«0 POSTVILLE (Iowa) HERALD Wednesday. February 8, 1961 ^niwtttiHiimmitiiiuiiiiuMHttili ntilillim -t^ 1 I See It Postville Matmen Win, Then Lose c. by W. ^tmtHttiiiiiiiiittiiiiimiiitiiiiimiiiHMiMmiiMiitt^ The groundhog in northeast Iowa •wouldn't have been bothered by- snow cover last Thursday but if he ventured out there would have been little shadow east as it was cloudy and gloomy. With a memory of past Iowa winters we will hazard a guess that at least six more weeks of winter lie ahead. # * • * • Reapportionment of the Iowa legislature is the hot topic of discussion in the legislature this week. Ve are sure that some plan must be voted to give fair representation to the voters of Iowa. The legislature has that duty to perform this session—it cannot and should not be put off any longer. « • • * • Now that we have a hospital built for the sick of the area we would like to look ahead for a planned program for the care of the aged in the locality. There is a definite need for nursing homes and homes where elderly people can stay and receive care. • • * * • Sometimes we look the countryside over and seek out things on •which to heap our praise. In so doing we often overlook some of the things within our own community. Each time a call is issued by the state bank examiners for a statement of condition of member state banks, we look forward to peeing how our local banks are doing. We never fail to be flabbergasted by the figures we see in the statements of our two banks. Together the assets of these two institutions totals $6,721,165.89. a record unequaled by many communities of considerably larger population. We in Postville can be proud of our banks and their staffs and of the thrifty people who have made these assets rise to the heights they have. They say the best things in life are free . . . it's the worse things that cost so darn much. Coach Nprvard Nalan's matman split a pair of dual meets over the weekend, thumping Elkadcr 35-10 and then were crushed by Cresco 41-2. In the Elkader meet Postville won the first nine matches to take a 35-0 lead. Curt Helium, Jim Bursell and Jim Lenth started off with victories by decisions. Their margins were 3-2, 3-0 and 5-0, respectively. At 120 pounds, Jerry Trudo pinned Geno Little in 3:06. Elkader forfeited the 127 pound division to Les Lenth. Bruce Smith, after a two week lay off due to illness, made quick work of Bill Ekhardt with a 20 second pin. The 138 pound battle was billed as a possible trouble spot for Post ville as John Wittenberger was moved up two weight divisions to take on Kent Rutledge. Rutledge had defeated Wittenberger last year, but John proved to be too much for his Elkader opponent' to handle and won 6-4. Next Dave Schmelzer revenged an earlier sea son loss to * Nyal Clinton with a 7-2 victory. Dave Smith won his match with a :31 pin. Tom Mc nally and Vince Waters then lost by pins to the Vigen brothers in the last two weights. Lose To Cresco. At Cresco, last years state cham pionship team gave the Pirates a real lacing. Enroute to their 41-2 victory they secured five pins and one default. The latter coming when Bruce Smith re-injured an elbow. Cresco scored fplls in the first three weights over Curt Hel lum, Jim Bursell and Jim Lenth. Cresco's Merle Sovereign using a standup and turn in gained a reversal in the last 10 seconds of his match with Les Lenth to edge the Pirate matman 2-0. At 127 pounds John Wittenberger had to settle for a 1-1 draw. Larry Snitker lost a hard contested match to Tom Fenske 8-7. Fenske's 3 point near fall in the last period was the turning point in the match. Gary Dunneman edged Dave Schmelzer by a 1-0 score in the 145 pound division.

During the growing-finishing period these are three principal factors for which the hogman feeds: (1) Economical Gains; (2) Fast Gains; (3) Production of Lean-Quality Carcasses. Heaviest pigs at weaning time usually gain faster, and hang up better carcasses than slow-growing baby pigs.
