pel. Gail approached the big animal, which laid in the same spot each day, regularly, ajid by lh« lime the Townes were ready for the trip home, he could gel within 12 feel of it before 11 switched its tail and slid into the river. Might be a good thing the Townes came home when they did — the alligator might have gotten real friendly. Mr and Mrs Raymond Gilbert had Mr and Mrs John Claude as dinner guests Friday evening.

Few people realize that they turn on their hot water tap one hundred and forty limes a day. It takes a lot of hot, hot water to keep ourselves and our homes sparkling clean. Literally millions' of homes have added automatic appliances in recent years. Experts tell Ais 'hat the overall efficiency of these numerous labor saving devices depends upon an adequate 'imply of hot water. Women are finding that they use hotter water and more of it each time they add a new appli- ifnce. A recent survey conducted '••v the gas industry shows that 59 percent of today's homemakers •ire washing two, three and even four times a week. The primary reason women give for washing oftener is the convenience of be- ng able to wash and dry an entire load in one operation, using the wonderful gas washer-dryer, two-in'one, appliance. No Wealher Worries And the housewife no longer has to worry about the weather. She can wash and dry her clothes any time she chooses. She merely places the laundry in her duomatic gas washer-dryer, sets the dials,- and within one hour her laundry is washed and dried and ready to be folded and put away. In addition to their convenience, automatic gas washers and dryers offer many other advantages, such as economy of operation,- speed and dependability. The wonderful new detergents, specially and scientifically made for automalic washers, mean cleaner, longer-wearing clothing for every member of the family. One such advanced detergent, just placed on the market, produces exactly the right amount of suds to make your machine work better, longer, and more ••economically. Research sponsored by Ihe ^merican Gas Association has turned up many ideas aboul hot water temperatures, too, which •.Drove that the holler the water the better the job. Four Basic Steps In laundering, best results are obtained when you remember these points: use water* that is hot enough ,a soap or detergent •aerially made for automatic washers, a bleach when necessa- rv, and a properly sorted load. Failure to get clothes, clean is generally caused by not following these basic steps to good home laundering, rather than by poor washing action in the machine itself. There are so many, many uses for hoi water when you're planning Ihe household chores lo ,be done, that it isn't much fun to have to worry constantly whether there's enough hot water to help make the job easier, Any utility company or reliable appliance dealer will tell you that an automatic gas waler healer heats water taster and keeps it hot. That's because gas is such a quick- heating fuel. You'll al»o find that gas water heaters are less expensive too. Over and above the size of the tank is the "B. T, U, input." B. T.U. means British Thermal Unfit and is a method of measuring heat. B.T.U. input for a water heater is Ihe amount of heat nle- *essary lo heal Ihe whaler quickly. Your utility company or 'appliance dealer can explain to 'you the importance of having enough controlled heat for your automatic gas water heater.
