The medal, given by .the American Forestry Association, was presented to Miss Jandl by Guy R. Ramsey, extension forester. Miss Jandl planted 25 black locust trees in the spring of 1933 in competition with girls in other 4-H clubs throughout the state. At the end of the season all of the trees were living and had made good growth. Miss Jandl's success, largely due to the care she gave the trees by watering and cultivation, was described in an essay submitted to the Extension Service with her record of the growth of the young trees. The leader of Miss Jandl's club is Mrs. Alfred Godfredsen of Burt. RAY KRESENSKY , WRITINGS GAIN MAGAZINE FAME New Republic Printed Article on "Drought" in Recent Issue Raymond Kresensky, Algona author and poet, has an article in this week's New Republic entitled "Drought." It begins with a description of a scene of plenty, and continues as the following resume reveals . . . the good fortunes of the men of the fields is turned into a blast of whiteness . . . the sun gets talked about . . . men are nervous, irritable and stubborn . . . chinch bugs, grasshoppers, rust, cholera, tuberculosis —these ar-? the scourges visible and Invisible the farmer fears. Then citing an individual case: four handsome horses flnd no food. The farmer feeds silage . . . the poisoning bites into the. Intestines—botulism. The farmer weeps. The children run away. The mother tries to talk to the floundering creatures . . . three foaling mares at $160 apiece. Now they are tankage, and fat for soap at $2.50 a carcass. Minds become colorless from contemplating the whiteness of a drought- stricken farm. The farmers momentarily are in revolt, settle down to the dumb ways, dream of rain, pray for rain, cry for rain. The temperature reaches another point. Early in the spring Mr. Kresensky had an article on Dilllnger published in the New Republic which was later condensed in the June Readers Digest. In the article he described the bank robbery which, was performed by the Dililnger gang at Mason City to which he was an eye witness. Adaptabllty Is essential for survival. Why Ice Is Best Ice produces the correct temperature without sapping moisture from the foods or drying them out. Ice produces constant circulation which washes ',• and purifies the air hy carrying the odors and gases ;I given off hy the food to the snrfae of the ice where the water ahsorhs the gases and odors and carries them off through the drain pi pi' into the sewer. Ice is dependable and economical. Algona Ice Cream and Candy Factory Phone 1270 Algona. Iowa PLAT BOOKS Latest edition of Kossuth county, published only two years ago.

KOSSUTH FARMS AND FOLKS Louis Smith and Edward Allen, Fie!-' Representatives (By L. B. Smith) Ed Peterson, who lives north of Swea City and his man were Just coming home from their south farm the other evening when I stopped there. Ed Is through threshing and said that some 5tf hid oatB turned out good and some if it not so good. Mrs. Peterson, who, as you will remember was badly burned in a brooder house fire about 3 months ago, is still in bed but able to sit up a little every day. Harry Curflss, who lives northeast of Swea City, was weeds along the road the other nfternoon when I was out that way. Harry, like the rest of us. Is wondering when the corn-hog money will be paid. Art Farrington of northeast of Swea City was doing his chores the other evening when I stopped there. Art had been to town that afternoon and brought home a load of posts in preparation for fixing fence between the showers. Mr. Farrington is through threshing at his place and has most of his straw where it will keep as he filled his barn and has a small stack outside. A. M. Tokhelm who also lives northeast of Swea City, is another man who was lucky enough to get through threshing at his place before the rain. Martin, as his friends call him, has one of the best straw stacks I have seen this year and as he says he can use every bit of It this winter. John Ennen, who lives southwest of Buffalo Center, was in Buffalo Center the evening before the celebration and like myself was sort of looking things over to see what would be doing the nox;. dny. From nil reports gi.vss Buffalo Day went over big ns It Is estimated there were over 5,000 people there that day. Wasn't then myself, that day, but hop? John enjoyed the celebration. Chris Bolle, who HITS about five miles east and a little south of Burt. was having a little trouble with his water .supply the other day when I was out there. He had pulled up his pump, and was putting on a new cylinder. Mrs. Bolie has a flno garden and from the looks of things will Iwve all the cucumbers and tomatoes that they can use. Twenty Years Ago News Taken from the fllrs of the Upper Des Moines-IU'iniblicun for the week of A.iBUit 19, 1914 The Algona Baptist minister, Rev. Prank Day, had been konored by being elected president of the Baptist Assembly at Iowa Palls which was and hUil is, held every year. A boy had been born to Mr. and Mrs. A. K. Clitf the preceding W-d- iiesciay. A. K. had reported him as being a dundy. (The Cliff family are now making their home in Ames.) The clmutauquu had Just closed the Sunday before but had not been as successful as preceding ytars. There had been much disappointment because of the failure of two of the scheduled speakers to arrive. Dr. E. S. Glasier had just sold his ckntistry practice to Dr. V. M. Oreggs of Bode and Dr. Greggs was to practice in rooms rented in the then new Haggard &. Peterson building. Dr. Glasier had quit his practice because ut falling sight. Tlie father of a former Algonian, Dr. G. FruUiS--r, ihen of Carroll, Iowa, had been shot by the Germans as a suy. Dr. Prutiger's father, u Swiss, hat! been on his way across the frontier between Switzerland and Germany intending to come to America to live wiili liis son.

Just at the right time, as I had the bad luck of breaking the drive shaft of my car, while at his place. I engaged Raymond to pull the car to town where ! the hecessary fre- palrs were made on it. While in the West Bend territory the other day I stopped in to see Fred Traub. Fred happened to be gone Just at that time to get some apples but arrived home a little later. How about some elder, Fred? _i>— Corn-hog production adjustment contract payments in Iowa up to Aug. 1 totaled $6,283,801.78, th-e AAA has announced. The expected pick-up in dally receipts of the adjusted corn- hog contracts from the various states has begun and disbursements of the firs:, installment payments of about 130 million dollars are now going out at an average rate, a report states. —o— All of the fleldwork of checking 1934 wheat compliance has been completed and counties are sending the compliance forms to J. W. Merlll of the Iowa Extension Service, state wheat agent In charge of compliance work, preparatory to forwarding them to Washington, D. C. —o— Two new administrative rulings on corn-hog contracts which extend drouth aid have been prepared by the AAA, according to a press release. Previous restrictions on feeder pigs have Ixcn modified to permit corn-hog contract signers to make unlimited purchases of such pigs during the period, Aug. 1, 1934, and Nov. 30. 19J4. Originally a producer could not increase thr> number of feeder pig.s bought in 1934 above the adjusted average number bought in 1032-33.

BUTTERFAT LAST MONTH corn-hog contract signers permits the inclusion of wheat or other small grains among crops which may be planted in 1934 without, restriction— if pastured or harvest rd for hay — on any land covered by corn-hog contracts, including rented or contracted acres. In West Bend one day last week I made the acquaintance of A. J. Jensen, who operates one of the general store at that r>lncr>. A. J. is a plfnsflnt fellow to mp-rt and no doubt enjoys a nice trade. — o — Herbert Hats living east of West Bt>nd was home the other dny when I called, as it was too wet to thresh. Herb felt ns though he hnd plenty of time to visit. He farms 160 acres, mostly himself, and is kept quite busy. Joseph. Klrmm, who livrs a mile northwest of Hnnna, was mowing sonic hay when I happened along recently. Joseph has the advantage of living near the elevator which is quite a help in marketing his grain. Of course, not requiring as much help. — o — It has been quite evident that much thought is being given to future programs for agriculture. It Is apparent that the constructive typ? of planning has not made Its appearance. II Is. however, going on and much good will come from the farmers who have their mind set on obtaining the Income that th? agricultural population is entitled to receive. The chlseler Is, however, still with us. For example tenants are reporting that a number of owners have decided that in the future they will contract the full return tfrom thB land rented to the farmers' program of the future. From all press reports little has been done in voicing definite plans for the future. However, >chlselers have only a short -sighted view predominted by .selfish Instincts which cause the unbalanced action of these individuals. Dreyer Has High Herd; Schoby Cows High For July A. A.
