PAGE EIGHT. THE POSTVILLE HERALD, POSTVILLE, IOWA. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 2, , 9| Marginal jNotesH | Bg Bill The first peacetime Christmas hns come and gone. Many a home was cheerier in having sons, husbands, fathers and brothers with them to 'share in family reunions and the joys that so with the year's .creates! holi days. A number of men in service missed being home by n few days or weeks, and for them family gatherings are planned as soon as they arnve- betated Christmas, so to sjwak Before old 1SM5 is tossed into the discard it might be well to reflect on the important events transpiring in the past twelve-month. A year ago fighting was intensified on European and far-western fronts. Casualty lists were mounting. Then May 8 saw tfie end of the war in Europe and renewed hopes were held for an early end of the conflict against the Japs. They followed their German allies in defeat on August 14 with a little prodding from our atomic bombs Then the boys began coming home They're still coming. Reconversion of industry from war goods to peacetime products was slowed up by numerous strikes which are carried into the new year. Watta mess that was ! Labor union bosses are getting in their dirty work and the laborers and their families suffer as a consequence. Perhaps 1946 will bring a solution to all these ills that follow in the wake of the worst war in history All of us can help bring this about by a bit more of the golden rule being applied in our dealings with our fellow man. It's going to be strange to many of us to refer to the new store firm as Luhmar. S: Huebner, When a firm has been in existence for 65 years in a community as has Luhmun & Sanders, there will be many a time the tongue will slip and refer to it by its former name. To all of the old linn and to the new the Herald extends best wishes for their success and well-being. We note by the iS Years Ago items on page 3 of today's Herald that it was a quarter of a century ago that Carl C. Sander became manager of the Postville Farmers Cooperative Society. That in itself speaks well for the kind if a job he has done. If we remember aright. Carl took over his job with the society "in the red" and has brought it into a flourishing and prosperous business establishment. Yuletide Dinner Parties Make for Family Reunions.

But at one home inot far from this writer's house) the carolers gave out with their sweet voices only to see the lady of the house sit peacefully slumbering in her easy chair throughout the renditions. >Wc don't want to mention any names, but she's the head saleslady in the store that changes ownership January 1, and the Christmas rush there must have wearied her.) She dreamt she heard angels singing. A gentleman with a business address on West Wacker Drive, Chicago, heard of an editorial carried in this newspaper entitled "Slowly Going Out of Business." which had been reprinted in the Historical Society magazine. It was all about the store at Dorchester, Iowa, scenic center of trout fishing for many northeastern Iowans. The Chicagoan writes "some fifty years ago I used to eat the best buckwheat cakes in the world in the old Coppersmith home at Dorchester. The editorial not only has historical interest for me, but the person who wrote it demonstrates a very nice manner of driving home a little criticism on certain phases of our bureaucracy." The caption of the editorial quoted the sign on the front of the old store, placed there after an admission that OPA rulings were "too much for me !"—Oelwein Register. • » » « * Frank G. Lawson, Storm Lake, has helped to solve the housing shortage in Storm Lake. He has purchased some 150 frame grain bins which were originally built about six years ago by the federal government in connection with its surplus grain program. All bins are constructed of cured prewar lumber. At the present time, Mr. Lawson is building a duplex by using three of the larger sized bins. Postville has a number of these useless bins that could likewise be converted into living quarters. • * • * • It didn't "spoil" Otto Appel to throw a little bouquet at him in this column a few weeks ago. We note he is clearing the business section of the heaps of snow that accumulated following the recent snowfall. Here's another orchid to you, Otto. At least, we won't have to push cars away from the incline in front of our shop now until the next snow. Olden days of sleigh rides were brought to mind in Postville the past week when Len Hammel hitched his horse, Dinner Date, to a cutter and gave some of his friends a ride around town. With sleigh bells jingling, the rig attracted a lot of attention as it sped up and down main street.
