Secretary Beftson has set the 1958 wheat support price at $1.78 a bushel. That is 22 cents a bushel 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 xqu have a voting i choice between: J, YES—for wheat sup. , ported at $1.78. S. NO—which will bring wheat down to around $1 in the market place. Dollar wheat would mean uinous corn and livestock )rices.^ ?igure*your 1958 income either way.

No reform 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 ivith Mother's Day. * « • Having expounded in this column on this theory both last year nd this, I can do no less than VOTE W H E AT R E F E R E N D U M . •/•.v>,i7' ; -: ; V'- v;:;! ^:i^v5:fe»^s i; • : . /Jim El Inserted in the public interest by: IOWA FARMERS UNION Father's Day is coming up next 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, tout it probably can be managed so long as it's for just one day. * • • 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 made. 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! Lois of the fathers I know would toe genuinely embarrased if we made as much fuss over practice what 1 preach. And because my Mother's Day column consisted of the different ways Mom appears to the members of her own family I mean to do the same thing for Father. There follows a list of the way the people at our house look on Daddy: * * ' • to Bill, age 13, father 5s a person whos Finds time to take me fishing. 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 the pay the bills. Expects me to put on 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 tout 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 in a chair. Really is the kind of man I FRI.. JUNE 4th ANDY DOLL And The Ridge Riders 7 SAT.,"JUNE ISlh KEITH KILLINGEH - Orch.

To Jean, age 8, Father is a par son who: ' Falls asleep when he's suppos ed 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. Heally 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 col 1 umn 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 tout there simply "was too much of it. The, father called the waitress and asked if he might lake 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!

'hey are having her shovelled!" • « • A great many local women are doing their washing, ironing and other housework in the afternoons these days. Daily Vaca- .ion 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. Jcanie 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."
