Congress Offered Iowa Nicollet Boundaries The people of Iowa were in a furor In 1845 over the boundaries of the proposed State of Iowa. In adopting the Constitution of 1844 they had asked for the Lucas boundaries which would include the Missouri River on the west. Congress substituted the boundaries proposed by the French mathematician, Nicollet. These boundaries, envisioning a rectangular state of 39.400 sfiuare miles, would have deprived Iowa of the Missouri River and its eastern slope and would have substituted a rectangular section of what is now southeastern Minnesota including such towns as Manknto, Albert Lea, Owntonna, Rochester, and Winona. Who was Nicollet? How did this Frenchman happen to be Hst6d as an authority on the boundaries of lown? His story, illustrating the threads which have connected Europe with America. Is told by Dr. Ruth A. Gnl- laher in the October issue of "The Palimpsest." Nicollet was born of humble parentage in the Duchy of Savoy, in 1786, received a scholarship to the college of Ctuses, showed an early aptitude for mathematics, and went to Paris in 1817 where for over a decade he carried on numerous scientific activities. Financial reverses during the Revo lution of 1830 caused Nicollet to emigrate to America. Landing at New Orleans in 1832 the handsome and cultured French scientist became a popular guest in the homes of French and American families. At St. Louis he became acquainted with the Chou tcaus, and found work in astronomical and geographical observations and surveys along the Red, Arkansas, and Missouri rivers. Intrigued with the idea of exploring the source of the Mississippi, Nicollet set out for Fort Snelling in the summer of 1836. His ability and interest in frontier surveys caused the War Department to invite him to make an official survey of the unexplored area along the course of the Mississippi north to the Canadian boundary and west to the headwaters of the Missouri. It was while thus engaged that Nicollet conceived the boundaries which Congress proposed for the new State of Iowa.

National Service Life is n bargain as for as insurance policies ore concerned However, nn increasing number of d«. charged veterans arc dropping their policies. Kutlsh feels this is n mlstak, on the pnrt of the veteran became premium rates are lower than for ma. tunl and stock companies nnd include a waiver of premiums in case of dij. ability. This feature costs about *i cents per $t,000 in ordinary life Inwr. ance from prlvnte companies. One of the main reasons why scrvitt insurance is n good buy for the veteraj is the fact that the government, In. stead of the Individual, pays such costi ns expense of administration, all cow of excess mortality due to the extn hazards of military or nnvnl servin and the cost of waiver of premium because of disability. Since the 5-year term policy hai been extended to 8 years, a polb holder may keep his term policy i effect'for $ years after he first took ; out at the rate he originally paid. 71* term policy may be converted to i 20-payment life or a 30-pnyment li'. | policy of the same amount or a smallrp amount within the 8-year period. il .'J may start paying premiums on his nn | policy as of his uge nt the time of cop. J version, or nt an earlier date by payinjl the reserve that would have at | cumulated if he nnd taken the policjl out earlier. f Mystery: What Became Of James L. Thompson Snap Bean Is Leader In New Garden Varieties King of the new garden varieties for 1946 is the Longreen Snapbean. The only vegetable winner in the All-American Selections for 1946, it has proved itself superior in trial grounds all over the United States. Longreen Snapbeans are best compared with Tendergreen nnd Keyston- ian, one of the most popular garden types in America and both previous All-America Selections. The Longreen makes a slightly larger and broader leaved plant. Pods are the same attractive type, equal in quality, round, stringless and flberless, and of the same maturity. But Longreen pods average an inch longer than Tender- green and the bean produces more heavily. Larry Grove, extension horticulturist nt Iowa State College, says seed of the new Longreen will be available in limited quantities next spring. Thought Qems TRUTH ETERNAL. What we have in UB ot the image of God is the love of truth nnd justice. —Demosthenes. « • • • • To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. —Jesus, John 18:37. % * » « » Christ did not simply speak the truth; he was truth; truth through and through; for truth is n thing not of words, but of life and being,—Robertson. • • • * * The ideals of primitive Christianity are nigh, even at our door. Truth is not lost in the mists of remoteness or the barbarisms of spiritless codes.— Mary Baker Eddy. The greatest friend of truth is time; her greatest enemy is prejudice; and her constant companion is humility. —Colton, » « • • • Falsehood is in a hurry; it may be ot any moment detected and punished; truth is calm, serene; its- judgment is on high; its king cometh out of the chambers of eternity.—Joseph Parker, In 1850 the Reverend James L. Thompson ran for Governor of Iowa ! on the Whig ticket. He was defeated by his Democratic opponent, Stephen Hempstead of Dubuque. Soon after 1850, Thompson and his entire family disappeared, baffling the best efforts of Iowa historians to trace him. The story of his career to 1850 is told by Dr. Charles E. Snyder in the October issue of "The Iowa Journal of History and Politics." The Reverend James L. Thompson had served as a Methodist preacher In Indiana before asking to be retired in 1840 at the age of 49. The difficulty of raising a large family on the small earnings of a preacher was a probable factor in his retirement. At any rate he came west to Iowa and acquired an eighty-acre farm on the outskirts of Iowa City. By 1850 the United States Census credited him with n 130-acre farm worth.$1200. His family included his wife Rachel, four sons—Hamilton A., aged twenty-three, James R., twenty. Bannister W., seventeen, and Marion G., thirteen. One daughter, Martha A., was fifteen. Thompson and his wife were born in Kentucky while the children were born in Indiana. In addition to farming, Thompson frequently assisted in the work of the Methodist church nt Iowa City, took an active interest in politics, and was interested in the founding of lown City College. And yet, every trnce of this well-established pioneer and his family has been lost. No record has been found of his farm on the Rochester Road in the Johnson County courthouse. He appears nowhere as the grantor or grantee of any parcel of land. Nor is there any record of n will in his name. He appears in no Iowa City or Johnson County directory after 1850, is not listed in any subsequent census, and his name was dropped from the Indiana list of superannuated ministers who were receiving $200 annually as a pension.

A little spare time should see your dream come true. Of course room for the closet should be made near the rear entrance. Heavy chore conts and overalls need to be warm when put on so locate the closet in n warm plnce it thnt is possible. It will be more convenient, too, if the chore closet is near the washroom. Ventilation in such a closet is especially necessary. Build a rack of slats to keep muddy boots and shoes off the closet floor. Make it removable so the floor underneath may be cleaned. Or Install n ventilated chest in this closet or in the back entry to store Bhoes and boots between trips to the barn and fields.

In fact, they say, set your oven temperature about 50 degrees Fahrenheit lower than the recipe calls for when you're baking in glassware. The reason is that glnss is a better absorber of heat than most metals. And It's especially good for oven cookery, where radiant heat is used. So yenst bread, baked in n glass loaf pan, would take a temperature of 350 degrees for the first 10 minutes instead of 400. For the Inst 50 minutes, the tempernture should be 300 degrees, for bread in glassware, instead ot 350. A chocolute cake thnt ordinnriiy bakes at 350 degrees bnkes better at 300 in glassware. Do a mince pie at 400 degrees rather thnn 450. Vegetable oven dishes require n lower temperature in glassware also. Scalloped potatoes, for instance, arc better when cooked at 335 degrees than at 400. The temperature should be reduced, too, lor any meuts prepared in the oven in glassware. Venl loaf is a good example. Instead of the 2H hours at 385 degrees riquired in metal, use a 325-degree setting when you prepare it in glassware.
