NYBERG'S : ARM and HOME SUPPLY Postville, Iowa CLERMONT LUTHERAN PARISH A. O. Nesset, Pastor Sunday, August 15:—Highland services at 10:30 a. m. Wednesday, August 18: Clermont Mission Society, p. m. - West at 2:15 METERS Emmetsburg has installed new parking meters. The first man to "forget" to put a coin in the slot was Mayor R. W. Heise. New methods of controlling weeds on rented farms are bringing about revisions in landlord- tenant agreements. The traditional practice of the owner furnishing materials and the tenant supplying the labor to fight weeds is being modified in some farm leases, I. W. Arthur, agricultural economist at Iowa State Col lege, points out. If large patches of noxious weeds are present when a new tenant moves on a farm and custom spray ing is necessary to control them, many landlords now are paying for the custom work and materials the first year. The landlord has been furnishing all the materials and possibly some additional incentive for the tenant to get rid of small patches of weeds where only hand work is involved. However, if noxious weeds show up while the tenant is living on the farm, the customary arrangement is for the landlord to furnish the materials""and for the tenant to supply the labor to fight new weeds. This, Arthur says, is true with both share and cash leases. Some single-farm owners who rent the farm on a crop share basis have been purchasing half interest in spraying equipment and machinery. However, institutional owners and professional farm managers with a string of farms, hesitate to buy a share of the spraying equipment. One advantage for the tenant to own the spraying equipment is that he can do custom spraying and spray his own livestock. In-crop or pre-emergence, spraying presents a different problem than the conventional methods of controlling weeds. Controlling ordinary weeds by pre-emergence or in-crop spraying may be a substitution for one or more of the cultivations of corn, Arthur points out. While the practice is so new that no general custom has been established, Arthur thinks that with a crop share lease the landlord would be paying for part of the old job of cultivating corn if he furnished half of the pre-emergence spray material. However, he says that it is certainly worth a landlord's* efforts to control weeds. Therefore, he may chip in to some extent on pre- emergence spray materials if he thinks his weed problem is serious. progress of the child in school. A little correction now will prevent a lot of work and trouble later on. Parents should insist on maintaining the highest health standards in their families. This can be done through proper rest, proper diet, periodic physical check-ups and seeing to it that each child in the family has been vaccinated and immunized. " FUEL OIL TANKS SHOULD BE FILLED THIS SUMMER DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH URGES IMMUNIZATION Sounding a warning against the danger of an increase in communicable diseases when school starts, the Iowa State Department of Health urged parents of all school children to accept the responsibility of booster 'Shots if the child has had the benefit of prior vaccination and immunization, or complete immunization and vaccination before school begins. All children should have been immunized and vaccinated during the first year of life. Having your child immunized and vaccinated before starting him to school is as important as buying him new clothes and books and pencils. Every child has a right to the protection that is to be had through the vaccination and immunization that the family physician has to offer. Physical and dental defects can be discovered in time for the necessary corrective measures to be made before school starts if you take your child to your family physician' for a physical examination now. Deficiencies in eyesight and hearing often times retard the Renovating Bluegrass Pasture Is Important The failure of many spring legume seedings makes the job of improving the old bluegrass pastures even more important this year, says E. S. Dyas, agronomist at Iowa State College. Renovated bluegrass pastures can do much to carry livestock through next summer, particularly when other feed supplies run short. , Liming should be done now, says Dyas, both to correct soil acidity and to allow time for fall plowing. Applications made before plowing make it easier for lime trucks to get onto the fields. Plowing or disking prevents lime loss by washing this winter. Either shallow plowing or disking on the contour may be used to tear up the sod; Dyas says not to worry about hurting the grass—it will come back soon enough. Disking on the contour is sufficient where there are poor stands of grass or where fields are badly cut up with gullies. In addition to mixing the lime with the soil, it is a good start on seedbed preparation. When introducing bromegrass. Dyas recommends plowing late in the fall to retard the bluegrass un til the brome can get a better start. Mixtures of bromegrass and sweetclover or brome and alfalfa can be seeded to particular advantage in August, or early September in the southern part of the state. In this way they will provide full grazing next year. However, red and alsike clover cannot be seeded in late summer because of the lack of moisture. It may be warm weather now, but Iowa farmers should begin filling domestic fuel-oil tanks. This advice comes from Dale Hull, Iowa State 'extension agricultural engineer. Roads are much better now, ant* your oil man can fill the barrels more easily when the sun is shining than when the snow is falling next winter. More important is the fact that filling fuel tanks now helps oil supplies build up a backlog and avert heavy demands in early winter. As most people remember, critical situations developed last winter when too many wanted oil at one time. Hull recommends checking the fuel tanks when they are low to determine if any moisture has accumulated since they were last cleaned. Filling the tank completely full also prevents any possibility of the inside of the tank rusting. Home heating plants should be checked and any repairs that oil- burning furnaces or stoves might need should be ordered before the heating season begins, says Hull. Loose connections that cause leaks should be fixed now to prevent fire hazards later. LENSING'S "BETTER" USED CARS '47 Chcv. "FleetHne" Aero—Radio, heater, visor. 2-Tone Blue. '47 Chev.
