0IDNE8DAY, OCTOBER M, IMS. Not Relax Fight n Flies In Cold Weather It's never too late to kill flies, -ys Harold Gunderson, extension nomologist at the Iowa State Allege. The anti-fly campaign ould not be relaxed in the home i in food handling establishments ven though cold weather is aid- tig ;n reducing the pests, he main- 'ns. The complete program of paint- -g screens,, practicing good snni- atton measures (and spraying with DT should be carried out to re­ duce the flies. Special Emphasis should be given to homes, offices and food handling establishments where higher temperatures permit flies to live and breed even during cold weather. Communities that have been disappointed with their fly control campaign' should review the past year's program and try to correct the- errors, Gunderson says. Fertilizer that cakes because of wet weather or exposure should be put through a hammermill or pulverizer to break up the chunks before it is spread.

IOWA PAGE SEVHL Early Picking Of Corn Holds Risks Favorable conditions for cribbing corn early this fall may back Are on farmers who jump the gun and start putting this year's crop in too soon. While corn is maturing early, storing during warm, mild weath er requires considerably drier corn to prevent spoilage, according to C. H. Van Vlack, Iowa State Col lege extension agricultural engineer. He recalls 1917 when early corn maturity and storage followed by warm weather later caused con siderable damage to that year's crop. Iowa fanners had to remove corn from cribs and spread is out to dry in pastures and fields during early November in an effort to salvage some of the spoiling corn. Dries in Field Best Corn in cribs goes out of condition much quicker and much easier in warm, mild weather. Too, one day's drying in the field is worth several days of favorable drying weather in the crib, the agricultural engineer reminds far mers who are in doubt as to whether their corn has reached a moisture content low enough for safe storage. Moisture content of corn for safe storage under normal conditions should not be much more than 20 per cent, but corn cribbed in early fall needs to be considerably drier, says Van Vlack. Keep Corn Clean .Safe cribbing of this year's high priced corn crop can be helped by keeping shucks, silks and dirt to a minimum when unloading. An opening in the bottom of the elevator helps. So does a. fan or blower on the picker or at the.un loading site. ' Changing the position of the spout will allow about three times as much air circulation in the filled crib as can be obtained from leaving the spout in one spot, according to Van Vlack. Ears all slide lengthwise down the pile, line up and pack down if the spout is left in one location. SUGGEST SAFE STORAGE FOR SUMMER CLOTHING You'll avoid clothing casualties over the winter if you make sure summer things are put safely away. Devote a special time to fall storage, suggests Frances Friedell, Iowa State College clothing specialist, to guard against cracks in rayon dresses, moth holes in summer woolens and spots or stains "set" in fabrics. Put summer clothing away clean, emphasizes Mrs. Friedell. That's as important for rayons and cottons as it is for woolens. Soil left on fabrics over the months attracts insects. And spots may be difficult or impossible to remove later on. Don't starch summer garments when you launder them for storage. Eilverfish are attracted to starched cottons as well as to all rayons. And the fabrics are more likely to crack at the folds if they're starched. Be sure clothes MEN WHO MEASURE UP 0 THE OFFICES THEY SEEK -^MH|iBBBBBBBBB ^aF- - i Gtorm A. WILSON U. S. SINATOR Thomas E.

Folding away in boxes or drawers is usually better than hanging. Rayons particularly stretch on the hanger. If you hang clothing, use padded hangers. They, hold the shoulders in better shape and are less likely to leave marks than wire hangers. Moth damage can occur in the winter, Mrs. Friedell points out. Moths thrive at temperatures of about 75 degrees F. Remember, moths can do as much damage to mixtures containing wool as to 100 per cent woolens. So be sure clothing is clean; use moth preventives; and tightly seal in packages, bags or boxes. DISAPPOINTED Frank Jacobe, 87, of- Hawarden is disappointed. He fulfilled a life-long dream of going back to his home town in Dickeyvllle, Wisconsin recently and after 72 years, he found no one he knew and even buildings were changed. The house of his birth is now a two-story, rather than a one-story structure. • Ho other Heavy-DufyTrucks have CHEVROLET'S VALUE MEW HKBWM BUILT SAVE COLONIAL e.

John Falb & Sons Falb Motor and Implement ELGIN, IOWA POSTVILLE, IOWA I \ Billion RAILROADS MUST OPEXATK around the clock every day and night of the year. Although they know this, leadens of 16 railroad unions are demanding a five-day, Monday through Friday, week for one million railroad .employes. They want 48 hours pay for 40 hours work —in itself a 20% wage increase. They also demand a minimum of 12 hours pay for any work performed on Saturdays, and IS hours pay for any work performed on Sundays and holidays. On top of all this they want en additional increase of 26c an hour for every employe! You'd Pay (he BHH Summing up these demands, they mean that these union leaden seek to. force the railroads to give one million employe* an annual raise which would outrage (1800 per employe! The total cost of this would be no less than 114 billion dollars per year, which Is more .than twice, the espected net facome of (be railroads tab year. • Yoa'd pay the bill, because if tneatja.. :' greased cost* are forced on the wilweida, they must have still further rate and fare increases. Demand* Unreasonable These employes have bad substantial raise* during end since the war. Their average wesk< ly earnings are higher than the average weekly earnings of workers in manufacturing industries. They have more job security than the average worker in American industry. They also enjoy paid vacations, a retirement system and other advantages more generous than the average worker receives. In contrast with the demands of these IS anions, which add np to the equivalent of 48c an hear, the Conductors and Trainmen recently settled their wage request for an increase of 10c Rsjboads Ron for Everybody— Not Employes Alone The railroad industry must serve not one' bos many groups—producers, businessmen, shippers, passengers and the general public- night and day, every day of the year. These unions are proceeding in .utter disregard of this important difference between railroads and other industries. Industrial plants can be shut down over weekends and holidays, but freight, mail, express and passengers mum) continue to nfave. Everybody who enters roii- road employment knoum this. Strike Threat On September 18,1048, the leadens of these 16 unions began taking a strike vote. But the threat of a strife will not alter the opposition of the railroads to such unreasonable demands!
