The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, Nov. 3,1936 Farm Program For 1937 Is Outlined By County Agent, A. L. Brown DATES NAMED IN FOR WOMEN WORK Agriculture Planning and 4-H Work, Headline Activities Boys' and girls' 4-H club activities, home project work and numerous agricultural projects including soil conservation and rural electrification are Included In the Kossuth County Farm Bureau program for 1937, A. L. Brown, county agent, has announced. Commenting on the activities for next year, he emphasized the fact that Boll conservation is one of the county's major problems and probably will continue to be so for many years. Recommendations of the county agricultural planning committee which were made last spring were considered in drawing up the 1937 educational program. The agricultural planning committee was organised a year ago to work on a long time policy of land use for Koasuth county. This report and similar ones from other counties are being used by the United States Department of Agriculture in developing a land use policy for the entire country. In brief, the local committee's recommendations called for shifting some of the corn acreage to small grain, decreasing total grain acreage and increasing such soil building crops as alfalfa and cloven. In the 1037 educational program sponsored by the Farm Bureau and conducted in cooperation with the Extension Service of Iowa State College, are Included projects on eoll management, forage crops and corn Improvement. The program also provides for cooperation in the 1837 agricultural conservation program of the Agricultural Adjustment Administration. The entire program Is planned to bring Information to farmers and homemakers which will help them meet the problems which continually face them and to provide a more satisfying and prosperous rural life. To that end, the recommendations of the planning committee, AAA conservation program, add other groups were considered in outlining next year's educational activities in Kossuth county, Boys' club activities will Include dairy, baby beef, Iamb and pig clubs. Home Furnishing will be the major project for 4-H girls, in addition to which they will take part In music appreciation and health activities. Farm women are studying Loom Weaving, a phase of Home Furnishing. They also will take part in music and public health study. Eighty-six of the one hundred county Farm Bureaus in Iowa have qualified in membership to send non-voting delegates to the annual meeting of the American Farm Bureau Federation to be held in Pasadena, California, December 6 to 11, state officials revealed today. A non-voting delegate has all the privileges of a voting delegate with the exception of the vote. Iowa this year will have four voting delegates, one for each 15,000 members. This will be the largest number of voting delegates the organization has sent to a national meeting in recent years, V. B. Hamilton, state secretary, stated. Membership paid in for 1936 has topped 45,000 in the state and Is expected to exceed 50,000 before the convention starts, Hamilton said. lowans who will attend the Pasadena, convention will take a special train and with other midwest state delegates visit many points of interest enroute. They will go by way of Seattle, and return by way of the Grand Canyon. There will be a special Iowa train to the convention city. C. V. Gregory, editor of the Prairie Farmer, who recently returned from Europe, where he visited many countries as a member of the president's committee to investigate consumer cooperation, and Henry Wallace, Secretary of Agriculture, have been announced as speakers. Project Training Schools Copying the weaving craft of their grandmothers' day In articles that will lend atmosphere and beauty to their homes will be the goal of Kossuth County farm women who study a course in loom and chair seat weaving this year. The course will include four lessons, two on loom weaving and two an weaving chair seats from corn husks. Instruction will be given by Miss Nora Workman, extension home furnishing specialist from Iowa State College, in a series of training schools. '• Leaders who attend these training schools will pass the Information on to other women in their neighborhood In homemakers' study group meetings. The first step will be construction of a hand loom. The loom, made along the same principles of those used by pioneer women, Is a simple frame of wood and nails. Women will construct their own looms In the first lesson and thread them with warp thread ready for weaving. Miss Workman will give instruction in combination of colors and variation of patterns. The actual weaving will be done under her direction In the second lesson. Lessons three and four will deal with weaving chair seats for footstool tops from corn husks. In the third lesson husks will be prepared and dyed if desired. They are first twisted into a rope, from which durable, attractive seats are woven. The schedule for training schools for the lesson Is as follows: Tuesday, November 10—-At the home of Mrs. Geo. Winter, H mile southeast of Lakota. Wednesday, November 11—Swea Community hall. Thursday, November 12—Bancroft public school. Friday. November 13—At the home of Mrs. Claude Seeley, three miles east and three north of Algona. Farm women who are interested In the course may obtain information from the Farm Bureau office. Committee Sends Report Recommendations which Kossuth county fanners wish embodied in the 1937 Agricultural Conservation program have been sum- marised by the county agricultural conservation committee and the county agricultural planning committee and sent to the State Con- sevation office in Des Moines, W. J. Frimml, chairman of the county committee has announced. The recommendations were those made by farmers at township meetings held recently In all parts of the county. Following Is a summary of the report sent to R. M. Evans, chairman of the State Agricultural Conservation Committee: All of the soil building practices of the 1936 program should be maintained in 1937 and in addition the use of timothy should be considered. Oats cut for hay or pastured should be Included as soil conserving when seeded with legumes and also Sudan pastured .If seeded with a legume. The township committees should be given authority to re-adjust the 1936 bases for 1937 and that the growing of flax be allowed on virgin land, not to be considered as an Increase to the soil depleting acres. This report represents the best summary that the County Committee could formulate from the many worthwhile suggestions received from all over the county. All township reports were carefully studied. The Kossuth County* report along with recommendations from other counties In the state will be summarized by the state committee and representatives from Iowa State College. The Iowa report will be sent to the Agricultural Ajustment Administration and studied along with recommendations from other states. The expressions of farmers in all ten states in the North Central region then will be molded to meet the needs of the entire region and coordinated with program recommendations of farmers from other regions. Kossuth county farmers will be kept informed of the progress In developing next year's program until the details of the new program are finally worked out before the first of the year.

Fifteen minutes are used going to and from the office, fifteen minutes are used to eat and the remaining time is spent at the dam with a fish pole. Eddie was casting away for pickerel and pike in his usual way when he got a strike of unprecedented proportions. He hooked a cf.rp in the rear fin and worked with him and played him out in an txclted period of time which ex- reeded his allotment.

An example: the reader enters the icrcnned porch, takes off his rubbers, opens a door and calls "Meter Man", goes through in order, :l-e kitchen, the dining room, a small hall, the living room, the p«rJor, a stairway, another long hall, a bedroom and Into a closet for the light meter. Reversing his tracks to the dining room and across It to the cellar door, a stairway and to the far side of the basement to the water meter. Up stairs and out through the back door he puts on his rubbers and crosses to the next home. Well, It's just an idea.
