Indications For Large Planting Area Soybeans Fanners' early planting •intentions point to a large soybean < rop and a probability of high corn production. On March 1, farmers also said they intended to increase grain sorghum acreage and decrease the number of acres sown to oats and barley. Based on these intentions, Iowa State University Economist Gene Futrell has put forth some ten- tative estimates of 1965 crop production. The economist caut- i >:is, thi.'iidi, that such estimates provide only routrh guides to pro- sj erdve crop output. Nationally, farmers told crop reporters op March 1 that they •A mid j lant the following amounts of crops: Corn, 67 million acres, down 0.7 percent from 19G4; oats, 2" million acres, down 6 percent; e rain sorghum, 17.3 million acres, up -4 percent; barley 11 million acres, down 12 percent and so> beans, 34 million acres (would be a new record) up 8 percent from last year. In Iowa, farmers furnished the following information to the Crop Reporting Board: Corn to lie planted on 10.6 million acres, up 3 percent from 19C4; soybeans 4.7 million acres, up 11 percent and oats, 2.9 million acres, down 11 percent. Algonan Has Top DHIA Herd Mrs. Paul Hum, supervisor of south Kossuth county, reports she tested 14 herds with 347 cows on D. H. I. A. and 11 herds with 218 cows on owner-sample. Highest test was the herd of Marvin Leigh of Algona, with 1.9 pounds of butterfat per cow per day. Those with 1.6 pounds were James Schneider and Gary Banwart, both West Bend; James Dodds, Lone Rock; Ronald Meyer, Rodman; and Alfred Meyer, Whit- Whittemore. With 1.5 was the herd of Louis Greinert of Whittemore, and W. G. Bosworth of Algona, 1.4 pounds. Will Re-Tape About 100 school children will have their heart sounds re-taped at the Bancroft public school .April 22. Students will be from Swea City, Lotts Creek, Sentral, and St. John's of Bancroft, in addition to four from Titonka who were unable to have the re- taping done at Wesley. The re- taping will start at 12:30. So often we overlook the important while attending to the urgent. LuVeme Lewis S.

TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And Your Neighbor'*) By Dick Po!m»r Neither fog, snow, mist, etc. shall deter this reporter from a show. I started for Wells, Minn. Saturday, but turned back at Elmore. Unwilling to concede defeat, another attempt was made Sunday and mission was accomplished. Saturday just wasn't Minnesota's day anyway. I was told dealers had their problems, with some not arriving until evening. This show was advertised as guns, coins and Indian relics, but the Indians were largely represented on coins. Aisle space was at a premium, making browsing a major project and curtailing business, I would think. Guns were very well represented. I saw many interesting hand pieces, but there was no opportunity to do much chatting, so let it suffice to say that If guns is your field, then put the annual Wells show on your list. A good proportion of the gun dealers also had some coins, for the most part modern issues, and a few displayed assorted odds and ends in the antique line. One was advertising to buy animated clocks. The specimen on display had a parlor scene with one of the clock wheels on the outside face forming the spinning wheel. This would be an interesting field. - o - Prior to the show, I had been studying the prices for the 1965 proof like Canadian sets as found in the latest issue of Numismatic News. Many are dealing in futures and the two price extremes happened to be placed right next to each other, with one offering at $13 and the other at $6.50. A third future was $10 while prices for immediate delivery ranged from $7.50 to $11. The basic price of the set with total production in doubt was about $4 and dealer buying ads start at $5. At the Wells bourse, sets mounted in a plastic holder were available at $9.50. My teacher- dealer friend, Frank Wambach of Cannon Falls, had sold out his sets in the original packets at $7.50. He still had two sets with the frosted head on the dollar. The new portrait of the Queen is very well executed and it is particularly striking in the frosted variety. Certainly this type will be the gem of the new dollar design and will always command a premium over the normal. I personally have never tried to obtain these special mint sets, but this one I bought. This frosted effect is often found on our silver dollars of the 1878-1921 design. There seemed to be an ample supply of silver dollars in dealer offerings and even the Canadian were more in evidence than usual. The student dealer from Red WinghadaQawle^scfecimen of the first issue.of 1935: The $45 price tag puts it in the "for those who seek the best and can afford it" class, but scarcity makes it just that. One other item that caught my eye was a 4-inch bronz* medal commemorating the coronation of Edward VII and Alexandria. It was quite impressive, with its detail and high relief. An interesting collection could be built around stamps, coins, medals, spoons, dishes, etc. relating to the reign of a single monarch. • There would certainly be plenty of material for Queen Victoria. Just the Diamond Jubilee would suffice. The Wells show is for WHATEVER MATURITY CORN YOU NEED You get a choice of top yielders from PIONEER. . .latest Iowa Corn Yield Test results (2-year averages) show that among the four highest yielding entries in the 6 districts, there were 9 different Pioneer hybrids—more than the next four closest-ranking brands combined. These high-ranking Pioneer hybrids include 2 single crosses, a 3-way and six 4-way crosses— with a maturity spread of 15 days. Here's proof that your Pioneer salesman has top hybrids to fit your needs and your farm. To make every acre of corn you plant this spring yield to the limit... plant Pioneer corn. It'a proved its yield in the Iowa Corn Yield Test conducted by Iowa State University. See your Pioneer salesman for these outstanding performers. PIONEER. SEED CORN See or call R. I.

It MANS, CTO AND TEMPEST AT YOJR AUTHORIZED POST'AC OEA.fK Big news for big tractor owners! ANNOUNCING THE FIRST TIRE DESIGNED FOR HIGH-HORSEPOWER TRACTORS: THE ALL-NEW FIRESTONE FEATURING FIRESTONE'S EXCLUSIVE S3' ANGLE TRACTION OAR. With the phenomenal growth of big-acre, commercial farming comes the need for a new farm tire, big enough and tough enough to withstand the torque stresses of today's high-horsepower engines ... a tire that converts more horsepower into pulling power. And we have it made: the new Firestone Deep Tread tractor tire. It's built big all around. With deeper, wider, flatter traction bars, set at our proven 23° angle for more pull in the field-longer wear on the road. How much deeper? 25% deeper § than original equipment § tires at center tread. 429c § deeper at the r-houlder. g And its tread is full cross- § section width. Size by si/e. the widest rear tractor tire tread you can buy. FIRESTONE DEEP TREAD DOUBLE GUARANTEE I If, within 60 days of the date of purchase the new Deep Tread tire drcs no', outpull any 45' bar angle replacement or premium H ES tires >.>u\e ever used, your Firestone dealer or store will (a) refund » iihin JO Ja>s thereafter the amount paid, or (b) allow the amount ji» luli credit on iny other Firestone rear tractor tires.* 2. The new Kuestone Deep Tread tractor tire isfurthcr guaranteed against defects in workmanship and materials for the life of the original t.-eaJ This guarantee provides for replacement with the lame s,zc and type of tire pro-rated on tread bar wear and based on f-ircstoiu- prices current at time of adjustment. 'Traction guarantee dues rut apply to special purpose rejr tractor tires used in rice and cane farming. And that isn't all. We added two extra plies to fortify the tread area against impacts under extreme pull. And we beefed it up with a heavier, stronger tire body, made with long-wearing, crack-resistant Sup-R-Tuf rubber, for extra seasons of service. What's more, it's made with Sup-R-Lon, the new extra-strength cord developed exclusively for Firestone tires. Combined with our new cord-process^ ing and tire-building techniques, it welds into the toughest tractor tire body ever built. Cost a little more? Sure. But then, you get a lot more. Details?
