PAGE EIGHT. THE POSTVILLE HERALD, POSTVILLE, IOWA WEDNESDAY, APRIL Mdrginal ^r? Notes* Highlight of the Iowa Press Association convention in Dcs Moines last week was the address by R. H. Markham. ace foreign correspondent for the Christian Science Monitor. Mr. Markham spent most of his adult life in the Balkan States and in 1946 was escorted to the border of the Russian controlled area and told to be on his way home. He saw plenty of Russian brutality and his talk was intended to awaken his listeners to the perils Communism holds for the future. Henry Wallace, he warned, was the most dangerous person in this country. He didn't accuse him of toing a Communist but rather a "front" through whom the "commies" are working to gain a foothold in the United States. Replying to a question as to whether the Communist party should be outlawed here. Mr. Markham quite positively replied, "By no means. It js much easier to fight the growth of the movement by allowing the party to exist and through their activities learn who are the real leaders in this menacing organization." * » * * » The press association has been entertained by the Greater Des Moines association for more than 30 years. On the final night of each of these sessions a banquet is spread for the guests. The toastmaster Friday night in comparing conditions of 30 years ago and today pointed out that the price of the first dinners was 60c per plate and this year the cost was $12 per plate—and there was nothing elaborate about the -affair either. « * • V s All northeastern Iowa publishers "were pleased at the election of R. P. Strauch of Elgin as a member of "Maybe we ought to have the WATERS* milkman deliver our milk to you while we're away. Mother isn't sure the milk will be as good where we're ffoing. And somecne ousht to have the best." For Pure Pasteurized Milk, Cream, Chocolate Drink and Cottage Cheese Call 38-F-63. the board of directors of the Iowa Press Association. "Rich," (or The Senator, as he is affectionately called) has been a hard worker for the welfare of not only the state association, but also of the Northeastern Iowa Press Association of which he was the organizer -and a prime mover since its birth back in 1931. He should lend dignity and strength to the group who handle the business affairs of the association between conventions. * • • • • Now that we expect to be out of a job within a month or so, we got offers to assist other publishers over rough spots from all sections of the state. They've all worked too hard and want a vacation. If we would take on these calls for help we could spend a week or two in Jefferson, another like period in southeastern Iowa towns and Ihen go up into the northwest corner of the state. But up here in northeastern Iowa is where the help situation is the most serious and if we would follow through with our semi-serious offer that we'd be available "on call," our time would be all taken up on short trips to nearby shops for 2 or 3-day stands. SCHOOL NEWS. * • • • * POSTVILLE •.QU^lbtbl Over a period of 34 years attending conventions many friendships are formed among the men in the same line of work. Our sale of the Herald and subsequent retirement from the newspapering field brought many expressions of surprise and regrets from "the boys." The kind and complimentary things said of our efforts were appreciated, but the most gratifying have been the nice things the folks back home here have passed out to us since the news of our selling broke. After all, those away from here don't have everyday contact with us as do the folks at home—so we're glad we haven't made too many enemies among those with whom we've lived and worked for close to 35 years. • • * * • Now that our days as an editor are numbered here, don't ask us to take a parting "shot"' at this or that pet peeve of yours. We've had several such requests and we are turning a deaf ear on them. During our 34 years here we've done a lot of crusading for various community projects, always with the thought in mind that they were of lasting benefit to this community. Most of them turned out to be such. Others were floperoos—and we aren't too proud of them—but our intentions at the time were sincere. We're going to leave all fu-^ ture "community building" projects in the hands of the young men who will succeed us May 1. We want to step graciouslyj out of the picture— so please don't make us say "no" to last-minute chestnut pulling requests. The biggest attraction in town— the digger at work on the Schutte building.

The program will consist of vocal, instrumental and piano solos, and instrumental groups. All parents of the Junior High students are invited to attend this program. The poppy posters were judged for the annual poppy poster contest. In class I Laszlo Estergalyos received first prize and Shirley Topel second. In class II Velder Schultz received first prize. Dut to illness some of the pupils were unable to finish their posters on time. The posters receiving honorable mention were made by Phyllis Mork and Jean Christofferson. At Teachers Relays. Although Postville High's venture Saturday in the Teachers College Relays did not result in taking any honors, it proved a highly successful experience for the Pirate entries. Considering the fact that all the boys were competing in the first track meet any of them had ever seen, they turned in outstanding performances, - Competing against runners from Waterloo, Cedar Rapids, Dubuque and over twenty other schools In the three events they entered, the Postville runners made good showings each time. Jack Schultz and Jim Malone were the Pirate entries in the 100-yard dash. Jack ran in the first qualifying. heat and didn't qualify, but did place fourth nosing out a West Waterloo entry for the place. Jim ran in the third heat and was just barely edged out of first, but qualified by pladng second. Then in the semifinal heats Jim did not qualify further but did cross the finish line ahead of a McKinley of Cedar Rapids runner. ' The Pirates also entered the 440- yard and the 880-yard relays. Both relays were run in several sections with the final winners being determined on a time basis. Postville's 440-yard relay team, running in the order of Jack Schultz. Bob Douglass, Arvid Anderson and Jim Malone came in second in their section, being beaten by a fraction of a step by the Manchester team. Neither team was awarded a place on the time basis. Postville's 880- yard relay team, running in the order of Jim Malone, Jack Meyer, Arvid Anderson and Jack Schultz again came in second, this time about three steps behind the Oelwein team. Oelwein's time was good enough for a third place but once again Postville didn't quite win a place in the final tabulation. The Pirates will continue to keep abreast of track by entry in the Comet Relays at Charles City, Fri-i day, April 23. In addition to the same events, the Pirates will probably compete in the high jump, broad jump, shot put, discus throw and football throw. To Widen Iowa Roads For Greater Safety The decision of the State Highway Commission to make all paved primary roads in Iowa 22 feet wide through construction of safe shoulders was praised today by J. C. Roderick of Fort. Dodge, vice president of the Motor Club of Iowa and chairman of the Civic Affairs committee. The 8,300,000 dollars available after 1950 should enable the commission to complete the job of eliminating highway hazards which still exist, by widening narrow bridges and culverts, and building four lane highways, Roderick continued. Mr. Roderick states that this will go a long way toward reducing the number of highway accidents in the state by providing lhe necessary safety clearance for passing cars and eliminating to a large degree the danger from skidding caused by unsafe shoulders. Surveying and actual construction are now under way in various parts of the state. State and local law enforcement agencies also come in for praise from Mr. Roderick. He points out that there has been an increase of approximately 100 per cent in the conviction of drunken drivers during the past year. "A continued tough but fair enforcement of all traffic regulations and convictions where convictions are needed will make the streets and highways of Iowa safer for all of us." Mr. Roderick declares. In a recent hail storm. Red Oak was pelted with stones bigger than eggs and a number of cars received badly dented tops and fenders. At Villisca stones as big as baseballs were reported.
