The Algona Upper Des Moinea, Algona, Iow&» Horember 27,1934 Economic Problems Recognized m 1935 County ^^ . —-.. - ' "" '"" ' ~" TWP. OUTLOOK MEETINGS THIS MONTHPLANNED Farm Program For Next Year of Unusual Interest Due to Changes Holding of agricultural outlook meetings, keeping farm records, aiding cooperative marketing groups and as- sstance on the AAA producton control and drought programs are among the economic projects in the Kossuth County agricultural program, said O A. Bonnstetter, county agent. Tile county program was adopted re- recently in a meeting of directors ant committees of the Farm Bureau and representatives of cttor groups interested. In the outlook meetings to be helc in each township during this month and the fore part of December, Information on the present agricultural situation and its protjaWe bearing on 1935 conditions will be given. Specia attention will be given to the com hog and the feed and seed outlook. year, especially last winter, provided office space, stenographic help and other facilities to the corn-hog work. Mr. Bonnstetter and local leaders held several series of meetings and cooperated with the county committee. Locating and distributing feed and seed in cooperation with the state and federal governments and Iowa State College, will be an Important activity this year. Information will be made available on how to make the best use of available feeds. Farmers will be assisted in locating seed and feed suppllse through an exchange to be conducted by the county agents office. State Inspectors for Fodder, Stover Last week, for the flrst tme in history, a group of men were trained to be federal inspectors of corn fodder and stowr. The school for this purpose was conducted at Ames, Iowa, by W. H. Host-ermnn, a representative ol the Hay, Feed and Seed Division, of Washington. t>. C. Material \ised was gathered by Iowa State College anc by members of the AAA Forage and Conservation department. The school was a new thing, due to the fact that this is the first year that corn fodder and stover will ba marketed ta any extent. Men trained were the regular field supervisors of the Forage Conservation department. It was not originally planned to us? the KOSSUTH FARMS AND FOLKS Louis SmHh and Edward Mat, FhH Representatives Peterson Studio Algona, Iowa PHOTOGRAPH FOB XMAS Haver them made early. Our studio la open Sunday and evenings by appointment until Christmas lor your convenience. WILL P. BBOWN, Manager 47-50 ,;hat no group of men had as wdie practical knowledge through experience in working with corn cutting and harvesting thus far this year as the field supervisors and that they could be more readily trained than any other group. Interest In keeping farm records has fle j d men for this purpose, but it was been stimulated both by the need of . . . records for compliance statements and income tax 'reports and by a desire to hare » closer check o;i where profits and losses occur. The county program also Includes assistance to cooperative marketing associations on market analysis, and to creameries on records, analysis and accounting. Cooperation with the federa) government, nnd county production control associations on corn-hog and wheat production control programs Is pledged in the county program. Mr. Bonnstetter. as local representative of the United States Department of Agriculture and the extension service, will assist with the corn-hog educational program this wincer. The Farm Bureau during the past Railroads Asking Freight Rate Boost A hearing was held in Chicago early lasC week before th-? Interstate Commerce Commission. The railroad presented claims to show that there must be an Increase in freight rates. The fanners were represented by the farm organization leaders and a large number of business men's organizations, commercal clubs and Chaimbers of Commerce, etc., who maintain a traffic department. Much of the brlefa were prepared by members of the, staff of Iowa State College, Ames, Iowa. This Is another case where there Is Insufficient Interest among the general shipping public to look out for their own Interests, says O. A. Bonnstetter, county agent. It seems that the fann- er in particular has always taken what Is handed out. This should not be the case as there are always public hearings on these matters and this gives them through their organisation an opportunity to present evidence why the rates should not be raised. (By E. C. Allen) The other day I stopped In at Jack's Dine and Dance In JlAiVeme. Jack did not happen to be in Just then, but I had la chat with Ed Ram- lus, who works there.

It should be paid out in cash at once, instead of waiting until 1945, so the boys could buy things needed for the family, home and farm. He also stated that some people say the boys will squander their money May be tome of them will, but it will at least put a large amount of money in circulation and if the boys are not far •enough pasi 21 to use their money to good advantage they never will be.
