Van Vlack, extension agricultural engineer at Iowa State College. He urges all farmers to build adequate crib room to store the 1948 crop. He points out that corn is the basis of Iowa's farm wealth and that federal surveys show that the corncribs in the state are inadequate to hold this year's crop. This presents a serious problem because the only place that corn can be stored this year is on the farm. Commercial storage facilities are short and it is too late to build terminal storage space or county elevators. Pays For Self Van Vlack says that a good crib will pay for itself in less time than any other farm building. Each year, through losses in feed value and the lowering of market value because of spoilage and rat damage, many farmers lose enough to pay for a mode/n crib. Still greater are losses sustained by farmers who do not have storage facilities necessary to carry large surplus crops over into periods of scarcity and higher prices. A farmer who doesn't have cribs eligible for sealing this year may take a serious loss. Corn prices at local elevators last week were down 15 to 20 cents below the expected loan price. Government Loan Van Vlack says that proper storage will enable farmers to keep corn for two years if need be. This may be necessary if farmers take advantage of government loan and purchase agreement programs. He urges farmers to take a government loan on their corn to insure more .orderly marketing and prevent a serious price break. Agricultural engineers at the college .have prepared a new bulletin, AEP 9, to aid farmers in meeting the corn storage problem. It features the pole-type temporary crib and a semi-permanent corncrib. Plans and bills of materials are available for either by writing to the Agricultural Extension Service, Iowa State College. Bulletin AEP 9 is free, AE 66 is a list of farm building plans including corncribs and is available free. Each plan costs 15 cents. keted from late November to early January to consider producing heavier hogs and heading for a February market. Prices should be rising at that time, with less prospect of the strikes that troubled hog raisers last winter and spring. Prospects of a larger spring pig crop in 1949 should bring a sharper than usual seasonal drop in hog prices next fall, Kutish believes. However, there'll still be money in hogs.

East Clermont, services at 11:00 a. m. BIG HILL Harold Yohe of Mediapolis, reports one hill of corn that produced four big stalks and seven big ears of corn.

Quaife, extension animal husbandman at Iowa State College. Dumping a lot of new corn into the pig's ration abruptly may cause digestive disturbances. However, Quaife says that there is nothing to the hearsay that new corn can cause cholera in pigs. He recommends feeding oats along with the new corn, starting out with a small amount of new corn and gradually increasing the amount as pigs become accustomed to the new ration. Hogging Down Hogging down corn . is decreasing in popularity, Quaife says. Better yields and the use of mechanical pickers make it better to husk corn and then feed it. Hogging down corn is most satisfactory with lighter pigs weighing 100 to 150 pounds. Heavier pigs will do better if confined to the pig yard, Quaife says. He reminds farmers turning their pigs in the cornfield to be sure to provide shelter for the pigs. Flu can easily develop if this precaution isn't taken. PEAK IN HOG MARKETING TO BE LATER THIS YEAR The peak flow of hogs to mar ket is likely to be later than/| usual this year, but farmers won't have to take the price beating experienced last February, thinks Francis Kutish, farm economist at Iowa State College. Hogs from the 1948 spring pig crop probably will be held longer than usual so they can be fed to heavier weights on new corn. This should pay out, says the economist. In fact, returns from feeding corn to fatten late spring pigs to heavier weights will probably be greater than if the corn were saved and fed to hogs next summer and fall. For this reason, Kutish advises farmers who have late spring pigs that would normally be mar- Here's the Famous Coleman OIL HEATER That Gives you f DIRECT RADIANT HEAT V CIRCULATING WARMTH - -' - I 1 CnCOUTESKEATTWOWN MOMS -6NES "NOT ST0VT HOT, T00I • AutMMtto Pusl CMtrall • Automatic Draft Csjatratl • Low W»— Fmi SavwT • A MM.

The homstead checks amount to $8,608,041 and the military tax service credits total $792,746. The state reimburses local governments for tax exemptions allowed war veterans up to 25 mills. Manufacturing Employment The employment security commission estimates that total manufacturing employment in Iowa has reached 153,000, s a gain of 900 workers over July and l',700 more th#n the same month last year. Because of normal seasonal factors the canning industry added 1,000 workers between July and August. At the same time, spasmodic labor difficulties in the meat packing industry lost nearly 1,000 workers. The most striking gains in employment were noted in non-electrical machinery, up 5,250, while the most significant drop in employment was 2,600 fewer workers in the food products classification. Draft Registrants The 145,642 who registered for the postwar draft in Iowa exceed­ ed earlier, estimates by more than 15,000. Draft officials had estimated that about 130,000 would register, but the number of out- of-state registrants who signed up in Iowa brought the total figure higher than estimated. Brig. Gen. Charles H. Grahl, head of selective service in the state, says that 37,009 are subject to induction. The group includes single men, single non-veterans and single non-fathers. Hereafter, all men must register with their nearest draft board within five days after their 18th birthday. KILLED A fall-plowing accident took the life of 63-year old Harry Sarvis of Avoca last week. When he did not come home from work, investigation revealed that his tractor had plunged down a 20 foot embankment and Mr. Sarvis had died from a combination of shock and injury. SYRUP At Tama, Johnny Johnson contends that when Mr. and Mrs. Soger Dobson moved out of a dwelling owned by him, following eviction notice, they smeared the walls and floors of two rooms with chocolate syrup. m I SAFEST PLACE for your harvest funds is in the bank where your money is protected and insured every hour of the day.
