THE LENOX TIME TABLE, LENOX. IOWA Distress Story From Lineville Is Exaggerated Relief Office Scoffs at Report that Old Woman and Six Children are Starving (Corydon Times-Republican) When a deserving family seeks relief and fails, that's a matter to be taken to authorities; but when a family moves from Missouri to Iowa with the express purpose of getting relief here because Iowa "pays more", when they refuse medical aid, when they refuse to help themselves — that's a matter which was overlooked in a recent scramble for front page fodder. We refer you to the much publicized Bardwell case in which a family of eight is reputed to be slowly starving in the town of Lineville, la.

They delib erately moved to the Iowa sid of Lineville in September, 193 because the Iowa relief rolls ar< more liberal in payment to the! financially unable clients than Missouri. However, Mrs. Bard well did not reckon with Iowa relief laws. On November 20th, 1934, non-resident notice was served on Mrs Bardwell. The fact was expained to her, that as a resi dent of Missouri her relie would come from Missouri, bu the family remained, stubborn in their belief that Iowa "paid more". They were taken care of by the transient bureau o Des Moines. Mrs. Bardwell, physically in poor health, is unable to support her family because she is troubled with chronic appendicitis. Arrangements were made by Dr. C. E. Lovett of Lineville and Miss Ernestine Zollman through the transient bureau in Des Moines, for an appendicitis operation. Expenses would be borne by the state. Her rail road ticket was purchased and plans completed, but Mrs. Bard well decided not to go through with it on the complaint tha "new things made her nervous' Not long ago the family was offered several bushels of pota toes if they would dig them The family refused. On September 20th of this year a bulletin was issued to the relief office here from state headquarters containing the in formation that transient relie was to be discontinued in Wayne county. The Bardwel family was so notified, but they still clung to their idea tha money could be wrung more easily from the Iowa relief office than from Missouri. Th< Missouri officials were willing to support them, the Wayne county office had no authority to do so. During the month of October when the eight Bardwells were supposedly facing starvation they, in reality, spent close to $22.30 on groceries. A collection in Lineville accounted for $11.00. The rest was partly paid for and partly credited at a Lineville grocery store. The latter sum amounted to $10.30 Included in this money spent for food was a pure $3.00 donation paid from the pockets 01 employees in the relief office at Corydon. The story has only halt been told, but on Tuesday, October 29, the BardweU's wish and wait policy—their faithful hallucination that Iowa would give them more than Missouri- came true. An order came (from the transient bureau to provide the family with groceries and the bureau has accepted the case until such time as the bureau fails to receive federal funds. PURPLE-WINGED MARTINS TO THE RESCUE Until a neighbor put up a Martin house, C. R. Shafer of Spring Hill had trouble with crows, hawks and bluejays stealing his small chickens and songbird eggs. Shafer states that since the Martins have taken possession of the new home hi the neighbors yard, very few chickens and songbirds are lost. From the railway depot where Shafer works he states he can often see the Martins taking the crows and hawks away from his place and to the timber across a valley. Shafer suggests that Martin houses be constructed and placed around game producing areas for the protection it would afford young quail and pheasants. Shafer also reports seven different kinds of birds' nests hi one apple tree located within 15 feet of his home. The kind of birds were listed as mourning dove, robin, red-headed woodpecker, flicker, blackbird, wren and sparrow. An apple tree evidently is the choice of birds for Shafer has numerous other trees hi his yard and hi the vicinity of the apple tree.

Yauch of LaFayette, Ind., in which Mr. Yauch attacks Kent for reprinting a letter from another farmer attacking the AAA. Mr. Yauch says: "Every farm should have a quota of bushels of corn, wheat, oats, rye, etc., and pounds of pork, beef, mutton, butter fat, etc., over which amount could not be sold from that farm unit. Then we would have a real crop control. On my farm I can only put out 17 acres of corn; 20 acres wheat. But that's O. K. I would much rather raise only 500 bushels of wheat and get $1 per bushel, than raise only 1,000 bushels and get 50 cents per, and so would you if you were a farmer. Soybeans do not injure the flavors of either milk or butter when fed as hay or grain, according to the new Iowa State College Extension Service circular, "Feeding Soybeans." Feeding in excessive quantities, bow- ever, appears to affect the consistency of butterfat. It is safe to feed soybeans when they make up no more than one- third of the grain mixture. 1936 WHITE GRUB YEAR; FEAR SERIOUS OUTBREAK Next year is white grub year, and it is likely to be damaging to the farmers in the central and eastern portions of the state where infestations will be heaviest, according to C. J. Drake, state entomologist. Little can be done for protection against the white grub, he says, though it is dangerous in the infested areas to plow up fields of timothy or blue grass to be planted in a susceptible crop like corn. Brood A, the most destructive species of the white grub, becomes a dangerous menace every 3 years, and Dr. Drake predicts that next year's infestation is likely to be particularly heavy because of the large number of June beetles, predecessors of the grub, in the state this year. Infestations are seldom uniform but are spotted, he says. After a heavy meal, though, apple pie of this sort may overtax the digestive process, so if the dessert is to be apple pie at all, it might be the deep-dish variety. This says Miss Lowenberg, has only one crust — the lower part of the pie is all apple. Two other variations of the apple pie, which Miss Lowenberg suggests, and turnovers. are dumplings Dumplings are Prairie Star News The second P.T.A. meeting was held last Friday night, with a good attendance.

She advises slicing the apple and placing the slices together again before the jacket of the pie pastdy is wrapped about it. This insures complete cooking. To make apple turnovers, she gives the following instructions: Roll out pastry dough into rounds the size of a large saucer. On half of each round arrange layers of thinly sliced apples, sprinkle with a mixture of sugar, cinnamon and a little salt, and dot with butter. Moisten the rim of pastry around the apples. Fold the other half of the pastry over the apples and press the edges firmly together with a fork. Prick the top crust and bake in a moderate oven for about 20 minutes. Apples contain vitamins A, B For the Homemaker Ideas, Suggestions, News for Women Readcn MEN LIKE APPLE PIE Most men will appreciate hot apple pit topped with melted cheese, says Miss Miriam Lowenberg of the foods and nutrition staff at Iowa State College. After you have baked the pie, lay thin slices of sharp cheese or place grated sharp cheese over the top of the pie, put it back into the oven long enough to melt the cheese and serve hot.

Before a man can qualify to be a private in an army, he must be able to pass some rigid tests. Many men are not accepted. They cannot qualify. Before those who are taken on trial can be promoted, they must have proven their merits. In examining recruits for aviation and other specialzied forms of service, most thorough and exacting tests are required, Some of those who have tried have proven true. These principles apply to advertising. Tests are made. Some have tried mimeographed circulars and found them fallen by the wayside. Others have tried folders. These go to the wastebasket. Others have proven t.hat the newspaper—an invited guest in the home—is given most reader consideration. STILL OTHERS have tried and found true a specialized combination of direct mail and newspaper advertising.
