State News Letter— (Continued from page onel training of veterans. It has refused to certify six-year training courses so far as paying veterans on the job for that length of time is concerned. Heading the certification division is Linton Hainer who says he has made a study of the length of training needed in several newspaper and one magazine establishments. Those who say a six-year program is needed may carry an appeal to the Veterans Administra tion head. They have not yet announced whether they will do this. GUSTAFSOX. Still undecided whether he'll be come the eighth candidate in the race for the Republican nomination for secretary of state is A. C Gustafson. chief clerk of the house of representatives. Gus' friends are urging him NOT to run. That's the fact—NOT to run—as we reported here recently. They are still urging him not to because they want him as chief clerk—he knows so many parliamentary rule solutions that are needed and that no one else seems to know. However. Gus is expected to decide when he talks to many county Republican leaders at the state presidential convention Friday. If he enters he'll be one of the strongest candidates in the field and conceivably could win the nomination at the primary June 7— but as it looks now, with seven candidates, the contest may go to the state biennial convention this summer for decision. CANDIDATES. In Polk County Republicans are still searching for a good ticket for the county offices. Two names which have been suggested are familiar to many people in the state. C. Fred Porter. Ues Moines, former state comptroller now with the highway commission, has been suggested as a candidate for auditor. Jens Grothe, Des Moines, who formerly served as an assistant attorney general, has been suggested as the candidate for county attorney. At this writing neither had committed himself to make the race. 55 TEARS. At Yale, Mr. and Mrs. James I. -Robinson celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary. March 15. Now 81 and 82 years of age, they were married in Illinois and lived for 38 years on the same farm near Yale until retirement in 1940. ATTENTION— POSTVILLE MERCHANTS !

THE POSTVILLE HERALD, POSTVILLE, IOWA Civilization In One Easy Lesson WEDNESDAY, MARCH », No Wonder It Costs Us More To Live These Days Behold the vacationist, poor guy, headed for the hinterland—he hopes. He's going to rough it.' Yeah. He'll rough it with guides, a lodge, fireplaces and wassail. He'll hurry there and hurry back. Why? I don't know. He has some vague idea of recapturing the simple delights of the old swimming hole where the catfish used to bite. Plus a trophy. Why all the gadgets? Why this ponderous preparation? Will he hear, amidst the calculated casting of his fly-rod, the whispering of the wind? Will he sense the strength and dignity of the trees? Will he see the carpet beneath them? Will he find peace and comfort in the rain? Will he bless the sun? I doubt it. He's a creature of what we call civilization—lopsided mentally and physically. His daily life is saturated with speed, noise and deadly routine. Herded into jostling crowds, he shuns solitude as he would a plague. The apparent futility of material and moral husbandry has him licked. He's a lonely frightened soul. His makeshift god is Success, measured by his income tax and what the s Joneses do. But he can't bait his own hook. Some of the great thinking in this country has been done on the banks of what we call a "crick" in my country, at the butt of a cane pole with a worm or minnow on the other end. Some has been done behind the plow. Some at the handle of an axe. Since then we've gained in conveniences and luxury but we've lost in conviction of what really counts. I'm minded of the dudes whip ping the mountain streams of Wyoming while the bull cook and a wrangler, poking poles with worm- baited hooks out between the alders farther upstream, caught the trout for supper, , I'm minded of the nights we caught frogs and fishes! in the backwaters of the Illinois River and then ate 'em by a campfire—listening to the far-off music of hounds running a 'coon. I'm minded of the psalmist who said: "He maketh me to lie down in green pastures. He leadeth me be side the still waters. He restoreth my soul."

It is highly important to test soybean seed for germination before planting it this spring, cautions E. P. Sylwester, Iowa State College plant pathologist. New Fishing Laws Released For Iowans The soybean can stand hot, wet or dry weather. Flax is an ideal nurso alfalfa and clover. Regulations governing (he 19-18 fishing season are being printed and the new laws will be in the hands of all county recorders, conservation officers, and other agencies authorized to sell licenses during the first week of April. The State Conservation Commission h»s by administrative order made numerous changes in the regulations. Most important to anglers was the removal of length limits on some of the most popular panfish. _ including.crappic, perch, silver and j g yellow bass, sunfisli, bluetrills, rock j §§ bass, nnd trout. All of these fish, j g regardless of size, may be kept by i g anglers during the coming year. g The daily bag limit and posses- §f sion limit on bullheads has been re- g moved. The daily catch limit on 1 g catfish has been reduced to eight i g per day from fifteen, with the pos- j § session limit reduced to sixteen.; g The daily catch on walleyed and j g northern pike has been reduced to j g five with a possession limit of ten. i g The daily bag on trout remains at — eight with one day's catch allowed in possession. • The crappie season has been advanced a month and under the new regulation opens May 15. The season on smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, sunfish, bluegills, and rock bass will open this year June 1 instead of June 15 as in the past. The first open season in Iowa this year on protected fish begins April 15 on channel catfish. May 1 on trout.

You ean CASH IN ON SCRAP STEEL MILLS NEED SCRAP METAL FROM YOUR FARM Supplies of scrap for the steel furnaces are critically low. The furnaces thrive on a diet of about equal portions of pig iron and scrap. More scrap is urgently needed, if there is to be enough steel for making farm implements and. countless other products. More than three million tons of steel scrap lie idle on America's farms, according to the latest estimates — scrap that only litters up the place, scrap .-that is wasted where it is. How much is there ou your farm? How about the old car body, that rusted cultivator, those old plow bottoms, discarded tools? Every bit helps —and it is!needed now.
