Local appliance dealers and plumbers can give you full facts on an electric water heater, its economy, and its fully automatic features. Another electric item that helps to bring happy home living!

(gain I'm sure proud of being'a Dane because on account of a Panish girl, Caroline Pedersen of Ledyard, was honored last week by being named to the Fourth Iowa Daily Press Association All-State basketball team. She is the daughter of Mr and Mrs Soren Pedcrsen of Ledyard and I take it for granted that the Pedersens are Danish because on account of the spelling of the name. I know that Soren is a Danish given name. I have a brother, Soien, a Cousin Soren and uncle, Soren, anq they're sure Danes, still breathing and eating in Denmark. So I believe I'm right in judging the Peder- sens being as Dane as J an). And I'm sure happy over the honor extended Caroline and it just go'es to show that we Danes can also get places, so to speak.

And the two major parties, republican and democratic, are really getting into tWs game from now on. And as usual there is going to be plenty of activity, politically, by members of both parties. Just how and which party is going to tajte over in this neighborhood is now the, mind-ridden political thought. Yep, both ,parties seem to reel that they going to take over and the political angle.will be a prominent one from now on until election day in jffovernber.
