ffian 4,500 farmers Become cooperators in '60 More than • 4,500 farm.T:; became cooperators with iheii focal Iowa soil conservation districts during 1960, according in an announcenjent tod.'jy by }•': ;>nk H. Mendell, Stale Conscrvaimu ist, for Vhe U. S. tVil Conservation Service. Tho si.-itwjii'm uas made in a review of conservation accomplishments in Iowa's Kill soil conservation districts. The 4,500 figure is an increase oi two per cent over last year. The primary objective of f,,im- crs In becoming district corpora- tors is the development of complete plans of soil and water o.n- servatitan on their farms and the application of -soil conservation practices with technical assi.s- 1 . tancc from the Soil Conservation Service. As of January. 1. more than 70,000 Iowa farrner.s are now engaged in establishing' soil nnd water conservation measures on ' their farms. Nearly tiO.QUl) of these cooperators have aln-ady developed complete soil and water conservation plans; 3,GOO of these plans were developed in I960, according to Mendell. Soil Conservation S c i v i c i i technicians provided U-eluuv-jl services to 26,000 soil conservation district coopcrators and !>.0(J<) other farmers in' 1960. More than 20,000 .farmers applied one or more soil and water con.-ervvi- tion, practices. Following are. spine'bf. the most significant of the'conservation meusLircx m.staf- led during the year. Conservation cropping s y s- (ems, 473,000 acres in 1UGO and 5,800,000 acres .to date; contour farming, 147,000. acres in 19GO and- 3,573,000 acres to date; .strip cropping systems-, 23,000 acres in 1960 and 408,000 acres to date; Increased rate and New extension on Old savings bonds 'TJie .latest extension on ihe'bldest Series E savings bonds at-a full three ancl three fourth per cent annual interest rate is a boon to the thousands nf people in this county who still hold bonds bought between May, 1941 and May, 1949." Forrest 13. Claxton of Fayette, volunteer county co-chairman, said today. He .referred to the recent announcement by the Treasury dealing with E bonds that begin to reach the end of their extended maturity in May of this year. This secgnd 10-year extension was promised' back tn 1959, but' the terms and interest rate were not announced at that time. Under the new ruling, these bonds will return three and three fourth per cent each year, compounded semi-annually, based on their current cash value (well over face value). "All of these bonds bought between May, 1941, and May, 1949, originally drew 2.9 per cent interest," the chairman continued. "In their first extension, they have been earning from 2.00 to 3.47 per cent, if held to extended maturity. "Now those loyal bond owners who have kept their E bonds for the full 20 years will be awarded with a full three and three fourth per-cent return each year on the full current value of their bonds. This should encourage them to reap the benefits of this high rate for another full 10 years." ;.r:i-;sl:m>! ; i-;-.i>YM'. n . 15.000 ar- i".: in HH;H ;i,;.i i;;.'i.ooo .vres to <!•'!•! : |i:\..(i!iv imp: i veim'nt. 2H,- 111111 ; "' :l " "' ll'lid and l!. r )!),0()0 .If; • , In (.'.-id ; (ann SVindlllCaliS, 1.•'>'''•! ai-nv in lili'il) .-Hid •13,000 •'•'>'< • '" d,-,V; ln.'i' planting 1,<- [!

To take part in U. S. Pacific fleet exercise Bernard M. Rohde, aviation eletrician's mate airman, USN, son. of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard J. Hi:hdr nf Ronie 1, Fayette, Iowa, serving with Anti - Submarine Squadron 25 aboard thc anti-submarine warfare support aircraft carrier USS Yorktown operating out of Long Beach, Calif., will take part in a large U. S. Pacific Klrcl exercise during the Spring of 1961. Nicknamed "Green Light," the exercise will be conducted by the U. S. First Fleet, commanded by Vice Admiral C. L. Nelson. Divided into three phases, "Green Light" will involve more than 50,000 men, 150 ships and 300 Navy and Marine Corps aircraft and will cover a two-month period from April 3 to June 3. All elements of Navy and Marine Corps striking power will be exercised this period. This series of operations is a part ot thc continuing program to keep ships and men of the Pacific Fleet in a high state of training and readiness. In addition, these exercises are designed to further increase the readiness and mobility of the U. S. First Fleet and keep it prepared to move anywhere at any time in its role of preserving peace.

LAMBS This year's total .-.prin,; lamb ci,.-p probably will lie slightly larger than that of last year, bill only by about 200.l)l)i) liVad.'Tin- increase in sheep ninnlieis stopped last year in Die states that produce and market their own native lambs. It now looks as if thc Western states \vill halt their increase in lamb prodiu-tion this year. An important factor in halting thc expansion ef sheep numbers, is present unsatisfactory lamb prices. HOGS Hog prices will probably be steady to stronger rhiring the next few ninths, as slaughter numbers decline seasonally. Hogs arc selling now at about 75 cents a hundredweight less than they were in in id-February. Sharply increased prices for lard, meanwhile, appear to be narrowing the discount margin frr heavy hogs as eompan-.i with light hogs on the terminal markets. Lard prices rese from about 9 cents u pound in Uerember, 1059, V 13 cents a pound in December, I960. Market demand and farm prices are ordinarily affected by the general business conditions. Kutish says it appears that tho decline in business activity could level off in the next few months. The question, however, is whether there will be a business upturn in the second half of the year. Even with thc leveling off, the unemployment rate will remain relatively high. The unemployment level now is approaching the level it reached in early 1958. This is one factor behind the hick of "zip" in the present cattle market. Lack of purchasing puw- cr because of unemployment is probably affecting the demand for bt'.-f, Legion, auxiliary annual spring Conference to held be at Elkader Jim Harmon president MAVNARD — Jim Hatrison i was eletted president and Gary Brownel! vice-president of the West Central chapter of the Future Farmers of America when Mori- ihim 400 members of The the Auxiliary meetings. j. 1 mc ' ^"^ 6V !"'? gl **& Am,,,r;m u.
