Look Out Below! ON WITH THE DANCE! Those who have occasion to meet up with Thomas E. Dewey never come away referring to him as a doubting Thomas. At any rate those who wondered whether 1948 was going to bring any hot weather have their answer.

Thorough soaking once or twice a week, depending upon the weather, is a must. The home owner would be well advised to adjust his hose or small sprinkler to run very slowly, allowing for complete saturation. The practice of brief daily watering wets only the surface and encourages shallow root growth, as roots will turn upward seeking moisture. It is most important that the entire rootsystem, which is at least equal to the spread, be saturated. Systematic watering is necessary with well-established home trees. It is even more vital with newly planted trees. In transplanting, the tree's root system is restricted and the area of ground from which it can obtain moisture is greatly limited. For 2 or 3 years, newly planted trees need great assistance from the home owner. This is especially true when they have been taken from natural environments in grove or forest. There soil retains moisture for long periods. Under artificial conditions, a tree must depend upon outside help during dry periods. *•.?*!.-?Kl 1 ^* V'V ^"T^Wi-sW^"' ^ ! rf< 0 £^:^$&M To Your Health!

Listening in Most of the treasury surplus—$6,683,000,000—has already been siphoned into the national debt, which now stands at $251,600,000,000. The rest reposes in the treasury's cash reserves, which is largely held in banks around the country. As a technical bookkeeping maneuver, $3,000,000,000 will be chopped out of this year's surplus and transferred to next year when the president puts the new foreign aid appropriation bill into effect. In other words, $3,000,000,000 of Marshall plan expense, beginning July 1, is to be DEATH AT TH E CROSSINGS charged against this past year's budget.

One was named McGrady, the other Bill Keenan Story With a Moral am amused by the story about the woman active in social affairs who joined up with a fashionable church for selfish reasons. She just couldn't find time to attend very often—only on Christmas and Easter Sundays. Finally this woman passed away, and when she knocked at The Gate, St. Peter said: "Are you sure you're at the right place? You didn't go to church very often on the earth. She sobbed, "Well, I always went on Christmas and Easter." "Very well," replied St. Peter, "You can spend 2 days in Heaven and the rest of the year in the other place." Moral: You can't go in 2 directions at the same time. A plan far more valuable is to have in mind at all times this simple question: "Could I stop in plenty of time if ah emergency should arise? More specifically the question should be: "If something I can't now see popped out of the sideroad, through the intersection, or over the hilltop, could I stop in time?

Inflation has done strange things to government budgets since the war. Berlin Powder Cask "QARELY has America been called on to •tv deal with a more tricky situation in the field of international relationships than the current Russian treachery in Berlin. Food lines have already lengthened in Berlin. If the Russians can produce panic and use that as an excuse to take over all of Berlin by force, it will create a grave crisis. Now that America, Britain, and France have set up western Germany as a united occupation zone there is no basic need to . continue a military outpost in Berlin. That battered city has been the worst liability of the occupation. But neither America nor Britain wants to withdraw under fire. Only way America would get out of Berlin short of war would be to evacuate Berlin in return for the soviet corridor" between Berlin and Frankfurt, a mistake of the Potsdam settlement putting the Russians astride allied communication lines and railroads into Berlin. One benefit which cannot be ignored in the Berlin blockade is the way it has warned America to be on guard against soviet en- __ . « UCll U.L til C V J£>i HJ1 O Wt»fcJ ii*\- P-"-fciv v* »,»«•-. v.^™ croachmenta. If we had the Russian razzle- pc titors, shooting around the course in 84. ficient caution had been taken. This means caution by both sides. Certainly motor car drivers should be aware that in approaching these crossings they should "stop, look and listen." No one should cross a railroad track without taking definite precautions. On the other side, there is a duty of safety on the part of the railroad and its operatives. They should provide safeguards for such crossings to protect human life. In other words, even though the "other fellow" may be at fault this does not justify risks that may cost a human life. Our neighbor, Illinois, had the worst record of grade crossing accidents. It was first with 364 accidents in which there were 186 persons killed. In these accidents, 371 others suffered injuries. The state showed fewer accidents than in 1946 but more fatalities. Ohio was right behind Illinois having 359 accidents compared with 329 in 1946. There were 173 deaths and 344 injuries in 1947, against IBB deaths and 317 injuries the previous year. Do You Remember? 10 YEARS AGO Dr. and Mrs. C. B. Tice and sons, Arnold and George, and Miss Pearl Roberts returned home early today from a 2 weeks fishing trip to Lake Kabetogoma near International Falls in northern Minnesota. Dr. Tice reported excellent fishing and brought back a 9-pound walleyed pike, reported to be the 'largest taken from the lake this year. In addition the party also brought back the legal limit of fish, 24 pounds for each member of the .party. 20 YEARS AGO Clear Lake—Osage's 19-man golf team invaded the course of the Clear Lake Country club and was turned back to the tune of 36 to 14. The rounds were played as an official match of the North Central Iowa Golf association. C. C. Warden, Clear Lake linesman, proved to be the low medal player of the day with a card of 79. Close on his heels was George Marty who turned in an 81. Carden of the visitors was the best of the Osage com- arrhea is present, there is usually a great deal of fat in the bowel movements. Sickness at the stomach, vomiting, and loss of weight are often P1 In cases which have been present for a long time, diabetes, due to a lack of insulin, may occur. In many cases, not only is fat present in the stool, but also undigested meat fibers. This latter condition, when present, is a strong indication that the pancreas is diseased. If disease of the pancreas is suspected, a thorough study is indicated. A careful X-ray examination of the duodenum or first part of the bowel is advisable, since, if the duodenum is deformed, it is an indication that some disturbance of the pancreas may be present. There nre, of course, other causes of deformed first part of the duodenum. In chronic pancreas inflammation, several measures should be employed. These consist of proper treatment of diseases of the gallbladder and liver, and treatment of ulcer of the stomach and bowel, and gastritis or stomach inflammation if present. If there is a deficiency of the pancreatic secretion necessary to digestion, the patient may be given raw. finely-ground pancreas from an animal. This is served in salt, in as large amounts as the patient can take. A purified extract from the pancreas also may be used. If there is a lack of acid in the stomach, a weak solution of hydrochloric acid may be administered.

When was a person's life first saved by the Pasteur treatment for hydrophobia? A young Alsatian lad, Joseph Meister, was treated on July 6, 1835. This is the first recorded case of a human being rescued from death from hydrophobia. Meister later became concierge of the Pasteur Institute in Paris. At the time of Blackstone, how many crimes were punishable by the death penalty in England? When Blackstone wrote his "Commentaries" (published 1765-69) he estimated that there were 160 crimes entailing the death penalty. The number increased considerably in the next 15 years and at the beginning of the 19th century there were no less than 200 capital crimes. Who designed the blue and white flag that has been adopted as the symbol of Israel? Whut do the colors mean? The flag was designed by David Wolfsohn and Herman Shapiro at the first World Zionist Congress at Basle, Switzerland, in 1897. Blue and white are the traditional colors of the taP.Hh (prayer shawl) worn by Orthodox Jewish men in the synagogue. The use of these colors goes back to Old Testament times. When was the act passed to increase the fee for copyrighting: a book? The act of congress, approved April 27, 1948, provided for increases in some copyright fees. The new fee for registration of a claim to copyright in any published or unpublished work (except a print or label used for article of manufacture), is $4.00, including certificate.

It improves from the first quarter to shortly before full moon, and again from about the last quarter until a few days before new moon. What foods contain iron? Foods which are red, yellow or green usually contain iron. These include eggs, peas, peanuts, carrots, apricots, bananas, cherries, peaches and molasses. How can cut flowers that have wilted be revived? Flowers often revive if the stems are cut under water. Use a receptacle with a large open top and let the flowers stay in the water until revived. Simply placing the flowers in deep water for an hour is another method suggested. Mason City Globe-Gazette An A. W.
