Wc arc unhappy to feel justified to ' write this particular column, but that is the way "the ball bininrcd". so we shall not be too "loyal" nor too timid. In 1960 tin- Fayette county Farm Bureau set into motion considerable "active citizenship" activity. There v.-as the committee that selected prospective Committeemen and 'unimitteewonien of both the Democrat and Republican parties. Later, there was the highly suc- ceisfu] "Meet Your Candidates" meeting. These activities were very timely and very much worth while. These things were only last year, 1960. Thursday night, Oct. 2G, 1961, the Fayet'e county Tarm Bureau presented, to all tiiose with their eyes open, the very unfortunate democratic mistake of having only ONE name on the ballot for Fayette county Farm Bureau president. A member of the Nominating Committee told this writer, "it's awfully hard to get somebody to run." A fellow whom has spent MUCH lime in behalf the Fayette county F. B., commented, "We have over 2,400 members. It's one-hell-of- a-note if they (Nominating Committee) couldn't find TWO candidates." We personally sympathize with the committeeman in Jiis statement, but never-the-less we firmly think the second fellow was fundamentally right in his statement. Furthermore, we firmly think this "situation" was more "politically" involved than the above simple statements would reveal. It is deeply disturbing to have heard the out-going F. B. president state that the annual "Opin- ionnaire" program may be discontinued. This COULD and SHOULD be one of the very most effective programs the F. B. has ever undertaken. It will be unfortunate indeed if F. B. member apathy, AND the clique that wants to disregard "grass roots" opinion, should kill off the annual "opionnaire". If or when the F. B. presidency becomes a carefully maneuvered appointment instead of being subject to an open election . . . And if or when the "career boys" fully muzzle "grass roots" opinion . . . That will be the proper time to re-name the organization. Under those circumstances we would suggest changing the name to Fayette County Insurance and Farm Supply. But we HOPE these trends within the Farm Bureau will be halted and reversed. These trends could be a foremost reason to renew your membership. iDo You Recall J 1- 20 -30.- 40 Years Ago| 20 Years Ago — Deaths: Mrs. Louis Talcott; John H. Cline, Fayette county auditor.

A car driven by Supt. A. S. Morse hit one driven by Alvin Burns Tuesday night about 10:30, and both were damaged. Mr. Morse was traveling north and the other car was going south on Main street, and the former turned at the bank corner to go west, making the turn just in time to strike the Burns car, which reached the spot just as Mr. Morse was looking back to see if there was anyone behind him who would make his turning dangerous. , Marriages: Miss Edna Bogert to Arthur Trummult; Miss Margaret Vaughn of Randalia to Bud Crane. .University Players will present Oct. 30, in the gymnasium, the Homecoming comedy, "Go A- Iowa corn has not reached so low a farm price as now in 26 years of production, according to Charles Reed, weather observer at Des Moines. The price Monday, Oct. 23, 1961, was 17 and one-half cents per bushel. Charley Clark and wife were unfortunate enough last Thursday to get mixed up in an auto collision at Oolwein. Their car was quite badly smashed up and Mrs. Clark's arm was considerably bruised. It seems they were going in one direction very slowly behind a load of hay when a car coming from the opposite direction at a terrific speed crashed into the side of their car and bounced off and struck another car behind them in a full head- on collision putting all three cars out of commission. Emil Reutlinger, living northwest of Cresco, lost all four fingers of his right hand in a corn shredder last Friday on his home place. In attempting to clean out the gears which became clogged, his hand was caught in the machinery and was drawn in, taking off the four fingers.
