THURSDAY. APRIL 30, 1830. ffwAKEE INDIAN MOUNDS Tjo BE SUBJECTED TO SURVEY L„ eternal sloop of the North Lrican Mound Builders, who cen- 5 ago inhabited the northeast hill luntry of Iowa, is about to be rudely lurbod by the progress of modern ijllzotion. tgf years an unimproved country ,ti provided the chief access to the Han mound region in the extreme rihcnstern corner of Iowa. About • te years ago, the road was added Iowa's primary road system by the «a highway commission, and desig- 1 as No. 182. rdls week, Dr. Charles H. Koyes, ,te archaeologist and professor of tocology at Cornell College, Mt. rnon, Iowa, urgently requested the vn state planning board to make ssible an immediate entrance by ar- seoiogists into the Allamakee coun- Indian mounds before road builds reach certain mounds over which ends primary road No. 182. Tie highway commission last month «ardod a contract to Nolan Bros., J c „ of Minneapolis, for grading No. ! from Lansing northwest to New bin, on (he Minnesota state line, iere the road will join with Minnea road No. 26 extending northward mg the Mississippi river. iV 'ork of clearing the 816-mile highly and grubbing out old brush and Se stumps began April 1. The grad\ project is to be completed by Nov. is scheduled to be followed by Lei surfacing. |)r. Keycs is anxious to enter the ds before the road grading crews them, in an effort to preserve Inaining archaeological relics lest |y be destroyed. Some six mounds known to be in the path of the road, Dr. Keycs said. |ie also asks help in entering other Samakec county mounds on a road Km Waukon Junction to Harpers rry, scheduled by the highway common for grading. No contract for .i work has as yet been let, accord- i to the highway commission. Director Ross H. Matson of the Iowa planning board stated he would j everything possible to hasten a foject now under way under plan- Jig board supervision, known as the jecreational and Historical Project." In addition to considerable recrea- area work made possible by |eral Works Progress Administra- Junds through the planning 1, a part of the general project ; to make possible further archae- igieal research in Iowa, to be direct- f by Dr. Kcyes. few WPA relief workers may be Ad. Most of the mound digging, jivever, will be done by archaeolo- i as the excavations reach the in- r sanctuaries where valuable histor- ! relics are likely to be unearthed. he Central States company has |ded the old dam site at Steamboat Wc to the slate of Iowa. This site, jig on the banks of the Iowa river ithe west, comprises a tract of about pr acres and is admirably located ' a wayside park for public recrea- Steamboat Rock is located in |rdin county. |M.

State officials who have just returned from nine district conferences attended by more than 1,200 county leaders declared that the soil conservation program was the chief interest of the Iowa farmer today. "Iowa's Legislature next year will write the legislation out of which will come the permanent program for Iowa, and the Iowa farmer must have a part in planning this legislation," Francis Johnson, president of the Iowa federation declared. "Our principal goal is parity income for the farmers. The farmers' income dropped from 19 billion to five and one-half billion a lew years ago. The farmers' income last year was about eight billion. This means that the farmer must obtain a seven billion dollar gain in income before the goal of parity income, 15 billion, is reached. This means an average increase of more than $1,000 for each larmer in the United Stales." Officials stated that counties throughout the state were holding meetings this week for the purpose of assisting in the soil conservation program, and at the same time planning organization activity. Membership campaigns are on this week in 22 counties. Indications are that Iowa will show a good gain in membership for 1936. Counties are showing a definite increase in membership where county campaigns are held. It was very evident from the statements made and resolutions adopted by the county leaders at the district meetings that farmers today recognize the absolute need of an active supporting membership in a general farm organization to carry out an effective program in the securing of the parity income which means over $1,000 more per year for the average farmer in Iowa. Officials staled that at district meetings there was much interest in efforts under way through the national organization lo obtain a fair disposition of the processing tax money which had been held in escrow and in many cases turned back to processors in recent months. Farm Bureau officials urged that farmers who have not yet figured out how the new program of soil conservation will apply to their farms, get in touch with the county Farm Bureau office or local committeemen for assistance. MINUTE MEN ORGANIZATION MEETING TODAY AT WAUKON The Minute Men organization of the county will hold a meeting at the Farm Bureau office. Waukon. Thursday evening. April 30th. Mr. Trottnow of the state Farm Bureau Federation will be present to meet with the group at this time. The minute men organization has been set up in every county as part of (he state Farm Bureau and county Farm Bureau organization. The organization is completing a setup for the county which comprises a representative from each school district. An organization of this kind can be of the utmost value lo the agricultural industry, for it provides the means of getting and disseminating valuable information about what the organization is doing for agriculture and also keeps them familiar with problems and questions of a legislative nature which are of vital interest to the fanners. My friends say I am crazy, but I still insist that Hoover will be the republican candidate, or if not the candidate himself will dictate the nomination, which amounts to the same thing, says "On the Air" in the Independence Conservative. Don't forget that the powerful moneyed interests are behind Hoover and they can name the republican candidate any time they want to. FARMERS MAY CO-OPERATE IN GAME MANAGEMENT IN IOWA It comes as a shock to one's feeling of security to recall that civilizations as great in their days as the one in which we live today went down to oblivion, says the West Union Union. It is also well to remember that the contributing factor in each case was error. It might also bo said that the erring nations erred not because they did not know better, but because knowing better, they did not do better.

Mghss Yfomwy "Where Quality Counts" POSTVILLE, IOWA For years the American people have taken wildlife for granted, thinking it only a part of their natural heritage and little or no thought was given it. As a result, due to the thoughtless destruction of their natural homes, many species of game birds and animals as well as fur-bearing animals, once plentiful in Iowa, have slowly dwindled before the advance of civili- ation. in recognition of this, the State Conservation Commission of Iowa has recently adopted a Game Management Program which it is thought will perpetuate all species of wildlife as well as meet the approval of farmers and sportsmen. The present plan is the outgrowth of the experience gained through operation of the plan adopted by the former Fish and Game Commission, and is designed to overcome the shortcomings of the former plan. To perpetuate game, it is necessary that the things which provide them with food and cover be restored on the land in order that they can propagate under natural conditions. Under the Iowa Game Management Plan only such lands as the farmer cannot make use of in his regular agricultural practices are utilized for the purpose of raising game. This can be accomplished by fencing waste areas; allowing the shrubs and grasses lo grow unburned and ungraz- cd by livestock; planting shrubs, trees and growing grasses which will provide cover and food in fence corners, barren hillsides, marshes, sloughs and eroded ditches, etc.; planting food patches at strategic locations near game cover in order that game can get food at all times without unnecessarily exposing themselves to predators and the severe winter weather. t In order to speed up this work, the Conservation Commission has set up a Game Division under the supervision of a Superintendent of Game and the state has been divided into eight districts of from ten to sixteen counties each, each district being in charge of an Assistant Superintendent of Game, who, together with the Conservation Officers, works with the farmers, sportsmen, 4-H Clubs, CCC camps, etc., in improving the environment for wildlife. While game is a product of the land, its presence there is due entirely to the environment that it finds there. It lies within the power of the farmer to have his farm attractive or unat tractive for game. Therefore, it is necessary that any plan of game man agemcnt first of all must be attractive to the farmer in order that he will be interested in producing an annual game crop and then control the take of game from his farm, seeing that only Ihe surplus is removed and that a sufficient seed stock is left for the next year. In order to encourage and help the farmer in his work, upon application to the Conservation Commission, a representative will check over the farm and make the necessary recommendations to improve it for wildlife of all kinds. The farmer then enters into a cooperative agreement with the Conservation Commission to follow out the game management practices recommended for his farm and to give his written permission lo sportsmen to hunt on his land during the open season when a surplus of game is present. If and when the recommended improvements are carried out, the land is posted by the Conservation Commission with game management area signs and a trespass permit book is furnished at no cost to the farmer. When this has been done, the farmer; then has control of the unauthorized trespass on his farm as provided in Section 1709-el, Chapter 86 of the Code of Iowa. Anyone who hunts thereon without authorization violates this section and is punishable by the same fine or imprisonment as provided for any violation of the Conservation Laws. Game management is not merely another scheme to aid the sportsman to kill. It seeks to encourage wildlife of all kinds on the farm; song birds as well as game birds and fur-bearing animals, not only in order that they may be shot or trapped for sport and profit, but that the farmer may realize the practical benefits that may be derived from them, and the sportsman will know when he sees a game management area that a real effort is being made to improve his sport along this line of recreation and that it is his duty to respect the farmer's rights on his farm and to co-operate with him in perpetuating wildlife for all times Farmers who are interested in improving the environment for wildlife on their farms, as well as sportsmen who are anxious to improve their own sport by helping their farmer friends build up the game supply on their farms are urged to write the State Conservation Commission, Des Moines, Iowa.

FRED STRAATE. FARMER MAY LIGHT AND HEAT HOME WITH HIS CORN STALKS Kansas City, Mo.—Prof. Ellis I. Ful mer, Iowa State College chemist, sees the possibility that the farmer of the future may light and heat his house with his own corn stalks. He told the American chemical,so ciety here "in a region where 30 per cent of the land is planted to corn, a circle within an eight mile radius would produce enough com stalks to supply a city of 80,000 inhabitants with gas." A ton of stalks yield from 10,000 to 20,000 cubic feet of gas when subjected to a fermentation process, he said. For Representative I hereby announce myself as a cam didate for the office of State Representative from the 90th district of Iowa, on the Democratic ticket, sub ject to the will of the voters at the June primaries, and respectfully so licit your support and co-operation.

MEYER'S Four-County Hatchery NOTICE OF EXPIRATION Iowa people soon will be struggling" with an annual problem—the dandelion. Here is a suggestion from a Des Moines citizen who speaks from his own experience. He says do not bum off the dead grass on the lawn as that makes it hard for the grass to get a start, but is easy for the dandelions. Burning, he maintains, destroys a layer of humus which retards, grass growth and gives the dandelions just what they need—more sunlight.
