RESTRICTIONS ON CONTRACTED LAND OFF: BONNSTETTER By County Agent Bonnstetter. Removal of planting restrictions in corn-hog adjustment contracts will enable Kossuth farmers to utilize their crop lands in practically any way they see fit to produce emergency forage crops this year, according to word from the AAA through R. K. Bliss, director of the Extension Service at Iowa State college. Liberalization of rules was made because of the drought and the consequent need of emergency'feed crops for livestock. The new rulings permit farmers to grow any forage crop they desire on land not designated as contracted acres, with one restriction. If corn or grain sorghums are planted, they must be planted for forage after a date designated soon by the AAA. Otherwise all restrictions on land they desire on contracted acres! era! times in the past few weeks we have found him calling on farmers in his district, explaining to them why their contracts were signed wrong and offering corrections. * « » » H. J. Gies, farmer 3% miles north and three miles west of Lu Verne, is feeling happy for the rain we had last week. He says in as many years as he has been in Iowa he has yet to see a real dry season. He has high hopes of a. good crop this year. The recent winds blew over his chicken house, killing several of his hens, but he faces all of his troubles with a smile and is raising lots of young chicks to take their place. * « • • The Earl Punke family moved from the farm 2% miles west of Wesley April 1 to a modern home in the south part of Wesley. Earl has been operating a dairy, delivering milk in town. The Punkes have two children, Earlene, 4, and a son Gary, age one and one-half years. over gardening again. The recent rains have been encouraging. August Huenhold, owner of the Algona Greenhouse, was entirely sold out of cabbage and tomato plants by last Thursday noon. He said that he had turned down many customers that day because his supply had been exhausted. • * * « John Brown, Cresco farmer, who recently moved with his family to Britt, has opened a grocery store which is doing a thriving business. The suburban store across from the Kossuth hospital is the property of Mr. Brown, but is being operated by the Adrian Sterlings, o£ Algona, who live across the road from Senator Dickinson's. Don Stiles, farm editor, and Mrs. Stiles, spent June 3 at Amboy, Minn., guests of Mr. Stiles' sister's family, the Lawrence Stevens. The Stevens own a large Guernsey dairy on the outskirts of Amboy. Mr. Steven had just returned from a fishing trip in northern Minnesota, and he divided his catch of pike with his friends. * » * * Newcomers to the neighborhood around Hanna Switch will be Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Gregory, who were recently married at Algona. Mrs. Gregory is the former Florence Johnson, and she was employed at the Glendale Market across from the Kossuth hospital for some time. * * * * C. A. Geilenfeld, who lives about three miles north of Hobarton, was busy straightening up an old building when we called last Thursday. The wind had twisted and bent it so that it was necessary to hitch the tractor on, and then tie it down with guy wires. * t Mrs. George Kohl, of Union, and Mrs. Patterson, of Algona, entertained the Union Mothers and Daughters club at the Kohl home last Thursday. The club meets ev- This is rather a novel idea, and if there is a renewal of drought conditions, or while waiting for grass to grow, other farmers might try it. It is worth while anyway to get rid of the unsightly willows and save the firewood while leaving tedious trimming to the sheep. Jerry Knapper, half way between Bancroft and Lakota, is the weather man in that neighborhood. He claims if it rains on a Sunday morning before the minister preaches it will rain every day that week, and he did not miss it much last week. * * * * George Rahe and Armella Menke, Bancroft, were married May J, and are now living 4 1 /,miles north of Bancroft. They will soon have a new house, for Harry Berggren and his crew of six men are putting up new buildings and have already built a chicken house, 20x24. They were laying shingles on a new corn crib, 24x30-14 when we called Saturday. The house will be 24x26-16. The Metropolitan Life Insurance company owns this farm. * * * * Everett O'Keefe, of Lakota, has the tallest corn we have seen. His stand is in fact too thick, and he has been working hard to pick out the weaker and smaller stalks. He remarked last Thursday that his corn had been planted about two weeks ahead of the neighbors' corn last year, but that a rain had come at just the right time for the later- planted corn, which was therefore better than his own. * * * * Glen H.

Martha Dreyer, Austin, Minn., is are removed. Farmers may also grow any crop they sedire on contracted acres except corn and grain sorghums. Contracted acres may be pastured or a forage crop removed. What crops are planted will depend largely on developments in weather conditions, it was said last .week before the drought locally was relieved by rains. Soy beans may be planted on contracted acres for hay or pasture. Many farmers will plant sudan grass for pasture or hay, because it withstands dry weather and will produce a fair crop under all but the most extremely adverse conditions. Others will plant corn and grain sorghums late for forage pond, three miles southwest of Algona, has decided to earn a little extra cash on the side.
