Peace is the healing and elevating influence of the world. — Woodrow Wilson. » • » » • Peace rules the day, where reason rules the mind.—Williams Collins. • • • • « If It be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.— Romans 12.18. « • * * • Only what feeds and fills the sentiment with unworldliness. can give peace and good will towards men.— Mary Baker Eddy. Peace is the happy, natural state of man; war, his corruption, his disgrace. —James Thompson. * • • * • The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and these are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence.—Elbert Hubbard. Iowa has over 4000 churches and 2500 ministers and priests.. MORE RISK IN PRESENT FEEDER CATTLE PRICES Many good cattlemen have said that they can tell whether they will make money on their feeding operation at the time they write the check for their feeders. Iowa State College farm economists say this year is no exception. The price of feeders is the key to this year's cattle feeding outlook. And so far the price has been high—about a dollar per hundred higher than at this time last year (early October.) The outlook for fattened cattle is more un certain than last year. Francis Kutish, who prepares much of the outlook material, says the range cattle movement is still behind sched ule. When the runs pick up, prices should come down a little unless there is a wild scramble among feeders to get stock for their yards. So, from the economist's point of view, the best policy is still one of watchful waiting. The margin has to be there before a profit can be made. Keep oyster shell before the layers. This is the season oi good will, and, looking down the long list of names oi those •who have shown their good will towards us in 1945, we come to yours. We want to thank you for this good will on your part, and to send just the friendliest of wishes for your happiness and cheer at Christmastime.

START BOOT OF SWEET POTATO VINE IN WATER If you're having trouble storting o sweet potnto vine, perhaps it's because you have the wrong end in the water. The root end Is the one to place In the water, according to Larry Grove, extension horticulturist nt Iowa State College. He says to cut off n small piece of the root end before placing it in water. To tell the stem end from the root end, look closely nt either end to. find where the potato was cut or broken from the vine. Another identification is that tiny buds appear on the stem end. Use o narrow-necked Jar or bottle to hold the potato so It's only half mi,, merged. Smalt strips of wood can b« used between the Jar and potato it o,, opening's too large. And before you bring up that old "they're fattening" bugaboo — notice the calorie chart, Only 100 calorics to the average potato—that's no mow than, apple or banana and less than half a medium piece of pie. Don't miss Danny Kayc's "n,, Wonder Man." filmed entirely In Tech. ntcolor, at the Iris Tuesday and Wtj. ncsday, January 1 and 2. It's a scrtw and 1945s best musical show.
