There is no need to say why although for those who have missed it, this Is Iowa's Centennial year. So. quite naturally, any person or thitu; who has lived in lown for 100 years or more Is attracting more attention than normal. In fact, the Iowa Development commission and the Iowa Historical department are anxious to Acquire knowledge of information of this kind.

The Hour purchasing restrictions caught Iowa's board of control institutions short and the slate administration is moving rapidly to obtain some (lour for bread at the institutions. The board has estimated that it will need 1,125.000 pounds of tlour before October 1 and that it must have 450.000 pounds if it is to meet the needs of May and June. Governor Blue has wired President Truman and Secretary of Agriculture Anderson asking that restrictions be relaxed to permit the board to purchase flour. Meanwhile, bread rationing already is in effect at some of the institutions. WRONG WALLACE. All three gubernatorial candidates addressed the Junior Chamber of Commerce of Iowa at its state convention in Davenport Recently. Gov. Robert D. Blue was the first to appear, speaking at a luncheon. Behind him as he spoke was a big campaign banner reading "Wallace for President." It was explained that the sign was put up in behalf of Dwight Wallace of Ottumwa, candidnte for president of the Junior Chamber, and not for Henry Wallace. Until the explanation was made, however, there was n little embarrassment among Republicans present but the Democrats were enjoying the scene. STOCK FARM PONDS, Having stocked some 48 ponds belonging to farmers with some 50,000 flngerlings last year, the state conservation commission has had over 200 requests to stock other farm ponds this year, according to Everett Speaker, in charge of the program. The 1945 legislature authorized stocking of farm ponds under certain conditions, and provided that once they are stocked the farmer may fish in it without a license—anyone else must have a license—but subject to other state fishing laws. Two of the conditions are that the pond be fenced and that it be at least eight feet deep. Want Want Ad Rates—25 cents per insertion up to 25 words when cash accompanies order.
