In spite of mid-season prospects that looked mediocre and government programs to cut back production the outlook based on Sept. 1 conditions was for an average yield of 61 bushels an acre. Iowa crop reporting officials summed up the figures Tuesday, predicting a total yield of 617,747,000 bushels, compared with last yearns output of 521,769,000 bushels at 51 bushels to the acre. This would only be topped by 600 million plus totals in 1946. 1948 and 1952. The all-time high was 677 million bushels in 1948. Retired Iowa Farmer, 66, Scales High Peak CALGARY, Alta.

State to Set Up Priority System for Flu Shots DES MOINES m - A State Health Department advisory committee will meet here Friday to work out a system of priorities for distribution of the limited supply of vaccine to combat Asian flu. As matters now stand the demand for the vaccine has been building up daily and will exceed the supply. The advisory committee will meet with Dr. Edmund G. Zimmerer, state health commissioner, whose qffice said that a number of large business firms have ordered thousands of doses of the vaccine. The State Board of Control has advised the superintendents and heads of the state penal institu-; tions and hospitals to place their, own orders. j The vaccine is being manufac-i tured by six drug companies which : have agreed to allot their production on a basis of population. Iowa's share of this amount would be 1.6 per cent of the output. During the manufacturing period from Aug. 12 through Sept. 5 this amounts to 16,453 doses for this state. Currently the only vaccine to reach Iowa have been small amounts received by physicians. Members of the Iowa State College football squad are among the | few Iowans who have received vaccine shots thus far. WARREN AYRES DIES SHELDON Services will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday for Warren L.

What "every parent should know about homework Home study la usually done after dark-* under an electric light Because the work if elose, sensitive eye muscles must work overtime, shaping and focusing to adjust to this strenuous work that nature never intended eyes to perform. The small investment in light is cheaper than risking damage to your ohild's sight. Insufficient light is one of the greatest causes of eyestrain. Nevertheless, it if the easiest to remedy. Provide your child a lamp of his own whether desk type, table or pinup. Make certain it has a 150-watt bulb and that the reflector it of the diffusing type, to soften the light. The mere fact that a lamp Is attractive to look at doee not assure that H will supply proper lighting. By all means, avoid glare eaused by unshaded bulbs. Glare if raw, irritating and harmful. Remember, too, that light-colored paint and wallpaper are beet for seeing. It costs so little to provide good light. A 160* watt bulb will bum 2 full hours for just a penny.
