t-AI§ona (la.) Upper De* Moine* Tuesday, March 6, 1956 Ravings CHftIS BttSt A tllll* et Thl«, a Llttlt 61 fh*i: Not Much ol Anythinf Yep, the Stale Safety Comis- sion has decided that there will be another year's service for your car license plate and for 1957 there will be attached to your plates a small aluminum tag which will indicate that your car license has been taken care of, so to speak. According to the Commission an additional $107,500 will have to be appropriated to provide the 1957 plates and that is a lot of money. So. when you get ready to buy license plates for next year your dollars and dollars will only get you a small aluminum tag to attach to your plates, so to speak. Hence you can figufe on the small tag being attached to your plates, but the cost won't be reduced, you'll dig up the usual annual car license, so to speak. Yet, U was Wednesday, the 29th of February, an additional day added to the year's 365 days every four years. And to the folks who happen to have a birthday on the 29th of February there was the fourth annual \celebration, so to speak. I have a nephew, George Reese, of Spokane, who celebrates his birthday once every four years and if his birthdays mean his age he is now only 5 years of age though h£ has existed twenty years, since 1936. So it is that on the 29th of February, the fourth and leap year, birthday celebrations are the more extensive and deeply celebrated, so to speak. Why wouldn't it be a good idea to pick the 29th' of February as an installation day for .the president and the nigh offices, make" them a sort of 4th of July proposition in the ramble of big days or tip- top holidays? Here's one on congress. One North Dakota congressman complained recently that the restaurants charge a nickel extra for bread with meals. And one restaurant manager explains that free bread would mean a deficit because on account of when bread was free some congressmen used to fill up on it, buying nothing but a cup of coffee. Won-' dor how the tall corn growing state congressmen react to this— do they expect free bread alonp with a nickel cup of coffee? Guess I was all wrong when I predicted last week that we were going to have a small blizzard the last week in February and Ken Strahorn tells me I had no business making forecasts because on account of I never forecast rightly anyhow. And Phi) Kohlhaa's tells me that I shouldn't ever make forecasts because on account of my forecasting is- never to be depended upon. And Wade Sullivan tells me that J should never make weather forecasts but should confine them entirely to democratic forecasts. And maybe he's got something there. So this year I propose to do some democratic forecasting later on and maybe I'll really prove good at democratic line- upping, so to speak. However, I did forecast that President Eisenhower was coming out again for re-election to the presidency and in this I was right because on account of he has "come out" so to speak. But again, I repe_at, I'm not going to vote for him and again, maybe he'll tell me he didn't need my vote. But somehow from what I have been told and what I hear there seems s possibility that there will be a lot more democratic votes this year and it might have some effect on the president's candidacy, so to speak. However, we'll hear more about that between now and the November election. It was the other day that I done a lot of quizzing among gents as to how they like spring or do they like it better than WELCOME! BUFFALO BOOSTERS Left fa right. .Back row: Betty Haiten.

IOWA AMEBICAN GEM SOCIETY hot summer or cold winter and I found that to many gents spring is the bestest offbeat seasons, so to speak. It.was Heinic Stebritz who told me that he was always the happiest when spring had sprung or spring had sprang because on account of he didn't love blizzards nor was he particularly fond of the hotter summer angle. And Gene Hood claims that the spring time in the year suits him the utmost because on account of the weathei is not too hot and it's not too cold. Oliver Carlson claims that there should be no other season except spring because on account ol it brings to folks that satisfied and joyful feeling that zero and snow shoveling qre goners from no\v on. And Charles Paxson told me the other day that it would suit him swell if there was no other season except spring, no) too cold, not too hot, just right for honestly comfortable temperatures, and he's got something there. Yep, spring is i dandy and good season, according to most people, especial Ij those who can't line up with zer< or 102 in the shade, so to speak North Kossuth Couple Observe 40 Years Wed Swea 8c Eagle—Mr and Mrs William Brock where honored on their 40th wedding anniversary at their farm home in Swea Township with open house afternoon and evening.

CcT YOURS TODAY • OFFE* GOOD WHILE SUPPLY iASTf KOHLHAAS HARDWARE Ed and Pat Cullen OUR OWN HARDWARE At Home... Among Strangers ! You're going to get a wonderful thrill when you take the wheel of your first Cadillac and head out into the country—a long, long way from home. We're not just talking about the car's wonderful performance and its extraordinary riding and handling ease—satisfying and inspiring though these are bound to be. No, we're talking about something more. ' We're talking about the friendliness you're going to encounter—how you'll be driving among people who seem to know something about you, and who are ready to trust and respect you as if they had known you for a long, long time. . This is true, of course, because Cadillac quality and goodness have made it the overwhelming preference of people of judgment and discrimination—and the whole world has come to know and understand this and to appreciate what it means. Yes, your best foot is forward when it rests on the throttle of a 1956 Cadillac. This great personal benefit is strictly a plus value when you take the title of the "car of cars." It comes in addition to the long-known Cadillac virtues: matchless beauty and luxury and comfort, and safety and long life. Why not consider a Cadillac for your next car? It is a logical choice—not only for quality and goodness and prestige—but for economy of ownership and operation as well. We suggest that you come in soon and see for yourself. We'll be happy to give you a personal demonstration at the wheel . . . and to explain why this is such a wonderful time to make the move'from every standpoint. Ernie Williams Pontiac-Cadillac W.
