Boys aged 16 to 18 eat so much that they usually fill their breakfast-time nutritional needs easily. 'But it's a different story among teen-aged girls, says Dorothy E. Busching, Fayette County Extension Home Economist. Despite the fact that they are growing rapidly, only about one-third eat an adequate breakfast. Result: they are tired and touchy at midmorning. Ttoo often they snack instead of breakfasting — then wonder why they can't lose weight. . Why no breakfast. Often it's because they "don't have time" or "it's boring". Mothers report that their daughters wont something exciting tor breakfast. Cereal parfaits may be one answer to the problem. For example, you serve layers of cor»> flakes or ready-to-eat protein cereal flakes and berries oi grapes and milk: oven-toasted rice cereal or ready-to-eat oat cereal with banana or peach slices and milk; hot whole wheat cereal with applesauce, raisins and whipped topping; steaming farina with maple sugar and butter. Complete the meal with orange sections or a grapefruit half and milk. The prize parfait holder is a tall, slim glass or a stemmed goblet. Set out long-handled iced tea spoons to eat with. Such tempting parfaits may well be worth the extra preparation time they may take. Chattm 1 With Stonev The difference between right and wnong is usuaiiy learned at an early age . . . and with editors it's no exception However, we do believe thai editors have mere than their share of decisions to make as t,; what is ri^ht and what is drong. Witt each issue of the paper an editor finds it hi: duty to determine whether it is right or wrong to publish a pciron's name, right or wrong to publish a story about a pep-on, right or wrong to publish what a person says. And there's IKJ doubt about the power of the press, because the printed word definitely travels much faster and farther than the conversation of the man on the corner. It has never been our policy to stir up trouble, or to pick on anyone person . . . and it never will be. At times we have strong feeling about certain things and we express them. And each time it is at the risk of making someone angry. But, if we didn't feel we were right, we wouldn't print these thoughts. A-nd then, an editor has to determine what is a proper news story and what is not. What may appear to be a spectacular story at first may boil down to the fact that it's spectacular because certain persons are involved. And is it right to play that story up for one perpon and not another. Or is it right to expound on one person's misfortune and not another's. Such was the case with the overtime parking story in this issue. Since we have not been carrying court cases with any degree of regularity, we mulled the situation over a good long time as to how it should be handled. The fact still remains that our job is to print the news. The end result of our deliberation was that the question of whether a city ordinance was legal or not was news . . . and it should be reported. Since we have been lax about carrying court news, the other story possibilities were pushed into the background. Our concern at the present time is with the ordinance, which, if it is not legal . . . should be made legal. And in our opinion this is news and a prime concern to everyone. We are in no way saying that one person is right and the other wrong. We'll wait until it is proven one way or another. However, to eliminate having to make any more decisions such as this, we will begin publishing the court news each week, beginning with the next issue. Each case that is recorded on the docket of the J. P. court or Mayor's court will be published . . . and there will be no exceptions. Possibly this will eliminate a head-ache or two for us in the future, and possibly it will bring more. Who knows? Creek Bottom Comments — By Reuben We sure goofed the last paragraph of last week's column with those double nevers instead of the intended never and ever. It goofed up the very statement wherein we were NOT just kidding. Shall try to "watch it" after this. c-b-c It is indeed delightful for we people of this nation to have a "First Lady" like Jacqueline Kennedy, after the particular variety of First Ladies we have had over the past 20 or 40 years. A spirited and stimulating young woman still in her fruitful years. But Heavens to Betsy let's not act the "damnfool' about it. It is the firm opinion of this little amateur writer that our "Jackie" should have at least a few rights of privacy, and her intimate married life should be the foremost thereof. With the advice of her physician, it should be her decision to make, how long or how soon after Caesarean section she should begin a third expectant motherhood. If and when the lovely lady herself knows she is expecting a third child, we feel very sure she will let all of us know about it, Democrats and Republicans, too. In the meanwhile let us hope there will be no more of the cheap and ridiculous "false alarm" reports, such as happened in the daily papers and on the radio news last week, c-b-c A shapely young wife visited her Army husband at a camp in Georgia. A remodeled barracks served as a hotel for such occasions, but there were not any locks on the doors. One morning the attractive young wife was just donning her black lace lingerie, she had bought especially for the happy occasion, when the door flew open, a soldier stepped in, took a look, stammered, "I'm sorry — this is not my room." A moment later he re-opened the door, and with a big smile he said, "And I do mean SORRY." !:&::H &&!i !!!!!KKH !iH !!H !:fflU:n:Uim!iS^ IDo You Recall Compete at Big 4 fair The teams representing Fayette county in demonstration competition at the Big 4 fair received blue ribbons, reports Dorothye E. Busching, county extension home economist. They were Iva Feller and Mary Ann Metzger of the Illyria Clipperettes 4-H club, and Judy James and Barbara Mulford of the Merry Hearts of Scott 4-H club. The booths which represented Fayette county were from the Jefferson Good Luck club and the Eden Starlets. The Eden club's booth received a blue ribbon and a red ribbon was awarded to the Jefferson Good Luck club.

BedV Sg&^SS oTSS JAMES E.BROMWEU, SECOND IOWA DISTRICT ' The Russian bomb, and the admitted resumption of testing by the Russians, comes as a,hard blow to the hopes of the world, but there was little real belief in Washington that they were negotiating in good faith. — B — There is substantial "back pressure" in the Congress, particularly among conservative Democrats and liberal Republicans against administration proposals, for reasons not entirely clear. — B — Three times ti.e House last week turned back administration proposals: (1) a minor bill which would have given the Attorney General authority to raise certain salaries beyond the provisions of Civil Service; (2) consideration of school aid; (3) "back door" financing of foreign aid. — B — Before the House adjourns there will be aid for impacted school districts (none in our District) and an extension of the National Defense Education Act. No construction bill. — B — The National Defense Education Act should be retitled. The scholarships provided under the Act need not be directly related to defense. Domestic Arts, philosophy may be studied as readily as physics and chemistry. — B — It is expected that the amount appropriated for foreign aid will be less than that authorized before Labor Day. — B — Congress authorized a study of how to eradicate hog cholera. If successful means can be found, it should cost less Ihan one year's cholera losses. There are some misgivings here, even among Mid-west Congressmen. Some think it cannot be totally eradicated no matter what is done. — B — Many people are confused about our policy against Communism. Until Russia got a bomb our policy was "liberation" of Red - held people; then it changed to "containment." The present administration has continued the policy of containment, but more and more of our people want to win, not to break even. The great decisions of the next six to 12 months will be made around this question. — B — I might mention that Congress authorized a twenty-million dol- lrt.c aquarium for Washington. There are things we need worse. ^.ARIZONA Area In Scomdals- tto "Wtftf moWWstfWn Twn 'f ~12 mllw norrfiw»t of 4o >yhfown Pjiosnlx, Arixona'i newetf and finttf y*at around hotel. 180 hmlwt room and svff*i-av with prl- vcrfs tun deck, many hW9 snackbar Idfchsm.
