Godfrey, who will shortly take office as a member of the staff of Iowa State college, spoke before the Rotary club Monday and gave his Ideas on 'the relations the college should have with the farm- ^ ers in Iowa. 'Rural communities | need the college to teach better farming to their children both in residence and via the extension service, he said. Mr. Godfrey emphasized that the college should not be criticized because better education of farmers creates overproduction. It has taught diversified farming, not overproduction, and has pointed out consistently that products should be grown which are adaptable to Iowa conditions, such as more flax, and more clover. Overproduction Not Taught. Overproduction is really poor distribution, Mr. Godfrey said, and he pointed out that many people In the cities are underfed. The federal government's new program of reducing acreage is, In a way, a backward step in this country, and to curtail the college's program of better ways of production would certainly be a step backward in civilization's progress. Mr. Godfrey also emphasized the point that better culture and more appreciation of life are among the duties of the college in Its educational program. The extension ser- Ei-Goternor Poiei from Ae«W«nt. iLu Verne, Aug. i-4ultus I^ost, west of l/i Verne, escaped serious Injury last week Tuesday In a collision with a gravel truck at a point just n6rth ot the river bridge east ot Ltvermore on No. 222.

Kossuth farm land was assessed at a total ot 415,608,462, a comparatively low figure, considering the size of the county. Only nine ot 22 northern Iowa counties listed m Friday a Mason City Globe-Gazette had lower totals. Town figures tor Kossuth, on the other hand, were higher than in other counties in this section, the Kossuth city total being |fi,937,560. whereas the average county assessment for towns was about two million. .This was doubtless because Kossuth. owing to its size, has more .towns. Cerro Gordo county, however, which includes Mason City, reported an assessment ot only $1,074,686 for city property, which seems much out or proportion when it is considered that Mason City alone claims a population equal to four-fifths of the entire Kossuth population.
