UIU Announces Drive Results FAYETTE — Upper Iowa University officials announced today that a total of $13,247.50 in cash and pledges had been received through June 22 for the eolleae's centennial fund campaign. Of the total, $10,075 came in cash. The total was about one third of the anticipated income of the drive which had as its goal some $.19,000. Dr. Eugene Garhee pointed out that there are many problems confronting those who would provide adequate opportunities of higher education for our youth He said. "One problem is that of identifying the students who will benefit from such education experiences. Another is (he task of building suitable academic programs to meet the varied talents of the students enrolled." Upper New Farm Bureau Fieldman Starts July 1st Gilbert Copper will commence the duties of Fayette County Farm Bureau Fieldman July 1st. At present he is field man in Delaware County where he has been the last three years. The Copper family will make their home in Fayette. Copper operated the family farm in Floyd county prior to going into service. Two years were spent in the China. India, Burma theatre. The last six months were spent working fo>- the Indian and China Departments of Agriculture through the The Upper Iowa University president continued. "The paramount problem, however, is that of providing the required financial support. The major burden of nisi at Upper loWa Univer.-r.y villi bills heavily upon the student and his family. All cili/eiis - evers where - benefit from !;..\• hit; college trained people livim, iii their local communities." "Fayette county citi/ens, ,i> i> line of people anywhere in the United States." he went oil. ":e- qiiuc that government and the professions be ably manned; that industry and agriculture advance on the basis o! new knowledge. I'.ecause of this, the interest of society in the education of youth is growing." lie also pointed out. "Yet, it ss the parents who bear a large share of the cost of college education. This they do out of family affection — often at great sacrifice. But they personally receive little or no money return from their investment." (Expresses Feeling) Dr. Garbee closed his remarks by saying, "Our sincere thanks go to those who gave. The adminis (ration of Upper Iowa University and particularly those of us who have given to Fayette county so graciously of our time and leadership, would be less than human if we were not deeply hurt by the obvious lack of understanding, sympathy and, more particularly, Jack of financial support from those in Fayette county who profit most from Upper Iowa University and who gave little or nothing during this centennial fund drive." More funds were raised in Fny- elte than in another community in the county. A total of $5,965 was raised in the community. Oelwein followed with a total of $:i,4til in cash and pledges.

Acreage Reserve Payments To Be Made Soon The Fayette county ASC office has announced that it will start making 1957 soil bank acreage reserve payments next week. Ellis W. Thompson, chairman of the county ASC committee, said that payments will be made by mail in the order in which compliance checking in the field and in the office is completed on in dividual agreements. This means, he stated, that the first farms to receive payments will he those where corn or wheat, or both, were far enough advanced to permit early checking, where no excess allotment crop acreage was found and where all requirements as to location, kind, amount and use of soil bank land had been fully met. Making of payments will continue as rabidly as the compliance checking work can be done and participating farmers make any acreage adjustments found necessary to meet the terms of their agreements. Chairman Thompson declated this system assures participating farmers that each will receive his payment as quickly as possible after his compliance has been determined. He also declared the system should prevent many unnecessary inquiries as to when payments will be received. The 411 corn agreements signed by Fayette county farmers for 1957 called for total possible acreage reserve payments of $3 !I9 .M23.- 20 on 80G3 acres. Understanding Iowa Children By Lloyd Lovell Mrs. Carrol was nearly shouting. "You kids are just about driving me out of my mind." she said. "Now you settle clown and stop shaking the house apart." Outside, the rain still poured down. The children hadn't been outside for two days, and the strain of being cooped up was telling on everyone. What to do about children's bottled-up energy in wet weather can be a problem, and there probably is no perfect solution to it. There are several things that can help, however, when they are adapted to the ages and interests of the captive youngsters. For older children, when the weather is warm enough, playing in the rain in their swim suits can be fun. Or they can wear boots and raincoats and sail boats and do similar things.

Miss Stade the Volga and Wadena Presbyterian By Bob Hullihan Seems only fair, men, that you should be warned. The old male dominance of the highways and things automotive is about to be challenged. An able group of ladies is quietly at work now organizing a huge meeting of women to be held at state's first Women's Traffic Safety Conference. They'll be taking a critical look at what we men have accomplished — or failed to accomplish — in traffic safety. (Let's not try to crawl out of this one, boys.

And, fellows, let's not pass off this conference as just another get-together of the girls. Nothing like it has ever happened before 1„ T --. , nation. The women meeting at the conference will be delegates from state-wide and local organizations. They will be representing hundreds of thousands of women. They'll meet at the invitation of Governor Loveless and they'll have the support of the state safety department. There's a potent new force arising in traffic, men. The only way we can hold our own is to do a better job in safety ourselves. Let's start now before the ladies decide to put us on the sidelines. though, it is the younger children who seem to suffer most, fi om being confined. Children's songs on radio or records or with mother playing piano can often be used for moderately active games that, do not "shake the house apart" but that give children a chance to work off steam. Sometimes they can help with rather strenuous furniture moving for housecleaning. Painting and drawing at a stand-up drawing board consume more energy than drawing at a table does. Some sets of building blocks, home-made or not, are heavy enough so the young child can get exercise playing witn them. Even if the children's indoor activities must all be quiet, just providing enough variety can help overcome boredom. Helping the child move from game to game and from room to room at reasonable intervals can help keep him from getting intolerably restless. Until someone invents a way of having it rain only at night, however, many mothers will always have to decline whether it's worse having the children inside or outside on wet days. -I FRESH BEEF With that delicious corn fed flavor.
