DOERNING, below, is modeling a lovely creation from GRAHAM'S. It is completely washable, wrinkle shed, of gingham check.

I If You Have The Lucky License Number 9 BRADLEY BROS. [ SEE US NOW ! More Cattle Get Axe Than 1955 Record Shows Francis A. Kutish, Iowa State College farm economist, reports that cattle slaughter has been running well ahead of a year ago. The big increase during the first three months of 1956 over 1953 was a 23 percent boost in steer slaughter. Heifer slaughter wa* up 4 percent, but the cow kill dropped 8 percent. Cattle feeders, according to Kutish, began the year with 14 percent more steers that were a year old or older than they did in 1955. The total number of cattle on feed on Jan. 1, 1956 was only 1 percent greater than a year earlier, but the cattle weighing over 900 pounds made up 27 percent of this total, compared with 22 percent the previous year. The result of this increased carry over of older steers has been a sharp boost in the number of prime and choice steers sold for slaughter in the major cattle markets. Even though we were a little short of choice and prime steers last winter, receipts this year are up sharply. Good grade steer receipts so far this year are considerably smaller than last year. Thus the price spread between good and prime steers in early April was about $2 narrower than a year earlier. It is now in line with the price spread of last year at this time. Feeder steer shipments into the corn belt for the first three months of 1956 were 6 percent less than 1955 shipments. The margin between good and choice 500-800 pound steers at Omaha, and 900 - 1,000 pound prime and choice cattle at Chicago during April was about 90 cents better than March, according to Kutish. The fat cattle market was picked up a little more than the feeder markets, which are a little lower. In recent weeks, Kutish has observed a pick-up in the movement of heavier feeder cattle into feedlots. But the shipments of these heavies still are only about half the very large rate of a year ago. Summarizing the present marketing trends which indicate smaller supplies of feed steers,. Kutish says that we can expect marketings in the coming months to be smaller than the heavy spring and summer marketings of a year earlier.
