May IS, 1956 Slgonn Bcs fHoinr 5 May 31st Deadline For Crop Support Loans When a girl is about to be married there are lots of well- wishing people ready to hand her all kinds of advice. Marriage, they warn her, isn't all moonlight and roses. She's got to expect some rough spots along with the smooth. They tell her about all sorts of dire possibilities like financial reverses, in-law trouble. predatory women, incurable disease and separation by war. But nobody thinks to warn her that her most glamorous rival may very well be a fish pole! * » » The season opened this week and husbands by the score kissed their wives, kids and jobs good-bye and succumbed to the lure of the walleye. I'm a fishing widow myself right now, but that's entirely normal at our house this time of year. I've learned to expect it and cope with it—in fact, I'd worry a little about the health of the head-of-the-house if he didn't want to go fishing. What's bothering me are all those unsuspecting June brides who will promise to love and cherish fishermen without fully under- PETERSEN FURNITURE Gef y6Urehf ry Quality Furniture FENTON, IA. 5OO,OOO CONTEST GRAND PRIZE «2O,OOO in Slicks or *2O;OOO in Cosh Win $20,000 worth of America'a "blue chip" stocks!

If you have it, it can be controlled and the patient can lead an otherwise normal life but he never really gets over it. Sometimes the fishing germ is contagious; it's parsed from hand-to-hand and mouthf-to* mouth when victims brag about their piscatorial prowess to non- sufferers. The tendency to fishing can be inherited from father to srtn to grandson like the blood disease that used to plague the royal houses of Europe. And other authorities believe that the malady is entirely environmental since the most pronounced addicts tend to inhabit 'regions within a day's drive of a stream, lake or ocean. But it really does not matter too rrluch how your guy caught the urge to fish, or even how to cure him, the trick is to learn to recognize it early and to figure out ways to cope with it. * II was already too laie when I 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 to doesn't have marble palaces and gold paved 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 got away from them here on earth. So you can see I have quite a bit of research material on the ways of fishermen and for advice on the problems of a fisherman's wife I can consult my mother-in-la%v who, in turn, learned it from her mother-in-law. We plan to pool our information and give it to Bill's wife when he marries because he's also a fisherman. • • • . The very first rule for a fisher- man's wife is to always make him clean his own catch. If, on your honeymoon, he catches one measly little bullhead don't give in and clean it for him because 1 you have Stardust in your eyes. If you know how to gut a walleye or steak a Northern, keep it a deep, dark secret. Do it once, and you'll always have the messy job of fish cleaning on your 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 confirmed 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 it's reading, pack a pile of books. If you have children, they can run along the shore of a lake just as well as they can at home and everybody gets a picnic lunch LUCKY NUMBERS! NUTTY NUMBERS ! — And Some Terrific Special Values !

But, it tfeems to me, no mutter how good a sport a wife is, husbands seem to require some fishing trips that are purely stag. When one of these spells conies on, learn to let him go gracefully and you stay home to keep the home fives burning until he returns. Besides, it's surprising h o \v much housecleaning you can gel done and how many of the little extras you can accomplish when the old man is away. * * * Learn lo approach Ihe 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, but 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 at least fisherman catch something to eat from their hobby. Fishermen take some risks, but it's not nearly so dangerous as deer hunting for a fisherman is never killed by being mistaken for a fish. About the worst they can do is fall into the lake. And, in spite of a the jokes about those Indian gals up north, husbands are pretty safe from other women while they're fishing. How do I know? I've seen those Chippewa maidens! * * * 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 nianage to get 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 of 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 bit; crappie. I seasoned it carefully, rolled it in flour and got the fat. to just the recommended temperature. Never befol;e; or. since, "have 1 *!: friet^ arrytning " to 'equal- that nice*gdl l den Brdwn'^Fatfic'r was most enthusiastic 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 the 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 gues,s I'll have to ask him his secret. » * * The four year old daughter of Ginny and Chuck ilinkun 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 and cooking it in my little pans.", was Marcia's answer. She was cooking beans, it developed, so Ginny asked, "What kind of beans, dear?" "Human beans", said Marcia. There followed quite a lengthy explanation on the difference between beans and being* together with t h e information that wu don't cook people;. « » • I noticed that the local stores are carrying the first of the fresh strawberries this week. Now, strawberries are good frozen and I think we are lucky to be able l<> L. S. BOHANNON There is a lot of dust involved in our work, and over a period of years it may lead to respiratory ailments.

L. Rohlf, 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 staled that due to the currently stronger 'market prices, considerable demand for price support on 1955 corn is 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. START 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 Kossulh county ASC. • In the elections, an ASC community committee consisting of .a, chairman, vice chairman and •regular members will be named in every township. 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 foi 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 committeemen 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. The general rules on eligibility to vote and hold office will be the same as last year. There are no restrictions on tne number of terms which may be served by an eligible person. Supervision and direction of the elections will be the duty of a county election board composed of officially designati'd persons outside the ASC. get them all year 'round, but you still can't improve on the fresh ones. When they get a bit more plentiful, we'll all want to make jam. Mabel Sorensen gave me this recipe many years ago and it's still the best one I've found for strawberry jam. 4 cups berries 5 cups sugar '.-> cup lemon juice Cook the berries and juice together for 7 minutes. Add the .sugar and cook for 5 minutes more. —GRACE. Lakotans Are Baptism Sponsor Lakota—Dr. and Mrs P. C.
