PAGE EIGHT. THE POSTVILLE HERALD. POSTV1LLE, IOWA WEDNESDAY, Jufcy 2 , 1* See It by C. W. D. There was a decided red tint over Philadelphia last week when Henry Wallace and his gang arrived for their third party convention. The presence of Representative Vita Marcantonio. American Labor Party member from New- York, on the platform added strongly to the Kremlin background motivating this new party. The new third party platform advocated public ownership of key industries and public utilities, immediate peace negotiations with Kussia and the party will lead the fight for the constitutional right of the Communists to express their views here. Henry Wallace, himself, may not be a Communist but his movement has been taken over by the Communist party and the movements of the new organization are being directed by the Reds. ***** HELP I Xced Someone Through the courtesy of the Henry Herald of Verden. Oklahoma, we reprint the following statistical report. The Henry folks down in flat and windy Verden got it from the Chickasha Daity Express i which is the fiat and windy town ten miles to the east where Jeff Williams, who was here not so long ago for the bankers' convention, does his living.) The Chickasha paper in turn reprinted it through the courtesy of the Pawnee (Okla.,1 Chief which got it from a Missouri editor, who in turn had seen it somewhere else. So we swipe it, likewise.

Such books as "Tobacco Road." "God's Little Acre." and "The Passionate Witch," came under the scrutinizing eye of the chief and after blinking several times he decided that others should not have the opportunity to read such stuff. The matter of "obscenity" in the books is not a point in question Grasshoppers Threat To Crops In The County Increase Your Returns Do you want to increase your returns on eggs sold on grade? Experiments have shown that when eggs are placed in the fillers with points down it results in less second grade eggs. When eggs are placed in the fillers with the air cell down it causes the yolk to move from its central position and resembles an old egg.

Telephone No. 251 Postville, Iowa The grasshoppers will seriously threaten growing crops in this area within the next few weeks if control measures are not started at once, County Extension Director" Fred O'Riley warned Allamakee county farmers this week. Tre- menduous grasshopper infestations are building up all over the state this year and the 'hoppers are now moving from stubble fields and fence rows to corn, soybeans and alfalfa. In southern Iowa, where the 'hoppers are biggest, they have already eaten their way as far as twenty rows into corn fields, leaving bare, stripped stalks behind them. The pests are only about half-grown in central Iowa, where little serious damage has been reported as yet. In the northern part of the state the 'hoppers can still be controlled at little expense in the hatching beds. To control grasshoppers in this area, here are the Iowa State Col-1 lege recommendations prescribed by Dr. Gunderson.—On green, succulent vegetation use chlordan or chlorinated camphene. Apply one quart of 50 percent emulsifiable chlordan spray or 30 pounds of five percent dust per acre. If chlorinated camphere is used, apply one and one-half quarts of 50 percent emulsion concentrate as a spray, or 40 pounds of five percent dust per acre. The effects of chlordan and chlorinated ' camphene will last three to 10 days. However, both leave a residue which may be excreted in the milk of cows grazing in treated fields. Where vegetation is sparse or dry, use benzene hexa- chloride or poisoned bran bait. For benzene hexachloride, apply a spray of 0.3 pound of gamma isomer per acre as five pounds of six percent gamma isomer wett- able, or 30 pounds of one percent gamma dust. This material has a disagreeable musty odor usually repellant to bees and livestock. Chlor dan, chlorinated camphene, and benzene hexachloride may be applied as dusts or sprays, from either airplane or ground equipment. Poisoned bran bait may also be used as a control. It is cheap to use, but is hard to apply and may be dangerous to livestock if stored or put on improperly. Iowa Campaign Opens Iowa Republicans officially opened their victory campaign last week at their State Convention, one of the largest^ and the most enthusiastic gatherings which the party has held in Iowa in many years. The Convention heard a stirring keynote address by United States Senator George A. Wilson, adopted a strong platform and nominated 34 year old Helvin D. Synhorst. of Orange City, for the office of Secretary of State. Synhorst, a veteran of World War II and a lawyer, will add much to the Republican state ticket. Those attending the convention could not help but be impressed by the party harmony which prevailed and the general feeling that this year would see a sweeping Republican victory, not only in Iowa, but throughout the nation. The State Committee Whitney Gillilland, of Glemvaod. will continue to head the State Republican Central Committee as a result of his re-election as Chairman immediately following the Convention. Mrs. Gertrude Wilharm of Sumner was re-elected vice chairman and W. Keith Hamill, secretary-treasurer. Four changes were made on the committee. S. R. Torgeson of Lake Mills is the new Sixth District Chairman, while the vice- chairman is Mrs. O. G. Clause, of Jeffer-, son. The new Third District Chairman is Boyd G. Hayes, of Charles City, while the new Eighth District Vice Chairman is Miss Elizabeth Thei. of Sibley. . The committee plans an aggressive campaign in the state. Electors Iowa's present governor and Iowa's next governor will have the honor of casting the state's two presidential elector-at-large votes this year. The State Convention selected Governor Robert D. Blue and William S. Beardsley, the Re publican candidate for Governor, after the committee and nomina tions had recommended them. share in benefits derived from the new practices. Cosh Lease Not Affected The effects of new methods on the farm rental bargain will vary according to the type of lease used, Arthur points out. Even within the same type of lease, individual pairs of landlords and tenants will handle the same practice differently. Straight cash farm leases are affected least. In the cash lease, the tenant pays the landlord so much cash rent per acre or a lump sum for the annual use of the farm. Arthur says that if new methods affect the cash lease, all other types of leases also will be affected at the same point.

Total fatalities for May nearly doubled the April record, with 51 in Iowa against 52 traffic deaths last April. The property damage totals took a similar upswing, with a May figure of $2,213,899 as against $1,649,800 for April. Traffic accidents jumped 452 for the month, with 3.224 recorded for May. and 2.772 for the previous month. Drivers and owners in volved in these accidents totaled 8,026 for May and 6,810 for April, and 1,289 were injured. Sgt. Kermith Rhoades of the Highway Patrol, has given out figures showing the contribution of Patrol District No. 10 to the state totals. Property damage in the district totaled $111,012. The damage was the result of 176 accidents involving 423 drivers and owners. Damage in Dubuque county, which amounted to $35,360 was the largest in the district. Allamakee county had 19 accidents which amounted to $13,430 in property damage. , Start pullets otv a self-feeding program of whole grain and a concentrate by the time they are 10 to 12 weeks of age. says W. R Whitfield, Iowa State College extension poultryman. Chickens easily acquire new habits while they are young. Later, a change in feeding habits may cause ill effects, including going off feed. This results in a production slump whether it is in eggs or meat. Whitfield reports that the cafeteria method of feeding is the most successful one followed by flock owners. It is securing the highest production for Iowa Record Demonstration Flock owners and is saving them much labor formerly required to mix feeds or to hand feed. 26 Percent Concentrate Whitfield also says that if there is enough self-feeder space, the birds will eat adequately without needing a wet mash to sharpen their appetites. He suggests self-feeding a 26 percent protein concentrate grower for young stock along with whole oats and shelled corn, each in separate troughs. Replace the growing concentrate with a breeder concentrate when pullets reach laying age at four and one-half to five months. The breeder concentrate is used with whole grain through out the laying year. The advantages of this feeding plan are shown by comparing re suits of. flock owners who used a high protein mash with grain and those who fed an 18 to 20 percent, or low, protein mash last year. Users of the concentrate had an average production of 189 eggs per bird, compared with 174 for those who fed a low protein feed. Lowers Feed Cost Another advantage of feeding a high protein concentrate is that feed costs are lowered. The flock owner can make use of more home grown grains which he can produce cheaper than the price he has to pay for feed in the bag. This feeding program also produces meat efficiently as is shown by tests with 400 straight run White Rock chicks at the Floris experimental farm in Wapello County earlier this summer. Cockerels there weighed 2.3 pounds at eight weeks of age and the pullets weighed two pounds. At 12 weeks the cockerels weighed 4.1 pounds and the pullets 3.25 pounds. ATTEND THE Ossian Harvest Festival Wednesday, August if MORNING, AFTERNOON AND EVENING PROGRAMS FARM LEASES MAY GET OUT OF DATE Provisions of your farm lease may be out of date and may need revising if you are to keep in step with the near-revolutionary changes in farm practices that have come about the past 10 years. In a study of the problem, I. W. Arthur, farm economist at Iowa State College, found that farming methods have changed too rapidly for local tradition and custom to supply the answers to new farm rental problems arising from technique advances. Fertilizers, Sprays Some of the recent changes in farm practices affecting farm rentals include the recent boom in the tise of commercial fertilizers and limestone; use of chemicals to control weeds and insect pests such as corn borers, grasshoppers and flies; conservation practices, including contouring, terracing and grassed waterways; the use of expensive farm machinery such as combines, balers, field cutters and tractors, including custom work; and the greater use of new crops such as soybeans and bromegrass. New methods in farming usually call for new decisions between landlord and tenant, Arthur says. They must decide how much each will furnish and how they will A new type mechanical tree planter now being tested may make possible increased tree planting for erosion control, wildlife cover and timber crops in Iowa. The mechanical planter gives promise of cutting labor costs and speeding reforestation in areas where many trees are to be planted. Treated oats and barley seed left over from this spring's planting should not be fed to livestock, says C. S. Reddy, Iowa State College plant pathologist. Seed which has been treated with either Ceresan M or New Improved Ceresan contains mercury and lead and can kill animals. Total milk production is lagging behind last year's output.
