Instead of plowing three or four acres a day per man as before with small teams, the users generally figure one acre a day for each horse In the team, thus plowing six or eight acres per clay with their 6 and 8-horse hitches. Other work is speeded up in the spring. One of the Union township farmers recently made his own 8- horse hitch and reports covering 70 acres in three days with a tandem disc, and he has also worked a 3- sectlon spring-tooth harrow with the same hitch. : the shelf at the i lirm upright pieces top, for Underneath either |wlre or fasten securely 1 blocks of wood a wooden las a broom handle or piece I Curtains of cretonne or llnte may -be used to com- I closet, i In Judging Given. i Judging were given by 8th.

Last year 3,500 wool producers sold- approximately 1% million pounds, and on the basis of sales to date producers will receive 3c to 7c a pound more than they would have received had they sold on the local market. This amounts to approximately $61,000 for 3,500 producers who eold through the Iowa Sheep and Wool Growers association, an average of about $18 for each grower. Kossuth may not have a county pool, but local growers may take advantage of the state pool by shipping direct to the warehouse at Des Mpines, and they will. receive the sa'me benefits as other growers. •4 ' Shorthorns to Be Sold Here May 27 4-H Rally Day is Planned for June 4 Tentative plans for the annual 4-H club Rally day were laid at a 4-H county committee meeting at the home of Mrs. Paul Kriethe's, county chairman, west of Burt, April 1.

An unusually., fine spirit was demonstrated by the girls, and big things are -expected of this group. The same afternoon the H. D. A. met for a little time with the Portland Peppy Pals club. : Lack of leaders is the greatest problem just now in club work. Because of the economic depression, many people are more or less discouraged and feel that they must stay at home. Eighteen training schools in home management were held by the H. D. A. in March, and the first-year home management course was completed March 27. Lesson V on the making of a homemade tireless cooker and on large-quality meal - planning was given at all March schools, and the following townships received the lesson: Greenwood, Riverdale, • German, Fenton, Swea, Harrison, Garfield, Irvington, Hebron and Eagle. 150 Attend lesson Schools. There was a total attendance of 150 at these schools'and the lesson met with a fine response from the women, though spring activities kept some at home. In addition to the training schools, Short Course Will Show Farm Methods Business methods in farming, farm credit, soil management, and Its relation to farm profits, and the banker's relations to the farmer are «omo problems to be discussed at the seventh annual soil and land valuation short course at Iowa State college May 6-7.

The following ten townships are making preparations for booths: Lu Verne, Grant, Portland, Greenwood, German, Swea, Harrison, Burt, Lincoln, and Ledyard.' Others may decide to have booths.

Special features concerning important phases of the course will be shown in each booth, Gay posters depicting important points In each lesson the Farm Bureau spirit, and township organization will make every booth of interest. The lunch at noon will be simple, saving time and trouble for the busy women. The menu will include meat sandwiches, pickles, pie, and coffee. Ice cream will be eold. The judging, of the. booths for county honors will begin sharply at 10 o'clock a. m. Mrs. N. May Larson, of the Extension Service at Ames, will be judge. Fannie Buchanan will have part of the program time In which to present the year's music Minnesota Board Gives F. B. Work Real Compliment Parents Imvlng children In 4-H club work in Martin county, Minnesota, must join the Farm Bureau If the usual appropriation for extension work is to be made, according to a decision made by the county commissioners. Several' weeks ago the county board .decided to reduce its appropriation for extension work by $600. A wave of protest arose In farm circles, and many requests were made that the board reconsider its action and again vote the appropriation that obtained previously. Now the county board has offered a compromise, saying that if all parents of 4-H club members will Join the Farm Bureau the additional amount will be granted. Members of the executive board of the Martin County Farm Bureau sola it was contrary to practice to try to compel parents of club mem bers to join the Farm Bureau, but that the suggestion would be put up to the executive committee as a whole. The county commissioners said this was their best offer; that the proposition was final. »This attitude of the county board an individual to meet all on eveii terms; and when this has been done, the farmer must g<y further and or* ganize to guide and direct hew ideas, new methods, and new de> vices for the best interests of the industry and of society. Plow Sweet Clover for Manure May 1 Sweet clover used as green manure gives best results when the ield is to be planted to corn if the lover is plowed under when It Is 6 to 8 Inches high, according to E. S. Dyas, Ames crop specialist. if In an ordinary season, sweet clover| reaches this height In Iowa about 1 ; May l, though many farmers have* had to plow their sweet clover car- ier this year because of the unusual season. The Illinois Experiment Jtation obtained the highest yield rom corn following early plowing of sweet clover when It was about to 8 Inches high. Analyses have shown that there Is almost as much total nitrogen in the crop at that stage as later. Plowing early helps avoid harmful effects of dry weather which sometimes occur when sweet clover Is plowed late and a long dry period occurs. Sweet clover left longer also uses soil moisture. Moments With project, Foreign Merko Gain 4.8 bu, Gain 3.9 . Gain ,9 . '• 3.2 , ' Several kinds of dusts haw been used-on local plots during .the past several year's and' about the same results, obtained with the several dusts now eold locally, including Bayer. Dust, Steroclde, Semesan Jr., and Merko. These .dusts have proved of greatest value when cool damp weather prevails at planting time. They disinfect the kernel to aid In the prevention of mouldy and rotten seed after planting. Though the spring of 1930 was favorable for early start of corn, the treatments listed above still gave an average return of 3.2 bushels of corn an acre. Variety C in the plot was early selected, artificially dried, and carefully stored, all of which reduced to a. minimum the disease injury on the untreated and gave only a small gain on the treated areas. Varieties of A and B which were early selected and hung to dry in the ordinary way evidently had. more disease present, thus giving a greater return for treatment. Seed treatment has been thought to control many evils, but seed disinfections to give the live kernels a clean healthy start at sprouting time is its real value, since the healthy start means fewer barren stalks and a better yield. "Musical Mothers." • Each chairman of a township taking part is ' especially busy now, directing plans for the event. These chairmen are: Mrs. Earl Neal, Algona; Mrs. L, Mine, Lakota; Mrs. Lewis McWhorter, Burt; Mrs. Frank Wllhelmi, Bancroft; Mrs. H: Abbas, Lakota, Mrs. Emil Larson, Swea City; Mrs. -Harold Roba, Swea 'City; Edna Staley,: Burt; Mrs. J.

Weeds Cut Early Do Not Sow Seed "Know your weeds." This may well be the slogan of all farmers who wish successfully to combat and eradicate noxious weeds on their farms. According to word from R. H. Porter, Extension plant pathologist, a serious infestation of weeds often occurs because the owner does not know what kind his weeds are and because he does not have them identified till they have spread over a large area, and are, causing serious trouble. Farmers who find weeds on their farms which they do not recognize may have, them Identified by sending them to the Farm Bureau at Al» gona or to the Botany Department, Iowa State college. Perennial weeds, if Identified when first found In small patches, may be killed with comparatively little trouble; but after they have spread, over a large area or an entire farm, much labor and sometimes money must be. expended to eradicate-them. ...
