Morrow general atore and destroyed it as well as an adjoining building. The Mount Pleasant fire department checked the flames and prevented serious damage to other buildings in the block.

S a f e D r i v i n g H i n t Uy Ttiivii Motor VeWelft FATIGUE TpvRIVERS who boast of the long distances they drive between ··-* aun-up and sun-down may pay tribute to their cars but they also advertise their own bad judgment. "Asleep at the wh^el" is a much more common cause of accidents than most motorists realize. Par-seeing commercial concerns employing drivers for their trucks and buses have arbitrarily set limits to the distances their operators may drive. Shuold you do less? When you feel "dead tired" or drowsy, don't drive. If you are fagged out physically, call it a day: if you are just sleepy, stop the car and run up and down the road a few times. Wash your face with cold water, drink a cup of coffee, do something --anything--to snap out of your lethargy ami don't tempt fate.

T.^«^^^^i^ ^S)[ Farmer Given Chance to Go-Operate iri FREE DELIVERY Creston Merchant Declares Agriculturist Now in Better Condition. (EDITOR'S NOTE: Tin; following articles ly a businessman und a farmer are in a series on the administration's agricultural and business recovery program). The farmer's view: By ,1. 3. VETTINGER (Creston Farmer) CRESTON. (/P)--In the administration's present agricultural program, the farmer has hia lost chance to co-operate in bringing about relief from the depression both for himaelC and for others in different fields. I believe that there will be a gen eral co-operation of farmers in the corn-hog; program now swinging into actual being. My own personal contacts lead me to believe that the majority of corn and hog producers will aid in furthering the program. Keenly Watches Developments The corn loan ^program la an attempt to bring ready cash to the farmer, cash that he needs to pay up his present bills and enable him to purchase things he has needed for a long time. If the corn-hog program is generally subscribed to and production ia actually reduced during the next year, conditions should generally "become better for the farmer in com and hog-prices. I am taking a keen interest In tue developments of the corn-hog program among the farmers themselves and I am Impressed by the number of producers who are coming daily to the Union county Farm Bureau office seeking information concern- Ing the program. Deserves Commendation. The work of the various persons in charge locally of furthering the program and bringing it to the farmers' own doors has been something to deserve commendation and praise. Since most farmers are in tho same financial condition, money derived from the program will probably be spent in erasing old bills and purchasing things needed by the farmers and their families. This should aid business generally. The businessman's view: By HOBART THOMAS (Creston Hardware company, Oreston, Iowa, und member ot the hoard of directors of the National Itcti\ll Hardware Dealers' Association) CRTSSTON. (/P--The average farmer in this section is in slightly better financial condition than he was a year ago and Indications arc that the improvement will continue. The corn loan plan is helping the grain farmer although temporarily at least it is increasing the loss sustained by the feeder who must buy. Some way must be found to bring livestock prices to parity with grain prices. Host farmers look for some improvement in livestock prices in the next 30 to 60 (lays. The corn- hog program should help materially and it will receive the support of the majority of farmers although there is some demand for a modification of some provisions. Business Gain Continues. Butter and egg prices continue low reflecting directly in the amount of money available for purchases in retail stores. But the improvement in business which started in May and June continues although the monthly gain is variable. Prices In business are firm and the general opinion is that for the present the people are talcing it for granted that-we arc on the way out althougl admitting it will be a fairly slow process. CWA money should help business during the winter months Business has fairly well adjusted itself to the NRA and ia preparing for an intensive sales campaign next spring. However, many busi nessmen need refinancing and it seems likely that the govevnmen must help with capita! loons if re covery is to be speeded. 35 ;«, 1 ££ This .compact Pbllco super- heterodyne has full, rich tone and surprising performance.
