The checks are strictly voluntary, and are for the motorists' own good. No tickets will be written for defective equipment. Members of the Highway Patrol will be on hand to assist with the checking. If a ear or truck does not pass inspection the owner will have the opportunity to have the equipment fixed and drive through the lane a second time. When a car or truck is approved by the checkers a "safety check" sticker will be placed on the windshield.

AS.C township men to Explain grain program Corn and grain sorghum producers of Fayette county who have not yet signed up for the government's feed grain program for 1901 will 'have the opportunity within the next few days of receiving a personal explanation of the program in their own homes. Ellis W. Thompson, Chairman of the county A. S. C. committee, has announced that farmer elected ASC community committeemen have been enlisted to call in person on all corn and grain sorghum producers in their townships who have not yet signed up national supplies of feed grains. The program provides for the voluntary reduction of corn 'and grain sorghum acreage from the 1959-1960 average for these crops on individual farms. Farmers who make the reductions will receive payments fiar diverting the former corn or grain sorghum acreage to conservation uses. The payment certificates may be ex- .changed for cash or for corn at the local market price. Half of the diversion payment will be advanced at once if the participa- ing farmer so desires. pv> r most farms, the payment have already been filed for 1132 Fayette county farms, or 44 per cent of all corn and grain sorghum farms in the county. The county ASC committee has set 60 per cent participation as the goal for Fayette county. "The initial sign-up was extra good" Chairman Thompson declared, "and we believe the final sign-up will be considerably greater if the benefits offered by the program become fully under- sto:d by those who have not yet filed applications. So we have asked the ASC community committeemen to call on the non- signers in their respective townships to give them a complete explanation and to answer ques- tiona. We feel that most farmers will sign up once they get the t Chairman Thompson said that the community committeemen making the calls will be pro- pared to sit down with paper and pencil and figure out exactly just how the individual farmer can gain financially by taking part in the program. The Chairman added that the committeemen will explain how participation will not only increase the net income of the individual farmers in mxt instances but will also help all farmers by preventing a further build-up of net lncome from the acres if they were in production. The payment assures a reasonable net income fnam the diverted acres regardless of any conditions such as drouth, flood, hail, disease or insects. For those who use all of the feed grain they raise, or even more, the diversion payment will permit purchase at market price of more than one-half of the feed grain they would normally raise on the diverted acreage. This advantage of the program is especially appealing to live- slock feeders. A big advantage to all participants is that the diverted land gets a valuable "rest" while earning a diversion payment which in most cases will equal the net return from a normal crop of Q3rn or grain sorghum. In addition, producers of corn and grain sorghum who participate in the program will be ellgi- ble to- price support on 1961 corn, grain sorghum, barley, oats,' and rye, and the price support rates on these grains are higher for 1961 than they were for 1960. Pnaducers of corn and grain sorghum who do not participate in the feed grain program will NOT be eligible for price support on their 1961 corn, grain sorghum, barley, oats, and rye.

Two Fayette county men, Eldon Otterstein, of Fayette and Ernest Schulcr, of Oelwein, received superior ratings. The butter score involves tests of keeping quality, composition, yeast and mold and bacterial content of the butter, besides the older standards of flavor, body, color, salt. When only the older standards were used, butter judges were able to make final awards at the time of the contest. Laboratory analysis and keeping quality now determine the rest of the scores. These had to be completed before the final scores could be announced. In the contest, flavor counts 40 points; body, color and salt 20 points; keeping quality 15 points; composition 10 and extraneous matter, yeast and mold (combined) and bacteria, 5 points each for a total of 100. Potthoff is a buttermaker at the Jesup Cooperative Creamery and Drilling is buttermiaker at the Farmers Cooperative Creamery in Cre&co. The March contest was the first in a series of four in which the buttermakers compete each year for honors for the year. The other exhibits in the series will be held at the Iowa State Fair, Waterloo Dairy Cattle Congress and the annual convention. Total scores for the four contests determine the butter- maker's standings for the year. Janice Stannuril ami (.'aiolyn Pi 'I'ler.
