". i February Item*' ft&m Hero & Thtti, A farmer collared hil riine*year old son arid Demanded, "Who chopped down that cherry tree?' The lad hu'ng his head and ad- mi ttedi VI did. Father dear.,1 cannot tell a lie. 1 '! chopped it with this little hatchet"'The father thereupon hoisted the lad across his knees and whaled the what»for out of him. "But, Father," cried the outraged son, "George Wash ington cut'ddwh. a, '. cherry tree when he was a boy, too, and when he was manly enough to admit it,, his father didn't wol lop - him. In fact, he . wrote th< story down for,other,little boys to study:" "That is quite correct,' said the father grimly, "But when George- Washington choppe< doWn the: tree, his poor old fa the wasn't in it." A five-year old lad was watching his mother change the baby. When she overlooked sprinkling the tot's • backside with talcum powder 1 ,'and*hurried him into his diaper, 'the five-year old reproved her sharply, "Hey,.Mom, you for•got to salt him!" '" i " ' ' * * * * I i , ', ; - A warm house without furnace tending? Sounds almost too good to be true. But it is true — in homes equipped with' automatic gas ,house- heating .units. Icy winds and winter storms will not interrupt gas service. For gas is piped underground direct to the burner, in the home. And such an, arrangement eliminates fuel bins, ' tanks, ash cans and - furnace tending. An accountant swallowed his glass: eye ! and rushed to a .storri ach specialist. The doctor peered down i'the > unfortunate fellow's throat), arid ! exclaimed, 'TyeT Ibok „.. ed into ^lot of ^stomachs -in; my 'day, ! but I ihust say, this is'^h first one that ever looked back . , at nie.V:'v;-:" : . ;( ' '; .' . / "Golly," said the stranger at a dance, "what a long and- lanky girl over there.' 1 "Hush," his host whispered. "She used to>be long and lanky —'nowadays she's tall and stately. She just inherited a million dollars.":-- , ^ : ~' Gas is constantly available. For heating, set the thermostat for comfortably regulated temperatures in the house. Gas does the rest - for the, entire heating season. Or? dering and waiting for fuel to be delivered become a thing of the past. "Quick!" ordered Dr. Fitch. "My bag of pills and a stomach pump! A fellow ; just called up and told me he couldn't live without me." "Daddy," his daughter informed him demurely, "I be lieve that call was for me." Noiseless gas househeaiing units are available in a variety of colors that blend harmoniously with game or utility room decor. Exceptionally compact this year> they allow for a good deal of welcome extra space in the home. The lush's wife trailed him to his favorite tavern. Standing at the bar next to him, she ordered a slug of bourbon. Tasting ,it, she made a wry face, Contempt covered her every feature. "How can you drink that awful stuff?" ''See, honey," he said exultingly. "And all these years you thought I was havm a good time," , The young couple had Just fin- jshed going over their monthly bills and were down to the last two. "Gosh, honey," said the man, "we're practically broke, I don t know whiclv to pay -~ the gas company or the doctor.' "Oh, the gas company, of course," answer^ Id his wife. "After all, the docti pr can't shut off your blood. 1 ; , Try GooW With GAS A total of 4,105,241 bushels o! corn from ICossuth county has been placed under government price support for 1958, as of Dec. 31»/ R. 1.

Woman Coach Puts Sentral On Map" In Basket Circles 11 boRkeiball coaches are few and far between, but if iho success of Mi-it Dennis Flaig (until recently Mina Mabel Qerllng) in any criterion, the supply may increase within the next few years. Mrs Flaig is coach of Sonirni high school's very successful girl's bnxkeiball team, which is nearing Iho end of iis first campaign near the top in fhe Stale Lino Conference. A few weeks ago, Senlral very nearly upset the dope bucket in Iho conference tournament, but Tilonka came through with a 68*62 win in the finals to take the trophy. Mrs Flaig U not boastful of her two year record (a year at Lone Rock and the present season at SonJral), but ihe ieam has been winning most of ihe time this season afier a so-so record a year ago. The Sentral mentor is no newcomer to basketball—she was practically teethed on a "round ball." She gained her early experience as a guard for four years on teams at PlPBsanlvillo high school. She then enrolled at Iowa Wesleyan College at Mount Pleasant, the only college in ihe stale which features com* petiiivo girl's basketball, and put in another four years at a guard post with teams that FOR MILADY The Coat...

Wesleyan wound up third in the nation in 1956, then placed second the following year, Mabel's last before graduation. Her first coaching job was at Lone Rock. All competition for Wesleyan's team is with team* from other states, so Mrs Flaig and h^r teammates did a lot of traveling during her four years on ihe squad. The teams visited 23 states and Washington, D. C. and basketball trips usually required from 10 days to two weeks. Sandy Fieie, an all-stater as a high school basket- bailer, was a teammate of Mabel's at Wesleyan. She majored in physical education and minored in science and received an academic scholarship her final two years at Wesleyan. Mrs Flaig likes coaching very much and also enjoys leaching biology, general science, physical education and girl's Softball at Seniral. A possible trend to women coaches in the future would do away with those "mad« MEN on the bench." { Sales Brisk In New Car Field Locally Sales of new cars and truck* continued to be brisk in this area during the past two weeks, with a total of 49 vehicles registered at the office of the county treasurer.
