of 1 per cent potatoes 106 per cent to increase spring Wheat other than Durham 83 per cent barley 62 per cent and flax 89 per cent Intended decrease in com acreages are expressed in all states except South Dakota and Ne braska Wisconsin Alabama Missis sippi Texas and Colorado In all other important corn states inten tions to increase are expressed In the important oat producing fetates Ohio Illinois Michigan and Kansas farmersintend to decrease acreages In all other states the same acreages as 1928 or increases are intended Barley acreages will fee reduced materially in Ohio In diana Illinois and Iowa The large Increases followed severe winter killing of wheat last year In Iowa the decreased corn and barley acre age is due largely to the fact that the seedings have been apparently comingt thru the season in better condition while in 1928 a large amount of clover was plowed up on account of severe winter killing f There is a surprising tendency towards increasing legume crops and establishing permanent rota tions This tendency is true over the entire United Spates in that all states show intention to cut a larger acreage of hay in 1929 than in 1928 Floyd Women Present New

yearly records of all cows on test in Iowa teat associa tions shows that in general the purehreds excel the grades During 1928 the purebreds produced an av erage of more than 1000 pounds of milk and 30 pounds of fat more than the grades Likewise the pure breds each returned more above feed cost than the grades That cow testing association members are coming to recognize the superiority of purebreds is shown by the fact that 90 percent of the herd sires in association herds now are purebred according to Johnston High producing herds now are being developed which con sist chiefly of purebreds If that other chap really killed Goliah with a sling maybe David got credit in one account because he wrote the order from a dugout at G H Review P ULSE OF THE FARM By AKTHUK PICKFORD Four years ago when Coolidge was inaugurated more than 80 guests gathered at the home ct Henry Bruchner in Grant township Cerro Gordo county to enjoy the novelty of hearing the proceedings over the radio Last March 4 they had no company because all the neighbors have radios and couJd hear it at home So soon do luxur ies become necessities IMPORTANT IF TRUE BUT IS IT TRUE There is an article going the rounds of the press to the effect that this spring is a month late but on the inside of a certain old seedei box is marked the date of the be ginning of seeding on a Cerro Gordo farm for about 20 years and there are three dates in March Most of them are in the first 10 days of April However spring must be here for the boys are playing marbles and flying kites and some of the old hens are getting broody WHERE NEIGHBORS ARE NEIGHBORS Those of our readers who have never lived in the country and do not know country people will find it hard to get the inside of this in cident Near Aredale there was to he a funeral of a well1 known farmer Roads were almost impassable for autos Instead of sending flowers or in addition there to 14 teams and 28 men worked all Sunday afternoon and Monday morning hauling gravel into the bad places and and on the day of the funeral teams were sta tioned at three of the doubtful spots to pull the cars out if they were not able to make it on their own power THESE COOPERATIVES ADS ABE READ The CoOperative creameries some of the lumber yards are doing good advertising Something new every week for the farmers family to read and they get the habit of looking for the next one SINGLE MEN WANTED FOR FARM WORK On Mitchell County farms A Mitchell countypaper has this item That single men are ia demand this spring on Mitchell county Vanns is evidenced by the fact that four farmers appeared at the same time at the Farm Bureau office all looking for hired men At the present time the demand for men in this county far exceeds the sup ply IT IS A CASH PROPOSITION Now comes the Lyle CoOperative Creamery a member of the Land Oliakes organization with the Feb ruary report of creamery checks showing 30 that are more than The highest is 527104 and the aver age of the 30 is 514803 while Buf falo Center is just a shade off for February They have 27 patrons getting over 100 each The top is 22538 and the average DO YOU REMEMBER THESE THINGS When creamery butter was not bought by really nice people When farmers wives did a back door business by catering to the whims and tastes of their several customers in order to get two or cents a pound more than the creamery or the stores paid When cream was hauled all over the country on a hot day and all kinds went into the same tank Now creameries invite inspection as to methods and cleanliness In fiXofthejn enlarge sign declares e Bat Our Own Butter and most farmers buy their butter at the creamery It has to be good to bring a good price In New York or Chicago and certain trade brands guarantee quality WHY STOP AT BUTTERMAK1NG Now the creamery has taken butter making out of the farm kitchen why not have a cooperative laundry and let the weeks washing go also This was advocated by some of the women in attendance at the an nual meeting of the Land OLakes creameries recently The men have quit grinding feed and do not haul their hogs to market any more so why should the housewife do the washing is their contention ITS A DOGGONE SHAME That the Butler county board of supervisors should be called on to allow 62 claims for damages done by dogs to the amount of nearly Fortunately

winter of 19289 WHO IS PLANTING APPLE TREES f The week of April 15 is set aside Forestry Week and April 19 is Arbor Day and Bird Day Without wanting to detract any thing from the effort to multiply trees in Iowa we ask Who is plant ing apple trees for the boys of 1940 In our travels about the country we saw no new orchards being planted and no young trees taking the plaie of those that have died in old orchards Less than a dozen well selected trees would give a family apples from harvest time until next May and every boy or girl who lives in the country should have apples so plentifully that they could throw them at a mark What plant we in this apple tree Fruits that swell in sunny June And redden in the August noon And drop when gentle airs come by That fan the blue September sky While children come with cries of glee And seek them where the fragrant grass Betrays their bed to those who pans At the foot of the apple tree 4H CLUB ACTIVITIES Cerro Gordo Girls Organized in All
