County Agent Morrison gave a short talk on the part of Farm Bureau in extension work In which he emphasized the almost unlimited demands on the state experiment station • by farmers who as individuals depend upon a great variety of farm crops and livestock practices for the major portion of their Income. The many kinds of requests for information assembled in one state experiment station has necessitated the development of a great institution, even though the part therein allotted to any one project may be conservative in relation to the total value of that project to farmers of the state. The Farm Bureau extension program and activities have been found the most economical and practical way of taking information from the various departments of the state and federal station out: to the individual farmers.

This is clever "Music washes away from the oul the dust of everyday life," said Auerbach. This is quoted in connection with the announcement that plans are now being laid for chorus activities for the 1932 convention of the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation. The purpose of the state chorus is to develop batter township Farm Bureau 'programs. Each township should learn the songs and sing them at Farm Bureau meetings. Singing creates a bond of fellowship. It should be encouraged as a fam ily experience. Township and county choruses may do effettive service for Farm Bureau activities. The songs which will be used by the state adult .chorus at the con vention in 1932 and the county and township choruses during 11)31 in elude seven available in !a song leaflet which may be secured from the Extension Service, Ames, at 15c a copy.

Miss Body attended the meeting and talked to the girls about the annual Ames convention and other 4-H activities of the year. The club elected Mary Gisch vice president for the remainder of the year to succeed Jean, pruikshank, who has dropped out of the club.

An immense open record book faces the little housewife in the picture, who with pen poised and a questioning look faces It. The slogan reads, "Budget Your Time and Save Energy." Poster No. 3 was chosen from the Grant booth. This lesson was on home grounds improvement, and the poster shows a home with no shrubs, the slogan reading, "A Home Without Shrubs is Like Bread Without Butter." From the Greenwood booth the judge chose poster No. 4, a lovely picture, showing mother and children enjoying the outdoors, with the slogan, "Planning Makes Happy Hours." * Parade Shown on Poster. Poster No. 4, shown by Portland township, is a businese-like affair labeled "Planning Saves Confusion." The sixth poster, on the Spirit of the Project, was chosen from Harrison township. This is most attractive. "Join the Big Parade," reads .the slogan, and there is a picture of a circus parade. Rich coloring make's this poster outstanding.

Several Iowa township Farm Bureaus have already organized choruses for this year. Individuals who have had training in leading church choirs, glee clubs, etc., can do a real service to their communities bj» becoming leader of a local chorus. Kossuth should have representatives in the state chorus next year. Townships will find their Farm Bureau meetings taking on new spirit if these songs are introduced by a home talent chorus. Weed spray demonstrations were conducted by County Agent Morrison at William Koestler's, west of Burt, and at the M. B. Burwash farm, one mile north of the Center schoolhouse, Fenton township, last week Monday and Saturday afternoon. At the meeting in Burt township weeds were sprayed in a fence row. The neighboring field has been seeded to alfalfa in an attempt to smother thistles. The alfalfa method is proving satisfactory in cases where the soil is in shape to grow this crop and a heavy seeding applied. The two or three cuttings of alfalfa continually sets back the thistles, and the new growth of a' falfa comes up faster than the thistles. . ' 'Alfalfa Best Smother Crop. Sudan and millet are also used a smother crops, but are usually planted two successive years, with fall and spring fallowing between crops for best results. The perennial alfalfa plant seems, however, the best crop for this purpose where soil conditions are satisfac- Kossuth Girls to Attend 4-H Camp Next week Thursday till the following Sunday have been set for the annual 4-H girls' camp at Gimp Foster, the Okobojis. Girls are expected from O'Brien, Sioux, Emmet, Lyon, Dickinson, Cherokee, Plymouth, Clay, Kossuth, and Humboldt counties. The camp will be open Thursday noon and continue through Sunday noon, July 5, with ten meals. The bharge has been iflxed at $4.f>0, which does not include transportation. If ten girls go from a county no charge will be made for their leader. A program Is being outlined to include the principles of 4-H training.

This will be the fourth summer spray, and he believes it will be the most important of any. Recent rains have started apple scab In eome sections," says Mr Nichols. Furthermore the apple worms are late again this year, and the first cover spray, applied two weeks after the petal-fall spray only controlled the very first. Thi second cover spray -is necessary ef festively to control them. The ap pie maggot or railroad worm .ha been destructive, and this spray will help control the first of them but another spray should be applie in two weeks or in the week* of July 7. In other words, to control the pests the fruit must be kept covered with spray till from - four to six weeks before ripening. One to 1% Ibs. of lead arsenate and either 4% quarts of liquid sulphur (or three pounds of the dry form) to 50 gallons, or the Ohio formula which consists of 1% Ibs. of dry lime sulphur and 5 Ibs. of hydrated lime to 50 gallons, are suggested. To this Ohio formula must be added the lead arsenate. Spray the fruit and be sure each apple is covered. Barren trees do not need H, D, A, SPENDS BUSY MONTH IN PLANNING WORK Achievement Day is Big Event in This Month. Four clubs were visited by the H. D. A., and the total attendance! at the meetings was 69. Clubs visited were the German Golden glees, Fenton Forwards, the Elite, of 'Plum Creek, and the Burt Lively League. Helps for the Rally day program were given and organiza- lion material distributed. Lesson plans were completed lot seven training schools to be conducted by the H. D. A. for 4-H club, girls during the vacation time. Organization charts were made and lesson outlines finished. It is hoped that girls from townships having no clubs will attend these meetings and that interest may thus be carried to heir communities. Fifty 4-H club girls and their lead- rs assembled at the Legion hall, Burt, the afternoon of May 28 for Achievement day, and Miss Buchanan, state worker, helped them with, he Music memory contest numbers. Tentative plans for county 4-H lealth examinations have been laid. County fair plans have been checked with the 4-H committee in charge. Achievement Day Big Event. Achievement day at Burt May' 28 was the big event in the woman's work that month. An especially fine record was made. Seven o'f ten, exhibits scored perfect on organization,and- each booth was an exhibit that showed a clear understanding of the course and good Farm Bureau interest. Following are the townships which had booths and their scores: Grant, 808; German, 813; Lu Verne, 986; Swea, 1,000; course. Two places-were awarded in a demonstration team contest.

T report of the Ames convention was eiven Gertrude Vina Morrow, The comittee in charge of the program consisted of Mrs. Iverson, Mrs. Thompson, Ed Bergeson, and j. E. Harner. Swea folks are always glad to have Mr. Morrison in attendance. After the meeting he was surrounded by a group of. boys who seemed to ibe enjoying an enthusiastic discussion. . Mr. Travis was kept talking by men wishing to know about this pest and that and what to do about honors went to Ledyard on a demonstration entitled "Kitchen Utensils." The interesting part was a unique cookie utensil used by the team. Rolled cookies were made without the usual rolling process of floured board and rolling pin. This demonstration will be put on at the state fair by Mrs. Alma Heetland and Mrs. J. E. Telkamp, of Lakota. A close second was the team from Lu Verrie to\ynshlp, with a demonstration, "The Roll of the Egg- Beaters." The theme here also was kitchen utensils., Members of this team were Mrs. Earl' Neal, Mrs. B. Masterson, and Mrs. DeRae Godfrey. Both teams held the.interest of the audience"and convinced folks of the value of good kitchen utensils, which was the purpose o£ the demonstrations. . -"Gaining Through Cooperation,' was contributed by Lu Verne twp.

The-th,eme was the Training Schools for Girls to Be Held in Kossuth One of the county goals in 4-H club work is to have training schools^ for the girls this summer. These are to cover more .thoroughly certain phases of club work, which cannot be stressed at specialist training schools in winter because of lack of time. The H. D. A. will conduct seven of these schools in late June 1 and 1 early July. District No.. 1, which includes the active clubs of Swea and Harrison townships, with a cordial invitation to interested girls from Grant and Eagle, and such a school this week Tusday at the Swea Community Hall, and Dist.

The following program was presented at each school; 10:30 - 10-45—Music appreciation. fective application than the ordinary cone-type nozzle. R. H. Porter, botanist for the Ames Extension Service, spent last, week Wednesday in this county, and held weed meetings and spray demonstrations at the Ambrose A. Call state park in the morning and two miles south of Swea.' City in the afternoon. The rneetings were part of a program arranged for Kossuth and neighboring counties as well as ire other parts of the state, to encourage concerted efforts towards eradication of weeds. Emphasis is placed mainly on Canada thistle in this county, along with general work' on the sow thistle, the European morning glory,'the horse nettle, and other noxious weeds. Chemicals Mixed and Applied. At the state park attention was called to a patch of Canada thistles this spray. All varieties of apple, pear, and plum trees should sprayed. Cherries should not ceive this spray, as the fruit is now nearly ripe. that had been sprayed only once in 1930 and practically destroyed by the one application, only a few scattered plants appearing at this time. At both meetings some chemical was mixed and applied. Sodium chlorate is being used effectively as a spray for weeds. It is mixed about one or 1% pounds to the gallon of water and sprayed on well grown plants. The poison seems to be absorbed by the roots for some time after the top is apparently dead, therefore patches .which have been sprayed should not be disturbed. Pastures, Dairy Calf Clubs in Annual Tours Dairy calf club tours were held last week by the Algona 'and Wesley clubs. Wesley tours took place Wednesday, and the Lakota club staged a tour Thursday. E. M. Wright, secretary of the state' dairy association, spent two days in the county, attending the tours and assisting the members In the feeding and management of their calves, He also helped with fitting and showing demonstrations. Judging classes were arranged, and Mr, Wright instructed the boys in, the fine points of judging Holsteins, Guernseys, Brown Swiss, and Jerseys. The Algona members were visited at home in the forenoon, and in the afternoon the club met with the Wesley members for a joint tour Burt, 999 (really 1,000, but slight oversight on one poster); Portland, 1,000; Lincoln, 1,000; Harrison, 1,000; Ledyard, 1,000; Greenwood, 1,000., All of the posters were extra-good. The posters chosen for the state fair exhibit will do credit to Kossuth. Two hundred people visited tho booths and heard the demonstrations. Next year, it' is hoped, thero will be 15 booths. Miss Knowles, of the Ames Extension Service, met with the county committee May 20 for an all-day meeting at the Legion hall, Burt, at which the Achievement day score card was checked. State fair plans were laid and the project for 193d> 32 written. Kossuth will take' .up fourth year Home Furnishing next year. Twenty women attended. Attends Lu Verne Meeting. A committee meeting in Lu Verne township was held the afternoon of May 21 at the home of the township chairman, Mrs. Earl Neal, and, 14 women attended. Final plans for Achievement day were laid, and, the township demonstration for that event checked over by the H. D. A. German township held a Farm Bureau meeting Friday evening.

Patches sprayed now may need another spray late this fall. Cornfield patches may be sprayed once this season, several, weeks af-. ter the last cultivation. The delay after cultivating allows all possible plants to grow again,- and by that time the corn is far enough along so that the crop will not be seriously injured by the spray on t the thistles. Patches in oat fields which are cut now to prevent seeding may be given one heavy application after the oats are cut and the new. growth comes up in the stubble.
