A USED LEONARD REFRIGERATOR WILLMAN MOTOR [Telephone No. 293 POSTVILLE, IOWA With over half of each year's hay crops ranking only fair or poor, many farmers are making grass silage as a means of getting full value from their hay crops. Ralph Krenzin, agronomy specialist at Iowa State College, says that Iowa farmers may find grass silage especially valuable for their first hay'crop. At this time other field work interferes, and the weather is often unfavorable.. Grass silage can be put up in any weather, he points out. Farmers can also make more use of their silos, Krenzin says. By filling the silo with grass in June, at a time when the grass is growing abundantly, you can use it later in the summer to supplement poor pastures. Then the silo can be used for corn in the fall. If the silo is to be used for grass silage, it may need some repairs and reinforcing. Grass is several times heavier than corn silage. Now is the time to do that reinforcing before the press of other work gets too great. Pound for pound, grass silage is not as high in feed value as corn silage, 'and supplementary grains should be included in the ration when grass silage is fed. It takes good grass to make good silage, too. What you take out of the silo will never be any better than what you put in. Church COMMUNITY PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH OF POSTVILLE Rev.

SEND FOB ADVANCE SALE OF TICKETS FOB EDDIE HOWARD SMt, tax lirtaltt Iowa lakes and streams furnish, recreation for thousands of fishermen, boatmen, and swimmers, but they are also the scene of almost daily drownings, mostly caused by carelessness. The American Red Cross suggests the following hints on water safety: Wait an hour or two after eating before going swimming. Don't stay in water after becoming tired. Swim only in supervised swimming places. Don't overestimate the distance you are able to swim. River currents are dangerous; don't try to buck them. Use the safest meth- or possible to rescue a persons in trouble in the water; use a boat or throw some floating object if possible. When a person accidentally falls into the water, he should remove clothing before attempting to swim out. There are more than 10,000 pleasure boats on Iowa's inlahd waters, and a few simple safety rules governing their use will prevent many tragedies. Iowa laws require that all boats for hire must pass an annual inspection. All inspected boats have a small metal tag attached stating the passenger capacity of the boat. Under no condition exceed the passenger capacity of the craft. Do not use an unseaworthy boat. Do not go on the water when a storm is approaching or when the water is rough. Don't wear boots or other hampering clothing when in a boat. Do not purposely rock a boat or permit any horseplay by other boat occupants. If you are unfortunate enough to capsize stay with the boat. Secure a firm hand-hold and wait for help or drift ashore with the craft. If there are two persons when the boat capsizes, hold hands across the bottom of the boat. If you lose an oar do not jump overboard to retrieve it without first dropping the anchor. The boat may drift away faster than you can swim. Never stand up in the boat to hoist anchor. Do not put a large motor on a small boat. There are no finer sports than swimming, boating, and fishing, and everyone can enjoy these pleasures safely if good judgement is exercised. Mulching will help conserve moisture in your garden.
