This clause requires -tenants to observe whatever government plans are offered to farmers, which would include reduction of crop acreages and hog production. The chances are that if the government continues its reduction program such a clause will become common in all farm leases. It will be another thing to go into the fine print in leases which few farmers read or know about till the landlord digs it up for enforcement. • * * «. S. M'Whorter, 2% miles east and two miles south of Burt, has shipped two cars of potatoes, loading them at Titonka, but still has his big pit full. He has been a sort of a Kossuth potato king for the last 20 years or so, but the "spuds' are far from his only farming activity, for he farms 360 acres. Glenn Behse, a half mile east and 1 3-4 miles south of Ledyard, was plowing old pasture ground Friday, and was finding it tough pulling, as he was plowing deep. He showed us some of his potatoes. He had some 20 acres in potatoes, and dug more than 3600 bushels, most of with horse thieves. She las lost a nujnber of chickens by theft recently, she had been getting more than 70 eggs a day, but it dropped to 15 a day, and when she checked up on her flock she found many of her best hens missing. * * * * Prank Kuhn, a half mile north and a quarter mile west of Lone Hock, was plowing last week Tuesday. His wife was helping him with outdoor work. They would gladly hire a man, however, if the prices of farm products Justified it, They arc building a rock garden in spare time. They have a great supply of tomatoes in their garden, and they wish they could give some away, forHhey can't use all of them. They are milking nine cows at present, and they have 32 spring pigs which are doing well. Elmer Luverne Stubbs, Mrs. Kuhn's son by a former marriage, was graduated from the Lincoln high school, Des Moines, in June. He was 18 in May, and. he is now at Hollywood, where the Fox Film company has been giving him tryouts. He writes that he likes the work, and his mother is pardonably proud to feel that the boy is mak- ng good. We had a little visit Friday with Floyd Duncan, three-fourths miles lorth of Burt, who is progressing towards becoming that community's potato king. He planted four acres :his season. On the tenth of July he pulled up a few vines and found potatoes only the size of a hazelnut, so he figured that he would not get a potato worth harvesting but when he finished digging lasl week he found that he had 640 bushels, and he was feeling good to think that after all his hard work had been well rewarded. At Lakota, in the Jack Reisdorfer cafe Friday, we found the place re decorated. Jack said business ha< been good. He formerly worked a' odd Jobs. Last year he had a Job with a paving crew. Clyde Shipler, four miles south and a mile west of Lakota, started to pick corn Saturday, with his two-row picker, and. he had finish ed the first load when we arrived His corn is of extra-good quality He will move to a farm near For est City next year, and new peopi from South Dakota will have th' farm where he now lives. ***** A. E. Anderson, three miles wes of Lakota, has one of the -farm owned by Albert Ogren, Algona We found Mr. Anderson looking at ter his cattle. We never find him idle. 'Last summer we called o: him, and he was then replantin, beets in a field where wind ha blown the seed away. He now ha a good crop of. beets on 38 acres He was not doing any hauling him self, for he has about all he can d to take care of his yard work. * * * * 4 Aaron Hans, who lives 1% mile north of Lakota, is a good farme EX-RINGSTED 'DOG 1 IN 'HOIIOAY' FIGHT Dr o.
