"INK in my VEINS" §Y MARIAN INMAN iieeeee"eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ' 1 am baby sitting with my little grandchildren tonight while Phil and Delores are at a meeting. They visited with me Until nine o'clock bedtime, then we came over home. Now they are tucked in their beds and the house is quiet except for the sound of my typewriter and I think of you, my readers, and wonder how things are at your house. 1 do not have this privilege often and so we made the most of story time that preceded bedtime. My day at school was very busy, I typed the script for tht ityU review, (the girls brought it to me • page et a time •• they wrote it.) I do want to see it at the description of the styles and colors and chosen accessories sounds fascinating. Their sewing creations sound like poems. How is your house cleaning coming? I know it's work but it's a nice time too. It means blankets that smell of the sun, windows that sparkle, crisp curtains, cupboards, in order, rugs spotless and 1 know you added the splash of color and displayed a lovely possession for the "cream" feeling. Spring is a time of fresh beginnings, ourselves, our homes, the greening out of doors. Mmmm such a nice clean fresh spring smell. You know so many times I feel like Alice in Wonderland did when she observed that things got curiouser and curiouser. I am all for government saving and cutting down so our taxes will not be so high but I am confused at the places they start the cutting process. Take for instance the school lunch program and the cutting of funds for extension service. Two programs where the money expended has done so much good and the funds used so wisely. The government uses the excuse that now that we have federal aid for education the funds are no longer needed. This federal aid is used for building, constructing educational television facilities, and purchasing needed equipment for schools. But, what about the research that is being conducted by the agricultural experiment stations of our land-grant institutions. We can't just shut this program on and oft and expect new helps and results for the many challenges that face us today in the food factories, our farms. Even it this could be done we could not pick up the right people to do research'work, just off and on. As I read of the poverty program I am not against the program as such, just the way we are going at it. Plums of jobs given to a few and the program really not thought thru, beems they want to spend globs of money in a hurry and not much plan where it is spent, just so we spend it. I believe that we citizens had better be aroused and offer protests to our legislators to save where it is wise but please use some common sense when they start the pruning process, pb you care enough to do something about this? When I read of the price per acre being paid for farm land and prices being asked for land near me I wonder. If it is bought to farm I can't see how it can be made. I knew many are buying for farm enlargement but at the price paid I cannot see how it will work out. Well, time will toll. I know most of us need more crop land but I can't see paying such high premium to obtain it. Of course if you have a rich uncle??? I read somewhere that foam cushion curlers can be easily rejuvenated by putting them into an old stocking, tying the two ends together, and tossing it into the automatic washer with your regular laundry. They will come out spanking clean and fluffed like new. When youngsters leave, the farm, whore do they go? Most head for New York, Florida, and California where pay is highest and job opportunities greatest, according to Economic Research Service and Oklahoma State University studies. Southwestern and North Central rural regions suffer the biggest drain of young folks. A potato will roar into space within the next two years, as scientists try to discover whether biological growth rate is controlled by forces outside or inside the living cell. Space, where gravity and other earthbound forces are eliminated, may be a good place to find out. "If standard growth rhythms occur in space," says Bruce Pine, a biologist with Space Defense Corporation, "we could be relatively sure the stimulation comes within the cell." A potato makes a good subject lor the study because its structure and life activities are extremely simple. Goodnight, my friend. I am off for bed and I expect that you are too. Tomorrow is another day. Goodnight and may God bless you everyone. aaaaaaffl^^ LET US Deliver Your Groceries CALL 5-3762 For courteous, friendly service and deliveries 'TWICE * DAILY" East End Grocery Church gives Hurt pastor farewell party •-AIOONA (Iowa) ADVANCI MONDAY, MAY 2, 1H4 — A farewell party was given Tuesday in St. John's Li* theran church for the Rev.
