Upp»f 0« Metrtti thuridoy, April 16, 1959 THE FUTURE OP FARMING The family-type farm was hewn out of the Wilderness, but sorne folks are wondering if Pa, Ma and the kids can save it. In this day and age will plain hard work/ and a willingness to accept smaller pay than mosl other people are getting, turn the trick? Push button farming is not a thing of the future, it is here. .Corporation farming is gaining on some fronts — in broiler chickens, in hogs, °in beef cattle, for instance. Will the family-type farm succumb completely to corporation farming? Will farms grow so big with great machines that the family will be too'small a unit to run them? Will the'people who do the work change from independent farmers to hired hands? Each year in the past few years there have been 100,000 farm families disappear in the nation, and some of them are in Iowa. Fewer kids are deciding to stay on the farm. And if the family farm fades, community institutions and dependent business* will fade with it. , The future of the family farm is indeed something that concerns not pnlysthe farmer and his family, but every unit of community and business life. " • One of the basic facts in all of, the pros and con regarding farm programs is that one viewpoint definitely dooms the family farm; the other viewpoint 5s trying to save as much of it as possible. We trust the latter viewpoint — and program — prevails. '* * * NOT TAKING OWN MEDICINE At a recent convention in San Francisco of the American Academy of General Practice, on organization of doctors, free physical examinations were given to the doctors; 21 of the first 350 doctors examined turned up, with serious illnesses heretofore undiagnosed. The 350 doctors in question each submitted to an examination of about 40 minutes. The illnesses .uncovered were mostly in six major groups, diseases and ailments quite common in the news. . ' We have often heard the good advice that we should see our doctor every so often for a physical checkup. Most of us probably don't. The results among the doctors themselves indicates that 4t is good advice. And evidently it is good advice, that, even the doctors should heed. They' doh't • seem to always take their own medicine. * * * • MARTIN'S EXCUSE FLIMSY Marshalltown Times-Republican: — And the revelation that Senator Martin has been as guilty • of nepotism as his 'Democratic counterparts — who have been lining their family's pockets at public expense—certainly won't improve GOP • chances of winning in I960, should Martin decide to seek re-election. a I E.

We refer to the matter of getting a hew car for the Governor. The most unconcerned person in the whole matter seems to be the Governor himself. It does not seem to hurt his pride to drive one of the lower priced cars and it doesn't seem to matter much whether it has a stick or an auto mafic gear shift. We congratulate the Governor on his willingness to ride in 'the kind of a car that is in the price range of most of the people who elect* ed him. It shows good sense, and is just another good example of why Herschel Loveless Is get ting increasing respect from folks over the entire state, regardless of theft stated political party affiliation. , .....,: * ..*.-* ' TO THE GREAT OUTDOORS . Grinnell Herald-Rsgisler: — Now that warmer weather is here, the trek to the great outdoors is beginning. , Of .course, the first part of outdoor » living begins real close to the house, with lawn raking and the many other lawn conditioning jobs that have to be done. Outdoor living has become increasingly popular over the past few years. Anymore, the man of the house is regarded as "different" if he doesn't know how. to barbecue »a Steak on the outdoor grill. There arc still some of its who are. hot completely -sold" on the spring-summer-fall outdoor living,. -but by and large, most people have been taken up._with the fever and are enjoying themselves .tremendously in the many phases of outdoor living available in today's world. Although we cannot say too much for Iowa's winters, in light of the one we have just gone through, . we can. say that Iowa's spring-surnmer- fall weather is most conducive to enjoyment of outdoor, living and life— so have fun! * •• • * . '''•.* •••'" •ACCOUNTING OF FUNDS WOULD HELP Britt News Tribune — A bill has been filed in the Ipwa legislature to bring the low.a high school athletic setup under administration of the department of public instruction. : ' While there" may be several reasons for such a 1 move. there is one that stands but. That is fthe making of an accounting for 'the large sums"o£ money that are connected, with athletics and other school activities. At the present the public is pretty much -in- the dark about the operation of the fin' ancial end of athletics which they help to support. Britt released a report of activity funds in the annual report each year, a bound copy of which can life" gotten at the school office. The 1957-58 report showed a total of $61,181.64 handled in activities-^-$8,519 of which was spent out of the athletic "lurid. While there is strong pressure from the state department to de-emphasize athletics, they seem to be able to effect adequate control without actually having direct supervision. For example, they tried to force through the rule against interscholastic sports on the junior high 'level. To many objects tempered the ruling and events, instead, are limited in number. The state department has also managed -to reduce"th'e number of athletic events high .school teams can play. This has all been to the good since athletics can get .put, 9 f hand a s experience has shown in some schools. • Unless ^ftiere has, fceen flagrant mishandling of funds by the Iowa Athletic Union there is stjl a big question as to whether a state office can administer the tiusiness of athletics in the state any better than Js being done .at; the- present time It's one thing to criticize the way something is "being done; and another to do the job any better The finance of state athletics, is a delicious pie tlwit needs proper .supervision for the most efficient serving. . More public knowledge of the finances would be beneficial but whether putting it in the hands of the educational end of our state school structure would help,, is again guestionabje, ' STRICTLY BUSINESS : " , -^\,^^-*"'»^^^^C^«'.-<rii^^*^^"t.i ?

THE LATE STARTERS — Finally, businessmen are starting to move into politics. The big number of Congressmen and Senators elected last November with the help of organized labor was a convincing argument that businessmen had .better start supporting candidates'.. of their, own and in a big way. Still, some businessmen ' are afraid their stockholders wouldn't like the idea. And there are those who simply feel it's beneath them to dirty their hands in politics.
