KOSSUTH COUNTY FARM Vol. XI ALGOtfA, IOWA, MARCH *«, 1931 Number HOW TO PLAN GROUP MEALS TO BE TAUGHT New Project Lesson Gives Training in Planning. Part two of Lesson 5, final lesson In the first year Home Management course studied by Farm Bureau -women In their 1(131 project work promises to be of practical help. Perhaps you have been asked to take charge of a church supper, a -Sinner for some club group or a ^banquet for a high school group. , "Sou may be one of those favored >ones who seems to know the correct Tray of doing everything by Instinct, or you may be less fortunate, and, never having had experience along "the line of large quantity cookery ;feel utterly lost when called upon to •assume such responsibility. Every farm homemaker Is called upon many times during the year to •prepare meals for large crews of anen or many guests. Careful plan- Tiing in advance will save time and energy and help one to be a charming hostess. Farm Wife Has Jinny Problems. The farm woman has several types of meals to plan. For threshers' meals the housewife must plan ahead to avoid overtaxing of her •energy and to save time. The meal must be heavy, because the men are •doing heavy work. However, it isn't necessary to have 'three or four kinds of meat, vegetables, jellies, jams, pickles, etc. Fewer kinds but •everything well cooked and neatly served in ample amount are more enjoyed by the hungry men. A menu for such a meal might be: o-oast beef, mashed potatoes, brown gravy; green beans, sliced tomatoes; jelly, pickles; fresh apple pie, coffee. Church suppers are meals often Tiard to plan in order to have something different, appetizing, and easily served. They must be attractive when served, and for this reas- oon must be planned with consideration of the appearance they will make on the table or on the plate. In serving large crowds two -things should be considered, pleas- 3ng the taste of the public and making money. Community suppers -should serve a definite social function, that of warming up a sense of -community friendship. flan Meals According to Price. Menus must be planned according to the price agreed upon. Thus is regulated by community conditions. It is usually best, however, to set a reasonable price and have a larger attendance rather than to set a "Wgher price and serve fewer patrons. Systematic planning in advance, -with definite committees chosen, -will make a. supper a success from 4he triple standpoint of pleasing the •public, making money, and conserving the sponsors' strength. Three committees in charge of a general chairman should be able to care for all details. These include iltchen, dining room, and clean-up committees. The general chairman, with the ielp of the three committee chairmen, should meet and consider the lollowing plan, which if carefully carried out will avoid much confus- "ion and overwork: Planning Schedule Is Outlined. A—Plan the menu—1. consider occasion; 2. number of people to be •served; 3. equipment; 4. serving space. B—Make out list for—1. food to be Jbought or solicited; 2. dishes; 3. tDowers or other decorations; 4: advertising. C—Make division of work for each •person on: 1. kitchen committee; 2. dining room committee; 3. Clean-up •committee. The principles of the common left!hand service may be stated as follows: 1. Place, pass, and remove all dishes to the left of the guest; that 3s, anyone at the table; 2. The exception is that beverages must be placed at the right, because one al•ways raises a cup or glass with the Tight hand; 3. One never reaches across in front of a guest. To remove beverages one must go to the aright; 4. In removing, placing, or ^passing food, use hand farthest tfrom guest—at left, use left hand, ibut when removing beverages, ' which are always at right, use right •land. This means that the elbow -<of a waitress is never pushed under a guest's nose. A menu which has proved profitable as well as pleasing to the public taste is: meat loaf, escalloped {potatoes, buttered string beans, ap- ople pie, celery, salad, ice cream, cake or cookies, coffee, milk. Another suggestion is: chicken pie, mashed potatoes, buttered beets, hot Tolls, pickles, gelatin fruit salad, Ommpkln pie with whipped cream, •coffee, milk. Checking Chart is Given. It Is well to check the meal by tthe following chart: ' 1, Have a variety of flavors in a <9Beal, not all strong or bland-fla- •Tored foods. 2. Plan for color in the meal—a 'Colorless meal le unattractive to the 'appetite. For example, all creamed dishes. Ever notice what a sprig 'at parsley or a tiny dab of spark- Jlng Jelly will do to a plate? 8. Have a variety of textures in •the meal. 4. Avoid repeating the same article of food. 6. Serve hot things hot, cold •things cold. 6. Do not chop or shred vegetables too fine when using in salads. 7. Avoid mixing salads too long *efore serving. They should be crisp *nd fresh. 8. Serve food easy to handle In served as plate or tray the arrival of spring the gay '# and greens of the 'jonquil Inspire a color scheme for a Soil ana Fertilizer Plots to Be Continued This Year Soils and fertilizer plots will be continued by the county Farm Bureau and the Extension Service during the coming season. Potash has given excellent results In this county when used on alkali soils. Very strong alkali areas, yielding 10 to 15 bushels of very poor quality corn have yielded over 40 bushels per acre of good quality corn when treated with 200 Ibs. per acre of 50 per cent potash fertilizer. Weaker alkali areas, where stalk growth is sufficient but the corn is soft, have responded to fertilizers of lower potash content, such as 0-9-27 j or 0-20-20. Some users prefer the relatively higher-priced mixtures because they spread easier. Mr. Gardiner, of the N. V. Potash Export company, will cooperate with the Farm Bureau and the Extension Service. Plots this year will include various rates of application by both planter attachment and broadcast methods, as well as a variety of materials, including several kinds of fertilizer and different forms of potash. Phosphate demonstrations.-- 'oh peat, muck, normal soils, and new plowed prairie hay land are planned for 1931. Last season 'the "Sim", Leigh plot at Galbralth on old pro.'!-' rie hay land returned Jpverj. 1 ijilie bushels of corn for 200-ib.'.''appl'lcft- tion of 20 per cent phosphate., with improved quality apparent -i'ofl' j, the fertilized area. On a Paetz field, east of Algona, the 20 per cent phosphate gave a six-bushel improvement over untreated pn normal soil of naturally good fertility. Peat and muck soils usually respond more than normal soils to phosphate applications, especially where early varieties of corn are used along with phosphate, though treatment is likely to return a fall- yield of mature corn where untreated areas give low yields of soft corn. Almost half of the callers at the Farm Bureau office come for information on the use of fertilizers. Ordinary soils that have been recently seeded to clover or soils containing plenty of humus or organic matter, such as peat and muck, usually respond well to phosphate. In general local soils are low in phosphate, and though well built up by clovers and careful crop rotation they may still give results with fertilizer which warrants trial on a limited area. Legume seedings have increased over 100 per cent in three years in the county, and some of the older users of fertilizers find that phosphate assists greatly in assuring a stand and a good yield of legumes such as alfalfa, medium red. Many maintain that the first place to use fertilizer is on legume seedings, thus assuring organic matter, nitrogen, and good bacterial action for the soil, which will be supplemented or aided in good crop production still further by the use of phosphate. J. L. Boatman, of the Soils Extension service, will be in the county within the coming month to help lay out the trial plots. Elite 4-H Club is Organized by Plum Creek Girls Twelve interested girls in Plum Creek township gathered at Mary Tjaden's Saturday afternoon, March 21, and organized a 4-H club. Muriel Body, H. D. A., explained the second year clothing course, which is the Kossuth 4-H girls' club project for 1!I31. County, club, and individual goals were also discussed. After an interesting list of names had been suggested for the club a vote was taken, and the name Elite was nelected. This was the name of a previous Plum Creek club, and because that club became a leader in the county the girls aim to gain first place with their second club. The v-Inning name was suggested by Mary Tjaden, who received :.RS a prize a quaint flower vase,.., .: Officers of the new club ai:e;, president, Mary Tjaden; vice..president, Uuth Miller; secretary-treasurer, Marjorie Johnson; reporter, 'Helen Paetn; historian, Edna Miller. A delightful social time followed the business meeting. Irish- guessing contests proved great -fun.- -Re- fi'eshments were served by the hos were;.-. Jttarjb'i-ie Frieda tess. Attending Johnson, Electa Greene, Paetz, Ruth Miller, Verla Edna Miller, Irene Fitzgerald, Dorothy Greene, Mary Tjaden, Helen Paetz, Ida Mae Gardner, Lucille Calhoun. Lena Bennett, leader of the club, was present and aided the H. D. A. in organization. CASH -FOR- Circus Suggestions The Farm Bureau will pay 60c to $5 to anyone In Kossuth for Ideas that may be used in a farm circus at the June picnic on the fair grounds. ' . - . : Write for Instructions. W. pPATERSON. Manager '.'«. RATE HEARING AT D, M, SHOWS VALUE OF ORGANIZATION By Ray S. McWhorter. "Be- here by noon Tuesday. We need you. If we lose, your rate to Des Moines will bo double." This was a telegram that came to me Monday evening, February 9, and was what I would say was the Call of Oi-Ranizaltlon. It was the call I got from the Iowa Vegetable Growers association to appear with others before the Railroad Commissioners and try to prevent them from granting a from Oft to 85% increase in rates on carlot shipments within the state. I will not go into details of this, fight against increased rates, but I ;do want to say just, enough so that readers of the Farm Bureau Exchange will know that Organization Is something that is needed and does give service and help when the average person knows nothing about it. % . On arrival at Des Moines I went to the hotel Chamberlain, where the hparlng was in progress. Henry Wallace had been testifying as to conditions in the dairy industry and was being cross-examined by the attorney for the Railroads. As I was not there for the early hearing I did not learn the exact nature of the roads' demands. I might say here that the people ar e represented before the commission in all rate Increase hearings by a commerce commission headed by !L man named Judge Henderson. They welcome testimony of the various Interests in protesting rate changes. The wool growers were called on next, and they were represented by a Mr. Sexton. He showed the commission that shippers of wool had to pay on a minimum car of 24000 pounds, when in many cases for a car of that rating only 1GOOO pounds could be loaded Into it. The attorney for the Railroads called attention to their exhibit, stating that some cars with that minimum rating carried over the 24000 pounds, and asked if it was not mostly a case of not having over 16000 pounds of wool at the places to ship instead of not being able to get it into the car. Mr. Sexton informed him that it was more convenient for the management at that loading point -o give them an extra large automobile car, and therefore they could 'et the minimum weight. The laugh from the crowd was on the attorney. When Mr. Sexton was asked why the wool shippers had been paying freight on weight that they could not get into the car Mr. Sexton's reply was, "I guess it was just because they had never been here to protest it." The railroads' claim for rate increases was based on the assumption that they could not give prompt shipping service and keep up their eciuipment on present rates. In every case they asked the witnesses if they did not realize that the shipper valued better service to the extent that a few cents (as they put it) increase in freight would be gladly paid. The exhibit prepared for the protest in rates on vegetables was lengthy and was presented through the secretary of the Vegetable Growers association, C. L. Fitch, of Ames. As in all cases they present this testimony through one man, but they entered the names of all persons present to back up that man's statements as their testimony also. All witnesses, however, must be there ready to take the stand if called called upon. The presenting of the testimony as prepared in the exhibit occupied the afternoon, and the cross-examination by the railroads was continued next morning. In most cases the attorney for the railroads seemed very much aggrieved that the Increases as asked should be;, protested by the organizations, and he closed his case b.y granting that the rates will remain as at present, pending adjustment of Interstate rates. This means that possibly again in a short time rate increases will be asked. Surely this story shows the value of organization. Wessels Settled in Western Home Mrs. j. H. Warburton, Lakota, re cently received a letter from Mrs, Lottie Wessel. Th e Wessels had a pleasant trip to California, driving 3400 miles via Kansas City, and through Kansas and Oklahoma to Fort Worth and Dallas, Tex., then across Texas to El Paso and via New Mexico and Arizona. They made a short stop at Tucson, Ariz., and then went through the Giant Cactus forest, They took a coast highway from San Diego through Los Angeles to Marysvllle, Calif., w here they are now settled on a small ranch of one and a half acres 3% miles from town, with three fourths of i acre of grapes and the rest in chicken yard. / The house is of Spanish type, small, but well arranged. They are only is miles from the mountains, and can see two ranges on clear days. Almond orchards had been in blossom two weeks, and were beau tiful. The Wessels live in an active Farm Bureau community with boys and girls' 4-H clubs well Organized, but organization Is by communities instead of by townships. Mrs. Wessel sent greetings to all Kossuth friends. He r address is Franklin Road, Yulea City, Calif. Three New Members Join Union Club The Alethean 4-H 'club of .'Union township met wjth. Lucilje Dearchs Saturday, ten members arid 'the Iea3- er attending. Thre e new members— Carmel Elbert, Fern Gisch, and Mary 'Gisch, county president— attended.. Plans were laid for activl ties. during the,, year, and Music '- . were,distrib.uted, HEAVr STEERS OUT-OF- DATE, FEEDER FINDS Smaller Meat Cuts Demanded by Public. This Is.a summary of a talk given recently by former Representative J. H. Jensen, of Seneca township, at a Bancroft Farm Bureau meeting. Mr. Jensen is qualified to speak on cattle feeding and marketing, for he has been in the game many years, and Is at present feeding 90 head, besides 200 hogs. The executive Committee of the county Farm Bureau, 12 township directors, and the' special legislative" committee met with 'Charles H. Hearst, president of the Iowa Farm Bureau, at * Swea : City Thursday, February 19; Dinner for (ill Farm Bureau folk wild" arrived' 'in tlirie was highly successful., ~ Everyone found a place .around a long table loaded with'gdod,'things,' and hot mashedipotajtoes'were served from a huge kettle.' Mrs". Myron •Johnsdn poured steaming coffee. ^ ' , f , President l Hearat .gave three talk's In one, the. audience asking him to continue.- He distrusts the strength of the organization, stressing the By J. H. Jensen. I first spoke of the trials and tribulations of a cattle feeder. Then I drew a mental picture of conditions n the range or semi-arid country of the West and the South, which te especially adapted to the grazing of cattle, being too rough and short of moisture for farming. I pointed out .hat where the land is fit for corn and oats the aevrage farmer can not afford to keep a cow Just to- raise a calf. On the other hand, In the •ange country, thousands of cows have nothing else to do but raise calves. ' ' . ' ' •.'.'• I also called attention to the changed attitude of the meat-buying lublic, which now demands smaller cuts of beef than in former, years; lence a large proportion of the cat:le fed for marHet nowadays , are calyes and yearlings. . Heavy Steers Out of Date. When •! started cattle-feeding 25 years ago, everybody fed 3-or-4•ear-old steeres, or what were cnown as heavy cattle. At last rear's International there were only wo lots of big cattle on exhibition, iust as a curiosity. There is no class at the show now for anything above 2-year-olds. The big eteers'in hese exhibits weighed an average of more than a ton, some of them more than 2400 pounds. They at- racted a lot of attention and were ust as choice as the show cattle, but they cduld not be entered in the show, being too heavy. After the show one lot sold for $9, :he other for $9.50, while similar quality cattle of the more popular veights brought $14 to $15. The big steers were penalized $6 just because of their weight. I had two cars of Texae-bred steers on • the Chicago market at the same time. They weighed an average of 1375 rounds and sold at $12.75. I did a little investigating Into the ilstory of the big steers, and found that they were prime cattle < seven months earlier than the show and at that time would have sold for $15, ;he market being then high. The leeders simply made the mistake any cattle feeder Is liable to .do, namely, overstaying a good market. Stockyards Impressions. When you are In Chicago on a Monday and the estimate says 30,000 cattle, 80,000 hogs, and 30,000 sheep, and when you look around at the stockyards and see acres and acres of fat bullocks, pens overflowing ,vith -hogs, and sheep houses full of Bleating sheep, and when you realize that there are many other markets where a great deal of livestock Is nandled, you wonder who is going to eat all the meat. But, again, when you go by the numerous city ating houses and see so many thousands of people being fed you wonder where -all the food comes from. It's a .big world! I also discussed some of the farmer's problems. The times will slowly Improve, I predict, but the. improvement will come more in decreased costs of what we buy, 'than In- higher prices for what we sell. There -Is no place to go any more with our surplus. The countries across the sea have for years nothing to buy with. Besides, since the war they have started rehabilitation programs which just about put a.n end to our export trade. In case of another war they will not be so dependent on the U. S. for food. Tariff is Fanner's Salvation. Russia, for instance, has four or five times as much land adapted for wheat growing as the U. S. has, and, besides, it has an area twice the size of Iowa, with soil and climate similar to ours, where other grains can be grown. If the Russians ever find themselves — and they seem to be making some headway — they will be a powerful factor in world markets. The only hope of American prices for the American farmer's products is a tariff wall high enough to keep our foodstuffs raised on ch,eap land with labor that costs little 'or nothing. If it were not for our 42c tariff on wheat at this time, wheat would now be coming across the line from Canada in everything from wheelbarrows to sailing ships. And still some will say that the tariff Is a detriment to the American farmer! . The farmer must not expect congress to do very much for him, but must help themselves and fight It out in an organized way. Algonians Speak at Lu Verne Meet The Lu Verne township Farm Bureau met at the city hall l n town Friday evening, March 13, with Mr. and Mrs. Albert Men-lam, Mr. anc Mrs. Frank Chambers, and Mr .anc Mrs. Ed Hot as hosts and hostesses An interesting- talk was given by ,^".

Spirited discussion took' the-meet- Ing past the usual time for adjournment. Edward -Droessler, Bancroft, and J. H. Warner, Swea City, audited and commented on the bills. A special-legislative committee—R. S. McWhorter, Burt, Herman Carlson, Wesley, and George Wicks, Hebron township^—presented . the following resolution, which carried unanimously: . • . "Resolved, That our county expenditures which are already too high In proportion to the ecbiiomic condition of the times and the prices received for agricultural products continually advancing. In view of this..fact, and'also..that, our roads have been much Improved, and in view also of the , improvement In motor designs, with resulting; lower driving costs, we, the directors of the Koseuth County Farm Bureau, do hereby heartily endorse the activity In our legislature in the attempt to cut mileage charges to actual cost figures for county officers and their employes." Copies of this resolution were sent to Senator Geo. W. Patterson and Representative A. H. Bonnstetter. » Readings Feature February Meet of Swea Farm Bureau pruirram given at a regular ea township Farm Bureau last month was one of the most talked of programs ever given at the Com- riunity hall, but another one, given ast week Tuesday, surely equaled Four readings were given. One. was a dramatic reading by a Miss Goeders, of the Cylinder high school. This young girl will enter the state contest with her reading, Tom of the Gleam. The other three were humorous readings, given by Nellie Guredette, Armstrong, Elmer Burg, and another Cylinder girl named •Goeders. They w ere all prize-winning readings. (Musical numbers on the program were: saxophone solo, with piano accompaniment; piano solo; Dlst. No. 4 eighth and seventh grade class songs, and an excellent musical comedy, The Beanville Choir. A short play, Three News Boys, was given by three I>ist. No. 4 boys, and Mrs. Fred McGregor gave a demonstration on how to make a tireless cooler. The fact that this was a Farm Bureau meeting was not forgotten, for a : business meeting was conducted as usual, with president George Harrter In charge. Chester''Schooy, Algona, gave a talk on Farm'Bureau affairs. Following adjournment a lunch was served. . The work of the program committee and of Mr. Leo Goeders, teacher in Dist. No. 4, is highly appreciated, and Swea township people are thankful for the fine community and cooperative spirit which makes these meetings possible. They keep our township on the map. Willing Workers at Wesley Meet The Wesley Willing Workers held their laet meeting at Helen Kent's, and all members attended except Arlene Brethorst. The girls cut lounging -pajama patterns. Miss Bode, home demonstration agent, was in attendance. Roll call was on Irish songs. Bernlce De Boer gave a -talk on music suitable for little brother and 'sister, and Helen Franzen a talk on woolen dresses and colors for blondes and brunettes. Miss Bode spoke on a tree-planting contest, after which the girls sang the Linden Tree and other songs. Mrs. Kent served lunch.
