Miss Meyer will visit these persons, taking case histories and inviting those exposed to tuberculosis to have skin tests. Chest X- rays also will be taken if their skin reacts to the test, an indication that tuberculosis germs have at some time entered the body. • Family physicians will make the skin tests, stated Dr. J. W. Myers. Allamakee County Medical Society president, who with Dr. L. H.

The survey will be financed by the Allamakee County Tuberculosis Association and the State Health Department. It also is sponsored by the County Medical Society and the Iowa Tuberculosis and .Health Association. Christmas Seal funds help pay the program costs. Timothy Seed Crop Is Smallest Since 1934 Little ads with big results—our Want Ads. HARDWARE PLUMBING HEATING Timothy seed production is the smallest this year since 1934, while alsiko clover seed production is up, according to Ralph Krenzin, Iowa State College extension agronomist. ' The United States Department of Agriculture forecasts that timothy seed production will be down on a nation-wide scale. Estimates are for the 1948 crop to be only 40 per cent of the 1947 crop. Krenzin gives several reasons for the drop. A favorable spring planting season this year resulted in increased diversion of hay land to grain crops. Relatively low prices for timothy seed last year and poor stands due to winter -kill also contributed to reduced acreage in timothy. In Iowa, where about half of the seed is usually produced, winter-kill was very heavy. While alsike clover seed production is up for the nation, Iowa and Minnesota will not produce as much this year, Krenzin points out. All other states will bring the total alsike clover seed production to 12 percent above the. 1947 crop. Krenzin says that the decrease in the Hawkeye state's production is due to winter-kill, the dry period during early summer and insect damage. Sell! Swap!
