All aspects of the National Farm Organization were discussed Thursday afternoon at the Grand theater in Oelwein. A large group of farmers attended the N. F. 0. meeting. Main speaker if or the meeting was Gordon-SHafer, a Missouri fanner who filled in for N. F. 0. president Oran Lee Staley. Mr. Staley was grounded in Chicago due to bad flying weather. A welcome address by Oelwein Mayor McCarthy preceded the speech. Mr. Shafer gave a concise and detailed chronicle of the NFO, from the very small beginning, about five years ago, to the present time. He discussed the initial one dollar dues, the $5 dues, the present $25 dues, and the hoped-for goal, of one per cent of gross sales through the N. F. O. bargaining contract in the future.

He atoo' outlined the N. F. O. goal of organizing the entire productive area of food and fiber into seven major districts, with one master contract negotiator elected in each district. Bargaining on milk, meat, and feed grain would be coordinated in all districts, to hold milk, meat, and grain prices in fair and equable balance, he said. The speaker emphasised that the average age of American farmers is now 57-plus years. He declared that with good prices, the older farmers would ease off production instead of increasing, therefore favorable farm prices would help solve the farm produce surplus situation instead of adding to the surpluses. The trouble with many people in trying times is that they' stop trying. Monday afternoon, Feb. 12.

State Conservation Commission parks men say the parks will be open and closed at the usual hours but the State Highway commission takes care of the roads in the parks and when they feel that a blacktop or gravel road could be harmed by traffic during a thaw, they will close it until the danger passes. Picnic areas in most of the parks are within easy walking distance of paved roads and the tables and fireplaces will be put out as soon as the snow leaves. Bird watchers, fishermen, hikers and flower photographers will soon be using our state parks for their recreation and it is hoped they won't have to walk too far-but please remember, a closed road this spring will mean a much better road this summer. has been designated as Americanism month, the local unit of the American Legion auxiliary opened its meeting at the Community hall Tuesday evening, Feb. 13, with the reading of an article on the subject. It was "Americanism" written by Mrs. Wa|te,r Glyn, Americanism chairman of the Nat- iontu America.* : Le;;ior/ auxiliary and read by Mrs. Merrill Glew. To carry out the theme in a practical way, the auxiliary and the Legion each voted to join in purchasing a new flag of the United States for the West Central Community school. Mrs. Walter Ehlers, membership chairman announced the present membership as being 54 which is two more than the quota for this year. The president, Mrs. Marvin Ingels, reported a plant was sent to Drs. C. C. and B. A. Hall for their open house Sunday, Feb. 11, observing their 41 years of service to the community. Following the January meeting the unit sent good used clothing, nylons, magazines and other items valued at $17.50 to the Mental Institute, Independence, and 12 dozen cookies were sent for the January birthday party for the patients who aru veterans, according to Mrs. Oroh Patsey. The party held on Jan. 17 was attended by Mrs. Marvin Ingels and Mrs. Delbert Glew, president and secretary of the local unit. They reported that approximately 75 of the veterans were able to attend. A cash gift based on membership will be sent to the Veterans' Mental hospital, Knoxville, to be applied on the expense of a carnival sponsored by the district auxiliary. Refreshments were served at the close by Mrs. Mae Langley, Mrs. Gladys Buenneke and Mrs. Ray Crowder. Local school closed; Highways blocked Northeast Iowa had another (aste of winter over the week-end as the weather man dumped about 13 inches or wet snow on Fayette and the surrounding area. The snow-storm, which began Saturday morning, followed a few days of balmy weather which had succeeded in melting some of the accummulation that had covered the ground for more than two* months. Snow in the Fayette area began falling intermittently Saturday morning but melted as it hit the ground. A sharp drop in temperature Saturday afternoon stopped the snow from melting. The full force of the storm reached Fayette between 6 and 7 p. m., Saturday, and heavy snow fell most of the night Strong winds caused considerable drifting, blocking some of the roads in the rural area, and causing one way traffic on many of the highways. The snow and strong winds continued throughout most of the day, Sunday, causing cancellation of numerous events on Sunday and Monday. There were no classes Monday in any of the schools in the Fayette area. City employees, with the help of extra employees and machinery worked most of the night Saturday keeping the streets open and most of Sunday, and Monday night dean- ing the snow off the Main street. Tuesday was a cool, but sunny day. Another six inches of snow, however, was predicted to fall on northeast Iowa on We To survey farmers* Planting intentions Several thousand Iowa fanners will take pan this week in the annual survey of farmers' planting intentions, made by the Iowa Cooperative Crop, and Livestock Reporting Service of the U. S. and Iowa State Departments of Agriculture. An official survey is being sent to a sample of farmers throughout the State, asking each farmer to report the number of acres he expects to plant to each major crop this year, and the number of acres planted to the same crops last year. Reports from Iowa farmers will become part of a nationwide report on farmers' intentions to plant, to be issued by the Statistical Reporting Service of USDA on March 19. This report, issued annually for more than 30 years, is useful to farmers in adjusting their own plans, to industries serving agriculture and to many public agencies. Another survey on acres actually planted will be made about June 1.

Additional schooling is related To increase in lifetime earnings Meeting re-scheduled MAYNARD — Because of the basketball tournaments which will be coming up, the meeting of the Parent-Teachers' association which had been re-scheduled for Feb. 20 will now be held at the Maynard school on Monday evening, Mar. 5. Back in hospital MAYNARD - Mrs. Ben Thomas, who returned home recently from the Oelwein hospital where she had major surgery, fell on an icy spot outside her home Wednesday, Feb. 14, and broke her hip. She is back in the Oelwein hospital. Stltche* Jim Walker of Algona had 100 stiches taken in a leg recently after an Injury with a chain* f»«w* while at work neajr Plum Creek Recurring data of annual income surveys conducted by the Bureau, of the Census point to the conclusion that the completion of an additional level of schooling is closely related to an increase in life time earnings. In 1958, for instance, a high school graduate could earn $75,862° more income during his lifetime ( age 18 to death ) than one who had only an elementary education. The difference between the expected life earnings of high school and college graduates was more striking. In 1958 an expected life' time income of a college graduate was $435,242 as compared with $257,557 for a high school graduate, or an average of $177, 685 more lifetime Income. An analysis of lifetime income trends from 1938 to 1998 affords further evidence of the strong influence of education on earnings, All groups, except those.haying .lew thai have made lifetime income since 1839. Expressed in another way, college graduates could expect to earn from age 25 to 84, only 48 per cent more than high school graduates. Twelve years later, however, college graduates could expect to earn 70 per cent more than high school graduates. The differential of lifetime earnings between elementary and high school graduates increased in favor of the latter from 35 per cent In 1946 to 44 per cent in 1858, showing'a sharp increase in the earnings of high school graduates during the period Statistics from the Bureau of the Census, also reveals that much greater percentage of persona are obtaining higher levels of education than formerly. This results in an increase in the average income of aU persons in the nation, but a proportionate decrease in low k'ftiW^j^ite."""" :ihc*^ef $7 'wW'"»m ..WPP w»
