Every huw is Dairy Month Every June, as regular as taxes, the nation pays a month-long salute to thousands of dairy farmers and the entire dairy industry. And the star of the show, often called the "foster mother of the human race," is the milk cow. For the past 31 years, housewives and children, producers and processors, bankers and bakers, congressmen and communities, athletes and agronomists, and millions of other Interested Americans pay homage to the cow. They cite chapter and verse of the importance of dairy foods in the nation's diet. Throughout the land, banks, hotels, restaurants and other local businesses give free milk, ice cream, rheose and other dairy products during the month. Dairy Days are held to elect a local princess, and milking contests are held at home plate as the main feature of Dairy Nights at the Old Ball Park. In this era of convenience foods, we sometimes forget that dairy products are nature's own convenience foods. Veterans of World War II and Korea wanted fresh fluid milk the minute it was available to them. And, in Vietnam the U.S. 1st Air Cavalry recently suggested to their general that they be allowed to set up a dairy of their own. The importance of milk as a basic food was dramatically pointed up during last winter's snow storms in Chicago when citizens boueht milk to survive Milk and bread were out of stock and headline news while other convenience products were in ample supply. In his 1966 telegram to the 45th annual 4-H Congress, President Johnson said: "Each year America moves closer and closer toward the national goal of placing the abundance of our physical and material resources within reach of every citizen." June is a time of abundance in the dairy industry. Mark it well in your memory and let's all support this vital part of our economic society by enjoying dairy products every day, all year long.

DAIRY FOODS are fresh, fast, fun... american dairy association of iou>a and iowadainj industry commission Enjoy a Circus of Summer Eating with Dairy Foods It's amazing how words change in meaning as time goes on The theme for the 31st annual celebration of June Dairy Month is "Fresh, Fast, Fun" with a reminder to homemakers that "Dairy Foods Make Summer Meals a Circus." In the beginning, the Romans created the circus as an arena for games of skill, something like athletic contests or Olympic Games in today's society. As time w-ent on. however, the game became contests for survival as the victorious gladiators asked the crowd whether their opponents should live or die, somewhat similar to matadors asking the crowd when the bull should be killed. Later in the Roman era, Nero added a few touches with unarmed Christians devoured by wild beasts. In its heyday, the Circus Maxlmus. as rebuilt by Julius Caesar, was more than a third of a mile long and one-eighth of a mile wide and at capacity could accommodate 350,000 people. The circus had many things going on to appeal in some way to all segments of its audience. The modern circus, which dates from the late 18th century, replaced actual death with the constant threat of death to aeriallsts and high wire walkers. Circus means circle in Latin The form of the early Roman circus became three rings under a big-top tent In the same fashion,gladiators fought each other or wild beasts in all parts of the Roman Circus.

KLEIN'S FARM SUPPLY 216 W. STATE *••*••••••• •**• *•• June is Dairy Month The story of better dairy products is mostly a cooperative story Pure milk, healthy children, and dairy cooperatives go together. For years, farm cooperatives, organized by the dairy farmers themselves, have led in setting higher standards of quality for milk, butter, cheese, ice cream . . . and the many other products made from milk. They have established sanitary regulations, encouraged the use of modern milk-handling equipment, and pioneered in efficient distribution of dairy products. Because cooperatives have shown the. way . . . they are important in all parts of the dairy industry. Today, most dairymen belong to cooperatives. A cooperative creamery picks up milk from the farm. A cooperative delivers it to the bottling plant. Often, a cooperative delivers it to homes and stores. Other cooperatives manufacture butter, cheese, dried milk, ice cream and other products. The abundance of dairy foods available today, their purity and flavor! their price in relation to other foods, is another American achievement. FENTON CO-OP ELEVATOR Curtis Lura, Mgr.
