Mrs. Kloster WHAT YOU NEED IN CASE OF A BLACKOUT! A thousand and one anecdotes came out of the Eastern Seaboard's "Big Blackout," and the hero of many of these .tales was the transistor portable radio. Some observers even credit it with averting a full-scale panic in New York City. We hesitate to go that far, but we do know that a battery- powered radio is a mighty handy item to have around, blackout or no. If you don't yet own a good portable radio, why not take a look at our line of RCA Victor "Powerlift" models? No slaves to a wall socket, these. They're footloose and fancy free. On land or sea they're at your service—ready to bring you music, news, sports or whatever. You can even have the world at your fingertips with one of RCA Victor's superb new multi-band portables. So don't wait for a blackout. Be prepared to enjoy RCA Victor radio listening wherever you go.

Phillips Algona As Advertised In Farm And Home Section STRONG CHURCHES.., Make Strong Communities "It ia written that man shall not live by bread alone, but every word of God.' —Deuteronomy 8:3 Man cannot endure without food; his body requires it. Yet, man has an equally great need in trying Umes; he must have faith to sustain him. Remember that Jesus, once urged by His disciples to rest from teaching and partake of food, reminded them of the importance of the fruits of His labor. And, again, when tempted by the devil to turn stone Into bread, Jesus refused, because it is written that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God." In these modern times a man must put forth effort to secure for himself and his family the necessities and some small measure of the comforts of life; yet there is always time . . . and always the need—for finding the the strength that lies in the word of God.
