10 UM*, Neb. JOMHMI Thursday, Jmw ». 1173 SALE Summer Stock Smock Coats SAVE 1/3 to 1/2 GATEWAY SHOPPING CENTER BF-A'UTlFUL BRAGG ·= A BEAUTIFUL YOU UNL Professor Gels $1,000 Award "We'll be irrigating by next Sunday," the Boss prophesied yesterday. Then he figured aloud the number of acres of corn the one six-row lay-by cultivator has to cover before then (over 400), but with Jour men who can take turns operating it. So there isn't the push there was last week, when others were occupied with haylage and fertilizing. He felt guilty then even taking time to eat. New allalfa lields which yielded such a heavy first cutting are Wuegreen now for lack of rain, lagging behind the growth of old fields which have a better root system and don't notice drouth so much. Only ripening grain fields -- so top-heavy they go down easily in a storm -- would be harmed by moisture. Pastures, corn, milo and gardens need it. No Fuel Shortage So far we ha\en't heard of fuel shortages right in our own area, but I imagine the farmers with new center- pivot systems are shaking. We drove over 100 miles Sunday through central Nebraska and saw dozens of them spraying. No need to ridge corn where they do the work But most of the land in our Platte Valley is watered by either the ditch or pumps. Three electric pumps take care of our own irrigating, so fuel shortages won't scare us too much after the corn has all been ridged. The hard work from then on is mostly manual. We have gated pipe here at home, but the rented place is irrigated by ditches and siphon tubes. The Boss will have the help ot a new pupil tor the siphon job. a great-nephew who is 15 years old. He's small and lithe, quick to learn, and enthusiastic. How 100- degree heat, the stifling corn fields, the drudgery, the mud, the gnats, etc., will affect him, we have yet to discover Rain on Order I'd rather he wasn't overworked at the start. But it the two inches the Boss has ordered miss us, there will be some weary people around come July. Jerry talked to his folks in southern California two nights ago, and learned their temperature that day had been 111. So Sunday's 105 seemed less drastic. "And your heat here is drier," he said. "Back home when it gets to even 90, you're drenched with sweat. Here you don't notice the heat as much." Well! One more good thing about our "good life here in Nebraska. It grades higher, coming from a California native! Atlantic City, N.

Off the New York -- She is happily married and has a good job, one in which she now has a growing chance of going places. She is 30 years old or edging close to it. What about a baby? If she is going to have one, she ought to do it pretty soon. But will she? And. if so, when? Some young women who fit that pattern show a certain ambivalence about having children. All have been looking long and hard at the effect a child might have on their lives. Dr. Selby Jaffee has been married nine years. She said: "Why take the risk of adding that terribly unpredictable quantity to our lives? Look at the tensions of the nuclear family today. Look at the relationships between children and parents, particularly mother and child. Don't you see a great deal of pain? At the time, I felt this, but then I thought of the joy and excitement of watching someone grow. "But I may change my mind." she added.
