The Aljrona Upper Des Moines, Akrona, Iowa, June 9.1936 KossuthFarm Leaders Confer With Chester Davis On N. Iowa Survey Brown, Frimml, Thoreson and Loss Bear AAA Administrator ROPE TO REGAIN FOREIGN MARKETS To bring the greatest measure o prosperity to farmers America mus not only attempt to regain its for elgn markets but also must face iti responsibility of helping with agri culture meet the emergencies tha exist at the present time, Cheste C. Davis, Administrator of the AAA told a group of farmers and bus Iness men in Des Moines in northern Iowa while making a survey 01 this state. Among those from Kossuth county who attended and heard him talk were A. L. Brown, county agent; W. J. Frlmml, chairman of Soil Conservation Committee; Root. M. Loss, secretary, and O. L. There- son, member of the conservation committee. Administrator Davis had just returned from a two-months' study of conditions in Europe as they affect the outlet for American farm products. "We must recognise that we need to restore our foreign trade, and that foreign commerce to flourish on a permanent basis must be on a sound foundation of two-way trade and mutual benefit," said Mr. Davis. "That principle cannot be dodged. We must bend every effort to secure that freer commerce, to bring peace out of the economic war that afflicts the world today. "Then we must also recognize that we do not have that desired condition yet In the meantime we must meet the economic exigencies that do exist whether we like them or not. Until they are corrected we must live with them. Until our "The first of these propositions, the 'two-price system', provides for unlimited production with the surplus sold abroad at whatever price will move It, the difference between domestic and world prices being made up to exporters by government subsidy. However, farmers cannot expect to recapture world markets In the old volume under conditions that exist today. The export market on which it fully depends Is largely closed. "Export subsidies may be useful at times to meet special conditions with special crops. An export plan worked well for Pacific Northwestern wheat and might do so again. But dependence on that principle as a major part of our farm program can only lead us back into disaster. I am convinced, said Mr. Davis, "that the double-jointed policy of exclusion and subsidized exports advocated by some, is utter- y contradictory and unwoorkable wcause other nations can exclude too. If we should load the Normandie or the Queen Mary with subsidized wheat or lard and head t for Europe at full speed, the nations there would meet it at the dock with restrictions amounting '.o embargoes already In effect.'' The second of these propositions s the policy of exclusion, of nat- onal isolation supported by higher ariffs or quotas or import licenses. lit. Davis declared that a national policy of exclusion can only be disastrous for farmers. The third of the farm propos- tlons has to do with the criticism f the agricultural programs under lie AAA on the ground that they re based upon the economics of carclty. "I think I speak what Is in the minds of the farmers of this cow- foreign outlets are restored we must help the American farmer to cooperate with his neighbor In concerted effort to shift his farming operations with an eye to the effective foreign and domestic market." "Four propositions, all of vital Importance to agriculture, nave been or are being discussed DANCE CYTD IT BALL ROOM O \J IV r CLEAR LAKE Iowa's Finest Ballroom BATTLE OP MUSIC Two Outstanding Bands Arlle Simmonds and his orchestra Jimmy Jackson and his orchestra Regular Thursday price 28-4Qc Thurs., June 11 Old Time Dance Every Friday 26c Jimmy Baraett Saturday Carl Weat Sunday Ted Weems Coming June 20. Advance Ticket* fl.OO ry," said Mr. Davis, "when I say hat they are strong for the economics of plenty—but they want it practiced clear across the board in the business life of the nation as well as by the farmers. Why should the farmer be asked to stand alone among the producers of the nation, operating to the limit of his plant capacity and throwing his output on the market for what it will bring and then turn around to buy what he needs from industries that really understand the economics of scarcity and know how to apply it because they have practiced it so long? "The fourth policy I mentioned Is the present vigorous effort of our government to restore our foreign trade on a sound and on a natural basis. "Foreign commerce to flourish and continue must be built on a foundation of two-way trade and mutual benefit—not a forced one- way trade and a one-way benefit. Dur government has been for some time promoting a system of reciprocal trade agreements designed to accomplish better balance of trade throughout the world and to free commerce by reducing or eliminating the trade barriers which penalize the world today. These agreements are not strictly bilateral, but are generalized throughout the world, through the judicious use of the most-favored nation principle. Thl* generalization of benefit* i* mutual, of course, with the other party to the agreement giving us he general benefit of trade concessions It has made or may sub- quently make to other nations."

Special -Ch REFUSE INVITES FUESjrp BREED Tips to Rural, City Folks on How to Combat Nuisance If you would reduce the number of flies— household species— then see that farm manure is kept hauled out and that refuse from the home is buried, burned or kept so that flies cannot get to it These are the two mam sources of fly breeding, according to C. H. Richardson, entomologist at Iowa State College. In a bulletin Just off the press, Dr. Richardson described in detail and shows illustrations of the various species of household flies. He also describes the various methods of fly control which seem most applicable in Iowa. U*e Pita In Towns, Cities In towns and cities. Dr. Richardson recommend* placing accumulation* of horse manure, straw, cutting* from lawns and similar material in a cemented pit with a tight- fitting cover and a drain. The pit should be emptied two or three time* a week from June 1 to Nov 1. Kitchen refuse should be placet in covered garbage cans and emptied two or three times a week. On farms the use of cemented pit is not practical, usually. Dr. Richardson says. He recommends that manure be hauled and spread on the fields daily. This is the most reliable method of control. May "Stack" Manure on Farms Another method is to place the manure in rectangular, compact stacks, the sides of which are compressed by beating with a shovel. Loose straw is placed around the base of the stack about one foot from the edge. The heat and gases resulting from fermentation kill or drive out most of the fly maggots. Those which survive will transform to pupae In the loose straw at the foot of the stack. This loose material is gathered up at frequent intervals and burned or buried in a hole in the hot, frementing portion of the stack just beneath the top layer. The stack must be kept tight compacted at all times. Copies of the new fly bulletin, (By A, L. Brown, County Agent) , No. 345, "Files Are Household Pests In Iowa", may be obtained free from the county agent or by writing to the Bulletin Office, Iowa State College, Ames.
