Earnings for the first six months of the previous fiscal year were $4,191,000 or $1.76 per share of common stock. Improved first-half results were attributable principally tc pork operations, and to the increasing public acceptance of • the comapny's complete line of processed foods, such as are produced in Algona.

If you're talking stocks and bonds, they make sense . . . but, there's not much demand for them at the local meat market. There, customers are interested in beef, pork, frying chickens ... the things that make a meal a meal. What's this have to do with trucks? Ask the livestock and poultry feeders... the packers and processors ... the super market chains and Independent butcher shops, Without trucki, th« main course for Sunday'! dinner would still be standing In the feed lot, lowans know this better than anyone. Our State traditionally leads the nation in livestock marketing. All but a small percentage of this $2-1/2 billion yearly "crop" is carried by trucks. Matter of fact, Iowa agriculture and the trucking Industry are longstanding partners. Over 90% of all farm products "go by truck"... for good reason. It's efficient. Economical. Dependable (And our safety record speaks for Itselfl) Whether It's on Wall Street, New York, or on Main Street, Iowa- trucks help make life better In every way, every dayl IOWA MOTOR TRUCK ASSOCIATION "If You'v* Got It, A Truck Brought It" Mtf Hi Vtt «tf V4 Mtf tt* *ri h4 a weekly message relating the world of today to the lessons of Faith and Church ...

It can tear down a belief, hide a truth. It may even destroy. We should always speak with plainness, in truth. A bad word rides forever on the winds of memory, it may not be recalled.
