The Carl Blumhagens >x Observe Silver Wedding. A group of friends tendered Mr. and Mrs. Carl Uhunhagen a surprise parly last Saturday evening at their home south of Postville. The occasion was the 25th wedding anniversary of the couple. Baskets of food were brought by the guests and at midnight supper was served after the evening had been spent in sociability. Attending the event were Mr. and Mrs. Burnell Anderson and family, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Guhderson, Mrs. 'Eldo Gericke and Vernon, Mr. and Mrs. Lorencc Rcinhardt. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Heusman, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Law son, Mr. and Mrs. Roy Duwe and children, Mr. and Mrs. Lowell Fox and family, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Ball?..

It's Easy To— SPOTLIGHT YOUR WINDOWS INDUSTRY CANNOT MATCH PAY SOME VETERANS GOT Mrs. Jim Hansen, Clear Lake, uses some of her originality and practicability to disguise a midget bedroom window. The window here Is only an inch higher than the pulled shade. So to make It look like a good sized window, she nailed a frame on the wall for the valance board a foot ami a half from the top of the window. It was not to be expected that private business and industry could pay nil these returning veterans on the same scale that they received in the armed services, for even office boys sometimes returned, after four years or so, as lieutenant commanders and majors. Business and industry arc facing, too, their own problem of re­ conversion to civilian life, sometimes a painful and expensive process. There are also obligations to the men and women who helped hold the fort at home while the fighters were absent. The young veteran will know how to meet this situation, as he has met his crises on the high seas and at the front. Ho will buckle down, keep his traditional griping within r6asonable bounds and set about making himself a useful civilian. He may be back at a private's pay now, but the stuff that made him climb in the service will be recognized in office and factory when the selection board begins to look over the names and hands out promotions.— Chicago Journal of Commerce. VACATION—THEY SAY! When Winston Churchill came to this country several weeks ago it was announced prominently that he was here on vacation and to gel much needed rest, says the Howard County Times. But he has been a very busy man for one supposed to be un vacation. The climax was reached last week when addressing a Missouri audience he made it plain that another European war is in the offing and that the United States and Britain should stand together, and that we should get in without so much delay as occurred in the two previous world wars. It is reasonable to infer that the Washington administration concurred in what the great Britisher said as President Truman sponsored the trip to the Missouri town where the speech was delivered and a degree conferred upon Churchill by a small college.

Put an accent on indoor-outdoor living with windows—transform "negative" windows into simple structures that frame lovely outside views. It's possible with new drapery treatment or with easy inside changes you can make yourself, says Mable Russell, of the Applied Art. Department at Iowa State College. Today's living demands the "emancipation" of windows, she says, so free your windows from curtains that mask a view. No, Miss Russell doesn't suggest that curtains be thrown out the window, but she does hold firm to the belief that curtains should be pushed back, simplified or replaced by other window-accents that let in light and lots of it. Rural living and life in small towns docs not demand the privacy that city life needs. So unless there's an unpleasant view to contend with, why shut off indoors from out? Use Valance Boards. For the one-and-only kitchen window—small perhaps — she suggests brackets on either side, perhaps in a vertical series. Perky ivys on the brackets, a simple valance board above the window—and the window seems a new one. No structural change is necessary and yet the window appears to take on greater porportions and importance. The valance board again proves itself in the room where upper edges of window frames are not a single level. If the variance is not too great, the windows can be made to appear to be the same height by a continuous valance board that disguises the upper portions of the high windows and extends down to level of upper edges of the lower windows. You Can Make Them. Valance boards can be made easily at home, Miss Russell suggests. Plywood is a good material; or you may use any other light wood that can be painted. Generally speaking, a straight piece will work into better interior decorations than a scalloped or decor- ited strip, but there are places when either of these might be attractive. Mrs. Carlton Chamberlain, British bride of S Sgt. Carlton Chamberlain, arrived at the home of her husband's parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Chamberlain at Hawkoyc last week from Bristol, Eng. Chamberlain has been confined at the Fitzsimmons hospital at Denver. Colo., since his arrival in this country and expects to join his wife in Ilawkeye soon. The couple were married in England about two years ago.— Sumner Gazette. R. J. Waters spent a'few days last week in the home of his son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. George Waters and family, in Guttenberg. The Waters family sold their home in Gut- tcnbeig recently and on April 1 will move to Hampton where they have bought a homo and where George will engage in business. Paint the board a color which harmonizes with draperies and with the other woodwork and room. Just as valance boards can apparently lower windows by covering part of the upper section, they also can make windows appear higher by extending from the top edge of the window frame up, toward or to the ceiling. To transform the appearance of a dark room with low windows, try eliminating roller shades and place instead a valance board above the window, suggests Miss Russell. Although bay windows arc the pride and joy of many a living room, there are certain ones that produce problems. Try framing the bay or dormer as a whole, on the inside wall with a set of drapes, pulled far back, or a wall border. Eliminate curtains on the windows of the bay. The border might be made of wall paper or of other decorative paper. Valance boards or curtain arrangements won't solve your problems if your house has too many small windows and too few dramatically large ones. Houses of this vintage often ] were built with too many unnecessary doors as well. Miss Russell suggests that small, high-up windows be blocked off. For a finished job that will look well outside as well as in, a carpenter's work is needed. On the other hand, if the exterior is vine- covered, or if windows are in an inconspicuous place, the windows may be blocked off with wallboard inside and remain untouched without. Replace Windows. Then, replace other windows with new, larger ones (a carpenter's job unless you've a real handy man) Or replace an unused door with a large window, wider than the original door. One or two walls of the finished room may be flanked with good windows this way. Casement windows or Venetian blinds arc added expenses that may not be necessary or even desirable. Miss Russell says. Unless there is a reason why the whole window must open, casement windows may be an unneeded luxury. ANNUAL BUSINESS MEETING 1'OSTVILLE CEMETERY ASSN.

Furniture Polish For removing that dull, foggy ap» pearance that furniture may acquire and to conceal fine cracks or checks in the finish, use a simple homemade furniture polish of two parts boiled linseed oil and one part turpentine. It is suggested that the mixture be applied with a soft cloth. Rub the excess polish off with a dry cloth and keep rubbing with the grain of the wood until the surface is entirely dry and will not show a finger mark.
