I* Bowman as executive secretary of the state organization, with headquarters in the Department of Agriculture, Des Moines. The plan of operation Is that farmers having difficulty adjusting their indebtedness shall first take their problems to their own county committees. These local committees will attempt a conciliation between the debtor and creditor. If adjustments cannot be made locally, these cases are to be passed on to the district or state organizations. Explaining the procedure Senator Bowman said the organization would not be deterred in attempting settlements, no matter how difficult the case appears.

I didn't know Just where it was until I ran onto him by accident. One field of corn came up fine but the one in which he was working had f few bare spots, ant hence the replanting of missing hills, as some of the hills had sprouted and then died.

On the front was written, "Eventually, why not now." I couldn't quite gather whether they referred to a rogue's gallery, or were just giving Gold Medal flour some free advertising, but anyway, I appreciate the sentiment. I also have a deep suspicion who did the dirty work. C*Hs Beck, who farms with the help of his boys the 24O acres of ground 6 miles northeast of Swea City, was fix- ng and adjusting tlreir corn plows in preparation for plowing corn the other day when I was there. As they were aretty busy I pitched and helped them a litle while we were talking and everything turned out satisfactory to all concerned. A. M. Tokheim, who farms 160 acres about 7 miles northeast of Swea City, had Just flnisheed fixing some fence around hs barn yard the other day when I stopped there. I remarked that I was sorry I hadn't got there sooner so I might help him a little. He said not to let that worry me as there was plenty more that needed fixing. Mr Tokheim la handling the farm alone thla year and expects to be pretty busy. The Union townalilp schools program and picnic which was held at the Good Hope church last ITlday was a bi success. The forenoon was spent i games and races of all descriptions fo school children with prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in ail contest*. The noon hour of course was spent in feasting Each school district of the town- hip of which there are seven, spread leir tables separately to accommodate he crowd and from th-e looks of things verybody had plenty to eat with en- ugh left over for another meal. The flernoon program which was given in he church by the different districts, was very fine and a credit to the pupils nd teachers of their respective dis- ricts. —o— Reuben Olson, who is farming a Ut- le ways from Bancroft, was plowing orn with a two-row the other day and as I thought perhaps he would Just as eave let his fine looking horses have a short rest I stopped to talk to him a r ew moments. Reuben has a fine look- ng field of corn considering the dry weather and is one of those men who look on the sunny side of life even though he may not know it. He remarked that the corn that is growing has its roots in moist soil and the corn that is not up yet will grow when it rains and at least make feed. A. G. Farrlnston, who live* about 5 miles northeast of Swea City and his neighbor, Harry Curtis, who was Iwlp ing him that day were hitching up to go to the field the other day when I drove in. Mr. Farrtngton was plowing some ground which he Intends to plant to cane and Mr. Curtis was cultivating corn. Mr. Farrtngton asked me if I had heard anything about the doings of th* corn-hog program and as we had the lineup in our paper that week I read it to them, and. incidentally took both their orders for our paper as ev- tryone should ketu in touch with news from our big county.

The Ely Anderson farm, which lies about 8 miles northeast of Swea City was a busy place last week as he has a road building crew camped in his yard.

See you again, Geo. when you're not so busy, or eating. The Glaus DeBoer home, north o! Wesley, was thinking primarily of an approaching wedding last week when 1 dropped in.
