Editorial— It's County Fair Time Again in Carroll County This is> Fair *Week in Carroll County. The 39th Annual Four County Fair, at Cobh Rapids, opened yesterday for a four-day stand, featuring entertainment for the whole family. While primarily an agricultural and linstock attraction, with special emphasis on classes for junior exhibitors, a county fair most certainly should create widespread interest- among both rural and urban residents of all ages within a wide radius of the teeming fairgrounds. And the event now in progress at Coon Rapids should be no exception. Many a county fair has fallen by the wayside since the good old days of some 30 or 40 years ago when almost every county boasted of a thriving exposition along about harvest time every' year. County fair time was a signal for both the people from the country and froni the towns to get together for a celebration and relaxation. For a great many, attendance at the county fair constituted the year's only break from the usual routine. But, like the fate which befell many an early American institution, county fairs have in large part been eliminated from the picture. Whether it has been the motor age, making it possible for people to go many times farther in half the time once required to go by wagon or horse and buggy to the county fair, or just the changing times it is difficult to Times Herald/ Carroll, Iowa Monday, July 29, 1957 pinpoint causes for the demise of fairs. • But,Coon Rapids and Carroll County can take pride In the fact the 39th Annual Four County Fair is underway. It is most commendable that the management of this fair continues the annual exposition, undaunted* no doubt by the same or similar circumstances that have caused numerous other county fairs to quietly pass from the picture. It is indeed a fine thing that the fine 4-H club boys and gfrls of the area are afforded an opportunity to exhibit the produce of their industry and ability at the fair. And there are many other departments of the annual exposition to attract the interest of all ages. To the Four County Fair go best wishes for outstanding successes in ail departments of its 39th annual exposition now in progress.

The Truth in Vino Is That It's the Life of the Party By PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON - (NEA)-Aldo Morante, the sleek, gray • haired and olive - skinned commercial counseler of the Italian Embassy, acted as official host for a wine-tasting, "festa" here the other night. It was something new in Washington free-loading. Over 300 guests were invited to don black tie and formals to come taste 22 different Italian wines — courtesy of the' wine importers and wholesalers and the Mayflower Hotel, which furnished the ballroom, waiters and Italian cheeses and breads the guests munched between sips to sharpen their taste buds. In all honesty, it must be reported that fewer than 100 stayed for the fall course, which ran from 9 p.m. to something after 3 a.m. Even Italy's Ambassador and Signora Brosio, who gave the party class, quit about midnight just as though they had tasted Italian wines before. ' But in case you want to throw one of these parties in your own back yard, this is how it's done. As your guests arrive and while they're still standing serve them three vermouths — one after the other — a dry, a sweet and Punt E Mes, which has bitters and herbs in it. Then the guests are seated at tables for the serious work of the evening. In the center of each table, big trays of cheeses and breads. Before each guest, four small wine glasses and a printed program. This told the order in which the wines would be served, with a line of description about each. Sure. How else would you know what you were getting? Waiters fill one glass about a third full. That way, one .bottle serves about a dozen or a score and nobody gets a skinful right off. And so on right down the list. For this Washington tasting, the fourth wine served was good old Soave. The program said it was rich, fruity, dry and fragrant. The gueBts who didn't read this took a taste and pronounced it delicate and a bit on the sweet side. To keep them from making mistakes of this kind, Alvin Kerr, a New York expert, was brought down to give a commentary on every wine. He was heard politely while he said that wine tasted just as good if you were in overalls and drank fronjk.a peanut-butter glass. You didrrt have to get all dressed up to like wine. If you liked your Chianti chilled, put it in the icebox. The only rule was white wine before red, dry before sweet, light before heavy. Otherwise, drink what you like the way you like it. After this, nobody paid much attention to what Mr. Kerr said. Meantime, waiters were supposed to : be ^pouring wines number five 'and six — Verdicchio and Castelli di Canelli. Then glasses number one and two were supposed to be taken away, washed and brought back for wines number seven and eight, i.e. vietto and Lachrima Christi. But aleng about midnight this system broke .down. Either they ran 'out of glasses, or the dishwashing machine gave up, or the waiters decided enough was enough. To get wines number 16 —(Valpolicella) to 22 (Barbares- co) it became necessary to use influence and an unwashed glass* Nobody minded. A bevy of glamor girls from Jerry Allen's key school of charm circulated around the tables to show the guests bottles from which they could read the labels. But if there was anything in the bottle, there seemed to be a demand for It.. Guests - explained they wanted the empties to take home and plant Ivy inv . y, But a gay tithe was had by all, as you can read between the lines. An orchestra played Italian folk songs. Emelia Cundar of the Met sang solos and led group singing. Next morning, there, wasn't anything the matter that a few sips of water and half a bottle of headache pills couldn't fix. Best and most original party in Washington this year. * JORDAN SAYS * •y «PWIN f.

The second is that cleanliness is exceedingly important. Skin which has dirt on it also has germs. Wounds or cuts made by* dirty objects are more likely to produce trouble than those made by clean ones, For this reason the liberal use of soap and water is the best first step in treatment, This alone gets rid of more germs and dirt than anything else which can be used. » The* third point to. decide is what antiseptic/ or* germicide should be put an. There, are many of them, including tincture of iodine and many chemical combinations eontaininx mercury, silver and certain dyes No preparation seems to be superior as an all-purpose antiseptic. Tincture of iodine causes some stinging in open wounds; but seems to be goojd to its effect; on germsjVJIutsometimes burnt and slightly damagfi the tissue; Certainly it should not ba used "Whose Idea Was It to Stand Up and Be Counted?"!Afraid Neighbors Will Laugh? Tell It to: more than once or twice on the same wound. All of the antiseptics marketed by reputable companies seem to have some advantages and some disadvantages. One or more should be in everj medicine cabinet and used for minor cuts or injuries, but cleansing with soap and water should not be neglected- The search for a perfect antiseptic or germicide has gone on ever since bacteria were known to exist. Unfortunately, most chemical substances which attack germs also tend to destroy or harm tender human tissues. Some people who suffer wounds also need "shots" for tetanus or lockjaw. One other point % which I might mention here, because it should be brought to the attention of everyone, is the question of the accidental splattering of some chemical or irritating substance into the eye. If this happens the eye should be washed immediately and thoroughly with plain water until the doctor can be reached. Perhaps the easiest way to do this is to run water from the tap into the cupped palm of the hand and then wink the eye into that water several times.

' see it last Q—Why does Canada celebrate Private Service for Saucer-Seers By DOUGLAS LARSEN NEA Staff Correspondent /WASHINGTON — (NEA) - You can now report seeing flying saucers without being tagged as the neighborhood nut. That's one of the several unique services being offered by a new organization called the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena. Another service is that your membership (n NICAP will be kept a secret, just in case the mere act of signing up might start the neighbors talking. Already there are plenty of secret members, although there are^ some pretty impressive names among members who aren't afraid to have their affiliation made public. The current yearly dues in this non-profit organization are $7.50. In addition to offering the choice of anonymity or publicity, the membership package Includes a new monthly publication called "The UFO Investigator." UFO is the official Pentagon designation for "unidentified flying objects," or flying saucers. 3,600 M.P.H. The first issue, just off the press, reveals for the first time that a Civil Aeronautics Administration radar operator tracked four UFOs flying over California at speeds up to 3,600 mph last spring. The circumstances were similar to past radar sighting which could not be identified as conventional aircraft. The magazine promises to keep members up to date on similar future sightings. The first issue also revealed that the former head of the U. S. Central Intelligence Agency, Adm. Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter had become a member of the board of directors of NICAP. Hillenkoetter recently retired from the Navy and is now with a shipoing firm in New York. The CIA which he headed is Uncle Sam's top intel- legence agency. Another retired admiral, Delmer S. Fahrney, is a founder of the organization. Fahrney is a pioneer of guided missile development. Still another member is Maj. Dewey Fournet, a former investigator of UFO reports for the Air Force. Others include retired generals, air line pilots, college professors, ministers and busi-. nessmen. , Profitable Career Donald Keyhoe, a retired Marine major and author of three best-selling, flying saucer books, is the director of NICAP and editor of the new^ magazine. He has made flying saucers a highly profitable career. In the process he has worked up a feud with the SAUCERS OR PHENOMENA? Thli provocative photo of three years ago was made by a Coast Guard photographer at Salem, Mass., after he saw the strange objects in the sky. Air Force on the subject.

"We will a big plot cooking to keep the seek to expose the fake, crackpot real facts on saucers from the public.

Doubts Reports He doubts reports of competing writers who claimed to have ridden in flying saucers and interviewed passengers from outer space. He says a special NICAP committee will give such claimants lie-detector tests and analyze their reports if they will submit to this.' In offering ' to keep names of members secret at their request Keyhoe admits that just an interest in flying saucers could make a person the object of ridicule. He says many airline pilots hays been ordered not to report any UFO sightings for this reason. In a statement of personal pol< icy on saucers, published in the first edition of the magazine, Key* hoe says: "I consider that' the evidence that the UFOs are real and are interplanetary machines is con« elusive. But I am making every effort to be neutral in nay approach to new evidence. "The opinions of our special advisors and the board of governors will far outweigh my own personal convictions in final evaluations." Dining on Superstition a La Carte?

Whenever a readei begins a letter with those words a list of her husband's faults is sure to follow. After years of reading such letters I am beginning to wonder if the woman who — even in her own thoughts — always adds "but" after the declaration, "I love my husband," really does love him. Isn't it more likely that what she feels is, "I would love my husband of he weren't the way he is"? And that, of course, isn't love at all. A woman who really loves her husband loves him as he is. If she instead, she is thankful for his good qualities and makes sure that others know what they are. ' She 's Not Perfect And if she can see herself as clearly as she can see her husband, she knows that she isn't perfect, either, that for every fault she puts up with in her husband he is putting up with a fault of hers. Any woman who catches herself i thinking, "I love my husband, but . . ." ought to examine the iove she proiesses. It may shock her to learn that times. Despite the dramatic development of nutrition and medicine in our time, we still have a mass of harmful, costly and very silly superstitions to overcome.
