SHAFFER MRS. FRANK CUMMINGS MiRS. RALPH DICKINSON Publishes Linotype Operate Printer Maynard Advertising Manager Maynard Correspondent Lima Correspondent EDITORIAL THE SECOND BARREL This week we unceremoniously pull the trigger of the second barrel of the 4-H Beef project gun. It has been suggested by good authority that our county is one of the few in the state and also the entire nation where the field offices of the Farm Bureau are not located in the county seat. This is all the more reason local merchants should lend some support for 4"H projects by the purchase of a beef at the fair. Because this office is located here many rural people come to town and many shop here. The activities of the office are centered here and supplies' etc. for its main tenance are purchased from the city. REVEREND FELTER IN THE PULPIT Aside from trying to be denominational in any sense we seek here to put some praise where praise is due Aside also from the criticisms of the fair city and its business world, no one will deny that we have some very great people living here, and they are Fayette's most valuable asset. After long years of carrying the heavy burdens of a minister of the church, Reverend O. J. Felter, occupied the pulpit again last Sunday. And everyone must agree that it was good to see him there. It must have been a personal thrill for him to do the same. With many years of service behind him and many useful years remaining this patriarch of the local church, chose, with a background of intense Bible study behind him to talk on the words of Micah, "What doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, love mercy and walk humbly with thy God?" When you hear someone of Rev. Felter's age and experience expound upon any subject, you must assume that it is deep and meaningful because a lifetime of study and experience is behind it. And out of it all will come words of 'the summing up' as Somerset Maugham chose A ITEKit) CHURCH EVERY WEEK PRAY EVERY DAY CHURCH SCHEDULE Grace Lutheran Church J. D.

Fayette County is one of the few counties wherein the Farm Bureau is not located in the "county seat" town or city. We sometimes wonder if the business people of the little college city ever pause to meditate and appreciate having the Farm Bureau. The 4-H Club "baby beef" auction will be tomorrow, Friday the 23rd, at the Sales Pavilion, on the Fairgrounds. It would be good sportsmanship, good expression of appreciation, good "public relations", if UJU, the State Bank, the Chamber of Commerce, would send some representatives to the 4-H Club auction, buy a baby beef, perhaps put on a barbecue, on UIU Homecoming Day. The correlation being that UTJU will never have any better student prospects than the up- and-coming winner group within the 4-H Club membership. A little spending of this sort could very well do more for good public relations and for dear old Main Street than several C-C dinners, before too many dash off 16 miles to the southwest to do their Friday-nite shopping. • • • • • We thought there must be bank robbers or perhaps Russian paratroopers out our way last Satuardy evening, by the show of armed forces. But we learned that only a local lad had turned his Studebaker wheels-up into the edge of a woodslot. We hill- and-hollow residents should be thanklful for plenty of peace officers with plenty of shootin 'irons, to handle such an emergency. • « • • We were so highly pleased with our invitation to the lovely Nicholson-Borland wedding last Sunday, that we played hooky from the Muzzle-Loading Gun Club shoot, to attend. In our case, that is taking a wedding invitation mighty seriously. We were also very pleased with the bride's beautiful "waltz length" (if that's the right name for it) wedding gown. It just wouldn't seem right nor reasonable for sprightly athletic Carolyn to toe encumbered by a long formal with a "train". » • • » When a young man attempts to drive his hot-rod and pet his girlfriend all at the same time, two mighty important jobs are being half done. THE DRIVER'S SEAT Sgt. Jim Turner was talking about one of his favorite subjects — driving schools and how they help to reduce motorinj accidents. Jim is no theorist on this subject, but knows what he is talking about. As head of a police department traffic squad, he and his men are usually the first to reach the scene of traffic mishaps. He had jus.t returned from the hospital where he had taken two of the victims of a particularly messy smashup that occurred about a half hour earlier on the highway at the north edge of town. "Teen-age hot rodders?" he was asked. "No sir," he replied, ''both drivers were mature men who should have known better." "Did you know," Jim went on, 'that accidents involving younger drivers have been cut more than 50 per cent sfince our high school started a driver training program? The best thing that could happen around here would be some sort of iprogram that would send a lot of our older drivers, men and women who learned to drive 10, 15 or 1 20 years ago, back to school for a modern Gene Wm. Singer Fayette, Iowa Phone 247 • PLUMBING • HEATING • WIRING • BOTTLE GAS driving course." Driver education for adults who have been piloting cars most of their lives may seem a little ridiculous at first glance. But. Sgt. Turner tius the bucking of many traffic experts in his belief that a large number of adult and presumably "experienced" drivers could benefit from instruction that would bring them up to date on the changes that have made motoring so much moi 'o complex and hazardous than It was when they learned to drive. To .support his point, Jim pointed to a report in one of the traffic publications. It showed that more than one out of four drivers who were re-examined after allowing- their driving licenses to lapse were not even, able to recognize the meaning of standard hand and arm signals or recognize traffic signs by their shape. "When it comes to such things as stopping distances, bad weather driving, safe speed limits, driver courtesy and the use of night driving aids like the reflective license plates used by some states and color-coded reflective signs used by all slates, I'll bet most of those people would be stopped^cold," he ex- know how to get in or out of a parking place safely and some have physical handicaps that make driving under any conditions dangerous." In several states and a number of cities, frequent or serious traffic offendei-s are required by the courts to attend corrective education classes. The effectiveness of such training, even when applied to hardened repeaters, is proved by the fact that a big majority of those receiving it have no further involvement either in accidents or violations of traffic laws. If up-to-date driving instruction is made available to adults before they are involved in accidents, and if mature drivers who learned to drive in an earlier and simpler era can be induced to take advantage of it, Sgt. Turner and other traffic ex perts are sure they will have fewer accidents to report and fewer victims to transport to hospitals or morgues. Bible Comment:' / ] \ Promises WefMake In Times ofyStress Are Soon Broken 1 WfHEN the Jews were rebuild" ing their homeland after the period of captivity, there was a high note of patriotic fervor, •despite constant enemy attack, clangers and privations. Under selfless, courageous and inspired leaders, the people built with vision. There were few lapses. But 100 years after the return from exile, the people had Jearned so little from the experience that apostasy arose. They had turned once again to careless, selfish and evil ways. The depth of their failure is evident in the intensity with which the prophet Mnlachl reproves them, They had turned .from the lawn of Qod; they had robbed God In not yielding the ; tithes and offerings for the services of religion and for the benefit of all, ! A curse rested upon the nation. And yet a bountiful and merciful C!od was anxious to pour out His blessings upon the pooplo, "Prove mo now herewith," Malachl represents God as saying, "if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour vou out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it." Do not these words apply with equal viyidness. to. ciur own time? A little* while ago. w« hero in America were in the depth of u torrlblo depression, A contrlto spirit seomed evident In the nation. We were ready for almost any sacrifice or to adopt any measures if we could only get out of the slump that had affected so much in our lives.
