Yet, if these were the only items' to consider, careful planning might not be too "difficult. There's the farm to keep up too, and the money comes out of the same pocketbook. Farm machinery, easier to get, will compete with household durable goods, home improvements and other family needs for current income. Bank deposits are fairly high, but most folks prefer to pay for durable goods from current income rather than dip into savings. All of these demands on a slightly lower income call for careful study of what the market will offer in family items in 1948. Wise management of family food resources will be almost a "must". European countries will continue to need food. Most purchased food will continue to be high in price. Home-produced supplies of fruits and vegetables are low .at present. Some foods will be more plentiful—sugar, cheese, butter, bananas and dried fruit. Other foods—lard, sweet potatoes, meat, chicken and some canned foods—will be smaller in supply according to present predictions. Ootherwise food supplies will be much the same as in 1947. Home Improvements. Chances are many farm families will want to think carefully before making extensive home improvements. High building costs and shortages of building supplies and skilled labor will be factors to consider. Supplies of building materials are much better than in 1946 but little different from 1947 for certain products. Prices paid by farmers for building materials in September 1947 were up 45 percent over 1946. Small pieces of household equipment are on the market. Not so with larger pieces which require a good deal of steel, or those which use large amounts of fuel, either gas or electricity. Any allocation of steel, or setting of priorities in line with a foreign-aid program, will probably make steel even less available for heavy home equipment. However, clothes washers, heating pads, fans' and toasters are available. Clothing supplies are much better but prices may continue upward. Possible rises are anticipated in wool, cotton piece goods, shoes, nylon hose and furs. Rises are due to higher materials costs and wage rates. Few shortages remain, mainly in rayon lining and good quality cotton fabrics. Production of men's suits, dress and utility shirts, underwear and nightwear is still increasing. The home furnishings outlook is still dreary. Good supplies of some kinds of furniture and furnishings are offset by the complete absence of others. Most furnishings are still reaching retailers on a quota basis. High consurrler incomes, a big backlog for replacements, and the number of new homes to be equipped make demand exceed supply. Lumber shortages hamper production, i NOTICE OF INCORPORATION Notice is hereby given of/the fo; motion of a' corporation, for pecuniary profit under Chapter 491 of the 1946 Co<'e of Iowa, and acts airiendatorv thereto; to be known as FALB MOTOR AND IMPLEMENT, with principal place 'of business at Postville, Allamakee County, Iowa.

M It Pays To Know The Traffic Laws In Iowa A "State Law: "Upon the immediate approach of any authorized emergency vehicle, giving audible signal by sound, the operator of every other vehicle shall immediately operate the same to a position as near as possible and parallel to the right-hand edge or curb of the roadway, clear of any intersection of highways, and.shall stop and remain in such position unless otherwise directed by a traffic officer, until such authorized emergency shall have passed." When a motorist hears a siren, he should immediately pull over to the curb to allow the emergency vehicle to pass. It may be an ambulance rushing someone to the hospital, a Are' truck* hurrying to the scene of a blaze, or a police car on the trail of a r criminal. The emergency vehicle has right-of-way because its mission at the time is urgent. This law does not operate to relieve the driver of an authorized emergency vehicle from the duty to drive with due regard for the safety of all persons using the highway. It is advisable not to follow closely behind any emergency vehicle. NO CHANCE. A fox near Aurelia was sunning itself on top of a haystack. It was seen from a plana flown by Marion Robb of Cherokee, who landed near a group of fox hunters nearby and directed them to the hideout of Br'er Fox. • Herbert Peterson shot it, which proves foxes are having a hard time keeping ahead of modern progress.

When he attempted to use a highway near Sidney as a landing field recently, Leonard Morris came to grief when one wing of his plane struck a highway marker and swerved into a ditch. His daughter was a passenger. The Morrises were enroute home from Oklahoma to Lohrville, Iowa, when darkness caught up with them and caused the attempted landing. Now that cows are being kept in the barn, dairymen needto take extra precautions to produce clean milk with a low bacterial count.
