SENIOR PERSONALITIES Interviews from P. H. S. Nancy Helgerson Dick Falb Sharon Schultz SALT PREVENTS GOITER IN IODINE-LOW IOWA Iodine is one of the chemical elements essential to good health. Lack of it can cause a disfiguring swelling of the thyroid gland, known as simple goiter. Iowa is in a low-iodine area, where there's a deficiency of iodine in food and water, reports the Iowa State Department of Health. Fortunately, there's an easy, sure way to make up the deficiency. Iodized salt supplies all the iodine the thyroid and body need. The thyroid is a small gland located in the front of the neck, just above the breast bone. Research shows that the thyroid forms an internal secretion that contains about 65 per cent iodine. When the body doesn't get enough iodine, the thyroid enlarges. This thickening of the neck is known as goiter. There have been times and places when goiters were considered marks of beauty, but today they're looked upon as abnormalities to be prevented. Some areas have a rather high content of iodine in the soil. This gets to the water and to the plants grown in it, providing the iodine necessary to the body. Sea water, marine plants and sea food all are high in iodine content. In fact, the ancient Greeks and Chinese prescribed ground sponge for treatment of goiter. Not too pleasant to eat, perhaps, but with enough iodine to do the trick. Once a goiter has formed, iodine usually will not make it disappear. But sufficient iodine in the diet will prevent its forming in the first place. It's often difficult to distinguish a goiter from cancer of the thyroid. Therefore it's important to consult a physician immediately when an enlargement in the neck appears. Persons with goiters should be under medical supervision, and never should attempt self-medication. Conscientious use of iodized salt to prevent goiter is the wisest procedure. Nancy Helgerson "I'll take a hamburger and French fries." This is a phrase we might hear Nancy say as she orders a snack after a game, for these are her favorite foods. If there are any record hops, basketball games, or good movies in the neighborhood, you're likely to see Nancy there. She also enjoys writing letters and reading. Shorthand is her favorite subject in school. Throughout High School, she has participated in girls' glee, F. B. L. A., and she is now an active member in G. R. A. Nancy commented that her favorite car was a Ford and that her pet peeve was "people who lie". After graduation she hopes to get a job in Postville. We all wish you the best of luck, Nancy. • « * • Dick Falb Energetic might well be the best word to describe one of the senior personalities of this week for that's just what Dick Falb is, energetic. During the years that Dick has been in school he has participated in band and vocal music and has been a soloist and a member of small groups in both fields. Along with music Dick has been a member of the football, basketball and baseball teams. He also found time to play "Mr. Fuller" in the junior class play and this year was in the cast of Postville's division one contest play. Aside from all his activities Dick has carried a stiff academic load with physics and chemistry being his favorite subjects. He has kept himself outside of school, too. On Saturdays he works at Falb's garage to earn extra money. We don't know what all of it is spent on, but part of it goes towards his record collection. His albums have had quite a playing too. as the Falb recreation room has been the scene of many parties. Dick has recently been accepted at the State University of Iowa and is planning to enter the field of dentistry. Sharon Schultx The senior girl who stands behind the counter at the Palm and serves customers from 4:00-8:00 p. m. is Sharon Schultz. Playing "cupid" is her pastime. Sharon has been active during her high school days at P. H. S. She is a member of both annual and library staffs. She was a B-team cheerleader last year, and the basketball season found her cheering for her favorite sport, which is basketball. -After graduation she would like to get a secretarial job in Cedar Rapids. Her favorite subject, shorthand, and belonging to F. B. L. A should be helpful to her in a business career. When asked what her special ability was, Sharon replied, "talking." Guess she has to be a good "talker" since she enjoys babysitting. Buicks are her favorite make of car and collecting salt and pepper shakers is her hobby. It is interesting to know that Sharon's pet peeve is "people who ask 'what?' when they hear you the first time", althought she admits doing this occasionally herself. campaign for 15 per cent for cities and towns. L. A. (Pat) Touchac, secretary of the Waterloo Chamber of Commerce and chairman of the urban street organization claims only 13 per cent of all county roads in the state are unsiirfaced while 46 per cent of the city and town streets are unsuvfneed. State Seal, Governor Norman Erbe has announced a new identification emblem for state cars has been developed and probably will make its first appearance sometime in May. The new emblem, a black .outline map of Iowa with a gold i background, will replace the old | circular decal that has identified I state cars for the past several years. I Erbe said the supply of the old seals is running out and the new emblem was developed "as a more positive symbol, one citizens can easily identify." The new emblem will not replace the traditional yellow shield identifying Iowa highway patrol cars. t State Posts. Governor Erbe has submitted the names of six more appointees to the senate for confirmation. Erbe has nominated Howard Helscher, Cedar Rapids Democrat, to the highway commission to replace anothr Democrat, Robert Brice Waterloo, for a four year term effective July 1. Nominated far a six year term to the board of regents was John C Oberhausen, Dubuque Republican, to replace cither Arthur Barlow, Cedar Rapids or Art Drebenstedt. Burlington, both Republicans, whose terms expire June 30. Erbe also sent up two new names and one reappointment to the Iowa Real Estate Commission. Alton Sanders. Charles City, was reappointed to a four year term on the Commission and George Towne, Des Moines and Stephen Darling. Iowa City, were named to the board. Erbe also renamed Dale DcKoster, Waterloo, to the advisory board of the Iowa Public Employees retirement system. Meanwhile, the Senate has confirmed Robert Keir, Spencer Republican, for a two year appointment to the state highway commission. Keir. a former state senator and highway commissioner, will serve out the unexpired term of Harry Bradley. Des Moines Democrat. The Senate also confirmed the appointment of Walter Conway, Democratic mayor of Muscatine to a short term expiring June 30, 1963, on the state board of control. Conway replaces John Hanson of Manning, also a Democrat. has no choice in the matter. As a proposed amendment to the constitution, the plan must be approved in identical form by the 1963 legislature and then put to a vote of the people before it can become effective. WARN AGAINST USE OF TRACTOR Don't use that farm tractor to run into town for the groceries. You may not make it back. Using a farm tractor ns an all- purpose runabout sharply increases the chance for a serious accident, the slate safety department warned today. Use of farm tractors as utility vehicles is becoming nn increasing safety problem, according to a preliminary report to the department by the Institute of Agricul ture Medicine at the State Univer sity of Iowa. The safety department and the Institute are co-operating in a state-wide study of tractor acci dents on the highways. According to the report, there's an increasing tendency on the part of farmers to jump on the tractor for various short trips not directly related to field work. This can lead to unnecessary trouble because "the farm tractor is not built or equipped for all-purpose travel, and the more it is used on the highways the more the operator is exposed to acci dents," said 'William safety education din He pointed out fts has poor brakes, i stability, and offers for the driver.

WVWWVWWVkV F££D&SUPPLY K '<9^/Ao ycOUfi_ GRINDING £, M/XING' !-HDVV?J COMPLETE reftTlLITEf} SERVICE Liquor By The Drink Bill Is Soundly Beaten There were three developments this past week regarding the Iowa liquor situation. First, the House of Representatives, by a vote of 79-22, swiftly defeated an attempt to legalize liquor-by-the-drink in Iowa. The measure was offered by Rep. John Duffy, Dubuque Democrat, as a substitute for a bill aimed at regulating key clubs. The Eastern Iowa leislator described the key club bill as "subterfuge, hy- procrisy and a sham." Duffy said the key club bill, in effect, lealizes liquor-by-the-drink "half-way." Duffy contended his proposal would bring the state $18 million a year in revenue. After disposing of Duffy's proposal the House passed and sent tp the Senate a bill that would give communities and counties rather broad powers to control key clubs The measure, which passed 96 to 11. empowers cities, towns and counties to establish strict rules for operation of all clubs where liquor is consumed. A club would need a $500 bond and would also have to pay an annual fee of $100. Before receiving a license a club would have to list all of its members. Thirdly, Governor Norman A. Erbe took a swing at the Iowa Liquor Commission saying it was not living up to the intent of the legislature and appeared to be "more like a liquor promotion commission than a liquor control commission." Subsequent to his statement Erbe sent a list of recommendations, in bill form, to the legislature for consideration by the so Ions. His main recommendation was to put the liquor control commission under the state budget laws. This would require the commission to submit an itemized budget show ing anticipated expenditures and receipts. Erbe also recommended the leg islature ban gifts of anything of value by manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors of liquor to state liquor commission members if it's wo J- tli painting it's worth painting with NYBERG'S STORE POSTVILLE, IOWA or employees. He also wants the liquor commission to spell out and enforce its regulations on liquor sales and promotion representatives in Iowa. Road Funds. The second major battle of the 58th general assembly is shaping up to be a real humdinger. The first, of course, was reapportion ment. The second—distribution of road funds. The House Roads committee has sent out without recommendation, 1 a new road use tax formula which would increase the city and town share of the road fund from eight to 13 per cent. The new formula would give the primary road system 47 per cent of the road fund and secondary roads 40 per cent. Presently secondary roads get 50 per cent, primary roads 42 per cent and cities and towns eight per cent. In addition, cities and towns get two per cent "off the top" before it is allocated on the regular formula basis. The Senate highways committee has also voted out a road fund bill—this one is known as the sliding scale. After allotment of $2.1 million "off the top" for railroad crossings, park and institutional roads, research and planning, the money- would be allocated on the following basis: For 1962: primary roads 50 per cent, secondary roads 40 per cent and cities and towns 10 per cent. For 1963: primary roads 49 per cent, secondary roads 39 per cent and cities and towns 12 per cent. For-1964 and subsequent years: primary roads 48 per cent, secondary roads 38 per cent and cities and towns 14 per cent. Meanwhile a grass-roots organization known as the urban Street and Highway Research Association is conducting quite a stir with its District Attorney. Donald O'Brien, former Wood bury county attorney, is expected to be named United States attorney for the northern district of Iowa, succeeding F. E. Van Alstine Aid To Dependent Children. Officials of the state board of social welfare say they may have to reduce aid to dependent chil-; dren by approximately S6.00 a person receiving such aid for the period before July 1. The cut will be necessary because the board has failed to win legislative approval lor a transfer of funds which would increase the money available for the ADC grants. The board has requested the legislature to transfer $350,000 from funds appropriated for old age assistance but not required for that program. Implied Consent. It's rather doubtful the Senate will approve the house bill to require motorists suspected of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated to take tests for intoxication. The measure provides a motorist who refuses to submit to intoxication tests will have his drvcr's license suspended for 60 days. X-Ray Machines. A bill has been introduced in the Iowa House designed to prevent excessive radiation from leaky Xray machines used principally in medical and dental cases. low:) Health Commissioner E d m u n d Zimmerer told the House public health committee that 70 per cent of the machines checked in a recent partial survey were faultv to some extent. Shaft Plan. Governor Norman Erbe's mail is running about five to one in favor of the so-called Shaft plan of legislative reapportionment. Erbe said he is getting between 10 and 15 letters a day on the measure which has passed both houses. Some of these letters have contained pleas not to veto the Shaft plan.
