4 POSTVILLE (Iowa) HERALD Wednesday, February 8, 1961 School News- (Continued from Page Three) tures about the growing, harvesting and manufacturing of sugar cane into sugar. The reporters this week are Jean Winters and Barbara Duwe. Fourth Grade. (Miss Paulson) In reading class, two groups are preparing puppet shows. The third group made scenes inside shoe boxes. Art class this week was spent, making stencil designs. We used crayon to fill in the space made by the stencil. Timmy Hale has received a letter from the New Orleans Chamber of Commerce. This letter was full of information about the city. This city is the topic of our social studies now. We have learned how sugar cane grows, is harvested, milled and refined. Sugar cane has helped New Orleans become a large city. Kathy Babi'ielson brought some kumquats to show the class. We thought it was interesting to learn that you ate the peeling of this fruit, too.

Good manners is our topic for discussion in English. , . We are finishing our chapter on how one material is changed into another in science class. We wrestled the junior high from Jefferson School in Dubuque. Our geography class is finishing the chapter on Latin America. Our next chapter is on coal. AH of the seventh graders gave reports related to jazz in music. For mathematics, we are studying measures. Steven Rose. Seven-B. In home economics, we are study- ingabout manners. We had to give reports on the following topics: hair, teeth, hands, posture, cleanliness, care of clothing and choosing clothes. Unit five in science is about what happens to molecules during chemical changes. Counting and measuring numbers is what we are now studying in mathematics. English is much like home economics just now, as we are studying manners there, too. Last Friday, we handed in our booklets on Latin America for social studies, and on Monday, we had a test covering this material. Frankie Olson. Seven-C.

Then, one Saturday, she phoned me. "My husband is often out of town on Sundays and I don't have the car when he's away," she explained. "Would you and Bill mind if I went to church with you?" Mind! We were delighted—but I was also a little ashamed. And I wondered how many others there were in our neighborhood who would like to go ;,. to our church, if they were given the § encouragement of an invitation. From now on, I'm not waiting to be asked. I'm asking first! ALLAMAKEE • CLAYTON ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE, INC. CASTEN OIL CO. Standard Oil Products COOK'S SHELL SERVICE Firestone Tires FALB MOTOR CO.

The Homemaking III. class was host to a group of preschoolers on Wednesday, January 25. The class spent several days discussing foods children can eat and would enjoy as a part of a meal management unit. Each group planned and prepared their meals, and entertained their -guests. Guests were James Koenig, Ricky Hughes, Lane Radloff. Patti Snitker, Joel Schutta, Aaron Cook, Stephen Lange, Joy Coats, Connie Duvel and Chuck Duvel. Business Education: Bookkeeping. Our classi has followed with interest, the $2,000,000 embezzlement from the Sheldon National Bank. It was especially interesting to read the news the day Mrs. Geiger's bookkeeping system was outlined. This system seemed like an awful lot of work! We decided that we would have enough trouble just balancing our books, without trying anything too fancy. Exploratory Typing. The electric typewriter is still our biggest thrill. Several members of the class have it, now. It seems a though we are always cleaning up after the sophomores, as they don't always remember to blow the eraser crumbs out of their machines or to move the carriage before erasing. A little brushing fixes this. We have put up a "Wanted" sign on the bulletin board, in hopes that we will be able to catch whoever leaves candy wrappers in the drawer of the typewriter table near the back door. We call him "The Milk Dud Kid", since he or she seems to prefer this type of candy to all others. New Library Books. The Cora B.

The disease, commonly called yeiiovv jaundice, has been increasing nationally and in Iowa since 1P5S. Hepatitis is a highly contagious virus disease which attacks the liver. It's a baffling disease that's miserable for tho victim. The first symptoms include fever and chills, headache, fatigue, aching muscles, loss of appetite, nausea and abdominal pain. After about a week of illness the skin and whites of the eyes may turn yellow with jaundice. Convalescence is slow. It's not unusual for a victim of infectious hepatitis to be ill for three or four months. The disease can be fatal. Iowa has recorded six to 18 deaths per year for the past ten years. Infection usually enters the body by way of the digestive or respiratory tract. While the incubation period can be longer, it's usually three weeks to a month. The best protection against the disease is an effective community sanitation program, including sanitary protction of water and milk supplies, and the careful personal hygiene practices by every individual. It's important to have clean hands, and to cover nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing. Although anyone can get the disease, outbreaks are more likely to occur in institutions, in rural areas, and among children and young adults. When a case occurs parents should be alert for any breakdown in sanitary facilities or practices, and watch the daily personal, hygiene of themselves and their children. Protection against hepatitis is possible with an injection of gam­ ma globulin. A physician should be consulted immediately if symp­ toms of the disease, i hasten cxpS ^i ^iiiniiiu miitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniMiii HiiiMiiiiiiHliiililllMiiiinimii """"mmni ^J PROTECT YOUR VALUABLE every minute of the day or night, with a safe deposit box in our fire and theft proof vault. science; Shuttlesworth^e"story of ^TeffiTe rocks; Jessup.
