don smith MARTHA Report No. 3 - Oct. 19 was a big day at our house, for that's when our only daughter, Martha, and her mother, Trudy, observed their birthdays. And, it almost required a national holiday to get everything done. Martha had her first birthday party, complete with eating frosting and cake sans silverware, and Trudy reached the age of (?). Our youngest is now standing a lot, while hanging on to objects around the room - and once in a while stands without hanging on for a few seconds, so think that before long, she'll be walking. Of course, she's still (and probably always will be) the darling of the household and much adored by her parents and two brothers alike. After a family birthday party, with the group consisting of the five members of my family, grandma and grandpa Smith and nephew Steve, whose folks were on a trip east. Martha sat down to look over tne issue of the Upper Des Moines that was printed that afternoon. Now, I wouldn't have the nerve to claim she can read, but she has, for some time, been very much interested in paging through newspapers and magazines - in fact, for the most part, usually doesn't tear the pages (much). It was while she was perusing the UDM that we snapped the photo above. She certainly does enjoy the offset clear pictures and the ads of the many firms who use its pages to carry sales messages. Our birthday dinner that evening included some of my Aunt Allie's great homemade bread, and Mayor Bill Finn's crew whipped up a birthday cake that was a smash with ice cream. As is usually said about such affairs, a good time was had by all! - ? " DO you remember when dancing was something a boy and girl did together? IOWA'S Supreme Court made a couple of rulings recently that were probably applauded by lawmen around the state. One upholds the right to take a blood sample from an unconscious person - while the other declared that a gun is a dangerous weapon, whether loaded or not (the gun, that is). For some time, the blood test bit has been under criticism by some citizens and attorneys, but the most recent ruling leaves no doubt about what can and what can't be done. With its decision, the Supreme Court reaffirmed an earlier opinion that the implied consent law is constitutional. The ruling came after an appeal by a man who was taken unconscious to a hospital where a doctor was asked to take a blood test, but refused. A registered nurse took the sample and the man claimed his constitutional rights had been violated due to unreasonable search and seizure. Remember, after this, if you're drunk and have a mishap, blood can be taken without your permission. The gun ruling was handed down to affirm conviction of a man who held up a gas station with an unloaded .22 caliber pistol. The man claimed he never intended to harm the attendant on duty in the station. The Supreme Court says that a gun in the hands of a robber and pointed at the victim causes fear of death or injury and is so intended t and the law does not contemplate that the victim must inquire if the gun is loaded. Makes sense! try and figure out who the following groups of three players performed for (what university) after we give you their names and at least one year which they played. You'd better be older than 18 (unless you're a real student of the game) before you give it a try. We'll put the answers and another list of players in this column next week. Here they are: Pug Lund 1934, Bruce Sm'.th 1941, and Paul Giel 1953, (that's an easy group); Gibby Welch 1927, Marshall Goldberg, 1938, and Mike Ditka 1960 (George Allen is sure to get that group); Gaynell Tinsley 1936, Steve Van Buren 1946, and Billy Cannon 1959; Johnny Mack Brown 1925, Don Hutson 1934, and Joe Namath 1964; and Buzz Borries 1934, Joe Bellino I960, and Roger Staubach 1963. - ?DID you know the third hand on a watch is the second hand? Algono, (la.) Upper Des Moines Tuesday, Nov. 1, 1966 MAN, eyeing new fashions "When stockings become more interesting tlian legs, I quit!" ALL right, you football buffs, READ with some interest the other day about a fellow who was granted a divorce because his wife would not let him watch a football game on TV. And the Supreme Court upheld the lower court's decision to grant the divorce to the man, who cross- petitioned in the matter. What's more, it was decided that the wife's conduct amounted to cru- ely sufficient to endanger the life of the husband. It was about time something official was done about the rights of man - and his TV programs. And, we've got to admit the ruling couldn't have come at a better time - at least the way the current TV programs are laying eggs. The poor guy had picked out about, the only thing worth watching anymore, sports, then his better half tried to take that away from him. Probably if she'd tried to keep him from watching some of the other trashy shows, he wouldn't have said a word. At least we wouldn't. WE found another reader the other day - George Allen, head man at the local radio station. Alert George spotted the item we had in about the radio announcer who must have been wrong when he said a certain musical number was from the musical "The Roar of the Greasepaint - The Smell of the Crowd". We went too far in assuming he was wrong, because of the old circus ( or something) saying which was the same except for the placement of the words roar and smell. Anyhow George brought in proof that the announcer was right. He had the album with him - and as soon as we noted that Anthony Newley had something to do with the musical we realized the title had to be wacky. Thanks, George, for setting us right. WANT THE GREATEST GLEANER ON THE MARKET — AND FINE SERVICE, TOO? MARVIN LAUBENTHAL, WHO FARMS IN THE RODMAN-WEST BEND AREA DID, SO HE CONTACTED MEIER IMPLEMENT AT CYLINDER AND PURCHASED AN ALLIS-CHALMERS MODEL C-2 GLEANER WITH AN 8-ROW 20 CORN HEAD AND HAS BEEN MAKING HAY (REALLY HE'S BEEN MAKING CORN COB MIX, PICKING, SHELLING AND GRINDING CORN IN ONE OPERATION) EVER SINCE. That's Marvin standing on the Gleaner in the photo above, while his son on the tractor at the right, looks on. Mr. Laubenthal and his crew were filling silos when the photo was snapped, hauling the readied mix from the field directly to storage facilities nearby. When asked about yield, Marvin said his Moew's SM3 had been yielding from 200- plus to about 250 bushels to the acre of No. 2 yellow corn. The SM3 is a single cross variety and it was planted in 20-inch rows, easily handled by the C-2 Gleaner by Allis- Chalmers. "We have run 800-900 acres of 20-inch rows and I think it's a wonderful rig," said Mr. Laubenthal. He continued, "I'll never go back to the other way of combining, etc. I wouldn't have any other machine, because there is none that compares, and I've gotten very good service when needed from Meier's." THE MORAL OF THIS STORY IS: IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR HARD-WORKING MACHINERY AND THE FINEST SERVICE AVAILABLE, SEE MEIER IMPLEMENT CO. PHONE 424-3245 •••••••••••••••••••••••I CYLINDER, IOWA
