"Pre-school age children cannot be expected to distinguish between the harmful and the non- harmful elements of the out-of- doors," says Myrtle Hewitt extension home economist. "That's one good reason for confining them to a safe area when they are alone outside. "To be sure that an area is safe, horticulturists say it's Important to watch what has been planted because harmless looking plants can turn out to be toxic to curious pre-school tasters. "Among the plants to keep out of children's play areas, the castor bean is the worst offender. Its seed is poisonous, but the ornamental plant is commonly grown in Iowa. Horticulturists encourage all homeowners to cut off the seed heads of the castor beans and destroy them. This will not damage the plant, but it may save a child's life. "Other plants to keep children away from this time of the year are immature fruits of ground cherries, horsechestnuts, buckeyes, immature green potatoes or the green peeling from potatoes exposed to the sun. These all might have a toxic effect and perhaps fatal if eaten in too great a quantity."

Kirchhoff, chairman of the Humboldt Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation (ASC) County Committee said today. Diversion on farms will be 20 percent of thp feed grain base and program payments will be based on the formula used in 1966: 30 cents a bushel price support payment times the farms projected yield times one half the feed grain base. As In 1966. there will be no payment for 20 percent diversion except on small farms. .,,,i Diversion payments tor small farms .are exactly the same as for 1966. Farms with feed grain bases of 25 acres or less will again be eligible for diversion payments equal to 20 percent of support (loan plus price support payment) for the 20 percent of base acreage and 50 percent of support on any additional acres diverted, up to the total base. Therefore, producers who have bases of more than 25 acres and who divert 25 acres and plant no feed grains will be eligible for diverstion payments of five acres at 20 percent of support and 20 acres at 50 percent of support. For example: A farm with a 40 acre base could divert 25 acres for payment and raise no feed grains. After maintaining the conserving base, soybeans could be planted on the remainder. Conserving base features continue as in 1966. However, conserving bases may be appealed to the county committee and will be given carefull consideration. Substitution of soybeans will continue to be eligible for plant- Ing on permitted acreage without loss of feed grain price support payments. Projected yields for the 1967 program will be calculated on the basis of the preceding years. 1961 through 1965. In the 1966 program yields were calculated on the years 1960 through 1964. "With feed grain supply and demand in near-perfect balance today, but with increased pro-, duetion needs In 1967," Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. freeman announced today, "Of 1967 Feed Grata Program provisions Is designed .' to divert about half as many acres as in 1966. "We have made the 1967 program decisions with utmost care and after thorough study. Feed grain crops are now safe from serious freeze damage. The October crop report has given us the necessary information about U. S. production. We have estimates of foreign production that are probably as accurate as we will be able to get. The Canadian grain crop has been confirmed as a record. The Russian crop Is a record. European crops are good. As to utilization, we now have good estimates for the past year and for the year ahead. Therefore, we have proceeded to make the decisions and announce them now to enable farmers to make their plans."
