He has a short walk, so that he has nearly an hour to eat, but that hour had been full of constant proddings to hurry, stern orders to stop dawdling, and fierce threats to deprive him of Mickey Mouse if he was late again. Ho and his parents were exasperated by the time the door slammed behind him as he left the 'house. During one of my mother's visits, my son drawled, "Just a minute," when I called to him to finish washing his hands and come to the table. My mother laughed and said, "He sounds exactly the way you used to. Everything was 'Just a minute,' or 'At the end of this page,' from morning till night," I asked her what she had done about it besides losing her minil. Just then my wife asked me to come to the kitchen to help her move some packages. "In a minute," I said. "I'm busy." My mother laughed again and pointed out how much my son was like me. "I guess whatever I tried didn't work very well," she said. I was embarrassed. Later I had a talk with my son about how I had been nagging at him to hurry. We came to an agreement, with my wife concurring, that we would be sure that he had time to do comfortably the things he had to do during the day. We would help him see just how much time he had, and would not constantly scold until all the allotted time had passed. Then we would try to arrive at a disciplinary settlement that seemed fair to all of us. For example, we agreed that he would have 40 minutes to eat as much lunch as he wanted, When the time was up, he would have to leave the table, even if he was still hungry. Our meals are more pleasant now. Several times he has gone back to school hungry—but not both hungry and angry! The method has not been perfect, and he still dawdles, but our looser schedule makes dawdling not quite so serious. And you're right! My wife forced me to make the same agreement with her about my own dawdling! Farmers Make Money From High-Moisture Corn High-moisture corn and unusually warm weather have proved a disastrous combination to many Corn Belt farmers this year, plummeting prices to new low levels for the season. However, there are some farmers in this Corn Belt area who are able to turn these distress conditions into profit for themselves. Unless used for feed almost immediately, much of this high- moisture corn crop is in danger of spoiling before warm spring weather. And if this high-moisture corn is not entirely used when Spring arrives, much ot it is certain to be lost through spoilage. This is true with corn stored in conventional or temporary cribs, or even in piles on the ground. One method of corn storage, however, has saved many livestock farmers in the corn area from this unusual situation. Using an oxygen-free method of sealed storage, this glass-fused-to steel unit stores corn at high PLUMBING HEATING WIRING BOTTLE GAS America's No.l Livestock State Iowa ferls justly nrond of lu-v i^ivat livvsUvk iiul»»!» . . . first in tin 1 nation. ^'o rank lirst in \aluo o!

This unit, manufactured by the A. O. Smith Corporation and known as the Harvestore, is turning potential losses into actual profits on some farms and proving that American ingenuity can again overcome the elements. The A. O. Smith Corporation says that the following examples, taken from Harvestore owners, further proves the value of their oxygen-free sealed storage principle that has been under study for several years at leading universities. C. R. Wissmillcr of Cooksville, Illinois, purchased and put corn averaging 19% to 26 % moisture into his Harvestore unit at prices averaging 90c per bushel. 'Using a Harvestore patented bottom method of unloading, with first in. firsl out procedure, Mr. Wissmiller started feeding right away in order to get more storage room for more high moisture corn that he feels may be purchased nearer Spring at prices as low as, perhaps, 40c per bushel. Using these methods, Mr. Wissmiller says he believes he can realize about a $3,000 saving on his Harvestore investment by saving on corn prices under more critical conditions than December, 1957, when he put the plan into operation. Austin Hutcher of Virden, 111., paid from 55c to 85c per bushel for good quality high-moisture corn bought from a farmer who had no way of handling his hig^- moisture corn that wouldn't dry. Moisture content of this corn ran all the way from 25% to 27%, with some as high as 40%. This corn was placed in Mr. Hutcher's two iiarvestore units, to be used as needed, with no danger of spoilage because of high moisture. Mr. Lincoln Loveless of C'ar- • linville, Illinois, purchased a ' Harvestore unit in which he is going to store only high moisture corn purchased from neighbors with no high-moisture storage facilities. He purchased corn with from 25% to 40% moisture, ranging in price from 50c to U5c per bushel. Loveless says he plans to follow this procedure all winter long, feeding out the corn and refilling when necessary. These examples of farmers actually saving money instead of losing it during this high-mois- THE EMBLEM OF DEPENDABILITY Arizona Girl and Utah Bride Win Trip To Europe in Wool-Sewing Contest Joy ladown Trout, 16 year old high school student, and Joyce Johnson, 20 year old wife and b'ink cmpto/ee, model ihcir garments which won two-week tour of the fashion copitals of Europe.

FAYETTE VARIETY HAS THE BUTTONS NEED A NOTION? VISIT THE NEWLY REMODELED NOTION DEPARTMENT AT BAKER'S Fayette Variety lure corn situation is through Jkirvestorc's oxyi-cti- llreo, sealed .storage principle. High moisture corn "bruathi's" and munufiic'luci'K carbon dioxide from the oxygen. Oxygen is soon used up, with no heating or mold — no storage loss. Harveslore manufacturers say thai experiments show Uuit hik'h-woi.'Hiiri' sealed storage in the Harvestore keeps corn in better coiiJilion for feeding than conventional storage. Delays in corn harvesting, higher market discounts because of improperly dried or high- moisture corn, spoilage in cribs and yard piles and loss of food value arc eliminated with the Harvestore, A.

Challenge To Iowa" Program Set, County Residents Can Take Part A state-wide educational program, "Challenge to Iowa" in which every citizen of Fayette County may participate, will begin in this area February 2nd, Extension Director M. C. Wangsness of Fayette has announced. "Challenge to Iowa" is not an ordinary statement — it is a real situation, when we consider the fact that Iowa, which is predominantly agriculture, is really feeling the effects of the squeeze of agricultural income tied with the problem of young people growing up on farms and having to move from Iowa to seek gainful employment. Iowa young people, in many cases, would like to be in Iowa, either on farms or in some of our towns. The "Challenge to Iowa" is a study in six Je.-;sons set up by the Iowa State College Extension Service with a view in mind that Iowa people might aUack this problem. Cooperating in presenting the study material are radio and television stations. The first television program starts over KWWL- TV February 2nd from 2:30 to 3 p.m. and continues on the 9th, 10th, 23rd, March 2nd and March 9lh. The WMT-TV program runs for six weeks starting February lith from 12:15 to 12:30 pjn. Study guides for individuals or groups will be mailed to anyone writing the County Extension Office, Fayette. These will fit with the television programs and radio programs. The Extension Office will also provide forms for folks to express their opinions which will ue summarized at the end of each week. They will be a part of a study summary at the end of the six weeks session.
