The day of the prolonged electric power failure is on the decline, says Agricultural Engineer Vernon Meyer of Iowa State University. However, Meyer says some farmers should still be prepared with an emergency power supply. They include dairymen with electric milkers, farmers who are brooding many chicks and turkeys, and farmers using windowless laying houses where ventilation is provided by an electric fan. Meyer suggests these folks visit with the local power supplier. Check the history of outages in the area and the electric company's BIRTHDAY Mrs. Hattie Nighswonger of Centerville recently celebrated her 101st birthday. She was the sev- 1 enth of 10 children and still has! two sisters living. She has grandchildren, great grandchildren and great, great grandchildren as well as great, great, great grandchildren. If you're not satisfied that power will be restored rapidly. Meyer advises setting up a temporary system such as a tractor-run generator. Or you might want to rent a portable generator from the power company. When a failure does occur, Meyer recommends phoning the company. Such a call may make it easier for them to track down the trouble. WINTER PRECAUTIONS Drivers should be careful not to follow snow plows and other winter highway maintenance vehicles too closely. Accidents often result when plows are stopped by drift.; or ice. 55 Oldsmobile 4-door yllHUmilllltlimilllllMtlllMIIIIIIIIIIHlllllMMlMMIIIlMll^, SPECIAL PAINT VALUES KXJ'U- GET MORE THAN "ftXjR MONEY'S WORTH AND SATISFACTION .GUARANTEED > A LATEX WALL PAINT • 1 1 White & Beautiful Colon!
