The Ajgona Upper Pea Koines, Algona, Iowa, May 31,1938 CASTOR BEANS FAIL TO STOP HOPPERATTACK Make Potent Castor Oil But No Bother to Insects Girls Take Normal Training Exam Here Normal training examinations were conducted last Thursday and Friday, May 19 and 20, for 15 local high school students who have been taking the course.

All attend high school lure. ' AMERICAN LEGION Auxiliary members and junior assistants staged the annual pre-Memorlal Day sale of poppies on Algona streets Saturday. Popples are made by disabled veterans, and they are paid for their work. Any balance is kept In the local treasury. Castor bean plants may be valuable for the production of castor oil, but they hold little promise as a means of controlling grasshoppers, in spite of assertions to the contrary, declares A. L. Brown, county agricultural agent. Press releases during the past week have given rise to the belief that the simple and easy way to control 'hoppers is to plant a patch of castor beans. Then, the story goes, the 'hoppers will swarm in on the castor beans, take on a bl? feed, and shortly turn up their toes in their death agony. Experiments conducted at Iowa State College by Louts A. Spain, experiment station entomologist, shroud this idea with a big question mark. Using eight varieties of castor beans in his tests, Spain founds 1. That grasshoppers don't care two whoops about castor bean plants If corn, wheat oats or barley are available. 2. That grasshoppers reared In small cages with a crop plant like oats and a castor bean plant available at all times, develop In a normal manner and are not affected by the presence of the castor bean plant 3. That If grasshoppers are given the choice between eating castor bean plants and starving, they will eat a little, become sluggish and eventually die, but they won't die as quickly as those given no food whatsoever. If farmers have planted castor* beans, they should take precautions so that children and farm animals do not eat the beans. They contain a deadly poison known as "rlc- in" and a single bean has proved fatal to a small child. A few beans will kill a horse. Poison bran bait still holds top rank as the most effective means of controlling grasshoppers. ARMSTRONG NEWS Mrs. Bridget Blum of Minneapolis visited relatives and friends here for a few weeks. Curl's Halverson and Arnold Lamere o,' Blue Earth, Minn, and Ardeila Hklverson of Fairmont, Minn., «pent Sunday, May 15th at the Carl Halverson home.

Over at Lost Island to a flock of pelicans. So say reliable men who have fished there aft'r closing their business house doors for the day. They swear by it. Others more familiar with nature, but not quite so favorable with the truth, declare the birds to be brandt Now to form an opinion—from the truthful who don't know or from those who know and are natural prevaricators. * * • Little Master Briggs, who fell from a tractor breaking an arm didn't report the matter home. And when admonished for it he replied with tears in his eyes, "I didn't know t was broke, I thought it was only bent" ' • * * Louie Griffith^ who as a boy, worked In the old Iowa State bank, ravels through Algona about every wo weeks. He tells one on his boss, although he found It to be accurate personally, too. Ordering a glass of cold water the morning after the boss said, for Louie's sake, also, "The fellow who invented that certainly had an idea." i Ladles, If you most remove your diamonds, take them off in places where you know they will be safe. Dutch Lorenz found a diamond ring, not the one he lost on the golf course, on the window In the rest room at his service station. A little afterwards a woman called from Mason City, reporting leaving a ring there while washing her hands. She became the owner again, a happy lady but a happier Dutch who tells you that is a part of the service at his place. Last night a group of men sat wondering and thinking and arguing on juot what went wrong with the Literary Digest poll on the last general election. While they are staunch Republicans and loud in their praise of it they can't understand yet after the returns have been in for months past. Neither could that fellow at Spencer. Perhaps the newspapers should print the last national election results again, not to rub It in but to enlighten the doubtful. Watch Dick Post. A barber wants him to be the first in town to wear one of those permanent Christy waves everyone has been reading about. Not only would Dick be the first to have one, the barber would be the first locally to give one and as an Inducement he has dropped his price from seven-fifty to Just -a free one for the opportunity to practice. Strings? Dick must show It to his friends. • • * At Cut's Billiards Is a new broom. One not quite as wide as the parlor, but stretching out In that direction. Carl was asked who was going to push it At that moment son Leo came into view and Carl "Here comes the big push now. And so a new nickname was born Big Push Leo, although he object, strenuously at times. However, it i here to stay. • * * Here we are, In the bread baske of the world, In a free and demo cratic country or any other larg descriptive words one can hitch up Ninety thousand in Chicago, only one city mind you, off the relie roll, out of work, nothing to look forward to. The governor of 111 Inois, Homer, by name, says he'l see that they don't starve. Think o it A great man even having to mention words to or about his people relating to starving. Just when are folks In this territory going to awaken and see the lights? Imagine conditions, laugh it off? If your letter or card doesn't reach you on time it is not Ray Ladendorfs error. He has finished a test of a year at throwing mall and passed on one hundred per cent on some twelve thousand Iowa post- ifflces. Reward, a hundred merits. Jnly once before has such accuracy >een attained in the local post office and that by Miss Helen Dlngley when she was employed by Uncle Sam. Oh, for the life of a farmer... In _ few months a tractor will be on he market equipped much like a nodern car. One of the big manu- acturing plants Is now assembling hem with streamlined bodies, radio, muffler, steering wheel, self- starter, rubber tires, cushioned seat, etc. Tis coming true, a realization of what John Erpeldlng told us; there is no hard work on a farm, a fellow In town works much harder than one on a farm. John, you're right, maybe. The only dark spot on the big white porch at the Cleve Stewart home is a robin and its nest resting In plain view from the street. Commenting on the huge dust storm Saturday when all north Iowa was resting In mud, Vic Steil suggests seeing one's congressman about placing a higher tariff wall to keep out Canadian dust Not a bad idea In this day when the present administration spends on more wierd fantasies. •„ * • Many small towns throughout the state are going modern in the line of telephones nosing right past cities of this size by putting in the dial systems. If there is any community, large or small, which gets better service from Its telephone arrangement than Algona it will need more than one dial system. Tractors, horses and men spotted the fields in all directions Sunday as farmers toiled hard in an effort to catch up with late corn planting. When there is work to be done the one day of rest per week comes like the catch as catch can style. Farm Allotments Control Payment* To AAA Farmers Kossuth County farmers who are deciding on whether or not to take part in the 1938 AAA Farm Program should remember that payments will be made upon the number of acres in their allotments, and not upon any number of acres of reduction from previous average plantings, County Agent A. L. Brown points out. Apparently a few farmers think their payments will be figured on the difference between their allotments and some past average, )ut this is wrong. The corn, wheat, and general soil depleting payments will be made upon every acre in the illotment for the farm, provided at east 80 per cent of the allotment is ilanted. The corn payment, for instance, s 10 cents per bushel upon the normal yield for the farm for the acreage In the corn allotment. If a farm has a 40 acre allotment for 938 and a normal yield of 40 bushals o the acre, the corn payment for he farm will be $160. The allotments are based upon past acreage on the farm and sound soil man igement, but the payments are 'tased only upon the allotments. On a farm that had a past average corn acreage of 60 acres, a 40 icre 'corn allotment would amount o a 10-acre reduction. If the normal yield were 40 bushels per acre, he payment of 10 cents per bushel would amount to $4 per acre for BANKERS LIFE FARM LOANS Low rate, leng term funds from an Iowa Company. See me for prompt closing, <io Commission. EDWARD CAPESIUS Helse Bldg. Algona, Iowa 1-tf each of the 40 acres In the allot ment—a corn payment of $160.
