or HISTORY & i;.ii3 iv, IOA 5 SEPTEMBER 1957 Price Five Cents FAYETTE, IOWA Price Five Cents VOLUME 42, NO. 10 thru the week with the editor Went into iPaul Implement for an ad Tuesday and there was a young lad riding a toy tractor, asked him what his name was and he said Dwight. He wouldn't tell me his last name, so we asked him who his dad was and he said, "Lefty Maurer." Then he gave me a lot of information: "There's Gary and Jimmy, too — we got them home. They're at school today tho." It was a fine gesture on the part of the Chamber of Commerce to give Mayor Cousins a purse to start him and Mrs. C to France. • » < • President Goekon of the Chamber had tu go away for the week-" end, so he couldn't make the presentation. He called Vice President Nelson and he was to be away also; then Secretary Kimball who wanted to take pictures. So it finally developed upon Lois Davis who did the job as committee chairman. • • • • *•' We think the next donation ought to be made' to our Wesleyan Methodist friends whose church was lost by fire last Spring and who have worked diligertly and quickly to rebuild. There's a lot of money stored in Fayette that would do a wonderful service in such an institution. Seen the new paint job in the Kexall store? Spent a lot of time over the long weekend moving and painting. We really hate to leave the old neighborhood and all the good people tfeere including the Parkers, the Wrights, the Caballeros, the Curtises, the Claxtons, the Linge's (who will be leaving soon, also), the Johnson's (Hod), EARNING MONEY FOR COLLEGE the Lamberts, the and the Carpenters. Ottersteins DENNY DUMERMUTH. 1957 graduate of Fayette High School is pictured at work at Earl's Standard Service in Fayette. Denny plans to enroll at Upper Iowa University this fall.

Humphry, late of Fayette, will be sold at public auction on September 21st at 1:30 in the afternoon along with the household goods, furniture and other belongings. While painting Friday evening Braulic Caballero came and donated his services for a while and Pat brought over coffee and sandwiches later. Then Beck's shared Saturday dinner and Sunday morning breakfast with us. The new coach, Dean Curtis, Joy and kids, Stevie and Pam, shared Sunday dinner with us, so our cooking problems *"^w e r e pretty well taken care of supplemented by frequent trips to the cafe's. * * « • In the new neighborhood President and Mrs. Garbee had our whole moving crew over for home-made ice cream late Saturday. "Buck" Maxson's got a new girlfriend. Pamela Curtis keeps asking about him. He must have made friends when he was helping Mary and me move. Don't let DR find out, Buck. In the new neighborhood we've got Mrs. McCormick and roomers, Gill, Farwell and Douglas. Then there's Mullins, Steggalls, Garbee's, Otleys, Templemans and Bakers, so we think we're in pretty good hands. » • • • I told Mary Friday she ought to let me chase her around the house oryje with a hatchet just to make a good impression on our new neighbors. • • « • So, now all we have to do is settle down, get our education, restore Mrs. Dr. Baker's jungle, edit the Fayette paper, play a little politics on the side, and raise lots of kids! Fayette has a new celebrity. Its Agnes Simper who is the new homemaker at the Catholic Rectory. She's won" prizes lor baking at many fairs and has been featured in national advertising. I know how good it is because she was kind enough to bring some goodies down to the LEADER office. We'll have a story on her later. •i • • • * See you next week. - - Don cAROUND TOWN...

They have sold their former home on east Water street. * » » » The Willie Langerman 'family returned from Chicago and have moved into the Miller apartment on King street, Going off to college for the first time Is an experience that pro* duces mixed feelings of Independence and uncertainty In any young fellow. Naturally enough, he wants to do well and he wants to have the feeling that he "belongs" In his new surroundings. An Important part of belonging Is being dressed right — wearing the clothes that fit in with his new situation and his home away from home. For the most part, reports the American Institute of Men's and Boys' Wear, Ivy styling has climbed to unprecedented heights on campuses across the country and the Ivy tradition which got Its start at colleges In the Northeast Is now securely anchored to halls of learning from coast to coast. Though subtle differences exist In university clothes In the various sections of the nation, the university men pictured here are dressed right In this assortment of Ivy-type campus favor- 11 e i. Note the slim-legged pleatlesa slacks, the button- down collar shirts and the striped sports Jackets. Favorite •hoes Include plain toe bluchers, moccasins and wing tips. In the Northeast section of the country, while a few differences do exist, the choices of •lacks, sports coats, sulta, shirts and ties are much the same from campus to campus. Here, as In many other sections, high schoolers are fast to adopt the faihlon standards of their col' Ufl-tfl University men In the South have adopted the new neater look In a big way, striving for a smart yet sensible appearance In contrast to an almost-sloppy look that was the rule Just a few short years ago. In the Southwest, where denim riders and frontier pants were the rage, most student* have switched to the Ivy-type duds of their Eastern cousins. From walk shorts to formai< wear, there is little to distinguish the clothes of the Midwestern college man from those In the East. On the West Coast, climate accounts for some variation In the type of clothes worn on college campuses, but the Ivy influence has finally made tho transcontinental migration to the shores of the Pacific. One basic difference is the inclusion of swlmwear In the baste wardrobe of college men In this ar«a until well into November. Dressing right for any college, U.S.A.. doesn't mean dressing expensively. It does mean possessing a balanced wardrobe appropriate for all campus occasions to provide that added feeling of social comfort and confidence..
