FFA """" Receives Award Maynard — The Maynard chapter of the Future Farmers of America, one of the largest in the state, just has received the State's 1957 award for superior rating. It is one of only 26 chapters out of the 303 in vocational agriculture to receive this honor. Eighteen chapters qualifi-u for a standard rating. Besides meeting the other qualifications required, the 'Maynard chapter was outstanding in its service to the community with its safety education, its rat control program and in assisting farmers in weed and insect identification and recommended controls. It also tested soils and seeds for farmers and ran corn yield cheeks. The club participated 100% in having productive products projects of either corn, oats, soybeans or live stock. Twenty of the 50 boys enrolled the past year completed showing dairy or beef animals or sheep at the Fayette county fair. During this week the chapter will run soil tests free of charge for any farmer in the West Central Community school district requesting that service. The importance of such a course of study in our schools becomes increasingly important as we realize that six out of every 10 boys in the United States will eventually become farmers or be associated with farmers through industry, banking or other business dealings. William Stephens who has been the advisor for the Maynard chapter for the past two years will serve the newly organized school district ,in the same capacity. He anticipates an enrollment this year of approximately 65 boys.

Old Opera House Sold At Auction Maynard — The large frame building on Main street known as the opera liou.se has been sold at public auction to Ed Hoehne who lives southwest of town. This two-story building approximately 50 by 80 feet was built about 1890, according to early residents. Edmund Packard, father of Mrs. Charlotte Ranney, and then bvit recently returned from a town in the state of Washington where an opera house just had been completed, was the leader in making the plans for this buiKUns sitnilur to the one he had seen. iPackard, a carpenter, also helped with the construction work. This building replaced the first opera house in town which was later used as a general store ami which is now owned by Tony Viaa.s and used as a storage building. The upper floor of the new building was equipped and used by several lodges. Later the building was purchased by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. The first floor served as the center of community activities which included home talent plays and entertainments, dances, lyceum courses, stock company plays, commencement exercises, silent movies, public dinners, ond in later years basketball and roller skating. The last few years its only use was as a voting place and the past year it has served as ;i storage place for feeds and machinery. Tin- organization serving one of those early dinners found it necessary on the preceeding day to bring in by horse drawn ve- heciles all the equipment needed. This included tables, chairs, oil burning ranges, all cooking utensils, dishes and clean-up articles. The water, both hot and cold, w;;s hauled in gallon milk cons the day of the dinner. The following day was spent in returning tilings to their owners. The I.O.O.F. lodge which has been inactive for the past several years has surrendered its charter to the state organization. The sale was in charge of the I.O.O.F. lodge at Oelwein.
