Women from the various county clubs will be on hand at all times to help visitors and explain their program. Clubs are: Whittemorc Club, Algona Federated, Lakota Acorn, Cresco Mother* and Daughters, Burt Club, Swea City Club, Plum Creek Mothers and Daughters, Doan Club, TLtonka Club, Union Mothers and Daughters, Titonka Federated, nad Fenton Town and Country Club. The 6x8 space allotted for their booth has been donated this year, for the first time, by the Fair Board, a practice set up by the State Fair - Board, but Kossuth is the first county Fair Board to emulate it. Work to assist the Blind of Iowa started by Club women in 1921. Then in 1927 it was decided there was need not only to help such handicapped financially but also to provide occupational therapy and so it was decided that hemming of towels could be done in the homes. As a result about .75 to 100 Mm! women work each year at the hemming of linen towels which are cut and sent to them from the office. Receni- ly lunch cloths and Terry towels and tablecloths Jiavv.- been added, also machine items made by both men and women. , In 1960 a Calender depicting Iowa was designed, printed on linen for hemming, and now two different types are available. Iowa is the only state that gives this type of service through Federated Women's Clubs who take orders for the sale of these . items as a part of their serv- ij.ice, and all proceeds are sent tito the Iowa Commission far ? the Blind. The County Clubs hope for many visitors at their Fair Booth.

Dividend for Snap-On for third quarter The Board of Directors of Snap-on Tools Corporation meeting at the home office of the Kenosha-based manufacturer of mechanics hand tool:, and automotive repair equipment declared a third quarter dividend of 35 cents per share on the company's outstanding common stock payable Sept. 9 to stockholders of record Aug. 18. The Board also heard reports on sales and net income. Consolidated net sales of Snap-on and its subsidiaries— domestic and foreign —-for the first six months of 1967 were $24,446,119, compared with $22,953,700 for the same period of 1966, an increase of. 6.5 per cent. Consolidated net income for the first six months of 1967 was $2,189,285 ($1,42 pet- share) compared with $2,161,836 ($1.40 per share) for the first six months of 1966, an increase of 1.27 per cent. For the second quarter of 1967 sales were $12,723,415 and net income was $1,038,927 (68c per share). These figures compared with sales of $11,973,962 and net income of $1 122,913 (73c per share) for tho second quarter of 1966. The management commented that the realization of a normal profit commensurate with the sales increase for the first six months of 1967 was prevented by two factors primarily: (a) increases in production costs and distribution expenses and (b) a sales mix, particularly in the second quarter, with an unusually high proportion of sales of product in lower profit margin lines.
