The Algona Upper Pes Mdines, Algona, Iowa, July 28,1936 HOMEPROJECT LEADERS PLAN 36-37 SEASON Met Last Week, Outline Program For 'Coming Year Home Furnishing course VT, with the major project as "Loom Weaving" is to be studied by Kossuth county farm women this year and was planned Tuesday, July 21, In a meeting; of the county home project committee. Mrs. Sarah Porter Ellis, state H. D. A. leader of the Iowa State College extension service, assisted the following committee members in outlining the year's work; Mrs. Jerry Heetland. Ledyard: Mrs. J. H. Warburton, Lincoln; Mrs. A. J. Brown, Cresco; Mrs. Ray Miller, Buffalo; Mrs. W. J. Barr, Cresco; Mrs. Geo. Hackman, Cresco; Mrs. J. C. Skow, Wesley; Mrs. Ray Fitch, Riverdale; Mrs. Agues Seely, Plum Creek; Mrs. A. C. Phllbrook, Greenwood; (Mrs. Martin Becker and Mrs. Tony JaridI, Portland. The course will be presented In a series of four lessons by Miss Nora Workman, home furnishing specialist from Iowa State College, cooperating with the county farm bureau. Lessons will Include Fundamental Principles in Loom Weaving (construction of a simple loom, planning color and design for n woven piece and stressing first principles of weaving); Loom Weaving, < construction of small pieces of weaving from yarn, carpet warp, etc., demonstration of variations in weaving); Chair Seats from Corn Husks (preparation of corn husks);, Chair Seats from Corn Husks (weaving seats and demonstrations of the weave). Miss Workman will give each lesson to four groups of from 20 to 25 women gathered in training schools. These local leaders will take the lesson complete with the same illustrative material and demonstrations back to the homemaker study groups in their communities. In this way the home economics information is made available to every woman in the county. SUDAN SEEDED NOW WILL PROVIDE LATE HAY CROP WITH GOOD YIELD Should Be Cut After Firs Frost; Is Drought Resistant The community included in the year's plans a series of homemaker open meetings to be held In the county in September. A meeting will be held in each section of the county, so that all women may find A late fall hay crop, yielding .75 to 1.25 tons per acre, can be obtain ed by seeding sudan grass the lat ter part of July or the first week in August, providing there Is en ough moisture to start the crop, ac cording to H. D. Hughes of the Iowa State College Agronomy department. In 6 years of experiments at the college, sudan planted around July 26 has yielded a very satisfactory hay crop—averaging 1.32 tons per acre. Little Danger of Poison Sudan grass is the best, nnd in most cases, the only crop which can be planted this late in the season and yield favorably. Danger of prussic acid poisoning, which is believed by many to be serious in sudan grass after a frost, is very slight in a planting of sudan grass seed which is free from sorghum. Seven years of testing pure strains of sudan at the University of Minnesota have revealed that when it is planted alone, or when strains of sudan free from hybridization with the sorghums are grown, no evidence of prussic acid has been found in frost-injured grass. After thorough curing, however, any danger which might result from a sudan-sorghum mixture is entirely eliminated. Stubble field or any other idle ground may be utilized for the planting of this emerengcy crop Best results will be secured if the seed is broadcast at the rate of IS pounds per acre upon a thoroughly disced field. The ground should be harrowed and rolled Immediately after seeding. Cut After Pint Frost Late fall sudan hay is harvested in the same way as other sudan hay, except that one should not cut It until after the first frost. The most practical method of curing from the standpoint of economy and quality of hay Is to cut with the mower and cure in the swath or windrow. Hay of better quality can be obtained by curing in cocks for a few days after partially curing in the swath. Sudan grass hay surpasses oat hay from the standpoint of yield, has about the same feeding value as either oat hay or timothy, and is considered the most satisfactory non-leguminous emergency hay crop available for use in Iowa. Because sudan is quite drought resistant, farmers need have no fear of the earlier planted crop drying up during the present drought. It Is not necessary to cut t now in an attempt to salvage a portion of the crop, as there Is no danger of the drought preventing "urther growth. Farmers who planted sudan grass arller in the year—May 20 to June 0—have discovered that the Sudan makes an excellent pasture when Tactically every other grass is ried up. Year in and year out, sudan will furnish a large amount of satisfactory pasturage from the last part of June until frost and will, unless pastured heavily, make n hay crop as well. (By A. L.

L. Look home, for there was a record crop on the eleven trees Mr. Look has in his orchard. There are four varieties, early and late Richmond, Montmorency and Norello and when the cherries were all picked there were a litle more than 25 bushels and the largest tree, an early Richmond, had five bushels alone. Mr. Look's place has !-•% acres. 9 acres of which are used for raising seed corn. In 1934 it averaged 75 bushels per acre and he sold most of it for $3 per bushel. He has about 500 chickens but he enjoys working with his bees the most. He had 13 swarms last winter but In the early spring a rubbish fire spread one night and all but two swarms were burned. However he has acquired more swarms until now he has ten. In his yard there are more than 40 varieties of trees and shrubs. On one plum tree, Juanita, there were plums seven inches in circumference last year. There are 15 apple trees, 11 bearing fruit. One Northwestern Greening won him three blue ribbons at the Kossuth and Clay county fairs last year. Another Greening has Sweet and Yellow Transparent branches grafted on it and it bears three kinds of apples. The Pound Sweet branch came from a tree at his boyhood home in New York. He has a room fixed up in his basement where he can keep the temperature at 40 degrees and they had apples until about June 1 this year.

WWlrfVVArVVSrVYWJWAWWWArVW^^ Monday, August 31. has been of- fiicially designated as Farm Bureau Day nt the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines, and state Farm Bureau officials will present a special program in the Assembly tent at the exposition grounds throughout the day. Officials of the organization are now contacting a number of nationally known farm leaders in an effort to bring several outstanding speakers to DCS Moines for this event. In addition to the speaking program. Farm Bureau leaders will give special recognition to a number of individuals as well as to leaders and those who have made outstanding records In affiliated groups, including the 4-H clubs of the state. It was also announced that the organization would present a special exhibit booth in Machinery Hall nt the fair in which the work of the various departments of the organization would be presented. State leaders \vill be in attendance throughout the fair. As in past years, the Farm Bureau camp at the state fair grounds will again be conducted. This camp annually houses thousands of members of the organization who rome to visit the exposition, or to lake an active part in it with exhibits. "We are making every effo-t to work out a Farm Bureau Day program at the state fair this year, which will attract one of the larg- crowds of farmers in the history of this annual feature." Frani is Johnson, president of the organization stated. "Farm Bureau minute men. numbering approximately 15.000 in the state, will receive a special invitation to take part in the program this year." BIO Keldy KM started the Job of detassellng the fields In which hybrid corn Is being produced. This is quite a job Its the fields must be gone over at least once a week if not oftener. Bill thinks that with somewhat favorable weather the corn will make a pretty fair crop. Marry Bode Is busy at present operating a threshing machine In his ring. As long as the grain stays dry his job should not be so hard, but let's hope it gets tough before the season ends. Dale Clark, our Sonth end cow tester, says the production has dropped off considerable with the dry. hot weather, and also due to the flies. Additional feed should be Siven this time of year to help out aecause of the short pasture. Emil Stotfel, living just north of town, like many other farmers, reports his outs crop much better han he expected. Most farmers report but very little rust or scab present in their grain. Claud Seeley out In Pltrm Creek township Is fitting some of his horses for the fairs again this fall. Cland has Ciyrfesrfaies. some being very good Individuals. Good shade should be provided for livestock during this hot weather. Animals which stand about panting with tongues hanging out, are not going to produce flesh or milk economically. Glenn Roland got rid of his fat cattle a few weeks ago. According 15 Acres Timber Burns, West Bend Between 10 and 15 acres of timber burned on the Harry Morey farm, south of West Bend, last week, in a fire that started from un unknown origin.

A few farmers are reporting a lot of young grasshoppers coming on. Should they reach the stage of doing damage, remember poison bran can be obtained through the Farm Bureau office. Two young fellows were In the office the other morning looking for farms to rent. They were from Kimball. South Dakota, and reported the crop as all burned out there and that they were buying feed now for their livestock. A bulletin. "Woodlands for Iowa Farms", is now available for distribution. It contains a description of methods of planting and management of woodlands and includes a transcript of the Iowa law exempting forest tracts from taxation. Hog price* win not be affected greatly by the drouth until later in the summer. If dry hot weather continues during the next several weeks there may be considerable liquidation both of half finished hogs and of piggy sows. • • • We have In the Farm Bureau office a very long Hat of farmers in South Dakota who have lambs and cattle to offer for sale.
