Presbyterian Sunday Service On Television The 10:30 a.m. weekly worship service of the First Presbyterian Church of Estherville, is being televised each Sunday over ti.e Estherville, Cable Company channel 11. This telecast is made possible through the purchase by the Presbyterian Church of the necessary television equipment, which will also be used in the educational program of the church. This television broadcast will not affect the broadcast of that same service each week over KILR Radio, which will continue as usual. The First Presbyterian Church of Estherville is the first in Iowa to broadcast its weekly services over cable TV according to a spokesman from the Concord Communications Systems of Iowa. All residents of Estherville who are hooked up to the Cable will be able to view these services each week in their homes. Iowa Given 363,000 More Grain Acres DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Dale Awtry, executive director of the Iowa Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service (ASCS), says Iowa has been al- loted an additional 363,000 acres of feed grain base. Under new rules in the government's Feed Grain Program, a farmer must plant 45 per cent of the land normally planted to feed grain to preserve his historic right to that feed grain "base." If he failed to do so, the farmer lost the base and his share was put into a national feed grain base pool. Awtry said Wednesday it was from that pool that Iowa farmers received the additional base. Iowa received the additional base acreage, he explained, because of the failure of farmers elsewhere to comply with the federal planting rules, by farmers who retired and by farms being taken out of production. The additional base acreage puts Iowa's base at 13,811,020, Awtry reported.

Area Calendar SUPERIOR Road vehicles purchased in Estherville and converted to rail application in Fairmont will be roaming the western part of the United States this year, traveling the Union Pacific tracks. Just before the first of the year, Miner Motors of Estherville delivered seven Jeep vehicles to Fairmont Railway Motors to be made into that company's "Hy-Rails." The four wheel drive features make these vehicles desirable for use in rough mountain country. The program is not altogether new for either company. Miner has been furnishing the Fairmont industry vehicles for 20 years. Fairmont Railway Motors, after years of developing and testing, shipped the first Hy-Rail unit in July, 1949, to the Louisville and Nashville Railroad. This was a Willys-Overland Jeep truck chassis with a Fairmont built body and equipped with Fairmont hydraulically operated rail guide wheels. The application of the rail guide wheels made it possible for the unit to be used on both highway and railway by simple operation of controls located In the operator's cab. Soon to follow was the application of Hy-Rail equipment to the Jeep station wagon. A new Hy-Rail unit was added in 1955 with the application of Hy-Rail equipment to a 1954 Pontiac Station Wagon. This vehicle was deemed popular with supervisory personnel and inspection parties because of the versatility of the vehicle being able to use both the railway and-or highway as necessary. Guide wheels were raised and lowered hydraulically with controls easily accessible to the vehicle operator. In 1959 Pontiac was the first of the automotive industry to go "wide track." On the new models, the wheel tread center line to center line dimension exceeded the 59V2" required for operating on standard 56V2" gauge track. This prohibited its continued use, making it necessary to look to other vehicles for Hy-Rail use. Estherville Wagons Rev Up for Delivery Trip A new Hy-Rail group had been developed that was raised and lowered manually. This manually operated group was first applied to a 1959 Chevrolet station wagon. The manually operated units were more economical than the hydraulic and became more popular, resulting in discontinuing the hydraulic units in 1960. A standard, or universal Hy- Rail group was developed in I960, and was designed to be applicable to several models of vehicles with a minimum of variable parts. As the Hy-Rail groups were being developed for passenger vehicle's, they also were being applied to trucks of all sizes. These included pick-up trucks for the track forces on up through large tractor trailer trucks for specific jobs, and application to mobile crane carriers. Fairmont Hy-Rails have played a prominent part in many news- making events, even nation wide television. Two Fairmont Hy- Rails were used in a television commercial filmed on the Santa Fe Railway. The film was produced for the Shell Oil Co. Hy- Rails have been used during floods when it was impossible to use other vehicles for track inspection. They also have been used ahead of trains to make sure the track was clear of debris that might cause a derailment. Considerable favorable newspaper, television and magazine publicity resulted from the application of Hy-Rail equipment to a GMC bus similar to those used by Greyhound Bus Lines. The experimental unit was demonstrated in suburban service in Philadelphia, Pa., in October, 1967, and later in Atlanta, Ga„ and the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. The concept of using a Hy- Rail bus for passenger service is still an integral part of many metropolitan centers rapid transit studies.
