MOKE ABOUT DOGS. Some time ago the editor of this paper wrote a few words about the dogs of his boyhood. When you start anything o! that hind It ia well to take into consideration the rest of the family. There were seven children in the Jaqua family from which the editor of this paper r.amp, H? was the youngest and a sister was the oldest. She is tery much alive and her memories are not always In accord with her youngest brother. And so when she read that dog story she took exceptions. More, she -voiced them. I have to confess that In her presence I havu always felt an Inferiority complex. Perhaps It had Its foundation In the fact that she was largely responsible for my upbringing—if mother's words were properly understood. That Is, she had much to do with my care in Infancy. She always did know more than I did, and she still does. And so her corrections of my memories of the dogs of my boyhood are of value. You will remember, that I spoke of Old Lion— the first dog In my boyhood, though I was careful to state that I did not remember of ever having seen him. My sister knew that old dog well. Also sho apparently believes that my story about Lion chasing the wolves away from the loads of dressed hogn being hauled to Waterloo from the Tama county fawns, was in error, and that Lion never made that trip, though he did chase the wolves away on other occasslons. But let her tell it. In a recent letter she said: I have been Interested in your dog stories, especially in the dog editorials. Lion and Ring were part of my life on the old farm home. One thing puzzles me. I can not recall any time that Lion was not at home at night. And I con not recall any time that he went off the farm with Father and the team. Father was always inspecting the timberland and fences. During the time we lived In the old log house he used to ride Lady and carried his rifle that was given him by his grandfather Gamaliel Jaqua who had carried It during his service in the War of the Revolution. Old Lion was always overjoyed to go along on these trips and it was on one of them that Father had a,close-up view ot a flght between Lion and tt'lWOW. Reuben (one of her brothers) and I-were-much Interested In the account, and after that we were sure that Lion would keep the -wolves away and keep us safe. We often heard the walling ot these prairie .wolves during the nights. Lion always slept on the haystack or on ..the shelf of hay where the stack had been •' cut down for use. He lived to be fourteen .'years of age. The night before he died he Bftvea one pt our best horses. It came about 'Jn this way, , When/we moved from the old log house : on the southeast corner of the south 160 of • our place to the new house some distance . north of the site of the log house, Lion 'moved with us and chose for his sleeping Place a spot under the bedroom window. He was almost deaf and his sight was fall- Ing but he was still a good watch dog and would give an alarm when anything went wrong with the stock. On the night I have' spoken of he was'very restless and noisy, and ran to Ihe stable and barked, then back to his bed, still barking. He also scratched the side of the house below the window, Father finally got out of bed and followed him to the barn. Lion lead him to a stall of one of our most valuable horses that had thrown Itself and lay In a position that would have caused HB death before morning. Won died the next night. His follower Ring was only half shepard and was untrained. Father was warned that he might Jump at the cows' tails Instead of biting their heels, and was also told how to cure him. But Father was too busy to train the dog properly. Driving the cows to pasture with my other brothers and sisters was all the training Ring had except one summer when the pigs were pastured in a lot adjoining a corn fleld. There Ring soon learned to keep the pigs out of the corn and the children had nothing to do but pass the time, so far as the pigs were concerned. After that he would sometimes go out to the pasture and try to herd the pigs until feeding time in the evening. His chief talent lay la keeping the skunks out of the chicken nmise. Father believed that skunks were helpful to tfce farmers unless they found tbetr way into the chicken coop. Lion and Ring were both death on skunks. Lion always ga,ve jjptlce of tfte skunks' presence. but never killed them. Ring would kill them and alter each death, he was always a very 40$, HfoweveT one <fey b.e cornered ;Iowa Is curiously lacking in telephone legislation. This may be laid at the feet of the powerful corporation of the telephone systems. They may have blocked such legislation. 1 am not In possession of the facts. However, Iowa does have laws that make the electric corporations, the gns and power companies subject to local agreements. Gas and electric companies have to have franchises and the cities or towns that grant franchises have the power to agree to or refuse rates offered by the companies. Not so the telephone companies. It has been stated though I have not looked up the record, that there are instances In Iowa where telephone companies have remained and operated in towns wlinrp rhoy did not have franchises. Certain It Is that in Iowa the telephone legislation has been neglected. As 1 understand It the only recourse the people of Iowa have against objectionable rates proposed by the tele phone companies Is to refuse to patronize them This refers only to state laws. I believe It IB a fact that there are no state laws In Iowa that will give the people relief from the present situation.. It perhaps may be proper here to digress and speak of the effort being made to bring the present difficulty under the Federal Communications Commission that has power over rates and charges in Interstate communications. Senator Henlng h^s proposed legislation In the United States senate that will cover the present situation If it can be brought nip nbotc nlctnre of five carloads of reinforced concrete pipe was taken a few days ago its «he <mln lef n « left (he Conimfe trortnel* plant sonlh of Hnmboldl. The pipe Wns token to Scott Field, Illinois for i»e In airfield conMmdlon, The Concrete Product* Corporation Ims also sent reinforced "««'-°- lilpe lo Springfield, Illinois, for ns o In (rovcrnnienl prolccls. to bear. However It Is doubtful If such action could be made retroactive or to extend back and (ouch the raise in rates that has already been made. Many people who understand the matter in more detail believe that the present boost of the telephone company is made with the thought of inducing the people to demand a communications commission for the state of Iowa to rule on all such raises. There arc many -doubts if this would be wise. It's result would be to give the companies the privilege of dealing directly with the commission and thus eliminate contact with the people. In short, If the companies felt the necessity of "handling" the commission or to obtain rates tha^ the people object to, the c mission would be preferable to dealing with various towns and cities of Ihe state. This Is stated as a fact but as a thought of what might arise" it this service the HiimhoUH High ichool choir will sing two special umbers. in A, M, Sunday school and Bible lass.

Governor Kendall vetoed It on the ground that It took away the people's rights, and that all such companies should deal with the people direct and not through a commission. What can be accomplished by objections to the telephone boost In prices Is difficult to determine. The most positive thing is to press through the next, session of the state legislature a bill compelling tho telephone companies to secure franchises and acceptable rates from the communities they serve. That would give the people the power to accept or reject the presence of the telephone companies. And why not? Certainly'no'colnpauy^h'ould'bo permitted to establish In any city or town a business enterprise on which the people are so absolutely dependant without the people served having n right t accept or reject the presense of the companies an have a say in the rates charged, If the telephone companies have created thl raise to stimulate a demand for a communication commission, they nmy find themselves facing a la^, through which they will have to deal collective!) with the people they serve. That would be a horse of a different color. HlfMBOLDT CONGREGATIONAL CIIUKL'JI 'The Church of Friendly Fellowship" >V. Chirk Willlniiis, Minister Services for Sunday, May 3, 1942: 10:00 A.

The committees OPPORTUNITY KNOCKING. The small-town business man has opportunity knocking at his door. People are using their automobiles less and less and walking to the home town store more and more. This will progress and bring business back to the home store In no mean volume. The rubber and gasoline shortage is a blessing In disguise and may mean the rebirth ot the small town as the trading center It was 40 and 50 years ago, We are going to stay closer to the home base and not do quite so much gallivanting around and this condition will find the small-town business man caught short if he does not follow up this advantage. He will find that he must give belter service than ever before, because his customers will compare local service with former service in the big towns. Local competition will be keener, and the business man should let the public know what he is able to offer them. The most effective and most reasonable way to do this Is with newspaper advertising. — Renwlck Times. The successful merchant through the years is the man who can fit himself to changing conditions There is a solution for every problem. We have to know how to advance, in good times and how to meet adversity In bad times. The man who can keep his chin up and forge ahead in all sorts of times is the winner. w h * u B8y " C8nt be a ° ne? What fooll »h talk! What about that Nebraska merchant who wa« brought to Humboldt several tiroes to tell the people here how he did it, who built a merchandise business In a town of less than 300 people until it grossed more $500,000 annually? Of course a majority of us do not have the ability to do such things. But we can do a lot better than we are doing and stil not burn much midnight o»l.
