M ' i The Algona Upp^rPftflMoin^Algo^ 16^0^15,1942 FARMERS FACEBIG JOB IN 1943; A REAL CHALLENGE The specific farm products needed must 'be delivered when they Are wanted with the same precision «a the tknks, planes, guns and men. But not; just any; crops the farmer fcels'like planting.'. Farming as usual is out for the duration, says Robert iM. Loss, chairman of the Kossuth County USDA war board. The real gr:m strug-gle oil the farms has started, much harder than the achievements of the 1942 magnificent harvest. The goals far 1943 call for more than a third more meat than has normally been consumed In this country; and 8 per cent increase in egg production; two million pounds more milk thnn th'-s year; more corn; less wheat; more potatoes; more .dry beans; more vegetables vital to good diet. We must overcome, however, han- dScaps. here will be only one- fourth. Bs much new farm machinery as last year. Farms will be short of various types of farm equipment. Therefore, the KosA- suth County Farm Machinery Rationing Committee, In view of th's situation, asks anyone in need of farm (•"Ml^rnent to file his annlica- tkin with the committee as soon as reasonably conven'ent. County niio- -tas will he set for all types of farm machinery. One machine placed In the hands of a party who does not put it to maixmum use would be a waste of equioment and may de- •prlve peoole of food. Therefore the IPnrm MnnJiinerv Rationing Com- snittce believes that the machinery and equipment that is to be pur- <dtased, be utilized to is fullest extent LOCAL NEWS Bob Gelgel, son of Mr. and Mrs Fred Geigel, has pledged to Delta Tau Delta fraternity at the State University. Louise Wadleigh returned to Cedar Falls last week after spending two weeks' vacation with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Wadleigli IVterle Conklln spent the week rnd with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Oonklin. He attends the University of Dubuque and has recently received a numeral for football. He has enl.'sted in the army air corps reserve. Hank Guderlan, popular inail man, is back at work after seven week's absence while recovering from a broken icg. He is not sufficiently recovered to go out on his route but he will be busy, nt the stamp window or other, jobs Inside the post office and before long will resume his ftuUes as city carrier. Howard Knney wlio has been stationed with the army in Australia, has written his wife here that he has been transferred to New Guinea. Howard stated that during the period he was in Australia in that particular section it had only rained once while at New Guinea it had rained every day. Mrs. Raney is the former Dorothy Geil- pnfeld and is employed at Pratt Electric. True Fanner S. L. Starny of Robins farms his 27-acre farm by himself. He-'uses no horses or tractors in cultivating his corn. The corn this year in his small tract of land is right up with the best. It is between 13 and 14 feet tall and is uniform in every way. Stamy believes that shallow cultivation Is the best for corn and this year's crop helps to uphold that theory. Chrischilles SEND THE BOY IN THE SERVICE A CHRISTMAS WIRE Through the Red Cross arrangements have now been made*to send messages to the boys in the service for only 69c, including tax. A series of text messages have been fixed. This is an example: Algona, Iowa, Dec. ,14, 1942 Private John E. Smith Postmaster, New York City. A Dad and Mother. When that is filed with the telegraph company you pay 69c and withta a short time the boy receives this: Algona,' Iowa, Dec. 14, 19+2 Private John B. Smith (Here his address, Africa, Solomons, Alaska, etc.) A merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. All well. Dad and Mother. Following are the different texts and initials: A—A merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. All well. B—Love and Best Wishes for Christmas and the New Year. All well. O—'Love and Best Wishes for Christmas and the New Year to all at Home. All well. D—Love and Best Wishes for Christmas and the New Year from all at Home. All well. E—Love and Best Wishes for a Happy New Year. All well. F;—Every good wish for the New Year. The special rate of 69c is effective up to and including Dec. 27th. Here is a method, reasonable in cost, by which you may contact your soldier boys, no matter where they may be stationed. And wouldn't they apprecatc such a message? Don't wait—wire 'em now. KOSSUTH'S 1943 CORN ALLOTMENT UP 9,604 ACRES To Maintain Adequate Feed and Food Stocks for 1944 Kossuth Farmers Asked for More According to Robert M. Loss, Kossuth AAA chairman, farmers in the county will be expected to plant 197,277 acres to corn in 1943 as compared with the 187,673 acres planted in 1942. This is an increase of 9,604 acres in the AAA corn allotment for the county over last year, and is in Itoe with the boost for the commercial area as announced recently. Sufficient Feed for 1911 Mr. Loss explained that the increase had been made to insure sufficient feed for 1944 and even beyond, and to maintain adequate stocks in the ever- normal granary as protection against crop failure. The increase in this county compares with 1943 allotments as assigned to other corn counties in Iowa and adjustments were made to take care of crop trends within all of the Iowa counties. New Farm Plan A. J. Loveland, state AAA chairman, points out that AAA crop payments in 1943 will depend upon the way each farmer carr'«s out his production plan. This farm plan will be somewhat of a blueprint of farm production for each farm, representing the share of each farm in the national war production program and farm plan work sheets are to 'be worked out by the individual farmer and his AAA townsh'.p committeeman.
