VINDICATOR AND REPUBLICAN. ESTHERVEiLE, IOWA, TUESDAY, MAT 16, 1939 Orleans Hotel Is Sold The Orleans Hotel on Spirit Lake, which has been tinder the management of the Burnside family "for 30 years, was sold this week to Mr. and Mrs. P. E. Weatherly, formerly of Mason City and Clear Lake. Karl Burnside of Kansas City, Mo., came Friday to assist his mother, Mrs. Mabel A. Burnside with the final sale of the property, which was transferred to the new owners last Wednesday. The new owners will have the hotel and cafe open Saturday, May 13, for the start of the fishing season. Included in the sale was the New Orleans Hotel, dance pavilion and cafe, and oil station. Mrs. Burnside retained her own home cottage and adjoining cottage and property, and intends to continue to make this her summer home. She has operated the resort herself since the death of her husband, Guy Burnside, eight years ago. Railroad Hotel Mr. Burnside built the third and fourth hotels on this site. The first was a pretentious affair, with 200 rooms, built in 1883 by officials of the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern railway. It was torn down in 1889 because its owners thought the lake was going dry. The second hotel, smaller, burned Jan. 21, 1908. Mr. Burnside built a third hotel in 1909 and it vburned May 10, five days before it was to open. The fourth hotel was built at once and was ready that August. Remodeled That, the present hotel, was gutted by fire and one wing destroyed July 3, 1936. Mrs. Burnside then made it a '20-room modern hotel to replace the 60-room summer hotel. \ Changes to be Made The new owners have had considerable experience with hotel and lakeshore property, coming from the Clear Lake community. They are planning to make many changes in the setup at Orleans, including the remodeling of the dance pavilion with an opening later with a big time orchestra. They plan to redecorate the cafe under the pavilion which will be C. E. PERSON Real Estate and Insurance We represent some of the best American Old Line Companies] _ Phone 87 PROFESSIONAL CARDS W. T.

Not blurred, because moving almost directly toward camera. (A HE best way to get clear, sharp action pictures is to use a camera with fast shutter action—and, ot course, a correspondingly fast lens. However, many ot us don't have fast cameras. So, to take pictures ot real action, snowing fast-moving objects without blur, we must utilize several simple tricks. The first trick is—shoot moving objects when they are coming almost straight toward or straight away from you. An object appears to move much slower when recedingbr, approaching and, in a picture, is less •likely to blur. A second trick—move the camera so that the speeding object Is kept . centered in the view finder as you • shoot. This trick is especially good ; with boats, motorcycles, and racing ! automobiles. The background is blurred—but the moving object will be sharp. Ot course, the camera must be moved smoothly and steadily, and a little practice is necessary. Ton will find that with a little practice, pictures taken in this manner are very effective. A third trick—snap action during momentary pauses. These occur in most sparts. A player is moving rapidly—he halts for just a traction of a second, to turn or change direction —and In that split-second you get your picture. You must keep alert to catch these pauses—but they're worth it Tajce a couple ot rolls of film and try a few action shots, using the tricks I 've described. You'll be surprised at the things you can do with your simple box camera or inexp *n sive folding model! John van Gulldnr known as the Orleans cafe. Plans for the future include the completion of a dining room under the pavilion, so that convention groups can be taken care of. The new owners hav$ lour grown children who will assist with the operation of the cafe, pavilion, hotel and service station. Laverne and Miss Wflma have completed their high school work, and Marvin and Marjorie will enter Spirit Lake school this fall as juniors. There is also a two- year-old son, Franklin. Mr. Weatherly has been with the Iowa Hardware Mutual Insurance Co., a number of years and intends to continue this business in the Northwest Iowa territory. V.R. IOWA FARM PRICE INDEX DROPS THREE POINTS DURING APR. AMES, IOWA, May 9: Registering a drop of 3 points for the preceding month, the Iowa farm price index stood at 93 on April 15, the lowest point for any month since December, 1934, with the exception of August and October of last year, Iowa State. College Extension economists said in the May Farm Outlook. As compared with prices a month earlier, hogs, eggs, Iambs and butter were lower on April 15, whereas prices of grain were higher and prices of cattle, sheep and chickens were unchanged. The index of prices farmers pay remained unchanged at 120 for the fifth consecutive month of Apr. 15. The buying power of Iowa farm products dropped from 81 percent of the 1910-14 level on March 15 to 78 per cent in mid- April. A year earlier the buying power was 83. Demand for farm products in April was about the same as in March. General business activity, which in large measure determines the demand for farm products, wai maintained at about the January level during Febro-; cry, March and ApriL Except for a : sharp drop in hifanninons coal production caused .by a itrike in ^tmdustiy, business V activity has not faltered 'tram the]level,e«- faf2u)h«£i £3i* 1a&4tA^fm&. Industrial stock prices have weakened, reflecting the war scare, but no major business indicators are pointing toward further recession. The outlook for foreign demand is even more uncertain than the outlook for demand in the United States. No realistic appraisal can be made as long as political conditions remain so unsettled. But in any case, it seems certain that United States export markets for farm products will remain restricted. Central Europe is, for all practical purposes, lost as an outlet for our farm products—a market which formerly rivaled that of England. The outlook for various farm commodities: Cattle—With general business conditions still showing no promise of an advance, and demand for meat slumping slightly, lower fat cattle prices during the spring and summer seem to be in prospect. Prices of low grade slaughter cattle probably will hold up better than prices of the better grades because of light marketings of the better grades, together with plentiful hog supplies, would exert considerable downward pressure on all cattle prices. Feeder cattle prices are the highest since 1930 and probably will continue high. Hogs—Hog marketings are now running considerably heavier than a year ago. Hog prices most often reach the spring low during May. Usually an upturn begins in June which carries prices to a high point in August This year, with business conditions uncertain and with hog production increasing, the chances are the summer rise will not begin as early as usual. Prices may stay around present levels or go lower, between now and mid-summer. Crops—So far In the feeding season of 1988-89, the government corn loan of 57 - cents a bushel has had only slight, if any, effect on the average price of corn, and practically no effect on livestock feeding: There went 9SO million bushels of "b9ir[tm on farms onr April-1 ttt* " . . ' Iowa supply of free corn to toed nugbt heroine •cam, totting Iowa farm prices toward the loan lev •1. But there Is no re* son to expect that the taut* wiU force up sharply the general level of com prices during the remainder of the season. Dairying—Although the movement of batter out of storage *•* larger in April than in March, stocks continue unusually Urge. With the butter supply situation as it is, it Is apparent that prices will continue at a low level, throughout the summer. If demand does not increase much, a* now seems likely, an even lower level of butter price* will prevail. The butter-buying policy of the government will be the biggest price influence. Bat it is tinhkely that the government will support prices at as high a level as last summer. Poultry—Marketings of chickens during the remaining month* of J9S9 will continue larger t>:an in 1938. There are more chicken* on farms this year and indication* are that this spring*'* hatch will be much largerthan that of a year earlier. While consumer demand for poultry will be greater than in 1938, taking the yr -ar as a whole, very little i..:"-ovement above present levels i<< in $>ro- pect. I Eggs—Heavier egg production during the remainder of 1939, unless a strong improvement in consumer demand occurs, wiil mean lower price* for eggs than were received a ago. The usual seasonal rise in egg prices from late spring or early summer to the end of the year may be somewhat less than usual. V.R. TIME FOR CALYX SPRAY Spray for controlling apple scab, codling moths, green frust worms, brown rot and plum cur- culio should be applied soon, S. W. Edgecombe, extension horticulturist, rcmainded fruit growers this week. Good control of apple, scab cannot be secured unless the calyx spray is applied as noon as 9r> per cent of the petals have fallen and before the calyx of the young apples closes. Edgecombe recommends a spray mixture of 4 quarts of liquid lime sulfur (or 3 pounds of dry lime sulfur) plus 3 pounds of fcydrat- ed lime and l'» pounds of lead arsenate to 50 gallons c' water. This will also control the first brood of codling moth ami green fruit worms. Last year the fruit worms did serious damage where the calyx spray was omitted or applied too late. Plums should be sprayed with a mixture of 2 quarts of liquid lime sulfur (or 1 *4 po;>nd« of dry lime sulfur) plus 3 pounds of hy drated lime and l'-i pounds of lend arsenate to 50 gallons water. Three pounds of wettable sulfur may be substituted for the liquid or dry lime sulfur. This will control brown rot and plum curculio, which were very widespread throughout Iowa last year.
