Mr. Peterson was born in Council Bluffs in 1884; and i covered over with drifting snow, til Mr. KimbalPs death in 1928. Since the commencement of the there attended public schools ; partnership, Raymond A. Smith, and high school. After being i John LeRoy Peterson and Ray- graduatecl from high school, he worked his way through college, being graduated from the Law Department of Drake University in 1908. He is now a member of the Board of Trustees of that University. He then returned to Council Bluffs to practice his profession, forming a partnership with the late Lieut. Governor Clem F. Kimball; which partnership was continuous un- SPECIFIC MMUNITY If you desired to open a lock and had a great bunch of keys to pick from, you would try eac^ne until you found the right key that fl would fit. Having found the right :key you would tag it so that when you needed it again you would be prepared. That is just what the body does. It acquires an infection, for instance typhoid fever. The body gets busy and makes tup an antibody which neutralizes the typhoid fever infection. After recovery, should the body ever come in contact with typhoid fever again., it would not take the disease ,as readily because the antibodies for that disease would be ready to go into action, not allowing the disease to take hold. It is interesting to know that these antibodies are very specific. Each will work for only one disease. The fundamental principle upon which the theory of osteopathy is made is the fact of natural recovery of the body after germ invasion ? r *njury. Under normal conditions, the body is able to maintain itself in a,state of health, manufacturing all the substances used in its action and doing all the necessary work of its « everydayjlife. When it becomes derranged, the osteopathic physician seeks and removes the cau » c whether it be without or within the body and then uses such measures as will best help the body to restore itself to a state of health. [The osteopathic physician endeavors to accomplish a specific object in every case, that is, removal of whatever obstruction is preventing the free distribution of the fluids and forces of the body. His training is such as to enable him definitely to locate these impediments and remove them. Machines must be properly adjusted to operate efficiently. There are no exceptions. The osteopathic physician's office is literally a repair pfttop where human machines are carefully and kept or put in order.

WALTER, Grove Towwhip, mond G. Peterson, brother ol the candidate, have been addec to the firm. Because of an injury to hi limb in youth he was denied the opportunity to enlist in the World War, but he was a leader iri Southwestern Iowa in all o the home^ activities, such as Red Cross, Liberty Loan drives, etc He has been an aggressive'lead- er for more than twenty ye^r, In numerous civic, religious, and character building activities in his home city and .the state. He was born in the south • part of Council ' Bluffs, and, realizing that there were no park facilities in that section of the city for children of today and of the years to come, he donated to the city park board a block of ground for perpetual park purposes. Mr. Peterson has also been active in the Kiwanis Club and some years ago was District Governor of the Iowa-Nebraska Kiwanis district. Mr. Peterson was city attorney of Council Bluffs from 1916 to 1920. When he was a candidate for re-election in 1918 he was not opposed within his own party, nor by any opposition party candidate. He was a member of the School Board of Council Bluffs for six years from 1922 to 1928, being president two years of that time. These are the only public offices ever held by Mr. Peterson. In 1930 Mr. Peterson was temporary chairman of the Republican State Convention, delivering the keynote speech. Many of the people of this district will remember the very favorable impression created over the entire state by that speech. It is generally conqed- ed that he will make a strong candidate, and if nominated and elected, the Seventh Iowa District will have a fair-minded, aggressive, experienced and independent thinking representative in Congress. Mr. Peterson was married in 1911 to Laura May Robinson of Council Bluffs. They have three shildren: Josephine, a senior in Drake University; Robert, a sophomore in the State University at Iowa City; arid Dick, ten years old. mmmsmmmmmmmtttfe •:Professional Cards:- GEO. L.

Radio, ong-distance telephones, telegrams and letters spread the news throughout the state and ven into other states, with the •esult that one of the greatest esponses made to any plea of ts kind has been brought ibout. Hundreds of tireless vorkers have been distributing rain and grit-. Boy Scouts, 4-H 31ub,s, civic clubs, American Leion posts, schools, sportsmen's rganizations, CCC Camps, in- ustrial firms, elevators,- truck- rs, mail carriers, highway patrolmen, and hundreds of others have carried on the work, r took funds, and contributions were sent in from every cornel of the state and from other states as well. Tons of food were purchased. But now comes another deep snow and 20 degrees below zero'and high winds. Food has been .covered up, shelters blown full of snow and funds and food are running low. The work must be continued, more so now than ever. Shelters Important It is proven that not the lack of food alone is responsible for the loss of game bird life. Lack of suitable cover or shelter combined with the food shortage is responsible. Grit must also be supplied. The placing of food on the open snow may do some good but is soon covered up or is too far away from shelter for the birds to venture out to it. Lean-to shelters constructed of brush, straw, hay, or cornstalks, should be built with the opening toward the .southeast if possible. Opening up straw- stacks on the south will also help. Brush piles, placed in easily accessible places, will serve. It is at these shelters that the food and grit should be placed regularly. Every day is not too often. Keep the shelters free of snow. Provide hoppers for the food and grit, if possible. Keep the snow cleared away in several spots on the south side of woodlots, hedges and orchards. Baskets made of small sections of woven wire fencing filled with ear corn will, when placed in these spots, take care of many birds. The wire basket may be filled with ear corn and hung on a tree a few feet above the ground with a small brush pile placed underneath, that the birds may reach the basket. This is especially good for quail as the brush pile affords protection from "enemies". "Continue" This work is now started and !ven mild weather must not stop the regular feeding. It must not stop until the snow is gone. The chances are great that sleet storms will come with milder weather. This is more serious than snow. It freezes over the nostrils of the birds and they smother. Grain should DC conserved. If fed in small amounts every day the loss of :rain will not be so great when snow or sleet comes. There is much work to be done and now conservation of food supplies is becoming extremely important. 100 ft. $4,78 10 lb. cloth Salted P'nuts Fresh roasted Ib •___ ~-—~^^ Pickles Fancy Bread and Butter, fullqt Swans Down pkg.
