I ^•ittm iiiiimiitiimiiHiiiMiMiiiiiimimiimii*' This week in our own small way we would like to pa3 - tribute to a man who has rendered a service to his community by his leadership in providing a modern hospital facility for the area. John Kittleson was elected a hospital trustee in November, 1957. He, along with the other two board members—A. L. Peterson and Louis Schutte—were faced with the loss of a hospital in Postville as the state hospital licensing board refused further approval of the old wooden structure in use. These three men, with the help of other community minded individuals, met the problem of a new hospital head-on and a campaign for funds was initiated at once. The funds were subscribed, the building built, and the area welcomed its new modern hospital unit in January of this year. John Kittleson played a most important part in the organizing, building and opening of this new hospital. He gave hours, days, and weeks of his time to this project dedicating his efforts to a better hospital for the community. His dream has been realized—the new hospital is open for public use. After serving just over three years as a trustee, Mr. Kittleson has resigned. We regret, but understand the necessity for his decision. We, along with the members of this community, extend a thank you to 'John Kittleson for the work he has done and recognize his efforts as those of a man dedicated to serving his community. ****** A tip of our hat to the ladies of St, Paul's Lutheran Church for their plans for hospital help. The Women of the Church are setting up a schedule of work hours at the hospital at which they will provide one of their members on duty during the afternoons to assist hospital personnel as needed. ***** Some of our southern vacationers are beginning to show up again now that spring has officially ar­ rived. A few of them arrived too early, though, in time to see the j big snow drifts from our March storms. Track Season Opens On April 1 * * * * So far the Iowa legislature hasn't startled anyone too much. They passed a reapportionment act, such as it is; they tossed out the subject of liquor by the drink and soundly defeated this measure; they brought up the 3r r sales tax and badked away again: they are fighting over the allocation of road funds between cities and rural areas; and they are talking of many more things yet to be done. However, time is running short and many bills will never see the light of day for legislative action. Iowa definitely should go to an annual session of the legislature to keep up with the lawmaking chores on hand. ***** There is something very special about Easter Sunday that sets it off from every other day of the year. As father, mother and the children attend Easter services, each in his or her own way feels deeply the transcendent joy of the occasion. None is too young to delight in the radiant beauty of the flowers, to respond to the note of triumph that rings out in the beloved Easter hymns, to. experience the shining wonder of the Easter story. None is too old to be inspired anew by the promise of spiritual rebirth, so gloriously expressed in the miracle of Easter... so beautifully reaffirmed each year on Easter Sunday. For one and all, old and young, this is indeed the happiest day of all the year! R. E. A. Meeting— (Continued From Page One) Larson, Elkader, electric fry pan; Robert J.

With a rather small nucleus of six lettermen the Pirate team has been working hard in an attempt to launch a successful season which will start with the State Indoor meet on April 1 at Iowa City. Various team positions are wide open at present and many of the candidates will see service in various events during the year. Practices have been hampered up to date, as most workouts have had to be held indoors due to the snow. Leading candidates for various positions include Roger Engelhardt and Mark Miene in the high jump; Roger Hangartner and Ron Trudo in the broadjump; Dick Falb and Ron Trudo in the hurdles; Roger Engelhardt in the shot put; Roger Hangartner, who is also broadjump standout, appears to be the best of a group of dash men that include Don Smith, Dick Schupbach, Al Wirkler, Dick Falb and Dave Smith. Many of the boys including Larry Snitker, Burnell Koth, Jerry Trudo, Tom McNally, Larry Peck, Mark Zieman, Roger Engelhardt, Don Smith and Robert Berg figure to play feature roles in the 440, 880, mile and two mile relay teams. Larry Snitker, John Wittenberger, Jerry Trudo, Burnell Koth and Mark Zieman have shown well in the distant races. The squad members are: Seniors — Roger Engelhardt, Richard Falb, Roger Hangartner, Ronald Trudo, John Wittenberger, Dave Smith, Allyn Wirkler and Don Hoth. Juniors—Leslie Lenth, Mark Miene, Jerry Trudo, Burnell Koth. Sophomores — Robert Berg, Lee Marsh, Tom McNally, Larry Peck, Richard Schupbach, Bruce Smith, Don Smith and Larry Snitker, Mark Zieman and Keith Meyer. The 1961 schedule is as follows: (Class A), Iowa City; April 12, Quadrangle, Monona; April 18, Quadrangle, Monona: April 22, Iowa Teachers Relays, Cedar-Falls; April 25, Bulldog Invitational Relays, Mo nona; May 3, Upper Iowa Conference Meet, Decorah, Luther Col lege; May 9, Dual Elkader, at Postville; May 12 and 13, District Track Meet (Class A); May 27, State Track Meet (Class A).

Exposure to good music is the fastest way toward appreciation of that music. Professor Obrecht says. Be curious; find out what various kinds of music are, like, he advises. Try to discover what really interests you in n piece of music, whether its rock and roll or Rachmaninoff. The musical masterpieces tend to be neglected in our elementary and high schools, says Eugene Helm, assistant professor of music at SUI. 'The average high school graduates knows something about Macbeth, but nothing about the Beethoven symphonies, Macbeth's cultural equivalent." "The sooner a child gets started listening to music, the better," Helm continues. "If he hears good music all his life, he will love it."

An unusual coincidence, she was honored on the same date that wyears ago she became a member of that chapter.' OVER! COLOR! MOST 41 Ik '""i fMAUnl NYBERG'S POSTVimj| Want Ads Gets acres. The county payment rate is equal to one-half the county base corn yield multiplied by the county support price. Payment will, be made in negotiable certificates payable in dollars worth of grain or in cash at the option of the farm cooperator. Sauerbry said the county ASC office is working rapidly to prepare the county and the individual farm details. As soon as the county corn support price figure is available and plans prepared, all farmers will be notified and given an opportunity to decide whether or not they will participate in the program. Most Could "Get More" From Music New Farm Program Getting Underway County extension staff members Max E. Sauerbry and Jack W. DeWolf, and the county A. S. C. committee members Stephen Donlon. Oscar Pufahl and office manager Oliver Eno witnessed a special state-wide televised "meeting" on Monday. At this telecast state ASC committeemen and Iowa State University staff members reported on the possibilities and provisions of the new feed-grain program. The federal emergency feed- grain law, enacted last week, is intended to stop the build-up of feed grain, bring a "modest" increase in farm income and a reduction in government corn storage cost, County Extension Director Max E. Sauerbry said. The following steps will be taken by a farmer who wants to qualify for acreage-reduction payments and feed-grain support prices: He will reduce his 1961 acreage of corn and grain sorghum at least 20 per cent below the farm's 19591960 corn and grain-sorghum base. He will use the diverted acres for conservation only and, in addition, will not reduce the conservation acreage on the farm for the base years. Diverted acres cannot be grazed or harvested. Maximum diverted acres, if your corn and sorghum base is 20 acres or less, can be the whole base. If it is between 20 and 100 acres you can divert the 20 acres plus 20 per cent of the whole acreage, if you wish. And if your corn and sorghum base is more than 100 acres you can retire up to 40 per cent. Those who divert 20 per cent or more of their corn and grain sorph- um acres are eligible for corn price support loans at 14 cents a bushel above the present loan level. There will be no support loans on feed grains for those not cooperating. The diverted-acres payment is determined by the individual farm productivity index applied to the county payment rate. The actual farm payment is the farm rate multiplied by the number of diverted SELLS BULL A Brown Swiss breeder, Ewald C. Brandt of Postville has recently sold the bull Schrandt's Revim, 139011 to Herb Schrandt, Castalia, according to a report from Fred S.

Iowa City —Listening to music for its own sake is a sophisticated occupation, says Eldo'n Obrecht. associate professor of music at The State University of Iowa. "For many people, a play or a letcure has meaning, but a concert is only a series of sounds, often pleasing or exciting, but sounds that do not make sense in the way that words do," he continues. "Actually, music has its own meanings, which listeners may come to follow as they follow the sense of speech." Professor Obrecht says, "and the discovery of these meanings is a sophisticated, but by no means forbidding, activity." These days, there is so much music of all kinds around us that we often do not listen, he explains. For most of us. music merely changes the atmosphere or provides a background for something else we are doing or thinking about. Music for "background" is only one of a number of levels of music appreciation, Obrecht continues. We can listen to music on an emotional level or on an intellectual level. "Anyone is capable of appreciating music at all levels, but YOU EXPECT MORE FROM . . and you get it! FACTS TO REMEMBER — 1. Heat is measured in BTU'S. 2. 1 gallon of AMERICAN Fuel Oil gives 140,000 BTU'S. 3. 1 gallon of AMERICAN Heater Oil gives 135,000 BTU'S. 4. Natural Gas gives 1,000 BTU'S per cubic foot. 5. The standard gas measure is a therm. A therm represents 100,000 BTU'S or 100 cubic feet of gas. 6. It takes 140 cubic feet of gas to equal the BTU'S in a gallon of Furnace Oil. 7. Operating efficiencies for new oil arid gas equipment are about the same. tiimiitimimituitiiiiimmit IMPORTANT — 1. Costs of changing furnace installations is very expensive and takes years to get investment back — if ever. 2. Fuel storage is in the home ready for use anytime the customer desires. With Natural Gas your fuel supply could be cut off at any time. A break in the gas line or insufficient pressure could leave you without heat until the difficulty is corrected. 3. Oil Heat is SAFE, clean, dependable and efficient heat. Oil can be safely stored in the home. Not True with Gas. Gas is highly explosive. A small leak in the basement can result in serious damage to the Dwelling and personal injury to residents. 4. The customer has the right to choose his supplier. Competition determines prices of oil and the Oil Industry is a very competitive industry. With Natural Gas, you no longer have a choice as to SUD- plier. THE DECISION IS YOURS — but first get all the facts. •mimtiimiiimimimiimm REMEMBER —Standard Oil has your fuel oil budget plan payments covered by free insurance. Automatic delivery, if desired.
