Iowa may have reflectorized maximum safe speed markers on highway curves—but not until next year. The highway commission has authorized the installation of the signs, which are used in many states, but as yet there has been no actual start on the program. The signs would show the speetl at which a curve could be safely negotiated. The commission hopes to complete marking approximately 2,000 miles of no passing zones on principal Iowa highways this summer. When that work is done, white center-lines will be painted on about 500 miles of bituminous surfaced highways which have not had centerline markings. Fund Surplus The employment security commission reports that during the past 10 years a reserve of 80 million dollars has accumulated in the unemployment insurance fund. Since 1937, Iowa employers have paid out $27,637,659 to unemployed workers while paying in more than 107 million dollars. Under Iowa law employers pay a tax on payrolls of firms employing eight or more persons. The employee does not contribute to the job insurance ffund. Employment has remained at a high level since.the end of the war, accounting for the surplus in funds. Half Million In Refunds State tax commission records show that Iowa governmental units entitled to sales and use tax refunds probably will receive more than $500,000 this fiscal year. However, many state units are not interested in refunds, apparently, and have not requested rebates. The state highway commission is an exception.' It is estimated that the highway commission probably will be eligible for refund of more than $100,000. The 1947 general assembly passed legisilation making governmental sub-divisions and agencies eligible for sales and use tax refunds on materials purchased for state use. Since the act became effective July 1, 1947, a total of $369,716 has been refunded, according to tax commission records. Another Tax Record The Iowa Dairy Industry commission reports that collection of the butterfnt tax to promote the sale of butter may reach a new all- time high this year. The one-cent- a-pound tax collected during the first 15 days of June, plus voluntary payment of the tax the last half of the month will total $140,000. The former record was $135,000 set last year.

Corn grown on "poor" land can give just as good feedlot gains as that grown on "rich" land—when fed along with a balanced ration of protein and other supplements, tests at Iowa State College show. * * * • . The nation's milk (low for the remainder of the year may fall somewhat below last year. * « * * * Fall legume seedlings may be a total loss if grasshoppers aren't killed before they get a chance to feast upon the new seedlings. * * . « . Corn prices today ate high compared with other grains and wheat millfeeds. Farmers will find it pays to use a maximum of low-cost feeds in balancing their rations.
