On Sunday evening a packed and overflowing crowd witnessed the showing of the "Life of Christ", but in the collection taken in lieu of regular admission fee, only $30.00 was received, which shows that we still have many people to want "alles fir nix." The delightful spring weather caught cold suddenly Tuesday when a powerful wind tore everything and everywhere in this section. The huge flagstaff near William Shepherd's residence was blown over; numerous awnings about town were torn to shreds, and trees, shrubs, buildings, suffered damages. Two fire alarms, the first in over a year' called out the fire fighters during the night. The first alarm at 9:15 called the com panies to the Ward home where a chimney fire, was causing trouble. Shortly after the men had arrived at the Ward house, another alarm was turned in which sent part of the firemen to the Jacobs house, where a roof fire did damage in the amount of $150, and required the vigilance of the firemen until 11:00 o'clock. Wednesday, March 8, 1961 POSTVILLE (Iowa) HERALD 3 GOOD MAINTENANCE LEADS ATTACK ON SHADE-TREE DISEASE INTERSTATE SHOWS CONTINUED GROWTH A good tree-maintenance program is the most important phase in controlling almost all shade- tree diseases, says Iowa State University Plant Pathologist Malcolm Shurtleff. Shurtleff says such things as pruning, feeding, watering and prompt treatment of tree wounds should never be placed 'Second to spraying in disease-control work. Pruning is especially valuable to promoting good tree health, Shurtleff points out. Besides getting, rid of dead and disease-laden limbs, pruning opens up dense foliage and makes spraying more effective. Be sure to burn all limbs you prune off, so you eliminate these sources of infection. Even removing a few trees in crowdel plantings will increase air circulation and promote faster drying—which frequently helps control foliage diseases. Systematic feeding and watering of your shade trees will keep them vigorous and better able to withstand the effects of any disease -that comes along, Shurtleff says. And "doctoring" pruning cuts and other wounds with tree-wound dressings will keep out disease causing organisms. Put these maintenance practices to work first, Shurtleff adds. Then consider spraying if you have the time, equipment, manpower and money. Nine out of 10 people working today can expect to receive social security benefits when the time comes. The time to learn about your rights and obligations is now. Visit your social security office at 356 East Sarina Street, Winona, Minnesota now. Another year of continued growth and progress for Interstate Power Company was revealed with the release of the utility's 1960 annual report. Net income for the year in-! creased $254,639 over 1959. 1 A substantial increase in net income was necessary to provide a reasonable return on the company's total investment, which includes $8,126,873 in plant and property additions during 1960, the report states.
