They Pay for Themselves Over and Over Again IAT-PR90F WEATHER-TIGHT FIRE4AFE Good Managing of Farm Shows Profit If a farmer uses his labor and equipment efficiently, he is likely to have larger farm profits than the inefficient farmer. This fact is pointed out in an analysis of 470 Iowa farm business records for 1933 made by L. G. Allbaugh, Iowa State College extension economist. This association Is partially the result of a close correlation between labor and equipment efficiency and the size of farm, Mr. Allbaugh says. Larger farms tend to be more efficient In the use of their labor and equipment, but even on small farms efficiency In operation results in lower operating costs of machinery and man and horse labor. On farms using horses and where the crop acres per man ranged from 15 to 74, the average farm profit was $260. On those of medium efficiency, 75 to Of) (TOT :icrr.-, per man. the profit aver- apert about $500. On high efficiency tarms on which the croti acres per man ranged from 100 to 175, the farm profit avfrarr-'d nbcut $850. About the same trend was evidenced in the .study made on the farms with ti actors. A f<-w farms, however, which Iv.itl re on* than 175 cro^> acres per man had smaller profits than thos'-.havintr 150 to 174 cron acres per man. This Indicates that farmers may .'pread out t!:eir labor over lo-j much land. To the farm manager, savs Mr. All- b.-tm'ti. the full utilization of available.' machinery, labor and power !-s always an irrnortant consideration but in the prrs nt production control .svstem it mi!.•••• be <" nsidered in th" lltrht of b'-ix fit payments as well as alternative uses.

Smith) One of the tnlost Interesttnjf and exciting kittenball games of the sea- eon was threshed out U the Peterson Bros, farm south of Ti- ;onka last Sunday fternoon. The opposing teams were he east half of the ;hreshing run ag- ilnst the west. W. P. Stenzel. manager )f tlie West Siders. lad his team well mder control thereby beating the BSist Siders to the tune of 19 to 16, and incidently winning a keg of beer for his crew. The East Siders showed strong opposition up to the sixth inning at which time accord- Ing to reports they sort of "blew up." There is no doubt as to whether the game was judged fairly or not as the umpires were "Pump House Pete" and "Mok-r" Schutjer. The manager, W. P. Stenzel thinks that the East Siders were over-confident and that he— Manager stenael, will challenge all comers, dark or light, to future games. No doubt w; will see the boys at the state tournament at Cedar Rapids this fall. Heiko Adams, who Hves In the neighborhood about six miles northwest of Buffalo center, was threshing' last Monday afternoon and as I wanted to Ke him and some of his neighbors, I stopped there a few moments. Mr. Adams was threshing late oats and although they did not yield quite as good as the early oats they were of flne quality and were the cleanest I have eeen this year. The boys were all In good humor as this was the last job on the run and they were almoet through. H. E. Johnson of Titonka, is one of the town's new business men. havlne started up In the implement business In the old produce business building. Mr. Johnson moved from Cylinder, at which place his father operates an implement shop. Like father, like son, they both handle the John Deere line and H. E. has a complete stock on hand. L. E. Bosma who lives near the city of Stevens, was starting for the store to get some smoking tobacco Monday evening when I stopped there. Lewis farms 184 acres and of course it keeps him busy, but I noticed he had flne buildings and machinery, which is a big help to any farmer. W. A. Brass, who lives northwest of Buffalo Center, has a fin* farm of 120 acres with a nice set of buildings and other improvements. Besides the home place Mr. Brass rents an eighty which with the 120 makes him quite a large farm. Mr. Brass said he had no children of his own but that his Bister's son is working for him. Ilelmer Bros., who live east of the German Valley store, were doing the chores the other evening when I stopped there. The Helmer boys arc through threshing and from the looks of the grain bins which were overflowing, they must have had a pretty fair yield. Mr. Hclmers said he had been looking at the corn that afternoon and hnd found very few cars that are not affected by worms and that th-oy are K0in<r to pick seed from last year's rrop from the crib. Not a bad dea brcaii.'ic if good seed Is scarce this fall lie can ear te.-t his old corn and if he find.s plenty of IKW seed he will be nothing out except his time. —o- Win.

Allen) Martin Larsen living a couple of miles southwest of Cwrwith has completed a JUfc* new house on his place and will be moving in soon. The same Is located across the road and a little to the north of where they are now living. Sim Leigh, who lives a few miles south of Irvington, was threshing at his place the day I called. Everything seemed to be running smoothly, with cats turning out fairly well for the season. Speaking of oats turning out, reminds me of the fellow that asked another ho>v his potatoes turned out that season. He replied they didn't turn out, he had to dig them. Oh, well it's all In a life time. While visiting with Sim, who should come dashing in, but Barney Frank! of Irvington, who operates one of the general stores and is also the stock buyer at that place. Barney was delivering groceries for the threshing crew. Good service, Barney. Peter Schumacher, who operates the Diamond filling station at Whittemore Is always Johnnie-on-the-spot when B customer drives in at the station. Once in a while I fool him when driving by, and drive In just to say hello. Then there is the Rooney Cafe a few steps down the street, who have added a stock of groceries to the business a while back, and of course is enjoying more business. With more than 30 percent of all corn-hog contracts received in Washington and more than 20 per cent of the first adjustment payments due the contract signers now paid, it is expected that tlw bulk of the first installment of about $130,000,000 will be received by farmers by the end of August. Corn-hog payments to contract signers through August 6 totaled $6,345,139.03. —o— A special feed and livestock survey among more than 500,000 farmers all over the country, to be made by the Crop and Live Stock Estimating Service of the Bureau of Agricultural Economics at the request of the Drouth Relief Service of the AAA, has been announced by Secretary of Agriculture Henry A. Wallace. The Inquiry will assemble facts as of August 16, relative to the nation's feed supplies. County <jorn-hog contract compliance schools being held to train supervisors who will check compliance on Individual farms are scheduled to be completed in all counties in the state by August 23, acording to R. M. Evans of Laurens, cahirman of the state corn-hog committee. Saturday evening: upon arriving at Luverne, I stopped in the Model Cafe, which ia operated by Cecil Huff. I no- Meed the pUfce had been Improved quite a bit the last few days. New booths had been installed, walls newly papered, and all woodwork, etc. newly finished. Cecil operates an up-to-dafr.- cafe in all respects. —o— Anp. KftToftbanm, who operates the garage at Sexton, had the pleasure of pulling my car in th>? other day, as I had broken a rear axle near that place. However, August had it fixed ready to go In an hour and ten minutes after we got it pulled in. That's what I call service. Southern Iowa reports a big reduction in the chinch bug population. H.
