If you have it v it controlled and the patient/can lead an otherwise hot? inal life but he never really ^ over it. Sometimes the fishing germ is contagious; it's passed from hand-to-hand and mouth'to" mouth when victims, brag about their piscatorial prowess to noh- sufferers. The tendency to fishing can be inherited from father to son-to grandson like the blood disease that used to plague th^ royal houses • of Europe. And other authorities believe that the malady is entirely environmental since the most pronounced addicts tend to 'inhabit • regioris within a day's drive of a stream, lake or ocean.. But it really does not matter too much how your; guy caught the urge to fish, or even how to cure him, the trick is ;o learn to recognize it early and .o figure out ways to cope with It was already loo late when 1 married Father for he's been fishing since he was out of diapers Before that he used to go along on fishing trips, in his bassinette. The men of his family are all fishermen. They cut their teeth on fish hooks and they totter down to the river with a fish pole on the day before they take to their beds with their last illness. The Heaven they aspire ' j_ne Heaven they aspire to doesn't have marble palaces and gold pave'd streets. It's got rivers and lakes and ponds and oceans all filled with pike, bass and trout and every fish is twice as long as the ones that gbt away from them here on earth. So you can see 1 have quite a bit of ,'esearch material on the ways of fishermen and for advice on the problems of a fisherman's wife [ can consult my mother-in-law who, in turn, learned it from her mother-in-law. We plan to pool >ur information arid give it to Bill's wife when he marries because he's also a fisherman. -,. „ . . , The very first rule for a fisher- I everybody gets man's wife is to always make him clean his own catch. If, 01 your honeymoon, he catches one measly little bullhead don't give in and clean it for him because, you have Stardust in your eyes If you know how to gut a wall eye or steak a Northern, keep i, a deep, dark secret. Do it once and you'll always have the mcssj job of fish cleaning on youi hands. If he says he's tired' remember they are always tired when they come home from fishing and he may flatter you that you do a nice job of cleaning fish. Don't listen to him. Don't try to reform a con firmed fisherman. It's useless. Learn to enjoy fishing yourself if you can, and if not go along anyway for the outing. If your particular hobby is knitting, take along your yarn and needles, if t's reading, pack a pile of books. ff you have children, they can I run along the shore of a lake just well as they can at homo and a picnic lunch LUCKY NUMBERS!

But, it Seems to me, no mailer how good a sport a wife is, husbands seem to require some fishing trips that are purely stag. When one of these spells comes on, learn to let him go gracefully and you stay home to keep the home fires burning until he returns. Besides, it's surprising \\ o vv much housecleaning you can get done and how many of the little extras you can accomplish when the old man is away. • • * Learn to approach the subject of your husband's fishing obsession philosophically. There are things that are lots worse for him to have as a hobby. Bank robbing, smoking hashish or kicking old ladies, for instance. Fishing can get pretty expensive, bul it has nothing on a weekly session of dollar limit poker. They don't get as much exercise as they do while playing golf, but it least fisherman catch sorhe- .hing to eat from their hobby, fishermen take some risks, but It's not nearly so dangerous as :leer hunting for a fisherman is lever killed -by being mistaken "or a fish. About the worst they can do is fall into the lake. And, n spite of a the jokes about those ndian gals up north, husbands ire pretty safe from other women e they're fishing. How do I <npw? I've seen those Chippewa naidens! * * * Admire the fisherman's catch. It may look like a slimey old creature to you, but it represents lots of trying and out-smarting to your husband. If you can manage to gel some intelligent information about bait, hooks and stuff, (which I haven't acquired) ask him about these. Fishermen like to give play-by-play accounts of the Big Ones even if they got away and if you listen breathlessly to his tales qf his skill in that department it will flatter him lots more than complimenting him on his big blue eyes or the way his hair waves. ... If you have a fisherman husband, learn to cook fish. Don't do like I did when my bridegroom brought home a nice big crappie. I seasoned it carefully, rolled it in flour and got the fat to just "the recommended temperature. Never before, or since, •have ,l\,frted ..anything'- tp^equal that nice" golden brown. - Father was most enthusiasitic about my cooking job when he sat down to dinner. But it didn't last. It seems that although the head and the insides of the fish had been removed, I hadn't realized tilt- fact that the thing should also have been scaled! » * . Nowadays, I like to fry fish after they've been dipped in biscuit mix. The shortening in the mix seems to add to the crisp browness. If we have a big fish, a three or four pounder, I like to stuff it with a sage-bread dressing, wrap it in foil and bake it in a very hot oven. But no matter how careful I am about cooking fish, Father always claims that I don't do nearly such a good job as Ira Kohl does. Once in a while I get a little huffy about it and claim that Ira's fish taste so good because they are right out of the lake into the pan or that anything tastes good on vacations. But Pop says, no. Ira is the all-time champion fish fryer. I guess I'll have to ask him his secret. 1955 Corn And Soybean Crop Are Effected Farmers have only until Mny 31 — the remainder of this month — to obtain loans and purchase agreements on 1955 crop corn eligible for price support, it was pointed out this week by Virgil L. Roll If, office mgr. of the Kossuth County ASC Committee. May 31 is also the date on which all outstanding price support loans and" purchase agreements on soybeans mature. It is generally believed there will be a rush of repayments of soybeans since the market price has been running above the support rate. Of the 243,471 bushels placed under loan in this county, 146,836 bushels were redeemed by April 15, 1956, according to County ASC office records. Rohlf stated that due to the currently stronger market prices, considerable demand for price support on 1955 corn Ls expected in the closing weeks of the application period for that grain. If the pattern of past years is repeated, the final weeks of the period will bring a big increase in purchase agreements, he said. As of April 15, there were 4,476,106 bushels of 1955 corn under loan and 189,461 bushels under purchase agreements in Kossuth county. A year ago, there were 3,228,705 bushels of 1954 corn under original loans and 120,639 bushels under purchase agreements. Only corn raised in 1955 in compliance with acreage allotments is eligible for price support in the current program. STAHT JULY 5 ON A.S.C. VOTING Plans for holding the annual ASC farm program elections and the annual ASC convention in July were announced this week by Virgil L. Rohlf, manager of the Kossuth county ASC. In the elections, an ASC community committee consisting of The four year old daughter of Ginny and Chuck Hinken is learning to cook. She was very busy the other day and her mother asked what she was doing. "Making food out of my clay ami cooking it in my little pans.", was Mama's answer. She was cooking beans, it developed, so Ginny asked, "What kind of beans, dear?" "Human beans", said Murciu. There followed quite a lengthy explanation on the difference between beans and beings together with t h e information that we don't cook people. « • * I noticed that the local stores are carrying the first of the fresh strawberries this week.

In addition, first and second alternate members will be elected in each township. At the county convention, a county ASC committee consisting of a chairman, vice chairman and regular member, as well as first and second alternate members will be elected. The county and community committee administer the federal government's price support, production adjustment and cost-sharing conservation programs on the local level. The township elections will be conducted by mail, the same as in recent years, with the county ASC office sending a secret ballot and a return envelope to every eligible voter on its records.- The period for voting will be from July 5 through July 13. The county convention will be held on July 28 in Algona. The one-year terms of all coin- mitteemen will begin on August 1. However, newly elected chairmen and vice chairmen of the community committees will serve as delegates and alternate delegates to the county convention.

Supervision and direction of the elections will be the duty of a county election board composed of officially designated persons outside the ASC. get them all year 'round, but you still can't improve on the fresh ones.
