Family Living Takes More of Iowa '47 Farm Income FAMILY DEDICATES PLAQUE—An unusual celebra- I FORD HOPKINS FOUNTAIN TEA ROOM \OAST CHOCOLATE SUNDAE JUMBO DE LUXE 'Double Dip of Ice Cream coveted with Chocolate and topped with [aratchinc Cherry tion was held at the Halvorson farm a mile and a half south of St. Ansgar this week when a bronze plaque was dedicated ^commemorating the 95th anniversary of the settlement of the farm by the grandfather, Hans Halvorson Smedsrud (Smedsrud was eventually dropped from the name.) A special service was held on the occasion of the annual family gathering. Pictured above is the plaque inset in a stone which was found on another part of the farm. Carl Halvorson of Beach, N. Dak., a great grandchild of the man who settled on the farm June 24, 1853, gave the dedicatory address. He is pictured above. The farm now under the management of Martin, Clara and Ervin Halvorson, has for the entire 95 year period remained in the family. President of the clan, Ingwald Halverson of Osage, said as he unveiled the monument, "May it stand as a beacon light for many years—an inducement for the younger generation of the family to be earnest workers, maintain the high standards and continue rightfully the honored family tree." It was reported at the annual meeting that the family tree had grown by 11 births and 9 mar- "riages last year, with only one death. There are 449 names in the family roster, with 363 living and 86 deceased. Seventy-five were present at the reunion. Carved on the stone is the slogan, "A family given to hospitality," and from Prov. 22:1, "A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches." BAKED CELERY DRESSING ^_ CRANBERRY SAUCE ^| FLUFFY WHIPPED POTATOES\1 .GIBLET GRAVY HEF SALAD 'HOMEMADE 'ROLL & BUTTER 11AM-2PM STOP TO REFRESH TRY A FRESH LIME ADE Glass Yet Most Have Sum to Invest Conditions Are Far From Those of 1937 Antes—Home accounts kept by 110 key Iowa farm families prove that cash spending for living in 1947 was "head and shoulders" above that spent in 1946. Yes, things did cost more. But also, people bought more goods and services for family living this last year, in spite of the higher cost of most items. Most Own Homes Seventy-four out of the 110 own their own farms, and the rest are renters. The families average 4 to 5 members. According to their accounts, families with higher incomes just don't spend as much as might be expected. The 11 families with incomes under $4,000 spent nearly half as much for family living as the 10 families whose incomes were over $20,000. There was little difference in the spending for food between upper and ' lower income families. And the amount of home raised goods used was almost the same. In the higher income brackets, spending for health went up some. But the increase was sharper in spending for automobiles, recreation-education and home and furnishings. For these items, the high income groups spent about 3 times more than the lowest group. The top income group also gave away as gifts or charities about 4 times as much as the lowest group. Gain Since '46 The fact is that even though family living in 1947 took more of the income than in 1946, conditions were still a far cry from what they were 10 years ago. Little was left over after living bills were paid in prewar 1937. For the 2nd year in a row, farm families in 1947 had a substantial amount of cash left over after living costs were paid. So once again farm families are in a position to invest money. And so many families learned after World war I, wise investments are the security needed today. Families with savings in "liquid" form—easily turned into hard cash for spending—must face the "acid test" in managing them today.
