Corn 1.08 Oats 68 Soybeans 3.00 Top Hogs 24.50 Top Sows 22,75 Area residents are warned against sob stories by salesmen Sioux County residents are warned to avoid dealings with magazine solicitors, attempting to generate sales by arousing sympathy or support In the form of votes, presumably to permit them to enter school. In a recent sale in Sioux County, the solicitor represented himself as being a Le Mars resident having been wounded in Viet Nam and that he was selling magazines only to enter Medical School. These magazine subscriptions were sold for an inflated price of $145.00 In that it is almost impossible to identify the solicitor once the sale has been made and the company which the solicitor represents is almost always an out-of state subscription service, even though the salesman may have violated the Iowa Consumer Fraud Law, it Is difficult to prosecute the salesman or the subscription service. Magazine sales in these manners frequently operate with a pusher and a number of young salesmen who sometimes are Impaired individuals moving from community to community. The magazine publishers themselves do not employ these individuals and frequently the subscription service may not even be authorized to sell a desired magazine. Purchased magazines are frequently not delivered within a reasonable time. NW holding art show Feb. 28-Mch.
