A little later in reprisal Hitler attacked Russia.

Harry Nolle, not omy seems I of the brand of weather he is producing, but breaks loose occasionally and shows that he is equally proud of thc record of his home state of Iowa. Harry has compiled figures on the state's farm production, and says. "This should increase the chest expansion of all lowans and make their hats n a bit tighter. And isn't it grand to live in the best county in such a great state?" Here is tne record: In a very unfavorable season and with .;.;.. a crop below normal in 1947, Iowa ranked in first place among all the states in cash 'ncomc from farm produce with a total value of $2,368,962,000. This exceeds Cali- iornm, second place in the nation, by $244 494 nftA •y The fact that California has nearly three times the area of Iowa demonstrates the- value of Iowa land which contains ^ more than one quarter of all the grade A-l land in thc United States. Iowa and Cali- lornm were the only states in the 2 billion dollar cldss. Iowa's income exceeded third place Illinois by $494,233,000 and that of fourth place Minnesota by $1,033,406,000. It is hard to grasp the enormity of Iowa s farm income but to put it in simple figures,-if all the states had equaled the JQW«. total the farm income-would have .been $113,710,176,00. As it is the 1947 farm income for the whole U S was $30 174,744,000, which shows that Iowa had nearly four times the average of all the ; states m the Union. . j w ^ THE COST OF EACH OFUS Sheldon Mail: President Truman's budget message seems to most of us to be dealing in as- ironomiCcil fifiiirps T^nvtw Km;«« • i vw * **6«i*-a. r oi ly DUllOns IS mernlv n rnuf of figures.
