MARCH FOR IOWA CENTENNIAL There'll be music aplenty—and of ficial music, at that—as Iowa celebrates its Centennial year of statehood. Meredith Wilson's "Iowa"' has been chosen by the Centennial Committee as the official song of the celebration. Theme lines of this number are "Iowa, it's a beautiful name—when you say it like we say back home." It was only a day or two after the committee acted that a friendly little controversy arose over the grammar of those lines. Dr. Lewis Worthington Smith, 80. dean emeritus of the Drake University English department, wrote a letter to Rodney Q. Selby, secretary of the Iowa Development Commission. In scholarly terms, he pointed out that "like" should not be used as a "conjunctive adverb." Therefore, he pointed out, the phrase should be "When you say it as we say it back home." This prompted Mr. Selby to look into some recent books on language and write a jocular answer to Dean Smith. He found academic authority for his observation that "like" can be used in that way occasionally—in a popular song, for instance—even though it is grammatically not quite correct. Another musical number is being written especially for the Iowa celebration. It's a Centennial march, and the composer is Carl King, famous Fort Dodge bandmaster. Mrs. Estella Nierling of Waukon spent a few days at the home of Miss Jessie Meikle recently. Mr. and Mrs. Ed Teepe and family of Elma were Sunday dinner guests at the Dan Higgins home.

"After a mere matter of writing to the Fish and Game Commissions of 48 states and the provinces of Canada, I'm in a position to answer any reasonable questions about fishing and hunting outside Pennsylvania. It's interesting to note the great difference in the attention paid to fish and game by the states. After looking over pounds of literature, I'd say the most progressive states are Maine, Iowa, Illinois, Wash ington, Alabama. Michigan, Oklahoma and Texas." dinner guests at the Edna Bollman home.

As time passed, Mary did not improve. She was more backward in dressing herself than her little cousin Jean. This distressed her mother, and she increased her explaining and demonstrating. "No, darling don't pull your dress all out of shape; just to fasten two little buttons. And. darling, don't you see—take the little red button in this hand. Put our thumb right here. Now take this finger and push it right through this hole." Finally both mother and Mary gave up in disgust. Every child goes through a stage hen he likes to try to fasten his buttons and zippers, and tie his shoe laces. Therefore, the mother was wise make use of Mary's interest in teaching her to dress herself. But she criticised too much and gave Mary too much help. The child finds satisfaction in trying to do things for himself. He likes free hand to experiment and learns through his mistakes as well as his successes. More encouragement and less prodding would help Mary to learn faster. Furthermore, it never pays to push a child, although her cousin, Jean, may be ahead of her in learning. Honor Rev. Merrill. Rev.
