NYBERG'S Postville, Iowa the passing at his home in Frankville on Monday of this week of George W. Sherman, an old and honored resident of that village for many years. Property owners of Bloomfield township, Winneshiek county, will observe by the list we publish this week that their taxes are in creased from 30 to 45 per cent over what they paid in 1935. The big Allamakee county snow plow was over in this corner of the county the past weekend and helped amazingly in the opening up of two roads in Post township that are main arteries of travel to a goodly number of farmers to whom Postville is and always has been the old home town. The Club of the Hour held its first guest meeting on Monday eve ning, February 24th at the home of its president, Miss Catherine Staadt. There were twenty-five persons present. As you will doubtless recall, Louis Schutte recently had a balcony built along the entire west side of his furniture store, which gave him a lot of extra display room for his furniture, ut he later decided there wasn't sufficient room yet, and so he_has had Jack Powell and Fred Jahneke erect a second balcony ajone a portion of the east side of his store. The following from this section of Allamakee county have been drawn to serve as trial jurors for the March term of the district court and are to appear for duty Monday, March 30, at ten o'clock: Dave Henry, Fred Jahneke, John W.

The Class of 1961 ... SENIOR PERSONALITIES Interviews from P. H. S. ELLEN MARIE STEE Ellen Marie Stee JOE HEINS CAROL FLACK Ellen Marie Stee, better known V> her friends in Castalia as Tootsie, told me this about herself: "I enjoy reading and watching T. V., but my main hobby is embroidering." When I asked her if there was anything that she was afraid of she said, "there surely is." "Chickens give me the creeps. I hate to eat them, but you oan give me chocolate pie anytime." Ellen is the envy of all tne girls in P. H. S., because she gets carried up and down stairs by the boys. She said she sometimes sets the feeling that she is flying, but she really doesn't mind. In high school, Ellen has participated in girls' glee and mixed chorus. We want to wish only the best to such a deserving girl. » • • • Joe Heins SAVE NiOHEY WAYS mm TV/O School News- (Continued from Page Three) what materials are made of to understand these chemical changes. After having a test on this, we started studying what takes place when something burns. We have been studying how to find the area of objects. We multiply the width times the length in mathematics. For our last basketball game against Decorah, we practiced fast breaks. For good work outs we scrimmaged with the ninth grade. Last week we had a test over kinds of sentences in English. A report on a non-fiction book was due the 20th of February. Mr. Olson gave us a test over coal mines. Now we are learning about iron ore and iron mines. In our music class we have been giving reports on famous musicians. Danny Pixler, reporter. Seven-C. In art we are making pictures Many, many times eager spectators have risen en masse clamoring "Joe! Joe!" On the football field- on the basketball floor—on the cinder track—Joe has had a vital job to do and he's done it well. Hardly an angel in behavior nor a "whiz" in class, Joe has that certain something which has made him a key cog in the wheel of Postville High. Without him we'd have fallen flat many times, and because of him we have carried home the winning laurels. Our class just never could have been without Joe. Joe is a "goof-offer!" Give him his car—some time—and a girl to pursue—and Joe's on top of the world. With the aroma of chicken being fried to suit the taste of a connoisseur and with his own blue chevy always at his disposal, Joe presents a picture of masculine contentment. His needs are simple, his desires are few, but men like Joe ire few and far between! Is there a unnform in his future? We hope so, if that's what he wants—if not then we'll see him often as he settles calmly, into the pursuit of agriculture. » * • • • Carol Flack ter 24 which is about giving debates.

A new experience for the students of Postville high school this year has been the opportunity to learn a foreign lan- j i guage. Spanish may not be the easiest language to learn, but we are enjoying ourselves trying. We have accomplished the easier words and phrases and we are not trying to understand the rules. We had a Panamanian visitor one day. His name is Didio Gonzales, and he told us of his experiences in America.
