D. f ^•itimiiiimiiiMuiiHtttHiiiiimitiiitHmiiiiiMiiittT A tip of our hat to the street department snow removal crew. It was a big job to clear main street of the 17 inch snowfall last week. The work was completed in good time, though, and there was parking available for the crowds who took advantage of the Dollar Day sale. * * * » s School kids will be finding their spring vacation cut short now as I GET OUR . . . !

Many parents will welcome the reopening of school as kids grow restless at home over extended periods. " * • * « » Northeast Iowa is again honored by having a championship girls basketball team — Valley High of Clermont-E 1 g i n. Our congratulations to Valley High for carrying the colors of Northeast Iowa to the top of the sports ladder in our state. * * * • * Quite a bit of indigestion is caused by people having to eat their words. * • • * 9 If a man's after money, he's money-mad: if he keeps it, he's a capitalist; if he spends it, he's a play-boy; if he doesn't get it, he's a ne'er-do-well; if he doesn't try to get it, he lacks ambition; if he gets it without working for it. he's a parasite; and if he accumulates it after a lifetime of hard work, people call him a fool who never got anything out of life. ***** A man who trusts too much may. be deceived but a man who trusts not enough will live in torment. ***** -^Saw a shipment of brightly colored seed catalogues come through the mail the other day. Spring can't be far away. The Missus will look, at all the colored beauty, plan spacious flower beds throughout the lawn, and then try to badger me into ordering the seed. But my memory turns to j previous years and the work of spading and forming flower beds, the watering and weeding, the extra work of mowing around the beds, etc. and I change the subject. Besides a middle aged man's fancy lightly turns to fishing when spring comes—not to flowers. ***** According to the United States Department of Agriculture more upper income men are overweight than those in the lower income brackets. Money seems to have an opposite effect on women, as lower income women tend to be overweight more often than their upper income sisters. The heavy-weights don't seem to be doing much about it. Only one per cent of the lower income females are reducing and only seven per cent of the upper income males.'
