ALGONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, JANUARY 21,1937 Would Build Corn-Alcohol Plant in Algona FOR $12 JO PER Would Dedicate New Train Salesman Visiting In Ru ral Area, Claims Many Signers That effort* are being made to raise through the sale of stock, a sufficient sum to install a plant in Algona for making corn-alcohol to be used as a fuel for motor vehicles was revealed here, this week. According to reports coming into this office, a Mr. Dangherty, formerly connected with a bank in South Dakota, is the man selling the stock and signing up farmers through this vicinity. Each share of stock is selling for $12.50, and reports were that Mr. Daugherty has a sizeable list of those whom he says have purchased the stock or indicated that they will. COUNTY AGENT'S VIEWPOINT A. L. Brown, county agent, stated that although he himself is not aware of the plan on foot, nor has he heard anything about it, similar moves have been started in various sections. According to his viewpoint, the possibility of making alcohol for gasoline from corn, depends greatly on the price of corn and the world supply of that commodity. If corn prices are up, Mr. Brown believes that the cost might be a serious obstacle to making a motor fuel, or. a motor-fuel content If •prices are down, then the plan might be one that would prove a worthy outlet for surplus corn. OTSBSB PBOJECTS IN THE PAST • In the past two years, a number of suggested plants for processing form products in one way or another have been offered. Several different groups of men have come here with the idea of introducing a soy bean processing plant in this section. Invariably, however, the stumbling block to all of the projects has been the matter of ready cash. An endeavor to raise money locally to hear the brunt of the Initial cost has met with little success. The eorn-ateohol plan may have better hick, of course. Two small manufacturing organizations have also looked Algona over with a view to putting in plants here, within the past year, hut in both cases the chief draw- hack seemed to be that there was no adequate building at the present time, and secondly, that no- hody locally wanted to spend the money to put one up, and the manufacturing concerns didn't either.

E. Keil. Mrs. Ray Hansen was the leader, the subject being "Appreciation of Leadership". Mrs. R. L. Krantz gave a paper on "The History of the Women's Home Missions, the Official Organ of the Society." Mrs. W. L. Patterson presented a history of the publications of the society. Mrs. Bernard Thompson gave a paper on the "Day of Prayer." Those present were Mrs. W. L. Patterson, Mrs. Charles Cooper, Mrs. R. L. Krantz, Mrs. George Bonacker, Mrs. T. A. Dunmire, Mrs. Ray Hansen, Mrs. Will Schram, Mrs. Bernard Thompson and Mrs. Loveen Jennings.- Last minute haste in getting pork in brine so that it will have time to cure before warm weather increases danger of accidents during home butchering. Miss Fannie Gan- lon, extension home management specialist at Iowa State College, warns homemakers. Many farm families have postponed the process until Home Butchering Week, Jan. 1S-23, whfch is. designated by extension meat specialists as the latest that home butchering and curing of meat ordinarily can be successfully done. Crowding a day with canning and curing activity is likely to result in lack of attention to details and precautions. , Setting hot jars of canned meat n an open window to cool quickly is courting danger, Miss Gannon says. Sudden contact with cold air frequently causes glass jars to burst Using pads, tongs or individual jar holders will eliminate some of the danger of bursting glass while jars are being taken out of hot water bath or pressure cooker. A dependable oven indicator will help keep jars from bursting in the oven because of temperature, changes. An oven cannot be safely iieated above 275 degrees without scorching meat or causing containers to burst Glass jars should be examined for cracks and chipped edges to avoid bursting of jars filled with hot meat Time must be taken to test carefully the condition of safety valves, petcocks and clamps on the pressure cooker. Miss Gannon advises melting paraffin in a pan of hot water on the work table rather than on the stove. Paraffin and hot lard are a fire hazard when used near open flames. A jar of flour should be kept on a shelf near the stove as a convenient flame extinguisher. Kettle and pan bandies extend- ing over the edges of the stove and i table frequently cause spilling of hot liquids. Vessels of hot water land lard; sharp knive» and other dangerous equipment should not be- left around the room at random.
