WILTGEN JEWELERS AIGONA Sf, Ann Readie; For Medicare Hospital Plan St. Ann hospital, among all others In the nation, is readying itself for whatever changes will be required with the advent of the Medicare program, Sister Mary Charles, administrator, reports. She said plans for the Utilization Committee have been submitted and she was waiting for a survey by the State Board of Health before accreditation would be made for participation in the program. "Our facilities are adequate now for any increase of patients due to Medicare," she said. "I feel the physicians here are very cooperative In the program." She added that she feels the same standards for all hospitals, large and small, to participate in the Medicare prog ram was rather unfair. The hospital here has 40 beds. Problems would not be the same for a 40-bed hospital as for one of 400 beds. Whittemore 4-H Club Is Host To Mothers Whittemore Boys 4-H met Monday, May 9 at St. Michael's school.

Watchworks are fallible. A bit of dirt or glob of oil can send springs, gears and wheels hay wire. The Bulov'a Accutron timepiece doesn't depend on watchworks. Instead, an electronic tuning fork divides each second into 360 equal parts and we guarantee accuracy within 60 seconds a month.' The price is $125.00. That's without the works.

Bob enthusiastically states: "I first became interested in Thermogas as a tractor fuel after having installed o Thermogas furnace. I was impressed with the cleaner burning of the furnace and figured from what I had read that this would be the cleanest type fuel I could use in my tractor. I can say, after three years operation, I have been extremely happy with my Thermogas powered tractor. A head gasket went out on the tractor this spring, and in checking out the motor, found it as clean as new and the valves is excellent condition. Another problem that has virtualy been eliminated with LP is dirt in the carburetor. I have found Thermogas to be an economical and efficient fuel for any farm job, light or heavy, and am greatly impressed with the increased lugging power. I have been well satisfied with the service I have received from Thermogas of Algona, and would certainly recommend it's use to each and every farmer.
