4-AtOONA ««*•) ADVANCI AUG. 2f, 1966 •«**•*•»«! "INK in my VEINS By MARIAN INMAN The Kossuth County Fair is over for this year. With interest in the many exhibits, the entertainment, educational and 4-H exhibits, the new and interesting feature for me was the voting machine. We were told that less spoiled ballots will be one of the dividends and with the brief look at the many gadgets 1 am sure we all look forward to September 6 and the primary election. We can't go wrong with the voting judges to help us out if we need help. I'll look forward to seeing you at the primaries. , =>- The gift of sight is most precious. The eye is one of the most marvelous structures In the human body. By means of its mechanism, we can distinquish colors end recognize objects near at hand and at far distances. We can not only see straight ahead of us, but also out of the corner of our eye while looking ahead; thus wo see objects at our side without shifting cur gaze. In the center of our eye is a blind spot, but we are not conscious of it. The eye automatically adjusts itself to the amount of light, but this adjustment is not done as quickly as most people believe, for medical men tell us that it requires a whole hour for the eye to adjust itself completely to darkness after daylight. Colors are parceived by different parts of the eye: red and green by the small area at the center of the eye, yellow and blue by a wider area around this, while black and white are recognized by the extreme outside rim of the retina. Color blindness is frequent. A person may be partially color blind and blind to red and green, seeing them only as a fray color. A person who is totally color blind is blind not only to red and green but to blue and yellow as well. One of the most common eye defects is astigmatism. This is not a defect in vision, for a person may have perfect vision and still suffer from astigmatism. It is a defect in the curvature of the cornea with the result that light does not enter the eyes with uniform focus and thus causes eyestrain. Truly the eye is a marvelous work of nature. Guard yours and your lamilies eyesight. This is a mechanical age and robots are a part of pur daily life. For instance, there is nothing which has come into popularity so suddenly as the electric eye. When I was a little girl I loved the stories about magic and opening treasure caves with the words, "Open Sesame". I still repeat them to myself when I enter a door guarded with an electric eye. They not only open doors but act as a warning. In schools and factories, electric eyes watch over lights during the day. For instance, a dark cloud may come up end obscure the light. The supervisor on duty may not notice this for awhile and, when she turns on the light, she may let it burn long after the cloud has disappeared. Ths electric eye turns on the lights as soon as needed and turns them out again when the ciuod passes away. In the Holland Tunnel from New York to New Jersey, electric eyes have been used to count the cars passing through. One eye counts those entering and another eye counts those leaving. An automatic subtracter shows at all times exactly how many autos are in the tunnel. There are actually thousands of everyday uses of the electric eye and yet many of us have never heard of it. . '•'•• . The eye is a sensitive cell which undergoes a marked change under the influence efjight or darkness. Light permits electricity to flow through the cell but darkness does not. A beam of light is thrown across a door, and onto an electric eye. A person going; through that door cuts off the light beam and thus affects the cell putting off the electric current, which sounds a warning. And without saying, "Ooen Sesame". The dragonfly has an eye made up of thousands of facets or lenses. Thus the dragonfly will see many .thousand different images which it must put together into one complete picture. The human eye is not so, constructed. We see one picture at a time, it is a human failing to see only one small portion of the thing before us at a time. Seldom do we see the complete picture or understand the full significance, of something which wo undertake to Consider. For this reason, we must look many times and consider many different angles and viewpoints before we can reconstruct the complete picture in our minds and arrive at the most reasonable appraisal of the situation. •. We have all heard of the swan song, a phrase which is used to denote the last work .of an'> author or composer. In the ancient days the swan was called the bird of Apollo and it was believed that the swan would sing melodiously, especially at the time of death. Lord Byron, the poet, uses the expression swan song in the following lines: Place me on Sunium's marbled steep, Where nothing save the waves and 1 May hear our mutual murmers sweep; Then, swan-like, let me sing and die. Did you know that King Alfred the Great used the expression, "Oh yeah-" back in the ninth century? "Oh yeah-" may be slang to the modern generation but it was good English back in King Alfred's days. August days are nearly spent and soon it will be September. If you listen carefully you can hear Summer's gypsy feet soft as the falling of a leaf. She trips about making her going sweet, a touch of color here an extra lushness to the goldenrod, summer noises, yet softly slurred hinting of change. And so we are back to school and teachers and students alike pray for strength to grow, humbleness to learn and courage to forget small things that we may build peace of soul to meet each day serenely. Education is a companion which no misfortune can decrease, no crime destroy, no enemy alienate, no despotism enslave; at home a friend, abroad an introduction; in solitude a solace; in society an ornament. Education may cost financial sacrifice and mental pain, but in both money and life values it will repay every cost one hundred-fold. There is no "I" in team.

State St. Algona, Iowa WHER THE"EXTRAS COME FROM DURING RETIREMEMT? • ••• • •••iBsllwIBBB V • • Retirement comes as a shock to some men and women. It frequently means an abrupt adjustment in standard of living. Despite Social Security, pension plans and annuities, it often requires giving up certain things that were easily afforded during a man's working years. The truly provident person prepares for this by accumulating savings that will continueto earn income- money for him after he no longer earns wage-money for himself. Even after retirement has begun, many peoplefind it prudenttocontinue adding systematically to their savings, The money saved is safe and ready to use when you want it. In the meantime, the income on it can be used at will—and in good conscience—for the extras that make life more pleasant Isn't this something worth considering? Why not stop in and arrange a savings program for the extras during your retirement? INSURED Saving makes the difference Home Federal Sayings & Loan Assn.
