* Extension Service Helps People to Help Themselves Agriculture in Carroll County continues to be family farm oriented and probably will continue to be so in the future, according to Roland Lickteig, county extension director. "This lends strength and stability to the local economy," he pointed out. "It is also efficient and progressive. "Farming is a business that depends on education because of changing technology, the manner farmers market their products and the relationship of Carroll County agriculture to the rest of the community." The goal of the extension service, Licteig said, is education for all in science, the practical art of agriculture, and liberal arts— education for both making a living and living a life. The basic purpose of extension work is to help people to help themselves, Lickteig said. "Co-operative extension work, as an educational endeavor consists of giving to people useful and practical information and encouraging the application thereof, in subjects relating to agriculture, home economics, rural and community life. This information based upon research and sound farm and homemaking practices, is given to all people, agencies, organizations and groups interested — both youth and adult. It is accomplished by the use of all effective teaching methods." The philosophy of the Extension Service is to serve all segments of society in accordance with their needs and our expertise, he pointed out. Programs and activities of Cooperative Extension Service are available to all potential clientele without regard to race, color, sex or national origin.

(AP) When William Andrews retired, he felt he had to have something to do. So he took up carpentry. He put up a good many buildings and made various structures during his 10 year retirement, and recently he was asked to help the Girl Scouts on some projects. As a result the Girl Scouts have a new dock at Camp Low Echo on the shore of Lake of the Woods and two display carts for Scout literature.

"It reflects the interest of people both rural and urban and especially earth moving and tile drainage contractors who have done a tremendous job in getting projects completed." During the year, 41 new conservation farm plans were developed, 15 farm plans were updated-or revised and five group plans were prepared. The district has had a net gain of 31 cooperators or a grand total of 1,184 who have signed agreements requesting that technical assistance be provided to plan and carry out a complete conservation program for their farms. As of June 30, 1975, Soil Conservation Service and Soil Conservation District technicians have developed 911 conservation farm plans.

But many Americans continued the practice after the war was over and the 13 colonies' had won their independence, according to the National Geographic. Alexander Hamilton, the nation's first secretary of the treasury, did something about it. He prevailed on Congress to authorize 10 armed vessels to enforce payment of customs duties on goods entering American ports. President Washington then signed an order appointing Hopley Yeaton of New Hampshire "Master of a cutter in service of the U.S. for protection of revenue." That was the beginning of the present day Coast Guard.

POOCH PROMENADE NEW YORK (AP) —The passenger liner Queen Elizabeth 2 is putting on the dog. For the pooches' promenade deck near the kennels on the top deck, a genuine cast-iron Edwardian lamp post has just been installed. "If the QE 2 had been an American ship it would have been a fire plug," a Cunard official explained. 1 This man has devoted an entire lifetime to preparing great food in impeccable surroundings. He could drop into our store at any moment. That's our Colonel. He's over 80 now. And it seems the older he gets, the fussier he gets about chicken, gravy, potatoes and all the other things he's devoted a lifetime to fixin', and fixin' right. He won't have his name on, anything that isn't perfect. So he stops in sometimes. Unexpectedly. To check things for himself. And he's the strictest' inspector of them all. That's why your Kentucky Fried Chicken store goes to a lot of extra trouble making sure the food and service are absolutely perfect, n All our chickens start out in government-inspected hatcheries, ranches, and processing plants. They're sized, graded, and selected especially for Kentucky Fried Chicken. And the Colonel approves only the finest, tenderest young broilers for your eating pleasure. Q After that, our excellent birds are chilled and shipped under government seal to.a commissary, where they're inspected again by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and stamped 100% government-inspected. D But the inspections are just beginning. Refrigerated trucks deliver the broilers to your local Kentucky Fried Chicken store. There, each piece is individually dipped in egg and milk, then rolled in the special flour that contains the Colonel's own secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices, n We double-check each piece before it goes into the pressure Cooker, and we check it again before placing it in the Box, Bucket or Barrel you buy. n And all the while we're busy checking our kitchens. Our people spend as much time dismantling and sanitizing their equipment as they do cooking chicken. Q As you can see, when we sell you Kentucky Fried Chicken, we've had it checked and inspected about as much as we can. But there's more. Spot checks are made by state and local agencies for cleanliness to the nth degree. Q True, it's a lot of extra work, but the Colonel Insists on it, and every. Kentucky Fried Chicken store in the country is proud to do it. Because we want you to get the best. And come back soon. Thanks, Your Kentucky Fried Chicken Store Carroll, Iowa Hwy. 30 & Court St. 792-1677
