12 POSTVILLE (Iowa) HERALD Wednesday, December 21, 1960 ^tlHMIMMIIIIlTinilltlltllltltllMltllllllllUltlllllMI'i^ 1 I See It by C. W. D. tHIlHIMMIMMIIIIMI President-elect Kennedy has made a number of excellent choices to his cabinet pos'.s, educated men well qualified in their respective fields. The selections were moderate, middle-of-the road men who •will be as conservative as they are liberal. From early appearances it looks as though the administration will follow a more conservative pattern than was set forward in the democratic platform. Time will tell the true pattern, though. » « * * « Long ago the la'e, Will Rogers had a solution to the traffic problem . . . he would have permitted the highways to be used only by those who have their cars paid for. ***** How the Farmer Doesn't Get Rich Recently in a small Kentucky city, a lady shopper in a super-1 market was told by the check-out girl: "The amount is $12.91." This led to an outcry by the housewife, who said among other things: "No wonder those farmers are getting rich." But a farmer, in line just behind the lady, took a mental note of what her "food basket" actually contained. Here is the list: six bot'les of soft drinks: three pairs of nylon hose; one long playing record; 50 pounds of water softener; one box of corn flakes; a set of six salad bowls; one egg beater: and one quart of milk. This example is not far-fetched in the least. Actually the lady shopper's groceries added up to 52 cents: 29 cents for the corn flakes, 23 cents for the milk. The dairyman who produced the quart of milk got about eight cents for it; while the farmer who produced the corn that went into the corn flakes got possibly two cents for the corn. Our modern supermarkets are now merchandising hundreds of items that are not food, and have no relationship to agriculture. Unfortunately, many shoppers have not yet separated in their own minds what they are paying for food at the supermarkets, and what they are paying for non-food items which reminds us of the story told by an internal revenue man about a man's drug bill. The tax-payer had claimed several hundred dollars in drugs, but when the revenue service men had checked over the paid bills it was discovered that just $25.00 was spent for actual drugs—the rest was for cigarettes, magazines, lunches, cosmetics, etc. Too many people when shopping at a food-selling store, look at the total that comes up on the cash register receipt and fail to separate the various types of items purchased. This is only a small part of the overall public relations job that needs to be done for agriculture. The farmer is now one of the poorest paid workers in the nation and has for years been the target of all other pressure groups to constantly cut farm income and in turn raise prices of articles the farmer must buy. Campbellsville, Kentucky News-Journal. * • • * • "Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clo'hes, lying in a Manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men'." Across the years echo the words of the Christmas story, an inspiration, a promise and a blessing to all mankind. At this holy, joyous season, we wish to all our readers a holiday rich in the spiritual rewards of Christmas, and a full portion of all good things that a happy Yuletide holds.

Church Christmas Programs. Frankville News MRS. ROT KNEESKERN Correspondent Members of the chilblain brigade are already hard at the task of fighting the big ones. Reports from Big Spirit Lake are that walleyes ranging from eight to eleven pounds are being pulled up through ice six inches thick. Large yellow perch and silver bass are also responding to the lure of bright metal jigs and live bait. The main body of West Okoboji is still open, but lots of perch are being taken from the bays covered by enough ice to safely walk on. Best luck seems to be on cloudy days. At Clear Lake the ice is three to four inches thick. Only two fishing shanties have shown up there so far. Biology surveys last summer turned up a good population of walleyes in this lake. Panfish, three to four pound bass and middling walleyes are being retrieved on the Mississippi River near Lansing. The walleyes were taken from open stretches of wa- tr in the channel, the bass and pan- fish from holes spudded in the backwater ice cover. 50-YEAR MEMBER W. L.
