PAGE EIGHT. SWEA CITY LADY'S POEM WINS FAME Svvca City: A poem written by Mrs. Ida Larson, Swea City .postmaster, is gaining statewide recognition and is now being used in ceremonies where Iowa's state flag is presented or dedicated to groups, schools or at civic ceremonies. Mrs. Larson wrote the poem the night before she was to give a talk at a meeting of district postmasters. It has since gained wide attention. The poem follows: Iowa's Stale Flag Iowa's white, on its field of red, white and blue, A banner proudly waving o'er fields of golden grain Glistening in the morning dew. Waving over countless acres of Icwa's fields of corn, Like a spirit hovering o'er us on an early summer morn. Cattle grazing in rich pastures, iiogs and sheep are feeding too. Smoko stacks pouring forth their black cloudf, Iowa's industries ever building something new. Iowa's flag, this banner waving, giving courage to our sons As they marched to far flung battles to the rumble of big guns. Iowa's flag, may it ever mean to you Just what it says in its field of reel, white and blue; "Our liberties we prize, and our right we will maintain," Its a banner that is worthy of Iowa's untarnished name.

Joe Marsh .Why Bert Won First Prize Folks weren't surprised when Bert Childers won first prize for his corn at the county fair. Yet the judges admit it wwn't just because Bert had the finest ears of corn. He knew How to dit- play them: neatly arranged, with the husks cleanly trimmed, and tbf booth white and spotless.
