GREEN GIANT NOT JOLLY luveme Star Herald — The Jolly Gre«n Giant has o sour taste in his mouth os he locks to the south. This famous firm has its headquarters in LeSweur, Minnesota. Its op*ra1icns in California will run 515 million a year in addition to all the business it does In Minnesota. In California the Minnesota firm packs Brv^veJ sprouts, carrots, broccoli, beans, asparagus, cauliflower and spiriach. But the Jolfy Green Giant keeps eyeing Mexico and he thinks things may be greener south of the border. Eight major American food processors ere now operating in Mexico. R. C. Cosgrove, president of the Minnesota firm, confirms that Green Giant is setting up a pilot project in the Sonora area. The reason? The cutting off of the bracero program cut off the supply of cheaper, "stoop" labor. Costs soared. Supply was uncertain. None of the food processors want to talk much about the situation for fear of upsetting the growers. Green Giant executives like the Sonora area because irrigation projects ore underway. There is a reservoir of skilled and technical help. The company would hydra cool produce and ship in refrigerated trucks to a Mexican border town for processing with ultimate sale being in the U. S. Our Minnesota "Jolly Green Giant" may bs developing a Latin accent before too long —which is another illustration of the fact that sometimes labor con price itself out of the market. Warrensburg, Mo., Star-Journal: "A newspaper ad is more than cold type. More even than cold type carrying a message.

All of my girlfriends feel the difference in our age* is not too much. Boys and older peopk think he U to old for me. This boy goes to college, but 1 see him on weekends and during the summer. My best girlfriend is 15 years old and she likes a boy who is 19 — so their age difference is the same. I saw this boy that 1 like during the past summer. I still like him, but I don't know what to do. Do you think he is too old? And, how can I get him back 0 " OUR REPlV: A difference of four years in age is unimportant where adults are concerned. In the teen years, however, four years can be quite a spread. Preferably, a teenage girl should stay within her own age group. Advisedly, she should do so until she graduates from high school. A year or two difference in ages be- comes less important as one grows older. In some instances, girls of 17 or 18 are as "mature" as boys three or four years older. But, individual cases differ. Our best adivce is to remain friends with the hoy and not make it a real serious thing. If it is meant to be, time will make things right.

This was three years ago, and at the time I believed my retirement was going to be enjoyable. I never dreamed it would be as wonderful as it has turned out to be. . ."

Once the symptom* appear - law clenching (which gives the disease Its common name of lockjaw), convul«ion», breathing muscle paroxysms a doctor cannot do anything about the poison that already has entered the nervous system. He can administer sedation and oxygen and take other steps to try to tide the victim over. He can use medication to try to neutralize any poison that has not yet produced harm, More often than not, none of this wiH be enough. Yet simple Immunization Is an almost perfect preventive. In all the wars before World War D, tetanus took more lives than swords, arrows and bullets. In World War II, thanks to Immunization, ihere were only four cases of tetanus among nearly 2,800,000 wounded. Immtralzation is best started early - 1 1/2 to 2 months after birth - to guard against the scrapes and falls of chfldhood. But even adulthood Is not too late. There is a series of three shots, followed by a booster within six to 12 months. Immunity can be maintained with a booster every five years. When a serious injury- occurs, a doctor may administer another booster and you -rill be safe, ANIMAL SERUM But if you haven't been immunized or immunity has worn off, It is too late to establish active immunity after an injury. Then an antitoxin made from animal serum may have to be used to provide temporary protection. The antitoxin is a lifesaver for most people, but as much as 25 percent of the population is sensitive to the substance. Dr. Champ Lyons of the University of Alabama School of Medicine has estimated that each year 2 5, 000 of the 500,000 people who have to take animal antitoxin require bos- pitalization because of reactions. Once in every 50,000 to 200,000 cases the reaction to horse serum may be death. As a safeguard, doctors make skin tests to determine sensitivity. But skin tests are not foolproof. Fortunately, a human tetanus antitoxin free of sensitivity problems is coming into use, but the supply is limited and it may not be available when needed. There is no substitute for active immunization. B could have prevented the ordeal of the woman who cut herself gardening and it could have saved the life of the 3-year old boy. If you or members of your family have not been immunized or have allowed your immunity to lag, you should make an appointment soon with your doctor. You should also get from your doctor a note showing the dates of your tetanus immunization and you should carry it with you . In an emergency the note will tell a doctor unfamiliar with your history that you have been immunized, pHminaHng the need for antitoxin. Immunization can be a lifesaver. So can a note carried in your wallet or purse. INSURANCE A. J. (Ante) Rieklefo IJ Health ft Accident Life - Auto - Fire - Hail 3 E. State _ 2964529 ALGONA INSURANCE AGENCY J. R.
