Don Arndorfer, association president from Bancroft, says he sold over 60 the first week tickets were released. Thanks to John Levy with North Iowa Appliance in Algona for contacting Emmet Butler with Maytag at Newton and paying his speaking fee. Top notch speakers like Emmet Butler are a real asset to a good banquet. * * * Question - What can we do at this time to retard this wind erosion we are - now getting ? Answer - Once the soil begins to move the only thing a farmer can do is roughen up the soil surface at right angles to the prevailing winds with a disk or field cultivator. This can be done in strips. Question - What could have been done last fall to cut down on this wind erosion ? Answer- The obvious and probably over-simplified answer is to cut down on the large amount of fall plowing, especially fall plowed soybean land which seems to blow the most. * * * There is an Agriculture Conservation program under the ASC that is working in 27 Iowa counties, including Kossuth. The program pays one dollar per acre across the field for this procedure. When a farmer plows in the fall he alternates an unplowed strip at least 66 feet wide with a plowed strip 280 feet across. The A.S.C. asks the farmer to leave the unplowed strip until April 1. I talked to Ronald Gardner of Algona who followed this procedure last fall when plowing and he says it is working fine and is sure he is losing less topsoil than the farmers. Other Kossuth farmers following this procedure are Joe Kramer, Bancroft; Geo. Eden, Swea City; and Garmon Adams from Whittemore. Check these farms or talk to them to find out how well it works. Pm sure most would agree that we must do more to cut down this tremendous soil loss we've had the last few days. ANNIVERSARIES Mr. and Mrs, Isaac Van Gor- kqm, GUmore City, were feted on the occasion of their 65th wedding anniversary there at the same time as their daughter and son-in-law's 40fo anniversary and their granddaughter's 20th anniversary. RAMBLINGS FROM RUTH | »iiinmiiiiiiHiiiiiimiiminiiiiuiiiinniraiiP Drive. carefully - or you may not drive at all! * * * In the column I wrote Feb. 23 I issued a challenge to the teenage drivers of Kossuth county to reduce traffic accidents in 1968. Since then I've been giving the matter a lot of thought and am planning a real campaign to try to reduce teenage accidents. I contacted Sheriff Lindhorst's office and he reports that in 1967 there were 21 7 auto accidents reporting personal or property damage. Of these, 74 involved young people of the ages 16-19, or 34% of the accidents. Compare this to a national average of 33% involving drivers of the ages 16 " 25 ' Nationally it takes a wider ^W™ for the same percentage, f ™"*lvement. So let's have accident. In 19881 Adults - are we going to let the young people do better than we do?

The enthusiasm of the players is high - and most teams have had the support of a group of girls acting as cheerleaders. West Bend had a group of 4-H'ers lead the pledge of allegiance at the half time of one of the games. For fun and excitement attend the 4-H tournaments. The county finals will be held March 26 at Sentral High School near Fenton. * * * Furniture Facts — Plastic furniture the heirloom of the future? "That's pretty hard to imagine," says Lola Robinson, Extension Home Economist, but if s one of the interesting things we will discuss at the third meeting of the Home Decorating series which will be held on Tuesday, March 26 at 1:30 p.m. in the Extension meeting rooms in Algona. Furniture facts will include a look at styles and at trends in styling. Construction standards for case goods and for upholstered furniture will be discussed. Mattress buymanship will be included, too. The highlight of the afternoon will be a visit to Read's Furniture store to enjoy a great variety of illustrations of the points just discussed. working and a family of eight using Food Stamps from Emmetsburg, are going to find out how much they spend for food for one week. Each family has prepared menus for all seven days of the week that are well balanced nutritionally and have the recommended number of calories for each family member. Using these menus as a guide, each of the four homemakers will buy most of their food this Saturday and supplement this with home canned and frozen food. Meals "eaten out" or at school by family members will be included in the cost of the food. A similar study was done a few months ago with families on the east and west coast of the United States. Forty dollars was the approximate cost of food for a week for a family of four and $20 for a retired couple. Results of their study will be reported in a national farm magazine within the next few months, as well as a full report being made locally. MEMOS FROM MARGARET A very interesting study on food costs will be going on in Kossuth and Palo Alto counties next week. Four families, two from each county, including a young farm couple with three children under ten from Corwith, an older farm couple whose children are grown and not living at home, also from Corwith, a town couple — both FOR SALE AT PUBLIC AUCTION FRIDAY, MARCH 22-6 P.M.
