MofnSS Wild game delicacies to table a-/a-Garbee The menu for the tenth annual "wild game dinner" was announced recently by Dr. Eugene E. Garbee, president of Upper Iowa university. The annual event is scheduled to take place in the home of President Garbee on Monday, Dec. 11. The wild game dinners started with Dr. Garbee's arrival at Upper Iowa in 1952, when a friend and neighbor gave him a beavor which had recently been caught President Garbee knew "Uncle Dan" Beard, one of the original founders of the Boy Scout movement, and in 1940, when Uncle Dan was about 90 years of age, he told him about serving "beaver tail steak." Dr. Garbee says, "There is no such thing as a beaver tail steak, but beaver cooked in various ways makes a very delicious meat dish;" In addition to bar^equed beaver, the evening of feasting will begin with the serving of Gran's hogshead cheese and : French fried caterpillar hors d'oeuvres and hot tomato juice cocktails as an appetizer. The main dinner will start with Mississippi River catfish chowder, to be followed with baked Lac de Mille Lac walleye. Dr. Garbee. in company with Judge W. H. Antes, president of the Upper Iowa university Board of Trustees, caught the walleye on a Canadian fishing trip last June. At Judge Antes' request the fish, which weighed 10 and. three fourths pounds and was 31 and one half inches long, will be served whole. President Garbee will use another of his many hobbies, that of woodworking, to make a special tray on which to serve the walleye. The menue will also include roast western antelope, baked Iowa corn fed coon, Walker's Ridge stewed squirrel, roast leg ot Wyoming elk, jugged Fayette marsh-rabbit (muskrat), black eyed peas a la Ozark Mountains, baked sweet potatoes, Iowa homemade sauerkraut, Iowa tall corn muffins, Fayette butter, Iowa clover honey, Clermont sorghum, Series H savings bonds Annual purchase limit Will soon be doubled Forest B. Claxton, of Fayette, volunteer savings bonds co-chairman for Fayette county, has been advised by treasury officials that beginning Jan. 1, 1962. the annual Itrafc &? purchases of Series H savings bonds will be increased to $20,000. Since 1957 the annual limit has been 110,000. The $10,000 limit for Series 13 bonds will remain lit that figure, the chairman said. The co-ownership privileges will be retained and both E and H bonds may- be bought by individuals, partnerships, pension funds and other groups. Both types of bonds earn three and • three fourths per cent interest when held to maturity, and the interest checks for H bonds are mailed to the owners twice a year. Since the Series H bonds was introduced in 1952, Iowa has never ranked lower than third place among all states for dollar volume purchases, and so far this year only Illinois has reported highw H bond sales. Maturity for H bonds is 10 years, while E bonds, for which the interest accumulates until redemption, mature in seven years and nine months. Peacock coffee.

Peterson said. He encouraged community newspapers to carry two or three editorials in each issue — even on the front page to increase readership and interest. "Thirty years ago, 63.5 per cent of 4f)9 Iowa weeklies carried an editorial page. In an editorial page 'study early this year, we found that among 215 papers — all of which were included in the 459 of 30 years ago — only 40.9 per cent carried an editorial page," Peterson said. The S.U.I, professor said that the community press needs a fair profit to meet its responsibilities, and the effective means to financial health include adequate rates, good service to advertisers and readers, and sensible business methods. He said that the newspapers waited too long to raise their prices to meet rising production costs — their principal financial difficulty. Peterson, former publisher of the Marshall (Minn.) Messenger, reported that the 1950's saw a rush to raise prices, but in the 1960's the newspapers are already reporting a narrowing profit due to the continued increased costs. The. community press could provide a "better image" of itself by self-promotion, Peterson claimed. "I believe quite firmly that not a single issue of a community newspaper should be published without some sort of advertisement for itself, not just filler-type that reads 'Subscribe to the Press' " he said. Other methods of self-promotion suggested Include news stories about the local community press, editorials about its value to the community, and even direct mail, Peterson concluded.
