A pheasant tlew into the sun for a Sheldon nimrod. who closed both eyes, pulled the trigger, and neatly dropped "John Chinaman." As the hunter reached over for the downed bird, n second cock Hushed, offering a beautiful target. Three shots later the bird was (lying unharmed in the direction of Minnesota. Earl Vosseller was absorbed in thoughts of corn moisture content as he rode his mechanical picker down the rows on his farm near Waverly. A pheasant cock. Hushed by the racket, decided Earl's lap was a likely place to hide. The startled farmer was not too surprised to grab the bird by the neck. The Vossellers had pheasant for supper.

NORTH SIDE DAIRY " Mr. and Mrs. Paul Waters America and our own community, right here at home, stands at the door of the greatest era of prosperity any of us have ever seen. It is up to us whether or not we want to open that door and let this waiting prosperity walk in. To open the door, 19-16 must be 4 *A Year For Doim?." And we can make it "A Year For Doing" if each of us . . . whether merchant, farmer, laborer or professional man . . . now resolves at the beginning of this new year to devote the same unselfish effort to helping solve the problems of peace as he did to solving the problems of war. A let down now with unjustified strikes, lowering of production on our farms or the lack of interest by business and . professional men can be most disastrous and if prolonged, can change 1946 from a year of new hope to one of bitter discouragement. We who attach our names to this advertisement do so as a means to give public expression to the hope and desire that the people of both our nation and our home community will bend every effort to make 1946 "A YEAR FOR DOING" and all of us thereby derive the happiness and benefits it can bring.
