Begin now t'o plan to make her attend the woman's rest camp it Clear Lake. If the cost were great the Exchange would feel that In these imes It would be useless to urge this, but surely almost anybody can afford only five dollars and the auto mileage and time necessary to take mother to the camp and go back to bring her home. This is a case in which mother's protests, if any, must be disregarded. Husband, son, and daughter should unite in a firm resolve that for once mother shall have a few days off to rest, mingle with her kind free from household worries, and learn some of the good things of life. Dad should enter heartily into this conspiracy, for he will get back a wife refreshed by a few days' absence and grateful for the attention every wife so deeply appreciates from her mate. Son and daughter should enter into it with enthusiasm out of gratitude to mother for.her long and behalf.

At the county fair she was crowned 4-H queen of Kossuth. Mary is now in her fifth year of club work. Her club record book, which was entered in a Des Molnes Register state contest, was an outstanding' example of the achievement of an outstanding club girl who really lives the club ideals.

Let her assert her independence and lay down the law. Mother must go, and that's all there is to it, and when she returns she will find that daughter knows how to keep house. Let daughter dedicate these four days to staying at Rome in order that mother may go without worry about how things are going at home. The camp grounds are on the south side of the lake, just west of Bayside; a beautiful place where nature suggests peace and rest.

This club has geen divided into two groups In a contest during the ORCHARD SPRAY IS DUE NOW TO KILL SCAB AND WORMS Tiny fruits just starting to form need protection from both Insect and disease pests and the only safe way to protect them Is to keep them covered with spray material during this time of year. Another orchard spray is due now! This first-cover spray should he applied to all apple, pear, plum and cherry trees 10 days to two weeks after the calynx or petal-fall spray, the time depending upon amount of ranifall during the the per- the Music Memory contest. Club and individual awards for the two high scores will be given. Members present at the meeting were: Mrs. Paul • Krlethe, . county chairman; Mrs. B. B. Dittmer and Mrs. J. M. Patterson. rest of the 4-H year at wearing uniforms at club and county meetings, conducting drives for new club and Farm Bureau members, showing exhibits at Farm Bureau gatherings, etc. The losing side in this contest will have to entertain the winners at a party or luncheon. iod. Heavy rains call for spray a few clays earlier. On apples this spray is mainly to control scab and the first of the first brood codling moth worms that soon will be entering the fruit. The mixture used Is B quarts of liquid lime sulphur, or 3 Ibs. in the dry form, plus 1 to 1% Ibs. of lead arsenate to 50 gallons. However, there are many growers who prefer a weaker fungicide in this spray, and use IMs Ibs. of dry lime sulphur plus 5 Ibs. of hydrated lime, plus the lead arsenate. This formula causes less russeting or burning of the fruit as compared with the stronger strengths of lime sulphur. Growers are cautioned to watch gooseberry and currant bushes for the currant worm. This worm is first noticed making tiny holes on the leaves on the inside of the bushes. When first noticed the bushes should be sprayed with the mixture, or if a grower has just a few bushes, with three tablespoonsfu! of lead arsenate to one gallon of water. Banquet is Given j Swea Cityans for Judging Teams Boys of the Smith-Hughes agricultural classes of the Swea City schools who thls_ycar repeated their* usual program o'f winnings in state contests, were honored at a banquet given by local women at the schoolhouse Tuesday evening, May 19.

Sweany, the Instructor, and short talks by Supt. Logan, Mr. Sweany and County Agent Morrison. Maynnrd Jensen, one of the demonstration team, responded briefly for the boys. "'''' This group has furnished juojgfng teams which have for the last thrte years consistently placed amorjg the high ten teams In all state Sniith- Hughes and 4-H club contests at Ames and Des Moines.

The object of the. new organization, which will hold a national meeting some time in June, will be to advance the cooperative movement in America to protect the marketing act and to work with the Farm Board in establishing national agricultural policies. A committee of five has been chosen to bring together the larger farm organizations and commodity groups in the near future. Chas. A. Ewing, president of the National Live Stock Market- Ing association and member of this committee, also declared In an address before the Chicago Association of Commerce that the farm market is vital to city business, "Since the American farmer is a market for more than four times as much manufactured goods as te exporting during the most favorable of years," he said "it is of vital interest to the cities that agriculture's attempt to improve its marketing position be successful." _. 1486 Attend Home Management Course On Tuesday afternoon, April 28, the county committee for the woman's project wprk, met at the Burt Legion hall, and final plans for Achievement day May 28 were laid.

It was held at the Center schoolhouse, and a genuine community evening was enjoyed by 40 rural folks. The following program, was given: talk, Farm Bureau Organization, E. R. Morrison, county agent; talk on the woman's project work, Murjel Body, Here's Treatment for Many Hogs Dr. K. W. Stouder, veterinarian of the Iowa State college extension service, has prepared a series of letters on mange control in hogs. These letters emphasize the loss pf profit through mange, the value of dipping hogs and the fact that packer buyers discriminate -against hogs showing signs of mange, since first grade hams and bacons cannot be cut out of mangy hogs. Frequent dipping, treatment of house, and posts will kill the mites. For dipping, a liquid lime sulphur, one gallon to 30 gallons o water, is recommended, and the same treatment may be applied to walls and buildings. Crude oil and waste crank case oil which has stood in an open container so that any gasoline present might evaporate, are recommended if thoroughly applied, and Dr..,Stouder suggests addition of a pint pf liquid creosbl to each 10 gallons. Most veterinarians usually carry both of these materials., Excellent Program Presented in Swea A large crowd listened to a fine program at a Farm Bureau meeting at the Community hall in Swea township Tuesday evening, May 19.

Three special cars will be in Algona 24 hours and open for inspection of those interested. A round table discussion of lamb feeding and management problems will be held at S P. m. July 24. The train will include pens of lambs of various grades, both feeders and fat lambs. There will also be an exhibit of equipment and material used in general flock' management. Stops will be 'made at Spencer, 'Em metsburg, Algona, and Garner, a,nd all persons interested in feeding and management of lambs will be invited to attend. Recent frosts in many sections of the state have caused injury to fruits, according to the horticultural extension service of Iowa State college. Frosts seem to have done more damage In central Iowa than any other section of the state. Many blooms were killed, but late bloom escaped which will be enough to make at least a partial fruit crop. It is necessary to wait till after the June drop before quantity is indicated. Under these conditions many growers think they will have no fruit and stop spraying. This is usually a mistake. Fruit growers should spray if there is a possible chance for a crop In order to save what fruit remains.
