D. | ^tttmimimmiiiiiitiMimtii IHIIIIIIIIIIIIMIHH' The open house and dedication of the new Community Memorial Hospital was held under near perfect weather conditions the past weekend and the turnout for the event was most gratifying to everyone who had a part in the project. In a small community we expect cooperation from individuals and groups in promoting a community affair but the overall community spirit that was present at the open house was beyond what was even hoped for. Hospital officials, employees, and town council members banded together in a successful effort in promoting this new area unit for the care of the sick. The volunteer help was again the grease that turned the wheels smoothly. The women of the area, under the direction of the Hospital Auxiliary, baked thousands of j cookies and served coffee and cookies to the viewers. The kitchen chores alone for this band of women was a job in itself. Over 70 men studied the hospital plans, attended briefing sessions, and then conducted tours through the hospital. These men came from the town of Postville, surrounding towns, and from the rural areas. Their job was well done. The medical staff gave of their time both days in explaining the more technical rooms in the operating corridor. Wives of the medi-j cal staff served as greeters at the door. The mechanical superintendent had his own staff of volunteers to explain the heating and cooling system. Organists provided beautiful music from the chapel organ. One of the coldest jobs—but one well done—was the supervision of parking done by volunteers of the fire department. These men did a wonderful job of traffic control. The men who acted as door keepers also helped in many other ways aiding other units who needed their assistance. And. there were many others who helped. All in all. it was truly an area effort in which cooperation was the key word to success. Tour guides reported several amusing antidotes. As one tour approached the maternity corridor, a little boy pulled on his dad's sleeve and asked. "Is this where they make the babies?" Another tour guide was showing the pre-delivery room when a woman questioned his pronunciation asking if he had called it the Free delivery room. A prankster filled in a registration card giving his name as Elvis Presly of Kentucky and in the comment lines, wrote "swingy". across icy streams, through briar bushes, under barbed wire and up ati almost vertical hill. "Well soldier," said the Sergeant, when the run was completed, "what do you think now of being a Marine?" "Shucks, Sarge," said the hillbilly recruit, "I ain't even puffing . . . where I comes from we go through country like that just to get to the barn." Medical Staff Of New Hospital Postville Matmen Pin Waukon, 36-11 Postville wrestlers by securing six pins to go along with two decisions scored a 36-11 victory over Waukon in a dual meet held at the Waukon gym. Waukon started well with conference champion Gayle Evans one minute fall over Stan Broadwater, a freshman who is making his varsity debut for Postville. This was immediately followed with Dirk Winkies 5-0 decision over Jim Bursell that allowed Waukon to jump off to a 8-0 team score lead. Jim Lenth after leading by a 6-2 margin at the end of the first period continued to press Gerald Meyer for a fall and finally succeeded with a cradle with 3:01 gone in the match. Jerry Trudo then used a second period switch to reverse Waukon's Ron Mauss to lake a 2-0 lead, Trudo added one more point with a third period predicament to win by a 3-0 score. Jim Lenth's pin and Trudo's decision enabled Postville to tie Waukon 8-8 in the team scores at this stage of the meet. At 127 pounds Les 'Lenth leading 4-0 secured a fajl with just four seconds remaining in the match. Captain John Wittenberger, had the scare of his life before scoring a takedown and predicament good for three points and a narrow 7-6 win over Waukons strong boy. Willis Livingood. Larry Snitker theri started an avalanche of falls for the Pirates in winning by a fall in the 138 pound class. Snitker's pin in 5:30 seconds was the first of four consecutive falls. Dave Schmelzer followed Snitkers pin with a 5:38 second job on Ron Fish. Dave Smith and Tom McNally then followed with identical falls both coming in 20 seconds. In the final match of the evening, freshman Bob Brainard wrestling his first varsity match, lost a decision to Waukon heavyweight, Jay Eaton. The match closed out the varsity meet with Postville leading 36-11. In the reserve matches Postville also won by a 26-7 margin. Winners for Postville included Curt Helium. Bob Bollman, Ted McNally, Denny Meyer, Frank Wickham and Dave Schierholz. Jim Halverson wrestled to a 4-4 draw. Losing for Postville was Ron Miller. Team Results.

The Postville Pirates trounced North High of West Union last Friday night at West Union. 47 to 37. in one of the poorest officiated games seen this season. A cold North High team fought for 104 minutes of the game before they scored a single point. Cold to start with, they then became frustrated in their effort? missing free throws as well as setup shots. However, after they had broken the ice. they closed the scoring gap and made a tight scoring race of the game. Postville took an 11 to 0 first quarter lead and continued the margin. 28 to 11 at the half. North High stormed back in the third period and closed the gap to only three points. With three of the Postville starters out on fouls, the reserves came in and saved the game. The Pirates will travel to Fayette this Friday evening and to Valley high at Clermont-Elgin next Tuesday.

"Farmers in the county constructed 35 miles of terraces on cropland during the year." The construction consisted of 30 miles of standard terraces built with motor patrols, bulldozers, or tractors and plows, and nearly five miles of cut and fill terraces built with bulldozers and scrapers. "We hope that interest in terrace construction continues," stated James Barnes, U. S. Soil Conservation Service, "because terraces provide the best possible protection for cropland. In addition, many short rows can be eliminated. On fields with fairly urt |J standard terraces can ly parallel by varying, grader. Cut and U\ used on fields where ii races cannot be built parallel."
