Kepler in district court Tuesday when he pleaded guilty to county attorney's information charging lascivious acts with children. The court was advised by County Attorney James R. Brown that Barker has been under psychiatric treatment at St. Vincent's hospital in Sioux City for more than a month. He was arrested by a Cerro Gordo county deputy sheriff. Careless Driving Brings $100 Fine Russell Har'twell, Jr., 23, Nora Springs, was fined $100 and costs in municipal court Wednesday on a charge of careless driving. The charge placed after the auto Hartwell was driving Crashed into the rear of a Ruan transport truck at 6th and South Federal Monday night. Three of the 7 other Nora Springs youths who were riding with Hartwell were still in Park hospital Wednesday but all were reported in good condition. The Bluegills to Be Only Fish; No Hatchery Convert Eagle Lake to Duck Hunting The Clear Lake nursery pond will be operated this year to hatch and raise bluegills but the hatchery at the lake will not be used as a hatching unit next spring. And Eagle lake near Britt is being converted to a duck hunting lake. These and other facts were told to Stanley Haynes, president of the North Central Iowa Rod and Gun club, by Bruce Stiles, state conservation commissioner, in a specific query. Haynes made known the report at the club's meeting Tuesday night. Stiles said that while the hatchery will not operate as such, Iowa State college will continue to study and experiment at the lake and use the buildings as part of their research program. On 3-Year Cycle Under a system set up several years ago, it was decided to rotate stocking of game fish in the lake on a 3-year cycle. The first year there was to be no stocking at all; the 2nd, fry were stocked, and the 3rd, fingeriings were stocked. So in 1949 reproduction will be by the lake itself. "Stocking was an idea of one man. It had practically no background. The Iowa State college observers, by tests, can determine he relative number of fish and which is the best producer," Haynes noted. No details of cleaning or minor alterations for the pond were iven but it is assumed this is included in the program, Haynes re- "ated. Got 68,500 Pounds Carp In answer to the query on sein- ng at Clear Lake, Stiles issued he report that 23 days of seining n November produced fish in hese amounts: Buffalo, 1,070 rounds; carp, 68,500; quillback, 350; crappie, 687; walleye, 8,091; yellow bass, 9,950; silver bass, 412; northern pike, 115; bluegills, 70 bullheads, 8,261; catfish, 32; perch 1; suckers, 5; smallmouth bass, 12 and largemouth bass 107. The game fish are all returned :o the lake after seining. No seining is anticipated under .he ice this winter but another 1015-day period will be used in the spring. The Eagle lake project is progressing on schedule, Stiles' repor said. The draining is proceeding to completion and the lake will be completely refilled again nex spring and summer. It is to be developed primarily | as a duck hunter's lake but sight- feeding fish, bluegills, sunfish, perch and northern pike, will be stocked for the benefit of residents nearby. Start Work on Trap Work is starting now on the permanent steel fish trap at Ventura, the commissioner reported. No expected completion date was given. The Rod and Gun club adopted a resolution to urge the legislature to place a state bounty on all predators. This would include minor predators such as gophers as well as fox, coyotes, wolves, crows, and several types of hawks. Haynes also led a discussion on the proposed legislative program of the conservation commission and praised the anti-pollution bill. At present there is no anti-pollution law for lakes but only for rivers. The proposal clearly defines pollution, an indefinite word under the present statute, and changes the procedure for enforcement. It is proposed that a petition of 25 or more residents of the state could be the basis for an investigation with a hearing 1940 Chevrolet he was demolished. was driving Credit Union Declares 2 Per Cent Dividend at Annual Meeting .The Globe-Gazette credit union declared a 2 per cent dividend for its members at the group's annua meeting in the newsrdom Tuesday night. Reports of committees were heard and following adjournment the board of directors met and elected the following officers: L. A. (Jack) Whipple, president; Clifford Eggert, vice president; Luther Hodgins, treasurer, and Glenn Scott, secretary. THEY'LL FIND MORE DUCKS—Eagle lake, 2J/ 2 miles east and one mile north of Britt, is being drained. The report from the state conservation commission says it's to be refilled but made largely into a duck hunting lake. This photo of 2 hunters was taken at the duck season's opening, always an eventful day at Eagle lake. Factors Outside Farm Fences to Determine Income: Howe// to follow. Another point in the program would be to establish an advisory council on natural resources. It would be non-political and have an advisory function only. Mike Haaheim showed pictures he took last year in Norway for the evening's entertainment. The Rod and Gun plans a fox hunt Sunday, details of which will be announced later this week. Louis A. Page is chairman of the event. Factors outside the farmers'* own fences are likely to determine their financial welfare during the next few years, Herb Howell, Ames, extension economist and farm management specialist at Iowa State college, declared at the annual meeting of the Mason City Production Credit association Tuesday afternoon. Good farm management and efficient operation still will be important, Howell told the overflow crowd in the Hotel Hanford Wedgewood room. However, our relations with Russia and foreign spending are likely to determine farm market prices, he said. Short fed cattle on .a big corn crop never have made money and are not likely to do so this spring, Howell declared, but cattle for later market and spring pigs both look profitable. Farmers are not likely to lose any money holding corn either, he added. Get Modern Kitchen He advised farm wives to in- rease the family's living standard now and try to achieve better, modern homes while farm income s good. "You'll still be able to en- oy a modern kitchen when prices are lower," he suggested. Sgt. and Mrs. Leo Allstot and heir exhibition of pistol marks- nanship were very well received sy the crowd. This is the 15th year of the association, Secretary C. H. McDonough noted in his report. Since its organization in 1934 it has made 3,130 loans totaling $14,440,000 with only $2,060 in losses. There are 682 members now in Winne- jago, Hancock, Howard, Floyd, Worth, Cerro Gordo, Mitchell and Tranklin counties. They hold 5129,385 worth of stock plus $82,482 in reserves from earnings. Loaned $2,750,000 The government owned $170,000 worth of stock in the association from 1943 to 1945, McDonough pointed out. This has been reduced low to $5,000 which the association could pay off at will. The association loaned $2,750,000 in 1948, the secretary reported, calling attention to the fact that this money was spent locally and was of some importance in the economic life of the community. Credit is like fire, H. W. Mitchell, secretary of the Production Credit Corp., Omaha, warned the North Iowa members, it must be controlled and used wisely. Two directors, Ray Dunkelberg, Mason City, and Ernest Haugen, Osage, were re-elected for 3 year terms. The board will meet in February to elect officers. Long Time to Pay Worcester, Mass., (U.RX—It'll take Raymond Aldrich 16 years to pay for a trip he took to Florida and Georgia with lodge funds.

Production of Food Climbs to Pre-War Levels Washington, (U.R)—World food production finally has climbed back to pre-war levels with a 6 per cent increase during 1948, the agriculture department reported Wednesday. But per capita consumption still is lagging behind pre-war totals the department said in its annua" report on the world food situation The principal reason is that the world's population has increased 10 per cent since before the war Because production hasn'1 caught up with demand, the U. S taxpayer continues to pick up a big world food check. In the last 9 months, it has totaled close to $1,500,000.000, the report said. In western Europe, where the U. S. food bill is biggest, the lag between production and consumption has been offset partly by more efficient use of bread grains for flour and by diversion of some ivestock feed directly to Human consumption, the department said Compared with pre-war, the de partment added, world wheat pro duction in 1948 was up 4 per cent rice was down 2 per cent, suga up 8 per cent, potatoes up 5 pe cent and most fruits were nea pre-war levels.
