DAIRY CONTROL PLAN ' BEING STUDIED Six Major Points Are Con sidered by Regional Representatives Six major points bearing on the dairy problem were beinir discussed the week of April 2-7 by AAA officials in a series of regional conferences with dairy producers all over the nation. Two conferences were being held at which Iowa •was represented, one at Kansas City, Mo., April 2 and 3, and another at Des Moines, April 4 and 5. The conference at Kansas city U for representatives from Iowa, Nebraska, MiMourl and Kansas, while the Des Moines conference Is being held primarily for Iowa and western Illinois representatives. The high points In the dairy situation being considered at these conferences &re: 1. The Index of dairy farmers' prices for 1933 was 69 per cent of the 1910- 'U?* 86 leve1 ' ** compared with 140 in 1938. 2. The total cash Income from the dairy business declined from $1,847000 000 In 1929 to $985,000,000 In 1932. 3. The milk cow population in the United States now exceeds 26 million, the largest cow population on record. 4. The tendency has been to increase the number of cows In the country. TThere are 3 percent more cows In the United States this year bhan In January a year ago and 18 percent more than in 1928. 6. Consumer expenditures for dairy products declined nearly 5 percent from 1932 to 1933. 6. The situation In recent months has been a somewhat reduced production and slightly Improved prices. The basic purposes of the proposed dairy adjustment program, as announced recently by Chester C. Davis, AAA administrator, are to Increase dairy farmers' income, hold dairy production at or near the seasonally low levels of recent months until purchasing power Jn the cities recovers sufficiently for consumers to buy larger quantities of milk products at better prices, and to provide benefit payments for cooperating producers. Farm Incomes Up Says Suvey; Did You Get a Share? An increase in both net farm Income and net cash Income over 1932 is shown in the report of the North Central Iowa Farm Business Association for 1833 Just completed by L. O. Allbaugh, extension economist at Iowa State College. The net cash income on these 56 farms averaged $380 as compared with $280 In 1932 and the net farm income $2,227 compared with a loss of $805 the previous year. Net cash Income is the figure secured by subtracting CMQ. expenditure* from casft TWMtott. Tn« farm Income also Includes Inventory changes. While much of the increase Is "paper profit," resulting from increases In the inventory value of grain or livestock on the farm, the Inventories were made on a conservative sale price basis and could be realized on If necessary, the report said. Net farm Income on the 14 high-profit farms was $3,667 as compared with $839 on the low-profit farms. The high- profit farms secured a return of $179 for each $100 worth of feed fed. as com. pared with $159 for the average of all farms and $128 for the 14 least profitable farms. The high-profit farms had higher crop yields, a higher percentage of cultivated land In legumes, more acres farmed per man and per horse power and produced more pounds of pork per litter than the average or low-profit farms. The 56 farma from which this report Is compiled are in Butler, Franklin, Orundy, Hardln, Boone, Calhoun. Greene and Webster counties. School Teacher Reelected LuVerne: All but one of the present teachers In the LuVeme public school were reelected by the school board. Supt. Evans wad given a $300 raise. Different sized pebbles or stones placed in cocoa or baking powder cans, which have been painted with a bright, hard finish enamel, make satisfactory sound-producing toys for young children. Corn for Planting In Good Condition Ames Testers Say Tests on samples of Town seed corn at the Iowa State College seed laboratory indicate that in general corn for 1934 planting Is in good condition. Although a small number of samples tested as low as 70 per cent germination, others were as high as 100 per cent, according to Dr. R. H. Porter, plant pathologist in the extension s c r- vice who is In charge of the testing laboratory. He said that a considerable number of samples carry dry rot diseases. Farmers should have their seed corn supply ready by at least the middle of April so as to make careful selection before the spring rush of small grain planting. It is always advisable to know In advance of planting the condition of seed corn. This may be determined on the farm or at the Iowa state College seed laboratory. A preferable method of obtaining samples for test is to select 100 ears from the com set aside as seed, which to all outward appearances are satisfactory. Next remove from four to six kernels from each ear and send the bulk sample to the laboratory for test. From 100 to 200 kernels or the bulk sample may be used for test on the farm If desirable. Tests may be made on the farm In an Incubator or in a room at ordinary temperature, says Dr. Porter. "A galvanized Iron tray two foot square, reinforced with boards on the sides and filled one-half full of clean sand, will make a satisfactory seedbed. Better results are obatined If a piece of bleached muslin Is laid on top of the sand. This should be moistened thoroughly, the kernels placed on top of the cloth, and the tray covered with a piece of glass or galvanized iron.

Pays Dividend April First A Message from the Manager to the General Public and 900 Stockholders In spite of the heavy expenses your company has had for property and equipment in the past six month, it will still pay olmont as large a dividend as it did a year ago. The company purchased two lots from the beet company on which it erected a. $1500.00 modern flre-proof warehouse to which the railroad company has extended a spur, so oils and greases can be unloaded in carload lots direct from car to warehouse. The company also installed meters at its bulk station to check the tank wagon drivers' loads, and just recently the increase In business necessitated adding another tank wagon driver and truck tank at, Algona and Hurt, making another expenditure for a 600 gallon truck tank. Everything has been paid for and still a nice dividend will be paid on April first. The past six months our company has enjoyed over a forty per cent increase in gross sales over a year ago. New reseller stations at which patrons may receive credit for dividends have been started at Sexton, Algona and Eurt, making six stations In all including Curwth, Titonka and Wesley. In former years our patrons would always ask, will you pay a dividend? The past, year they simply say, when do we get our dividend checks? Surely this can mean nothing else but confidence in their own cooperative company. To date "Ketchum and Holdems's" net profits run above $38,000.00 in three and one-half years. With, a few growing pains, especially this last winter, our patrons now number about nine hundred. If the company would liquidate all its assets today your shares would easily be worth double their original value. Through, tlie worst depression most of us have ever seen, including the bank holiday, this company has never lost a cash discount on any purchase made or lulled to pay interest on stock and its regular liberal dividend. In behalf of the directors and all employees I wish, to extend hearty appreciation of the loyal patronage extended in the past and kindly ask the same cooperation in the future. —J.F.STUDEK, M<fT.
