All students who are now taking lessons are entitled to continue their free lessons throughout the summer, and students who will be entering the Postville school next fall are also invited to avail themselves of this opportunity. Beginners are always needed to build the band up and keep it going, and for the average student, summer is the ideal time to start. Since the instructor is free to devote his full time to lessons, he can give a great deal more individual help during the summer than during the school year. Contact Mr. Colton at school, or by calling 307-W, this week, to make arrangements for enrolling in a beginners class. Parents of band members are urged to make every effort to see that their children are able to attend lessons, band rehearsals, and concerts throughout the summer. Through summer lessons, players progress steadily, and don't experience a summer slump. The band can present its best concerts only when all members are present, and the community deserves the best in concerts for the splendid backing and financial support which it gives the band the year around.

Everyone likes to eat, and this bvnch of Seniors is no exception: so the group stopped for breakfast in Marshalltown. Everyone took advantage of those few minutes in which to eat and stretch his cramped legs. Everyone crawled back into the bus after breakfast and at S:00 o'clock the bus arrived at the State College campus. Those who wished took the two hour aptitude tests to see what they were qualified for in life; and those who figured they had taken enough already in school journeyed here and there and browsed around in near-by buildings and got used to the campus in general. At 11:00 o'clock the class took in the big parade of 75 floats of all colors, kinds and descriptions. A piano, telephone, merry- go-round, a slave driving teacher, beautiful girls and many attractions aroused attention.

Iowa Excels In Bluegrass Kentucky gets the credit but Iowa grows twice as much bluegrass and placed second in total national production of bluegrass seed over a five-year period, according to records of the research and market division of the Iowa Development Commission, From 1943 to 1947 the nation produced a total of 11,147.000 bushels of bluegrass seed. Iowa produced 18 per cent of this total in the amount of 2.025.000 bushels. Kentucky produced about nine per cent of the total. These are astounding figures when Iowans consider that they have always believed bluegrass to be the exclusive product of the bluegrass southern state.
