Sharp Inroads Made in Supplies- Steel Strike Hasn't Hurt Iowa Much, But Pain Growing Sharper By The Associated Press The nationwide steel strike is affecting Iowa about like a cavity in a tooth—it hasn't hurt much yet, but the pain grows sharper as time goes on. There are a few localized painful spots, but the strike, now 73 days old, hasn't yet reached the point where Iowa aches all over. Steel users over the state contacted in an Associated Press survey, however, are concerned about the future. Sharp Inroads They laid in stockpiles of steel before the Walkout started, but the prolonged shutdown has " forced them to make sharp inroads into their supplies. Most say they'll be able to operate normally or near normally until about the first of the year, but there may be some slender weeks after that unless fires in the blast furnaces are rekindled soon. State officials, too. are casting worried looks at the situation. Gov. Herschel Loveless has asked state sources to assemble for him all information available on the effects of the steel shortage. 50,000 Employees George W. Moore, director of the Iowa State Employment Service, estimated Iowa's steel-using industries employ about 50,000 persons. He said layoffs could reach a sizeable figure next month if the strike endures. Industry leaders, however, are more concerned about the period from Jan. 1 to mid February. They say it will take about six weeks after the strike ends for the steel industry to resume full production, and even longer for any substantial deliveries to come through. A few Iowa firms huve turned to foreign supplies for the steel they need and others arc investigating these sources. But James Klein, president of Klein Mfg. Co. in Burlington, expressed disappointment over a shipment of galvanized steel his firm imported. He said it was watermarked and discolored. Pinch Felt Some of the more acute twinges felt in Iowa as a result of the steel strike include: The Oliver Corp. farm machinery plant at Charles City closed down because of curtailed supplies, idling about 1,000 workers. A few. however, have recently been called back. The Chicago and North Western Railroad has announced it is laying off 400 men next Monday at TO Times Herald, Carroll, la. Friday, Sept. 25, 1959 its Clinton shops because of inability to get steel. Chief Engineer John Butter of the Iowa State Highway Commission has advised Gov. Herschel Loveless there may be some curtailment in Iowa's Interstate Highway System paving program this fall because of a growing shortage of steel reinforcing rod. Klein Mfg. Co.« in Burlington has laid off 15 men, and the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad shops there have lopped off 275 employes. Some dealers in Oskaloosa report they are finding it difficult to obtain delivery on steel corn cribs, needed to store Iowa's record 800 million bushel corn crop. Here's a look around the state at the situation in various cities: BURLINGTON: Except for Burlington Railroad shops and Klein Mfg. Co., no layoffs reported yet. Other steel-using industries report the situation not critical yet but say it may become so soon. CARROLL: Effects of the strike have been mild because there are no large steel users in Carroll. However, shortages of specific steel items may delay construction of the new St. Paul Lutheran Church. COUNCIL BLUFFS'. Shortage of materials and a cutback in traffic resulting from the steel strike have brought some slight reduction of railroad payrolls. Union Pacific has been gradually reducing its work force because of freight traffic drop-offs. Rock Island dropped seven men from its car department because of a shortage of supplies. DAVENPORT: Midwest Metals Corp. reports stockpiles dwindling but no real difficulty as yet. Quad Cities farm machinery plants say there's no immediate pinch, but situation could tighten in another month or so. FORT DODGE: Of six major steel users, only one has had any major cutback in production or heavy reduction of manpower. MARSHALLTOWN: Major steel users report about a 60-day supply of steel on hand, thanks to prudent stockpiling before the strike started and timely deliveries since. However, Lennox Industries, Inc., says it is tapping sources other than its regular supplies to maintain its inventory. NEWTON: Most companies have stocks on hand to carry through October. Winpower Co. has had to delay two projects, on* planned for October, the other for November, because needed parti can't be obtained. PERRY: Progressive Foundry Co. has adequate pig iron on hand to last until first of the year. Osmundson Mfg. Co. reports same situation in its steel supplies, (hough some items are in short supply. Wicse Plow Co. says it's all right for the rest of this year, but dubious about January and February. WEBSTER CITY: Major users have had no shortage and say steel available, though some gauges rather hard to find. Ne production cutbacks, layoffs or curtailment of working hours are reported.

Surgery on Siamese Twins Ends in Deaths CHICAGO (AP> — A difficult attempt to save the lives of tiny Siamese twins by separating them has ended in their deaths. Mary Helen Schultz died during the operation Thursday. Marie Ellen Schultz died Thursday night. 4 hours and 40 minutes after the surgery was completed. The girls together weighed 11 pounds. 10 ounces at their birth four days ago. They were joined at the abdomen. They were unable to take enough nourishment to sustain life. Dr. Willis J. Potts, surgeon-in- chief of Children's Memorial Hospital, said surgery offered their only chance to live. But, in the course of the three- hour operation, an eight-member surgical team made two discoveries: The twins shared a single heart and a single liver. That meant that only one could retain the organs and be saved. "There was no chance for both to live." Dr. Potts related. "Circumstances were such that we could only give Marie Ellen her rightful chance to life." MaYie Ellen was larger and in better physical shape. But the heart was badly deformed and had one auricle instead of two. There have been a number of separations of Siamese twins linked at the abdomen. But Dr. Potts said this was the first instance of surgical division involving interdependent circulation and respiration systems. The father of twins. Elvin Schultz, a Gary, Ind., insurance adjuster who lives in Chesterton, Ind., stated before the operation that it would bo fine to have the two babies or even one. "If neither of them lives, I feel it probably was meant to be that way," he added. The mother. Marilyn, still is in a hospital at Valparaiso, Ind., where the twins were delivered Sunday by Caesarean section. The parents, both 28. have three other daughters.

This way is effective because Kellogg's All-Bran is a whole bran cereal. And bran is nature's best bulk-forming food.

Juergens Produce and Feeds Checkerboard News By Checkerboard Service Man Donald Danner WE HAD A WONDERFUL CROWD AT LAST NIGHT'S CATTLE FEEDERS MEETING Every year it gets bigger ond bigger, and this year was the biggest ever. More than 1100 cattle feeders from southwest Iowa area gathered for the Purina Cattle Feeders Meeting held at Audubon Fair Grounds Thursday night, which makes us Checkerboard dealers very happy. It is mighty pleasing to see the interest that is shown in the meeting. A very large portion of these people were our friends and customers .from Carroll County, and that is doubly pleasing to us here at the Carroll Checkerboard store. It was mighty nice too, to hear so many favorable comments by feeders who attended about the message of Dr. James Williamson, head of Purina's research department on beef cattle and sheep nutrition. The feeders generally agreed that they were able to take home some profitable ideas from the meeting. PURINA CALF STARTER When a cattleman goes out to purchase feeding, he usually comes back with a set of replacement cattle for this fall and winter calves. When he gets them home he is quite concerned with the method that he is going to handle and care for them. The cattleman unusually wants some type of a good nutritious, palatable calf starter ration. For this purpose of getting calves adjusted, to draw them up to the bunk, to make them drink water and to really give them a quick boost — we in Purina have researched and built a new Calf Starter Ration. This ration is called Purina Calf Starter A. It is a bulky, sweet, nutritious type of starter that calves will really go for. It will help to get them adjusted again, due to shipping fever and proper bowel movement. HOW TO USE We use a combination of Purina Beef Chow and Purina Bulky Las along with oats to grind and mix it right on your own farm. Plus this, we add Purina Mix-R-Mycin which is a heavy antibiotic, and vitamin mix, which will help your calves get over the effect of shipping fever, help cut clown the incidence of bloat, hoof rot, and bacterial diarrhea, also known as scours. To this we add just the right amount of molasses that really gives this calf ration added palatability. In recent weeks, I have talked to cattlemen who just couldn't get their calves to eating, but when we put this New Calf Ration in their bunks, it really brought them up to eat. This new ration has tremendous drawing power to get those calves up to the bunk and eating and drinking. When your calves arrive, give us a call and we will come out to your farm and Chek-R-Mix you a favorite calf starting formula. For those of you who are buying grain, you may order a complete calf starting ration Chek-R-Mixed at our store and delivered to your farm, put into your bins or feeders. POULTRY HOUSE LIGHTING TIPS Just a reminder to you good poultry raisers, who have been so busy around the farm yard, that possibly you overlooked the fact that providing your poultry flocks with the proper lighting — during the daylight shortened fall days. Flocks that are coming into production should have a 14- hour light day in order to hold and increase their per cent of lay.' As of this time of year birds are getting only 10 to 11 daylight hours — so that means that you as a good poultry flock manager should provide them with an additional 3 to 4 hours of artificial light to make a total of a 14-hour light day If you haven't already done so, adjust your lighting facilities to give 0 1 • • • • • m mill f the flock more time to eat and drink which will result fn a higher percentage of production for you.
