This included our Iowa corn, soybeans, wheat, barley, and other grains. In addition, approximately one-third of .the grains used by the brewing industry, later return to the farms as protein-rich cattle feed. \ Yes, the brewing industry is an important customer of the Iowa farmer . . . and a vital element in our economic scheme of things. HELPS BUILD IOWA UNITED STATES BREWERS FOUNDATION s IOWA DIVISION 80C LIBERTY BLOC., DES MOINES "Our telephone service is the cheapest service we buy" * I look at it thU Wfly: Our telephone makes life a lot happier for me and my family. There are times when it's been a real lifesaver, too— like the day Jimmy fell down the basement stairs. • I caivcall anyone in town, and call as often as I want—2-1 hours a day, every day of the year. All I do is reach out and lift the receiver—and equipment worth thousands, maybe millions of dollars is ready to go to work for me. I don't have to buy any equipment myself, nor do I pay extra-for repairs. Sure, we pay a little more for our telephone than we used to —though the price has gone up a lot less than most other things. But $ob, ray husband, figwed out that even today our telephone actually costs us less than one cent an hour. Imagine—for all that service! That's why we think our telephone service is the cheapest service we buy. W Northwestern Bdl Telephone Company .
