D. ^mi IIMII III IMIIIII II Ml .ll..*' It isn't often that we have the opportunity to endorse a local man for a state post. This chance has been afforded us now as Northeast Iowa people are endorsing John Falb. Jr. as an appointee to the Iowa Highway Commission. Many people in this corner of Iowa have • been hoping to fiijd a capable man to support as a commissioner on the highway department. Several men contacted Mr. Falb and urged him to consider the post. He has agreed to serve if appointed by the governor. Those of us in Postville know the capabilities of Mr. Falb as a businessman and community leader. SEE US — for — SPECIAL PRICES — on — MASTER MIX BEEF CATTLE FEEDS Hall Roberts' Son POSTVUJJE, IOWA Not only the people of Northeast Iowa—but many throughout the state—are acquainted with John Falb and with the Falb family business interests in this area. We feel that Mr. Falb could render excellent service to the State of Iowa as a member of the Iowa Highway Commission. A graduate of the University of Iowa. College of Commerce in Accounting, his business interests have been wide. He has served 16 years as a member of the Postville Board of Education; is active as a member and director of the Iowa Automobile Dealer's Association; and is sincerely interested in good roads for Iowa. We feel that Governor Norman Erbe will find the capabilities he is looking for in John Falb to serve Iowa as a highway commissioner.

Junior High Schools for Iowa Youth issued by the State Department of Public Instruction. This manual is being used by them to encourage better junior high programs in Iowa school districts. It coincides I in timing and recommendations with the 1960 Conant report on a national level. Education in the Junior High School Years. A study of both booklets indicates that the Postville junior hich is one of the few in this part of the state that has for the last five or six years met most of the recommendations contained in these bulletins. The Iowa report recommends the following course offerings: Art. Foreign Language. Industrial Arts. Homemaking, Mathematics. Language Arts. Music. Physical Education and Health. Science. Social Studies. Speech and Typewriting. All of these subjects are now offered in the junior high. The Iowa bulletin indicates a number of major points concerning any good junior high school: 1. It offers a broad academic and non-academic program to meet the needs of young adolescents. 2. It ideally includes grades seven, eight and nine. (The Postville Junior High is one of the few junior highs in this part of the state to include these grades.) 3. It help-; :e it easier for students to gu irom elementary school to high school, reducing social and academic problems. 4. It needs administrative staff and faculty that has had training and experience with junior high and understands the differences. 5. An exploratory program in such areas as art, crafts, dramatics, foreign languages, homemaking. industrial arts, music and typewriting should be offered. (This has been offered in the Postville Junior high for the past five years.) 6. It needs good record-keeping with much student information. 7. It should have organized guidance and counseling using home rooms. 8. There should be a broad range of teaching methods better to motivate learning. Both of these two new manuals on junior high have been studied by the Postville faculty and administration. Since the recommendations of the State Department of Public Instruction also become part of the standards and ratings made each year of each Iowa School, the Postville district will as a whole, now meet these new recommendations. There are a number of additional changes that will undoubtedly be desirable and recommended over the next few years to maintain and improve the present Postville Junior High: Pirates Trip Fayette, 51 to 44 The Postville Pirates downed Fayette in a conference tilt on the local floor last night. 51 to 44. The Pirates took a 14 to 12 first period lead; dropped behind 31 to 24 at the half: evened the count at 33 all at the end of the third quarter: and scored 18 points in the final frame to win 51 to 44. Heins led the Pirates scoring with 21 points. Mike Smith was high for Fayette with 13. Box Score. Postville Hangartner Heins Engelhardt Trudo Thoreson Kicsau Miene Wirkler Falb .. . Totals .

Chevalier, C COUNTY ASC REPORTS ON CORN LOANS Corn from the 1960 crop offered as collateral for price-support loans in recent weeks shows a steady decrease in moisture content, according to Lester Smith, Chairman of the County ASC Committee. Mr. Smith expressed the hope that if favorable drying weather continues, the corn for many of the producers who desire loans may meet the minimum moisture requirements before the deadline of May 31, 1961. Since the average moisture content has been higher than normal, the number of applications has been small thus far. About 60 per cent of the corn represented in the applications has met the eligibilty requirements. In a few scattered cases, blighted and moldy corn have caused rejection because of quality. In general, eligible corn must grade No. 3 or better, and through' the month of February may not exceed 21 per cent moisture in a six-foot crib. Farmers who desire a price-support loan are encouraged, to bring a sample of their stored corn to the county office for a preliminary quality and moisture determination. If this sample indicates eligi- Robert C. Wilson. District Direc-[ tor of the Immigration and Nntur-j alization Service. Omaha. Nebraska.! today urged all aliens in the States of Iowa and Nebraska, who have not yet filled out alien address report forms, to do so before January 31 at the nearest Immigration and i Naturalization Service Office or local Post Office. i The Immigration official pointed, out that the law requires all non- citizens, except persons in diplomatic status, foreign representatives to certain international organizations, such as the United Nations, and aliens here temporarily as agricultural contract laborers, to report their address to the Government each January- Mr. Wilson added: "The parent or legal guardian of an alien child under 14 years of age must fill out the address report form for such child in order to comply with the law". He declared: "We have tried to make it as convenient as possible for non-citizens to meet the address report requirements: and, in view of serious penalties for willful violation, all persons subject to the address report law are urged to fulfill this obligation before the end of January". Mr. Wilson advised: "It is easy for an alien to meet this requirement. He just goes to the nearest Immigration Service Office or Post Office, fills out the address report form and returns it to the clerk. Any one-citizen who is ill may send a friend or relative to obtain the card for him and return it to the clerk after it has been completed by the alien". He estimated that 20,000 such reports will be submitted before January 31st in the States of Iowa and Nebraska. Correct—Attest: John A. Schroeder Fred J. Miller John A. Palas C. C. Hoth Harry N.
