The few minutes away from the eight-hour grind (that's for the fortunate factory workers who can get by with it) are usually enough to recreate the perspective and genuine willingness to do your job and do it better. The greatest joy is the joy of achievement, and everyone is a sharer in this joy, altho it's always in retrospect. Thus, anything that enables one to do his or her job, and do it better' as a result of a moment for refreshment, is certainly worthwhile. In fact, it is downright silly of an individual to disregard such an important phase of the day as a break from routine. Now, coffee, altho a stimulant- provides much less for the human body than the minutes away from your work. In other words—just change the atmosphere for a moment or two; look at something different; say a short prayer; rest; relax; think about something away from what you've been doing the previous hours and YOU'LL RETURN TO YOUR WORK MORE WHAT YOU'RE DOING' ATTITUDE AND FEELING St. Francis Church Father John Roskopf Sunday Masses: 7:30 & 10:30 a.

Don't be modest about it because we want to know what you're doing and so do your friends. Let us hear from you a lot in 1958! HAPPY NEW YEAR I In the matter of "total destruction", we like to now and then recall the humorous story of a certain artillery practice session, back in World War II days. An all-out barrage was laid down on a small spot of woods. Immediately after "cease fire", a high ranking officer stepped forward, and spoke dramatically to the artillerymen, as to the fire-power they had just hurled into this spot of woods. "No living thing could possibly survive such a barrage". Then he suddenly paused, and turned a deep crimson red. A pretty little Whitetail doe and her fawn trotted out of the smoking target acreage, and gambolled gracefully off to an adjacent wooded area. • • • • • Very best Holiday Season greetings to all "Creek-bottom" column readers, friends and critics alike. We promise to try even harder in 1958, to hew where we THINK the "line" to be, and "let the chips fall where they may". IK SERVICE Fort Jay, N.Y. (AHTNC) — Army Pvt. Donald D. Van Sickle, son of Mr. and Mrs. Donald Van Sickle, Route 1, Fayette, Iowa, recently was assigned to the Military Police Detachment at Fort Jay, N.Y. Van Sickle, a clerk, entered the Army in July 1957 and completed basic training at Fort Carson, Colo. The 19-year-old soldier is a 1956 graduate of Fayette Consolidated High School.

Rats annually destroy as much food in the United States as one out of every 25 farms produce. Contamination of grain by rodent droppings, hairs and urine has cost the farmer thousands of dollars . through down-grading from grain suitable for human food to that usable only u animal feed. Mouse contamination of grain is increasingly becoming important in many areas where rat populations have been drastically reduced and the mouse population is growing. Such are the alarming, but true statistics furnished by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and compiled in a brochure published by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation of Madison, Wisconsin. It is obvious in the face of facts available that some constructive ., action must be taken to fight an enemy that last year alone destroyed the production of more than 100,000 farms—enough to feed 1 person out of every 15! Clean grain means money in the farmer's pocket. Today the farmer is not as helpless in the face of rat menace as he was ten years ago. In addition to the traditional defensive measures, he can now actively fight this menace with the proven, easy-to-use. rat and mouse killer, warfarin. Discovered in the labo­ ratories of Professor Karl Paul Link of the University of Wisconsin, warfarin was patented by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation. Warfarin kills rodents by thinning their blood until they die of internal hemorrhage, over a period of 6 to 14 days. It is not a "quick kill" poison and there is no bait shyness. The rodents simply eat warfarin containing baits until they die. Warfarin is comparatively safe when there are children about, because it is slow acting and usually mixed with unappetising cereal baits to be fed to-the rati and mice. The entire community, working together, can win the war against rodents, a campaign that is bound to add up to a cleaner neighborhood, a safer community and the prevention of waste. A few basic steps to remember in personally fighting this enemy are to keep garbage and refuse containers tightly covered, rat- proof buildings by dosing all holes in exterior walls, and make use of any of the rodenticides containing warfarin, available under various trade names in stores throughout the country.

Besides the late shoppers all scampering 'round, Remnants of gay office parties were found A-dancing and prancing, quite fresh from a spree, And more than a few in their cups, you could see. All this boded ill for the motorist mild Who encountered these manacing, recklessly wild Creatures on wheels who, drunk with strange power, Were blinded and deaf to that night and that hour. I flinched and I swerved, and it did seem as though Momentarily I might end up in the snow. Though traffic lights beckoned and warning signs flickered, Most efforts were wasted on cele- 'brants likkered. And so, inch by inch, I edged out of the crowd, Away from the noises, so raucous and loud. And shattered and shaken and shrunk like a gnome, I emerged at long last on the quiet road home.

President Eisenhower stated, "Four battalions of Corporal Missiles alone are equivalent in firepower to all of the artillery used in World War II on all fronts.' Despite the great importance of missiles, we still have great striking power in our air superiority over Russia. We have a much better defense against airplane attack. "One B-52 bomber can carry as much destructive capacity as was delivered by all of the bombers in all the years of World War II combined," the President said. . But the B-52 will soon be succeeded by the B-5B, a supersonic bomber. Russia, at present, has no adequate defense against our fast bombers. We, on the other hand, nave buUt three great rings of defense to the north of us, the route Russian planes would have to travel over the North Pole to reach U. S. cities. Our military strategists concede that some enemy bombers very probably would gel through our defense.

Q: Hon- serious a threat to live- si! • .iiv.xV A: It depends on the locality. AlLhou:;h anthrax has occurred in r!r.io:t every state, there are only a cei',:.:u number of regions where it is a constant li":;artl. Q: Is tho clls- euse very deadly? A: Yes. It Is the most dangerous of all known animal diseases; and It kills human beings, too. Q: What are the symptoms of anthrax? A: Owners may not see any ".symptoms". Often an animal Is s'.if'tbnly found dead, for no known .•.-.line. Then, un'ess prompt steps are taken, anthrax may easily tpread all over the locality. Q: V> !:rt causes anthrax? A: A tiny spore, which lives in I'.ic soU. The rpore form of this ;:.:v.:i en survive for years, and still kill. (J: What can one do to prevent anthrax? A: In "anthrax areas" livestock can be protected by vaccination. However, vaccination Ehould NOT be done except in these areas, or where an outbreak occurs. And In any circumstances, the vaccinating should be done by a veterinarian. Because the anthrax spore is very deadly, and careless or improper handling may actually cause an outbreak. Q: If an animal dies of nnthrax, what should be done? A: Move a 11 stock off the pasture where the animal has grazed. Call e veterinarian 1m- m e d 1 a t e ly to make sure of cause of death. Then follow his guidance on method of handling the rest of the herd, and on disposal of carcass, as the dead animal is a threat to oil other stock In the neighborhood. NOTE—Due to space limitations, general questions cannot be handled by this column. eign outlet found. Farmers have been heavy slor- ers of beans this fall and the about loan costs. The movement into loan should be large enough to force the price of beans up to loan level. Don't expect a bulge in bean prices this year unless something like the Suez crisis or Mediterranean freeze occurs, Kutish emphasized. Early indications are that the oil market won't be as FtronR ns last year. The supply of soybean monl is larger than last year. But there's Ifcs cotfonscorl meal. Offsetting this to wmn extent is the lnr.ee supply of cheap feed grains. There will be more chicks raised nc'Xt year and move hogs, but fewer laying hens and probably less feeding of protein feed to cattle (because of improved forage conditions and elimination of the drouth feed program). The whole soybean situation reflects the fact that this vear's crop was a record-smasher. Supplies are large enough to tie the price close to the loan — which means the price can't go up or clown very much, barring war or other unforscen foreign developments.
