' —-mJ ABUSHEP - 186 -— don smith PICKED up the daily paper last Wednesday, May 24-and scanned just the headlines to quickly discover how bad off the world is. Here are the heads we found(and I'm sure they won't serve to perk you up much, either): -?- "U. S. WARNS OF MIDEAST WAR" (just as well get another one going over there before things cool off too much): "Booby Trap Kills Fayette Soldier" (20 year old Army private who entered the army in October and went to Vietnam last month); "Warn 'Total Victor/ in Viet Means War With Red China" (and brother if we ever get all those communist Chinese mad at us, you'd better build a bomb shelter, not a house). who lives near Call State Park here He sent a clipping from the magazine "Farmland" telling that 450 cooperatives had reserved more than 2,000 hotel rooms for Farmland Industries' annual meeting. Many of the reservations were for a popular downtown hotel at Kansas City and no less than 53 variations of the spelling of the place have cropped up. We looked at the list so long, we forgot how to spell it, too. The guesses ran from Mule Back, Mulbuck, Mulblock and Mulen BacktoMul- baceh. Do you know how to spell it? •— • May 24 In the Howard Funnemark home in honor of William s graduation from Corwith-Wesley High School included the Lloyd Bohannons, Algona; John Hikes, Titonka; Lester and Arvin Larsons, Mrs. Fred Bentele and Lois; Ethel and Anna Flom; Mrs. Margaret Blelch; Ivan Johnsons, Joe Goetz's, Lester Blaines, Geo. Seabergs, Tony Pearsons, Geo. Lickteigs and Stan Simpsons. Bill will enter Iowa State University, Ames, in September. - o - "DENIES Cash From Hoffa" (just a little more dirt dug up about the head of the Teamsters); "Living Costs in Sharp April Rise; Food Prices Climbing" ('nuf said); "Senate OKs Arms Buying" ($21.16 billion to be spent while we "protect" other people in the far reaches on earth): "Warns On Cuts in Road Budget" (don't ever cut a road budget - they might not get to put in eight miles of blacktop somewhere where it isn't needed, anyway). - 7- LOOKS like Senators and Representatives in the nation's capital have figured out a way to "moonlight" and stretch their too much $30,000 per year, which most say won't make ends meet. One of the Iowa contingent, Sen. Jack Miller, 50, Sioux City, a tax lawyer and teacher by profession, has an answer to the fund shortage. He was recently promoted to brigadier general in the Air Force Reserve after approval by the Armed Services Committee. Sen. Margaret Chase Smith (a Republican like Miller) from Maine was responsible for holding up 25 such promotions, including Miller's, due to policy of Defense Secy. Robert McNamara, who said Reserve promotions should be barred for government officials and employees who would be needed in their civilian posts in a war or emergency. We have often wondered just exactly how some of those older reservists would fit into things if such an emergency required their recall to active duty. The officer Reservist's aim undoubtedly is for a nice monthly check after retirement. STATISTICS do prove women live longer than men - but you can't prove it by their age! "CEASE-Fire Ends With 12 G I.s Killed in 71 Incidents" (with those cease-fires, who needs war); "Order Study Of Iowa Litterbugs" (wonder where you sign up); "Panty Raid at Westmar" (now that's more like itV "Tie Drug Firm 'Sweepings _ . To' Low Coungerfeit Price" (that D« D aVAIlf C last medicine didn't taste quite |jy fQI^IIIJ right, at that). Wesley Grads Are Honored "THE Facts Behind Mideast Crisis" (they didn't say it but without a doubt it's U. S. investments); "Guard Officers Get Refresher" (wonder who tended bar); "Garrison Says Guerrilla Fighters Killed Kennedy" (that district attorney still has a long way to go as far as we're concerned); "Fix Broken Dentures" (woops, that's an ad, not a news story). - ? - NOW, aren't you a lot happier you're alive 1 - ? - IF all the world loves a lover, how come so many get shot? GOT a very nice card from Mrs. Jack Gerhart, Fenton, commenting on our use of information from the Almanac. Says she would appreciate more information during the summer, and asked that we start in April next year with our hints to gardeners. She asked a question about which plant pests could be killed May 28-29 - and we can t answer it. There's nothing in the Almanac about it, so we re stumped. I do think, though, tha. Curt Lura at the Fe..ton Elevator could fix you up with something that would do away with those red spiders and bugs asked about, Mrs. Gerhart. MEANWHILE, here we go with hardly any more info from Mitch Taylor's Almanac. The page on planting and gardening for 1967 has got dates when things should go best every month of theyear- and we all know that there's very little planting around here, except during the spring. However, if any of you good readers would like info on when to plant during June, drop us a card and we'll see you get the days when your "crop" stands the best chance. 1st Cannibal: "You don't look so good. What's wrong r' 2nd Cannibal: "Nothing much. If s just that I get fed up with people sometimes." . i - MORE mail.
