PAGE EDITED BY ARTHUR PICKFORD BETTER SOCIAL LIFE BETTER SCHOOLS 1929 PLANTING PLANS ARE GIVEN Usual Crop Acreages Is Aim of Farmer U S Report Shows Farmers in the United States ire planning to plant about the Itcual crop acreages in 1929 accord Ing to report issued by the U S department of agriculture The report shows farmers inten tion to decrease Durham wheat by 395 per cent corn by 6 of 1 per cent oats 8 of 1 per cent potatoes 106 per cent to increase spring wheat other than Durham 83 per cent barley 62 per cent and flax B9 per cent Intended decrease in born acreages are expressed in all states except South Dakota and Ne braska Wisconsin Alabama Missis sippi Texas and Colorado In all other important com states infen tlons 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 be reduced materially in Ohio In diana Illinois and Iowa The large increases followed severe winter lulling 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 coming thru the season in better condition while in 1928 a large amount of clover was plowed up on account of severe winter killing 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 sii intention to cut a larger acreage of hay in 1929 than in 1928 Floyd Women Present New Phase of Public Health for Mothers CHARLES CITY April new phase of public health is to be presented to the women of Floyd county during the week of April 15 This work is under the direction of Miss Alma E Bartz R N of the extension division of the State Uni verslty ofIowa i ft jto rjmKirril in coflutyand Jelty by the Farm Bureau and coun ty 3 i As Everypnasa of the womans life

SheppardTowner plan under the di vision of maternity and infant hy giene The other two departments are the dental hygiene and infant hygiene A two reel film Well Born will be shown Purebred Cattle Boost Production AMES April per cent of the cows with butterfat produc tion records of more than 400 pounds in Iowa cow testing associa tions are purebreds according to Floyd Johnston dairy husbandry extension worker at Iowa State col lege Study of the yearly records of all cows on test in Iowa test associa tions shows that in general the purebreds 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 hreds each returned 5623 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 per cent of the herd sires in association herds new are purebred according to Johnston High producing herds now are being developed which con sist chiefly of purebreds If that other chap really Gollah with a sling maybe David got credit in one account because he wrote the order from a dugout at G H Review ULSE OF THE FARM By ARTHUR PICKFORD Four yearsago when Coolidge was inaugurated more than 80 guests gathered at the home cf 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 could 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 seeder 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 be a funeral of a wellr known farmer Roads were almost impassable for autos Instead of sending flowers or in addition thereto 14 teams and 28 men worked all Sunday afternoon and Monday morning hauling gravel into the bad places 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 ARE READ The CoOperative creameries and 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 in demand this spring on Mitchell county larnls 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 OLakes organization with the Feb ruary report of creamery checks showing 30 that are more than The highest is 27104 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 5100 each The top is 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 tastesof their several customers in order to get two or three 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 declares We Eat 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 BUTTERMAKING 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 53000 Fortunately the dog owners have to pay the bill WELL ANYWAY WE BEAT THEM The only satisfaction we get out of the last lot of snow is that we must now be at the top of the list and close to 70 inches for the winter of 19289 WHO IS PLANTING APPLE TREES week of April 15 is set aside as 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 la 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 place of those ttiat have died in old orchards Less than a dozen vyel selected trees would give a family apples j 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
