Out in Los Angeles' in 'the last ten years the city has nioved out into adjoining farm land with an area as large as Grundy county. This area is now covered with homes for a quarter of a million pbople. Where farmers formerly harvested crops' ot garden truck, they are now raising babies. Thirty miles from the heart of the Chicago loop there was an 80 acre farm where last year farm crops' were grown on the entire tract. In November of last year a development company ' took Uu's farm over and promptly planned for 254 homes with streets and Water and sewer facilities. At this time many of these homes are finished and occupied and others will be finished by the close of the year, providing living quarters for 1000 people. In that area where they formerly raised corn and soybeans, they will now be raising a ctop of babies each year. These new homes are being sold on the installment payment plan. The installments are only a!; little more than the monthly rental would be, within a period of 10 to 20 years the homes I be paid for. , Development companies in the larger cities have been finding it profitable to go into house building on a large scale:'In-a much more limited Way there have been similar investments made in smaller towns and these have been turning out well. Most townsyn Iowa have need for such development and-there will be a market for the new homes if they can be sold on low down payments. In Rcinbeck small blocks of new homes have been built the past few years and the builder found a ready market for them. Such a project is now under way in the Nuis addition to Grundy Center.

Indianola Tribune — The Administrations "anti-farmer" approach apparently develops from the philosophy of top officials in-the Department of Agriculture. Couple that philosophy with a poor memory as to campaign promises, and there you have it — the explanation of this dismal failure to meet the farm issue. • Do you remember those campaign promises? In the campaign of 1952 the Republican candidate for President said at Kasson, Minnesota: "And here, and now, without any ifs or'buts, I say to you that I can stand behind—and the Republican Party stands behind—the price-support laws now on the books." ; Then, at Brookings, South Dakota, he said: "The Republican Party is pledged to the sustaining of 90 percent parity price support, and it is pledged even more, than . that to helping the farmer obtain his full parity, 100 parity, with the guaranty in the price supports of 90." "Then we are accused of wanting to abolish the farm program and the price' ' support. Well, some things are so false you don't know the right words to use, at least in polite society, for condemning them. I went to Kasson: and on behalf of Republican leaders, and with the concurrence of the great men of the party, at least all that could be reached in time, I stated exactly what we meant to do, and the present 90 percent parity price in the farm program was sustained and supported completely." As against that, last April the Department of Agriculture stated, "It would be better if the marginal farmer got out of fanning and into industry and his land were turned over to grass or trees, or other soil conservation practices." . '. . How can one reconcile this position with a recent statement from the Assistant Secretary of Labor that the flow of farm workers into cities must be slowed down. i « • « TWO DIFFERENT ECONOMIES . . . Eagle Grove Eagle — We have often wondered what would happen if the people out in the country suddenly decided to out their work week and production record on the same basis as our city cousins? Neither have we been able to understand why people in small towns should have to work 48 to 54 hours a week to make a living when our city cousins are doing it in 40 hours? * * * ACCIDENTS AND CHILDREN Swea City Herald — Accidents, one of the major causes of deaths today, are specially hard on children. Accidents take the greatest toll in the age brackets of from birth to 5 years of age _ and of those- over 65. Every year accidents permanently cripple 48.000 children in this country. * 4 C ~ CHANGE SUGGESTED Decorah Journal — The Republican party has had complete control of our state government since _ 1938. A chanye after 16 years will help, certainly j won't hurt, so let us give the people of Iowa a change by the election of Democratic candidates next November. V * * EXCESS TABLE SALT HARMFUL TO HEALTH Albert Lea Tribune — Some of our more timic citizens oppote adding fluorides for duinking water on grounds it might be harmful to human health. Fluorides are lirst cousins to table salt. Used in big doses, fluorides are- harmful. So is salt. FROM THE FILES OF THE ALGONA UPPER DES MOINES MAY 24, 1934 * *-•»•'. John Dorweiler of West Bend bought a new' Pontiac eight. He parked the car / in front of his home west of the West Bend,"but when he cairte out to get in it, the car had disappeared. He glanced toward the lake, and knew immediately what had happened, as he could see about three inches of the top of the auto above the water.

Early Sunday morning a gixmpTbf Algonans were "enjoying a cup of coffee in a local restaurant. It was noted a moon- eyed man and woman were sitt- ng not far away, and eventually Teetings were exchanged. It vi'as learned that the. pair had been trying to get married all the way ^rom Mason City to Spencer" and couldn't find anyone o do the job. Noting that both sarties were far above the legal jge the Algonans got in gear, Alma Pearson, then deputy clerk of court, was called, and she came down and filled out the license at 1:15 a.m. Then a call went to Justice Paul Danson, and he responded, sleepy-eyed, and in the, presence of 20 Algonans, with the night marshal acting as usher, the marriage was performed in a local store. The clincher to the whole story was the fact that the pair had been going steady for 17 years, and decided it was time to do something about it. Georgia Wicker, 12. Swea City suffered painful injuries when thrown from a horse. She was going after the mail, when the horse jumped off the grade and threw the girl into a barbed wire fence. She suffered numerou.- deep cuts, bu'^ was rushed to a doctor by a neighbor, O. E. Simmons, who had witnessed the accident. Stars v/ho lake their acting seriously will frequently pass up an excellent movie role to play a stage character they've "always wanted to do." Barry Sullivan is the latest star to be wooed away from waiting cameras by the lure of a coveted stage.role. Just when producer Lindsley Parsons thought .he had. Barry all set for "Massacre At Dragoon Wells," on the Allied Artiste lot, along came a bid for Barry from the footlights. It was an opportunity to replace Henry Fonda in "The Caine Mutiny Court Martial." '.'„-• However, Mr , Parsons, one of Hollywood's best liked producers, wished Barry well and arranged to recast his part in ."Massacre at Dragoon Wells." Barry will star later in another Parsons film during the 1955 season. Now that Marilyn Monroe and 20th-Fox have patched up their differences, and' signed a new seven-year treaty of peace Marilyn gets busy on "There s No Business Like Show Business." This ends the suspension 6f- January 26th, resulting fron Miss Monroe's refusal to repor for the "Pink Tights" film. {This article, prepared the public interest by The Iowa State Bar Association, is intended to inform and not to advises facts may change the application of the law).

Of the total, 92? was used by farmers to refmanc their indebtedness in payment to banks, insurance companies, taxes, merchants and other creditors The balance went for the purchase of land and equipment and the purchase of stock in the national farm loan association. The largest amount, $blK»,auu went to insurance companies. John Doughan, Jack Streit and Bill Barry, Jr. went to the show at the Call Theater on bank night The three boys jokingly talked about the drawing for $100 to be held that night, and a deal was made whereby if one of the three got the money, he was to give each of the others $10. Johns name was drawn for the money, and he ended with §80 afte<: paying off the other two. Two teams, the Algona Upper Des Moines and Skelly Oil, were locked in a first place tie at-the top of the kittenball league standings. The UDM's only lofeS in three games came as a result of a forfeit to the Skelly team, due to the fact all the players couldn't be found on the night of the game.
