Spring will officially arrive March 21, with or without snow. A number of people have asked us in the past week, "Where are all the house builders planning to build homes in Postville?" A good question for we are pushing closer and closer together within the corporate confines and as yet there is no real indication that there will be a building area of any size opened up in the near future. We need a sizeable tract of land annxed to the town where orderly expansion can take place. This need has been shoved off from year to year until it is now beginning to hurt our building opportunities. ***** Note to all Florida, California and Arizona vacationers. As much as we would like to see you, we can't recommend the weather just yet And besides, fishing won't get underway for another month. ***** Dollar Days are synonymous with Bargain Days, Value Days, or just savings, savings, savings. We invite you to visit the Postville shopping center and take advantage of the dollar saving values being offered this weekend. It's the big sale timed to come at winter's end and just before the Easter season opens. ***** The greatest labor saving device of today is tomorrow. ***** A new freeze-drying method is said to produce dried foods without changing the original shape or size of the product. The food when packaged in air-tight containers will keep without refrigeration and can be reconstituted by a short soaking in water. ***** We take off our hat this week to State Senator Adolph Elvers of Clayton County who is standing firm against party opposition to his voting record on the Schaff reapportionment plan. While we don't necessarily agree with the Schaff reapportionment plarf for whirli Elvers cast the favorable de ; vote, we do agree that he has the right to vote his convictions c ' matter.

Complete Line of Insurance Winneshiek Mutual Insurance Association The annual Selective Service College Qualification Test will be offered to college students April 27, 1961 at approximately 500 colleges throughout the Nation. The score made on the test is a help to Selective Service local boards in considering students for deferment from induction for study as undergraduate or graduate students. Colonel Glenn R. Bowles, State Director of Selective Service for Iowa, announced that the test in Iowa will be conducted at the following schools:. Iowa State University, Ames; Iowa State Teachers College, Cedar Falls; Coe College, Cedar Rapids: St. Ambrose College, Davenport; Luther College, Decorah; Grand View College, Des Moines; Loras College, Dubuque Parsons College, Fairfield; Grinnell College, Grinnell; State University of Iowa, Iowa City; Graceland College. Lamoni; Mason City Junior College, Mason City; Cornell Col lege. Mount Vernon: Morningside College, Sioux City; Buena Vista College, Storm Lake; Wartburg College, Waverly. "The test is for the student's benefit as well as for the Nations' good and each student is urged to take it," Colonel Bowles said. "A local board should have full information i about a student in order to properly classify him, including his class standing and a score on this test. A high test score may compensate for low class standing; and high class standing may compensate for a low test score. "The purpose of student deferments is to give promising students an opportunity to continue to prepare themselves for careers in support of the national interest." "The undergraduate student who today does not plan on graduate study may change his plans as he nears graduation," Colonel Bowles added. "That is the time a deferment may be most important. That is also the time when a test score may be important in the local ; board's decision concerning defer- i ment." I Application materials for the test will be available by the first week of March at the nearest local board office. Students are urged to make application early. The application must be postmarked not later than midnight, April 6, 1961. Full instructional materials are issued with the applications. Have anything to sell?

The advance payments, the Department of Agriculture has pointed out, will total almost $25 million, and will provide needed funds to help producers meet spring planting and other costs. The storage payments, already earned, are being advanced in light of present economic conditions and the cost- price squeeze on farmers. Normally the payments are made when the loans mature. Seth Huisman, Office Manager, Allamakee Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Office, said today that the county office expects to begin mailing the payments to farmers after March 1. The payments will be made on all reseal loans still outstanding. The advance storage payment rates will be seven cents per bushel for corn, wheat and barley; five cents per bushel for oats; and 12 cents per hundred-weight for grain sorghum. The balance of the storage payments due (in similar amounts for the crops) will be paid after maturity dates of the loans, which fall on March 31 for wheat and grain sorghum, April 30 for barley and oats, and July 31 for corn. Under the reseal programs farmers are assisted in keeping grains on the farm and at the same time the storage payments help in defraying storage costs. The advance of a part of the storage payment is expected to encourage farmers to provide additional storage in heavy grain producing areas where it may be needed this year. NEED TO PLAN FOR LATER YEARS STUDY NORMAL CHILD The Iowa Child Welfare Research Station, started at The State University of Iowa in 1917, was the worlds pioneer institution for studying the normal child. The originator of the idea for the station, the late Mrs. Cora Bussey Hillis, then of Des Moines, urged that the normal child be given at least as much scientific study as was being expended on crops and cattle.

Professor Wood row W. Morris told vocational re habilitation personnel attending ; conference last week at The State University of Iowa. "Yet most individuals do little to anticipate and prepare for retire ment," Dr. Morris, director of the Institute of Gerontology at SUI pointed out. "And little is being done by employers, unions, cduca tors and social institutions to help the worker make this important transition to a new way of living.' One approach to a better understanding of retirement ijj. through a better understanding of the psychology of occupations and the meaning of work in the lives of people, Dr. Morris said. Despite a "reverential attitude" toward work, man does all he can to avoid it. Not only does he attempt to shorten his working day and week as much as possible, but he makes every effort to avoid it altogether by retiring as early as possible, in his lifetime, Dr. Morris observed. However, many positive attitudes toward work are fostered by our culture. Work gives man an identity, a reason for existence, a medium of social communication. Though to some, work serves as a "time-killer" or "time-fili- er," to many it is a source of enjoyment, especially for those who take pride in what they produce, Dr. Morris explained. "Retirement, then, while it appears to be a sought-after status, is also fraught with peril and possible sources of maladjustment," Dr. Morris said A need of extensive, carefully designed pre-retirement counseling programs is obvious, he said, and equally important is the need to motivate people through education to want to plan for retirement.

If so, you have lots of company. An estimated 17 million Americans suffer during their lives from an allergic disease, ranging from mild hay fever to severe, crippling asthma. You don't inherit an allergy, but you can inherit the tendency to develop an allergy, explains the Towa State Department of Health. It you do develop an allergy, it may be entirely different from other allergies in your family. There is no single cure for allergy, nor single treatment for all cases. The best source of advice and help is your physician, who can refer you to an allergy specialist if necessary. To be sure your illness is an allergy, and to identify the substances to which you are allergic, your physician will take a thorough history and inquire about your living habits, your occupation, your diet etc. He will examine you and perform the usual laboratory tests, and he is likely to include skin tests. He makes his diagnosis only after considering all the evidence at his disposal. It's real detective work, and it requires skill and patience. Once the cause of your allergy has been determined, you may be able to avoid it. If this isn't possible, desensitization by a series of injections of extracts often is successful, especially in respiratory allergy. The earlier an allergic disorder is discovered and treated, the better the outcome is likely to be.
