It was the first shutout for the Indians since their season opener at Renwich. Hard-running Tim Kollasch brought the opening kickoff back to the Swea City 45 to give the host team good field position on their first series. They moved to the Tyke 25 before the drive was stopped on downs.

You know, it had bee n so long since I have held a child that size that I was actually a little apprehensive about taking him the first time. I guess I inad forgotten just how small a three-day old baby is. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever believe that the trip I took last weekend would be possible. But, what an exciting experience it was! The flight •both ways was almost unbe- lievalble and indescribably beautiful. I did have a slight scare as we were about to leave Phoenix, though.

Following his high school graduation, Darrel attended Midland Linotype School in Charles City and worked as a linotype operator for about 12 years. He has also served as manager of an Algona service station for four years.

In the second half, Smidt scored on a sweep around left end, and Ricklefs scored the conversion for the 30-0 victory. The defense did an outstanding job in preventing the visitors from scoring throughout the game. The team members wish to express their appreciation to the mothers for the nice gesture in entertaining them after the game with supper and a delicious cake. bras k a accepts immediate delivery, j stop the burning, then he's taking a "no return" j chance, warns Everson. ! At $9.00 per bushel, the', farmer may end up losing —j $9.00 per bushel. ] Once seed is treated, it cannot be sold for processing into oil and meal, comments Everson. So it must be either planted or destroyed. The danger is that germination may rapidly drop while being stored on the farm. Such dangers are real and depend on the conditions of storage. And, few farmers have proper stor ru n with two minutes remain- I ing in the period. There were no turnovers in the game, but Titonka got one bad break to set up the final tally for the Trojans.

Activities At The Titonka Care Center Monday morning, October 14 we worked on our individual projects. We're trying to finish some of the items we's started for our Christmas Bazaar to be in late November. Monday afternoon bingo winners were Bud, Sylvia, Maude Cora, Amy, Myra and Stella Maude and Stella tied for the lead with three wins each! Tuesday was Emma Martin ek's birthday. She was busy with visitors most of the day. We enjoyed sharing her cake with our dinner. She had ordered cakes from Sharon Uken who did a lovely job of decorating.

However, we were told an indicator light had come on showing a loss of oil pressure to one engine and that It was probably a malfunction of the indicator. We went back to the terminal, and after about 20 minutes were o n our way. Now, on a more serious note. For the past few weeks we have run numerous articles in regard to the .taxation of the housing development in Titonka. I don't subscribe to all of the statements mlade in these let- letters, but I will defend the author's right to state them, and will continue to give him or anyone else the opportunity to use this paper to state their views. There are times when articles may be squeezed out because of lack of space (this is a decision I have to make almost weekly), but they will appear as soon as possible.

Susan Budlong and Lynette Reynolds served treats. —Kira Wilbeck, secretary age, continues Everson. Seed stored in barns or sheds often Decomes damp. Contact with cement floors isn't good either. A better alternative would be to request delivery just before planting time next spring. Responsible seed companies should be willing to comply. A seed company's storage facilities will ordinarily maintain seed viability much better than most farmers, explains the seed expert.

Hope to be back to a normal paper next week. The weather here has been fantastic for harvesting the crops, but we are going to need some rain before too long. We left Sioux Falls with the temperature in the low 50s, and when we arrived in Phoenix about noon on Thursday, the change was almost unbelievable. The temperature was about 90 degrees and got. up to the mid 90s before the afternoon was over. My trip last weekend was my first daylight flight on a commercial plane, and was quite a thrill. After leaving the plains of South Dakota we crossed the sand hills of northern Nebraska and then landed in Denver. On leaving there we cut across the Rockies and it was the first time I had ever seen them from the air. We were flying at about 31,000 feat and what a spectacular sight it was as we flew by Pike's Peak on a cloudless day. The mountains of Arizona are not as spectacular as those in Colorado, but they present quite a pattern from the air. That's it for another week.' Remember to think positive. It .doesn't cost any more, and it makes life so much brighter. Doan UMW Attend Wesley Guest Day The Doan United Methodist Women met at the Church Annex Thursday afternoon, October 17 with Mrs. Ted Hoover, Sr. as hostess. Mrs. Dwight Seaberg presented the lesson, "Agricultural Issues", and. Mrs. Tom Ellefson gave devotions. President Mrs. Ray Cunningham opened the business meeting by reading a poem, "What October Is". Plans were completed for a UNICEF Party to be held Thursday, October 31 for the community children. Mrs. Gerald Bahling will be in charge of .the event. The women were reminded of the Bake Sale to be held ed on chenille wreaths, Christmas trees and snowmen. We played "Name that Tune" at music time on Wednesday. Although we did well, we had to admit that Maude and Bud knew the most tunes. Rev. Janssen joined us in the afternoon. He brought us a most interesting and comforting message. Table bowling was first on our agenda on Thursday. Everyone is improving with Bud, Bertha S. and Maggie having 1;wo or more strikes. In the afternoon many of us put the finishing touches on our Christmas projects. Friday morning's movie was "Highways to Splendor", a scenic view of Vancouver. Afternoon bingo winners were Hattie, Maggie, Emma Stenzel, Genie, Bud, Dale, Marie D. and Myra. Sunday evening church services were conducted by Rev. Mqrk. We need pine cones for our crafts. Anyone having some of any size, please contact the Care Center. We will see that germination date on the label to be within nine months of the sale date. Farmers planning to save and plant their own carryover seed next spring should note that a germination test is not suffic. ient. Carryover soybean seed may have a high germination test in the laboratory but poor emergence in the field. A stress test should be conducted before making the final decision to plant carryover seed. These tests should be made as'near planting time as possible since carryover soybean seed may deteriorate appreciably between fall and spring. Farmers who ordinarily plant their own seed, but now question the quality of their 1974 seed and are considering planting their own carryover seed may want to proceed as fol lows: 1. Have seed from this year's production tested for germination as soon as possible. 2. If the seed from this year is low in germination, you may wish to consider your carryover so adding another $34,000 would give a total of approximately $164,000. As I have copies of mortgages from F.H.A. totaling $190,000, this for the year. Once again it was the running of Gary Goetz .that furnished most of the offense for the Indians as he picked up 98 yards in 15 attempts. Phil Ubben, hobbled by an injured foot, was used only on defense. The Indians turned to an. aerial attack late in the game, )ut came up with only three completions in 15 attempts, with Jeff Loeschen catching ,he long gainer for 21 yards. Eugene Zwiefel gathered i n an 18 yard gainer, and Brent Rippentrop caught one for 11 yards. Game Statistics T 1st downs 9 seed for planting, but Have a stress test run on the carryover seed between February and April. leaves a difference of approximately $26,000 between the mortgages and valuation of property in Assessor's office. In making inquiries at the F.H.A. Office, I was informed ,tihey usually require an investment of approximately .02% plus the real estate to build on, which would make a total of $200,000 valuation at least Also found out the T.D.C had just made a payment of $600 of recent date to the city All other taxpayers were re quired to have first half 01 taxes paid by May 31st and second half by Sept. 30th. Also had a discussion with a memlber of the Tax Board o: Review and he stated he had opposed the granting of tax exemption, but was over-ruled by the other four members. Maybe an investigation o he Board's actions in these cases 'by a group of interested .axpayers might be in order.

The Indians will be trying to come up with a winning season in the conference, while Armstrong will try to even itheir conference record at 3-3. Titonka has already topped their 1973 record whe n they won three games and lost five. Another victory will give the Indians a 5-3 record for the season. 427.1 - Exemptions: Subsection No. 9: Property of religious, literary and charitable societies.
