Likewise. Rep. Arch W. McFarlane of Waterloo, the dean of the legislature, is expected to seek his office again this time. ''Mother says, 'Drink lots of WATERS' PASTEURIZED Milk.

NORTMSIOi POVTVILLE • <?^38P62 DANCE WHITE SPRINGS BALLROOM McGregor, Iowa SAT., MAR. 27 Music By ARNIE STUHR'S BAND COMING—SAT., APRIL 3: —That All-Star Radio Band THE CASTLE CLt'B MacNIDKR. In 1940 General Hanford Mac- Nider of Mason City was Iowa's favorite son at the national convention in Philadelphia. This year he hopes to go back again as a delegate-aMarge on the Ioivn delegation of 23. He already has the backing of his own county and of Webster county. SPANGLER. What is National Committeeman Harrison E. Spangier of Cedar Rapids going to do? Will he seek reelection to his present post? Or will he retire? So far the veteran campaigner, who once headed the national Republican committee, hasn't given any indication whether he will again be a candidate. If he isn't, there will be a rush for the job. Best bet at this time is that if he wants it again, he can get it, with or without opposition. TAXPAYERS. Members of the Iowa Taxpayers Association have been asked to give their answers to the question: "What, if any, other specific proposals should we present or advocate." The Association itself presented three proposals for which it asked the opinion of its members: 1. The adoption of a school consolidation program which would provide that the proposed district shall vote as a unit and that a 60 percent favorable majority (or mere majority) would establish same. 2. An annual distribution to schools, counties, cities and towns in proportion to property taxes collected of the surplus in the state general fund in excess of $25,000,000 provided that such distribution shall be used to reduce levies. 3. Make all public expenditures, including charities, a matter of public record available to every citizen. OFFICE BUILDING. Bids for the new state office building, which has been in the planning stage since 1941, probably will be called for within the next few weeks. The building was originally to have been a five-story structure but a sixth story has been added for a cafeteria. Many state departments have been operating out of the corridors in the vastly overcrowded Statehouse during the last few years. FAKE OWL. At Independence, the high school is using a fake papier-mache owl, perched on the ledge of the main entrance, to scare away starlings, sparrows and other birds. NO GYM. The kids at Tracy had some tough luck recently. Fire burned down the gymnasium. The school building is still standing. Built two years ago at a cost of S5,000 the building was insured for $1,000. • SCHOOL NEWS. Second Grade.

The two losing teams played for the title, "winners of the losers" which the Sophomore "Slick Chicks" won with Ruth Ann Christiansen as their captain.

Next week school will be dismissed on Thursday afternoon and will be resumed on Tuesday morning, March 30, because of Easter. We listened to the state tournament basketball games. Some of the students went to these games. Mr. Babcock also attended them, llonday in Mr. Gosmire's P. T. class they had a' contest in broad jumping. Lyle Schultz and Johnny Svendsen won this. Wednesday they had high jumping. Lyle Schultz cleared the bars at 4 feet, 9 inches, and Leon Casten and Keith Reinhardt cleared them at 4 feet, 5 inches. Two films were shown to the high school Monday. The Homemaking III girls are learning to knit which is very obvious, because you see girls knitting nil over the school house. Tuesday the Student Council decided to have the four classes each nominate a girl for the honor of being Postville's Band Queen at the Waterloo festival in April. Later the whole student body will select one girl from the four candi dates as our Band Queen. Tuesday the student body heard the lecture of Mr. H. C. White, a scientist. Interesting feature was when Mr. White selected a group of boys and discovered through the use of a Geiger counter which of the boys had a piece of valuable ore. ORDINANCE NO. 251.
