What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

A. Williams and Frank Latuda from Latuda, Utah, visited over the week end with Dr. and Mrs. I. K. Cum­ mings. “Doc” and Frank had a great time fishing.

When You File for SS Benefits, Bring Tax Return If you intend to retire -this month and file a claim at thd so­ cial security office, you should bring the W-2 which you received from your employer, or a copy of your 1956 income tax return, ac­ cording to John Reed, manager of that office. The W-2 can be used to verify your 1956 earnings if you worked for someone else. The income tax return, plus a carefully com­ pleted Schedule C, Profit or Loss from Business, is essential if you were self-employed in 1956. Mr. Reed says that his office, like all other social security of­ fices, is having an exceptionally high - intake of claims since the first of the year, and some delays will be unavoidable. However, if claimants will come prepared with the proof of earnings des­ cribed above, this record volume of work can be processed more rapidly. Mr. Reed points out that the social security amendments of 1956, which brought new groups under the program, reduced the retirement age for women and provided benefits for the severely disabled worker age 50 to 65, are responsible for the sharp in­ crease in the work in' his office. Mr. Reed will be at the Em­ ployment Service office, Dillon, Sept. 12 and 26, between l'.OO and 4:00 p.m. ¡FORMER RESIDENT | DIES IN CALIF.

MEMORIAL COMPANY Butte, Montana WHETHER IT PAYS TO PRECONDITION CALVES DEPENDS ON “DEAL” Whether it pays to precondition calves before shipping time is a question that a number of stock- men are asking these days. Preconditioning c o n s i s t s of placing the calves on feed for about a week before shipment in- sead of shipping at weaning time. One answer to this question is the results of a preconditioning experiment made by the Montana Agricultural Experiment Station. The station found that precondi­ tioned calves can be expected to shrink less during shipment and to regain their weaning weights faster. However, in this test the costs of preconditioning offset the shrinkage gains to such an extent that it did not pay to precondition calves that were priced on un­ loading weights at their destina­ tion. About the only way that pre­ conditioning might be profitable would be if buyers could be per­ suaded to pay a premium for pre­ conditioned calves or to pay for them on the basis of lesser “shrink” than calves that are not preconditioned. it is necessary to make frequent irrigations throughout the grow­ ing season. On the other hand, a medium loam or heavy clay soil with good depth will provide good moisture storage. If the soil auger shows that the subsoil is low in mois­ ture, fall irrigation to the bot­ tom of the root zone would be beneficial. The root zone to be filled, of course, varies with the crop. For alfalfa it would be necessary to get down to a five foot depth, while three or four feet will usu­ ally take care of clovers and land which will be in small grain. Because of evaporation, top soils will not carry over moisture through the winter and fall and spring rains usually take care of top soil moisture.

FALL IRRIGATION PAYS ON LOAM OR HEAVY CLAY SOIL Fall irrigation is a beneficial practice providing it is done with judgment and under the right crop and soil conditions. The main aim of fall irrigation is to fill up thé root zone in the subsoil layer -since - this is where there can be a big carryover of moisture for the next year’s crop. A little sampling with a soil auger will give the operator a picture of his conditions. If the soil is sandy or gravelly it would do little good to make a fall irrigation since there would be very little carryover in this type of soil. On this kind of soil I know what .you mean.
