John has always lived in the Titonka vicinity. The Rippentrops have two children, a boy Donald, and Dolores, 16. Both children attend the Titonka high school. Dolores is a junior and Donald will be a sophomore. They both play in the high school band directed by D. Wane Collins, of Algona. During the absence of Mr. Collins, who has been in Illinois attending summer school, Woodrow Sarchett, son of the late Mark Sarchett, has in charge of the band. been We called on Peterson Bros, on their 240-acre farm two miles south of Titonka last week. They were feeling enthused because they had only two out of 20 jobs of threshing left to do. Ernest, one of the brothers, is on the corn-hog committee. He has a fine family of five children. , * * * * Last Thursday we called on M Who does (includes Cattle Di e . 1 Suff, cars. the re- 300 , er * Injury. finger < injury out to - William Peterson, who farms one mile south of Titonka.

He farms 240 acres and this year put 100 acres 'into small grain, which he just finished threshing, it going about 22 bushels per acre. William has lived here for eight years. They have a fine place. Marjorie, the only child is 12 and will finish the eighth grade this coming year. She helps with the work about the house and is a very capable manager, doing up most of the work for her mother while she is outside working with her chickens and in the garden. * • • • Frank Stebrltz, of Algona, was just finishing the threshing for Jacob Geigler, two miles north of Titonka, when we called last week Tuesday. He is spending his 13th year on the 160 he now tenants. He evidently isn't superstitious. Jacob's oats were running about 25 bushels an acre, a good stand for this year. He put in 55 acres of small grain. The Giglers have two boys and a girl, who were helping thresh. He milks ten cows, but they are mostly dry now because of lack of pasture. * • * * Geo. J. Rlppentrop, who farms 300 acres a mile north and a half mile west of Titonka, was a fine herd of 23 Guernseys. He has been raising Guernseys since 1922. He mentioned that he has one Guernsey bull for sale, which will be a year old this coming October, and he also has a roan Shorthorn bull about the same age. • George has always lived in the Titonka neighborhood. He was just going ever to a neighbor's Jacob Gengler's to help finish the threshing. George's small grain yielded about 24 bushels per acre, and he had in around 100 acres. The Rippen- trops have eight children, five boys and three girls. They are milking IS cows. * * * • We called at Wayne Keith's, four miles southeast of Burt last week. Mrs. Keith was picking cucumbers, and bad a bushel basket filled and was starting to fill another. Her own needs are filled and now she is picking to sell. The late rains have helped the cucumbers, nearly all setting in the past two weeks. , . ' . : • : •»•'*• Paul Palmer, on the old A. D.

Paul spent two days on the plow last week. » * * * Claude Seeley, of near Plum Creek, will be an exhibitor at the state fair. Claude left Wednesday with six head of Clydesdale horses.

He came here from Germany when he was 16, and will be 70 this coming January. Therefore he feels that he is due to rent his farm and move to Titonka, for he has always made his own way. From the way he could handle a pitch fork we believe he still could | thresher right away, so he pitched was telegraphed to Washington last week Monday.

The oats in many fields are beginning to grow in the shock causing considerable loss. Mother Nature seems to be playing a mean trick this year. * * * » Louis Huber, 3% miles west of Titonka on a 200-acre farm, had a 32-acre field of oats yield more thaa 1000 bushels. He has about 32 acres left, which he was threshing when we called a week ago Monday. The Hubers have farmed this place, belonging to Will McDermott, of Cresco, since 1930. They have one girl, Marieta, 14, who will begin high school this year. Marieta finds school very easy for her, with grades averaging over 94. * * * • We called on Henry Anderson a week ago Monday near Titonka. The women folks were preparing a bushel of potatoes for threshers' supper. Sandy Stebritz of Algona, was doing the threshing. The Andersons farm 320 acres five miles southwest of Titonka. Mrs. Anderson said she read in a paper how some farmers in Illinois took their meals with them because they finished each job so fast they didn't know where they would be at meal time. She says she feels that is a wonderful idea. They have a beautiful modern place. While we were visiting we were informed that she is the champion lemon pie maker of Titonka, and judging from a good-sized sample we cast our vote in her favor. * * * * A large crowd attended the annual picnic of the Cresco Embroidery club at the State Park Sunday. The entire family took dinners and attended. A generous supply of ice cream was furnished by the club. The afternoon was spent at visiting. * « • * Mrs. A. J. Brown and daughter Margaret spent Monday at the Mason City fair. * * * * Ed Hammond, of near Swea City, has a 50-acre corn field that is being.demolished by worms. The worms are green, and two or three are found in each ear. The worms are unusually bad this year but this is the worst case we know of. Edw. Reece, who lives a mile north and 1 J ,4 miles east of Ledyard, Is building a new corn crib, with granary overhead. It is 25x32x14. He is also building a els to the acre. He did not remember how they run last year. * • * Olson Bros., 2% miles south and two miles west of Lakota, have lived on the 240-acre farm where they reside five years. They raise black Poland China hogs, and they had good luck this spring. They have their quota of 170 head. They number to 113,567. Lawrence D. Brennan, Palo Alto chairman, sent the following telegram to Secretary Wallace: "We urgently request recheck corn-hog contracts be rushed. Present number checkers inadequate. Producers very impatient with tactics of statisticians and corn-hog committees of other states. We also demand other states be given same recheck by out of state checkers." Dr. A. G.
