Entered at the Post Office at Fayette, Iowa as second class matter, under the Act of March 3, 1879. Maurice Stoneman, Owner and Publisher Chattin' With Stoney Editorial Comments - - - The U. S. Patent System The U. S. patent system has seemed about ns impregnable an institution as one can imagine. There have been criticisms of certain of its provisions, and proposals for changes. But the principle of it has rarely been attacked for the reason that it is evident that the invention and discovery of useful and wanted products must be .suitably rewarded if people and institutions are to devote the time, the energy, the money and the knowledge that is needed, and are to accept the ever- present risks of failure. But a ne« proposal would all but eliminate patent protection for an extremely important enterprise-the pharmaceutical industry. A drug patent would be limited to a mere three years, as against the present 17 years which applies to all patents. After that three- year interval, the law would require the discoverer and developer to license a drug's production to all comers, including competitors, with royalties set at certain maximums. There has been much discussion, pro and con. of this revolutionary proposal. One of the most effective statements against it was presented to the Senate Subcommittee concerned by Dr. Vannevar Bush -a scientist, author, inventor and educator who has held high posts within and without the government. Dr. Bush now heads one of the leading pharmaceutical companies. However, he emphasizes that he did not join this concern". . . in order to make money; I attended to that aspect of my affairs adequately when I was young. I joined U 'Cause. 1 wanted to participate in the exciting venture of creating new drugs to cure men's ills. . . ." Dr. Bush does not think the patent system perfect, and he lias made suggestioas for changes. He is convinced, however, "that the patent system is an essential part of our free enterprise system", and "that it has lioen responsible for a significant part of the great technical and industrial advance of this country. . ." He adds that when and if a revision of it is made ". . . it must be done on an overall basis, by a group that fully understands the system, and also understands modern research and development, and that any attempt to do it piecemeal would inevitably result in damage to the system and to our national progress." So far as the drug industry is concerned. Dr. Bush is convinced that the proposed three year law, if enacted, would end our world leadership in the development of new and useful drugs, would severely curtail drug research, and the result would be "a catastrophe". He cites, in considerable detail, some of the enormous steps forward that have been taken in drug development, and of the high hopes that are held for the work of the future. And he makes this point:' ". . . when everybody and his brother can obtain a license, neither the patent holder nor any licensee can afford to spend the money necessary for years of clinical tests, for prosecuting the new drug application, and for familiarizing doctors with the drug." Dr. Bush goes on to say that in the pharmaceutical industry, only about one patent out of 10 ever comes into real use. And when a pharmaceutical company is conducting research on drugs, it is fortunate if one in six of its programs result in even one salable product. So: "The successful one has to pay for all the others that result in patents never used, and for the greater number of ventures that never even get to the patent stage. Royalties under licenses issued to all comers just will not do it, since none of the, many licenses can hope to earn enough to afford to develop tho market." Near the end of his eloquent statement, Dr. Bush said this: ". . .no man will deny that we live in' hazardous times, and that a great war might be started, perhaps by accident or irresponsibility. If it came it would be far more terrible than any war in history. This time, in addition to' hydrogen bombs, with their burns and radiation, we might meet also a still more appalling weapon in the hands of men with no conscience; biological warfare. This is no time to weaken our medical system, or the pharmaceutical industry which supports it." Homemakeis Dateline by Dorothye E. Busching Fayette County HOME ECONOMIST How are your windows treating you? Or how are. you treating ' your windows? The windows in - your home can do much for'your decorative scheme, if you will let them! One of the popular current trends in window' treatment is to the use of shutters and decorative shades. These shades may be fab- »ric covered, decorated with stencils or trimmed with elegant borders and fringes. Look at the windows Tn issues of current magazines for • colorful examples of decorative ' shades! D-E-B One common misconception about carpeting is that "broadloom" • is a trade name. This is the reply £homemakers. gave most often in a recent poll when asked to name the leading carpet brand. Actually tfthls term is used to describe the width of carpeting^ It refers to a seamless carpet produced in widths from 6 to 18 feet "Broadloom" —- ,„ — » .... does not refer to any particular brand, grade or weave. D-E-B Puzzled by the many kinds of furniture polish available on the market today? The first thing for you to do is discover the kind of finish already on your furniture. Today, most furniture has surfaces produced by use of lacquers and synthetics. These finishes are dulled by oil base polishes. Their smooth luster is best maintained by use of furniture wax. And with wax, remember that the thinner the film of wax, the better the polish. Whatever you choose to use, read the label on the bottle or can before you buy. Then you will be sure the polish ingredients are suitable for your furniture. D-E-B For a quickie way to dampen clothes for ironing, you might like to use an empty spray bottle from window cleaner. The spray device works like a dream to dampen clothes quickly and evenly! D-E-B Did you know that a fiber identification label is now required on every garment and every bolt of yard goods shown in stores? This label is required by Act of Congress of the United States. The Textile Fiber Products Identification Act requires that every fiber in the fabric be identified by generic ( family ) name. For example, the popular fabric dacron is a trade name for the polyester family. Other trade names for 'this family include Kodel, Fortrel and Vycron. Next time you shop for fabrics and garments-, look at the label! D-E-B The booklet "Shopper's Guide to Fiber Families and Clothing Care" is available at the Extension Office, Fayette. This booklet contains detailed information on this recent law, the family or generic names of all fibers and the popular trade names under which many of these are sold, as well as special facts or characteristics about these fibers and their care which every consumer should know. If you would like this booklet, drop us a card asking for CI-447 and we will send it to you at no charge. D-E-B For colorful ice cubes the children will love, add liquid food color to a pint of water and pour into ice cube trays. When frozen you may want to store them in a plastic bag in the freezer. They may be removed quickly and easily from the plastic bag, rather than having to struggle loosening them from the ice cube tray. D-E-B Don't forget to drop us a card asking for bulletin CI1447!

Action ot depositors pre­ vents closing of old established Fayette banking house. —•— 4© Years Ago — Earl Ferris of Hampton is a new member of the Iowa State Board of Agriculture from the Third Congressional district, share holders of the First National Bank all the old directors were elected as follows: W. N. Clothier, George S. Hartman, Peter Graf, George A. Lewis, Theo. Mlehe, W. B. Stevenson, Charles Tireman, F, E. Sanders, E. N. Hartman, Th»s. Alderson, and F. E. Finch. The year past was reported as a prosperous year for the bank. The Rev. and Mrs. Butlers had, as guests over Christmas two' nephews of the former, Leonard and Wilfred Butler of Kent, England. They have been in this country about a year and during that time have been employed on farms near Nora Springs. Owing to their inexperience as farm helpers they have received about $40 per month for their services, and out ot that amount they have saved enough to bring their father arid mother to this country. Deaths;, Leonard G. Cochran; Frank Chesley; Gus Doerfler, Creek Bottom Comments — By Reuben Well, it appears that our bubble has finally burst and the cynics whe said "it wm'l work here" proved to be right. The plastic machinery has 1 M <n removed from the Epco plant and it apnears there is no possibility of getting it back. The one nice thing about it is that a few of us had for a fleeting moment the pleasure of thinking we were doing something for Fayette. And those who did not invest have their money safely hidden away with the knowledge that they have yet to make the mistake of trying to help the town progress. ( understand, of course, that we realize not all of those who failed to invest are against progress. Some had other reason for not investing. ) But, all is not yet lost. The investment is still good. . . but in another town. That is, the investment is good if $7.. r )00 can be raised by 3 p. m., Thursday, Jan. 18. This amount, with the other $77,500 raised in the last few months, may put the company on firm ground. If the money is not raised .... then the picture doesn't look too good. We, along with investors from Garner and Elknder, were sold a bill of goods, and were the victims of mismanagement by former officers of the company. The present officers and board of directors have been working diligently trying to make a success of the company. These men also have money invested, and are trying to protect -their own interest, along ''with ours. Many things enter into the forming and operation of such a company, which we as laymen, do not understand. And we can only sit back and hope that the company leaders can be guided in the right way for success. It's easy to look back and say "we should have known better", but had we not tried, we might always have thought we missed a golden opportunity. What is that old saying, "nothing ventured, nothing gained"? But, even though our factory didn't materialize, we should keep looking ahead. Fayette still needs more business and industries so that it will never be listed as one of the "dying small towns". And it will probably have to be the same few who will have the next Here are a few reasons why a farmer should be a Farm Bureau member. Production and process ing of food is the world's biggest business. Nowhere else in all tho world is the production per man hour so great, and nowhere else are the complex farm problems so knotty. Therefore nowhere else, is there so great a need for of fie lent and effective farm organization. The 1961 Farm Bureau mem hership v.as just under 1,601,000 members, far and beyond that of any farm organization. The most recent AFBF convention at Chicago had the greatest attendence since 1955. In the drafting of 19G2 farm policy, they showed real courage in both the "pros" and "cons" of the "farm program yardstick". U. S. D. A. programs should. . . Increase economic opportunity - promote ef- ficency - adhere to competive principle - be consistant with supply plunge . . . which just might materialize into something great. In regard to Epco, however, the money is not yet lost, provided the necessary stock can be sold in time. So, if any of the present stockholders wish to invest a little more to help protect their orginal investment they should call Walter Eleland or Nick Breer at tlx General Plastronics plant in Garner by noon, Thursday. And now you investors in the minority may go off in the corner and lick your wounds ... or you can shake off the blow and start looking for other opportunities. Which will it be? —•— Here's an orginal poem, written by Mrs. Max Shaffer in, honor of her two grandsons, one of which was the New Year's baby of 1961. I place your braclet on my wrist And think of all things I have missed. The way a child's hand felt in mine, The way a child's eyes can shine. I love to be your grandmother. I placed your toys beneath the tree. My eyes, so dim, they scarce could see, With tears, for one, who far had gone And yearned for my son's safe return To his son, I now am Grandmother. For all the children as yet unborn Who will be happy or very forlorn, I will work unwearied that the earth Will be Christian, so at their birth People can say She, Ruby Meyers Shaffer, was your Grandmother. and ttcmnntl encourage eonser vation of soil and water. Government programs should NOT. . .Promote price fixing stimulate ex eessive production erode individual frtvcJom make farmers de- IH -ndenl on Government payments. On the state level. 1KBF has been vigorous in effort toward fair and logical reapportionment - pro peity tax relief thinking - motor fuel tax refunds for farmers. There are also worthy projects toward more and better farmer : supermarket patron public relations. As processing and packaging costs rise, this i.s a more and more important tangent of public re iations. At the county level. Farm Bureau membership makes the member eligible for the insurance services, and eligible to receive dividends on purchase of a wide variety of farm supplies thru the Farm Service Company. Many members more than regain their membership dues thru patronage dividends. Also, the newly established hog marketing center should tend to keep other buyers "on their toes", and keep competition at the local hog markets at a keen competitive pace. These are only part of the reasons, fellow Iowa farmer, why you should dig up those 15 "bucks" for a Farm Bureau membership, even if it means doing WITHOUT three "fifths" of whisky, or four nights at the bowling-alley. next month. — B — The biggest issue of the session will probably be the foreign trade proposals representing a new approach to tariffs and the European Common Market. — B — There is no enthusiasm in Congress for giving the President authority to change the income tax rates as he requested. — B — The first major legislation is likely to be a postal rate increase. Even opponents admit that this year's bill is a great improvement over last year. — B — The Cabinet meeting this week was the first in two months and the 14th in a year. — B — Social Security medical care is in the Ways and Means committee, with many predictions that it will never reach the House floor for action. The meeting with Chairman Mills at the White House apparently changed nothing. — B — There will be some kind of an education bill passed this session, but details are still unknown. — B — There have been few Iowans visiting Washington this January; April seems to be the big month for plans. Farwell courtesy A picnic dinner gathering of relatives met at the Lutheran church basement Sunday, January 14, as a farewell courtesy for Jimmy Buhmann who will leave soon for army service.
