Representatives of nine Iowa youth organizations have developed a plan for proposed high school participation in this year's Christian Rural Oversees Program (CROP) A tentative goal of 20 acres of "relief cereal" has been set and collections are to be made one week preceding the adult, house- to-house canvas scheduled for the Thanksgiving week. The Iowa-processed cereal is to be purchased for distribution among the starving under-nourished of Europe. It is the cheapest, most nutritious one dish meal yet to be devised by food specialists. It costs approximately one cent a serving. CROP is sponsored by the Catho lie Rural Life, Lutheran World Relief and Church World Service composed of some 30 protestant church organizations. Kirk Fox editor of Successful Farming, is chairman of the general Iowa CROP committee. Albert Farmer is the director. Those attending the organization meeting and the organizations they represented were: Janet Officer, Ft. Dodge, Y-Teens; Doris Blair, Fairfield.

Canada thistle is the weed most feared .by Allamakee county farmers, consequently most of their control efforts are turned in its direction. Other weeds which qualify for payment credit are bindweed, quack grass, perennial peppergrnss, leafy spurge, horse nettle, Russian knapweed, and perennial sow thistle. In order to receive payment for weed control the practice must have been approved for the farm and payment cannot be claimed in excess of the amount approved. The rate of payment for the use of sodium chlorate is six cents per pound for material used. This is applied as a powder or spray. Sodium chlorate may be injurious to livestock when used in pastures, and has the added disadvantage of rendering the land sterile for other vegetation for some time. The most popular chemical is 2,4 -D which is not injurious to livestock and does not sterilize the soil. The payment rate on 2,4 -D is $1,50 per pound of acid ingredient. This will carry according to the brand used and the percentage of active ingredients. Regardless of the type of material used the farmer must present evidence of purchase to the AAA committee. Such evidence should indicate the brand, amount, and percentage.

FEEDERS WILL BE HIGH COMING FALL Iowa cattle feeders may have' n tough time this year buying livestock at a price reasonable enough for them to profit from their winter feeding operations. Demand for cattle, lambs and hogs for breeding and feeding will be strong this fall if crop prospects continue good, says Iowa State College farm economist Francis Kutish. What's more, producers wanting to buy such stock will face strong competition from packers. Fewer feeders lambs and cattle will be available to buy than a year ago. Contract Price Up Early reports from Wyoming on feeder cattle contract prices indicate considerable increases over last year's prices. Kutish feels that there is a real chance of Corn Belt farmers bidding up the prices of feeders this fall to a point where most of the benefits from larger corn supplies and strong consumer demand for meat will go to ranchers in the form of high feeder cattle prices. ^GLEAMING! g BEAUTY FOR p, Floors and ggk Furniture 0*m 4-Hour Vamis Varnish your own floors-* finish furniture like » profit sionil!
