POSTVILLE, IOWA A unique reunion took place in the winter home of Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Hunt at Scottsdale, Arizona, last week. The guests were Miss Edna Stolt of Tacoma, Washington. Mrs. Frances Irelan of Iowa City, Iowa and Mrs. Neva Thompson of Brawley, California. The host and hostess and all the guests served on the faculty of the Postville Public schools more than 40 years ago. Mr. Hunt was the superintendent and his wife replaced him when he went to World War I. Miss Stolt was the high school principal and Mrs. Irian (then Frances Cronin) was the music supervisor. Mrs. Thompson (Neva Saundry) taught in the grades. None of these people have been idle in the intervening years. Miss Stolt, after service as principal at Independence, and Sheridan, Wyoming became State Superintendent of schools in Wyoming. From this position she retired some years ago to make her home in Tacoma. Mrs. Irelan retired last June from her long-held position of supervisor o£ vocal music in the Iowa City public schools. Mrs. Thompson is a civic leader in Erawley being active in the county hospital auxiliary of that city. Mrs. Hunt served a number of years on the Board of Education at Guttenberg where her husband has been practicing law for many years. Mr. Hunt resigned two months ago from his position as president of the Stale Board of Public Instruction because health considerations made a winter residence in Arizona desirable. This group together with others who taught in Postville at the same time has held a reunion each summer for 40 years at the Hunt cottage near Guttenberg. Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Putnam of Postville. Miss Lydia Schukei of Waukon, Dr. and Mrs 1 . Fred Leuhr of Cresco and Miss Helen West of New Brunswick, New Jersey are among those who have attended the reunions through the years. The tuberculin skin testing program for all school pupils and school personnel in Allamakee county is scheduled to begin on February 13. Preliminary schedules indicate that it will take approximately two weeks to visit the nine school centers in the county and administer the test to the nearly 5,000 students and school personnel. This school program is sponsored by the Allamakee Covin ty TB atiS Health Association with the cooperation of the Allamakee County Medical Society, the Iowa TB and Health Association and the Iowa State Department of Health. Con-j ferences with all school adminis- : trators have been held during the past weeks in planning the organization of the program. Parent consent letters have been, or will be shortly, sent home with each pupil to their parents or guardians requesting their aonroval for the administering of this test to their children. It is the hope of the Allamakee County TB and Health Association that in bringing this program to the county they will have the full cooperation of all parents and school personnel. Tuberculin testing programs are becoming the first step in the control of tuberculosis in any community. A positive reaction does not mean that the individual has active tuberculosis but only that at some time the body has been infected by some of the germs. All positive reactors will have an opportunity to have a chest X-Ray. Some of the reasons for a school program are: 1. To establish a screening program to determine the rate nf infection among school pupils m Iowa. 2. To alert positive reactors tii follow good health rules to build and maintain strong resistance against TB and to have a chest X- Ray at least every year. 3. To search for unsuspected active TB among the reactor's household and other close associates Figures just released by the Iowa Farm Safety Council show 13 accidents involving rural people oc curred in Allamakee county during the first 10 months of 1960. according to Earl Kerker, U. S. Soil Con servntion Service. A summary of all accidents occurring to rural people was kept in the SCS office in Waukon. Of the accidents reported, four accidents involved tractors, four were caused by animals, four in haying, and a combine was involved in one accident Eighty seven counties reported 813 accidents in the first 10 months of 1960. Of these 144 accidents involved tractors. Haying, corn pick ers. and power mowers also were listed as the causes of numerous ac cidents. Several drownings were reported and accidents with guns were common. "Studies in the past show that reported accidents throughout the state represent less than one per cent of the total which occurred. How ever, they stress the kinds of accidents and the problems that are present". Kerker stated. "In order to continue these studies, we are again asking the cooperation of residents of the county in reporting farm accidents this year." When wo fully realize the poten tial danger involved in any piece of machinery or any activity in which we take part. Kerker concluded. "We have started toward safer living." TEACHER Mis. Maurice Happ recently retired from the Manly school system after teaching there 28 consecutive years. She has had as high as 36 and as few as 19 students in her classes.
