The Rev. Richard Hausman, Laurens performed the double ring ceremony at Laurens Bethany Lutheran Church. Pam Baxter of Ames was organist.

The bride, escorted to the altar by her parents wore a floor length gown of delustered satin. The empire waistband, neckline and full cuffed sleeves were trimmed with satin buttons and Venice lace and seed pearls. The front and back panels of the gown were trimmed with matching Venice lace. Her lace trimmed silk illusion mantilla formed a chapel length veil. Barb Forry, Waterloo, was maid of honor. The bride's other attendants were Connie Heerde and her sister, Ann Johnson.

Jane Johansen, sister of the bridegroom registered the guests. Punch was dipped and served by Joan Stroup, Ames and coffee was poured by Mrs. Mar- Vitamin C Supplement 'It's for Your Own Good' Until today it generally hasn't been my habit to repeat a column. I only wish I could tell you today's column was the result of a "tremendous public demand.'.' It isn't, but I feel it's as mother used to say, "It's for your own good.." That old cold and flu bug has been working overtime this year across the entire country. Here at the office we have been receiving many calls regarding the effects of Vitamin C supplements JUNE STEINBORN Extension Home Economist Emmet & Dickinson Counties for the prevention or cure of colds. So — to the files for a column I wrote for you in March, 1971. No new findings from any research have been developed since this article was written. In case you missed the article or need to have the information refreshed in your mind, may I please repeat myself? "You probably get tired of my always being up on that "soap box" expounding the merits of Vitamin C (alias ascorbic acid) in our daily diets. Sorry, but I'll have to climb back up today due to a very controversial subject which concerns that very important vitamin. "First, let's have a little lesson review: Vitamin C is essential to our bodies for cementing body cells, strengthening the walls of the blood vessels, helping resist infection (prevents scurvy), and it's an acid to healing. It is a water soluble vitamin which is not stored or manufactured in our bodies so it must be replenished every day. Our daily requirement is only 70 milligrams; one small glass of orange juice for breakfast takes care of the need beautifully. Other excellent sources are tomatoes, canteloupe, strawberries, potatoes and cabbage. "Recently a book by Professor Linus Pauling (Nobel Prize winner in chemistry) stirred up a hornet's nest. He recommends very large doses of Vitamin C to prevent or relieve the sym- toms of the common cold. Drug stores were wiped out of ascorbic acid by an excited public, hopeful at last the cure for the common cold had arrived! (It reminds me of the run on safflower oil when the book "Calories Don't Count" hit the market. Everyone was going to eat all they desired — gag on safflower oil and lose pounds and pounds). May I offer you some quotes? "Nutrition News — Dec. 1970: The only difficulty with the Paul­ ing thesis is a complete lack ol proof in the form of controlled clinical studies. In fact, the best well controlled studies have produced no evidence, that any, single virus producing the common cold is inhibited by massive amounts of-Vitamin C. This in no way downgrades the importance of ascorbic acid (Vit. C) in nutrition but only in its use as an antiviral drug." "Consumer Reports, Feb. 1971 — Large doses of Vitamin C may be harmful to persons with gout, kidney or urinary problems and diabetes. It may also be risky for the elderly and for pregnant women." "Vitamin supplements should only be taken under your doctor's orders. "Iowa State Extension nutritionists recommend, "While Vitamin C is an important nutrient, there is no scientifically accurate evidence to show that large doses of it have any effect on prevention and treatment of the common cold. The vitamin may be harmful when taken in excessive doses by persons with certain health problems." "There are the facts and answers to this new theory. I'll leave it up to you to make your own decision. Wouldn't it have been wonderful if it had meant the downfall of the cold? But I'm afraid it's as they always say — 'back to the old drawing board.' " PAUL HAS requested a little space to thank all you readers for you nice comments and letters in response to "his day" as a columnist. You were most kind. As for my feelings — after such response you can just bet I won't try that again — we'll just leave well enough alone. Oh, I expected all the men's remarks — "best column you ever had, June." But when the women — with a little knowing look — say "most interesting." Then I worry! shall Compton, Curlew and Mrs. Alvin Schwen, Denison. The four-tiered wedding cake, decorated with roses and flanked by matching hearts, was cut and served by Mrs. Merle Bohn, Spirit Lake and Mrs. Carl Loeschen, Estherville. Waitresses were Mary Stenzel, Debra Compton and Jana Rouse. Mrs. Roger Grethen, Linda Myers and Macrina Currans were in charge of the gift table. The bride's personal attendant was Mrs. Larry Mein of Gruver,. Honored guests were grandparents of the bride. Mr. and Mrs. Otto Moltzehn and Delilah Johnson, Laurens. The newly weds took a wedding trip to Kansas, Kan. ..The bride was graduated from Mallard High School and Iowa Lakes-Community College, where she is now employed. The bridegroom was graduated from Estherville High School and is now a student at ILCC. They are now making their homeat 7OOV2 Central, Estherville. Club to be Organized The Estherville Mothers' Club to encourage breastfeeding will hold its first meeting 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 17 at the home of Mrs. Richard Headen, 1627 No. 6th St. Nursing mothers and expectant mothers Interested in learning more about breastfeeding are especially invited to attend. The club, which hopes to soon be certified as a La Leche League, exists to further good mothering through breastfeeding. The group encourages and supports nursing mothers through personal contact, and offers the kind of practical knowledge which once was passed down from mother to daughter. They do not offer medical advice. Monthly meetings will be based on the LaLeche League manual, "The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding." Some of the topics to be discussed are the advantages of breastfeeding, "how-to" tips, special circumstances, nutrition, and weaning. This Information is covered In a repeating series of four meetings. "Anyone desiring transportation or further information may call Mrs. Dennis Henrickson, 2-3061, or Mrs. Headen, 2-3276. Babies and pre-schoolers are welcome" stated Mrs. Headen. Mrs. Headen and Mrs. Dennis Hendrickson are the organizers of this club. They would like to add that they do not give medical advice. Most questions and problems a new nursing mother has today are not medical and they feel sure that they can be handled well on a mother- to-mother basis. Additional background: La Leche League International, which was begun 15 years ago by seven nursing mothers in the Chicago area, now has over 1200 affiliated groups both here and abroad. While the League itself does not offer medical advice, they have from the beginning placed themselves under the guidance of a Professional Advisory Board. This board of 36 M.D.'s includes those in general practice, specialists in obstetrics and pediatrics and psychiatrists. '".:':.!' Where Has All the Money Gone? By JOHN T. CUNNIFF CAP) Business Writer "You have the highest standard of living in the world." You hear the words so often they Irritate. "Who me?" you say. "Why, I can barely pay my bills. I'm poor." Perhaps you are, relative to your neighbors. But generlcal- ly, Americans are wealthy If measured In terms of their material possessions. They have one motor vehicle to serve every 2.5 persons, one telephone for every two. They are high among nations in spending for health and education, which suggests the money is available to be spent. The median income of an American family is close to $10,000 a year. In some nations, there is little money left after the essentials of food, clothing and shelter are paid for. In some, more than 50 per cent of Income is commonly spent on food alone. In the United States, less than 20 per cent of the paycheck goes for groceries and the percentage is falling, a result attributable more to rising incomes than to low prices. To buy a pound of rib roast, the Moscow resident works more than an hour, the New Yorker less than 20 minutes. For a woman's dress the Moscovite works 42 hours, the New Yorker less than six. Are conditions improving for the ordinary American? You judge. In 1911, income per person after taxes was $994; since then it has risen $1,700, averaged out for every man, woman and If you want a cream sauce for a couple one-pound cans of white onions, use three tablespoons butter, IV2 cups milk; season the sauce with salt to taste and a pinch of mace. AN IMPORTANT P.S.: Due to an unforeseen situation, the Extension "Convenience Foods" class which was scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 16, at the DEK meeting room MUST BE MOVED TO FRIDAY, FEB. 18 at 1:30 p.m. in the DEK meeting room.

T. could add a new length of %-inch elastic to the waistbands of her husband's shorts. Stitch to the elastic already on them as that is quicker than ripping off the stretched-out band. Stretch both the old and the new out fully and stitch the new on the old by machine as you stretch. The new band will draw up the old with it and careful stitching will give a flat job with no bulkiness, all in quick time.—TESSIE DEAR POLLY—My answer to Mrs. J. H. TVs stretched elastic problem is to never stretch elastic when it is wet. Hang all elastic-topped articles upside down to dry. I have been washing men's shorts for more than 20 years for my husband and three sons and always have worn-out shorts with still good elastic that can be used on pajamas and the like.—MRS. L. E. C. Polly's Problem \ , /--v.x^r^x. DEAR POLLY—I hope someone can tell me how to m * wash a raincoat that is stained with newsprint. Dry s ; cleaning did not remove it.—C. B. DEAR POLLY—My Pet Peeve is with parents and organizations who send children out to sell tickets without instructions about overlapping territories or how to approach people when wanting to make a sale. Within five minutes two groups rang my doorbell and with the same approach: "Would you like to buy a ticket to ?" One little girl came, saying, "Would you like some candy?" and 1 did not know if she was selling it or giving it away, whether or not it was store bought or homemade nor what she was selling it for.—A. B. C. DEAR POLLY—Recently our church installed new carpeting and there were many small scraps left. One of our members suggested cutting these into strips to fit in the bottom of the hymn book racks. Now the loud clunking of hymn books being returned to their racks is muffled. Naturally, if I get a Polly Dollar it will go to our church.—MRS. C. M. (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.)

For at least three major reasons: inflation, taxes and the style of living. Inflation is a termite, working behind the scenes and observable mainly by its results, which are devastating. Between 1955 and 1970 more than 30 cents was eaten from the dollar's buying power. Inflation is the economy's way of taxing for excess. Although unofficial, unannounced and unacceptable, it is just as prevalent as a legislated tax. Official taxes have taken their share too. In the years 19561970 the total of federal, state and local taxes rose from $2,045 per household to $4,353, according to the Tax Foundation. Wring out inflation, and the comparable figure is still more than $3,000. Observant people often clearly see the impact of inflation and taxes. But, being immersed in the activities of modern life, some of us fail to observe that the maintenance of the American way of life is expensive. American society is acquisitive. It is one of possessions, of competition and of change that generally is called progress. We are forever seeking new levels. Our appetites are never satisfied. Take note of your own situation: Before you reach one economic level you have planned your assault on the next, Even if the means aren't there the dream is: two cars, a bigger house, a boat, a vacation home. Sometimes the desire for the better Qs it?) life is less noticeable, imvolving almost imperceptible changes in diet, goals, standards, habits, fashions. In 1920, Americans consumed on average 165 pounds of potatoes and 136 pounds of meat. Fifty years later, potato consumption was down to 100 pounds, meat up to 185 pounds. And better meats they were, too. Similarly, we choose to drive on tollways instead of on freeways, send youngsters to private rather than public schools. We live in a high pressure society. New images are placed before us by advertising. Desires are aroused. Competition, even with neighbors, is subtly encouraged. Ambition is acclaimed, success admired. And easy credit pays the way„ There is nothing sinister about activity designed to entice you into buying. But if you remain Personal Mention Browns Have Florida Address unaware of the commercial world's methods you cannot deal with it on an equal basis. The person who remains unaware, who doesn't set his own goals and standards, loses his options by default. He will be buffeted about. Instead of pursuing a straight course, he will frantically react to a million stimuli directed his way.
