THE MEAT-TYPE HOG WILL BE THE CENTER of ATTENTION AT THE 1956 MINNESOTA STATE SPRING BARROW SHOW TO BE HELD FEB. 23, 24, 25-1956-ALBERT LEA, MINN. (Barrow Show News Release) The meat-type hog from "Production to Consumption" highlights the Swine Producers Clinic at the 1956 Minnesota State Spring Barrow Show. The clinic will be held in the Judging Arena at the Freeborn Co. Fair Grounds in Albert Lea February 23, 24 and 25. The clinic exhibit is under the auspices of the Albert Lea Junior Chamber of Commerce. • * A display to emphasize the production side of the meat hog is being presented by the Mitchell County (Iowa) Swine Improvement Association. This will feature marketing hogs at proper weights, equalizing farrowings throughout the year, how and why farmers should shift to meat hogs. THEY WILL ALSO ENCOURAGE FARMERS TO SELL THEIR HOGS-AT A MARKET THAT PAYS FOR QUALITY. There will be a demonstration by an action display, of the new live-grade basis of purchasing hogs that pays for Duality. This will fefaure pens of different grade hogs and the comparative prices paid for each group.' To assist exhibitors and spectators in learning the type of carcasses produced by different types of live hogs, a new and different match-the-carcass contest has been arranged. A colored movie of the live hogs will run continuously and entrants in the contest will endeavor to match the carcasses on display with the proper live hog. The consumption side of the exhibit will be featured in a display presented by the Minnesota Pork Committee. They will explain what has been done this past fall to promote pork consumption and what farmers, processors and retailers can do to further pork consumption.

Regularly we have 11 holidays within the 365 days of the year but this time we have two more because on account of the regular holiday falls on a Sunday and so it is moved up one day. For instance the 1st of January falling on a Sunday the holiday was moved up to Monday. And in February Lincoln's birthday falling on a Sunday is ,moved up to Monday, February 13. Washington's birthday, the other February holiday, fell on Wednesday, the 22nd of Feb. In March there are no Holidays whatever. When I say holidays I mean a day other than a Sunday, of course. April has one holiday, the 1st, April Fool's Day. May has the one holiday known as Decoration Day, the 30th. June has no holidays whatever either, unless I should call the 21st a holiday because on account of that's my birthday, the middle of the year and the longest day in the year. —o— July comes next with only oni holiday, the 4th, an especially noisy and firecracker day. But that's all in July. Not one of the 31 days in August can be declared a holiday. And of the 30 days in September there falls but one holiday, known as Labor Day. And that doesn't mean you work any harder on that day because on account of it is a day selected by organized workers as one day of celebration for their cause, so to speak. There is but one holiday in October, the 12th, known as Columbus Day, in 34 states in the union, but that does not include Iowa so we don't celebrate that day. November brings us two holidays, the 6th b.eing general election day and so can be celebrated by republicans, democrats and socialists alike as they cast their vote, so to speak. The second November holiday is Thanksgiving Day which this -year falls on the 22nd. Up to the past fevryears Armis- tice day was one of celebration in all the states but for some unknown reason that day Is losing in popularity. I sure don't know why. And then comes December with the one holiday, generally obsherved by the world at largo and that is Christmas. Yes, there you have a line-up of the holidays we celebrate in Iowa and the United States, so to speak. —o— Probably the three words used the most within'the past week were "Happy New Year." Surely they were expressed by you, by him, by her, by them aplenty during the past week. I know this—"Happy New Year" were three well meant words expressed by all of us. At any rate I heard many, many, well wishing expressions from friends. There was Bill Dau with "Happy New Year and I hope you stay happy the year through." And Joe Greenberg with "Happy New Year and I hope you look as happy as you feel." And Ken Strahorn with "May the New Year be filled with your happiest happiness." And Werner Stru- ecker with "May the New Year be as happy to me as I wish It happy for you." And Dick Sorensen with "Here's wishing another Dane as happy a new year as the Danes can take." And Fred Schultz with "If the New Year can be as happy for you as it in for me then I sure wish it." And Chas. Fox with "If the New Year can be as happy for you as it is for me then I'll be doubly happy." Mel Griffin said "I don't need to wish you a Happy New Year because -on account of I see you're just right happy now." And Harold Lampright handed me this "Of all the happy seasons for you to experience it's my wish that a Happy New Year tops them all" —o— And Beecher Lane met me with "There can't be any happier season than the Happy New Year and I'm sure wishing it for you." Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst met me with "Happy New Year and I hope it continues with a good record for you and I won't have to call on you." Wade Sullivan offered this "Happy New Year Mr. Democrat (and which I am) and hope the year remains within the democratic angle for you as always." And Jim Pool, with a cup of coffee in his hand, wished me a Happy New Year with a continuence of my love for coffee gulping. And Chris Wallu- kait sprung this: "We coffee- loving Danes wish you a Happy , New Year aftd a continued love : for the gulping along with the rest of we Danes." • "I wish for Organize New County 4-H Junior Leadership Group With the objective in mind of better meeting the needs and wants of older 4-H club members, a special organization meeting was held December 27 to organize a Kossuth County Junior Leadership program. Two older members from each boys' and girls' club in the county, plus the 4-H girls' and boys' county officers were invited to you the happiest of happy new years" came from Ted Vera and I'm sure he meant it. "There's nothing more happy than a Happy New Year, and I sure hope and wish you are experiencing it," was sprung on me by Bless Rusk. And Frank Zender wished for me a Happy New Year with tops of all former happy new years. Yes, I was wished a Happy New Year by most everybody I met the past few days and I sure appreciate their interest in my well-being and the happiness I may enjoy throughout the coming year of 1956. Thanks a lot boys. WESLEY NEWS Mr and Mrs George Goetz and Mr and Mrs 'George Ricke went to Williams Monday to visit Mr and Mrs Lawrence Ricke and family.'
