KQSSUTH FARMS AND FOLKS By wm Harris, Farm Editor While cruising along through the southern portion of the county last Thursday I dropped into Charlie Plathe's place and found a butchering bee in progress. Grandpa Fuhrmann, Ado]ph Fuhrmann, and Matt Klrsch were Charlie helping trim up Hams four hogs. Matt was speeialiaingr == on pork chops and spare ribs. It «o happened that dinner time rolled iround while 1 was there, and I was invited to stay. The dinner turned put to be a banquet, ar/t I must say nat Mrs. Plathe Is a real cook and Mrs. Fuhrmann, recently of Texas, is a first class assistant. I believe I ate more than Matt Klrsch. Believe it or not. Smear players gather regularly these cold winter days beside the big stove n Ralph Bauer's implement shop at Vestey. Just a friendly game—not ike poker. Horses seem to be coming back If ou don't believe it, just viy to buy a W>d one at a low price. It is surprls- ng 10 i.cte the prices *»M at farm sales. Mares are outselling geldings becan«e f the renewed interest in raising colts. t is reported that stallions are valued t $100 higher, on the average, than year ago.

Philip Arndorfer is working hard these preparing to move onto the fans, northwest of St. Benedict, to be vacated soon by Philip's brother, Julian, who will move to Algona. A good many renters In the county are still looking for farms for 1934. Their reasons for moving are various, but most of them are good farmers and must find a place by March 1, or go out of business. Anyone having a farm to rent, no matter how many acres, will save someone a lot of worry by communicating with the farm department of this newspaper. The robbery and threatened torture last week of Mr. and Mrs. O. C. Robinson of Irvington township was an outrage. Farmers throughout the county, realizing that they might be the victims of similar attacks, are demanding that the hoodlums who invaded the Robinson home be put away and restrained from such acts of violence for the rest of their lives.

Farm Adjustment News A digest of current developments In Ou agricultural recovery program. Reports from various parts of Iowa of a high percentage of sign-up in many townships and counties Indicate practically unanimous support of the corn- hog program. * • • Many townships have reported a sign-up of more than 95 per cent and several counties have approached or passed the 90 per cent mark. The program is receiving the support of all farm organizations as well as of unorganized farmers. County agents, the official local representatives of the United States Department of Agriculture, report that township and county committees include representatives • of all farm organizations. Not only the younger and middle aged farmers are supporting the program but the old as well.

LOTTS CREEK NEWS Good pasture is one of the most economical feeds Iowa livestock producers and dairymen can use. According to soils and crops men in the extension service at Iowa State College, Iowa pastures can be obtained to produce more feed by proper soil treatment andl management. The state does not have enough good pasture now for the present amount of live- stock. Disking, application of manure and reseedlng with a mixture of legumes and grasses Is one of the recommended practices, the results of which may be seen in the upper right- hand picture. Below is seen a pasture which has been grazed too closely and where erosion has been allowed to gain a foothold. In the lower right-hand corner la shown a good growth of sweet clover pasture during a dry year. A typical sudan grass pasture which is one of the best crops for bridging the hot, dry days of midsummer when other pastures fall Is shown at the lower left. In the upper left-hand corner is a tvplcal pasture scene where the crop Is permitted to maintain a good growth because It is not over-grazed and the soil fertility Is maintained.

I have looked up history but so far have not found any one born on that day that amounted to a row of beans. So I am not bragging about the date. I was handicapped from the start. Old Father Time has ruthlessly piled on sixty-nine years. Mother Nature has been more gentle toward me. While she did not give me much size in body or mind she did see to it that I kept well. I never called a doctor in the sixty-nine years. I have lived with one woman over 42 years. Her and I have been on speaking terms most of the time. I speak to everyone I meet whether they like it or not. I have worked bard all my life. I smoke, never refuse a drink and sometimes stay out late when friend wife thinks I am working at the store. I have seen all sides of life and a few of the corners so have no kick coming on this old world. I have learned that it pays to be good to your neighbors, square with everybody and to speak well of your competitors. I never meddle in other's affairs. I mind my own business and we are sure having a real business this winter. 60 far 1934 has nearly doubled in sates over 1933. It is a hard time to merchandise. You do not know how prices are going to be next week. I am not holding onto goods for higher prices. I am selling them as I bought them at very small profits. I would not know how to run a store any other way. We have au immense stock, bargains for everybody. Jimmie Neville THE SHOE MAN Iowa. corn-hog contract-but "not too old to ^nT'other waHoMlbte learn iienl tiH/.lr." ami Arium Woll AQ_ In Bn " ouler »ay PO&SIDIC. learn new tricks"—are Adam Keil, 69- year-old Iowa county farmer of la- dora, and Louis Feller, 74 years old, of Victor. A recent change In administrative rulings makes it possible fcr any farmer, even though he has only one or two litters, to reduce his number of litters by one and his market hog production by at least 25 per cent and share In the benefit payment. The irule formerly said that producers having less than three litters a year did not need to reduce and could not share in the benefit payment. Wheat farmers who failed to participate in the wheat acreage reduction program have been requesting a further opportunity to sign up. These requests are being considered by administration officials as a means of getting a larger cut in wheat acreage. Much of the demand for further opportunity to sign agreements, extension workers and administration officials believe, is an increased realization on the part of the growers of the advantage of the wheat and other adjustment plans and risks involved in staying out of them. Dr. A. G. Black, chief administrator of the corn-hog section, now on leave of absence as head of agricultural economics at Iowa State Colelge. told producers attending Farm and Home Week last week that it is not too early to begin thinking about the corn-hog adjustment program a year hence. Although the 1934 program Is striking at the roots of farm troubles, it will not solve our problems for all the years to come. He intimated that the 1934 program is the beginning of some kind of a long-time planning for agriculture. Benefit payments, Dr. Black said, are important and will help farmers over the oresent crisis, but they are merely the means to an end—that end being an adjustment of production to profitable demand.
