The meaning and importance of Poppy Day is deepened as we this year pay tribute to those who have lost their lives or who have been disabled in service to their country in Viet Nam.

The American Legion Auxiliary therefore hopes that there will be a 'poppy over every heart' May 28. - o - MONDAY PROGRAM The Memorial Day program will be held In the school auditorium at 9:30.

When Johnny wants a job-after high school or college-will your community offer him the job he wants? The record shows that many communities can not now offer young people the chance and challenge they want. That's why so many leave rural areas for the cities, and for opportunity in other states. Keeping agriculture strong and full of opportunity is one way to keep Johnny at home-one way for your community and state to benefit from the training it has provided him. Farmer cooperatives work hard to keep agriculture profitable and full of opportunity. They do it by making the farmer an owner of the businesses from which he buys and to which he sells. Where is Johnny going? Farmer cooperatives want him to have the chance to go on from opportunity to opportunity. They're working day-in and day-out to see that he has that chance in an agriculture full of promise. IRVINGTON CO-OP ELEVATOR E. F. Immerfall, Mgr. LONE ROCK CO-OP EXCHANGE — Loreiu Geitxenauer, Mgr.
