Foreign demand, however, offers little promise. With acre- ages expanding and hog pro^- duction increasing, an export surplus will probably again be with us in a year or so. The outlook for 1936 is for small increases in property taxes in most counties. More Money For Home Although Iowa farm incomes have increased sharply in the last 2 years, most of the increase has gone into capital replacements such as tools, machinery, paint, and for back interest and taxes. But during'the last half of 1936 farm family living may receive a somewhat larger relative share of farm income than in the last 2 years. Increased expenditures by farm families will probably be mostly in the form of new conveniences, automobile expenses and other similar mites. Hogs "Look Good" Hog prices are expected to average higher for the marketing year 1935-36 than for the 1934-35. The last half of the marketing year will probably average lower. A less-than-seasonal rise is in prospect in February and March—and the summer rise wll be small. Hog production, after declining for 2 years, is now on the up trend again and increases are in prospect for both 1936 and 1937. The 1935 sring pig crop was later than usual and there was an unusually large proportion of summer pigs. This has tended to push the peak in market- ings from the spring crop farther into the winter than usual. The seasonal rise to marketings began much later than average this fall. Still another factor tending to make the bulk of hog marketings later than usual is the favorable corn-hog ratio, causing hogs to be marketed at heavier weights. This outlook in the current marketing year indicates less than the usual seasonal rise in hog prices from January to April and more than the usual seasonal decline after April. One of the prime factors in 1936 hog prices will be the consumer buying power, which is expected to increase and result in a stronger demand, which will offset in part the larger marketings of hogs after the first of the year. Larger supplies of cattle—looked for in the first 5 months of 1936—will also absorb some of the demand for meats and restrict hog prices. Beef to Be Lower Fat cattle prices will probably decline more than seasonally from January to June, in view of the large numbers on feed. A seasonal advance in late summer and Common fall and is anticipated, medium cattle will probably average relatively higher than the better grades. Indications are that there will be a large increase in cattle feeding during the fall and winter season this year. The high moisture content of the corn ,rop encourages feeding corn .hat would ordinarily be sold as :ash grain. Dairymen Do Better Butter prices will remain good n 1936, according to present estimates', since consumer demand will probably be stronger and production slightly less than in 1935 in the northwestern Corn Belt, where most of it is produced. The Iowa dairy producer approaches 1936 with favorable ratio between feed and butterfat prices. Eggs—Lambs—Horses A large expansion in egg production is expected in the first half of 1936 with lower prices during the first period. The poultry expansion will react on chicken prices later in the year, depending on business conditions and the extent of the drop in eggs. In the early part of 1936, the outlook for fat lambs is for rising prices. Supplies of lamb, up to May 1936 are expected to be smaller than for severa" fears. With normal weather ondltions, the lamb crop in the torn Belt states will probably be larger in 1936 than in 1935. amb prices in 1936 will probably follow about the normal trend. The continued increase in colt production which began in 1933 will probably terminate the ong down-trend in horse and mule numbers in 1936 . The number of horses and mules of working age, however, will con- ;inue to decrease for the next few years. During this period work stock will probably continue relatively high priced, depending upon future colt production and the extent of the increase in tractors. Grain Acreage Stable Feed grain production was much larger in 1936 than in 1934 and supplies per animal unit are about average. Hay supplies from the 1935 crop are larger than usual per hay-consuming animal. Average of feed gains in 1936 s expected to be about the same as it was in 1935. Corn acreage will probably be Increased slightly and oats and barley will be about the same as last year. Grain sorglinm acreage will probably be somewhat less than in 1935. The increase in grain consuming livestock will probably be as great or greater than this expansion n grain production. Soybeans are expected to de:line slightly in acreage for the :ountry as a whole In 1936, un- ess unfavorable corn planting weather should result in an extensive use of them as an emergency crop. Iowa likewise Is expected to show a decline In acrage in 1936. If average yields of wheat are harvested on the prospective acreage to be planted in 1936, the crop will be larger than Is needed for domestic consumption. This would depress prices to a point where exports would be made. War developments will be extremely important in determining wheat prices. i m , Wouldn't Be Thrilled? 1 News—The happiest and idest children in Adel last day were Laura and Phillips, daughters of and Mrs. J.

Their father, Capt. "Fritz" Phillips, is an army flyer and for about two years has been associated with Capb. Stevens in the experimental work. He piloted the army plane which was used for photographic purposes after the balloon ascended and was on his way back to Wright Field Wednesday morning. Leaving Omaha, he changed his route slightly to fly over Adel. He picked out the Lindeman home and almost knocked the chimney off in an effort to attract attention. The roar of the motors brought the family into the yard and on the next bank and circle Laura and Fritaie were really thrilled to see their daddy waving at them Blankets |0, P.ARNOLD eral Director and | Licensed Embalmer Lenox, Iow» J, E BARBER neral Director and I Licensed Embalmer Lenox, Iowa (AMES R.

The original sum of six hundred dollars was deposited by a John L. Truax, who gave his birthplace as Shenandoah, and his address as Worcester, Mass., in 1909, after a horse race in Saugus. Interest accumulated until the sum reached the present amount. Another John J. Truax of Worcester, Mass, has tried to claim the money but his birthplace is Stanbridge p. Q., and the original deposT slip showed Shenandoah as th< birthplace of the depositor, so member at Iowa State College, 'he scarcity and high prices of ood draft animals will probably continue for several years more, he believes. Since January, 1934, the number of foals dropped has in- jreased, but horse raising is a ong-time industry, and these colts will not be ready for farm- work for 3 or 4 years yet, Caine points out. Low horse prices which pro- vailed for many years, together with the a|3Ute feed Shortage for the past 2 years, curtailed the production to the point where it is now almost impossible to get animals heavy enough to meet the demands of farmers. The present high price of draft horses will no doubt further stimulate breeding, Caine says, but it will be several years yet before the supply reaches the point where it can satisfy the demand. Prices of farm horses are likely to advance even higher than they are now and won't be reduced; until the xtreme shortage is made up, Jaine believes.

Tried and True- Before a man can qualify to be a private in an army, he must be able to pass some rigid tests. Many men are not accepted. They cannot qualify. Before those who are taken on trial can be promoted, they must have proven their merits. In examining recruits for aviation and other specialzied forms of service, most thorough and exacting tests are required. Some of those who have tried have proven true. These principles apply to advertising. Tests are made. Some have tried mimeographed circulars and found them fallen by the wayside. Others have tried folders. These go to the wastebasket. Others have proven that the newspaper—an invited guest in the home—is given most reader consideration. STILL OTHERS have tried and found true a specialized combination of direct mail and newspaper advertising.
