The old "farmer complexion has had a face lift. It is now a composite face of utilities serving a state which, his torically a world leader in agricul ture, is fast becoming a leader in industry There are more telephones per capita on Iowa farms than any where else in the world 1 1 Iowa' 933 towns and cities are electrified Over 160,000 farmers, or 80 percent of all Iowa farmers, have electrift cation, while 99.9 percent of the ur ban population of Iowa has elec trlcal service available These are the kind of statistics gathered by the market and research division of- the Iowa Development Commission, which make Iowa modern and attractive to prospective industrialists. And these are only gleanings about Iowa's service concerns. Iowa stands first in the nation in rural telephone development. Over 87 percent of Iowa farms are reached by telephone. Iowa is al so third in total residential phone development. There is one resi dence telephone for every 3.5 peo pie, almost one phone'to the family. Natural gas was utilized in 1930 31, and today there are 115 gas plants and distributive systems in Iowa. There are two natural gas pipelines crossing Iowa and two plants in the state which handle mixed gas. Newspapers and radios are the most popular and widespread com munication media of modern Iowa Iowa weekly newspapers have a total circulation of 731,932 and daily newspapers reach 1,161,000 sub scribers. One Iowa newspaper claims a Sunday circulation of 525 000. Iowa's radio service is given 37 radio stations, both commercial and non-commercial, located in 22 cities. There are 16 independent power companies operating in Iowa, which serve over 90 percent of the urban population. In the smaller com munities there are 85 municipally owned electric plants, and 53 co operatives serving the rural parts of Iowa, as part of the Rural Elec trification Administration.

This experiment, measuring the pick-up of hogs following steers on feed, was carried out in conjunc tion with feeding tests with cattle. These results were presented at Cattle Feeders' Day ati Ames, June 18. Four pigs followed each 'group of seven steers on experiment. The amount of shelled corn saved by the hogs per 100 pounds of gain put on the cattle varied from 57 to 76 pounds per lot. Protein saved by the hogs for every 100 pounds of gain made by cattle varied from two to 3.6 pounds for each lot of cattle. Figs Differ C. C. Culbertson, Iowa State College animal husbandman in change of the experiments, pointed out that it was assumed that all hogs behind the cattle would have the same ability to produce pork. There is always some difference in in dividual hogs and this accounted in part for variation in the amount of feed saved in each lot. Another factor'affecting feed saved by hogs is the amount fed the cattle. Pigs following the steers were fed, in addition to what they picked up, .6 pound of mixed protein supplement, including a mineral mixture. They were trough-fed as much shelled corn as they would eat twice daily and still perform their task of picking up grain lost by the steers. Save Less Ground Corn A check lot of pigs, similar to those following the cattle, was fed '•A. L. Meier, Vice President, and W. A.

They did not follow cattle, and provided a basis for determining how much feed equivalent the cattle recovered from the manure. The check group of pigs was self- fed supplemental mixture, block salt and the same kind of shelled corn as the hogs following cattle. For the farmer who has pigs following steers, Culbertson points out that if ground corn is fed, hogs won't retrieve as much as if shelled corn is fed. Also, pigs following heavier cattle will pick up more than those following lighter steers or calves. Culbertson says that' the big trouble with using hogs to follow cattle as practiced on farms is that the pigs usually are not fed enough in addition to what they are able to pick up from the manure to make the most profitable gains. Thin Strawberries For Better Crop Next Year Strawberry patches should be rejuvenated as soon as the berry season, is over, says Ed Cott, Iowa State College extension horticulturist. To get the strawberries in shape for a first-class crop next year, Cott says to thin out the plants in the row, leaving one strong, healthy, 1-year-old plant about every 12 inches. A hoe works very well for the thinning job. Cultivate between the rows, leaving rows 18 to 24 inches wide. The area between rows should also vary from 18 to 24 inches, depending on the kind of cultivation used. Follow clean cultivation practices until fall. This controls weeds and provides better conditions for rooting of the plant runners. j Where the present strawberry patch has produced two or more crops, Cott says to plan now to plant a new patch next spring. The ground for the new patch can be prepared ifl advance by planting a cover crop, such as oats or rye, to which a complete fertilizer has been added. Easier Ways Lighten Summer Laundry Task Monday may be traditional washday. But chances are good another day is a better laundry day for you —in the summertime, anyhow. Mondays the house .often needs attention when there have been weekend guests. Usually there's food preparation to take care of. And the whole family must get back into the workday routine. You're probably less tired on some other day of the week. Most homemakers consider the family laundry their hardest-to-do summer task, says Fannie Gannon, Iowa State College home management specialist. In warm weather there are more clothes to wash. And there are those summertime stains—from mildew, grass, fruits and berries. Work clothes may be more soiled. Moreover, rigid schedules don't work out in the summer.' The weekly laundry must be fitted in along with such seasonal tasks as canning garden produce when it's ready. Fit the laundry in when it's most convenient for you, is Miss Gannon's advice. You may find it easier to wash twice a week—the white things one day and the colored clothes another. Arrange a shelf with simple household stain removers where it's really handy. Include directions for removing stains, too, so you won't waste time wondering how to remove a particular stain. Get the cooperation of the family in taking proper care of soiled clothing and wet towels, and you won't have mildew stains to contend with. dent Truman emphasized the goal to be achieved. "I urgently request each member of every American farm family to accept responsibility for eliminating' at ..least one possible source of accidents during that week." He also asked that all organizations and persons interested in farm life and welfare join in a concerted attack upon these menaces to the lives and happiness of American farmers and their families. BIDE Mrs. Anna Johnson, Emerson, was in her five-room house when a tornado struck there recently. The house was picked up and blown fifty yards. Neighbors found Mrs. Johnson walking about in the ruins, bruised and suffering shock but otherwise unhurt. Need a Tonic?
