L. Spear, veterinarian at Iowa State College. Preventutive vaccination, Spear says, has fallen off until only about 30 percent of Iowa's swine herds are protected against cholera. This means thai the disease might spread faster than susceptible hogs could be vaccinated. » * » Here's a simple 3 point plan for controlling flies on livestock— 1. Clean out manure and fill up wet holes with dirt. 2. Put the following mixture in or on your back rubber—1 part 25% methoxychlor to 4 parts of No. 2 fuel oil. Repeat every 10 days to 2 weeks. 3. Mix up Malathion, according to directions on container, and spray barns, sheds, alley ways. etc. Not to be sprayed on animals, but to be used as a residual spray on surfaces where flies congregate.

Hall BRANDT BUICK Algona, Iowa Soil Bank Is Explained By County ASC Farmers Offered 4 Corn Raising Plans For 1956 Secretary of Agriculture, Ezra T. Benson, made a quick trek through Iowa several days ago, and thoughts immediately turned to information on the newly enacted soil bank plan. Heretofore, little information hns been available on the set-up, but the ASC's office manager, Virgil Rohlf. came up with the following report recently. As the first step in putting the new farm law into effect, every farm haying a corn acreage allotment will also have a corn soil bank base acreage. The corn soil bank base acreage will bo 1.7.8 percent greater than the oorn acreage allotment fixed earlier this year. The corn soil bank base acreages are now being computed for individual farms by the ASC office here. Four Plans Individual farmers may follow ony one of four possible plans of corn raising operations in the preFent crop year. They are: 1. He may comply with the corn acreage allotment fixed for his farm earlier in the year and not participate in the soil bank. Under this plan he will be eligible for the $1.50 national average support rate but he will not earn a soil bank payment. 2. He may raise corn on 85 per cent of his corn soil bank base acreage and put an amount of his cropland equal to 15 percent of his corn base acreage into the soil bank acreage reserve. Ha cannot harvest any crop, cut hay or graze this soil bank land in 1956. Under this plan, he will be eligible for the-national average support rate of $1.50 per bushel on his 1956 corn and will also earn an acreage reserve soil bank payment. 3. He may put his full corn base acreage into corn and put an acreage of his cropland equal to 15 percent of his corn base acreage into the conservation reserve. This conservation reserve land will be covered by a contract with i'the,' government running from 3 to 15 years, depending on the type o ( f conservation measures applied to the land. He cannot harvest a crop, cut hay on, or graze the con-' servtion reserve land during the life of the contract. Under this plan, the farmer will be eligible for the national average support rate of $1.50 per bushel for his 1956 corn. He will also receive an annual rental for the conservation reserve land at a national average rate of around $10 pet- acre. The rental rates applicable to Iowa will be announced as soon as they can be determined. 4. He may decide to comply neither with his corn acreage allotment nor the provisions oil the soil bank- Under this plan he will be eligible only for the noncompliance support rate on his 1956 corn, which has been fixed at a national average of $1.25 per bushel, and he will not receive a soil bank payment. Things To Consider In considering the plans, he should keep in mind that compliance with certain production adjustment requirements will qualify him for price, support on 1956 corn at a national average rato of $1.50 per bushel, and that if such requirements are not met the support rate on his 1956 corn will be at a national average rate of $1.25 per bushel. He should also keep in mind that for compliance with soil bank provisions for corn he will earn a soil bank payment in addition to qualifying for the higher price support on his harvested corn. For the purposa of computing corn acreage reserve payments at a national average rate of 90 cents per bushel, per-acre corn yield factors for the idle land will be fixed as soon as possible. It has been announced that the yield figures to be used in computing corn acreage reserve payments will reflect net income had the idle land, been planted to corn under average conditions. Variations Allowed In order to qualify for the higher corn support rate and to participate in the soil banK in 195G, farmers will be permitted to clip or plow under plantings already made up to a certain time. The deadline date for getting into compliance under the soil bank plans will be announced as soon as it is fixed. In announcing the general rules for 1956, the ASC advised fanners not to make any adjustment in planted crops in anticipation of soil bank participation until they have entered an agreement with their county ASC committee and know exactly what adjustment is required. It was also pointed out that plans are beinff made to make complete information available soon to every farmer who so desires it. It was emphasized that farmers should make it a point to b« on the alert for announcements ol details of the new program. IF IT'S NEWS - WU WAS? IT
