rAOB EIGHT. THE POSTVILLE HERALD, POSTVILLE, IOWA_ WEDNESDAY. AFMX ^ jj This issue of the Herald marks the end of newspapering for the conductor of this column. We're passing out of the picture and turning the chores over to younger and more capable hands. . . . Our 41 years in the printing crafts. 3-1 of these in this office, have been full of experiences; some of them we'd like to live over again, and others we'd just as soon forget. But generally speaking, we have enjoyed all of then. * » • * In newspaper parlance we're writing "30" this week. But before doing so we wish to express our appreciation to all the friends and patrons we have been privileged to serve throughout the years. Our work has been made easier because of their understanding of our problems, especially during the trying years brought on by the war. While labor and material shortages are gradually disappearing, the struggle has been energy-sapping, and we're going to take a well-earned rest We're going to stick pretty close to the Herald office for the next few weeks to get the new owners acquainted with of people that will be strange to them; we hope they won't mind us guiding them along for a spell, because we want them to make a success of the newspaper we started and in which we'll always be keenly interested. * * * a * It's a far cry today from the four- page Herald of 30 years ago. One month's business frequently equals a full year's production of that early day. Nevertheless, prospects for continued growth are far better today than when we took over in 'those good old days."

Likewise, the opportunity to serve this community and its people today chal- langes the efforts of the new owners who we believe are equal to the task. It has been said, and time and again proven, that the newspaper plays an important role in the development of a community such as this. It reflects to a large extent the progressiveness of its citizens, and helps to encourage its progress and growth. By this measure the injection of new "blood" into the management of a newspaper should be most beneficial to this community. • • • • « Down through the years this writer has been given most valuable assistance by co-workers. Wc were fortunate in having had the services of that veteran Postville newspaperman, the late Bert E. Tuttie. We believe no man who ever lived here did more for the welfare, growth and progress of Postville than he in his 50 years or more of association with Postville newspapers. He was invaluable as a historian and his writings down through the years, bound in the volumes of local newspapers, past and present, if preserved, will serve as a guide to future searchers for local lore. In more recent years the loyalty and close cooperation of our brother. Erwin, cannot be overlooked. His unselfish devotion and sympathetic understanding of our trials and tribulations helped us over the rough spots, and we are deeply grateful to him. Miss Marie Lansing, who has been our efficient linotype operator in recent years, has been a most loyal employee, and we want to thank her too. The newspapermen of northeastern Iowa have also been a swell bunch of fellows to work with. All have cooperated in cases of emergency and we're going to miss them. All are newcomers since that April day in 1914 when we started here—we're the last to retire of those who were newspa- pering in northeastern Iowa then. * • • • • Here's wishing Cliff DeGarmo, the new editor, and "Red" Martin, the new shop superintendent, a full measure of success with the Herald for all time to come—and happiness in Postville in the same full meas ure as we have always found here among "the finest people on earth." WEAVES KUGS. Orval Linn, of Stuart, is carrying on an unusual business there. He weaves rugs. Mr. Linn was crippled in 1945 by arthritis and was unable to continue farming. Since siarting up in the rug making business, he has made more than 1.050 and has purchasers in many states. SCHOOL NEWS. (Continued from page 1) lovely, talented Mavis, Peggy Spencer, who is slowly climbing the ladder to success by hit radio parts. Then there is the supposed maid, Bea Turner, who was once a child movie star. She and her former publicity agent, Ken Timmerman, have great plans for her future career until a farm, chickens, picket fences, petunias, and a farm- minded young man, Bob Douglass, cause tHose plans to go awry. Excitable Henri, Bob RofTman, a clothes designer, finds himself involved in the situation when he brings his models, Sally Buckdaschel, Gerry Hogan and Jean Heckman, into the Pringle household along with Red, Jerry Finnegan, the delivery boy. Finally there is Lydia. Zonna Stee, a lecturer whose sole interests are in other people's problems, the angle of her hat, or which purse to carry. Back of the scenes, these people are taking care of the production tasks: Carol Eberling is prompter; Bernard Livingood is stage manager, assisted by Ken Schroeder and Keith Kerr; Willie Schultz is electrician, and Sally Ruckdaschel, Gerry Hogan and Jean Heckman are property mistresses. "Don't Take My Penny." by Anne Caulter Martens, is being produced by special arrangement with the Dramatic Publishing Co., of Chicago, under the direction of Miss Doris Allred. Kindergarten. Mrs. Lucile Hein and daughter, Kay, visited oh Tuesday afternoon. Ronald Schara treated us to candy bars on his sixth birthday Friday. Mrs. Ernest Overland and Dianne spent some time in our room Wednesday. Third Grade. Third grade visited the post office Monday afternoon. Mr. Douglass, Mr. La Velle and Mr. Bush explained their work to the boys-and girls. The following stories of the trip were written by the children: When I went to the post office, I saw a machine that put a mark across envelopes to cross out the stamp so it couldn't be used again The name of the machine is the cancelling machine. I liked to watch it. We asked the men ques tions while we were there. We saw the mail come in too. We saw a lot of different kinds of stamps. I like the post office.—Carol Meyer. Monday we went to visit the post office. We saw many different kinds of stamps. There were all colors of them. Some were red, green, purple, orange and violet. Cabbage plants may be set out now. Onion seed may still be planted, if it is not already in. Sets may be planted. Onion seed or plants should be used for storage onions. Use the sets for fresh, green use.

On Monday we went to the post office. We found out very interesting things. We were just in time to see the mail come in. We saw different kinds of stamps. There were little boxes for the letters and- papers. One man told tis how they changed the date on the cancelling machine every day. There are six men who work in the post office.—Karen Rekow. General News. The home 'nursing course has been completed by the sophomore homemaking girls. All the students successfully completed the course. Mr. Babcock was in charge of the teachers' meeting Monday night. The topic was, "Objectives in Secondary Education." Iris Theatre Offering "Green Dolphin Street' ! "Green Dolphin Street" comes to the Iris Thursday, Friday and Saturday, April 29, 30 and May 1. Not since the beginning of World War II has any producer turned out a truly big motion picture. When we say big. we mean something like "Gone With the Wind," "San Francisco" with its breathtaking earthquake scenes, "Hurricane" with the greatest storm scene ever filmed, and others whose names have slipped from memory. Many Thrilling Scenes. Tidal wave scenes with the accompanying sound effects are actually terrifying, so real are they as the scenes are presented on the screen. The earthquake scenes are a marvel as well when huge trees and boulders are seen to vibrate and buildings cave in. These scenes are masterpieces of technical greatness. As for the cast, well, the acting of Lana Turner is tremendous and she gives a performance second to none. Donna Reed as her younger sister is splendid in her role, too. Van Heflin is as usual, his own capable supporting star. Frank Morgan has never failed to make a hit. He literally steals the show. In checking over the list of present and coming films there just doesn't seem to be anything on the screen as stupendous as "Green Dolphin Street." Good pictures are on the way, but not of such scope as this one is. Owing to the length of running time, two hours and 26 minutes of the film, there will be two shows commencing at 7 and 9:30 p. m., each night.—Iris Theater Management.
