'0n light soil all the corn, ( Js good for, is silage. Oi\ the heavier soils many p'ileces of corn show a fair prospect. In many places ears are found'fully filled and in the same field ears may be found that are but partly filled, Whether v the rains will cause these ears to fill out remains to be seen but that no doubt'the pollen was damaged in many ' places. He saM that if the farmers receive a fifty per cent crop, they^wijl probably receive as much for their crop at advanced, pricesiBS'lf they ( had a bumper crop* with'low prices "as the overhead for, harvest would »Pt be w jnuch. Most of the, grain, especially corn, is fed and as a, rule high priced ( corn means Ipw priced hogs. With a good, yield of good qualify oats and prospects of a higher price because of the corn shortage will help ,j;he farmer^ who sell their grain. Dairy conditions are ^mijch improved, we have plenty of feed, a good hay crop and the natjon-witje duputh has enabled the large quantity of bptter held in cpld .storage last spring to be sold. Fortunate, said Mr, Godfrey, are the people i who live in this part of Iowa. County Agent Morrison also spoke and emphasized Mr. Godfrey's remarks. He told of how the active farmer is too busy in caring for his crops and stock to spend several hours a day in town discussing, conditions. Four new members were taken into the .Rotary club Monday.
