MISS ANNA WILSON JT7- n (iouifl m\ r 7 0 tatifmon J j / Publishei Linotype Operatoi Lima Correspondent Maynard Correspondent Maynard Advertising Managei Fayette Correspondent EDITORIAL Adopt The Hoover Report: BETTER GOVERNMENT FOR LESS "BETTER government at a better price" is a short definition of the Hoover Report, key portions of which remain to be adopted legislatively and put to work. Basically, H R 8002, now headed for House action, is a bill to modernize Federal budgeting methods. The Senate already has approved that. The President has urged it, along with four other measures bearing on econ omy in the governmental operation. Maybe what is needed now is insistent demand by citizens to finish this program. WRITE YOUR CONGRESSMAN. Former President Hoover has estimated that if all the commission's recommendations are enacted and im Plemented, annual savings would be $5 billions a year If Congress really is interested in economy, here is one good opportunity to show it. Citizens Committee for the Hoover Report again is accenting proposals having to do with these purposes: Annual accrued expenditure budgeting. (Under present law Congress appropriates in full for projects that may require years; when these programs are changed' the carryover accumulates—as right now, when as Senator Byrd reports such funds total some $70 billions.) Unification of non-military supply and service activities in the Defense Department. Extension of the Reorganization Act of 1949; Elimination of hidden subsidies to federal lending agencies; End of the Postal Savings system; Elimination of duplicate staffing (or triplicate) in defense support activities; A broader training program for federal employes; Modernized procedures in the Civil Service system; Improved management of surplus property disposal; prcv»& 1 likterp > r\se un ^ a " r stovernment comnetition with These are a few of the recommendations remaining for action— and essential to money-saving. Central to them is H R 8002. That is the taxpayers' money that is being spent, and the taxpayer has the RIGHT, certainly, to instruct concerning his own wishes in a matter so vital. It is not a proposal, or set of proposals, to cripple the government. It would provide "Better government at a better price." CHURCH SCHEDULE Grace Lutheran Church J. D.

More und more drivers, apparently, are exploring this new field and some spectacular re suits are being reported. Quite often these reports don't come direct from the drivers involved but they are passed on by usual ly reliable sources — ambulance drivers, sheriffs, highway pa trolmen. Little as you might guess, this Mr. Donald L. Kimball Editor and Publisher Fayette County Leader Fayette, Iowa Dear Mr. Kimball: I am taking this means, a Letter to the Editor, of placing before the people of Fayette a matter upon which a decision must be made forthwith. The original section of the Grandview Cemetery is rapidly filling and it will be necessary within a very short period of time to open the new section Thus is posed the problem the manner in which the n< section will be developed. Shall the new section be platted and opened to m- discrimate markers in the same manner in winch the old section oped? has been dove! 2. Shall the new section he platted as a MEMORIAL GARDEN, with appropriate statutes, drives and the landscaping with all in .uk- ers at ground level'.' The Board of Directors seal ized that there are advantage., and disadvantages to both suggestions however feel that the Memorial Garden Plan is the most practical, in that the typography of the new section lends itself beautifully to this type of lay out and the use of ground level markers materially reduces the expense to the lot owner in the erection of a marker and re duces the cost to the Cemetery Association in maintenance.

Interested in longevity, new field of traffic adventure islmysteries and problems, tin the calm and peaceful country road. The rural silence is split these days with the bang and clang of more traffic accidents than ever before. Some motorists are finding new thrills of high-speed driving on the country roads because they are beyond the sway of sheriffs and patrolmen. The only disagreeable aspect of this "fun" is that a lot of the drivers are losing control on tricky road surfaces and ending up dead or in hospitals, Mahy more drivers find relaxation in the comparatively light traffic of the country roads. They enjoy drifting along without the chore of paying attention. Unfortunately, many of them are So, if it's adventure you're looking for, if you are itching to risk life and limb, drive carelessly on the country roads. The death rate there is just terrific. Over 400 lowans Have Reached 100 Iowa City, Iowa — The more than 400 lowans who have reach- their 100th year are VIP's (very important persons) in an intensive new search by the Institute its In stitue is starting the nation's first statewide hunt of this type conducted by Mabel Edwards, research associate. It hopes to locate the Iowa centenarians, put them on the map—with red flags for each woman, green for each man—and get acquainted with them. In its newest bulletin the SUI Institute asks all lowans to send Mrs. Edwards names, ages and addresses of lowans 98 and older, along with names and addresses of their closest friends and relatives. One "why" is that Iowa—with less than two per cent of the nation's total population—is believed to have close to 10 per cent of persons 100 years old Qnf l _mv. . TT r, . Bureau estimates tnat out of some 4,500 American centenari ans, at least 420 of them are lowans, with the women outnumbering the men by three to one. Behind the Institute's "treasure hunt" is also the fact that old age is becoming fashionable with increasing proportions of persons of retirement age in most communities—particularly in Iowa. And as medical science con tinues to discover barriers to healthy aging and to remove the obstacles, specialists in geria tries and the physiology of aging believe that many human beings will achieve life spans of 125 to 150 years. Dr. Edward L. Bortz, for in stance, a past president of the American Medical Association, has pointed out that the life span of animals is roughly six times the length of time required for the completion of physical growth. Man's physical maturity age averages around 25. Dr. Steven M. Horvath, SUI specialist in the physiology of aging, concurs with Dr. BorU's conclusions in the new issue of "Adding Life to Years."

John Hofmeytr Bob Anthony ABOUT THIS QUESTION When I realize that my farm machinery can be damaged by fire- lighting, windstorm, theft, overturn in operation and vehicle damage, it's no wonder I pay to many machinery bflls. Does your agency have farm machinery insurance to cover all such losses? Fayette Insurance Agency ; Fsysits Phone U ' It's human nature! It's the natural thing to do! To wear lower and briet'ei clothing during the summer is not only natural, but good sense However, a word of caution ...i uuin e o'out in me not sunsnmej for any length of time without a hat. Sunstroke is more than just a word . . . and you better believe it it you stay outside a good part of the days during the summer! Caused by too long exposure to HOT sun, sunstroke could be fatal, but . . . can be prevented by sensible care. For instance, don't expose yourself unnecessarily or over­ ling to beat; don't wear heavy or tight clothing; don't exercise strenuously in the sun unless you are conditioned to it, and then allow yourself frequent rest periods. Avoid strenuous exerise just before or after meals and don't overeat or overindulge in alcoholic beverages. Do drink water often throughout the day, one glass at a time. If you perspire freely it may be necessary to increase the amount of salt you use. Fruit juices and milk contain salts and will replace the loss due to perspiration.. So . . . 'it's smart to drink lots of |r:i:!:!: them during the hot weather Should a person collapse in hot weather call a doctor at once! Move the victim into the shade and loosen any tight clothing. Feel his skin ... if it feels hot, take his temperature if you have a thermometer. If it is 105 de grees or higher try to cool him as quickly as possible. Wet his clothes with cold water, cover him with cold wet sheets or bath towels or put ice packs around his head, neck and body. Fan him and rub his arms and legs to keep the blood circulating. If you have no Thermometer, do not give first aid, wail for the Doclorl Use your head and keep cool in hot weather!
