The role and the expense of the salesman will be eliminated. S'ranger things have happened, so maybe the cay of the "drummer," the "agent," the "traveling salesman," and the "sales engineer" is coming to an end. ARE KOOKS KOOKIER? Lyon Counry Reporter - It is probably partially spring fever, but some leaders of the students at our top schools are acting like "nuts." One of these leaders recently has announced parts of his program — "booze readily available to the students and contraceptives to be handed out by student health authorities." We doubt whether he is really as "far out" as he lets on— if he got what he says he wants, he'd probably be more shocked than anyone else. V/e're sure that 99 percent of his followers are strictly talking through their hats. V/e'd like to see a school run the way these youngsters suggest. Why not let them take over one of our universities— make it clear to everyone that booze will be handy and that the kidi can live as they please, with whom rhey please and there'll be no rules. Folks in the^jiate can be informed that the "new day" is there for their children, so if they go there they know just v/hat kind of a place it would be. Then maybe tighten up the rules at the other two universities. Moke it clear the faculty end administration runs the school, and will enforce the rules both in and out of class. Just for good measure let's take the screwball professors who seem to pop up in all of cur schools occasionally, and put them all on the one faculty. They can have parades, sit- dowr.s burn draft cards, live any kind of p life they wont. V/e're sure that it would only take a few rr.cnthv to tell the story. The long-haired, •-nort-brained way-out folks would probably turn and run before anyone else. O? coyr-.e they won't turn any school over lo the- "kooki" -. but v/ 6 do wish the students "C'j.d appear just a little more mature at time-.. Thty are acting just as bad as students did half a century ago-but now they're d to be ;o much smarter. Hone-.!/ ..hould compel u-. to admit that o dor, T alwoyi get what we deserve. HI E.

According to the latest available information, crops in this area were headed for a banner year, barring hail or an extended dry spell. High temperature reading for the week was a 90 degree mark while the low was 53. - o - A Kossuth county family, that of Mr. and Mrs. Donald C. McCarthy, who farmed 240 acres at the south edge of St. Benedict, had just been issued the largest family insured major medical expense policy in the United States.

Diamond, Ft. Dodge, father of Phil Diamond. The frame structure was being torn down and a new brick building, 22 x 100 ft. was to be erected on the site. Mr.Diamond said the new building front would match the present Smoke Shop in design, and the interior layout would be similar. - o - The Hantelman Building Crew had a supper in the Martin Hantelman home at Fenton in compliment to Mr. and Mrs. Art Hengel who planned to leave Fenton.

Tjaden, Titonka, were spending four weeks of the summer in pre- ceptorships with general physicians around the state. The underlying idea for the plan was for the medical students to study a practicing physician's techniques. The value of jade iound in the U.S. is about 15 times that of diamonds found here.

The per person cost of the county sheriffs office in 1945 was 22 cents, and per person cost of the county supervisors was 53 cents. One reason that the per person cost of the supervisors was higher was because the board consisted of five members, while most counties of smaller size had only three members. .. . - o - Russell Barber, James Farrell, Stanley Hogan and Eugene Thill, all of Whittemore, had the thrill of their lives when a daily paper for which the boys were carriers took them to Chicago for a four days tour of the city.

If such is the case, he and I went riding around withfis not right, but wrong, some guys I know. That night I On the other hand, if you had had a very guilty conscience and I decided I would tell him the next morning when he called. Before I could tell him, some of his friends did and, well, he got mad and wouldn't listen to me. Now, he says he won't take me back because I would just do it over again. 1 wouldn't because now I know he cares and I love him. Do you think he is right? OUR REPLY: You say at the beginning that you are not "go- no mutual agreement relative to having other dates, why should you have a guilty conscience? If the boy likes" you enough, he'll not stay angry with you for long. Then, it appears, you should talk things over and be sure that you understand just what you expect of one another.
