D. ! ^iiiiiHimiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiMimiiiimiiiinmi immune The Albany New York Times- Union conducted a telephone survey to determine how many residents knew the location of hot news spot, Laos. "I don't know where he is," one woman replied. "But he doesn't live here. Why don't you try across the street." • * * « • A sight that startled us last Wednesday was driving past the old hospital building and failing to see a light anywhere. The move from the old building to the new community hospital was completed during the day Wednesday—a job well done by hospital personnel and the ambulance crew.

THOMA Postville, Iowa ***** A tip of our hat this week to the Postville high school basketball squad and the wrestling squad. Coach Jim Foster brought his basketball charges a long way on the victory road in season competition and the Pirates were title contenders most of the way. Coach Norvard Nalan has brought Postville along toward the top in wrestling and the Pirates, new at the sport of wrestling only a few years ago have made fine individual and team showings. ***** All of us are wondering if spring is really here or if there is a lull before the blasts of winter come back to haunt us for several more weeks. Youngsters accept the weather as it comes—as the warmer days are here you see them skoot ing by on roller skates and boys are tossing a baseball around. For most of us a little wishful thinking won't do much harm. ***** With all the laws and govern ment regulations a fellow's down right dumb to steal when there are so many legal ways to cheat. ***** With thoughts turning to spring, home builders in the community are beginning to plan on new homes and remodeling work. So far, it looks like a good building year. There are eight or ten people now making plans for new homes to be started this year. The No. 1 problem in the community still remains — too few building spaces available to give • potential home builders a choice of location and lot sizes. ***** Two youngsters separated from their mother were joyriding up and down the department store elevator. The little girl's ice cream cone was dripping when a lady in a mink coat backed into it. "For goodness sakes," whispered the little boy to his sister. "Be careful, can't you see you're getting fur all over your ice cream." Elkader Wins Sectional Title The Postville Pirates' ended a successful season with a heart breaking loss to Elkader, 59 to 58, in the final game of the Class "A" sectional tournament held in Postville last Saturday night. Elkader become the tournament champions and will play in district action this week. The Pirates- led 15 to 7 in the first quarter only to fall behind 28 to 30 at the half. They regained the lead 57 to 55 with slightly over a minute of time remaining, only to have Bill Wright tie it up on the next play. • The Pirates next at tempt went astray and Wright again hit a jumper' from the free throw line to put the Warriors ahead 59 to 57 with a half minute to play. Postville made one of two free throws and Elkader attempting to stall had the ball stolen by Dick Falb who drove under the basket but. was unable to get away a good shot. The buzzer sounded giving Elkader the win. It was the third Elkader win over Postville during the .season. Ron Trudo and Dick Falb ended their careers by getting 22 and 15 points, respectively. Elkader's one-two punch was John Nagel and Bill Wright with 25 and 21 points, respectively. Box Score.

Senator Hickenloop-I er said, "The bill provides a potential danger because of the authority it grants the secretary to release out of storage feed grains to the market and sell them nt the market whatever the price may be. A procedure of this kind could only lead to a depression of the market." "During the recent hearings before the Senate Agriculture Committee, the secretary as some of his staff expressed concern that there was an emergency and that a bill of this nature was need cd. But I seriously question "-passage of this type bill any practical widespread effect so far as the agricultural part of this country is concerned in this year's production. "Actually, what the Secretary of Agriculture proposes and stated in his testimony is to dump surplus grains on the market to prevent the price from going above the supports. This is exactly the opposite of farm programs heretofore which have fixed support price as a floor with the hope the farmers will get the benefit of prices higher than supports. "Many crops, especially in the southern half of the country, already arc planted and programs are laid out and farmers have gone pretty far toward planning their operations for this year and are looking forward to next year. "Such programs as proposed which have all the earmarks of a price freeze for farm grains are not needed and certainly not at this time under the guise of emergency Card of Thanks THANK YOU—We sincerely wish to thank nil our relatives and friends for the flowers, food, mo- morinl gifts, cards of condolence and kind words of sympathy at the time of the loss of our husband, father and grandfather.

Of Coach Nalan's 27 man sauad 23 will return next year including 11 of 15 boys who won letters. With such a heavy return of lettermen and experienced wrestlers plus the addition of 10-15 boys from the eighth grade junior high program wrestling fortunes at Postville appear bright.

"The proposal made by the Secretary of Agriculture at the recent hearing that farm income would be increased because the farmers who entered the feed grain program would shift production to soy- bans would further imbalance our entire farm program.

The task force reported that raising price supports would increase surplus accumulations, and yet this, was testified, is a major part of the so-called emergency program, "Is the Administration looking for a program just to have a program or are there long-range implications of price control over the market price of grain invested in the power given the Secretary of Agriculture under this proposed' legislation. It is one thing to have high-sounding phrases and well- prepar-ed charts, it is quite another to foist upon the American farmer a controlled-agriculturo program of ceiling prices."
