The AJgona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, April 26,1934 BUDGET PREVENTS ERROR IN ASKING FOR CREDIT LOAN Preparation first Eliminates Asking Too Much, or Too Little Farmers and livestick raisers who are seeking Production Credit loans are cooperating in making up budgets of their requirements for the 1934 season, according to W. M. Townsend. secretary- trcasurer of the Emmetsburg Production Credit Association. "Heretofore many farmers would ask for a lump sum of money to finance their crop operations," W. M. Townsend, secretary-treasurer said, "with the result that many of them either under estimated tlMlr needs and fell short daring yie crop season or borrowed too orach money and wasted It." By completing a budget, showing the exact needs for the coming crop season, •nny fanners have discovered that they could get along with less funds than they first thought. Inasmuch as Production Credit loans •re based upon the liquid security of the livestock and the crops, the budget plan gives the farmers an opportunity to know exactly the amount of money they are going to need to handle their lire stock or raise their crops. By this pian, a farmer who may require $400.00 for the crop season can get his loan approved for that amount and draw the money out as It is needed. "The advantage of this," according to W. M. Townsend, secretary-treasurer, "to tbat the Interest does not start until the money is called but the borrower has the assurance that the cash is ready for him when he needs it." Four Effective Ways of Fighting Weeds Outlined; 70 Counties in Combat A battle against noxious weeds is being conducted by farmers In practically every Iowa county, organized campaigns being staged In 70 counties last year, according to R. H. Porter, extension plant pathologist. Pour ways of combating weeds are shown in the above picture. Upper right: A group of hogs pasturing a field infested with creeping Jenny or bindweed. Sheep also have proved beneficial in eliminating this weed. Lower right: A spraying demonstration conducted by Sterling Martin, county agent in Lucas county. Lower left: A Floyd county highway commission truck used In spraying the roadside. Upper left: Cultivation with a spring-tooth harrow, a practice valuable in eradicating quack grass. School Swing Hits, Injures Burt Boy Hurt: Little Leslie Oraham, who was injured one day last week while at school, had his nose broken and a cut near one of his ears which had to have Borne stitches taken to close the wound. He is able to go to school again this •week. He was Injured when struck by A awing on the school grounds. 5% and on SAVINGS Algona Building & Loan Association Inc. 1917 Authorized Capital $1,000,000.00 For 17 yean this Association has continued to pay not lew tb»n B per cent on paid-up shares and • p*r cent on installment aharea.

A county commlt- iieaaer lens Why Work Has Grown in Rural Areas (By Merle Soulte, Clab Agent) Pour-H club work teaches boys and girla the best farm and home methods, rives them an opportunity to be of ^service by demonstrating these methods to others; helps fit them for community activities and leadership, and gives them needed social and recreational opportunities. The education of youth Is always aiming toward a better educated adult citizenship. It would seem, therefore, entirely proper for extension forces to lay great emphasis on work with young people. Many believe that considerably more (extension time couM well be given to ttito kind of work be«auae t ln a long period of time trained youth will become trained adults, the objective of extension education. Program Follows Needa The general trend in the selection of subjects for 4-H clubs to study follows closely the chief interest of th« communities and also Is clojeiy paral- Irl to the trend in adult prou-nnis It Is for this reason that certain projects; 'or example, dairy calf clubs, arc selected where Interest In dairying Is prevalent. Likewise, the period of depression has quickened the interest In food and clothing projects and has Increased the activity In these subjects In both adult and junior fields. The 4-H club program of subjects can and should conform to the needs of the community concerned. To Insure this correlation a definite plan of program selection and develop- tee is appointed for both the boys' and girls' activities. This committee selects the projects, plans the work for the season-and assists the agent in super vising the work of leaders through thi year. The programs developed by these committees are approved by the county program committee and then made part of the general county farm rura program. . Resets are Proof Results of 4-H club work have rcmov «d all doubt of its soundness as an ac tlvlty. If large numbers of the youn people of today can be properly tralnei in the vocation of fanning and home making, the majority of adults in rural districts a decade hence will be better trained people. Likewise it 1 certain that the attitudes, leadershi qualities, standards and viewpoints o the club members can be so improvec that these traits will carry over into adulthood and greatly Improve all community life. Purthermpre, the ability of young people to apply new methods and the greater eaae with which they break old habits are other good reasons why extension work with youth Is effective. The farm boys and girls of Kossuth county are the greatest asset of the county. 4-H club work has something definite to offer the farm boys and girls. The problem Is to get the two together. KOSSUTH FARMS AND FOLKS Ward McWhort*r. Louis Smith and Edward Alien, Fiold Rrprtwntatives (By Edward Alien) 3. V. Ktech, located amotrt three niUes northeast of Ottosen. Is one of lose hustling fanners. I didn't stop o visit long as J. P. was Just, cranking p the tractor ready for tlw field, and know he had work to do. —o— I ran acres* many old friends in U>e Mosen vicinity, having lived there at ne tune while operating the lumber ard. —o— Unsealing of corn is taking place in ome Iowa communities where farmers ave found it necessary to pay back ielr loan to the government and, use heir corn for feeding. It Is hard to uy corn at the prevailing price of 35 cents per bushel In Uiose localities where there Is much livestock, I am old, and pasturage is not going to be plentiful hereafter because of the drouth. —o— It was one of those dosty days which hard on a person's disposition last week, as well as one's eyes. I met Mat iJertz coming In from the field, but Mat was as good natured as ever, although e said his eyes were mighty sore and ull of dust. He uses colored glasses, which he says are helpful on that kind r a day. Fame* from a small can of gasoline were sufficient to blow a farm shed to smithereens the other night in Tama county, when two farm, workers lighted a match to see how much gas was in the can they were filling. A moment's thought would have prevented the damage. Going by Fred Trap's place on my way to lunch last week, I noticed a fine flock of chickens. I take it tbat he Mrs. Is responsible for that end of he business. Our old friend, Wagner, atoo in the Ottosen territory, says he sure wants the Upper Des Moines, although he does not have an awful lot of time right now as he Is working two places. —o— I found Peter Holt busy running Uu tractor. He pulls disk and harrow both which goes to show that those who know him and say he has an eye for Business are correct. And Peter does not look a bit older than the last time I saw him, quite a few years ago. H««ry Merte Is a fine young man, farming a few miles east of Ottosen. He is planning on more chicks this year, and no doubt ttiey will be good ones. Judging by the sturdy looks of the ones he already has. (By Ixrata Smith) John Boeketmaift family near Titonka are beginning to enjoy life again after being confined with the chicken pox recently. John was cleaning up and repairing his brooder house while I was there In preparation for chicks I heard a story tart week about a big American Eagle, reported to be In this vicinity. They tell me that the bird hns a habit of standing on one leg, with its feathers droopinsr, and looks pretty lonesome. Haven't swn it myself, but it it's in Kossuth county. It's a lonR way from it.s native mountain homo. — o— Thp Harms Brothers arc starting on a new plnoe this spring, southeast of Ti:onkn about, two miles. The br-ys arc both bachelors. — o — Hnjfh Walsh lives three and one-half miles northwest of Lone Rock, on a place of 160 acres. Windmill and pump work ore Hugh's specialities. He Is known far and wide for his ability to tinker 'rm up. He also sells windmills, Aermotor, I think he said. — o— Art Priete of Lone Rock has a pretty complete line of goods. Ho operates a general store and filling station, and the community is soon going to be treated to a larger store, because Art is remodeling the store to about twice its former size. Hope la rising that wild docks are being given a chance for their life again as reports come in that various sections have seen more than the usual number of migratory birds this spring Maybe they are increasing. But next fall will take care of that. E. C. Btenttedt was out in the Held when I called at his place. He was using a spring-toothed harrow on an alfalfa field. His alfalfa was a little thin and Mr. Blcrstedt figures he might be able to sow more and cover up the bare spots. Eldln Mariow Is on his father's place, one mile east of Lone Rock. He will arm the 165 acre place himself, and had ust finished seeding when I was out hat way last week. I like to talk, and Arnold McFariand was a good listener, so when I got to his place we had quite a conversation. Arnold had finished his seeding and was working at odd Jobs around the place, and didn't seem to mind my tak- ng him away from his work for a few minutes. Stanley Larson was getting the big nead the last time I saw him. Stanley's place Is east of Burt, and I drove In only to find that he had a very fine case of the mumps. When two visitors »rrhre at the same time, this time of the year on a farm the farmer might not be very good natured and patient. And exactly that fa what both Louie Larson ant knyself decided when we ran a dead heat to the gate of the Harm S. Harringa place the other day. Louie took an order for some chicks to be ordem from the Cotton Chick Hatchery, and Hog Base Question Answered in Ruling From Administration An interpretation or Administrative No. 12. relating to the transfer of a hog baso, permits each availnblo to be split up to accommodate more than one producer where thr transfers can qualify with the provisions of the ruling. The interpretation In a letter to the Kossulh committee states as follows: "The hog base of a. retiring producer may be divided between two or more new producers, at. the discretion of Uu county allotment committee. AH sucli transfers must be made simultaneously, and the total farm acreage of the new producers must be equal to or grrater than the acreage of the farm operated by the retiring producer In 1933. All of the othrr rfquirrrwnf,-; of Administrative Ruling No. 12 rmist be complied with. '1 he rilvi.'ion of the hoc; base shall bo determined by the CYmrrty Allotment Commltt e and the number of litters cttom I. Tnble V>. hogs raised from these lltt-'rs (Item 2>. hogs already sold for slaughter (Item 2a> and all other items to be entered In Table V nf the new producers' contracts must be tlivded into the Fame proportion. In tlio contract file for each of Uy new producers there should br filrd a copy of the retiring producers work sheet, tvitli n notation thereon of l.he nanxs of the now producers involved, ami their respective percentage divisions of the retiring pr.'duc".r's hogs base." New producers who did not farm In 1932 or 1933. but who expect, to farm !n 1934. should get in touch with their township commltteeman If they have not previously made arrangements for Murdered by a Ghoct?

MEBBITT Moritatoa aad Funeral Director Phone 11 Algona, A preliminary conference of representatives of the beef cattle industry and of the AAA will be held in Chicago April to initiate action on a beef cattle odjustnvent program. • • • The conference was called by the administration to give all representatives of Industry an opportunity to analyze their difficulties and help develop a practical outline for prompt action. After a definite plan is developed, regional meetings will be held at which producers may go over the details before it is finally decided whether to put the program into effect. • • • A bundle containing 195 corn-hog pro- ducUon adjustment agreements from Marion county was the first to be submitted to the AAA for approval and issuance of benefit payment checks. By the time this column is prinU'rt the signers should have received checks totaling $35,000. • • • It is expected that the peak of receipts of corn-hog agreements will come during May. The maximum daily cap- eoity of the contiact records section in Washington, D. C., will be about 45,OM checks p^r day. • » « Joseph J. Ford, 1902-year ol.i farmer of Crawford county, 111., is believed to be the oldest producer in Ill'.nois, if not in the United States, to sign a. coin-hog adjustment contract, according to the Illinois Extension Service. Inasmuch as more than a million producers throughout the nation axe cooperating in the campaign, Ford's friends claim he Is "one man in a million." • • « Iowa pouJtryrm'n are benefitting in numerous ways from the hatchery and breeders,' code which has given new life to poultry breeding and hatchery flock improvement, W. M. Vernon, Iowa poultry txtenston specialist, believes. • • • Farm producers are now receiving the benefit of hatchery and breeder advertising limitations, which prohibits unreasonable claims as to production ability and health of stock. ¥ » • The code imposes definite restrictoins whioh protect farm producers who want quality stock. Because of the difficulty of detecting the difference in breeding quality in chicks from good and poor flocks, it has been, heretofore, fairly easy for unscrupulous hatch- erymen to undermine the efforts ol quality chick producers. • • • With the attention of dairy farmers focused upon the proposed dairy adjustment program through 15 regtona meetings jutt completed, AAA officials are making a thorough study t-f the transcripts of the conferences to determine definitely the reaction of the industry to the proposal. Particular atten tion wlil be given to alternatives and changes suggested at the conferences • • * Supplies of market hay are the small «st in years in many areas. Iowa Farmers Are Sold on Idea of Real Farm Records As a result of the numerous new uses for farm records which have developed the past year, approximately 160,000 or 170,000 Iowa farmers will keep farm accounts In 2934, G. A. Bonnstetter said on his return from a district training school in Garner, April 19th. Marlon Soults, club agent of Kossuth county, also attended. Three kinds of farm record books are available to farmers this year, said Mr. Bonnsetter. The AAA farm record book is available for farmers who wish to keep only the figures necessary for filing statements on proof of compliance with adjustment contracts and for making assessor and crop reports. For the farmer who wishes to keep a record of his farm business, the Iowa Farm Business Record or the Iowa loose leaf farm account book is available. A terlcs of township meetings will be held in Kossuth county if farmers show Interest in getting assistance with their records. Details of keeping the complete farm record books will be discussed at such meetings if there is sufficient Interest among farmers to warrant having such meetings.
