DANCE WHITE SPRINGS BALLROOM McGregor, Iowa SAT., JUNE 5 MISSISSIPPI NITE HAWKS OPEN WEDNESDAY through SATURDAY starting May 12th COMING—SAT., JUNE 12th: PETE DOUGHERTY'S BAND Farm Bureau Urges Primary Balloting "Allamakee County's voting record in the 1946 primary election is shameful," declared- County Farm Bureau President Lyal Mitchell, this this week, as he called attention to the coming primary election June 7. Only a small percent of the eligible voters in this county exercised their right to vote in the 1946 June primary, he pointed out. Unless the citizens turn out to vote in far greater numbers on June 7, they will not be keeping faith with the men who served in the armed forces, he declared. A large number of men from this county offered their lives, and some of them gave their lives in order to preserve democracy. If the citizens of this county do not respect their right to vote by exercising it, they are guilty of not contributing to, good government, he said. 'Elections are won or lost by the large group of people who do not vote. It is up to the rank and file voter to truly reflect the attitude of the majority," he declared. President Mitchell urged every eligible voter to study the record or the platform of the various candidates for office prior to the June 7 primary election. "If a great majority of the eligible voters go to the polls well informed, there will be no danger of losing any part of our Democratic freedom, and we will have a better life as the result of it," he declared. Brakes accounted for 98 failures, -and cracked or separated windshields which hindered the drivers' view were rejected 87 times.

Licenses were also checked to see when the holder should renew. MIDGET AUTO RACES AT WEST UNION SUNDAY Scandanavian sports fans will be able to root for one of their own nationality with all the "pep" of a home town lad, Sunday at West Union midget auto races, for in Joe Gustaf they will have one of the fastest midget drivers in the Midwest Midget Auto Racing Association. Gustaf, who hails from southern Minnesota, spent some time in northeastern Iowa before moving to the Tri-cities. and the laughing Swede, since taking up midget racing seriously, has wreaked havoc with the co-called ace drivers of the association. More often than not the nose of the white 60 which Gustaf drives, is far ahead of most others in the time trials.

MEYER, RUnjje, Most gardeners make the mistake of not thinning their vegetable rows sufficiently. They hate to pull up part of their plantings, and thus allow all of the seedlings to be crowded, reports Ed Cot't. Iowa State College horticulturist. He says thinning should be done when the soil is moist and the seedlings are one to two inches tall. If taller than two inches, don't pull them up; cut them off at ground level. Leave two to three inches between bush beans, bests, carrots, onions and parsnips. Radishes need one-half to one inch of space and peas one to two inches. VOTE FOR Arthur W.
