His ban included girls' sheer blouses, blue jeans .held up by rope, belt-less pants, zoot-suits and "ducktail" haircuts on boys. "They shouldn't tell us how to dress," several students said.

ACTRESS DIES NEW YORK OR--Actress Bette rayson, 32 former wife of play- Farmers Told to Gut Costs Panef Discussion Here Tuesday Norlh Iowa farmers were tok Tuesday that they would have t( get along with from 75 to 80 pe cent of parity. The prediction cam from both Henry A. Wallace, foi mer vice president, and from mem bers of a five man panel. A number of farmers reacted bj asking if prices of machinery, fer tilizer and other farm costs would take a corresponding drop. Although that question was never answered completely during the panel discussion, a number of other answers were given. Held at Holy Family Auditorium, the Farn Forum was sponsored by Mason City's United Home Bank anc Trust Company. First to speak on the afternoon panel was Ernest Baughman, econ omist for the Federal Reserve Bank, Chicago. Panel member had been assigned the topic. "Hoy. to Deal With Increased Costs at a Time of Fluctuating Incomes." 'Meat Ax Cuts The Chicago economist urged farmers not to c u t costs in the wrong areas. Don't," he said, "use the mea ax approach, slashing all costs without serious thought to the fu ture o f y o u r farming program Don't cut your applications of fer tilizers, but rather put off buying new farm machines and erectinj new buildings." A Sheffield farmer, William Eno suggested that farmers give thci financial position careful thought Farmers, he said, should know jus where they stand in these days o high costs and uncertain income. The estimated 650 farmers hearc next from Don Fish, a farmer from the Mayuard area. Fish hit hard against too manj installment payments. He toll farmers that buying a television set on time payments takes th place of two brood sows. A veteran farm m a n a g e r , Car Hertz, Nevada, dealt with the prob Icm of the tenant farmer with a landlord who refuses to take the iong view and wants only to milk the land of the last immediate cash ·eturn. Tenant's Position Hertz said a tenant in that posi Jon can only hope to persuade the and owner that it is to his own interest to make badly needed improvements and use plenty of fer- ilizer.. , "Bank credit may sometimes be lard to get," said the lone banker on the panel, "but it is the easiest to pay back." That was the opin ion of a Ne%v Hampton banker, J F. Kennedy, the fifth member of the discussion group. Kennedy also warned agains' getting involved with too m a n y in stallment payments and cited the example of one farmer who was dismayed to learn that he had 19 charge accounts on which he owec over $3,000. Presiding at the afternoon pane discussion, which was thrown open to questions from the floor, wa; W. C. Murray, head of the depart ment of econpmics and sociology Iowa State College. At the c l o s e of the meeting United Home's Kermit Hansen saic the bank hopes to h o l d another day after a brief illness. Happy is The Day When Backache Goes Away . . . .
