Sally Bay talks at Swea City of life in Spain Swea City — Sally Bay of Algona, who spent the summer in Spain, and Ricardo Corrales of San Jose, Costa Rica, spend- ng the winter in Swea City, spoke this week at the Swea ity Parent-Teachers Association meeting. Sally told of living with a middle class family in Spain. The main difference front home was that the family ate about five times a day. Breakfast -was eaten shortly after arising about 9:30 a.m.; appetizers were served about 12:30; dinner was at 3 p.m. and consisted of many courses always ending with -dessert of fresh fruit and cheese; appeti y.ers of pastries were served about 6 p.m. and a light supper of sandwiches or soup was served at 10 p.m. Wine was served with all meals. She found little difference in the food except that a lot of garlic is used. Sally also told of the trips she took with the elder daughter of the family and she showed some of the souvenirs she brought home. Ricardo, 17, a senior, is staying with the Gifford Smith family at Swea City. He told the group that his father is employed by the Costa Rican government in the insurance business, his mother is a housewife and his only brother is a college student in Mexico. Rick was quick to praise the warm climate of his homeland, where temperatures rarely go below 75 degrees, after the cold Iowa weather he had been experiencing. He also told of the volcanos which often cause smoke and dust in Costa Rica. He said that when volcanos are active, people are forced to wear masks of paper bags with only the eyes cut out in order to breathe outdoors. Rick feels the schools here are much easier than in Costa Rica. "Here the teachers are very nice," he said. "You have a test and it is either true or false or you pick the answer from several. In my country they give three or four questions and you must fill in the blanks. "For instance," he joked, "a question might read, The , and are ." Schools in Costa Rica are mostly privately financed, and modern aids for teaching, such as movie projectors, are not used, according to Rick. There are few extra curricula activities. Dates given on applications for price supports The final dates for filing price support applications and loan maturity dates have been brought closer together to give farmers more time in which to make judgments on the disposal of their crops, Richard I. Anderson, ASCS chairman, reports. In several instances during prior years there has been a space of several months between final availability dates for loans and the loan maturity date, the Chairman said. Producers of price support commodities now will be able to secure price support coverage through loans or purchases on eligible quantities at any time between harvest and about one month before the loan maturity dates follows: (First date is filling applications and second date is maturity date.) Barley, March 31, April 30. Corn, June 30, July 31. Flax, April 30, May 31. Honey, April 30, May 31. Oats, March 31, April 30. Rye, March 31, April 30. Sorghum grain, February 28, March 31. Soybeans, June 30, July 31. Wheat, February 28, March 31. Wins award STEVE DETRICK, son of the Robert Detricks of Whittemore, has been awarded a $75 award from the Estherville Co-op Creamery. Steve will use the award in purchasing a purebred dairy heifer. Steve, a member of the Whittemore Boys and newly elected Kossuth County 4-H. boys historian, has carried a 4-H dairy project for a number of years and has been a member of the county 4-H dairy judging team for two years. We certainly congratulate Steve on this fine accomplishment. Price support loans on wheat set at '1.33 Price support loans in Kossuth County are available for farmers at $1.33, who sign up and participate in the 1966 Voluntary Wheat Program, announced Richard I. Anderson, Chairman, Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation County Committee. The signup period extends from January 31 to April 1. Anderson said the program makes the loans available for all wheat produced on partici pating farms except excess wheat produced on a farm on which the overplanting provision is used. The loans have the effect of stabilizing the market and assuring farm income. Details of the 1966 wheat program are available from the ASCS county office, and farmers should investigate the possi bilities before the end of the signup period, Anderson said.
