Chemical Weed War to Continue on Iowa Crops in '49 Former Goodell Resident Dies Earl Clark, 60, Once Worked on Newspaper Goodell—Earl Clark, GO, former local newspaperman and at one time employed in the postoffice here, died at Charles City Tuesday morning following a long illness. Mr. Clark was born at Goodell Feb. 20, 1888, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Clark. He grew to manhood here and later worked in various Iowa towns in the newspaper business. For several years he had lived at Charles City and was employed at the Oliver plant until his health failed 2 years ago. Surviving are the widow, 2 sons, Robert, of Charles City, and Gerald of Hollywood, Cal., 2 brothers, Ray, who is clerk in a hotel at Spencer and his twin, Eric, who is assistant manager of the Surf at Clear Lake.

Hospital at Decorah Has Active Year Decorah—Decorah hospital owes ; j its ability to continue at a high rate of efficiency during the past year to the co-operation of the Winneshiek County Graduate Nurses' association and help from Luther college students, according to Miss Nellie McLaren, hospital superintendent. Her annual report of Dec. 1 reveals 2,065 patients were given 19,121 days of hospital care during the year. Included in these figures were 448 babies born and 581 surgical operations. In addition, 9,035 laboratory tests were completed, equal to nearly 28 each day, or more than one every 15 minutes over an 8-hour day. The expenses for 10 months exceeded the entire 1947 expense, and caused an operational cost per patient of $7.73 per day against $6.35 for 1947. A notable addition to the equipment was an electricardiograph at a cost of $896. Trial Tests in '48 Proved OK 12 Million Acres of State Crops Sprayed H. B.

Lester Holmes, who has been in Germany with the army air corps, has arrived home from overseas, where he has been flying supplies to Germany. His wife and 2 children have been at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charlie Otto, north of Nashua. Lt. Holmes, who is the son of Mr. and Mrs. LeGrand Holmes of the Colwell vicinity will also make the acquaintance of his 19. new infant son born Dec. 3 Changes in Farm Income Tax Returns Ames—Three major changes in the 1948 income tax rules will affect Iowa farm families, according to H. B. Howell, farm economist at Iowa State college. The new income tax law reduces individual income taxes through percentage reductions and through increased exemptions. It also permits husbands and wives to divide their combined income equally for filing joint tax returns. However, the new legislation, the revenue act of 1948, does not change, in any way, the method of computing net profits, Howell points out. Dividing incomes equally gives farmers and their wives a chance to compute the amount of tax due at lower surtax rates. The divided income may be used only by persons filing joint returns. He thinks that joint returns are usually best Ames—Chemicals were used extensively to control Iowa's weeds this year, according to E. P. Sylvester of Iowa State college, in a statement Wednesday. A conservative estimate indicates that one million acres of corn and 500,000 acres of oats and ilax were sprayed. Sylvester predicts that even more interest will be shown in chemical weed con- • trol in 1949. Pre-emergence spraying, where 2,4-D is applied to the soil before the crop appears above ground, will be recommended only on a trial basis again in 1949. More research is needed before specialists can recommend it generally to farmers. Trials conducted in corn, flax and oats at Kanawha, Crystal Lake and Ames showed that spraying gave good results in 1948 almost without exceptions when properly applied. The tests also showed that some injury to crops can be caused by overdosing. Where 2,4-D injured crops in 1948, Sylvester says it was not applied properly, or was applied in too heavy doses. Sylvester also pointed out that one or 2 new weed-killing chemicals will be available to fanners in small quantities in 1949. One of those is 2,4,5-T which is closely related to 2,4-D in chemical makeup. For most uses it has no advantage over 2,4-D. However, in controlling certain types of brush it is superior to 2,4-D, Sylvester says. It may be used alone as a spray solution, but there is evidence that if it is used in combination with 2,4-D, better kills on some brush will result. Specific recommendations are being formulated now 'for using chemicals to control specific weeds in specific crops. Sylvester indi- E. P.

Howell reminds farmers whose business year starts Jan. 1, that hey have until Jan. 15 to file heir returns or an estimate of the ax to be paid. The amount of the estimate must be paid by Jan. 15, f that method of filing is used. Two copies of all of the forms needed may be obtained at a post- office or bank or from the collec- .or of internal revenue. One copy s for the taxpayer to keep for his records, and it's good business to keep a copy of all returns filed, Howell says. 2 Charles City Bank Officials to Retire Charles City — Two executive officers of the Commercial Trust and Saving bank Tuesday announced their plans for retirement at the end of the year.

The goal is better-light-for-better- sight in the schoolroom and at the study desk. Insufficient lighting is one of the chief causes of eyestrain, and many children have their first eyestrain experience during early school years. Suffkient light for study can't cure eye defects, but a small investment in lighting is cheaper than risking damage to precious eyesight. At the study desk, as everywhere else, adequate light permits coordination of the eyes with the seeing job to be done. Here are a few suggestions of proved value: Buy floor and table lamps with diffusing bowls or high quality reflectors. Avoid glare. • Install bulbs of the right size. Avoid extreme contrasts, such as a single light in an otherwise darkened room. • Get shades with light-colored linings . . . shades designed to direct light over a wide area. GAS & ELECTRIC COMPANY
