Of the number, 317,392 are estimated to be urban property claims and 123,430 on rural property. Records show that the increase in urban claims has exceeded the rural increases.

NYBERG'S FARM & HOME SUPPLY Postville, Iowa wmmmsmsssmmsmmmsui Driveways and large temporary round cribs are poor places to store this year's valuable corn crop. C. H. Van Vlack, Iowa State College extension agricultural en gineer. said this week. He points out that it has cost Iowa farmers more money to grow this year's corn than any- other corn crop in the history of the state. Farm production costs were highest on record this year. Best insurance against loss of money already tied up in each bushel of corn is proper storage space. Van Vlack says. Large Round Cribs Too often, large round cribs are not a safe place for storing corn for two important reasons, Van Vlack says. First, the temporary round cribs usually have too large a diameter for safe storage. Second, temporary round cribs are hard to cover. Then spoilage may occur because of moisture and snow blowing in. Driveways are hazardous corn storage places unless proper precautions are taken. The danger of storing corn in the driveway- comes from lack of ventilation. A 10 -foot driveway filled with corn along with an eight-foot crib on both sides actually makes a continuous crib 26 feet wide, Van Vlack points out. That kind of storage will cause spoilage. Double Walls Help Driveways can be made satisfactory by constructing walls a foot in from the double crib walls. That affords air to circulate freely between the three eightrfoot cribs of corn. Be sure there is a floor in the driveway, Van Vlack says. He also points out that the driest corn should be put in the driveway because even with the additional walls it does not have as free access to air movement as the rest of the crib. He recommends that farmers needing additional corn storage space should consider either a rectangular temporary pole-type crib or a semi-permanent crib. Plans for both may be obtained from the Agricultural Extension Service at Iowa State College for a fee of 15 cents per plan sheet A new bulletin featuring both types of corncrib may be obtained free, Van Vlack says.

There is a sufficient supply of all crops to feed livestock and provide an ample storage for human consumption. OUR HATS ARE OFF TO OUR FARMER FRIENDS. They have produced an abundance to feed the people of this nation and have provided for those hungering millions of lands less fortunate. We hope our part in supplying them with needed equipment, service, clothing and all other items carried in our lines has helped substantially to make this a successful season for them. And we hope that this role of being their source of supply may merit a continuance of their good will, to the end that we may serve them in the future.
