The drive is expected to get under way in the early part of June, conducted in a similiar manner as that of last year. The campaign was a success last year and residents enjoyed a summer free of the pest. With the same fine cooperation that was extended last year by businessmen and home owners, the campaign this year is sure to meet with equal success.

If we have a good corn crop we will see high hog prices compared with corn," says Iowa State College farm economist Francis Kutish. "The U. S. Department of Agriculture has urged the nation's hog producers to increase pig production this fall by at least 10 percent to provide a minimum of 34 million pigs . . . for marketing in the spring and summer of 1949 .... to offset the declines expected in the output of beef, veal, lamb and mutton," reports the office of Clinton P. Anderson, secretary of agriculture. Expand Livestock These statements indicate that fall pig production will be profitable for' Iowa farmers who. have favorable conditions to increase fall farrowings. As Kutish points out, prospective feed-to-stock ratios favor the expansion of livestock. Normal yields will give us a three billion bushel corn crop this year in addition to a carryover about one-half that of previous years. That, coupled with a further 10 to 15 percent drop in animal numbers, points to possibilities for profitable expansion of livestock. Beat Cash Corn Too, corn marketed in the form of livestock will return a better profit than will corn sold for cash if present indications prove correct. The Anderson statement supports Kutish's thinking. "A more favorable hog-feed price ratio is in prospect for 1948-49 than during the past several months. Prices of feed grains are expected to be somewhat lower in the 1948-49 feeding year which begins next October, and there is the further prospect that hog prices will continue relatively high." All in all. it adds up to a "good deal" for the Iowa farmer who is set up so that he can have sows bred for September and October farrowing. How To Fight Weeds This Year Explained Use chemical sprays cautiously to control weeds in flax says E. P. Sylwester, extension botanist at Iowa State College. It is known that some types of flax such as B5128, Crystal and Minerva are quite sensitive to 2,4-D and should not be sprayed with the material. Varieties such as Dakota, Kota, Bison and Red Wing are quite resistant and can be sprayed with relative safety if extremely small dosages are used. Sinox and Dow Selective can be used without endangering the crop, however, Sylwester says. They have been used by flax growers for several years and under good conditions do about as good a job killing weeds as 2.4-D. Sinox and Dow Selective can be used even if a legume seedling is present. Legumes are killed by 2.4-D. Apply Sinox and Dow Selective when flax is four to eight inches high and while the weeds are in an active growing condition. Mix two to four quarts of the concentrate with 100 gallons of water and apply at the rate of 75 to 100 gallons per acre. If used, 2.4-D should be applied in small dosages. One-fourth pound SERVICE ... To Our People] IN PERSON Left Is Never Right The left is never right. That's not a political slogan, it's a warning by safety experts that careless driving is dangerous. Last year 2,600 persons were killed in traffic accidents as a result of driving on the wrong side of the road. Over 260,000 were injured, many of them permanently disfigured. Drive right, warns the Accident Prevention Department, Association of Casualty and Surety Companies, and you won't be left for the undertaker.
