Detasseling Recruitment Under Way in Area, Job Service Reports At a time when summer jobs are scarce, there is one industry which still offers unlimited job openings in Iowa durine the summer months: the seed corn industry. Max Goodvin, manager of Jobs Service of Iowa in Carroll, said Wednesday the nature of the seed corn business calls for the employment of thousands of youth throughout Iowa to handpick the tassels from the seed corn acreage which is planted each year throughout the state. Why talk about summer jobs during the middle of winter?, he asked. The various seed corn companies in the Carroll area are already planning their 1976 season, he said. One of the variables they need to know is the size of the labor force they can depend on for detasseling the corn. This is where the Job Service of Iowa figures in. Its representatives are already at work planning recruitment efforts for this season. "We .will be contacting schools in our area to discuss detasseling. to answer questions, and to decide on the most effective means of recruiting youth from each school," Goodvin said. The Job Service of Iowa recruits workers for all seed corn companies in this area, and is obligated by law to provide equal service to all companies. Close contact is maintained with all the companies, and "we are aware of each one's needs throughout the detasseling season." For many youngsters. Goodvin remarked, detasseling is their introduction to the world of work. "It is a good opportunity to earn money and contribute to the family income, but it also teaches the young man or woman several things — the responsibility for seeing a job through to its end, the satisfaction of seeing the results of a hard day's work, and the value of a dollar. We urge parents to have their children sign up for detasseling. It will help them become better job seekers and employes in the years to come." Anyone can detassel who will be 14 or older by July 1 of this year, provided he is in good physical health. The work usually lasts from two to three weeks, seven days a Timet Herald, Carroll, la. Wednesday, March 3, 1976 week, starting in the middle of July. It can be hot and dirty work, Goodvin said, and it must be completed on schedule, rain or shine.

Oswald, City Clerk. * March 3,1976 By Gaynor Maddox (NEA Writer) "Take the salt shaker off the dinner table." In the strenuous battle against heart disease, that's the first and probably the most urgent advice of Dr.. Jean Mayer, professor of nutrition at Harvard. Dr. Mayer is firm in his diagnosis of the ills of mankind. His observations on the causes of man's great scourge, heart disease, rate careful attention. He states. "Hypertension — high blood pressure—is one of the pre-disposing causes of heart disease. It makes blood vessels of the heart, kidneys, brain and eyes much more susceptible to atherosclerosis, or "hardening" of the blood vessels due to accumulation of calcium and cholesterol in their walls. "Loss of mental capacity, and senility, because of poor transfer of oxygen, glucose and other nutrients to the brain are all too frequent effects of atherosclerosis. Dr. Mayer continues, "Worse still, high blood pressure is the overwhelmingly dominant risk factor in the development of strokes. Prevention of high blood pressure — which affects upward of 10 million Americans — thus emerges as one of the most important aspects of health maintenance. A universal prescription for hypertension is cutting down on the salt intake, which may mean marked or even drastic reduction. Since the main goal of drug treatment of hypertension is to eliminate, as much sodium as possible from the body, cutting down salt in the diet obviously helps control hypertension." Dr. Mayer is author of "A Diet for Living," a very sane and practical guide for living well to a ripe age, and he.says, "Mothers used to high salt diets tend to raise their children to use far more salt than is needed." He warns against many of the packaged convenience foods which are high in salt (sodium) content. Canned soups are often over-salted and many restaurants over-salt the foods they prepare. He stresses that he does not advocate eliminating all salt from the diet of those with hypertension or other forms of heart trouble but that more persons cut down drastically. He says, "I would not suggest the banishment of salt. No, not unless your doctor ordered it. My message is this — a little less salt every day will not change the taste of your food too much. Particularly when you realize the effect it will have on your heart's well-being." Dr. Mayer also explains the difference between arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis. "Arteriosclerosis is a general term, including almost any arterial disease which leads to thickening and hardening of the arteries. "Atherosclerosis is a specific form of arteriosclerosis. Fat accumulates on the inside walls of certain arteries of the body. The progressive development of atherosclerosis is the main cause of coronary heart disease, stroke and gangrene of the extremities.'' which one can detassel." If you are on a crew, Goodvin said, a typical day might go like this: Rise, eat a good breakfast, pack a bag lunch, and be at the pick up area in time to board the bus, which will take you to the fields. Companies usually try to get into the fields by 7 a.m., and it is usually no more than a 10 or 15 mile trip. Your foreman will be on the bus or will meet you at the field. He will have met with his area supervisor and knows which rows must be detasseled that day. You may walk the rows or ride on a machine designed for this purpose. You should have brought along with you suitable clothing to protect you from the morning dew which is still on the corn, and good boots or shoes to protect your feet. By 10 a.m. you will probably shed some of this clothing because of the rising temperature. At 10:30or 11:00 you will break for lunch and you are usually finished for the day by 2:00 or 3:00 p.m. — in time for a swim or an afternoon nap. Throughout the day supervision is present, and no horseplay is allowed. Your needs will be well looked after. Drinking water is available at all times, rest periods are allowed as needed, and your supervisors are instructed to be alert to the health and safety of each detasseler. You'll be in fine physical condition by the time your job is finished! "Many people in our area prefer to contract detassel," Goodvin said, "although the job and the methods utilized are the same. The contractor gets paid so much per acre and may adjust his hours of work to suit his individual situation. The individual contractor should have some detasseling experience and be physically able to do the job required. Younger contractors should have arrangements made with someone (brother, sister, mom, dad, etc.) who can help them if they get into a jam. "Some people prefer to form groups and secure a detasseling machine from the company. No persons in the group may be less than 14 years of age and the group must have one or two individuals with a valid state driver's license who will take responsibility for this group." Another thing that a detasseler can do now, if he or she hasn't already done so, is apply for a Social Security Number. Each employer has to have this number before he can process your payroll check and pay for the work done, and it takes up to a month to obtain one after applying. The local Social Security Office or Post Office can help you out on this. Tike .^, ,_stodcl Join the Payroll Saving!
