OF HISTORY ft ARCHIVES DES KOINES 19, IOM VOLUME 42, NO. 17 Price Five Cents FAYETTE, IOWA Price Five Cents 24 OCTOBER 1957 thru the week with the editor We had a delicious chili dinner with Myrna Moellering and her "family" last Thursday eve- nig. As the trite old saying goes, "a good time was had by all." Others present were Andy Marken, Jim Walker, Mike Denner, Joanne Mark and Marian Alton^ A state representative from Black Hawk County and his wife and kids visited in our home Sunday. They were Rep. and Mrs. B. R. Balch. In the evening our neighbor, Dr. Garbee, came over and told one of his well-known jack stories. And an enjoyable time was had by all here, too. Billy Finch is home sick with the flu. Altho someone mentioned that it was the exhaust from one of those rockets he experiements with that made him sick. Did you see him in the parade? Maybe they'll change his nick name from "Tail" to "Rocket". For good TV entertainment we recommend the 20th Century program at 5:00 Sunday afternoons. Its more of such eaucational material that we need for our own good. Of course, we have to go to our neighbors to watch it. We don't have a set. A person who's really up to date in 1957 on EVERYTHING important that's gibing on is known—in the vernacular of the present young generation—as a "cat." And there's a certain choice of words and phrases used when one "cat" is talking to another. Two such people were THE FACTS ABOUT ASIATIC FLU Q: What is Asiatic Flu? A: It is an illness caused by a virus similar to other inf!u- en/a virus (e.g. in the 1918 epidemic) but of a different strain. The symptoms and cause of all types of influenza is practically the same. It is highly contagious. Q: What arc the symptoms? A: Chills and fever (101-104), sore throat, general weakness and fatigue, severe headache, cough and aching. Q: Is it serious? A: Not usually, but complications (principally pneumonia) that develop can be very serious and even fatel. The average duration of the illness is about 4-5 days, barring complications. Q: What treatment U there? A: The treatment is primarily symptomatic. That is, aspirin, etc. for the fever and aching, cough syrup, nose drops, etc., as needed. By fur the most important treatment is plenty of rest and sleep for an adequate period, i. e., 24-48 hours after all symptoms have cleared to prevent relapses. Large amounts of fruit juices and fluids are advisable. If severe complications arise, antibiatics may be of help. Occasionally hospitalization may be necessary. Q: How can influenza be prevented? A: First of all, avoid as much contact with other people as possible, particularly crowds or persons known to be ill. Second: keep up your resistance with plently of sleep and rest and a good diet. Third: if contact is difficult to avoid, your general health is poor, or if your work is y,o Big Question O.E.S.

Thought I'd get out squirrel hunt- A ". ing last Saturday, but there is just too much to do. QS We think it was a spendid idea for the Chamber of Commerce to A . purchase the sophomore float for use in the UIU parade Saturday So much time is spent on those things one really hates to see them used so little. • » * » • The F.H.S. Band really sounded nice in their Friday parade. The majorettes looked sharp and a lot of time .and planning was put Q , into floats which, we suppose, generally centered around "Sput- A nik." * * • * The only good thing about Sputnik is that it put Faubus on the backpages where he probably f belongs. • * * • I was on my way over to Arlington last Friday evening just after dark and prior to the Homecoming game when I passed -a car parked on 154 and some girls and a man standing by it. Thinking they might have car trouble, I backed up to where they were and asked if I could help. Their reply: "No, we were just watching for the rocket." Well, its good to check anyway. 'of thostf who have received shots and may minimize it in some of the rest. Who can take the shots? Any man, woman, or child who is not sensitive to eggs can take the shots if available. What are reactions to the shots? About half will experience some soreness in their arm for 12 to 24 hours. Less than 10% will have a general reaction consisting of mild flu-like symptoms, e.g., low-grade fever (10O-101) mild headache or generalized aching, lasting about 12 hours and seldom for as long as 24 hours. How long does the protection of immunization last? So far as is known, about 4 to 6 months, probably as long as the present epidemic will last.

Urea or ammonium nitrogen applied after the soil temperature is down to 50 degrees will remain in the ammonium form and resist leaching. This point makes fertilisers containing high percentages of urea and ammonium the best bet for fall use. Examples of nitrogen sources containing 50 percent or more of these forms are anhydrous ammonia, urea, aqua ammonia, nitrogen solutions, ammonium nitrate and ammonium sulfate. Anhydrous ammonia, aqua ammonia and 3V and 41 percent nitrogen solutions must be injected into the soil to prevent nitrogen from escaping into the air as free ammonia. Plowing should be delayed lor at least 3 days after application. Ammonium nitrute, urea, ammonium sulfate and 32 percent nitrogen solutions can be applied on the soil surface without fear of loss into the air, the extension director says.
