Smith) Fred Sheeley, who about three .miles north of Swea City, was stacking 3orn fodder the other day when I was out that way. Mr. 3he»eley remarked ;hls was the first fodder he had ever stacked. Considering all the loose bundles tie had to contend with Fred was doing a first class job. Barney Hesvick, who lives north of Swea City about one-half a mile, has nost of his fall work done, but as he says, he can always find plenty to do on his others farm, which lies south of Armstrong, and he said he was well pleased with the way the crops turned out this year. —o— V!}m. Mabus, Jr., and family vfho ive southwest of Lakota, were corralling their chickens the other even- nig when I skraped at their place. Will said a bunch of them had been roosting In the trees all summer but ,hat now he was trying to teach them xj go into the hen-house and the 'derned fools" didn't seem to get the dea very fast. Olson Bros., who live In the community southwest of Lakota were feeing pretty good the other evening when stopped there. No, it had nothing) X> do with the 18th amendment or its Iterations but he boys had Just fin- shed husking corn at noon that day, so why shouldn't they be happy? While at the farm sale north of Swea City on the farm Louis Appelt has been arming the past years, I enjoyed meet- ng several of our old as well as new- r subscribers among whom I met Clarence Uhr who is now farming near Hancock, Minnesota. As I understand, Jit. Appelt Is moving to Charles City n the near future where he will take ver the management of the WNAX II station. Walter Richmond who farms south east of Armstrong was over at his son', Wayne Richmond, stacking corn fodde: the other afternoon when I stopped a the latter place and you may be sure when the stack is finished it will "split a raindrop 1 ' as Mr. Richmond is an old hand at this work. (By Ed Allen) Edwin Wlchtendahl, who lives east at _ West Bend. got home from town just as I arrived there the other day. Ed- irtn stated that he was through picking x>rn, but had a few Jdd jobs to do yet before winter sets in. Edwin broke in .lew corn picker this fall, -o— James H. Johnson, who operates the R. M. Larson, who farms southeast f Armstrong was fixing the starter of Is truck the other evening. After this e was going to put in a new battery Because as he said winter is not so far way and when lie wants to use the ruck he wants It to start. Mr. Laron is one of the many farmers who are now through with most of the fall rork. meat market in LuVerne, always carries a fine line of meats at all times, and is always ready to take care of your wants in that line. —o— I stopped in at the John P. Mersch farm just southeast of West Benfl. and they were just finishing picking corn that afternoon. I also ran across George F. Bcsch there. George lives about three or four miles northeast of West Bend. While driving out northwest of Algona one day reocntely I stopped in at the B. G. Bonnstetter place and found M. G. greasing up the car. He said he was through picking corn. At the Robert M. Loss place I found Mr. Loss busying taking care of tho seed corn, storing it for next spring. While near the Hobarton elevator I stopped in to chat a few minutes with R. L. Reid, the manager, who is always on the Job. Going through St. Joe. I stopped at the Phillips "68" station and had a few minutes' visit with Lawrence Becker who operates the station, who informed me that business was plcknig up. AuffOBt Helnan who lives a few miles north of LuVerne, said he had about 1200 bushels of corn to husk the other day when I called, but was running three teams, so would not take long to finish If the weather permitted.

BEET GROWERS OF NORTH IOWA HOLD MEETING Ames Man Leads Group a Buffalo Center; Plan New Quotas The government's program for ad- lusting the sugar beet acreage in the United States was explained at a meet- ng of sugar beet growers of this territory at Buffalo Center on Tuesday evening, November 13. The plan was discussed by H. E. Nichola of the Iowa State College, extension service. Ames, In charge of the sugar beet program in Iowa. Explaining the economic and political background of the sugar situation, Mr. Nichols said, "Low prices for sugar during the past few years has been lue mainly to the world over produc- ion rather than the lack of a protec- Ive tariff. In fact until the past year here has been steady increase In tariffs on sugars Imported into the United States. The same situation Is more or ess true the world over. "Sugar production has built up be- Ind tariff walls to the place that there has been In recent years a heavy world over production which has made sugar growing unprofitabe In many countries. The most notable example of this is Cuba where in 1926-27, the value of the sugar crop was $286,000,000. This had dropped to $42,000,000 in 193132. "Since tariffs have not raised sugar prices to the producers," Mr. NichoU continued, "a system of quotas Ls being tried out by the present administration under the Jones-Oostlgan amendment to tile Agricultural Adjustment Act. Under this plan the amount of sugar allowed to be produced in the United States by sugar growers is greater than that produced in any year up to the present, except 1933. Cuba has been given a light increase over what she has been fumUhing the United States in recent years and therw has been a corresponding decrease in the amount allotted to tlfc United States from our island ijosse.ssiorus tuch as Hawaii, Porto Kico aud Philippines. "Under the government's program for the sugar beet producers of the Un- SUles will be 1,566.Ititi thort tons of raw sugar. This quota, has been divided among the sugar beet growers of tlu; United States on the basis of their past production. Similarly Urn quota will be divided to each factory district aud the acreage of sugar beets required to reduce this quota will beset. 1 ' Tliis acreage will be divided among the sugar beet growers, with the growers who sign the adjustment contract receiving first consideration. The ac- reagw allowed each sugar beet district will be some pace between 90 and 100 percent of the 1933 acreage. Since there was a reduction in acreage in 1934 over 1933, Uw average reduction around the Masoii Cty plant will be much, less than 10 per cent. According to Mr. Nichols, the beet contract goes with the land and not with tlw grower aJid only those growers who produced beets in 1933 or 193* or both, are eligible. Under the contract the growers agrees to reduoe his acreage for 1935 the required amount, not to use child labor In the production of beets KOSSUTH PLANS OUTLOOK UNIT MEETINGS SOON Township Groups to Study Discuss Plans for Farm in 1935 LEADERS ATTENDED TRAINING SCHOOL Following a district training school on the Iowa agricultural outlook for 1935 in Mason City on November 15, plans are being made for a series of township meetings In Kossuth county to discuss the information, G. A. Bonnstetter. county agent, announced In addition to Mr. Bonnstetter, county agent. Clark Scuffham, H. J. Bode and A. E. Clayton. Algona; Chas. M. Sormann, West Bend; J. H. Warner, Swea City; W. J. Frlmml. and Guy M. Butts. Wesley and GT.O. Wlnkel, Whit- ;emore attended the district meeting. Agricultural economists from Iowa State College discussed the present situation regarding farm commodities and gave Information that farmers may use n planning their operations for the coming year. The agricultural outlook nformation this year is available about three months ahead of the time t has been announced In past years. Economists also discussed the general business and agricultural situation Ire feed and seed situation and other problems of current inlerest to Iowa armers. Detailed Information on all hese subjects and their probable cf- "ect on 1935 conditions will be given n the series of township meetings to be announced later. Expect Prrcc Advance A substantial advance in prices of ,11 meat animals is expected, said Mr. Bonnstetter. Fewer animals probab- y will be slaughtered In 1935 than 934, the average klllng weights will >e less and the quality and finish be- ow average. Reduction in slaughter s expected to be pronounced after February, the greatest shortage coming next summer. Decrease in px>rk protection, the outlook report Indicates, will be relatively greater than that of beef or lamb. Supplies of feed Brains this year are he smallest since 1881 because of the unprecedented drought and the number of fat animals on the farms at the :nd of this year will be the smallest since 1899, G. A. Bonnstetter said. Higher prices this winter may tend to stimulate too much planting of some crops In 1935, where adjustment programs are not In effect, the economists warned. Last spring; it was estimated that this fall's pig crop would be 38 percent smaller than that; a year ago. Because of the drought and shortage in feed supplies the fall pig crop probably Is reduced even more than that amount, economists said. Breeding for next spring farrow undoubtedly has been lighter than a year ago so that lighter hog marketing's can bo expected througl 1925, Judging from present facts. With expectations of a normal corn crop next summer, however, and will the prospect of lowered corn prices a year from now. breeding for 1935 fal farrowing might be expected to increase. Without o continued control o: production, marketings in 1936 anc 1937 might return to 1932 and 1933 levels with an adverse effect on market prices, Mr. Bonnstetter reported. Cattle on "28 Level Government purchases of cattle In drought areas and forced selling because of feed shortage have reduced cattle numbers to the 1928 level. A arger proportion than usual of cows and heifers have been slaughtered the past few months and no marked Increase In cattle numbers is expected un- .11 1936. Movement of stockers and feeders to 'arms In the cornbelt the past summer and early fall was greater than during the same period In 1933, but fell iff sharply during October, economists said. Particularly marked were shipments into northern Iowa where feed xmditlons were relatively good as com- jared with the drought devastated a'- as. Many of these cattle probably will ave to be sacrificed at low prices this inter when feed supplies give out, economists said. They urged an inventory of livestock and feed supplies on «-ach farm and that farmers keep only the live-stock which they can carry tlirough the winter. This will help prevent flooded markets and low prior* in the late winter and spring. Farmers will be given an opportunity to attend township or community meetings to obtain information material and outlook predictions for 1935 crop year. Meetings to bo announced later.
