don smith RECEIVED one of the nicest letters if s been our experience to read in 17 years as an employee of the UDM last week from Daryl Trauger, who has been prompt and exact in reporting the high school sports news to us from LuVerne. Daryl thanked us for the interest in their sports and the fine coverage. In return, we'd like to publicly thank Daryl for his much-needed assistance. We'd much rather write stories about the good done in sports events than about youths the same age in trouble with the law I JUST don't seem to be able to get away from items about Mark Twain, our all-time favorite author (especially in childhood — and that goes back a long ways). Telenews, little brochure sent out with the telephone bill each month, had this to say about Twain in the most recent issue: Mark Twain described his career as an unswerving regularity of irregularity. He wrote checks (and wished he hadn't) to finance such items as a spiral hat pin, a carpet-pattern machine, a self- pasting scrapbook and nearly 100 other products. TWAIN once gave a friend $5,000 for a new business venture. Three days later, the friend was bankrupt. "I didn't know he was going to fail," Twain recalled, "he didn't say anything about it." "October," explained Twain, "is a peculiarly dangerous month to speculate in stocks in. The others are July, September, April, November, May, March, June, December, August, January and February." He also wrote, "There are two times in a man's life when he should not speculate - when he can afford it and when he can't." THE salty humorist finally decided he had taken too many chances, so he turned down the next offer of stock, saying, "absolutely and positively not" to a young inventor and kept his wallet intact. The inventor's name? Alexander Graham Bell. TRUE - Mutual respect between parents and children is essential to the development of healthy, well-adjusted personalities. Age should not affect the manner in which a child is treated or the amount of consideration he gets. Only one question comes to mind — How about the amount of consideration from the child to the parent? DID you know Wyoming was organized as a territory on this date in 1868? It was good news on July 26, 1953 - that's when a truce ended fighting in Korea. THE recent acts of cannibalism in southeast Congo should give unwanted white settlers there the message - they aren't wanted. Maybe if similar atrocities oc-' curred in other parts of the savage world (and because of the recent riot situation in the United States, don't rule us out as savages), the white people would get out and let the original races live out their lives as they have been doing since conception of the earth. Why on earth try to force them into our way of life, including education, religion, etc., if they don't want it. Sometimes when you think about it, those so- called backwards people might be smarter than the highly-educated ones. YOU can tell a child is growing up when he stops asking where he came from and starts refusing to tell where he's going. - ?ACCORDING to one lengthy story we read recently, being tense is good for you. You're not supposed to let your inner conflicts tear you apart - you are supposed to make them work for you. We thought the whole idea of the story was a joke, although admitting some of the basic facts included had depth. YOU can't help but follow women's fashion news— if you ever read a newspaper. One of the latest wrinkles seems to be outfits with a football or baseball motif. Now, we've gone along with this thing pretty well so far- and agree with the reams of copy that have been written about who can and who can't wear a miniskirt or minidress, but think designers have gone a little too far with this one. To top it all off, the athletic designs call for flat- chested thin forms. That's one we've got to vote against. Tuesday, July 25, 1967 Algona (la.)

Go Oldsmobile at your nearest (SI transportation center WAS interested in reading Nikita Khrushchev's views the other day - things he has said since his "retirement" as Soviet premier. Among other things he claimed his actions elected JFK in 1960, supposedly because he refused a request by Richard Nixon to release a U2 pilot. Nikita doesn't have too much good to say about Pres. Elsen- hower and Nixon, and was caustic in his remarks about the latter. IN Philadelphia, an out-of- towner, looking for a man named James Sexauer, phoned various companies. "Do you have a Sexauer there?" he asked the switchboard gal. "A what?" she asked. "A Sexauer." "I should say not," she said, "we don't even have a coffee break." AOK 4-H The girls in the Algona A. O.K. 4-H Club have been busy with workshops and plans for demonstration day, their achievement show and the fair. The girls signed up in the nutrition pro- ject have held their three meetings. One being a dinner, planned, prepared and served by the girls; parents and Mr. and Mrs. Cumberland were guests. Workshops for home improvement found each girl learning to draw to scale and completing a burlap and yarn wall hanging. There have also been meetings for the girls enrolled in clothing. Bartlett To Chicago Wes H. Bartlett, Algona, Trustee, Kiwanis International will attend the mid-summer meeting of the Kiwanis International Board of Trustees in Chicago, July 30-August 3. Sessions will be held at the Kiwanis International Building which houses the General Offices of the organization. At I.S.U. Session Susan Moulton, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Moulton, Algona, was one of many incoming freshmen in the college of home economics at Iowa State University who attended orientation meetings on the campus at Ames last week. DAU'S OARAGE, 125 5. Dodge, Algona, Iowa When Is The Best Time To Soil Test? Summer soil samples taken at the time the crop is actively growing, reflect actual demands placed on the soil by the crop. On the other hand, samples taken during the off season, when the soil may be wet or cold, do not always reflect the soil nutrients that are actually available for the next crop. Research has shown that soil nitrogen is lowest during the summer months, or during the period of active plant growth. Phosphate and potash levels are also lower during this time. Soil pH values are usually higher in the winter months; therefore, summer tests could well indicate a need for lime that might not be shown by a test made in the winter. There are factors to consider other than the accuracy of soil tests. Research has shown that on most soils in the Midwest, phosphate and potash can be applied in the fall and safely stored in the soil during winter months. Nitrogen, in amm9nium forms, can also be applied, provided soil temperatures are 50 degrees F. or lower. If fertilizer is applied in the fall, it has time to react with the soil, be distributed throughout the root zone, thus allowing for more early root contact by the young-growing plant in the spring. Summer soil testing, with subsequent fall fertilizer plow- down, not only indicates crop needs and allows for increased fertilizer reaction, but it also allows you to be more flexible in your spring activities. It takes away the problem of soils that are too wet for fertilizer application, until it is so late that crop yields are reduced. So, give yourself and your crop a chance for a fast start in 1968. Have your soil tested this summer. Your CFS blend plant manager will be glad to help. He's backed by one of the finest soil testing laboratories in the U.S.A. From the time your fields are carefully sampled by CFS until the time the plant manager gives you your recommendations, every care is taken to be sure that our testing is rapid, reliable and accurate. Start your crop program now. Take soil samples and .... FERTILIZE THIS FALL. CUSTOM FARM SERVICES, INC.
