ft? Secretary Benson has set the 1958 wheat support price a' $1.78 a bushel. That ts 22 cents & bushe under the present $2 support This will mean a loss of more than $200 million to U.S wheat producers and their rural communities next year But each of you wheat farmers could lose at least 75 cents a bushel more. In the Wheat Referendum June 20 you have a voting choice between: t. YES—for wheat sup* , ported at $1.78. ' 2. NO—which will bring wheat down to around $1 in the market place. Dollar wheat would mean ruinous corn and livestock prices. Figure your 1958 income either way. You will find you have no choice but to vote YES. Anyone who owns or tenants or has a joint share in ownership or tenancy of a farm growing 15 or more acres of wheat can vote. Your ASC office will give you the voting )lace and hours. A two thirds YES vote is leeded to protect your income. So—be sure to vote YES on 7 UNE 20. VOTE WHEAT REFEREDUM Inserted in the public interest by: IOWA FARMERS UNION Father's Day is coming up ntxt Sunday. We are supposed to be nice to Daddy—cook him a decent meal, let up on the nagging and allow him to do practically anything he wants to. This may put quite a strain upon the rest of the family, but it probably can be managed so long as it's for just one dav. * * • Father has always received the short end of the sheet when it comes to celebrating his day. Nobody even bothered to dream one up for him until we'd been having Mother's Day for years and years. Then somebody had a twinge of conscience and decided that after we get through heaping praises upon Mom on her day there might be a few kind words left over for the Old Man. So we have Father's Day. * * * Mother's Day is operated on the theory that if a woman has given birth to offspring she has her chances for a harp and a halo all madp. There are no reservations in the build-up she gets on her day. Not so with Father. Even the directives the National Father's Day Association puts out are not ideas of ways to show appreciation to Dad, but a list reminding him of the responsibilities and the ways of improving his role of paternity! * , • • Lots of the fathers I know would be genuinely embarrased if we made as much fuss over them on their day as we mothers get on ours. But they might get so they would like decent treatment if enough of us decided to give it to them. No refortri comes easily but if we work at it, there may come a Father's Day when Pop gets, as they put it in political campaigns, equal time with Mother's Day. * • • Having expounded in this column on this theory both last year and this, I can do no less than FRL.

And because my Mother's Day column consisted of the different ways Mom appears to thr members of her own family I moan to do the same thing for Father. There follows a list of the wny the people at our house look on Daddy: * • * To Bill, age 13, Father is a person who: Finds time to take mo fishimT. Always listens when I have a problem. Tells me walking is good for me when I want him to drive me somewhere. Has to dig up the money to pay the bills. Expects me to put on the screens when he's supposed to. Really is the best friend I have. * « * To Mary Ann, age 10, Father is a person who: Fixes my bike, my roller skates and trims my bangs. Acts proud when I do well in a program but is awful hard to get there in the first place. Tells me to ask Mother before saying yes. Hates to scold us but means business when he does. Expects me to hang up my clothes; leaves his own jacket ir. a chair. Really is the kind of man I mean to find when I get married. * * * To Jean, age 8, Father is a person who: Falls asleep when he's supposed to be baby-sitting. Answers my questions and I sure have a lot of them. Teases me by whiskering me when he needs a shave. Hands me a nickel sometimes when I've spent my allowance. Expects me to act like a lady; encourages me to be a tomboy. Really is easy ot get around when I flirt with him. * * * I am Mother, and to me the Father at our house is a person who: Fixes faucets, sharpens knives, listens to my gripes and rubs my aching shoulders. Acts gruff when his emotions are touched. Tells me he's already heard it down town when I tell him a joke. Has to be reminded to take a bath. Expects me to be smarter than I am. Really is nicer to live with than any man I know. * * « Although I know they are completely out of context in a column dedicated to Father, I have heard a couple of dog stories lately. The first one was told to me by E. L. Garbett. A family was dining in a restaurant and the steaks were mighty good but there simply was too much of it. The father called the waitress and asked if he might take the leftovers home. "They'll be real nice for the dog", he said. Whereupon the five year old son in the family piped up, "Oh, goody, Daddy! Are we going to get a dog?" * • • Then there was a little boy who lived next door to a dog he was fond of, named Lady. He called upon her every day but one morning, Lady wasn't there. He was told that the animal was at the veterinarians and the boy went home to report to his parents, "Lady is in the dog hospital. They are having her shovelled!" * • * A great many local women are doing their washing, ironing and other housework in the afternoons these days. Daily Vacation Bible Schools are in session and these gals should really get a salute for giving up so much of their time to teach. It's not easy to do and still keep up with their other duties. * * * Our girls attend Bible School every morning down at the Presbyterian Church. Jeanie came home one day last week with the message that her teacher, Mrs Colwell, had told her they should repeat their Bible verses for the day to their parents. According to Jean, this particular day's verse was, "Go into all the world and spread the gossip to all the people." If you are looking lor a worthwhile summer project for yoiSr youngster (and who isn't) you might call his attention to the Baseball Reading contest currently in session at the library. Each three books read counts as a run and there are prizes at the end of the session. Eligible are children who will enter the fourth grade this fall through the kids who will enter seventh. The contest began May 27 and JR. LEGION BENEFIT DANCE AND CARNIVAL BANCROFT FRIDAY, JUNE 14th Frank Jonas FRI, and SAT.

It is especially good if you don't particularly like sweets as is the case with me.
