C Culbertson, found that the ration containing 5 per cent soybeans was the only one of the three which produced pork hard enough to meet the demands of packers. The rations containing 10 and 20 per cent soybeans produced pork that varied from soft to oily, and the results clearly indicate that not more than 5 per cent of the ration should be made up of soybeans. In the above test cracked soybeans were used in the rations in order to make certain that each pig would consume the same percentage of beans. A check test using soybean oil- meal resulted in the same findings when enough extracted oil was added to the meal to make the actual amount of oil the same as that in the ration containing raw beans. A second check test made up of a ration with the oil alone mixed in with the grains and other ingredients produced approximately the same degree of soft pork as the other tests. EARLY HATCHED CHICKS ARE MOST ECONOMICAL It is poor economy to wait for warm weather before buying or hatching baby chicks because experiments have demonstrated that the early hatched chick will live and grow better than ihe late hatched one, declares Tuesday, February 25 l'?'

She suggests another simple method of decoration. Use a plain white cloth or leave a highly polished table surface bare. Stretch tautly a silk flag 12 to 19 inches long in the center of the table. Be sure that the flag is flying in the right direction, with the stars in the left-hand corner and stripes running from left to hight. Nothing should be placed on the flag. Glass candlesticks in groups of three holding red, white and blue candles may be draped at the bases with small flags and will complete the decoration. The Can Won't Hurt It A ''hardy perennial" question which keeps popping up in the mail of the Homemakers' Half Hour, Radio Station WOI, Iowa State College, is this one: Is it safe to leave canned food in the can after opening? REVIEW OF COMMUNICABLE DISEASE REPORTS IN IOWA It may be of some interest to review tha .current prevalence of various communicable diseases in Iowa as compared with a year ago and to indicate the total number of cases reported during 1935. Deaths in 1935 from preventable causes such as diphtheria, measles and scarlet fever are included and merit serious consideration. Diphtheria For the week ending Saturday, February 8th, six cases were notified to the Iowa State Department of Health, compity-ed with eleven cases for the corresponding week a year ago. During the past year, reported cases total- led 599. Deaths from this readily preventable cause numbered 56 in 1935, the greatest number since 1932. Influenza—six cases were reported for the week ending February 8th, in contrast to 214 cases for the same period last year. A total of 1008 cases were reported in 1935. More complete reporting of epidemic influenza is highly desirable. Cromwell, spent the past two weeks at the home of her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. F. Schaffer.

DEATHS POSSIBLE The serious natur eof pneumonia as an important cause of illness and death, is-well, known, In Iowa, for,, the Sryear peripfl, 1930-i'932 4 , .deaths v frpnji, pn^ monia (all forms). totalled p,39i, air* average annual death-rate lor the : state as a whole, of, .,72' per 100,000 of the population.-. • "Colds" represent a chief, factor in leading to the development of ''lobar" pneumonia, the form in which one or more entire lobes of the lung (s) are affected. "Bronchopneumonia", lungs are inflamed, often occurs as a fatal complication of influ- and whooping facts indicate bandry staff at Iowa State College. Late ! spring and summer chicks generally bring only discouragement to the poultry farmer, and every good poultry- man realizes this, Waters says. The chicks should have a good start In life before the hot summer months begin. It is a good recommendation not to hatch chicks after April 15, for the heavy breeds and not after May 15, for, the lighter breeds, he says: The first 8 weeks of a chick's life is usally the period of highest mortality, and it has been proved repeatedly that the death rate in chicks increases rapidly with the summer hatches.' Pullets from late hatched chicks ordinarily do not start laying until the following spring while the early hatched ones will mature and start produc- enza, measles cough. Figures and that greater use of known preventive measures against measles and whooping cough will 1 "»eow«..Jt« i it prevent entirely or lessen greatly the danger of serious lung complications. Colds may come in spite of efforts at prevention; careful attention to the common cold, however, has its own reward. A patient with a severe cold should stay in bed and by all means avoid chilling. Noteworthy progress has been made in recent years in the administrative care of lobar pneumonia. Delicate laboratory tests make it possible to determine which kind out of a group o: pneumococcus germs, is responsible for the pneumonia. The early use of serum is known to be of great value in some, although not against all cases of lobar pneumonia. In addition to prompt recognition of pneumonia and early use of serum (which depends upon the laboratory report)^ good nursing care is emphasized; home care in itself is Inadequate. Application of modern knowledge and discoveries offer he great hope that pneumonia, often called a "captian among the men of death", will soon be rested of much of its fatal power. A great decrease in the nuni- >er of deaths from pneumonia appears definitely possible in he coming years. ber premium. Early hatched cockerels will be ready for the broiler market before it is flooded with late hatched birds. The answer is yes. Food spoils no faster and no slower in the can than in any other container. Some acid foods such as fruit and tomatoes when left standing in the open can for a time tend to dissolve some of the iron of the container and take on a slightly metalic taste. But this is not at all harmful. Read Poems to Children Read poetry to and with your children, says Miss Mabel Snedaker, University Elementary School, Iowa City. Miss Snedaker talked to women attending Farm and Home Week meetings at Iowa State College. Children like poems about people, places to go and things to do, she said. Poems of Elizabeth Madox Roberts, Dorothy Aldis and Walter de la Mare, were prominent in the group which she read as .examples of the types of poems children like best, . Measles Eleven reported cases for. the past week, • in marked contrast to 1023 for the week ending February 8, 1935, indicate the current low seasonal prevalence of this disease. In 1935, measles, yes, common or TESTS AT COLLEGE SHOW SMALL GRAIN IS SCABBY Tests conducted in the seed laboratory at Iowa State College under the direction of Dr. R. H. Porter, plant pathologist, show that there is a tremendous amount of scab on wheat and barley and that oats and rye are affected in a lesser degree. Observations made in the fields last summer indicated that there would be much scab in the seed, and recent tests confirm those observations. Some samples of barley show a high as 100 per cent scab infec tion, while others show from i trace to 50 percent. The average for barley is high. A number of samples of wheat show 100 per cent scab infection also. Scabby wheat anc barley have a low weight per pushel, usually a low germination and cause vomiting when fed to hogs. Scabby barley is discounted when sold for malting purposes. - •••: Scab attacks oats and rye less Allan .caw.QRAy ' PROM SEEING Vf\ IGS SHOULD NOT HAVE OVER 5 PERCENT BEANS Here's more proof that not more than 5 per cent of the ration of fattening pigs should be soybeans. The Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station at Ames recently completed more experiments under the direction of C. C. Culbertson to confirm its prior tests which showed that not more than 5 per cent could be fed without causing soft pork. Results of these tests are now being released to Iowa farmers attending Farm and Home ,(Week at,low* State ~" ?V ;han it does barley and wheat, but samples of the former show some scab. Fanning will remove a large percentage of the lightweight, scabby kernels, and if the remaining heavier seeds are then treated with New Improved Ceresan at the rate of >/ 2 ounce per bushel, they will produce strong plants, says Dr. Porter. The Ceresan treatment will not only reduce injury from scab but will also control oat; smut, stinking smut of wheat, covered and striped smut of barley and reduce the root rot diseases of all small grains. Seed treatment will not prevent the appearance of scab on the heads of small grain during the growing season because the organism, is carried over on cornstalks through the winter, Porter warns. The general condition of barley seed is much poorer than average this year, according to porter, and farmers will have to treat their seed and sow heavier than usual to get a good PROSPECT FOR TURKEY PRICES NOT TOO GOOD Poultry enthusiasts in Iowa wiho are seriously oonsiderijng going into or increasing turkey production this year can expect much lower prices next fall and winter than prevailed this past season, believes H. L. Wilcke of the Paultry Husbandry Department at Iowa State College. Hundreds of inquiries received by the poultry staff at Ames indicate that Iowa may over-do the turkey business in the next 2 years and force market prices down. The good profits of last year, he says, have prompted many people to begin or expand turkey production, and this increased supply, combined with larger competitive supplies of beef and pork, will probably reduce their income from turkeys. Costs May Retard Some The high price of turkey eggs and poults prevailing this year may discourage many and thus prevent the bottom from dropping out of the turkey market, Wilcke asserts. Several management problems more serious than most people believe, will also cause many poultrymen to reduce their expected flock. It takes 8 to 10 acres of range to successfully raise 500 poults, and they must be completely isolated from chickens in order to avoid red measles, caused 151 fatalities; reported cases were 21,432. Mumps — Two hundred and forty-seven cases for last week, ending February 8, compared with 181 cases reported a year ago, denotes epidemic prevalence. During the past year, 6,765 cases were reported. Scarlet fever — Notified cases last week numbered 182, greatly exceeding the 101 cases of a year ago. Deaths in 1935 to- talled 69; cases numbered 3,771. Smallpox — Though pioneer among preventable diseases, yet 25 cases were reported during the first week of February, 1936. Last year, 205 cases in all, were reported in Iowa. Other diseases, with total number of reported cases for 1935, are: Chickenpox, 2,641, epidemic encephalitis 11, malaria 24, meningococcic meningitis 95, poliomyelitis or infantile paralysis 65, tuberculoss 480, typhoid fever 193, undulant fever 112, whooping cough 841, gonorrhea 1957 and syphilis 1447. WILCKE GIVES FORMULA FOR SUCCESSFUL LAYING RATION What is a good ration for the laying flock? This was the chief question asked at the poultry conference during Farm and Home Week at Iowa State College. H. L. Wilcke of the college poultry staff told the conference that the college flock was receiving a ration combined of the following ingredients: For a 100 pound mixture: 36 pounds of ground yellow corn, 20 pounds ground oats, 14 pounds standard middlings, 10 pounds meat and bone meal, 5 pounds dried milk, 3 pounds soybean oilmeal, 7 pounds alfalfa meal, 3 pounds ground oyster shell or limestone, 1 pound bone meal, 1 pound salt and 1 percent by weight of cod liver oil. The above rations is the most successful that has been tried at the college poultry farm this season, Wilcke says. SOYBEAN GERMINATION TESTS VARY FROM 22 TO 98 PERCENT Sixty samples of Iowa soybean seed tested recently in the Seed Laboratory at Iowa State College had an .average germination of 83.9 percent. Dr. R. H. Porter, director of the laboratory, states that the samples were received from 37 counties and represent every section of the state. The highest germination percentage was 98 percent and the lowest 22. All of the samples were 1935 seed taken from threshed beans and from plants left in the field until late in the fall. There is some indication, says Dr. Porter, that soybeans can withstand a moisture content higher than that of corn without injury. One sample taken from a plant in late December had a moisture content of 22 percent and germinated 85 percent in the laboratory, he says. The actual cause of low germination in soybeans cannot be determined from the present data, but low temperatures and high moisture content are believed to cause the greater part of it. advised to drill in a mixture of 4 pounds of sweet clover, 5 of red clover and 2 of alsike late in March as soon ns the ground is thawed but before the grass has started. It ts important, Hughes says, to force the discs into the ground, using weights on the drawbars if necessary. If a drill is not available, a disc can be used to make gashes in the sod, but care must be exercised not to tear the sod loose and turn it. ; Phosphate Will Help After discing, the clover seed should be broaddaat and the ' land harrowed the teeth sloped well forward; a roller may be used also. On most soils the application of 125 Ibs. of 20 percent superphosphate will prove beneficial. It is important that stock be kept off the re/seoded area until around June?!/ and close pasturing should -not be allowed until late in the summer. This requirement makes it advisable to reseed only a part of the pasture in any one year. On many pastures the greatest benefit from xeseeding cannot be obtained without applying 2 or 3 tons per acre of finely ground limestone— which sliould be applied in th« lall before seedings are to be fflnde the following spring.

Either a manure top dressing or lime is recommended when seeding in clover. Both gave good results in the Mt. Pleasant experiment which was conducted cooperatively by the State Board of Control and the Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station. A pasture not reseeded last spring gave 172 "steer-pasture- days" per acre last summer as compared with over 300 steer- pasture-days on a pasture that was reseeded in the early spring. These most recent results are similar to those obtained during the drouth of 1934 on pastures reseeded in the spring of 1933. During the drouth year the check pasture, which received no reseeding or other treatment, gave 76 steer-pas- hard as it may have 'seemed to him while undergoing the experience. ,- : It is equally true that many men fail because of a false pride which causes them to shrink from humble tasks which might lead to ultimate success. Henry Ford was a machinist's helper, Thomas A. Edison was a newsboy, John D. Rockefeller was a clerk, and neither had early education to speak of. They and ^thousands of others succeeded because they were not ashamed to toil with their hanrt« until something better pn.vs-en.ted itself. Not every boy can become a Ford, an Edison, or a Rockefeller, but everyone who 5s not afraid or ashamed to work can make an honorable and useful place for himself and he doesn't have to begin in a "whitecollar" Wool prices have increased and are expected to contine near the present level during the early months of 1936, according to a report from the United States Bureau of Agricultural Economics.

Mortality 10-20 Percent ~ ~~ Turkey raisers will need, 120 square feet of brooder house space for 100 to 150 poults, and even more space will be required after the birds are a month old. A mortality of around 10 to 20 wrcent may also be expected, ie points out. Besides these problems, the urkey producer must remember hat the investment required to ring a turkey to market condition runs as high as $2.00 on the average. This cost includes cost of poult, brooding expense, depreciation on buildings and equipment, rent on land and feed. Labor costs are not figured into this cost, and if they were, the actual investment would run higher. Tire Chains ODD SIZES 30 x 4.50 28 x 4.75 Old style Weed Chains, but will give good service.
