The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Io\wa, Aug. 30,1934 HERE'S CHANCE FOR $15 A TON FORSOYBEANS 50,000 to 150,000 Tons to be Purchased by Federal Agency 3 Holsteins, 20 Guernseys, 5 Jerseys, 5 Brown Swiss Heifers Entered KOSSUTH FARMS AND FOLKS Snrith and Edward Allen. Representatives Plans to buy from 50,000 to 150,000 tons of soybean hay, No. 2 grade or better at $15 per ton f. o. b. country stations in areas to be determined later are being made by the Federal Surplus Relief Corporation, accoiding *o •word received by County Agent O. A. Bcnnstetter from the AAA. This effort to conserve roughage for livestock and to divert to feed purposes large supplies of soybeans which otherwise, because of high prices, might bo harvested for seed, has been instituted by the FSRC at the request of and in cooperation with the AAA. As «i result of the adjustment programs, large areas were shifted this year to drought resistant forage crops such as soybeans. A study of the uses made of acreage retired from surplus grain crops shows that extraordinary acreages of soybeans are available tills year. Administrator Chester C. Davis says, "The way in which the adjustment programs have added to the feed supplies of the country by stimulating planting of forage crops In time of drought Is of greatest importance. Indications of these Increases In forage crops can be seen In the Increased sales of forage seed this year over last. Sales of Korean Lespedeza seed have Increased 63 per cent, soybeans 38 per cent, millet, and serge 33 per cent and Sudan grass 29 per cent." A nation-wide survey of feed and food recourccs, the most extensive ever undertaken In this country, which will be of Immense value In feed conservation efforts, has been started by the Bureau of Agrlcutlural Economics at the request of the Adjustment Administration. We feel, said Mr. Bonnstetter, that farmers of this county should conserve every bit of available roughage, hay, straw, that are of merchantable grade and utilize the coarse feeds that are below grade on their own farm. When one considers the seriousness of the shortage of both grains and rough feeds in some drought stricken territories, one can really appreciate that there will be a sale for all rough feeds that farmers can make available for sale. Pigeon Grass Has Feed Value, Ames Statement Avers E. L. Gilbert received a letter from the animal husbandry section at Amea recently, following an inquiry regard- Ing the feeding value of pigeon grass for fattening lambs. The station stated that In North Dakota, tome work along that line had been carried on and that the pigeon grass seemed to have a fairly high fattening value. In work with fattening lambs a grain mixture carrying 40 per cent of pigeon grass had almost as high a value as burley. In feeding cattle, the Ames letter says that the pigeon grass, in feed, when not over 30 or 40 per cent of the ration, has a value of approximately 15 per cent that of oats or barley. Swine do not take to pigeon grass as well as the herbivorous animals. The information is passed on for the value It contains to «vcry fanner. Mystic is Club Guest Klwanians were entertained with a "mystifying" program last Thursday at thvlr rt'Kual meeting when the mystic, Mahcndra, displayed hLs skill. Several tricks with cards, such as giuw.s- inn the correct number of any stack of cards picked out and dealing out perfect pnki-r hands, wrre enthusiastically received.

(By Lonb B. Smith) Some of the old friendg and neighbors of Carl Watson and family, who moved away from the Doan neighborhood last spring to a farm south of Woden would no jioubt be glad to learn they are get- ng along fine and hat things look bright to Carl this fall due to the good :rops he has raised his year and the prospect for higher pp-ices. Mr. Watson Is on a farm jwned by Governor Hammill and the cx- . ... governor Is sure flx- ng thing up for him. They have practically re-fenced the farm this summer and have torn down and rebuilt severs of the buildings. Mr. Hammill has plans drawn for remodeling U-e barn and house after which he will have the buildings painted gray and white. Carl says, "Come over some day for duck dinner and don't forget to bring the duck." —o— C. J. Appleqnist, who is one of Swea Cltys busy business men, has a fine stock of groceries and staple foods and although he and his boys are pretty busy they always have time for n few pleasant words and are right there when it comes to giving service with high grade goods. —o— Andre w Pcdcrsen, who llvrs north of Swea City, has not been feeling very well the past couple of weeks as he has had an attack of the summer flu. Although not fit to be working. Andrew was overhauling and painting his school bus in preparation for the opening of school. Walter Osterman, who lives east of Titonka, was with the help of a coupe of other young men, putting up his last cutting of alfalfa hay the other afternoon, and has his barn almost full or at least all the space I could see left, was about six feet in the peak of the barn. The boys were pretty busy but Walter took off a UHle time to get himself and family a supply of reading matter for the winter. What more cheerful outlook can a man expect this winter when the wind howls than good prices, a barn full of hay, the cribs full of grain, a nice warm lire, an easy chair and plenty of interesting and educational reading? —o— Simeon Scverson who has a fine farm north of Swea City on the state line was, with the nelo of the rest of the crew, cf course, hnhiilns up the last Job of the threshing run last Thursday noon, says that the oats up that way are not yielding quite as good as a Jlttle farther south In the county, but are of fine rimllty. As there was only a couple uf loads of bur.dles left and Simeon was rurning the blower, I waited until they were through and, as Is the custom In their run, was Invited in for dinner, which I enjoyed wry much. After dinner Mr. Severson and myself went ln f .o conference with the result that he Is now reading "Iowa's Best Weekly." Mi-. Severkm remarked that most of the state and county paper men have mUsed him. No cioubt due to the fact that he is the only one on the Granada, Minn., rural route In this county. Now don't crowd, boys, because Mr. Severson Is pretty well fixed or. reading matter at the present time. Dcttmer Thompson, who farms three miles west and two miles north of Swea City, Is one of the county's up and coming young farmers, who has good crops to show for his efforts this summer. Dettmer was putting new brake linings on his car the other afternoon wffien I stopped there and from what I could see was doing an ex- per job. Mr. Thompson is one of our newest additions to the large and growing family of readers of The Algona Upper Des Moines and we all wish him many happy years of enjoyment. —o— L. C. Batten, who farms about flve miles northwest of Bancroft, was not home the other day when I stopped there so I had a short visit with one of th eboys and with one of the carpenters who are building a new born on this farm. After the barn which is,almost completed is done ,they are going to bear down the old house and build a new one. Here's hoping the Hattens have a house warming after the house Is built and that mother Hatten has some of her good apple pies. Wm. Schanbergcr, who lives flve mjles north of Bancroft and a mile and a half west of the pavement has a mighty fine bunch of Duroc Jersey hogs this year. He has one stock hog which he raised for himself which is ten months old and weighs close to 400 pounds. He also has three that are four months old and weigh right at 175 pounds each. Mr. Schauberger will sell these three if taken before September 1st at $15.00 eachi your choice. Any one looking for a good red hog should get in touch with Mr. Shauberger at once. Nels Overfleld, who lives four miles west and two <mlles north of Swea City has his barn full of hay and was putting up a good sized stack out In the yard. Nels Is one of our new readers and I am sure he will enjoy our principles and reading matter. Mrs. Over- fleld had a nice garden started this fpring, but due to the dry weather, etc., this year the returns aren't going to be very large. —o— I. Ostcrgaard, who farms two mites west and five miles north of Swea City, has o fine farm 1th good build- Iggs, some of which have only been up a year or so. Mr. Ostergaard has some flne looking cows but would like to buy a couple more If he could get some good ones. Mr. Ostergaard remarked that he was not born in this country, but he likes the way we do things. He was refering to the way the general public demanded readjustment, instead of waiting to see what would happen. (By E. C. Allen) M. N. Phillips, who lives southwest of Algona was mowing the lawn the other day when I called, and he has plenty of It to mow, as he mows it with the lawn mower nearlv to the barn which is lots of work but Mr. Phillips believes inkecplng things In tip-top shape. Gto. Hackman lives about a mile south of Algona, which is the old Hackman homestead. Mr. Hackman was repairing the roof on the hen house when I called. He is well known throughout the county, having been a former sheriff of Kossuth county. C. W. Gnnder, living just south of Algona raised quite a garden. He has a nice lot of cucumbers at present, where you may obtain your supply. Notification of the soglfyean hay purchase plan of the Federal Surplus Relief corporation is being sent to county agents In the nffect- ;d areas. Under this plan the FSRC noti- ,lcd the AAA that It was "ready to purchase between 50,000 ind 150,000 tons of soy bean hay of a grade equal to or better than U. S. No. 2, at $15 per ton." The purpose of the purchase plan is to conserve the soy bean hay crop as a step toward alleviating 'the shortage of forage feeds which threatens the drouth regions. The other day I called at the Robert Bell place. H« had just finished getting the ground ready to sow alfalfa, which should get a good start, this fall. —o— Nick Wagoner, living southwest of Algona, farms 240 acres, but says he could handle more. They have tomboys two of whom work in the field, and the other two will soon be large enough to do a man's work. Nick also milks some cows which he says, pnys at the present time. —o— C. II. Potter, who lives In the same neighborhood rents most of his lard, as he is not able to work It himself on account of his health. Mr. Potter has a daughter working in the Iowa State Bank in Algona. —o— When I stopped at the Thomas Metcalf place, I found Tom hoeing potatoes. By the looks of things he will have a good crop and will not have to buy potatoes this year. S. J. Devlne, southeast of Alfrona, was hauling straw to the barn the other day when I called. They had broken the slings so were using the fork which of course doesn't go quite so fast, but beats pitching by hand. —o— G. R. Hale, who manages the Gco. Godfrey farm, Is quite a busy man as well as the help. At present they milk 32 cows, using a machine. O. R. reports they will be milking more in a short time. —o— The other day I dropped Into the Leo Jordan place and found him busy re- paiilng a wagon box. On? p'ncc- a person is never out of a Job is on a a farm. —o— The supply of Brain per grain-consuming animal unit, during the current season. In spite of the drouth, will be nbout 6 percent greater, and the supply of hay per hay-ancl-pttsture-ccm- sumlng animal will be about 17 per cent greater than otherwise might have been the case without the net downward adjustment in hog, cattle and sheep numbers and the net increa.wi In forage pasture and hay crop planting?, due to tile various commodity adjustment programs now in effect, it, has been estimated by Secretary of Agriculture Wallace. Griffith on Vacation Earl Griffith, employee in the county treasurer's office, and Mrs. Griffith are on their vacation this week. They planned to visit Mrs. Griffith's relatives, and possibly take In the state fair. To Study Nursing Margaret Flene, of Lotts Creek, left Tuesday night for Fort Wayne, Indiana, where she will take up nurses' training. ftftftrtftWVW/WV\WWAWW^^ Gasoline Prices!
