'••/f The Heart Of Northeast Iowa's Scenic Wonderland Volume 47, Nufrnber 24 Ihursclay, June 15, 1961, Fayette, Iowa KNEE HIGH BY THE FOUHTH OF JULY? Albert Bailey of Fayeite won't have to wail that long to see his corn kr.ea high. Much of the corn in hU garden is already knee hi?h, and growing las*. Mo*t of the corn was planted on April 22, and some of it, whjch a slightly shorter, was planted about the first of May. Mr. Bailey is shown in Ihe picture above cultivating the corn.

The truck was carrying about 5,000 gallon of liquid fertilizer. The driver had just turned onto the detour going west and had pulled over to miss bumps in the road when the trailer hit a soft spot on the shoulder and went into the ditch. The driver attempted to drive the truck and trailer out of the ditch, but the fifth wheel broke loose and caused the trailer to tip over. The suction of the liquid fertilizer as it shifted to one side of the tank caused the opposite side to cave in, and the front compartment to burst, allowing about 2,500 gallon to escape. The truck was owned by the Indianhead Truck line of St. Paul, Minn., and a truck was dispatched immediately from there to save the remaining 2,500 gallon. The driver of the damaged truck was supposed to have unloaded the fertilizer at Waucoma but the tanks base crops during the life of the contracts. A farm with a conservation reserve contract has a designated acreage of land that has been taken out of production and is now devoted to conservation uses. The conservation uses include trees, grasses, and legumes, water storage, and plantings beneficial to wildlife. In return for annual payments, the designated land is kept entirely out of production. Before the planting season started, each farmer with a reserve his permitted acreage of sail bank base crops. All small grains oilseed crops, and most row crops are considered soil bank base crop under the conservation reserve program. Failure to comply with one of these three contract obligations is the most frequent cause of loss of the annual conservation reserve payment. held Mon- Tuesday and Thursday after- afternoon noons will bo dovrtcd to arts and crafts.

A question and answer period will then be con- Ashby staled that the meeting Participants in the feed grain program are required to devote as many acres to conserving uses in 1961 as they averaged in the past two years. Conserving acres are generally seeded to grasses and legumes. On new seedings of grasses and legumes, oats are frequently sown as a nurse crop. Grazing is permitted on normal conserving acres of a farm participating in the feed grain program, but neither grazing nor Survey on public opinion of Fayeffe As trading center is being conducted Be ' tz a L - "What do the people of this area think of Fayette as a shopping center?" This is a question w,hich has long been in the minds of Fayette businessmen, and one which may be answered within the next •three weeks. In that length of time a crew of trained interviewers from Upper Iowa university wil] conduct a survey of opinions and buying attitudes of the people of the Fayette trade Jter- rltory. The survey will be conducted by John Paul Dunn, instructor in business education at the university, who is compiling the information as a part of his advanced degree requirements. He will be assisted by approximately 20 U.I.U. students from the sociology and 'business administration departments. Each of the interviewers have received special training for the survey, and will carry an identification card to show to those whom they question regardmg t _. : OD inj ons O f F aw >tt<s T-i* . *ojr«i,«:. AUC survey will cover residents with- i ft a radius of 10 miles around the city. A random selection of 250 names, representing about 10 per cent of the population, will be interviewed. There will be no personal questions asked, Dunn emphaa- * ze ?> am * al * replies will be kept strictly confidential. It is vital, Dvuin P° mted out > that all per- song anfiwej . ^ questlong hon . es ti y , and he urged Fayette area residents to cooperate fully In the survey. The survey will attempt to de- termlne the effectiveness oi Fayette as a trade center and answer such questions as: Is Fayette meeting the needs of the people? What improvements could be made? and What are its disadvantages? Tn e results of the survey will be made available to the Fayette Cnamber of Commerce, Dunn s t a ted. Copies will also be plac- ec j j n the libraries at Iowa State Teachers college and Upper Iowa university. The preliminary analysis of the survey should be available by September, he said, Both city and rural residents will be surveyed, and the interview will take about 30 minutes, Dunn stated. Questions will be asked regarding buying habits on certain selected items of fam- Jly expense No amounts wiu be asked, however; only the towns where such purchases are made. If the person interviewed will cooperate, Dunn stated, much information valuable to the city can be obtained. This, in turn, may 'enable Fayette businesses to offer even better service to the residents of the area. the Fay- eite children ranked very high in endurance as measured by thc 000-yard run - walk and in neu- ro - muscular coordination as measured by the shuttle run. It is interesting to note that both sixth and seventh grade boys and girls ranked below the national average in softbull throwing for distance. This suggests perhaps that there is a need to teach more games and sports in which throwing predominates. The low scores in the pull-ups test indicates a lack of activities in which children use their arm and shoulder muscles to pull up or support their own, body weight. This deficiency could easily be corrected, Mr. Nadeau points out, by an increased emphasis on tumbling and gymnastics in the physical education program. Parents could help out at home, he suggests, by attaching a one and one-half Inch or two inch rope to a strong branch of a high tree and letting the children climb the rope. This is a method of comparing the Fayette children with otfoer American children of like age, height and weight. For example, the Fayette students are in the honors at the talent show in Fayette last Friday night. Other contestants who took part were Ardith White and Carol Clark O f Fayette. A number of acts have been scheduled for this Friday night, according to Chairman Don R a iner.
