WEDNESDAY, MAY 1, 1046. THE POSTVILLB HERALD, POSTVILLE. IOWA. PAGE SEVEN. Ucftet/ ror the HersUd's Ilomemakers by Iowa State College Home Economists [The Most Vulnerable Group— THE CHILDREN |#1 1 '4 'ft ^ 7 '/^ Here's one European child who's slowly gaining back her health- thanks to American Red Cross aid. Because of lack of food, she is suffering from tuberculosis of the bone, Today's European children tire sick from want of food. So arc the adults. Bui it's the health of today's children that determines what tomorrow's generation of Europeans will be. Here's what one woman medical of- I fleer working overseas with UNRRA [has to say: "After a few months of increased food, a child fattens up and begins to look fairly normal. It is only when you liiid out that the little boy you thoimlit was 8 is really 12 that you realize what has happened to Europe's children." And in China, where millions are existing on grass, weeds, foliage and bark from trees, children look like old rrteii. Their bodies arc shrunken; their stomachs swollen. WM. C. BAKKUM CHIROPRACTOR In Postvillc Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays (JOSEPH B. STEELE ATTORNEY-AT-LAW Office Over Abcrncthy's Store Telephone No. 240 DR. H. D. COLE Dentist . Office Over Citizens Slate Bank CAPITOL NEWS LETTER (Weekly news release of the Iowa Press Association. Material contained herein does not necessarily conform to the editorial policy of this newspaper.) In India, thousands of children are marked to die this year from stnrva tion. Here in America we quibble about whether our children should got three or four cups of milk daily. In Europe some children get perhaps a cup a week—others, none at all. We say our children must have an egg a day. Even in the hospitals of Europe where more food is supposed to be available, patients get an egg only once a week or so. Most get none, Our children should have a small serving of meat per day. Meat practically unheard of in the starving European sections. Their cattle, sheep and poultry were destroyed or carted away by invading armies. Vegetables and fruits must rate high in the American child's diet. Green and yellow vegetables—at leas', one citrus fruit each day—these we want on our children's plates. Yet the European child has not seen fruit since before the war. He's waiting for this year's crop of vegetables before he'll get his first taste of these in five or six years. Chinese children have been living cm rice—fresh vegetables and fruits are almost unknown. l 'ats Are Wanted. We say our children should have butter. Fats such as these are wanted in the starving countries. We say cereals are an essential part of the diet of our children. This is another food the starving countries are requesting. Their children need it. too. If this is the diet our children must have to be healthy, then Europe's and China's and India's children must have it, too. Children do not deal with international politics. Children are not concerned about boundary disputes. Children want to live. Supt. Fred N. Cooper, in recent addresses, has made it plain that he Is putting the problem of a real school of rehabilitation at Eldorn on the shoulders of the people of Iowa. Speaking candidly, ho has left these remarks on the record; 'If we are going to have a program of rehabilitation, then we are going to have to spend some money. We lead the world in education, corn and cattle. Now. we have to do something for Iowa kids. 'It's going to take money. I'm going to ask for a lot of things. If something isn't spent for these youngsters, then you've got to triple the amount of money to do It for them as men. 'Unless the people of the state of Iowa wake up and realize we've got to do something for these boys, we may as well block off the training school, then give it enough money to feed, house and clothe the boys until they are old enough to be transferred to Anamosa." Supplementing his remarks, Supt Cooper said that at a recent meeting of training school superintendents from 26 states it was discovered that only Arkansas spends less per boy per year than Iowa. Iowa's cost is $368 and Arkansas is is $307, and Arkansas doesn't have to heat its buildings New York pays $1,208 and the average of the states is $847. Supt. Cooper declared the Eldora institution "needs a going over from stem to stern," and that "we have a long way to go and haven't even started yet." from 12B to 160. There actually are more than 25 vacancies on the patrol but more than 20 Jobs are being held for patrolmen still in service and to whom the state holds that obligation. Wllkins said about 45 of the 700 men will be selected to undergo an intensive four weeks training program at Camp Dodge in August, after the state guard holds its final encampment The 25 appointments will be made from the 45 trainees and the remainder will go on the patrol reserve list. The 25 new men will be distributed among the 14 patrol districts. One of the reasons for the delay In holding the training program has been the inability to get new cars and equipment for the now men. Spring Fruit Plantings Should Be Put In Early TRIAL COSTS. The cost of conducting the trials of two former employees at the Iowa Training School for Boys at Eldora totaled $3,302 according to the bill submitted to Hardin County authorities by Webster County Auditor Dan J. Rhodes. The amount did not Include attorney fees. It covered only witness' fees, mileage, jury expense, bailiffs, heat and light. Hardin county must stand the cost since the trials were moved from there to Webster on a change of venue, motion. The trials were those of Carl Klatt and Harold Nelson, both of whom were convicted of assault and battery. Whether the state will press action in the remaining coses which were an outgrowth of the trouble at the school last August is to be determined soon. The Iowa fruit grower who wants his spring plantings to be successful will select his plantings site carefully and get his stock in early, say Iowa State College horticulturists. They point out that the earlier plants are put into the ground the better start they will get. If planting must be delayed after the stock arrives from the nursery, the stock should be put in n hcellng-in trench until it can be planted. For planting small fruit, the horticulturists recommend a well-drained location with good loam soil, under­ laid wi'.h lighter soil. And because cold air drains Into low areas.and often accounts for lote freezes, a fairly high area is recommended. Fruit trees also should be planted on level, well-drained ground. How ever, they can be planted on hilly ground if the area is terraced to prevent erosion and to make care easier. Planting on the north or northeast side of the slope will help protect trees from hot summer winds. Grapes should be exposed to the south with the rows running north and south. "How does lonet keep his larm looking to prosperous?" "Why. with Power Aire, ol courts" WATCH FOR BIG Power/Mr* ANNOUNCEMENT A START. The legislative interim committee made a start toward giving the insti tution a going over recently by al locating $50,000 for the Eldora institu tion to help in its building program. Bids have been opened on a new building of a different type in which "bad boys," now being housed at the annex in the men's reformatory at Anamosa, will be taken care of. Other new buildings are planned to house the boys and to replace old structures which have been partially condemned. Condition of some buildings was emphasized recently when new fire escapes were erected. Some f the walls wouldn't hold the escapes. CAMPAIGN. The political campaign pace is stepping up a bit as the June 3 primary | election date nears. Both of the Republican candidates for governor, Governor Blue and George Olmsted, Des I Moines, have full schedules which are | taking them to all corners of the state. In addition, each will use newspaper I advertising and radio to carry his | program to the people. The Democratic candidate, Frank I Miles, who has no primary opposition, | is continuing to carry out speaking engagements which he contracted for while still editor of the Iowa Legionnaire. He is not making political speeches and says he will not until the fall campaign begins. HIGHER PRICES! FOR DEAD ANIMALS Small Animals are just as acceptable to us as larger ones!

But nutritionists say that during the next few months poultry should be appearing more frequently on all menus—city as well as country. The reason behind the poultry consumption push, says Jewel- Graham, extension nutritionist at Iowa State College, is to conserve grain so mil lions of hungry people in foreign lands may cat. Cereal grains 'normally fed to poultry are now needed abroad This means chicken and turkey flocks have to be culled, weeded out, im mediately. Of course, everyone can help the situation immediately by consuming more poultry. Farm families, in par ticular, says Miss Graham, can help by canning or storing birds that can not bo placed on today's menu. J. W.

The state tax study committee has I been giving some thought recently to | the income tax question. There appear to be three views on this: (1) to eliminate the tax altogether, (2) prepare a new schedule of payments, (3) to continue the present 50 percent | rate temporarily or permanently. As this is written it would not be | surprising to sec the income tax completely revised at the next session at | the recommendation of this committee. The committee is also said to favor I the county assessor plan over the | present law which provides for township assessors, giving the more populated areas more than one assessor. NEW GUARD. Most recent news on the new national guard for Iowa came last week from Brig. Gen. Charles H. Grahl Iowa's new adjutant general, who said that the state has accepted its new guard quota with certain reservations. The state's new quota Is 12,000 men. General Grahl said Governor Blue had written Maj. Gen. Butler D. Miltonberger, chief of the national guard bureau, on April 1 that Iown would accept the new quota providing some form of universal training be included and that the state guard would get more federal aid. A bill is now in congress asking additional aid, Gener al Grahl said. The general, who is state selective service director, said if no universal training program is adopted, in his be lief, all state quotas will be reduced by the national bureau.' The pre-war Iowa guard hod an en llstment of 4,500 men but just prior to the start of the war guard officials were given approval for additional enlistments and when the guard was Inducted into the Army it numbered 6,700 men. General Grahl said the increased federal financial aid would go for armory facilities, including building new structures and remodeling and repairing present buildings. The new quqta offered Iowa would require 15 additional unite. There were 84 prior to the war. GOVERNOR. Iowa is now one of only 14 states which doesn't provide its chief executive with a house in which to live. Iowa's present governor was a victim of the housing shortage himself, as almost everyone in the state knows by this time. Iowa's governor is one of 21 who serves a two-year term while one state gives its governor a three-year term and Idaho is switching from a two- year term to a four-year term in 1947. Governors of 25 states serve four-year terms. The average pay of the governors of the 48 states is $10,730, with New York's Gov. Dewey getting the highest salary of $25,000, and the South Dakota governor getting - the lowest of $3,000. The Iowa governor receives $7,500.00. An attempt to raise the salary to $10, 000 was passed by the senate in 1045 but it got nowhere in the house. BATS 1.000 Supt. G. E. Brose of the Barnes City schools was working late one night recently and heard a prowler just as he was getting ready to leave the school house. As he was carrying considerable money, he armed himself with a baseball bat and stepped outside, where he was confronted by a short youth carrying a revolver. Mr. Brose swung his bat with good effect; the robber howled, and ran off. • VETS WANT JOBS.
