News sources have reported two major snow storms which passed to the west and north of us and this past week a storm of severe intensity passed south and east of us bringing heavy snow to many areas including the nation's capitol. We can be thankful for every day of reprieve we get from winters fury, but fully expect that Postville will be the center of several storm systems before spring makes its appearance. • * * * • A man's good judgment comes from experience . . . his experience comes from poor judgment. • • • • • Why expect children to sit in the corner reading serious books while the parents spend the evening looking at frivolous television programs? • * * • * Finishing work is being completed on the new Community Me<- morial Hospital and it is expected that the building will be ready for use by mid or late January.

KEITH GRAY, Executor ESTATE OF DORA SCHULTZ, Deceased SPRUCE, PINE, FIB: WHICH CHRISTMAS TREE FOR YOU? Dad, mom or the kids . . . whoever chooses the Christmas tree this year in your family , . . will probably p,ick it from a pile of spruce, pine or flr, says County Extension Director Fred C. O'Hiloy. Fred O'Riley says Iowa State University Forester Robert Davidson tells him that each of the three principal kinds of Christmas trees sold in Iowa has its own characteristics which make it more or less suitable for the situation you have in mind. The spruce is the traditonal Christmas tree species in Iowa. Davidson says. Spruces have rich, dark green foliage that retains its color for a long time. Spruces also have the advantage of good shape. Even trees grown in the Woods under natural conditions are usually symmetrical and have dense crowns. A spruce has the disadvantage, however, of dropping its needles soon after you bring the tree indoors. Firs have a soft green color. Their chief advantage, according to n their needles for a long period "of time. Firs have the disadvantage of poorer shape, on the average, than spruces. For this reason, it's difficult to decide or find a flr grown in the wild sides. Firs look i makes them ideal i ot |~ uses and lor location «9 tant light, source wlUM trees.

Speaking to his favorite nephew who was sitting at his bedside, the uncle said, "Don't grieve, my nephew. I want you to knbw that I'm leaving virtually all of my estate to you." "Oh, uncle." said the nephew, "you are so kind to me ... is there anything, anything at all that I can do for you?" Struggling upright, the uncle 1 i~ a ~ wn s~ gasped, "Yes . . . take your foot off' the oxygen tube." ONE-HUNDRED SECOND John Sage of Kirkville recently celebrated his 102nd birthday.

These areas range from two inches to two feet in diameter and often take from three to five months to fill in again with live grass. Iowa grasses susceptible to the mold include bents, fescues, bluegrasses, and perennial ryegrass. Shurtleff says snow mold fungi are resistant to cold and flourish under winter snow cover. Most damage, however, occurs where snow accumulates to excessive depths and melts slowly — along walkways, driveways, north sides of buildings and anywhere else snow tends to drift. Last year. Shurtleff points out, heavy snow cover lasting into early spring allowed snow mold to develop in practically all Iowa Lawns fertilized after September 15 are most likely to suffer damage this winter. Shurtleff adds. You can prevent snow-mold damage in your lawn likelv easily arid without much cost. Shurtleff says there's no need to treat your entire lawn—only the areas most likely to be affected. Chemicals recommended for spot treating include Calocure. Calo-chlor, Terson. Ter- san OM. Thimer, PMAS and Pano- gen Turf Spray. Apply the treatment before the onset of cold, drizzly or snowy weather. If light snow "Beats you to the punch" you can treat over the snow and let the material work down to the grass underneath. Use either a hand sprayer or a flower-sprinkling can. Shurtleff says most garden supply dealers have or can get snow-mold control chemicals. Put your order in now, though, to insure timely treatment if your dealer has to order the chemical you need. Early next spring, Shurtleff advises, check your lawn for damaged areas. Rake dead, grass, topdress and reseed where necessary. © JZokfiaedeM MARKET BOY OUE STOCK. ie WIDE: OUR KWOWLE.DSE .T0Q WE'RE SURE THIS IS" •COUPON!
