Iowa January Is: EDITORIAL: Meaning of Christmas Did you have an Xmas or a Christmas this year? Has the real meaning of Christmas been pushed into the background, smothered by the "Christmas rush,*' Santa Claus and the big turkey stuffed with dressing. ,/,i,^.t «f» » Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Christ. It's a time of happiness, and a time when you give—because you like Xmas is the house decorations-it's the commercialized Christmas. Christ gets pushed into the background by Santa Claus and all the selfish giving. How about your everyday life? Do you live a Christ- centered life or an X-centered life? Are you caught up In the filth of X-rated movies, or in an X-rated life? Or, have you found the joy you can have be living your life for Christ? Krueger Korale Hero's your Around the Farm Reporter with some news worthy tidbits from Kreuger's Korale. The Korale is located in the southwestern part of the Orange City farming district, and is owned by Mr. Gene K. Kreuger. For our first item, we find that one of the sows had 16 baby piggies. This Is certainly a wonderful happening, but does result in, more mouths to feed, and dirtier pens to clean. Isn't life beautiful, though? Another incident occured last evening, when Mr. Kreuger returned home to find all his.cattle out. Yes, Mr. K. must have left something open. Those cattle must have learned a few new words that night. Let's hope that the all was found, and that all is back to normal at the Double K. Next time, Mr. Kreuger, be sure to put all in cattle In the barn, before you forget to shut the door. Mr. Kreugep of the Universe All girls are Invited to bring their fathers out for supper at the Y-Teen Father Daughter Banquet. It will be held January 18, 6:30, at the town hall.

Typing is fun. Typing IS fun. Typing is FUN! That's what I hear, anyway. Oh, heck, it is not! My mind cannot fathom the ecstasy of striking, say the 'D' key, while knowing very well I told my left hand to hit the 'S.' And, oh, the sheer joy of knowing I've typed error lessly on the wrong line! At thirty-eight words per minute (three errors), mistakes like that can be perturbing, to say the least. But I do enjoy timed writings. I really do. REALLY I do. They're truly a fascinating experience. Take a typical timed writing. I adjust my machine for the correct number of spaces (doing this with an expert motion, while hoping the teacher won't notice I've forgotten to put a sheet of paper in) and turn to the correct page in my book. The teacher turnes his back for a moment, so I quickly shove in a clean sheet, mangling it in the process. But it is in place by the time he turns around, even if it is at a thirty degree angle. I tilt my head to one side so it will look straight, and await the word. And the word comes, so I immediately begin typing with a massive convulsion of my hands. In other words, I've just struck eight or ten keys at once, and an trying to figure out how in heaven's name I ever did that while at the same time silently swearing to myself. My page reads Jcdflas, and I congratulate myself for having made only one error in the first thirty seconds. I then decide to type another Work of Beauty About three years ago, Mr, Richard Rlggan, high school English teacher to M-OC decided to build four money chests to encourage his four children to save their money. He built them in the shape of one-dollar bills. In doing this he became interested in such work and began to study about different trees and wood from all over the world. After having constructed e- hough of them, he uses his chests when speaking to people. They aid him In getting accross the concept that no two are alike, yet are very much alike. Each has Its own character -- each has Its problems. While working with the chests, Mr. Rlggan thinks of human beings. Many human lessons are Involver. For example, some wood Is warped and needs to be pressed. Certain types of wood splinter easily, others dull the knife. Yet a few remain almost perfect. For demonstrating purposes, Mr Rlggan took peices 1 of black cherry wood from the same trunk, back to back, and created two chests as nearly identical as possible. Some day he hopes to give them to a pair of identical twin girls. In dealing with them, one finds that even they are different. They look alike, but minute details exist between them giving them their own personalities. Humans are mislead. This concept Is easily proven in a few other chests made by the English teacher. Black ebony, a wood from the Ivory Coast of Africa, and White Holly, from America, each contain golden streaks. These he uses to show imperfections. However, the main concept Mr. Riggan wants to get across in this work is that the overall product is a work of beauty. Mr. Riggan has made over 100 chests. Besides using them for visual aids in speaking, he also .makes them for gifts. Dutchman Dateline Orange Peelings Staff: »,, . word, and do this with errorless precision. Once more I congratulate myself, since I've only made one error still, and our minute Is up, for all practical purposes. I decide and hang it up. Still, I do enjoy typing. Typing Is fun.

Photographers are Terry Goslinga and Mark Drake. I am very important. All people respect me and everyday I am saluted. I have great fun and I love my job. By now, unless you are exceedingly ignorant, you have guessed what I am. I'm happy because I want you to know. I am the twenty-seventh star on the flag. My good friends are all around me. We seldom worry about the inter-state problems you people do. Sometimes I am unhappy though. The red and white stripes often drag us down. They think they.'re so big and powerful just because they're older than we. The blue field beneath us is a delightfully jovial friend. He helps to keep us stars and those snobbish stripes away from each other. The poor guy, though, is often ridiculed for not taking sides. He takes it in stride, however, although he is the least noticed from a crowd. Texas and Michigan are flanked on .either side of me. I am the fantastic state of Florida. I represent the sunny beaches, alligators, Miss America, and Miss Universe. Michigan can only boast of Lake Michigan and Texas is only the largest state. I am surrounded by ocean on three sides. Some dim-witted middle states like Colorado and Iowa, say I'm waterlogged. So much they know. I guesss I am getting carried away but really, don'fryou think the stars are beautiful?We're all eternally grateful for Betsy Ross (six appendages is just one too many), I'm so happy and I just can't stop my boasting, but then I don't really want to. I'm about ready to burst my stiches from pride.

Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Ver Hoef left Tuesday morning to spent the winter in Mesa, Ariz. farm Outlook: Smaller supplies and expected good demand will keep hog prices this year well above 1971 levels, according to Gene Futrell, extension economist at Iowa State University. And because of lower feed costs, the profit picture should be considerably better in 1972. The USDA's December report on Hogs and Pigs, re T leased Dec, 22, 1971, estimated the number of hogs on U.S. farms Dec. 1 at 63 million head -- 8 percent fewer than a year earlier. The number of breeding stock on hand was down 10 percent; market hogs showed a 6 percent reduction. The fall pig crop (June-November) was estimated at nearly 45,7 million head -- down 8 percent from the previous year. The 10 major hog states recorded an average 9 percent decrease in sow farrowings during this period. Sow farrowing intentions for the December 1971-May 1972 period were estimated to be down 10 percent from actual farrowings a year earlier, a larger reduction than many people had anticipated. Iowa producers Indicated they plan to cut farrowings 16 percent in December-February and 7 percent in March-May, Hog prices showed a net advance of around $2 per hundredweight during December, Prices dropped the last week Of the month, but U.S, No. 2's and 3's 200-240 pound butchers in Iowa and Southern Minnesota were still sell- ing in early January in a $21.50 to $22.50 range -- around $6.50 per hundredweight higher than a year earlier. Futrell says a drop in processor cutout margins accounted for much of the December price strength. The margin dropped from around $2 per hundredweight (live basis) in early December to near zero by late December. December 1 hog inventory estimates indicate January- February hog marketings will be 4 or 5 percent smaller than a year earlier. March- June slaughter should show a larger decrease of around 7 percent, according to the economist. Seasonally, volume should decline moderately into mid-winter, increase again in late March and early April and then decline moderately into early summer. Futrell forecasts a strong demand for pork although beef and broiler supplies will be above year- earlier levels during the next few months. Stronger economic activity and gains in employment and incomes should be positive influences. The 1972 hog price outlook: Prices weakening temporarily during early January recovering by late January or early February, Interior Iowa and Southern Minnesota prices for 200-240 pound butchers are expected to be mostly within a $21 to $23 range during the January-March quarter. Seasonal strength will probably carry prices to the $23 to $24 level in Iowa by June with a further rise to $25-$26 possible in July, according to the economist.
