Elkailer's starting southpaw, Welch, had held the Pirates in check for eight innings and moved to flrstbasc to start the final frame. However, B. Chcescman was anything but effective in his relief stint and Welch had to return to put out the flro, but not until live of the seven tallies had registered. Jim Looney relieved the tiring Frank Tehel in the sixth innin;' for Pii .-tville and received credit for the victory, allowing only three hits in the la.-t lour stanzas.

S. Savings Bonds division as well as by the entire nation. Roger F. Warin, state director, in a letter to county organizations Monday urged Iowans to continue to hold their bonds purchased during the war and to buy more bonds to curb inflation, maintain thrift habits, spread the public debt, provide future educational funds, and to build a reserve spending power. Hold County Meeting. A meeting of the county organization was held in Waukon Friday evening to discuss the promotion of sales during the present campaign which runs throughout June and ends July 4. This county organization is made up of the same personnel as the war finance organization which functioned during the war years.

The net proceeds of the sale of tho old newspapers, magazines, waste paper and cartons will be donated to the Fond-For-Faminc campaign to help needy families on the verge of starvation in other countries. Complaint is made by the truckers collecting the paper here that people are not securely bundling the paper, which should be done, Mrs. Casten states. In next Saturday's drive, paper is to be placed at the curbing in front of homes in town where it may be gathered after the dinner hour. People in the country should bring their bundles to town and place these along the curbing of the east side of main street between the Farmers Store and the Casten oil station.

Mitchell of PostvUle7\ Fund Raising Drive For Salvation Army To Start on Monday Mrs. Harold H. Schroeder has accepted the chairmanship for Postville and Post township in the drive to raise funds for the Salvation Army. She announces a county-wide drive will get underway next Monday, June 17, with a house-to-house solicitation in Postville, and an appeal by letters to the rural areas. Allamakee county's quota has.been fixed at $1905, while the quota for Postville and Post township is about $400. Mrs. Schroeder hopes that rural people will respond promptly with their remittance in order that her complete report may be sent in promptly. Self-addressed envelopes are to be included in the mailing. Nationwide Appeal. This is the first nationwide appeal in more than a quarter of a century. Iowans are asked to give $228,000 to the international, national, state and local woik of the Salvation Army. On a national basis, the Salvation Army is seeking six million dollars in voluntary contributions. After World War I, the Army asked and obtained $13,000,000 following its tremendous contribution to the armed services in that conflict. No national appeal has been made since that time. During the present war, the Salvation Army was a part of USO, but did not receive funds from USO other than for the actual costs of personnel furnished and USO Units operated. On an international basis, however, the Salvation Army rendered in World War II, a service that saw 4,000 service clubs, coffee huts, canteens and mobile units in operation on beachheads and in jungles on 26 war fronts, At the retreat at Dunkirk, alone the Salvation Army lost more than $100,000 worth of equipment and a number of officers. • Of the $228,000 Iowa goal, approximately one-half will remain in the state of Iowa for the work of the "Army" here, It is seated. This work includes maternity care for the unwed mother through the Booth Memorial hospitals at Des Moines and Omaha which extends into every county of the state. It also includes the free fresh-air camps for underprivileged children and their mothers. Other Iowa activities of the Salvation Army in this state include missing persons bureau, prison and police court work (with emphasis upon the rescue and parole of the first offender), Red Shield clubs for under privileged boys, community centers, day care nurseries, youth oharcater. building work, men's social service centers and hotels for the friendless emergency relief and disaster work, In addition are numerous services rendered to returning veterans and their families in the underprivileged class group especially, it is pointed out. The war years brought a sudden and frantic challenge to the dairy farmers of Iowa—and the performance, the turn In, broke all records. Shortages of labor, machinery and parts—requests from the government to supply vast amounts of milk and dairy products for the great camps and for military and naval stations in foreign countries seemed impossible, yet it was done. > Production costs were the highest on .record. The Iowa farmer and processor kept producing dairy products until all records had been exceeded of past years. The Iowa dairyman is still producing near record amounts of milk in spite of advancing costs of feed and hired help. # The dairy industry is anxious to speed production of all milk products. Wo want production increased because dairy foods are "First in Foods." They have so much nourishment and are needed so badly to help balance other foods, which give us growth and health. The National milk pail has not been large enough to hold all the milk and milk products wanted in United States and foreign countries. Last year the farmers of the nation produced 122 billion pounds of milk—. this year we will come close to the same figure. Minimum 1946 milk needs are 132 billion pounds. Fluid milk consumption has increased thirty percent. Everything points that this consumption and more will continue. Official reports indicate in 1945 for the United States, sales of whole milk accounted for 57 percent of the farm production, compared to 39 percent in 1935-39. June is nationally known as June Dairy Month. During this month it is the hope of the industry to properly inform the consuming public the correct dairy picture. Those not close to the industry can be quite unaware of handicaps, misunderstanding and turmoil that has confronted the producer, processor and distributor of dairy foods. The consumer can be assured it is not the fault of any of the above as they have put forth untiring effort. Butter production in Iowa has been especially good—1945 records indicate 213 million pounds were made as compared to 212 million pounds in l"944. Over the nation butter production is down 30 to 40 percent. Evaporated milk is down 28 percent. Cheese is down eight percent. Instead of the 17 pounds of butter per person, Americans this year stand to receive less than seven pounds. June is an excellent time to think of those in Europe who need these excellent dairy foods so essential to restore health to children, men and women. 1946 will see huge amounts of cheese, evaporated milk and dried milk sent to Europe. In fact, the quantity proposed for export from this country in 1946 is larger than the peak reached in any year during the war. Recognizing the importance of the dairy industry in Iowa, Governor Blue has issued the following proclamation proclaiming June as Dairy Month. - PROCLAMATION. WHEREAS, dairying and the byproducts of the industry contributes greatly to the maintenance of human health, and WHEREAS, dairy farmers and the entire dairy industry are exerting every possible effort toward producing the maximum amounts of these products and still are unable to meet the demands for them, and WHEREAS, the State of Iowa should encourage and promote added production of dairy products, and our people should have better understanding of the problems of both the dairy farmers and the industry, because a better understanding will aid in the battle against malnutrition both at home and abroad. NOW, THEREFORE, I ROBERT D. BLUE, Governor of the State of Iowa, designate the month of June A. D. 1946 as DAIRY MONTH „ I urge that it be observed as such throughout the State and that all citizens pay tribute to the efforts of our dairy farmers in their contribution given in the struggle which brought final military victory. IN WITNESS THEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of Iowa to be duly affixed. Done at the Iowa State Capitol in the city of Des Moines, this eleventh day of May in the year of our Lord Nineteen Hundrey and Forty-six. (SEAL) ROBERT D. BLUE, Governor,
