Cash receipts from the sale of

local government units are used for
public schools and roads and arc

per cent used by the forest service

In Case Of War
By J. H. DEAN
Many ibelieve that before another
harvest Europe will be engaged in
war. We all know that the - able
bodied men of Europe are now
busy preparing for war.
The United States will be called
upon to supply food and material
for the war activities of the war
engagements of Europe.
Those who have lived through
wars arid . are familiar with history
know that prices, double and triple
and even quadruple under the in
fluence of war.

A farmer who has. meat in his
smoke-house, corn in his crib, wheat
in his granary, cotton in the bale
and tobacco in the bulk will never
want. Such a farmer is rich. He is
secure. Such a farmer rarely ever
needs credit but if he does he can
get it. He is a good neighbor and
he will .have good neighbors. He is
America's No. 1 citizen.
When the farmer's store spaces.
are full he is prepared for war or
peace. So is our country.
The increase over a year earlier
of nearly , 5,000,000 hogs on Amer
ican farms January I is another
indication of the marked upward
trend in hog production, , says Earl
Hostetler, of State college.

When the price on corn is low it is a good rule to plant heavy and cul
tivate for a big yield. The soundness of this rule is based upon the follow
ing reasons: '
1st Weak-kneed farmers will cut acreage and cultivate poof ly
when the price is low.
2nd Nature rarely ever favors the country with two straight
good crop years.
The farmer who keeps his crib well-nigh full will always be ahead.
The cost per bushel for growing corn can be greatly reduced by the in
telligent use of fertilizer.
Basic O-Ten-Four fertilizer is chuck-full of "grain food." It will add
more to the yield of corn than any, other investment in connection with the
crop. For this reason it is the most popular corn fertilizer, and remember
clover and grass follow its use.
