And the 1940-50 decade, it is estimated, will net (over deaths) 13 million brand new individuals to reckon with. And reckon with them your telephone company . will. As they become a part of the adult population, we arc concerned with such questions as—How many of them ultimately will live in Metropolis? How many in Suburbia? Will they be fanners, work in factories or offices, start businesses of their own? We calculate these things as best we can and try to have telephone facilities ready when and wjicrc . needed. To resume normal expansion, halted by .the war, and to plan soundly for future needs, call for an expenditure of 100 million dollars during the next few years in the five states we serve. This money must come, not from "war profits" — because the telephone company made none—but from individual investors with faith in the future earnings and stability of the business.

"IOWA'S EVALUATION" V December 28, 1946, marks the one hundredth anniversary of Iowa's statehood. For one hundred years she has been more than a credit to our country in a cultural and an economic way. Iowa was named for a tribe of Indians who lived between the Mississippi and the Missouri rivers. The name was originaly given to the Iowa River; later, to the Black Hawk territory; and then, to the state. Indians of many tribes roamed the gently roUing prairies of all parts of Iowa. French trappers bartered for precious pelts with brightly colored materials, glass beads, whiskey, and guns. Many of the Indians were driven westward when the government bought the territory. The first white men to see Iowa, Marquette and Joliet, paddled down the Wisconsin river into the Mississippi. A little settlement sprang up at Prairie du Chicn, where they stopped in 1673 before coming to Iowa soil. Although this country did not belong to the United States until 1803 when it was purchased from France as a part of the Louisiana territory, some settlements were made in Iowa before that time. Fort Madison—1804 With the white men came the forts to protect them from savage Indians. The first fort, Fort Madison, was built in 1804, a short distance -above the Des Moines rapids. The fort was said to be made with the permission of the Iowa tribe, but it was greatly opposed by Black Hawk, an Indian chief of the Sac tribe. When the war .of 1812 broke out, troops, wer ordered to withdraw, but were not actually removed for nearly a year. The fort was burned by the soldiers when they left, and all that remained was a chimney . For many years this spot was called "The Lone Crim- nny." Although Julien Dubuque founded the city which is now named after him, he first crime to Prairie du Chien to make terms with the Indians that would secure lead mines for him. Fort Armstrong, an establishment on the south point of Rock Island, antagonized the already short temper of Black Hawk. It was a summer resort for his Indians which supplied them with fresh strawberries, blackberries, plums, apples, nuts, and various other things. The water around Rock Island was especially good for fishing. Although the location of Fort Armstrong was not the direct cause of the Black Hawk war, it led up to it. The fort on Rock Island was a very' remarkable position. It was surrounded by hills and could easily be taken if the English posted their guns in the heights. The fort itself was in such a dilapidated state that the Indians could have attacked in the dark and recaptured the land in 15 minutes. The Indian s could muster up 4000 warriors in ten days against the 400 soldiers of the fort whenever they wanted to. Black Hawk would have had a more successful campaign in the war if he had centralized his attacks on Rock Island. Became Territory in 1838 In 1838, Iowa was organized as a separate territory, including all land between the Missouri and the Missisippi and from Missouri to Canada. Thousands of settlers, crossed the Mississippi to take up" homesteads when the news of the bountiful new land reached the East. In 1839 a dispute arose over the southern boundary of Iowa. Some Missouri settlers entered the contested areas and cut down trees containing honey. This aroused the lowans and the militia was ordered out from both Missouri and Iowa. The BROODER HOUSE INSURANCE On BUILDING, CHICKS AND STOVE L.S.60HANNON OverS. &L. Deloris Kinsey Supreme Court settled the matter before any actual fighting by leaving the boundary as it was surveyed in 1816. The Indians were gradually pushed westward and by the end of the Black Hawk war, the Sauk and Fox Indians signed a treaty giving eastern Iowa to the federal government. In 1838 they ceded more land to -the -white man, and in 1842 they relinquished their last claim to any Iowa soil. The Winnebago and Potta- wattami tribes in 1846 and the Sioux in 1851 gave up all Iowa and there were no more'Indian claims in this country....... In 1840 the question of statehood arose since the population had increased so greatly. Although the proposal was defeated that year and two years later, it was adopted in 1844 and Iowa's constitution was framed; but the boundaries described by Congress were rejected. In 1846 the present boundaries were agreed upon. Iowa was the thirtieth state to be admitted into the Union. Towns, such as Fort Madison, Burlington, and Dubuque, thrived when settlers flooded the lands formerly occupied by the Indians. Moved Stale Capital The year 1857 was a memorable year in Iowa's history. Her constitution was revised and the capital was removed from Iowa City to its present site, Des Moines. In the same year a band of Sioux Indians were responsible for the massacre of the white settlers at Spirit Lake in the northwestern part of Iowa, but this did not discourage settlers. The close co-operation now existing-between farmers is a result of the Granger movement in the r.Ue 1800's At the time laws n-ere passed regulating railroads and establishing- " laiaMul c-nmiis- sion. '-'' During the first World War about 113,000 men in service were from Iowa. The growth of farmer co-operatives in northwestern Iowa was stimulated by the economic conditions after the war. During World War II and at the present time, she is the "breadbasket of the world.'" Now both agricultural and industrial .production is expanded to meet the quota required. In recent jyears she has produced more eggs than any other state in the Union. She ranks high in butter, corn, oats, and fruit. Among the manufactured products are washing machines, farm implements, fountain pens, cosmetics, buttons, and prior to V. J. Day she made guns and munitions for the war. Though she has shown her worth in the soil and industry, Iowa has not been delinquent in the education of her children. There are adequate facilities for children to attend elementary schools, high schools, colleges and universities. The past one hundred and fifty years, especially the last one hundred years, have, seen vast JANICE ME1NE OF LOTrSCREEtHURT IMlLATrlAY Lotts Creek: Jahlcd,''ilaughte^ of Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Melh(«, had the misfortune ttt. fall off the new mcry-go-rourid which was installed recently at the school grounds, and broke her arm.
