This school year our kitchen and lunchrooms were newly painted. A hot water heater was installed in the kitchen during the latter part of last school year. We also have a different refrigerator for our kitchen and have re-arranged our kitchen so the cooking area is nearer the exhaust fan. This year, the first of the grade school children arrive for their lunches at 11:30 a. m. and the high school students come at 12:15. This means a shorter noon hour. There are 12 student helpers.

Special Events — After one week of school the organizations have begun to take action. The paper staff has met and it Have you thought About your retirement? Few people will dispute the saying that the only thing constant is change. During the past 25 years you've witnessed perhaps more changes than any other generation in history. Some of them have had little to do with you directly; others li".v? been vital to your well-being. During thoso years, you've grown older, presumably wiser, you're probably better off financially . . . and yruVf come a lot closer to retirement. But, even the law that helps you to retire, social security, has changed during those years — 12 times to be c.xac!. The latest change, affecting more than four million people, may he one that directly affects yen. For instance, you probably already know that it's now possible for you to retire at <!:>. But do you know exactly what happens if you do? And do you really want to retire? You can get the information necessary to answer "yes" to the first question. But in the second, you will have to der-ide for yourself. You don't have to retire at 62, 65, 70, or any other aj-e for that matter. If you do retire at 65, you will receive your full benefits from social security. If you retire before that age you will get less, (20 per cent less if you retire at the minimum aye, 62). On the other hand, you can earn up to $1,200 a year while you are retired and still draw the same benefit you w.juld get if you didn't work. Pension plans and insurance do inn count in the $1,200 — only your earnings. Not only that, yum wife and children may be entitled to benefits when you retire. With a little figuring, a healthy worker, employed at a steady job, might still find he can earn more and save more for his retirement by working more. There's a good chance that he would never retire at 62, perhaps not even at 65. If this is true, then who are the peopfle that the changed law helps? It helps those people who are in poor health, and those who might not be working. It helps victims of technological Unemployment or of long lay-offs — victims of forced retirement. These are the people who will benefit most directly. Yet, you benefit in general fnarn the extra protection of the law. If you have all the facts, you can make a wise choice. Write or stop in at your local social security office and get all the information. Avoid being a "quick- change" artist. Take the time , titudy this change. As you ) ; row older you'll recall that you were wiser if you do. Series H bonds are Extended for 10 years Series H United States savings bonds issued between June 1952 and January 1957 have, been extended an additional ten years, according to Forrest B. Claxton of Fayette, volunteer savings bonds co-chairman in Fayette county. "This is the first time in history the Treasury Department has ever extended a current-income bond," the chairman said. "Holders of these Series 11 savings bonds will be notified by the Treasury Department of HIP extension privilege granted them when they receive their next to the last interest check. Owm •,-. will not have to do anything about extending their H bonds. This is automatic. As long as tho II Irnd is not cashed, the owner will continue to receive interest checks twice-a-year for a full 10 years at the new, higher rate of interest — a straight throe and three-fourths per cent annually. "lowans will be especially pleased with this extension privilege since more Series H bonds have been sold in Iowa than any state in the natwn except Illinois." REGULAR MEETING Tho American Legion and Auxiliary will hold their regular meeting Thursday, Sept. 7, at 8 p. m. in the Legion hall at Fayette. |ev<jnth Grade — by Merlin?
