National Small Business Week President Richard M. Nixon has declared the week of May 19-25, 1974 to be National Small Business Week, a week in which "as Americans we take justifiable pride in our private enterprise system which has produced more wealth, more widely shared, than any other economic arrangement known to history. Joining President Nixon in proclaiming the week nationally, are Governor Robert D. Ray who is issuing a proclamation for the state of Iowa, and Mayor William S. Farner issuing a proclamation for the city of Carroll.

Realizing that 95 per cent of all businesses are small, the health and well being of small business assures the health and vitality of the entire economy. WHEREAS, if small business is to fully realize its potential in the years ahead, it needs and deserves wholehearted support from lowans and more particularly the entire business community, as well as the positive encouragement it already receives from the government. NOW THEREFORE, I, William S. Farner, Mayor of the City of Carroll, do hereby designate the week beginning May 19-25, 1974, as Small Business Week, I ask all Citizens to share with me during this week a deep pride in the many accomplishments of our City's small businessmen and women, and in the invaluable contribution they have made to our free way of life.

Farner Mayor Council Accepts Bid for Lighting LAKE CITY - The city council here accepted the low big of Wyatt Osburn, Lake City, of $6,187.30 for new lighting of the swimming pool and tennis courts during a meeting May 6. Landfill hours on Sunday were shortened from noon — 8 p.m. to noon — 5 p.m. The council also approved becoming a part of the North Iowa Crime Commission. Upon request of residents of North Woodlawn Avenue for more protection for their children from speedsters, the placing of more "Watch for Children" signs and insistence on stricter adherence to the speed laws was approved. They approved investigating missing street signs. Building permits were granted to Don Higgins, Ray Lilly, Leonard Hardy and Robert Seaberg. They approved granting Lohrville's request for participation in Lake City's summer recreation program. A request for re-zoning was granted so that Roger Green Small wonder America's No.l selling compacts come from Plymouth. Plymouth Duster Duster—sticker- priced less than VW Super Beetle, Toyota Corona, Datsun 610, Mazda RX-3, and Mustang II. It's true! Plymouth Duster carries a lower sticker price than all of those other economy cars. But Duster offers a lot more. Read on! You'll see. In recent USAC tests, Duster's Slant 6 got better gas mileage on the open road than the Nova and Maverick 6. And in city driving, even got slightly better mileage than the 4-cylinder Mustang II. •The tests were sanctioned and results certified by the U.S. Auto Club. All of which proves that Duster's an economy car superstar. Duster seats 5, not 4. Easy small-car parking and handling. Some small cars only seat 4 people. But our Duster carries 5. A trunk larger than Pinto and Vega combined. Duster not only gives you room inside. It gives you room out back, too. Over 19 cubic feet of trunk space ... comparable to many larger cars. Electronic ignition standard. Virtually eliminates costly ignition tune-ups. Duster doesn't forget that it's a compact, offering small-car maneuverability. It's big inside, but small outside. NO.I In '73 Plymouth took over the lead in compact car sales— and still is No. 1. With so much going for them, small wonder that America's No. 1 selling compacts come from Plymouth ... and that's the way we mean to keep it. Come in and let us show you what we mean.

At congregational meetings running concurrently Sunday night May 5, Lake City Methodists and Presbyterians voted to merge into a Union Church effective Sept. 1, 1974. The new church will be subject to the constitutions of both the United Methodist and United Presbyterian denominations. The two congregations have been operating for some time in a yoked arrangement. The name of the new congregation has not yet been chosen, but will be named by the congregation soon. The present pastor is the Rev. Stewart Congdon. ByGavnorMaddox .(NKA Writer There is a word that fits springtime particularly well. It is "symbiosis." meaning living together in intimate association or even close union of two dissimilar organisms. Dr. John P. Mahlstede, horticulturist, co-author of "Plant Propagation," and honored for outstanding research, believes that today the symbiosis of plants and man is necessary to escape the bewilderment resulting from our undisciplined technology. This scientist, who is professor of horticulture and associate director of the Iowa Agriculture and Home Economics Experiment Station of Iowa State University, is convinced that one way man can achieve a sense of unity at a time when society, technology and environment seem fragmented is through identification with a complete process. "The specialization inherent in so much of our society and economy seems to form a barrier that prevents us from pursuing a project from its gestation or first beginning to its completion. In a sense, we BAND IN FESTIVAL The Carroll Community School will perform in Orange City's Tulip Time festival on May 17. Festival activities begin at 1 p.m. on May 16. 17 and 18. The program consists of the Dutch street scrubbing, parade of floats and marching bands, coronation ceremonies, Dutch street dancing, and other attractions. The musical, "The Music Man", will be presented each evening. tijihU-n a boh and fail to sec the developing product until it is ready for sale in a show room," he says. "The therapy of relating to the whole cycle of nature, as when we plant a seed and nurture it, watch it grow and come to fruition, provides a psychic award and a sense of fulfillment." In the beginning, man was primarily a gatherer. Actually, his very existence depended upon his understanding of the sources of plant food-seeds, roots, honey, herbs, tubers and grubs. He had to know where and when they grew and how to store them. Later he hunted and then raised animals. But animals too, were dependent on plant life. "This has been a long and fulfilling symbiosis of plants and man. Now it is upon man's stewardship of the green environment that the existence of the planet, the quality of life, the oxygen we breathe, depend. He believes that for many city-bred and city-oriented people, the countryside has narrowed down to plantings along the interstate highway, a murky sky filtered with jet exhausts, or crowded picnic areas where nature is tolerated rather than cherished. He fears people cannot see signs in these manifestations of any serious symbiosis between man and nature. "But don't misunderstand me. I do not advocate a renunciation of technology. Nor a return to nature divorced from man's scientific efforts. "Our challenge is to develop a society that recognizes the benefits of an intimate partnership among plants, people and the physical environment. A symbiosis, let's say, that gives full value to vegetable gardens, small fruit trees, landscape plantings, an arboretum and a green lawn. This evaluation also should involve consideration of the conservation of energy afforded by a canopy of foliage or a windbreak, plants as pollution sinks, and the use of plantings as visually appealing noise barriers. "But these attitudes," he emphasizes, "will become accepted and common only if people like ourselves work cooperatively to educate the public to influence policy at the decision-making level. Symbiosis is one hopeful idea for today's troubled man." TEEN LINE An additional private line ends frayed tempers, missed calls.
